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.

We had a doubt today with the word 'police'. In most cases it can be considered as a collective noun and so it is plural, but sometimes it can also be considered as a singular noun. Check HERE!! ('police' in Linguee dictionary)

  1. The truth is that sometimes I thought more about giving up than moving forward, but I thought that this would end sooner than I thought and that I would see my family members again, give them hugs and kisses. For this reason I think less about giving up than moving forward.

  2. If we continue like this, we will surely be able to go through quarantine and finally go outside to be with friends and family. I would like to go on to phase 1 to see my relatives and be able to meet friends. My opinion is that you have to stay at home to avoid further infections and to be able to go out on the street.

  3. The truth is, I don't like it when we were quarantined. Some of us can't say goodbye to our grandparents because of quarantine, we couldn't do a funeral either. Actually these days is getting too long for some. I'd like to visit my family. But the best thing for everyone is to be careful to get this all over.

  4. Yes, we must not give up, we must resist and be aware of what we do, because we have to follow the rules at all times, we must respect the safety distance and if it is possible to have the mask on as long as possible when we leave, if that no hugs to friends and family, go out only the hours that correspond to us, always try to carry a disinfectant just in case, and if we do all this this summer we can go freely and we can return to normality and see if we are lucky a vaccine soon and we avoid a relapse.

  5. We are living in situations in which no one believed did not expect that we would live.
    You have to be patient and resist, since everything is improving little by little, some days better and others worse, but the situation is improving.

    We must be aware of what we do and so that this does not get worse we must comply with the rules such as the use of the mask, it is very important to put it on to avoid contagion to others and to avoid contagion to ourselves, the safety distances, the time slot, hand washing, carry disinfectant if you go for a walk, all these rules must be followed by all, and if we want to return to normal we must comply with them.
    If we do not follow these rules we will not advance in phase, there will be no progress in the situation and it may worsen.

    Have a vaccine out soon and we are back to normal.
