Carnival at Azores!

Back from Azores again!

I’ve been in Azores again, for almost one full month. One of great aspects of my new job is that I can work anywhere, anytime. Just grabbed my laptop, got a mobile internet connection, and hit the road, or in this case, the airplane!

Worked during the day, and each night had some fun with friends.

Apart from meeting new people, I had the chance to talk to people I already knew, and get to know them better. Felt just like home, surrounded by friends.

Carnival was particularly funny!

Some nights we would go to the cinema, some nights just hanging around the usual bar with friends, having some drinks and playing snooker! I had a great time.

Last weekend there, was my sister-in-law birthday… and what a blast! Dinner, followed by a few hours in a nice bar I didn’t knew, called “Escape Livre”, which has lots of space, live music, and some snooker tables. Great place. A big kiss to her, for bearing with me during all those days, without ever losing her patience. You’re the best sister-in-law I could ask for!

But because life isn’t only fun and parties, let’s talk about work… which can also be fun!

Almost 2 months working full time as a game programmer, and I’m having a great time. I’m always learning something new.

Sometimes I feel I should take a few hours a day to learn new things in a relaxed way, instead of trying to apply things I’ve just learned to the tasks at hand. I guess it’s part of the business.

Anyway, I’m thinking in dedicating some free time to some of my projects. I guess that’s the best way to learn new things in a relaxed way.

Overall, I’m really happy with the job. I can work anywhere, when I feel productive, and when that happens I can easily work 12-13 hours a day or so. But as a rule, I try to work 8-9 hours a day, and use the rest of the day for myself, to hang out with friends, to relax, to read.

I’m really committing myself to this job, so the best thing I can do to keep my motivation levels high is to avoid constant overworking.
