Dear Mary Jones,

Why are you worried about other people`s life? Just because your friends have boyfriends it doesn`t mean you have to start looking for someone desperately. You are 14 years old and in my opinion it`s too soon to think seriously about it. First, enjoy your age by choosing good friends, nice people and maybe you`ll meet someone that is compatible with you. Try to change something about your looks because you said you are shy and guys don`t know you exist. There must be some subjects you like to talk about such as music, cinema or sports, mostly sports, guys love it!
There is no reason to be desperate, you are too young and you are not mature enough to face loneliness. Don`t rush! Hearn to love yourself and to feel good with yourself, then you will be ready to feel good with others.
I hope my advice will help you to progress in this matter.

Hope to hear goods from you soon

Best wishes,

Dr. Hope

Scary Story

When I was 9 years old, I move to a new house. It was a two-storey house, small and not very pretty, but older. After a couple months I knew everybody in the neighborhood especially the children’s. Was when one of the neighboring asked me:
“Who is lay awake all night in your house?”, “Nobody!?” I replay, “So why I listening the door beating all night?”
I told the case to my mom but she doesn’t give importance. I also don’t care much for it, my neighbors always said: “How you have courage to live in that house?”.
Later we contracts one employer and she was very afraid, she said “When I’m down I hear noises of people up there, and when I'm up, I hear noise down.”. “It must be the dog.” we said , “ No, the dog stay all the time beside me.”. But nobody care.
One day i was sleeping (with my mom and my brother) when someone hit the door. It isn’t a common beat, was very strong. My mom goes to the door and asked “Who is?”, but nobody answer. Two more times she asked and nobody answered. So my moms took the phone and call to the employer and ask if was her that knock the door. The answer was no. After joining courage the two of us were to outside see what’s going on. The whole house was in the most perfect silence. It was when my mom told me that the former owner of the house had been murdered, apparently by his partner. Since then mother, brother and aunt had gone to live there, but everyone left with afraid. Until my mother bought the house, but all the people who rented it also came out saying that they saw things. We live in this house for three years and since then I’ve never had such experiences. Particularly, I am very skeptical about these things. Neighbors, however, until today are afraid of the house.

European Day of Languages

Languages are considered to be the source of life and power
Linguistic diversity is what defines one of the others
And freedom?
You have yours I have mine the freedom no one can take us.

Independently of our union
Nothing changes
Everyone has their culture
Everyone has their language

26th September is the must important day
The day we celebrate our unity through language
So in this special day I remember the others
And believe that unity is owe strength.

Importance of learning another languages:

Language is important to communicate and understand people.

Learning anoher languages opens new opportunities.

Personal, professional, social and economic considerations all point to the advantages of learning foreign languages.

Most people learning two or more languages.

English is the native language in United Kingdom, is a second language or foreign languages in always countries.

In Portugal people use the English for second language because English is the most widespread language in the world and English is the major languages of new and information.

So, learning another languages because it's importante for your future and, for example, make new friends from other countries.

Dear John:

I think you should show your face.

If she really likes you, it will not matter if you are ugly or not.

But if she really stops talking with you this means that she is cruel and does not deserve your love.

And I’m sure that what you certainly do not want to like a person who does not like you

It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor, if you are well or badly dressed what is important is what you feel inside in your heart.

Adolescence (Advice)

I think you shouldn't pay attention to what others say because some girls don't care much about the physical aspect but rather about the personality.
If you are a guy who is physically beautiful and if you have good friends and don't get yourself into confusions I think anyone will be interested in you. However, you have to be patient and shouldn't get anxious because the girls can feel when you are nervous because you are inexperienced with relationships.
Just be careful! And don't forget: Looks are important but they aren't all!

Adolescence II...

Adolescent psychology is associated with notable changes in mood sometimes known as mood swings. Cognitive, emotional and attitudinal changes which are characteristic of adolescence, often take place during this period, and this can be a cause of conflict on one hand and positive personality development on the other.
Because the adolescents are experiencing various strong cognitive and physical changes, for the first time in their lives they may start to view their friends, their
peer group, as more important and influential than their parents/guardians. Because of peer pressure, they may sometimes indulge in activities not deemed socially acceptable, although this may be more of a social phenomenon than a psychological one.

