Personal Experience

The last few days I took a giant step and finally moved to a new room in my hostel. I had been sharing a  4-sharing hostel room for three months with another student I’ve just known when moving in there. In the beginning, I quiet enjoy staying with the new roommate I’m with in the room. But as time flies, my roommate starts to get on my nerve.

After few months living with her, she began to act immature and irresponsible. I’m the one that always ends up cleaning the dishes and have to do all the cleaning in the room, while all she did was hanging out with her friends and going out having fun. She always return to the hostel back at late night and I have to wait up for her for opening the door because she always forget to bring her keys out with her!

Everytime I tried to start a conversation with her, she doesn’t like to listen but instead of listening to me she starts an argument with me. That is the reason I have been so stress out for the few months. One thing that make me angry the most is that I have to listen to her techno music every night while sleeping. Until the very next day I’ll have a serious headache. Sometimes, I can’t concentrate on my studies because of her screaming and yelling on the phone with her boyfriend.

My roommate complains about everything in life, she complains on her friends, her personal things, and also she complains about me for nothing! That is the last draw for me when she told me in the face that I had steal all the people’s attention away from her. After the argument, I decided to move to a new room a soon as possible.

Now that I have moved into a new room I feel more relaxed and comfortable, the new roommates are friendly and they are more concern on other people’s privacy. Looking back, I definitely think that I have made a right decision. I feel really happy and good about moving to a new room. But sometimes I still feel a little lonely because we are still getting along with each other. But for the most part, I finally feel free.

Marley & Me Movie Review

Last week I watched such a loving and touching movie of a happy-go-lucky Golden Retriever puppy in the movie Marley & Me. I enjoyed watching the movie because I adore dogs and I love touching stories.

The part of the puppy is played by a Golden Retriever named Marley and was adopted by John( Owen Wilson ) and Jenny( Jennifer Aniston ). There’s a lot of funny, a lot of goofy by the film,s four-legged star, and definitely will bring everyone a good laugh. But Marley & Me also packs an emotional wallop. The story is written by John Grogan from his experiences with his dog Marley. The commercials and trailer give no indication of just how hard Marley & Me is going to hit animal lovers of all ages. It really gave me a surprise.

Marley & Me may not work for people who does not succumbed to the charms of dogs, but for anyone who had ever have a canine companion this movie is for you. Marley & Me is sweet, touching, and has a lot of heart. Not only from the adorable puppy but also a great performance from Owen and Jennifer as the co-star of Marley & Me, giving a more realistic look at a married life. 

Marley & Me grabs you from the opening moments and never let’s go. Marley & Me is a real tear-jerker. I believe that you would have a heart of stone not to fall in love with the beautiful story.

My Best Friend

My best friend Sophia and I have many similarities and also differences in many ways, but the most important thing that we have in common is our personality. We love shopping and hanging out together. Whenever we have the mood for shopping, both of us always can count on each other for hanging out together. We always stick to each other and look out for each other. Our friendship shows that a real great friend is the person who won’t leave you behind and stays faithful.

The differences between me and Sophia are significant due to our educational background. Sophia is a student in hospitality management and I’m now enrolled in the English studies, but that doesn’t stop us from having close friendship with each other. Sophia always takes care of me. Sometimes, she would help me in my homework. Sophia and me have different point of view of our future and she’s also a social person, she makes friends easily. Sophia is more an outgoing person, so that she can make close friends with guys. I’m the one that always have the hard time talking or starting a conversation with guys.

What really make us bond is Sophia and I both likes having fun and enjoy everyday life. What we enjoy most together is talking about stupid jokes when we got nothing to do. And she is the first person that I am never afraid to open up when asking for advice or when I’m feeling down, she’s a great listener and is always there when I need a shoulder to cry on. We both share our secrets with each other. And the most interesting thing that we have in common is, both of us is good in cooking!

 

Although we are quite different in many ways and similar in many ways too, Sophia and i have become real close friends since I moved here, and both of us have a harmonious friendship. Everytime we get together, we always have a so much funny and happy things to talk about and always have a blast. Both of us support each other on whatever we do, at the end of the day we still stick together untill the end. A good friend is hard to come by, harder to leave, and impossible to do without. So I am truly lucky to have a friend like Sophia.

The Legend of The Chupacabra

The Chupacabras has been name by Chupa ‘suck’ and Cabra ‘goat’, literally “goat suckers” is a legendary creature rumored to be found living in many parts of America. It is associated more recently with sightings of an allegedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico, Mexico and the United States, where the first sightings has been reported.  Especially in the latter’s which is the Latin American communities. The first report made was in March, 1995, it belongs in the group called “Cryptid” meaning that those existence is moreover often regarded as highly unlikely.

A drawing and description of Chupacabra

After the first eyewitness claimed encountered with the creature. Soon after it had been many reports as far north as Maine, and as far south as Chile. It is supposedly a likely heavy creature, a size of a small bear with a row of spines reaching from the neck until the end of the tail.

