First trip

Submitted by David Y on Пнд, 06/29/2015 - 17:10

Tomorrow I have to travel to Lisbon because I have a meeting with my portuguese coworkers. The meeting will be extended whole day, so that means I will take the last plane to return to Madrid.
It's a good chance to meet knew people and learn how the portuguese markets works. The preferences and likes of portuguese people could seem very similar to spanish people, but our culture and behaviour have lots of difference. I'm very exited because it's the first time I go abroad for work. I'm sure there will be a great day.

Draft

Submitted by Crypto on Пнд, 06/29/2015 - 12:55

Thank you very much for your painting and for your congratulations on my marriage. I met my wife on a Christian website. That happened about two years ago. I used to travel to her city as often as I could, which was quite often, since at that time I could profit from low-cost flights departing from London. Later on, when I moved to Italy, she used to visit me here. I do not know if I have already told you this, but we got married in Moscow. Her friends and her church helped us a lot and because of that we were able to afford the cost of the wedding. Our marriage life is awesome.

Thanks for helping others.

cover letter

Submitted by Crypto on Пнд, 06/29/2015 - 08:23

I have extensive experience in the use of microscopes. While pursuing my PhD thesis, I used microscopy to study the distribution of fluorescent dyes on solid matrices. After getting my PhD, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Spain, using microscopy to study the interactions between dyes and biomolecules. Later on, I moved to Ireland, where I worked as a researcher for two years. While in Ireland, I used fluorescence confocal microscopy to study the properties of both lipid bilayers and nanostructured materials. After finishing my contract with X University, I moved to Italy.

Zombie apocalypse

Submitted by Crypto on Пнд, 06/29/2015 - 06:19

I went from store to store looking for the things that we needed the most. The streets were completely deserted and littered with rubbish and supermarket carts. I stood in the middle of the street while newspapers flew under the fleeting sunlight and grey, empty skyscrapers were silhouetted against the increasingly reddish horizon. I realized how little time I had. I needed to return before the sunset. I ran to the nearest pharmacy and I threw as many antibiotics as I could find into my backpack. I went out and started racing towards the old truck.
