Lonely Days

Hello Surfers,

I'm writing this post just because I'm at home all alone, relaxing a little bit after a hard day of study.
My last exam is approaching and I'm really looking forward to being done with all this stuff and start again with new subjects and lessons!

My "postal activity" is doing great. The Travelling Journal is in the UK right now.
Some Postcrossers have already mailed some sand for my collection and I'm so excited because of that! In change I'm preparing some sets of postcards to send to those kind people and I'm so proud of that.

I'm also going to send a very beautiful postcard to China tomorrow; in fact, a Chinese Postcrosser had seen this beautiful card showing the Vittorio Emanuele bridge in Torino at night and asked me to buy another one for him, so I'm very glad to help in this way!

And... last but not least... I downloaded an amazing photo editing program from the Internet a couple of days ago. It's called; have you ever heard of/used it? I'm trying to understand how it works but I must say that I really like it! I' hope I'll learn how to use it soon. Have you got any tips?

Here is my first experiment:

Bed time... Goodnight!  =)

New Tool: We've got a Chat Box!

Hello again!

I've installed a new tool to make our communication easier!

It's a chat box! Look for it at the bottom of the sidebar on the right.

 I hope you'll like it and leave a sign of your passage before you go!  :)

Amazing Postcrossing

Can You believe that???

Yes... I received the same postcard from Minsk from two different Postcrossers!

Difficult relationship with my set of pen-nibs!

Hello everybody!

This is a post written for countrydirt, to show him the very beautiful set of pen-nibs I received in 2009 from my aunt as a present at the end of High School, which I like sooo much, but I'm totally ineffective to use!

I don't know the difference (if there's any) among all those beautiful nibs; I don't know what's the right position of the pen on the paper, I don't know how the use the ink properly, nor what's the best paper to use.

I don't know anything, but my nibs are fed up of being left on a shelf gathering dust! :)

Restyling time!

I abandoned the autumn background for a new, fresh one! Spring is coming and with it lots of colorful flowers. I hope you'll like the new features of "Se & Quando" blog!

enjoy :)

Hard students' life!

Ohh... finally one day of rest in this hard period that every student on Earth knows very well: Exams break! You haven't got lessons but you have to set the alarm clock in any case, since you have loads of books, notes and slides to work out, like a miner with his pickax and his lantern.

But two exams out of three are gone so far, so... I feel justified to take a day of rest after such a hard brain work. And of course I've got a nice flu which is helping me a lot during this nice period! :D
But I don't want to complain, things are going great! I like my new University, after the bad last year; Spring is coming!!! Days are sunny and pretty warm. I can't wait to wear all my beloved T-shirts again! Thanks to the Postcrossing froum I've got loads of new worldwide penfriends and... my Travelling Journal didn't get lost! It's safe in its new temporary home in Holland.

And I've recently discovered the site called "SharedTalk", where you can contact foreign people who are learning your language or who speak the languages you're learning. A nice way to improve your skills together with other people in a safe place. I love it! I'm going to add a link on the blog right now.

Time for a shower!

                      HAPPY LIFE TO YOU!  :)
