NOTA: It's the last week to donate. Please help us! Ziggurat se unirá a Magic Line este año, como hicimos en 2017. Magic Line es un evento de recaudación de fondos organizado por el conocido hospital Sant Joan de Déu, que trabaja para ayudar a las personas más vulnerables. Podéis leer más sobre el proyecto en su sitio web: http://www.magiclinesjd.org/es/que_es_la_magic_line.

¿Como podéis ayudar? Ziggurat tiene el objetivo de duplicar nuestro objetivo del 2017, que fue de 1.000€ (y terminamos recaudando 1.124€). Este año queremos recaudar al menos 2000€ antes del día 24 de febrero. Por favor, ¿podríais donar un euro o dos (o cinco) a través de la página de Ziggurat en el sitio web de Magic Line: http://www.magiclinesjd.org/es/donar/31?  Todo el dinero que donamos va directamente al hospital.

Si cada uno de los miles de suscriptores de Daily Vitamin diera solo uno o dos euros a la causa, ¡sería increíble! Estaríamos ayudando a muchas familias y niños que necesitan nuestra ayuda.

¡Muchas gracias por vuestro tiempo y colaboración!

PHRASAL VERBS FOR ROMANCE (SETTLE DOWN)

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Today is the fourth day of our Phrasal-Verbs related-to-romance week.

Today we are looking at the phrasal verb TO SETTLE DOWN

Definition: To be in an exclusive, long-term relationship; to stop dating other people. Usually this is for serious relationships, and may even include marriage or the couple living together.

Example 1: I was tired of dating. I wanted to settle down. I'm so thankful I met Rob when I did. 

Example 2: I know he loves me, but he said he's not ready to settle down. I don't know what to do. 

Example 3: I thought I wanted to settle down, but after a year of living with Jack... I’m bored. Sometimes I think about being single again. 

This verb is INTRANSITIVE. However, you can also make it TRANSITIVE if you say SETTLE DOWN WITH SOMEONE. 

Example 4: He settled down with Mary after years of dating different women. 

Whether you are single or in a relationship, I hope that you enjoy celebrating the idea of love today. Happy Valentine's Day!
