Casual are simply born Casual, they were jeans and t-shirt and they are fine they are normal people, go to parties and listen to many types of songs (nothing dramatic or extreme), tend to built many relations and a large group of friends they fit in the community. Trendies also fit in and have many relation and friends but they have more money and they spent it to wear fashion clothes and go to elite parties, they do fine among Casuals but sometimes they can be considered snobs. As for the Sporties, they are ready to play football and wear football team t-shirt, tennis shoes and always talk about sports and last day games, they are almost Casuals but with a high taste for sports, they do fine with Trendies too, but the two groups aren’t close.
And those three compose almost 70% of the subject’s population, the other minor tribes have their roles to play in the University but they are sure more isolated. Casuals can be the standard but that doesn’t mean it is the correct tribe or behavior, but they are the most common in part by comprehending that, Casuals are political, friends to everybody and enemies to none, respects the differences and let it be!
In the city has more variety of tribes like, hippie, emo, gothic, casual, skater, hardcore punk, geek. Because each person has your own style, depending of the place that they use to attend.
In community of north lake there is alot of tribes; preppy, nerd, skaters, "pião", trendy, casual, etc.
For adolescents the lifestyle is very important. Because theyfind their tribes, the people whom they identify. These are the famous "panelinhas." But when the adolescent grows and matures will think their way of living than in their way of living as. This is a the kink of life style futile. At this stage they prefer to go to partys and try to represent your way of being, 'mark their territory' and show to other people that is better than they think of.
That is, you tell me with whom walks that I'll say who you are
In the world have many differents styles. The most comun styles in Brazil are trendy, hippie, preppy, emo and hip hop. These styles are adopted by teenagers the most, the adults adopt a style named casual.

Trendy people are the most common in my city they use expensive clothes of really famous designers and famous stores like Armani, Gucci, Guess, Colcci, Dolce & Gabanna, Channel, Prada. Trendy Girls are thin and they like their hair really straight, and like to wear jewels and see wich nail is more beatifull. Trendy boys like to wear expensive sneakers, expensive clothes, but they aren't thinner as the trendy's girls. They like to go to night clubs and they reallu like to go to Pier 21, they like to listen more pop music.

We can always see Geeks..They’re very inteligent but they usually dont have a good social life , because most of them are shy.they love being in front of computers,they can do a lot of games and interesting programs.When you talk about Geeks the first thing you remember are the glasses and the normal clothes. The second group are the Emos. No one like them,they’re hated because of their bands and other tribes associate emos like “gays” just because of being emotional like the name EMO says. They use make-up on the face,and they have a strange hair cut.They use to write on their shoes too a unormal thing .Some of them have a lot of piercings.Nowadays , in Brasília Emos have some places for meeting and being together. And a trib that is very comum too are the Hippies, they very peacefull and they don’t worry about clothes and hair cuts .They like instruments like guitars and percussion intruments , that can be artesanal, they like artesanal earings bracelets and etc.
Everyone have a different way of showing your style and things that you like to do , but the most important thing is respecting the others .A problem of tribes , is that noboddy wanna be diferent , so people are affraid of being rejected by them.
Emo is a mist of gothics and punks.They have colorfullhairs and they love to use bands.They listem to Emotional Hardcore, a type of depressive song with emotional lirics, like; Simple Plan, Nx Zero, etc.Nowadays, in Brasília, they're going to Patio Brasil and killing themselves.
Trendy is the style for rich people or people tha want to look like.They uses the most expensive clothes and like the most expensive stores.They like to listem to eletronic music, and usually they're in the best parties.The sometimes can be rude, because they think that they're better than the others.
A very common style is the casual. They don't use the most expensive clothes, but the like to have good things. It's better to have one good thing than a lot of bad things. Usually, they use jeans and t-shirts and tennis shoes. They like to go to every kind of paries and they listen to all types of music. They accept everybody and everykind ok styles.
If you don't ha ve one of this style, don't worry! The most important thing is to be and believe in yourself. Different people and different style, we just have to respect it.
Nowadays, there are so many different people and styles. Here, in Brasília, the most common styles are: trendy, skaters and casual.
Trendy is the high society style. Trendy people are always wearing expensive clothes, designer clothes or brand-name clothes and they are always using a modern hair cut. They are always going shopping or going to parties. Most of them like to listen to pop and electronic music. A trendy person’s friend, most of the times, is another trendy person.
If you want to be radical, you have to be a skater. They’re always using baggy clothes, most of the times they are with a skate in their hands and they have messy hair. They like to listen to rock (like “Charlie Brown jr.”), hip hop and rap. Most of them don’t like to study because they prefer to skate.
The most common style here is the casual people. Most of the times, they are wearing jeans, t-shirts and tennis shoes. They like to listen to all the kinds of music. They like to play sports, to go shopping, to go to parties, resuming they like to do everything.
Everybody have a style but the important thing in our lives is not our style, is the way we act in front of the differences of other people’s style. We have to respect people who are different from us so we can leave in peace.

