Me, you, us. I think all of us.

You are beautiful the way you are, and that makes you the most beautiful person on this planet.

I like the idea of discovering spots in Hong Kong that I’ve never been.

Hong Kong is wonderful the way it is.

I wish I could live forever in this magical country.

Somehow I feel that I belong in this place.

I am an adventurous.

I like the idea of discovering spots in Hong Kong that I’ve never been.

Hong Kong is a labyrinth full of little treasures.

It is a pleasure to be here.

That’s why I am an adventurous on this story.

I love the idea of taking pictures to capture the good momentums.

I love the idea of keeping memories.

I keep these remembrances on my storehouse of memory.

I like to keep them with me. I found them beautiful.

Hey angel. What does beauty mean to you? 

Hey angel,

It’s me again, Julia. I hope you are doing great! If you are new… Welcome on board! Pleased to meet you. Thank you for reading Beyondjuliaswords. I hope this is the kind of themes that you enjoy reading.

B.E.A.U.T.Y

Your beauty should not be defined just for your physical appearance. “We are” like a book cover. Strangers only see the outside which is a tiny representation of us. They will never know the way we are unless they get to know the person.

There two different types of people. The ones that look beautiful physically but they can be arrogant. On the other hand, there are people who don’t pretty physically but they have an excellent heart. What I am trying to say throuhg this post is that your beauty should be more defined for your personality than your physical appearance.

If someone’ personality is outstanding. Then, they will win more hearts than who don’t. The main purpose of this post is not to compare and contrast two extreme identities. Basically, it is to make understand the society that beauty has to do more for the way you are as a person than just about your physical traits.

Have a wonderful rest of the day! I hope to see around, and stay as long as you like!

The meaning of hands’ gestures

Hey angel,

Thank you for passing by. it is wonderful to see you again, and I hope you are doing great! Stay as long as you like. You are more than welcome to stay.

Back in High School time. I made one of the projects based on the ways people express their emotions through hands’ gestures. For me, It was a very interesting topic, and I have enjoyed doing research, and I come up with an idea of sharing it with you.

For me, in order to create a successful project, I have been observing the ways people express their emotions through hands. Besides the observations, I have been interrogating them to understand in depth my project. Some of the major questions were “What do you think about your hands” “would you be able to live without your hands?

Could you guess what was the most common reply to these questions?
“I won’t be able to live without my hands because I haven’t the faintest idea of the way I could express myself” It was shocking because it tells me that they will give up, and it is quite sad to think about it. Putting this aside, have you ever question to yourself “Which hands’ gestures might be offensive in some countries?”. For example, in Thailand touching other people’s heads or pointing to someone with an open hand are seen as bad manners so pay attention to it or get some knowledge before going to a country. It is always good to be aware of it.

In order to create my pieces of art, I have been influenced by different places around the world and people such as my friends and some family members. In addition, I was inspired by well-known artists like Henry Moore ( 1898-1986) who created a series of artworks called “The Artist’s Hand, 1979” when he created these artworks he was going through a rough time. He used to say “Hands can convey so much” “They can beg or refuse, take or give, be open or clenched, show content or anxiety. They can be young or old, beautiful or deformed”. When Henry created his pieces he has had a fascination for hands, he felt that he could express himself. Me ( Julia ) as an artist of this project I am not considered a person who has a fascination for hands but I like to see the way people express their emotions. I believe that people’s hands play an important role in our daily lifestyle. For instance, humans’ hands help us to manipulate things, communicate emotions verbally and through our body language. Some of the common actions some people do are biting their nails, this might show they are nervous or stress. Perhaps, this action is transformed into a new habit for them. Sometimes, it becomes a struggle to stop doing it.

One of my artwork was a photo of a couple which resemblance love. The fact that one of them wear a ring is already indicating to my audiences they married. I believe that love can be expressed in many varieties of ways. It can be transmitted through a relationship with your partner ( girlfriend/boyfriend ), friendship, love between a mother towards his child or vice versa. Basically, to any family member. Including material things like tattoos.

