Another (a spooky story)

Once upon a time, it was a boy who removed to Tokyo and changed school. At first, everyone was kind and good with him, but when he met a girl, who was very different from the other classmates, everything changed. This girl was very shy and she had not friends and every time someone called her name he died. So everyone ignored her. The girl, Misaki Mei, was not a bad person, but the school that they went was cursed because someone around them was dead but everyone could see him and if they did not find the dead student, every month a student would die. So everyone started to kill everybody to find the real dead who was in the school to stop this curse in the school.

Halloween story (possible TW!!! don’t press it if you’re not a big one!)

Once upon the time.. There was a little girl with a somewhat bad friend group, they were together all the time going to abandoned places and breaking in houses… madelline, the little girl, started to get furious with the other kids. “I’m not like these kids she thought i’m better than that”. So, the next day she went to her friends and bravely said that she doesn’t want to hand out with them anymore, the other kids seemed to be cool with her decision.
But it wasn’t only after a couple days, the day of halloween that someone started stalking her, leaving threatening notes telling her she is dead and breaking her windows. She started to be so frightned she decided to make a small group of kids that she would control to do whatever she wants. She started to become obsessed with being in control with everything, she lost her mind. The group started to become bigger and bigger. She craved numbers in their belies in a way to recruit them and make them her property, she collected the blood and putted it in a jar. But, that was just the start of everything she after made them kidnapp the kids from her group.
She had her little murderous plan. She was feeling confident in what she was doing. Madeline had her little cult and her old friends in her tree house, she had to do something, the business wasn’t finished. A few days passed with her hostages starving to death and being treated like they were garbage. It was the perfect time to go further to her plan, the little girl gathered her group she called them “madelline family” and told them to go and kill every one of her 5 friends with different methods, “hang them, slice their throats i don’t care she said but I want you to bring me their heads”. And so it happend a few hours later 5 heads were in her desk, five plus 2.
She returned from school and saw them, she was confussed her parents were in the desk too, but she didn’t tell them to do that, how dare they do something I didn’t ask them to do? she screamed she punched the wall her made family was starting to understand whats going on, they were ready to go to the police but she was smart she knew what they were going to do she gathered them once again but this time they never left, while she was talking to them she was wondering aroud the room and with quick moves she stabbed them, and then took their heads off. But a little kid is also creative, she got rid of the bodies and started the fun stuff, She pilled their face off the heads, making homemade masks and painting them with the blood she had.
When the masks were finished the were looking just realistic but no one would ever think they were real people faces, so she took the opportunity and sell them in a yard sail. Everyone was loving the masks and everyone bought one, parents were bying masks made out of their lost childs but no one suspected her or understanded what they really were.
Madelline was free from all the blood all the bodies and clean from her enemies. Two heads were forgoten in her room.. her parents.! their heads were still there they started to move around like they had their own personallity their own heart if you will.. everything started to go back to the madness that just finished the madness of her head was back in the end everything that just happend was a lie..

“History of the Halloween”

Halloween began as the festival Samhain. It was part of the ancient Celtic religion in Britain and other parts of Europe. At the end of summer, the Celts thought the varied between our world and the world of ghosts and spirits got really thin.

This meant weird creatures with strange powers could wander about on Earth. The Celts had a big party. It was all about scaring away the ghosts and spirits.

Also, they believed that as we moved from one year to the next the dead and the living would overlap and demons would roam the earth again. So dressing up as demons was a defence mechanism.

Travel broadens the mind

Nowadays most of the people travel in order to relax and have some time for their self, family or friends. But most of the times when you travel abroad you learn a lot of new things about other cultures and it may change your way of thinking. But how can it change your mindset?

To start with, the title of the essay means that when you travel you increase your knowledge about other far-flung cultures. You will learn about their ideology or how they live and which is their daily programme. Especially you will learn a lot of stuff in impoverished locations because they don’t have a lot of things to live with so they know how to recycle and live with a few.

In addition, you may meet new people and make new relationships which they may stay together for a long time so they can influence you positively.

In other words, travelling can change and create a lot of things. You can learn and see how other far-flung cultures live, which are their customs and their ideology. You can learn new aspects of your personality and you may think about your mindset and also improve it. So as the chef Anthony Bourdain once said: ” Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind”.

 

A meeting… gone wrong

Yesterday there was a meeting about climate change where some of the most important people of our board took part in. The prevailing opinion was that we need to change our ways of living or the repercussions will affect us and the generations to come. In the meeting, there were some people with a different mindset which disputed that our community isn’t detrimental to the environment and that we do not have an impact on climate change. There was also another group of people who were dormant and oblivious to the subject so they weren’t immersed in the conversation.  But everything degenerated when the two opinionated groups clashed and caused a brawling conflict which made the agitation levels go even higher and ended up with a colleague passing out. This event shocked everyone so they had to end the meeting. The only good thing about this meeting was that the three groups were in conjunction with each other and were able to bring around the poor colleague.

Student’s book page 17 exercise 9

 

Nobody can deny that travel changes our mind of thinking, makes us happier and broadens our mental horizons with useful information about the world and cultures. On the other hand, going trips and exploring the world with airplanes and cars, it can be very harmful for the environment.

