Reassessing

Another year approaches its end. Sharing happiness, I'm sure we are able to overcome all shortcomings. It's time to say good-bye to the third year, wishing them responsibility and good luck. For some it's time to take a rest, to keep on doing the good work. The purpose of this blog is to hear from you, to share thoughts, music, pictures... life. As we grow up together in this cybernetic world, I hope to use this frantic technology not to put us apart, but rather to connect us more and more.

Charlie Chaplin- Great Dictator`s last speech.
"I'm sorry but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible; Jew, Gentile, black men, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each others' happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men's souls; has barricaded the world with hate; has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge as made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in man; cries out for universal brotherhood; for the unity of us all.

Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say "Do not despair." The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish.

Soldiers! Don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you and enslave you; who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder! Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men---machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have a love of humanity in your hearts! You don't hate! Only the unloved hate; the unloved and the unnatural.

Soldiers! Don't fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it’s written “the kingdom of God is within man”, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy, let us use that power.

Let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfill their promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfill that promise! Let us fight to free the world! To do away with national barriers! To do away with greed, with hate and intolerance! Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness.

Leandro disse...

Hey...
This year was totally amazing; it's so sad that is ending. I hope that everyone keep work so well, becasue i wanna see everybody together in 2009.

About my vacations, I don't know what i will do. Probably I will travel, go out with friends and watch concerts.

2009 will be a hard year: firstly exames to enter in college and after last year together.... I can't imagine this. I'd rather think that it's distant.

Well... I wish good luck to the third year and to my classmates in this final part of the year.
Bye... hugs!!!

Hello André,
When you said that we’d have to write a text about any subject, I got excited. Because writing is something that I really like to do and, probably, one of the best things that I do.
The lack of a concrete subject makes the whole process a little bit harder… Actually, a few minutes on a bus, while I look the crowd crossing streets every day, makes me realize that one of my biggest fears – after the exams to enter in college… Just kidding! – is the fear of be one in a million.
I don’t know if this is ordinary between people at my age or whether it is alive inside all the human beings, but the fact is that it really gets me worried. I neither want to be a person, that nobody remembers; nor the student whose teachers take a long time to recall the name or just another lost face between any others.
Well, now you are probably thinking that I should work for it, make things to be remembered, but the truth is that I’m not the kind of girl that speaks loud or says funny things all the time, I'm not the student that gets the best grades and read out loud to the class either or the one who is full of surprises and my hair doesn’t gleam when it catches the light. However, I think that somewhere, somebody can remember me as that girl who really likes words and, maybe, makes good use of them.
It was supposed to be just a text and I exposed myself more than I intended, but I don’t think that it is a problem.
Anyway, the end of the year is always a pretty odd time, suddenly everybody get so emotional and so on, but it is kind of funny – except the exams’ period! Physics sucks, just to mention.
I know that the next year will be pretty hard, but rewardable. Probably, the most important so far, and it doesn’t make things easier, not at all.
Now all that’s left for me is to wish you happy holiday and great vacation, for all of us.

x.o.x.o,
Marina Rocha.

Bia Baker disse...

Hey André,

I really don't have a clue about what to say.

I could just come here and talk about some world problem like the war in Iraq and how sad it is; or the goddamn heat of this city and how much I want to be somewhere like Germany right now; even about the big flood in front of my house yesterday. But none of these things attract enough attention for me to write about.

I've already listened more than 10 songs and I still don't know what to say. My mind almost becomes a total blank when my room echos with rhythm and someone's voice. I'm not really caring about what is being said on the news now, probably just another crime and so on. I think my mind ignores every kind of problems when a song is played near me. And right now I'm really taking advantage of this "escape" to just forget about the tests that will start tomorrow.

We all have our ups and downs and we also look for different ways to pass well through rough moments. My solution is the music: metal to my days of hostility; rock when I need shake my body and sing together; electronic to those days that all I want is not to think and to forget everything; and, finally, the jazz of Michael Bublé when I just want to stop each thing and start thinking about what is making me sad.

