Do you think that young people spend too much money on clothes?

Yes, especially young people, we live in a world where our image ir our letter of introduction, and we all want to make a good impression in front of others. More than out of necessity, we all buy to satisfy our needs and desires.
What desires? We want to always be fashionable, buy that jacket that beautiful actress has on the television ad, those shoes worn by all the people of the institute, or those pants wich are trendy this 2018.
In our culture, the achievement of a state of internal satisfaction is confused with the acquisition of an object.
We often buy with the aim of achieving a state of tranquility, stability and internal confidence. It has to do with the power of acquisition, as if the power of adquisition could make us feel internally more powerful, stable and secure.
In short, we can say that the more internal needs are unknown, the more shopping we do. It is a mistake, we must buy the right clothes which are necessary for day
to day.
Of course, we can give ourselves whims of clothes and shoes that we like a lot, but I should never become an obsession to buy everything to see.

The fashion spies

- Do you think that  young people spend too much money on clothes and cosmetics?

I think that young people are looking forward to getting the latest fashion too much and they are too worried about what the others say and think about them. With this I don't want to say that they aren't able to do and buy whatever they want without the necessity of being put under pressure by other young people and I also think that the blame is not just for the sons or daughters but also for the parents that give them the money for their desires.

An opinion essay

Often, while I was doing history or philosophy I was listening often the questions: "is it useful this?" or "this is a waste of time", Ialso was asking the same thing myself and after a time someone gave to me the answer and made me see that it was useful.
The person who was answered me seid to me that history is useful, firstly, not to forget the fact of the past, for example, the people who have died for defending the rights of the persons and thank to them we have advanced as a society. And secondly to try not to make the same mistakes of the past.
Also, he said to me that the philosophy is useful to think about our actions and about the things that have happened and happen in the present.
In my opinion, this person is in the correct and I agree with him. So instead of not paying attention in these classes I started learning from them.
To conclude with this theme, I don't belive that history and philosophy are a waste of time and money.

An opinion essay

The world is full of crime, violence, sickness, bad diet, and sedentariness,... Personally, I think that all the problems are important but, if I had to choose one, I would choose the bad diet and sedentariness because in my opinion, it is like the root of a lot of problems big get still.

The scientific evidence show us that the diet can influence on the mood, the health, on the mind,... Also it can prevent a lot of sickness. We are what we eat! There are a lot of scientific studies of the WHO (World Health Organization) wich say that the nutrition can prevent the AIDS, cancer, bone fragility, obesity, diabetes T2, and chronic diseases like fibromyalgia, Alzheimer,...

The sedentariness, from my point of view, is also a big problem of the society because it can cause obesity (for lack of movement) and the obesity can unchain cardiovascular sickness, diabetes T2, bone and articular problems, some kinds of cancer,... and a lot of more. The movement help us to improve our health and to be more actives. One fun way to move is doing sport!

I am sure that if you eat good (real food) and practise sport, you will be more healthy and you will have lest risk of suffering illnesses.

''The teenage years are the most important years of your life''

Personally, I agree with this statement because it's when you are a teen, when you can build your future. In my opinion, when you are old, or older than when you were young, you can't enjoy fully your life, but while you are young you can study what you want, do things that you couldn't do if you are an old person, you can meet persons that they could be your friends, etc...

I strongly believe that when you are a teen, you have to make desicions that will change your life, so I think that it is a hard era for all of us. And of course, the most typical thing when you are a teen are the arguments with your parents, brothers and friends. Another typical thing are the charge of opinions and your preferences.

From my point of view, the teen year's are the most important ones, funny and hard years of a person, but they are the era that a person enjoy's the most.

Nowadays, social networks are very important elements in our society, up to the point that it is difficult to find someone who does not have a Facebook or Instagram account. In muy opinion, we should be careful with them.

First of all, social networks have the effect of reducing the face-to-face talk. It is obvious that when chatting with someone we can not know how he really feels, in contrast with talking. In my opinion, it is a danger because it can make us much more superficial. For that reason, we ougth to try to meet our friends physically and drink a coffee together, which is amazing.

Moreover, I strongly believe that social networks like Instagram can make us be very worried about the image we project to the others. For example, when I take a photo of me, I care more about whether my friends will like it rather than whether I will. This can create serious problems of self-esteem.

Un summary, I believe that social networks may be problematic because they may make us more superficial anda also influence negtively our self-esteem.

Personally, I like these types of topics a lot and I am sure that the teenege years are the most important years of our life. The teneege years are a beautiful chapter in life, it is in this moment when the children start to grow and they start to experiment a lot of new sensations and emotions, which they never had left.

However, if we focus a little more on the subject, I think that this important time is very valuable for many reasons:

Firstly, in this moment the brain of children is revolutionized, therefore they improve their reason and it is for this that teneeger figth o argue whit their parents. The advantages of this is that teens begin to become independent and take their own desicion without depending so much on their parents.

Secondly, it is the famous stage of crazy love. It is completely normally, which in this age boys and girls start to feel "Stranger Thinngs" towards the opposite sex. Begin the getaways, the dates with their boyfriends or girlfriends, the love letters and the gifts and above all the change of mood of the young. Unfortunately, maybe after a time teens will be sad because of a love deception but nothing happens, parents, friends or family will always be there to comfort.

