My experience with Coffee - Part 1

It's pretty common parents to offer different foods to their children. Sometimes it's their intention that the young one start eating these food; for me it wasn't different.

Though, I didn't like coffee at all, I hated. The bitter-taste was awful and I felt sick for short period of time. Thanks mom and dad! My great experience with coffee began in university. I had classes in varying periods of the day, so it was more practical stay the entire day at the college than go back home. As an academic, I didn't have enough money to spend in good food.. so soda or coffee was the cheap way to stay wake up the entire day to study, and coffee was the cheaper than soda and more healthy. If I enjoyed bitter-taste or not it didn't matter for me that time, I had to drink coffee if I want to stay awake and study.

As you can see, my first and second experience weren't great at all. But, as I written, my great experience with coffee began in university. It was a fighting game event (in my university), and a bunch of internet friends came to my city to participate in the tournaments. A friend of mine, who prepares his coffee in a "barista way", brought special coffee from his city. That time I was a little skeptical about his coffee, but I'm very open minded to food and gastronomy and I gave it a try.

It was simply amazing!! It was bitter-taste, but in a good way! I still remember the cocoa after-taste and how I started loving coffee after that cup. With a totally different view about coffee, my journey with special coffee begins.

My 2018 Book List

In December of 2016 I bought an Amazon Kindle. It was great because I could read a bunch of books (some heavy ones) without have to carry them. However, in 2017 I read some books by random choice. I didn't have any goal on mind, I was just picking some books by friends recommendations and read them.
This year I choose some books with a goal in mind!

Sapiens - Part 2

When I was younger I used to eat a lot of candy in my friends' birthday parties. Sometimes I got sick for eating too much sugar, but for me it was worth. Nowadays I enjoy a piece of pie or a chocolate bar as my "candy of the week". However, there's a lot of people who still eat a lot of candy or sweet food. You probably know a few of them, right? Do you know why we eat sweet food like it was our last meal?

This unhealthy habit of eating too much candy is already socially accept among us; obesity cases has also been increasing rapidly throughout the world. You probably already have watched those cake videos with a lot of chocolate and calories, and people praising it like it was an eatable food. Well, if we look to the past, the far past when our ancestors were hunter-gatherers, we can understand a bit of this situation.

Sorry, I'm too hyped with this game.
A long fucking time ago, about 30 thousand years, our ancestors, that lived in the savannas and forests, only …

My method to "study" anything

I'm not the kind of person that like to sit and have a study session. I know that sometimes you cannot avoid this, but I always try to avoid.

During university I had develop something like a method to learn a new code language, framework, lib, anything that you can find on Youtube. And after entering the world of fighting games, I improved this method.

The beginning of the path to learn and understand fighting games is: Learn and master the basics/fundamentals. Someday I'll write about the complexity and what makes fighting games great, but today we'll continue only with this statement.
How do I use this method? If you're learning a new language and don't know NOTHING about, you should start your study session watching videos with basic phrases. A "How to introduce yourself in X" it's a great video to start. Pick some basic grammar videos/texts to understand, at least, how a phrase is formed. After this, you should go back and re watch the same videos …
