End of February 2017

untitled
28 days have gone and it’s time to look back at what I did this month!

February was quite a relaxing month for me. I didn’t do anything particularly exciting or extreme, but it was still a very special month and those few events that occurred, were indeed very important!
Two birthdays, a new iPhone, a recurring number and a flight: these are the main ingredients of the February recipe!

A Fifth of a Century…

So…last week I turned 20…and I don’t feel it at all!!!

I’ve never been a “birthday” person.
I never liked the idea of celebrating a birthday nor throwing a party to let other people know that you’re slowly getting old
I know, it’s a bit of a pessimistic vision, but that’s the way I am.

Of course, I do get it when you’re a kid: you eat loads of cake and sweet, receive amazing presents, get your face painted or do whatever kids may wish for their birthday nowadays… But I still don’t get it once you start growing up.
Don’t get me wrong, I might even fancy the idea of doing something on my birthday, but the point is that I do not understand why I should do it “just because it’s my birthday”. If I would actually want to do anything special, the only thing I need is to be in the mood and to have the will to do it.

Take last week, for example.
I turned 20 and I didn’t do anything special to celebrate it. I didn’t throw a party, I didn’t get drunk nor I asked for any presents… It might sound really sad or depressing, but the fact is… I didn’t want to do any of that stuff.

The only thing I did for my birthday was to go out with lunch at Five Guys, which makes the best cheeseburgers and chips in the world, but I could have easily done it at any other day of the year. I do not need to wait for my birthday to treat myself to a Five Guys cheeseburger!

Maybe it’s just because I simply can’t understand how the whole concept of “age” works. I just see my age increasing on the paper, while I don’t feel like getting old at all!
I mean, consider 20: it’s 1/5 of a century…
Nevertheless, I still feel like I’m 16 years old and sometimes feel the need of acting like one, except I feel like I can’t because I remind myself that I’m not 16 anymore…I’m 20.

Plus, sometimes I find myself thinking that these 20 years passed really quickly and I really haven’t done anything I feel as incredibly remarkable and I start wondering whether the next 20 years will fly as well and what will I do when I’ll realise that another 20 years have passed and I’ll already be 40 years old…
Will I be married? Will I have kids? Will I have a nice house and a nice car? Will I have accomplished everything I wanted to do when I was 20? Will I have brought to life all my secret project that required time and money to complete?

Who knows… I guess I’ll answer all these questions in 20 years…

I’m back!

Hi everybody!!!
First of all, I would like to say a massive “Happy 2017!” to all of you!

Secondly, I would like to apologise for not posting anything since the end of 2016…
The truth is that I’ve been really busy preparing university exams and everything, but now I’ve got some time to relax until my course restart on 23rd January.

There is an important update: I’ve changed my camera!
Yes, after 5 year of of service and trips to the UK, Ireland, United States, Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland and several Italian city, I decided to retire my Canon 1000D and buy a new camera. However, the important bit of news is that I’ll now be able to post some videos of my adventures either here or on my YouTube channel, which surely will be more interactive than a website post, an article or a reportage.
I hope you’ll like them.

Cheers,
D.
