Juno


Juno is the last film that I have seen. First of all it didn’t catch my attention, but some friends recommended it to me. They told me that was a story about a pregnant teenager and I thought that it would be the typical story of every film.

Some days later I realized that Juno had won the Oscar to the best writing and that was nominated to another ones, so I decided to watch it.

This film is starred by Ellen Page (Juno) who is only sixteen years old is a girl who has an encounter with Paulie, his best friend, and she is pregnant. At first she decides that she will have an abortion, but later she decides to have it and give it for adoption, so she has to search for an adoptive parents for her child and she found ones in the newspaper. Juno accepted a contract that when the baby born she won’t have contact with him.

On the last month of pregnancy Juno has some problems with the adoptive family but they will solve it. It’s a film which I recommend to everybody because it’s a different one, different to others.

No reservations

Catherine Zeta-Jones's movie is the last movie that I have seen. It happens on a kitchen chef that receives her orphan niece in her house. This situation is new for Kate, the name of the protagonist. About the help of the new chef of the Kate’s kitchen, Kate will learn to having a good relation with her niece and this, will learn to understand her aunt by means of the kitchen.
I love the movies that happen in a kitchen or that the protagonists are cooks because for me, the world of the kitchen and food are a big important subject, and last summer I was worked in a kitchen, and there I had a lot of new experiences and I discovered that the hunger isn’t a vital custom: it is a great passion that could join the lives of the people. I think that it's very difficult to understand the big sacrifice of a cook because it's a very sacrificed work and the majority of times & is bad rewarded. But in my opinnion, I see me like my granmother and I like to cook!



I recomended this film!

PARKOUR

For sometime in many cities of our country we can find boys and girls practicing parkour.

When I hears to talk about this discipline I surprised myself and I thought that the people who practiced it were crazy, but I knew a boy who practiced this discipline and he explained me in what it consisted. To my seemed me interesting and that's why I think that it can interest you.

Parkour: It originates from "parcour" that it means "covered" in French.
Pk: Abbreviation of "parkour".
Traceur: Medical Assistant of Parkour. It means "plotter". The feminine one is "traceuse".
The parkour is a discipline that consists on being displaced by the urban area or natural, overcoming the obstacles that present themselves in your tour (you fence in, walls, empty...) in the possible most fluid and most efficient way, and with the only possibilities of the human body.
This discipline requires a great training to carry out the different movements (jumps, climbed, etc.) that it implicates, but besides a mind decided to surpass the fears themselves, a great concentration, and a strong spirit is necessary.

After this brief explanation I put a demonstration of this modality for you:

Sunrise

It was a summer day, the hottest day and that was why I couldn't sleep more.I got up and I sat in my bed, I closed my eyes to think what I was going to do, the clock showed me it was 6 o' clock in the morning, so I got dressed and I came out from home. At the beginning, the only I did was going round and round the little village I was on vacation, but lately something appeared in my mind, the sunrise was starting. Run, that's what I did, ran to the harbour, to sit on the biggest stone to have the best sight of this magical landscape. When I arrived nobody was there, the loneliness was involving my body, so I looked around to take the best place, I sat down on a stone that was huge and the sunrise kept all my attention.
When the sunrise had finished I closed my eyes, there were no sounds, it was full of peace and I felt that I was better than never before. But suddenly something made me feel fear, a hand was on my shoulder, I turned my head slowly and a smile appeared in my face.

My ideal job

Joggers who get up early and run through the park, executives who try to work off stress with a game, and people who do bodybuilding may all be shortening their lives. The secret to a long and happy life is… being lazy. Of course! I don’t say that work it’s bad but in other words, I think when you have time to enjoy your personal life, you work much better. People who work 50 or 60 hours a week don’t have any time at all and this is very important. Sometimes these eat very badly because his lunch hour (about half past and hour or less time) isn’t enough to have a proper meal. Maybe they earn a lot of money but… is it worth it?

The right job is that where you would like to work as part of a team, enjoy all the time, know listening to people, have overtime to dedicate your private life with your family, friends and good timetable. If you have a good job, you will probably happy and get a big salary. The money doesn’t important until up to a point. It helps for some things and satisfies more.

I hate jobs that wear a uniform, must be get up early, work l& ong hours at night and weekends. I think that work it could be peaceful and contribute a happy and grateful life.

