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.

  4. This year I want to learn more and pass all subject, but I know to get it I have to study hard, specialy math, becouse it is very dificult for my. For the future I want to be biologist becouse I love animals and plants, and there are many things we don't know about them. I think biologists can change the world and save it when they make amazing discoveries.

  5. For me the best goal in history was Maradona´s goal. This happened in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. Argentine was in the quarterfianls when they faced England, it was more than a match as they were at war for the Maldives. The best Maradona in history was seen in this World Cup. His goal was incredible, he dribbles to almost the entire team and beat the goalkeeper. With that goal they went to the semifinals. Argentine won this World Cup, which is the only one that has Maradona.

  6. Soccer is a great world sport, many happy moments lived for example when Spain won the South African World Cup in 2010. Ronaldinho was the best player in football history, but now Leo Messi has 34 titles of which 4 are Champion Leagues.

  7. Rafa Nadal was born on June 3rd , 1986. He is a very important tennis player from Spain. He started when he was 5 years old in Málaga. At the age of 10 he started playing out of Málaga. He has lived in Málaga ,since 1998. He is a very good tennis player for me because I like his playing style. He is my favorite .

  9. During the World Cup in Russia everyone talked about the falls of Neymar. Some said they had really given him strength and others that he was exaggerating. My father and I thought he was exaggerating because his falls were not credible.
    Once the World Cup was over he admitted in a interview that he had exaggerated. The most exaggerated foul was in the round of 16 against Mexico, and the opponent quietly goes to catch the ball and Neymar falls to the ground, he starts screaming and making pain gestures.
    Since leaving FC Barcelona I don´t like it, I think the team is better without him.

  11. Having goals is a very good way to become who you want to be in life.

    The goals are proposed by you, and you adjust them to achieve them, according to your future plans, and according to your possibilities.

    It is very important to set goals in your life, because without goals you would be a pessimistic person who doesn't care about his future.

    There are several types of goals, you can also visualize them in the short term or long term.

    In my case, my short-term goals are: take out the English and French B1, and take the A1 off the motorbike.

    And my long-term goals are: to have a criminologist career, buy a motorbike, buy a caravan for my mother and grandmother, and travel the world together.

    To achieve these goals, you have to work very hard, and be consistent. You also have to set goals, that you know that although they cost a lot you can achieve them.

    Love yourself, strive, you can get it if you believe in yourself and propose it!


  12. The Best Goal For Me:
    For me the best goal was that of Diego Armando Maradona, although it was a bit tricky since it hit him with his hand. This goal was on June 22, 1986. For me it was the best for being a bit funny.

  13. Rafa Nadal was born on June 3rd , 1986. He is a very important tennis player from Spain. He started when he was 5 years old in Málaga. At the age of 10 he started playing out of Málaga. He has lived in Majorca ,since 1998. He is a very good tennis player for me because I like his playing style. He is my favorite .

  14. Setting goals helps us to choose what we want in our life, where we want to be in the future and what steps we will take. What´s more, it helps us to move forward towards our future professional development.

    Every year, we set targets for making progress and developing at school/work. In my situation, every end of the year, I set a few goals for the following year. For example, I always resolve to study hard myself and get the highest grades possible. This year, in particular, I must make a big effort to achieve my goals because my final grades will help me to choose the university I want to attend when I finish school.

    Another personal goal that I set for this year is to practise more sports because I like being fit and athletic. Playing football is one of my favourites but this year I´ve decided to sign up in a gym to improve my strength and my physical apprearence.

    All in all, I think setting personal goals is an important process for our future, as it motivates ourselves to bring our dreams to reality.

  15. Personal goals are wishes that we resolve to carry out to improve ourselves and be better people. We usually put a limit time to get them ,about a year but, do you know that short-term goals and micro-resolutions also exist ?.

    When New Year comes , we usually set our goals and try to achieve them at the end of the following year but most of the time we don´t carry them out because we forget them and we stop doing them. So, the first thing you have to do is to change the way you think and, above all ,be motivated and be perseverant with what you do.

    But , if you are a person who forgets quickly, micro resolutions are for you. Micro resolutions are like long-term goals ,but easy things that you can do in a short period of time. You can do them in a month instead of a year, so this is such a good idea to motivate yourself and achieve more goals .

    In my opinion, personal goals are so important in life because they make us strive to what we want to achieve.

  16. Goals can help people to reach some purposes. They are very important because they help us to become who we want to be. Most people have goals, but not all people can complete them.

    There are two types of goals: one of them is short-term goals: this goals are the ones you want to reach in a short period of time(from a few days to a month or two). These goals are, for example, stop smoking or adopt a new habit like reading.

    The other type of goal is long-term goals: this goals are the ones you hope to reach in some months or even years. These goals can be: get in shape or learning a new language. We can include here the 'new year resolutions', which are goals we expect to reach that year.

    But, like I said, not all people can complete the goals they have. To solve this problem, they can divide these goals into different parts called micro goals. For example, if you think you can't learn a language because you can't do an hour of private classes every day, you can learn a few words every day and use them.

    In my case, I also have goals. For example, this year I wanted to read more so I am reading a book each month. I also want to draw more and doing some exercise so I'm doing that during the quarantine.

  17. For me the best goal in football history was Cristiano Ronaldo's goal.This goal was in Turin,2018.When Cristiano scored that goal, he was applauded by the Turin public. That year his team(Real Madrid)passsed to the final Champions and he win the final.

  18. There are some people in the new year who make a list of the wishes they want to achieve throughout the year.
    There are people who stop trying to do it and there are other types of people who do it in the long term, for example, saving for a trip and in the short term, which have a more immediate result, like cleaning the house thoroughly.
    In my opinion, it is very good to have the intention to improve and include new things in our life.
    I also set some goals for myself, like improving grades or exercising.

  19. Personal goals are one thing we have to set ourselves to achieve our goals. If we don’t mark it, one day we will ask. What important things have I achieved?, What would I have liked to have tried?

    The personal goal I propose to achieve is to pass English and I hope I can achieve it. Another goal I set was to practise sports.

    Every year we propose goals so that we can move for a future. The goals start with small steps in our day-to-day lives and we lead us to achieve our desires.

    Finally, I think the most valuable thing to set a goal is not to achieve the ultimate goal, but to enjoy during effort and learning.
