The feeling when really excellent chocolate melts in your mouth is truly amazing. If there is something I really love, it's chocolate but not any chocolate, only the really good ones like Marabou (Swedish chocolate) and Lindt. There are so many varieties of chocolate flavors and sometimes I have a really hard time to choose one that I want because usually they all taste great. For example, take Marabou. They have about 10 different flavors (if not more) and even though I prefer the original milk chocolate, I sometimes want to try another one but then I don't know which one to choose. My favorite flavors when it comes to Marabou and actually any other chocolate is the original milk chocolate because it's simple and just tastes wonderful. The reason that I love chocolate so much is because you can never get tired of it. No matter which flavor you choose, you'll not be disappointed because just the chocolate component makes it awesome. Another reason I really love chocolate is because it can make me happy any day. When I feel stressed, sad, or I am having a really bad day, chocolate is always able to cheer me up. Sometimes just the thought of having chocolate when I come home makes everything a little bit better. It may sound stupid, but chocolate really is one of the things that make life better.

Hotmail is one of the things I can't really live without. It's my way of communicating with others and sending important files and messages. I actually use Hotmail a lot and I consider it a lot better than G-mail or other e-mailing sites. I've used Hotmail since I was little especially because I have moved around a lot and with this site I can continue to keep contact with my friends even if I don't live close to them. Although Facebook has somewhat taken over for Hotmail, I still believe Hotmail makes my life better because I can send files and talk to my teachers, which is really important. Since I've used the site for quite some time, I have seen it evolve and these days it is so modern and easy to use. Hotmail has very good features and it is easy to use. It is easily connected to MSN and all your users from Hotmail are automatically your friends on MSN. It's very easy to organize your mails into different folders and you can search for old mails and find them without much difficulty. One of the best things is that you can put certain mails that come from sites that you don't want as junk mail so that you won't have to keep seeing them and it's faster to delete. Hotmail is a very good e-mailing site and I'm sure I'll continue using it for a long time.

Easter is one of the best times of the year. You get to meet and spend time with your relatives, and eat lots of excellent food and candy. Since every Easter I can remember my family and I have gone to my grandmother and grandfather's house to have dinner. They always make tons of food and even though we are around 15-20 people, it never gets close to finishing. I get to see my relatives on my mother's side, which include my aunt, her husband, my other aunt and uncle, and of course my six cousins. It's a lot of fun since we don't see each other very often, at least not me and my family because we always lived in different cities. We always have a lot to talk about and catch up, but in the end everybody gets so tired because of all the food consumed. The best part about Easter, though, is getting the easter eggs. In Sweden, we have paper eggs filled with different types of candy and it's so good! All the children get one and even though some of my cousins are over twenty years old, they get just as excited as they used too when they were younger. However these last couple of years, I've lived in Brazil and we haven't gone home for Easter so we have missed some of these dinners and it really sucks. But this Easter my sister and I actually went home, and we ate sooooo much and just had a lot of fun!
