From Charlie’s family problems, depression, and isolation his personality was developed with a sensitivity that could be easily understood. Slowly I developed self-confidence, I realized I just needed to search out the books I wanted to read. The significance of finding this book remains to this day. If I had not read The Perks of Being a Wallflower I would have never got into reading in the first place. Reading this book start to finish made me realize just how countless other great books could be just out of reach.
She put me in her college english class when I became a senior, because she said I showed potential to be successful, and I am so proud that I took that class because it taught me how to do more. When I went back to public school I joined the reading competition team again, and for both junior and senior year, I became captain because I showed the team that I was the willpower to read all 30 books within the deadline. Even though our team did not place in the top ten, each year we grew closer and closer, and my team says it is with the help of me. I think going back to public school has helped me. Even though a lot of people believe that Jeannette is not a good school, and that they do not teach us the necessary components to get us to learn, just like in Sherman Alexie's reading, but we have shown people that they are wrong, and that we have some of the best kids in the school around the area.
Not to mention it was the middle of December and my schools heater was broken. My anxiousness for school to be over also probably had something to do with the fact that English is my least favorite subject. I didn’t really dislike English but I was never really good at it. For some reason, where to put a comma just doesn’t stick with me. I knew from the time I walked in the classroom that my teacher was about to give us this lame writing assignment that I had no interest in doing.
I had a big challenge growing up and had trouble with reading in my elementary years. Growing up listening to Spanish music and talking mostly Spanish was hard for me to start school and learn English, at 4 years old. The challenge was that for some reason I mixed my B's and D's, are and our, and would read slowly. Every time I read I saw the words but couldn’t pronounce them well and took time to see if I am reading it correctly, which most of the time I was not. No one knew I had trouble reading because I never showed it.
Learning to read and write was not particularly hard, but it still took a long time before I was proficient doing it. To 6-year-old-me, reading and writing was just a thing grown-ups forced me to do to keep me away from my toys and the TV. I did not have any interest in doing it because it felt like a chore. Every second I spent practicing my reading was a second I spent away from my toys. Letters were not entertaining at all.
By bringing my book collection to school and exchange with my new classmates, I established long lasting friendship with those who shared the same passion for reading. While I still needed to rush home after school, we now spent a lot of time between classes discussing book plots and characters. One of my new best friends, a witty girl with Bob haircut and cat-eye glasses, introduced me to Homer and the Greek Mythology which sparkled great interest in me and I had always wanted to read its entirety ever
What can I do to appease my endless boredom? I would always ask myself this question and always get the same answer ‘Nothing’. The only thing that has been able to alleviate even a fraction of my boredom was reading light novels. I found it quite interesting which is saying something from someone who can never feel excitement. I had become quite a fan of the fantasy like worlds that would be described but reality could never allow such a thing.
At first, I struggled with reading. Fortunately, my step-dad and mom pushed me to read every day and it paid off. By the time I was in fifth grade I tested to a twelfth grade reading level. Reading wasn’t just a chore, it played a huge role in my childhood. When I think about how reading shaped who I am, I consider all of the stories that I could relate to, or the stories that made me grateful that I live the life I do.
At the time I despised reading, but each year you 'll always find me with a book in my hands. To tell you the truth, I didn 't read word by word; I used to just skim through the pages. I did read a little bit here and there, but at a young age, I hardly had any patience, especially with
Overall I was a good student in elementary, but I had many flaws and I still do. To begin with I was a hard working student even though I was horrible in math and reading. If people would describe me they would say was very shy in fact I rarely talked. I wasn't like the rest of my classmates, they would play sports every year and I only was in cross country for 3 years and played baseball for 1 year. I was practically a chill and shy boy.
This book caused me to read more books with substance and less books about a moody kid with mood rings and dried cherries, not that there were many books like that. This book gives me a lot of nostalgia and I like this book. I would also save this book because I’m probably the only one who
Now, I enjoy reading, but not as much as I used to. I have to be in the mood for reading and finding a book to read for fun, and not for class, is a difficult task. On the occasions that I do read, I listen to music. Most people would be distracted by this, but it helps me concentrate for some strange reason. When I begin reading the book I’m
I sunk down into my seat and stayed quite the rest of the day. This incident made me want to show her that u was adaptable to read "big kid" books. I was reading books like Junie B. Jones and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom every day after school with my
I don’t know how different my life would be without reading. My interest in reading made school fun for me. It gave me a reason to try in school, and put forth an effort to do my best. My interest in reading when I was younger made me the student that I am today. In my first few years of school, I did not care.