A random story

Again, an icy dawn on this distant planet, a desolately cold and uninhabited planet. There is no form of life, no trees, no animals, no people, only immense footprints covered by ice and that hides in each of us a desperately longed for desire and that perhaps illuminates our hope of finding a source of survival. Winding mounds such as we have never seen in our existence and sculpted mountains that evoke our imagination to the idea that perhaps one day there was life here as well. There was an intense and painful cold, every breath seems to get stuck in our lungs with such as an intensity that we thought we will die, it hurt us until our own breath. Only one thought keeps us on track, there is no turning back, our lives depend on this planet, on this dilated but beautiful and nearby moon that threatens the great white man sculpted in the mountain, but that sends us enough energy to continue. The moon was as bright as a million fireflies around us. We have been walking for two months in the middle of nowhere, in absolute silence, it envelops everything.

At first, the silence was sweet, intoxicating, almost hypnotizing. Today after sixty days the silence has become black and full of despair, our efforts are not bearing fruit, just seeing that mountain in the form of man controlling an inhuman being illuminates our day with a perhaps….this mountain is extremely different from the others, there was not only a human figure but it was in motion, in a gesture to control a terrifying being. The human being with angry and pleasant expression at the same time had perhaps achieved his goal. The crystal floor under our tired feet reflects our bodies covered by the special suits thanks to which we manage to survive in these extreme conditions, but these crystalline floors also reflect our smaller backpacks showing us that every day is more critical to all of us. We all come from the earth, from different parts of the world on that wonderful planet, now this planet is destroyed by the sun.

November 5, 2013

We have traveled in a ship prepared to preserve a small group of humans from that destruction and start from scratch on another planet. We have been traveling for a year now, we have been using our resources in the best way possible, however, our body mass has been reduced by thirty-five percent. We had begun to rationalize our food by trying to help us to resist until we found the right place to build our base. This planet is ours, it’s our last choice. The components of the settlement are nineteen people. There are a variety of ethnicities such as white, Asian, and African. There are unmarried people and young people who tried to survive in this isolated place after the catastrophe of the planet Earth.

Photography techniques. Part II

Ty a close-up shot.
Reverse one picture of yours.

Quote: “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”— Ansel Adams

Part II: To​ ​what​ ​extent​ ​is​ ​traditional​ ​methods​ ​of​ ​teaching​ ​relevant​ ​to​ ​the​ ​21st​ ​century​ ​in Hong​ ​Kong​ ​and​ ​Spain​ ​?

Perspective​ ​A

Oxford​ ​dictionary​ ​defines​ ​rote​ ​learning​ ​as​ ​“the​ ​process​ ​of​ ​learning​ ​something​ ​by repeating​ ​it​ ​until​ ​you​ ​remember​ ​it​ ​rather​ ​than​ ​by​ ​understanding​ ​the​ ​meaning​ ​of​ ​it”​ ​.​ ​In​ ​rote learning​ ​there​ ​are​ ​several​ ​advantages.The​ ​teaching​ ​style​ ​is​ ​teacher​ ​driven​ ​rather​ ​than​ ​being led​ ​by​ ​the​ ​students’​ ​questions.​ ​During​ ​the​ ​class​ ​students​ ​are​ ​more​ ​passive​ ​in​ ​learning​ ​due​ ​to the​ ​teaching​ ​style,​ ​the​ ​teacher​ ​feeds​ ​learners​ ​with​ ​information​ ​which​ ​requires​ ​to​ ​think​ ​and understand​ ​less.​ ​This​ ​type​ ​of​ ​learning​ ​gives​ ​quick​ ​results​ ​and​ ​it​ ​is​ ​tested​ ​by​ ​immediate assessments.​ ​According​ ​to​ ​the​ ​book​ ​called​ ​“Improve​ ​Exam​ ​Results:​ ​Tested​ ​Technique​ ​for Passing​ ​Exams​ ​or​ ​Tests​ ​By​ ​Dr.​ ​Subhash​ ​Thaker​ ​affirms​ ​that​ ​“​ ​rote​ ​learning​ ​can​ ​be​ ​observed in​ ​preparing​ ​quickly​ ​for​ ​exams,​ ​a​ ​technique​ ​which​ ​may​ ​be​ ​colloquially​ ​referred​ ​to​ ​as “​cramming​”.​ ​An​ ​example​ ​is​ ​when​ ​a​ ​someone​ ​is​ ​required​ ​to​ ​learn​ ​the​ ​script​ ​for​ ​a​ ​play​ ​when​ ​it must​ ​be​ ​performed,​ ​this​ ​type​ ​of​ ​learning​ ​is​ ​more​ ​likely​ ​that​ ​the​ ​brain​ ​does​ ​not​ ​keep​ ​the information​ ​for​ ​long​ ​term-memory​ ​because​ ​the​ ​topic​ ​which​ ​the​ ​student​ ​is​ ​learning​ ​is​ ​not connected​ ​with​ ​meaningful​ ​and​ ​real​ ​life​ ​situations.​ ​A​ ​second​ ​great​ ​example​ ​of​ ​this knowledge​ ​is​ ​when​ ​a​ ​student​ ​need​ ​to​ ​memorise​ ​the​ ​multiplication​ ​and​ ​periodic​ ​table​ ​in​ ​order to​ ​remember​ ​the​ ​sequences​ ​and​ ​the​ ​symbols.

