Reflections on Tea Cake and Janie in Their Eyes Were Watching God

Discussion by: ctai on Fri, 2011-05-27 09:45 with 0 comments

I think what Tea Cake did to Janie was messed up because it is their first night together. I wonder where Tea Cake have went off to because he didn’t come back. Janie is wondering where Tea Cake has been because her $200 dollars went missing as well. Why would Tea Cake take Janie’s money. Was he going to do something else with the money?

Purple Flowers Are Blooming.
When It Rains, The Weather Is Gloomy.
Yellow Streaks Grow Among These Flowers.
It Smells So Tangly.
These Flowers Grow Tall.

 Some Of Them Are Half Bloomed.
When Bloomed, These Flowers Experience Nature.
Some May Smell Better Than Others.
Some May Grow Alone Or Even In Groups.
We Will Never Know.
But That Is How Nature Is.

Their Eyes Were Watching God

Discussion by: ctai on Mon, 2011-05-09 09:13 with 1 comments

Their Eyes Were Watching God is a really intriging book. I love how the characters communicate with each other and every scenery that is going on. On pages 98-100 Zora Neal Hurston, she explains how Janie and Jody interacts with each other. There was this quote that stood out for me when it said ""Naw, Ah ain't no young gal no mo' but den Ah ain't old woman
neiter. Ah reckon Ah looks mah age too. But Ah'm uh woman every inch of
me, and Ah know it. Dat's uh whole lote more'n you kin say. You

The Yellow Mule in The Eyes Were Watching God

Discussion by: ctai on Wed, 2011-05-04 09:24 with 0 comments

I am reading the book Their Eyes Were Watching God and I really enjoy it a lot. This book is filled with a lot of symbolism that represents many different things. In this part of the book we had to discover out what the yellow mule meant. The mule in the book had a special meaning to it because oif its nature and what animal a mule actually is. Some people may know what the mule is and some of them might now. A mule typically means a hard worker and have the ability to do many things that a normal person can't do.

Life is not easy and things happen for a reason. When you listen to your heart and nobody else you will be able to know where you belong. Not everyone is the same and everyone is different in their own unique way. Sometimes people do not follow their dreams and they end up in the wrong path in where they really want to be. If people were to open their eyes, they would be able to see what life really is and also everyone makes mistakes, its not like everyone is perfect.

The Nature of Beauty

Looking up into the sky, the sun shines so bright.

All I see is nature in my sight.

Birds are chirping here and there.

The beautiful sound of nature.

All the trees and plants, they mature.

Butterflies flying around.

How can you not love the nature sound.

As the wind blows by with a breeze.

Japan's earthquake and tsunami incident

Discussion by: ctai on Mon, 2011-03-21 09:11 with 0 comments

    Recently in English we've been studying that Japan just been affected by an earthquake and a tsunami. At first I thought, what have caused this terrifying incident to occur. There are many natural disasters out their in the world, but this is one of the worst that we have experienced. Even though it wasn't the main cities in Japan, a lot of people lost their loved ones and their homes. When I read "2011 Sendai earthquake and tsunami", I started to think how can Japan recover from this huge incident. Many people's lives were being taken away and people just lost everything they can possibly have. I feel bad for the people in Japan because what have these people done for them to deserve all this?

Rosa and her impact in life

Discussion by: ctai on Thu, 2011-03-17 12:08 with 0 comments

Rosa came to East West today to speak to the whole senior class. She wanted to let people know about the Holocaust and what she has been through since we have read her book already. The event was for us to ask questions to Rosa about the stuff that we didn't understand from the book. I was really surprised that she was going to answer every question that we asked because sometimes people don't feel comfortable answering some questions. Rosa Strygler is a writer of the book Rosa that we read in English class and she is a Holocaust survivor among the family that experienced it with her. 

" I was terrified by the Holocaust and sometimes it brings back memories. I don't think I can ever forget the scenes that happened"
