July 2nd.... When I met my boyfriend

Well, I’ve put it off for long enough. But by popular request I’ve decided it’s time to put it down in writing. Anybody that I’ve told this story to has always said it’s really romantic and, to be honest, it’s the most wonderful thing that’s ever happened to me. I’ve been a bit unsure about writing about it as it’s a lot more slushy than the usual material I post and it’s very personal. But hey, names have been changed to protect the innocent and it makes a really nice story. I’m not sure I can do it justice but I’ll try. So here we go: the story of how I met my boyfriend.

I’ve mentioned many times before that I moved down to Colina 3 years ago . I didn’t know anybody in the area so I was really nervous. To me it was an adventure and I wasn`t ready for an adventure. So a few weeks before I started my new job my father, brother and I drove down to the area to see if we could find me a place to live. We checked a few places out and eventually found a house that was only a few years old. The problem was that I’d have to wait a further month before I could move in. It was, and is, a great house so I waited and lived in a guest house for my first month.

So after 4 weeks I finally got to move in. I had a bag of clothes with me so I picked up the keys, went to the house to drop my stuff off with a plan to then drive up to my house, pick up my brother and he could help me move all my belongings down and we could go and buy some furniture. But on that Friday evening after work I went into my house and as I came out I bumped into my next door neighbour. Peter introduced himself and told me his name (which I immediately forgot) and we chatted for a few minutes. I though “he’s a bit of all right”.

I didn’t see him for a few weeks but then we started talking. I had no idea if he was single or not and I assumed not as I would often see girls dropping in overnight. So I didn’t get my hopes up. He seemed like a really nice boy so I thought that if I could just be friends with him then that’d be cool. I’d know somebody in the area. The first thing that I really liked about him was that he was very independent. He wasn’t like the boys I’d gone out with before.

So we started by talking, telling each other about ourselves and getting to know each other over the coming months. We went to the cinema a few times and we’d often talk until the small hours in the morning.

Then one night he did something that is number one on my top-ten memories list( because I really have a list). He made a power point presentation with photos when I was a child, and suddenly he started to sing a beautiful.

Well, after a good six months of getting to know each other, we started a relationship. I’m at the stage where I couldn’t imagine life without him and we are still together, for me he is the Mr Right.

When I met Pablo, a cyber friend

One day I was chatting in a web site and I suddenly started to talk with a boy called Pablo, he was very interesting, we got along and while we were talking I found a lot of in common with him, we liked the same kind of music and that kind of things.
The cyber friendship started officialy so we started to talk very day for hours a even, we talked by phone one or twice a week. Of course, he sent me a photo and he looked very handsome.
A couple of month later we decided to meet each other, that was the momenent when everything changed.
Pablo didn´t look like his picture, his hair was shorter, and he was wearing pretty strange clothes. At first I thought he was wearing his pijama. Anyway, I thought he looked a little bit cute and friendly, but I definitly I wasn´t attracted by him!.
He was very talkative, In fact I didn´t get the chance to say anything. He laughed a lot at his own jokes. At first I thought he was really funny, but when I got kind of tired oh his jokes, and I wanted to talke about more serious things, you know, get to know him a little better.
We went to my favorite restaurant " Sushi house ", during the meal, Pablo paid a lot of attention to the waitress, That really turned me off and put me in a bad mood.
When I get angry, I get very quiet, so I didn´t talk very much for the rest of the evening, and I was glad when the meal was over. It was a miserable meeting. I couldn´t wait to get a taxi and go home .
But I discover one thing, though....I´m never going on a blind date again. And of course, I didn´t talked with Pablo again.

June 4 . Films

My favourite film is " Pride and Prejudice", it`s a romantic film based on Janes Austen`s novel.
The film is about Bennet`s family, composed forMr and Mrs Bennet and five sisters who they want to wed with the appropriate young men ( handsome, with values and a lot of money ) but the father wants his dauther to be happy in first place while the mother was concentrated on finding a good husband.
A day a new neighbour shows up to the town with his sister and a friend called Mr Darcy ( In my opinion he is the most romantic man I have ever seen) well, the
new neighbourd ( I don`t remember the name) is interested in the oldest daughter Jane and Mr. Darcy ( My lovely Darcy ) keeps on eye on the second daughter Elizabeth. But Elizabeth tales an instant dislike to Mar Darcy after meet him closely.
Jane, the older daughter starts a relationship with the neighbour and Darcy starts to be more pleasant with Elizabeth and I could say that they start a strange friendship. But one sad day Jane and the neighbour break up and the neighbour with Darcy return to the capital for a couple of months. ( Of course Elizabeth and Jave were sad ).
One day, the neighbour and Darcy return to the country and Jace accepts the neighbour`s proposal of marriage. In that moment Elizabeth leave the house to go walking on the garden. There she meets
Darcy and he admits his love for Elizabeth saying a memorable quote which I remember since I saw this film, he said: " My affections and wishes are unchanged, but one word form you will silence me forever and... I love you, I love you, I love you ".
The film finish when Elizabeth talks with her father and assures that she really loves Mr Darcy.

This is my favourite film, I always try to watch it when I have free time and I really love it, in fact I now exactly some quotes. It`s my favourite because Mr Darcy is fantastic ( For me a totally Mr Right ),

he is not the typical men who stars being nice. For me love is a decision and Darcy and Elizabeth decide love each other.

Nowadays Computers are the most useful device. Clearly they have many advantages and make the life easy, even give the chance to work at home something never ever thought a few years ago but there are also some disadvantages.

To begin with the positive side, you don´t need to spend a lot of money if you want to talk with a relative from other country, you just need to create an e-mail account or install some special programs in which you can talk in live with the other person using microphone ( which the most of the time is included when you buy a laptop). Another advantage are the laptops, you can move with your computer wherever you want and if you have portatil internet is better. Laptops are now really small, there is a new one which weight around 500 gr. Finally computers helps you to know what´s going on in your house when you are working, you just need a camera inside the house, also you can pay bills and buy thing from other countries.

Besides this there´s a negative side, if you spend many time in front of the computer you can have some problemes with your vision or even get blind. In addition to this you can also become overweigth from lack of activity. But the most important disadvange is becouse teenager have changed dramatically due to computers. Nowadays, the majority of teenagers have a computer and it has played an important role in their lives. Teenagers need to be equipped with knowledge of computer technology, as most things in life require the use of computers. Finally other disadvantage of owning a computer is the information that students can access from the Internet specially in terms of education, if children have an assigment to the school they just go to the computer and download the information without paying attention about what is written.

In conclusion, computers can be an amazing instrument if you know exactly how to use it, in terms of time, supervision to the children, etc. People need to be cafrefull about when and how use them.

Arrive to the the school take us just 20 minitues that`s why I moved to the down town three months ago. The schools is fine but sincerely I prefered my last job, I`m really missing my last students, my new students are 11 years old and you know I have always prefer older students.