A dream coming true

Holiday, holiday and holiday!! I’m looking forward to the next holiday, Summer! In Summer I will have finished school and have made all the exams therefore I’ll be so relaxed, cool!! I can’t wait, I need the satisfaction of having all done and have free time for myself! I will go out with my friends, sleep, travel, it must be perfect! Sometimes I close my eyes and I imagine, I dream what my holiday will be like. I don’t know why but this year I’m very excited about holiday, maybe because I’m too tired and bored or maybe because it always reminds me happiness. I need a change and Summer stands for it.I will be dreaming my vacation as long as it doesn’t arrive, do you want to share my illusion?

THE WORST EXPERIENCE

I'm going to writte about the worst experience of my life. It was one year ago, when I went to Barcelona to pass the
music exams to join in the "ESMUC" (Escola Superior De Musica De Catalunya). I studied very hard for one year, only to preparate these exams. All weekends I stayed in Rialp playing acordion. First I played alone, later I played with the other people who preparates these exams. The definite day, we went to Barcelona. I played two songs. My music liked the judge. In the afternoon, I went to another class to being the theoric exams. I passed correctly three exams, but in the last one I had a 4,6. I failed the last prove and so I couldn't join in the school.
I know that joining was difficult because the judge chooses only two acordion players for year. But, every day I thought in these exams. It's my dream and I didn't pass &. This situation was horrible for me, but I wish I passed & next year. finnally, I know that it was a bad situation, probably the worst in my life, but now I know that I can't have all I wan't in my life. maybe I pass this exams in the future ;)

Heidelberg

On Friday 14th at 6:15 on the afternoon my flight took off. My cousin was waiting for me when I arrived. We drave aproximately an hour to Heidelberg. Oriol called a friend to have dinner together. We went to a German restaurant, but they threw us out because the kitchen was closed so we went to another restaurant were we ate pizzas. Then we went out, but we came back home early because I was very tired. On the next day, we went to see Heidelberg's castle and the "Haupstrasse" were I cood buy a lot of souvenirs and other things. On the afternoon we went to Darmstadt to visit a friend, Laia. We could see her acting on the theatre. It was amazing! Then we went to a "Tailandés" and when we had finished we drave Laia to Frankfurt's train station. She had to take a train to a small city were she would have an audition. We came back home at 3 o'clock at midnight. On Sunday we had breakfast on a typical restaurant at 12:00 and then we visited the laboratoy where my cousin works. It was really interesting!!!

euthanasia

The law forbids the euthanasia because & is illegal to kill somebody. They think that if somebody who can not do anything in his own so he wants to die and a friend does the favour of giving him the lethal medicine, the friend will be considerate as a murder and he will be judged as a murder.
I disagree with this because if I was suffering a lot and I knew that I were going to die, I would prefer to die before continuing suffering. Why can not I die if I want? I know that everybody has the right of life but they have to considerate these terminally cases. They only think that if the patient can not do any in his own and die, this is a murder and the “criminal” has to be judged.
On the other hand& & are the arguments that any people give to apologise this law. But I do not know what these arguments are and I can not imagine any.
As & conclusion I can say that everybody would have the right of die when he wants, although it is a bit perplexing conclusion.

The Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Triangle of Devil and The Leaf blade the Lost, is a geographical area located in the Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Fort Lauderdale, Florida (The union of these three points form, logically, a triangle). It is famous because in this area has been numerous disappearances of ships and planes, many of whom are still without explication, as well as certain phenomena that some have reported (lights, malfunction of compasses, among others). The triangle which form the above points is nearly equilateral, with an approximate area of 1.2 million km² (almost half a million square miles).

Music, a language

Music is universal. It is produced by all the cultures. Scientists believe that music became before speech. Their theory is that languages were sing rather than spoken. Researchers also say that when a women is pregnant and she listens to music that she likes, the foetus feels well and also enjoys the good feeling that his or her mother has at that moment. It is also proved that if you go to a school and you tell a story to children, they will better remember if the story is sing than spoke.
In the Hospitals, people who suffer from mental ills, they have better recovery on listening to music. I totally agree with this. I, when I feel bad, tired, exhausted or happy I also listen & music (it depens on my mood the music I listen to) but if I tell you the truth it relax me a lot and it makes me feel better.

SMOKERS – NON SMOKERS

Actually, we can see some debates of smokers and non smokers in the mass media.
Recently, the law that forbide smoking in some public places causes a big discussion. People who smoke say that they nedd a cigarette with the coffe, beer, chocolate and in their breakfast, and in the afternoon too (for example) and non smoker people say that the smoke annoys them a lot.
Is the solution to this problem to separate this two types of people in different public places?
Personally, I think it’s a difficult situation, because nowadays there a lot of people who smoke.
I think that there are some situations that the smoke annoys another people a lot, for example in restaurants, but it isn’t necessary to separate people in the bars.
There are different situations when people should have to learn to conform and be more patient.

