"Hey dude-Hey man,
Sorry for the delay. I realize I've been less than communicative- but I’m writing to you in between seminar classes from Brazil (where I've been eating beans for a few days & can't clap my ass fast enough to make it to the toilet 5x per day- it's buffet style). I've been thinking about you while over here... it's definitely not Barca or mykonos, but amazing nonetheless in an intellectual way.
Came here a few days ago and ever since I stepped foot onto this reformed plantation-turned-hotel, I’ve been swept up in a whirlwind of learning (I'm taking some NLP seminars and shit). I won’t give you all the unnecessary details, but I will say that [I'm] with the exact people of the exact industry of my future. In fact, if this were an education I were paying for, I would say I hit the Ivy League Jackpot. Holy shit- really different from reading books and shit and I'm so so into this. Very diff from [Argentina] as well, where I was just working, going out, and working more. Here there's no bs or politics, just lots of good energy and hugs and good conversations and churning out videos on the side.
How's your setup going man? Are the military moves/ court process turning out? Here in some ways, it's also like a job...I have class from 9 to 7 everyday, with a break for lunch, and then typically I work my private projects(building connections, videos, websites,etc) in between and after, punctuated with deep discussions with the leaders of my industry. Unreal access to big minds and uncharted growth. So worth the money. And since I didn’t really pay any to attend, only that much more valuable. You would have loved it.
Holy fuck-amazing- also, my Portuguese is coming along REALLY well, and things are just exactly where they need to be right now.
It would have been sick if you could have been here. I know you started a little NLP investigation, but this is the real fucking deal dude. Wow
PS- You'll be happy to know that we got our first fraudulent credit card process on that website I designed a few months ago the other day for 2K+... but I called them to thank them before we sent anything out and found out it was a hijacked cc num... fuckers.
Hope you're doing well dude
beso from brazil" - Eugene.
I'm really happy to hear from you finally :) I too, am sorry that we've been relatively out of touch lately. Moreover, I hope that there isn't any bad blood between us from that one episode and hissy-fit I threw the night we went out with Nick and Chetan. I know we've already spoken about it, just felt the need to throw that out there. In any case, I cannot express to you how happy I am to hear that Brasil seems to be everything you anticipated, and much more. Quite honestly, I take this as personal motivation to make my move down there sometime in the foreseeable future. Did you ever get to meet the German dude that gave you the scholarship to attend this event? Also, by the time you read this, I hope that your chronic diarrhea has decipitated and your stool is better :) And why the hell would you tell me that you've been thinking about me in the same sentence you wrote about taking a shit??? hahaha
Things in my neck of the woods are status quo for the most part, but definitely a collection of small yet noteworthy developments. One thing I know you would love to learn is that I've actually began teaching yoga this month. Honestly it was a very spontaneous opportunity that presented itself to me, but I gladly took to it head on. The reason I know that this would make you happy to know is because I owe having ever explored yoga to you. Remember how throughout college Edward and I made fun of you for doing it so often, and then I finally gave in to your invitations? Quite the pleasant surprise for sure, being the only 2 guys in an aerobics room full of sluts and sorostitutes stretching and queefing for an hour straight. Some things will never change. But anyways, yeah dude it's been fun...the times I have taught it, it's been full 1-hour sessions, and I'm teaching it to people that have never really experienced yoga, so it's a learning experience on both sides since I'm learning to teach it, and they're learning the art of it. It's very satisfying though when some of the people approach me and express their gratitude for not only teaching them something new, but for influencing their mentality and mood that they will carry for the remainder of their day (I teach it at 630AM.)
In regards to the Army, as we say in the ranks here, "here we go again, same old shit again." Different day, same old BS. Things are moving (if at all) at a very bureaucratic pace, which I expected, and so I don't really have an idea as to when some actual moves will happen. I've already written my statements, as well as received letters of references from people back home in the likes of old roommates, professors, and colleagues. My last steps are to sit down to with a shrink so they can attest that I'm not crazy or some horse shit like that, and then my final hearing...seems like it's eons away. Nevertheless, it hasn't stopped me from preparing myself for my move to your current hemisphere, and I too am delving into Português as much as I can. It's difficult to balance learning both German and Português simultaneously, but I have fun doing it nonetheless. One thing that I'm convinced will help me though is the fact that I think I might be going steady with Anna now, the girl I told you about. She's extremely smart, and speaks a collection of languages. It's been a pleasant emotional and romantic surprise dude, and I wish to tell you more about her and what we have over the phone when we get the chance...but in sum, I'm really happy right now.
In regards to travels, I'm going to England next month to visit Jackie for a weekend, and the I'll be traveling to Bucharest in April for one of the Sensation concerts that's taking place there on the 21st. HOLY FUCK! I'm so stoked for that!
So anway, how's the vagina down there? And I'm not referring to yours ;-) I really would like it if we arranged a tiime to catch up through skype, so get at me girl...miss you tons bro and I hope the positivity, your experiences, and explorations down in Brasil multiply significantly. Looking forward to hearing more about it.
