Film review: Maleficient

This film is about Maleficient's story and as you know she is the witch in sleeping beauty. It is not the same story as you have seen, therefore there are much more things behind this version. First you can see how was Maleficient when she was a child and then an adolescent, when she became bad. She's so disappointed with love and someone stole her wings.
I personally liked this film because you can see that she's not as bad as she seems.
Angelina Jolie is Maleficient and I think she's a really good actrees. There were a lot of characters,Sleeping Beauty whose name is Aurora, Phlip prince, the king and the three Godmother fairies, who takes care of Aurora since she's born. There are a lot of special effects because there are monsters, fire and this kind of fantastic things. My favourite part is the ending but...  I WON'T TELL IT!

PS: there's a Song from Lana del Rey 


Repeating 1st of batxillerat.

This year I'm repeating 1st of batchillerat and I feel much better now. Last Year was totally different because there were a lot of groups in class and that was awfull, everybody was in a bad mood. Although, we were mixted, social with scientist one. It was hard because in some subjects, teachers treat us like if everybody was doing the scientist.
My marks were horrible and sad, I failed 7 subjects but in june recuperations I passed 4. I could pass If I recuparate in September, I didn't want do though. I shoud have been studying the whole summer and thi te TDR work and the very important reason was the medium final mark. 
I so happy to have taken this decision and I think I'm doing it fine. University ias waiting for me.

My dreamed job.

I love fashion and I really like to draw my own desings, I do it since I was 8. I started to draw my barbies with different clothes that I wanted to have for the and instead I'm growing up I still draw clothes. What I like the most to draw are wedding dresses and bridemaids dresses.
When I was a child I use to watch the news with my parents in the evening and I was always waiting for the final part before sports, where sometines showed catwalks. I was amazed and I always wanted to be there and watch it in live. In the morning, when I was alone before going to school, my parents where working and I had the TV for myself, that was great because everymorning in Cosmopolitan tv put a diferent designer catwalk and since that moment I get this hobby more seriously.
I know that is a very hard an competitive world, but I hope to study design and achieve this dream.

News: Tebbit and the euthanasia dilema.

Tebbit reveals his disabled wife told him " you'd be better off without me" as he speaks out agains assisted dying law.

Lord Tebbit's wife was paralysed in the 1984 IRA Bombing in Brighton hotel. Since that moment Mrs Tebbit has been in pain and unhappy. So she told her husband that she wants to die and leave pacefully. Since that moment he has been fighting in house of lords in favour of diying assist.

I think that is a justificated reason if you are in pain and you dont want to live enymore like this, to use the euthanasia. It has to be formalized by a lawyer to be legal and be in some kind of limits. Everybody has the right to dye with dignity and pacefully. She has been sufferinf for years and this is not fair for anyone, everybody has to leave happily without any kind of pain. Maybe if you are sick and you'll have a painfull way of die you want to have an assiested death. Brittany Maynard  made it in the USA, she has to move on to another state to be allowed of die intencionally. So, I believe that mrs. Tebbit has the same right and have hope for a better life somewhere, and hope for a better life for her husband.







Lord Tebbit said his wife Margaret had been in constant pain for the last 30 years, since she was injured in the 1984 IRA Brighton bombing, and the pain was getting worse

What's the best age?

When we were 7 we just wanted to have fun and think about what could I wear the next day. Now that I'm 17 I can just think about exams, homework and I have to hit the books a lot. When we were 7 we didn't think obout what people could say about our clothes and we wore colorful dresses and funny tights. When we were 7 we didn't judge a book for it's cover, we were friends with all kinds of people and we had fun with them. Now people criticize us only for being how we are. I miss those afternoons playing in a park with my friends or going to Planeta Màgic.
But being 17 (18 now) is not so bad, you have more freedom to decide what you want to do and you are able to do things on your own, people change and it's normal, we find new friends, we have more ideas and a new perspective to see the life. I cannot choose between these two options because growing up is fun, and after all: impossible to avoid.


Tired of comercial music

Almost everybody listens to comercial music, and for me it's a little bit boring. People is used to listen the same, when ther'es a lot of really good artists unknowns. I think that we are ade by a factory because it happens the same with clothes, thoughts and some kind of things. Sometimes we feel ashaim of being different, when being different is the best thing that you can be. Of course you can preteand that you are not like the others but that's fake and a stupid thing.  Tthe best thing you can be is yourself and be the best you can be. 
There's a song that I really like because it talks about of this: be yourself. Sometimes is hard if you are alone but I'm sure that someday It'll someone who can understands you. The song has been written by Jessy J. Ok, I know that now she's more popular but I still like her. Enjoy it!

