Love Moderately

Image result for love

In act two, scene six of Romeo and Juliet, before Friar Lawerence marries Juliet and Romeo, he gives them advice of how they should love each other. What do I think about love moderately with Romeo and Juliet? I think their getting married way to fast. They claim that it was love at first site, not love can’t happen that fast. You need to slow down and think of what you are doing. Friar Lawrence is trying to tell Romeo and Juliet that you shouldn’t get married right as you meet, you need to get to know each other before you get married.

Hatred

Related image

Someone that I dislike strongly is a boy in my ward. He is always teasing me and taking my phone and teasing me about other stuff. I’ve known him ever since I was five I think, but ever since then his been really teasing me and just being annoying. It’s really starting to bother me. But what I am trying to do is to just ignore it or just not worry about it. I’ve been trying this ever since 7th grade and it’s been working some what. It does get worse and worse sometimes, but it has getting better as we get older.

Should Schools Still Teach Shakespeare?

Image result

Should schools still teach Shakepeare? I think yes, because even though its so hard to understand you can still learn something from his work. Like Romeo and Juliet, it’s one the most popular plays around the world. I can’t remember who said this, but a man said that when he was younger he apsolutly hated Shakespeare! But as he got older, he started to understand the meanings and the words he used. And somehow fell in love with Shakespeare. Shakespeare is so difficult and hard to understand, but I still think that schools should still teach Shakespeare to learn what he thought of and to learn his writings.

What I Don’t Know About My Fellow Students

 

Image result for kindness

I’ve learned a lot from doing the Humans of PGJH project in english. I’ve learned that students have different stories or memories that we don’t know about. When I was doing my project, I learned something about someone that I didn’t know before. And it was really interesting because when he told me about his strongest memory, because that’s one of the questions I asked him, I was not expecting that story. It was interesting to learn something about a student that you don’t really know. Get to know the students or people around you. If you ask questions or say something nice to them, it can show that you care and want to be friends with them. That’s how I got all my friends, by asking questions and being kind to them.

Work Will Work When Wishy Washy Wishing Will Not

Image result for accomplish

I’ve been pretty happy with my grades this year in English. Every term I ended with an A- and I’m going to try and keep it that way for the rest of the school year. What I wanted to accomplish this year is to get better at reading more books and to understand the materials we use in English. And I kind of accomplished them because I’m still learning and understanding the materials and I’m doing better at reading. What I’ve done well this year is getting everything done on time and make sure that they are perfectly perfect. And I’ve also done well is participating in class discussions. What I struggled with this year is getting the stuff I needed done at this certain time and it just put so much stress on me, but I have learned to control that stress. My goal is to learn the stuff that could be really hard and to be better at English. I’m going to accomplish my goal by doing what I need to do and concentrat.

Good Stuff

I decided to choose this quote to talk about: “We’re making a step.” It’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step”. I can’t remember who said these because I don’t own the book, but what I think is most meaningful about this is it’s talking about that we should be taking baby steps or just steps at a time. Sometimes we push a little too hard and we just need to take it step by step and take it nice and steady. But what I think is most powerful from this quote is that we are making steps in our lives that lead us somewhere in our future. Why I picked this quote is because it just sticks out to me. Because sometimes I want to skip some “steps”, but I learned, if I try and skip some “steps” that it can lead somewhere I don’t want to go. This is probably my favorite quote in the book of “To Kill a Mockingbird”.

What Makes a Person Great?

Image result for qualities

What attributes and qualities do you think a great person ought to have? I think a great person should have is faith in themselves, start again when you fall down, virtue, courage, and bravery. Like it says in the picture, “Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees the others.” If a great person has courage, they can accomplish anything in their life. Courage I think is the most important quality that a great person should have because if you don’t have courage, what can you accomplish? You can still accomplish things, but it will be harder without courage. Always have courage in yourselve.

To Kill a Mockingbird Review

I don’t know really know much that would leave spoilers for you. The book is about two kids, Jem and Scout, who are trying get “Boo” Radley out of the house to see what he looks like and are also scared of him too. It starts with Scout, because she is the narrator of the book, talking about who everyone is and what they do in the town of Maycomb, and just how there lives went. What I like about this book is how much detail she gives in each chapter. She says what people say, word for word, and describes many different things that go on around the same time. I would recommend this book to those who like a lot of details and just love to read.

Now the film.What I thing they did well in the film is they hit the main points in the book like the trail, meeting Dill during the summer, going into the Radley’s yard and finding his pants folded, etc. My favorite part of the film is when the trail comes along. They show what was told in the book and it was just so interesting to watch then reading it. The scenes that were most powerful to me is the trail because you learn so much about each character and it just tells us so much about some character. I would recommend this film to those who like black and white films, suspense, and old films because I think this is an old film.

An Authority on Courage – Wonder Woman

Image result for wonder woman

Courage is a tough thing. I had to leave my home to go and help people from a great war. When I was a little girl, my mother told me on how we came to be. Zeus created us to protect people of the world. When I went to go fight for people that couldn’t, I had to have courage that I could stop this war from destoring the world. I thought this had to do with the god of war, Aris. I had to have courage because I was the only one that could stop him. If you have in yourself, you can defeat anything.

Real Courage

Image result for courage

The actual defintion is courage is the ability to do something that frightens one. But my definiton of courage is do something you are afraid off and over come it. In chapter 11 of “To Kill a Mockingbird”, Attiucs tells Jem: “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.” What I think about this definition of courage is his trying to tell him that you don’t always win, but sometimes you do and you have to except it.
