Write a 250-word story beginning: "Life is full of surprises. I woke up one morning and found I could make myself invisible at will. On the first day … "

Delusions
Life is full of surprises. I woke up one morning and found I could make myself invisible at will. On the first day, I was really scared and confused. I didn’t know what to do, how to control the power or how to use it. As the days passed, I was getting better and better, being attentive with my unusual ability, so that nobody could find out about it.
After a few weeks, I started to like my temporary invisibility. One day, I turned invisible without realizing and went to school. Everyone seemed to ignore me.
A bit confused, I went to the class and took a sit. Everything was good, until the small break between the classes. When the bell rang, I took my phone and while I was looking on it, I suddenly got into a classmate. I dropped my phone which has lost its invisibility and for a second, I made an intense eye contact with my colleague. After that, he fainted. That was the moment I realized that I was invisible all day long. I don’t know if it was anger or disappointment, but I started to run far away from the class, ashamed by everything that happened. I looked at my hands that were decoloring and recoloring, alike a transcendence of delusions. With fear and shame, my heart started to beat faster and faster.
I don’t know what was scarier, the moment when I saw one of my friends fainting or the fact that I couldn’t control the power after all that time, followed by my enjoyment for the ability. So, it’s true. Life is full of surprises. Things that are bad may lead to good and in contrast, things that are good surely predict something unexpected, in any way possible.


2. INFORMAL LETTER You have just received a letter from your friend John including the following words: “I have read the book you recommended and I would like to know which character made the greatest impression on you. I’ll tell you later about my own choice.” Write a letter to John answering his question and explaining why the character made such an impression on you. Use between 120 and 150 words. Sign your letter as Andrei/Andreea.


Dear John,

I’m glad that you read ”Harry Potter”, the book I recommended to you, and I hope that you enjoyed it. In your last letter, you asked me about the character which made the greatest impression to me. Well, I’ll choose Professor Severus Snape. He is the strongest mental human I have ever met or read about. I always had a bad feeling about him because he was so unpredictable in all his actions, but he proved me wrong at the end of the book. He was severe and sober, because of his dreadful, mysterious past and also because the one he loved was killed, but I’m sure you have already read that.

I’m waiting for your answer. I hope you will tell me about your favorite character.

My best wishes,

Andrei


3. A review of a book, game or film of your choice ( 150 words)


The hateful eight

For the trick to work, you need time, the right cast, and some very wide-angle lenses to drink the details in – and the stately, imperious thrilling new film from Quentin Tarantino has all three in supply.

The Hateful Eight is a 2015 American revisionist Western mystery film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. It stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern as eight strangers who seek refuge from a blizzard in a stagecoach stopover some time after the American Civil War.

As the characters investigated one each other, realizing that nobody is not what it seems, you find yourself studying their faces, or searching through the background for clues, watching loaded, spotting alliances being forged and broken.

So, if you’re an action, crime, dark comedy movie lover, this is the best film you can watch!

1. Informal letter

Dear John,

I hope you enjoyed the Harry Potter series books I recommended you written by J. K. Rowlings and that Harry Potter became your favourite character.
From my point of view, Harry Potter is a fantastic character. Throughout the series, Harry is described as having his father's perpetually untidy black hair, his mother's bright green eyes, and a lightning bolt-shaped scar on his forehead. He is further described as "small and skinny for his age" with "a thin face" and "knobbly knees", and he wears round eyeglasses, which are the clue to his vulnerability
Harry is strongly guided by his own conscience, and has a keen feeling of what is right and wrong and is forced to make his own decisions from an early age on.
Harry's character flaws include anger and impulsiveness; however, Harry is also innately honorable; for the most part, he shows humility and modesty, often downplaying his achievements
Throughout the series, Harry Potter is described as a gifted wizard apprentice. He has a particular talent for flying, and gets him a place on a Quidditch team one year before the normal minimum joining age.
Harry is also gifted in Defence against the Dark Arts, in which he becomes proficient due to his repeated encounters with Voldemort and various monsters. He becomes able to cast the very advanced Patronus Charm. He is also a skilled duelist, the only one of the six Dumbledore's Army members to be neither injured
Harry also has the unusual ability to speak and understand "Parseltongue", a language associated with Dark Magic. This is because he harbors a piece of Voldemort's soul.

