The movie God grew tired of us. It is about these boys trying to get away for the war. They all grow up in a camp that helped them out the they found out that some of them were going to Amarica. When they get on the plane they got some food and they eat every thing sepritly even the butter and relish. But when they really got to the us they went to their apartment that they would sty at for a while and they looked at everything really weird. they didn't know ow to use anything. But after a while they got to know how to use every thing.
I think i kinda connects to long way gone because the boys in the book were trying to get away form the fighting and the boys for god grew tired of us were doing the same thing.
The cultulre diffrances between the us and africa. one is Christmas in Africa the dance around and sing. but in the us we give gifts and put decerations and a wole bunch of stuff.

"Once the camp was in sight we would surround it and wait for te lieutenant's command. The rebels roamed about; some sat against walls, dozing off, and others passing around marijuana."
This reminds me of the movie Rambo 5 when Rambo and 6 other army guys that were sent to get prisoners. They came into the villiage at dark and they were people smokin' weed and people in the watch towers. but they got in the place and pulled out the prisoners.
I think Rambo 5 is a good movie but I can stop watching it. But Ishmeal can't; it's his life and he just can't pause it and go off and do something else. I could but that's his life; it's not a movie.
If Ishmael was in this country he wouldn't even be able to watch the Rambo movies because he is only twelve years old. He wouldn't even to be able to own a gun let alone be in the war.

"carriers of the dream wheel" By. N. Scoot MomdayThis is the wheel of dreams
which is carried on their voices.
By means of which their voices turn
And center upon being.
It encircles the first world.
tis powerful wheel.
they shape their songs upon the wheel
And spin the names on the Earth and sky.
The aboriginal names .
They are old men' or men
who are old in their voices.
And they carry the wheel among the camps
Let us tell the old stories
let us sing the sacred songs
This connected to the book because all the Indians follow their dreams but they don't anymore because their always getting drunk and fighting. but the older indians are still kinda following their dreams and trying to make every one else do the same.

My reading in the beginning of the year my reading kinda stunk but as the year went on I got better and better at reading. It was not because I didn't want to read it was because it took me weeks to read a book. But I started reading more and I got better at it. But the SSR helped me out because we got about 20 minutes and we did that every class it just helped me out a lot.
But for my writing I think I need a little tougher then we did this year but it has to be fun not boring. But all my writing in my english class is fun.
This year was a kinda fun. A couple of the projects were fun like the Monster project and the vignettes. The Monster project was kinda fun because I got to work with my hands. We got to draw and build. The book was alright. But I liked when he was telling about what he learned jail house slang. He tells his mother That some people has done a calender with means they have done a year in jail. He goes to court and tries to get out of jail but if he can he will be in for life for being an accomplice for the guy who shot the store clerk.
But I think the vignettes were the best because they brought me back to my childhood and I miss being little because I liked to look up to most people. Plus it just brought me back to the best times of my life. But I had too much fun with the vignettes. I just feel like I want to do more but at the same time I don't because I might want to go back to being a little kid again. But the vignettes I will probably write vignettes every once and a while.
