Living the Instagram era

I barely understand why everything is so Instagram-centric nowadays. And I don’t say this because I’m “old” but rather because I don’t know how most people post photos of themselves or their activities with such consistency. I try to spend my time living life, so if there is the opportunity to catch a photo or […]

Graduation Day

Today I have been in Venice for my brother Marco’s graduation! The Rector of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice awarded my brother a Bachelor’s Degree in Language, Civilisation, and the Science of Language. Congrats, Marco, I’m so proud of you! The celebrations and the iconic hat throw took place in Piazza San Marco, the most famous Venice square. […]

Why

“Why” is the driving force that leads our actions. Thinking about most of my failures, I realized the reasons weren’t about what I should have done. I knew everything about the steps. What made me fail was a weak inner motivation. Having a strong why helps overcome anything: clarify goals, set priorities, push through setbacks. […]

Time

Time is the measurement unit of our lives. Everything revolves around those 60 seconds, multiplied endlessly. Without time, we will not be able to arrange a meeting with someone. Imagine waiting for your friend indefinitely because he didn’t know when he should have come. We postpone things later based on time: “Yeah, I know I should […]

Donation to the World Wildlife Fund

Missed a day of writing as per my rules — even if not entirely because I worked on The Social Dilemma article, but it doesn’t matter. Here is a backdated donation for the WWF. Their mission is to preserve habitats, wildlife species, and stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment.

Not feeling well today

I do not feel well. I have nausea and somewhat light-headed, maybe because I’m low blood pressure. I should rest. This is the best update I can do today.

Supporting AIL

Backdated donation for missing a day. Alice, a friend, was doing a fundraiser for her birthday, and I had to contribute! ❤️ Typically I won’t publish donations, but I think it’s for a good cause. The AIL is an Italian non-profit organization that promotes and supports research against blood diseases. The acronym stands for “Associazione Italiana contro […]

Doing or not

To do or not to do, this is the dilemma. Today I’ve asked myself if I wanted to write or not. I had a lot of free time, though I procrastinated this task by reading a book, scrolling the news, and watching TV as I didn’t for a long time. In the last few hours, […]
