 I 
‘I admire the brave,
those who fall, cry, get up,
and continue without looking back’, she said.


 II 
She realized how nice it is to know a person
whom we have met for the first time,
and that person becomes closer to her heart.


 III 
If I never said goodbye,
it is because I did not want you to go away.

MANAGING MONEY AND APPLYING FOR JOB AS ACADEMIC SUBJECTS

BY LOURDES MEDIALDEA, #BTO1D
The ordinary academic subjects, such as Maths or Languages, are the most important things to learn that would help you in your professional life. I totally agree with that. If you do not learn this basic skill you could never go into a college and have a degree. And also, to join a college, you need to have such high marks. 

On the other hand, we all know that, when we start "the adult life", like living alone and having our own bank account, you realize how much you really need some help from someome who has done all these things before. I know that teaching that subject might be a bit difficult. 

To sum up, it would be great to have a subject like that, and it would help us a lot, but we probably would have less hours of other subjects, such as PE or Art.

 I 
I don´t want to lose you.I´m not ready yet. I'll never be ! I don´t even want to say goodbye to you. Stay a bit more. Stay granny, stay.


 II 
There wasn´t excuse for not trying. He felt confident. He was prepared. He truly was prepared. He truly wished it. But, she never came back...

 III 
Always looking for something better. Always looking for something else. Always looking for the money to pay that 'something'.

#SAFATINIES BY ELISA GONZÁLEZ #ESO4C

 I 
The girl decided to learn
how to love herself
because nobody loved her.

 II 
"I will always love you", said him
remembering other promises that he never did.

 III 
I thought nothing could go worse
untill I realised that there weren't any cookies.

 IV 
A bay separated us,
so we built a bridge.

 V 
In tears, he gaved her
the best present he could give to her:
let her go.

when he saw he was sleeping alone.

 I 
What would have happened
if you hadn't chosen that option?
How different things would have been!

 II 
That girl stole his hearth.
Since the first moment
she took him in
and he didn't realize of it.

 III 
Even setting off really early to avoid the traffic,
we couldn't do anything with that drunk driver.

 IV 
When the bomb went off,
our lives were destroyed.
We had to move in inmediately.
Just doing our new house up
was the moment which the kids enjoyed.

 V 
Friends were the only thing
he needed through his life
because everything dissappeared
apart from them.

#SAFATINIES BY ANA RODRÍGUEZ #BTO2A

 I 
He spoke to everybody,
but no body spoke with him. 
He helped everybody,
but no one said "thank you" to him.
Maybe the problem was
that he wasn't alive.

 II 
The child thought it was only a game,
but the truth is something more serious...

 III 
The moment he believed in horror stories
was the moment he understood
his mum's death.

 IV 
She only reads one letter.
Always the same letter.
The last letter he wrote to her.

 V 
He looked tired.
Maybe because of the memories
that came back to stay in his mind.

 I 
The moment
when your grandmother gives you money
without telling your mother.
It seems that she is doing something ilegal.


 II 
My mother
left the meat on the window
because it was frozen,
and when she got home,
it was gone.

When I decide to ride my bike,
and the tire is always flat.

When the clock stopped,

Like oxygen for humans,
like CO2 for plants...
That boy couldn't live
without battery for his mobile phone.

And the winter began again.
His sweatshirt and her shampoo
were the perfect excuse to meet.

 III 
Carpe Diem!
...and they finished without any job.

YOUNG PEOPLE SHOULD READ CLASSIC BOOKS

BY BEATRIZ ARMILLAS, #ESO3D
Currently, young people read many ´best-sellers´ and they forget to read the most important books. Present ´best-sellers´ are about love or about a fantasy world. They deal with shallow topics, and they´ve got a very simple writing normally.

In my opinion, young people should read classic books or awarded books. Why? First of all, because they´ve got a crafted writing, and people can learn a lot of vocabulary or expressions from them. Secondly, because there are many important books that make you think about some topic, like humanity, power, society, relationships… They influence you along all your life. Finally, because a lot of ´best-sellers’ are based on great classic stories. For example, current ´dystopias´ (books that are about a vision of a society with very bad life conditions in the future) are based on the classic ´Brave new world´ (by Aldous Huxley), considered the first ´dystopia´.

As a conclusion, teenagers ought to read world literature books. They give us a grateful knowledge. So, what are they waiting for?

