Il Volo fan and college student. Her experience following Il Volo

Ciao guys! Sorry I haven’t written recently, it is the end of the semester for me and I’m in the middle of prepping for finals.  As I’m typing this I’m sitting here proctoring an exam for General Chemistry because I work as a Teacher’s Assistant. The freshmen in Gen. Chem and the other upperclassmen TA’s have grown to like Il Volo since I play their songs every week in lab. So far Beautiful Day and Surrender are the favorites. I haven’t actually had that much time to listen to the guys these past few weeks since I’ve been so busy, some nights I’m only getting 2 or 3 hours of sleep! I can’t believe I’m almost done with my second year of college! I never would have been able to do it without the guys music, it is seriously the only thing that gets me through my bad days. I know that no matter how stressful a class is or how hard an exam was, the beautiful music of Il Volo will always cheer me up and calm me down. Currently favorite song has been Romantica followed closely by Grande Amore, which is probably because my friendship with a guy I like keeps growing and growing, my friends believe he likes me back. Every time I talk to him Romantica plays in my head and I more deeply appreciate all the beautiful love songs the guys have sung. Canzone Per Te is also high on my list now after the release of that AMAZING music video! I showed it to my friends, and they adored it too. They said they are very quickly losing their hearts to these amazing Italians just like I have.

One quick story for you guys, last weekend was absolutely GORGEOUS! Saturday hit 75 degrees so we were spending the day outside in the sun. Around mid-day we decided to take a study break and go to the local ice cream place for some ice cream. My one friend told me to run grab one of my Il Volo CDs since it’s about a 15min drive. So I grabbed We Are Love and we popped it in. We had a minivan full of girls driving down the road with the windows down and blasting Il Volo, it was great! We listened to Beautiful Day, Surrender, Little Things, I Bring You To My Senses, and Historia De Un Amor. You should have heard all of us yelling out the lyrics and laughing and being crazy, it was the most fun we had all week! If only the guys could have joined us, I’m sure they would have loved to have ice cream with 8 crazy college girls, don’t you think? Haha!

Well I’ve got to go now, time to collect the students exams! Until next time, Ciao ragazzi!! Ti voglio bene!
