This blog is kind of a thing that I’m trying out now .

I am a girl or a young woman or whatever it is acceptable to call oneself at the age of 28. I am also a sociologist and a Master of Science in Urban Studies. I like new art and old music. And cats. And travelling. And wine. I care a lot about a lot of things. I am passionate and opinionated. I have always been drawn to politics, moral dilemmas and issues of social justice. Needless to say I come from a very political family. I love cities and the strange yet creativity-inducing loneliness you feel in them, especially if you didn’t grow up in the city where you live.

I was born in Brazil and I moved to the Netherlands as a child. I moved back to Brazil for two years in my teens and then back to the Netherlands again. I have lived temporarily in São Paulo, Manila, Washington DC and, most recently, New York City.

If I’m very honest, this blog is probably about underdeveloped thoughts. Thoughts that I need to get out into the world before I lose them.

I have never really started anything like this before and I hope I can keep it interesting and somewhat coherent but please feel free to help me improve this experiment with your feedback. Oh and please forgive my occasional use of profanity but I have always felt swearwords are a pretty honest form of expression and I am not fully convinced that anyone should be offended by them.

  1. I’m also 26, I was also born in Brazil but moved to Europe when I was very young. How odd!