Emo is a style of people who like to wear colorful hairs and black and white clothes. Emos like to wear bands and put lots of black make up in their eyes. They like melancolic songs that are darivated of the hardcore, that are named emocore. The place that they love in Brasilia is Patio Brasil Shopping.
Hip hop is the style of people who love types of music like rap and hip hop. They use caps and enormous silver necklaces. This style came from the lower classes of NY. They also like baggy pants and t-shirts as the skaters.
The last style is the trendy. Trendy is the style of the persons who like to use the most expensive clothes and who like the most expensive stores. They usually go to shopping malls and nigth clubs.Some of the trendy girls have straight hair and are anorexic to be fashion. They usually listen to funk and eletronic music. In Brasilia trendy persons are found in Pier 21.
Everyone have a different type of style but the most important is the respect bettwen these styles. People are different and all of them have a type of style that could show a little of what they are.
Another group that make success are the "emos". They dress in black, they use black eyeliners too. Normally all of their clothes are black. They don't have a normal emocional state. They cry all the time.
I thing that everyone have to be the way that thinks it's better, without to be scared about what another people are thinking. If everyone had the same sugestions, the world would be boring so, we have to respect all the styles of life.

One of the teen fashion styles is trendy, that is a little limited because of the amount of money that they expense. So, it is represented by persons who are generally blond, buy many stylish and fashionable clothes in stores as Colcci, Loja.com, Armani, like to go to expensive parties, that rich people go and like to listen an eletronic music. With frequency, people of this style worship famous models, actors and singers. About their humour, it is agreeable, but sometimes not.
Nowadays, emo style had been growing in a big porcentage of members, who are adept to this personality.

They buy clothes in M. officer, Forum, Opção and others, jeans is very important, and they have one rule: the most comfortable is the best. They go to shopping malls, to the cinema,sometimes to dance, so simple and fun activities. In this especific style the posibilities of people who they admire is very ample. They listen to all kinds of music, and about others styles, they are the components of styles who most accept the differences, because they are in the middle of all styles.
Inside, everyone is unique, so everybody had to learn to coexist with the differences, because the freedom speech exist. It is good, it will make everybody grow more and more.
The most popular style is casual, people who have casual style wear basic clothes like shirts, sweatshirts, T-shirts and jeans, the most important kind of clothes in this style. They like to buy clothes in stores like M.Officer, Forum and other brand-name stores. They like to go to the movies, the mall and restaurants.

One of the most important things in their style is the designer sunglasses bigger, better. They like to go to night clubs and they like to listen to electronic music.

They listen to music like Jack Johnson, Arctic Monkeys and electronic music. Moreover, they listen to ''MPB'', like Chico Buarque and Caetano Veloso. Sometimes they wear designer clothes too. Nevertheless, they are not like trendy people.
The style of the people in teenage can change teens' minds and, consequently, their future, the university they are going and what is going to be their job. This can be good or not, but style is the biggest characteristic of teenagers.
Emo is one of that styles.They wear black clothes,strange belts and All-Star shoes. They paint their hair in strange colors, like blue, red, yellow.

The last style that I will talk about is the geek style. They are computer experts. They know a lot about tecnology and videogames.Geeks don't care about their appearence, they don't care about their clothes. In general, geeks don't have a good social life, they prefer to use the computer on a Saturday night instead of going out with friends.
In the world,the geeks and emos aren't well seen by the other people, in general.However,the other style is well seen by the younger part of society.

I’m sure that I would go by plane, because it’s a long trip and by plane I would get there faster. I would do anything to go with my friends, because with my friends I have more fun, I’m not so shy and everything gets better.
I would go in the summer therefore I would take just some clothes that I wear here. I would buy most of the clothes there because it is more inexpensive. Before traveling, I would eat a lot of “feijoada” and after I got there, I would shout: “I’m in the United States of America!!!!”
I don’t know how I would spend my days there but in New York I would probably buy clothes, video games, shoes and a lot of other things, but the most important thing that I’d do in NY I’d buy a lot of things in the biggest musical instrument store in the world. It must be perfect and it would be so cool. In Disney I would have fun every day. I would go in every roller coaster in that resort. Probably I would go to a lot of parties there and with my friends these parties would be the best parties. I think that this would be my dream vacation.

