I’ve been thinking for an hour about which film I want to write. I’ve seen a lot of movies that I like very much so I have to decide one into the world of the cinema. There are many directors I appreciate like Woody Allen, David Lynch, Tarantino, Guy Ritchie, Scorsese, etc. and many kinds of films like the independent cinema, Latin American cinema, foreign films, and more. For this opportunity I choose the movie called AMÉLIE (in French, “Le Fabuleux Destin D’ Amélie Poulain”). As you can see, this is a French movie directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, which premiered in 2001 starring Audrey Tautou, a good and adorable actress. The movie is classified as a comedy. Actually, is about a simple story of a young girl that works in a restaurant and lives alone. One day she decides to changes her life. In her department, Amélie discovered a hidden box of a child in the bathroom that contains toys and photos that have 40 years. Then, she decides to search the person who owns that little box by a special way. If he is happy, she’ll dedicate her life to helping others. And so it is. She invented originals ways to caused happiness to others. For example, when she took the arm of a blind person walk through a market as he whispers what she will see.
This is a special movie because it shows simples acts and ways to enjoy the life. I love the character; Amélie is an innocent, humble, sweet and special person. She enjoys simple things like reaching into a bags of beans, breaking the caramel cover of Crème Brule, to see the faces of the people in the cinema, etc.
I cannot forget to say that I enjoyed so much the music of the film performed by Yann Tiersen, the photography, the script and all the performance.

The Vote

I have living in Chile for about eleven years so I never vote. The old law not allow me to vote because I must to have 21 years old and five years of residence in Chile. I fulfil the last requirement but for the last elections of president I wasn’t 21 years old. One of my duties as Argentina is that I can vote at the Embassy of Argentina to the presidential elections, when Cristina Kirchner won. In this opportunity I didn’t vote because I’m out from politics of my country, I don’t know well about the reality day by day.
For this election I was offended with my father because I could vote but he never told me. We discussed and he was convinced he told me about the change of the law. This new law
register us automatically in the base of dates. So I didn’t participate even I never checked if I was table vowel. Miserably, I’m part of this 60% of people who didn’t participate. Actually, I think is very important that everyone vote to be part of democracy of the country. Anyway, I can understand some of people who don’t participated. From what I’ve heard, for example my brother, he didn’t vote because he doesn’t believe in the system. He said that all the politics are part of the same. The political parties don’t matter because all are corrupt. Many people say that the changes must be in different ways and “not provide voting”.

A greatest Chilean

Chile has a lot of important people that is recognized in countries around the world instead in Chile.
One time, I studied a great Chilean author during the career. I was studying the way that we approach the reality and how we know it. I recently know about Humberto Maturana. He is a Chilean biologist and philosopher. Maturana studied in this university (of Chile), he won the national science natural in 1994 and creates a theory of biology cognition. This discipline explains that the organisms have close systems with a predetermined structure (biology). Maturana is known for developing a theory of autopoiesis about the nature of reflexive feedback control in living systems. I find attractive the development of Maturana given that he makes a combination between culture and biology of existence of humans beings. In the middle of a culture dominated by the rationalization, he recovers the emotions that determinate the culture: the love. The living of humans beings are created in the relationships based of love. This dynamic holds the acceptation of others that results of life together and the constitution of language, an essential element of our lives.
One of the books I read is called “The tree of knowledge”. I love that because is the only book I read (for university) that have draws (painted by him) of animals, many schemes and charts that makes the book more interactive.

