I think my biggest change was friend groups, but I’m not talking about that. I have gotten a job and a bird. School wise I think I’ve gotten smart I hope. Classes were kinda hard but we did it and we can’t fail so that helps me think I’m doing OK. I’m most proud of getting all A’s every single term. I honestly don’t know how I did. I always turned stuff in late.. I think one of my favorite memories was with my cousins in salt lake city on their balcony on 24th of July. Lets just say we ordered door dash and had a burrito thrown to the second story.
I have chosen to do the quote “We’re making a step.” It’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step”. Miss Maudie was talking about how black people don’t really get fair cases but they are getting there. I really like this quote because it reminds me that even if its something small it still is something and something is better then nothing. It gives us hope that maybe in the future of the book or life back then that they could start getting better lifestyles. I really like how some don’t like that but some do like it. Later it shows that people can change and it goes back to the step thing.
When I started reading it, I hated it because we had to read it for school. I still didn’t love it but it was fine I guess. My experience wasn’t the best because I don’t really love reading and being forced to read is not amazing. I liked the parts about Boo/Arthur Radley. He had a good story line and it wasn’t super deep. If it was I didn’t get it. If someone wanted to read it I would say “if you like books that are kinda boring and you want to spend time doing that then great read it.
I think things could get worse but we should no think that way. I think we need an open mind even though it is hard. I mean we could have a fire that burns down all of our houses but lets not think like that. Our world can get back to normal. Just think we had the black plague and now we are fine from that. So we just have to kinda wait this out, and about the homework thing. I’m really behind I don’t even know how but I am. So I hope collages will just skip this year and not look at my grades. I have like 3 F’s and a bunch of C’s which is not a lot but usually i have B’s.
I think a code is kinda like a philosophy. One of mine is that if someone needs help try in some way to help them. Even if it’s a smile or just a hug it could help them a lot and you never know. One thing my dad told me that really stuck was that “you should help them even if it doesn’t help you. At least you get to know you helped.” We were at dinner and this collage student was making balloon animals and she made us some and my dad gave her a pretty good tip. I asked why and he said that. I really like that and want to stick to it.
I’m going to do mine on Mayella Ewell. I’m still a little confused on what happened so please tell me if I say something wrong. I think she had some bad crap going on in her life. She seems really lonely. She does all the work by herself and her siblings don’t really help and her dad is abusive I think. She really liked Tom Robinson and that is not a sin, but it was back then. After the trial I don’t really know what is going to happen. She might just go on with life and that is not a great thing. I feel kinda bad for her. She is scared and I don’t really know what to do to help her.
I liked the poem. I think he did a really good job putting mental images into the poem. When I first read it I was a little confused because I missed the first line but after I read it again I got it a lot better. I think the author was trying to say that we should not give up on dreams because it’s just a big mess and it doesn’t look or smell to good. You also should never give up on the dreams you come up with. What does this have to do with the slaves you might ask. Well maybe that they couldn’t really dream or that they had nowhere to go to finish or start those dreams.
I’m dealing with the Corona pretty good I feel like. I mostly just work on school but when I have free time I started a website. I’m still working on it but it’s kinda cool. I also have been doing challenges with my friends and that’s really fun. One was following a makeup tutorial and neither of us could do it. It was so bad. When I’m doing my school work. I hate it. I still have to do school but without the social part. That was the only thing I liked about school. I’m so bored but it’s kinda a cool experience.
In the poem Strange Fruit is about lynching in the south. I really felt like I could feel what was happening. It made me feel a little uncomfortable. It was a really like I could see what was happening. I agree with what they were saying that the line of smelling the fruit then the smell of blood.
That would be very gruesome to walking through and see that. I think the author was trying to get the point across that this is not a good thing to be doing but it was so natural and you saw it a lot more then you should.
I think Atticus was trying to say that everyone has their faults some might be bigger then other people but we all have them. You can still be a good person and have a fault. I have a fault of being on my phone way to much but that doesn’t mean I’m bad. I know someone with a drinking problem. He is really into that stuff but that doesn’t mean he is a bad person. As I was saying we all have faults but we can get past them just like Scout was trying to do with the people who were going to hurt Atticus. It’s like a wall we have to get through to reach what we really need and want.
