I decided to try to do a new thing. Well... It's not a new thing actually because, this livejournal was all about TV shows when I started (a lot of icons, picspam, music videos,...) but then I stopped somehow, and I started using this more as a way to share myself with you guys... Thing is, as you know, I am a TV addict, and this is a part of me, so I decided to try to make a at least monthly post where I talk about what I am watching and what I think about it!
I watch a lot of shows... but I am really into just a few, so, for them I might do individual reviews, while for others weekly group reviews or talk about them at the end of the month and condensate 4/5 episodes in one post. We'll see... So let's start, shall we?

Is it me or this TV season started pretty late? I have a lot of shows starting in October and for now my Calendar is full of comedies! That is a very good way to start, because it sorts of ease you into it.

This is what I am watching this September:


So which of your shows have started? How do you find the season premieres? Did you add something to your calendar? Are you planning to give up on something as well? Let me know!!

Three reviews in a row? Why? you might ask... Well, I'll tell you why:

I have watched the show weekly, but the 100th episode sort of disappointed me, and when I saw the previous for the one after that I decided to hold on, and review the last 3 episodes together.

So. Let's dive into this mid season (long) finale review!

7x08/09/10 - 100/Shame/DonnaCollapse )
And now we just have to wait, thankfully not too long!

Did you liked the finale? What do you think it's going to happen when the show comes back! I need theories! Let me know in the comments! <3

My day started at 4 am when I woke up looking for the episode knowing it was still airing in that moment in the US.

My Mac did a stupid secret update where it installed something that slowed down everything to the point of driving me insane. But I managed to get my hands on the episode and - after I watch it -  I fixed the problem! Now I have a fast computer and I can re-watch scenes of this wonderful episode over and over again!

7x07 The Dragon and the WolfCollapse )

WOW! What an episode! I need to watch it again! Maybe tomorrow! Now it's time to go to bed because it's very VERY late for me!

Please comment down below. I want to know how you feel about this season finale! Did you like it? Did it surprised you?

We're getting closer to the Suits mid-season finale and also, the next episode will be Episode 100!  Wow!

I think this episode was a good build up for what's coming and, even if I don't appreciate some of the choices the show made so far, I understand why they're going this direction, concentrating only on Mike and Harvey and leaving everyone else in the background. I'm sure we will see Donna, Rachel and Louis shine soon! :)

7x07 Full DisclosureCollapse )

Also: The Promo for the Next Episode gives me hope!

This episode was WOAH. I have so much to say and I am so excited!

The episode last week was good... VERY good, but this one was fantastic and I cannot wait for the finale now. I know I will suffer for a year, waiting for it to come back, but WOW what a season we had so far...

Tormund, you are my favorite

Okay let's start with the review:
7x06 Beyond the WallCollapse )

What do you think about the episode? Are you still shocked? What do you think it's going to happen on that boat?

I don't have a lot of Suits fan on my flist (I have to fix that because I need to talk about this show) so I rarely post about it, but last night episode was quite good, a lot of interesting things happened, so I decided to share my thought about it.

After an episode like that I cannot just move on with my life and give my attention to the next thing. I need to talk about this!

I've been commenting on the episode with some friends over text messages and I'm glad to say we were all very impressed with it. I cannot wait for Eric to get home so he can see it too and have his mind blown!

Here some random thoughts and theories (?) from yours truly:

7x05 EastwatchCollapse )

Here we go! What did you think about Eastwatch? Did you enjoy it? What was the part that shocked you the most? Please let me know in your comments!!!

Okay. I am writing this post right after the last one, but I will post it tomorrow because I don't want to make too many posts in one day, especially since the last one was quite dry. If you missed it: HERE is a full on summary of my 2017 so far.

My last official random update post was posted on the 17th of July and it was written in ah hotel room in Jacksonville, FL, right after I came back from the USCIS offices and they took my biometrics 3 days prior to my scheduled appointment (they are so nice, I didn't even have to use my pregnancy as an excuse).

Random gif because I love these 2...

This is what happened after that:

♨ (18th of July) I was hoping on a good journey back to Italy since the one to Jacksonville was a disaster (you know, fainting and stuff) but 5 hours prior to my first connection I receive an email from Airfance that says to me that my New York-Paris (second flight of 3) has been cancelled due to I'll never know what reason. So I ran to the airport and I go to the Delta chiosk and show them the email. They didn't know about the flight and the poor girl at the counter had to stay on the phone for 20 minutes in order to receive confirmation of the cancellation. I felt quite powerful knowing stuff before them LOL. The Delta girl changed my itinerary and my new connection was in for DAMN ATLANTA where I have to run not to lose my connection...AS BLOODY ALWAYS!!! Running in the airport is never fun but running while over 6 months pregnant is awful! I won't deny it I was mostly upset of this change because, when I checked in the day before, I managed to get some awesome seats... luckily the Atlanta/Paris one was not too bad, but just because the plane was half empty... But I could not sleep due to my seat, and that was a problem since I had to spend 7 hours in Paris to get to my connection and last flight to Genova. I was a mess when I finally got home on the 19th as you can imagine!

