I love love love love love love love love love dragons! I don't like the ones that raze cities so much as the ones that live harmoniously with humans. I liked ones that are medium-sized (about the size of a horse or an elephant), not the ones that are so large they make the ground tremulous with every step. I prefer red, white, gold, or black for their scale color, bat or bird wings, minimal face and body spikes, and a beak or crocodile snout. There are many different types of dragons, but I like fire ones best. In Harry Potter, my favorite dragon is the Chinese Fireball.

It would have to be Little Bee. The second half of The Bell Jar was noisome while reading it with all the depressing parts. Catcher, though not terrible, didn't have that much to it. Bean Trees was so memorable that I had to think for a moment on what the 4th book was, which tells you how much I liked that book too. I did not stay impassive while reading any of them, but Little Bee tugged at my emotions in a moving, not crushing way.

Thinking retrospectively, I believe my favorite book was The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which I read for summer reading. To use candor, the beginning of the novel was extremely boring, but after breaking through the rough start, it became an intriguing mystery novel full of brain-stimulating circumstances and quirky characters.

I like it because it makes me think about life and people and what I would do in Katniss's situation. I can't believe that so many people would acquiesce to the "hunger games," but reflecting on their government, I can see it is possible. They already had the gladiator battles in the olden days. The games are abject and terrible for the kids.

I want to be a successful, published author and some other career having to do with biology and possibly technology. Ideally, I'd want to be both at the same time, and I hope that dream is not too quixotic. I've already started writing stories that I'd live to get published. Publication is a far ways away, still. Even know, I know that some people will put my story on the banned book list and expurgate my books from their school for "witchcraft" and "blasphemy" if/when I publish my book. Really, people need to remember that it is in fact fiction.

My favorite actress is Katya Lipovesky! This is because she’s my stage mommy! It’s really harrowing that she’s going to college next year because I won’t see her anymore then! (NOOOOOOOOOOOO T.T). I hope our Mommy-Son relationship will be immutable forever!

I like it because I can keep track of my grades better. I don't have too much of a problem with my mom seeing my grades, as I tell her if I mess up tests anyways. I'm not sure if she even looks at the gradebook anyways. I can see how it would totally mess up other people's lives because they beguile their parents into thinking they have As when the kid is really failing. Some people might think that whoever thought up gradebook was a callous person since gradebook can ruin people's lives if they don't have good grades. I feel bad for those kids whose parents are tiger moms and mess up a bit and their parents come down on them.
