7 Ways Italians Can Tell You’re a Stoopid Tourist | ft. Cam

Screen Shot 2019-01-04 at 3.09.31 PM.png

Cam: Hey everyone! Hope 2019 is treating you well so far. Today, I’m collaborating with my sister, Ella, on this post. So, Ella, what’s this one about?

Ella: So since Cam and I are in Italy, we had an idea for a collaborative post. We had been noticing a couple mistakes we made and I would joke it’s because we’re a “stoopid tourist”… so now we’re making a post out of it! Enjoy! Also—disclaimer: This is not meant to be offensive to anyone, Tourist or Local Italian included. Just a humorous post for everyone to laugh about and enjoy. Oh yeah, and we know it’s spelled “stupid”. 🙂

Cam: Yeah, not all of us make these mistakes, and not all Italians have the same response. With that, enjoy!


1. When there is a red crosswalk sign:

Local Italian: Checks both ways; if it is clear, they coolly stroll across the street even if the sign is red

Tourist: Even if it is clear, they wait for the green sign for 1.2 billion years

2. When saying “Happy New Year”:

Local Italian: Smoothly and fluently delivers their sentences; “buon anno”

Tourist: BUNANU???

3. When there is a “push” door:

Local Italian: Calmly pushes through door

Tourist: Pulls so hard on the handle it falls off; then realizes the giant sign on the door says “push”

4. When saying “Thank you”:

Local Italian: Grazie

Tourist: GRACIASESE!!!

5. When there is a car approaching from behind:

Local Italian: Notices car, coolly steps aside

Tourist: Hears car and turns all the way around to confirm the two headlights coming at them is a car, then yells and runs for their life

6. When saying “Hello”:

Local Italian: Ciao

Tourist: BONJOUR!?

7. When using the bathroom:

Local Italian: Notices that the men’s stall has a picture of a man’s face on it and the women’s stall has a picture of a woman’s face on it; uses stall accordingly

Tourist: Disregards pictures, thinking it’s a shared bathroom, and accidentally uses the opposite stall


Cam: Italy is an awesome place to be a tourist, but it’s best to avoid committing any of these errors. The scale for the severity of the error may result in the following. The greater the severity of the stoopid mistake, the further down list you may receive.

  • Annoyed look
  • Angry look
  • Muttered insult
  • Shouted insult
  • Death

Please note that some may combine two or more actions listed.

Ella: For example, death by angry looks. Anyway, hope you guys liked it! It was fun to make and all of these instances are something we’ve actually seen happen or experienced ourselves. The last one was something that I personally did as an American Tourist, oops. But now if you ever go to Italy, you’ll know what to do (and what not to)! Ciao grazie everyone 😀

Cam: Well, there we have it! Thanks to everyone for reading, and just so you know, a lot of people are really nice here. But, hey, why be rude? Be courteous to the people wherever you’re traveling, have fun, and always pack your coat.

Ella: If it’s cold.

Happy 2019!

Heyyy guess who’s in Italy?

That would be me! We traveled to Rome for New Year’s, so here I am! The city is super beautiful and the architecture is amazing. Everything is just breathtaking.

The actual travel part was not so fun, we had a connecting flight in New Jersey and then some trouble with our flight to Rome. The flight here (Rome) was quite uncomfortable and I wasn’t able to get much sleep. However, we made it, and the apartment is great!

It’s been really fun walking around Italy, plus hearing everyone around us talk in Italian.

A bunch of the roads are cobblestone, which is very cool, and basically every building you pass by has incredible arches, carvings, windows, etc and looks like it took forever to build.

Another note about the cobblestone streets–even if they look like they are solely for walking on, many cars and motorcycles come up behind you, so you have to be on the lookout. Most don’t have sidewalks either.

Cam and I are collaborating on a humorous post referencing our time here, so that should be out soon. Stay tuned!

