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.

  1. Almost all European countries are on alert for recent terrorist attacks.
    On the one hand it is very dangerous to travel to travel to Europe and America and Africa. Lots surveillance in many airports and especially watch backpacks could be forgotten because of terrorists and an airport is a place where are many people.
    Moreover the terrorists want we are afraid and that we must not to do.
    I think high school students who want to go on the trip should do so without fear because the police of all countries is very good.

  2. One of the nicest things about life is the smile of people, when a person smiles or laughs, she's saying is being happy.
    On the one hand, being with family is always a raison to laugh and have fun, and that helps people are closer and they want more. When we met the whole family especially on special occasions, we always laugh many telling anecdotes that have gone, especially my grandparents and my uncles.
    Moreover, doctors say that laughter is necessary for good health and I sometimes see in the media that there is laughter therapy courses to help people to laugh at herself to forget the problems of life.
    In short, I reckon that laughing is good for physical and mental health, and even doctors say many face muscles are exercised and sleep better after, so, have to laugh more and be happier!

  3. Brussel is the capital of Belgium and he biggest city in Belgium. It is also the principal administrative establishment of the European Union. Brussel is perfectly communicated by train to the principal European capitals, for example: London, Paris and Amsterdam. In Brussel there are big international companies. Brussel is dangerous if you have got a sweet tooth, because in Brussel they make sweets that you can’t resist, for example the scent of emboss.

    Belgium is situated in the European northwest. Belgium is a multilinguistic state with three official languages: Dutch, French and a bit of German. It is one of the members of the European Union, which principal institutions are located in the country and there are other international organizations, as the NATO.

    I think that is normal Belgium was on high alert because of terrorism, because there are yihadists that can commit an outrage and a lot of people can die. In my opinion, this protection will avoid the die of people.
