Oh, Troy!

DSC_0036

Há um mês atrás me mudei para Troy, uma pequena cidade no estado de Nova Yorque, nos Estados Unidos da América. Vim para terminar meu doutorado na universidade aqui e bom, já se foram um mês dos sete que ficarei aqui!

Troy é uma cidadezinha pacata. Gostei muito daqui, apesar de alguns locais não gostarem muito…achei tudo muito diferente do Brasil, obviamente! A arquitetura principalmente! E o jeito de viver dos americanos, muito diferente do nosso também. O verão está chegando e a cidade está começando a se encher de vida e as pessoas estão bem receptivas! Acho que o inverno por ser muito rigoroso, faz com que as pessoas realmente aproveitem e saiam de suas casas quando o sol esquenta! E Troy tem um tempo muito louco. Um dia faz 10C e no outro 30C! Mas, estou adorando isso aqui e começando a me adaptar muito bem ao estilo de vida deles. Tudo muito prático, tudo muito simples e de fácil acesso. Mesmo numa cidade do interior como aqui! E por mais que a saudade esteja começando a bater (as comidinhas e saudade da familia) não estou com vontade nenhuma de ir embora!

Segue algumas fotos que eu tirei há alguns dias…do centro da cidade.

One month already that I have been here! One month from the 8 I will be here. While it seemed to rush, sometimes I think it went really slow! I want it to be slow. I want to enjoy it as much as I can. So far, I am enjoying it here. Everything so different from Brazil. The architecture and the lifestyle. The practical life, the pretty gardens and the clean streets. Of course I have been missing some brazilian stuffs (the food and the family), but that is part of the process, right? I am here to learn and to live (almost) like an american and bring in with me what is worth! I am loving it so far and I am sure I will love it much more. (Especially when I be confident about my english listening part 😉 ) So, I will promise to share some picture while I am here and make it like a diary or something like that!

Troy, you have been lovely so far.

The one with the university

Ontem levei a camera ao trabalho e dei uma volta ao campus. O dia estava nublado mas quente. Para quem não sabe, estou fazendo meu doutorado na Unesp, em Bauru. É um campus muito bonito e grande, eu particularmente o considero assim. Rodeado por uma mata de preservação, temos alguns animais que vivem ali, como micos, cachorros, gatos, galinhas e outros tipos de aves.  Eu fotografei alguns dos detalhes que encontrei, somente para deixar para a posteridade. Minha vida tem capítulos que marcam a minha história e vir para essa cidade e universidade é uma delas.

Yesterday I took my camera with me to my work. I had a walk around the campus and took a lot of pictures. For those who are not brazilians, I will give a short explain about how it is here in Brazil. I am a post-graduate student. I make my phD in biochemistry here in this university, that is called São Paulo State University – UNESP. Here in Brazil, the states or federals university are the best. Free costs to study and usually, the best teachers and best resourches for reseachers. I graduated in a particular university and for me, see this huge campus and how this universe works, is kinda awesome. So, this university has several campus, in several cities of the state. and possibly is one of the biggest universities of the country. Here in my city, we have engineering, architeture, radio, journalism, arts, design, biology, chesmitry, physics and other courses. Is a huge campus. It is located between a preserved forest, so is surrounded by a big amount of trees and flowers. Birds, dogs, cats. I am amazed by the universities, cause they are always so huge and tend to give us a feeling of importance. Is a different universe, is where you come in naiive and leave a totally different person. Where you can make your best friends and have the best moments of your lives.
I took a lot of pictures and I will show a few!

Time goes by

1 year! phew! It was fast if I look back. I moved to here 1 year ago today and my life had changed. A lot.  I am living alone in a big different city and far from family and friends. It was different. It was good.

I learned about myself, I let go old pains and bad patterns of behaviors. I knew some new people.

I lost weight, I started to study photography, I lost my silly fear of eating alone in restaurants, I learned how to be on my own and found out that I am beautiful person. And two weeks ago, I adopted a baby cat and now, we are best friends. ( still figuring out some stuffs but we are doing good.)

A few photos of this past year.
