I think he’s trying to tell Romeo that even though he’s like in love with Juliet, don’t be too clingy or something like that. I think Romeo is just going to ignore this advice and still keep doing what he’s been doing. I don’t think they are moderate because they’ve only been talking for like 2 days and they are already getting married. I don’t think they’re going to change, I think they are eventually going to get bored of each other and like leave for someone else. I think they are going to have to stop talking about how much they love each other and talk about other things instead.
I hate this one teacher that teaches biology. There’s 2 different ones at this school and that one that I have has hair and that’s the one I hate. He’s always giving us long assignments and tests. The tests are really confusing and hard to understand and he barely even teaches about the stuff. He just tells us to always read our book if we don’t understand it and he barely even actually teaches in his class he just hands us an assignment and tells us the answers are in the book and most of the time you can barely find them.
I don’t think schools should just stop teaching Shakespeare but I do think that there should be less of it because of how old it is. I think schools teach way more about Shakespeare than they need to. Shakespeare has been taught for so long now and it’s really old so there is probably some other writers that aren’t as old and maybe even better than him that schools could be teaching instead of just teaching schools about Shakespeare. I think Shakespeare is still important just not as important and there’s probably something else schools could teach instead of mainly focusing on Shakespeare.
I’ve learned more about how open people actually are when you are actually talking to different people one on one and face to face. I have also learned about how much more information they are willing to give while you and the person you are talking to are talking. It’s better to sit down and have a full conversation with the person in real life than do it through something like your phone or an email. I don’t know a lot of things about most kids here at PGJR. I know quite a few people here but I never really talked to them each individually.
I wanted to be able to write essays a lot better than I could before. I think I’ve gotten better at it but I’m still not that good at writing them, The thing that I struggled with most was the ROAM and Predict thing. It took me forever and I didn’t really understand the point of it. Something I want to accomplish before the year is up is being able to read a book and not get bored of it really fast. I’ve only read 1 book on my own and the only other one besides that is To Kill A Mockingbird. I get bored of books fast so I don’t read a lot.
I think that the book started off really boring ,but the more we kept reading it and the more things that happened throughout the whole book made it a little better and more enjoyable in my opinion. The book is mainly about Tom Robinson and his allegations and Atticus defending him. That was the main point and there is a lot of other unnecessary stuff in there. I think the book kind of lives up to its reputation because there is some good parts, but most of it wasn’t needed and just extra stuff. I liked some parts of some parts about it like where they were in court and no one knew what the next person was going to say, but the parts I didn’t like were all the extra unnecessary stuff like Scout performing in a ham costume.
I think the film adaptation to the book was really accurate and seemed almost exactly like the book. It followed along well with the book and left out barely anything in it. It strengthened it by us being able to actually see what was happening instead of just picturing it in our heads. I couldn’t really find anything that was left out that was really important in the movie so I think it hit most of the main points pretty good.
“If a man like Atticus Finch wants to butt his head against a stone wall it’s his head”. I think this means like whatever your actions are, the outcome of it will always be because of you. I think that this quote is meaningful because it’s your decisions that cause things to happen. Miss Rachel said that to Dill and Dill told to them. I think she said that because Atticus knows what will happen after he does this, but he does it anyways and she’s saying that whatever happens to him will be because of him. I picked it because I agree with this quote.
Bob had to make a tough decision. His girlfriend was drowning in a swimming pool, but his best friend that he’s been friends with for almost his entire life is being held at gun point right now and he can only save one of them. I’ve been friends with him for so many years but that’s my girlfriend and I doubt I’ll ever get another one. I mean I guess I’ll just save my best friend because he won’t leave like most girls will. I grabbed the gun out of that guys hand and pointed it at him and said let go if Jimmy. Then he did and ran away. My girlfriend swam up from the pool and said this was just a test to see what you’d do and the she broke up with me because I didn’t save her.
I think this definition is good but I don’t think that this is what courage is fully about. I think that what he says makes sense and can definitely fit in as a part of courage but I wouldn’t use just that phrase to define courage. I think courage is when there is something that you don’t want to do or doing something that scares you but you do it anyways because the outcome is good and so you can get over your fear of that thing that you were too scared to do before. Atticus’ definition of courage makes sense and it is good, but it’s not entirely the definition of courage, in my opinion.
I think it’s good that he is at least trying instead of doing nothing. I think it is worth it even though you know you’re going to lose because it let’s people know you care and in the end you will probably feel better about yourself. I think he should sacrifice as much as he wants because it is you that is going to be affected by this in some sort of way. Even though some people are going to give them a hard time, I think he should still do it because it shows that he doesn’t care about what others think.
