Do you still remember the days where you had to defragment your hard drive? Interesting memories.
Hi, I’m Henrique! 👋
Born in Portugal 🇵🇹 . I am a Master’s student 🎓 in Computer Science and Engineering at TU/e, in Eindhoven 🇳🇱. At the same time, I’ve been working with Protocol Labs on the decentralization of the web 🌐. I believe in the transparency and openness of the world, in a united Europe 🇪🇺 and that we should all have equal rights 🏳️🌈.
Lately, I haven't been reading 📚 any books. On the big screen, the last movie 🎬 I watched was “Him” and the last episode 📺 was from “Sex Education”. On the musical side, the artist I’ve been listening 🎧 to the most is Omar Rudberg.

August was a busy month. I fly back to the Netherlands quite in the beginning of the month so I could get my second Covid-19 vaccine, which caused a mild fever overnight but was pretty fine overall.
Then, I managed to get some more things for the house as I was in need of some kitchen tools. I also tried, for the first time, to use Hello Fresh. Basically, you select how many meals you want and for how many people, and they deliver you the right ingredients in the right amounts right to your door. It’s quite fantastic. You can even choose your meals!
In the middle of the month, I was able to visit a friend in Gent, which is located in the north of Belgium, Flanders. It was quite a nice trip, even though the train trip of 2h40m could be shortened with smaller interchange rates.
Later in the month, a friend came from Portugal to visit. We managed to visit Eindhoven - where I live -, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and a bit of Utrecht. It was really nice to visit these cities now that the Covid-19 measures are toned down again.
I’m now getting ready to be a mentor of international students, having workshops in cultural awareness and mentoring. Classes start next week!
This year has been passing way too fast. In the beginning, I felt the urge to finish the academic year. Now, I’m only one month away to the beginning of my (hopefully) last year of university. Exciting projects may happen this year and I’m here for it.
July was quite a nice month. In the beginning of the month, I came to Portugal. Then, my boyfriend and I visited Lisbon for roughly a week, which allowed me to see some of my friends, and then we went to Porto, where we had a nice boat ride.
Since then, I’ve been staying at my parents, and, I’m not going to lie, there’s not much to do, but it’s been good nevertheless. I will be soon returning to the Netherlands, so we don’t need to rush.
I’m hoping for a calmer academic year, but is it going to happen? Let’s slowly enjoy the rest of the summer.
June is done, exams are done, first year of my master’s degree is finished. Yay! I really don’t have many updates, besides the fact that I will be working on an exiting project next year at university.
Now, it’s time to rest and go back home.
Enjoy your summer, safely!
