Thoughts On Animal TestingšŸ¤”

     I believe that we should NOT test on these animals. We are abusing them without their consent and since they can't talk or communicate with us in anyway, we treat them like crap. Their are many other ways we could test products to be safe for humans. For example, in vegan products, they use patches of old human skin to test if it is safe for us humans. It doesn't make sense for us to test products on other animals so it could be safe for us. Now does it? We should test on old skin patches to see if it's harmful or helpful for us. Now if you're talking about how we should treat a polar bear vs  a grasshopper, I say we should treat them the same because that wouldn't be fair towards the animal.

     Testing on other animals could cause a different chemical reaction then on a human so it would only be logical if we tested on our skin patches. There are plenty on vegan products that work and don't abuse those poor animals. Us humans believe we are more intelligent than most animals like chickens or cows. We are being inhuman by the way we are treating these innocent animals. They give us no consent, they can't communicate with us or say how they feel. It is never okay to test on animals. Even if you had a drug o save all these animals it isn't right. Like for example, what if someone killed your family member and said," Take $1,000,000 for your lost. I am sorry for killing your loved one." That money isn't going to bring back your loved one, now is it? It's like if they killed them and said sorry. Sorry wasn't going to bring them back to life. Saying the word"sorry" isn't going to make ANYTHING better.

      If I asked you what animal would you eat, a dog or a cow, obviously you would say a cow because us humans favortize animals. We are bias towards the dog because it's our pet and how could we ever eat a dog right? Wrong. Many people in other countries eat dogs as a delicacy.We need to stop treating these animals like trash and think about, what if that was you? What if you were that animal? Would you like it if someone forcefully made you have a kid, take away your child and slit your throats when you are still breathing? Don't forget they also torture these animals. I believe we could all be a little more "human".

Introducing myself.

Hello everyone, my name is Wendy. I am a student attending middle school. I love to read, write, draw, play video games, play the piano and sing. So far, 8th grade is amazing. I love how challenging work is and how the teachers are strict to help us be prepared for high school.I believe that I am doing exeptionaly well in biology. I love to know more things about the human body like why do we get our genes and where do we get them. I love the whole idea of finding out new things and making hypotheses.

     The tittle of my book is called"Pants on fire". I know that pants on fire can mean that you lie a lot or not a lot of people trust you. I think this goes well with the book's meaning because the main character,Katie lies allot. For starters, she lied about Tommy coming back to town, she lied to her boyfriend about being sick to see Tommy and she lied to Tommy and Seth by making out with Eric(which is not her boyfriend) and also because Tommy caught her so she said she didn't.

     Where is the object located? In Mr.Bird's shop or any other shop.What does the character do with the object?What Katie(main character) does with the object is take pictures with it since its a camera she really wants but it's really expensive. She takes pictures with them so she can print out photos for her career. She pays off her camera each day.I think the camera represents confidents or courage.

     I think another theme for this book is protection. The reason why is because Katniss always protects Prim and her mom. She is always there for them and she is the one who hunts for them.Gale could also be another example because he hunts for his family of 7 and he splits his finds with Katniss.Rue also protects people in a way because she did the camp fire and that was protecting Katniss so she could blow up their food. She also protected Katniss by helping her wounds and teaching her about the plants.Peeta was also protecting Katniss by helping her run when she got stung by the tracker jackers and when he gave Katniss the loaf of bread. Even though he knew he would get whipped or abused by his mother.

~You should protect those who you love in your life.

     I think that Rue is dead because of what the book said in the last chapter.Katniss describes how Rue was on the ground. She was under a net, probably got into a trap. According to the book,"She just has time to reach her hand through the mesh and say my name before the spear enters her body." (Chapter 17 page 229 on the bottom) By that I think the author meant that she was in a net until someone put a spear through her body. I think that the boy from district 1 was the one who killed her because he was the only one that had a spear when Katniss described the Mine scene.

     I think that Katniss making an alliance with Rue is a really good idea. I think it's a good idea because she treated her stings, she taught her about the glasses and she saved her life with the tracker jackers. Rue is a surviver, even though she is like prim, she knows what to eat and what not to eat. She knows how to climb trees like Katniss but way better. They can make a plan to kill all the careers, one by one. Then the could fight against each other or something like that. I like how Rue is so gentle and delicate but so strong and a survivor at the same time. Katniss made a good choice to team up with her.

     I think chapter 12 and 13 were interesting because of everything that was happening. I was surprised how she survived the fire because she got shot. I am really disappointed in Peeta for joining the careers but I think it's part of his plan. He is probably gonna go against them and kill them with Katniss. I think Rue is pointing at something that can maybe help Katniss survive or escape because I think Rue wants to protect her in a way.

     The book that I am reading is called,"Pants On Fire"I think that if the setting changed for the choices she made like making out with Eric, it wouldn't change the choice that she made. Like if they were doing a test in the principals office, Katie would probably still let Sidney cheat off her. She would probably still make out with Eric if it was the library or something and she would still talk to Timmy like at the pools, or at her school. I still think this book is about loyalty.