Rote​ ​learning​ ​is​ ​based​ ​on​ ​a​ ​traditional​ ​style,​ ​and​ ​goes​ ​back​ ​to​ ​the​ ​original behaviourist​ ​theory​ ​which​ ​is​ ​learned​ ​through​ ​operant​ ​and​ ​classical​ ​conditions.​ ​For​ ​example, in​ ​primary​ ​education​ ​the​ ​teachers​ ​gives​ ​rewards​ ​to​ ​those​ ​students​ ​who​ ​behave​ ​correctly,​ ​this means​ ​respect​ ​between​ ​each​ ​other,​ ​raising​ ​the​ ​hands​ ​when​ ​someone​ ​wants​ ​to​ ​talk,​ ​being​ ​quiet in​ ​class,​ ​etc.​ ​​​Sometimes,​ ​​​teachers​ ​also​ ​use​ ​conditioning​ ​to​ ​punish​ ​their​ ​students​ ​through positive​ ​and​ ​negative​ ​reinforcements.​ ​A​ ​students​ ​environment​ ​plays​ ​a​ ​big​ ​role​ ​influencing​ ​on their​ ​learnt​ ​behaviour​ ​this​ ​is​ ​an​ ​example​ ​of​ ​traditional​ ​education​ ​in​ ​Spain.

Perspective​ ​B:

According​ ​to​ ​Dictionary.com​ ​inquiry​ ​learning​ ​is​ ​defined​ ​as​ ​“the​ ​act​ ​of​ ​inquiring​ ​or​ ​of seeking​ ​information​ ​by​ ​questioning;​ ​interrogation.”​ ​It​ ​helps​ ​the​ ​students​ ​to​ ​be​ ​part​ ​of​ ​their own​ ​learning.​ ​Also,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​helping​ ​the​ ​students​ ​to​ ​develop​ ​their​ ​critical​ ​thinking​ ​and​ ​increase their​ ​creativity.​ ​Inquiry​ ​allows​ ​the​ ​students​ ​to​ ​learn​ ​subjects​ ​or​ ​topics​ ​in​ ​depth​ ​on​ ​the environment​ ​where​ ​the​ ​learners​ ​can​ ​feel​ ​comfortable​ ​to​ ​share​ ​ideas.​ ​When​ ​the​ ​topics​ ​are related​ ​to​ ​real​ ​life​ ​situation​ ​this​ ​encourage​ ​and​ ​motivated​ ​students​ ​to​ ​be​ ​more​ ​interested​ ​in​ ​a topic​ ​which​ ​it​ ​makes​ ​the​ ​learning​ ​much​ ​more​ ​easier.​ ​In​ ​order​ ​to​ ​make​ ​the​ ​students​ ​think, teachers​ ​ask​ ​specific​ ​questions​ ​such​ ​as​ ​“What​ ​do​ ​you​ ​know​ ​about…?​ ​“What​ ​questions​ ​do​ ​you have​ ​about…”​ ​“What​ ​would​ ​you​ ​like​ ​to​ ​learn​ ​more​ ​about?​ ​Why?​ ​(Wilson​ ​&​ ​Win​ ​Jan,​ ​2009).

