Freshman year and sophomore year I had an awesome english teacher, but as soon as Junior year came it all went down hill. I had this short teacher name Mrs. Uecke which is pronounced as IKI, im not kidding about that. In her class all we did was read short stories, get tested on the story and then do the same thing over and over again. It was so fricken boring that i slept most of the time and still got an A or B in that class(matters on how willing i was to actually do her work). Now its my SENIOR year and I was so happy that I have a new english teacher but it turns out that shes like a million times worse!!! This new teacher Ms. Tomita is crazy as all crazy teachers come. On the first day of school she somehow came late to my period 5 english class, and it took us like 20 minutes just to take attendance just because she kept on talking about herself after every other name. Yesterday was the most hilarious day of all, for some reason when we were taking about the book Beowulf she asked about Harry Potter and how to say Voldemort... It took me and my friends like 6 tries before she could actually say the name correctly and when my friend Micheal wakes up and listens to the conversation Ms Tomita asks what Harry Potter is about and Micheal says its about a whole bunch of black guys who are trying to be friends with each other. I swear to god that she believed him with all her heart, and she couldnt tell that micheal was being sarcastic. My friend Mei Qi sat in our class this one time, she has english at the community college but she didnt want to leave yet cause it was raining so she hung out in my class. Mei Qi came to my class maybe on the 6th day of school and my teacher didnt realize that Mei Qi hasnt been in our class until that day.
Ms Tomita is a cool teacher and all but man she is so stupid sometimes and its driving me crazy!!! I thought I was going to actually learn something this year but for what Ive seen so far Im not going to learn anything at all...
Hope everyone else gets lucky and has a teacher who will teach them something...useful

Fire is a prequal to Graceling and takes place thirty years before Katsa and Po's story. It is also set in an entirely different land a certain character from Graceling makes an appearnence in Fire, other than that one character the story is differnet from Katsa and Po's. Fire is a monster, a human monster and the last of her kind. In her homeland the Dells there are monsters ranging from mosquitos to raptors and they all have one thing in common, there incomperable beauty that every man and women has a desire for. Buts that not all every monster in the Dells has some capability to control the minds of those around them, and there are those in the Dells who have built a strong mind to avoid being taken over. With the ability to control those around her and her beauty she inspires fear, hatred and longing. Fire is the one thing that everyone longs for in the Dells, Fires father was the old kings most trusted advisor, the man who lead to his death and the man responsible to the current state of the land. With her amazing gift she is saught after by the King of the Dells to help stop an oncoming war.

You know what sucks?...having to go to your first day of school early. I start school at 7:30 but today I went to School at like 7 am trying to move my classes around so that I dont have a free period, my counselor doesnt come until like 725 when A LOT of us start at 7:30 so we all sign up to make an appointment, Im third on the stupid list and I dont even get called in at all. I have to wait in line for like 20 minutes only for him to have to tell me that I cant move any of my classes around because its my english class. So with the gap my schedule would have been:
- Japanese 4
- NO CLASS
If I was able to move my english up it would have:
- Japanese 4
I would have been able to leave school at like ONE o clock everyday or earlier on some days!!! Im stuck in school until like 2 now.
I am so pissed off right now, because of all the cut backs in our school there are a lot less teachers are more students then ever before in each class. Last year in my english there was like 18 of us and this year theres 32.
Senior year is suppose to be the best year, but all I have so far is crowded as hell classes, a gap in my schedule, no car to bring to school and a teacher who wont stop talking about herself. So i am hoping that things get better soon...

Stealin Heaven by Elizabeth Scott was amazing, I think this is the third book that Ive read from her and all of them are amazing!!
Danielle and her mom are proffesional thieves, and its the only life that she has ever known. When her mom decides that they should go to a place actually called Heaven, she figures it gonne be the same as all of the other places. Do the research, steal whatever they need and leave town.
But as soon as she reaches the small town, everything is different, she meets Gregwho has a troubled past and is a genuine cop, Danielle knows she shouldnt get to attached to him but its just so hard. Then theres Allison who may turn out to be her first real friend.
As things go horribly wrong she must chose the life shes always wanted or the life that shes known her entire life
This book was easy to relate to in so many ways, Danielle just wants more with her life, but there is always something in her way...her heart. Shes been raised since she was young to steal things, all she wants is to have a place she can call home.But her mom doesnt want that, and Danielle loves her mom and doesnt want to leave her or dissapoint her. Stealing Heaven was amazing on so many levels, it was easy to read in one sitting, and just the way Elizabeth Scott writes it keeps you wanting more and guessing what might happen next.
"My mother taught me to believe in Silver, to believe in things, but I think its more important to believe in me"
