Other things that I didn’t enjoy was how particularly near the beginning it felt like Nettie was constantly being forced to do things that she wasn’t comfortable with by the people who were supposed to be her friends. In fact for most of the book it felt like only Dan and her father were truly on her side and cared about what was best for her. And while the end result was a mostly happy ending for all, considering the situations that Nettie found herself in it could’ve at any point in time gone extremely wrong and she could have been in serious trouble. Another thing I wasn’t fond of was the relationship between Nettie and Jamie. It had extremely superficial roots and while there were some sweet moments between the two of them, I find it difficult to believe that they could last.
However I did not do a good job, to improve I should get more comfortable with speaking, which would help me actually debate next time, and contribute more. The intro speeches did not help me with becoming more comfortable while speaking, because public speaking is always horrible for me. The speech did set a limit on how bad my can be in the future. I personally am against the pipeline and dislike that I had to debate for it, especially from an environmental standpoint. However, I learned a lot about the hazards of natural gas pipelines such as leaks and explosions.
I feel as if I choose to stay away from writing because I do not feel confident in my writing abilities. *ow, if I had a little better idea on how a strong sentence is structured together, I would feel more confident with my writing abilities. ! ma(or reason why I am not confident with my writing abilities is because I tend to have a problem with where to put the correct punctuation and also nowing when to end a sentence. It ishard nowing that my writing is not at its strong point, but I am willing to tae any chance that isgiven to me, to strengthen my writing process. With that being said, it is a little obvious that writing is not one of my strong points.
Personally, this was my favorite chapter due to the fact it revealed a lot about the characters, especially Lennie. For example, George reveals why he stays with Lennie even though his life would be very different without him. Another thing that I observed, and loved, was how the author not only incorporated the true backstory and history of the two, but also included the future they have planned. However, in regards to their future, hearing the plans in detail brought feelings of sorrow towards Lennie and George because, having read the book, I know that those plans don’t happen.
As I mentioned earlier I have need felt like any of my teachers have forced anything on me but they have challenged me to think about what I believe. This has moved me to think about God in different ways. Some of those ways are not how a lot people want to think about God. I am not saying that thinking about in these different ways have changed my view on totally but they have caused me to examine them to see if they are true. In some ways this challenging of my faith has cause me to praise God more and in others it has caused my relationship with God to be hindered.
A Reflection upon my Writing I like to consider my writing process unique to that of other individuals. However, I know that my process is alike with most people. I personally am indifferent about writing and English. To me, I enjoy it because it is a great way for me to get my ideas out and it is a creative way to get people to see my side of a topic.
Overall, The Good Earth was not a book that captured my attention. This novel left me discontented and I felt as though it ended quite abruptly. I expected for this book to include a bit more action and drama as well. On the contrary, I did like the historical element that was included and also the major plot twist at the end. If anyone wants to know the ending, they’ll just have to read the book to find
Religion can help make sense of anything that occurs in one’s life whether good or bad. If it’s good, it is of God, but if it’s bad, it is automatically stated that it is of the devil. People are devilish and they should be rebuked and the devils cast from the souls of hell. Religion has been stated to provide inspiration, and is the force that bind individuals together. However, organized faith has its disadvantages.
Overall this book was captive. What caught my attention the most was the way Q was persistent even if at times he wanted to give up on solving the problem he was always lead to trying to find Margo one way or another. Paper Towns did meet my expectations it was entertaining to read this book and think what would happen next. At first, I Wondered why the author didn’t write about Margo making the other decision, why pick the sad ending but then I realized, that it was a better ending the way he described it. I would recommend this book to others because in my point of view, I like how it has many plot twists throughout the story and it gets you thinking every time.
The Princess Bride is an average book, meaning that there were interesting parts and some parts that were not engaging. I enjoyed how they included great detail when describing everyone’s live and what shaped them throughout time because it gives you an overview on what the character is like. Although I didn 't like how during the story when something interesting is happening, the author, William Goldman, would interrupt and spoil some parts, because as a reader, I like to find out what happens without having to stop in the middle of the story. Lastly, since I do not enjoy fantasy books, I did catch myself throughout the book zoning out because some parts were just not interesting and I didn’t like how the author would ramble on at some points.
