Color — it is so important in our lives, we use it to find areas of buildings and know when to go for traffic. What is the real importance of color in our lives??

Color is everywhere. It’s in rainbows, the sky, the grass, apples, oranges and so much more. In Lois Lowry’s The Giver, the characters live in a society where there is no color, and Jonas is one of the only ones that can see color. I think that the color symbolizes the ability to see that there’s something wrong in that society. It reminds me of the saying, “You can’t have a rainbow without a little rain,” the color shows that there’s no pain in that society but there’s also no real happiness.

I think that color is very important in our lives today, but because we are so used to it we don’t appreciate it as much as we should. How would the sky look if it wasn’t blue or if the grass wasn’t green, or if the amber waves of grain were actually just gray waves of grain?


Dallas Volleyball Tournament

This weekend I am going to Dallas for a volleyball tournament and I am so excited!!! I love playing volleyball and I am really hoping to win. But I really don’t care if we lose I just want to have fun.

On Friday, we are leaving to go to the Sheraton (I think that is how you spell it) hotel and we are staying there for 3 nights. The games start on Saturday and I am really excited. I’m going to be missing Monday and I’m pretty happy about that. I think that we have the skills to win and that we can beat some really good teams.

I’m super excited to go and I am really looking forward to having a lot of fun with my friends. Some other teams are going and some of the people on those teams are my friends and I am hoping that we can play against them.

Percy Jackson Movies

Percy Jackson. I hate the movies. I absolutely HATE the movies, they are horrid.

Reason #1: The characters aren’t even the right age. In the first movie Percy is 16,but in the book he’s 12. That’s a 4 year difference!! Same with Annabeth and Grover. Luke is the right age but in the books he’s supposed to be 4 years older then Percy.

Reason #2: The characters don’t even look like they are supposed to! Annabeth in the book has blonde, curly hair and stormy gray eyes, but in the movie she has brown, straight hair and blue eyes. Grover is black when in the book he is supposed to be white (This is NOT racist, I am just saying what is in the book), and he does not have crutches. Percy is supposed to have sea green eyes, but he has brown eyes and his hair is supposed to be messy.

Reason #3: The storyline is wrong. Probably the most important reason, the storyline is wrong; they changed the whole plot The whole movie is about finding the pearls, but in the book Percy was handed the pearls at the bottom of the Mississippi River after falling off the Gateway Arch. Also a lot of the characters weren’t even there, Ares never even made an appearance in the movie, Luke never gave a shield to Percy, and Hades never had his helm stolen. Percy never fought with Echidna, and Posiedon never made a special cabin for Percy.

All in all, the movies were not up to par, in fact, they never even got into the hole.