The good, the bad and the ugly.

The most important thing in a person is personality- not their appearence or intelligence.- Sometimes we know people who are super intelligent but is a bad person or has a terrible temper. Or in reverse, we know people who is not as intelligent as other people but are sociable  and kind.
It's not bad to be less intelligent then the others, you can fit in with other people if you are friendly and approachable. We usually judge people by the way they dress or beauty and it's not fair because they can be a good person and intelligent as well. This happens too often and we miss to meet someone for these kind of things. 
Sometimes we can have these three things and have luch about this.
I want to use, as an example, Lluis. As all humans he has good things and not so god ones. He has a cheerful personality, he's always smiling when I see him and he has always a funny story to explain to me when we meet. He is someone who you can trust in and talk when you need to, because he always listents to you. he is so shy and and when he is not ok, he sometimes doesn't explain to you why and you have to be like a detective (it's something I'm quite good with). When he is confy with you, he can be a little bit anoying and talks a lot, but this makes me laugh because I do it too. When you don't feel good, for him it's hard to help you, although he understands you and tries to do it and help you. Lluis is so intelligent and he sometimes seems like he's cold and serious and not approachable person, but he needs time. 



News: Money cannot buy happiness

The clear proof that money cannot buy happiness is the BILLIONAIRE John Caudwell.
This man is known as the father or 4U phones. But although being one of the welthiest men in the world, he has a heavy life, but it doesn't mean that he enjoys his luxurious life. He has splited up with his girlfiend Claire Johnson, who has been his partner during this lasts 15 years. The reason was that they were always arguing and it wasn't good for their 10 year old sond. Another point that makes us see how unhappy can be this rich man is the disiese that his sond Rufus (sond of his 1st marriage)  has: agarofobia, he has been with this strugle since 8 years ago . Rufus's sister has suffer several anxiety atacks. We know how a person that we love is not ok can make us feel bad and we feel the pain. 

According to the text my opinion is that: money can't buy us happiness but can help to solve economic problems. This poor man has been the proof. Maybe we can ba as rish as we want to but, we don't have that thing that makes us happy: Love and Healthy. If we don't have Love from ourselfs, family, friends or a couple we couldn't share our joy with someone or maybe we would be with bad companies, like interessed people nor, if we are not healthy we cannot life as long as we want, we would feel ill and tired and it's not ok. Maybe someone who is not rich has love and healthy and that is nice! You can share all that you have with that people quitely.

My experience at Miley's concert.

I think you might know Miley Cyrus, the girl that interpreted Hannah Montana. Well, the last 13th  of June I went to her concert, it was totally a show. We went Esther, Mireia, Angelina and I, and we had a lot of fun. We went to Barcelona on the afternoone and we made a lot of Snap Chats. We were so fancy, we put our outfits on and our red lipstick and we enjoy the whole afternoon. We could listen to her sound check, we saw one of her dancers, we met a friend of us and we sang Miley's songs all the time.
When we were insidte the Palau St. Jordi we were so nervous. the guest artis was a Supermarché dj that made us dance a lot until she was at the stage. She came out from a slide with she sape of a tong and she started to sing SMS song. When she sang adore you and whreaking ball, she made a kiss cam. 
later, she made an acustic little stage when she sang Bob Dylan, Cold play, Dolly Parton ( Joline) and Lana del Rey (summertime sadnes), that was the best moment, I couldn't stop sing summertime sadness, I was crazy. Last song was Party in the USA, where there were a lot of fireworks. It was spectacular. I will never forget that experience. 

Tropico: Lana del Rey

well, this is what I wait for during hours in Youtube. I spent almos a whole night awake since Lana del Rey put this video in youtube. There was a lot of rumors behind this short film that said that Lana would leave music world and tropico was her way to say good bye. But it wasn't true, fortunately this year the singer put her last album, ultraviolence, on sale this summer. Wich I waited for, for a lot of months.
Personally, I believe that she's a really good singer, in fact is my favourite singer. I know that she's a llitle bit weird and chaotic but she has a very strong personality. She's crazy, but she feels free. Her voice conveys you a lot of feelings: sadness, love and takes you to the 60's with just a song. her music comfortes me a lot when I feel sad  or stressed, I put her albums on my iPhone's music, I put my earphones and I reed while Im liying in the bed.
Well i don't know what else I can say, so here I leave you her Tropico flim and a song. I hope you like it.

writing 1st Certificate

Writing 2: 

When I was really small 
Well, When I was a child I use to do silly things like hide for all the house, talk with a banana pretending That it was a phone ... I was crazy ... My best friend and I were living two flats of distance so when she was bored  she came up stairs and played with me, we use to go for the whole building running and calling all the doors, I know, it was wrong but it was funny and We Could not do anything else at These age. We use to go to planet màgic and enjoy together ... I miss all those afternoons and all the clothes That I wear like to wear dresses and the jumpers ... Well I really miss it!

