My name is Francesca and today is the day when I finally decided to write my intro post (applause).
I've been thinking about it for a loooong time and I finally found the courage to do it.
I must say...introducing myself is the main problem. It's a pretty challenging deal for me, that actually made me procrastinate about this intro post here in Steemit for ages.
When in real life people ask me the terrifying question: what do you do in life?
I always reply with some not serious/wanna be funny answers like: I live :D
I smile. I laugh. And I try to move on to an easier conversation in every possible way.
The truth is that I'm a-almost-30 years old woman, who still live life without any stability (nothing special, right? Do you maybe relate?) I finish my money, I panic and i look for another boring job, which I know I will quit, while I look for cheap flights.
It is a vicious circle. I know.
Talking about the things I actually enjoy, the problem with them is that they are way too many.
I've always been a psychoDreamer. What is a psychoDreamer?! Oh well, a psychoDreamer is a person who dreams, and dreams big, a very ambitious type of human that most of all TOO EASLY get over excited about any idea, hobby, project and whatever comes in mind and never concludes a thing; jumping from one passion to another like a crazy monkey.
And here we go with a list of things I'm pretty passionate about:
Singing – probably was my first love as a child, together with Drawing.
I haven’t been much of a sporty child, I was more the artsy type, shy, sensitive and full of fantasy.
Writing – I loved writing even before learning how to do it (it is no joke). I remember asking my mom to write something so that I could copy it. When I actually learned, I started writing tons of stories and poems. You know, fantasy goes well with writing.
About Art – I studied art. I painted very much, learned to make portraits, explored different artistic fields and for a long time I was sure that art would become my job.
Then I understood I wanted to do something good and help people.
That’s when I participated in a volunteering project – with the European Voluntary Service. I became a volunteer for a Youth Studio moving from Italy to Latvia and I discovered the amazing world of Non-Formal Education.
I started Travelling and living abroad, participating to training courses about youth work and looking for a new path to follow.
In the meanwhile, I found a new passion because, you know, they are never enough and I started teaching Italian Language to foreigners.
Reading – I really love books!
Nature – this is more like something we need for living. To spend as much time as possible in nature makes me happy and healthy. To respect nature makes me happy and healthy. I try to do my best. Also, I come from an island, Sardinia, which is a spectacular and wild natural gift; and lived in Latvia for three years, the land of white snow, green forests and colourful sunsets.
Food – OMG I almost forgot food! I love eating and cooking, and to treat myself with tasty and healthy food. I mean...I’m Italian, what did you expect? We are obsessed with food.
And last but not least, I recently decided that I want to become a psychologist. I want to have a job that makes me feel useful to society, I want to have a positive impact on people, especially on those ones who need help the most. So I want to study Psychology. This year I tried to apply but unfortunately I didn’t get accepted, so I will try next year again.
And what about Steemit? Well, I have no clear idea! Ahah
I was thinking to start little by little. Sharing a bit of this and a bit of that. I would like to share with you my Bullet Journal, which I started this year for the first time and it’s becoming a great companion for my plans, psychoDreams, self-reflection and creativity. I would like to create a little space were we can put together all the things we like!
Let me know in the comments if there is something you want me to write more about. If you are interested in something I mentioned. If we have some passion in common. And if you have some suggestions to give me about the Steemit world:)
