American Born Chinese Reflection

Throughout the few chapters of the graphic novel American born Chinese, it is split into three main stories theme of identity, friendship, and personal changes. The theme of this book covers how people still have stereotypes base upon their race, and the second main part is legendary folk tale of Sun Wukong, or The Monkey King.I would strongly recommend this novel, in regards of the diversity of stories and knowledges being learned. I also like the book seperation into two parts evenly, so it grasp people’s attention into reading more as it makes the audience motivated.

Reflection #2

The book that I’ll chose to write about is also counting by 7s because base on the chapters I read I understood that the protagonist is not gregarious to any of her age group, and other people doesn’t really like her because in there view point she is so “weird”. However, everyone is different so what triggers to me the most is that acceptance is what we all have to learn through the process of maturity. Even if people is trying to strike her, nothing really effects from the motivation of being who she is shows nothing is more significant then who you are as an individual.

Reflection #1

The current book that I am reading is called counting by 7s. Through the chapters I read, what strikes me the most is that willow, the protagonist likes to analyze her surroundings in an extraordinary way. For example, in chapter 6, page 33 when she was meeting with her behavior counselor named dell duke, they were suppose to talk about his test scores due to the suspicion by the principle. Instead, she was analyzing why is dell duke so fat and trying to find the volume of one jelly bean but he figured the formula doesn’t work since is not a perfect cylinder, but if something doesn’t work she always like to count my sevens.Adding on, her parents died because of a car accident so what she is doing can stimulate his happiness is important because pessimistic can’t lead you anywhere. The importance of this is that ourself as an individual is the only one who could actually find ways to stimulate our own happiness. The words used by the author allows the reader to picture the image clearly, the language sometimes is written in an exaggerative way by using rhetorical questions and the tone of word choice to create meaning.

Final Reflection Book #S1

Throughout the semester, I read about 2 books called This is a love letter and counting by 7s. Counting by 7s is my favorite book that I read throughout the semester because the 20 chapter I read I realized that Willow, the protagonist is a little different from others and that is what makes him special, and by excepting is always the most important part. After, her family died she noticed she is the only one who could advocate for her own happiness.

Lesson learning for Everthing, Everything

From what I have read so far, I believe that the author Yoon is trying give us the reader, an insight into the life of a girl Maddie who has severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). This sickness leads to her staying in the same place her whole life, as she might get infected if she goes out to the outside world. The title indicates to me that in the world we won’t get everything, or experience everything in life. The author, I believe, is trying to emphasize that the world and life can be unpredictable, and we never know what is going to happen. I think she is trying to inform us that in the world every person is equal in different aspects, but everyone may experience life in a different way. This book fits in to the genre of young adults book in my opinion because it teaches you lesson of life such as empathy. My favorite character is Madeline because she is brave, even though she has an illness, it doesn’t allow her to drown in sorrow, and self-pity. Which I admire, and believe people should should be like this to confront ostacles.

Independence Obstacle

I am one of the colonist during this revolution. I couldn’t imagine the twenty years is rocky.Sometimes we feel dismay for loosing and sometimes we just feel the bright future is just a little way apart. However, Over the course of the Revolution I am really pleased with the changes after we become united.Although, throughout the American revolution there was couple of aspects that did not change. The changes were:

1.The Civil Rights movement of 1950s and 1960s pushed the government to end legal discrimination against Africans Americans.
Finally redeemed promised that all the people have right of liberty.

2.Laborers could and farmers vote if they own things.

3.Native Americans were even worse. (British keep the colonies away Indian lands, Sided with British During the war.)

4.Thomas defeated Adams in presidential election.
P.S. They eventually became the political parties and the three people the federalists Jefferson, Madison, and allies were the Democrats today.1800

I think the course the American had more freedom after Thomas take place off election and after the Independence Obstacles. The freedom is more reasonable because it doesn’t matter if you are rich or high position but if you own something you could vote. I believe the owner have the say in their property.

Continuity:
1.Women are still under their father’s power, no right to vote.
2.Hundreds and thousands of black was still known as slavery.
3. The Northwest ordinance has decided in 1787 to make the law that new state that should be equal as the original one.

Personally I agree with the third continuity because it shows the importance of equality and every peoples thought should be heard but I disagree with the first one because the women should have right to say even though it might not be listened but every decision is important for consideration.

Independence Game Process

The video mainly introduces the key events occurred during the American revolution that is the major event that leads to Americans independence. They went through many battles but the Americans win all of there turning point battles and the Americans didn’t loose as much as the British. However, at the end of the treaty in Paris Americans received independence and they accepted to pay back things owned by British merchants . Overall, the process sometimes was  brutal but the outcome is beneficial to the Americans even though it is exhausting sometimes. Click and understand more about the Revolution and enjoy the few minutes journey.

