Identify a Good Read

The read, “Is It Ever Too Late to Pursue a Dream” is a very encouraging read. You should always try your best in everything you do and it won’t come easy but just keep working at it and you will see the improvement. Dan Stoddard is a 42-year-old who is trying to Pursue his Dream that he has always imagined doing. Do you have a Dream? If you did what would it be? Now I am going to tell you the dream that Dan Stoddard had.

Dan Stoddard was a 42-year-old man who was wanting to play basketball at a college in Ontario. He wasn’t a good basketball player at all during his first time out there but he had told his coach,” I will work at it really hard until I become good.” To Dan, it didn’t matter if he had not become a good basketball player he just wanted to go down fighting. He was a very determined man who wanted to pursue his dream but his dream to lots of people seemed impossible. A 42-year-old man playing basketball at a college level just didn’t seem realistic. He had the determination to become a good basketball player but in order for him to do that, he had to get his body in shape to be able to keep up with college players.

He was working for a bus company and was working long hours. Going to school, playing basketball, working out, and work his job was a lot to handle. there weren’t enough hours in a day for him because he wasn’t getting enough sleep and if you don’t get enough sleep you will not perform very well.  It didn’t help that he was also 6 foot 8 and 325 pounds. When he was done a basketball game or work his ankles would look like watermelons and he just could go any further. He had pushed through the pain and would keep pushing his body to the limit. He couldna get enough sleep or food or time in a day to do anything and he was always just done he couldn’t go any further every single day.

Even though he couldn’t go any further still wanted to keep going. He had lost 150 pounds in one year and he was hoping to lose 200 before graduation. He was hoping to make the NBA and when he was asked by someone,” Do you think the NBA will want to take someone that will be 42 and he replied with,” Yes I do if they are good enough. He was one of the most determined guys the coach has ever seen in his life and he said,” that kid never gives up, even if he is behind everyone a lot. That was Dan Stoddard Dream and the only thing he wishes he would have done differently was that he would have done it sooner.

Most of the time we are too scared to try out are dreams but why? If we love it just do it. That is what Dan Stoddard had done and look at how it turned out for him. He had gotten into better shape than most people his age and he had loved every minute of it. Someone I know tells me when the sport you love he says,” You will miss the feeling of being tired and sore and not able to get out of bed because when you can’t do those things it means you gave it your all.” So never give up on your dreams and don’t hesitate to just do it.

Time Travel

Time travel is a mystery that would be amazing to figure out someday. Lots of people would choose to probably go back in time to see their ancestors or how it was back then. Others might think it is cool to go to the future and then come back and invent something from there. Everyone is going to have their opinions on what would be cooler to travel to but for me, I would love to back in time.

The past might seem not as fun because some people will say ” it has already happened so why would you want to go back and see it” but for me, that would be so cool. I would first want to go and see the time of the Aztecs. The Aztecs history is so cool and I would love to see the town that they had because back in that time they were the most powerful people and it would be cool to see how much power they really had. They were a very cool culture and it would have been amazing to see if their tribe was still around these days. that is why I would like to go back in time to see the Aztecs.

I would then love to as a second choice to like to visit the Renaissance because that is the age where they had discovered sp much new ideas and land. I f I could go back right now I would because I could then find the land and invent some of the machines they did. That time was so cool because they had discovered the ” New World.” They had only known about the area they were in and it would be awesome to find new lands like that because you would be famous. That is why I would like to go to the Renaissance.

The last place I would go to is World War 2. World War 2 has so much history and it is the biggest war this world has ever seen. If I could go back in time and figure out how to stop the Nazis. I would have loved being able to stop the Nazis because they were a terrible group and for the Jews well lets not even go there. I would have figured out how to stop the Nazi and I would know there every move so it would make it much harder for them and the war wouldn’t of last so long. That is why I would love to go back in time to World War 2.

Those three-time events are huge is history and would have been very cool to see. Sure it would have been cool to see what our future would look like but to me, If I went back into the past I know what is going to happen and I could help millions of people and become famous. To me, that is better than just seeing what our future will be like. That is why I choose the past.




