Co is my nickname, Nada is my pseudonym of choice.

My name is Cosima, it's Italian and it comes from the Greek word cosmos, meaning universe. I used to hate it but now I really like it.

I was born in Geneva 20 years ago, and raised in France. Mostly Paris, but also in Strasbourg for some time. There's nowhere in the world I love more than I love Paris, but there are many places I love. Pragu...

It's already July 2011, but I made one of those for 2009.

  • Things just kept getting better.
  • I just kept getting happier.
  • I grew up so much.
  • I learned to take the most out of whatever I get.
  • I realized how incredibly lucky I am in life.
  • I discovered that when it comes to relationships, I haven't changed at all since I was 15.

  • I can pop my hips at will. I do it all the time, which means I'll probably be paralyzed before I'm 60.
  • I descend from a long line of crazy people, so the fact that I'm very neurotic probably indicates that I will grow increasingly insane.
  • I loathe children. Except Mason. Mason is 10, he's the son of one of my aunt/roommate's best friend, and he's insanely cool (when he's not acting like a damn kid).
  • I am the world's biggest procrastinator. I am also very, very lazy.
  • I've lived in France my whole life (mostly Paris), and then I moved on to Texas for a year. Next September I'll be attending Sarah Lawrence College
  • My wardrobe is unforgivably empty. I used to have no interest in clothes, and now I really regret this because I wish I had more. I'm slowly furnishing my wardrobe ...

  • Paris. I lived in Paris. I could see the Eiffel Tower from my bedroom, the Sacré-Coeur and la Défense from my balcony. I miss purposelessly roaming the streets of the city, all the shops, all the culture, all the beauty
  • Cafés. Here in Texas there is no valid equivalent of the charming typical parisian café/bistro. The coffee's gross too.
  • People speaking French
  • The metro. I actually loved taking the subway.
  • Food. It just sucks here.
  • French literature. "Remembrance of Things Past" just doesn't quite have that ring to it.
  • Legal drinking age is 18. All of a sudden I'm a minor again and I don't get to drink. Not that I drink much, but I enjoy a beer in a bar with friends, and the occasional White Russian.

I turned 21 two weeks ago and the year ends in two weeks, so this seems like a good time for one of these.

Important things about this year

  • It was amazing. The best year yet. Sure, there have been some bad things. That's life. But overall, it's overwhelmingly positive.
  • That's it.

  • Dyed your hair? I've had highlights twice, hated it both times. Recently re-died it all dark brown
  • Pulled an all-nighter? Yes. Thanks Adderall
  • Baked a cake? Yes. A few.
  • Fallen down in public? Most recently this December at school, the first snow we had. I was wearing very inadequate shoes.
  • Fallen down the stairs? Yes. Vivid memories of that when I was around six. Tricky spiral stairs.
  • Fainted in public? No, but I almost passed out on the train in Paris this summer.
  • Built something out of wood? I don't think so
  • Burned yourself with a curling iron? No, but with a straightening iron
  • Been hit on by someone too old? Dirty old men.
  • Shopped at Home Depot? I think so

  • I made mistakes. Huge mistakes. But even though I still haven't forgiven myself for them, it's OK. They brought more good then bad in the end
  • My life changed completely
  • I matured incredibly, but I haven't changed much
  • I'm closer to knowing what I want
  • I still haven't "found love," not even close
  • Actually, I haven't had one actual, "real" relationship in 2009
  • But I've got great friends
  • I learned that when I have a guy friend, all he really wants is to fuck me
  • I also learned that just because a guy wants to fuck you, does not mean he wants to be with you
  • I also learned that it doesn't really matter and that whatever shit happens, you'll get over it.
