I do not agree with the saying “that government is best which governs least.” I think it is more the people who run the government. If the people in office are good at their job then it should be fine. Also, who decides if the government is good at their job. There are a lot […]

Blog 15: Thoreau’s Attempt

They have very similar thoughts. They both focus a lot on nature and express that you shouldn’t worry about what people think of you. Society will be wrong so just do your own thing.

Poetry

Honestly I do not like reading a lot of poetry. There are only a few types I like to read.  Anyway, the poems we read were okay I guess, but I would not read them again. I would only if I had to. I just find some poetry to be very boring. I think Eldorado […]

Independent Reading

The first book that I choose to read was The Secret Language of Sisters. I choose to read this book because the synopsis thing when you open the book made it seem exciting. Also, the picture looked cool so it made me grab it off the shelf. The synopsis talked about how one text changed […]
