Styles above the world

In my community there are a lot of different people , with different thoughts and different styles , but some styles are a little more popular.
One of the bests is called EMO they usually are usually really sensitive , they like to wear black clothes and listen do Simple Plan , Fresno and Hateen . Most of people , are really rude with EMO’s because they think that most of the EMO’s community are gays/lesbians.
Another style , is casual . Casual people are usually calm , have a lot of friends , like to go to the club , to restaurants , to malls . They wear Toulon , Colcci and Brooksfield . Casula style is the most popular in the world because everybody can be a casual person.
People who likes Hip Hop are really cool . They use to wear Dolce Gabanna , Gucci , Diesel , and love to listen to 50 cent , Eminem , Bow Wow , Akon and G-unit . They are really friendly , and they show theirs opinions by writing lyrics.
In conclusion we can say that if we were all identical , we would be bored , because we wouldn’t have differences to talk about.

Who Do You Want To Be?

That's the most common question that teens talk about these days. It's necessary that we discover ourselves at the youngest age because that will certainly say what we will become in the near future. It's a long way to truly know who you are and who you want to be. Nearly none of us are prepared to walk that path all alone, so we usually ask for help.

The age, clothing, music and culture are decisive matters to determine what kind of person you will be and what kind of tribe you will adept. All Countries have ways of expressing their culture, and so their citizens. Teens ate the age of 12 begun to join groups that have that goal. The most common ones here in Brasilia are trendy, goths, emos and geeks.

The first group likes to be always fashionable and prepared to whatever may happen: storm, sun and especially parties. They like designed and expensive clothes, fancy cars, boyfriends/girlfriends, they usually are the most famous at school, and have a lot of difficulties because since their parent are absent and have a lot of money to afford them in the future they don’t seem to care a lot with school.
The second one is usually mistaken with the third. Goths are people who love to wear black clothes and dark make-up. Usually don’t care what people will think about them because they usually have strong personality, and don’t need outsider’s influence. They are very calm, intelligent, like heavy metal music and melodic ones and they usually smoke in the backyard of school in groups.
Emos are the new and most incomprehensible tribe. They don’t know what they want for life and always think that they are misunderstood. They are always sad or depressed, crying with their friends or extremely happy in other moments. They use bangs, dark make-up too but usually with a drop drawn on their cheeks and striped clothes to complete the visual.
Geeks are the one who wear glasses, are addicted with everything related to computer and have weird ways of walking, talking and sitting because mostly of them are very shy. Unfortunately some of them are bullied at school from trendies because of their shyness and right way of doing things.

No matter who you are or what kind of group you belong. It’s important to know that we have to respect each other because we are a society. We work in groups. Without respect, we have no chance of conquering our place in the world, at school and even at your workplace.

Most common teens' styles

Teenagers are always trying to find their identity, because of this they usually choose a style or a tribe to join. The most common teens' styles are skater, trendy and emo.
Skaters wear unusual clothes: baggy pants and enormous t-shirts. In addition, they can not live without their caps. They are outgoing and they use a lot of slang while speaking. The kind of music they listen to is hip-hop.
Emo is a new tribe, which became more popular during this year. However, many teenagers do not like them. Emo people wear striped clothes, black eye-liner and big bangs. Their music is called emocore, an abreviation for emotional hardcore.
Finally, trendy is the most popular tribe in my city. They wear fashionable and expensive clothes, which they buy at stores like Zara and Colcci. They are usually girls, so they wear make-up everyday and everywhere. Moreover, many trendy girls are stuck-up.
To conclude, it is important to remember that there are many styles, but all teenagers live the same problems and happy moments.

Styles in Brazil

Anywhere in the world there are people with all the styles. Those styles develop when many teens join together, start to grow up, and start to admire the same things and to listen to the same music. In Brazil there are many styles. Anywhere that you go, you find so many different people.
One of the most popular groups is the skater group. They are easily recognizable. They wear baggy pants and caps, they listen to rap and their way of talking is very typical, with so much slang which only skaters know.
An other unmistakable group is the emo group. They wear eye-liner (men and the women). They always wear big and straight bangs covering the eyes and they listen to a kind of music called emocore.
The trendy group is a more common group. You can find them anywhere you go. People of this group always wear the most fashionable clothes and many make-up. They usually listen to pop music.
There are many other groups usually found here. They normally don’t mix with each other. Each one with their kind of party and their opinions, which are very different. Sometimes those differences bring fights when the groups find each other. Some of them don't accept other groups in the same place they are.

Teen Tribes

Tribes are groups of teens with the same age. They have ideas in common. Usually they become friends and make groups because of their admiration for a same band, songs and opinions. Style and hair cut can also be a way to mount a tribe.
In first place we have the Geeks. This is a very common tribe. They are very intelligent but shy.They don’t like sports, so they have a long time to be in front of a computer. Their clothes are basically a pair of jeans, a T-shirt and sometimes glasses. They often meet at the internet at online computer games and chat rooms.
The second group are the Punks. They are a very detached group in community. They use make-up on the face, their hair style and their piercing are very different, that provokes fear and suspicion to other people. They are considerated a very radical and aggressive tribe, because of that, they have been on news for aggression and violence.
The next one ate the Skin Head who doesn’t stay back. The teens in this group are completely bowl and have a lot of tattoos on their body. They hate negros, gays, Jewish and Brazilian northeast people. Their attitudes are based in Adolf Hitler’s convictions. Their principal enemies are the Punks.
Analyzing these groups so different we observe that all of them have something in common, they want to be accepts with their distinctions. Unfortunately this doesn’t make one tribe better than others.

Who Do You Want To Be?

That it's the most commom question that teen's talk about these days. Its necessary that we discover ourselves at the youngest age because that will certainly say what we will become in the nearly future. It's a long way to truly know who you are and who you want to be. Nearly all of us aren't prepared to walk that path all alone, so we usually ask for help. The age, clothing, music and culture are decisives facts to determine what kind of person you will be and what kind of tribe you will become to.

All Countries have ways to express they culture, so have their citizens. Teens at the age of 12 begins to join themselfs in groups that have that goal. The most Common ones are trendy, goths, emos and geeks.

