Improve??? Yes, you can!

Sometimes we tend to think that there is no room for improvement, and we feel at a dead end. We do the homework, try to study ... and nothing happens; our results are not what we expected.

I am sure that if we take the time to think about it, we will find some aspects that can be improved just by making an effort and changing 'bad' habits or routines. So, that's the question: what can we do to improve?

Have your say!

The Government's cuts

I think that the government's cuts or "retallades" are intended only to promote their political interests, such as cutting public health to name the private benefits and thus have the sirecor this company. It could also be that the cuts were to fix the country and they are appropriate. What do you think?

Gay marriage

I'm a christian, protestan, anabapist menonite but i'm not against the gay marriage or the homosexual relations because I think that it is love and it doesn't matter, the genere, the race, the age, the nationality and the thoughts of the couple; only matters the true love. Now, this is more a religion feel but I think that God loves all the people, and the homosexuals too because they're human.

Winter or Summer?

I like the summer because I can go sunbathing with my friends, bathe on the beach, in the pool. I also like the atmosphere, the days are longer, prettier. But I also like winter because I can go skiing, and also because it's Christmas.
What about you?

Sant Jordi ... a book or a rose?

Every year on 23rd April the city's streets and squares become more alive with the little book stalls with the last bestsellers scattered here and there. The flowershops sell roses of all types and colours; the streets get crowded with people browsing books or buying a rose. It's one of the most beautiful customs I know of. It is great to see people at the book stalls in Les Rambles (or any other part of the city) making up their minds about THE BOOK they are going to buy for the loved one. And the colourful bunch of roses ...
What do I like getting for Sant Jordi? Well, will you be surprised if I answer "Both"? I am what the English call "a bookworm" - I love reading - and I love roses, too!!
What about you? What feelings does Sant Jordi evoke for you? Are you a book-person, a rose-person or both?

Are school rules a good idea?

I think school rules are necessary. If everyone did everything they wanted, it would be chaos! There's nothing wrong with having rules; on the contrary, it makes life much easier for all people involved. It is a way of learning about living in society. It clarifies what you can or should do in certain circumstances and also what you mustn't do. But I believe these rules should be reasonable; I mean, rules must contribute to the well-being of the people involved - otherwise, they become non-sensical.

Chatting online is better than talking on the phone

Chatting online is fantastic! You can do it at any time and you don't have to worry about waking up people if it's a bit late at night. Moreover, nobody will be able to "hear" what you "say". This is especially useful when you want to organise a surprise event for a friend or a member of your family. And if you need to tell something to someone and you're travelling on the bus or the underground, noboby will overhear you; your private conversations will remain private. Besides, with the smart phones we use today, chatting online is even easier and really comfortable, as you don't need a computer to do it.
What do you think? Do you prefer chatting online or talking on the phone?
