random stuff… why english?

It’s pretty obvious that I enjoy talking about things… randomly. I though of writing things in italian, but I don’t know at the end, words flow better in english at least in my mind.

I speak both because I learned both, english from my mother ( since forever ) and Italian from my father, for 23 years I spent 3 months ( summer vacations ) abroad speaking only english, and well I live in Italy, so school, college was all italian. I am so grateful for that because it has been such a massive fortune!

When I was little like 3/4 years old I remember babbling pieces of songs, most of it was from musicals, Sound of music, The wizard of Oz, West side story, Meet me in Saint Louis and the charming Mary Poppins. I used to sing a long with my cousins during the movies or listen to tapes (yes ancient history … I know!!)… and I can say i learned words, sentences… english while I was having fun!

Also with my dad although he did not speak much of english we spent so much time listening to Sinatra, Ezra fitzgerald, and well a huge collection of Beatles songs… and learn all about it… I have no sister or brothers but about 10 cousins, uncles and aunties so the majority of my family are english speakers… so I had to try to communicate with them… one way or another…

Maybe it’s because of it, that I write in english… cause it’s fun and I enjoy it more, I feel it more familiar…
