Never stop running

I am a runner ...

Since I was 5 years old, my father took me to the athleticism trainings. I loved it ! And I practiced this sport, with some interruptions, until I was 18.

Now all that I´m doing is jogging. I can´t give up running, where ever I might be.

After I arrived in Braga, one of the first things that I did, was to find a good and nice path to run. And I found it. It´s the way to Bom Jesus. A nice road, on which after 10 minutes of plain running, you start going up hill.

After I first walked until Bom Jesus, I said to myself that till the end of my traineeship I will reach the place, running. And every time I went for my jogging, I went a little bit more far than the last place I stoped the previous time.

Today I did it ! The objective was accomplished. I put my foot on the stairs of Bom Jesus ! Just 3 days before my traineeship ends.

I am proud of myself !!!

And now? What will be the next point to reach?

Kitesurfing & Rafting

Two water sports, so different, but connected through the same thing ... water ...

Great experiences, such an intense feelings, so much adrenaline ... another 2 firsts, here in Portugal, I never dreamt of this ...

Kitesurfing ... the power of water and air combined ... flying above the water ... feeling the force of the air in my hands ...

I did it !!! I flew !!! I rocked !!!

Rafting ... seen only in American movies ... the calm and the torrent of water coming together ... jumping from 3,5 m height ... overcome the fear ... feel the excitement !

Row! Row! Row!

Primavera Business Software Solutions

August is here ...

Today I had a meeting with the Human Resources Director. Even if the meeting was planned for 5 o´clock in the afternoon, she appeared at my desk, 20 minutes earlier, and she said she wants to talk to me. So we went in the meeting room, and she said we must discuss about my future in the company, and that Primavera has an offer for me :

... to stay another 6 more months in the company, to work directly with the vice president of Primavera, to move from one department to another, to identify KPI´s for how Primavera can enter on more international markets ...

I said YES, and I got out from the meeting speechless, a little bit scared but very happy, and willing to take this challenge and do my best.

So ... I´m going on with Primavera for the next 6 moths, at least ... afterwards ... who knows
