Best time to read a boom.

I truly think the best time to read a book is when it js raining. Right now its storming and I feel as if it would be perfect to curl in jammies and hot t ea to drink. Its perfect to read a romance or adventure.

Some of my favorite readings for this class was poems. The shortness and way they are wrote just seem to make me smile and I could read poems on and off all the time. Sometimes they are really cool and other times I just have to turn my head to the side and really think about what was going on in the poem. Like the Storm poem. It was really cool and I enjoyed it but I had to read it a few times to get it through my head. Especially to get the meaning. I was picturing everything as if first but then I looked further into it and really saw what the meaning of the story. What I felt like was that the author was saying sometimes we just have to ride out the storm because everything will get better. I really took that to heart because I've had a hard time this semester getting use to everything. I've been in school for years and becoming tired. I've also started a full time job that seems to be sucking all my time. So I've been craving the summer and to get rid of one stress. Don't get me wrong I love school, especially English, but I needed to concentrate on one thing. But I've been able to get through this semester successfully.

Red Badge of Courage

When I read this story I really thought of saving Private Ryan. Even if the scenes didn't match up Indy head that's what I saw when reading. Both were about wars and a adventure. The main guy in the story went through a tough time as did the man in the movie.

Great Gatsy

I was excited to see this coming out after reading the book. I didn't exactly enjoy the book because I found it boring from time to time so I want to see this when it comes out. How close will it be to the book? So many questions. The biggest one is wondering if they will ruin it like all the other films that were based on books. However there are some books that had some awesome movies named after them. But not a lot. Twilight series isn't one of them. I'm hoping Great Gatsby either is equal to the story or better. Only time will tell.

EE Cummings poem about America really makes me smile because there is so much glory in the poem. He really likes America. The poem really made me sing part of it because when I read the words. Being raised to sing the National Anthem whenever I read it really has taken a toll. Music has always made me smile so it really just left me singing the entire thing.

Dance Dance!

I love dancing so when I had a chance to read about dancing I jumped on it. When given the picture to contrast and compare, it made me think of this video. I love the Step Up series so when I was reading the poem, I was reminded of this. This is a video of a dance in a art museum. It's really pretty. It's all about being yourself and expressing yourself much like the picture and the poem. My favorite part of this is the ballerina dance. I love their tutus. But it really makes me thing of the dance they had described in the poem.

The Storm

This passage really shocked me in the least when I read it. Before I had it an was slightly confused but then I reread it. Upon re-reading it, I really saw something in it. It was like the saying about everything gets better after the storm. I really felt like everyone needed a storm to refresh their spirits and outlook on like. The love tryst is really what got me. The way they just seemed to need a time to restart everything and then go on to their lives before.
