METAL HORSES of the world: A quick review on Pattern Recognition

What ALL people born on the year of 1990 do:

Even when we are on vacation, we know which style we want to drive!

 

Remember:

the Water horse is never there.

the Fire horse will be happy.

Earth horse will be food motivated.

Metal horses know their job and are happy after they learned.

A wood horse is athletic but they can be more bossy than a human driving.

Second archery lesson

Super nice to hit bullseye twice. Once at the 5 meter line and another at the 10 meter shooting line.

I am very proud and thank all the patience from the instructors. These practices are taken at UMAC archery range. Please check the quota available if you want to subscribe during the academic year.

I had fun, watch my video and enjoy 😉

2017 in photos

Reviewing all my digital photos of the year, I realized how much I changed, and how much God had blessed me. When we remember to let Jesus in, our troubles are solved.

Go through the photos and enjoy my overall balance of 2017.

Within this year I:

Worked in the University studio, and by the end of the year a total of 175 graduate students had passed under my apprentice supervision.

Went to Thailand for a short trip with my bestie ❤

Went to Brazil to see my family after over a year of skype calls. Spent my 27th birthday very close with the ones I love.

With some free time, and a heart still in pain and doubt, I had an amazing re-connection with my favorite sport, showjumping. In a few weeks went from scratch to jumping 1 meter high. Had a wisdom tooth removed in between the training. Yes, nothing could stop me.

Step in South Africa, being Africa the 4th continent I ever set feet.

Went back to follow up with the sport highlighted in the city I live, horse racing. And made even more friends, some of the best so far, I dare to say 😀

A visit in Shanghai with the Soft Tennis Club from University of Macau for cultural exchange with some of my finer friends.

Lost count on how many times I been to Shanghai, but in 2017 was the first time I went up the radio tower.

Saw Brazilian soccer team Grêmio win a championship in China, and I had close participation in collecting data for the team head.

Participated in the EU Macau Model 2017 where I gained so much knowledge in practice. One of the best experiences I had in the political sphere.

If it wasn’t enough, I competed in the official half-marathon of Macau. And, while some of my closest friends would tell me I couldn’t stand until the 5th Kilometer, I accomplished the whole course of 21 km with success. Running + walking, took me 2:30h. Super intense, but as well super addictive.

Had one of my besties leaving the country for good, and with that came a complete withdraw from parties.

The last two months of the year were amazing. Met new people and created real and strong relationships, crazy people who like to wake up as early as I: with the roosters, symbol of the year we leave now behind.

Guess Macau is not that bad after all. For more that I complain sometimes, I know that I will miss this land whenever the time comes that I need to leave…

Wishing 2018 be as good as ❤ Simple as.

 

Bit of nature

Walking inside the campus this morning, I luckly had a macro lens in my pocket. While I was looking for the best position and angle for a camera, I observed a shy, but not less dangerous bee feeding herself from the red flowers I wanted to put in frame. I quickly changed the lens and tried to get as close as possible from her without making her nervous (I can’t bear to get injured from her attack at this time of year). 

The result: 


a pattern that I like, and we can see she has a furry body 😍

She left me enchanted and I thank her for letting me get this close 🐝💕

Life Planning

Today I want to share with you, some excel models for planning your life. It is pretty easy, and you can change it anytime during your life, either you have reached a goal, or simply want to change it. I find myself revising mine many times during the year.

Please note that the below files are examples only, and are really not related with my personal life. But it is a good starting point if there is anything you want to improve in your life.

Download it and rewrite it as you wish 😀

Thank you, see you soon!

2016 – First chapter

Couldn’t be happier with my new life

In less than a week my life completely changed. After 2 months trying to negotiate at my former company about new working schedule or any better working conditions, I needed to take the tough decision to quit.

I could never have imagined that it would have been so tough. But I knew it was the right thing to do at the moment I got a good news from the University I was already studying my Masters degree. They got me a scholarship and so I needed to review my whole calendar and again, leave some things behind. My friends ask me, did your colleagues cried when you left? I say, nooooo, I did! hahaha

It was sad for me, because I have been working with amazing people in China for the past 3 years. And I learned so much from them. Even on those days I wanna kill someone at a meeting table, even those days are precious.

Anyhow, that was one day I simply said to myself: “enough”. I wasn’t feeling like they were caring enough, and I didn’t want that for my life anymore. No space for growth, and was an act of respect. I staid one day again with absolutely nothing to do in my apartment. And it didn’t make me comfortable. The next day everything changed. Suddenly I was at my new job, which is this incredible part time job at the University’s video lab and communication office. People are even more amazing, and that is making everything in my life go on smoother.  I am so lucky to have this opportunity. And in some point of view it can be really scaring because I am again leaving a city where I already knew everything. The pros and cons. Now everything is new again.

I like this feeling of freedom, which can be scary for some people or even seam some kind of craziness. But that’s how I learned to live my life. Letting go.

Walking out from library (UMAC)

 

Keep them coming!

Honestly, I don’t get it. How people can mix up so many things about the advertising world. I love TV, radio, computers, and not to say my baby Xbox. Music, shows, political critics and social media played through these devices. The fact that a platform can put back together people you knew when you were younger. So long time ago! And you still can meet people you never remember you knew in the past. This is so fantastic!

Well, the mix up part I refer to, is that is so simple to me to describe some things in Portuguese, but they are not true in English. Maybe is just my brain going nuts.

At university level in Brazil, the bachelor in advertising kind of course is one that has the most number of people giving up during the course. They can not foreseen what is in the verge in front of them. When you complete it, seems like (to me) that the whole world split a channel. You are on a verge, and you just gained a new path. Difficult to retain the idea in English!

In Brazil is so spread out the idea of what a “publicitário” can make. But… in English, I am not so sure on how to explain. Please have a look online and let me know how you can help me describe such an amazing view of our world 😀