The first group likes to be always fashion and prepared. They like designed and expensive clothes, fancy cars, fancy boyfriends, parties all the weekend and usually have a lot of dificulties at school but since they have absent parents they don't mind it a lot.
The second one is usually mistaked with the third. Goths are people wo loves to wear black clothes, and dark make up, usually don't care what people will think about them because they usually have strong personality and don't need outsiders influence.
Emos are the new and most incomprehendible tribe. They don't know yet what they want for their lifes and always think that they are missunderstood. They are always sad or depressed, likes hard core music, usually walks looking down on the floor and have the highest indication of suicide in the country.
Geeks are the ones who weares glasses, have weard ways to walk, talk and sit. They are usually bullied at school because of that weard way, and because they dont have an active social life.

Concluding, no matter who you are or what kind of group you belong. It's important to know that you have to respect them because we are a society. We work in groups. Without respecting we have no chance to conquer our place in the world, at school and even at your workplace.


In the old days many people didn´t realized the transition that children had and already treat them llike adults, that is the cause that be necessary one concept tat represents this transition, like this appeared the word "adolescent" which represents all this unsettle of them concept. Nowadays this teenagers came questioning about many subjects like relatioship, friends, parties but, in te first, about what they would do in the world. Like this many of them organized in groups or tribes that represents them personality, some examples of them are trendies, emos and gothics.
Trendies are people who like eletronic music, frequent parties where the music is a beat which swing besides slow and accelerate, they wear fashion clothes, high heel sandals, big sunglasses, a lot of bracelets and they always make-up themselves before hang ou with friends. They usually frequent psycodelic places.
Emos are hard emotional people, they blame everyone saying that everybody is complicated, they wear bangs, tight jeans, striped shirts, drawed blouses and they are always with them eye painted. They usually found at places that music is emotional hardcore.
Gothics dress black clothes and usually wear crucifix necklace. They are obscure people, they frequent rock parties where the sound is heavy. Gothics usually frequent cemetery to gather with their friends.
At finaly, teenagers are separeted in tribes that is the way that we can´t generalize all of them supposing they already adults. We must respect all tribes and they have to do the same.


Styles have always been part of the humanity. They make us who we are. Teenagers are usually the most affected by the styles because there’s an age that has a lot of changes in the body and they try to find themselves in the world. Styles express who we are, and sometimes they say something indirectly. For example, one popular style between is Trendy. Trendies wear modern and fashionable clothes. The clothes are usually from famous designers, and they are very expensive too. In addition, Trendies like pop and romantic music. However, they like trance and night clubs songs. Another very common style these days is Goth. Goths usually wear black clothes, rock accessories and stronger make up. They like metal and rock music, although they’re very appealing. Nowadays Goths are mistaken with Emos because they wear black, even knowing that Goths appeared exist much before Emos. Skaters are a little eclectic, they like rock and some black music. They wear baggy clothes and really like caps. They are usually with a couple of friends practicing skateboard in parks or something like that. All the styles have their good points, and they’re cool in their way. However there’s still a little fight or disrespect in all tribes to others, it would be much better if everyone respected each other and lived in harmony.

The styles have been upgraded and because of this, many groups have appeared. These groups are different on the kinds of clothes, kinds of music and kinds of styles.
Some of these groups are trendy, hippie, preppy, emo, gothic, casual, hip hop, skater, hardcore punk and geek.
Preppys are people who like to be famous, like to listen, famous songs and usually wear expensive and famous clothes. They usually go to shopping mall and places where, is crowded.
Hip Hopers are people that like their people and love, sing. They wear baggy clothes and they are a little bit bad-boys, and when they make their own songs they complain about their lifes when they were young.
Casuals are people who are more common. They usually wear t-shirts and jeans, they like a lot of kinds of music. They usually go shopping and walk at the park.
All these kinds of groups are different in styles but even this can cause fight because all, us are humans and deep inside we like at least a little bit of the same things.


Teen's tribes

Nowadays, there are many teens tribs in all urbans cities.They use to be emos, trendies, geeks, hippies, preppies, gothics, casual style, punks, sk8ers.Certainly sometime you will choose a tribe.

Emos wear dark clothes, listen emocore music, they usually wear piercings, they wear their hair with bangs, and in Brasilia, they use to go to Pátio Brasil on Fridays.They are very strange.

Geeks usually to wear glasses, they study much, they know all about computers,
they even get good grades, they rarely go out with friends, they don't have many friends and they love reading books.They use to meet on internet chat or on computers games chat.

Sk8ers wear baggy clothes, they wear caps, big sneakers and they have theirs own skateboards.Have some sk8ers that like to do jackass.They use to meet on halfs to join together.

In conlusion, It's cool to have your own tribe, however, some people use their bad culture with a way to pratice racism and to be violent.In addition, I think people have to choose a tribe because everybody have a style.

Teen's Style

When we are teenagers, we want to know ourselves and we usually have friends that are similar to us. We start to listen to one kind of music, wear one style of hair and clothes and get one way of speaking. According to our changes, we choose our friends. Because of the similarity, teenagers are separated in tribes. There are a lot of tribes, like the trendies, the emos, the hip hop tribe, the hippies and the skaters.

Trendies usually wear jeans or miniskirts, high heel sandals, tops, big earrings, a lot of bracelets, rings and they usually do not go out without make-ups. Most of them like pop music.

Emos like emotional songs, wich say how the capitalism is unfair and how love and life are complicated. They usually wear bangs and tight jeans. Men wear polo shirts and striped shirts and women wear striped or plated blouses.

Hip hops usually wear shaved hairs, baggy pants or baggy jeans, baggy shirts and they put a cap . They like rap and hip hop and usually practice basketball.

