A new chapter

980x

Hey y’all you peeps! I’m here drinking coffee, thinking about my beloved blog and what to write…. For today I’m going to write something very personal, something that recently happened to me. Then we will carry on with the usual, well I should say unusual, topics…

So, as you might know already, I always had a “particular” taste and always been interested in not-very-ordinary topics and subjects. Six Feet Under had a great impact on me when I was 11. Since then I’ve always seen myself working within the funeral trade… what a dream huh?! Unfortunately in Italy is basically impossbile to get into this business as the majority of the funeral homes are family runned, so that’s why I moved to London more than one year ago, thinking that here would have been easier… silly me. Since I moved here, I always sent CVs upon CVs, but no one noticed me, until now.

Yes, with huge pride, I can inform you that in a couple of days I will start as a trainee embalmer…. and words can’t describe how happy I am. When you finally reach something that you dreamed for so long nothing else really matters.

The thing is that the majority of the people doesn’t really understand how rewarding this job is. Helping families during the most difficult time of their lives is just an honour.

I will try to keep the blog updated anyway and trying to write another tarot reading within the end of the week.

Bye for now!

It’s 2018…(Oh Sh!t)

giphy

Hey y’all my fellow weirdos! First thing first HAPPY NEW YEAR! I can’t believe it’s 2018 already! 2017 just flew and I can’t believe that I wrote my last post in june! EMBARASSING! A lot of things happened, some of them good, some of them… well, not that nice, but at least I’m here.

You will soon (and by soon I mean TOMORROW!) be reading new posts and I will also try, I promise to do my best, to offer you new contents.

In the meantime I want to thank who sent me messages and comments asking me where the hell I was. Thank you so so much!

Also, I created a Ko-fi page. If you enjoy reading my posts then here you can offer me a coffee. (Don’t worry, it’s not a subscription kind of thing, where you have to pay every month…it’s just a simple coffee and for me, being italian, means a lot!). Click HERE to take a look.

Bye for now!

New city, new life


Hey y’all fellow weirdos! 

I’ve finally moved to London and at the moment the situation is complete madness! I’m on an emotional roller coaster as a Super Bowl speaker would say! 

Getting a room here is even crazier but apparently I found one that is in a very lovely area and there’s also an old victorian cemetery very close to the house. Talking about cemeteries, the first place I’ve been to since my moving, has been my beloved Golders Green Crematorium which is like home for me, but more importantly I’ve seen my dearest friend Eric, who also happens to work at the Crematorium. I didn’t tell him anything about my moving so I tried to organize a little surprise. See, even a weirdo like me can do this kind of nice things, especially if they’re directed to an amazing friend ❤️ 

This is mainly a little post to update you all, just a quick chitchat between fellow weirdos and to let you know that the blog is still open and that there will be new interesting posts as soon as I’m all settled.

Serial killers, witches and more!

Hey peeps! It’s been ages since my last post and I’m terribly sorry for that, but lately my life has become insane, in a positive way! October and November are going to be two wicked months, so I won’t be posting a lot. Great thing is that on November you’ll be able to see a huge news here on The Weirdo. Seriously, I can’t wait for it!

In the meantime I picked some interesting documentaries that I found on YouTube (who would have thought?!) for your eyes pleasure!

Happy Birthday The Weirdo!

(Yesterday) The Weirdo turned one! This first year has been an amazing, incredible, interesting and WEIRD journey!

Through this blog I’ve got the opportunity to get to know other amazing people and found a lot of interesting blogs that inspire me on a daily basis. I’m also very thankful for all the readers, honestly when I see all the flags in the Statistics section it feels great and it makes me realize that I’m  not alone as a lot of people are interested in weird, creepy topics as well. *vitual hugs to you all*

I know I haven’t been posting a lot but life is getting a bit hectic lately, but I promise that I’ll be back SOON with lots of, well, weird posts! THANK YOU ALL!

Time.

Hello guys! How are you all? I’m always very “nervous” when I have to write a personal post and never know how to start.
I have a couple of posts planned but I’ll be off for a few days. If you follow this blog you know that most of the posts are about not-very-happy topics, and though I really love each thing that I wrote here, right now I’m not feeling comfortable to post/write the usual stuff. I’m pretty sure you all know what happened in Paris, and even if I’m not from there I’m very shocked by this dreadful situation. A couple of friends of mine were very close to the area where everything took place, thankfully they’re fine.
This blog receives visits from all over the world so I’m sure you can understand this decision.
Horrible things happen everyday and we must carry on with our lives…though sometimes it can be quite difficult.

I’ll be back soon. Lots of love!
