My Mother

Two years ago, before summer, my mother had a sickness.
This sickness is chronic, and it is called “Crohn”. This affects the stomach, when my mother eats, she has a very strong pain.

This sickness has changed the life of the family because it is very difficult to find the medicines. This causes that my mother has to go frequently to hospital. She is the basis of the family. When my mother was in hospital, me, my father and my brother were in charge of the chores. When the doctor changes the medicines for my mother, first she feels good but later she is bad. The last medicine suits her bad. And the third suits her very good and it’s the medicine that she uses now.

The Amish

Hi bloggers!  Do you know who the Amish are? I will explain.
The Amish community is a group of people who stay separate from the world, and have their own language. They live in various parts of the world, and are known for their simple living, plain dress and reluctance to adopt modern technology.
The Amish are baptized as adults, but before that they are given permission to explore life outside their community to decide if they want to be part of this community. This "ritual" is called Amish Rumspringa and it is held at the age of 16. Unlike what you see in the movies, these teenagers typically explore simple things like going to the cinema or using electronic devices. Very few have decided to leave the community.
Amish women do not have the same right as Amish men. They must first consider the Church, the community and the family. Women must still follow the rules of their fathers and when married they have to be submissive to their husbands.
Amish women wear their hair long, and have a cloth covering their head. They also wear clothes with long sleeves and long skirts. Jewelry and make-up is banned.

Education for children in Amish communities is in the schools created by the community. They offer an education until they are teenagers. From this age men learn a profession, but women receive home instruction.

Vikings, a TV series

Vikings is a TV show based on the legends of a  Viking called Ragnar Lodbrok, one of the most famous heroes of Nordic culture that raided Northumbria, France and Britain. The series portrays Lodbrok as curious warrior and navigator, technologically innovative, ambitious and rebellious. He builds a boat with his friend Floki, to travel and explore the territories of Western Scandinavia, disobeying the tribal Chief. Count Haraldson, who ordered them travel towards the poorer countries to raid them, is killed by Lodbrok because he doesn’t want to obey Haraldson.  Lodbrok doesn’t want to go to the north because all the Vikings have always used that route and he wants to discover somewhere new.

How to make a custom case for your mobile

Hi bloggers!

Today we will learn to make a custom case for your mobile phone. To start we buy a transparent case and now we search some photos that we like to have in the case. When we select the photos, we print and cut the photos. Then we paste them in the transparent case.  We will wait until it dries. And now we have our custom case.

Goodbye!!!.

Once Upon a Time

Hi bloggers!
Today i’m going to talk about “Once Upon a Time”, a TV series.
Once Upon a Time was created by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.
The show is based on the theory that there is another world where all the characters of the classic fairy tales exist. That world hasn’t got connection with our world.
It focuses on the characters from various fairy tales and the Evil Queen. She wants to ruin the lives of the other inhabitants because she suffered a lot when she was little and she wanted everyone to pay for what she had to go through. She made a curse, that sent all the people to Storybrook, Maine, where they all live without knowing who they really are, so that she is the only one with a happy ending.
The characters are:
-          Gennifer Goodwin as Snow White
-          Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan
-          Lana Parrilla as Evil Queen
-          Josh Dallas as Prince Charming
-          Jared S. Gilmore as Henry Mills
I like this series because I think it’s very original and because I have always liked the fairy tales.

When I first saw the synopsis I thought it was perfect for me, the fairy tales in our world, that’s what I dreamed when I was little

Theatre in the School. Behind the Scene

Last Tuesday 31st January, our class went to the theatre to watch how an actress and an actor can perform a real story alone. The participation during the play was volunteer. It was very interactive, so, I have participated and it has been a more exciting experience than staying sitting with the audience. The backstage was so cool! I was with Núria A. and Ángel P. of 4th ESO and Thalía S. and Roc F. of 3rd ESO. We were laughing all the time. We have dressed up like actors of the story for a short time, wearing a pink wig, red glasses, black gloves, a long jacket...
I hope next time, some other students were volunteers because it’s so interesting and funny to act.
Alba F.C. 4th ESO

On Tuesday, we watched an excellent play in English at our school.  The most exciting has been to share a short time with the actors. We have had fun a lot!  At the beginning I was shy and suddenly  I was acting with my partners of 1st and 2nd ESO, Natán T., Lucía C. and Toni S.
I recommend to participate next time!! I won’t forget this experience!!!

Sebastian Vettel

Hi bloggers!
 I'm going to talk about Sebastian Vettel. He is one of the most famous Formula One drivers. He is 28 years old and was born in Germany. He started his career with carts in 1995, wining some championships.

His career in formula one started in 2007 with Toro Rosso in a debut race in Indianapolis. In 2008, he did his first complete season and he got his first victory in Formula One, getting the record of the youngest man to win a Formula One race. In 2010, he won his first Formula One World Championship, in a crazy season, also in the beginning. In 2011, 2012 and 2013, he won three more titles and became the youngest driver to win four Formula One Championships. All these championships are with the Red Bull Racing Renault. I think this demonstrates that Sebastian Vettel is one of the best drivers of Formula One in history. He drives for Ferrari. The new season will begin soon… Let's continue making history.

My holidays in Boliva

Hi bloggers!
The second time I went to Bolivia was when I was 11 years old, I do not remember much of that trip but there are things that I do remember, for example when I played with my brothers in our house, that was under construction. Because it was under construction we slept in my uncles house that, for me, was a mansion because it had three floors and it was very big. I liked to go to my uncle's house, because he had a son that played with me and my brothers. Sometimes when we were tired of sleeping in the house we took a tent and slept outside. Because we had neighbors, sometimes the children of the neighbors would come to play at our house which I liked because we played with balls or with some dolls that I had brought  from Spain.

In addition to being in my uncles house and building our house, we also were going to visit my mother's family that was in Santa Rosa, a town not far from where we were. When we arrived my grandmother welcomed us with a big happy hug. She had a fairly large house which we stayed at for a few days. It was there where I drove for the first time, my father taught me for a few minutes how to change gears ... etc.
Sometimes at my grandmother's house we would go to a farm that was far away, near a river. The trip did not take long because we went at night, which was very cold and we also stopped to see the landscape. When we arrived at the farm we slept because it was late afternoon and at dawn I left the tent and  found a goose which frightened me . When we were returning to Santa Cruz where my uncle lived, we went out every day to visit our relatives and went out for dinner at family restaurants.

In conclusion this trip enchanted me for many reasons, I hope to go again to my country of origin.
