Transcript of The Secret Life of Bees

The Secret Life of Bees
Box

The Times are A-Changin' by Bob Dylan. This record is really good. It really shows how Times are A-Changin'. I've had this record for a long time.
Penny
The Awakening
By Kate Chopin
Chapter Books
These books are fun. They present interesting stories. A good many of them are well written. A shocking discovery to me: The book to the left. These books, "The Ghosts of Fear Street" were ghost written. No, this does not mean they were written by ghosts! Ghost writing is when someone is hired to write, but they don't get very much credit. Famous writers do this sometimes, so they can release more books per year. I did several reports on books from both respective series. My teacher gives us the option to do reports on books for extra credit. I chose to abandon anything I did not want to and, do book reports, fun/interesting lessons, and projects. Although sometimes I only do part of the project. This may seem lazy, but I turn in enough book reports to keep an excellent grade.
The End
This project is inspired by a project I did in 9th grade. It is a similar project. I decided to make this a sequel or at least a spiritual sequel. It of course is going to be more inspired by the great book
The Secret Life of Bees.
Jems Box
That project was
called
Jems box.
You may have guessed
this. It was a
To Kill a mockingbird
project. A great idea for
a project.

Probably one of the oldest books I own. Its around 60 years old. I got it in a trade for peaches. Pa would not like me trading a book for peaches, and insist on selling it. It is a great book. Worth a lot of peaches. Two years after I got it, I read it for the whole thing for the second time. I had only reread excerpts before than. I did a nice, pretty soild, report on it. Yes, I'm very modest in my descriptions. The report expolored the controversial book. Honestly I thought there was going to be more sex in it. Not that it would make it better. Kate Chopin knows what she's doing. She is very under appreciated. My teacher did not know the book, but read it, in order to review my report, which is thought was most interesting. Many people I've asked, have not heard of the book, and the ones who have know it to be controversial. Taboo say some. An excellent peace of work. Rest in Happiness Kate Chopin. Rest in Happiness.

The wonderful Wizard of OZ ticket stub
I went to see a screening of The Wizard of oz. I read the book for school and pleasure many times before. I saw the film, sadly, by myself, but that was fine. The film was Wonderful, as the title of the book claims, the Oz should be. Although unlike Oz, the book and film, actually live up to this promise. I enjoyed the film very much and plan to see it again. My favorite character was The Tin woodsman. Although, I don't think, they ever called him, The Tin Woodsman, in the film. It is a GRAND feature presentation.

Spider-Man comic book
This is a Spider-Man comic book. Spider-Man was created around two years ago. He got his own comic book pretty soon after. This issue came out about half a year ago. I got it at the store. (Of all places). It is a good issue. These comic book stories have a lot of substance. It is sad many people, crtizie comic books as a whole. If they have a problem with sevral different books, they complain about the whole culture of it. Many do not appracaite comic books or the concept. One day, I believe comic books will gain a new respect.
I would not want to eat honey, if I knew of, the work and the effort, the bee had to go through, to get it. But honey is sprinkled on, so many things. And honestly it would seem, so exhausting explaining to someone why I can't eat honey-nut cheerios. Perhaps these are not the right reasons to keep eating honey. If we knew the pains an American solider, went through to, give us Freedom, I would still take it. And, no, not because it is too exhausting to explain why why were communists, but because Freedom is everything. If I knew the pains American soldiers go through to provide Freedom, I would still accept it every day, but how much more I would appreciate it. The soldiers fight for something much more than honey. Sometimes their pains are ignored, as much as the bee's who made the honey on the honey nut cheerios, but we taste it, so much more. We just forget to question who provided it sometimes. Maybe this poem can be remembrance.
Poem
Journal Entry
I woke up. It was one of those lonely days. Lonely mornings, I should say. The days are rarely lonely, working with August, with the bees. Rosealeen moved out of the bee house, and into the house. She moved in with May. They are really good friends these days. I woke up at around 6 am. My bare feet felt pretty cold against the floor. Ironic, judging how hot it is around this time of year. Me and June, still aren't getting along, so great. I, often, give her looks, which aren't dirty, but also are not far from it. She is always, more than happy to return them. I've been thinking about my mother a lot lately. I almost wish Augest would ask me more questions, but I rejected them pretty heavily, before, so I suppose I have to wait. The Daughters of Mary have been coming every Sunday. One of them told me a really good story last Sunday, after church. I've been thinking about it, some, recently.

Thanks to Sue Monk Kidd, author of
The Secret Life of Bees
. Thanks for writing a great book!
Like the majority of lucky pennies I have heard of, I found this penny. It was a good day. I don't believe in the luck as much, as I believe, it brings me happiness. I remember the good day, and how much a difference a penny can make.

Pez Candy dispensers
These Pez candy dispensers are great. They are plastic and colorful. I have about five of them. They range from Fred Flinestone to Scooby-Doo. This is not a very big range, but its a good one.

My Favorite Pen
Many of my classic stories were written with this pen. My favorite story I ever wrote, was written with around four writing tools. A crayon (for a few sentences), a pencil (for about 1/3 of it), a red pen, and this pen for almost half of it. This pen ran out of ink about a year ago. I thought about replacing the ink, for ink form a different pen, but decided not too. It would ruin the awesomeness of the pen.
