Some buildings on the campus of the Università di Sapienza in Rome, Italy. They were built during the fascist era in Italy in the 30s.

I think they fit in quite well with the political ideology of the time because the architecture looks stark and functional at first glance, but is actually suffering from a seriously inflated ego…

I’m experiencing a little pre-Monday anxiety, so I really needed a window. These pictures remind me of me past and future vacation in beloved Rome.

Right at this moment, I’m enjoying the last beautiful minutes of a very relaxing Sunday, filled with nothing but sleeping late after an evening of wine and friends in the town square, then reading for an hour, getting a surprise visit from boyfriend, taking a walk through the breezy park at twilight, some TV and finally some dishes and loading the washing machine. Oh, and lots of eating in between. This day was pretty perfect.

I have to work tomorrow, and I’m not looking forward to it at all. I won’t be in my usual department tomorrow, which is men’s clothing in a department store.

Instead I’ll be helping in out in the young ladies’ department, where a group of insecure, perpetually ill-humored females works. With one exception, they all delight in taking out the ennui that marrs their dull lives on helpless (because inferior) university student interns.

There are a lot of us working there on on-call basis, because the job pays well, even though folding clothes and manning the cash register can be a tiny bit repetitive.

What can I say? I need the money. Whenever it gets really boring or annoying, I tell myself to remember the salary I’ll be getting. That’s my mantra.

What do you guys hate about going to work, and Mondays in particular?

So my cheap old camera was a little eccentric sometimes. It usually drove me crazy. I’m glad to say I’ve upgraded a little, but, being a poor student and all, my camera still isn’t state of the art, obviously. It’s not even an SRL. I have an old analog Nikon from the 90s for that.

In this instance, however, I kind of liked what my old cam did to my pictures, and I hope you do too.¬† It gave them some kind of soft watercolor brush because there wasn’t enough light.Image

I took a lot of interesting pictures of the Vatican when I lived there. Though my thoughts on the Catholic church are divided, to say the least, the lavishness of Catholic churches especially in Italy does have its own kind of appeal. I will be publishing some more pictures every now and then to give you an idea of what I mean, because one tiny fountain and a plaza surrounded by columns and saints simply aren’t enough.