We came here on Saturday afternoon (early Saturday morning for those in the U.S.) and we’re all still trying to get over the jetlag. It’s been strange.

Alright, now the part you’ve all been waiting for: pictures!

We visited the Trevi Fountain yesterday, which was just incredible. I hadn’t actually seen it before, even in pictures (I know, I know, I’m a stoopid American), so it was really breathtaking.

Of course, the pictures don’t do the real thing justice, but it’s huge and just amazing!

We also visited the Pantheon. The funny thing was, we started at the back and I took a video of it because I just thought it was beautiful. I had no idea it was the back of the Pantheon.

(And yes, that’s good ol’ Cam, my bro.)

Then we got to the front and realized that what we saw before was the back of it.

It’s so huge, plus so ancient. I think it’s 1,892 years old.

Lastly (of that day), the Spanish Steps!

These were taken after we had climbed up the steps to the top. We got to see the sunset from there.

That was all for yesterday–today we went to a couple markets and bookstores, the second market right in front of this amazing church, Sant’Agnese in Agone, which was built in 1949. We couldn’t take pictures inside but it was–surprise–breathtaking. Tons of statues carved out of marble–actually basically everything in the church was carved out of marble. It was beautiful. Sadly, even though it was explicitly stated no photos were allowed, people were still taking photos inside. And not just photos, but flash photos, which can seriously damage that stuff over time.

Anyway, I got to take pictures of the outside, so here it is:

We’re going to a New Year’s Eve celebration at Circus Maximus soon–and it’ll be 2019 here six hours before most of you guys!

That’s all for now. Stay tuned for Cam’s and my collaboration!

Ciao, and buon anno! ❤

(P.S. Merry late Christmas!)

Hey y’all! //oh gosh i say y’all too much and im not even southern//

A lot of fun things have been going on in my life recently! I’m reading the Secret Garden for school this semester, I’m only five chapters in so far but I like it a lot. I’m also a teacher assistant in a program called Teen Club at my animal shelter, the Humane Society. The Teen Club is the program I attended in 2017 as a student and that’s how I got my start volunteering at the animal shelter. This year, the program is open to anyone in the age range of 12-17 years. My first session as a teacher assistant was on Saturday, it was super fun! I was at the sign in desk and I wrote out everyone’s nametags with a labelmaker. There was a huge line, and it was a bit awkward when someone had a long name and their paper was printing b/c it was slow XD Plus, I could tell throughout the day, some people were judging us b/c my friends and I are in their age range and we’re TAs instead of students, but oh well. //we know things.//

I also helped give a tour of our facilities and hand out the pamphlets that my friend stapled. At one point, my two friends (also TAs) and I had gathered in front of the large group to lead them to the training building. As everyone was still filing through the door, I had my arm around both of my friends as we waited. Then my one friend (I’ll call her L) held out her arm and she said “Ella, put your leg here,” so then I put both my legs on her arm and she held me for a second in front of everyone XD

But then she dropped me complaining that I was too heavy XDD mood

This Saturday, I’m doing the same process with another group of students, so it should be fun! This time, I’ll have two other friends with me, which means there will be five TAs overall including me woop

Together, using all of our first name initials, our friend group is “JERLD.”

It’s beautiful.

A Summer-y of my Summer Break!

Hey guys!

In case you didn’t get the joke… I meant summary. Of my summer break. But you probably got that. 😛

I returned to school on the 13th of August (I know, it’s early). So here’s my summary of my break!


May: I go on a trip to Austin to see my sister Saige and afterwards, my sister comes home for the summer. I finish all my schoolwork for summer break mid-May and we go on a trip to New Orleans, where we celebrate Saige’s birthday! After this, I have my ballet recital and it’s super fun. Our performance goes great!

June: Pride month starts!

IMG_7748.PNG

My face gets sunburnt at the beach! I go to see Infinity War!

IMG_8276.PNG

My dog turns 10 years old!

