I started my new job in Nottingham today!
I am an architect. I studied architecture both for my Bachelor and for my Masters.
I move back to the Old Continent, to the United Kingdom, and I am now working in Nottingham and soon I'll have a new apartment here in town, near the Castle.
I know the city a little bit because my brother used to live here. He is not here anymore but the irony is that now I moved here.
The city seems lively and busy, and it seems a little bit more sunny than York, too.
My office is in the center and I can walk everywhere, or bike, when my bike will arrive from the US (yes, I am shipping my 1970s old steelframe bike from Oregon).
In Italian we say 'Chi ben comincia, è a metà dell'opera.', which translates as 'Those who well start, are halfway done.'
Well, today's start was great therefore I have a great feeling about my new job! Great energy, cool projects, young studio and the right position.
I am exploring the center by walking around and by going to new gyms. That makes me see the city and the surroundings of where I am going to spend most of my time.
There is a lot to explore in Nottinghamshire, but I am going tow wait for my girlfriend Stephanie to arrive.
By they way, my brother's birthday is on Wednesday! He is going to come here and I am taking him out for dinner.
He hasn't been here for a while so it's going to be almost as a flashback to be here with him, like when I was coming to visit him years ago.
Hopefully it'll be nice again - today the sun was peeking out of the clouds.
On we go with a new chapter of my life!
