In order to all of you starting to understand the “why” and “how” of the beginning of this new blogging life I’m leading, there are a few things I have to tell you.
1st. I’m a Portuguese/British girl, with a soul way more British than Portuguese (and the humor).
2nd. I’m an exaggeration of life. Everything I do, I overdo it. I read a 400 pages book in less than 7 hours because once I start, I can’t stop. If I go out at night I don’t come back until it’s morning again. If I drink, I drink until the world starts revolving through my eyes. On the other side, if I’m tired, I don’t get out of bed for 3 straight days. If I’m sad, I can cry for more than 2 hours straight. And if I feel something, I feel it with all of me, the same way that if I don’t feel anything, not a single inch of me will pretend to feel it.
3rd. I love reading. And I like writing. I like to think that I’m good at it too, and that’s one of the main reasons I’m here. This is what I want to do, forever. Just read and write about any and everything. But I can’t, and that leads me to the 4th topic…
4th. I dread my future. I’m studying engineering and I honestly don’t think there is anything else in my life that I would ever hate more. And now you’re asking yourselves “If you hate it that much, why don’t you stop?”. Simple. I have a really big problem in wanting to make everyone happy, apart from me.
5th. I lived in Madrid 6 months last year and it was the best half-year of my life. You think you won’t need to know this, well you’ll figure out it will be pretty handy when you embark on this journey with me.
6th. The title. I almost forgot about the title! Well you’ll see how my life is full of hard choices and how constantly I tend to make the wrong ones. Maybe this is another reason why I’m here, hoping to find some help.
Finally, and if you made it this far, I hope you enjoy looking through my life. I hope you also share your experiences with me.
Thank you for being here. In this beautiful, bold and sad world.
