My Compositions My compositions About myself

It is kind of difficult to talk about myself, but I can mention that I like lots of things; for example, I would like to mention that I love teaching. I think that it is the most beautiful thing I can do to help others and that’s why I’m here, to be a better person, to learn as much as I can, to teach what I know so far. Another activity I love is to ride motorcycles; I think it is one of the most interesting sports I practice; and also I enjoy spending time with my kids, playing with them. To share what I do with others, I think it is good for me because I can have the satisfaction that someone else is learning the same way that I am. I can say that if we contribute with the future of this country, the best way to do it is by teaching others how to be the best, how to be competitive for life, how to grow up and do something good for this country. This is the reason why I’m trying to do my best in order to acquire all the necessary knowledge to be one of the best teachers, not around the world, but at least in this country. I just want to try harder to get my degree and work by doing what I love: teaching, some people say that it is the worst thing they can do and they don’t want to, but I want to do it, and I will continue doing it because I love challenges. UTEC - Alumni UTEC’S vision establishes that people of all different sectors and levels of the society can be accepted and integrated to this university, therefore, there are different kinds of students and this become a challenge for the professors and also for the students because it is not easy to manage the variety of personalities, economical status, ages, familiar situation, and so forth. - STAFF In this university we have excellent and bad professors. The problem is that some of them do not teach as well as they should or could. Regarding janitors, they do not clean the bathrooms as would be expected and at appropriate intervals. That becomes a

- CAMPUS Before I started studying in this university, my expectations we different as I have faced in here because all the buildings are completely separated from each other. It is quite difficult because sometime we have classes in one building that is too far away to reach on time the consecutive class. About the appearance they have, it is sometimes awkward due the reduced space featured everywhere you look. It is also important point out that the didactic tools used to teach in this institution are not good enough or are always malfunctioning. - ACADEMY The institution can be easily distinguished from the others, thanks to the teacher’s quality and the way they conduct their classes. Another aspect to highlight, for better or worse is the monthly scheduled examinations that seem to be prepared to feed the institution’s hunger for money. Besides all those probably negative features, we have to recognize that they have libraries with up-to-the-day books and resources that are an extra point that to my point of view provides a plus that can fade the bad aspects previously mentioned before. The institutional values of UTEC In this university, we have some different values for us to be aware of what is the best way to see our institution. For example, we can mention the “Permanent Innovation” which means what is the way for us to be better in the future and for our society, but it also mentions the creation of new products to innovate the education in our country. The “Institutional Leadership” is to be a better professional in order to put in practice this value because as we know, it is really important since this society needs somebody to show an alternative to have more opportunities to succeed in our society.

About the “Integrity”, we can mention all the options we should have in our institution. Therefore, there are some limitations because sometimes for any circumstance or another, we face some kind of problems in any process in the institution but no only in our society. Indeed, we can get a better service in here by creating some other ways to know a little bit more about our university. Is UTEC a better option to study? Tecnologica University was founded in 1981, starting working in one of the famous building in San Salvador down town; the famous “Chahin” building was destroyed in 1986 by an earthquake and it was the opportunity to start building a new one(nowadays Simon Bolivar building). What are the advantages in this university? We, as students, can have the option to study here with some different advantages or facilities like for example: Flexible schedules, different majors, the location, and one of the most important things is the access to many places in which we, as students, can get copies, access to internet service, variety of food, etc. Tecnologica University is located downtown, San Salvador with so many buildings with different specialties. It offers many options with all the majors depending on what the students are looking for. However, we can mention also the problem to move from one building to another and also the facilities. For example: The good service of transportation because, almost all the different routes from different parts of San Salvador can get you here. Now the question is: Is UTEC a good option to study? If you work, you can study at night and if you don’t, you can do it either on morning or at night. The schedule flexibility is a great advantage on this university, because the student can work and study at the same time.

