THE END

tonight I read the giver again the last chapter sadly!!!


this time, Jonas was about to go up a steep hill in the snow. but this was also the firs time that he realized that Gabriel was very important and it showed how much Jonas "loved" him by telling me the way he looked at him and the way he saw him. I think that this book had a bad ending to it and I wish that it was longer.

The Failure









Today I read chapter 16 in the giver. today Jonas asked his family if they loved him... well at least he asked his dad and mom. his dad gave him an amusing chuckle which was not what Jonas was looking for. his mother said that it was not a correct use of language. Ii think that this was a good thing to put in this chapter because I think that there needs to be more humor in this book.

good memories

Today the giver was very funny. jonas asked his parents if they loved him. but his dad gave him an amused chuckle.... which was not what jonas was expecting. also, the giver gave him a memory of joy. during christmas and a warm hearted family full of love. I think that it was a very important part because without it, he wouldn't be able to feel joy and love. and i also think that its not fair that one understands what its like to feel emotions and he has nobody to talk to.

His life (interview)

His life


Black = ME     BLUE=GRANDPA   PINK = GRANDMA     <--SHE loves to interrupt


“Knock Knock”. It was grandpa PB He said that he came over to help grandma clean the gutters before the rain. Since he was here then maybe I could interview him. He was okay with that as long as it went quick. So we sat down at the table with my pencils and paper ready.


Grandpa was at the table getting ready for my questions that I had to ask. he is 65 years old. His real name is john hicks. But since he loves peanut butter, his name is PB. Thank the lord that he was not mad or stressed, because if he was then it would be a pain in the butt to get it done. he had a hard workin man's hands, all dirty scared up and cut up. Literally he had the most hairiest arms I have ever seen. My grandpa had awesome black/grey hair and the most attractive face ever. yeah I know that sounds really really weird but if I was his age and a girl then I would atleast try.


We were in the kitchen and we could hear my sister and my grandma watching t.v. and laughing.  we finally got started with this interview.



THE INTERVIEW.


    “What was your favorite thing to do an average day?”


“Well, the best thing to do on days that i did not have to work or go to school, was riding horses because I would always ride alone up a certain hill in texas. What was the view like? The view was beautiful there was a lot of weeds but plenty of flowers and nearly every day I would ride my horse and take food to the cattle and feed them. But when i had school, my father would drive me in a tractor which was groovy because when we showed up, all the ladies thought I was cool.”


    What was your plan after college?”


My plan was to go to the military. My choices were big. But sadly i did not even finish high school. I was a sophomore and i went straight into the navy without an option. I flew to station in maine in 1965. It was about a year of just tests and training. Soon, i was ready to be an ordnance man. What was an ordnance man?  Well budd an ordnance man was someone in the navy that flew around in a plane over the ocean looking for submarines in the water. For six years i was doing this. Flying around the atlantic and the mediterranean sea. Finally i retired in 1971.”


What did you do with your life after the navy?


I got a job in maine. I was washing cars for $5.00 a car. So usually every day I got 50 to 60 bucks. And when I wasn't washing cars I was always collecting bottle caps or gardening and sometimes I went to clubs. Uhh grandpa let's not. Haha sorry kid. But I would always love going out with friends to dinner or play tennis and sometimes golf. One time when I went out to dinner by myself, and that's how I met your grandma. She was also alone in a booth I always saw her at church. So, I met her by saying…”Hey I think we go to the same church”. And Then, we talked about ourselves and planned a dinner or a hangout date. And a couple days later we went to church together. And after that, we went to eat some brunch and I took her out to a lake to feed ducks. It was the most beautiful time of my life.


What was the best thing that had ever happened to you?


The best thing that ever happened to me was your grandmother. But of course taking jesus christ as my savior. Just curious, how did you ask grandma to marry you? I asked her in a lake. Or the lake that we fed the ducks. That's what we went there for in the first place. We were walking on the shore and i got pushed in and I could just feel that I was ready to ask her. But the ring was in my pocket when she pushed me in. when I went back up to get air, she jumped in and I went into my pocket to get the ring but it wasn't there. Thankfully the water wasn't too murky so i could just barely see the reflection of the silver. And I went down and got it. And she said yes. Wow that was beautiful P.B. I love you. I love you too dear. As long as THEY are happy together I am happy.

