Future Job (Interior Designer)

I want to be an interior designer because I love to organize and design rooms in a creative way. I think I may write to Joanna Gaines from the show "Fixer Upper". I want to write to her because she seems like she has a lot of experience and all her designs are very creative.

Incident at Hawk's Hill

In class we are reading the book Hawk's Hill and I think the book will be interesting because I like to learn about history. The part of the book we read so far was pretty entertaining because it had something that was happening the whole time.

The War Of The Worlds/Fake News

In class we read a play called War of the Worlds. It was a very fun play, but I'm not that interested in science fiction, so it may have been more fun to other people. I hear fake news all the time, but I never believe it. It takes a lot to get me to believe something. I think that the NewsELA article and scope play were kind of interesting and had lots of facts in them.

Theme of The Tempest

The theme of The Tempest is probably to try and forgive someone no matter what they did because life doesn't last forever. It's not worth holding a grudge. I think this is the theme because Prosperous forgives his brother in the end because it is not worth it to hate someone for something they may regret.

The Tempest 10 Lines

In class we had to translate 10-15 lines of William Shakespeare's play "The Tempest". I chose lines 1,879-1890. The part was said by Prospero, and it was in Act III Scene I.

Quote:
"Our revels now are ended. These our actors, 
as I foretold you, were all spirits and
are melted into the air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capo'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temple, the great globe itself,
Ye all which inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, 
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep. "


Translation:
All conflicts are ended and the spirits disappeared: 
There are many places that you can see that are gorgeous
Everyone that is on Earth will live life and then
die. Live life to the fullest. We can dream
whatever and do as little or as much as 
we want.

The Tempest Part II

Today, we watched more of the Tempest and it was still very confusing. It was a little more understandable today, so I kind of knew what was going on. I am very excited to watch more of the play because I am starting to understand the play a little bit more.
