Poetry, honestly I am not one hundred percent sure how I feel about it. I like reading some poems and I think that some can have a lot of meaning and an important message. However writing poetry is pretty difficult. I got my poem done but thinking of ideas and writing it is just hard. Its easier once you get going. I thought of it as writing a little rap verse and I made mine funny but honestly I thought that it was pretty good. I liked reading the poem “Eldorado”, it was a little weird not going to lie but it was cool and kind of trippy. The poem just made you think, like what does the land of Eldorado stand for for every average person? And what happens when you find it? The poem was low key sad, just that he never found it, and he spent his whole life searching for something that the knight could only find once he was dead. But I am not really sure what I could do to make my poem better, I honestly put a lot of effort in to it and it was still hard which does not usually happen. I could probably work on the flow of it a little but and extend my vocabulary to get better rhyming words. I know that writing this next poem is going to be a real challenge for me as I am not too good at writing in general. But on a different topic I also liked the one poem that we read where the bird was trolling the guy and he was all scared and stuff. I thought that one was pretty cool and interesting. I guess poetry is not so bad after all. I am just not really sure how people make money off of this stuff.Image result for simpsons raven poem

The Devil and Tom Walker

I thought that this story was pretty interesting and honestly was well written. The author thought about this text a lot while he was writing it and he used very descriptive words and it really gives the reader a vivid image. It wasn’t really similar to anything that I have read in the past because this text was quite different. I feel like this text is giving off a dark and gloomy kind of feeling. But I do not know why the author wrote it and what the purpose of it would be, it is just an overall depressing piece of writing, it talks about how Tom and his wife are greedy and stingy even towards each other. Coming into the story I thought that Tom would find the treasure and the devil then make some kind of bargain then Tom could keep the treasure and live a happy life but no, it ends with him being thrown on to the back of I am assuming the devils horse and is never seen again, that is messed up. However I did actually enjoy reading this story and I feel that it could spark up some interesting conversations in class.

The First Week

Just last Monday it was so hard for me the believe that it was a school night. But then I got to school and I saw all my buddies and I realized everything was okay. Obviously the first day was long and annoying but it was also easy cause well, it was the first day. Wednesday wasn’t bad either, it was still a bit hard to come to that realization of school. Wednesday was the first day of school that I got homework on, I was not too happy about this, though I still completed it. But overall the first week was pretty good. I have good classes with a lot of my buddies so that is pretty cool. Thursday, I forget what happened but I know it was good day. At this point I was getting hyped for the school year because it finally set into my mind that I am a junior this year, and next year I am going to be a senior which is honestly crazy to think about. I already know that this year is going to fly by. I told myself at the beginning of the year that I am going to be grinding for good grades and it is going well so far except for English class, I currently have a 46 but I am going to get on it and bump up my grade. Friday, was great I remember, because after that it is the weekend and I get to chill with all my friends. That was my first week of school, overall it was pretty good
