Super Max!

Once there was a little dog called Max, who has the aspect of a brown hot-dog just made, with big green eyes and a crazy tail moving without rest.  He was really happy in his hometown Duados. 
Duados was the town were lived the people that didn’t want to work. Was the town where the happiest man was the one who more help to the community and the one who less work to live.  The town has a beach, with white sand and light blue water.
 Max was the kind of pet that any man would love to have:  playful, full of energy and the most loyal dog in the town. But he was homeless. He is homeless? Would you ask yourself… yes, he was.
Little Max has this problem that veterinary called “heroic sense of life”. Every time there was a problem in Duados, Max was the first in smell it and help the one who need aid. Actually, he was happy by helping the town but there was something missing, an owner. In the dark night of our happy city, the lovely dog dreamed and dreamed about living in a house, a regular one, the only thing he asked for, was a place where to sleep and give happiness to their owners.
One day, a family who was new in the town, adopted Max!. The new family was “The Workers”, and didn’t know the rules in Duados, so they started looking a job. They believed that the only way of buying food to the friendly dog was working for it. Max noticed this and just wanted to help them, passing the day in his little house thinking how to stop the searching. The Workers just wondered what in the world would be happen with Max. They thought that Max miss his real place where he belong, the city. So the Workers let Max just where they found them.
Max was very sad after this and started crying every night. The people of Duados listened and didn’t know what to do. Until one day, the Workers were still looking for a job, on the beach area. Suddenly a giant wave covered the family, and they could do nothing but yelling to the sky. Max, the first in hearing the shouting of the Workers, ran to the beach and full of courage jumped to the wave and bit the clothes of every one of them, to pulling to the beach side. The day was saved by Max! And the Workers understood that the Duados town wasn’t a place to work. They read the rules of the town and decided to stay in the town.
But, what happened with our little Max? Guess what! The Workers adopted Max again, but with the promise of let the gate of the hose open, so when Max smell the danger in town, could run to save the day over and over again!

2012: the end of the world?

The last year, the most famous topic was all about the end of the world. If we shut on the tv on weekends, we could watch the panelist talking about it. All this chaos is because many predictions and prophecies said that 2012 will be the end of the humanity.  For example, Nostradamus wrote a prophecy about this, but the main is Maya’s prediction. They were a great civilization because they leave us many information about sciences and astronomic. It’s unbeliever how can they predicted so many solar eclipses with a perfect precision many years ago.
 The Maya’s prediction for the 2012 was the end of the world. They made a calendar who finish this December 21st. So, all the speculations and interpretations made about this topic are related with: they predicted the end.  But I’m not sure if they would say “end of the world” I prefer to think they predicted a change in the world. A change that can shake and remake our minds, and make us to realize the damage we are doing to the world.

I think this prediction in a way can be true. It can be a way to take conscious that we are not the world’s owner.  We are just for a moment here and it is important to take care about the planet and just to enjoy its advantages.

I think if the world was going to come to an end, I would like to enjoy my remaining time with my family and friends. Just to stay together, maybe we can go to a beautiful place to take calm and be relaxed. But I think we can’t live thinking about this. Many past prophecies were not true, like “The end of the world in 2000”. Just enjoy the time… because the end can be anytime.

How green am I?

I think is difficult for me to answer the question because it is a topic very important for the environment but we need to do this better.
I understand I can’t be totally green even if I try to do my best. We can´t do everything to help the planet because the live make us to get worst the environment. I said the life by the way we can’t change all our habits. We can’t to change the all the cars or all the buses for a cycle for example. In this moment of the world that is so difficult to do.  So we just can do it better.
Everyday I try to be conscious about water and electricity consumption. For example if I left a room always I turn off the lights. When I rush my teeth I don’t leave all the time water falling down.  Another thing that I do, at the university, I try to save the print paper that I don’t go to use anymore and I put it in containers for recycle.  Also, when I have batteries that are not working anymore, I put all of them on the batteries recycling box.
About transportation, I have to confess I am a little bit lazy because I don’t use to walk so much. So this is a point that I have to improve. But when distances are short, I try to walk and if it is in company of friends better!! Because is bored to walk alone. And to use a bike, I would love to use it, but I’m scared about to be crushed by a car.
I have never thought about joining an eco-organization, because I think environment is important but not so much for to be part of an organization. And I don’t have so much time for to do those things, and when I have free time I prefer to do other things that I really like to do.
I think in our society and especially in our country is missing to be more conscious about environment, about global warming and topics like those. We need to learn about this from the school years for to change the world and to change the human habits.

