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.

What was the best and the worst of 2016???

What was the best and the worst song, film, athlete... thing of 2016?


For instance, at school for me the best thing was the fact that we came back safe and sound from Dublin and that 7 of my 4º ESO passed their B1 exams at the Official Language School and the worst thing is that not all the students I had in mind entered these exams. I hope they'll do it this year and that my B1 students have the best of lucks in their B2 exams.

However, the best thing of all is that I still have dreams and hopes and ready for new challenges. As well, with regard to this, the worst thing is that I can't convince as many people as I would like.


And here's one of my greatest discoveries in the web. Watch it and give me your opinion in this cycling journey from Edinburgh to Skye >>>>

  1. In my opinion 2016 had many bad things, for example the war in Syria got worse, the situation of the Syrian refugees was very bad since they played with them as toys, Spain had a bad situation with the government since it took almost a year to form The government, the number of sexist violence increased and child poverty exceeds more than three million children affected by it, as well as terrorist attacks in Europe or racial crimes in the United States. Another of the bad things that had 2016 was the victory of Donald Trump as president of the United States, since he is a person, racist, macho and homophobic, all this means the opposite of progress for what the new American president represents disaster and involution of the country.But not all of 2016 was bad, it also had its good things although I can not find them I hope that this 2017 will be a better year than 2016, that the economy, education and everything better, that the evictions stop, that poverty will fall but above all that people are more aware of the situation in which we live and try to do What you can in your hands to change.

  2. For me 2016 has been good and bad things. The first bad moment was the attack suffered in Paris, killing with the live of eighty-four peoples. This was the beginning of the worst things this year. The attacks suffered by the Islamic were constant during this year. In USA there was surprise with the victory of Donald Trump (considered racist, macho and homophobic person) as president of the United States overcoming to Hillary Clinton. In the sport has not gone our year, being eliminated in quarters of final of the euro 2016 of France.

    Even so, 2016 has also had good moments. Not much in general; but in my personal life I considered a good year for had a good moments specially in summer where I passed every days with my friends in the beach and playing football. For me has been one of the best years of my life.


  3. This 2016 has been the worst year of many. For example the war in Syria, the bombings in which millions have died, Donal Trump wins Hilary Clinton, there have been many women murdered by their husbands, many people have disappeared ... On the other hand there have been some good things like for example new advances in chemotherapy treatments have increased pancreatic cancer survival from 16% to 27%, the famous ice cube challenge served to finance advances in research against ALS, Pokémon Go made us all a little crazy, But also served for a children's hospital to encourage children in the gym to exercise through the game ...

    I hope that for this 2017 is different and there are more good things than bad. That the crisis, the lack of work, the education, the health increase in positive. Let them stop the evictions, that they have not attacked and that women don't die because of their husbands.

  5. In my opinion 2016 has been too many bad things and very few good things. In 2016 has been ocurred bad things in politic , sport etc.. For example in politic:

    Donald Trump was win the elections for the president of USA, although people thought and said that Donald Trump is racist , male chauvinist , homophobic and a greedy person , He was the winner.I think that the new American president represents disaster and involution of the country. In Spain we stayed
    10 months of caretaker government , because there are a president with Majority of votes.

    The refugee crisis because there are wars , there are too many bad things , in sport too for example Johan Cruyff was die because he had cancer , the accident of the Chapecoense and the elimination in quarters of final of the euro 2016 of France.
    I think that the 2016 was a bad year .

  6. In my opinion, 2016 has been like every other year with its good things and it's bad things. If we were to metion the bad moments Syria would be one of them, it hasn't had its best year since many people are trying to scape from it. The victory of Donald Trump in USA, since he is a homophobic racist and male chauvinist. this year has also taken away from us one of our favourite artists like David Bowie or Alan Rickman, as well as scientists like Vera Rubin and Ray Tomlinson. another bad thing from 2016 that people have talked a lot about, but it has no importance for me, is Brad divorcing Angelina.
    good things about 2016 would be that they have found a cure which is 100% effective against ebola, giant pandas has stopped being in danger of extinction, and The expectancy of surviving pancreas cancer has passed from 16% to 27% thanks to new advances in science and technology.
    I hope this 2017 only will bring is good news and happiness. I hope all the bad in the world disappears, wars, poverty, violence, crisis.. etc

  8. Edinburgh is a great and beautiful city. It´s the capital of Scotland. I went there last year and there where lots of fantastic buildings and a lot of monuments. My favourite one was the palace. It was a great and interesting place with a great cannon that shoots every day at twelve o´clock. In Edinburgh there were lots of plants and a lot of trees. There were hills full of green and soft grass. Parks are also wonderful and they are very clean and quiet. There are also a lot of rabbits along the streets. I love it!
