Next Chapters of Mice and Men

I already know what will happen in the next few chapters. I didn't read the final chapter but instead learned from watching TV. A main character is reading the book so he talks about it to his family. What happens in the end is Lennie kills a puppy and Curley's wife discovers it and tries to console him. They end up in a struggle with Lennie killing the wife. Lennie runs off with George trailing behind and a angry mob with a few weapons. Lennie goes to the riverbed which is where the whole book started and gets some water to drink. George catches up and they talk about the farm plans and such. George takes out a gun and shoots Lennie in the back of his head. The mob arrives and asks what happened. George says he and Lennie got in a struggle. Some people believe the story and some don't. Then the story ends...

College Debts

I guess it depends on how much it will cost and what you want to be.  Some places that are large and hard to get into schools will cost a lot. I think local colleges are a good price for most things and it supports local!

Spring Break 2012

For most of Spring Break I was sick with something. On Friday the 13th I got a Betta Fish which I named Squirt. Before that I went shopping at Walmart and Target where all I bought was a soda. The next day I woke up with a sore throat. On Sunday I woke up barley able to talk and when I did, I sounded like a smoker with one of those surgies with a hole in the neck. On Monday I woke up a little better and later on got a bottom feeder at PetLife in Millcreek and placed him in the tank. On Tuesday I was so much better but still had a sore throat. That night I went to the circus which was a lot of fun! On Wednesday I woke up with my nose stuffed up. Later on I went to Titanic 3D which was good but lacked 3D. It was still good to see it on the big screen. On Thursday I slept a lot of the day. On Friday I just hung around my house. On Saturday I cleaned my messy room which hadn't been cleaned for awhile. On Sunday I was doing some last minute homework and babysat my sister, for most of the day and spent a few minutes outside before the rain started. So I guess my vacation was ok but would have been much better if I wasn't sick!

Diploma Switch

I dont like the new bill because people could graduate at different times. You would have different age groups together that might not mix. I think however in some cases if a student has all the knowledge needed then they should be able to graduate. To graduate anyways you need to get so many credits so if you dont know the knowledge you have to retake the courses and you would finally learn the information.

Chapter 2 Favorite Character

My favorite character so far would be Candy because it seems he has done a lot in his life. He feels like he is going to get too old to work and is easily tricked into plotting or a scheme.

Addiction to Technology

I think that the article is true and this happens every day in school and at home. During school I can see people hiding phones under the desk and texting. They focus more on that then school work. At home there on Facebook more then there homework, since there aren't any blocks or restrictions. Myself I can go on my email and chat with people and, do school work at the same time but I will remind them that im working and It could take awhile to respond.

The Dust Bowl

The dust bowl started in the 1930's and lasted till the end of 1938. Winds kicked dust up which made a wall of dust. The dust made crops fall apart and die. When you had to go outside and take care of chores or the animals, you would breathe in sand which is bad for your health. It was hard to drive because the walls of sand/dust. That led to shortages in food and supplies needed. Also with the shortage of food being grown the prices of food went up.
