Blog 7: HG Chapters 15-16 Reflection

These 2 paragraphs made me feel amazed, and suspicious. I was amazed because Rue knows lot's of stuff Katniss didn't, She knows how to heal burns... When Rue actually believed Katniss even though she wasn't lying got me thinking, what if some one else says the same thing and she believes them but Rue doesn't know. I was also shocked that Peeta survived the knife attack and escaped from the careers. I was shocked of what happened because I wasn't expecting all of that and how it happened. I thought that Katniss would fail on trying to make the mines explode but she did it. Also how Rue got the careers to come to the fire.

Blog 6: Setting

It's important to the plot because a lot of items in the arena can kill people. The setting can help people or it can kill people. They have lots of traps. The game makers can control the Hunger Games. IF the games was made underwater or in the desert the plot would be different, maybe the people that died would not die in this place. Some of the things that Katniss needed like the pond, mud, and trees wouldn't be there. They could've had different things to kill people, and different animals.

Blog 5: Dear President Snow

Dear President Snow, 

You should stop the Hunger Games because people kill others to win. It's wrong to make this a game and I don't know why you guys do this but it's not fair for their families and friends. I don't know how you find this fun to watch. The game I think should stop because think of your family going to the game and being forced to kill to survive. It wouldn't be fun to watch know, would it.

 Why won't you stop the games if you know people are dying? Aren't you afraid that people would rebel to you? I wouldn't like being a tribute and kill people to survive, would you? When the tributes leave do you feel any pain because your the one controlling this and making it keep going. I would stop if I was you.

Sincerely, Emanuel Hernandez

Blog 4: Katniss and Me

I think Katniss is doing good and kind of bad at the same time right now. She is showing that she is brave so people are going to get mad and try to kill her.

I think she is brave for shooting the gamemakers pig. That she also is confident.

I think she is good on lots of her skills. I think she possesses archery, what plans to eat, and where to shoot the animals.

I wouldn’t shoot the pig because I would be scared and I would know what would happen if I get a high score. People are going to try and kill me. Everything else I would’ve done.

Blog 3: Fashion

The clothes we wear says what we like (Style.) I think what we can also afford. If someone has clothes that they don’t like they should probably not say nothing. Our clothes tell people a lot like our personality, religion, and culture. Our clothes tell people idea to people about our style.  Each person has their own mind so they think different then you about your clothes. Clothes tell a lot about you so people would be wondering why you like that.  Some people might be inspired by it. Or people like it for fashion. We tell our selves what clothes mean. Our mind tells us.

Blog 2: Perspective

Gales Perspective

Today was the reaping I woke up early to meet Catnip. I saw Catnip and started walking to her. When I was there with her I asked her to guess what I have shoot. I show her and she starts laughing. It was a piece of bread with an arrow in it. She took a bite of it and said, “Mm, still warm.” She asks me how much did it cost. I tell her “Just a squirrel. Think the old man was feeling sentimental this morning.” I say, “Even wished me luck.” “Well everybody seems a little bit closer today, don’t we?” Says Catnip. Catnip pulls up a cheese and says Prim left it for them. I say “Thank you, Prim. We’ll all have a real feast,” then I mimic Effie trinket and say “I almost forgot, Happy Hunger Games!” I pluck a few black berries. “And may the ods-,” I throw one of the blackberries to Catnip and she catches it and I started again, “-ever be in your favor.” She laughs and then I pull out a knife to cut the bread. I place goat cheese, a basil leaf, and berries on each piece of bread.

I tell her we can leave the district but she had a point why not to because if we leave who would take care of both of our family. We were the ones the hunted for them. Catnip says, “I never want to have kids,” I say “I might. If we didn’t live here,” She said irritated, “But you do.” “Forget about it,” I snap back. I just think how does talking about leaving turn into a conversation of having kids. Later she asks me what should we do now, I said, ”Let’s go fish at the lake.” We have a fair amount of fish. On our way home we stop at the hob, a black market. We trade the fish for good bread and salt. We see Madge and I tell her that she has a pretty dress. She looked at me not saying anything then she says. Well, if I end up going to the Capitol, I want to look nice, don’t I?”I got confused and I say, “You wont be going to the Capitol” I just think of how many entries she has. Later she tells Catnip “Good Luck.”

I go to the reaping. I’m hoping they don’t call someone I know. I’m looking at Effie trinket and Haymitch because he’s drunk and she thinks the Hunger games is some kind of funny battle. She laughs because she can’t play the games. I’m here bored when she’s trying to make jokes. She finally gets to choose a slip. When she says the name I looked at Prim and Catnip. “Why? I kept thinking in my head.” When Prim starts walking all I hear is “I volunteer,” “I volunteer as tribute.” It was Catnip. She grabs prim and pulls her out and I grab her so she won’t go to her. Then Catnip goes up the stage and Effie tells us to clap but we don’t. I Just see Catnip up there hooping she will win. I’m going to help her family while she’s not here.

Blog One: Hunger Games Intro

I think the Hunger Games is interesting. They give good details of people and places. In the book it also goes back and say they characters met each other. They also explain events, and their past. I also like how Katniss volunteered and the lady darted clapping and now one else did.
