Cuéntame que hiciste este fin de semana:
Este fin de semana voy a visitar a mi familia en otra ciudad. Vamos a visitar una feria y a mis abuelos. Mis abuelos nos van a preparar una carne asada para hacer en tacos y burritos con guacamole y salsa. También vamos a ver varias películas de cuando mis abuelos eran jóvenes.
Journal prompt: If there was something in your life you could forget (a person, place, thing, or something you saw or witnessed) what would it be and why would you want to forget it?
I would like to forget the time my pet rabbit died. It was given to me by my grandfather when I was very small and not old enough to handle any responsibility but I still loved that bunny very much. I still remember the day it died perfectly; I'd let the bunny outside its cage because I wanted to play with it and it ran off into the street and got run over by a car. I saw the whole thing and I started crying, which prompted my parents to come out and see what had happened. I really wish I had taken better care of that bunny but I have not had the courage to have another pet since my bunny. I wish I could forget that day because it was horrible and also because it is stopping me from giving another animal a home since I would like to adopt a dog or cat in the future if I can get over my bunny.
What are your thoughts concerning the ending of the novel we read last night? Do you think the character died by their own hand or not? Why? Who was the culprit, if any?
The story was interesting although the characters themselves were bland and quite boring compared to the actions of the novel. I think the main character of John was killed by the antagonist indirectly by being tricked into killing himself. It's a bit tricky because, even though John died by jumping into the pit on his own volition, it was because the antagonist convinced him it was the only way to save the world. John would not have ended his life otherwise if not for the antagonist, which makes the antagonist guilty in the context of the story.
