WOW! Time's fastening and I can't believe we already are on 13th and I still think of New Year's Eve as yesterday!
I've been a busy bee in the last few days. I had lots to do (and still have plenty of things to do!) at the Youth Centres I work at and I also had to fullfill my parents' wish and go with mom to the mall and buy a new jacket.
It was a nightmarish week the past one because of staff meeting lasting till 2am (when I had to be up by 7 on the following morning and be at the Sports Centre by 9), and on Friday I had a night out with Ilaria (that was due to be over early, but actually we didn't make it to be home till 1.30am) and last but not least on Saturday night I went to a gig (an Italian singer - N. Fabi - that I think none of the people reading my journal really ever heard of) with Ricky, Ilaria and other mates and we weren't home before 3am... And I actually didn't like the songs at all: what with them all being about him being dumped by his girlfriend and general pessimism spreading all over! And, just to make myself all the more miserable, I had to be up by 8 on Sunday morning because of the shopping spree my mom literally forced me to!
Ok, truth has to be said and I really was in need of new clothes, but I don't like to go shopping (unless it is books I am shopping for, in what case it is hard to stop me!) and it really was a pain in the ass (sorry for bad words) to wake up early and go shopping. People seem to get crazy during sales season and we weren't the only one to be up at the crack of dawn (yes, 8am can be called that name on a Sunday) for shopping! I was lucky because Think Pink (my favourite shop at the mall) had a brown bomber jacket that fit me perfectly and it was half the original price so I went for it. At that point mom even tried to talk me into buying another one in addition to the one we'd just purchased, maybe something less sporty, something on the smart side, but I refused because a) I already have something smarter, b) I was tired and sick of shopping, c) I had spotted a bookshop where they sold books on sales and they were 15% off. She gave it up the smart jacket but was still pleased with me purchasing a pair of  black trousers, a greenish pullover and a bag at Benetton's. Finally I had to visit the bookshop where I got "My sister, my love" by Joyce Carol Oates.
Job is ok, still tiring, but it is obvious when you work with kids and teens: they have much more energies than you and they cry, run, play all together and it's your luck you don't get a headache at the end of the day!
Because of me being constantly busy I had to drop a handful of pals, the newest, those I still wasn't close with. I was so sorry doing that, but I really couldn't help it because I don't like to write back once every many months and it was driving me crazy to have many letters to be replied and no time to do that at all! The people I had to give up to seemed to be understanding and I can't but being grateful to them who didn't blame me as I was already feeling bad for dropping them like that.
Bookwise, I am reading "The New Yorkers" that I had many expectations about, probably too many since it's been a disappointment so far. I actually was about to give it up (I am past its half) but I want to read it to its end and see if it gets any better, even if I have lost any hopes it will. I already found someone on Bookmooch who wants it and I am sending it out as soon as I am finished with the reading.
Next week, on 20th, I am going to see "Grease" at the Theatre: I am looking forward to it! It is the very first musical I see live and I am thrilled about it!
Last update about my life is not too good of a news (for me at least): I am going to be away from 31st Jan. to 6th Feb. because of a course we must attend with the Sports Centre (called CSI). There'll be people doing the civil service year coming from all over Italy and we'll be staying there at this hotel (or whatever it is that we're staying at) for one week and attend lectures everyday. Funny, not! Especially because it bothers me big time to be away for one whole week. I hope I can at least bring along my pc, will ask if they have wireless connection there. I will bring a book and a letter to write with me, that's for sure. After all, I think I won't be socializing much. After all I am (found this funny definition reading The New Yorkers, only nice thing of it so far) an Asocial worker! On top of that Ricky isn't thrilled with me having to go, because we already see too little of eachother and one whole week apart isn't something we needed! But there's nothing I can do against it.

Wow, you HAVE been so busy. And all of that on so little sleep. I know how exhausting that is and how drained you must have felt. :( I really hope you could catch up on sleep a little by now?!

I have the same problem with my pals. I think I will have to quit writing to some of them because I'd rather have less pals so I can spend more time writing their letters. I don't like rushed letters where you have to hurry so no one has to wait. I have six pals right now and it feels like it's getting too much, plus I'm not really close to two of them so it won't really be too bad for either of us I suppose.

I'll cross my fingers for you that the week away won't be too hard on you! :) XOXO

I hope I will catch up on my sleep because I feel so tired right now and today the kids gave me a hard time and all I want right now is to sleep!

I agree with you, writing to a pal means really caring for them and I think we ought to give them all of our spare time and we can't show up in their lives twice a year only... As sorry as I feel for having dropped them I ought to say that's the wisest choice.

Wish you tonz of luck for the voluntary job at the youth Centre! You'll have a chance to learn a lot and to give yourself for other people, that's what I like the most about my job... Ok, it can be bothering at times, take today for example..I feel drained after an afternoon with 15 shouting kids...All I want to do now is to be in silence and fall asleep asap! Awful!
