    Article by Anna Pickard. "Virtual people, real friends." Thought I'd share. http://goo.gl/RXHxi
    I see her point but at least in my surroundings nobody considers such thing with disdain. Not even the part of my family that is very traditional. I think nowadays the general public is very open to that, though I may be wrong.

    After all, Internet is just another tool that can lead to meet and find friends. In fact, I met my girlfriend on Internet!

    It's true that people can put on a show on Internet, but isn't kind of the same face-to-face? To an important stent, it is. So just like face-to-face, one just needs to be careful, after all there are bad and unfair people in every corner.

    Yes, its cool and all but nothing beats face to face interaction. I think people spend too much time talking trough the internet. It seems to me that isolation is growing and that we are forgetting to actually have real contact with each other. At least thats my vision, though truth be said, im kind of a lonely person. Dont really know what happens in the real world.

    I agree that face to face interaction is the most desirable option, it's way more heartwarming than when you stick to the virtual one. However there are people that are somehow limited precisely by the real world and cannot get to be really as they are theirselves face to face, causing them sadness and frutratrion in their lives.

    However with the help of the virtual tools we can get these kind of people to actually come in to the real world, getting healed from their isolation.

    On the other hand we also should keep in mind that oftenly the "real world" can be as misleading, cold and hollow as the virtual one can be. In other words, the real world itself is able to cause isolation too.

    So in this case we can also help people to get a healthy relationship with the real world by using the virtual tools properly, just like in the previous case, by healing the frustration and loneliness of people that otherwise would be isolated anyway without the existence of Internet.

    To sum up my point, I think what it'd be best for our society is ineed doing a good use of the virtual world in a way that can help us in the real one. Sticking to the virtual one or doing a bad use of it, I agree, is unhealthy.

    Oh my, how sexy xD

    I agree with the general opinion of the writer, although there is a hoe called distance...

    In related news, I just came back from taking a test on the Use of English, Listening and Reading parts of the FCE. It wasn't so difficult, but I can't wait to know the results

    Hope you aced it.

    I considered in the past to do some sort of exam or something to get some kind of certificate of recognition, but I'm not going to do anything until I get rid of my stupid Spanish accent. I hate it. I HATE IT!

    But since I don't feel like going abroad (fuck that) I was planning to do some reading aloud exercises and...

    Aloud...

    Aloud...........

    Processing.....

    Girls Aloud.

    The fuck I was talking about?

    Ok, anyway, here have a song I like.

    xD You are freaking crazy. What's so bad about a simple accent? And I don't like the song at all, but to each his own.

    I have this opinion that when you learn a language you are supposed to learn also a native accent, since accents are part of the language.

    Hm...indeed they are, but a very secondary one. Better to take care about not making explode timpani with your pronunciation.

    PS: 8,8 in Grammar and Reading, 6,6 in Listening. I thought it to have been easier...

    Moai,what exam did you do? Tell us more about it, please. I'm preparing myself for the FCE but I think it's really complicated... I still make a lot of mistakes Tomorrow I'll start a conversation group with an English teacher, because sometimes I feel lazy about studying... I finish working and I'm tired, it's like my brain is over xD So I really hope to enjoy that group!

    PS. This afternoon despite being tired I studied 1 lesson from my FCE book!!!
