So I'm back to Italy, once again; a month has passed already since I left Ireland in August. :( I must say I miss Galway, which will always remain in my heart, but I could no longer take the constant pissing rain, at least once a day. I needed some sun and warm weather, well in this case HOT, the hottest ever!
At the moment I'm living with my dad, for whom I also work as secretary. I have lots of things to do actually, like planning events, designing brochures and stuff...
I'm enjoying learning how his job works, also because he's maintaining what my grandfather had created at least 3 decades ago, and it brought it to a new level. I hope someday to become as good as he is, but not as stressed up. Especially in this period of economic crisis, it looks amazingly worrying how some people are not able to pay back to our commercial agency and it seems like there's nothing much we can do about it. People and factories have lots of debits nowadays, and they aren't able to pay them back.
Well, I'm going to work here for at least 6 months, and then see what I'm gonna do with my degree and master. Me and Niall have to decide where to move together and start a new life, I can't wait :) Sounds so grown up :P However we still don't have a clue about where to go, so we'll see, time will tell.
In other -bad- news, I was involved in a small car accident 2 days ago, few hundred meters far from my dad's house. I was going to work around half 2 and a car crushed into my back-left side of the car. It will be almost 2000 euro in damages because we need to replace the back-left door. How annoying. But most of all it was the fact that I was really shocked. It was my first -and hopefully last- car accident for me in 8 years of driving experience. Kind of traumatizing. However, yesterday I managed to drive again, and even if I was very scared everytime I had to pass a crossroad, I came home alive.
Another rather annoying thing it was that the other driver was a fecking young guy from southern Europe, who thankfully had an insurance (the situation of immigrants here is annoying, most of them are here illegally and have accidents on purpose to get the insurance money in black). What was really a pain in the arse were his parents.His mother dressed up in what seemed a burka or smth similar was basically verbally assaulting ME in her weird language, and then in bad italian, saying that it was all my fault, that i was a liar and a smart ass. Now, I was really panicking and shaking from the accident, AND insulted by this dickhead! I guess that if she was in her country she wouldn't even have the right to open her mouth, but now that she's here she expect to throw shit on other people. I was very very very upset and mad. Thanks god my dad was nearby and helped me out with the insurance papers and now I'm waiting for their response next week.
I know it wasn't entirely my fault because I came out of a side street -that I use at least 3 times a day- which is poorly planned. There are cars parked on both sides which don't allow the driver coming from my direction to see properly when entering the main street which has 2 carriages going in opposite directions. He was coming from the left side -a long straight road with 30km/hr limit- and while I had stopped to check and didn't see him coming, he hit me while I was already in the middle of the road crossing his carriage to enter the second one. Now if I didn't see him coming was for the location of the street which is poorly cleared for the driver's view, but on the other hand, since he hit me on the back side, it means that:
- He was going too fast and didn't manage to stop in time. If he was doing the 30km/hr he would have easily stopped and not hit my car so hard to make it spinning around as it did (it was also going against a post lamp but thnx god i managed to use the break and avoid it for a few cm).
- He wasn't paying attention to the road, because I was coming out at first very slowly and if I couldn't see him, he could have since my car isn't that small and he was coming from a straight road.
So we'll see how it goes, really hope I'll win the thing and get my damages paid. And if I don't, well I'm gonna get a lawyer.
Changing topic, yesterday nite I went to another dark-goth-ebm party. It was pretty good and had fun but didn't dance as much as I wanted to. I was waiting for the 80s melodic stuff, but the mainly played ebm. meh, going to another 1 or 2 this months and many many others in the next few ones. Seems like the scene is expanding rapidly, which is great! So many events every week :) Missed that a lot while in Galway. Although it seems like there are really a lot of youg ppl...hmmm oh well.
Niall is coming on the 16th and he's gonna stay until the 21st, I'm so happy :D