Looking forward to receive your thoughts about the Harry Potter character

Sincerely
Andrei

2. Story

Life is full of surprises. I woke up one morning and found I could make myself invisible at will. On the first day …I’m thinking that being invisible means I could do whatever I wanted to do. I had so many ideas of crazy things that I could do that were running thorough my head.
First thing I had to do was prank my brothers. I picked my brother Freddie’s nose. He woke up and looked around. He didn’t see anything but heard my giggling. He got scared and ran to my mom’s room.
After that I thought to myself that this is childish. I need to do something good for this world.
I would like to find myself in company of eminent scientists of the two powerful blocks the U.S.A. and the Russian Federation. I would take away their scientific formula and bring them to my own country. I would work upon them and amaze my countrymen with wonderful results. Thereupon, the government will honor me for my achievement and recommend me for the award of the Nobel
By nature man is curious. He is more curios if he knows none can see him. You will not blame me if I would then rush to see how the Queen of England lives and works. It would be a great privilege for me to do this uncommon thing
Another thing that I would like to do being invisible is that to swim deep in the ocean and discover treasures or find an entire secret sea city like the one Ariel lives in.
If would feel tired I would enter some cinema hall. None would demand the ticket. I would smile proudly at those presenting tickets to the gate keeper. Having enjoyed myself for a while, I would slip out of the hall during the interval. I would visit the cinema restaurant where I would pick up a few cups of Ice cream and would refresh myself.
This would be an exciting experience but at one moment I would return to the normal because I would miss my friends and family with whom I would like to spend the usual moments.

3. A review of the film- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

One of the most recent film I have seen is Star Wars: Rogue One, directed by Gareth Edwards, produced by Lucas film and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

In my opinion, this film has a very big importance in the Star Wars universe and I enjoyed watching it. The plot of this film is captivating for some of us, on the other hand, the special effects such as the dynamics of the characters or the soundtrack could impress us more. Of course the elder movies are at least as great as this one, but the clarity of the images has been upgraded and caught your attention better.

Approximately six years after the formation of the Galactic Empire, research scientist Galen Erso is forcibly recruited by Imperial Director Orson Krennic to complete the design of the Death Star, a space station capable of destroying entire planets. Galen's wife, Lyra Erso, is killed when she shoots and injures Krennic to stop him from taking her husband. Their daughter, Jyn Erso goes into hiding.

Thirteen years later, Bodhi Rook, a defecting Imperial pilot, smuggles a holographic message from Galen for the Rebel Alliance. An adult Jyn is freed from Imperial captivity and brought to rebel leaders by Rebel intelligence officer Cassian Andor. They convince her to rescue Galen so that they can learn about the Death Star. However, Cassian is covertly ordered to kill Galen, rather than extract him to prevent the weapon from being built.

Jyn, along with Rebel officer Cassian Andorr and his reprogrammed imperial droid K-2SO, arrive on the moon Jedha where there is an armed uprising against the Empire. With the aid of blind warrior Chirut Imwe and mercenary Baze Malbus, she reunites with her old revolutionary mentor Saw Gerrera, who has captured Rook. He shows her the hologram, in which her father expresses his love for her and discloses his coerced help on the project. The hologram also reveals that her father covertly compromised the Death Star's design by including a subtle vulnerability in its reactor that can be used to destroy it. He tells her that the structural plans are at an Imperial high-security data bank on the planet Scarif. Meanwhile, Imperial Governor Grand Moff Willhuff Tarkin meets with Krennic on the Death Star and expresses skepticism about the project and its management. As a demonstration, Krennic uses the weapon to destroy Jedha's capital and crush the insurgency led by Gerrera, forcing Jyn and her group to flee with Rook, while Gerrera elects to remain and die with the city. Tarkin congratulates Krennic, but then uses Rook's defection and security leak under Krennic's command as a pretext to take over control of the project.

