Yeah, I am from Natal. And presently living in Natal itself.
I rather not say my line of work, suffice is to say that my background is one
in wich I worked wathever menial jobs appeared. Today I live more comfortable
(at least I can afford a roof under my head, LOL).
But, I can assure a thing, I have some experience in life what counts a little.
I have traveled this country from north to south and on top of it, I read a lot. Internet has been an asset, I got hooked to it since day one. When I bought my first computer in 2003. This one, for that matter.
So, going to chats (I am from the old times of AOL in Brazil) I have seen plenty of people making misjudgements by making such questions such as job, age, sex, skin color -yes, a guy from Parana insulted a girl, indirectly ´cause his color was black. He said that would not make friends with her because she declared being black, the entire room got furious, except his girlfriend...of course.
The other time, I said that I was a garbage collector. The guy, at the time said 'you must be kidding!'. What´s the matter with it? I took an English course and my class in the very beggining had bank´s clerks, a biologist, several guys that worked in a multinational company, me and a janitor.
Guess what? the janitor was the guy that make his mark, surprised me the most. He do were there to learn English, and he meant business; when time went by the biologist gave up, the clerks were so so; several others chickened out and the janitor never gave up. Dogged out all possible drawbacks and merited his certificate.
Long ago I lost contact, but it served me as a larger than life experience.
On the other hand, I can say that I am low profile guy that works a lot, and a curious one. I like culture, travel, I like learning every and all time. Every waking hour.
What I don´t like is studying for obligation, but just now I have to; for I have an exam this week (the next perhaps I have to travel again). It´s life.
