English 7 Lesson 10 Essay

My favorite book is one that I just read recently. It’s a whole series, and I had only bought the first two just to see if I liked it. Turns out I did and I got the other three books this Christmas. This book comes high up on my recommendation list as well as the Percy Jackson series and the Harry Potter series. This series is called The Maze Runner, and if you haven’t read it then I suggest you do. I’ll be summing up the first book in the series. 

It begins with Thomas in this elevator thing and he can’t remember anything but his name. He doesn’t remember  his family,  his friends, or even where he lived. Then the elevator or the box as it’s called by the Gladers, (which you’ll meet in a minute,)  the box stops moving and the top is opened up only to reveal all these boys in their teens staring at Thomas.  The leader shows him around and Thomas notices that they have their own slang. 

Thomas is very smart but he does dumb things. He’s already on one of the Keepers’ bad sides. Then he wants to be a runner, runners go into the gairt maze and try to find a way out of the glade. Then one day the leader of the Gladers and the Keeper of the Runners goes out into the maze to amazon a dead Grievers, (Grievers are scary monsters that live in the maze, but they only come out at night when the doors of the maze are closed) But it wasn’t dead. When the doors are about to close Thomas runs to help the Keeper of the Runners carry the leader of the glade because he got stung by the ‘dead’ Griever. And he gets stuck in the maze. 

He survives the maze and the next day the box comes up again, but it isn’t supposed to. It was too early for needing more supplies and they already had a Greenie (Thomas, that’s what they call newbies). In the box was a girl and a note that said that she was the last one to come up from the box. 

After the girl shows up things start to fall apart. Long story short, almost all of the Gladers end up going in the maze, and they think that once they’re out of the maze that they’re free, but they’re not. 

And that’s the end of book one.       

History 6 Lesson 5 Essay

If I was there at the Tower of Babel when God confused the people by changing their languages, I think that mine would be Ancient Greek, and once I’ve found others who can speak my language, we would travel to ancient Greece. Not gonna lie ever since I read the Percy Jackson book series, I’ve wanted to travel to Rome and Greece. And I actually plan to after I graduate from college travel with my best friend and we’re gonna travel the world for a bit before we get the jobs that we want. Because we live in a small town and not many of the kids wanna leave and said that they will probably get jobs there, now i love my home town but I don’t plan on living there. I plan on living somewhere far away, and only coming back for a visit of two, or  three days, or one day. 

For Real The Last English Thing

So I forgot about my Research Report I had to do so here it is and now for real I’m done with English.

My English Research Report

Apache Indaians 

So before I get into the  Apache Indians. I was originally gonna do native indians tribes in New Mexico because that’s where I live but then I decided to just focus more on the Apaches.

There are 23 Indian tribes in New Mexico but I’m only gonna talk about one Apache. Historically the Apaches were very powerful. They  constantly fought the invading Spaniards and Mexicans for centuries. The U.S. Army found them to be fierce warriors and skillful strategies. 

Hunting and Gathering 

The women were known for their ability to find and prepare food from many different plant sources. They did most of the gathering unless there were heavier plants involved.   

The Apache got food from four different sources. Hunting wild animals, gathering wild plants, trading with neighboring tribes for livestock and agricultural products or raiding the neighboring tribes. Their hunting was done usually by men, however sometimes exceptions were made depending on animal and culture. The most common weapon  that was used to hunt with was the bow and arrow. 

Clothes

They wore animal hides decorated with seed beads. They made buckskin shirts, ponchos, skirts, and moccasins. They decorated them with colorful beadwork.  

Housing

They Apache live in three different houses. Teepees which were common in the plains, Wickiups common in the highlands, if a family member died it was burned. Apache of the deserts of northern Mexico live in a Hogant.

An Extra Thing

Skinwalker Legend 

Ok, so my dad told be about this and now I have an obsession with the Skinwalker Legend and now the Wendigo but I’m gonna focus on the Skinwalker legend, it’s not an Apache legend but the Apcahe’s destan cousins, the Navajo!

So Skinwalkers are usually someone who was abosstated in witchcraft and the most common form they took when they changed was the coyote but they can be other animals too. I’m not gonna go into much detail about it but that’s basically it. But I suggest you look up more if you want to. There’s not a lot on Wikipedia about the legend but it’s still very interesting.

English 6 Lesson 180

First I wanted to say, I meant to post this sooner but I went to Arizona National for a public speaking contest. And we spend New Year’s at my mom’s cousin’s house. Also it’s now 2022! Not Gonna lie I’m not ready…so there was this thing that my mo saw and she shared it with us and we said Jumanji. Instead of happy new year and here’s why.

OH! One more thing before we get to my essay. This is my lat one, and I don’t know when I’ll be starting English 7.

Writing is important to me because I love to write. This Class has helped me write speeches that I use for Prepared Speaking contests. It helps me with the books I’ve started to write, and the short stories that I write that sometimes I post on my school blog.

English 6 Lesson 175

This year I learned a lot and it has helped me with writing my stories. My two favorite books were The Railway Children by E. Nesbit,  The Cat of Bubastes by G. A. Henty, A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys by Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Tanglewood Tales by Nathaniel Hawthorne. All of those books were old timey and something different than what I usually like to read so I’m glad I had the opportunity to read them. This whole course was fun and I learned a lot. 

History 5 Lesson 180

Before I start the Essay I just wanted to say that this is the last lesson for History 5, I don’t know when I will be starting History 6 but I’m enjoying my break from a least one subject.

Throughout both courses of this History, I have learned to take very good notes on things. Especially for when I have to write my essays. I’m The Secretary for the 4-H Council, and for my club. As well as the Secretary for my FFA Chapter, and thanks to this course, I’ve learned to take notes and picea those notes together to make something. I’ve learned a whole lot from this course because I find myself watching movies that have to do with historical objects and I see something I learned about from History. I started telling my parents about it. Sometimes they are shocked, other times they give me more information about the invention. Especially the ones that have to do with agriculture, because my mom is a Highschool AG teacher.

An Idea, Let’s See Where It Goes

This is a stupid name for this post, but I’m not feeling creative, besides I do have an idea and I want to see where it goes. So there is this big black dog hanging around our house for the past couple of days. He’s been eyeing out goat. So obviously he’s probably trouble. I don’t was him to eat out goat. Anyway, a couple of days ago he was sitting up on one of the hills at our house, I swear he was watching us. He was just sitting there his ears perked up. Have I mentioned that he was big? I think I did but just in case I’m saying it again. That’s not the creepy part, the creepy part is that a few crows were circling him. So then I got this idea for a story, yes, I get idea’s for stories in the most random and sometime creepy situations. Can you blame me though? I think this will be a good one. I’m not sure yet. Ok, by now you are either bored with what I have to say or your thinking get on with it. Well my idea is what if this man and his wife just moved into the man’s father’s ranch and on that ranch there was this dog, well what if the dog haunting them, because of something the man’s family did years ago. But only members of that family can be haunted and if they are currently staying or living at that ranch. Anyone else who lived at that ranch was fine. And I know I said that I would work on that one zombie apocalypse story thing I had going but, I think I might give up on it and work on this short story. Now here’s the thing, should I post what I have of the story written so far? Do you the people who chose to read this want a sneak peak of it? Comment if you do, if you don’t then I shall leave it a mystery   until I’ve written all of it. *Evilly laughs as I disappear into the darkness and into my hobbit hole which I  chose to come out from*

I don’t know why I put that but I thought it would be funny. I think one of my other personalities took over. Which personalty you may ask? The one with a very bad taste in humor.