 

 

Imbecile signed the Soviet-pact

Stalin has taken control; he will definitely understand his foolish action. He already knows that two country don’t trust him. What’s the point of an alliance with Hitler? He is uneducated and I am wondering can he distinguish what is something that is a right decision to executed.
In 1928, Stalin implemented his first five-year plan. Everything went well and Stalin decided to shorten into four years. We all wanted Russia to become a better nation, but I am don’t understand why Stalin is rushing and threatening people for consequences to go to the Gulags? Someone should tell him to not rush the horses. I am petrified to follow his steps; everyone is hoping to get through and not get punished with a negative mind because we can’t expect what the future would be like.
You know in my neighbor Alexei was dragged out by the secret police kicking and screaming while his wife was begging them to stop with choking on her tears? He accused of doing something irrelevant and we do not know what will occur in the miserable place. The bad condition in the camp is not what we can imagine. Nearly 300,000 prisoners were set to work on the Belomor Canal as they promise they will be set free when it was completed. The special unit for the Gulag called Dalstroy, for construction trust and was set up for the mining in Kolyma. As the prisoners reaching to destination by traveling through the sea, they were taken there in ocean-going convict ship 12,000 at a time. Afterward by working long hours in different kinds of weathers they completed the canal in May 1933.If you fail the norm you get worse food than the people who succeed. The worst you only get thin soup and 400 grams of bread twice a day. As a consequence, by 1938 20 percent of the Zeks died and we can imagine his hastily decision isn’t the best for succession because for people to suffer is not his victory.
FoStalin was threatened by Kirov because he was most moderate member of politburo and he was rival to Stalin’s supreme leader. 1934 December, Kirov was shot by Leonid Nikolayev who is a young communist. Although, we think nothing is official, but we all know that Stalin is behind this. Borisov was mostly with Kirov so they assassinate him without noticing. As a result, Three years later it leads to the Great terror, During the Great Terror, a truly horrible time in our history, we all felt great fear. Stalin, who had locked the country under his iron fist, became extremely paranoid and was terrified that people within his own Communist Party would try to overthrow him. He felt, incorrectly, that commoners, with influence from foreign powers, would try to execute him and take his power. This paranoia made him crazy and no one was safe from his obsession with sweeping away the deadwood in the party. He executed, spied on or imprisoned hundreds of thousands of his own Communist supporters, right from the base farmers all the way up to leading Governmental figures. The Great Purge meant that no one felt safe, neighbors would report neighbors, families would report families and I even feared my own brethren might turn me in if I whispered something not in support of The Man of Steel.

Every event is like the waves that goes big and peaceful. Tsar going to the front to protect the country within his power to stand up to the enemy, The Tzar abdicated because people do not encourage him, starting to except Lenin by his intelligence on knowing how to role a country. One thing he said that carved in my mind: On step back words to captilizem and in the future two step towards communism. Sadly, now with Stalin that has no empathy in people and make people suffer by not catching his step to the five-year plan. Why would he kill kirov that is a good rival to Stalin’s position? If he really wants the country to better, he should really do something instead of only doing something that people do not agree and thinking people is threatening him by being popular. Stalin, the imbecile, he should not find allies that doesn’t trust him at first. Also, Poland was split into half and German took the lost provinces lost in 1918. However, we all want peace but with wisdom. Stalin think the hands don’t reach, he always think he doesn’t have time where slowly and precisely is going to end up better than what he did.

Rocky CNY Embellishment

Design Project has come to an end.I liked my design, even though we went through some obstacles.I was repressed by the time limit we have to make an appealing Design.I hope my Design is successful in others perspective as I believe it is as well, so it makes people satisfied during the CNY period when they walk by.On thing I’d like to change is have more flowers/better quality and create an Unique 2020 number Design with rat on the number 0 plus a house we decided, but the lack of time made us change our mind. one thing I would like to ameliorate is to make better qualities and more flowers, 2020 unique number Design and a house as we planed before to make more people admire.

Additionally, better picture of the CNY festival. I Believe I did not have a lot of patience to make the flowers more outstanding because we started late so we have to consider the time.However, My Biggest success was to create a CNY Project that is me and my partner did not go well at first, but we put effort to create this project. Happily, we cooperate better at the end, the most significant thing is to work well and share your decisions with your partner with patience so the outcome of this team work will have a better result.My Biggest Obstacle is not enjoying working with my partner at first and we had argument towards different perspective on what we want to Design and thoughts. I hope if there is another opportunity I would communicate better with my partner so everything goes more smoothly.I couldn’t forget to mention, One piece of advice I would give for a future student doing this project is to be circumspect on every detail you are working on because if you want to make it well looking and precise, patience is important.

Last but not least, observe your partner or others on how did they create things with good detail to absorb things you admire, to help open your thoughts. The tip I gave to the other student probably I didn’t succeed, but I want the future student to do better then me, so they can exceed.

Feedback from Mrs. Gravelle:
She said that it was very good and I asked her to be more descriptive.
However, She said it was aesthetically pleasing and well crafted.

This makes me happy that we made a successful product.

Boxer and Foreign Debate /No Harm, No Revenge.

The Boxers do not deserve a bad rap. Since The missionaries were the one that started to westernize China, They are forcing the Chinese to believe that their religion is better. However, the Chinese were just defending their own perspective, believing they did not need foreigners to cause an effect to them. When they started threatening the foreigners by cutting the railroad etc, is because what they brought to China is not what China wanted, and believed they are better, even though they revenged the foreigners by not letting them leave the certain area, and travel to other place of China, but the Boxers want the foreigners to understand that they are helping China. Defending for their own perspective is not as wrong as they were to give harm towards China. The Boxers had a good prestige with normal Chinese people.The Boxers were not the ones who started the conflict, they were the ones to prevent the foreigners from doing what China thought caused a bad impact on their society.
