Where I’d Like to Visit

If I could visit anywhere in the world, I’d really want to visit Canada. I don’t really know a lot about Canada, but I’ve always really liked it, and wanted to visit. I know a lot of people that either live near Canada, have family from Canada, or are Canadian. I really like the Canadian flag, as well as the Canadian national anthem. Overall, I’d really like to visit Canada, and hope to learn more about it.

Random Thoughts

I recently found a new author, Isaac Asimov, who I believe might write my favorite books. He is a famous science fiction author who wrote most of his books in the 1950’s and 1960’s, as far as I know. I’m currently reading I, Robot, which I find really interesting as it discusses complex theories or situations concerned with robots. It lays out the three fundamental laws of robotics in order of importance with the first being the most important:

  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws

I’m really excited to read Caves of Steel , also written by Isaac Asimov, after I finish I, Robot. Its a science fiction detective story that looks really good.

Commenting Practice

I commented on this blog because he appears to have similar interests to me. I commented on this blog because he really likes to play video games as well, and we share similar interests. I commented on this blog because he shares similar interests in programming. I also commented on this blog because I found their points interesting.

Comments:

  1. What are your favorite video games, or what kinds of video games do you like to play the most?
  2. I also really like CS:GO, it’s my second favorite game. I like the P90 module skin as well, but the Trigon beats it for me. My favorite game is Undertale.
  3. I love using computers as well. I really like programming in C++ as well as Java.
  4. I agree with your idea that using prophets to predict the future is pointless.

Of Mice and Men: Character Belongings

Prompt: Compare and contrast the different sets of personal belongings seen in Chapter 2 of Of Mice and Men. What do these belongings reveal about their owners?

Dear Lauren,

George is a simple person. He only carries around the minimum belongings he needs. This shows that he either doesn’t care about many objects, or he is practical enough to realize how hard it would be to lug around many objects around with him. The old swamper, Candy, has an old sheep dog that he takes care of. He’s had him since he was a pup. This shows that he is a caring person. He has stood by the dog, even though it isn’t much use anymore. The man who used to sleep in George’s bunk, Whitney, kept a bottle of poison to kill pests. Candy describes him as a clean person, dressing up on Sundays even when he didn’t go anywhere. This shows that even though no one else cared, he had standards of himself that he wanted to uphold. He was careful about what he ate and staying safe from pests. These characters each have personalities that can be at least partially deduced from their personal belongings.

A Look to the Past and Future

Here is an imitation of Work Boots: Still Life by Jim Daniels

A Look to the Past and Future

by Nicholas

Next to the garage door

fencing shoes slumber in the gloom

obsidian and blood red stripes map the nylon

and laces wilt

like the limbs of an exhausted combatant

waiting for the end.

The sole collapses on the ground like the groan

of someone too tired to whisper

a mouth that can hardly pant.

A look inside shows

a small amount of dirt with

a hint of sweat

an idea of safety from damage

the promise of steel and the many years to come.
