My blogging experience

This is the last post. So, I must tell you about my blogging experience.
Sincelery, this kind of activity was so boring for me, because I felt obliged to write in each class and do it publicly, and something that i really hate it's that. Also, I think that the experience can be better if the topics are related to things that motivates us or generate more discussion and differents points of view, I don't know...maybe notices or topics of social importance. In my particular case, I felt silly in many times writing topics as "My favorite web site", "My favorite subject" or "My favorite I don't know". Always the topics were related with this kind of things and although I learnt new vocabulary and practiced my english, I think that it could be better.
But, I don’t stay here for make a hard critic about this evaluation. It’s just that I’m making a constructive critic for the teacher is she read this. I guess that we could waste the time with other games, dynamics, other exercises. Well, I don’t know exactly what, but I remember my class in the school and was so entertaining, we used to listen songs and complete it, but songs that we choose or read stories, make crosswords, make interviews in the streets and another games. Well, I think that are so many ways to teach English and it’s really subjective, because if for me this activity wasn’t the best, maybe for my classmates was great.
Finally, I’d like to say that the class in general was so useful for practice our English and communicate and share different opinions. The topics for the conversations were interesting and makes me laugh in many times. I can share something with my new classmates and it was nice.

My future

Well, today i’m going to tell you about what i hope of my future.
I think that in 5 years from now i’ll be working in my own coffee shop. I really would like to work in this Project that i have with my best friend, Macarena. She is studying art and it’s really interested in this Project, too. We pretend make a different and innovator coffee with our recipes and with and cool and nice enviroment and a lot of other things, but our ideas for the moment are secrets.
Profesionally, I hope to do a postgraduate course related with aesthetic of the cinema because i want to know more about it. I would like to do it in this University for one day write a book with this topic.
Personally, I would like to be a mom. Also, I think that I’ll live with my boyfriend in a great flat in front of a park in the center of Santiago. But I don’t think so much in the future because i have enough with the present and i don’t want to think a life in 5 years from now because it’s depends that what happened in all this time and all that i think can change.

my favorite subject

In this post I'm going to write about Rupture and Ideology I, that is my favorite subject this term because we can see a lot of pictures and other images related to avant-gardes. It's very interesting because we can learn theory seeing pictures all the class, and the teacher uses it for tell us about the bases that every movement takes as their ideology and how their main characters express it throught their pictures, using elements like colors, composition, ways to representation, lines, etc, etc.

I think that this subject it's great to consider the job and the process of creation of the picture and the result of all that according to the time and the context. Also, the teacher, María Elena Muñoz,  it's a very energic person and always she's talking about curious stories and other funny tips about the life of some artists.

I have learnt a lot this semester about this topic, for example, recognize and difference between artistic movements like romanticism, realism, impressionism, expressionism, Bauhaus…

Well, I'm going to tell you about Michel Foucault. He is a french philosopher, sociologist and historian, but he is related to my career because he wrote some books about theory of art. His work is really interesting for me because he takes different topics and analyzes it, but with other look and take examples about arts. It's difficult for me explain exactly how he writes, i think that maybe you can read something about this guy, because the way that he use for write is single and is really gripping. Since i read "The words and the things" i really loved his job. In some of his texts, he describe the picture and explain the composition with an analytical eye that propose a new way of reading the picture and many are paradigms in the history of art, but he wrote about other topics too, as science, sexuality and contingency things.

I think that the reasons for why he likes me are clear, i didn't read all his books, but it's something that i really wanna do.
