Of Our Elaborate Plans, The End.

I realised today that a love story is not officially over until it’s over. And when do you know for sure that it is over? When you are included in a mass email.

This morning I woke up, made my breakfast, and sat in front of my computer to write. Being in a romantic mood, I thought perhaps I’d write about freedom, beauty, truth and love, but once again the cynical world out there made a noticeable appearance through my e-mails. Seeing the name of a strong past love as the sender in one of them, I all at once felt warm, and opened it with a loving smile, only for that smile to suddenly freeze on my face when I started reading it. Looking more like Joker than Angeliki, I quickly realised that it was a mass e-mail, sent to everyone the guy knew, which said the following: ‘Good morning all, I hope you’re having a good day, and an even nicer winter so far! The spring is now almost here and the summer will soon follow’. ‘Thanks for the insight’, I whispered to myself, seeing the million different reasons for which that man was an ex. ‘I hope to see you all guys soon and we get the chance to catch up. Have a great day’. Having completely destroyed any possibility of me having a good day, I left the flat and went to meet a friend in order to complain.

Grab that cash with both hands

Today, my best friend gave me the answer to the question why you continue to put up with all these losers: Money. Please tell me it’s not true…

This morning I was writing at my usual cafe, when a really unattractive, sleazy man walked in, sat at the table next to me, and ordered his coffee. He looked at me and winked, smiled and then offered to buy me a drink. I shook my head quickly, trying not to be associated with that guy, and to show everyone I didn’t know him, when a very beautiful woman walked in and approached him. As I had stopped writing and was now staring at this classy, amazingly beautiful woman, trying to figure out how and why she was connected to that man, suddenly she ran her fingers through his hair and kissed him. All of a sudden I felt like jumping up to stop her, but I tried hard to control myself. I just sat there, trying to find something even remotely attractive about his face in order to explain the situation. After having this gorgeous girl kissing him for a while, I decided that he had probably been there at a difficult time for her. Perhaps when her father was dying? Something like that…

Home Alone

Florence is officially home.

Today I made a list of what makes a place home, without even realising it. It all hit me at the end of the day. In the morning I had to go to the doctor’s because I wasn’t feeling well. Weak, and dizzy, I felt like something was wrong. When I got there, before he even got the chance to ask me what was wrong with me, I fainted on his sofa. When he put alcohol in my nose in order to wake me up, I opened my eyes and tried to realise what was happening, and where I was. And then he asked me if I was ok… In Italian.

Boring romance

Ok here’s the thing: I’ve had enough of boring loves stories. Boring people getting together in boring ways, staying together for the sake of having boring kids and tell them the boring story of how they met in order for them to fall asleep in no timeā€¦ Can’t do it anymore.

I actually suggest that if you and your boyfriend/girlfriend got together in a really plain and boring way, either you break up now, or make up an imaginary story that will make everyone around you see the point in you two being together. And from now on, use that new story of yours when someone asks you how you guys met.
