This week was hectic. I moved into a new room in a an absolutely delightful neighborhood, spent time with new friends exploring the city and keeping myself busy with all of this and school helped me to overcome last weeks trauma. This week I also realized that there are some places, and some people in our lives, that work as gravitational fields. We are heading (back) towards them no matter how conflicted we may feel about it. And it is okay. It is probably that thing they call destiny.

I had an incident this week that made me understand that New York is not a city for beginners. I made some naive mistakes in trusting people that I should not have trusted, and ended up trying to resolve the case by myself, which did not turn the situation to my favor. I will not get into the details, but I can tell you that a substantial sum of money was lost because of my stupidity. I learned a very valuable lesson about myself and that people not always are as upright and okay as they seem.
I also learned how much it means to have just a couple of good friends around, and in the end - the first week turned out good because of that.

I have really been waiting long with telling you guys that I signed up for Shillington School of Graphics Design some months ago. I wanted to tell you when everything was certain. It's a three month intensive program, but only after two days I already feel like I can design a little.

It's not a special day at all. I just happen to be in a good mood when running errands for my mom.

Have you ever looked back at photos you took a long while ago and wondered why they didn't strike you as nice back then? I realized lately that I have this tendency to be overly critical to the pictures I take. But after months I can "rediscover" my old shots and actually find them appealing again.
I talked with a friend in Lisbon the other day. I realized how badly I missed that wonderful city and remembered how good I felt when being there.

And when the sun shone through the heavy clouds, that is when it really started to feel like spring again .