I reach 50 volunteer hours at my local animal shelter. I get my yellow dot as a volunteer at my animal shelter, which means I can walk slightly difficult dogs in addition to the easier dogs I could walk before. iHop switches to iHob. (Ahhh!) We celebrate Cam’s sweet sixteen! I finish watching all seasons of Sherlock with my siblings. Pride month ends. 😦

July: My volunteer name badge gets washed with my shirt accidentally and both of my animal shelter dots are washed off. I save a boatload of Sherlock gifs and pictures to my camera roll to cope with the fact that there are no more episodes to watch. My phone runs out of storage. The next time I go to the animal shelter, I have a very embarrassing experience.* We go to the beach. We celebrate Fourth of July! I play Gymnopedie No. 1 on the piano for Grace, because, you know, that’s what friends do. I watch a movie called Pride (the one with the beautiful Andrew Scott aka Moriarty in it) with my sister!

IMG_8291.GIF

I go ice skating with Cam! I dog-sit my neighbor’s dogs with Cam while they are on a trip.

IMG_8303.JPG

I buy a pair of Converse hi-tops!

Image result for black converse hi tops

I go to the mall with my friend! And now it’s Shark Weeeek! I make vegan rice crispy treats with my mom! I go to my friend’s birthday party and jump around in a trampoline park!** I get pink eye and have to wear my old glasses for a week! Woot! I learn the Sherlock theme on the piano! I make vegan mini cheesecakes for National Cheesecake Day!

IMG_8425.JPG

August: We go back-to-school shopping! I find out that I get to go to Texas with my sister and mom to help my sis move into her college apartment! Cam and I go back to school! My friend adopts a kitten from the animal shelter I volunteer at!

*I try to help this group of potential adopters by taking this one dog to a viewing room for them, but then as I tried to exit the viewing room the dog got loose, ran down the hallway, peed on the floor, and then her tag broke off of her collar. Woot woot

… But anyway I got a staff member who had watched the whole thing take the dog back to the viewing room, and I pretty much just avoided the family for the rest of the day. XD However, I must have done some good because they adopted the dog. 

**At the birthday party, Cam and my friend play Gran Turismo. My friend picks this nice, fast car for the race, and Cam picks the Toyota Prius as a joke. But he actually wins. IN A PRIUS. A car that only goes up to 55 MPH. XD

But now, summer break is over. It’s time…

For school to begin.


So, how was your summer break? I hope you liked the summary! I probably missed some things, but I tried to include as much as I could.

Guess What?

Hey guys!

Guess what? I’m sick!

It started on Friday, and I’m only starting to feel better now (Monday). Over the past few days, I’ve had terrible headaches, an ever-present sore throat, nausea, fever, etc. Let’s hope it goes away soon.

On a happier note, the Unshreddible Hulk story, written by my brother Cam, is now up on the OYEU website! It’s part the new Marvel Origami Universe series that they started. You can check it out here. Gotta say, it’s pretty awesome.

That’s all for today!

//and on a slightly unrelated note, this is beautiful.//

Mind Blown

So I was reading a tumblr page full of writing prompts b/c you know, I need those creative vibes to … vibe?

Anyway…

I happened upon this:

vealsandwich asked: Hey amigo! I have a question: if you sat on your own voodoo doll, would you be able to get up? Have a nice day!

count-sudoku: The weight would actually compound like the sound waves in a feedback loop, sending you into the center of the earth.

writing-prompt-s: Eventually you will have so much mass that you collapse into a supermassive black hole, swallowing the entire universe

so don’t accidentally sit on your voodoo doll m’dudes

Detective Camster + Detective Stitchio: Episode 2. The Case of iVariety

Hey guys!

Welcome to the second episode of Detective Camster + Detective Stitchio! (You can find our first episode here.) Today we are investigating what exactly happened for the iVariety group to suddenly disappear, the founder’s whereabouts and his plans for the future. Enjoy!


