After a long walk through the desert I finally found my promised land on the steep landscape of Serra da Estrela’s Mountain range. Unlikely as it may seem I’ve managed to find work in one of the inner districts of Portugal. Ovar will forever be my home but for the next six months Covilhã is where I’m living.
I could say I came for the view, the great food or the picturesque charm of a small college town caught between the mountains and plains of eastern Portugal. I could, and believe me, these things actually helped sway my decision, however, I owe this recent life event to a successful job interview at LabCom (Laboratory for Online Communication) where I’m currently working. I’m part of a project called Communicating science and publication cultures in the humanities. Long title, isn’t it?
I’ve been here for over a week and, for now, there isn’t much more to add about this project other than what’s already been published on its website.
Her Ideal, Your Ideal, My Ideal
Some of my facebook followers may already know, but I’ve recently started writing for a fashion magazine called Her Ideal. My first opinion article “First Impressions” was published on page 57 of this month’s edition. You can check it out right here or read it straight from the source on the magazine’s website.
New job, new personal project, and a bit of a writer’s block. I’m guessing this April will not go easy on me.
