Full Immersion nel Megalomanismo » English post

I’ve felt kind of caged lately..

Before starting, I would like to say that today I decided to write an English post because I’ve noticed that some of my International friends who read my blog are finding challeging to follow everything I write. Considering also, that today I was in front of my laptop for about an hour and I couldn’t find anything to write at all and now that I just started to write in English I can figure out how to write my thoughts down, I picked English as the language for this post.

It’s been a while I feel different about staying here at the Grave’s House. It’s been a while I feel like to try something different and move out somewhere else, maybe with some other students. I remember that at the really beginning of my experience I didn’t feel this way. It used to be very nice being here: I’ve always felt more than comfortable, most of the students who lived here were nice people to live with and the relation with Judy and Charlie has always been more than satisfactory. Obviously in a little more than an year I encountered some problems but the whole picture resulted to be better than what I was expecting. I felt this way until a few days ago when I changed my mind.

Right now the only students here are me and Sachiko, a girl from Japane who barely speak English even though I have to admit she’s improved very quickly since her first day here. Even though she is trying very hard, It’s very annoying to think that lately she is the only person who I can talk with. Another thing I can’t stand is how Judy behaves with me sometimes. She thinks I’m her little puppy that has to be feeded and cleaned. She really acts like I’m twelve and the worst thing is that I can’t do anything because all she does is meant to be good and helpful. Sometimes I think that my unconscious wants to be treated like this, the problem is that I don’t really like it. I don’t know if you are still following what I’m saying… But these, of course, are not the Major reasons I wanna leave even though they help a lot. I’m twenty years old and I feel I should start to think about me in a different way. I’ve been always the one pampered by the parents and now I’m in America pampered by my host parents. I don’t want this. I don’t really feel twenty years old. Even though most of the time it is kind of convenient, I don’t wanna keep living like this.

Unfortunately, right now I can’t move out because of many reasons, but as soon as I’ll be able to do it I will. I already know how my family is going to react about all this story. “You are twenty Francesco, you have all your life in front of you, and, as soon as you are done with the school you can do whatever you want but now you need to focus on your studies”. This is correct. Respect for my parent’s suggestions. But I also think that move out by myself and try to live a different lifestyle for an year is something I can handle and at last but not least important something that I gotta try now that I have the opportunity. In less than six moths I’ll get a certificate which will allow me to work legally in the US. As soon as I get this certificate I could work like three days a week and make enough money to pay the difference. I will need to think about it. I really feel I have to do it. I don’t want to be under the rules of anybody in the place where a live and most important I wanna taste what means live alone.

When it will be the time I’ll make the move.

New boyz – You’re a jerk

Hey guys! Here’s one of those kind of songs that you can hear about 200 times a day on the radio:

Are you freaking kidding me?!? – Stiamo scherzando?!?

English version
Damn it, I’m totally speechless… What the hell is wrong with people? I mean, sometimes I’m so shocked when I see how people react.

I was walking downtown with Adriana, a girl I’d met a few weeks ago. We had just eaten at a nice sushi restaurant and she had kept some leftover food, a pretty big portion, to bring home to her roommate. After a few minutes, she decided to donate it to a homeless person, thinking it would have been better and more useful than to give it to her roommate. She was kind of hesitant so I decided to do it on her behalf. I look around and I saw an old lady laying on the sidewalk next a 7/11. So I went toward her and I ask “Are you gonna keep it if I give to you?”, and with a thankful expression she made me understand that she was very grateful for it. Just after we turned the corner we heard the same old lady crushing the box with her fist. So I came back and I ask, sarcastically, “Did you like it?” and she was like “Yeah… I’m gonna show you how much I liked it…”. Then she stood up, went to the trash and threw it in the can. I looked at her for a second and then I said, “That was pretty rude” and she said “What you did seemed very rude to me.” So I thought “whatever” walking away.

If this is how homeless people react when you try to do something nice, the next time I’m just going to think “No thanks, just let the next nice person help you out .”

Such an incredible fact, isn’t it? ns2

Versione italiana
Stiamo scherzando? Ma cosa mi tocca vedere certe volte.. sono sempre piu’ convinto che la gente non finira’ mai di stupirmi.