What does “Honesty” mean for us? One of the most beautiful words and also one of the most positive words in our world is honesty; but how to find someone honest in our lives? How to know if people around us are honest people? Firstofall, we have to realize what we are, we need to know if in fact we are honest with ourselves and also with the other people. Honesty is like the song says “just a lonely word” but what does honesty mean for us? It can be hard to believe that sometimes honesty is the most important part in our lives. Therefore, sometimes is like if we would like to find a unicorn, as easy as that. In other words, it can be difficult for us to find someone honest and there can be more possibilities to have face to face a beautiful unicorn. For that reason, the question is still open: What does “Honesty” mean for us? “Lust” One of the famous 7 capital sins is “Lust”. There are so many people that think all the capital sins are horrible, the problem is that there are some others that maybe can feel all of them. There was a time, and it happened to me, I was trying to catch a girl’s attention, but the feeling was so strong that I started needing to see her everyday, not only for talking to her but also to try again and again to convince her to be my girlfriend. Nevertheless, there was a problem because there was another guy trying to do the same, and the competition was a little bit more interesting. The problem was that she felt something special for me, but also she wanted to have sex with me; the funniest thing was that she asked me first if I want to do it and then I said: “Yes!” I can’t say anything else, I just can say that it was the best week I ever had in my entire life; when I say the best, I mean the wild week

with a lady that I though was different. In other words, the hunter became the pray.

“Vanity” Talking about the capital sins, “Vanity” is one of the most dangerous one, because in this world, there are a lot of people that thing they are more that others. The problem with people is that they can attempt to kill someone in order to get what they want. Therefore, vanity can change so many people in a good or in a bad way because we can realize what the behavior of some people is and try to avoid them. In other words, vanity can make you pretend to be someone that you are not even close to be.

My high school memories My good memories in high school came to my mind and made me feel so sad because I’m not there anymore. However, I can remember a lot of things that I did whit my friends, my classmates; there are many things that will never come back but, there are lots of new things that I enjoy today and I will remember tomorrow. Nowadays, I ask to myself: “Is there any possibility to repeat all the good moments as we did it in the past? No way, it is impossible but we can do it in the present with our new memories or our new good moments.

How was a special day when I used to work in a call center? When you have a job li a customer service representative in a call center specialized in telecommunications, you realize that a special day for an agent is when you arrive at 5:00 a.m. logged in and sit down in your chair waiting for the calls coming but those calls never come because the system broke down, so you decide to prepare a cup of coffee, get some bread and enjoy you shift and wait for the time to go home. That’s a special day at work when you work in a call center.

The economical problem in El Salvador Talking about economy, we can mention the situation that some families around the country are living regarding the economical situation that is affecting us. However, the government doesn’t do anything to set up some strategies or some solutions to solve these problems. But, how to manage this situation? How can we have a better life in a country that doesn’t have any opportunity to grow up? Well, the answer is clear; we don’t have any solution because there are not people who deal with it to solve this situation because nobody cares. The main problem is that this problem is a fact not a supposition.

“The most beautiful moment in my life.” I can still remember that day; it was on April the 4th 2003, when my first baby came to this world. It was so exiting because he was my illusion and I was really waiting for him. However, it was one of the most awkward moments because when my ex-wife started to pain, we went to the hospital and the doctor told her that it wasn’t the time yet. In deed, we went home and waited a little bit more for my baby to arrive in our lives. The problem was when she started feeling it again, I ran to get a cab and go back to the hospital, we faced a big mess in all the ways to San Salvador (I used to live in Soyapango), and then she started crying and moaning once again; I was so worried about the situation but the taxi guy was so smart and found a way to get to the hospital. As soon as we arrived there, the people at the hospital were so worried because the baby was almost about to bear. Fifteen minutes later, I was informed that my baby was born so healthy and cute that my heart started beating so fast because of the emotion. Therefore, I had to wait a couple of hours to see him but I can assure you that there is no other moment in life than that one. I can still remember the first moment that I saw my beautiful baby boy. Now, he is 10 years old, but I can remember when I got him in my arms for the very first time.