Althought teenagers are separated in tribes, we ca not generalize them, saying that all trendies are fussy or all emos are gays because one emo is gay or one terndy is fussy. We must respect all tribes and all tribes must respect ours.

styles of teens

Nowadays there are many differents styles of teens, and each style determine one specific way to be and to dress. There are many styles, from hippies to hardcore punks. However, it’s important to respect the differences between each style so that you can live better with all the people. Because of that I will talk about the three most representatives styles among teens in Brasília.
One example of a very common style in Brazil and in others countries is the emo. The abreviation emo comes from emotional hardcore, which is one kind of music listened by the emo people. They wear black clothes and put on make-up. Moreover, emos generally wear bangs and they are very sad.
Another popular style is the preppy style, which is usually seen in Brasília. Preppies offen wear only very expensive clothes, including nike shoes, adidas T-shirts and popular accesories. However they don’t have one certain style of being, but generally most part of the time they talk about fashion sneakers and clothes.
One style which became very popular is hip hop. Hip hop is one style that comes from the hip hop music, and this style is generally related for basketball. People whose style is the hip hop wear tanks and shorts, and most of them wear big necklaces.
In conclusion, there are many styles, and each of them is very diferent. However, it’s very good if you want to have your own style. The important thing is to know how to live with all those different styles.

My dream vacation

In my dream vacation I would go to Egypt witch is a republic, the official language there is Arabic, and the independence of Egypt was at 28 February 1922. I would travel there because Egypt has lots of things to do, for example: I would visit the pyramids; I would see the pharaoh and ride a camel. If I could choose the time of the year, I would choose the winter because Egypt would be less hot than the summer.
I would travel by plane, of course, because planes are the fastest way of transportation, but I think it would be more expensive than ship and car. If I had the chance to take someone with me, I would take my grandmother and my mother because both love Egypt and they are fascinated visiting it.
I know that Egypt is hot all year, so I would take: ten white t-shirts, eight shorts, one flips flops and one hat. As soon as I got there I would rent three camels to me and my family, then we would go with a guide to the tourist’s sites and go to the city to rent one place for to us stay and meet the Egyptian people.
I would certainly take the mornings to appreciate the Egyptian food and visit the pyramids, in the afternoons I would visit the Cairo’s museum, which is a very interesting and important museum in Egypt, and know more about the historical monuments of that beautiful place, then I would sit and wait for the sun set, after that I would rest and wait for another day.

The Six Flags

If I could visit any place in the world, it would certainly be the six flags. It is a (chain of) park with the scariest roller coasters in the world! It's amazing!! I think it's in New York. I would go there in July or December because that's when my boyfriend and I have time to spend.
I actually don't know how to get there, I guess we would have to take a flight to São Paulo, then another flight to New York and then go by car with the help of a map (and getting lost about every 5 minutes). I would bring Paulinho, my boyfriend, with me because we both have a high sense of adventure, we would probably stop at some place to do radical sports if we could or to take pictures of the places we were at and get to know something about their history.
I like to bring everything with me when I'm traveling everywhere far from home, you never know when you'll need to use them. But since we would not stay at only one place, I guess I would not bring big luggage, just some make-up, a few skirts, underwear, t-shirts, a light dress to wear when it's too hot and some groceries to eat during the trip.
The first thing I would do is going to The Kingda Ka. It's simply the tallest, fastest roller coaster on earth. It breaks all world records for coaster speed and height, zooming from 0 to 128 mph in 3.5 seconds and catapulting you 45 stories into the sky!! I love adrenaline! I would spend my morning and afternoon there and in the evenings I would go to Times Square, South Street Seaport, Liberty Island, It would be the best trip of my life if I had a chance to go there.

If I could have the vacation of my dreams anywhere in the world, I would travel to England.I would choose this place because I really like the England culture and the place is very beautiful, and there are many soccer players and I want to be a soccer player and there is good place to start my career. I would travel in the winter because I live in a tropical country so I prefer the winter to change some times.
To get there, I would have to travel by plane because it is on the other side of the world. I would take my family with me because I can’t live without my family and I would take my best friends too, for don’t lonely when I get there.
I would take clothes for the winter and to play soccer. As soon as I got there, I would take a walk in the city to know more the place.

If I could have the vacation of my dreams in some place in the world, I think I would travel to Australia. I would choose this country because my father said to me that he loved when he went there. He visited it and told me that Australia is a very polite country and all people are friendly and happy. He want to live there for 3 months but my mother don't want to move.

I would go there in the end of the year because is when school is over. To get there, I would travel by plane with my father, my sister and some friends, We are going to stay in Sydney because is the biggest city of Australia. I think I would like it. Will be the first vacation with my friends in a special place.

I have heard that Sydney is a good and famous city to visit because we have so many thinks to do and wonderful places to go. By the side of the bay we can find a beautiful and modern Sydney Opera House and we can go to the beaches. I also saw in the discovery channel photos about the beaches os Australia. There the water is very very very clean and we can see dolphins and all kind of fishs. The weather is hot so we can use short and t-shirts all the day.

In my first day I will spend my morning sleeping, my afternoon swimming and my evening in some local to see nice and yung people to dance all night with my friends. Australia will be like a wonderland, my wonderland. If I have some day a chance to go there I will have fun !!!

If I could have the vacation of my dreams anywhere in the world, I think I would travel to some island at pacific like Tahiti. I would choose this place because it is a paradisiacal place with beautiful beaches and a lot of sun. I would travel on summer because it would be better to enjoy it.

To get there, I think I would travel by plane because it's farway from Brazil. I would take my best friends with me and my family too because in a beautiful place like this you have to enjoy with the people that you like.

I have heard that Tahiti is hot for all year so I would take just t-shirts, skirts, dresses and bikinis. The water there is transparent just like in Fernando de Noranha. See the sunset in pacific, because it’ s very beautiful and in Brazil it’s impossible because here the coast is bathed by altantic ocean.

As soon as I get there I would talk to the people who live there.During the morning I would go to the beach and enjoy the exotic nature and wait for the sunset, I would invite my friends to make a luau, and I would drink exotic cocktails. It would be perfect.

United States

If I could have the vacation of my dreams anywhere in the world, I would travel to United States. I would choose this place because I have many friends that have been there and they told me they Ioved it. And there are many people in my family that have been there too. I would go there in December or January, because it is when school is out and I have been informaded that on this part of the year there is very cold, and I like it.

To get there, I woud have to travel by plan. This travel would be great because I would take my best friend Gabriela with me. She, as me, loves go shopping, and there are many. And there, the things aren’t expensive as in Brazil. And she loves amusement parks too.

