How I met Cirque du Soleil

Alegria literally means joy in Portuguese. That’s what Cirque du Soleil brought to my life. The Varekai show is like diving into a fantasy world.

I don’t recall the first time I saw a video of a Cirque du Soleil show, it was either on national TV during Christmas or during a plane flight. I do know it was Alegria and it was love at first sight.

Whatโ€™s the right time to create a startup?

Nowadays you hear about young (under 20) entrepreneurs. Those are the exceptions, the real average age of tech startup founders is 39. Don’t rush it, it’s not about the age but about the timing.

I finished college, now what?

While you’re on school you see the trail, you just have to walk it. Choosing college was your first decision. But when you finish it the trail stops. Now it’s up to you.

Why I started blogging… again

Blogging1-1024x768

Why now?

I’m not the talkative type, so I have to spill out my ideas, thoughts, and opinions in some other way – writing. And trust me, I think way too much, a pensieve would come in handy. Writing forces me to structure my ideas and also works as an unburden activity. It’s also way to procrastinate the writing of my fantasy novel!

The idea to resume blogging came on September, right when Adam Pash from Lifehacker had the same idea. (That’s another thing, blogging is a great way to network.) I wanted to start my blog on 11/12/2013, since it was a funny date and my website was originally created on 07/08/2009. Sadly, I couldn’t have a blog at that time. But now I can ๐Ÿ˜‰

When is the next post?

One post per week, every Monday. That way you have a reason not to hate Mondays. Although I’m Portuguese I’ll post in English. That way I reach a broader audience and I practice my English. Only very specific topics will in Portuguese.

About what?

I will mainly talk about technology, photography, books, and life (and sometimes games). These are my hobbies, my passions. This blog will let you know more about me. Why would I care?, you may ask. Maybe my dilemmas are yours too, and maybe you’ll stumble over the same problems I did. I’ll share my experiences so you can avoid my mistakes and leverage on my successes.

Thanks, how can I help you back?

I simply ask you to read and share my posts. In fact, you’re already helping: I partnered with a Portuguese startup and while you’re reading this you’re donating a tiny amount of your computer’s idle processing power to scientists worldwide. I help you, you help the world, and CrowdProcess helps me. It’s a win-win-win!
