Halloweenariffic

On Monday night I went to a haunted house. I wasn’t very scared until I had to wait in line for a long time. We had to wait in a little room right before and the screams of people outside brought anticipation and ominous. A pitch black room with the sound of someone breathing. The feeling of apprehensive came over me. I hated when I could hear and see shadows in the distance because I knew it was coming rather than not knowing. I think the feeling of I can see something in the distance is worse than not knowing at all. It was really fun I think my voice was pretty scratchy the next day. 

How I did during first term

Last term I think I did okay not super good but not horrible either. This term I’m going to try to read more books because I’ve been lacking in that area. I still haven’t finished my book yet. I’m a little less than half way done. I think if I take my book home and try to read outside of class that will help me be able to finish more books. I did get all of my assignments turned in before the end of the term so that’s good. I could also work on going the extra mile on all my assignments. But I think I need to work most on finishing my book. 

The Future

The world in 75 years is going to be so much different. I think this could go many different directions. I think people will be really really lazy because by then there will be so many advances in technology and stuff no one will have to do anything for themselves. The population will probably be really big so families will be smaller to keep population down. Houses will mostly be tall apartment buildings because of the population. I think there’s not much different transportation could be but I’m thinking every car will be able to drive themselves. I picture everyone being selfish and lazy. No one has to cook for themselves I’m sure they’re will be some machine that cleans up your messes. I think the culture will be different. There will probably be new activities people do for fun. I think people with bad social skills with only grow because of the technology. In conclusion it will be a very different place

Free write Egregious and Havoc

When I was driving home from my sister’s house there was a HUGE agregious traffic jam. It was the longest traffic jam I’ve ever been in. It was a place of havoc. It was in spanish fork canyon and it was 2 hrs long. Everyone in the traffic wasn’t happy and they were very irritated. My brother that was driving got really mad when cars would drive on the side of the rode to where the cause of the traffic was and get back in the lane. It was very boring and agregious I I really hope that wont happen again. This story is really boring. 

What have I been reading?

The book I’m reading right now is Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult. So far the book is about how a dead newborn baby was found in an Amish barn covered. The suspect is the 18 year old daughter (Katie Fisher) that is unmarried that lives on the farm. Ellie a big city attorney is sent to the farm to help Katie defend her case and stay on the farm to keep an eye on Katie. All Katie wants is someone to believe her. The book is pretty good I would recommend it. It is a little confusing at first. I couldn’t really find a picture of the book but I found one with another book. 

What Kind of Writer Am I?

I would say I’m not the best writer. I hate writing essays. I think I hate them because most of the time they have to be a certain amount of pages and I’m not good at thinking enough stuff to put in an essay. I need to improve most on having more ideas to put in an essay before I start. I also seem to always use the same words over and over so I need to work on thinking of new words. I don’t think there’s anything about writing that I’m good at, I think I’m pretty good at capitalizing but that’s about it. What use is essay writing? I think it gets you to get creative and get your brain working. The goal I have are to get a good list of ideas before I start writing. 

why we tell stories

We tell stories for many reasons. We tell stories for entertainment but we also tell personal stories. Reading stories or books help us learn more things. Reading books and poems help us learn how to read and also how to write stories. I think we mostly tell stories to see other people enjoy our stories. Stories are important to us because with out them we wouldn’t be able to learn very much. Some people tell stories because it’s their hobbie while others tell stories just to tell them. I think we tell stories because we like to see other people learn and enjoy our stories we tell. 

Letter To Me

If I were to re-write my letter to me I would tell myself that I would make all new friends and that my year would be GREAT! The advice I would put is probably don’t get caught in drama because it only turns out bad. What advice I would give myself for next year would be have fun because you can never come back to this day again and to just make more friends because really the only reason school is fun is friends. And I would say get better grades than 8th grade and try harder. My hopes and dreams for the future are to make the advanced drill dance team with my same team and to work harder at dance. I can’t wait to read this next year! Even though I’ll probably think why in the world would I put that!

Write About Your Reading

My strengths as a reader are I can read at a pretty good pace although I could be faster. I like to read drama books/romantic books. I also like to read history books like the Rush Revere books or the book Too Stubborn To Die. I’ve read some really good books this year but my top 3 books I really liked is Dear John, Rush Revere, and Tell Me Three Things. I think my all time favorite book I read this year is Dear John. I really liked the twist at the ending and how after every chapter my perspective on thing’s would change. The ending for sure made me think weather I was fine with it or not. Overall I really liked the way it made me think but the way it ended was quite sad.

I plan on reading more genre’s because I find myself reading the same kind of books again and again. My reading score at the end of the year is 1222 and my reading level at the beginning of the year was 1132. I improved so that is good. Last summer I didn’t read at all and this summer I plan to finish at least one or two books. I don’t want to think about starting school again but I will tell my 9th grade teacher the kinds of books I like to read (drama and historical fiction) and I hope to tell my teacher I finished at least one book during the summer.

Book Write #6

I’m not quite sure if this is right but I was thinking about the theme in Dear John and I was thinking that the biggest theme the author wants it’s reader to know is: Love can turn from good to bad and all confusing in a heart beat. The author explains this well in the book because John and Savannah had everything together. John had a plan of what he wanted after war was over. He knew that Savannah was his only love and he was going to marry her. Everything was good until Savannah sent a letter starting with Dear John. She broke his heart and she knew she did. I didn’t like what Savannah did and it made me SO mad but in the end I knew as much as John wanted it he knew he couldn’t change her feelings. The author gives a lot of detail on how John is feeling and it’s really sad honestly.