Stavo camminando in Citta’ con Adriana, una ragazza bulgara che ho conosciuta un paio di settimane fa’. Avevamo appena mangiato in un ristorante sushi molto carino quando Adriana decide di portare al suo compagno di stanza il resto della cena. Dopo una decina di minuti cambia idea, decidendo cosi’ di donare il delizioso resto della cena giapponese ad un senza tetto, pensando che sarebbe stata un’idea migliore. Trovandola esitante nel compiere questo gesto, decido di farmi avanti a suo posto. Mi guardo attorno e vedo una vecchia signora senza tetto sdraiata vicino a 7/11 un supermercato molto noto negli USA. Quindi mi avvio verso di lei e le chiedo “Se ti do questo box, lo prendi?” e con espressione grata mi fa’ capire che le avrebbe fatto molto piacere ricevere questo da parte mia. Subito dopo aver girato l’angolo, sentiamo questa vecchia signora colpire violentemente il box a pugni. Quindi torno indietro e le chiedo in modo sarcastico “Ti e’ piaciuto, eh?” e lei mi risponde “Oh si, certo.. ti faccio vedere quanto mi e’ piaciuto..”. Si alza in piedi, va verso il contenitore della spazzatura, apre il box e butta l’intero contenuto con aria soddisfatta. Dopo averla fissata per un istante le ho detto “Mi sembra che questo sia stato un gesto molto maleducato da parte tua” e lei quindi mi risponde “Io invece penso che il Tuo gesto sia stato molto maleducato”. Quindi ho preso su e me ne sono andato pensando “chi se ne fotte veccia pazza”.

Se questa e’ la maniera con cui i senza tetto ti ringraziano per un gesto carino che fai nei loro confronti, la prossima volta saro’ obbligato a pensare “No grazie. Che sia la prossima persona a donare un po’ di benevolenza in giro”.

Incredibile, no? ns2

Wanna win a new T-shirt?

Hello guys.. what up? is everything all right?

In these days, I’ve decided to throw a lottery. It’s something really simple. You can win a T-shirt just writing a comment on my blog. There is nothing else to do. You just have to be the 1000th commenter that means you will need to write the comment number 1000 for winning the T-shirt. 

Actually you guys have wrote many many comments in the past 9 months that means you almost reached the goal.

Why am I doing this? Just for fun and because i think that is a nice thing to do, for me that i like design graphic with my laptop and for you because you’ll have a nice T-shirt to wear! ns22


Housing on Madrid St.

Hello dudes, what’s up?

I’m actually finding the time to write a new article just right now, cause in these days I had so many things to do that you would never imagine. Between enrolling classes at city colleges which is not a joke and doing things for adjusting my staying I’m kind of exausted. In this week I had the oppotunity to know all the rommates who are living with me in the house a little better , I’m actually finding out that stay with real americans is not the same to live with foreign though. Of course, I spent long time with my host american parents the last nine months but I used to spend most of my time with my classmates who were not american at all though. In these days I seem to be kind of a shy person cause i find challeging to support conversations with them but I’m trying to do as good as I can even though I gotta repeat what I just said to them at least three times.

Even though all these things, I’m actually getting use to stay here and I’m sure that when I’ll need to move in Graves’ house I’m gonna feel like someone who leaves his home. ns31

These are some pictures of where I’m staying and some picture of my roommates ns15 (the second part has been added at the request of Mr. Gallingani):

Talking about the college I gotta say that I changed my mind about it. Lately, it seems to be nicer than I remembered. The whole internal part of the campus is a beautiful courtyard that makes me feel relaxed every time I pass through it. The only thing that scares me is this process of class enrolling which seems to be really complicated and demanding for the students of the first semester, however I will be able to enroll all the classes that I need to attend for this semester. Right now, I got classes of math, a couple of classes of my major which is computer science but I couldn’t get any class of english though cause the waitlist was packed up. Fortunally being a foreign student I have some privileges that allow me to have priority on the other americans students but it will take a while longer. 

As soon as I can i’ll upload for you some pics of the campus which for me as I said before it’s really pretty. 

So, see you later guys.
