“Stay hungry, stay foolish”

Flá pointed me out to this speech by Steve Jobs, encouraging Stanford’s commencement class of 2005 to follow their dreams and not anybody else’s. I strongly believe in that and often tell it to my students, who are often lost and confused looking for the “right” career in which to succeed. I always tell them that you can’t succeed if you don’t have your heart in what you do. As Jobs says in the video below,   “your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.(…) Have the courage to follow your own heart and intuition.” Somehow things will workout if you do.

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.
