Mount Everest Collage

December 17, 2009

Curious George represents how curious everyone is about if they will make it to the top or not. Have this unsure feeling in their gut. The clock is represents how they’re kind of on a schedule which makes them feel rushed, especially for Erik because he’s blind. The ice is for how cold it is throughout the whole story. The picture with the person on top of the world is at the ending when they make it to the top of Mount Everst. They have this accomplished feeling like they’ve done it horay!!Then they eye represents how Erik is blind and can’t see. Can’t see what’s going on around you which makes him curious. The cat in the jar is suppose to show how claustrophobic they felt. Like in a sticky situation. Then the foot stool is suppose to mean sturdy. When Erik was going across the part where some people had died he had to be extra careful. Extra sturdy and careful of where he steps so a chunk of ice doesn’t fall and take him with it. The orange face is showing fear, everyone showed fear through out the expedition.


Most Challenged

December 4, 2009

The most challenging thing that I’ve ever done was being able to stay in the track team. It’s very hard for me to start something and finish it. Like sports at school because when I try out for it I don’t really know what I’m doing. That’s why I quit and it seems like the coaches don’t help. Like in basketball I was doing something wrong the coach told me to go home if I couldn’t do it right. That made me really mad when I tried my best. When I went out for the track team the coach didn’t put me down. Instead he like said things that made me want to try harder and not quit. When I came in first and second place it made me feel really good inside and out. Although it was hard work running forever with my ankles and thighs hurting and sweating up a storm I did it! If you ever face a challenge you should always do your best. The end result will surprise you making you feel like you’ve accomplished something and to never quit.
