Venezuela's president Hugo Chevez died today,on 5th March 2013.

3 days with no school. So until Monday........ Vacations!!! :D

There're someone who said he died days ago, but we'll never know.

I'm really surprised that there're Italians who support Chavez!!!!! They don't know how is live there with this President...and I don't care about what they say, but I'm pretty worried for Italy.... I just hope that this type of people NEVER EVER will govern Italy. 

I just want to say a few words: always respect for any person who dies because of every kind of thing......

But this is the opportunity for Venezuela to change,to rise up again after a lot of years.... and of course I hope nothing bad happens because it could take us home....

I repeat, I respect every opinion and everyone who dies,but how Chavez's supporters show their sadness makes me laugh... They tell something like "Chavez is still alive among us..his spirit is with us"... Come on! Come down from the clouds!! He died,like everyone does early or late...just accept it!!!!! They are really funny on TV with their tears and their touching speeches... they remember me Neapolitan dramas ahahahahahah

There're 30 days for new elections,ana I hope these won't be corrupted...!

Just to post some tweets:

- "Se murió Chávez, renuncia el papa, un meteorito cae en Rusia, un tsunami en Japón... ¡JUMANJI!" (By a Venezuelan, "Chavez died,the Pope quits,a meteorite fell in Russia,a tsunami in Japan...JUMANJI!").

- "Mi solidaridad a toda la familia y seguidores del Presidente Hugo Chávez,abogamos por la unidad de los venezolanos en este momento" (Capriles,leader of the opposition: "My support to all the family and followers of President Chavez,we advocate for the Venezuelan unity in this moment").

- "No me alegro porque el presidente se murió es un ser humanó pero creo que era lo que Venezuela necesitaba para un nuevo comienzo." (I'm not happy because the president died because he is a human,but I think that was what Venezuela needed for a new beginning). - My classmate.

- "non è un caso se Hugo Chavez è morto oggi,esattamente 60 anni dopo Stalin." (It's not casual that Chavez died today, exactly 60 years after Stalin). - A (clever) person from Italy.

- "manovre truppe in Venezuela ...domani aumenta la benzina ...scommettiamo? Posso fare il ministro dell'economia." (By an Italian, "Venezuelan operations... tomorrow the gasoline increases...we bet? I could be the Economy Minister").

So......... Bye Chavez....

Change the point of view. 6 months!

"Change the point of view" is not casual. February has been an important month: the change is officially started! New me, new experience's part, new blog's style! :) Do you like it?! I've decided to use clear colors this time instead of dark ones,like before. And also this change depends on this magic month: February.

Before leaving and also during the first months, everything was dark: I didn't know what to expect, I had a lot of fears, I was really really pessimist, I wasn't indipendent. Dark for me represents all these things; insecurity, fear, weakness. 

But then the real time to change arrives. And you realize it only after it has already begun. To me this time has been February,the 6th month in Venezuela. Probably there are exchange students who start this period before, probably it was slow to me,but probably it has been the right thing,arrived at the right moment.

I'm more positive right now, I have clearer ideas about my future, I'm more confident and , FOR REAL, I  feel home. I FEEL HOME, I FEEL HOME, I FEEL HOME. I don't think on how many months have passed or how many months to go, I just live here with my family, my friends,my life. This is not only my Venezuelan life, I feel this is my life,the real one. 

I don't use Skype for more than a month, I can't answer my friends "I miss you too" because that's not true and so I answer "Oh come on! A few months and I'm back!". I still repeat that it's only an experience, but it's doesn't mean that Venezuela is only a chapter of my life. Venezuela is forever, exactly like Italy. My life here with my family and friends is forever,like the Italian one. 

And in February, speaking about my host dad, I called him for the first time "DAD" and I said it like it was normal to me, and then I realized what happened!! OMG!! And from that day, I knew the change has started. Seriously. 

In every experience, there's comes a time where you feel the change. Early or late, this time comes unexpectedly. And in this moment the experience starts for real because you want only to live your life in your host country, because you feel that's your own real life. And at the end, you think "I'm gonna miss it..." even people like me, who is convinced it's only an experience to grow up and get better, thinks that and probably this kind of people is the one who,and the end, cries and goes back with a smile because of the change and know that's not a "Goodbye", but only a "See you later".

A lot of people asks me "Why don't you stay here forever?"... and the answer is "No... I love here with a lot of people that's giving a lot to me, but it started as an experience and that's it. There comes an end,but it won't be a real end because this year is changing me and this change is forever".

Month's vote: 9.

Stay strong and your time will come!
See y'all!
