How have I changed as a reader & writer?

Was I ever a good reader? I never was. If I was not in Mr.Macknight’s class and had to write independent journal, I wouldn’t have read a lot. Since my first language is Korean, not English, and even though I’m in Language A, it is hard for me to read books in English. Moreover, expression is [...]

Independant Reading - The Mediator 4

Title: The Mediator 4

Author: Meg Cabot

Page: 336

After I finished reading ‘The Mediator 2′, I started reading this one immediately. Why did I skip book 3? I don’t have it. When I was reading book 2, I was always curious why Jesse (the ghost living in Susannah’s room) died, who, and why [...]

When I went to Korea this Chinese New Year, there was this movie called ‘Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief’ playing in the cinema. Since it is fantasy, I kinda thought it would be better to read first, and then watch the movie. [...]

looovvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeee poem lol

Recently, we’ve been analyzing some LLOOOVVEEEE poems. Since I don’t really enjoy reading poetry, whatever it talks about, I don’t like it. There’s only one reason why I am not interested in poetry. The writer plays with words, and for us, who are not native speakers, it’s very hard to understand. I am sure [...]

Shylock speech

From last week, we all chose what speech we will do this week. There were two choices, Portia’s speech and Shylock’s speech, and I decided to do Shylock’s. I don’t know why, but it was easier than the other one to memorize. It was not the only reason. In those words, I could see [...]
