You would ask me why am I posting texts in English. I’ll explain you! It’s because this blog was made to practice my writing and it doesn’t matter in what language I do it.
Most of my deep reflections come from my walking in the mornings or afternoons. I decided to let my car parked in my garage and walk to go to school. Then I do two things at the same time: I exercise and I don’t pollute the environment. When I walk, I start to think about my life and in all the changes I’ve had to pass through. I think about my occupations and I concluded that most of them are hobbies. I’m an English teacher, this is my real job. Being a writer or an actress is just occupations to amuse myself. In the other way, to write is the ability that makes me different, it is the way I can show my talent and my experience. I get confused sometimes because I’ve decided not to invest too much time in my writing stuffs anymore. Just for a while. I have other priorities at this moment. In the other hand, writing is a way to survive emotionally. What should I do?
