PLASTIC, THE BIGGEST THREAT FOR OUR SEAS

Resultado de imagen de plastic in the seaResultado de imagen de plastic in the seaDoes anyone really know how the impact of plastic will affect the world in the next years if we don't do anything? Plastic is always present in our daily lives. From credit card to plastic bags that we use in the supermarkets; almost all is made from plastic and we aren't really concerned about it. To begin with, I'm going to talk about plastic, then I'll move to explain the advantages and disadvantages of using plastic. And finally, I'm going to give you my opinion about this issue.

Plastic is the most common material which is known and used. One of its characteristics is that it has a low electrical and thermal conductivity, it is also malleable. Moreover, it has a low cost, so as the world is moved by money, plastic is the most used material.

For me, plastic hasn't too many advantages to be used. It is light, strong and cheap. In addition, it gives the food it is in contact with a peculiar taste and it is also a good container to save cleaning products. However, the disadvantages are fewer, although they are worse. For instance, it kills turtles that eat it as they think it is food, plastic also damages their ecosystem. Not only that, but also its use affects our health as we breath the chemicals substances.

All in all, we won't stop using plastic, although I'd like to say that we must reduce it. If we don't do anything, what an awful world we will have in the next years! For that problem a lot of campaigns have been set up, for example, the Let's do it! Cleaning up the Mediterranean coast association is a project where tens of thousands of volunteers from countries all around the Mediterranean Sea participate in cleaning up the world. I believe that we have to start raising awareness of the impact of plastic in the world and then take action.

According to Collins' dictionary, “debris” means the remains of something broken or destroyed. And that word comes from French.

DON'T LEAVE IT FOR TOMORROW! START NOW AND YOU'LL BE READY FOR NEXT SCHOOL YEAR.




                    Resultado de imagen de procrastinate things

Today, procrastinating things we have to do is a very common phenomenon. Not only teenagers, but also children and adult people leave things that they can do at the moment to do them afterwards. First of all I am going to write about why this happens, then, I'll move on to explain our waste of time on holidays. And finally, I'm going to give you my opinion about what we must do.

We always think that if we can do things later, it is foolish to do them at that very moment , so we leave things for the last moment. Not only this happens with activities, but also with exams. For instance, I usually study the day before the exam or even, the night before. That's because we have other extra activities, for example, the school of languages or the music school, so we have less time to spend on school chores. However, I'd like to say that if we organize our time, we can spend time on other things.

On the contrary, when we are on holidays, we have a lot of time, although we don't spend it very well. During the summer holidays, we usually go to the beach, spend a lot of time with friends or even, we go to other towns' parties. I reckon that in the summer time it is too warm to do any kind of intellectual activity, we are tired even if we don't do anything. On the one hand, I understand that on holidays we have to relax since we have spent all the year studying and getting up early . On the other hand, I also reckon that we should do something on holidays not to forget the knowledge we have obtained during all the school year.

All in all, I believe it is so important to advance work when we have enough time as during the academic year we must study hard to get good marks and that is a bit difficult if we spend time on other things as reading books or making comments because of our waste of time on holidays. So, get ready for the next school year!

SUMMER TIME IS A TIME TO LET PEOPLE OFF THE HOOK

Resultado de imagen de pokemon goThis summer, Pokémon Go has become the most downloaded game. It is very common to see a lot of people in the street with the mobile in their hands; most of the time, they are catching pokémons. First of all, I'm going to explain how it is played and then, I'm going to give you my personal experience about it.

There are a lot of types of Pokémons and they are everywhere, although the ones you can find in towns or big cities are better and more numerous, while in villages there are fewer and they are of an inferior quality. And now, how it works: firsty, you must activate the GPS and it locates your area. Then, you have to walk and on the screen it will appear a map with a boy. That boy represents you and you're a coach. Moreover, when there is a pokémon near you, it appears and you have to try to catch it. If you catch it, now it belongs to you. There are also Poképaradas, where there are Pokémon eggs that are opened when you walk at a certain distance. There are also gyms to train them. For instance, when I went to the beach, a group of teenagers were going to the Sunem Pub to coach their pokémon. How amazing it is that people from other villages go to others because of a game!

However, I'd like to say that this game has also some disadvantages, one of them is that it is almost always blocked, so you have to wait some minutes and for me, that's boring. Furthermore, it can turn into an obsession to you, then you will need some special attention from doctors who try to eliminate that obsession. And if you have an obsession with the game, you will spend a lot of time on it, so it will cause health problems as sight or mental problems. And that is not all; some people have discovered how hack the game, so that, you don't have to walk to catch pokémon and you can be in other countries as China or USA.

So far I haven't played yet, although most of my friends have already played. I remember the days when I got up early to watch the Pokémon series, that's incredible how it has come back and most people play again. As all fashions, soon, in weeks or in months, that mode will pass to the history and we will remember it like an important fact in our lives.

DON'T YOU LIKE CLASSICAL MUSIC?

I really liked this video, and I also liked Avicii's song a lot. I think it is too difficult to play an instrument like them. However, we can get everything we set out with our effort. 

I like listening to this kind of music, but I'm not into it. I prefer listening to songs with lyrics and with another rhythm. On the contrary, I quite like listening to instrumental paso dobles, marches, and this kind of music. This music encourages me a lot! 

I usually watch a part of the New Year Concert that it is given on channel "The One" on 1st January. It is so beautiful to listen to it!

Music has benefits and here I posted ones: 

- It increases physical performance and it helps you to get the most out of your workout.
- Classical music helps to relax your body physically while it is calming your mind.
- Music helps to reprogram the brain to focus on the music rather than the physical pain.
- It improves mood and lowers stress.
- It boosts your brainpower.

It is incredible how music can help you!