In the past few years music has became one of the most important things in my life. This is what makes my days more happier and helps me when I'm not okay. It's delightful when I listen to a band singing exactly what I'm feeling. And there's nothing better than go to a concert to relax.

Music is definitely my getaway of problems, mine or not.

Well, I think I might have found my subject accidentally. Why do all of my thoughts get back to music huh?


I hope I'll see you next year, André.
Thanks for being a great teacher.

My teacher André,
My vacation will be cool. After an year full of tests and exams, all of us diserve a little bit of rest.
That's why, on December 15th I'm going to Madonna's concert at Maracanã Stadium. I have no doubts that it will be awesome!
At New Year's celebration, My Family and I are going to travel to Iguaba. Then, I'm going to buy a ticket for Elton John's concert, because I love to listen to his songs.
I intend to start studying some subjects, because in 2009 is going to be a year of exams for many universities.
But, right now, I don't want to think about this. I only want to enjoy my vacation.

Hi André!

I’m here in front of the computer thinking about something intrusting to write about me, but nothing really intrusting crossed my mind. Now I realize how difficult it is to talk about yourself, while we talk about anybody else with extremely ease.

A lot of people got used to judge the others for what they appear to be, without worrying to know what was inside the “cover”. I admit that I’ve been like this one day, but as time goes by, I get mature and realize that the exterior is just a disguise of what can really be inside.

So, I’m nobody to judge the others while I’m not able to judge myself, to admit my own mistakes.

This year of 2008 was an year full of discoveries. I discovered, for example, that I have the power of breaking “formed opinions” and form thousands of new ones, more constructives. It’s like the old saying: “Living and learning”.

Ops, my mother is already telling me to turn off the computer and go to bed. I need to wake up early tomorrow; I’m going to take a book’s shower.

On next vacation, I'm going to spend Christmas' and the New Year's day with my mother, because I don't live with her. She's divorced of her husband, who is my father. They divorced each other around two years ago.
Sometimes I can travel to Petropolis to meet and talk with my mom. She can't imagine how much I miss her. The fact of being away from her, is bad. I know that she suffers because of me.
At last, this Christmas won't be remember by gifts. It will be remembered by the presence of my mother who is my protector.

P.S: Teacher, if you can, please. look my blogger: sarvalapos.blogspot.com

Hello Andre.

This year was very productive to me. I learned new words, expressions and legacies of life.

In my vacations, I intend study a lot and, because I am a human too, I intend relax.
Besides this, I hope that my classmates pass to their respective colleges and they have success in their future jobs.

Bye Andre. Merry Christmas and happy new year.

Hello André!

This year of 2008 was and it’s being a very important year.
The rythm in school has changed and the doubt of what to apply in the university appears in every moment.
I feel very confused, because I know that next year I'll have to choose what I really want for my future.And we have to agree that this is a very tough decision.
In my vacations, I wanna enjoy the most, go out with my friends, go to the beach, movies, have a lot of fun, because next year I'll dedicate myself a lot to study.
I hope next year I'm sure of what profession I'll follow. I hope that the good moments I spent with the class stay kept forever in my heart.
Kisses,

Gabriella Morgado.

viviane disse...

Hello André,
Another year is over;it's time to think about what we have done, the right and the wrong things and think about the future. Me and my friends are getting older and time is passing quickly; soon we are going to make "vestibular" that will decide our professional future. It's a time to be anxious and the suport of the family, friends and teachers is essential. Teachers are our knowledge guides.
I wish you a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.

Erika disse...