Dreaming

From the tiny covert gap of my new room, I could discover the first vernal Monday; a sky without any cloud, covered with a dazzing sun and this was illuminating my room. In the horizon I could see Eigers' edge snowed. All the fields surrounding my wooded house were full of small thicket and white and yellow flowers, these trampled on by the sheep.

I had a premonition and I went quickly to the door. He was there. I stopped exactly at his side. He looked at me and he kissed me. His lips were cold. I thought that perhaps he had drunk a glass of cold milk. But I woke up few minuts later and then I knew my father, despite being dead, loved me.

Time to make decisions

This year is the last one for us, the most important course. Lots of things are in our heads, to have the bests marks, think about what degree we should choose and how are going to be our tests to enter to university.
We are too young to make a desicion that is going to chance our future. Nowadays, almost only 30 % of the people of my generation knows what they want to study and later to work.
Moreover, we are only teenagers and we want to live our lives and worry about nothing. We need to be free but we have to get used to adult life.Therefore, this last year in high school tries to change a little bit our mids, our concerns, to make us realise the importance of this last period of school.
So, it's a difficult year for us, like I've said before, time to make decisions and these ones are the most important that we have ever made. And now I think I'm the one that should think more about what I will do with my future, I haven't taken a decision yet.

Spring is coming

I like spring very much, because I like when the flowers are blossing, the weather is not as cold as in winter and days are longer.

In the lasts years the weather has changed a lot, because of the greenhouse effect which affects people, animals and the temperature of the atmosphere. The seasons of the year are changing too much, so there are some good and bad things in our lives with these changes.
One bad thing is that when the weather should be good is very cold, so we come back to the winter and it happens the same with the trees and the plants, and the consequences are terrible, because the trees get frozen.
Another bad thing for people are the allergies caused by the pollution and for the changes of the weather.

I would like that the weather and the seasons would be like before, that everywhere had got appropiate climate to the season.

Trying to improve

At last I'm eighteen so the last sunday I could go to vote for these new elections of the government of Spain. Some days before, I was really happy and excited because it was the firts time for me, but not all the people felt like me. I spoke with some friends who are already eighteen and some of them told me that they wouldn't go to vote. Their reasons were good. They don't trust the politicians and think that any one of them think really with us. Nowadays, we have got a lot of problems in this society. For the youngsters & is impossible to do some kind of things like live alone and rent or buy an apartment. Another important problem is the job and money. Now, salaries are too lower in comparison with prices of the most of the things, specially for the young people who sometimes have a lot of problems to find a well paid job, and many times they have to work and study at the same time. Everybody say that we are the future but if we continue for this way, our future will be very hard. I agree with my friends and for this reason, yesterday, I went to vote, because I hope that things can be better and we are who have to try it.

Job risks

It is said, that there are too many job accidents but did you ask yourself why?
Many people are hurt or killed every year while they are working. Danger is everywhere, in a house, in a school, in a factory, on the roads...
Everybody who has people working for himself looks after him workers' safety. But even though, things are not so clear.
A manager may think that he has everything under control, but if his workers don't carry out the law, for example wearing a helmet, the security is out.
Fortunately,
nowadays the law watches out for all of those who don't obey the rules and if security is not carried out literally, a high punishment might happen to them.

Fake politicians

Just in a few days we are going to know who will be the new president of Spain. How should we feel? I would like to vote but I can’t as I’m not eighteen! It’s a pity!

Anyway, I want to give my opinion. Mainly, I’m very upset because of the politicians. They are always putting forward purposes which everybody knows they won’t do. Then what can we do?

It’s worthless to trust them, it’s always the same and I’m quite tired! If I were them, I would try to improve our country, however, they only want to bring in a lot of money for themselves.

In Spain there are a lot of organizations, but only two are the most important. Who is the best? Zapatero or Rajoy? You may agree more with one than with the other but at the end they are quite similar. They only try to put down each other forgetting that the most important thing is the population and not them. Instead of correcting their mistakes, they prefer explaining the other’s. They are so childish! I’ll be so disappointed in politics as long as our president is a person who is always reproaching, hiding his mistakes without correcting them. They lie and use us to achieve their personal goals. I hope one day it’ll change for better and only then I’ll trust in politics.
