Term 4 blog post

I chose the book Arizona forever, the reason I chose this book is because it is and romance and it also was suggested to me by my cousins, so I thought I would give it a try. It also is very modern and I haven’t read a book like that in a while.

My book is a adult reading level. On amazon there was no grade level so therefor it is a adult level. The age of my main character is 27 years old.

My author is a amazon best selling author. There was no movie made after it though. It is well known in Utah because it is about a LDS girl and is sold at seagull book ( a LDS store). One thing I love about my book is that its so modern, it talks like we do today and uses slaying terms and it makes the book seem more real.

I already know that she had a rough childhood by reading the prologue and that she is the only girl with three older brothers. That she is the only girl and now has niece and nephew. It doesn’t ever really say anything about her looks or personality but it has a picture of her on the front.

Self Evaluation

On my reading index score I got 1092 which is an 11th grade level. So that means for and 8th grader I am above grade level and it says I am right where I need to be for collage at my age. I feel really good about my test and was very happy with my score. I thought I would get a lower score because English isn’t my best class. I am very glad I got the score I did.

For term 3 I read Edenbrooke and I LOVED it. I loved the story and how everything worked out with her twin and how she wasn’t perfect but her “prince” loved her for who she was. My book report I felt really good about and thought it looked very presentable, but I definitly did not get the score I wanted. Yes it was my fault and I wish I could have done something to fix it but I don’t know what was wrong with it. I would have changed some things, I would have not gotten sick with the flu a week before the term ends on book report day. I really wish I could have been here to get the points I needed.

For term 4 I don’t know what book I want to read but I would love a book similar to Edenbrooke. I hope to get a good grade on everything so I end up with an A. And I hope to do better (a lot better) on my book report next term.


Call to adventure

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

My everyday life is pretty basic. I go to school and then to dance and that is pretty much all I do. I wake up and get ready then I go to school. Then after school I ride the bus if I stayed for fourth period, if not my mom comes and gets me and I go straight to dance. I usually get done with dance super late so when I get home I do homework and go to bed.

My call to adventure was wanting to become a cougarette I was so excited to try and become a cougarette. I had the right training to be able to become one so I would just have to keep working hard. There dances and trips look so fun and really push you.

But I didn’t really want to because it would be really hard. There are no scholarships for the dance program at BYU so before I could try to become a cougarette I would have to get accepted into BYU. I decided that the hard work would be worth it and that I should at least try.

There are many people that will help me and are helping me now. One of them is my dance teachers, they do so much for me and spend so much time teaching me the things that I need to be able to become a cougarette. Another one is my school teachers, they help me learn the things that I need to get into BYU.  My parents are also a huge part of this. They support me and pay for my dance and school. My friends and family also are great supporters in my choice.

A talent or skill that I have that helps me help others is dance. When I perform at a benefit concert for Shriners hospital. We do this once a year and all of the dancers raise money for the hospital and we do a concert and we give the money to them. “We dance so others can walk” is a quote we put on our shirts. We do it at a school in salt lake and they let us do it for free and use the money we would pay them with and donate it to the hospital. My dance studio does a great job at preparing amazing experiences or me.Art With Heart - Dance Impressions


One time when I felt in peace and everything was right in the world was when I switched schools.  I switched because the drill team is more advanced and my dad was coaching baseball. I was so scared and only knew one person in my grade that wasn’t family. But when I came to the school everyone was so nice and included me. I like pleasant grove jr. high way more than american fork. Its not a better school but its a better fit for me. That was one time when everything was right and just getting better every day.

During Christmas break I did a lot with my cousins and friends and that was really fun. I went and saw three new movies over the break the first one I saw was with my dads side and we saw Ferdinand then with my moms side of the family we went and saw The Greatest showman, and with my family we saw Jumanji it was really fun. For Christmas I got new luggage and lots of clothes. I had a really fun Christmas break.

This term I chose to read the book Kiss of Deception. The reason that i’m reading this book is because my mom and a few of my friends recommended it to me. The author is Mary E. Pearson she has many other books that are very good too.  Amazon link here. This book is directed to teens. If you look at it on amazon it tells you. Amazon link here

This year I am going off soda. I am doing it with my family, if we do it my mom will take me to Disneyland on my birthday. I don’t think that this will be hard because I already have very little soda.

“Me” Poem Response

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The poem that I liked the most was called The anthem of awesome. The reason that I enjoyed this poem more than the others is because this one is very uplifting and joyful but it is also simple and short and I feel like I could write a poem like that. This poem isn’t really like me but I would like to be like it because its is so positive. This doesn’t really go along with my theme song but I really like this topic too. It reminds me of dance and how I can improve every day.

End of term one!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This term when I read I think about how it took me from August to October to finish my book. I felt really rushed when reading and I would have liked longer to finish. I should have spaced it better though because I spent almost a whole weekend reading just to finish in time. So next quarter I would space my time better with reading so I didn’t read like my whole book in one weekend. But comfortably reading I would have liked longer.

I did like that I didn’t have to worry about losing papers and that I always had access to it. But I didn’t like that we had to do a lot of links and stuff because if you missed one the assignment wouldn’t get turned in. I wish that we didn’t do as many blog posts because some of them I felt we didn’t really need.

One thing I really liked about my book report was that it helped me understand my book even better and wasn’t to hard. I wish that we didn’t have to make something and that we could just write about it and I wish that we didn’t have to present in front of everyone. I wouldn’t change anything the one I did was good.

I would read my book faster and I would worry about my grades more at the beginning and not just at the end. I would read the same book and get the same grade. But I think that term 1 went really well.

One of the main symbols in my book is the shoe. It is a symbol of how she is a cyborg because it shows you the metal foot. That symbol also shows how the story is related to the Cinderella story. The shoe is also red which is a symbol of passion, cinder is very passionate. But the shoe kind of gives a hint about the book because, in the first of the book she is very tomboy and does not want to go to the dance but if she is wearing the shoe which is a high heel she most likely went to the dance.

Based on my cover the most important thing is the Cinderella story in the book. Like how her step-mother and step-sister are really mean to her and then she falls in love with the prince. They are for sure marketing the book to girls. the book has a lot of feminine stuff and ages 10-18. I really like the cover of my book I think that it is really good and represents my book really well.

Cinder is very determined and had a mind of her own. She won’t let anyone tell her what to do. The authors lessons in the book are that we can do anything just like cinder and that we can be determined and be able to are very best.

The plot in my book starts with a realization then after her realization there is some love but not really she just cant decide. After this happens there is a disagreement between her and some family she try’s to solve it but it turns into a tragedy. There is revenge and sacrifice. After the sacrifice there is a twist and the story goes on from there (This is where I am in the book)!

The main conflict in my book is between the lunars and the cyborgs/ humans. There are many other little conflicts is the book, such as ledimosis and cinders family stuff.

The favorite part of my book so far is every time cinder and the prince meet, it always is awkward and kind of funny! And cinder can never get over that the prince actually talked to her more than once!