The first ob/gyn appointment on the 20th was very good! The Doctor is AMAZING and very thorough. We like him. Baby Christopher played shy as he did at his first appointment with the Doctor in the US, and he didn't want to show his face, but the Doctor checked everything and he said everything looks great, and there's no need to see me every 2 weeks but we can continue seeing each other once a month. He prescribed some blood/urine tests because in Italy they test your blood every month (while int he US just the urines) and because we found out my Doctor in the US didn't get me tested for some stuff she should have had, like Toxoplasmosis, CMV, Thyroid ... So he was able to see that my iron levels are VERY low (he prescribed some pills) and that my thyroid is in range, but a little bit high so here it comes another pill. Low Iron and an high Thyroid can get you in trouble in the delivery room as you can have an severe bleeding and an higher chance to suffer of postpartum depression. My dislike for the american health system makes me think the doctors want you to go through that, so they can make more money out of your insurance (I'm very bitter on the matter). So if you want to get pregnant and have an healthy pregnancy ask your Doctor to check your Thyroid and Iron levels often! (If your Thyroid is high you risk miscarriages or not to get pregnant) My next appointment is in a week and I cannot wait to see Baby Chris again! I'll make an update about him as soon as I am out of the Doctor office. I always get nervous before that... He kicks like crazy, so I know he's okay, but I want to see him, and I want the Doctor to say he is fine! -9 weeks and 5 days to the day I'll be able to actually see him and hold him... It's so exciting and terrifying at the same time!

Eric left yesterday for the one an only guest trip the boat is going to have this season and he'll be back home by the end of the month! He will leave me again in September to go visit his mother and take over his step dad with the daily care she needs! Things are getting problematic over there at the moment. She has 3 sons but they all have busy lives and she needs a lot of care, but she doesn't want a nurse. Her husband (76 years old) is a cancer surviver and has some pretty bad health issues (his hands shake like crazy and I think he has RA) and he has to help her with everything. She has Parkinson and also some very bad issues with her digestive system (she had to go through a lot of surgeries when younger, and the scar tissue creates a lot of problems to her bowel now). Plus she broke her hip 2 years ago and refused PT so now she goes around with a scooter... that was a big mistake, because she now sits all day in front of the TV and her muscles are wasting... So her husband has to carry her to the bathroom and help her with everything in there, cook her meals, put together and break down the scooters every time she wants to go out for dinner or shopping,... I hope Eric will convince her to get a nurse (they all have tried for years but she starts crying and they back off) because it's not fair on her husband and, in the end, you don't want your kids to see you as a chore... I remember when my grandmother was sick... it ruined our memories of her and it was so sad... I mean, it was not a problem to go and take care of her, but her Dementia changed her and the way we experienced her, and it was painful! I would hate for Eric to go through that...

♨ Now that Eric is away on a trip I have a busy schedule ahead of me. I have a lot of friends I have to spend some quality time with. With Eric is always difficult because he does not speak Italian and my friends (most of them) don't speak English, so I always end up translating, and trying to divide myself between them and him... So far I've only seen a couple of them and there are so many thing we have to catch up on. Flavio and her girlfriend broke up and the police had to intervene (her fault) Ilaria's parents are splitting up, Enrico is still looking for a job, Valentina A. Valentina B. and Daniela are pregnant (Daniela was the one who lost the baby a year ago due to malpractice when she was 7 months preggo... Very sad story),... So much to catch up with!

Stitchers, Suits and Game of Thrones are doing GREAT imho! I am loving this Summer Season!

♨ Eric and I are reading together the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Saga and we're in the middle of book 3! Stieg Larsson is amazing! Every Swedish author I encountered so far in my readings gave me chills... They know what they're doing!

So that's it for now. I have so many ideas for my next posts and I know I promised my POV on the 13th Doctor but I wrote so much about it in comments that I feel like I have nothing more to say... I will probably try to write a post about it after finish this one and put it in a queue so I can post it in a couple of days (I make no promises). I also want to write about GoT and what I hope will happen next... I think I need to make some TV posts every now and then... Also I was thinking about go back to do my Flist Firdays (where I ask you questions) and do a What I Have Learned sort of post once a month, where I can give some insight on USCIS stuff, Pregnancy Stuff and Differences between Italy and the US,... That would be fun I think... Some photo posts would be fun too... Also I need to go back posting my book reviews... So much to do!!! LOL!

I hope your weekend was great! <3

This season of Game of Thrones has been quite good one so far and I expect a lot more from the next episodes.

I don't know how many of you are up to date so I will put all my thoughts about what we've seen so far and what I am hoping to see this season (or on the next one) under a cut.

Awww. These two...

What we saw (spoilers 7x04)Collapse )

So basically I am VERY happy with the whole thing and I cannot wait for tonight. Here are some things I'd like to see... Maybe some of these will happen during tonight episode? Maybe???

What I want to see (form 7x05 to the end)Collapse )

How about you? What do you think of the season so far? And what are you hoping to see next?

But before a quick note:

Sorry I've been MIA for a while now but Eric is home and we're trying to get as much as we can done, he'll be leaving tomorrow so I will have more time to answer properly to your posts and to - why not - post some sort of update! Thank you <3

1) What famous landmarks have you visited?
I've been all over the place thanks to my job and the fact that in Europe is pretty easy to travel with a low budget.

USA: The Statue of Liberty (NYC), Empire State Building (NYC), Independence Hall (Philadelphia), Chimney Rock (North Carolina), New Orlean's Garden District (Louisiana), Fort Jefferson (Florida),... Also google says Disney Parks are landmarks so I visited the ones in Orlando and the one in France :)

2) How has travel affected you?
It makes me feel good and energized! :)

3) What are the best souvenirs you’ve ever collected while traveling?
Memories and Pictures! I usually don't buy things... Sometimes Tee Shirts if I'm traveling with my friends...

4) What is your fantasy vacation?
I'd like to visit China, move to Japan and then to Australia and New Zeland... One after the other...

5) Would you want to be a space tourist?
Where do I sign?