COMPULSORY FOREIGN LANGUAGE CLASSES

BY MARIANA MÁRQUEZ #BTO2B

Nowadays, in my country, like in the majority of the whole countries, the study of a foreign language is compulsory in primary and secondary school, and I agree with that.

First of all, learning a foreign language will be helpful for our working life. On the one hand, because we would be able to work in another country if we did not find a job in our country. On the other hand, this would be an advantage over the other candidates for a job. Furthermore, if we know more than one language, it would be easier to make a booking in a hotel, asking for an address, or renting a car if we travel abroad on holidays. Moreover, it is thought that people who speak several languages are more open-minded and, as a result, they are able to understand the other points of view.

In conclusion, because of all these reasons, I believe studying a foreign language has to be part of people's education.

TECHNOLOGY, MY #OPINION

 By CLAUDIA PAREJO, #BTO2B
Nowadays, technology is present in a high level in human´s life. The question is, is it an advantage or disadvantage for humans?

Technology has had a massive development in the past few years; it has become an essential part of our everyday life, and it has also noticeably helped people increasing their life expectancy, curing diseases, and improving the quality of life, but the misuse people are giving to it is causing the upcoming of their destruction. This destruction does not occur only in humans, but also in the environment. We can see it in the environment in the massive pollution that new technologies bring to nature. As for the destruction of human beings, who are increasingly dependent on new technologies, such as in the mobile phone case, whose use is essential for people from all ages these days.

To my mind, new technologies are important to move forward, but humans have to find the best possible use of it, avoiding damage to nature and protecting themselves from it.
In conclusion, on the one hand, I think that new technologies are crucial today, and therefore, people should investigate to make progresses in this sector. On the other hand, I believe that people should learn to make a  good use of them. We must protect nature, because if all of this disapears, that is all we have.

CELEBRITIES INFLUENCE ON YOUNG PEOPLE

BY MARIANA MÁRQUEZ #BTO2B
Nowadays, we live in a world where, especially thanks to social MEDIA, we can know what all our FAVOURITE stars are doing daily. Are young people being influenced by celebrities because of that? In my opinion, of course they are.
First of all, we can take the example of their wardrobe because we are inspired by singers looks in their videoclips, or by actors in galas to be always up with the lastest trends.
Although we can name celebrities like Miley Cyrus, whose provocative twerking has been copied by girls all around the world.
Moreover, they launch styles, like the one of the "selfie", which started with the photo taken at the Oscars ceremony in which we can see actors like Brad Pitt or Jennifer Laurence. Besides, in other occasions it can do us join supportive MOVEMENTS, as the ice bucket challenge to promote awareness of the disease ALS, or the recent "je suis Charlie" (I'm Charlie) for the defense of the right of expression freedom.
In conclusion, it is true that celebrities influence young people nowadays, so we have to choose our role model carefully.

EXTREME RELIGIOUS, MY OPINION

BY DANIEL DE ASÍS #BTO2C
Last 7 January, there was a horrible attack in the office of Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Two masked-men killed twelve employees of the magazine. The terroristS were muslim origin. Possibly, they were anNoyed because of the publication of many drawings making fun of Alá, the muslim god.
In my opinión, I think that we can't be MUCH too extreme. You can be religious , but you should be tolerant.
On this case, it is very hard because you can't kill anybody for doing his job, that in this case it is drawing in a magazine.
Muslim are very radical with their religion. They always have wars because of religious issues.
The government should take action in that events. We can't allow people who make the religion a reason to murder.
In conclusion, it hasn't any justification. Government should make PEOPLE aware about the values of people's life.

THE CONSPIRACY OF THE ELECTRONIC RUBBISH

 BY NACHO GUERRERO #BTO2C

As time goes by, technology is even more present in one'S everyday life. Every year, new models of all technology ranges come up, and the old ones are replaced.

So, where do all these old devices end up? 

Even though there are strict rules about exportation, the electronic rubbish mostly endS up in Ghana or China. The most developed countries produce about 50 million tons of these residues, which the 75% of them dissapear ilegally. Furthermore, just in the UE, one third of electronic rubbish is recycled appropriately.

Therefore, the 'lost' rubbish is accumulated in poor countries, like Ghana, where toxic chemicals of all of those old and broken devices are a huge health risk. Inhabitants bet there lives just for some materials they can find like gold, silver, neodymium... These risky jobs and the illegal exportation from developed countries conform a bigger business than drugs.

Finally, speaking for myself, we should think more about getting a new smartphone every year, because this consumerist tendence we all have is destroying and polluting the Earth, our home.
