What kind of music are you listening?

Heyo, there we go again with another writing with no head no tail (sorry, cannot fully erase my italian origin) but still enjoy and have a glimpse of what is going on in my head.

Come on, who in the world has never been at this point? I mean, who has never been asked what kind of music they like..
No idea about you but for me every single time is such a stressfull experience trying to explain to the other person that the music i was listening in that specific moment doesn’t label me.
Apart from me hating being labelled by someone, I love to think I have a quite wide musical taste .
What i mean with these is that i love music itself for all those feeling that gives us, all those memories that comes back in mind and last but not least all those damn goosebumps and so I jump pretty much from one genre to another.
Gotta be honest the genre i find myself listening to more than the others is metal and all his subgenres but it doesnt matter.
Enough with the introduction, the point is how am i gonna explain to you what i listen if im listening to Kendrick lamar and the moment we start talking again the music jumped to Bring me the horizon? (Using more known names as it is easier)
And the thing is maybe you are talking with someone and they are like “oh yes, cause i listen to everything, try me” and you are just face palming quite hard.
Believe me my dear, you have literally no fucking idea what “everything” is and, trying to be the humblest possble, i think i may have got just a glimpse of that “everything” that is music.
Even more when something “heavier” than what are you used to pops on and (sounds crazy i know but believe me it happened so many times) you are just like “oh god what is this satanic thing?”
The same example could be made for the other side but this one was the easier and more common so whatever.
With this being said im totally not saying im superior/know more/im better/you dont know music, im just saying that im a randm guy who loves music maybe a little too much and hate people being close minded about it.
Truly believe music has been one of the best invention/discovery (?) ever and its dumb not taking full advantage of it.
Personal note, ive always desired my days to last 30 hours in total to have those 6 hours more where i could just listen to music and nothing else.

So there you go another personal and random rant or whatever you wanna call it, if anyone is ever going to read it fully please tell me how you’d find it, much appreciate.
Random music lover 🙂

Midnight memories

So I have literally no idea where to start or why am I even trying this but whatever.

Basically I’m an Italian who always loved London and 8 months ago I moved here to find a job and spend some time.

Eventually I found one, I became a receptionist in one of the best hostel I’ve ever been, located in shoreditch which can give an idea of how I look.

Needless to say that this experience changed me, I like to define myself as a fake Italian as I was born in Italy but I become a person in Shoreditch.

For a guy that comes from a little city in the middle of pretty much nowhere coming to shoreditch at full speed and almost without preparation was something really scary and I truly believe is something that changes you forever, either in a good or bad way.

Unluckily it is not up to me to say in which way I changed but something I can surely say is that it opened my mind, seeing so many people from all over the world and everyone with his own personal story is something really precious to me and something I want to keep doing. It kind of kills any prejudice you could have.

Here, in this very hostel where am I writing and where I spent the last 8 months, without regretting a single day, I met some of the nicest person a young, scared and shy guy could possibly imagine.

What I mean is that the choice I took was unbelievably hard but was also something I always dreamt of. Sounds totally like a cliche but it’s true, most of the times the scariest and hardest move is the best one for you, probably it doesn’t seem so in the short period but believe me have faith. And I’m totally not speaking about having faith in something or being religious, I’m speaking about having faith in the most important person in your own life, which is you if someone didn’t realize. Your life is a movie and you are the main character, now move and make the best out of it, make it a film that’s worth watching, full of experience and different stories.

It ended up being quite longer than what I thought, the first article of, hopefully, a long series. It also had “no head no tail” we say in Italy but I’ve always been an awfully bad writer and everyone has to start somewhere.
