here we are...
Hi guys, I'm Raffaele but almost everyone here call me Raf or Rafito while in real world I'm Rafa for foreign friends and Lele for my italian friends, so many nicknames...I really have doubts someone is calling me almost every time.
I'm 24 yo and I'm med student. I came from Naples, south Italy but atm I live in Prague because I won a scholarship and so I'm attending my last year of medicine here, hopefully to can graduate at the end of this academic year. Life in Prague is very interesting and especially very different from my former Italian lifestyle. I passed from sweetheart nerd to partyboy while now I'm enjoying a totally different way of life again, globetrottering Europe, spending few money, visiting places, exploring new cultures and points of view, eating when is possible and obviously...very bad
It's normal, just the life of the students aboard
and I forgot to say before coming here I was almost abstemious, now is a getting drunk party every night
Even if at first look I could seem very easygoing (and maybe for so many aspects I'm so) deeply I'm shy and few people, close friends of mine, really know how I am, what I think and they are the only one who really know if something bad happens in my life because I usually love talking about the beauty of life, sharing only the good things are happening to me with the persons around
I have serious problems with my tendency to become addicted to too many things
one of my best friends (who also Teddie knows because he plays his online game) always says I have the power to make "sick" every thing I start to appreciate
Love tennis, of course, cinema, music (jazz and soul), drawing and playing my piano (both things very bad but they are just hobbies), take pics (especially about myself with my friends during our trips
)and writing. Like almost every italian I'm also a shopaholic and I love being well dressed, even if I really dislike the metrosexual style, prefer the golf/sailing style
like you can easily recognize reading this loquacious profile I'm really selfcentred...and also a little bit vain
but self ironic as well, I'm really the first who laugh at my selfcentredness
Started to post on this board because I really wanted to improve my crappy english, now is bad as well but not so ridiculous while If I read my first posts
I'm good friend of Teddie especially, and I have thank him because he's not only a friend of mine but also my english teacher
and he really loves suggest me the right way of saying when I'm wrong (often)
I know also Frannie, our leader here, and Jai, from Pauloland, a really nice girl, some Djokotards too that was the first place where I started to write even if now is not the same of the beginning and some posters from some chatthreads
In tennis usually I love the backhand, especially the doublehanded bh, maybe because of the harmony between the two hands during the movement, it makes me totally charmed. In fact my favorite are the two I think have the best dh backhand, David Nalbandian and Maria Sharapova, I like the energy the can impress in those shots. I'm a big fan also of Elena Dementieva, Paulo, Misha and Coria.
For sure a very very special (and big) place in my heart is for Gillou, I'm a prude supporter of him since the beginning, in fact in italian forums people laughed at me when three years agoo I said he was very strong and talented
now they have to apologize. I love his ability to paint the court, his geometries and also the purity of his shots. Very special and personal tennis, and he seems also a nice person, always a good point to add!
Today he lost but as always he fought on court, with heart and incredible shots. only our Simontards at the beginning of the year believed in him, now he really deserves a very long holyday but, for sure we'll wait for him the next year ready to cheer always for our little poussin
c'mon Gillou, you rock
