This is my first blog, and honestly I never thought I would have one.I've never had fotolog, or any of this type of stuff, because I don’t like telling my thinking to people I don’t know. But this experience was different, because it was obligatory, haha. It wasn’t that terrible as I thought , I even enjoy writing some entries! And also reading what my classmates wrote is very entertaining. 

However I think was a nice experience. 
And now, If I think I improve my English…mm.. I´m not sure but maybe I did.

I know I've exercised my writing, and thinking on English (even surely it's not perfect). I think that the blogs are a good way to learn English because you have to write, and look up some words on the dictionary. 
And you can also read and post on your classmates's blog, and always in English! haha. 

I think that it's a very complete way of learning English. This are the advantages of blogging, It've helped me to improve my English.

However I think that we would have at the request of correct our mistakes, like other instance of learning. Because I think if you don’t correct yours mistakes, you can repeat them! Finally I recognize that a disadvantage of blogging it's that some topics are kind of bored…. but not all of them.

I haven't favorite season, but I prefer the spring, but not because the colors of flowers or the romantic things… I prefer spring because it’s not extremely could, and not so hot.  I like spring too, because when I go to the zoo all of the animals have new babies, and they are cute! My favorites are the giraffe, and monkeys.  I like the spring, because is various, and this is entertaining.
Also, I like the rain and go out to walk, I like the winter (the rainy season) for this reason, but it’s so cold and this is unpleasant! I think that the weather in Chiloe it’s very well, because there are raining, and a few minute later go out the sun.  This is the perfect weather for my.  About the sunny.. It’s so hot, I hate it!!
However, I choose the spring like my favorite season, because it not so could, and not so hot. This is the balance of all of the seasons. I have to recognize that the trees looks very well with colors of the flowers, and the garden are beautiful too. Finally I think that each of the seasons have a good things, and thanks that there are many and various!

If I could choose one place of the world...
 I remember when I was a little girl and I go to school. In the schoolyard were different plays, like a slide, or something like that. When I remember this place always I think in one specific smell, Eucalyptus. This place always smells like this tree, and I remember like a great moment in my life. I think that I remember like this, because I was a little girl, and I don’t had any responsibility or a lot of worry. I remember that when we go out to play, sometime we play to jump rope and I was the winner. With my brother, both were the best in this play.
 I don’t remember this place very well except the smell. I`m not really sure that this is the best place of the world, but it`s a beautiful place in my memory. Maybe I could think in other place, like my bedroom (because I really like sleep), or the country where I go in holidays (I pass a lot of funny time in this place), but this place is the best in my memory now.

Some years ago my biggest dream was go to Italy.  I and my cousin wanted go to live in this country, study there and make our life. Today, I still want to go there, but first I want to visit my own country, Chile. I want to visit the north, and travel around it. I feel that is more important know the own country, like “start at home”.
I want to go to the north of Chile, like Atacama, San Pedro and look around the beauty of the Chilean landscape. My father, when was a little boy, lived in the south of Chile, in Los Angeles.  And at Holydays, I and my family go there (to the field, with my cousins and friends). In my life, I gone around many different cities and I really love the vegetation, and the lakes, even the people. For this reason I visited a little more the south than the north, but even so I want to go across all my country. I want it just a visiting, and in the future I want to live en Chiloe.

Of course that if I could go to Italy, this will be a beautiful and amazing travel, and it make me very happy, because it is a dream that I still want.

I live in..

I love this photo. It was taken by my friend Jorge Chacon, in February of 2012.
I like it because it shows the magic of Chiloe. In this photo are the typical “palafitos” of this place. I love the form of the homes, color of the trees and all the thing that you can see. My friend took it when we just arrived to Chiloe, of holydays. All in this island is beautiful like this photo, the nature and the people; they have something to make it different and lovely (flowers and birds, are beautiful too). In Chiloe all of the houses are of different colors, and it was done of wood.

 After this trip I want to live in this place. In some years more I will go to Chiloe, to live in a little yellow house. This photo represents the magic of the south, the tranquility and peace that it can give you.

I don’t see a lot of TV, but when I see Dr House I can’t stop seeing it. It`s a really strange phenomenon. Honestly I’m not a fanatic because; I have not seen all the chapters or seasons.
This TV show is about a Doctor who is a very special man. I think that all of you have seen it some time, and know the story (in a hospital with patients who have strange illnesses).
Honestly I don’t know why I see it, but maybe because the personality of Dr House makes me have fun. All time you are waiting for what he will say or do. Sometimes I spend some hours seeing it and I don’t realize.  One of the things that I like of Dr House is that it is realistic but creative at the same time.
Finally I have to recognize that I don’t know when it is on.
I see it only by chance.

Well, if I can choose a piece of technology I really don´t know what to say. Because I`m not a technological person. I prefer the simple stuff, for example I prefer reading a book instead of a computer, or writing a paper with a pencil. It´s basic, but I really prefer the old things.
Anyway, and although I don’t like it I have to recognize that I use technology. Microwave is one of the things that I hate but love at the same time. I think that food is bland when you use the microwave, but in some cases it´s necessary (to win time or whatever). This is my problem with the technology.
Also, I have to say that I do not make an effort to learn how to use it. I know that the technology can be really fun but I don’t know this world.

Today I will tell you about an exhibition. This is a play by Du Soleil called “Los náufragos de la loca esperanza”. I saw it the last year, in the Estación Mapocho.
The story is about a group of people that start to make a silent movie based on the novel by Julio Verne, “Los náufragos de Jonathan”. The entire workers of a restaurant were the protagonists in the movie.
But I did not only like the story. This play has a magic in the way it develops.  The characters in all of them, with their makeup and the wardrobe were wonderful.  I really like all of this because it has a lot of energy, it was an extravagant exhibition. It was four hours of very beautiful music and art.

(part of my life)

All started in September in 1992 when I was born. I live in Santiago with my parents, and I have a brother who is one year older than me, Mauricio. My brother was very jealous and we fought a lot. With time my parents had another baby and he is my little brother, Juan Luis. So, I’m the one in the middle, and the only woman. In some cases this is good, but most of the cases I have to be like a mother with them.

When I was a little girl I practiced Artistic Gymnastic, and I wanted to be a professional (but I’m here, studying psychology… and it`s not so bad).  I was at Carmela Carvajal School (like teacher Daniela). In the school I played Volleyball and I was a sports person. The last year I was  going to another university, but as you know I’m here now and I’m very happy.
I’ have two dogs, Perla (who is the mother), and Betina (the daughter). Both are very beautiful and friendly.
