The best phone right now is definitely a blackberry, it has all the basic things every phone needs but also some extras that make it stand out next to the others. A blackberry is easy to use because there are no real complicated features that can't be understood. Most people think of the blackberry as a big, work phone but there are phone versions from blackberry that aren't bigger than any other phone. I love the blackberry because it has the real keyboard, it is not complicated, and it has awesome applications. It's also very easy to surf the internet or talk to other people by using a normal SMS, MSN or even facebook. My favorite thing about the blackberry is BBM (Blackberry Messenger), which allows you to talk to other people who have a blackberry for free. It's perfect because it is so simple to use and easy to connect with others, you can send photos, documents and links among many other things. It's like MSN but only for those who own a blackberry. BBM is continuously upgraded, and better and newer version come out all the time, and these downloads are for free, which makes it even better. There are many different types of blackberry but my favorite (the one I own) is the Blackberry curve 8520! It is relatively small without making the keyboard complicated to use, a good camera, and has a trackpad (a small version of the ones on laptops). If you are thinking about buying a new phone, you should definitely buy a blackberry!

I think it is perfect to write about carnival right now since it is soon here (next week to be more exact!!!) I love carnival, not only because it is a whole week off school, but because it gives us a whole week to relax after starting the stressful life of going to school and we can just travel and be with friends and family to have fun. This carnival I'm going Rio de Janeiro and I'm really excited about, it is the second time I go there during carnival and I can't wait to go back there. Like last time, I'm going to see the Carnival train, which is so exciting and fun, and since this is my last carnival in Brazil it will be good to end it in the sunny city of Rio. I'm planning on getting really tanned and enjoy the week off school. Carnival is a great week to relax and forget about school for a while, and give all the students a chance to enjoy themselves. No matter if you're staying in São Paulo or traveling to another city or country, I'm sure that everyone will have a great time and agree with me when I say that Carnival is one of the best parts of the second semester of school :)

(The photo is part of Carnival train that I saw two years ago and if I don't remember wrong, it was the first one that came during the train.)

One of the worst things with school is that we can't wake up whenever we want, we never really get to sleep as long as our bodies should. When I wake up for school, I'm almost always tired because I didn't wake up by myself but by the stupid alarm. However when I do get to sleep as long as I want, I tend to wake up feeling nice and alert because my body got the hours of sleep it needed. Not only is sleeping extremely comfortable and relaxing, it is very important and to be healthy we need to sleep. Many teenagers tend not to get enough sleep because they go to bed too late, which is usually caused by them not wanting to sleep, or they are very stressed with school and other factors that they simply can't. Although most of us know that sleep is extremely necessary to be healthy, many people still don't sleep enough and don't seem to try and do something about it. I know that I love to sleep but sometimes I don't sleep enough because I don't have time or I want to read my book, stay on the computer, or watch some TV program, so I stay up late although I have to wake up early. Nothing is better than waking up feeling completely rested and just knowing that you just had a really good night sleep.
