Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Too skinny for the catwalk!!!!

During the summer time we tend to worry a bit too much about our happy bellies, especially men. Here are some articles about eating healthily, or just eating:
- Politicians eating 
- BBC:

Body image: Men 'most unhappy about beer bellies'

Article from the BBC to read:

French MPs back ban on skinny catwalk models

Another article from the Daily Mail: Are size zero models too thin for the catwalk? 

Listening exercise to do: Are models too skinny? (Can you find and give me synonyms for the word 'skinny'? , would you say this to your girlfriend/boyfriend? Is it a compliment or rather an insult?)

An expression to learn: The penny dropped

And finally a drama to read: The importance of being Earnest or Ernest?   (Who wrote this play? Where was he from? Where are we going this year for our study trip?)

  2. Now, in the summer almost all the men want to have a lean, strong and muscular body. For it, almost all them don't eat enough and some of them don't eat. There are diets that help you lose weight healthily, others help to win muscle mass and others help to digestive system,......

    In these years ago fashion has been growing in the world. In our society, people buy more clothes for fun. The fashion adverts that you can see in the TV are each time worse because in them are shown thinner models size zero. It can be a problem because many women want to have the same body that the models. And this is almost impossible because every one is as is. And also because in many shops only sell clothes for thin and size zero women.

    I think this word isn't an insult, it is synonymous of: lean, slim and lanky thin, lean, gaunt, scraggy and scrawny .

  3. More and more, the fashion world and the catwalk is open only for the too skinny people, especially women. And sometimes this isn't something nice.
    You look everywhere and you can see skinny women, and it can be a drama for some women. Because they want to be like them, the type of women that the publicity sells us. And it is almost impossibe because everyone is as it is. Even they feel groggy with their bodies. That difference makes you make you genuine.
    I agree with French MPs, if skinny people were forbidden at the catwalk, we would have more self-confident people and fewer eating problems as bulimia and more.

    I say this word as that person, and I think that is an insult. Synonyms of skinny, lean, lanky and slim.

    The Importance of Being Earnest is a play by Oscar Wilde written in 1895. He was from Dublin, Ireland, right where we are going next year for our study trip.