I would take cold clothes, some jackets, some pants, some blouses and a pair of sneakers. I wouldn’t take too much clothes because I would buy a lot there. As soon as I got there, I would know the hotel and the city I would stay. They say there are exelents hotels there.

The places I would go to would be the shopping mall. I love go shopping and buy many things. I would do this in the morning because it might be Iess people at the mall this time. I would spend the afternoon going to the famous amusement parks of there and having fun. At night, I would go dinner out of the hotel. It would be a nice vacation.

If I could have the vocation of my dreams anywhere in the world, I would travel to Caribbean, I really want to go to this place because there looks like one tropical and exotic place where has many clear beaches and there are a lot of differents drinks and foods, a lot of nice people, many parties and many things to see. I think there would be really fun. I would go there in the summer to take advantage of all beaches.

To get there, I think I would travel by ship because it would be more fun and benefit. This would be great because I would take my cousin Jéssica or my boyfriend César with me because they are the best presence to guarantee a great time at all places. I think they would love to travel to another country with me.

I imagine that there is really hot 50 I would take dresses, shorts, a lot of bikinis, skirts, sleeveless shirts, sandals and two pairs of paints. As soon as I go there, I would go for a swim and drink something. People say that there has a lot of exotic foods se I would go to a restaurant first. Then I would visit the local villages and find out about typical parties.

The places I would go to would be the beaches bars, first. I love to prove exotic foods in exotic places. in the morning I would walk on the beach to make use of solar energy. in the afternoon I would take a tan at beach and find out oyster to eat because I lave it. At night I would certainly go to the best parties that would have there.

If I could choose anywhere in the world, I think the best place to spend my vacationwould be Ireland. In my opinion, cold places are better, because with thick closes, we can stand it, but when it's hot, you can't do anything to take the heat away. Ireland is a cold, but no too cold place. I've alredy seen beatiful landscapes in images of this country. I think I would travel in the winter, because, as I mentioned I prefer cold than hot.

For this vacation, I would probably take an airplane, or maybe a boat or a ship. I would go alone,because, when we are alone, we can choose where we go, and how will we spend the time.

As I told, I would take thick clothes and maybe some pair s of boots. As soon as I get there, I would findmy hotel and plan how would the time be spend.

If this trip were possible, I would try to know the more places as I could. I would go to those beautiful mountains and try to get more stamps for my collection. That would be great!

New Zealand

If I could have the vacation of my dreams, I would go to New Zeland, because the Lord of the Ring was set there, the landscapes are very beuatiful and it is the "mother" of radical sports, the highest bungee jump is there. I would travel in the summer because I could do parachuting, bungee jump, scuba diving and rapel. If it is winter, the air would be so cold and I would not realize the radical sports.

To get there, I would travel by plane because it is the fastest way. I would take a corageous friend with me, because she would have to convince me to do the sports.

I would travel for all island, so I would take comfortable pants and blouses, sneakers to walk and my clothes would be for summer. As soon as I got there I would do a quite program, like walk in the city to know places like supermarkets, public telephones and basic things. After I would there for a long I would do the crazy sports.

In the mornings I would visit historic places, in the evenings I would do radical sports and buy clothes, souvernirs and practice my English with people who was born there. At night I would go to pubs and dance clubs. But some days I would to rest in hotel, go to a cafe and take many pictures.

I would like to stay there for, at least, one month because I would do all good things the country provides.



If I could travel to any part of the world, I would travel to Portugal.If I travelled there, I would learn more about the culture about the country, I would visit most beaches that I can, I would eat the most differents kinds of food and I would visit the historical centers. the sooner thing I would do when I got there, is eat their pastry.

If I went to Portugal, I would go there with my parents and I would go there in December because I would buy me a Christmas present there and I would have more time to stay there.I would go there by plane because it's the faster way to get there.I would take some jackets because the weather would be very cold there.
I would spend all my days doing crazy things, like spending all my money on last day in the airport and buying useless objects.

In my first day, in morning, I would search some field to play soccer, in the afternoon, I would go to the beach, in the evening, I would go to the mall and at night, I would go to a restaurant.

The sooner thing I would do when i got there, is eat their pastry.
I really know, if some day I went to Portugal, I would be very happy.



My dream vacation

In my dream vacation I would go to Egypt. I would travel there because Egypt has lots of things to do, for example: I would visit the pyramids; I would see the faraos and ride a camel. If I could choose the time of the year I would choose the winter because Egypt would be less hot than the summer.
I would travel there by plane of course, because planes are faster than others ways of transportation but I think it would be more expensive. If I have the chance to bring someone with me I would bring my grandmother and my mother because both loves Egypt and they are fascinated to visit it.
I know that Egypt is hot all the year so I would take: ten white t-shirts, eight shorts, one flip flops and one that. As soon as I got there I would rent three camels to my family and I, then we would go with a guide to the pyramids to see the farads and go to the city to rent one place for we stay and know the Egyptian people.
Certainly I would take the mornings to appreciate the Egyptian food and visit the pyramids, in the afternoons I would visit the Cairo’s museum which is a very interesting and important museum in Egypt and know more about the historical monuments of that beautiful place, then I would sit and wait for the sun sat, after that I would rest and wait for the other day

I dream to go to many places around the world, but one that I would certainly go is Disney. I’ve always dreamed of going there because of the parks and the magic of Disney world. If I could choose a time of year to go, it would be at the end of the year, like December, because at this time of year it's colder there, and I love cold places. Another reason is because I would like to spend New Year's there.
To get there I would go by plane, it’s one of the best ways to get there and I love flying. I would go with my family and some friends. I’ve always traveled with my family and I like it very much, it makes me more comfortable, and I would take some friends to make the fun bigger.
If I went there at the end of the year, I would take some warm clothes, but not so much, I would buy more clothes there because some are cheaper. As soon as I got there, I would take many pictures and start to see the stores and buy some things. I think when you’re traveling you don’t have much time to breathe, so I would do many things when I got there, as I would do while I’m there.
Well, I would spend all my days going to the parks, riding rollercoasters, buying things, taking pictures, I would just stop to sleep a few hours. If I could go to Disney, I would have to take a vacation for the vacation.

