Pacific Crossing Getting Closer to the End
Recently I read pages 117-124 in Pacific Crossing, by Gary Soto and I liked it because Lincoln is going to promote to the next level belt and I think his sensei and his friends are happy for him and it should put a smile on their faces to see him graduation and Lincoln should be proud of himself as well. Lincoln is nervous that he is going to graduate and to move on and I would be nervous too, but there is nothing to be nervous about.
One line from this part of the book that stands out for me is: " It feels better after a quick shower." I think this is important because I think showers do make you feel better and I think that it makes your mind really open minded and you wouldnt think about the bad stuff that is going on, but the good stuff that is going to happen. Showering is refreshing and I think it clears your mind of everything you are thinking about. When there is a lot on my mind I go take a shower.
Another line that I enjoyed was: " Lets go for a walk". This stood out for me because I love walking. I think walking is very important and everyone should do it. I always walk everyday and I love walking and I never get tired of it. I walk as long as possible and as far as possible and I wont get tired at all. I think walking is a good excercises and it gets your blood moving and everything. Everyone should walk everyday and they should be lazy at all because I think walking makes a person healthier and it helps them to think a lot faster and everything because it is a really good excerscise if you walk for a long time.
This section of Pacifc Crossing reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I was nervous to graduate from judo and I was really scared, but I think I shouldnt be and I should be happy instead because I am moving up to the next belt. Everyone was happy because I graduated and they were proud at me as well as my sensei. I couldnt stop the smile from my face because I was just really in joy that I was graduating after so much hard work and I moved up to this level.
What's probably going to happen next is I think Lincoln would be fighting other boys that are the same level as them and I think Lincoln is better than everyone else because he has been practicing really hard to suceed and everything and I think his learning comes to play and how he does new moves and new techniques. After the tournament there in Japan I think Lincoln returns home and I think he is happy to be home and finally getting to see his parents.
I am looking foward to reading the rest of the book because I am about to read the last chapter of this book and then I am going to be finished with this whole book and I want to find out what happens in the last chapter of this book and see what is going on and if Lincoln does become a master of not.