The home is an important aspect of adolescent psychology: home environment and family have a substantial impact on the developing minds of teenagers, and these developments may reach a climax during adolescence. For example, abusive parents may lead a child to "poke fun" at other classmates when he/she is seven years old or so, but during adolescence it may become progressively worse. If the concepts and theory behind right or wrong were not established early on in a child's life, the lack of this knowledge may impair a teenager's ability to make beneficial decisions as well as allowing his/her impulses to control his/her decisions.
In the search for a unique social

identity for themselves, adolescents are frequently confused about what is 'right' and what is 'wrong.'

Adolescents may be subject to peer pressure within their adolescent time span, consisting of the need to have sex, consume alcoholic beverages, use drugs, defy their parental figures, or commit any activity in which the person who is subjected to may not deem appropriate, among other things. Peer pressure is a common experience between adolescents and may result briefly or on a larger scale.

It should also be noted that adolescence is the stage of a psychological breakthrough in a person's life when the cognitive development is rapid and the thoughts, ideas and concepts developed at this period of life greatly influence one's future life, playing a major role in character and personality formation.
Struggles with adolescent identity and depression usually set in when an adolescent experiences a loss. The most important loss in their lives is the changing relationship between the adolescent and their parents. Adolescents may also experience strife in their relationships with friends.
This may be due to the activities their friends take part in, such as smoking, which causes adolescents to feel as though participating in such activities themselves is likely essential to maintaining these friendships. Teen depression can be extremely intense at times because of physical and hormonal changes but emotional instability is part of adolescence. Their changing mind, body and relationships often present themselves as stressful and that change, they assume, is something to be feared.


Adolescence (Latin adolescere, to grow) is a transitional stage of physical and mental human development that occurs between childhood and adulthood. This transition involves biological, social, and psychological changes, though the biological or physiological ones are the easiest to measure objectively. Historically, puberty has been heavily associated with teenagers and the onset of adolescent development. In recent years, however, the start of puberty has had somewhat of an increase in preadolescence (particularly females), and adolescence has had an occasional extension beyond the teenage years (typically males). This has made adolescence less simple to discern.
The teenage years are from ages 13 to 19. However, the end of adolescence and the beginning of adulthood varies by country and by function, and furthermore even within a single nation-state or culture there can be different ages at which an individual is considered to be (chronologically and legally) mature enough to be entrusted by society with certain tasks. Such milestones include, but are not limited to, driving a vehicle, having legal sexual relations, serving in the armed forces or on a jury, purchasing and drinking alcohol, voting, entering into contracts, completing certain levels of education, and marrying.
Adolescence is usually accompanied by an increased independence allowed by the parents or legal guardians and less supervision, contrary to the preadolescence stage.

The Mirror

Once upon a time, a pretty and intelligent girl named Nancy Fieldman, of an humble origin, who worked in a mansion, in England, with her mother, by the year 1870.
The owner of the mansion where Nancy and her mother worked was a man with serious personality problems, an unscrupulous psychopath. This man was very rude to them and treated them badly leaving them only the remains of its frequent services and a cold room where both fit in during the night, in that mansion with numerous hot rooms that were locked for use only for guests.
Due to the inhumane treatment and also a profound anemia, Nancy's mother died, leaving her daughter her few possessions, a small doll and a mirror framed in marble left by his father with the following words at the bottom of the mirror: «I will be a reflection of your soul wherever I am».
Nancy was a shy girl, but she was always smiling, however, with the death of her mother, Nancy went into a deep depression and wanted to leave the mansion.
The owner of the mansion, knowing her intentions, locked Nancy in a basement, where she could not go out, and what was worse, the girl was raped every night in that place.
One day, tired of suffering and so much pain, Nancy tried to respond to the aggression that was submitted, giving a blow with her doll in the face of man. The owner of the mansion, very angry with the girl, slapped her and smothered with her own doll.
During this discussion, the girl dropped the mirror and still no air said her last words: "I will be the reflection of your soul wherever I am" ...
Weeks later the man was found with her hair completely gray, dead without explanation with a piece of mirror in his hands.
Until today, the death of this man has been a mystery, many people say that the persons who picked up this piece of mirror have died or become mad, many say they see a reflection of little Nancy.
