Forest Ranger

Well, if I could choose any job that I like to do, that would be a Forest Ranger in any National Park here in Chile. I would like to do this job because I like very much the nature, and I think there’s no other place better for work.
I am sure that I would enjoy very much this job, because I like very much to go to national parks, and every time that I have been there I thinbk that I would like to work in there. There are very vast places, and I imagine that always there are things to do in a place like that.
For me, this can be a satisfactory job, because is a job for to do good things for nature, that is very important for me. Is almost an ideal job, and the space is very big for do many things for keep the flora and fauna, and with this I could feel completly happy.
Well, when I went to do trekking in several national parks, for a time in the same park, I knew forest rangers, and talking with they, I feel that are people very happy with his job, and one of them tells me that he never change his job, because this give him the possibility of help the nature. This people many times are from near of the parks, then they know the area and have a special feeling about their town and land.
I see you in class, Bye!!

Henry David Thoreau

Well, there are so many people that I would like to have known, because I admire much people by the way they think and the things that they do in the life, changing the world in some way.
In this time, I choose one of my favorite writers, Henry David Thoreau. He lived in the 19th century, and had a revolutionary way to think for this time, with ideas absolutely valid for our times, between the anarchy and the love of nature. His work influence to the pacifists movements of the past century.
I would like to talk so many things with him, to know what he thinks about this world we live and of our time. Also I would like to talk with him about his life in forest, out of the civilization, ask him how was that experience, how he lived, and why choose that place. For discuss about life and nature.
Well, I think for me was very interesting to know him, because I agree with some of what he writing, his ideas about how the world should be, the authority and the life. He was part on the movement of Transcendentalism, whose ideas I think are very considerable.
Also I would like to share with him the love for the nature, and the importance of this, just for know which was the force that make him just get out of the world of society and advance into the woods and live in the nature, alone (no people).
See you in class :)

Learning English

Well, I would like to learn to speak english very well, because I hope travel so much, and I think to know english perfectly help me so much to can communicate with the people and not to starve to death… also I think that the english is a useful tool en any ocasión, for communicate with different people in different situations. Actually, the english is a universal languaje, it speaks in all the world, so wherever when I would like to journey, could be a person that speak english, and that can be very good when needs to know something.
With all, th english is a difficult languaje, because is very different to the spanish, the forms are completly diverses. Is like a other way to think, and is necessary patience for know it.
I think always is useful to know english, because sometimes, there is people that I can know or help that only speak english, and is good to be ready. Also, is useful to understand many daily thing, like songs that I never now what said, and for reading, because I like s much read, and smetimes I found books only in english, and I just don’t read it, that is very bad.
In geography, to know english is a very important tool, because the majority of the technical books of this profession are write in english. That means if we don’t know english, lost a great part of knowledge of geography, that is a really serious problem for geographers.
See you in class :):)

A perfect day out of the city

Well, in first time, I don´t really know with who I would like to spend in this perfect day, can be with my boyfriend, very close friends, family or just with myself, because the company is not the most important for me. I think that whatever be the circunstance would be fine.
But the most important for me in my perfect day is the place, the scenario, that needs to be a place in the nature, specifically in the mountain with a river or lake near. The idea of a perfect day for me is to be in touch with the nature, because that makes me feel really happy, and with a mountain like a view I can ask anything else.
Well, in this place, I would like to walk a lot, for know the mountain, but too I would like to rest, read a good book, spend time just contemplate the landscape and do meditation with the sound of the birds, the wind and water, things that you can´t pay ,near of any kind of civilization, is all that I want to have a perfect day.
In my life, I had a perfect day like this sometimes, when I was in vacations or when I can scape from Santiago and of the responsabilities, but I’m always looking for time to pass a day like this, and I hope in any time, that my life become in many days like this.
I hope all of you have a perfect day just like you want.
See you! :)
