This is the place where I share my stories, experiences, discoveries, and joyful pleasures with you as I make my rambling course to enlightenment. I have many interests, including books, music, movies, board games, science, technology, roller coasters, football (the round ball one) especially Flamengo and BRASIL, basketball (#HeatNATION), and more. I also try to stay current about things going on in the world.