Detective Camster: WE ARE BACK! Oh yeah! 

Detective Stitchio: *helpfully plays Detective Camster + Detective Stitchio Theme Song*

Detective Camster: And today, folks, we have a very special case! A few months ago, the famed team known as the iVariety squad vanished suddenly.

*crowd gasp*

Detective Camster: For this episode, we will be determining what exactly happened. The team consisted of the incredible Faraz Haider, myself, Detective Stitchio, Mintyfreshie, and Captain Grace. It’s time to determine… what precisely went down in this case.


Detective Camster: Ah, Chicago. A lovely city filled with art and beauty. Yet it has a big secret. It is also the home of the missing Faraz Haider. We were informed that the suspect would be meeting in this cafe in approximately—*checks wristwatch*—five minutes.

Detective Camster: *watches person dressed up as a pirate enter cafe*

Nope, not him.

Detective Stitchio: Are you sure? *squints* Yeah, nope.

Detective Stitchio: *watches old lady with chihuahua in stroller enter cafe* That’s definitely not him.

Detective Camster: *watches Nicolas Cage enter the cafe*

Nope, not him.

Wait, is that Nick Cage? 😮

Detective Stitchio: No, it’s Nicolas Cage. *catches his eye and flashes peace sign* Sup, Nicolas!

Detective Camster: *watches dragon enter cafe*

Hmm, no.

Detective Stitchio: *watches a person with hood over head and large sunglasses covering eyes* Is that…? FARAZ!

*Faraz looks up and tries to run back out*

Detective Stitchio: Hold up!

Detective Camster: Faraz! We must speak. On a talk show. We have Level 158 Random Post Authorization.

*both hold up IDs* 

Detective Stitchio: You’re coming with us.


Detective Camster: Now, let’s hear the testimony of the leader himself. The unbelievable. The incredible. The amazing Faraz Haider.

Faraz Haider: I…um…*tries to escape in time machine*

Detective Camster: Stitchio, get that time machine! QUICK! The entire case rests on this!

Detective Stitchio: *grabs Faraz a split second before he vanishes into the void in the time machine forever*

Faraz Haider: Dang it. Couldn’t escape in time. Um, brb, let me grab one of my fancy wigs. *grabs wig* Okay, ready I guess.

Detective Stitchio: Ahem, so, what exactly led up to this sudden disappearance of the iVariety group?

Faraz Haider: I promise you! Nothing happened with iVariety… well, not exactly… the site’s actually still up. –> http://ivarietyblog.wordpress.com/

Detective Stitchio: But why did the group’s posts conclude?

Faraz Haider: Personal stuff. But I promise you! There is still a post available.

Detective Camster: Do you like cake?

Faraz Haider: … Well who doesn’t?

Detective Camster: Interesting. Just collecting background information.

Faraz Haider: Anyways, as far as I know, the rest of the group didn’t disappear at that time. Only I disappeared that fateful day. Minty’s still alive and well in England, and Grace is in…well, wherever she is.

Detective Stitchio: … *whispers* South Carolina.

Detective Camster: That’s off the record. Transcriber, can you… no? Okay. *pause* We have been dying to find Faraz. Now, when we do, we find ramblings of one upon the topics of wigs. Faraz, what, indeed, has occurred (in basic) since that fateful day?

Faraz Haider: Lots of soul searching.

Detective Camster: *googles “soul”*

Faraz Haider: I found out that life has been taken over by Fortnite, that overrated game, and that I don’t want to be one of those people who quits their whole life to play Fortnite with a bunch of random people. *cough cough, rappers playing with gamers, cough cough*

*some of the crowd boos and some cheer*

Detective Stitchio: Most interesting.

Detective Camster: For more information on how Fortnite is plotting to take over the world, please see our other case, Fortnite Apocalypse: The Nite of Death. *pause* We have just one last question for you.

