Well, well, well...

It's been a looooooooong time since I last posted here (it was May, wasn't it?). God, free time for myself has become a luxury and it's one of the things that made me sad about living and working at Brasília – it’s seems that all my time is dedicated to work, no matter if I’m at office or at home. Yeah, it's official: I'm one of those people who dream about being at office and wake up thinking about tasks that will have to be done that day at office...

There are no excuses for it, I should have tried harder to keep in touch with all of you, but again many things happened this year. Let's see: one of my bosses, in fact a very good friend, commited suicide at July 6th, and it started a series of events that included me being given his cubicle, part of his tasks and part of his salary. It also included several business trips, which were nice sometimes, thank God!

And then everybody at office had to deal with his death and also with the news that the other manager was going to leave us, he was going to move to another state with his family… so his tasks were also divided among all of us. Needless to say I’ve been tired most part of time, and although I try hard not to stay at office after 6 p.m. (or before 9 a.m.) and not to bring projects to work at home, it became my reality in a blink.

The cherry of the cake was my home PC being killed by a nasty bug that destroyed its HD…

The good news: despite of everything I managed to have my entire month vacation, traveled with parents to Niterói and it was such a wonderful time that we decided to move back to there as soon as possible… they even bought a new apartment there, that’s where we’re going to live as soon as possible!!!

I know, too many news, I'll try to talk about each of them...

Hi, Adriana! I completely understand your absence; life really can get in the way when you're working to support yourself, managing a household, paying bills, dealing with aging parents, etc., etc. I'm still trying to find some time to get the rest of my Scotland travel posts done (the trip was in July). Ah, well, we just do the best we can.

That's sad news about your boss, and even worse that he was a friend instead of just your superior at the office. It's always a shock to lose someone suddenly, without any warning, and it's especially hard when it's suicide, as opposed to something like a traffic accident.

I don't expect to get a post done tomorrow, so let me just take a moment now to wish you a very happy New Year!

I still miss him a lot, in fact all of us miss him a lot. Such a brilliant young man and none of us notice how depressed he really was... we'll be missed forever.
