So last Term I had problem’s with my homework the main reason was because I wasn’t pushing myself to do my homework because I thought it was too boring. I was good at doing my work in class and I turned in most of my stuff, but I wasn’t really trying when I would do my homework which is bad. So this term I’m going to try harder with my homework I’m going to do my homework and not leave it off to the side like I did last term which usually resulted into it being late which is bad.
So how do I feel about To Kill a Mockingbird. I liked the book I really did but this book is one of those books that I wouldn’t really read on my free time. This book is more like if I read it in class I would like it. I felt like the book tried to make you sad because of all the things that it threw at you. This book had a lot of good parts to it but at the same time it had parts that I started to fall asleep at which is not that good, but if I were to rate this book I would give it a 7/10.
In the book To Kill a Mockingbird, Miss Maudie says, “We’re making a step, it’s just a baby step, but it’s a step.” Miss Maudie is basically saying that they’re making very little progress but it’s at least progress. I feel like how this can affect a reader is by helping them realize that even if you do the littlest thing it’s still helpful. I feel like what this says to everyday life is that if you’re at work or at school or basically doing anything that you do there is helpful for someone or even yourself. The reason I picked this quote is because this actually helps me a lot like whenever I play a game I see something and I decide to ignore it or not go for it as soon as I see it and that effects my team because that guy that I saw running probably is killing my teammate because I decided to ignore him. And if I shot the guy that little step could have saved my teammate. I know I talk about video games to much. 🙂
One day Chuck went to Waizuwan for Authority on Courage and Integrity. “Hey Waizuwan I’m having a really hard time facing really tough decisions that will require Courage and Integrity.” “To be courageous you first need to know that your no going to get any reward for doing what you’ve done you must be able to step up and do the right thing.” Hmm ok but I’m having problems being courageous.” ” To be courageous you first need to know that you might not get any reward for doing what you’ve done you must be able to step up and do the right thing without any thoughts. You’re just saying the same thing Ima outa here.
In the book To Kill a Mockingbird Jem and Scout go out to town to find Atticus when they get there they see Atticus is talking to a group of men. Later on Scout jumps to to surprise Atticus but when she jumped in she didn’t know anyone in the group except Walter Cunningham Scout starts to talk to them he doesn’t answer then after a while he says I say hi for ya and then they left. The next morning Atticus says that Mr. Cunningham is basically a good person he just has his blind spots. I don’t defend the reasoning because if he was a good man he wouldn’t go and try to kill someone. And when Atticus says he just has his blind spots I feel like trying to kill a man wouldn’t count against a blind spot.
Real Courage what is real courage. I think courage is not you stepping up well it kind of is but it’s not just stepping up and almost doing something stupid. I think courage is doing what has to be done but to be careful at the same time. You don’t have to be strong to fight something to be courageous. You just need to do what’s right. Say you see a bully are you going to step up to him and fight him,tell a teacher, or be like nah I’m not up for dis today Ima go get a pop tart. The last one wasn’t courageous of course, but the first option or the second option in my opinion is considered courageous.
So in To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus tells Scout to climb into another person’s skin? What does that mean well if anyone has ever told you that it means they want you to go through what there going through before you judge them or bully them because there weird or something. Say you were the best gamer in the school but when you when to school your not the person you are online #me. Other people will probably think your weird or something but once they get to know that your the best gamer in the school you’ll seam really cool to them.
Our beliefs are very important because without beliefs then you probably wouldn’t do anything, like for an example say your at home and your hungry and you want pizza, but then you say to your self oh wait it’s going to take way to long so then you don’t go get pizza. I know that wasn’t anything big so let me do something bigger. Say you aren’t feeling to good and your girlfriend or wife tells you that you should probably go to the doctor but then you say oh no it’s fine, and then in a couple of day you, Cheeseburger Man Died Jan,25 1937. Because you believed you were ok it resulted in a bad action. But if you did go to the doctors, Cheeseburger Man Died Dec,31 2011. That was a weird way to describe it but :).
So with the question are you proud of your work you’ve done this year I would say I don’t know I like some of the work I do, but somethings I just don’t like. The reasons why is because some work I don’t like doing so I don’t do my best, but when I get an assignment I like I try my hardest to do my best just because I enjoy doing it. My reading isn’t that good I use all of the 15 min I get and I only really read like 4 pages when other people read like 10 or more. One of the goals I’ve set is to wake up at the right time and I did fix it. How I fixed it is by changing my sleeping schedule. 🙂
For my one percent gain I feel like I need to improve on waking up on time. Usually almost everyday I wake up at 7 something, and I know your probably like,”That’s a normal schedule.” But for me I like to watch youtube or something for about 30 min to an hour before going to school just to wake me up for school. I feel like if I want to improve when I wake up I need to make my alarm LOUDER or, sometimes I wake up but then fall asleep so I also need to improve on that to. I feel like if I start doing this I wake up a lot more,and maybe sometimes I won’t even need alarm and I’ll feel charged up for the day.
