I will talk about the movie i saw yestarday. Yestarday i went to the movies with my friends, the movie called “new year”. It is a movie were the most recognized actors of the moment appreared with different papers. I dont know exactly the name of everyone but  i remembered who they are and where did they appear. For example Zac Efron, the one of “HIgh SChool Musical”;Ashton KUtcher, he appeared in ” Two and a Half men”; Sarah Jessica Parker, from “sex and the city”; and a lot more, for my friends it was a bad movie because they expect the best movie of the year, but for me it was a great movie.

What did you like best about the book? What was one thing you learned from it? Any other comments?

I’d never had read an english book before I entered to english advanced II. In other classes i also had to read books but i never read them. Thanks to Ms Andre i start reading. While a was reading the book i really like it. I made my own movie in my head, i create my own characters and places. That was anotare thing that i like about the book. The author knows how to make your imagination explodes. I learn some good things. Like the one to follow my passion, Jamal lo es to write and to read so he keeps doing that all time. That was the most important thing i’ve learned.

Tell me about a lesson someone once taught you. What was it? Do you think you’ve truly learned from it? Why or what not?

There was a time that i’ve do some things that they were very irrespectful. I dont want to talk about that specific thing but I want to talk how do i get fixed. When i was in 8th grade i was a caos. I never put attention class, I do whatever I want, some times I never do my homeworks. And finally a did something that makes the school a complete pandemonium. I put a bomb in one classroom, it explode and 3/4 of the school was destroyed. Im joking, i made things that the discipline person was so mad at me.

Write about a time someone stood up for you. Compare it to what William Forrester did for Jamal Wallace.

When I was in middle school i had a story very similar to Jamal’s story. Jamal was in problems because no one believes that he doesnt write the work, so later Forrester came to “save him” to be expulsed from Mailor Callow school. I was in 8th grade, in Colegio Ingles, i had a very big history essay, and one friend and I choose the same topic but we both didnt know that. So when we were doing the essay we took out information from the history book. We have very similar ideas about the essay. We gave the work to our teacher and later he tell us that we copied. Later one friend start fighting with our teacher, just to help us and finally he accept and believe us. And i get a 100 in the score.

What do you think it means to have an open mind about something? Do you thing we automatically associate some things or people with certain characteristics or ideas.

An open mind person is the one’s who accept people with other characteristics. To adapt very quickly to that situation. I think we automatically associate things or people just by the way theire clothes are or just by hearing a bit of a conversation. This depends on how do we look a person or a new relationship. The problem is that a non open person will not talk or just never create a new relationship
