Wow, it’s been more than a month since my last post. In my defense, I can say that much has happened and I was pretty busy, apart from a week of totally needed and deserved holiday in Italy.
Part of the last month has been spent preparing (and worrying about) the job application for multimedia producer at SciDev.Net. It was a quite long process, but I am happy to say that I got the job and I will start tomorrow.
Here’s the showreel I produced for the application.
So from tomorrow on my life’s gonna change and as I was told by my friends I am now a “proper Londoner”.
On top of it I also opened a blog in Italian, Penne in Panne, to support Italian journalists who want to move to the UK to study or work. I hope the project will bring together an active community in the next months. The crisis-chocked Italian industry is leaving too many young people unemployed and hopeless, thus moving to another country is for many the last chance to have a decent career. And I think that looking for better learning opportunities is also a good investment for the future. Should we see an Italian renaissance in a decade or so, there will be need of well trained brains that at the moment don’t seem to be welcome in Italy.
Other more cheerful resolutions for the coming year include learning French and improving at coding. Maybe I will build a robot at a point. Who knows, life’s full of surprises around here.
