Danielle’s Diaries
Il Volo fan and college student. Her experience following Il Volo

Ciao everyone!! It’s been a crazy couple weeks for me! Since it’s close to April Fools I thought I’d tell you about a prank my roommate and I pulled on our friend last year, it involves Il Volo. But first, since many of you haven’t heard the story, let me tell you what happened with Gian, Ignazio, and my hair at the meet and greet, lol.

So after I got my picture with the guys, I turned to Ignazio and was thanking him again and hugging him and just pretty much freaking out. Well, my back was to Gian and my longer than waist length, very thick hair caught his attention. Gian started touching my hair and saying how amazed he was with how long it is and he accidentally caught my already loose ribbon on his sleeve and completely untied it. Ignazio smacked his arm and said “Yes yes, she has beautiful hair, you have your own beautiful hair! Leave hers alone!” Ignazio then turned me around and retied my ribbon and then hugged me again. I still have that ribbon and am never untying that bow! Hehe!

Now for my April Fool’s Day story! My roommate and I last year had a friend who we could tell liked the guys, but she wouldn’t admit it to us. She’d say she liked their music but she wouldn’t admit to liking them like we did. Well when the pictures of the guys with Pope Francis got posted she finally couldn’t contain herself anymore and started gushing about how adorable Gian’s smile was. This gave my roommate and I an absolutely hilarious idea. We printed around 80 wallet sized pictures of Gian, mainly of him smiling but of course we included many speedo ones as well! She had to work the entire morning of April Fool’s Day, and had Chem lab with me in the afternoon. So that morning my roommate and I snuck into her room and tapped pictures all over it. On her door, in her fridge, in her closet, above her bed, on her walls, on her desk, everywhere! We even made streamers of pictures that we hung just inside the door! We had three friends hide in her room to video her reaction and I pretended to just be going to her room with her after we got back from class and videoed from that angle. Her reaction was hilarious!!! She was basically attacked by the streamers as she walked in the door and then she was laughing so hard she could barely look for the other pictures! It took her almost a week before she finally found all the pictures we’d hidden, lol. It was one of the best pranks ever!

One more quick story for you all, I showed the Grande Amore video to two more of my friends and both were literally almost drooling over Piero and Ignazio and when Gian’s mask got pulled off at the end and he smiled both of their jaws literally dropped and the one said “That’s it, a Spiderman kiss is now on my bucket list. He’s so sexy!! How is that even possible?!?” And both friends told me the other day that they have each watched the video at least 20 more times on their own.

I hope you guys enjoyed my adventures again! I have tons and tons of homework to do and I think I’m getting sick, so until next time, Ciao ragazzi!! Ti voglio bene!
