Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is a very fascinating book about categories in humanity by genetics and making everybody in levels and you could never been the highest level and not because you aren’t good enough but because you were just in that category and there was nothing you could do about it. The books left me with a lot of questions and doubts like in a future this could be my world in some ways this Is like the world im living in now and is really scary because if you think about it 50 years ago divorce or cheating wasn’t acceptable but now 60% of marriage end in divorce and at lest in Mexico I don’t know if here but im Mexico we do have categories id different like with money or you’re families last name but still and that when you know the world is changing a lot scince 1932.
I think a lot of people now more than before fell more like Bernard because he doesn’t fit and I think all of us sometimes don’t fit at all and feel a little like Bernard and more if you see other people fitting in.
Something I really didn’t like was the ending it wasted that understandable and you need some guidance in all the book for me there were a lot of words that I didn’t understand and had to ask for them.
After all I would totally recommend this book because it makes you think about you’re like and how you can wat you’re time in so little time we have and Aldo about the future how is it going to change we don’t know.
I don’t like strikes, for the day student that don’t know what strikes are they are a penalty for breaking a dorm rule if you get 3 in a week you get restorative justice this week I have 7 witch means I have 2 this week but the worst part is that I have to get up at 8:40 to do chores. In my opinion its okey to put strikes but my strikes were for night wandering but I couldn’t sleep so I went to nicky’s room to get a melatonin pill and that is unfair because if not I could have slept and I would have been late for breakfast and I would get a strike. My other strikes were for being late for study hall and bedtime those are fair but they should give us like a 5 min buffer. I was planing on sleeping in on Saturday but I can’t because I have the 2h chores.
I have always liked fashion since I was a kid. I know liked it because when it was the met gala my mom will always but it on and she would make me look at the dresses of the celebrities and point out the details. I also love making outfits for my friends and I love talking the time to plan what im wearing.
International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8. This date commemorates the historic struggle of women for equal rights and participation in society and politics.
International Women’s Day was officially recognized by the United Nations in 1975, but its origins date back to the early 20th century. In 1908, a group of socialist women in New York organized a demonstration to demand better working conditions and the right to vote. Since then, March 8 has become a day to remember the achievements and challenges faced by women around the world.
Every year, International Women’s Day is celebrated with events and activities around the world to highlight the importance of gender equality and promote the active participation of women in society. It is a day to honor and support all women, as well as to recognize the work that still needs to be done to achieve equal rights and opportunities for all people, regardless of gender. In Mexico woman cannot leave there houses that day or go to school.

“Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery.”
Chapter 5 of “Outsmart Your Brain” by Daniel Willingham is titled “Memory is the Residue of Thought” and focuses on the role of memory in learning and thinking.
Memory is essential for thinking and learning: Willingham emphasizes the importance of memory in thinking and problem-solving, stating that “thinking is memory in action.” Without memory, we would not be able to recognize patterns, make connections between different concepts, or build upon our previous knowledge.

Something looks different about you,Belly I braced myself for the punch line. “What? I got contacts.” I wasn’t completely used to myself without glasses either. My best friend Taylor had been trying to convince me to get contacts since the sixth grade, and I’d finally listened.
He smiled. “It’s not that. You just look different.” I went back to the car then, and the boys followed me. We unloaded the car quickly, and as soon as we were done, I picked up my suitcase and my book bag and headed straight for my old bedroom.

“We’re all just people who sometimes do bad things.” Chapter 1, Page 17)
Soldier’s Home and All Quiet On The Western Front are very different but they have some similarities like how they both show different emotions and how when they both go back to there homes they both didn’t find any sense or feel at home, they both talked about war how hard was it to and how traumatic it was but the differences are that .
In Soldier’s Home Kerbs the main character is really isolated he wants to go back to war and in his own experience he enjoyed war. However Paul really disliked war and didn’t want to talk of it.
“All of the times that had been able to make him feel cool and clear inside himself when he thought of them; the times so long back when he had done the one thing, the only thing for a man to do, easily and naturally, when he might have done something else, now lost their cool, valuable quality and then were lost themselves.”
All Quiet on the Western Front was a very good book but also sad and traumatic, thinking about how soldiers would live like that and how they would manipulate them to get into the army and making them think how the army was the best thing that could happened. The things they went through like when the soldiers started dying the living soldiers didn’t know hoe to reacted to celebrate if they because they have more food or too fell sad because of half of the soldier died.
Thinking of how Paul felt when his best friends died he was the last one of his friends and the worst part is that he also died, but is really funny thinking how one day you can be in school and people are talking about a war that might happened and the next day you are signing up for the army because you and you’re friends think is going to be a cool experience and fun and when you come back feeling proud of you’re self for defending you’re country and the next day you lost all of you’re friend and you haven’t seen you’re family in ages and you’re fears is that you’re are never going too see them.
The worst part is that is you didn’t go to the army people would make fun of you or you wouldn’t have friend or the respect of other, in conclusion I did like the book a lot I would even watch the movie but it did make me thinking about how can people do that kill people just because they have disagreement or they want more territory.
In 2019 I went to Asia for mi grandparents 50th anniversary It was really fun we went to Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia ,Myanmar, Laos, and Japan it was really fun I went with my mom, brother, grandma, grandpa, aunt and my 2 cousins. I remember the food in Thailand was really good and the building where super big like 50 floors, we got on some elephants and at first I was scared but after that I loved it and where we were going I wanted to get on an elephant, after Thailand we went to Myanmar is so pretty the I didn’t love the food but there are nudist there and they have this beautiful golden temples and they paint you’re face with like mood but after you wash it of you’re face is really soft. We went to Hanoi and it was so pretty I just stayed one day but we ate in a bote and it was really fun After we went to Vietnam and it was amazing its one of my favorite places the food was really good and we went to see a museum about the war and it was really cool they show us there techniques and it amazing. Cambodia Is also really pretty I remember that we stayed in a hotel but it was surrounded by water it was really cool. In laos I got sick so I only remember eating at a restaurant .In Japan me and my brother got lost and we had money so we went to get food and we had a weird thing .It was a really cool expirience and I would love to do it again.
The story, movie and book are different because they both have different characters and different points of view . The movie talks about the process of the war and what was happening before and during it, they were also many people’s stories not just one. While the book talks more about it, more in detail and just follows one person’s story and talked about how hard was the war for him and his friends. In the short story they talk about after the war and his life after it , that he missed the war and the adrenaline he felt empty without the war . After all they are about the same how horrific the First World War was.
