This week was really weird. We only had a teacher one day, and I kind of felt a little lost because of it. I am not a fan of missing school, or of having my teachers miss school either. It throws me, and the whole class, off our game. On Monday, the only thing we really did was pick our groups and the book we were reading. I also griped about having to do another group project, but I know that this will most likely benefit me in the end. Anyway, my group appears to be pretty solid, although I feel like Erica and I will take control of the whole thing. Which is fine with me. We did the few things that we were supposed to write this week, and now we’re focused on getting our book read.
My group chose to read The Kite Runner, and I know that it is a fantastic book. The first book I read in class this year, A Thousand Splendid Suns, has the same author and it is now one of my favorite books. I am about halfway into The Kite Runner as of this moment, and I am totally invested in the story. When I am not reading it, I find myself thinking about it, and I love when I read a book and that happens. Khaled Hosseini is a phenomenal author in my opinion. His stories could be true, even though the are fiction.
I am the writer for my group, and I am happy that I was able to obtain that position. I think that my group has more strength in writing in total than it does in the digital/technology aspect of this project, but I’m not worried and I’m sure we will make it work.
