Astana is a place of big opportunities. Having moved here I understood how much I missed in Kokshetau. But working at school I realized that young people do not appreciate what they have. I suggested the 9th-graders visiting the USA Embassy, the American corner or something like that and they refused. On the one hand, I understand that they are overloaded with their studies. On the other hand, the life is so short! I watched "the Dead Poets Society" and the motto of the boys there was "carpe diem" which means "Seize the day!". I agree with the saying because however busy you are, you must find some time to develop yourself beside doing your homework and tidyong your room. You should go to the theatre, to the cinema, and so on, and so forth. Unfortunately, I do not know Astana very well and do not go outside often because I have much work to do. But I try to go to the USA Embassy and the American corner once a week and I was at the theatre after K. Bayseitova sveral times.
On Tuesday I went to the Embassy and we discussed there love and marriage. It is becoming a great problem nowadays. We listened to frank Sinatra's song where it is said that love and marriage goes together like a horse and a cariiage. Nowadays it is not always like this. more and nore people marry without loving each other. they marry not a person but the money. It is one of the problems. The second problem, to my mind, is that people are to absorbed with their work that they do not have time to date. I often hear people saying that they have to earn a flat, a car, get a well-paid job and only after that they can get married. Of course it is a very sensible way of approaching a amrriage but won't we miss something very important while chasing after material values???
On Thursday I visited a concert of Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs. I came home at 10 p.m. and had to sit up till 2. a.m. because I had to plan my lessons but I do not regret it. It was amazing! They "fired' the audienсу! At first we enjoyed classic jazz, then we danced and shouted and screamed while they were playing rock, hip-hop and jazz mixed together. It was really amazing to listen to this beautiful music in live!
Today I wrote too much in my post)) Just have so much to talk about!
