Swim Meet

This past weekend I had a swim meet. It was fun and I did pretty good. I dropped time in almost all most all of my events.

The hardest thing about the swim meet was doing the 200 fly, getting out, switching lanes, then doing the 100 back. In both of those things I added time, but it’s alright. I had what felt like .2 seconds between each thing. It was quite hard, but I survived. The same thing happened again with my 200 back and the 100 free, but this time I surprised myself. I dropped 4 seconds in the 200 back and like .1 in the 100 free, which I know doesn’t sound like a lot, but it is for a 100 free so I’m happy with it.

Over all I had a pretty good meet this past weekend and I was happy with it. It was the first meet of the season so I think I did alright. I enjoyed sharing how I did on the swim meet last weekend with you guys!

 

Is There Any Benefit To Reading Books You Hate?

Is there any benefits to reading books you hate? In my opinion, there is no benefit to reading books that you are not going to enjoy.

I understand that reading is good for your brain, but why read if you aren’t going to enjoy what you’re reading? It doesn’t make any since!

I know that teachers want you to learn about these myths but, why can’t we just read books that we like. Then if we are supposed to have a quiz on the book, then they just ask us to write a summary, or they ask us who are the main characters and what are their conflicts.

I love reading a book that I will actually enjoy. In my opinion, if I am reading a book that doesn’t catch me in the first chapter, then in the rest of the book I just get lost.

I hope that one day, teachers will consider letting their students read the books that they want to read.
