Blogging English 2

hello everyone!

Hello everyone!! I'm Annalisa, I'm 25 years old and I live in Bassano del Grappa with my parents and my brother Marco, who is 13 years old. I got the degree in " Mediazione Linguistica e culturale" at the University of Padua and this is my second year of Specialistica in foreign languages. I'm studying German anf English and I'm quite satisfied with my choice, although sometimes I find German a little difficult to understand.
I think i'm a sociable and outgoing person, I like seeing my friends but I like doing thinghs on my own too, especially shopping- My boyfriend often says I'm a real shopaholic but he is too exaggerated!-. In my free time I absolutely love reading (at the moment I'm busy with The Perfume by Patrick Suskind) , listening to music (every kind apart from heavy metal and punk) and watching movies. In particular I can say I have a real adoration for everything related to the field of cinema. I think my passion began when my parents bought the tape-recorder-almost 18 years ago. Up to now I've collected almost 1ooo movies: the only genre I don't like is old western. So far my favourite movies are: Dead poets society, Before sunrise and the modern adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.
I also love animals, especially cats and dogs of small size..unfortunately I live in a flat and my mother doesn't want pets.
What else?..I have to admit that sports are not among my favourite hobbies: I've always been too lazy to follow them seriously.
As regards the choice of the photo, I chose this picture first of all and most obviously because I love sunsets, landscapes, the sea and nature in general. Moreover this photo says something about my personality. First of all I'm a very romantic, sensitive, instinctive and sometimes too ingenuous person. Furthermore I think the many nuances of a sunset can reflect different aspects of my temper (sometimes I'm sweet, happy; others obstinate and naughty). Finally I love the atmosphere offered by a sunset: it is not only romantic but it brings also some kind of "positive melancholy", it is difficult to describe but I think you could understand..anyway something that makes me feel relaxed and peaceful.
As regards technology and computers I have to admit we don't have a good relationship. I try to avoid using it as far as possible..anyway I like surfing the web and these are the three sites I hit the most: , and
Google is my favourite search engine; here I can find whatever I need,.. rock on the net is the best to get all the news about the forthcoming cds...and on the site of "Die Zeit" I can be updated about the events all over the world and at the same time I try to improve my knowledge of German....
That's all for the moment....

Hi Annalisa! I'd like to comment on your profile simply because I was struck by the fact that you mentioned the movie "Dead poets society". Does this movie correspond to "L'attimo fuggente", isn't it? What struck me is the fact that few people - or at least the people I know - know this movie and it's a pity because I think it's one of the best movies I have ever watched. Robin Williams is my favourite actor and in this movie he acts brilliantly. I love the part he plays: a teacher who departs from the traditional patterns of teaching in order to turn culture into life. He fights hard up to the end for what he loves: his job and his students. He is a great man! I also like the part played by that student, whose name I can't remember now, who commits suicide at the end of the movie because his father doesn't want him to be an actor. Also this guy fights for what he loves, in spite of his familiy traditions, and he dies for his passion. Do you agree with me? M. Chiara

Dear Annalisa,
Do you know Alana Morisette's song "Everything"? Your description of yourself (different aspects of your temper) reminds me of that song. If you've never heard it, go online and look for it. I think you'd like it.

Hi Annalisa!
what a pleasure to see you commented my blog...
I agree when you say that the second season of OC was not so interesting and the third is even worst...what a pity!
Do you really identify yourself with Rachel of Friends? I do it with Monica but sometimes with Phoebe too because she's a bit crazy...
I like Desperate Housewives too and if I had SKY TV I would have already seen the second season...I'm impatient for seeing it.
See you soon

Hi annalisa!! I really like the description of your photo of the sunset! The sunset is amazing and I agree with you when you wrote that it communicates some kind of “positive melancholy”. I love landscapes and nature. The picture that you have choosen reminds me of my experience im Malta. I went running quite every evening in a small path by the sea, and many times it happened to me to stop running and just stay to admire that beautiful ‘picture’ of the sun going down behind the sea, it was really amazing!.I also like the sunset between the mountains but it communicates me a different kind of emotion, I don’t know exatly how to call it, but it is some kind of negative melancholy. Do you agree with me??
Take care.............bye bye!!

Glad you like the sunsets, as the second one is mine. Was trying to figure out who could've linked back to my pic.

Hope you enjoy!