Finally, it is true that young people can bring problems or even hinder coexistence at home because it is possible that they begin their rebellious stage but it is a part of life and at some point they are only memories, therefore you have to enjoy a lot and take advantage of the best years of life!.

An opinion essay

My topic is the "violence in TV/Computergames

Hello my name is Anthony and today I want to talk about a topic that has todo with the efeects of  violence on tv or in videogames, for me it is an intersting topic because I have always heard that, people changer depending on the influences that they receive from others but I, i think  that it has nothing to do whit it because each one is responsible  for what he does and what he should not do .

I'ts true, something has to do with what we see on TV and with the games with play .

People are influenced because they want to, no one forced them to do anything, but in live it is easier to blame others than to know how to admite the mistake we have made .

for this reason all people belive that people change because of the influences of society, but that's not my friends, case each human being chooses  what they want, not because someone tells them .    



I always think what would be the best sport for young people. Im several documents they say that choosing a sport for a young person should not be very hard. My opinion respect is that it is true.

Firstly, the sport you choose should not involve sacrifices or suffering, because that's bad for a young body.

Secondly, we must avoid sports that can cause a risk for the proper growth and development of bones.

Thirdly, I believe that athletics is one of the best sport for young people, because it's a pretty complex sport.

Finally, I think that sport is very important for young people.

To conclude, when you a young person, you had an epoch of  big changes. The exercise will be a great ally to overcome it successfully, it simply should not too hard.

An opinion essay

An opinion essay

- Live concerts are the best way to listen to music. What do you think?

In my opinion, this statement is false because it is generalizing and, for example,
I don’t like listening to music at concerts and I prefer to do the same thing at home and
I‘m sure that I’m not the only one.

I’m not saying that I don’t like going to concerts (because I do), but I like more listening
to music at my home, wearing my headphones, on my own and relaxed than listening
the same songs with a worst quality and, maybe, with cold or heat, because I consider
myself like a person that likes being in his own world and likes staying quiet at home.

To conclude, I just want to say that it is just my opinion and just like for me this statement
is absolutely a lie, perhaps, for someone else is the truth on the mere fact that every human
has a different way to see the world.

Facebook and Instagram

Today I'm going to talk about my opinion about Fcaebook and Instagram.

I will start talking about facebook, the social network created in 2004 that allows people to add friends, send messages and share links, photos and videos, among other things.
It is open to anyone who is more than thirteen years old, and only an email address is required to register.
To me personally, I think that for most of the teenagers this social network has tired us out. When I created my facebook account, it was very entretaining, but as the months went by, It was very boring to look at it. Despite the fact that young people like this social network every time less, it is still the most used in the world.
Most people my age just log in to Facebook to see their friends' birthday, but older people are still using the social network with the same frequency as before, since they may not have discovered others.
The problem is that it is boring to use it, every hundred articles or photos that come out, you can be interested in just three or four. Because apart from what your friends publish, there is also a lot of publicity and links to pages that you do not like. Also appear those photos that your friends have liked or which they have commented, is that what interests me? No!

And now, I will talk about my favourite social network, Instagram. It is a social network very easy to use, created in 2010 to share photos and videos with your friends or whoever you want. I have used this social network since five years ago, and today, I am addicted to Instagram, I can not spend more than a week without publishing one photo.
What I like the most, unlike Facebook, is that I "like" the photos, I know that my friends do not see this on the wall. I also like that photos of my interest appear, that only the publications of my friends or the people I want to see  appear.
Something else to add, is that I am very gossipy and I use it to look at the profile of many people.
I think one of the best things that it has, is that every few days, the creators introduce improvements and new updates that make the social network improve day by day.
As the content is more confused, is it less commercial and we like it more, it becomes more prone to use it, and that is why it is the third most used social network worlwide, after Fcaebook and Youtube.

In short, I think both are very good social networks, where you can spend a fun time, eack one with its good and bad things.
Just as I say that you can spend an entertaining time, I also say that it takes a lot of time, since many people ( I include mysef), we are addicts and we need to look our acount all the time. We should not depend on the mobile os these pages, because they take away a lot of time from other things.

An Opinion Essay


Personally, I think that to enjoy music, it isn't necessary to go to a concert. It's quite the apposite. To enjoy music it is better to listen to it at home.

In my opinion, music can be enjoyed anywhere, although concerts are not the best place. Even if you have the opportunity to listen to the song live, there is a lot of noise, and the noise of the people is heard more tan the voice of the singer. In my addition there is usually a very confusing atmosphere and there are always many people, so in a concert you are more concerned about your bag than the music you are going to listen to.

Secondly, most of the concerts people are standing on, and if you want a good seat you have to pay a much more expensive ticket. Besides, you aren't guaranteed that the singer does playback, I am sure that would be even more disappointing.

Thirdly, the money is also an important quiestion. There are tickets that are very expensive, and as I said before no one guarantees that everything will go well, at any time there could be an unexpected incident the other option and which is better, is to buy the album or download the music on You Tube, and listen serenely at home. Then you have guaranteed a good seat, tranquility, and confort, that in my view it's the most important thing.

In conclusion, if you really want to enjoy music, the best thing you can do is download the song online, go home, lay on the couch and put the music to the maximum or put on headphones. I strongly believe that in this way you will be more comfortable and calmer, and you will enjoy the music to the full.

So, what do you think?
