Virtues Blog

So, I failed. I kinda tried to follow Franklin’s virtues but not too strictly, if Benjamin Franklin couldn’t follow his own virtues I shouldn’t have to either… The virtues that were hardest to follow were: sincerity, silence, and temperance. I talk so much about random nonsense. My parents say I talk just to hear my…

Enough 😒

At first, I thought “The Dodo’s Conundrum” was about Christmas because of the building of the models, the trees, and the train on the tracks references, but it it’s actually more depressing than I thought. I also like the fact that the beginning and end of the poem have a stanzaic form but the middle…

Girl…👀

Part 1: When we began poetry I wasn’t excited. I didn’t want to read, write or analyze any poems at all. Since then, my views on poetry have kind of changed…a lot. I don’t hate reading poetry (most) and I don’t mind writing it, shockingly enough. Maybe its because we haven’t read a poem in…

Poetry? I don’t know her!

Poetry isn’t that bad. When we talk about doing poetry I always dread it but then when we actually do it, I usually kind of like it. The worst things about poetry are learning about stanza form and having to write poems. I did not like writing poetry at the beginning of this lesson and…

Independent Reading 2: sigh

The second book I read for ‘AR’ was The Raven King by Nora Sakavic. This book is the sequel to the last book I read (the one my other blog is about) which are both part of the Foxhole Court trilogy. I LOVED this book. Surprisingly enough I think the sequel might be better than the first…

Independent Reading 1: why

The first book I read for ‘AR’ was The Foxhole Court which was a really good book. I usually hate reading but this book I didn’t mind. For small-minded people like me, this book was very easy to understand and enjoy. I actually did not want to put this book down once I started reading….

Not Again..

My short story didn’t actually change that much since I first got the idea. Some small details of my story changed but the main idea stayed the same. In the beginning, I wanted my story to be about a dead husband, and the wife was looking for him and that’s basically what mine is still…

Bad Story Alert!

So my story is about a woman looking for her missing husband that’s actually dead. Eventually she kills herself after not finding him and they are finally reunited in the underworld. That’s basically it. I developed the idea as soon as I read the 6 word story line. The first part of the line, “I’m…

THE FOXHOLE COURT 1

Ok so I’m going to give you a little recap of what’s currently happening in the book so you’ll understand where I’m coming from. So Neil gets recruited to go play for an exy team at a different school. And this series is mostly (maybe not mostly but a lot) about these two schools that…

‘I Put a Spell On You’ is stuck in my head

So, since reading The Devil and Tom Walker, I can’t stop wanting to watch Hocus Pocus even though it is not even October yet (this is unhealthy)!!! I really liked this short story but it made it feel like spooky season is upon us and the leaves haven’t even changed colors yet! At the beginning…
