A nightmare journey I remember was three years ago when I was going to the airport with my friend.We were going to Malloroca on holiday and we had to be at Dresden airport two hours before the flight.

We leaved-left home with plenty of time when we got to the motorway there was a huge traffic jam!The traffic wasn’t moving at all.We didn’t knew-know what to do.It was too late to go another way,so we just sat in the car getting more and more stressed. After ten minutes the traffic started moving slowly. We decided to leave the motorway and try to found-find another way to the airport, but I wasn’t sure of the way and we hot completely lost. We was-were sure we were going to miss flight. We finally arrived at the airport just thirty minutes before the plane was going to leave. The woman at the check-in desk said we couldn’t to check in-we couldn’t check-in our luggage because it was too late so we had to run with all our cases to the departure gate.In the end my friend felt over-feel over and hurt her leg,we managed to get to the gate in time and although we caught our flight.

Can money buy happiness?

I’m sure that you have already listened this question,and his answer is very disputable.
You know for someone happiness is something that you can buy,like car or ticket to Italy. But for someone happiness is healthiness or family,and you can’t buy it.There are so many examples for this question,but I think that the most understandable and clear example is love and house.

•Let’s imagine someone who has no home,and he lives outside.Happiness for that human of course will be comfortable and heated home.And that home you can’t buy with emotions,or with kindness, you just need money. But when you are rich ,and you can buy house at this moment ,it can’t be happiness for you.

•And let’s imagine someone who is rich ,and happiness for him is love.I think if human is rich ,other people will love him because of his money. It would be hard for that human to find real love,because there are a lot of people who love money,and it is tempting them.But if you are normal human,without super abilities ,there are a lot of chances that you can find true love,because that human will love you as you is ,without money or with him.

So yes,money can buy happiness ,if it’s something material,but if it’s emotional money is unnecessary here.

The Best Job in the World

Have you ever heard of the Great Barrier Reef? It is the world’s largest coral reef system along the eastern coast of Australia. In February 2009 an extraordinary position was advertised by the Australian Tourism Office. The advertisement ran that the Great Barrier Reef needed a caretaker for half a year. It was for a special person who would look after the Reef.

The job offered a large salary, free accommodation in a luxury villa, and transportation there and around the islands. All expenses would be paid: the winner wouldn’t need to spend any extra money on anything.

The job’s duties were pretty simple. You could only dream of such requirements. First, the person had to speak English and swim well. Second, on the island his responsibility included writing a weekly Internet blog. That’s right, weekly, not even daily! The job description also required the successful applicant to explore the islands of the Great Barrier Reef, swim, make friends with the locals and generally enjoy the tropical climate and lifestyle. A real dream!

Within the first 2 days of the contest, the tourism office received more than seven thousand online applications. All told, 34,000 people of all different nationalities applied. Each made and presented a 60-second video resume. They had to be creative and they were. In the end 16 people were chosen, who flew to Australia for the final selection. The candidates were interviewed and the winner was Ben Southall from the UK.

Ben greatly enjoyed the dream job he had got. He realised that people knew very little about planet earth and its treasures. Living in big cities, they forgot how important the flora and fauna of this world were. Every time Ben went outdoors, he could discover something new. “Every time I dived or went underwater, I forgot about all the troubles above water and concentrated on living in the moment. It was a good way to clean the mind and build respect for the natural world,” Ben said.

Ben’s life on the island was not just fun. It was very busy, busier than most people imagined, and certainly busier than Ben himself had imagined. He worked seven days a week and up to 19 hours a day. The Best Job included travelling to over 60 islands of the Reef almost every day. It was not just looking after the Reef, Ben had a lot of meetings, press conferences and interviews. He was getting a lot of attention all the time and he couldn’t get away from it. That was probably the hardest part of the job.

Moreover, any adventure has a certain degree of risk. Swimming and diving on the Great Barrier Reef was not different. Ben had to deal with whales, sharksand other huge sea creatures. Surprisingly, the most dangerous thing was a small jellyfish about the size of a little finger. It’s considered to be extremely poisonous and Ben was stung by it. He had to spend a couple of days in hospital but luckily recovered after a course of antibiotics.

Ben often says that the project has taught him a few valuable lessons. Working with the Internet is one of those jobs you can do 24 hours a day. Ben realised it was hard to separate life and work, but this he had to do. He also said: “I’ve learned that we get one life on earth so we have to use it. There’ll always be other countries to visit, other people to meet and other adventures to meet. This is what I wish to do. I’m planning to go to Asia in a few years time”.

Writing letter about my bestfriend

Hi Alexa!It’s me Astghik.
Yes I got your message ,and of course I will tell you about my bestie.
She is 14 years old girl ,and one of the kindest and prettiest human I have ever met.I think that she is supergirl ,because she can do everything,and if she can’t do something she will never surrender.Can you imagine a girl who knows five languages,can dance,sing ,she is very good at politics-and psychology,also she teaches English.She is very diligent ,too much. She is very positive and sociable person ,she’s extrovert.I know that she likes watching films,watching tik-tok.And I don’t want to forget to tell you about her angel voice ,and her beautiful dancing ability.Her voice, how human can sing so beautifully,it’s incredible, she is a very good dancer too,she has been shot in many musical clips.Oh ,I don’t want to forget to say that she’s a very good figure skater ,she represented Armenia in France,and she took the third place. So at first sight ,you can say that she is a normal girl with brown eyes and hair,but no ,she has super abilities,sometimes I think that she isn’t from our planet .
But like every human our alien has negative things,sometimes she can be moody,or can be too emotional.But she is she and I love her as she is.
Hope you like her Alexa,bye bye…