Final version


I would like to travel to many places, but I think the vacation of my dreams is around all Europe, because if I go there, I can visit many countries in a few days and see the most beautiful and popular places in the world. In addition, I would like to go in the summer, because the weather there is very cold during all the year and I hate cold weather, so I would like the European temperature only in the summer.
To get there, I am sure I would go by plane, because it is faster and I don't like to stay closed in a place for a long time. However, I would take that famous train, which travels around Europe and stops in each country. In my dreams, I would take all people I like with me, my family and my friends. This way, I would have fun at all the moments, because there are moments that I need my family, but sometimes only my friends make me feel happy.
When I got there, I would like to go to the most famous touristic attractions and historical sites. But then, I would like to visit beaches, parties, stores and many other places. For that, I would take all kinds of clothes: a lot of bikinis, jeans, t-shirts, jackets, shorts and sweaters.
I am sure I wouldn't stay at home any time. I would wake up early to walk in the streets and then, in the afternoons, I would visit unusual places. At night, I would go out to make new friends at parties and restaurants. This vacation would be unforgettable!



One place I would love to go is Antarctica. Antarctica is the south pole and it's the coldest place on Earth. I would like to go there because I had never seen snow and Antarctica is the best place to practice snow sports and I would love to see penguins and polar bears. I loved to go there in the winter because the place is colder.

To go to Antarctica have only two ways, by plane or by ship.I think I would go by plane because by ship the travel is very long and tiring. I would take my friends to the vacation because with their we can have a lot of fun and I like to travel with my friends.

Antarctica is a very cold place and it's obvious I have to take very thick jackets, pants, and sneakers, so I will have to take a lot of luggage. As soon I got there I would make a snow ball and throw on the head of my friend and this would be very fun, after this I would meet new friends.

In this place doesn't have a lot of things to do because it's very cold and doesn't have bars, and luxury hotels. I would spent the days in the houses having fun with my friends and in the afternoon I would go out to see the beautiful animals, mostly the penguins and the polar bears but the things I would frequently do is sleep and eat. So I would love to go there.

Six Flags

If I could visit any place in the world it would certainly be the six flags. It is a (chain of) park with the most scary roller coasters in the world! it's amazing!! I think it's at New York.
I would go there, in July or December because that's when me and my boyfriend have time to spend.

I actually don't know how to get there, I guess we would have to pick up a flight at São Paulo, then another flight to New York and then go by car with the help of a map (and getting lost about every 5 minutes). I would bring Paulinho, my boyfriend, with me because we both have a high sense of adventure, we would probably stop at some places to do radical sports if we could or to take pictures of the places we were at and get to know something about their history.

I like to bring everything with me when I'm traveling everywhere far from home, you never know when you'll need to use them. But since we will not stay at one place only, I guess I would not bring a big luggage, just some make up, a few skirts, underwears, t-shirts, trainers, a light dress to wear when it's too hot and some groceries to eat on the trip.

The first thing I would do would be go to The Kingda Ka it is simply the tallest, fastest roller coaster on earth. It breaks all world records for coaster speed and height, zooming from 0 to 128 mph in 3.5 seconds and catapulting you 45 stories into the sky!! I love adrenaline!
I would spend my morning and afternoon there and in the evenings I would go tour... Times Square, South Street Seaport, Liberty Island, I would be the best trip of my life if I had a chance to go there.

New Zealand

A place that I'd love to go is New Zealand. There are so many places where we can play extreme sports. I really love this kind of sport. When I travel to radical places, I always practice so many differents sports. The best time of year to go there is at the end of it because at this time it's summer there.
My dream is to go there on a cruise because you can start enjoying your trip before getting there. I'd take my friends with me. We are really lively people. We always have some fun together.
One problem would be the clothes to take. I don't know what the people wear there, but I think I could take my regular clothes and I would buy some more as soon as I got there.
I would visit new places in New Zealand. At night we'd go to clubs and dance all night long. I know there are so many outdoor raves, and my friends and me love to go to this kind of party. In conclusion we would definitely have the best time there.

São Paulo

I have always dreamed about going to São Paulo, because trere are many hot spots to visit, like skate parks, water parks and historical sites. If I had the chance to go to São Paulo, I wouldn’t think twice. One nice season to go there would be the summer, because it is warm and you don’t have to worry about wearing warm clothes and you can also enjoy the water parks better.
It doesn’t matter how to get there, because I like traveling by car, seeing the enviroment and I like to travel by plane too, because it doesn’t spend so much time and it is possible to see many things too. I would go with my family, because everybody in my family would like to go there. And I would also ask my friend Alan to join us, because he likes skateboarding too and he would enjoy it a lot.
I would take my day–by-day clothes, because the weather in São Paulo looks like Brasília’s weather. However, I would take my swimming suits and my flip flops too, because I would like to visit the water parks. In this travel, I would first go around the hotel and discover what there is to do and after I would go inside the hotel, looking for attractions.
I would try to enjoy the city as much as I can, going to touristic attractions, as parks and historical sites. And I could also go to the hot spots for skateboarders, in the street or at the popular skate parks. However, I would spend some evenings at the hotel, playing snooker and table tennis with my friends. This could be so exciting. In the mornings I could go to parks and in the afternoons I could go skateboarding.

Mythbusters is an interesting American TV program, where two unusual guys, named Jamie and Adam, make lots of unusual experiments. They test the popular myths in their labs, and sometimes outside them. In each episode, Jamie and Adam invent some different machines with their own notions o use some that are already done.

In the last episode I've seen, for example, they made lots of tests and experiments with guns and coins. One of the machines they had invented in this episodewas one that throws coins. Adam asked Jamie if he thought a coin could kill someone, with the impact. Jamie told im that he thought that was impossible. In the end I saw Jamie was right, it wasn't possible. The coin didn't have sufficient wieght for penetrating the human body, injurying one of our vital organs.

In general, I hate soap operas, but I like TV series and programs. I think this kind of program is very interesting and useful for our lives. Mythbusters is one of my favorites. For me, a bad or boring mythbusters episode doesn't exist. It's unusual, but nice.

