testing animal blog

Do you think all animals should be treated the same? Why or why not? No because all animals are different and they all deserve the proper care for that specific animal.

Many companies use animals for testing various products. Do you think we should test on animals? Why or why not? No because I don't think it's fair that animals should have to suffer for being tested on products and then soon die if the product doesn't work.

Is it ok to test on some animals? Why or why not? No

If their was a drug that would potentially save 1,000,000 lives, would it be ok to test on animals in that situation? Why or why not? I don't know.

42 reflection

To me discrimination is not excepting someone in a group or not liking them for something that they do or how they look. When someone is being discriminated it really hurts them and it can effect them mentally because they might think they need to change something about them so they can fit in. Discrimination is not ok, but it dose happen and its apart of the world we live in. Discrimination happens for some of the dumbest reasons like for how someone looks, the color of their skin, or their actions.

Blog Challenge- March 22

Write about your closest friend OR write about a childhood friend.
One of my best childhood friends would have to be my first best friend. Her name is Michelle and I met her in 2nd grade, along with her cousin Emily. I remember on the first day we sat at the same table and we became friends ever since. We hung out a lot with each other. But she sadly moved in the summer going to 4th grade and I was devastated. I missed her so much, but I did make a new friend. After that we would only hang out once in a while. The last time I saw her, her sister, and cousin Emily was for her sleepover surprise Birthday party. I got to spend time with them and catchup on things. I hope that we can hang out soon because I really miss her.

Post a favorite quote.  Write about why this is meaningful to you.
My favorite quote is "One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain"- Bob Marley 
Its meaningful to me because music has been a big part in my life and I like all different types of styles of music. I like it because I feel like you can listen to any kind of music depending on your mood. To me it doesn't literally mean "hits you" instead I think it means, if theirs a song writer and they have an idea of what they want their song to be about it hits them and they end up making an amazing song for people to love and enjoy listing to.

Blog 12- Repetition


Reminds me of... 
Having to take a break
Need medicine
Risk of almost dying 
Make it easier for other tributes to kill you 

I think the author is trying to say that they will add something to make it more interesting for the audience if things getting to boring, thats what I think happens when someone gets hurt.

What are three things that you can't live without?
1. Music
2. food
3. Family/ love

Blog Eleven: Thinking...

Parts of the Hunger Games that I find the most interesting is how the other tribute from other districts actually paired up and became  the careers. The arena is also interesting to me and how they build it because they can add and take out things with technology. Also the love that Katniss and Peeta have is the most interesting to me because I feel like they started off by doing it for the cameras but as the Games went on they actually started liking each other just because they wanted to. I think she might of forgot about Gale at home she might have feelings for him again when she gets back.

The most interesting things in my book would probably have to be that the main character in my book lost her mother and now has to live with her grandparents. I like the way she is starting to show her story though out the book and how she goes from being shy at her new school to being happy and having friends. I also like the whole meaning behind the book because it has a mix between the two sides how one is funny and the other is more bittersweet, I think its a good match.

Something that bothers me in the Hunger Games is when we finish a chapter and the end of the chapter would make you want to read more. But other than that it would probably be that even though Katniss and Peeta are supposed to "love" each other I wish they would just tell each other or confirm it. Its like they do it for the camera then they do it because they just want to kiss. Like I wish they could just say that they really like each other or if they don't then maybe one of them would say they don't like then and then I think things would get really interesting.

One thing that bothers me most in the book I'm reading is that I feel like they haven't introduced more characters. I hope as I read on they will have more, but for the most part its a good book so far and hopefully they will have more characters.

What is your biggest pet peeve?  What most bothers you?

My biggest pet peeve is slow walkers or people who walk extra slow. It annoys me so much, especially because I'm a fast walker and when slow people are in front of me. It doesn't work out. Or sometimes their slow because their walking while being on their phone, because then I have to walk around them and sometimes theirs people next to them or theirs no room for me to walk around them.

Currently I'm...

Reading... Walk two Moons
Eating... Pizza 
Loving... Music
Hating... Morning alarms 
Smelling... Nothing 
Thinking... What I should do

Blog Ten: What is Love?

I think their love for each other is make up and for the cameras. I think this because they are forced to be in love and kiss each other once in a while. Before they went into the games Haymitch told them to do it for the audience because it would make them like them more. They were also told to kiss when they were the cave.

Blog 9: Survival

Survival to me is where you have live or keep living with the sources that you have. Like in the Hunger Games they have to hunt for food, find a place to sleep, look out for other tributes etc. They have to survive to win the games and fight each other off. But I think in the games they have to kill each other at some point.

If I ran the world...

If I ran the world I would not let Donald Trump run for president and people would be able to eat what ever they want and not gain weight. People will be allowed to be who they want to be and no body can say anything about it. I would want to prevent all problems in the world and just be happy. People would help each other and be kind to one another.

What is the biggest "fib" (lie) that you've ever told?

To be honest I can't really remember the biggest lie I've ever told. Im not saying that I don't lie or never told a lie, believe me I have, but I'm not sure which one in the biggest.