Students​ ​are​ ​more​ ​likely​ ​to​ ​retain​ ​information​ ​if​ ​it​ ​is​ ​learnt​ ​through​ ​taking​ ​ownership after​ ​their​ ​own​ ​learning,​ ​they​ ​develop​ ​a​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​responsibility​ ​and​ ​curiosity​ ​based​ ​on research​ ​of​ ​a​ ​topic.​ ​Students​ ​learn​ ​best​ ​when​ ​the​ ​issue​ ​is​ ​meaningful,​ ​this​ ​means​ ​that​ ​it​ ​is related​ ​to​ ​their​ ​experiences​ ​and​ ​it​ ​is​ ​more​ ​fun​ ​to​ ​learn.​ ​Also,​ ​inquiry​ ​allows​ ​collaboration​ ​to the​ ​students​ ​which​ ​is​ ​teamwork.​ ​Collaboration​ ​is​ ​important​ ​on​ ​inquiry​ ​based​ ​learning​ ​because students​ ​can​ ​teach​ ​and​ ​learn​ ​from​ ​others​ ​through​ ​communication,​ ​and​ ​it​ ​“Helps​ ​develop deeper​ ​understanding​ ​of​ ​subjects”​ ​(Youthlearn,​ ​2017). In​ ​the​ ​21st​ ​Century​ ​learners,​ ​teachers​ ​build​ ​toward​ ​student-driven​ ​inquiry​ ​by​ ​helping their​ ​students​ ​to​ ​solve​ ​problems​ ​by​ ​expanding​ ​their​ ​questions​ ​with​ ​a​ ​series​ ​of​ ​classes.Students expand​ ​four​ ​main​ ​generic​ ​skills​ ​like​ ​research,​ ​thinking,​ ​analysis,​ ​and​ ​social​ ​skills.​ ​This​ ​style of​ ​teaching​ ​empower​ ​students​ ​to​ ​ask​ ​questions,​ ​clarify​ ​different​ ​issues,​ ​values​ ​and​ ​attitudes through​ ​their​ ​understanding.Teachers​ ​are​ ​aware​ ​that​ ​each​ ​student​ ​has​ ​an​ ​individual​ ​learning styles​ ​depending​ ​on​ ​their​ ​needs,​ ​abilities,​ ​values.​ ​During​ ​the​ ​learning​ ​teachers​ ​try​ ​to​ ​keep students​ ​interested​ ​on​ ​the​ ​task​ ​so​ ​they​ ​are​ ​motivate​ ​to​ ​do​ ​work.​ ​Also,​ ​teachers​ ​are​ ​flexible​ ​of the​ ​students’​ ​interests​ ​(not​ ​everyone​ ​interest​ ​is​ ​the​ ​same).​ ​In​ ​addition,​ ​teachers​ ​challenge​ ​their students​ ​to​ ​get​ ​a​ ​better​ ​understanding​ ​by​ ​exploring​ ​a​ ​range​ ​of​ ​perspectives​ ​and​ ​the​ ​world​ ​such as​ ​culture,​ ​technology,​ ​music,​ ​etc.

Part 1: To​ ​what​ ​extent​ ​is​ ​traditional​ ​methods​ ​of​ ​teaching​ ​relevant​ ​to​ ​the 21st​ ​century​ ​in Hong​ ​Kong​ ​and​ ​Spain​ ​?

