“That’s a very Goodmorning”

My mornings were filled with new life, and even when I had to change its position in my schedule because of busy morning, I remained loyal to the idea that HIMYM was my good morning. And that’s why I suggest you look after preparing the eggs Benedict * shared with a nice frozen ** : the champions’ breakfast!

Usually in the morning I have always been busy, once there was the school, then university, then work. But it happened a time when I hadn’t to follow lessons anylonger and worked in the afternoon, and unexpectedly I had time for me in the early hours of the day and I did not know how to use them, and I found out that you can be very productive before lunch .
Or very lazy.

It was a time in my life I was really  full of activities, and the idea of having free hours seemed like a luxury that I wasn’t familiar with. I definitely needed to unplug from the routine and enjoy a little this new time.

And it was then that I began to see How I met Your Mother.
It was a suggestion coming from my brother, I have to admit, that was already a fan…

“Wind, Violin And Spices”

Still my favourite

<<Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.>>[1]

 

The wind howls it creeps under the porticos, raises her skirts, ruffles the hair, creates vortices in the meadows, taking with it yellow, red and brown leaves; it drives the clouds and thickens the seas. Then suddenly it stops and it comes the rain, slow, bored, it fills the spaces with its smell of Autumn by sliding the drops on the windows, getting the objects dirty  and washing away the sins.

“Physics , Love and Curry”

tumblr_np7rqscsu81r4uhhfo2_250They say thatSpringis the season of love . They say. Well, I still have to find out who’s saing that but since the gardens become green again , the flowers bloom , the swallows come back , it seems to be so : love is in the air .
I do not know whether it is true or just a romantic legend , what I know for sure is that there is pollen in the air and that means that my eyes begin to shed tears , my nose to drip , my throat swells up , I begin to scratch like a monkey in rut and I’m more irritable than usual .giphy8If the formula applies to you as well [Spr+ing = Allergy²] you are in the right place because I think I have the appropriate relief for our sufferings : all we need…

“Are you friendzoning me?!?!”

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

Let’s speak out , the friend zone is a social evil that is advancing silently without mercy . It has indiscriminately hit men and women, adults and teenagers, reality and fiction, and the symptoms are different and therefore recognising them is very very difficult.
For those who do not know what the friend zone is, let me enlighten you:

tumblr_mw3582lbxw1t09u03o3_500-1424891256Like exponential diffusion, it is difficult to recognize. This is mainly because the communication between men and women has always been complex, no one has yet managed to encode a language that translates immediately from “female” to “male” and vice versa; communication in writing, as happens more and more often with social media (fb or twitter) or with the old dear sms, whatsapp and email, between the two sexes is risky .

 Graphic by: Federica

The streets full of lights , the cheeks flushed , the hands rubbing between the gloves , the music that creeps in every corner of the decorated streets .
There are those who criticize it , those who love it , those who try to ignore it , who are waiting for it the whole year , butChristmascertainly does not get unnoticed .

The ads become all themed , kids are eager to get presents , loneliness runs over those who do not want to share .
Sitting in a corner of a chocolate shop , 12warm and protected from the elements and resentments, you can order afilled cup of delicious hot brown liquid plenty of cream, a varied assortment of small bon – bon and throw yourself into the soft romance ” Chocolatby Joanne Harris[1]no, even if Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche…
