Hi there! My name is Pablo, and I’m a 38 years old Brazilian living in Brisbane, Australia. I’ve had many blogs before, but I decided to start this one to document this important chapter in my life.
Last Thursday, June 11th 2020 I got granted permanent residency in Australia, after living here for five and a half years. Now that I’m officially a resident in this fantastic country I have nothing in my mind other than doing the most with this fantastic opportunity life is giving me. Australia is a country of immense opportunities and I consider myself extremely lucky to have the chance to live here.
Moving forward from the stress of securing residency I want to get back to studying formally, so I can give back to Australia and contribute to the world while collecting friends and having a fantastic time.
I have a fun and rewarding job as a dance teacher but as much as I love my job I don’t see myself doing in the long run (which is no secret to my bosses). My job as a dance teacher feeds many of core needs: community, connection, learning, physicality. And of course, it also pays the bills.
I want to post every single day. I’ve always loved writing, but after listening to an interview with writer Seth Godin I was convinced I had to introduce this habit in my daily routine. I’ll explain the reasons later as I don’t want this intro post to be too long, but the most important thing I want to achieve from it is to have a solid metrics of discipline. Everything I want to achieve in life requires discipline and posting here will help me develop and document it.
I honestly don’t expect anyone to read it in the beginning, but I think there will be valuable material in this space throughout the years. This is a lifelong project, and I plan to be posting every day till the day I die.
So let’s get started! It’s a pleasant Monday, end of the afternoon (best time of the day in my opinion) and I’m currently sitting at the office at the dance studio where I work. I’ll post again tonight with some of my visions for the future.
See you then!!
