There are so many things that I would like to include in my wish list for the next year that I don't know where to start. First of all, I wish I could be healthier next year, I have been sick many times this year. Second of all, I wish there weren't so much traffic in my city. This year I have been late to work many times because of that. Then I wish there were better school and services for poor people in my country. I wish people were attentive to the global warming problem. Every body could contribute to fight this terrible problem, for example:don't litter!
And what about you? What is your wish list?

That is a good question. There are many things that make me happy;for example when I spend time with my family or when I travel to Moyobamba, my home town, on my vacations. There are sad moments too. I feel sad when somebody in my family is sick or has an accident.When I am nervous, I usually blush or smile a lot. And I am angry when people lie to me. And what about you?

Go Mario, Go! I remember my literature teacher in high school, she was so passionated when she talked about Mario. At first it was shocking for me, but then when she started reading extracts from his books. I will never forget those nice literature classes.

It was saturday afternoon, they just had lunch together and out of a sudden Darwing, my cousin, asked for permission to go to the new soccer field behind the hill with his friends. Who are you going with? , my uncle Rene asked. The father of my friend Agusto is going to drive us in his truck! That's not a truck, it is a lorry my aunt Amalia said, smiling. Darwing rushed to the corner, my uncle and aunt entered to their house and after 10 minutes somebody knocked the door desperately, there was and accident, the truck crashed and unluckily Darwing died. He was just 12 years old... after that my uncle and aunt never got over that terrible event in their lives.
Do you think that losing a son or a daughter can be the saddest event in the life of a person?

There are always different personal experiences about dating. We sometimes have great dates but in others we don't really enjoy them. Some people plan everything, they get tickets for a concert or they study a mini speech, others memorize a poem. What about your experiences? What is the PERFECT date for you?

Difficult question. Sometimes we just do not consider this topic as important as it really is. I think I am an extrovert person because I have a lot of friends and I like to meet new people. I am very sociable and outgoing. As a teacher I am very patient but exigent too. But every time I have to clean, I just run away. What about you?
