Still in London

Everything is going well here in London. I'm enjoying myself a lot and it has been a great experience so far. I haven't found a permanent job yet, but I'm doing a project as a freelancer. This project allows me to develop my skills and gives me some money to stay around searching for a permanent job. =)

Summing up I think that I can say that at the moment I have at least three jobs... 1- searching for a job, 2- searching for a place to stay, 3- and my freelancer job. So I'm quite busy, which is very good.

I'm so busy that I haven't had the chance to visit London properly. I think I've visited Cambridge more than London, which is not bad, because Cambridge is a very nice city! =) And I know that I'll have the chance to visit London, bit by bit. =) But I think that first I'll need to settle down.

PS: One thing that has surprised me here in London is the weather. I was expecting more rainy days than I got... so I can't even complain about the weather. =) I've even add the chance of seeing the sun a couple of times. Can you imagine that? =P

PPS: I must also share with all of you the joy that I feel about Benfica's latest matches. I hope they can keep up with this great games! =)

Geekness Alert

Context: Java Conference in Krakow.

Note for non developers or geek visitors: Java is a programming language and Ruby is another programming language... =) I hope this makes it clear.

Hi everyone. =)

First of all I want to thank all the readers of the blog who have replied to my last post. Most of you said that there was no real point in creating a new blog, and I agree. Regarding the language I decided to switch to English, as you might have noticed. I think that most of my readers understand English and I know that some potential readers won't follow this because they lack the knowledge of Portuguese. So I decided to make this change.

As someone said in the commentary box I am too lazy to both in Portuguese and in English, but if you think that I should do that, please let me know. And I will think about it.

Someone also said that I would need to change some other things around the blog, but I am feeling a bit too lazy. Nevertheless I will try to do that soon or later. =)

And so this is the post of change. From Portuguese to English and, hopefully, from lack of writing to plenty of writing. But I make no promises, sorry!=) So if you grow tired of coming here every week to look for new posts, just start using some Feed Reader (like google.com/reader, or some other)! =) That way you won't need to come here, the news will meet you there! If you have questions on Feed readers, or on feeds alone, please just ask and I'll try to explain what are they! =)

Before finishing this post I would like to make a small disclaimer:

Ladies and Gentlemen this is a personal blog from a Portuguese dude who thinks he knows how to write in English. He knows that his English could be worse, but it surely could be better. So he would like to ask you to bare in mind that he is not native speaker (or writer for that matter) of English, but he will try to do his best. But please try to understand if you find huge mistypes and strange phrases and statements... sorry! =) If you want to correct my English, feel free, I will thank you!=)

And that's all for now Folks!=)


Por favor ajudem-me...

Devo criar um novo blog para esta minha vinda para Londres ou uso este?

Escrevo em Inglês ou em Português?

Agradeço comentários!

Próxima Etapa

Depois de ter concluído o curso e de ter tirado umas férias mais ou menos planeadas, mas não exactamente como eu queria, chegou a hora de começar a próxima etapa da minha vida.

Como grande parte de vocês já deve saber o meu objectivo passa por sair outra vez de Portugal, mas desta vez por um período um pouco mais longo do que das duas últimas vezes.

Desta vez irei para o país que talvez me tenha visto nascer, se tiver estado atento. Vou ver se encontro um emprego na área de desenvolvimento web ou engenharia de software. Espero encontrar algo que seja do meu agrado!

Para a semana há uma feira de emprego em Londres para recém-licenciados/mestrados, etcetera. Espero que me ajude a encontrar o que procuro! Vamos a ver!

Desejem-me sorte! =)

Descobri o óbvio

O ser humano não é imortal.

Carpe diem.
