Book review and announcements

So I have decided that from now on for the rest of the summer I will be writing book reviews. I just finished The 13th Reality: The Journal Of Curious Letters. (First one in the series.) The book review for that book is below. 

I loved The 13th Reality. It brought excitement and riddles. For the books I have read in the past, the main charter may have to solve a puzzle or two but not like this book, which is centered around riddles. Another thing about the book is that you don't find everything out tell near the end. I figured out that it had to tell the stuff I did not know, but not until the end of the book. This really added a "can't put it down" feeling to the book. If you are looking for an action packed book, then this is not your first choice. It has elements of action here and there. It also has a lot of action at the end, but over all not the best "action action action!!!" book.

Overall I love this book because of the main character, Tick. In my opinion he acts like me. This allows me to relate to him and it gives the story another level of realism, instead of being just another fairy tale. Tick is a nerdy one for sure. He loves to learn and is bullied. (The perfect combo!) The most unique thing about Tick is how he deals with bullies. Instead of crying or snipping back at the bully, he just waits and let's it happen. This is awesome in my opinion because he knows it's not getting better so he deals with it. This builds an understanding of how accepting and courageous Tick is. It's leaving me to wonder how much he will have to do in the next book. Just a couple of side notes: There is no magic in this book. It is all math and SCIENCE, so don't go reading wanting magic. There is an over powering force, but that is also not magic. (NO MAGIC.)

Next on deck is The 13th Reality: The Hunt For Dark Infinity!

Also I am going to write a summary about The Art Assignment. (The Art Assignment is a YouTube series where they hand out assignments for you to do.) You should subscribe.

Footprint emotions and a perfect world

So, in class lately we have been talking about three main things: emotions, footprint, and a perfect world. So obviously I will take this in three parts, then a conclusion. So, let's get started.

Part 1 Emotions 
We were asked if animals have feelings. We basically concluded that animals do have feelings, just not as many as we do. For example, dogs must have feelings or else they would not enjoy a walk or want to go on one at all. They would just live. But instead, they do get excited that they're going to go on one. Then they sometimes mope if they don't get to go on one. In my opinion, this is pure evidence that dogs do have feelings and it shows how important feelings are. By having feelings, it makes life more than just survival of the fittest.

Part 2 Footprint 
Another thing, footprints... ahh, footprints. You can't imagine how much we talked about this. Me personally, I think that footprints are one of the most important things out there. Did you leave a print that people can see and look up to? Or did you leave one that they have to clean up after? It's what you left behind for everyone else and what you did for them that matters. So, watch your footprint and make it a good one.

Part 3 A Perfect World
Lastly, a perfect world, in my opinion, is impossible. You can't have everyone have everything. People are too greedy and too selfish. But, you can have lots of happiness. You can have an equal world. That would be pleasing to me. But a perfect world, not happening. Not in this world with this species. 

All in all, this means to me that what you leave behind affects what others do, which affects their feelings. So, make them feel good and help get us all closer to that impossible perfect world. The only thing stopping you now is impossibility and we all know that that's the only thing that is impossible.

What future gerations will think of us

I think future generations will look at us as a changing point in history. We aclrated tecnolgy faster than ever befor. Not meaning the communication we have with evryone. Our geration is also to be looked at because of the line between human and robot is blurring. But this could end many ways so keep working hard and make the next genration proud.

Letter to the 5th Grader

Dear 5th Grader, January, 25 2014

Guess what? I've got great info about middle school! One thing you should know about middle school is that you need to juggle a lot more assignments. In turn, this gives you more homework. Be prepared because being unprepared and unorganized could be catastrophic. Also the iPad is a big tool but it also has responsibilities such as checking for homework often. Middle school is just a whole lot more responsibility. Nobody is making you go anywhere. If you want to be late, you can be late. You really have to be on task. Lastly and certainly least, there is no more recess. Overall, middle school is a place where you get some more privileges and a lot more responsibilities.       

Personally, my favorite thing about middle school is the iPad. When you are at home, after you've done your work, it gives you a lot more options for free time. There are a lot of games you can choose to play and have fun with. The iPad also makes it so we can use apps to study, read and make documents. Using the iPad gives you a lot of ways to help the environment such as using it to not waste paper or going to websites such as to earn rice for the hungry. Also there are many apps, such as google drive, that allow you to work on one document at the same time with other students. 

To finish up, you are going to be fine. A few low grades are not the end of the world. Just remember that you should always do your best and have fun. One last thing, as the Maya Angelo said "There is no greater agony that bearing an untold story inside yourself." In my opinion this means that you should get out there and do something.
