How Green I am

I think I’m a green person just in the way I can. Because in times like this I really don’t have much time to do special thing to take care our environment. I think that we all can learn about thins in a lot of moments and places; organizations and foundations in Chile always are teaching us about recycling and doing sports, etc. Now, in my family the habit of recycling is very common. We always try to keep the milk boxes in a different pot. And also we have three different pots to separate paper, glass and plastic garbage. Here in Santiago I always walk to everywhere because I don’t have a car, but I think that if I had one, I walk anyway. I don’t ride a bike because when I was 11, I was bit by a car, so since that day I don’t ride. I never throw trash on the floor, even when I smoke on the street. In Rengo there is not education about taking care our environment, but I think people are very aware. People in Santiago, instead, are always very hurry and they forget to use dumps. Here the diet is not so healthy. I think it’s hard to lead a healthy life here in Santiago, but I always try to do it. I don’t have much money to work with large organizations, but I try to keep my principles and tell my partners and my family that we have to keep a “green” life as much as possible.

The sense of life

This is a very hard question, very difficult to ask and to answer. It’s very personal, but also cultural. It’s trying to write about things I think every day when I sit on my bed and try to order my experiences. Is something that all of us have in common, the searching of the meaning of life, and I think that all of us, students, relatively, share some topics about our vision of life. I believe the most basic thing: my sense of life consist in searching of happiness, in short and long term. These include all the trips I want to do, all the dreams I have and my projects in general. Also be always be surrounded by my friends, family and good people. I also believe that life always are teaching us about being virtuous and calm, enjoy the simple things day by day. I don’t believe in pre-destination or things like that. I’m just trying to learn all languages (not idioms) of all the different cultures I can. It’s always very difficult to talk about something that we don’t know, but the thing that I’m sure that me and my friends and partners have in common is the sense of fight; for our rights, for a better country, and for all our ideals, because we have the certainty that we are in the right way.
