I think this is my best-written piece from seventh grade. This piece is about why students should have fewer hagwons. This piece was a standard persuasive essay, point, evidence, and reasoning. I think this is the most well-written piece because I got a high score on this, but I spent a lot of time towards this. I researched a lot and put a lot of effort towards the writing piece.
Unlike the genres I read (realistic fiction), 'The Hunger Games' had elements of realistic fiction and a little bit of science. This book requires deep thinking and this book is very serious. I enjoyed reading the deep serious mood of the book and how each character reacted. Since the different characters reacted in a very interesting way under some serious moment, it was enjoyable to read. I really enjoyed both the book and the movie.
This quote had 'speak to me' in an inspiring way. I think this quote means that even though you fail a lot of times, you have to get back up. I think this quote gives courage and not to give up even though you hit the lowest point of your life. I think I would be able to think differently when I hit my lowest point after reading this quote.
I have been playing my clarinet since fourth grade. In the school band, I play the clarinet. The woody sound the clarinet creates attracted me to the instrument. Since clarinets are not heavy, it is easy to carry and easy to play anywhere. I want to practice and improve my skills so I become a better player.
Traveling is my favorite hobby. Out of the different places I went, my favorite place was the Chihuly Museum in Seattle. This museum has many different glass arts. I saw it very creative and interesting.
I listen to a lot of music, especially KPOP. When I listen to the music, I usually don't care about the singer. I think KPOP is little different from other music, but I think that's why many people (including me) listen to it.
