Week 32 – My first piece of Street Art

All summer I have mostly been going out to the same bar: in theory I like “change” and “new experiences” (hence this blog) but in reality I must be attached to my routines more than I think . Truth is, I like to know what to expect, mostly because I tend to visualize my future and activities long before I am doing them and need to know what to expect. Anyways, after a few evenings out, I forced myself to try new places, and one amazing evening was spent at… Continue reading “Week 32 – My first piece of Street Art”

Week 31 – What would you do if you knew you would not fail? A question from Chris Guillebeau

I feel that most of the 30-Something are looking for a sense in their lives. As if people do not want to just pass by and earning enough money to pursue their hobbies, living in a nice place , going regularly on holidays and having a family was not enough anymore.  Continue reading “Week 31 – What would you do if you knew you would not fail?

Week 30 – Becoming a Foster Family for cats

I have always loved animals but I have always loved traveling and independence too. I always thought that growing up (or getting older and having my own place and a good income) would allow me adopt catS and dogS someday. However, I never found a way to conciliate my will for independence and taking care of another living being, especially since I have no friends or family able to take care of any potential animal while I am away. That was until I learned about Foster Families for animals! Continue reading “Week 30 – Becoming a Foster Family for cats”

Week 29 – “La Sagra della Fojata”, my village festival in Umbria, Italy

One of the smallest villages in Italy is the place I call home. I have moved around a lot and this village, where my father’s brother and sisters have lived all their life is the only constant place I have known all my life. Since I left Italy 17 years ago it has become more than ever the place that connects me to my childhood. Continue reading “Week 29 – “La Sagra della Fojata”, my village festival in Umbria, Italy”

Week 28 – Partying between olive trees and Trulli in Puglia

For the past 4 years I have attended an unmissable appointment on the 10th of August in the South of Italy, in Puglia, to celebrate my mother’s Birthday. Problem is, around the same date I also have to be in central Italy, in Umbria, for the traditional festivities of my father’s original town. Continue reading “Week 28 – Partying between olive trees and Trulli in Puglia”

Week 27 – Readings of the month (on Life, Love, Apocalypse and creating a low budget Startup)

My S.O. having left me for a humanitarian trip of 3 weeks to the other side of the world (more to come later) and my holidays not being planned for another week, I had to remember how to be alone for 10 days. Lonely however I certainly did not feel, in fact the amount of things I was able to slip in just a few days made me think that I should probably make more time just for myself on a regular base. Continue reading “Week 27 – Readings of the month (on Life, Love, Apocalypse and creating a low budget Startup)”

Week 26 – On the Power of Small habits and on Getting Things Done

In July and August the city and all offices in Paris emptied and I was left thinking about how to organize my work and my activities from September on (that is when schools start and most of the people come back to work). Because we (girls) often like to set symbolic dates to change our routines and implement new habits (like new year resolutions, birthday resolutions, “important dates” resolutions) I started thinking about how to be more active, proactive and productive from then on.
