June 2011 (:

Being a good student, I wrote all my tasks that I need to do for organizing my time. These days I’m used to studying all my notes so as not to forget the topics. On the other hand I can’t stand doing homework because I have been busy in the evening. The only hour I’m free is at 9pm.

When I was in elementary school, during exam week, my mom used to help me to study and I used to get good scores. When I advanced to Junior High School, I started to study alone, but I just got bad scores…

Nightmare #1

The following story actually occured in my head this morning at 4am, when I decided it was time to go to sleep. I woke up at aproximately 6am, rushing to my computer to write this. I decided not to change the names of people who might be known around here and appeared in my nightmare, for their appearance is not quite compromising... Here it goes...

 

Like any other night, I was willing to go to sleep. Little I knew about how this story would end, just like little I knew…

My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell (:

The book talked about the adventures of the “Durrells” and the animals.

They were from England, but they decided to live on the Island of Corfu.

There was silence (:

There was silence, but only for a moment. I was with my family in the living room. There was a problem again, but now it was about my sister; she finally announced that she was pregnant. The announcement disappointed all of us. My brother looked as if he were thinking evil thoughts; my mother just looked worried; my father was getting angrier and angrier, and I didn’t know what to do.

Hanna entered the old building. She walked to the…

Peer Pressure (:

I’m Mexican. I live in Tuxtla Gutierrez. I’m 18 years old and I study at TEC de Monterrey. Different types of peer pressure exist in my school, like wearing a good clothing brand, having a Blackberry, reading the book of the moment, watching a program on TV, or getting a standard score. I think all this kind of peer pressure has negative effects because you look the way other people want to see you, and if you want to be like this, you have to make some sacrifices, buy expensive things or do…