I love my life and I love where I am right now but have you ever wondered if you could just snap your fingers and go any place in the world that you wanted. If I had three places in the world that I could go to it would be Cape Town South Africa, Cuba, and Rio Brazil. All these places I find very interesting and they are all very warm which I like. These are some of the reasons why I would like to go to these three places in the World.

Cape Town in South Africa is the second most populated place in South Africa. It is also the legislative capital in South Africa. This place would really interest me because there is some history of how the government was formed and there are lots of tourist things to do. It is on the coastline which means it is surrounded by water which would be fun because I love swimming and it means you are isolated and nothing or nobody can bother you.  That is why I would like to go to Cape Town.

The second place I would love to be in Cuba. Cuba is a small island that is located near the Caribbean Sea. Cuba lots of people go to for a vacation because it is warm and there are lots of beaches and it is on the ocean and who doesn’t like the ocean? I would love to go there because I love the heat and there are many animals there that I have never seen before and they would be very cool to see. Cuba is known for only using classic cars because when you go to Cuba there aren’t any new vehicles as we have here.  I would love to visit Morro Castle because it has so much history. That is why I would love to go to Cuba.

The last place I would like to visit is Rio in Brazil. Rio is the capital city in Brazil which is located in South America. Rio is famed for is Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, They are some of the nicest beaches in the World in my opinion and Rio is very hot which again I love. It is a very busy place and filled with lots of people. It is known for its rainforest and the most dangerous one in the world is outside of Rio is the Amazon. I would love to float down the river on a boat in Rio because it would make me very excited to see all those creatures I have never seen before. That is why I would like to go to Rio.

These are the three places I would love to visit because of some of the activities they offer and because of the heat. They are the three places I would go to in a heartbeat but one day I hope to visit all three of them but for now, I will just imagine myself there enjoying life. That is why I chose these three places.

  Rio, Brazil


  Cape Town, South Africa



Three Songs

Music can be very interesting because all types of music tell a story. It doesn’t matter what kind of music you listen to there is always something to pick out from that song. When people are trying to tell a story and it is just to hard to say they instead put it into a song so people can still hear the story but it makes it easier for everyone. The three songs that I never get tired of hearing is God’s Country, Heartless, and Kick Start My Heart. I will tell you why I never get tired of them.

God’s country is a country song and it is a good one. It has a very good tune to it and it makes me just feel so relaxed. It is about someone and how they are just so blessed for what they have. The quote “Got a deed to the land, but it ain’t my ground this is God’s country.” it is telling you that even if you own the land or something it is God’s and God is everything. when I listen to the song it makes me just want to get closer to God and it makes you understand what he has made for use in this lifetime. God’s country is a very good poem and that will make you sing the song and that is why I never get tired of the song God’s country.

The song Heartless is a pop song and it is one of my favorites of all time. It is about a person telling someone that they need to be more considerate of other people and asking ” why you go to be so heartless.” That quote is saying that we need to be more considerate of what we say and do to people.  When I listen to the song it makes me just feel like everything is good and it just makes you stop and think of everything we have.

Kickstart My Heart is a song produced by the band ” Motley Crue.” The song, in my opinion, doesn’t really have much of a storyline but it makes for one heck of a dance. I think the story of the song is about when you have fallen down someone will be there to kick you back up. It is the best seller the Motley Crue ever had and it is still in this day one of the best songs that you here. This song has been around before I was born and I had heard it at a very younger age and still to this day I never get tired of hearing it. I like to hear it before I have like a sporting event because it gets me fired up and makes me focused. That is why I like this song and I never get tired of it.

These are the three songs that I would love to listen to because I never get tired of listening to them.  These are three songs that lots of people like and they aren’t songs you get tired of like some other songs. That is why I chose these three songs as my top three songs.



Visual of My Favorite Poems

These are my top three poems I choose because they really tell you something that should mean something to everyone. Always work hard for something because when you get it easy it usually isn’t the right way in getting it. Remember about all those magical things that have happened in your life and never forget them because that is what makes your life your life. The last thing is to always be grateful for what you have because you don’t want to be like everyone else, you want to be your very own person. That is why I thought these three poems brought so much interest to me.
