THE INDEPENDENCE OF SCOTLAND AND CATALUÑA

This year we have had a lot of problems with the issue of independence and it hasn’t finished yet. We see the case of Scotland and a lot of Spanish people think that they should be independent. However, when foreign people ask us, if Cataluña should be or could be independent, we don’t have the same answer.

Some people say that the case of Scotland is not the same as the case in Cataluña. It is true that they are in two different regions, that their purpose after their “possible Independence”, is different. But we have to take into account that they are people that want their independence, because they don’t feel English in one case or Spanish in the other case, they have their own language and they are in a specific territory, so they have the possibility to be independent. It’s for that reason that I don’t understand some people when they say, that Cataluña can never be independent.

In spite of this, I personally don’t want the independence of Cataluña or Scotland, because I think that not all the Catalans feel only Catalans and not Spanish, and not all the Scottish feel only Scottish and not English, the Catalans or Scottish that want the independence don’t represent all their country. In fact, in the case of Cataluña, they are only the third part of Cataluña. 

Nevertheless I think that they should vote and be conscious about what they want. It will only affect me, if F.C. Barcelona doesn’t play in the Spanish league (because I don’t like it) and if I go another time to Scotland or Cataluña, so for me it wouldn’t be a problem.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF MUSIC?


There are a lot of people that like a lot of different types of music, but not everyone likes the same type of music. There are some that like rock, other like jazz... Because, if we had had the same opinion for music, we would have been robots, and we are humans.

It’s true that there are some types of music that you can hate like reggaeton or artists like JB... However, everyone should accept others' opinions, and not be intolerant with the interests of these people, like in my class. 

My favourite songs this year were Because I’m happy (Pharrel Williams), Hey Brother (Avicii) in English, and in French Sur ma route (Black M). Although, there are some artists that they will never die like ACDC, Michael Jackson, Mika, Bruno Mars or Train, because they are my favourite singers.

WHAT IS PODEMOS?!


Podemos is a left-wing party created in January 2014. Nowadays it is the third political party, and the first in intention of vote. They are mostly from the left, but they also have people with conservative ideas. They have become successful because they want to change the bipartisanship of PP and PSOE. But, they have to solve a lot of problems if they want to win the elections. 

On the one hand, they have to be as they had said when they started, because they are having a lot of problems with TVs, newspapers... and they are beginning to have corruption in their party. Moreover, they have to define their intentions, I mean that we don't know how they are going to do what they would like to do in Spain.


On the other hand, it's true that I'm not going to believe all that the TVs or newspapers are saying, because, if we want to talk about corruption, they are the first that have corruption, and they are the opposition. And not many people take into account this fact. In addition, they are doing things that neither the Conservative Party nor the Socialist Party have ever done, and that is why they have gone to a lot TVs to defend their opinions.

All in all, I think that we have to wait and see if they have become so popular just because they haven't been in the government yet. But, seeing the things that have happened in the latest weeks, I can only say one thing, and it's that we tend to hate all what is new, and I'm not talking about technology.
