Fiber Weekend




Last weekend the FIB festival took place in Benicàssim. I couldn't work as a volunteer, so I had to pay the considerable amount of 85€ for my Friday ticket (we are not used to such expensive prices). But anyway, it was worthwhile! I was greatfully surprised with two concerts: Hot Chip and Róisín Murphy. After expending the night making the most of every minute, I arrived home when the sun was rising :D






On Sunday, my friend told me that we had two invitations to come back to the festival, thanks to Vince Powell - one of the promoters of the FIB festival. So, I quickly got ready for it; comfortable nice clothes and a good pair of trainers. With the invitation, we can move all around the concert site, including the backstage and the VIP area. That was great! Not only we will show the performances, but also we can meet the stars!






We had just arrived and we bumped into Mr Leonard Cohen! OMG! He seemed to be a pleasant person, so I asked him whether we could take a pic with him. He answered: yes! It's a completely pleasure! Of course, the pleasure was mine... A living legend who hasn't come to Spain during the last 20 years was attending us for a while ;)






Then, we meet other artists, actors or tv presenters, such as: Morrisey, Eduardo Noriega or Eva ! There were plenty of them - as they don't have to pay anything...






In three words: an awesome experience :D

Va de parques temáticos!!

Otro día en un parque temático!
Fuimos invitados por Fills de Kassim a pasar el día a Aquarama. Agua y risas por todas partes! Confieso que nunca había estado en un parque acuático y después de la primera experiencia, aseguro que volveré.

Lo mejor: el twister (elegir el amarillo!)
Lo peor: las esperas y colas en el remolino, el black hole y río aventura (a la próxima me llevo mi flotador :P)

Una experiencia para repetir en breve, pero antes... llega el FIB. A ver si con suerte me llaman para voluntaria y no tengo que pagar entrada (aunque sea a costa de recoger la basura de los VIPs)

Hasta entonces escucharemos música.

Summer holidays




Summer holidays are just around the corner!! Hurray!!!




Tomorrow we are visiting the fantastic theme park PortAventura what usually means the end of the school year. This is the 4th time that I visit it and it's the 3rd one I'm going as a teacher. Isn't it great? I'm getting my ticket free :D, so it's great!




A pesar de no tener la garganta al 100%, mañana gritaré TUTUUUUUUUKIIIIIIIIIIIIIII




Os deseo un comienzo de vacaciones genial.

Free Wi-Fi connection

Gracias a alguna vecina despistada vuelvo a tener internet en casa (no lo diré muy alto por si me oye y se me acaba el chollo). Asi que, vuelvo a actualizar.

Voy a contar lo que estamos haciendo en clase estos días. A parte de exámenes, ya sé que estamos todos hasta arriba de estudiar, corregir y demás...

Los alumnos de primero me están enviando por correo electrónico las redacciones de cómo sería su Super School y, la verdad, es que están saliendo muy bien.

En segundo hemos empezado a ver la película "Real Women Have Curves". La elegí porque me gustaron mucho los temas que trata y aparecen personajes bilingües, que cambian del inglés al español de forma inconsciente en una misma frase, algo que me pareció muy interesante.

Sin duda una buena película para acompañar con palomitas ;)

Plot summary: Real Women Have Curves
Ana belongs to the Chicano community, formed by American people with Mexican origins. She studies in a High School in the luxury Beverly Hills district (Los Angeles, California), which is far away from the East area where she lives with her large family. She wants to go to university when she finishes in the High School, but her mother, Carmen doesn’t wish the same for her: loosing weight, getting married and having children. During summer holidays Ana will have to help out her sister, Estela in the tailor workshop, will meet love for the first time and will have to decide what she want to do with her life.