First Day at University

I’m going to talk about the first day in this University. Why? Before studying at University of Chile, I was in a private university that I don’t like so much. When I graduated from high school I wanted to study psychologist at UBA (University of Buenos Aires), but for different reasons I couldn’t go. So I didn’t prepare PSU. I studied two years and then I changed at University of Chile by special admission. I have to say that it the most change I ever do, even if took a lot of effort. This is the reason why now I’m having subjects of second and thirst year of psychologist. Consequently, in my first day, I was with the students of the first year. I didn’t make social relations immediately because I’m just adapting at a new establishment that are very different. At the first moment I feel strange and I remembered I had a distance attitude. Little by little I started to made friends and just felt more relax. However, I didn’t feel the same in class with the second years of students. In different situations I was uncomfortable, alone and lost because most of them were friends before I met them. Now, the situations change at all. I have a great sensation connected with all things of this University and people here. I think maybe the time ability to me to overcome troubles with the organized of the career also to build relationships that make me feel a complete satisfaction at the university life.

National celebration

I’m not chilean but I celebrate Fiestas Patrias. I think is great because the celebration is in spring so available you to do outdoors activities. The first years I have been living in Chile, I’m surprised for the two free days to celebrate the independence of the country! Well, this year, I’ve the most traditional 18. I really appreciate customs so I’m open-mind to learn a lot! The last Sunday, we traveled with my family to Olmué about two hours. Olmué is a valley near Santiago surrounded of mountains very green with tall trees and pure air. Is amazing, I’ve never went before. Really, I love this place and I would like visit again with friends and my boyfriend. One of the many beautiful things is has, is a huge hill called “Bell’s hill”. One morning we went with my father and brother trekking around national park “The bell”. We walked two hours enjoying the nature of the rainforest. This is the place I want to come back because it has a great camping. If you stay there, you can go trekking to the summit of the Bell’s Hill. The first two days my father cooked barbecue while I was learning to dance Cueca. My father’s girlfriend is Chilean so she taught us because we don’t know how to dance! It was funny; an Argentinean family dancing Cueca. Then, my father danced with his girlfriend in a Fonda! During the day, we visited the town and we went through the handcraft market. Also we enjoyed swimming pool of the residential complex. I spend my free time reading and sharing with my family. I recommend you to visit Olmué!

I meet Antonia when we are adolescent. She was a year older than me and then she repeated in school so we started to know us in the class. In this time, she had blonde and large hair and me too. Nowadays, her hair is short and always she was changing their look. I remember she talked as a Mexican person because she had been living there, at the same time Antonia bothered me because I spoke as an Argentinean. One of the things that surprise me of her personality is the way to be scatterbrain and crazy. So, with her extrovert attitude, we started to be friends. We shared great moments when we were in the school. Later, we met in another places and made panoramas. I remember when I always went to her house to watched goods movies. Antonia loves the cinema, she started studying the carrier in Santiago but then she left. Now, she’s living with her girlfriend in Paris, France since two years. I envy her! Antonia always travel to many parts of the world because she likes to experience another culture and met interesting people. Really, I love travel so I wish to make a trip with her. (And I think Antonia too). I have to say that we have different personalities, but with share listening music, talking about books, travelling, and most of all, laughing. We have the same sense of humor! The last thing I could say, is that we are close friend and we know each other. In this moment, I’m so happy because she arrives to Chile the next week. I miss my friend so much!

FIRST TERM Before the vacations, I have to back to the reality, so the first months of the semester is an adaptation on my life. Every new year, I write 12 wishes that I want to realized, and the most of this wishes is a positive proposition that had relation to the energy I’ll gave to me and to others to the rest of the year. So, I started motivating myself to enjoy every little thing that I’ll experience in my life. I started doing Yoga, twice a week, for the health of my body and at the same time to have moments of meditations necessary for my mind and emotions. The university started differently this year because I have subjects more connected to the career, a mean, the first two years, I studied general topics like Philosophy, Anthropology, Sociology, etc. Therefore, I have learned about the five perspectives of Psychologist; clinical, educational, community, legal and organizational. This time is important to started deciding in which field I’ll going to choose for my specialization. However, month by month I became stressed, tired, some strange. I had an excess of subjects, so I had to organize my time in a perfect way if I want to do anything else. However, I found great moments to recharge energy and never stop learning. One of the activities that gave me a sunrise was too shared with my friends and my family.
