Poem

Man Proposes, God Disposes 
Miroslav Kosek, Hanus Lowy 

I.
Who was helpless back in Prague,
And who was rich before,
He's a poor soul here in Terezin,
His body's bruised and sore.

II.
Who was toughened up before,
He'll survive these days.
But who was used to servants,
Will sink into his grave.

I'm feeling sad about this. It's sad that this person needs to go through this. Even other thousand or millions of people need to go through this. It's really unfair. No one should be treated horribly. Everyone wants to have a happy life. The people that were in the holocaust, they wanted to be set free and have a happy life.

Elementary to middle school

      Far back in 1st grade, I didn't know anything honestly. Every time a teacher points at a number and tells me to say it, I couldn't. I had a friend and her name was Karina. She was the only friend I had in first grade. She was really nice and funnny. Going ahead in 3rd grade, I knew how to say all the numbers. I knew my time tables and got all the answers right on the test which I think it was called "quick time". We only had a minute to do the test and I got all of them right. Moving on, 5th grade was kinda a great year. We went on field trips like to navy pier. That was when me and Samra started to talk to each other a lot. We knew each other since 1st grade but we really never talked to each other until 5th grade. I always hung out with her in indoor recess. When we entered 6th grade, Samra and I were very close friends. We couldn't separate from each other, we always have to be together. In 6th grade I was kinda improving in many subjects like for example math. 7th grade was the year of actual improvement for 8th grade. I did my best in 7th grade. I put my effort into it. 8th grade has came and I took two big tests to show if I improved or not. The test results came and said I improved a lot. I changed into regular classes. Now I'm with bigger classes for ELA. I am proud of myself for trying, trying, and trying. At once I wanted to give up. I told myself no and continued on to the journey.

SOL #13 When My Parents Found Out I know a lot about technology

     It was summer in a Saturday morning. Very hot outside. I was in my room on my phone watching some YouTube videos. I was very bored because my friend Samra went to Europe. I was alone. My mom and my sister were cleaning. My dad was at work. It was only 11am in the morning. We already ate breakfast. 5 hours had past. My dad finally came home. He wanted to pay some bills. So he went downstairs and went on the computer. He didn't know how to use it. So my dad called me down. I went downstairs and he said "Can you help me?" And I said "Yes!" I typed in the password to log in into the computer and went through the process to get to the website my dad wants to go on to pay his bills. He said "Wow you know a lot about technology" I said "Yeahh" Then my dad went upstairs and told everyone that he's noticing that I know a lot about technology. My family was saying that I should find a job that works with technology. It's a good idea. I'm actually joining TSI in high school. The bad thing is that I have to wake at 5am in the morning and then go to school at 6:45. I am not that kind of early morning person. Im kinda a early person but I wake up 7 or 8. Not 5 or 6 in the morning

Ghost Medicine

     A book I read is called Ghost Medicine. A 17 year old boy name Troy, before he turned 17, his mother died. He was very depressed because he barely talks to his dad. He mostly talks to his mom. Since his mothers death, he has been hanging out with his friends, Tom and Gabe. Tom is kinda a rude person and he is fearless. Gabe is just smart. Troy and his friend does not want any trouble. The summer was coming up, he wanted to call it the "ghost medicine". He wanted to call it the "ghost medicine" because for him it's just where everything stops. He doesn't need to face the past or the future. Before summer was over, he wanted to go on a dangerous adventure. That will change him and his friends life.

SOL #12 Summer School

     Before school ended I got a form saying if I want to go to summer school. At first I was like no maybe I shouldn't go to summer school. But then I remembered my friend Samra will be going to he summer. I would be alone. So I started to think about it and I finally changed my mind and said yes to summer school. Summer school only 7am to 12. It's short. I didn't know who was going to summer school. But st least I get to distract myself. When I went to the open house for summer school. I saw my favorite teacher, Mr.Delacroche (I don't know how to spell his name) he is a very nice teacher. There was posters up on the wall and I saw my best friend Marisol and Johnathans name on there. I was happy because I'm not going to be alone in summer school. First day of summer school was very great. I got to meet a lot of people. I loved how I get to wake up in the morning and see the bright sun. Then I get to come back home with a very bright sun. One day we got to do a competition and my table won. Mr.Bulster gave us ( Table mates) one of those big chocolate bar.

SOL #11 New Years party

     It was December 31st on a cold day. It's 6pm, my family and I were getting ready for the party. I was very excited to go to the party because mostly, all the years for New Years, I'm mostly home, while everyone is at a party with their family. The party I was going to, it isn't my family. It's my sisters boyfriend family. My sisters boyfriends family is really nice. They're very active. Anyways, when we were done getting ready, we went to the car and waited for my dad to finish. From there, we went to my sisters boyfriends family's house. When we went inside the house, there were so many people. We have to greet everyone. I was very shy to say hi to everyone but I did it. I met some people I have never seen before. After greeting everyone we went to the basement where there was so much space. Everyone started to get their plates and I didn't want to get my plate because I was shy to stand up in front of everyone. 15 minutes later I just got up because I was really hungry. We stayed at my sisters boyfriends house until like 2am. We came home very sleepy.

SOL #10 The time when I went to downtown with my friend

     It was August when I went to downtown with my friend Samra. It was very sunny hot day. School hasn't started yet. It was 2 days after when Samra came back from the UK. I was so excited to see her because I didn't see her for the whole summer (2 months). We did communicate when she was in U.K. Samras family came with us to downtown. My parents didn't go back they had to work. My sister Jocelyn, came with me. We went on a metra train. It's by Mac Neal hospital. Metra is way more faster than the green line station. We got to Union station in like 16 minutes. After the train dropped us off at Union Station, we walked through downtown and went to the stores.