Blog Eight: Lying

I don't think lying is always wrong because you could be lying in a good way or trying to protect someone. But that doesn't always work out, the person you're lying to may find out. I feel like you should always be telling the truth because it shows people that your honest. I also think you have to control how you tell the truth and how many lies you tell. If you tell to many truths people may think your a bit mean because your saying the things that shouldn't be said and should just be kept to your self. If you tell more lies and one day you tell the truth people won't believe you or you may be saying the truth but they won't buy it because they are so used to you telling lies. It is used in The Hunger Games when Katniss said she wouldn't leave Peeta and go get the bag but, she lied to him when she made him fall asleep.

A way to cure my sadness is music. Music is the one thing that clears my mine in so many ways. I love how their is so many different types and styles. I like to listen to music depending on my mood or where I'm at. Another thing to take the stress of me is to sleep or taking a nap. For me sleeping is relaxing and it helps me forget about what I was thinking or dealing with. One last thing to get things off my chest but not really wanting to talk to people about it is to write it down in a journal. Its where I keep all of my thoughts in and just write what I'm feeling.

Something that really scares me is death. I don't like thinking about it, seeing it, or knowing about it. It something that I have been afraid of for a while. I just feel like the thought of it makes me scared and worried. I know its going to happen eventually but I just have so many questions about it. How it feels like or what happens after it and where you go? I wonder how it feels like like does it feel like sleeping? I wonder what to think if you know you are going to die. I don't like thinking of it because it gives me the chills. Their is just something about it that I don't like. I know this may be a serious topic but it really is one of my biggest fears.

Blog Seven: HG Chapters 15-16 Reflection

Chapters 15 and 16 felt like there was a lot of communication between Katniss and Rue. They are now friends and made their own pack just the two of them. They are helping each other with food and treatments. I think they make a good team together, they each have resources that they can exchange and learn from each other. I though it was nice of Katniss let Rue join her. I like the way they look out for each other, especially the way she cares for Rue like if she was Prim.

 The part that shocked me was when the got bit three times by a tracker-jackers and she already started to hallucinate. I would have thought that it would take more before it started.  Also when they had the idea to blow up the careers food and supplies. I thought that it was a risky move because who knows what could happen.

Blog Six: Setting

The setting is important to the plot in the story because it takes place in the arena with trees, lakes, grass, and green patches. Its also important because the game makers are the one who are controlling it and they can change it up by adding things. The game makers to things to make it interesting and what the audience wants to see. They also need to have the right sources to survive, unless sponsors give them some or the game makers provide it. 

It would be different if they told the story in a different setting because then the way they did things would be different. If the setting was a place without trees Katniss she would not be able to climb them and hide from the careers. If it took place in the desert they would have to get food and water more often. They would have trouble hunting and people would die faster. If it was a cold setting they would need warm clothing and shoes. It would change everything they did because of their actions to a different setting.

Blog 5: Dear President Snow

 Dear President Snow,  

I believe that the Hunger Games should be abolished. I think that if you are going to have these games to fight for food then you should just give all the districts what they need to make them all equal. I feel like some people are just doing this to watch other families suffer watching and finding out that their loved one is dead. I understand that maybe think that they should fight for what they want but only one gets to win. Some of the tributes know that they won't stand a chance in the first day. 

I wonder how you and other people involved feel about this, seeing other people die, knowing the fear that you put them it. I wish other people knew why you are doing this. Do you do this for other peoples entertainment? Then why! Why is it that you put all these people and their families in so much pain, fear, and the tributes in starvation having to survive and not knowing if they are going to make it out alive!

Blog One: Hunger Games intro.

So far I think The Hunger Games is a good book. I think its better than the movie because it has a lot more detail and I kind of understand the book better, also because with the book I feel like you can take your time to think about what you've read if you didn't understand. I like the way they describe the characters and I feel like you get to know them better. In the book they tell more about what the characters are think and how they feel and in the movie you don't really get to see that.

Blog 3: Fashion

What do the outfits we wear say about us?
I think they say a lot about us because it all depends on what you like and your style. I also think it shows off your personality and what your interested in.

How to our clothes tell people what to think bout us?
If someone is a simple person they might dress more casual where as someone who has an outgoing personality might dress more confident and edgy. Even though people don’t really know who you are they can kind of get an idea of who you are by what your wearing.

How come clothes have too much power in people’s minds?
Because people will take one look at you and think something about you that’s not true based on what you’re wearing. If someone see’s you wearing something that they don’t like or doesn’t look right they might think that you don’t know how to dress or you don’t know what clothes are “in”.

What are our motivations for wearing certain kinds of clothes?
Some people wear certain clothes because they may have see a celebrity or a model wearing a specific shirt or pair of shoes.  Also when a celebrity is sponsored or has a new clothing line with a brand it makes people what to buy them.

Who tells us what clothes mean?
I don't think anyone can really tell us what clothes really mean, everyone has the freedom to wear what they want and people can't really tell them whats right and wrong.
