I’m coming home

I’m coming home
I’m coming home
tell the world I’m coming home
let the rain, wash away, all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits, and they’ve forgiven my mistakes

Less than a month left from the biggest adventure of my life.
Which started even before leaving Recife. Which started even before I was sure I would be moving to the other side of the globe.
All the pains and mistakes were washed away. I’m coming home new and clean. I’m coming home to start all over again.
And let the rest of my life beggin.
The past year was one clarifying experience. I could open my eyes and mature my thoughts about so many things in my life.
I’m not trying to sound cliche about anything.. but it is true that for the first time I was on my own and I had to take care of myself.
I lived a whole life in a year.

7 months, 10 countries, 25 cities, 1 marriage, 1 bridesmaid, 1 baby, 3 new homes, an internship, 3 jobs, breakups, goodbyes, tears, smiles, a life, a double life, a triple life.

In this time I found home in the people that I didn’t expect.. I found shelter in the arms I couldn’t hold.
I gave myself to freedom. I locked myself out of fear. I was rescued, I was let down, I was revived.
I felt pain, I was homesick, I felt happy, I found a new home. I had my safe port.

I wish it would last longer but I made it come to a sooner end.
Now.. tell the world I’m coming home.
It’s all good now.

The biggest adventure of Isabella Alliz’s life is coming to an end… or maybe it will just begin

2010 down. 2011 to go.

Just to state.. I’m alive.

Late 2010’s and early 2011’s has been times of big decisions. Things that will definetly affect my future life.

I had to think carefully about things.. make wise decisions..

I was afraid it would ruin my plans for this year but I am more than happy to say that I am about to fulfill one more of my travel dreams.

I’m moving on missing a piece of me but aware of my wise choices.

College is over! I’m graduated with the highest rate on my final project. In the end, all my hard work has worthed. 10 points out of 10. Perfect score! I had just the greatest thing to make my mostly admired coordinator, mentor and orientator proud of me. I owe her for motivating me to go this far. I will miss college. Studying was never so pleasant. Making teachers proud was never so rewarding. Spending time with those friends was never so fun.

2010 was full of ups and downs.

It started unusually.. Vista Way of life! House of Blues on Sundays, Mojito’s on Mondays, Buffalo’s on Wednesdays, Roxie on Thursdays, Bliss on Saturdays and working in Disney’s Animal Kingdom with 15 awsome brazilian coworkers and some foreigners. Living in an international housing with people from all around the world. Sharing an apartment with 5 precious girls. Getting to travel around Florida and NYC with plans made up on the very last minute! Having it as an experience of a lifetime.

I was abroad until carnival… but, as we say, the year only begings after carnival! So I didn’t really miss out.

As it’s been a long time since I last took any sort of pictures of myself, I’m posting a few from late october, last time I had a trip with my former classmates. @ Vale do Catimbau.
