Fast and Furious
Hi English lovers,
What have you been up to? It’s me again, Adriana, typing from Brazil. While my family was giving all attention to the eye-catching match Flamengo was playing against Grêmio, I was free to torture you with my writings. :-)
I’m not sure if I should be writing here because sometimes I have ants in my pants to say what I think. Living in a poor state like Espírito Santo you can understand my disappointment at the Brazilian politicians.
I don’t know from where this urgency in understand politics come from but recently I’ve been thoughtful. I even decided to take part of a political party just for curiosity. The first meeting was comical for me . I felt like a fish out of the water listening to all those politicians talking …bla-bla-bla…only empty words.
To be honest, it’s scary to see so many changes here! I feel like an ant with all those machines and constructions everywhere. We only hear the word petroleum all the time. Perhaps I should be happy but I have a feeling that my city won’t be that quiet anymore. That could be a great opportunity for development of my state always neglected in our history but I guess the only thing we will get is the negative impact in our lives and environment. It was already said that we will have to share the profit with all Brazilian states, including the rich ones. Almost nothing for us.
Poor “Capixabas” ( the way we are called here), how can we be optimistic about improving people lives after the flood we had last month? When it happens to a rich state the media will make a buzz and the government will quickly send help but not in poor states around Brazil. Many people lose their houses without any support.
Sorry for the bitterness of my blog. You don’t deserve it. Maybe it has to do with the film I’ve watched: 2012.
Talking of climate changes my son couldn’t play yesterday. The heavy rain didn’t allow him play at the stadium. It would be an important match against Desportiva. By the way I wrote something wrong in my last blog. The fact of the matter is that he plays at the Sport Club Tupy , this is the correct name of his team.
He is addicted to football. He practises everyday and when it’s raining, he plays videogame. Which game? Football of course. But it doesn’t worry me. He passed at school with excellent grades so that they offered 50 % of discount in the payment for the next year because I was considering a shift to another school. I feel good…so good :-)
I have to say goodbye, the match has finished, Flamengo is the champion and the life goes on. I promise the next blog will be completely free of politics.