According​ ​to​ ​Dictionary.​ ​com​ ​education​ ​is​ ​defined​ ​as​ ​“​ ​the​ ​act​ ​or​ ​process​ ​of​ ​imparting or​ ​acquiring​ ​general​ ​knowledge,​ ​developing​ ​the​ ​powers​ ​of​ ​reasoning​ ​and​ ​judgment,​ ​and generally​ ​of​ ​preparing​ ​oneself​ ​or​ ​others​ ​intellectually​ ​for​ ​mature​ ​life.”​ ​​​In​ ​order​ ​to​ ​develop students​ ​learning​ ​teachers​ ​drive​ ​the​ ​process​ ​of​ ​education​ ​through​ ​literacy,​ ​mathematics, science,​ ​history,​ ​and​ ​arts.​ ​In​ ​this​ ​investigation​ ​there​ ​is​ ​a​ ​focus​ ​on​ ​two​ ​main​ ​pedagogies​ ​which one​ ​is​ ​a​ ​traditional​ ​method​ ​​​such​ ​as​ ​rote​ ​learning​ ​and​ ​the​ ​other​ ​is​ ​inquiry​ ​based.​ ​The​ ​aim​ ​of this​ ​investigation​ ​is​ ​to​ ​understand​ ​the​ ​two​ ​teaching​ ​methodologies​ ​by​ ​comparing​ ​and contrasting​ ​each​ ​perspective.​ ​This​ ​has​ ​been​ ​investigated​ ​through​ ​research​ ​and​ ​work experience​ ​through​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​educational​ ​setting.

Overall,​ ​this​ ​project​ ​was​ ​to​ ​recognise​ ​the​ ​importance​ ​of​ ​both​ ​teaching​ ​styles​ ​based​ ​in Spain​ ​and​ ​Hong​ ​Kong,​ ​and​ ​how​ ​they​ ​changed​ ​within​ ​the​ ​21st​ ​century​ ​preparing​ ​students​ ​for the​ ​21st​ ​century​ ​world.​ ​Traditional​ ​teaching​ ​is​ ​still​ ​relevant​ ​to​ ​our​ ​current​ ​time​ ​as​ ​a​ ​stepping stone​ ​to​ ​inquiry​ ​based​ ​learning.​ ​With​ ​basic​ ​knowledge​ ​taught,​ ​rote​ ​teaching​ ​provides​ ​students with​ ​background​ ​information​ ​to​ ​develop​ ​their​ ​critical​ ​thinking​ ​skill​ ​through​ ​inquiry.

Ethical​ ​Issue

The​ ​introduction​ ​of​ ​technology​ ​in​ ​the​ ​21st​ ​century​ ​has​ ​advanced​ ​education​ ​in​ ​many ways​ ​such​ ​as​ ​communication,​ ​teaching​ ​and​ ​learning.​ ​Today’s​ ​society​ ​focus​ ​on​ ​creativity, problem​ ​solving,​ ​innovation,​ ​cultural​ ​awareness,​ ​exploration,​ ​leadership,​ ​etc.​ ​These​ ​are​ ​the necessary​ ​skills​ ​to​ ​prepare​ ​students​ ​in​ ​the​ ​future.​​ ​​According​ ​to​ ​the​ ​video​ ​by​ ​EF​ ​Education first​ ​(international​ ​education)​ ​46%​ ​of​ ​teachers​ ​say​ ​their​ ​homework​ ​requires​ ​technology,​ ​and 94%​ ​of​ ​students​ ​say​ ​they​ ​use​ ​technology​ ​to​ ​do​ ​homework”.

In​ ​order​ ​for​ ​students​ ​to​ ​success​ ​in​ ​future​ ​learnings,​ ​schools​ ​should​ ​provide​ ​academic studies​ ​at​ ​higher​ ​education​ ​using​ ​the​ ​21st​ ​century​ ​key​ ​subjects​ ​like​ ​government​ ​and​ ​civics, arts,​ ​economics,mathematics,​ ​international​ ​languages​ ​(​ ​eg.​ ​English​ ​),​ ​health​ ​and​ ​science.​ ​This way,​ ​it​ ​will​ ​prepare​ ​students​ ​for​ ​complex​ ​life​ ​and​ ​work​ ​environments​ ​nowadays​ ​and​ ​future lifestyles.​ ​In​ ​addition,​ ​students​ ​must​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​gain​ ​access​ ​to​ ​quick​ ​changes​ ​in​ ​technology​ ​by using​ ​literacy​ ​such​ ​as​ ​media,​ ​ICT,​ ​and​ ​information.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​essential​ ​for​ ​students​ ​to​ ​be​ ​focus​ ​on 4 creativity,​ ​and​ ​critical​ ​thinking,​ ​communication​ ​for​ ​future​ ​careers​ ​to​ ​be​ ​open​ ​and​ ​repons​ ​to new​ ​and​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​perspectives,​ ​and​ ​understand​ ​the​ ​limits​ ​of​ ​real​ ​globe​ ​by​ ​adopting​ ​new concepts.​ ​In​ ​2002​ ​there​ ​were​ ​several​ ​jobs​ ​that​ ​didn’t​ ​even​ ​exist​ ​yet,​ ​for​ ​example​ ​social​ ​media strategist,​ ​Elder​ ​care​ ​Coordinator,​ ​telework​ ​manager,​ ​app​ ​developers​ ​etc.