Jyn tracks her father to an Imperial research facility on the planet Eadu, where Cassian chooses not to kill Galen. When Krennic arrives and threatens to have Galen's main team killed for causing the security leak, Galen confesses he is responsible. Krennic executes the team nevertheless, and Jyn makes her presence known just as a rebel bombing raid begins, leaving Galen fatally wounded. Jyn allows her father to die in her arms before she and her group escape in a stolen Imperial cargo shuttle. Jyn proposes a plan to steal the Death Star schematics from Scarif, but with her father and Gerrera dead and the hologram destroyed, the Rebel leadership have no way of verifying her story and cannot agree on a plan. Frustrated at their inaction, Jyn, Cassian, K-2SO, and a number of rebels take the shuttle to raid the data bank themselves. Before they take off however, they are confronted by rebel command, who asks them to identify themselves. Rook answers with "Rogue One" before taking off without permission.

Meanwhile, Krennic meets with Darth Vader, seeking his support and an audience with the Emperor, but Vader dismisses his appeal for recognition. As the three search the data bank for the design plans, the rest of their team set off explosives and commence firing in the nearby landing area in order to distract the resident stormtroopers. Meanwhile, the Rebel fleet learns about the battle from intercepted imperial transmissions and deploy in support. Imwe is killed after activating the master switch to allow communication with the Rebel fleet from Rook's shuttle. After informing the rebel fleet that it must take down the planetary shield to allow transmission of the plans, Rook and the ship are destroyed by a grenade. Malbus also dies in battle shortly after. Meanwhile, K-2SO sacrifices himself to allow Jyn and Cassian to retrieve the data, but they are ambushed by Krennic, who shoots Cassian and pursues and corners Jyn on the roof.

Before he can kill her, Cassian, who has survived, shoots and badly wounds Krennic. Jyn then transmits the schematics to the Rebel command ship. Tarkin arrives on the Death Star and decides to use the superlaser to destroy the compromised base, killing Jyn, Cassian, and Krennic. The rebel fleet attempts to jump into hyperspace, but are intercepted by Vader's flagship. He boards the command ship and massacres the rebel troops in pursuit of the plans, only to watch as a blockade runner escapes with them. Onboard the fleeing ship, Princess Leia Organa declares that they will provide the Rebellion hope for its future.

I recommend this movie for every type of ages, especially for boys, will be impressed of the story.

1.STORY
Life is full of surprises. I woke up one morning and found I could make myself invisible at will. On the first day, I was shocked...I didn't know what to do or how to react to this new ability. I felt like a X-Men! However, after a while I started to know how to control it, but I was careful with this power. I didn't want anyone to know about it. I even watched The Hollow Man movies.

At school everything was fine and no one heard my secret. I was relieved, but one day I turned invisible without realizing. It was on a Friday at the last class. I went into the last bench and the teacher immediately came in and started teaching the lesson. The class was almost finished, but I suddenly fell asleep. When i woke up I saw the sunset on the window and I realized that I've slept to much...But how? No one noticed me? I took my stuff and when I wanted to leave the classroom I find out that I was invisible, also my phone was full with messages from my parents. Luckily, no was on the hallway so I could leave the school very fast and without being caught. When I arrived home before I met my rents I returned to normal. They were very worried,but they didn't asked me many questions...

