Ciao everyone!!! It’s so great to be able to write for you again! I apologize I couldn’t write last semester, but it was literally the semester from hell for me. Even though they aren’t all necessarily happy stories, I do have a few stories involving the guys from last semester, but don’t worry, I have happy ones too!!

So, first I’ll start with the sad stuff. I don’t want to depress anyone, but the guys really helped me through some things last semester and I want to share them. To sum most of it up, a guy I’d fallen for and who I thought had fallen for me rejected me for another girl and told me I’m just a sweet friend. Needless to say this was not easy to accept and since it happened in September it did not make my semester begin well. To follow that, I learned my little brother was sick and needed surgery (he’s doing better now), found out a family friend’s cancer was back, my grandpa had a heart attack, and we lost two of our horses. This all happened within the same week plus I had a very heavy load of 18 credits of mainly upper level science classes I was in. I honestly think the only thing that got me through those days was the guys and their music. Every day I’d get back from class, put in my headphones, and just listen to their music until I felt better. And when it got really bad I’d go for an hour or two walk with just me and their music. I definitely owe my sanity to them, I never would have made it through otherwise.

Now, on to happier things!! I have much more free time this semester, so my friend and I (the one I was roommates with freshman year) take at least one night a week where we lay on one of our beds and just watch videos of the guys for almost two hours. It is such a stress relief for us and more and more of our other friends have been joining us and are falling in love with them. I’ve walked into my friends rooms multiple times and caught them with some of the music videos pulled up on their laptops. I’m not sure if you guys have read my concert story for this year (if you haven’t go find it and read it!!) but it was AMAZING!!!! I will never forget that night and neither will my sister, she’ll still call me sometimes to talk about it!

Another quick funny story before I go! Over spring break this year, me and a few friends from school that live by me all got together to make food and have a party. We had pulled pork, enchiladas, beans, guacamole, pizza, cannoli, cake, and wine. And all the food was homemade of course, and I made the pizza and cannoli lol. Well, as we were making them, my one friend and I decided to turn on Il Volo. Next thing you knew the other three girls were dancing around with glasses of wine and I was dancing while putting the pizzas in the oven and rolling out the cannoli dough! Then our one guy friend that was there got back from the store and just stood in the door staring at us. We thought he was going to laugh or tease us, but instead he started pretending to sing along!! It was hilarious!! He’s not nearly as good as the guys of course, but he isn’t bad! He took over the cannoli frying and joined us in our silly dancing around the kitchen. It was a GREAT night!

Now I have to get back to doing my BioStats homework so I can go out with my friends tonight. Ciao ragazzi!! Ti voglio bene!

  1. I enjoy your diary. Keep writing about all the fun you and your friends
    have with Il Volo’s music. It’s an upbeat for me and I’m sure others.

  2. I feel your pain, Il Volo does help. I just saw them in San Jose, they were wonderful, sounded better than ever, looked better than ever. You sound like a lovely young girl, at my age all I can do is admire and enjoy. My advice to you, darling, is to find a man who treats you exactly the way you want to be treated. Remember they.

    1. Gerri, missed seeing you (didn’t make it to San Jose). Glad you got to enjoy the concert there and give good advice to our darling Danielle!

      Wishing you IL VOLO infusion of love and joy,

  3. Danielle, God bless you. I am so sorry for all the challenges and loss you experienced. Sort of mind boggling. I’ll be holding you and your loved ones in my thoughts and prayers.

    And how great that you’re enjoying IL VOLO relief and joy to get you through these times, to make and share great friendships, and to spread the Love of IL VOLO.

    What fun with your party! If you had been at Las Vegas Fan Faire, there would have been more than 1 or 2 of us Dancing! That would have put a big smile on my face!

    Grace and peace,
    Jeanine, Compassion’s Doorway

  4. Makes me feel years younger reading your story. So many of us went thru some of your bad and good times in our younger days. The PRINCE CHARMING will come along when you least expect it. Marie has and iron hold on the “Prince of Marsala”.