Biologist and wildlife management are viewing that the chupacabra is known as contemporary legend. In July 2010, an animal was killed and reported to be a chupacabra, but was found that it was a coyote with severe parasite infection. Three months later, the University of Michigan scientist  theorised that coyote infested with parasites were likely the basis of the chupacabra legend.

The first reported attacks occurred in March 1995 in Puerto Rico. In this attack, eight sheep were discovered dead, each with three puncture wounds in the chest area and completely drained of blood. A few months later, in August, an eyewitness, Madelyne Tolentino, reported seeing the creature in the Puerto Rican town of Canovanas, when almost 150 farm animals and pets were reportedly killed. In 1975, similar killings in the small town of Moca, were named El Vampiro de Moca as “The Vampire of Moca”.

The most common description of chupacabras is a reptile-like being, appearing to have leathery or scaly greenish-gray skin and sharp spines or quills running down its back. This form stands approximately 3 to 4 feet high, and stands and hops in a similar fashion to a kangaroo. In at least one sighting, the creature was reported to hop 20 feet. This has been told to have a dog or panther-like nose and face, a forked-tongue, and large fangs. It is said to hiss and screech when alarmed, as well as leave behind a sulfuric stench.When it screeches, some reports assert that the chupacabras eyes glow an unusual red that lets the witnesses nausea.

Another description of chupacabras, although not as common, describes a strange breed of wild dog. This form is mostly hairless and has a pronounced spinal ridge, unusually pronounced eye sockets, fangs, and claws. It is claimed that this breed might be an example of a dog-like reptile. Unlike conventional predators, the chupacabras is said to drain all of the animal’s blood and sometimes organs, usually through three holes in the shape of an upside-down triangle or through one or two holes.

The popularity in swimming with dolphins are increasing greatly over the years, due to satisfaction and learning of human beings experience while swimming with dolphins. It has been told that this activity can help treat depression in human.

Some of the dolphins are kept in Dolphinarium.

Famous Inventors

The famous inventor that I have chosen is, John Logie Baird. He is the first  creator or inventor of  people’s entertainment until today. He had discovered and invented television. John Logie Baird (August 13, 1888-June 14, 1946) was a Scottish engineer, who is best well-known as the inventor of the first working television system. Baird was born in Helensburgh,  Argyll, Scotland. Baird was educated at Larchfield school but now it is known as Lomom school in Helensburgh, and also carries on his studies at Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College, now is named the University of Strathclyde. He also furthered his studies in the University of Glasgow. Unfortunately, during his degree course. It was interrupted by World War One, and he didn’t graduate.

John Logie Baird

The Foremost pioneer, producing television images.

In his first television attempts, Baird experimented with Nipkow disc and demonstrated that a semi mechanical analogue television system was possible for transmitting static image of a ventriloquist’s dummy in London in Februay 1924. This early system highly fragile image that was difficult to view and transmitted only in shades of brown. On October 30, 1925 it became famous and was the first moving image transmitting a grainy image of a ventriloquist dummy’s head. Baird soon demonstrate transmitting an image of a boy who he had paid for taking part of the experiments to a crowd of onlookers. Although the experiments had been experimenting by others including Baird, Paul Gottleib Nipkow and Boris Rosing. But Baird was the first person who ever succeeded in this experiment. He was generally credited for the first person to produce recognizable television image, and continues advancing other experiments in the field.

Soon, in East sussex, Hasting, UK. Claims to be “Birthplace of Television” as it was there he lives for health reasons while spending his time discovering more experiments. From December 1944 until his death in 1946, Baird had been living in Station Road, Bexhill On Sea. Had been currently named “Baird Court”. Rother District Council gave permission to the property to be demolished for the used of construction sites in 2006.

In 1925, London. Baird demonstrated the first moving silhouette images in the Selfridges department store. The  first true television system was demonstrated in the Royal Institution in January 26, 1926 in the Soho district of London. On October 30, 1925, Baird had been successful in transmitting his first true television picture in the laboratory. But he was mocked by public after introducing his invention.

In 1927, Baird transmitted a long-distance television signal over 438 miles of telephone line between London and Glasgow. He then set up the Baird Television Development Company Ltd, which in 1928 made the first transatlantic television transmission from London to Hartsdale, New York and also made the first television programme for the BBC. He televised the first live transmission of the Epsom Derby in 1931.

Though Baird is often given credit for ‘inventing’ television, neither himself had ever claimed this. As his early experiments were all with mechanical systems. High definition electronic television as we know it was not invented by any one person, but through the efforts of many. Baird continues developing numerous demonstration in his particular talent.

But in 1946, Baird died in Bexhill On Sea, Sussex, England. After suffering a stroke in February of that year. Due to his success, there is a working model of John Logie Baird, televisor. In London Science Museum. In  honor for the  inventor.