My favourite person...

Everybody has a favourite person in our lifes. Sometimes is a member of our family, a friend, a celebrity... In my case is my Boyfriend Lluis. Is the most similar person like me. He is the only one who understands me and makes me laugh when I need it. He knows when I am sad or worried about something.
Is tge 1st boy that I've ever met that makes the same jokes as me and do them with me without care about what people say. We can go by the middle of the city and annoyig tourists making selfies with them, or being in the middle of their photo when they are doing pictures of something.
I cannot be bored when I'm with him because we have always something to do: go to Starbuck's and pretend that we are so posh, go to the beach, go shopping, etc. He has the most beautiful eyes in the world, I can't stop look at them. We are not an usual couple because we are friends too and we are not always saying how we love each other or how beatyful we are. We call each other stupid, idiot, piggy, koala, retarded and dome more preety things! And that's why I dedicate this song to him, I hope you enjoy it :D

Don't worry if you are lazy because I use to be it too and I found a fantastic gym with swimming pool and spas next to your house, it's quite nice and you will always have a coach  for your own like me as well. It's sad because now in batxillerat we don't have time enough to do all those things that we used to do at the ESO so I think that go to the gym teice a week and some week ends would be awesome.
Of course I can teach you to swim, as you know scuba diving is my passion and I would like to teach you. If  you want t we could meet twice a week, do an hour of excercise and swim two or more hours.
Kisses from your partner:

The secret to longevity?

Keeping busy and having a purpose in life.Older adultswho have a purpose live longer than aimless ones. Busy people may adopt a healthier lifestyle to fulfill such ambitions. The younger you are when you discover your purpose the better.The secret of long life could be as simple as having something to do, psychologists claim. They found adults who spoke of having a purpose in life were more likely to still be aroundThey found adults who spoke of having a purpose in life were more likely to still be around at the end of a 14 year study than those who considered themselves 'aimless.'For those about to retire, for instance, it suggests they will live longer if they filled their days with activity rather than contemplate doing nothing after giving up work.

Reasons to travel

For me travel is one of the best experiences to grow up. Is the way to see the world and learn. The best way to do it is going with friends and planning all that you want to do. Is quite fun to learn how other people live and know other reallities and cultures. Is a way to runnaway from the reallity and get dessestressed. It teach you to improve your lenguage skills and involve yourself with other people, other transport ways, your money administration... I thin one of the best exeples is the gap year, you van go with a charity organitation or travel arround the world. I'm looking forward to be 18 and travel with some friends and discover the world.

Orphan black

Well I couldn't watch the whole serie but I really like it. It's an strange serie where Sara finds a lot of clons exactly like her. Sarah is a Middle lowlife punk who's always stuck in trouble. So much so that almost a year that is not his daughter, Kira. Sarah is an orphan, orphanage and his brother, Felix, and has not had a very stable life. In their flight to nowhere suicide presence of a woman on the subway. A woman who is, and here starts the mess, just like her. We do not know what's going through your head but then decides to supplant. That's when the problems far from solved, are multiplied. Literally.


My experience as baby sitter

Last summer I took care of my twin cousins, Carla and Asier. It was fun but it was exausting too, I had to be in Roses at ten to eight, then I had to eake them up and make them have breackfast. It was difficult to make iy because they wanted to play all  day. Then I had to carry them to go for a walk or have an ice cream and go to the park.

Village or city life?

I live in a village, it is quite borring because you cannot do anything but go  for a walk or take photos. I take the buas to go to Figueres or tar the train to go to Giriona or Barcelona. i would like to live in a city because I could go to the cinema more often or visit shops. to be in the city is more fun than being in a village, you always see more people and different things. There are more activities tand things to do like bowling, shopping, discotecs, etc. Definetly I preffer to live in a city.

