I think that myself as a blogger has grown. At fist the thought of blogging, and the larger audience made me nervous. This kind of helped me with getting over worrying what people would think of me. It's easy to blog now and just state your opinion without worrying. I like that blogging is kind of just this open world. I think that it would be better if my opinions were longer (depending) so I could make a little more sense.
I think that poetry Friday was a great idea for the year. Its not that it has made me more confident in writing my own, but I have picked up on some skills and creativity. I think that this has made me more skilled and stronger of a poet. I think that if we continue to do Poetry Friday then i will grow a lot in my ability.
I would be very sad if I couldn't come back next year for this class. I think that this year has been extremely fun. There has been a lot of creative activities that we have done throughout the course of the year. I think that I would remember a lot of the Poetry Friday activities that we have done. I personally like poetry and I wasn't quite sure what the year would bring for it. I know that not many would agree with me on this one but I hope that next year we can do more on Shakespeare. So I can't wait until next year.
I am going to be reviewing the book: Catching Fire. This book was written by Suzanne Collins. This book is in first person from Katniss's point of view. The basic plot of this book is that Katniss (the main character of the first book) (The Hunger Games) is living her life as a victor. Ever since her cunning plan with the poisonous berries, her glistening, gold, mockingjay pin has become the symbol for rebellion, as is she. This book is not centering Katniss as much as the districts in general. Outbreaks have broken out and are combining to overthrow the capital, before the capital brings them all back into order. I liked Catching Fire because it was a very unpredictable reading and it always kept my attention. The first book of the series was also a very catching book and it set a great plot for the second. I think that this book would be great for later teens or adults. This book regards some more adult concepts, such as mutiny, slaughter, and forcing children into an arena for a fight to the death. This book is 391 pages (of greatness).
