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.

Holidays will always be holidays!!!

You may sometimes feel disappointed because your holidays are not as smashing and unforgettable as you would like. However, believe me holidays will always be holidays no matter how dull they may look. To begin with, they are a break in our routines and that will make us stronger when we go back to our routines. Then, and as long as no negative things affect you, it is time to do activities you cannot do during all the year long, such as tidying old papers or having a look at old photographs or videos or meeting friends or relatives you don't usually see or reading books for fun...


Anyway, here are some articles for you to read about the issue:

  2. This summer is being different. At the beginning of quarantine many people affirmed that no one could go outside until there was a vaccine. Fortunately the situation is not so extreme. We can go out with friends and family following the security measures.
    Wearing a face-mask is mandatory, everyone should wear one wherever they go. If you don't wear a face-mask you must pay a fine. Another security measure is to desinfect or wash your hands constantly. For example when we go shopping at the shop entrance we have to desinfect our hands with hydroalcoholic gel.

    Summer is the best season for many people, specially for teenagers. Teenagers start the new school year in September when days are shorter and they cannot go out at any time. They go back to studying every day and doing homework. Extra curricular activities start again and teenagers don't have enough time to spend with friends.
    During summer many people travel to other countries to discover new cultures and typical food from different countries.

    However, this summer is different, everything is more restricted because of coronavirus. There are outbreaks in many parts of Spain and we have to be careful and keep the safety distance.
    Many people have decided not to travel this year and in many cases teenagers are bored. Some activities to do when you are bored are watching tv series, doing sport or even study for next school year, advancing the activities.

    To sum up, summer is a great time to rest after a hard shool year and to spend time with friends and family.
