In Spanish class, we researched a lot about Mexico. We found the population of some important cities and the states where our book, Pobre Ana, takes place. Then, we found ten places in Mexico where we would like to travel to. We did this because it taught us about Mexico’s geography and culture, as well as gave us insight into the book we are reading. I learned lots of things, like for example, I learned that Mexico has states from the work we did on the map. I also learned that Mexico has a lot of beautiful National Parks and that it’s geography is a lot more than just beaches and desert. The research I did also solidified in my mind that Mexico isn’t as poverty-ridden as the media claims it to be. I was surprised to see that Mexico has dolphins. Because of this, one of the items I chose was to Swim with the Dolphins in Nayarit. Another one I chose was Pico de Orizaba National Park because it has a beautiful mountain, and I was surprised to see one in Mexico.

The best gift I gave over the holidays was when I helped my dad work on my dog. Fonzie (my dog) had cut his ear. We had to act fast otherwise it would get an infection. I held Fonzie while my dad washed away the blood. While washing it, the clot broke and it started to bleed again. Then I applied a cotton ball, with pressure, to help stop the bleeding. After that I applied some medicine to make sure it didn’t get infected. Fonzie began to feel much better. He went back to his old playful self. Seeing his joy and relief made me felt warm inside. That’s how it always when I help animals. This is why I want to be a veterinarian. That was the best gift I gave over the holidays.
“Do you want to see a magic trick?”questioned Eric.
“Yes, unless you do it!” declared Brighton.
“I’ll make us disappear!” proclaimed Eric.
“Wait, think about what you’re doing?” protested Brighton and poof they disappeared.
“I think I messed up.” sighed Eric.
“Of course you did.” thought Pudgy Pooch Sarcastically.
More than half of the people who died, died because of diseases not fighting. Because men were all up close & personal. Plus the camps were breeding grounds for diseases like mumps, chicken pox, measles, malaria & epidemics were common.
It was fun. There was good times like when I got new friends & learned new things. There were bad things like when my best friend Ryan Darby moved away. Over all though it was a pretty good year.
I thought we did fairly well. My fellow students thought the same. Although some people only said good for their friends.
Cocky 17 year old Jackie Mitchell strikes out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig out. The Lookouts are a minor league team who just hired a female pitcher who,on her first game, striked out not one but two Baseball legends. Fan Hazel from Chattanooga says that Mitchell stood on mound calm and threw 4 balls( one was a Ball) in anger the Salton of Sweat threw his bat. Gehrig missed 3 straight pitches and Mitchell never broke a sweat.She walked Lazzeri but made Chattanooga proud. That a girl!
