(Okay so I am a little frustrated because i had to re-type this but) Happpy Fridayyy!!! I am so glad that this week went by as fast as it did. I am so glad that we were finally able to finish the book To Kill aMockingbird. The book was a great read and I give it a 7-8 out of 10 on the Assigned Book Reading chart. I felt bad that the movie didn't quite have as many details as the actual book (however I have to admit details are expensive) but it was still interesting to watch. The parts of the movie that really captured my attention were the testimonies of Tom Robinson and Mayella Ewell. I think that those were the parts of the movie that emotionally drew people's attention and really made them realize the importance behind this story and how it affected other people's lives back during this time. I honestly can't wait until people see the play because hopefully people will walk away from it and consider maybe for just a moment, their actions towards others in one way or another, not saying that everyone does but who doesn't ?

So this week went by pretty fast for which I am soo thankful for because the homework has increased by like oh 110% say. Really though I cant be happier that the weekend is finally here but something tells me that I'm going to feel like this every week if this happens to be the normal amount =\. Well we read more of To Kill a Mockingbird and I gotta say this is the first book in which I have not fallen so behind that I need to catch up. Of course I dont know why but the book is interesting I know that much but what sets it apart from other books I guess I will never know. We have to read the last three chapters over the weekend >=\ . Im really gonna try but you already know that when we come back Monday theres gonna be people who didnt even read the like last chapter and I'm just sayin if people have to cram all of the reading on Sunday thats their fault but I got other HW and stuff to do so this might be the first thing that I do for HW . To be honest I would have rather watched the movie on a Monday cause I dont like coming to skool and a movie would have helped me get into the week better ... buuuut thats your decision so Im just gonna finish this i guess.

So this week has gone by fast thank the lord because if i fell asleep in any class one more time i would start bringin a pillow =\ . Its all good though because now im gonna have all the sleep i want this week wheeeeeeeeee!!!! So we're still reading To Kill a Mockingbird and its a good book i gottta say again ususally have to catch up on my reading cause i literally fall asleep if the book is too boring but the reading in class has definitely made it easier to read. The quizzes are like these little gift sentences from the book you fill in i mean to me they're so easy the words never seemed confusing to me at alll but i was known for having an obsession with words. I could telll what they meant without seeing them even once and even though when i read the book i felt like i was reading it for fun theres just thing you just cant forget and stuff you just dont remember . Either way its all good in english right now =D

So this week went by pretty fast we turned in that 500 point essay and now no more projects wheee!!! Now we're reading to Kill a Mockingbird which I personally think is gonna be a great book. I haven't seen the movie but i feel as if i wouldn't need to. I'm in the school play for To Kill a Mockingbird and the way the story sets itself up I couldn't wait to read the book. Now some people may say why read the book why not watch the movie but every movie that I've ever seen has no comparison to the actual book (except Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory starring Johnny Depp). Even though i pretty much know the outline of the whole story i still want to read the book because books always give images that only we can interpret in our minds and ours alone and it better understands our point of view when we read. Some people will never know that joy though cause they continue to "watch the movie " that's made from someone else's point of view =(. And I'm really glad that we get to read like a chapter in class to decrease the number of pages (Cause i have theatre afterskool and we tryin to perfect the play for y'all ) so I'm not so tired and the readings easier. I have to admit though i sometimes wish i could read more because its so easy to get into the book when you've seen one vision of it already and now you get the chance to have your own.This was a pretty good week overall ... Byeeee!! Oh and Go Lions!!! woot woot
