First, enjoy the sky. Always so stunning.
You ready? Let’s talk!
I have a few topics to go through, number 1 is that I’m finally better!!!
Sure, for the past two days I dealt with high fever, but fever never truly bothers me. If anything the higher it is, the quicker it goes away (usually) and this was the case for me. I’m already feeling pretty good.
But, the reason I’m so positive is because for 8 days now I have not been taking medicines, and I have not felt bad. I eat every day regularly, although I keep in mind not to go overboard with food in the evening. Still, no pain, no nausea, and I’m just incredibly happy.
I believe it’s my stomach being very sensitive, and after getting food poisoning and forcing myself not to vomit, I upset it so much it needed time to get back to normal.
I also found out I’m intolerant to not only to lactose, but also eggs (although they said boiled eggs should be fine, it’s mostly when they are raw).
Regarding the fact that I had the same symptoms earlier – they started a year ago, but would recur every other month or so – I think it’s also just due to my weak stomach. Back then I didn’t have a clue how to deal with it and always blamed it on travel or stress. Now, if it happens again, I believe I will be able to manage it better because I take probiotics, and I have all the medicines that I know can help me.
So YAY. No need to worry about me anymore – for a while, at least! 😉
Moving on to the second topic: school.
I am officially done with half the course! I’m at Module 7 of 12, and in the last assignment I got my second 10. I was so pleased. It was about Colour Theory, and I’m now studying Interior Finishes instead.
I figured I would quickly update you on this.
Also, if you like the cute pencil case in the picture, you can find it here. A marzipan makes them, and I wanted to support her art.
Yes, I got a few more today. I always let out a little laugh when people on my videos comment “are they real?” or “since when does she have tattoos?!” because I feel like they are always visible, but then I realise I do like to wear not-so-revealing clothes, so I guess it’s not so strange that people don’t know about all of my tattoos, after all.
The first one I got, today, is a lemon tree. My dad is my hero, he is just so kind and was always (and still is) an example for me. Considering that he grew up in a poor family, and didn’t have access to many things and didn’t complete his education, he is one of the smartest and strongest people I know.
He is very cultured, you can ask him anything and he will most likely know the answer to it. He never shows off. He managed to set up his business, becoming successful, providing for our family.
He is so good in many things, maybe that’s why I never felt the need to select one path for myself, because I could see him do all these different things: sure, he has a main job, but he has plenty of other passions, like archery, travelling, and gardening – to name a few.
He always took care of our garden, making it look like it came from a book. One of the trees I liked the most, out of all the plants he cares for, is the lemon tree. It looks so quirky to me, growing from a small pot, so big and beautiful.
Anytime I go back home to Italy, I see them (he has 3 now) and to remind me of my dad, and everything I look up to, I wanted the lemon tree to be tattooed on me.
The second one I got is hands forming a shadow puppet. This brings me back, all the way to my childhood, but is still relevant to this day.
I don’t know if this happens in all kindergartens, but in mine, after lunch, the teachers would put all the kids in a room and made them sleep.
I never ever managed to fall asleep, not once, whilst all the other kids would sleep normally.
You may already know that I didn’t really like going to kindergarten at all – I would cry every morning, I would get closed in the lunch room cause I didn’t finish eating food I didn’t like – and sleeping time also wasn’t a big favourite of mine.
What I eventually came up with was to make shadow puppets with my hands, and make them talk to me quietly, so I wouldn’t feel so lonely.
Still to this day, at times, I have troubles sleeping: generally I can make myself relaxed enough by thinking about a train passing by on a summer night (I used to live near one, and although it may seem like a very annoying and loud thing to find relaxing, I used to love it as a kid), but if that doesn’t work, I will go back to my shadow puppet hands.
Here you go, tattoo meanings explained!
Final thing: I’m going to Los Angeles for 3 weeks, and I’m going to vlog everyday for 2 weeks while I’m there!
I’m so excited. At first I was a bit sad to know this period would be spent there, cause my birthday, Felix’s birthday and Halloween are all included, and I didn’t want to be away from my friends… but it turns out, some are coming anyway, so it’s definitely going to be a lot of fun.
I hope you are ready for LA Diary – part 2.
Eh! I think this is all I wanted to say for now. Are you guys planning anything special for Halloween? Any costume ideas? I’m thinking about being the protagonist from Crimson Peak, but will see. I always plan and then, last minute, change my mind – haha.
Hope your beginning of the week is going well!
