    I'm Jealous Of People Living In Italy

    I Come From Italy

    I'm italian. That means i was born here and i grown up here. I've been facing a lot of stereotypes especially traveling for work. Some of them are just offensive. Instead of different you're labelled as inferior, and this happens in northern europe a lot. English people call you...

    When I'm abroad I'm always respected

    and appreciated. When I'm introduced to a new person, they often say "oh Wow!" when I say that I'm from Italy. But the truth is in this video that you can see here.

    Yeah, my dad's side of the family has a

    tendency to go ballistic with rage. The things they will do are hilarious though, especially when they're drunk. My mom's side is only half Italian so they aren't quite as crazy, but they definitely make the best Italian food ever. <3 me some homemade pasta

    I Got Italian Citizenship Through My Great-Grandfather.

    In 1998, I was a student in London, and made a lot of friends there. After my student visa was up, I was really sad to return to the US, although I had a girlfriend in Chicago.  When I returned, she told me she'd started seeing someone else-- so I was even sadder that I had...