After that day I realized what a big responsibility I have and the fact that life is full of surprises...Sometimes I want my normal life back, but I always think that this superpower could be use for helping and saving other people, not just for a personal purpose. So now I just need a cool costume and an interesting name. :)

2. INFORMAL LETTER

Dear John,

I'm happy that you read " The Perks of Being a Wallflower" by Stephen Chbosky, the book I recommended to you. Also in the last letter, you asked me about he character which made the greatest impression to me.

As you know, Charlie is the main character and protagonist of the novel and he is my favorite character. He directs the progression of the novel through the letters he writes to an unnamed "friend"( these letters describe Charlie's experiences in high school and at home ).

Charlie is constantly trying to gain a better understanding of the people around him and why they do what they do - particularly how they present themselves in public. He struggles with his obsession with observation, and is urged by many people - such as Bill, Sam, and Patrick - to participate more and truly engage his acquaintances and companions.

Charlie loves to read and often uses the framework of a classic novel to think and reflect upon his own life; he even hopes to become a writer at some point. His teacher Bill encourages him to develop these skills and repeatedly assigns Charlie extra books to read and additional writing exercises.

Also, Charlie struggles with apparent mental illness throughout his letters, but he never explicitly addresses this problem - rather, it lurks in the background of many of his accounts.

But the relation between Charlie and his aunt impressed me the most. Her shocking death aggravated his state of health; and in time, his friends and his writing hobby helped him.

I hope you like him too, because I found myself in him at some points...Also his evolution inspires me and the end of the novel gives me confidence...

I’m waiting for your answer. I hope you will tell me your favorite character.

Best wishes,

Caleb

3. MOVIE REVIEW - AMERICAN HUSTLE ( 2013 )

Cast: Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: David O. Russell

Synopsis: American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that's as dangerous as it is enchanting. Irving and Sydney are forced to set up an elaborate operation on corrupt politicians, including the mayor of Camden, New Jersey (Jeremy Renner). But the lonely Irvings wife, Rosalyn ( Jennifer Lawrence ) could affect this hole situation.

Review:

"American Hustle" is an black comedy-crime film, directed by David O. Russell. It was written by Eric Warren Singer and Russell, inspired by the FBI ABSCAM operation of the late 1970s and early 1980s. It involves an impeccably cast, formed with Hollywood's biggest names, who make this movie a masterpiece of modern cinematography.

This movie giddily embraces the excesses of its era. Some of its extravagances are purely decorative, and the costume and production designers, along with the hairstylist, must have had a blast. But all the shiny surfaces, the glitter ball and the gaudiness, also suggest a world in which everyone is anxious to shake off the post-Vietnam War, post-Watergate funk. The ghost of Richard M. Nixon hovers in the air; everyone is a fake and everyone wears a mask, even Richie, the F.B.I. agent. And then there’s Irving and Sydney. “We’ve got to get over on all these guys,” she tells him, when the scam seems to be going south. They may have to do the hustle but they’ll be doing it together. Also, I like that every character is unique and well individualized and I think that these are two of the reasons that make this film a special one.

The 70's era provide a pleasant atmosphere and real view of american society where corrupt politicians gain their power along with gangsters, where strange policemen are doing everything for more money, where bad guys become good guys and where the normal people are involved in this kind of madnesses, without their will. Also the humor gives the movie a brighter perspective of this world, where the power of love always wins...

I recommend this movie because it's very interesting and smart, the visuals are so good and the cast is incredible. I feel like between the viewer and the movie is created a strong connection that help us to understand the meaning o this "wild" situation.

INVISIBLE MAN

Life is full of surprises. I woke up one morning and found I could make myself invisible at will. On the first day, not having anything to do, i decided to test this cool ability so I went out and touched people to see if they can see me … And they couldn’t.

Seeing this actually worked I decided to do something more risky so I went in a police section. No one did see me so I just played some pranks on the cops and ate their donuts.

After exiting the police section I thought that the power is limited so I went in safe zones.However I would have walked around secret zones to discover country’s national secrets. Eh, maybe another time.

