And I've arrived to Pittsburgh.
The snow is everywhere, the cold as well but life is fresh as it hasn't been for a long while.
Why? This is the first time that I actually saw real snow inside a city.
Temperatures remain below zero celsius and I've took these free days to visit the city and saw all type of things from America that I had only seen on television.
Pittsburgh is a relatively small town when compared to others, but still sized enough to host the tallest buildings that I ever seen. And while writing this post I can only think: what a simple guy, never moved away from the village before, and in many aspects, it's true: living in small towns does carry some interesting advantages that I truly love.
It's good to be here. A good time to shape up my English skills and try to see all there is to see around Pitt.
Money also flies away from your pockets at an incredible speed, life is nowhere as affordable as I'd expect and simple things like lunch, dinner and coffee are pressing a tough toll on my savings.
But well. I'm still adjusting and thinking a lot about the things back in Portugal. My employment is still an headache to solve, the savings to endure the following months are also a worry and top all this with the constant pressure to think about your work at the MSE program.
Life is amazing, I seriously wouldn't imagine how it could change so much in less than 12 months and be here today.
