Here I am. But who am I? You gotta read this if you want to know who am I.
-Who are you?
-I'm a dreamer.
-Who are you?
-I'm a dreamer, I tell you. Nothing else.
I live in Matera, south Italy. Cool being italian, uh? Not at all, but it's the perfect place for me. Why? I still don't know. My interests...uhm. I love reading (except for school books). I grew up with the Harry Potter saga, and now I eat fantasy books : they're food for my brain. This is where it all starts. Until I turned ten I secretly wouldn't admit Harry Potter was just a book, and I still like imagining how would it be like if it, or the Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of the Emerged World etc etc weren't just books. Why? I.Am.A.Dreamer. My love for fantasy books is a way to compensate how much I wished it was real. I like playing computer and surfing the net. This is another strange thing, for other girls I know. They mostly use computer to chat, chat, chat. I mostly use it to play MMORPGs (like Rappelz), and to join forums, follow blogs, especially Sasuke forums and blogs (see later). I listen to all kinds of music, from classic to metal (I'm not joking). I don't usually watch much TV but there are many series I follow, House, Lie to Me, Flash Forward, Lost, Mythbusters. I also love sport. I fence since three years ago, I do athletics (long run, gonna start long jump this year). I'm actually training for Sasuke (don't know what is it? www.sasukepedia.wikia.org), a Japanese obstacle course. Well, I'll probably never have the money to pay the travel to Japan and get a shot, so why am I training? I.Am.A.Dreamer. Keep thinking this while you read here, or most of the things I'll write won't make any sense. Even if I'll never get there, I enjoy training. Also, what if tomorrow my uncle wins the lottery, or the next week I find a wallet full of money (yes, I'd spend it for this)? I want to be ready; and you never know when being in shape will help you. My devotion to Sasuke is a sort of "thank you", too. If it wasn't for this, I wouldn't have met a lot of people, I wouldn't have had experiences like watching the live broadcast of the 23th tournament. Mostly, I wouldn't have met theese guys > sasukemaniac.proboards.com <, who I like a lot and enjoy chatting with, I wouldn't have read theese blogs -www.ramblingrican.blogspot.com ; www.lostinube.blogspot.com - and met who writes them.
I still don't know what I want to do of my future. I'm in second year of high school, and I'd like to do a lot of things. I enjoy writing, acting, playing music (I play saxophone and sometimes keyboard), but also I'd LOVE a career of professional stuntwoman -I forgot to tell you I do some parkour and freerunning too when I have time-.
Is it impossible to do that where I live?
When I watch a good film, or TV series episode, I dream to meet the actors, one day, and make jokes with them about their character. Impossible, and stupid maybe, but
When I read a good fantasy book, I wish it was real. Childish, but
Dreaming about this led me to having a talent in writing stories.
When I watch Sasuke, I dream to someday get on the course, and do well, be the first girl since the second tournament to clear first stage and more. Nearly impossible, but
I'm training, having fun, learning parkour and freerunning. Dreaming about this led me to meet lots of new people. When I read Sasuke blogs, I dream to one day meet my idols, the All-Stars. Nearly childish, and nearly impossible? No. I kept dreaming about this in the past two years and I still do, and look at what I had. Thanks to the help of a friend I'll never stop to thank, I sent a message to my idol, Makoto Nagano, and he replied me, and thanked me. It was a little thing for him, but it was priceless to me to find a reply from him, with even a picture in it.
I'm a freak. I'm really a strange girl, but despite of what a lot of people tell me (grow up! wake up!you're wasting your time!), I won't stop dreaming. Never.
Because I Am A Dreamer...