When I was casually walking on the street thinking about what should I do next, a person started running with a stolen woman’s bag. I decided I could use this power to help people so I went next to the burglar and pushed him. He fell on the ground, looking confused around. Some other guys came and held the bad guy until the woman came and got her bag. She thanked to the boys and went with the thief to the police section.

After this adventure I felt very good and even if I didn’t get a reward I felt like I was rewarded. I went home and slept.

After I woke up I wanted to scare my sister but realized I wasn’t invisible anymore…

WARCRAFT3

Warcraft 3 : Reign of Chaos is the third fantasy real-time strategy video game made by Blizzard Entertainment in 2002, placed in the Warcraft universe.
Back when I was little I used to go to my uncle and play this game. I loved every single playable race: from humans which had a very big population to undeads which were a hard to control race with their wood-cutting ghouls.
Warcraft 3 takes place in maps of varying size such as large fields or plains. Players have to establish settlements to gain resources, defend against other players, and train units to explore the map and attack computer controlled foes. There are three main resources that are managed in Warcraft III: gold, lumber, and food. The first two are required to construct units and buildings, while food restricts the maximum number of units the player may control at one time.
Warcraft III adds powerful new units called heroes. For each enemy unit killed, a hero will gain experience points, which allow the hero to level-up to a maximum level of 10. Progressing up a level increases the heroes attributes and also allows the hero to gain new spell options.
The game takes place in the fictional world of Azeroth. Several years before the events of the games, a demon army known as the Burning Legion intent on Azeroth's destruction corrupted a race called the Orcs, and sent them through a portal to attack Azeroth. After many years of fighting, the Orcs were defeated by a coalition of humans, dwarves and elves known as the Alliance; the surviving combatants were herded into internment camps, where they seemed to lose their lust for battle. With no common enemy, a period of peace followed, but the Alliance began to fracture. The game contains more campaigns each campaing featuring a different race which the player controls (2 Orc campaigns, 1 Human, 1 Undead, and 1 Night Elf).
Through each race's campaign, the player retains control of one or more heroes, which slowly grow in experience as the levels progress. This experience is carried over to subsequent missions, allowing the hero to grow throughout the course of the campaign.
While different in terms of storyline and precise gameplay, all of the different races' campaigns are structured similarly. Each begins with a level involving simple mechanics to introduce the player to the race and the basic elements of their hero and units. After one or two such levels the player's first "building mission" occurs, requiring them to build and maintain a base while competing with one or more enemy forces. The only campaign that breaks this pattern is the Night Elf campaign, whose first mission involves building a limited base. The last level of each race's campaign is an "epic battle" which means that the player has to strike down a large number of enemy foes and finally destroy their main base.
Ratings and oppinions :
Warcraft III was met with universal acclaim, according to review website Metacritic. While GamePro noted that "WarCraft III doesn’t revolutionize the RTS genre", they still praised Blizzard for delivering a title with "a well-executed story, drum-tight gameplay and a long shelf life as a multiplayer title." GameSpot noted that as with StarCraft, the ability to experience the action from all sides "is of great appeal." The reviewer also noted that Warcraft III made the early stages of the game more interesting and less formulaic; in most RTS games, he noted, "the initial build-up period in such games is merely a race to get to the best units first."Most reviewers noted that Blizzard had finally fleshed out the storyline of the first two Warcraft titles, giving each side its own motivations and differences beyond cosmetics. IGN noted that "There's not a ton that's new to RTS buffs out there, but it's done well enough that you either won't notice or won't care."




