The pleasure of being alone

I love company, at some moments of my life I wish I could have some people with me but I can’t, for different reasons. But it doesn’t take the bright of a lonely moment. It’s amazing being alone! I love being at my own, listening only the sound of my soul, enjoying the moment by myself. It’s wonderful. It’s not selfish or antisocialism, it’s just a need that everyone has, even if you didn’t realize it yet. Continue reading →

Why you can’t see me?

I use my bike as a means of transport, not just for fun. I go to work by bike almost everyday. Of course sometimes it’s difficult to use the bike, like when it’s too hot or when it’s raining, so I have to use some alternative transport. I’m grateful that lately I can choose car as an alternative transport (mine, Uber or Taxi), because the public transport is really bad where I live. Yes cars are my alternative transport, even though I use it frequently, because sometimes it helps me better, like when the ride is too long, or the weather doesn’t help, or when I have to carry people or things with me etc. Continue reading →

Understanding IoT

At the end of the 80s, computing area started growing very fast. The internet was born and the computers started to become faster and smaller. We also started to experiment automatic things on our daily lives, like a gate that opens by pushing a button, a television that can be controlled by distance, curtains that open or close just by clicking, lights that turn itself on as the sun goes down. It was an age of automation, which started in the industry, helping large scale production then, slowly, came to our houses. Continue reading →

Another project attempt

Too lazy to read this post? You can listen to my first attempt at a recorded article and let me know if I did well.

In 2015, I made some promises, and one of them was become fluent in English. Well, almost 25% of the year has passed, and I’m trying to acomplish ever goal I established. The goals I’m having some progress is: write at least 2 articles in English; be fluent in English; retake my computer studies. I’m writing some articles in English (this is one of them), I’m trying to improve my English, and I’ll talk about it in this article and I’m trying to retake my technical studies by watching some classes online. In this article I’ll talk about how I’m improving my English. Continue reading →

Eu não ajudo em casa

Sou casado há 3 anos – meu 3º aniversário de casamento é dia 23/03/2016 – e nunca ajudei minha esposa nas tarefas de casa. Sabe porque? Porque as tarefas de casa não são obrigação dela ! Simples assim. Nós dois trabalhamos fora e passamos a mesma quantidade de tempo dentro da nossa casa. Usamos a casa de maneira igual, isso nos torna igualmente responsáveis pelas tarefas domésticas.

Eu odeio rótulos!

A principal característica que noto em mim que cresceu e cresce nos últimos anos é o desprendimento dos rótulos que a sociedade cria. A olho nu você pode pensar exatamente o contrário, mas te falo, ninguém é único ao ponto de não se encaixar em grupo nenhum (o meme diferentona externaliza exatamente isso) mas todo indivíduo é único ao ponto de não ser exatamente igual ao restante do grupo no qual se encaixa. Eu sou o cara que tem um pouquinho da maioria dos rótulos mas se sente desconfortável quando rotulado. Continue reading →

My 2015 Retrospective and desires for 2016

Since December 2013, my wife and I add our desire list and New Year’s Promises for the upcoming year in a spreadsheet. And doing this we achieved 90% of the desires for 2014 and 60% for 2015, and we also took a note about the things that happened without planning (that’s a long list too \o/ ). It was very grateful to see the amount of things we’ve done in a year, things that we couldn’t see because people nowadays almost never pay attention in their daily lives. Continue reading →

A modern version of a popular story about focus

When I was a kid, I used to pick a bit of steel sponge, and link the two ends of one or two batteries. The effect was instantaneously cool: the steel sponge burns suddenly. I loved to play with it, because it seemed magical. I’ll not enter in the chemical fact, just the magical one: it’s a micro firework that we can perform in our bedroom. Another pyrotechnics that I used to play with, was to burn plastic. It was a real fire and when the plastic dripped, generally the fire continued. From that one, I carry a few little scars in my hands. Continue reading →
