WHAT I LOVE AND HATE ABOUT THE WEATHER IN MY TOWN

BY VICTOR BAZO #BTO1D
We all hate something about the weather of our country, but at the same time, there is always something you love about your weather, though.

As far as I am concerned, it is difficult to me just to find a nice thing to say about the weather where I live. In fact, I really have to make an effort to find out something decent. At least, winters in here are not chilly at all, so it is fantastic, because there is no need to put on many clothes to go outside. During winter, I do not even catch a cold when I go out dressed in short sleeves.

On the other hand, if you ask me about what I hate, I will say I could write an entire book dedicated to it. However, I will choose one thing I do really hate. Imagine you are in July, and you are free as it is summer holidays, so you decide to watch a film at home… But It is impossible! If you do not have an air conditioner, I am totally sure it will give you a heat stroke.

EDUCATION IN OUR SOCIETY

By RAFAEL BUENO #BTO1D
Nowadays, education is highly an important point in our society. If we compare education on these days to the education there was in a close past (about sixty years before), we notice that it has changed a lot and, thankfully, it has become much better.

But everything changes if we compare it to the education in other countries. Most Spanish people are happy with their education, but is it so good?

From my point of view, the main disadvantage of our instruction is the method, which becomes extremely boring sometimes because it is not practical at all.

On the other hand, many times this abuse of theory means a better preparation for the future, and this is the reason why people from Spain are wanted in many countries. 

All in all, I think that education in Spain should improve and stop being so methodic, and that way, more people will be encouraged to study.

HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE

LUCÍA RON #BTO1D
In Spain, homosexual marriage was legalized in 2005 after the Netherlands and Belgium. It was an extraordinary step forward for society in the field of culture and human rights. But even today, we are still homophobic, and we do not accept this marital bond at all. 

By my part, I think that all people have to be happy, and this implies being free and equal before the law. Laws should be for everyone, and sexual orientation should not matter. If we talk about the issue of having children, it is not necessary that they are a man and a woman. 

On the one hand, we have adoption of children, and on the other hand, we have assisted reproduction (in the case of women). That's why no one can make the excuse of the children to defend themselves. Marriage is civil and not something religious. Each religion then evaluates whether it accepts it or not.

Finally, I want to say that there have been older people (from ancient times) that have accepted this, so that's why, with more reason, we should do it. We all must be happy whatever we are and however we think. Remember that you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough, so be happy and let the others also be.

#TINYSTORIES

 By GABRIEL MARTÍNEZ, #BTO1D

OLD ENEMIES
James and Ingrid met themselves one night. They started a fight. Ingrid took her cane and charged towards James at 1 m/ph. James tried to dodge, but his back hurt. Then, they decided to stop. They were 80 years old.

BET YOUR LIFE
The croupier was talking with the man, who bet the future of his dad. If he won, he would become wealthy. The dice came out odd, so he won. Then, the man decided to bet his whole life.

THE PAINTER
The boy loved girls with beautiful legs and leather clothes. He wanted a kind girl, but that was impossible to paint. When the painter finished, the boy took the girl out of the painting.

MEAL
I ate a talking bread once. He asked me to do it. I say ‘he’ because he was called Paul. It was delicious, but I felt so bad for him, and I made a funeral the following day.

TRAIN STATION
When the train arrived, I had already been there for one hour. People left the train, but I couldn’t see my husband. It’s been 10 years, and I’m still going to the train station, but he doesn’t come back.

THE BOY AND THE CATGIRL
The boy asked why she had cat ears. The girl answered that she was like that. After moving her tail, she asked why the boy had a pig nose. The boy got offended, but the girl was also offended.

A WEIRD CONVERSATION
Two men were talking. The first one asked what color corn was. The other man answered that it was blue. Then, the first one said: ‘You are blind’, and the second one replied: ‘You are deaf’.

THAT STRANGE FAIRY
Two fairies were talking. One said that humans were very bad. The other one liked them. The first argued that they hunted fairies, doing them horrible things. The second one agreed, but she loved that.

BREATHTAKING EXPERIENCE
I woke up and went to my sister’s bedroom. She wasn’t breathing. I was so scared. I touched her, and she was cold. Luckily, I remembered that my sister died two years ago, and we had dressed her doll like her.

THE LOST
When I was writing these stories, I was thinking about all the words I had to delete. Today, I found a paper. It was a story written with all the removed words. I think that was like a farewell letter.

MUSIC

ELENA MONGE #BTO1D
Music is everything that surrounds us. The music is rhymed verses mixed with instruments. The music can transmit emotions, and it also helps us discover unknown sensations.
Today, there are many singers and musicians. This is good because the music is culture. But, I see a big problem. This is that the music is very expensive, and there are people who can't spend money on an album, so they get it illegally.
There are many people that live from music, and the music is good all around the world. I need music for everything; for example, to cook. The music has taught that bad days can change into good days. Everything is more beautiful with music. My favourite genre is rap and Spanish pop, but I also like the latin music. Muy favourite songs now are La Bikina and El Club de Fan de Jonh Boy. The first one is a latin song, and the second one is a Spanish pop-rock song. I also like 90’s music.