INFORMAL LETTER
My favourite character from the book “Warcraft : Lord of the Clans”, was obviously Thrall.
Being a good Leader Thrall was an orc left on a river by his parents when they were assassinated. The orc was later found by humans and held in the Blackmoure fortress.
As a baby he was fed by Blackmoure’s wife and treated like a normal child. When he was 6 years old he started training and at the age of 10 he started going into arenas, the owner of the fortress having lots of success with his orc warrior. However, he hates this kind of life. Thrall wanted to be a free orc and free his race which lost the will to fight.
With the help of his human friend he manages to escape. After that he starts raiding all of the human’s cells full of orc and encounters different people that are still willing to fight and even manages to find the tribe that was ruled by his parents.Then, Thrall takes some tests claims his tribe's respect and becomes a real shaman which can summon elements to help him.
In the end he makes a whole army of orcs and attacks the fortess where he grew and where he was being held, killing the cruel Blackmoore.
In the final battle, a friend of Thrall’s parents, Orgrim Doomhammer dies leaving his legendary armor and hammer to Thrall, telling him to use them to fight from now on.
Thrall is an example of leadership, friendship and loiality to his race and loved ones, and that's why he's my favourite character.

1.Life is full of surprises

Life is full of surprises. I woke up one morning and found I could make myself invisible at will.
On the first day I didn’t use my power, because I didn’t know how I get it and I was afraid that, if I would stay to much in my invisible form, I wouldn’t be able to get back to my normal shape.

On the second day, I decided to talk to my little sister, which is a little genius when it comes to science. She told me that I couldn’t be invisible without being in contact with an unusual substance. So I started to think at what I made in the last 48 hours. It was hard, but in the end we made the full reconstruction of my activities. Unfortunately, we didn’t realized what made me become invisible.

That scared me a little bit, because I didn’t know what else could happen if I won’t find a solution for making my power disappear. I really thought that what was happening to me was more like as a curse than a blessing. And I was thinking in this way until something happened. I was at the school’s library to take some books that I thought they could contain some useful information about my situation, when I heard two powerful shots. Whiteout knowing what happened, I decided to put the books down and make me invisible. And that was a very good choice, because two bank robbers just entered and took everyone hostage. I was the single chance of those people. In a short time, I got out of the library and called the police. The Special Forces told me that, if I wouldn’t act like that, the people inside the building could be hurt.

And that was the first time in my life when I realized that my powers may have a sense.



2.Informal letter

Dear John,

I’m glad that you have read the book I recommended to you. I hope you liked it. And I got to say that your question is very good. I’m not sure if I got a favorite character, but I think that the personage that made me the greatest impression is Lyra Belacqua. Of course, she is the main character, so I think this answer isn’t so unexpected how it is supposed to be. I got to recognize that all the decisions that she took and all what she made during her adventure fascinated me. I think her character is a great answer for your question.

That's all my news for now. Write me back as soon as you can.

Best wishes,

Andreea


3.A review of the film ‟Beauty and the Beast‟

It doesn’t matter if you are or aren’t a fan of Disney princesses or the classic fairy-tales. The musical ‟Beauty and the Beast‟ will blow your mind.

The special effects, sound, costumes, voice-overs, songs - overall production values are first-rate. They make you live the fairy-tale as you are transported to the castle along with Belle, experiencing her adventure. As she befriends the castle’s enchanting staff (voiced by the finest actors like Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci), you too grow fond of each and every character.

The depiction of eternal love between Watson and Stevens, however, isn’t as inspiring as the overall visual excellence and grandeur of this spectacular production. While story-wise it stays true to the original animated film, the execution is a lot darker, grimmer. The beast gets a terrifying makeover with Stevens rendering a decent motion-capture performance if not memorable. Watson plays the feminist heroine with conviction. While we like this protagonist, her slightly modified character lacks a certain amount of compassion, making her seem a tad conceited more than confident.

What essentially works for ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is its relevance. It stands out because no matter how old the tale, it holds significance especially today, when smart phones and selfies have turned us all into beauty loving beasts.





