First thing first, allow me to provide you with an insight on my life a little bit so you have a better idea on the crazy girl's blog you decided to read. For the past year, I have been living in Milano, Italia. Mamma mia, che cazzo dici!!!! I first came to Italy in 2014 for an exchange and fell in love with the culture of this country. I was living up with the young 20-something life. No responsiblities, drinking Prosseco, eating pizza and mowing down on some gelato. I went back to Canada for a bit then got the hell out of the land of maple syrup, OHHHHHHH CANADAAAAAAAAA.
From there, I thought hmmmmmm how can I go back to Italia; wanting to travel, needing a job, and with a love for children? I SHALL BECOME THE BEST AU PAIR ITALY HAS EVER SEEN! I will write a post on a later date, all about being an au pair; the ups, the downs and everything inbetween. Maybe one or two posts, because jesus that was an experience. I never thought I would be the person to take away a child's Ipad!! At this point of my life while being the greatest nanny to ever live, (imagine some Mary poppin kinda shit), I lived in a tiny town called Rovereto, near Verona in the great mountians of Italy. I lived with the most amazing Italian family. They opened their house and their hearts to me, it was an experience I will always cherish.
Last August, it came the time for me to stop being Mrs. Doubtfire, and traded in my purse full of wetwipes and bandaids for some spritz and public transit. I made the move back to my favourite city, Milanooooooooo. I began working in a PR firm, and started livin' the life of the rich and famous (more like broke and struggling). Fast forward a few Italian men, some hilarious stories, and some crazy nights out with my best friend C, or as facebook calls us step sisters, here I stand before you today!
Now I have a boyfriend and we live together in an amazing apartment in the hipster area of town. I hung up my VERY single lady heels, and traded them love and happiness. My life has completely changed over the last year, but I wouldn't changed a moment. I have some of the most amazing friends I have ever had here in Milan, as we called ourselves Da Crew, we are fucking losers. But we are like the fucking United Nations when we all come together, K & A are from the States, J is from New Zealand, C & S are Italians, and of course you need the Canadian of the club! We have become like the cast of "How I Met Your Mother," myself of course being Robin, but no one will admit to being the Barney *cough cough you kow who you are cough cough*. But life is great but it is all about to change....
I will keep you posted with what will happen next in the great adventure I call my life.
