Thomes (The Maze Runner)

Thomes is a person that will risk anything to help anyone, someone that is not even his friend. He is the perfect leader for the boys in the “Glade”. They use others life to trade for their survival. Thomes finally united the “Glade” and eventually found the way to leave the maze. Looking back to Gally, he wants the village to live with the grievers, but Thomes fights back and that makes him a good leader.

It’s for You Not for Me

The most common thing that people know about Asian parents is that they always wanted their kids to be better than them, so they are sometimes very strict. Like every other Asian parent, Wavely’s mom is exactly like all the others. She is strict, vanity and show-off.

One of the bad characters of the mother is that she sometimes has a very strong vanity. “Lost eight piece this time. Last time was eleven. What I tell you? Better off lose less!” I was annoyed, but I couldn’t say anything. (Tan,4) This looks like she is very strict right? But this is the not the main problem. The main thing that is making she strict is she has a strong vanity. She wants everything to be perfect. She doesn’t want any mistakes that other people can talk about. So, when she is going extreme she can act really strict. But even worse is after everything is perfect she shows it to others.

Another bad trait is that she likes to show-off. My mother would proudly walk with me, visiting many shops, buying very little. “This my daughter Wave-ly Jong,” she said to whoever looked her way. (5) Showing off is not bad, but the thing that you are proud of has to be yours. Like Wavely, she is not her mom’s personal belongings she has her own right. And her mom didn’t help Wavely improve in chess, so if she shows off like this then it is bad.

In conclusion, Wavely’s mom is not a bad mother, but just doing the right thing in a bad way. After she fixes some of her mistakes she will be such a good mom. “I am doing this for you, not for me.”

The Challenge of Grade 8 Humanities

  1. What are you looking forward to learning in GR 8 this year?

I am really looking forward to learning about the Chinese cultural revolution. I listen to people talking about this revolution a lot and I still don’t know it 100%, so I really want to learn this topic.

  1. What challenges will you face?

I just came to ISB last year so one of my weak spots is my spelling and writing. I usually work more on speaking and listening more before I came to ISB, so my skill in writing is pretty bad.

  1. What is your plan to meet these challenges?

Writing on day 1,3,5,7 is really helping me by the time I finish this my skill of writing grows. As long as I follow this plan by the end of the year I think my writing skills will improve a lot.

Narnia Prince Caspian C.S.Lewis

The story took place after a year after Peter and other four siblings returned to their world. The four of them during the holidays to school when sitting in the train station bench waiting for the bus, all of a sudden there was a special forces unit to pull them into Narnia. They learned that since they left Narnia, they had passed in 1300 years. The original Narnia younger brother of King Miraz stolen the throne, and killed his brother. Under his brutal rule, all the talking animals and elves were hidden. However, Prince Caspian, the son of the old king, longed to liberate Narnia. He fled the palace and found the old inhabitants of Narnia in the forest and got their support. The two sides failed to start fighting. Prince Susan’s magic horn sounded hopelessly outnumbered in time, Peter’s four brothers and sisters will return the world to help them. They led the animals and elves of Narnia to defeat the evil king, and Prince Caspian inherited the throne, and Narnia returned to the vitality of the past. At last Aslan appears and send Peter’s four siblings back to their own world. I like the parts when those talking animals and the elves were lead by the four siblings to fight against the king and helping Caspian to get the throne back, I was moved by there courage.
