Vacations & Good and bad news

Ok, I know that I am a little disappeared...ok ok...not a little...VEEERY. But now, in this post, I'm going to try to tell you about the most important things that have happened since I had been here for the last time.

Many things happened and truly I don't know how to start. Hummm...perhaps appologizing must be a good start hum (when I say or hear the sound "HUM" in the end of a sentence, I remember my teacher Sonia...rsss - I like her).

Ok, David is no more our teacher on Thursdays. People at school told us that he went back to his country - Canada. Now, the new teacher is Dorothy. She is funny and a good teacher.

So, Sonia around 6 weeks ago went to her country - the USA - because she was on vacation. The step teacher was a young and beautiful girl called Terry (I don't know how to write her name). She is also from the USA. My colleagues and I liked her. She is very calm and speaks so softly. Hey ,Sonia, don't be
jealous, you are special...rs

After the first class with Terry I also got on vacation. I traveled a lot. I went to São Paulo, Formosa, Cristalina, Alto Paraíso and São Jorge. I also received a special visit from São Paulo: my big friend Cristina. All the time was very funny and amazing. When I returned, Sonia was still on vacation and I took the last class with Terry and the others told me that a colleague called Flávia left us to take private classes. I think that she did a good thing for her. Her English is very good, much better than ours.

Nothing in life is totally perfect. Another thing happened, something that I didn't like, but some things cannot be said. So, it drives me angry and I think that "we" need change this - sad - reality. Arrogance is not a good thing.

Well, Sonia returned from the USA and brought us some candies...delicious candies.

After the next class, the
rhythm of this blog will return to the normal. I promise...rs

Yesterday night, my friends and I went to a free concert at CCBB (Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - Bank of Brazil Cultural Center) to watch a concert of Dado Villa Lobos, a guitar player who played in the 80's in a very famous Brazilian band called "Legião Urbana". The concert was very good and it reminded me about how the song of that band - that doesn't exist anymore - are wonderful. The lyrics are poetic, I got emocioned

Below I put a video from Youtube of song called "Monte Castelo" with subtitles in Portuguese.

Watch it and have fun.

"Even if I could speak the human's language... even if I could speak the angel's language...without love I wouldn't be anything..."

Ok...good bye

Traveling around the world - my twenty first class

Hey Hey

My last class with David - on March 31st - was not with David, because he was - sick ,I think - so, that day we got class with Melissa. She is brasilian but she had lived in a lot of countries like: Spain, United Kingdon, U.S.A., Servia and others.

So, she told us how it is to live in other places and that she has a "mistery" with the letter "B". It is because she has lived in many places that the name starts with "B" like: Belgrado, Berlin, Barcelona, Brasília and others.

Since I have a fried who lives in Servia, I asked her how it is to live there and she told us that Servia is the most diferent plance in Europe and that the servians luck like brasilians.

She said that the servian women are very beatiful: tall, thin, blond and with blue eyes and that they dress very provocatively but in truth, they are very shamed.

We talked about politics too and I said that my life and my family's life was improved after Lula.
He is not a God, but he did a good job. Many brasilian people are no more poor and many others have now money not only to eat, but to buy a new car or the first own house.

So, she said that it is very dagerous, because Brazil can be like U.S.A., and I said that I know that, but is better to be like the U.S.A., than Somalia.

Well, I left the class five minutes earlier - sadly - but it was because I was going to the cimena to see "Esposa de mentirinha" with a friend and the session started at 21:30h.

So, I really loved that class, I for me it was a pleasure to meet Melissa.

I don't believe - my twentyth class


Ok, I will be brief.

I prefer not to make a comment about my - supposed - last class with Sonia - on March 28th.

The only thing that I wanna say is: about that day I'm felling like the picture on top.

Reading a lot - my nineteenth class


My last class with David - on March 24th - was a bit boring because: at first - just Flavia and I went to the clas and secondly - we read...read...read..and read more.

I think that we read about twenty leaves.
We read about italian food and other things. Hey...lets wake up. LOL.

I'm sure reading is very important, but it is not enough.

Personality test - my eighteenth class


My last English class with Sonia, on March 21st, was really amazing.

We talked about movies. This subject started because Márcio was there with two DVD's that he and his family watched during the weekend.

Sonia asked me if I had gone to Shakira's concert last week. No, I didn't. By the way, the concert was cancelled because of the strong rain.

We talked about chocolate and how the Brazilian chocolate is sweeter than ihe ones made in other coutries.

Maybe that is the reason why I don't LOOOOVE chocolate, but when a FINE chocolate "throws" into my hands I really get crazy.

We reviewed the active and passive voices and we took the Tibetan Personality Test.

This test was created by a Dalai Lama. It is a very simple test that can describe your personality and how your life is in this moment.

Well, speaking of personality test, according to one topic of the test my CAREER is my current priority, and according to another topic, I am a SMART person... (it can be good....or not...rs).

So, this theme took us to another theme: Chinese Zodiac. According to Chinese Zodiac, I'm PIG, and being pig means:

"Noble and strong, the Boar or Pigs are noble creatures and will always put others ahead of themselves, especially their family. Friendships they build will last a long time even though the reckless nature of a Pig can sometimes be tough to handle. Pigs are a bane to themselves".

So, I already have used this test with my friends.

OK guys, that is all for now. See you soon...kisses and hugs!

Ps.: this is my favorite chocolate