Do exercise while you're a batxillerat student

When I was sutudying ESO I had time enough to study and go to the gym, now I can't. I have to study almost the whole afternoon to "try" to pass the exams. Sometimes even if I wake up earlier ( at 5 o'clock) I fail them. I think that I'm blocked because I cannot do anything else but study. I'm so stressed, I don't have time for myself or if I have it I relax a little and then I study again. At the week end I try to go by bike but I want to meet with my friends too. i would like that teachers let us breathe and quit some homework or help us more to orgagnize the exams time table to get  rid of too many exams in one week. Sometimes I have an economy exam one day after bussiness and I confuse them. We need to have a social life or more time to know what we are doing.

News: Teens who troll themselves

in a shocking ney form of self-harming, some young people become their own vile online bullies.


Everyday after getting home from school, the first thing Ellie Thomas would do was switch on her laptop.
then she browsed her facebook page, checked for updates

Then she browsed her Facebook page, checked for updates from friends she had seen just half-an-hour earlier and commented on the latest cute pictures of her baby niece.
But that wasn't the only social networking she did. Later, during a break in her homework, she would curl up on the bed and log on to Ask FM, a social network bear-pit where young people pose questions and invite anonymous answers.
There, under her profile name, she would ask a question such as: 'What is the best thing about me?'
But Ellie didn't have to wait for a response from her friends, or any of the millions of strangers on the network.
Instead, she logged back in under the name of another user she had created, an alter ego called 'Staceeey'. Then she scrolled to her question and answered it herself: 'Nothing. You are no one.'
While her parents, council manager Jonathan and his wife Sue, an office assistant, assumed Ellie was studying for her forthcoming exams, the teenager posted dozens of vicious remarks about herself over the course of a year.
Ellie says: 'I knew it was me writing that stuff, but on screen it wasn't me. My own posts would say I was ugly, I was useless, I wasn't loved... all the stuff going round in my head.
'If I saw it in black and white coming from "other people", it helped get it out there and make it real.
'My friends were trying to stick up for me against these mysterious trolls, so to keep up I had to post insulting messages about them, too, calling them slags.
'It was killing me to see them get so angry on my behalf and I knew I had to stop. But it was never about hurting people. It was about hurting myself.'


Ellie may never have cut herself. But the teenager was engaging in another form of self-harm, which used words instead of razor blades.
She is one of what seems to be a growing number of British teens indulging in the sinister and habit-forming practice of self-trolling.
Ellie was lucky. When another mother asked Sue how she was coping with her daughter being 'cyber-bullied', Sue begged Ellie to tell her what had been going on. She was shocked that her daughter had seemingly kept the hurtful abuse to herself.
Yet Ellie has never admitted to her mother that she posted the comments. To this day her parents think she was a victim of vicious trolling by strangers.
Crippled by embarrassment, Ellie decided to confide in adults who run an anti-self-harm website. To increase understanding of the issue, they shared her story with the Mail this week, providing we changed her name.
Ellie may have found help to beat her habit but not every youngster is so fortunate.
Fourteen-year-old Hannah Smith, from Lutterworth, Leicestershire, hanged herself in her bedroom last summer after messages were posted on Ask FM telling her to 'go die', 'get cancer' and 'drink bleach'.
At first, as in Ellie's case, cyber-bullies were blamed for the abuse. Then her father revealed that detectives believed she had been sending the messages to herself.
Choosing her words with extreme care this month, coroner Catherine Mason said the social network would not be called to the inquest.
 My opinion: 
I think teenager we have a lot of pression beacuse of tho social networks. I think that we pretend to be cool and sometimes we get depressed because watch how the other peopple is and how we are, we want to be perfect and be another person. I think that's why that girl trolled herself...  We are obsessed with the thougt of being bored in our house watching how each other is having fun.

My trip to Paris

They say Paris is Fabulous, ok, it is but not so fabulous as they say. Everybody was telling me before the trip that is magic and is the city of love... I think it would be a nice place if you don't go with your parents, you could go party, visit more interesting places and enjoy it more... It was a little frustrating because there were couples everywhere and I was single and it was sad hahaha I stayed there the new year's eve, we diner in the hotel and then we went to champs Elyseés to see the Arc of triomf, it was awesome, the people was shouting and well... Couples kissing each other and me, just watching Louis Vuiton shop and sayuing, I want this Bag!!! I went to Galeries la Fayette  end everything were luxury brands and this kind of things. Perople that you would never say that they are rich, was buying in Channel or Zanotti... In Conclusion: If you want to go to Paris, go with fiends and a credit card!
 You can see all the pictures on the link bellow!
