Tentando relembrar...

Tanta coisa aconteceu desde o meu ultimo post... e as coisas vao acontecendo, acontecendo e de repente eh tanta coisa que a gente se perde e eh dificil voltar e escrever. Mas eu nao quero que todas as coisas caiam no esquecimento, por isso vou tentar voltar por aqui.

Desde o ano passado (por volta de Novembro) eu e o Dave ja tinhamos decidido que a distancia nao era a nossa amiga, era saudade demais... entao formamos um plano. Eu iria completar o semestre seguinte em New Jersey, nos iriamos pro Brasil juntos no meio do ano e quando voltassemos iriamos morar juntos. Foi um peso enorme tirado dos nossos ombros e passamos a contar os dias para o nosso great next move.

Era fora de questao ele ir se mudar pra New Jersey, o trabalho dele era em Massachusetts e eu nunca gostei de NJ anyway, New England aqui vou eu!

Desde Janeiro comecamos a procurar um lugar que fosse perto do trabalho dele e perto do meu novo college. Era muito bom sair pra procurar mas algumas vezes estressante e decepcionante. Quando gostavamos no lugar o preco era salgado ou nao havia nenhum apartamento livre... cheguei a achar que nunca iriamos encontrar o nosso cantinho ate que por volta de Maio nos encontramos, assinamos o lease e teriamos o nosso apartamento no fim de Julho.

Quando o meu semestre acabou eu fui contar pra minha host family que eu iria passar o verao com eles em Cape Cod mas depois que eu fosse pro Brasil eu iria ficar por Massachusetts mesmo... Fiquei morrendo de medo mas no fundo eles ja sabiam, disseram que estavam felizes por mim e so me fizeram prometer que eu continuaria estudando "Se voce nao continuasse eu nao ia deixar voce ir" disse o Chris.

Entao passamos a comprar nossas coisas pro apartamento, cada fim de semana uma coisa diferente, pratos, copos, talheres, tanta coisa! E foi uma delicia porque ele se importa, ele participava de cada decisao. Aos pouquinhos nosso lugarzinho ia ter a nossa cara.

No fim de julho ele pegou as chaves e passamos a primeira noite aqui. Sem cama, sem moveis, sem TV, nada. So nos e um colchao de ar. Ben & Jerry's e Lucky Charms.

Nossa viagem pro Brasil estava marcada pra Agosto. Iriamos em semanas diferentes mas voltariamos juntos. Antes de eu ir fizemos a mudanca. O dia finalmente tinha chegado. Depois de um inverno, primavera e mais da metade do verao aquele dia tinha chegado. O dia que comecariamos nossas vidas juntos.

So much happened since my last post... and the things start happening e suddenly there is so much to say that we fall behind. Because I don't want to forget what happened I'm gonna try to come back here.

Since last year (around November) me and Dave had already decided the distance wasn't our friend, we missed each other too much, every day... So we made a plan. I would finish the next semester in New Jersey, we would go to Brasil in August and when we got back we would move in together. Was a huge relief e we started to count the days to our great next move.

It was out of question to move to New Jersey. His job was in Massachusetts and I have never liked New Jersey anyway... New England, here I go!

Since January we start to look for a place that was near his job and my new college. It was so good to go out and look for places but sometimes it was really stressing and disappointing. When we liked the place or it was to expensive or there was no apartments available... I started thinking we would never find our place but around May we found it, we signed the lease e we could move in at the end of July.

When my semester ended I went to talk with my hosts that I would spent the summer on the Cape with them but after going to Brasil I wold stay in MA... I was so scared but they already knew that would happened and at the end were very happy for me, they would be there for anything I needed and made me promise I would still go to school "If you stopped studying I wouldn't' let you go" Chris said.

So we started buying the things to our place, each weekend something new, plates, cups, silverware, so much stuff! And it was so good because he cares about everything, he was always with me helping decide. Little by little our place would have our touch.

The end of July he got our keys e we spent our first night there with no furniture, just us an air mattress. Ben & Jerry's and Lucky Charms.
Our trip to Brasil was going to be in August. We went different days but came back together. Before I went we moved our stuff. The day had finally arrived. After a very cold winter, a spring, and more than half of the summer the day had arrived. The day that we would start our lives together.
