My favourite thing must be my scetchbook. I love to draw. Then I draw I feel really free because I can draw anything I want. A page in a scetchbook is an empty world but then you start drawing this empty world fills with colors and live. That's right. Live. Then you draw you create a little life. It makes you happy, other people happy. And it's really important to be happy.

My favourite thing is meeting my friends and chatting with them, It is important because I like to feel that I am not lonely also, in difficult situations I like to know their opinion in the situation and what should I do also, because when I do not see them or talk to them I feel bored . My another favourite thing is taking photos or selfies for me , I do not know why I love this but what I know that I be happy when I take photos for me , I consider it as a hobby.

My favorite thing is my amazon kindle. I can carry a whole library in it. It have been very useful for learning English. And I still use it to read many books in my born language (Portuguese). Like my friend said once “if my kindle broke I buy other the next day”.

My favorite thing is my 7 books, Harry Potter books. I read them every day and I must read at least 10 pages or I don't feel well. It's very important for me because when I read one of these books my body and my mind do REALLY relax. I've read them 9 times each and maybe some books more. I've seen the movies too so, when I read the book I imagine the scene not like in the films, but like my mind think them really. Only the actors who played at Harry Potter, only them I can see in my mind that are real. That do exist.

When someone talks to me whan I read Harry Potter I don't understand nothing. I can't hear the person. It's like I'm in an other world, in a world that only me and the magical world exist.

That's my favorite thing. That's why I love it.

It's hard to choose my best thing because the life of every person needs plenty of things which are useful daily.But in general I may say my Ipad is my best thing for this time. It is my English teacher. It answers all my questions and repeats the topics tirelessly. We may say its patient is unlimited and it doesn't let me feel any shyness. It suplies me all the materials needed for learning which are easy to get. It's never harassed me and always responded to my orders.
My ipad is my best friend. I get it any time I want and let me connect with other people either through messages or audio or video. The news of the world are in front of my eyes by a simple click and unlimited entertainments I can enjoy. In one word I describe it like a very big transportable library.

One thing I’d hate to be without is my laptop. It was given to me by my dad in 2012 Christmas holidays. It’s black and quite thin.

It’s really important to me because I have everything there like music, photos, etc. With my laptop I can inform and amuse myself and I can also do school work, so I get better marks.

I’d really be lost without it.
