Who am I anyway...
I'm Ellie and I'm in my early twenties. I was born in Rome,Italy where I've lived my whole life. I'm a very creative and imaginative person, but I can be very methodic and organized at the same time. I also happen to be quite chatty so sometimes my posts are very long. Not my fault...I tend to be carried away when I like something.
...am I my resumé?
I'm a student at the University of Rome "La Sapienza". My major is Cinema studies, but I'm very interested in theatre too. I'd like to pursue a career as a critic after graduation and write for a magazine dedicated to cinema or be a reviewer for a newspaper.
A few of my favourite things
When I'm not studying, I like reading, singing,going to the movies,hanging out with friends, Photoshopping,cooking,swimming and travelling.
I love Art in all its manifestations: paintings, specially modern art and Pop Art,sculptures, architecture, music, theatre and cinema. I'm really fond of musicals, both Broadway ones like A Chorus Line(which is my fave)and Classic Hollywood ones like Singing in the rain.
I'm quite a TV addicted and I love surfing on the net.