DINCA ALEXIA



DUMITRIU RĂZVAN

1. Sherlock Holmes (2009)


It may not be the Holmes of the novels, but that character could’ve never appeared in such a fun film. Downey is, of course, dynamite, and the idea of Holmes as possessing a mind so strong he finds everyday life dull is wonderful, especially with the fight scenes playing out in his mind beforehand. While overshadowed by his co-star Law’s Watson, likely also different from his literary counterpart, has tremendous chemistry with Holmes. As always, Irene Adler (played by Rachel McAdams) is too pretty to notice anything else. All in all, this is the most fun Guy Ritchie movie since “Snatch” or even “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”. The boat sequence and explosion – one of the most impressive effects I’ve seen in a long time – by themselves are each worth the price of admission. Again, it might not be the heady, authentic British Holmes of Basil Rathbone, but this film is one not to be missed!

2. Informal letter



Hi John,



I’ve just opened your letter. I’ll jump straight to the subject: my favorite character from “Flowers for Algernon” is Charlie. He was a young man that suffered of phenylketonuria (a disease that affected his brain), with an IQ of 68. Wanting to improve himself, Charlie attended reading and writing classes at Beekman College Center for Retarded Adults. There, he went through a surgery that almost tripled his IQ, reaching 185. However, as his intelligence, education and understanding of the world increased, his relationships with people deteriorated. Eventually, because of a flaw in the theory behind the intelligence enhancing procedure, Charlie starts reverting to his original mental state. Despite regressing to his former self, he remembers that he was once a genius. He cannot bear to have his friends and co-workers feel sorry for him. Consequently, he decided to go to live at the Warren Home School, where nobody knows about the operation. Soon after he moved at Warren’s, he died.



What’s your favorite character?



I look forward to your reply!

GHIŢĂ VICTOR-FILIP

Every great power comes with great responsibilities!
Life is full of surprises. I woke up one morning and found I could make myself invisible at will. On the first day I wanted to be sure it worked. So I decided to make myself invisible when my mother would come and wake me up to go to school. And so I did. When I heard here walking out of her room, I made myself invisible. When she entered the room, she saw the bed was empty so I had a few more minutes to lay in my comfortable bed. At first, I decided not to abuse my new super-power. So the next day I didn’t use it at all. Because I got grounded, I was not allowed to go outside and play with my friends. This was bothering me so I made myself invisible again and slowly stepped out of my room, went downstairs and exited my house and went directly to my friend’s place, at John’s house. After a few hours of great joy, I ran back home and hoped my mother or father hadn’t found out I was gone. I went back in my room the same as I left. And thankfully they hadn’t noticed I broke their rules. One day, after I benefited after getting invisible again, I couldn’t make myself visible. At first, I freaked out. I burst into tears and I thought nobody would see me again. I then suddenly remembered what the fairy who gave me power said: ‘if you can’t turn yourself visible, come to me’. And so I did. She turned me back into a visible form with her magic wand, as I promised not to use my power again. Since that day, I am always asking myself whether to turn myself invisible again or not.
Dear John,
Hi! How are you? I received your letter and as I soon as I could, I went to my room and begun writing you my answer. My favorite character is definitely Harry. He is such a kind person, but he is also very brave as well. He made me such a great impression. I read the books ‘Harry Potter’ about three times each, despite their length. I truly enjoy spending some hours in the Universe of Hogwarts with all the good and evil characters, being and witness at all the events. Although I have read all these books so many times, they keep surprising me over and over again. I am looking forward to receiving your answer.
Best whishes,
Andrei
Suicide Squad
One of my favorite movies is ‘Suicide Squad’. This is a great action movie in which a gang of dangerous incarcerated criminals were asked by a secret agency to form a defensive task force. Their first mission is to save the world from apocalypse. Despite their great success in saving the entire world, they still are brought back in prison. However, one of them, Harley Quinn, is saved in the end by her boyfriend Joker, the criminalalso known as Batman’s greatest enemy. The movie leaves us many questions, such as ‘What’s next?’, and I really am hoping that in the future there will be released a secondary movie in which everything will be explained.