Detective Stitchio: *thinking of question* Hold on.

Detective Camster: *plays Jeopardy theme song* Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo-doo… doo-doo-doo-doo-DOO, doo-doo…

Faraz Haider: Oh by the way, how’d you get to Chicago so fast? I swear, it was just two minutes ago when I found out you wanted to interrogate me.

Detective Stitchio: We have our ways. Last question, Faraz—what does the future hold for you?

Faraz Haider: I am doing a project involving both YouTube and WordPress. I have a deep passion for music, and so I began hosting a WordPress site where I upload YouTube videos that you can only access from my website. It’s one that I host with my ridiculous so-called daughter, Cosmic the Egg. Goodness, she’s taken over my life…

Detective Camster: We should like to interrogate—no, actually, I don’t even want to know…

*awkward silence*

Detective Stitchio: Well, on that note, that wraps up our investigation. We hope that we have answered any questions you might have had about the disappearance of the iVariety squad and the whereabouts of the one and only, Faraz Haider. And any questions about his liking of cake.

Detective Camster: Someone said cake? *looks in Faraz’s fridge*

Faraz Haider: GET OUT OF MY FRIDGE! THE CAKE IS FOR ME, NOT YOU! *growls*

Producer: Okay, cut!

Detective Camster: I agree, let’s cut the cake and eat it together.

Faraz Haider: *calms down* Thank goodness, you’re not eating it all! You know how much I paid for it? I paid like 50 bucks for this cake.

Detective Stitchio: I’d prefer if it’s all for me… But very well.

*camera zooms out on everyone eating cake together and fades to black*


That concludes our post! Hope you guys enjoyed the second post of the series. I apologize for this second post coming so far after the first episode, but at least it wasn’t a one-and-done. There will be more episodes coming soon! (Including Fortnite Apocalypse: The Nite of Death. 😛 ) Special thanks to my friend Faraz and my brother Cam for participating in this post. You can access Faraz Haider’s awesome new website here.

Thanks for reading!

Sherlock.

Hey guys!

So recently (like four or five days ago) my siblings and I started watching Sherlock (BBC). My sister had already watched all the seasons except for the fourth because apparently it’s terrible (?), but it was the first time Cam and I had seen the show. We finished seasons 1-3 last night and it already hurts my heart that it’s over.

Although it was cheesy at times…

//cough cough … floating words//

8c5cd9c01025b1300ee4201aa52fec46

I still really loved it and I hope, if they come out with a fifth season, that it turns out better than the seemingly disappointing season four.

Catch… you… later 😉

//P.S. THE THEME SONG IS GOLD//

Happy Pride Month!

Hey you wonderful muffins!

Happy Pride Month to y’all! Pride Month is a month dedicated to celebrating the LGBT+ community, which I’m proud to be a part of.

Before I get into the exciting part of this post, I’ll explain myself—I identify as pansexual.

And no, I’m not attracted to pans.

And no, I’m not confused.

And no… there are more than two genders. To expand on that… so… we pansexuals respect people’s biological sex, gender, and gender identity, but we don’t define our relationships by it. The dictionary definition of pansexual is “not limited in sexual/romantic choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.” Basically, in simple English, we are attracted to all genders.

A common misconception is that we’re literally attracted to everyone, which is incorrect. I’m not going to have a crush on everyone who enters the room, just like a straight person wouldn’t have a crush on every person of the opposite gender entering the room. I mean, usually. XD We simply can be attracted to a person no matter their biological sex or gender identity.

Now for the exciting part! My good friend Captain Grace drew this drawing for Pride Month on paper:

2018-06-04-1

//which is adorable if I may say so myself//

But anyways, I took this photo into my favorite digital art app, Ibis Paint X, and did some magic on it :3 … Meaning I traced the picture, then airbrushed color into it and //poof beauteousness//

Here it is:

2018-06-04

I really loaf it with all of my heart

Enjoy!