Preparing​ ​students​ ​for​ ​the​ ​21st​ ​century​ ​means​ ​to​ ​move​ ​forward​ ​along​ ​with​ ​the advantages​ ​of​ ​technology.​ ​Therefore,​ ​the​ ​world​ ​of​ ​education​ ​won’t​ ​fall​ ​behind.​ ​Teachers​ ​in the​ ​21st​ ​are​ ​required​ ​to​ ​plays​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​roles​ ​for​ ​instance​ ​they​ ​need​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a​ ​mentor,​ ​motivators, and​ ​help​ ​the​ ​students​ ​to​ ​connect​ ​real​ ​life​ ​situation​ ​for​ ​problem​ ​solving.​ ​Technology​ ​in​ ​the 21st​ ​century​ ​is​ ​influencing​ ​education​ ​drastically.​ ​Both​ ​traditional​ ​school​ ​and​ ​inquiry​ ​based schools​ ​are​ ​developing​ ​their​ ​curriculum​ ​as​ ​the​ ​advancement​ ​of​ ​technology​ ​continues.​ ​As​ ​21st century​ ​learners​ ​students​ ​should​ ​be​ ​encouraged​ ​to​ ​develop​ ​creativity,​ ​think​ ​critically​ ​and know​ ​how​ ​to​ ​use​ ​technology​ ​efficiently​ ​as​ ​new​ ​jobs​ ​continue​ ​to​ ​come​ ​up​ ​in​ ​the​ ​future.

This​ ​issue​ ​has​ ​an​ ​ethical​ ​concern​ ​because​ ​not​ ​all​ ​students​ ​have​ ​the​ ​same​ ​opportunity. IB/​ ​Inquiry​ ​based​ ​curriculum​ ​are​ ​usually​ ​at​ ​private​ ​schools,​ ​which​ ​require​ ​a​ ​certain socioeconomic​ ​level​ ​of​ ​students.​ ​Therefore,​ ​not​ ​all​ ​students​ ​have​ ​the​ ​same​ ​opportunities.

Students​ ​benefit​ ​from​ ​having​ ​balance​ ​between​ ​inquiry​ ​and​ ​route​ ​learning. eliminating​ ​rote​ ​learning​ ​and​ ​only​ ​using​ ​inquiry​ ​based​ ​learning​ ​in​ ​the​ ​21st​ ​century​ ​in​ ​relation to​ ​the​ ​ethical​ ​dimensions​ ​of​ ​teaching​ ​methods,​ ​by​ ​not​ ​catering​ ​to​ ​all​ ​students​ ​learning​ ​needs. On​ ​the​ ​other​ ​hand,​ ​removing​ ​inquiry​ ​based​ ​learning​ ​deprives​ ​students​ ​from​ ​developing problem​ ​solving​ ​skills,​ ​thinking,​ ​and​ ​creativity.

Cher. Believe ( My reply to you )

No matter how hard I try

You keep pushing me aside and I can’t break through

There’s no talking to you

It’s so sad that you’re leaving

It takes time to believe it

Cher, It does matter.

I am sorry for kept pushing you.

Suddenly, why is this occurring?

It may be. I have my reasons.

Everything takes time. It should not be a surprise.

But after all is said and done

You’re gonna be the lonely one, oh

Do you believe in life after love? (after love, after love, after love)

I can feel something inside me say

I really don’t think you’re strong enough, no

Do you believe in life after love? (after love, after love, after love)

What did I say it?

Why? How am I supposed to be?

Yes, Definitely! And you?

How can you say this to me? I believe,  I am strong enough to go through anything.

Yes, Definitely! And you?

I can feel something inside me say

I really don’t think you’re strong enough, no

What am I supposed to do?

