DO YOU FANCY MERMAIDING?

Firstly, what is mermaiding? Well, mermaiding is exactly what it sounds like – swimming like a mermaid. Using a monofin and often a tail, made of fabric, neoprene or silicone.

Mermaids and other kind of magical creatures have become more and more popular over the years due to the great amount of TV shows, books, legends, documentaries and films about them, such as: H2O: Just Add Water, or Splash. Nevertheless, the most well-known one is Christian Anderson’s story “The Little Mermaid”.

Although, mermaiding is often seen to go hand-in-hand with cosplay, it is also a sport known for the large number of benefits that come from it, for example: stronger core muscles, higher endurance, higher flexibility in shoulders, spine and hips, and less back pain. This is also recommended as hobby to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday.

To conclude, I would like to say that I reckon that this sort of activities are very interesting for people of all ages as a way to chill and practise a sport at the same time. I would like to do this activity as I have been always fascinated by mermaids.

WHAT SORT OF THINGS DO YOU LIKE DOING IN YOUR LEISURE TIME?

First of all, I would like to say that I reckon tha free time is extremely important for people after working or studying hard. It is thought that leisure time should be used to improve people's minds or just to relax.

It is an open secret that nowadays children prefer to spend their spare time with their mobiles phones or playing video games. From my point of view, childhood should not be wasted using technology, and parents should not provide their kids with electronic devices at such an early age.

As a student I don't have much leisure time. Owing to this fact, I like to make a good use of it and do my favourite things, such as: listening to music, watching TV, going out with my friends and having a quality time with them, or just chilling out.

To conclude, I would like to say that it is recommended to have a hobby that you can practise in your free time or if you don't have one, try new things. There is a huge amount of upsides that come from having hobbies, for example: they provide an outlet for stress, unite you with others and have physical health benefitis.

Pirates of the Web

Over the past few years, downloading music from the internet has become more and more popular, and with the tecnology improvements is getting easier to do it, for example: there are people that can download an album that has not been released yet.

In the old days people used to fall in love with a song they heard on the radio and they had to buy the whole entire album to listen to that one song again. Today it is possible to download that one song you love at any time without spending any money.

However, not all that glitters is gold, there is a large range of disadvantages that come from downloading, such as: there are some pages that have virus that can damage your computer or mobile phones.

To conclude, I would like to say that I reckon that, in spite of all the advertisements, you should not download music from the internet, people will still do it because they are getting something that they love for free.

Why not Nigeria for our summer holidays?

To be honest Nigeria has never been on my mind, for this reason it has been interesting to search information and discover unknown and amazing facts of this wonderful country.

Tourism is a growing industry in Africa, but is Nigeria a safe place to travel to? It is said that travelling around west Africa is an unpredictable business, and there are a lot of stories about travellers that make you think that Nigeria is not that worthy.

Nigeria has a lot of spectacular things to offer to the tourist, but Nike Art Centre, which is an art gallery of African artwork and culture, is a must for every traveler. If you are more into nature you should definitely visit Lekki Conservation Centre, Agodi Gardens and Jabi Lake.

To conclude, I would like to say that Nigeria is a truly unique country!. Something that is very highlight in this country is its food, its most famous dishes are: Jollof rice, Garri and Pounded yam.

Whining weaker men when ill, a fake?


It is open secret that since the beginning of times women have been viewed as the weaker sex, but is this true or false? Who are stronger, men or women?. From my point of view, the strengh of someone does not depend on their sex.

Nowadays, a lot of scientists think that women are stronger than men when it comes to illnesses, for example, Steven Austad, who is an international expert on ageing, and chairman of the Biology Department at the University of Alabama, says that “Pretty much at every age, women seem to survive better than men.”

He is among a small cadre of researchers who believe that women may hold the key to prolonging life, since there is a great amount of proofs that support this statement, for example, according to Gerontology Research Group, today, 43 people around the world are known to be living past the age of 110. Of these people, 42 are women.

To conclude, I would like to add the we should try to create a society where females and males have the same rights and they are treated the same, without any discrimination against any gender.