I was thinking about what to write to you and I suddenly remembered all the things that I did this year. I realized that this year was the best one on my life. In the begin I thought the opposite, because my best friend went to another school and I was afraid of what is going to happen with me at this new level at school.
I really like the outdoors, I hate to stay at home all the time. This year my family bought a house at Guapimirim, it is near Teresópolis. There I can walk, jump at the river and relax with my friends. It is a nice place to spend the weekend.
I studied all my life at the same school, Maria Raythe. I always wanted to be the leader of a team at school .This year I realized this dream, I was one of the leaders of the green team. And the best part is that it was the champion color. I learned a lot with it.
I born fifteen years ago , and this year is special because of this. To celebrate it I traveled to Fernando de Noronha, it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The color of the sea is amazing. I dived and I saw a lot of different species of fishes, turtles, dolphins, small sharks…
This year happened a lot of good things that I never thought that could happen with me.
Now I am really exited about what I am going to do on this vacation. I hope that I can rest, and travel.
That is all.

Hi Andrew,

This year many good things happened, as I have hoped for years, could finally begin to prepare me for the achievement of a dream, because this year could follow in the Escola de Música Villa - Lobos, which opened the doors to the music in my life.

This year I could revise a relative who did not see for months and that felt much missing, a very important person in my life.

I spent the whole year studying to prepare me for college entrance, do not wait to get the holidays to feel more free of those responsibilities. I believe that these holiday travel to Cachoeiro de Itapemirim, which can revise all my family and finish with the miss of my cousins.

I learned a lot from people and my friends of the school, I am studying it since the fourth grade, I intend to take much these days of rest, resting not only as helping some of those friends.

Aninha disse...

Hi André,

There are so many subjects to write now, but I chose to talk about what I hope for my future.
At the moment, what I desire the most is to get into college and do what I really love, which is the art.
I dream that someday I’ll be recognized as a great desingner and that everyone will know my work. I still have a dream to live in Italy, to have a new Beetle, to travel the world, to know the culture of each country and to have a blue-eyed husky siberiano.
I’ve never dreamed about getting married and having children. I want to live by myself and be independent, until the moment I can’t put up with it anymore.
I know that the future still reserves some surprises for me, in the meantime I will live intensely the present, taking each day of my life as if it were the last.

And I wish a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year for everyoby.

Hi André,
I'm here to write about this year, about me and my life. It's not so easy but here we go...
First I would like to thank you for our class, as we learned much more than english, also about the beginning of the words, humanity and the human being. Thank you very much!

To be honest I'm tired and snowed under with tests, so I wish be on holiday more than never. In this vacation I would like to travel, go out, arest and do all things that I like.
Next year is the last, by on side I'm happy because I'm intend to pass on college to "Social Comunication" and start a new "time" in my life. But by another I will miss my class, my friends, my teachers and the school. Although my true friendship are forever!

I've always dreamt of being an actrees and I'm going to make this come true. I intend to start a career soon. This is my future plans. I hope I can live doing what I really enjoy: playing!
This is a little bit of me and my ambitions.
I hope everybody enjoy your holiday and Happy New Year=)
2009... Here we will go!

My god! It's finally over!
I finally got the last year of school, and it's wierd when we get into school: it feels like we're stepping in a bubble that would never burst. But it did!!!
Now that November arrived and specially the crazy week of final exams arrived too, the end it's very close : We never get to hear about "sleepy" students again! ( and never try to sleep too in class) hahahahahha!
It's so sad to think I may never see some of the people I'm used to see and talk everyday for these past three years. (maybe some of them will keep touch, or maybe they just will follow diferent paths from me...)
I hope I get to see them someday in the future, in some class reunion that makes us remind of the good times togheter.

Lucas C. disse...

Well, I don't know what to write but I'll try to say what comes to my mind right now...

Lately I've been reflecting about how sad is to say good-bye, considering that it's the end of the year and some of our friends won't be with us next year.

I wish to all my friends who are leaving Maria Raythe, a bright future, and for those who will need to do the 'fourth exam' - it includes me, lol- courage and strengh to pass through this though moment... let's do it!

Andre, you were one the best teachers I ever studied, just because you could not only understand me but also tried to give me some advices.

This year is in the end, and make us remember all our moments together. I think this last year was the best, everybody grew up much more than the other years.
I know that this days will be our last like a class and maybe we're never going to see everybody together again, but I know that the memories will never be forget by anybody, so.. here we go: a cliche music.

