The Fundamentals will all be inspired by my own relationship, as an individual, with the key aspects of life. They will include a number of things I consider important on a very abstract level. (I'm pretty much an abstract person myself). There will be seven fractals in total in this saga, this one being the third.
The Achiever represents my relationship with ambition. I believe the title is pretty self-explanatory in this one. I've always had a really strong drive to plan my future ahead and work like crazy in order to make it happen the way I wanted it to. I'm currently in one of those decisive phases of life: I have a dream I very much want to come true, and it is being accepted into a prestigious university and getting my Master's degree in Computer Engineering there. I'm at my second Bachelor's degree year right now (out of three) and one of the necessary, vital conditions for me to be able to achieve my goal is graduating in July next year, which is going to be a lot of hard work and a really difficult task, one that not very many students have completed over the years. I've been doing fairly good with grades and such so far, but it's always been out of effort, and I don't think I'm even particularly gifted for the subject I'm studying; what I know is that I love it more than anything else I've ever studied before, and given how much I care about it, I know I need to get even better and push my limits further, I need to be the very best I can.
I've been studying like crazy for I don't even remember how many months now ^^; One easily loses track of time when academic life is so absorbing and demanding, to the point I've been having a hard time even creating fractals, and this one is no exception. I made an earlier version which looked quite different, and had green in it, but I had to remake about 65% of it because I didn't like it. I took out everything that isn't fiery and bright because that's the colour of my ambition, and so I want it to be the dominating shade of my determination. I roughened the shapes, added details and clutter, and whatever else felt right to say this is what I am, what I want, and what I WILL obtain.
And this is the result. I'm posting it at like 1AM (yes, it's THAT late over here in Italy right now) and I feel like I should really be getting some sleep but hey, this is important to me and I felt like giving it priority was the right thing to do. ...Who am I kidding and WHY THE FUCK AM I STILL AWAKE OFF TO BED RIGHT NOW BYEBYE

Momentomomentomomentomomentomomentomomento: vuoi fare la specialistica al Sant'Anna per caso? :noes:

Ahah, no, lÓ nemmeno ce l'hanno ingegneria informatica :lol: Sto puntando molto pi¨ in alto, ovvero a un'universitÓ nella top 20 di qui: [link]
La pi¨ papabile come piani di studio e tempistiche sarebbe quella di Zurigo, ho un collega che ci si Ŕ iscritto proprio quest'anno dopo la fine della triennale!
