Moving On

I’ve just come across this video on the net and I thought I’d share 🙂 I thought it was really beautiful. Enjoy it!

And you, did you like it too?

The Solid British Hat Band and my own learning English memories

I just couldn’t believe it when I came across this song my 1st BUP EFL teacher, Mrs. Àngels Bogunyà, used to play in class: I’m walking down the street (Present Continuous), by The Solid British Hat Band. It really made my day 🙂

And what about this other song, Mr. Monday (Simple Present)?

[Wherever you are now, Àngels, you’ll never know how many times I’ve fondly thought of you. I’m still so grateful for your patience and hard work!]

A new sing-along: How can you mend a broken heart?

One of the bands I’ve loved forever were the Bee Gees. Their music was part of my teen years and each of their songs has a place in my heart and are real keepsakes. This afternoon one of the songs I like best suddenly started playing in my mind and I thought I’d just share so that you can sing along and enjoy the beautiful melody and lyrics of this one. Hope you like it!

I could never see tomorrow, but I was never told about the sorrow.

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend a this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.

I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees
And misty memories of days gone by
We could never see tomorrow, noone said a word about the sorrow.

And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.

<3 Happy 2014! <3

May this new year bring you peace, health, love and happiness to you all.

Happy 2014!

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,500 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

My personal tribute to The Bee Gees, biggest among peers: rest in peace, Robin, and thank you for so many wonderful songs. Your music remains an unforgettable part of my youth and will be in my heart forever.

Love,

Happy Easter holidays

Once again 2nd term has finished and I can hardly believe that I got this far. A year ago I was still getting my chemo (immunotherapy) sessions and was still waiting to be operated for the fifth time within a year.

Amazing as it sounds, I’m ready to start Easter holidays once more and I couldn’t be more grateful for having gotten up to this point. For the first time in two years I’m wishing my students the best Easter holidays possible ♥!
