How I Survive Hard Things

How do I survive hard things? Well, I’ve been through a lot and I still am, but unfortunately a lot of it is personal. One’s I am comfortable with sharing, I didn’t do anything to make myself better really. But, here’s some things I do is these, usually I sit in my room and relax. I put on calming music or background rain, if it’s night I turn on my fairy lights and color in some of my books that I have a million of. Sometimes I’ll draw, but that makes me angry sometimes. Or I’ll just relax on my bed, maybe sleep.  It’s hard but I get through it, I don’t really talk to people about it though. Related image

Why Read Sad Books?

Sometimes, reading a sad book could be good for you. Reading a sad book could maybe give you an inspiration to do something based on the book, maybe inspire you to be a better person. Or it could show you some hard struggles and such that people have to go through either from day to day life, or just slowly throughout it. You could look at things differently, in the world or look at people differently. Focusing on happy books, we don’t exactly see what’s wrong and what can happen to others. We focus and see what coolness happens to the person in happy books, but never see anything that’s really important.

The Book Thief Film Review

In the movie, it did well in portraying some of the characters, and showing the places and things. Each the characters mostly followed along with their book personalities, though there were some things off. But it did also tell of some of the places nicely like the mayors house. The movie poorly showed important things that were a lot more obvious in the book. The movie never showed too much detail on Hans’s leg or anyone with him. The movie did follow along with the book sort of though. It did show the parade, but it wasn’t who we thought was in it. One was that the movie was not like the book was, well, there’s a lot but one it never showed Liesal having her nightmares at the beginning. Also, the pilot crashing and the teddy bear? Yeah no never happened. Back to the parade as well, it was different on what actually happened. Plus, it never even showed her actually steal a lot of books with Rudy, it was all more secretive. The movie was like the book though because what happened to her brother. Also, how Hans played the accordion, and Max showing up as well. The writing in the basement, Rudy’s race, and a lot of things.

Say what #2.1-Placate

Book: Dead Calm. Annelise Ryan. 66.

In Their Words:

  1. make (someone) less angry or hostile.
    My words: Calm someone down, less angry.
