What I was not born to do is sing. But I still do it. Loudly. It's pretty bad.
This, of course, doesn't mean I'm not serious. I'm actually quite shy at first.
I love people. People I've known forever and people I'll meet tomorrow. Old people and young people. I spend a lot of time with people older than me. Related to this, family is key. I don't define family by blood, but by the bond we share. Mostly, this has made my family a lot bigger.
I love languages. I am doing my Ph.D in Portuguese and Brazilian Studies. I am Portuguese-- though I never went to Portugal growing up, I now can't go much time without feeling restless and needing to be back there-- my other home(s). I am in love with Lisbon, but my Azorean soul longs for my islands whenever I am away.