In the last episode Homer was singing some songs at christmas but he was bored with the same songs ever so he said that he would create one song, so he did it. One week after he created the song, he got bored too because his song was playing everywhere. He decided to travel to anywhere that was peaceful, so he said to his family that they were going to travel on the following day. They travelled to a farm and everyone was tranquil there.

Kenan and Kell

When I was 6 years old I used to like “Kenan and Kell”. That TV program was very funny. My sister and I used to watch them after school time. All the episodes were really interesting and we found that they performed very well .We liked it when the program was going to start and Kell said:”aaaaah, let’s go!”

My favorite episode was when Kenan (the fat boy) and his best friend Kell
(The dummy gay) saw Chicago Bulls’ game in a Saturday morning on TV. They decided to eat breakfast together in Kenan’s house. So Kenan asked Kell to do the breakfast for him. When Kenan was eating the atum sandwich he choked and felt very bad. So they had an idea to process the atum supplier, but in the end Kenan found out that Kell had putted in the sandwich a metal screw without noticing it. That made me laughs a lot.

“Kenan and Kell” TV program had more characters like: Chris Potter (The boss of Kenan), Kyra Rockmore (Kenan’s sister who loves Kell), Roger Rockmore (Kenan’s father who hates Kell), Sheryl Rockmore (Kenan’s mother), Sharla (The girl who loves Kenan and works with him), Janet (the nerd of the school) and Briana (the girl who Kenan loves).

This TV program was finished when Kell died in the real life. It was terrible because I liked him very much , he was very cute. I didn’t saw the lest episode.

Now a days have other TV program who imitate “Kenan and Kell”. This TV program calls “Drake and Josh” it is not funny.

My favorite Tv series is Lost. It is about people that had had a plane accident and fell in a unknown and mysterious island. There are many characters, but who more appear are Jack, Sawyer, Katy, Locke and Hugo. Jack is a doctor and is like a leader. In the past, he had problems with his dad. Locke was paralyzed, and when he fell on the island, he could walk. Locke is the hunter and has problems about leadership with Jack. Hugo had had a simple life until he won the lottery. He believes the numbers that he used on lottery are cursed, and he saw the same numbers on island. Sawyer was a blower and is a cold man. He fight with everyone, but deep down, he just need atention, because he had a hardly childhood. Katy was a fugitive's law because she killed her stepfather. On island, she is the only one who is amazing with Sawyer and she feels something for Jack.
On last chapter I've watched, they found another group that was on the airplane too, and they started to live together. Hugo fell in love with a psychology that was in the other group. Jack and Locke had a prisoner: Locke believes that the prisoner was in island before them and wanna hurt them. Jack believes in the prisoner's version that his ballom felt there. Other three people went to look for the ballom to confirm the history. Sawyer played a dirty trick on Locke and Katy, and now he controls the guns.
I think Lost is the best one because we don't know the survivers' past and it is seemed along the serie, making us curious about the next chapter and about what are going to hapen on island. It is unpredictable!
Besides the history, the cenary and actors are very beautiful and work very well.

The O.C

When I was younger I would sit every afternoon and night to watch my favourite soap opera. As I grew older, my taste for soap operas got much better because thesedays I prefer to watch more famous series that deals with teenager's feelings and problems, so I have chosen to talk about my favourite soap opera of all times: The OC.
The main characters are Ryan Atwood and Marisa Cooper, they are around our age: 16/17 years old. Ryan had serious problems with dealing with his family. Marisa is the most famous girl of her school and thought her family were perfect. They were not. Ryan went to live at Sandy's Cohen house in Orange County. There he met his son, Seth, whom he became friends and fell in love with Marisa.

The last episode I saw started with the sinopse of the previous ones.
Caleb Nichol died and everyone went to his funeral, meanwhile Kirsten, his older daughter, was having serious problems with drinking and went to a rehabilitation center. Ryan found out that his brother tried to abuse his girlfriend and went to deal it with him. Things got pretty ugly between them and Ryan was losing the fight. Trey was almost killing him when Marisa entered the house and shot him on his heart. He died.

The O.C is a very famous show because everyone wants to see whats is coming next: his fights with Marisa, the stupid things Seth used to do to date Summer, it was all very fascinating because this actually happens in "real life".
I was so addicted to it that I spent all my money buying season 1 and 2! I definetly love it.


My Wife and Kids

This TV series is about the life of a family. There's Michael Kyle, the family's father, who thinks that is never wrong. Jay Kyle (his wife) thinks that beauty is all. There are their children too: Junior (the oldest-17) isn't the most intelligent; Claire, the vain girl (14), and Kady (the youngest-7). They are a funny family that's always in troubles and make us very interested to see others episodes.

In the last episode, the family was travelling to Hawai. They went to the hotel and when they were meeting the place, Junior met a girl and imediately got in love. In the next morning, Jay wanted Michael to woke up and went out with her, but he said that didn't want to do it, he wanted to sleep more. Then she went out alone and didn't talk to him during the day. In the night , Michael said that he was sorry and invited Jay to have dinner. She said that excused him and acepted to go dinner. When they were going out, they told the children that if they wanted something, they could call to the reception and put on the account. When they went, the children bought too many things and put on the account. At the end of the episode, Michael went to the reception to pay the account and went home, but there was a big file. He discovered that the flight was earlier than he thought. And there was another problem: Junior didn't want to go, he wanted to stay on Hawai with his new girlfriend. Michael told Jay to solve the problem. Jay told Junior that if he really wanted to stay in Hawai, he could, after all he was 17. Junior decided to come back and say bye to his girlfriend. When Michael were being attended on the reception, he saw the account and got very furios with the children, but he didn't have time to do anything because they had to go to the airport imediately. During the way, Jay said that although the confusion, their vacation was very good.

Television series are, in my opinion, a very good type of TV program that make us laugh and can, many times, teach us something. I think that they're better than soap operas, that show, many times, bad things.

My wife and kids

My wife and kids” is a TV serie that Michael Kyle, an affectionate man, who is married with a pretty and prosperous woman, and he is father of three children. It seems to be a typical happy family, but not for Michael, who would like that all his family had a different behavior. He wanted his son, Junior, was an intelligent adolescent; his older daughter, Clair, still been a child and the youngest daughter followed everything that he says, instead of contesting and imposing her will. Michael thinks that his wife, Jay, would have to be the typical woman of house and zealous mother. They live in a typical house in the United States.

