I know that you’re supposed to write these things in the third person but this is my blog so I’m going do things my way.
This blog started as a project for my career writing class during my last semester of undergrad at San Jose State, followed me during the year after I graduated on accident and figured out what to do with BA in English (with a Portuguese minor, natch), and accidentally became the place where I became the Hamilton of Northern California quidditch.
Okay, enough musical references. As I grow into my life as a writer, Barcelos Knows has become more than just the place where I write about the things I know and love. It’s also where I record my attempts at learning the things I don’t know, document my life as I transition from Old College Student to Young Creative Professional, embrace My Big Fat Portuguese Life, and share my story about living a memorable life in the most forgettable major city in America.