If I could have a vacation of my dreams, I would go to New Zealand, because I could go to the beach or to the snow. I would go there in summer, because it's hot and cold at the same time. If I would go for a swim , it would be hot and sunny, but if I would go to snow, would be very cold.To get there, I would go by plane or ship. I would take my family with because I would have more comfort, I could expend more money, and we could be more independent.If I would go to snowing , I would have to take so much clothes, like sweaters, jackets, pants and sneakers. But if I go to the beach, I would take a few T-shirts, some shorts and flip flops. As soon as I got there, I would go to see the snow and the beach at the same time. It must be beaultiful. the places that I would go to would be parties in the city, some beaches and the snow. I would go to ski in the morning because of the sun and in the afternoon I would go to the beaches for a swim. At night I would go visit an other places, like restaurants, parks and parties.

I would fly to Italy, assuming I started my journy on Brazil because any other way would have some complications, but if I were already in Europe I would drive all the way , that's for sure, I could enjoy those marvelous roads. In my little adventure I would like to bring along my brother with me so we could enjoy the land of our ancestors together, he is lots of fun, loves good food, good wine, nice Italian views, nice Italian sports cars and nice Italian women, just like me. Because of my choyce of going in the winter, i would be forced to take clothes for cold weather, but I would take some old simple clothes so that I could visit the countryside of Italy, like going to a farm or a place where they make wine, all like it was made in the midle ages, very cool.
As soon as I get there I would visit Maranello, the home of Ferrari, man that would be the day, amazing for sure, and also enjoy some Italian food made in Italy, ahh, all that pasta, and pizza and lasagne, it makes me hangry. I would like to apreciate a calm afternoon in a house in the mountains with that cold weather and a glass of good wine, and in the complexity of this moment, feel the simplest of all things, feel you are in your home.
Rome is a destination I wouldn't miss in this trip, I admire the roman civilization and need to be at least one time in it's remains, to see what was left of the mighty Coliseum.
Walk trought the wanderful coast of the country and I would spent litlle time not visiting something, only time enough to enjoy Italian restaurants and the kindness of the people.
a) is there anything you read in the "I have already done" section that you didn't answer but now you remembered you have already done?

I have 4 cousins living there , and when I talk with them they say that it's the best place that they have already gone.I'd travel by plane , because its too far , and if I could choose someone to go with me, I'd choose my brother,Gustavo, or a friend , but I think going there with the parents is not to cool.My brother's a very nice person and I like the things that he likes , so I think it would be nice travelling with him.
I think I would spend my time there visiting beautiful places, and snowboarding , Ihave already gone to USA , and I completed my third year of life there , but I was too young and I can't remember anything.I think I'd stay in my uncle's house , it’s better than a hotel where you don't know anybody. It's good to travel somewhere different, to change a little our lifes , this can relax us.
So for me the perfect place to visit is New York.
Tuesday, September 25, 2007
The perfect person that I would take with me is my friend Jessica, because she wants to study fashion design and there is the perfect place to learn more about it. And she is the perfect friend that I would take in this amazing trip. During the flight we would spend the time listening to music, reading, watching movies and talking a lot!
In December the weather there is cold and I would take a lot of coats, pairs of jeans, sneakers, t-shirts, sunglasses, hats, and one empty bag to bring back all the new clothes that I would buy. As soon as we got there we would take a little nap and enjoy the rest of the day.
We would stay in a very luxury hotel. We would do a lot of things, beginning with the most important: shopping! We would spend money with designer's clothes and fragances. After we would visit the most important places like the Champs-Élysées considered, the most beautiful avenue in the world, EuroDisney Resort, make a stop to eat something in the Les Deux Magots. We would visit some historic places like the Notre-Dame cathedral, and visit the most famous museum, the Louvre. At last we would vist the most important place in Paris, the Eiffel Tower. And that's why Paris is one of the perfect places in the world for me.
To get there, I will get a plane, which will get there in 8 hours. I would like to take many good friends with me, because will be funnier. I want to know many people too. This is one reason why I want to go with an excursion. I will take t-shirts, shorts, pants and coats.
I want to go to all parks and parties too. So, my days will be spent at Disney parks and partys at night. Very good, isn’t it?
written by Vítor Moraes
To get there, I would travel by bus or by airplane. I think I would take my friends with me because the vacation with friends would be more exciting and happy. I wouldn’t take my parents with me because they would want to put rules in my dream vacation I wouldn’t want rules, I just would want fun!
Porto Seguro is a city of beach, therefore, is hot all year. I would take just "summer clothes" like shorts, t-shirts, slippers, sneakers and some jeans to hang out at night. As soon as I got there, I would go to the beach. All teenagers would go in the evenings and in the afternoons.
The places I would go to would be the beaches and the bars. Drinking in the beach with friends might be very good. I would spend my mornings and afternoons in the beach with my friends but in the evening I would go to the concerts. If I had the chance to get to Porto Seguro this way, would be very fun!
written by Pedro
I would get there by plane or maybe by ship, in my opinion go by ship is more exciting, but the plane is much faster. I would prefer to go with my friends, but go with my family would be very good too.
In the summer Hawaii is very hot, so I would use tropical clothes like T-shirts and obviously bermuda of flowers. As soon as I got there, I would take a surfboard and go to the beach.
I wouldn’t stay at home because in Hawaii are lots of things to do, in the morning and in the afternoon I would go to the beaches and take a walk at cities that I would visit. At night I would go to night clubs.
In conclusion, I think Hawaii is one perfect place to spend your dream vacation because now a days everybody suffers one pressure, consequently we some times get stressed, so Hawaii would be the right place to relax and have a lot of fun.
written by Yuri
I would get there by plane and I would travel with my friends, because it’s funiest then with mother or father.
I think that I would take some short’s and summer clothes because it’s hot in Hawaii. I got there, I would go to the beach because everyone said the beach is perfect!
The places that I would go it’s restaurant’s for eat exotic’s food, I would go to shop’s and all the night I would go out with my friends!!

