  • Growing up is difficult, and if you truly live, you know how hard it is.
    We never stop growing (at least not our ears and nose), and the result that the more I liked this continuity is to have left home.

    I thought I was prepared, after all, I have a job, study, trial and have friends.
    After all, that's what they said. That is all we need to have sucess.

    But, nobody told me that I need know how to cook WELL to feel satisfied.
    Nobody told me, that doesn't make the bed will be the least of my problems.
    Nobody said it is hard to pay 50 reais in electricity bills - something that once seemed so little!
    Nobody told me that health insurance is expensive, that not everyone wishes us well., and that dreaming is the most beautiful thing that happens to us.
    That friends are the bridge, and family is the pier.
    That, sometimes, it hurts.

    Eventually, nobody said it was easy.
