I have been trying for ages to upload posts to my blog, with no success. I saved one of them, written a few weeks ago (June 25th, to be precise), just as a short update on wat I’ve been doing:
“Weeks can go by with me doing nothing but sleep eat and work, and then – bang! I get down to catching up with long overdue chores in a few days. That’s me. So, last week’s events:
- I completed the article on gay life in Milan for a French gay magazine; as I thought, I stood up all night for the finishing touches, then went straight to work and pretended to get something done, in fact I was merely staring at the screen and typing away at nothing.
- I booked a ticket to Paris, I’ll be visiting friends and going to my friend A.’s 30th birthday bash next weekend. I am so thrilled to go back to Paris, I left it 2 years ago and I miss my friends enormously.
- I also booked my trip to the States. Now, that’s a 15-year dream that’s coming through. It all started with my friend S. announcing she’s getting married to K., then I came into a bit of money when I was made redundant, then at my new job I was told that the office will be closed all August… so I decided I am going to leave good ol’ Europe for the first time in my life. Very excited about that.
- And, to top it all off, I was finally able to walk down the street with pride holding my boyfriend’s hand – Milan had its first gay pride march, attendance was enormous, which proves that Milan has a huge gay community although the city is doing nothing to acknowledge that.
Now I badly need some rest, but work needs to be done, Geri Halliwell will be performing in the main square downtown tonight, plus I’m going to a birthday dinner tonight. Not bad for a Monday – I need a weekend… now!”
