The First Story I Read

The first story I read was The Veldt by Ray Bradbury. The story is about how there is a very high tech house. In this house there is a room with tv screens for walls and whatever you want to see you think about and i pops up on the walls and makes it feel like you’re at that place that you wanted to see. Later on in the story, two parents find out that their kids have been watching dark things such as lions eating their prey and getting blood everywhere. So the parents think about what they found out and the father decides he wants to shut down this room that they call the nursery room.

What I’ve Been Reading

I have been reading the book called Michael Vey. This book is by Richard Paul Evans. I really love this book because it is one of a whole series. There are seven books and I am on book number six right now. I usually don’t like reading as much but when I read this series it makes me feel like I could sit down for hours and fall into this book and just keep reading. I started reading this whole series when i was in sixth grade. At first I struggled to start reading this series but when I finially finished the first book I just fell in love and haven’t stopped reading them ever since. When I first tried to read the very first book I couldn’t read even halfway through without stopping for some reason, and i wanted to change that. So what I did was i just kept reading, and reading, and reading. After some time I realized I was almost done with the book and I haven’t had trouble reading the books ever since.

What will the future be like?

I think the future will be a lot more advanced in technology but also in mechanics and in overall everything. Kind of like the article describes, I think houses will be alot more high tech with updated everything whether it’s cars, kitches, or even beds. I think that everything will be a lot more efficient in the future too. I feel like the world won’t be changed as much as it is now but the only thing that will change in my opinion is mostly technology and mechanics. I think cars will look a lot more updated and they will have more technology to stay safer. Then technology, I think computers and software will be a lot more advanced and they will have updated technology in everything. I also feel like there will be tons of new inventions that will make our live a whole lot easier and way better.

“There Will Come Soft Rains” Poetry Analysis

In the poem “There Will Come Soft Rains” by sara Teasdale she talks about some things in life that could possibly relate to things in the war. One thing that really stuck out to me was when she said that the swallows will be circling with their shimmering sound. I think that this could maybe be relating to when planes would fly over the battle field and drop bombs. This was about the time when planes and tanks were created so she could be relating to planes in the sky. Another thing that the author says is “Not on would mind, neither bird nor tree, If mankind perished utterly.” To me this means that after this war is over nobody will really care why they were fighting, they were just fighting to fight. Nobody will remember why and so this just overall relates the world to all life and trees and stuff.

What I’m doing right and What I can still do better.

This year some things I’ve been doing right are turning in assignments on time and paying better attentinon in class. So far in this ninth grade year I’ve been tons better at making sure my grades are better by staying caught up on assignments and making sure I’m focusing. So far when my grades get lower I go talk to my teachers and get the assignments that I’m missing turned in. I usually sort of struggle with focusing in class so this year I’ve been trying to get better at that too so I know what I’m supposed to be doing for homework and stuff like that. Some things I could do better are talking to my teachers a little bit more and making sure I’m always working harder then the previous day. I am LOVING ninth grade so far and I’m going to try and keep it that way by staying positive, staying caught up, and making sure I’m doing my homework.

Who am I as a Writer?

My first experience with writing was when I was in kindergarten. I went to preschool at my own house with m mom as my teacher with all of my friends. I remember we used to have cometitions who could write the most words in one minute and I had alot of wins in that but I absolutely loved writing in kindergarten. One thing with writing that I loved learning the most was in third grade. That was the year I learned how to write in cursive. I actually used to be really really good at cursive then I just never used it again and I am terrible with it now. Ever since junior high I haven’t really loved writing, I love typing though. It was kind of weird because my family says I have the best hand writing out of all my brothers and I personally don’t think my handwriting is that good but over the summer my hand writing gets super super terrible and then when school starts up again it gets better and better because I actually use handwriting in school for everything.

My Reading Journey

My experience with reading is kind of off and on. I started reading about after preschool. My very first book i read all on my own was called Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. I loved this book because it taught me how to count better along with having words to read. I loved to read back then, I thought I was so cool because I could read when some of my friends couldn’t. I loved reading all throughout elementary school then when sixth grade hit I realized I hadn’t read any books in a while. I tried read a book called I Survived. I started it and liked it then I got to about chapter four or five I think, that’s when i just quit becuase I just didn’t want to finish that book. Then from seventh to ninth grade I started to read a little more, every now and then I would read when I was bored and then when teachers started making me read at home I would do it. Now I’m still kind of mixed. I like some books and others are just terrible in my opinion. Right now I’ve been reading Michael Vey and I absolutely love that series. So right now im in the stage where I like to read.
