I am the type of person who...
Tagged by @enchantedunicornhideout! Thank you so much! *___*
Rules: Write 1+ sentences/paragraphs of the type of person you are. It can be whatever you like. Tag your friends, so that they can play along to!
I am the type of person who… will instantly wake up to answer the phone at 6 am and keep up an entire conversation without sounding sleepy or tired in any way. Then will go back to sleep and completely forget about having said phone conversation at all.
I am the type of person who… was genuinely happy to find out she needed to wear glasses. Always loved glasses.
I am the type of person who… keeps buying new books despite knowing there’s 50+ more books at home waiting to be read.
I am the type of person who… has a really hard time throwing away even the crappiest scrap of paper because “it could come in handy for an art project one day!”
I am the type of person who… will get into verbal fights with any random stranger (irl or online) who dares criticize her beloved city of Naples and its inhabitants.
(Shitting on Naples is apparently some sort of national sport in Italy: insults can go from “all neapolitans are uncultured thieves” to “I hope mount Vesuvius wipes you and your shitty city off the face of earth, you cholera infected dogs!”, which, as you can guess, is not fun at all .___.’)
Speaking of that…
Cappella Sansevero (1593-1766), Naples, home to many amazing sculptures, including but not limited to Giuseppe Sanmartino’s masterpiece “The Veiled Christ”. Several legends circulate around the sculptures of this chapel and the Prince who commissioned them, Raimondo di Sangro. A scientist and an alchemist, he was said to be capable of replicating the miracle of the liquefaction of blood of Saint Januarius, as well as being the author of the so-called “anatomical machines”, two human skeletons whose vessel system was “turned into stone” thanks to an alchemic process (warning: body horror). The vessels eventually turned out to be made of wire, wax and silk, but the accuracy of details is still pretty amazing, especially given the lack of knowledge about this kind of things at the time.
I am the type of person who… will *not* shut up about the beauties of Naples and will always focus a good amount of her History of Art lessons on artists who lived or worked here, as opposed to traditional lessons only focusing on Florence and Rome :D
I am the type of person who… has more than 13 GB of music on her iPod (45,5 GB on pc), but will listen to the same 20-30 songs over and over again. And complain about having nothing else to listen to.
I am the type of person who…
…At 13, thought all heavy metal music was “satanic” and she would never listen to it. Turned into a full blown metalhead at 16.
…At 17, still claimed she would never listen to Ronnie James Dio because his name was “blasphemous” (“Dio” in Italian means “God”). One year later, she was one of the biggest Dio fangirls ever. Two years later, she went to see him & Black Sabbath live in concert (…AND the concert was canceled -___- Tony Iommi broke his shoulder or something, so we could only see Ronnie on stage for a few minutes. He sang the chorus part from Heaven & Hell for us, tried to comfort us for a bit, then left the stage. It was the first and last time I could see him, as he passed away about six months later ;___;)
…At 24, said she’d rather live under a bridge than become a teacher.
Became a teacher two years later.
I am the type of person who… should clearly stop claiming she will “never” do something XD
I tag… EVERYONE! :D No, seriously, if you see this and want to do it, consider yourself tagged U___U
