Samuel Pepys

From this story "The Diary of Samuel Pepys" i could understand and learn about the life of Samuel Pepys. In this reading they were 4 topics that standed out in the life of Samuel, God , health, family and household. They were not the only topics mentioned by Pepys but certainly the most important to him. He was one of the most remarkable english men of all time, and in he's diary he wrote every detail. I can say personally that my opinion varies in the way that, for me Samuel, was not so bad of a person and for me i can say that i see the trust in him, in the way of his commitment to the king and offered his trust and always supporting him also, normally in the diary, we can see that he committed a múltiple of infidelities, but he always kept a clean heart for his wife, he was always thinking of her and was truly in love with her. I can say he was also a greatful man in the way that he was always content and very happy with the meals and time his wife spend on him, also …

My Legend

The Lady in Wine

Its been said that long time ago there was a lady in Tuscany, Italy that lived far from society in an old wooden house alone, with her own crops of grapes. As a good italian she loved wine, it was her passion. She had fields full of grapes so she could create the best wines and keep them all to herself . She took care of her fields as much as she could, she spended almost all her time in them, apart from eating and sleeping the fields of grapes were her life. Checking the leafs, the roots and the fruit the lady spends all her day outside.

Colombia

Colombia is the perfect place to live. The country is the second most bio-diverse in the world. Located in the north of South America, it has coastline on both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. It is home to 20% of all species on earth. Colombians will welcome you into their communities with music, dancing, interesting local food, and of course festivals. Nearly every city and town has a festival to celebrate some aspect of Colombian life. Life in Colombia varies from laidback, relaxing beach living in the coastal town of Taganga, to the culture-rich capital city of Bogotá, filled with theaters, churches, and the Gold Museum, which houses the world’s largest collection of Pre-Columbian gold artifacts. Barranquilla, is one of the best cities in Colombia.

My Life

My name is Simona Bellingrodt and this, is my life. I was born in Barranquilla/Colombia 17 years ago. I have two hard working parents named Monica and Christian and a brother named Andreas. I studied most of my life in a School called Marymount but throughout time things changed and now i am finishing my last year of high school at the Lyndon B Johnson School. I can say i am very happy with my life, as a child i had all i needed, thanks to my parents, i grew up learning and seeing new things everyday. I think my experience of living in Colombia as a kid with an european family was a little different for me than a normal Colombian child, but thanks to that, i became a person able to acknowledge the both ways in my own way. This combination of cultures opened many things for me, like my interest in languages, traveling and curiosity. I can say i am very proud of my life and in the future i could continue living like the way i grew up with, simple and in peace.