"No one could ever know me
No one could ever seem me
Seems you're the only ones who knows
What it's like to be me
Someone to face the day with
Make it through all the mess with
Someone I always laugh with
Even at my worst, I'm best with you, yeah"

Hi André,
I really liked this year, althought the difficulty.
I studied a lot but I hope to continue the same pace next year. I am very tired, but I will make such an unforgettable vacation.
In my holidays, I want to enjoy every free time to go to the beach, to plan a travel and I wish get arrive in my house when to down.
The next year,I have to study more than this year, because I want to be a lawyer and try a public college.
My grandmother would like that I study medicine, because she believes that this is a better job than lawyer, but it´s what I like.
In January, I will travel to Spain, England, Portugal and France. I will stay there twelve days. This is my birthday gift.
This is a little bit of what I lived and my plans about my goals.
I hope to see you next year.

We'll never be apart,
One heart, one mind yeah
One day we'll be together
Remeber this old world is yours and mine (yeah)

See that man with a pen and gun ?
Says its over for everyone (oh no)

We'll never be apart,
One heart, one mind yeah
One day we'll be together

In every stage of my life I grow more and more, and the year that I grew more was this one, for sure.

Hey André,

When this year began, nobody would believe that would so quickly.I remember the first day of school, when I had not idea about what awaited us. Everybody spoke of their vacation, no one ever thought in exams, today ...

About the classes I liked so much when we talk about Chaplin and when we played the guitars in the classroom.

In 2009 we will decide our lives. Will be a hard moment, however no impossible. I hope nobody give up your dreams. If someone falls, I hope raise your head and keep walking.

Ana disse...

Hi Andre,

I will win!
Nothing prevents me from walking, although some obstacles have appeared in front of me.
When you want something, the difficulties are incentives, to win our goals.
There is no defeat, failure, injury to one who comes out on the field to fight.
Only discouraged and quit one who does not know what he wants.
So do not be afraid to fight ....

Hi Andre,
this year was a year of many conquests in my professional life like musician and in my student's life. Like student I had some difficulties but what were soon outmoded with much joy and high-esteem.
In every holidays I intend to give continuity to my works like musician, and it is clear to amuse me very much with my girlfriend, friends and relatives. André, is that ... on the best holidays for you, a great embrace!

Rael disse...

The end of this odissey has finally come, after 15 years of Maria Raythe, it's finally came. I don't know if I happy, or sad or what the shit is passing trough my head now, so many things I wish to have done, I many things I did wrong, so many things I wanna apologize... I know I didn't reach what I could have been reached, neither became the one that some wished me to became, and I apologize for that, for the three years, that procrastined sooo much, I wanna apologize me too. I can not regret here for all the things that did't do or for all that I did wrong, and unfortunatelly I can not turn back on time, but not only me but everyone can do a new beggining. The years there are to come, the months, and every day to rest of our lifes the are still to come, are the days in that we can all make a new beggining, And if there is something that I want to wish not for me but for all that for that years, have a part in my life is, good luck, not also good luck, but somethings that people often desire to others, but never realize the meaning of them, I want to wish you all; balance, happiness, peace, and Love. And if we never face of again, it doesn't really matter, cause I think the important is not the time that the things have, the important is that they have been sincere. And with all the sincerity I have, I wish you all the best, today, tomorrow and ever.

I love you all.

Hi André,
Vacation has come for some for us but I still almost there hehe Now it's time to do all the late homeworklike yours xD Even if it won't worth some grade, I want to do it.
In this vacations I hope to enjoy it the most, watching movies - including french one's such as Amelie Poulain, because I learned a lession watching the movie "Scaphandre et le papillon", that I should seize the life the most, because you never know what may happen, and in case it happen, try to always keep the mind opened, to look on the bright side and always fight for what you like, that is, living like a butterfly and not get stuck in a scaphandre breathing the air that's not yours, in a world that you don't belong in.
Talking about France, if you're really going there this time, can you bring me something, just a simple cheap gift, please?
Thank you about the teaching that you've passed us besides pure english.
See you next year.