Sit around and wait for you – well, I can’t do that

And there’s no turning back

Try to be more positive. It will not help you a negative mindset.

Whatever you felt like doing

I am already here. How can I help you?

Why not?

I need time to move on

I need love to feel strong

‘Cause I’ve had time to think it through

And maybe I’m too good for you, oh

Do…

Then, move on if that make you happier

Everyone needs that. It is normal.

Perhaps, we didn’t mean to meet.

Something changed our paths

Motivational quotes for adopted kids/teenagers

Quote 1: “Being different doesn’t mean you don’t belong to the family, you are just different. It is better if we look different than if we look the same.

Having this opportunity is a privilege as not all kids have the same luck as you did. Therefore, if you are adopted. Then, be grateful for that.
Thanks to your adopted parents even though all of you are fighting, that should not stop you for telling this sentence to them. It the end, they will be by your side if you need anything or you are struggling with an issue. If you have only a mother or a father. Then, it is okay. She or he is going to be by your side too.

Why boy?

Why boy?

Why are you not playing instead of working?

Why are you not smiling instead of working?

Why are you behaving like an adult instead like a kid?

Why are you not laughing instead of being serious?

Why don’t you have the same opportunities like me?

Como conocía a Iñaki Alegria

Conocí a Iñaki en una fiesta de los etíopes. También, conocido como Somhabesha. Som mean we in catalan and Habesha mean Ethiopians in Amharic which is the official language of Abyssinia.
Desde que conocí a Iñaki pensé que esto, esto de dar sería una de mis oportunidades más privilegiadas que la vida me podría ofrecer. De este modo, podríamos encontrar distintas soluciones para ayudar, para dar un ¨trozo de nosotros.¨ Bueno, yo no daré un trozo, le daría una parte mía o toda.

“Tsehay has been reborn.”- El último Cooperante ( Por un mundo de igual a igual, Iñaki Alegria Coll.)

“Tsahay ha vuelto a nacer. — Has resucitado a Tsahay– me dice la madre–, estaba muerta y a vuelto a nacer.” – El último Cooperante ( Por un mundo de igual a igual, Iñaki Alegria Coll.)

Tsahay,

Has vuelto a nacer dijo tu madre,

Con tanta ilusión.

Esperabamos que te dieras otra oportunidad a ti misma porque te mereces vivir. Tienes que volver a jugar como los otros niños.

Tenias que volver a sonreir al sol, a la luna, y al mundo entero.

Te espera una vida de aventuras por seguir, descubrir cada pequeño placer de la vida aunque a veces sea injusta.

Te quería dar las gracias por no dejar caer lágrimas de tristeza a tu madre.

Las dos sois protagonistas de vuestros cuentos, lo habéis logrado

Ahora hay un reto superada,

Ya podéis respirar de nuevo

y

estar menos preocupadas por hoy.

Guardar otras preocupaciones para mañana

Pero hoy no, hoy toca descansar y sonreir.

It’s a great book!

A story in every car?

                          How come?

In every car, there is a story.
In every bus there is a story to tell, in every book, there is or are more than two stories to tell.
A person is like a book.
You see the physical appearance but few people have the opportunity to get to know the person…
if you see it this way…
this is the same as a story in each car.
We see the car,
we can appreciate the color, the size, and the shape.

Quote: “It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”__Patrick Rothfuss

Barcelona has so much light

To much light was coming out from the left side
It was brilliantly golden
I was pondering just for a couple of minutes.
If Barcelona was trying to proliferate me any one thing painstaking.
My unconscious thoughts were not attentive


Again, I asked myself,


What was that?


Was that tiny energy transformed into something hefty?

Feasibly,


something glorious might appear.
It is difficult to exactly explain it,
and
to really see the magic behind every chapter,
every word is written,

Quote: “… If we don’t tell strange stories, when something strange happens we won’t believe it.” __Shannon Hale

A petite description which tells a mini story.

At least two or three scrawls should stay there,
just

to have a few lines to start a petite description.
A petite description which tells a mini story.
Let’s try just a little bit.

Quote: “Some of these things are true and some of them lies. But they are all good stories.” __Hilary Mantel
