I should write a proper update, but right now the real important thing is this:

MY JIGEN FIGURINE ARRIVED!!!!!

Clickclickclick, you know you want to )

I'd been wanting to buy it ever since I saw a picture of it at Lucca Comics last year, but it wasn't available on the Italian market at the time. I was also afraid it would be awfully expensive, but it wasn't, so I bought it as soon as I could. And I've been grinning like an idiot ever since I got it! :D

A real update may (or may not) appear soon(ish). Hopefully before the end of the month.

(Don't hold your breath.)

I haven't updated this in ages. I'm getting lazier and lazier with my online activities, mostly because I really don't want to stare at my laptop screen in the evening. And whenever I do get online, I spend most of the time looking up flats. Which brings me to one of the activities that's occupied a good portion of my time lately: I've been looking for a flat for the last couple of months, but it's not easy. I've visited a few, both in Milan and in my hometown, but every time there's something that makes me go "No." I'll just have to keep looking, I suppose, but it's so frustrating. Also because Milan is notoriously very expensive (unless you choose a sketchy area, which I'm not going to do) and my hometown has become the second most expensive town in the whole province! T_T

Other than that, I started playing the bass again! I went to an Easy Cure concert last week and thought "Right, it's time to dig out the bass." I'm terribly rusty, but it's a start.

I should also finish the Mystrade fanfic I started writing last month, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

What else? I went to see Deadpool yesterday. I had no idea it was going to be so violent. I have to admit I've never read the comics, so it's my fault, but it was really too much. Or maybe I'm just getting more squeamish as I get older...

EDIT: I forgot to mention I also saw the LUPIN III film! My inner otaku has been squeeing ever since! #teamJigen 4EVAH! XD

Free at last. I had the Sociology exam on Wednesday and now I'm finally on holiday. I'll have the last exam (Marketing) in September but I'm not going to think about that now. Also, I got a 26/30 in the Economy exam. I was a bit worried about it because I thought I'd totally messed up one of the questions; well, it turned out I did quite well in that question, but not so much in another one I thought I'd done fine. I'm a bit disappointed, but most of the class apparently got low marks in that specific part, and the average mark was 24 or 25, so I'm not complaining too much.

I still don't know anything about my damn internship, though. See, I wanted to do it in a booking agency in Milan, the one that manages the tour of some of the most popular Italian artists, but the professor chose another girl. Then the head of the agency told him he didn't want that girl because she hadn't made a good impression on him and things got really complicated.

Anyway, since my "first choice" wasn't available, I went with my second one, that is, an internship abroad, and more specifically at the Gewandhaus Orchester in Leipzig. Which would be AMAZING, because that would mean I'd be in Germany for the Ärzte CD and tour next autumn. BUT I still don't know anything about it. Well, if they don't accept me there I'll do the internship at the symphonic orchestra in Milan, so that's not a big problem, but I'd like to know if I have to spend 3 months abroad, I'll have to find a flat and everything. SO complicated.

Other than that, I finally saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! I admit I didn't re-read the book before watching the film, so all the things they left out didn't bother me too much, also because I had found the book waaay too long, when I read it. Only a couple of things bothered me:

Under a cut, for those who haven't seen the film yet )

All in all, I liked it. And Snape and Sirius, boy, I was drooling half the time. The Italian actor who dubs Alan Rickman is brilliant, I was squeeing every time Snape spoke. And how can Gary Oldman look so hot at his age??? Helena Bohnam Carter was simply perfect, she was exactly how I imagined Bellatrix would be. And Tonks was cool as well.

Argh, tomorrow is the big day! :O Here, have a Snape sketch.



And last night I saw the new edition of "Lupin III and the Castle of Cagliostro". That's one of the funniest films I've ever seen. They can do ANYTHING with that Fiat 500! XD And Jigen is my soulmate, yes. ♥♥♥