In the last episode Michael and Jay went to Clair's formation party , without she wants. Jay tried to enjoy this formation as if it was hers, because when her formation happened, she was giving birth to Junior. But without intention Michael and Jay started to ruin this so special day for Clair, who wanted to be alone with her friends. But in the end Jay and Michael said they were sorry to her.

I love TV series. I think they are really beter than soap operas and for me ''My wife and kids'' is one of the best TV series , because it’s funny, and talks about real facts of a family. And I loved the last episode, because it told about a similar story that happened in my life some months ago.


The Simpsons

The Simpsons is a comic TV program. It is about a family who lives in Springfield, a city in the United States, and they always have problems. The caracthers are Homer(father), Margie(mother) and the childrens Bart, Lisa and Maggie. Homer works on a nuclear industry and his boss is very selfish. The Simpsons is a cartoon which makes everyone laugh.

In the last episode, the city of Springfield had been invaded by burglars and everyone in the city had a gun, except Homer.
Margie told Homer to doesn't bought a gun but he didn't hears. So he went to a gunshop and said to the attendent he needed a gun but the attendent didn't sold the gun. Three days after Homer went to the gun shop again and the attendent finally sold a gun, one revolver. Then Homer shows the gun to everyone and entered in a secret organization of guns with his friends, but one day the friends went to his house and saw he doing all things with the revolver and they asked if he used the gun for anything, because this is prohibited. In the end Homer gaves the gun to Margie to take it away, but the she didn't because she told to Homer she had a lot of power with a gun.

In my opinion The Simpsons is a very good cartoon to watch and to have fun, because it makes everyone laugh and shows the reality for a funny way. If you have time, watch The Simpsons and a lot of TV programs who are similar to its. I love The Simpsons and a lot of cartoons which are very funny and its makes everyone happy. They are a good thing to pass the time and a good thing to watch with anybody.

Desperate Housewives

Desperate Housewives is a relatively new series. The fourth season is about to start in the United States. It´s about five women in their late thirties and early fourties who live in the same street, Wisteria Lane, and who have something in common: they lost a good friend, who committed suicide. In fact, all episodes are narrated by this dead character, Mary Alice. Gabrielle is an ex-model who married an apparently rich man who was later arrested for fraud in his business and whom she later divorced. Lynnette is a successful businesswoman who stopped working to take care of her kids but later switches roles with her husband Tom, who becomes a stay-home dad. Bree seems to be the perfect woman with the perfect life: a successful doctor as a husband, two nice teenage children and a beautiful house, which she takes care of meticulously; however, we later see that it´s all about appearances. Susan is a divorced mother who is looking for the love of her life; she´s probably the truest of the the five friends. Finally, Edie, who become friends with the other four only later, is a sexy, provocative woman in her fourties who will do anything to get a man. There´s a little bit of everything in Desperate Housewives – romance, drama, adventure and even horror.

In the last episode I watched, Gabrielle married the city mayor but got disappointed when she heard him telling his father that he had married her in order to obtain more votes from the Latin Americans. Her ex-husband, Carlos, found out that Edie, his girlfriend was lying to him when she said she was trying to have a baby with him. He saw her birth-control pills in her bag. During Gabrielle´s wedding reception, she found Carlos drinking and kissed him. Bree appeared after a long honeymoon in Europe and, to everyone´s surprise, she was pregnant. However, later, when she was already at home, she removed the fake belly she was wearing and called her daughter, Danielle, who is the one who is really pregnant, and told her to stay at the boarding school until the baby is due. Danielle said that she hated it there, but her mom didn´t care much. The end of the episode was dramatic: Edie hanged herself!

I like to watch Desperate Housewives because it´s a mixture of comedy and drama. I admit that sometimes it can get too violent and farfetched, but I have fun watching it anyway. In a way, I identify with the characters, who are around my age and have the same problems I do. TV series are more interesting to watch than soap operas because you can miss an episode and understand the following one easily, since each episode has a beginning, a middle, and an end.

Final Version

7 Sins

This soap opera is set in São Paulo, some places are in a rich neighborhood and another are in a poor neighborhood. The story is about the seven sins: pride, wrath, greed, envy, lust, sloth and gluttony. There are 3 main characters: Beatriz, Clarice and Dante. Beatriz is a very rich and powerful woman. She won a statue of her father that contains a secret. She is very silly, because of that, she needs help from an angel (Custodia). Beatriz also falls in love with Dante.Dante is an honest and kind man who works now for Beatriz. He is married with Clarice. His wife is a simple woman that has a very annoying mother.

In the last episode, Beatriz kissed Dante and Clarice fought with her in the street. After that, Clarice went home with Dante. The day after Dante said all the truth to Clarice, they engaged again. When Dante left home, Clarice’s mother told her to make him jealous. At this same time, on the rich neighborhood, Custódia told Beatriz an advertisement, but Beatriz didn’t understand it and thinks that Dante needs to believe that Clarice has an affair to the couple break up. With that wrong, but good idea, Beatriz promoted Custódia to her personal assistant.

Soap operas, for me, needs to be different because most soap operas talk about the real life; so it becomes boring some times. However, I like some of the funny soap operas because its makes I laugh. Seven sins is a really famous soap opera because it is funny and shows all the people’s debility. On the other hand, it is interesting to make us think about our lives.


Chocolate com Pimenta

Chocolate com Pimenta was a very famous soap opera about an innocent girl, called Ana Francisca. She went to Ventura to live with her grandmother and started to love Danilo, the most popular boy in the city. They started to date, but Olga, a girl who loves Danilo, made Ana believes that he only wanted to humiliate her. Then, Ana married Ludovico, because she was pregnant. Ludovico was the owner of a a chocolate factory and when he died, Ana became the owner of this factory.

In the last episode, Ana discovered Olga's trick, because a boy, who used to be Olga's friend, said everything to Ana. Then, she went to Danilo's house to tell him why she had married Ludovico. Ana told Danilo she had a son with him before marry Ludovico. Danilo asked her why she hadn't told him before and Ana said she thought he didn't love her. Ana recouped her factory, which was stolen by her sister-in-law, Jezebel, who wanted to gain a lot of money with this factory. Finally, Ana Francisca and Danilo got married.

