Random from Underappreciated

One year

Mon Dec 19, 2016, 3:52 PM
I've been in Brazil for a full year today and plan to stay.

I planned to live here for one year, but it's exactly as my brother predicted: once I've lived here, I don't want to leave.

I've had to build up quite a new life here. It's not always been easy, despite coming with just about every privilege that exists. I can't imagine how hard it must be without my unfair advantages. In many ways, being an immigrant sucks.

Having lived here for one year it's hard to imagine a nicer city for me than Florianópolis. Okay, safety needs to be better, traffic and roads needs to be better, I miss cycling everywhere. I miss being able to understand everyone; my portuguese is okay now, but the locals talk fast.

But nature is always close, I have good friends here and better social circles than at home, the weather and the people are nicer, warmer. I'm more confident.

I've worked from home most of this year (as a remote full-stack javascript developer). Now, the startup I worked for is out of money. It's summer here, so I'm taking a holiday as I had planned to do anyway. I'll go look for work again after that. It'll be fine. Tips are welcome. My professional blog is at javascriptdebugging.com.

In January, my parents will come visit me! I'm excited. I haven't seen them since last year. I'll show them around my new city and my new life. I'll hike trails and lie on the beach with them.

Here's to another beautiful year in my new town!

How are you doing?

It figures I'd get the "not allowed to give any more llamas" glitch on YOUR page, instead of it just allowing me to send, agree, and close.