“LOVE” What is love? Is it just a feeling? Is it just an emotion? What exactly is love? There are so many ways to call it, but there is no answer for us to know about what LOVE is. What I can mention is that without love, we could be different, because among all the definitions that we could have about this, it always will be a good feeling. I just can say that Love is all if you make a comparison, talking about a mother and the huge love that she feels for her kids, the love that we feel for somebody else, the love what we have for our Lord. That’s why I mention that there are so many ways to show some love and there are a lot of people that don’t do it. Nevertheless, I can mention also how it affects our lives. Why? Because we as human beings think, differently about it and it is because as good as it can be, as fast as it can break your heart.

“HATE” When we mention thins strong word, is when we feel some type of rejection about something or someone. The problem with this is that sometimes it can hurt somebody in specific. Therefore, it becomes bigger and bigger everyday and you don’t care about what that other person may think or what it could happen if you hurt anyone. What you care about is what you feel or what you think. Hate is one of the most powerful words in the world and it also can destroy so many lives.

Gavials Gavials are specie of crocodile and unique specie from the Gavialis gender. It is characterized for its big mouth long and thin. It also has a special diet based on fish because it can’t hunt big mammals; its mouth could be broken if it is under pressure. It lives in the swamp areas in India and can have up to 6 meters length. It also spends the most of the time inside the water instead of the other species. However, this animal is in critical danger of extinction; Scientifics say that there are around 200 Gavials around the world. It is because the people who live in those places are fishing in excessive and because the Gavials diet is fish, they don’t have enough food to survive.

Cryonics Cryonics is the First album of the screamo band, Hot Cross and it was presented on May 20, 2003. But it is not the meaning of cryonics. The stated rationale for cryonics is that people who are considered dead by current legal or medical definitions may not necessarily be dead according to the more stringent information-theoretic definition of death. It is proposed that cryopreserved people might someday be recovered by using highly advanced technology. In the United States, cryonics can only be legally performed on humans after they have been pronounced legally dead as otherwise it would be considered murder or assisted suicide. Therefore, most proponents of cryonics see it as an intervention with prospects for success that vary widely depending on circumstances.

Pimsleur Approach Best known as the Pimsleur Language Learning System; it is an audio-based language acquisition method developed by Paul Pimsleur that stresses active participation over rote memorization. The listener repeats words and phrases given by native speakers and they can construct new phrases by inference. As new phrases are introduced, the listener is prompted to recall older phrases. The prompts for any given phrase are gradually spaced out in ever-increasing intervals. He has created some different courses such as Greek, French, and Spanish while he was teaching at the University of California in L.A. The courses are made up of 30-minute daily sessions and shorter reading lessons.

Marriage What is marriage? Some people think that marriage is the best ways to show how much do you love to someone, some others think that marriage is not good and they don’t want to get married or they are afraid to do it. Marriage for me is a special act of love that is made up only if you are sure that it is your truly love in front of you, not only because it is for life but also for the eternity; that’s the way some people think. Therefore, some people think that marriage is just an excuse to try to be happy but why to get married if you can be happy just by being together with your soul mate. The reason why is because in our culture, people think that if you are not married and are living together, you are sinners. I did once, and to be honest I don’t want to do it again because I had a really bad experience. Marriage is a big responsibility and it is divided for 2 people not just for one. Indeed, the couple has to think as one, take decisions as one and the most important thing, to understand each other; but if it is impossible for the 2 of them, you don’t even think in get married, stay free and enjoy life because when that day arrives, everything will change.

My imaginary friend As I know so far, I have never had an imaginary friend but, what cool can it be? Well, I think that it could be great because there is sometimes in which we as human beings feel lonely. In deed, we need something or someone who can share the adventures, someone to listen to you or someone who understand you. That sounds great because you can have it in the way you want and how do you want it. Therefore, some people think that you are crazy or something like that, but what the hell, you are happy with it so just enjoy the moment and let them talk whatever they want to talk. Thus, an imaginary friend. What for? Well, to be happy, to share with someone, to play around, etc.