One day, if I could in the next year, I would do my dream vacation. I think this travel would be to Australia, there is located somewhere in Oceania, between The Pacific and Indian Oceans, and I would go in the summer, to spend my time there doing the best I could do, because when is cold, the weather could curb mine activities there. A year ago, many friends asked me why, and I made the same question to myself. So I talked with an Australian and I found many answers to my question. First, This place is exotic, fascinating and offers attractive tourism. Second, Australians are very friendly and funny, they aren't exclude you only because you aren't from the same nationality. Third, this travel would be good to broaden my experience of the world.
Then, for this travel would be better, I would take Julia with me, because when we were children, we said that in the future we would travel together to Australia and would practice jet skiing. We found many things about Australia on the internet, one of them is a benefit that the Australian Government provides: to get there we would go by a plane, but inside the country it is easy to get where you want by car. But we couldn’t forget that Australia is the 6th biggest country in the world in size,with 7.686.850 of square kilometers, so it would be better go by plane for some distant cities.
In my opinion, when I would arrive in this magical place I would be very exciting, and the first thing I would do there is swim in the sea. Certainly, to do many activities I could be very comfortable, so I would take bikinis, shorts, hot t-shirts with me, only clothes I could wear, to have more space to bring many presents for my friends and my family.
Accommodation is not a problem, justified by a variety of places to stay and prices to pay for it. Before, I would prepare all my routine and where I would stay, to couldn’t lose time there and any money. There are many different and extraordinary things to do there, don't matter that it is in the morning,afternoon, or at nigth, for example: radical sports, visit historical places, go to the beaches, go to the cinema, observe the nature, practice other languages and others.This travel with certainly would be my dream vacation, I would be in the paradise, so it would be perfect.

I would get there by plane because it’s more practical. It would take many hours by plane, but I don’t really care because I would be with my big friend Marina. She is really funny and we would gossip all the way. Marina is a good company for me because we have many things in common and we always enjoy ourselves shopping. I have already traveled with her and it was really great.
I’d take all my clothes: a lot of coats, some pairs of jeans, dresses, a lot of t-shirts and shorts. I’d take as many shoes as I could because I just love them and a pair of sneakers to walk around the city.
As soon as I got there, I would visit the museums and the turistic places of the city, like The Big Bang, The Parliament, The Brittish Museum, The London Eye, The Tower Bridge, St. James Palace and many other places. I have a burning desire to take the two-floor bus, that is called Routemaster. I would watch the Philharmonic Orchestra of London and go to the theater because I love art. In the evening, I would go to bars, dancing clubs and restaurants where I could meet new people and try different kinds of food and drink. Mary and I would buy everything that we could until we had no money. By the way, what is a travel without shopping?

If I could have the vacation of my dreams would be for South Africa, I would like to see the animals in the savanas in their natural habitat. Seing the zebras, giraffes, sharks always call my attention (since I was a little girl and this make a lot of people susprised.) I think the spring would be the best season for visit South Africa because isn't so hot and isn't so cold, and the animals are feeling better so you can see them acting normally and I feel more comfortable for not use that big clothes.
I would like to go by plane because it is faster, safer and comfortable, but I'm not a big fan of planes. I would go with my father because he's my partnet in different and sometimes crazy adventures, he would say ''YES'' in the moment because South Africa is his dream vacation too, but my mother HATE the idea.
I would take summer clothes and pants, hats, t-shirts and coats too because in savanas probally there are a LOT of mosquitos and the tourist guide says that this kind of clothes are better to walk in the savanas. When I arrived there there I would go sea diving with sharks. After I would check savanas or something in contact with the nature also I would look for native people to really make contact with african reality for in the near futere DO something for them, I hope that they speak english
I would spend at least 2 weeks, South Africa is a country that different people are mixed so I see a lot of contrast and probally this will call my atenttion. One of the cities that I will definetly visit is one of the 3 capitals Cable City there is the ''tourist'' city in South Africa there the nights are more ''intense'' and there are some museums and reallu beatiful beaches that I could visit too...
