reading lessons

This talks about how we as people need to read more because it makes everything so much better. The story talks about this man and how when he was younger he did not like to read and now that he is older he wishes that he would have read more. He sees in his son that he is having a hard time reading too. I think that we should read everyday.

I’m sure that when you were younger you did not want to read that much. Now I think that you are going to regret it because reading helps you with everything. “Learning a new language, a moderately difficult one, had given me the power of concentration I could not muster on my own. It had made me a child in a sense.” When you are reading you don’t realize that you are learning something new and every time you read a book  you take something from that book every time.

I hope that when I am older my kids don’t have a problem with reading but if they do that is ok. I would just help them if they don’t understand or they just need help. This man is having that problem but I think that he is also having that same problem. “So much work requires attention. My son approaches the challenge of decoding the world with intense concentration, straining to squeeze out meaning from each word and image.” So yes, I think that it is important to read.

This was a good story to read, but I think that you need to take something from this like reading everyday.  When you are older you are going to regret not reading. It will help you through everything you do.

time travle

Where would you go if you could go anywhere in time would you go into the past or into the future? For me, I would love to go back in time. I would love to see what people were doing back then. I would also like to see how people did things back then like how they farmed.  Just in general I think that it would be cool to go back in time.


One thing that I would love to do is to go back in time and see what life was like. All we have from back then are photos and books. I want to know what it is really like. I want to be able to live like them for like a month and then I would feel like I would know what it was like back then. I would love to see what they would do for fun. What I do think is that they would have been working but like I’m sore that they must have been like hanging out or something like that. I would be so cool to time travel. 


Almost every year me and my mom goes to this event called haying in the thirties. It is about how people farmed and I have always wondered what it would be like if life was still like that today. Everyone just seemed so happy and that is something that I wish we had today in our society.

I have an idea of what it may have looked like and what they were doing but I would just love to know. I know that life must have been hard back then but us nowadays we don’t know how it must have been. 


Going back in time would just be so wonderful you could really see what life was like I have always wondered what it would be like having a school out in the middle of nowhere and having to ride your horse to school. For right now all we can do is wonder, wonder what it would be like to not have internet, wonder what it would be like to not have cars. 


Going back in time would be a dream come true because then you would know some theories you would know if they were true. I think that it would be so wonderful and you would be able to see everything.


What if? What if we lived in a world of what if that anything could happen. What about right now where would you like to be right now? Time travel, when I was younger I wanted to time travel all the time. Now since I have gotten older I still want to. If I could choose to be anywhere right now I would be training horses, Scotland, and finally to go home and sleep.


One thing that I love to do right now is training horses. I have been around them all my life and they are just so fun to be around. When you train a horse you have to remember that they are all different and they all have different personalities. Some of them take a long time to train but some of them just get what you are teaching. In some ways, they are like humans. Over the past couple of years, I have trained around 15 horses, but a horse is never perfect there is always something that you can work on to make them better. Foles is really fun to train, but you got to have a lot of strength because they will try to run but you have to make sure that they learn that it is ok that they are not going to get hurt, then you have to do this a lot until they understand it. If I could time travel than I would get to train a horse in a heartbeat. 


One place that I have always wanted to go ever since I was little in Scotland. The reason that I want to go there is because of history. The history is the best part because you can see how all the people before us lived and what they built. I love would love to go there because it just seems like a place where you can see things that in other places you would not see. I would also like to go there because I am Scottish and I would like to see some of my heritage. Overall it would just be a wonderful place to go.


If I could go to any other place I would also like to go home and sleep. Since today is Monday I think that it is the perfect day to stay home and sleep. What do most people want to on a weekend they want to sleep in, and well do you blame them we all need a break once in a while I think that it is best to do that every now and then. Yes, I would love to go home and sleep in rather than be at school.


If time travel was a thing it would be lots of fun. The things that I would do would be to go and train horses because that is lots of fun it also gets me to learn. Another thing would be to go to Scotland I think that it would be so much fun to go and learn about a new country. And I would absolutely love to go home and sleep. Overall all I can do is wish, wish that one day this may come true.



When you are working, or you are just maybe on your way to school what do you do? Most people would listen to music. I’m sure that you know that feeling of when you get a song stuck in your head and your friends ask you hey what are you singing, then you have to respond with I don’t know. Well, the songs that I have might help you. One is Jersey on the wall- by Tenille Towns. Me and my kind- by Cody Johnson. Take a back road- Rodney Atkins. If you want songs to get stuck in your head then I would advise you to listen to these songs. 


When I am feeling down or just because it is a beautiful song I listen to Jersey on the wall. The song was written as a reflection on grief and how great loss can challenge one’s faith. “And somewhere there’s a mother/Who stopped going’ to church/’Cause Your plan quit making’ sense down here on Earth”. I’m sure that all of us will have lost someone or will lose someone. When you lose someone we have to go through a lot of grief. This song when you listen to it you are not just trying to sing along, to this song you are listening to the backstory behind it all. She talks about how back in her hometown one of her friends died. This song reminds me of the guy in the school he died in and it was very hard for a lot of people. I hope that one day we will do something in his memory. In general, I think that this song is wonderful in its own way. 


Country songs, that is what I love when you hear a good country song you will listen to it a lot. For this song, I heard it on the radio and I said to myself I have to find that song and I have loved it ever since that day. The song is called Me and my kind- by Cody Johnson. The song is about his old girlfriend and he said that she used to be into cowboys and since they broke up he’s not into them anymore. “Oh, cause back when we were loving’ she thought cowboys were something/Now’ they ain’t”. This song seems to me that when you date someone then you break up you’re not really into that type anymore you have a new type. In this song, the guy seems sad that they are broken up and I can imagine that it would be hard on someone. This song is a good song because it is the type of song to get stuck in your head. 


Since I’m in the country we take back roads. This song is perfect for all the farms out there. For most people, it gets annoying to be in a city with cars on your butt and honking at you. When you get onto a gravel road what do you feel like doing? Do you feel free? I love taking a back road in the summertime because there are not that many people on it like a highway. The song is called take a back road-Rodney Atkins. “And it makes me wanna take a back road/Makes me wanna/take the long way home/Put a little gravel in my travel/Unwind, unravel all night long” 

When I hear this song I think of the summer and how warm it is and how there is dust, but right now there is snow and cold I would rather it be summer or just warmer than – 31. I love this summer song.


What I think I’m trying to say is that I miss summer and how warm it is so that I can listen to them is that summer.  All these songs have a lot of meaning and they are all special to me in my own way. Another thing is that they get stuck in your head for a long time and no matter how hard you try you can not get them out. I love them all. 


The poems that I read and put on my thing I like a lot have some meaning behind them. The world should have some more people that wright like that. I love how the pomes flow and how they are presented. My favorite out of all of them would have to be falling for the stars it has a wonderful message and it is an older pome that is what I like.
