Miscellaneous stuff

Here you will find miscellaneous notes about the books I read, some art and culinary and some thoughts on politics. This page is divided into four sections, with explanations on the top of each section. Those are Annotations, Politics, Glossaries and Recipes.

If you are looking about computing and technical stuff, check the tech section.

Note

I'm not an art critic, nor literature specialist, nor even have some degree in art and literature. But the notes below are just my sincere feelings about what I read and what I few in the field of art and life (and some politics too). I apologize for the errors you will find and I'll be happy to receive your feedback.

Also, I'm not fluent in English. That is why the Glossaries section do exist. I'm also happy in receiving your feedback on any English error or mistakes on this website.

Annotations

Here are just some random notes about the books I read. The idea here is to write what is more important in each chapter, page etc. of each book worth to be noted. Sometimes it is just a transcription of some parts of the books (the most important ones, for me), sometimes a summary of important subjects so it is easy to find it further, or just my opinion in something.

Must of them are in Portuguese, which is the language I read most of the books.

Politics

  • Data from Reality: a collection of data about economics, politics, etc. so to serve as argument in a discussion.

Glossaries

This is one of the parts I must like. I'm a hobbist on languages and translation, but I'm too far from being an expert. I'm a reader of English books but I frequently come across words that I don't know. When it happens, I write down the word with the definition at that point of the text, after consulting the dictionaries. In this section you will find my dictionary on LIBRAS too.