Life in Six days
Johnny Caldera
period 3
12-3-15




 Sewell's Diary


Day One


Dear diary, this is my first time writing in my diary. So let me write about me and some of my life. My name is Sewell Wulfstan I am 11 years old. I have four friends named Edmond, Edwin, Audrey, Eda. 2 boys and 2 girls. I play games with my friends every day unless my Mum wants me to go squash the grapes for wine, or go and kill a chicken for supper, or go run to the market to get spices such as pepper, salt, and garlic.




Day Two


Dear diary, Today, I eat a delicious breakfast with bacon, and bread. My Mum is a brilliant cook. She used to be a baker but she is now a stay at home Mum. After breakfast I went outside to play ring around the rosie with my friends. Then, we played hide and go seek. Those are our favorite games. As it got dark, I went home for supper. My mum told me that she was pregnant. I was happy until she gave me the words that I did not want to hear. My pop was dead…. I did not know what to do. my pop was everything to me. He taught me how to swim he taught me how to kill a chicken for supper. My mum tried to tell me what happened, but I did not want to hear it, so I ran outside and I lie there soaking in the rain. And asleep I went.




Day Three


Dear diary, I spent the whole day thinking about my pop. I thought of what he looked like, what he sounded like, and everything that we did with each other.My mum came to tell me how he died. This time I listened. My pop had died from the worst disease ever… Smallpox. That hit me hard. I hate to see him die, but If I had to see him die, I would rather see him die in the least painful way. But Smallpox was not comfortable. It was an itchy painful disease. My pop was gone. Gone forever. And now is the time to forget him but always be with me.


Day Four
 
Dear diary, Today I finally spent time with my friends. I did not want to tell them about my po because I was still trying to get him off of my mind. At Least I had fun with my friends. Today there was an issue between Edmond and I because he wanted to be it for hide and go seek, but so did I. So we argued and argued, until he ran home In an aghast mood. that was about it when my mum called me in for supper. Tonight we had turkey, bread and beer for supper. During supper, my Mum asked what to name the baby that should be coming in possibly two days.. So I said my Pop’s name Kenelm. Yes yes, I know I said that I do not want to think about him but It will remind me of him sometimes when I look at the baby. Somehow, she agreed. I knew that I would love Kenelm. We will do everything together.





Day five


Dear diary, Today I woke up and ate bacon eggs and bread. It was the best breakfast ever. I just know that kenelm will love mums’ breakfast. Then, I went off for a walk to the market to get spices for tonight's noodles. Soon, when I was done, I saw Edmond. He said that he was sorry about yesterday. But honestly, I did not care at all. I asked him if he wanted to go chop wood with me for the fire at home. In case you did not know, Every house in my village has a fire in the middle if the room to always stay warm and cozy. Edmond said that he could not because he had to go help his older sister bath for the first time before her wedding.




Day Six


Dear diary, Today My Mum gave birth to Kenelm. My Mum sent me to get the midwife. When my Mum gave birth, she did not look comfortable. Kenelm is so adorable. Now I can finally have something but a couple of chickens and goats to take care of. Kenelm put a tear of joy in my eyes. The way he put his fingers around my thumb made me want to hold him forever.

Hatchet K-bar

I read hatchet by Gary Paulsen and brain just saw the bear and I think that that will be a foreshadow for later in the book.

outsiders question.

Dally gallant or not.


dally was not gallant when he died because he had so much anger and violence inside of him and he was never really kind to others. dally was angry because johnny had died and the anger inside of him, made him want to rob the store and get shot by the police.

Hatchet K-bar

I am reading hatchet by gary paulsen still, and brian just found his shelter in a stone wall and right now the only thing that he has is a hatchet. and he is very hungry and thirsty but he can't get himself to move.

Outsiders book.

Johnny: “Stay gold.”


I think it means that in the book with all the connection with johnny and pony and the poem that pony said "Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold.Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf, So Eden sank to grief,So dawn goes down to day Nothing gold can stay. Johnny was comparing to that by telling him to stay gold.
