Hello guys! I can't believe it's March already! Real life, you need to stop doing this. Seriously.

I finally have a moment to update my DW. I also feel bad for not commenting on my f-list's entries and I miss a lot of posts due to real life. But I'm trying to be more active and comment regularly on your journals! I just hope I can do it.

Anyway. I am really happy to announce that I'm almost through with the second semester of uni! Which is awesome. The semester ends officially on the 31st of March, but given that I don't have lectures on Thursdays and Fridays and all my workshops/tutorials will be over by then, I will most likely be free a couple of days before the 31st. I can't wait!! :D Of course I have exams in May, but first I really want to relax and take it easy with my revision.

I also feel the need to tell you guys about this work I had to do for uni and that got me incredibly stressed like never before. cut for real life episode )

So yeah, because I was so happy that my group assignment was over, I accidentally bought a lot of chocolate. And I mean a lot. As in, "this-will-probably-last-me-three-weeks" a lot. But I was feeling really happy and I wanted to celebrate and something just came over me... and before I knew it, BAM, I had bought enough chocolate for an entire army. I'M CRAZY, I KNOW.

Now, onto fandoms!

I don't think I mentioned it, but I recently read and finished Honey & Clover. It is an AMAZING manga. What really impressed me was how real everyone and everything felt. The situations the characters were going through could have happened to anyone in real life and the way they dealt with things and their emotions, it all felt so real. If you ever get the chance, you should seriously consider giving this manga a try. I cried multiple times while reading it, and the ending... DAMN I BAWLED MY EYES OUT. But it was so totally worth it.

I'm having a massive Leverage re-watch, because I got Andrew (and his family) hooked on the TV show. XD Right now we're almost at the end of season 3 and I plan to watch season 5 for the first time with Andrew as soon as we finish season 4, which I have already watched. I'm really sad that Leverage got cancelled, but on the other hand, I can't wait to see the series finale. It will be epic and it will make me cry, I know it.

I watched The Dark Knight Rises a couple of weeks ago. Expect another rant on that film in the near future.

I am still reading Northern Lights/The Golden Compass. I sort of put it aside because of university, but then I picked it up again on Saturday and read a whole bunch of chapters and I am now almost finished with it, haha. Yay for weird reading patterns!

Aaaaaand, last but not least, a mini-rant on what's happening on the Big Bang Theory recently. cut for spoilers )

And that's all for this post! I will try to be more active this month, since university is ending soon. :D

Hello, DW! My first lecture tomorrow is at 12am, so I decided to write a quick update on my health and other stuff.

I went to the doctor today and got a blood test. I'm feeling definitely better than I did last week, since I'm able to eat now thanks to the medicine. The doctor says I should keep taking the medicine until next time I see her, which will be next Wednesday. The medicine doesn't have major side effects, although it does make me sleepy whenever I take it - but I'd rather feel sleepy for a bit than not be able to eat anything at all.

So yeah, today I did yet another blood test. Tbh, I could have told the doctor I had a blood test in Italy already, but I figured, what the hell, let's have another one just to be sure - maybe they'll find something that my doctor didn't find in Italy. It was just a blood test anyway, it's not like I was in major pain or anything.

I'm sort of facepalming at my doctor back in Italy now, though. first my parents and now my doctor )

As for the weekend, it was pretty sweet. I stayed at Andrew's house, relaxed myself totally, played Harvest Moon: Sunshine Islands (I'm addicted to this game again after months - I'm getting pretty good at mining, too! My current goal is to learn how to cook wonderful stones and yeah, it's going to take awhiiiiiiiiiiiile. But I like challenges, lol!) and watched Leverage (that's right - I got Andrew addicted to Leverage! He bought me the DVDs of seasons 1 and 2 for my birthday and he really likes it. :D Now, if only his mom would stop calling it "the American Hustle"... it's not Hustle, ok? It's Leverage and it's freaking awesome! lol). It was a pretty good weekend overall. ♥

Andrew also spent the night in my room. He tried to sleep on the floor, since my bed is small for two people (but the room itself is pretty big), but because he had brought the wrong sleeping bag that wouldn't fit him, he didn't really sleep much (and the little sleep he got, well, it wasn't exactly amazing). I had to wake up early to go to the doctor, so I told him to stay in my room and get some proper sleep in my bed instead. He really wanted to go to the doctor with me, so I wouldn't be alone, but I knew he was very tired and needed to sleep some more. In the end, he admitted that he was grateful that I let him sleep, because he was exhausted, lol. I just think it would have been stupid and selfish to tell him to come with me, especially knowing he hadn't slept much. I'd rather he got more sleep and felt better later (which he did), than have him come with me wherever I go, even if I know it's just going to have a bad effect on him.

