Final Quarter Reflection Blog

I think this quarter was a great learning experience for me. I started off without a good sense of time and a bad procrastination habit. I improved at that and I noticed when reading the second book I got right on it and stuck with a more diligent schedule in reading it. This gave me more time to put quality work into my project. I think I can still improve on that however. I believe that this is a double edged sword for me because as I improve my reading I put less emphasis on my writing. I need to improve on creating a more balanced attack towards my work and focus more. My goal for next quarter is to use my class time more effectively. I know if I do this my work load will be cut down and I will have more opportunity to do well in this class.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

I have thoughourly enjoyed the book "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" Christopher has frequently portrayed such innocence throughout the book and the way this book was written allows the reader to see the simple desires of this boy as well as the complex and brilliant way his mind thinks. Its obvious throughout the book Chritopher struggles to interact with other people. This is becasue he cannot seperate his mind from other peoples minds. He thinks the world thinks the way his mind does. Throughout the book Christopher yearns to prove his ability in school and wants to go to University to study maths. Lots of people believed that he couldn't do it because of his Aspergers but people don't understand that his condition doesn't hinder his mental capacity at all. He also wants independence in the book and runs away from his father because he didn't feel safe. Despite never going to London before and his life and being scared beyond belief he gathered his courage and went to go find his mother of which he believed to be dead. This book has been fun and endearing throughout but has now become very exciting. I can't wait to finish it.

Blog 1

This book struck me as fantastic not even 5 pages into it. The way the author writes it from the autistic kids point of view is very funny and is very moving. I instantly was able to relate Christopher John Francis Boone to all the other innocent and good meaning kids that I've had the pleasure of interacting with. I also love all the little quirks Christopher elaborates on and his irrelevant tangents he goes off on are priceless. I think I already realize that Christopher shows through the book that everyone is a good natured and everyone is different which is what makes us all the same.
