10.000.000 dollars!!!!!!!!

With such an amount of money, I will be over the moon. I also won't be in the red until my death. I don't know if I am gonna buy a lot of fancy stuff or if I will save my money. I think I would buy useful stuff like a car and a house. I will also save and invest the rest of my money. If you win 10.000.000$, you have to enjoy a part of this money. Personaly, I will buy a fancy luxury BMW and a beautiful house in a quiet neighbourhood. These purchases will just cost a little part of my money. I will also give money to charity.

Although most of people will stop working and will lie around. I will carry on working and try to find something interesting to do. Spending money without earning money is totally impossible for me, I must make something out of my life and have different goals. Undoubtedly, I will have vacations in beautiful destinations and in good hotels.

I will enjoy my money as much as I can but I will remain down to earth.

Old school

In Belgium, we have mostly good schools. Schools offer a lot of different subjects to their students. Most of these subjects are manditory: every student has to study mathematics, French, Science, English, Dutch, History, Geographic........ But there are also extra subjects such as Latin, Greek, German, Economics, drawing and extra hours of sciences and mathematics.
Indeed, we have a great choice of lessons.

In my country, there are different types of schools: private schools and public schools.
therefore, the way to teach is different in both schools. Catholic education is much stricter than the public education system. In catholic school, they have to wear uniform and the rules are stricter. In public school, you can wear whatever you want. But there are more troubles like fight during the break time.
The level is still good in both school.

Courage, bravery

My grandfather is old and he is going to die like everyone in this world. Most of the time, death is a sad moment in the life but death is unavoidable. Consequently, you have to relax and not to feel depressed and downcast. You have to think about the present and to enjoy the life with everybody as much as possible.

The last year, my uncle died in China and we still don't know the main reason of his death. The government told to my family that my uncle had committed suicide but we have still no proof.
For sure, I was very sad but I tried to be brave and to do something to help my widowed aunt.
I tried to see her a lot of times to cheer her up.
It was a very difficult situation for me. I didn't show a lot of sadness but I was downcast. Therefore, I tried to remind myself of all the good memories I had had with my uncle. It is a very difficult way to avoid the depression but it only works if you are brave enough.

Consequently, you have to enjoy the time with your family and your friends as much as possible because you know that they are going to die. You have to keep in mind that everybody is going to die.

It is my advice to feel better after and before the death of someone.

How you come across

This year, I have noticed that a lot of children are very rude to other children and also to their parents. In the past, I think that children were better educated than now because parents are less strict than 25 years ago.

Nowadays, children aren't polite and they are also disrespectful. For example, they don't thank when they receive something, they don't show respect to older people. They are becoming egocentric.
A lot of teenagers are also disrespectful because they spit in the street, they don't wait for people before eating, they are offensive to people who are different from them.

The main reason of those bad manners is the education!!!!!
Parents have an important role in the future of their children. In fact, they have to educate well their children because if they don't, children will be rude all their life. In addition, you can't change the education of a 14-year-old child.

A music review

Artist: Eminem
Album: The Marshall Mathers LP

Eminem is undoubtedly one of the best rapper in this world, his voice is amazing and he can sing very fast. Despite his bad vocabulary, his songs recount real facts as racism and poverty in the world.

The Marshall Mathers LP is the Grammy Award-winning third studio album by American rapper Eminem. This album had been released in 2000 in the USA.
This album is much more personal and serious than the prescedent The Slim Shady LP , Eminem attacks people who criticized his first album and he also boasts in this album his rise to the fame.

As far as I am concerned, this album is really good because there are a lot of different topics and also because you can make a relation with the precedent album.

Vancouver VS Brussels

From my point of view Vancouver looks like Brussels because they are both important cities.
Brussels is a crowded city such as Vancouver because they are both cities which attract tourists.
There are further similarities. In both cities, there are a lot of foreign people and the weather is almost the same.

There are also some differences: in Brussels we speak French and Dutch. In the other hand, in Vancouver people speak mostly english. There is a further point: in Brussels most of the immigrants come from North Africa. In the other hand, in Vancouver most of the immigrants come from Asia and India.

In my opinion I haven't seen significant differences for 10 years.
As far as I am concerned Brussels didn't change too much.