The sense of life...

The sense of life?
Wow I think it's hard to think about it ... is too profound!

I don’t really know what is the meaning of life, I think the age that I have is a little hard to say which is because I am just 20 years old, and I still have many things to live (I hope so). But really, at this point I think the meaning of life is what you want to do with your life. I always think I must live the way things are. See their good sides and bad sides, its positive and negative things. I’m sure always you have something to learn about it. Maybe sometimes you don’t understand why things happen, but I'm sure with time are explained. "Whenever things happen for a reason" and that something is always better for you, maybe you don’t really reach at the momento, but with the time you will understand why was it happening. I think everyone must just enjoy life, because there is only one, and it must to be profited! Carpe diem, but with careful!

French Children Don't Throw Food

There is a book called “French children don’t throw food”, that explains some interesting habits of the French children in contrast with the American ones. One of the habits is that the French children, passed the second month of life, can sleep all night trough without awaking. This is a wonderful attitude that I guess, any mother would wish. The writer of the book, Pamela Druckerman, a New Yorker journalist explains that this is caused because the tactics at the moment of hearing the cry of the baby in the middle of the night are very different. The American moms, when hears the baby cry, immediately runs to take him and make him sleep. The French moms are more analytical, she knows that the baby has two phases of dream, so, it’s natural that they wake in the middle of them. The strategy there is standing right him and let he be quiet alone… then will be fall sleep magically. Another difference between American and French moms is that the last ones, are not really interested in make social life with other moms of same age. This could be explained because they are more interested in taking care of the child instead making social life in that stage of the life. The main conclusion that Druckerman is able to say, is that the quiet you take care you child, the more obedient he will be, just ask the French moms!

How do I see my future life...

The way that I see myself in the future is obviously exactly as the way I want to be and what I want to do it in the future with my life. I think I really don’t have so many projects for me, but I’m sure that I have the same mains projects that everybody in the world must to have for themselves.
First of all I think in around 4 years I will finish my psychology career and then I will search a good job, when I said a “good job” It means I will have my own office to see my patients. It will be decorated really nice by me for to make it comfortable for my patients. At the same time, I will be still with my boyfriend, we will not be thinking about get married (there is so much time for that and It is not something important for us) but I’m sure we will be planning travels and making real all our dreams about to know different countries and enjoying the life together. After to travel and enjoy the time we will make a family. I will have two children and my parents will be very proud about me. I will be very close for them.
About my social life I will have my close friends from the university, we will meet us every single weekend to spend the time as old times and to speak about our special patients.
I see myself in 15 years as a woman very happy and proud about her life, profession and family. I will be very passionate about life and all things that I love to do.

Summer: Bikini and Sunglasses in JGM

Studying in a summer semester? Is not THAT bad actually. Of course there are some points that don’t help making it normal. But, there are traditions that will never be forgotten in order to having this “innovator” semester. For example, I will not read those texts in the middle of Christmas dinner, or making my investigation project while I’m sited watching the fireworks. Ok, it can’t be everything normal. I have thought that travelling in subway would be the worst thing to do, because the human warmth there is unbelievable. I hope this semester worth it and we get that for what we are fighting for: FREE, PUBLIC AND QUALITY EDUCATION!
My expectations for this semester are very positive. I think that would be nice this situation: 3 o clock in the afternoon, such a sun hitting us in our faces like a oven on his maximum warmth, and one friend yells: LETS GO TO VIÑA DEL MAR THIS WEEKEND! That would be a perfect idea, a quick travel to the beach just for having a great time.
