What a trip! . During the trip we did a bunch of activities we kayaked, hiked, shot archery, climbed, cooked Thai food and plenty of other activies.
If I had to describe my self during the trip with two learneer profiles then I would have ben reflective and a risk-taker. I think that I was reflective because everyday before lgihts out I wrote a reflection on the activitirs of the day. I think that I was a risk-taker because I was the firest person in my group who tried to start communicating with the kids that we played with.
One challenge I had during the trip was trying to communicate and play with the kids. I solved this by slowly starting out with basic games that the kids know like duck duck goose and them moved on to more complicated games like checkers, checker was realy fun playing because they played on a reguler checker oard but instead of using chips we used stones. The kids actually had realy good memory because even at the end of the game when all of our stonese were in different parts of the board they could still remember who’s’ rocks where who’s’.
I think this trip helped me grow in a way because that was a whole week with looking at any digital screens It was actually really fun not using computers, but it was weird because I usually spend half the day looking at screens and that was a whole week with out looking at any screens. I think I grew because now since I am back in Hong Knong I don’t think i will be using my computer as much any more.
My whole life has been so hard. My parents don’t even want me to come home. It’s been such a mess. Growing up on the street. Being arrested when I was 8, stealing just to survive. You have no idea what it’s like.
But some some how,pause some how I found a way to slowly push through all of that trash. And now after this happened, is there even a reason to live and keep going when I know that even more baloney will keep happening to me?
Johnny pause the only person who ever gave a dime about me is gone. that little innocent puppy;eyed kid. little Johnny cake. The only person who I could talk too. I was is role middle thats probably why he is dead only if he looked up to some one like Darry maybe then he wouldn’t have died. And now the group is going to fall apart, Johnny was the one who kept the group united. But now he’s gone pause all gone forever. And now cause he’s gone theres not one dang person on this planet who gives a dime what happens to me.
Maybe I should just stop and give up on my life. Because so far the only good things in my life have disappeared. So I should just end this, right now. end this baloney of a life. The only question is how Pause how can I take my own life but still be a tough greaser and not make the socs think that I am weak and they pressured me into this? because they are better then me and that I would rather die then to keep fighting with the socs. Because thats not why I’m ending my life. or is it? Is it because they have done everything possible to make me and all greasers life’s terrible? No I’m doing this because of my parents, my past, and because johnny is dead. Not because of the socs.
There are a couple reasons why Pony Boy told himself he was the one who killed Bob. I think that Pony Boy insisted that he was the one who killed Bob because then he wouldn’t have to keep thinking about how Johnny had saved Pony’s life by killing Bob, and reminding himself that Johnny was dead also one of the main reasons why Johnny was at the church was because he was on the run from the police for saving Pony Boys life. Also Pony Boy probably feels better knowing that his friend who just died was not a murderer. In conclusion Pony Boy is insisting that he killed Johnny because that way he will not have to think about Johnny or remember that his friend killed another human being instead of the really good friend that he had ben.
