Yeah, really. I accepted the PhD post in Kent, and I will start there by the end of this month. Right now, I still have my viva to complete and some time to enjoy the good Portuguese weather (even when it is rainy like today, it is still a lot less miserable than the “standard” English weather – and I’m talking about Kent, not some soggy northern county! :)).
Of course it is hard to leave friends & family, but it is something that must be done… and I’m not embarking in a journey towards the unknown, I’ve been there already for 6 months, it is almost like my 2nd home! 😀
