We all have something in our lives that remind us of happy memories. There are many things that I enjoy for that reason, one of those being puns. Puns are jokes that are made by playing with words. An example is “To write with a broken pencil is pointless.” These kind of really bad jokes remind me of my Grandpa! Whenever I hear one I think of him. What kinds of things are precious to you?

Journal #5

Sorry I put this up late. I'll take it on Tuesday but I'll give a point extra credit if you turn it in by the normal time! Thanks!!!

I have always heard that in some cultures people who spend time by themselves are considered strange. I am the kind of person who needs some time by myself. I love to be around people, but to really relax and not die of stress I need to spend time alone. During that time I like to sleep, read a book, take a walk, sleep, write or some other activity that puts me at ease. What do you think of alone time? Do you need it or is it something strange to you?
REMEMBER- Due 11/17 at 5pm. 10 Sentences.

Journal Questions #4

People tend to think that fears and dreams are really different things, but sometimes the things that we fear the most are things that might get in the way of our dreams by making them impossible. My dream is to travel. Ever since I was a child I have wanted to see the world. I have been able to travel out of the country 3 times in my life, once to England and twice to Japan. I was so excited every time, actually I cried tears of joy the moment I saw Japan for the first time from the air! I used to have to many fears about traveling. That would not have money, that I would not be able to make close friendships with anyone outside of my culture. Now that I’ve made many friends from outside of my culture I am excited to be able to travel more in the future! Maybe one day I will have the pleasure of visiting your country too!

What are your dreams and aspirations for the future? What kinds of fears do you have that relate to this? Or do you not have any fears? Why not?

Due 11/10 at 5pm!! 10 sentences required.