I like to watch soap operas only to spend my time, but some soap operas are silly. However, there were some soap operas that were very famous. Chocolate com Pimenta was one of those. Many people liked this soap opera because it was exciting and unusual. Moreover, it was really funny all the time. To conclude, I loved this soap opera, like all the country.


Drake & Josh

This funny TV series is about Drake Parker and Josh Nichols, two completely different brothers who have to live together with lots of fun. Everything begins Drake’s mother gets engaged with Josh’s father and makes the two of them share the same house and the same room. To get worse, they have to handle with Drake's little sister, Megan, whose parents think is a little angel, but her hooby is to get trouble for Drake and Josh, who call her a little demon.

The last episode I remember I've seen was when Drake and Josh wanted to be the firsts to ride on the biggest rollercoaster, that's premiere was going to be that night. But when they had everything planed, their parents told them to stay home and watch Papa Nichols, their grandfather, who had made a surgery and would sleep for some time. But when their parents left, they told Megan to stay and watch Papa Nichols. But Megan said that she would ride on that rollercoaster too. So after a Megan's blackmail, they decided to take her and call his friends to watch Papa Nichols. Then they had to go, ride the rollercoaster and come back before their parents. But to get worse, they got on trouble and had to go to the end of the line three times. Then in the end they could get at home before their parents and everything was fine.

In my opinion watching some TV series as entertainment is really good. You can rest and forget a few of your busy days enjoying the stories. I think Drake & Josh is a good choice because you can laugh a lot with the funny stories, relax and sometimes, improve your english.


My Wife and Kids

This Tv series is set in a lively suburb where there is a nice family. There is Michael Kyle, a loving husband and bald patch man who teaches his three children some of life’s lessons, he does so with his own brand of wisdom, discipline and humor, his favorite sport is golfe. His wife is Jay Kyle who worry about her appearance, she always wants to lose weight. They have three kids, they are Junior Kyle - a not very smart guy but creative - Claire Kyle - who loves shopping - and Kady Kyle who is spoiled child.

The last episode I had seen, they were going to Hawai on vocations, at first one gay helped Claire to cath her backpacks and suitcases, she couldn´t resist and she flirted the guy, his father felt jealous and told her to get out there. Junior knew one girl who he promised her that he will never leave her alone. Mike and Jay used they time together and happy with family.
My opinion obout it:

In my opinion, TV series are better than soap opares because whe can watch any episode without have seen the last epsode because all of it are different historys.

Rebelde is a Mexican soap opera. The story starts in ‘Elite Way School’ a particular school for riches people. Mia is the most popular girl at the school; she worries a lot about ‘what’s to wear’ . Miguel is an impulsive boy who comes to the capital to study in this school with a scholarship. Mia and Miguel cannot admit that they love each other. Roberta is daughter of a famous singer and hates the new school, and she loves Diego, but they are always fighting. Diego is son of an import politician and he loves music but his father doesn’t agree with that, and are always traing to manipulate Diego to do what him wants, Diego has a secret love for Roberta but he pretends that hates her. Lupita is a very intelligent girl; she is pour and can’t pay the school so she got a scholarship. Giovanni is a boy who only cares about money and he doesn’t supports the ideaof became pour one day. These six teenagers have the same passion: music and they formed a band: RBD.

This soap opera has already finished. The end was perfect. After many problems and fights, in the last chapter Miguel asked Mia if she wanted to marry with him and she said yes. Diego and Roberta stopped to fight and admitted the love about each other and Diego told Roberta that he wanted to be with her forever.Lupita started to go out with Santos a guy who had always loved her and Giovanni learned that family and friends are much more important than money. In addition, the band makes a lot of success, it is a real band right now, and the six actors are making concerts around the world.

In my opinion, this soap opera makes a lot of success because it talked about; the problems that all teenagers have, about love, money, fights etc and was very funny . It was very good. Sometimes I decided to no go out with my friends just to see it, I bought the DVD’s that have all the soap and went to the RBD's concert. I think soap operas in general makes success because they show the real life with a lot of 'glamour'.



This soap opera talks about many groups of teenagers that study at Múltipla Escolha, and the principal story is about a couple that cannot be together.This time the most important couple is Marcela and André.André is a poor boy that is in love with Marcela, who is rich.Most part of story happens at Múltipla Escolha, Gigabyte, that is a snake bar and in the teenagers houses.There are others characters too, Vilma, one of Giga's owner; Siri and Rafa, Vilma's employees; João, the other owner of Giga; Priscila, João's girlfriend; Eduardo is a rich student of Múltipla Escolha and Francesca is his girlfriend.

In the last episode, Marcela returned to work for Fábio.Rafa and Siri called Vilma, but she didn't answer and they became worried.Eduard,who knows that Franscesca had danced before the accident, asked she to dance for him and she accepted.Priscila, João's girlfriend, is working at Gygabite and giving crazy orders, because she was thinking she was better than the others employees.The episode finished with Marcela, who had brokes up with André, kissing Fábio, her present boyfriend.

In my opinion Malhação is a mix of adventure, romance, comedy and this mix makes a very cool and interesting soap opera that makes us curious about the next chapter.

Trick It Out

For years , Trick it out has been customizing cars for MTV . But now they have invited the top auto shops in Los Angeles for a competition .On each episode of Trick it out , two teams of four cars artisans will represent their shops , each team gets 10 days and $15,000 to use their skills to customize a car . RJ Devera is the person that will determine the winner of each Trick it out episode , they chose him , because he’s one of the bests cars artisans in the USA . The team that loses has to give the car that they made to the other team.

Last episode Auto Accessory made a car with a “bat” style , it was black , and it was a HONDA . Auto Customization was the other team , they made a car with a “club” style , it had a DJ machine on it , and a lot of TVs with DVDs . The winner was Auto Accessory . They were better than Auto Customization.

In my opinion Tv programs are really important to entertain our life and make us happy . I think that Trick it out is the best program because I love cars and in this program I can see how the artisans customize them . If you like cars you should watch this program , it’s great!
