Lorenzo & his humble friends

The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool

Skole

It just occurred to me that we are leaving our temporary homes (mine more temporarily than yours) on the same day. I realized I didn’t update you about Stockholm at all but it doesn’t matter because there is too much to tell anyway. I met so many crazy, wonderful, absurd and nice people – we should really have that beer in Prague.

Also, my friend sent me an e-mail in which she told me that ‘school’ stems from ‘skole’, a Greek word, meaning being free and having spare time, because only then you can be creative and your mind thinks of the greatest ideas. Looking back at my school career, I can say I have been running around like a madwoman: 5 years of studying, in which I earned 3 degrees, 2 certificates, studied at 4 universities, in 4 different countries, and set up 1 company. Plus all the other stuff that is not directly related to school, of course, and which is maybe more important, in the end. I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward for my thesis to be done, but hell, those 5 years were a lot of fun.

Anyway, you understand, I am getting melancholic, too. Also, what I actually wanted to write is that I will try to live in a digital isolation for the next month because my thesis is going to be the Mount Everest I need to climb fully unprepared. So if you don’t hear as much from me, that’s good, if you do, tell me to shut up and write my thesis.

Summer plans

When this post will be published I will hopefully be travelling to Berlin. I am going to be there for a few days and then I am flying back to Milan and going to be back in Trento for a couple of weeks and one wedding. On the 22nd of July I am flying to Bratislava, from where I will take a bus to the middle of nowhere-Slovakia to do volunteering work with a local NGO. That experience will take about ten days. Afterwards I will go on holidays with Stefania and we still have to figure out where. We only know we want to do something on the road. I will have to be in Florence at the end of August. See you around, my friends.

Overwhelmed

Mindo, Ana, Roberto, Giulia, Matic, Vaida, Xavier, Moe, that are those with whom I have spent the last 24 hours: I will carry your generosity with me.