 

In the first text, the writer says that the tourism population has raised and they travel more than in the last two decades. It also says that travel can change the way we are thinking and it help us to see the countries we are visiting with a different point of view. Obviously, if the visitors visit and travel, more and more economic benefits it will have the country.  In my personal experience and opinion is that travel makes us better and more out mind people and we get away from our every-day routine, which is very good for our health.

 

The second text, discusses about the bad impacts of tourism and the environmental issues that it makes. Without doubt, tourism in our days has been a serious source of pollution, due to the unhealthy ways of transportation like airplanes, ships, trains and the cars. Another problem which pollutes the country is the big groups of tourism. Why is that a problem? The problem is that they pollute the areas and they make more noisy the roads of the city.

 

The texts obviously views different reactions about the tourism. The way I see it, the two texts have an interesting point of view and the both of them are right but we stop traveling, the countries will have economic problems.

My meeting speech

Good evening my dear colleaques.We are all here today to discuss some of the most serious problems of our company. To start with, I must say that a lot of our expences are extravagant. For example, the most sustained mistake of us is that we harm our land in order to make our products. So I believe that we have to use recycled stuff to help the enviroment and also to encourage our clients to be more eco-friendly. Secondly, we have to do something about a new cheaper smaller company which is starting to develop so our company is starting to decline. We have to clash them.  So I suggest having an offer so more people can afford them. Also we can make an adverb in order to flourish our company. In the end, I have to remunerate our colleaque for his sustained and always impeccable and we also we have to thank him because he wasn’t dormant when we needed him and helped us every time. Thank you for hearing me. We can continue our meeting now.

“Travel broadens the mind”

    Travelling is one of the best ways to get out of the ordinary. Most people travel because they want to calm and relax. But why you choose only relaxing when you can explore the world?

    The interesting point about travelling is that from one trip you can learn things that you didn’t know. Firstly, you meet new people or encountering new and unfamiliar cultures that you didn’t know that exist. Secondly, the natural beauty of a country could be breath taking. Obviously you can learn about the history of the country/island you visit which is something awesome and very interesting. Similarly, trying new cuisine is the best part of the trip. Trying new tastes its like a must for obvious reasons. Every country has its own cuisine and her tastes.

    We can all agree that from a trip give you the opportunity to provide your personality and your tastes on music, food or thoughts about something. In the same way you can find yourself through the other cultures and from meeting new people from completely different nationalities.

    In conclusion, life without experiences is just a boring life. As you soak new experiences that you will take in your rest of your life.

 

Have you ever heard of “Clean Monday”?

There are many customs all over the world. However, there is one you might not know, here in Greece we call it << clean Monday>>.

Each year, forty days before Easter comes the day when greek people take a day off and celebrate Monday with their families. It is an important celebration for our country and marks the end of preceding carnival celebrations. In particular, this day colorful kites fly overhead us and, believe me, a big number of them might be stuck on tall trees or even get wet because of their landing in the blue sea. Also this day we eat only fish. It appears that families all over the country travel to their villages and eat fish or fish-soap. That happens, because on Clean Monday, begins a period of time when we don’t eat meat or milk products. In other words, fasting prepares us to go to the church and Jesus’ blind and body.

This Tradition means lots for Christians and especially for Greece. This day remind us how important the enjoyment with people you love as family and friend are also clean Monday symbolizes the Greek gastronomy, for instance, greek salade, Chalvas and many kinds of cooking fish and marines. However the most important of all the survivor of the religion.

Celebrations are in the hearts of the Greek people, as they provide an opportunity to escaping from the daily routine while coming in contact with nature and the country’s cultural heritage.

A small paragraph about Anne-Marie (exercise)

She started singing in the age of twelve. Untill now, she has written a lot of beautiful songs like ”friends, ”2002” and she has been very famous in all over the world.

writing about travelling

We can for sure say that travelling is one of the best experiences and I don’t think that many people can deny that. But the real question is if tourism is as nice as we thing or does it have a lot of bad impacts.
As we read in the first text, modern tourismhas a lot of good to give in our society! Things like better economy, many places and countrys that are rich now without tourism would be dead. Tourism has had a big growth in those decades with peaple travelling a lot more. Also it can make an individuals feelings better, it can make us smarter and more thoughtfull of whats happening around us.
But, as in everything, we have to think for it with a bigger set of eyes. Not many of us talk or even think about the effect tourism in peak season has. The governers promote this type of tourism, the mas s tourism as it is called, with the result of many small businesses failing. The biggest problem, suddenly, isn’t the economy part but the earth. That’s the biggest problemof the last decades and many people still don’t understand the problem. When so many people travel, airplanes and ships burn more fuel, causing more polution in our home. This thing isn’t something that can be loweed down easily if the government doesn’t step out.
These are the biggest impacts of tourism and I think that everything presented in those two texts is true. Tourism has saved the economy and destroyed the earth in the same time. But to keep saving our countries money we have to save our earth. And just stopping travelling isn’t going necessery to help but we have to do something, if everyone do one small thing we might have a chance to continue tourism.
