About Me

[ Warning!!! ]
Hey guys! My profile is a little bit outdated :P I apologize for that :( Well, I am currently living in Natal, the capital of Rio Grande do Norte, in the northeast of Brazil. At the moment, I am pursuing a PhD in Physics, more specifically in Quantum Optics. Until I find the time to update my profile properly, I believe the information below regarding my hobbies, way of being, perfectly reflects what I am :) In case you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

CURRENT MISSION

Keep smiling and spread the happiness around the globe :)

ABOUT ME

I'm a cool guy that's what my friends say about me! I'm someone really distracted and things are always fine to me ! Life is too short for keep regretting the mistakes we've made so I'd much rather be in peace with life. My philosophy is to live every moment of my life intensely :)
I study physics but don't worry I'm not a strange guy :)By contrast I'm a friendly, laid back person and I love to meeting new people. I also love travelling the world, learn new languages and do crazy things.

I am currently living in Barcelona. I am a visiting master student at a Physics Institute located in Castelldefels.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

First time I was in Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro. It was awesomeee I love Rio de Janeiro.

My social internship to Barranquilla, Colombia I lived the time of my life so far. I met amazing people there and I could become a better person after have faced the poverty and receive the love of children. It was definitely something that is priceless and I would like to live again.

First I saw snow in my life: It happened in Waldshut-Tiegen, in the south of Germany and I didn't like it so much because I thought I would lose my fingers hehe

The crossing of Serra de Tramuntana : It was crazy, intense and AWESOME! It was hard as well because it is not easy standing almost five days climbing up and down mountains, tons of rain and sun. I had a great time during this crossing, I got more cultured about mallorca culture and its history thanks to my friends. But I got amazed, really amazed with such beauty that only Mallorca Island has. I love this island and I wished I could never go away from here.

My first time in Belgium. At first, I've been to Gent which is an university city in the Flemish Belgium. That time I had the opportunity of meeting Margot again after almost a month that she and her friend Liza have stayed in my flat in Mallorca.
She borrowed her bike to me and I went sightseeing the city. It may sound silly but for me that was like a dream that finally came true. Since I was a little boy I always dreamt riding a bicycle in Belgium or Nederlands and it finally happened. Thanks a lot Margot :) That was fucking awesome :D
