5/12/17: Love, Chage, and Heroes (AP Title: Don Quijote de La Mancha)

In Don Quixote de La Mancha by Miguel Cervantes, the notion that  Love makes us do crazy things takes on a new form . Don Quixote, or Quijote in the Spanish language, is determined to be a knight-errant and he will defeat anyone who stands in his way of showing his worthiness to his True Love and princess, Dulcinea del Toboso.  Quixote's plan took a detour as his mission continued on. He believed that everything he was doing was good as long as he did it in the name of Dulcinea del Toboso and that's what we as people (not just characters from a story) do often. We make our statements as a testament to the good that we hope and wish we could do, but we make excuses for our fantasies and wrong doings a long the way and we blame Love for our mistakes. We give love a bad name. We chase crazy fantasies and try to prove ourselves worthy of a good cause because we want to be more than a generalization, we want to be extravagant, an anomaly. We feel as if we prove ourselves then the m…

4/23/17: El año en que nos desbaratamos

I finished my book, finally. I mean it didn't take me that long to read it (it literally took me a week) and I really enjoyed this book, but I'm glad that its over and I can move on to another one. This is the sixth book that I've read this year, and I'm a tad disappointed because by now I could have read eight books, but it's okay, at least I'm still on track with my books. By the next entry hopefully I will be finished with both my AP Title and this book.

As of now, I have begun to readThe Year We Fell Apartby Emily Martin. It's a very interesting book. And as always, I've chosen a romance (So predictable). I feel like this book is gonna be a little bit more than a romance this time, like yeah the main character is in love with her best friend, but there's also something weird going on with her family and she's dealing with it in a...not so good way. This is in no way a spoiler, but it does give you a tad of incite before reading the book. Her…

4/7/17: Life Reading Goal

Hello, my name is Eboni Wescott. I am a sophomore at Hebron High School. Fredrick Douglas once stated that "Once you learn you will be forever free" and I really do agree with this quote because it explains the main reason why I read. I love reading because I feel like I can escape to another place and look into their lives and see their point of view. It isn't always that fun being Eboni, so escaping to someone else's world no matter if it's 5 minutes or 50, it's freeing. Ever since I was in kindergarten the library used to be my favorite place. Whenever we would go during class time, I would always be the first in line and when I returned I would have at least 5 books with me. Now that I am older I am still the exact same way. Reading is as much of a part of me as my heart.

My goal to read this year is about 6 to 7 books, if not more. I've already gone through about 4 books and I'm on my 5th one now titled Emmy and Oliver. I've delved into a lo…
