Decisions are sometimes are hard to make, but sometimes you could make a decision carelessly. In the book Percy Jackson and the Lighting Thief, he makes decisions that could impact him later. For example, when he snapped at his teacher, blurting out a question, and pushing his classmate into a fountain.

In chapter 1, page 17, Percy had snapped at his teacher which made a very big deal. “Finally, when our English teacher, Mr. Nicoll, asked me for the millionth time why I was too lazy to study for spelling tests, I snapped. I called him an old sot.” This may impact him on his grades, or might even get expelled, which could possibly change his whole life. This also could affect his level of respect. Topic 2, article 1 states that “Be open and accept what’s going on around you.” This would help Percy to make a different decision that time, and maybe he could pick up English”

In the beginning of chapter 2, page 23, Percy couldn’t stand his friend Grover anymore “Finally I couldn’t stand it anymore. I said, ‘Looking for Kindly Ones?’” This plays a big role in the book, but this also might affect the relation between him and Grover. It also could impact his life and the other world. “Healthy relationships are a vital component of health and wellbeing.” Stated the second article in topic 3. Percy could have asked in another way, and then work out what is happening.

In chapter 1, page 9, Percy had some anger issues and “pushed” his classmate into a fountain. I tried to stay cool. The school counselor had told me a million times, “Count to ten, get control of your temper.” But I was so mad my mind went blank. A wave roared in my ears. I don’t remember touching her, but the next thing I knew, Nancy was sitting on her butt in the fountain, screaming, Percy pushed me!” This behavior will impact his learning because detentions from Mrs. Dodds. “The best decisions are made using both logic and emotion.” Stated in Topic 2, article 2. If he had done what he was trying to do; count to 10, then he would not “push” Nancy.

To summaries, Percy Jackson had made a lot of choices like calling his teacher an old sot, or asking something he’s not supposed to ask, to pushing a classmate into a fountain. Percy could make different decisions and improved them, or he could not do anything. Decisions are sometimes are hard to make, but sometimes you could make a decision carelessly.
