Writers' Corner #11

My favourite TV programme

My favourite TV programme is called ‘Skam’ and it is a Norwegian series. I watch it online because there is no channel broadcasting it now. Although I have subtitles, it still is a little hard to understand the series as they speak Norwegian.
‘Skam’ is about a group of teenagers and their lives while they are in high school. They all have different beliefs, perspectives and religions, which makes this series even more interesting! This series has four seasons and each of them focuses on different characters and their problems. The first tells you about Eva and her problems with her boyfriend and her old friends from middle school. The second one is about Noora and how she stands up for her causes along with the most idiotic boy from school. The third one is about Isaak and Even, and in it Isaak opens up about his sexuality; he starts dating Even and fighting his problems. I am still watching the fourth season – it is about Sana, a Muslim girl, who loves a non-Muslim boy and has to prepare everything for the ‘Russ bus’, a Norwegian student tradition.
I love this series because of the several emotions that we get to feel with the characters and their actions. Besides, we get to know a new language and new cultural aspects like the ‘Russ bus’, which is the main point of the series.

Writers' Corner #10

You want to be a nurse or an architect, a lawyer or a member of our military? You’re going to need a good education for every single one of those careers.  You can’t  drop out of school and just drop into a good job. You’ve got to work  for it and train for it and learn for it.  
(Barack Obama)

Do you believe in the benefits of engaging in different activities/experiences or do you think that education should always be a young person’s priority?

Education is always important for younger people but it shouldn’t be the number one priority. School can only teach you a bit about life, so you have to use other resources to obtain experience and knowledge to overcome life obstacles. The more you know and the more information you learn inside and outside school, the better. As Obama says in the quote, “you’ve got to work for it and train for it and learn for it”.
Of course no one can learn everything in life, but if you want to pursue something more specific, you should try and learn the most about it. You can travel, read books about it, workshadow or even do an internship. The latter – workshadowing and doing an internship - will give you the most knowledge if you already know what you want. When you apply for another job, you can write on your resume about that internship or whatever you did to gain skills, and they will probably value you more for that, so you will have more chances of being chosen.
To conclude, my advice to you is, while you are studying, try to do different things to gain experience in life, and even after you start working, keep on learning, about your area and still more!

Este mês andamos a ler

Escuro, de Ana Luísa Amaral, é um extraordinário livro onde se reflete sobre a literatura e sobre as inquietações do nosso tempo e do nosso quotidiano, e onde surge, com grande fulgor, um diálogo polifónico com Fernando Pessoa e o seu drama em gente. Porque «O lume que as sustenta, / a estas vozes, / é mais de dentro, e eu não o sei dizer».