He was originally going to stay until Wednesday, but he went home tonight instead, so he can sleep better in his bed. Hopefully he'll get the train on Wednesday so he can come and see me, but even if he doesn't, I won't be too bothered about it, since I'm going back to his house this weekend.

Well... that's about it! It's a rather small entry, but I just wanted to give you guys a quick update. Until next time! :D

I am here again! I seriously need to go back to updating my LJ more. I will do that, I promise!

Anyway. I am here today for a very important reason. That is, I NEED TO FANGIRL ABOUT MY NEW FANDOM - SHERLOCK. ANYBODY WANT TO JOIN ME? ♥

Spoilers, capslock & hearts. Yes, this is, indeed, a fangirling session about Sherlock. )

I've also watched Sherlock Holmes with Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law and I loved it! ♥ And you know what I just noticed? That all these actors that I love are doing something related to Sherlock Holmes. RDJ has done a movie, Benedict Cumberbatch is doing the BBC series... I wonder if some other actor will join in? XD It's like they all want me to read the books and get into the SH fandom. WELL IT'S WORKING

Ahem. Well, I believe I've fangirled enough for now. XD Oh, and I still need to go see the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. By the way, I noticed recently that I'm waiting for a lot of movies to be released. I'm waiting for Iron Man 3, The Avengers, Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows Part II, The Dark Knight Rises, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and, last but not least, The Hobbit by Peter Jackson! ♥ Oh my gosh, I'm so happy that Peter Jackson will be directing this movie! He's such a talented director and by far my favourite! ♥ ♥ Also, did I mention that Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch are going to be in it, as well?! SO MANY AWESOME MOVIES WITH SO MANY AWESOME PEOPLE, I DON'T EVEN. JUST. BRAIN CANNOT COPE.

On another fandom note, LEVERAGE IS BACK. ♥ ♥ ♥ I missed this show so much. I missed the awesome actors, ad well as the fantastic interaction between the characters. And the Nate/Sophie, oh gosh, I LOVE THIS PAIRING TO PIECES. ♥ Also, both Sterling and Tara are coming back in this season and I'm so happy about it, I love all the characters and I wish all of them would always be on the show. The plot is also going to be very interesting, as apparently someone is out to get the team... I can't wait for the next episodes!! ♥

And this somehow brings me to the point that... I had two dreams about Leverage. And one of them was the best dream ever.

Cut for dreams. )

Oh, and by the way. I WANT A LEVERAGE/SHERLOCK CROSSOVER. I know it's never gonna happen, but I seriously want to see those two series collide. Imagine the reactions of the various characters! It would be awesome. Although I think Christian Kane and Benedict Cumberbatch in the same scene would be too much for the tv to handle. Heck, ALL the actors in the same scene would be too much awesome to handle! ... That's why I started writing a Leverage/Sherlock crossover fic. XD By the looks of it, it's gonna be a multi-chapter fic and right now the prologue is done and I'm starting to write chapter 1. Who knows when/if I'll be able to publish it? I hope I can do it soon, but first I'll need to write at least a few chapters. Wish me luck! :D

Well, that's it for this incoherent fandom post. XD I still need to comment the season finale of Gossip Girl, which, to my surprise, I actually enjoyed a lot. ♥

And I will reply to your comments, guys! I'm just... really slow at it. /headdesk

I don't know what to write. XD; Life is pretty boring at the moment and I've basically spent the last two days watching Leverage (I loved this season finale! ♥) and fangirling over Christian Kane. ♥ Also, today arrived a package from my uncles who are in Naples and they sent us some mozzarella, Struffoli & Pastiera! (Basically, a whole bunch of Christmas cakes/pastry - except for the mozzarella - typical of south Italy.) I'm eating some right now and it's all delicious~ ♥ :D

Anyway, since these days I don't have the energy to do anything (except watch tv shows/movies)... that's right, you get a meme! XD; I will reply to all your comments once my mind stops going blank whenever I try to reply to your comments, I promise!

Yo, guys! :D I feel quite cheerful today. I was suddenly hit by inspiration yesterday night and started writing one of the crossover fanfictions I had in mind and I kind of like the way it's turning out. :D Also, I watched Gossip Girl's latest episode today (4x10) and I also managed to catch up on a couple of Leverage episodes.

usual gossip girl/leverage fangirling, which includes spoilers and one of the funniest moments of season 3 of leverage XD )

Onto other matters, I would like to wish happy birthday to Andrea ([ profile] royalbk) (whose birthday was actually yesterday) and Emiko ([ profile] animefanemiko)! ♥ I hope you had/have a fantastic day~! :D

Also, I just wanted to remind you guys of the Time Capsule Meme, just in case you'd missed it, or you felt like writing something to me... or something. XD

Next time I'm going to start the Ten Days Meme that everyone seems to be doing recently... I think it's going to be interesting. :D
