I’m reading Dear John by Nicolas Sparks. I think that this book mostly relates to my brother, because he is in college and had to leave his girlfriend in high school. They fell in love and my brother is a year older than her so he had to go to college while she was still in high school. They have gone through many rough times and they’re still together. No one thought that they would really last that long but they did and they’re still together, just like john and his girlfriend. Both of these people’s stories are actually very interesting and have many details but it’s truly amazing how things just seem to work out in the end. In the story John had to leave for the army and it must have been extremely hard for her to be way from him. When my brother left for college it also must have been very hard for his girlfriend. But they’ve had there ups and downs and have stuck together. I haven’t finished my book yet but I’m very interested to see what happens next.

I think that I’m getting enough of everything and I also learned that I need to drink more fluids. Everyone always says to drink a lot of water but I never listen. If I don’t start to drink more major injuries and bad things can happen to my body. The only time I do drink a lot of water is when I’m sick or when I’m playing a sport, I can prevent being sick from simply drinking water in the first place. A major thing that I learned from doing this assignment was that if I don’t do things now it will catch up to me in my future. My grandmother has very weak and fragile bones, she says from not drinking enough milk and not having calcium when she was younger. I’ve noticed recently that sometimes I will get headaches if I’m dehydrated and that’s a sign that I should be taking better care of myself by drinking more water. In this assignment, I learned that when people have exactly the right nutrition they feel happier and more healthy over all.
My writing and English skills have really increased and gotten better since the beginning of the school year. I feel like i’ve learned so much through all the activities we do in class. I really try to participate with everything we do. One of the skills i’ve learned is writing properly and being more creative in my writing. I also learned how to find the topic,evidence, and cliam to every piece of writing I read. Learning just that very skill has helped me to make more of an effort to put the topic,evidence,and cliam in my writing as well. Using the computers has become alot easier for me, and I feel like my typing has gotten alot better. When we use different websites and different sources of information, I can use them in other classes too. I’ve really taken advanage of using my time wisely in class when we work with computers. I really like that i can go to any computer and finnish assignments, I get most my work done in class, but it’s great to know that I can always finnish it at home. I learned how to do so many different things on the computer to help improve my work. I can always use those sources for anything and I feel like I can catch up to things very quickly now that I know what’s going on.
