Não há como entender o clima daqui mesmo! Continue reading »
I am going to have to write this quickly because I am really busy! My flatmate and I are organising a Eurovision party and people will be arriving any minute. Check out wikipedia if you don’t know what that is. Continue reading »
It’s an honor to be writing to all of you. I can’t believe I’ve been picked so early on!
I’ve been trying to figure out what to write about, and believe me… it’s tough. Don’t worry, I’ll be brief.

I love, with every ounce of my soul, my wife and my kids.
May God watch over them always.
I get my strength from my family, my faith, and my friends.
Nothing is more important to me than this.
Thanks for reading.