The movie adaptation of Paper Towns was released in Summer 2015 starring Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne, and directed by Jake Schreier. In conclusion, I believe that “Paper Towns” is a suspenseful mystery, a central metaphor, and one of those road trips that every senior hopes he or she will have round out this exploration of the kind of relationship that can’t help but teach us a little bit about ourselves, concentrated in a powerfully great read.

1. Story

Life is full of surprises. I woke up one morning and found I could make myself invisible at will. On the first day, I went at school. It was so interesting, so I decided to fade in the background, even if I knew I was invisible. But it was so peaceful, walking the empty halls, while the only sounds which disturbed the silence were my footsteps. While the others had maths or chemistry in the classrooms, I walked everywhere, through the whole school, enjoying my feeling of non-existance and escaping from all cares and tensions of life... That gave me a long-desired opportunity to be away from the torments of the bitter realities of life. In that way, I got rid of the humdrum of life, roaming around like a free, delighted bird. Then, lost in my thoughts, I haven't noticed the ringing of the bell, which announced the end of classes. I watched everyone happily escaping from the school and going home. After that, I went in the park. I saw many people laughing cheerfully, being in a good mood. I slowly got bored, thinking that if you are invisible, you are lonely. Even if you see things that nobody else sees and even if you can travel the world, go at fancy restaurants and steal expensive clothes. Those were perks of being invisible. But the thought of being alone in all this mess, it was too much. With the passing of time, you just get bored of it. So I walked home, wishing of being visible again. And, Poof! Here I was. The random teenager, but visible. That day I learned that everything you wish gets boring after experiencing it and that human beings wish only for the things they can't have.

Hello John,

I just got your mail. To go directy to your question, my favourite character from "Miss Peregrine's home for peculiar children" was Emma. She is a syndrigast with the peculiarity of being able to manipulate fire. In the first book, she is described being 88 years old, but caught in the body of a sixteen years old girl. It is revealed that Emma's parents have tried to sell her off to a circus when she was 5 years old, but ended up abandoning her at one they weren't able to. In the second book, "Hollow City", she discovers a little girl who was in the same situation as her, and sees that the girl had also a peculiarity. She tries to convince the girl to join the children's home in Cairnholm, where the monsters couldn't reach them, but the girl is stubborn and doesn't want to leave alone her little sister. In "Library of Souls", Emma is described as bravest girl ever. And my opinion is that so she is. What about you? Who's your favourite character? I can't wait for your answer!!

Yours sincerly,

Andreea

1. Story

On the first day, I decided to visit the “Museum of Old Art” in Bucharest because it was May 20th, when the event called Night of Museums was held. On this special day, the sculpture of Constantin Brancusi "Child's head" was brought from Craiova and exhibited in this museum. So I visited the museum where the sculpture of this great Romanian artist, was exhibited. I got there, I scrambled through the crowd and I went into the museum. Sculpture impressed me.
There are many situations where people, although they are visible, behave as if they were not visible to other people. Like the situation the next day when I went through the park and an old woman had fallen. And her glasses jumped. I helped her get up and I gave him his glasses. People were passing away without seeing.
In this two days, I enjoyed my new status, to be invisible, but still I have decided to never be invisible ever since.

3. A review of a book, game or film of your choice ( 150 words)

One of my favorite novel is Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen. The novel has been write in 1813 and it is considered one of the best ten novel in the world literature. The subject is about life of a lower middle-class family in Georgian countryside. The Bennets have five daughters and they all get married before the novel ends. This enables Jane Austin to discuss various ways of looking at marriage as it appeared at the beginning of the 19 th century . Main plot about witty and attractive Elizabeth Bennet and proud and snobbish Fitzwilliam Darcy. The title refers to his pride-he cannot marry below his status-and her a prejudice-her initially bad opinion about Darcy. They finally marry, when both have given up some of their pride or prejudice.