     My book is called "Pants On Fire" by Meg Cabot. So far, I think the book is talking about loyalty. First of all, when Katie let her friend, Sidney cheat off her, that was being loyal of her, especially since she didn't tell on her or anything.The second reason is because she was making out with Eric(which was NOT her boyfriend) and that is saying that she can't be loyal. The third reason was when she was talking to Timmy(I'm guessing they had a bad relation ship or something) so they can keep their friendship.

Dear diary,

     Well today I saw the girl with red hair again. From the woods? I was in abrupt. When I saw her today though, she didn't speak and her eyes were not dark, they were just droopy,they cut her tongue as well. I was speaking to Peeta on the roof and I noticed how smart he is. Already having a strategy, I mean if he lied that easily to the capitol, he could lie to me as well. He was saying how his father knew my mother back in the day when they were growing up together. My mother never told me this, but why would she hide it from me? Peeta said his dad likes Prim and I and he wishes he could have daughters. I just can't put it together, this so called"puzzle". Even though I'm not going to be alive for long, I know that the red headed girl will probably l enjoy seeing me die in the games.

     Peeta was also asking some questions about you. He was asking if we were related and if you came to say good bye to me one last time. I miss you, and how we used to hunt together in the woods. Trading with the baker or in the black market. Remember that?

~Love,
Katniss

My book is called,"Pants on fire" and Katie was describing how Tommy came up and then said hi to her. I think in Sidney's perspective, it would be describing it even more than Katie did and would have said something like this,"I saw his tan skin, with his huge muscles dripping with water and his hands on his red hair. His eyes were amber and so beautiful in the sunlight. He was walking close to us and I said to Katie,"Look he is coming!"Then he walked towards us and said in his manly voice,"Hi,Katie" I didn't know Katie knew him! he was so tall and perfect, I wish he was my boyfriend! I would break up with mine to go out with this hottie." I think that's something she would say based on her personality and so on. Also so far, I don't know what Tommy did to Katie or what because Katie doesn't like to talk about him.

Today I continue reading,"Pants On Fire." By Meg Cabot. In the story, there is this girl named Katie and she has a boyfriend named Seth and a best friend named Sidney. She was working when all of a sudden this guy named Eric took the cake from out of her hands, placed it down on the table..... and kissed her on the lips. The decision she made though was to kiss him back, even though she has a boyfriend and later in the story it says they have done it before. By her actions I think that Katie is kind of unreliable or not trust worthy.

Today I am reading,"Pants on fire" by Meg Cabot. The main character in this story is Katie Ellison.She has a boyfriend named Seth and works at a place called,"Quahog"So in the story it talks about her boyfriend and best friend Sidney.In one part of the book, she said she was in 2nd grade and she sat next to the most popular girl in school,(aka Sidney). She let her cheat off her spelling test in 2nd grade because she felt pity for her when she was a wreck that day.I wouldn't do this even if they begged me for it. I once had this happen to me in my math class,this girl(not saying who) asked me for the answers for multiple problems but I simply just ignored her. I wasn't going to just give her the answers like that.By this action that she has done,  feel like she is too generous or she is someone you can easily take advantage of to get what you want,when you want. I also feel like she is kind in a way because she let Sidney copy off her paper just because she was a wreck and in a bad mood because of her cat getting surgery.

Dear Prim and mom,

     So far, I hate the capitol. I hate how these rich people enjoy the tributes killing each other just for the sake of their entertainment. Peeta has already planned a strategy,the strategy to kill me and the others. Haymitch is always drunk in the train and honestly doesn't give a crap about what people think of him. I am eating really well here.There is always some food that is left over here.Are you guys eating well? Mom how is Prim?Is she doing alright? Is the Baker trading with her like I told her to do?Is she feeling alright about the whole "volunteering as tribute"thing? You better not let me down like you did years back.

     I know that I am not going to make the games,but promise me that no matter what, Prim is going to be safe and well fed. I want to know why the people in the capitol find it"exciting" seeing kids fight to the death.This alone makes me feel disgusted. Is it because they have no pity for us poor people or they are just so ignorant to judge us just by our manners like Effie did. I can still remember when dad was here with us and he would always come home with a bunch of coal dust on his body. The only thing you and Prim have to worry about is food. If you know how to get the food for you and Prim, I won't be mad at you. You can't leave us like you did.

    Mother I know what you are thinking,"Why would she have the audacity to volunteer?" Well the answer to that is that I did it for Prim.No one else but Prim. Mom I ask you this, please don't let Prim do the teaseree. No matter what happens to me, don't let her do it!Prim is like a flower, so delicate, so beautiful and yet so innocent. You have to protect her if I'm not there for her.I can't do everything for the family you know, you have to commit to her now more than ever.

~Love,
Katniss

                               How I feel about blogging


2-5-16

        ♛❤I don't really blog much but I do like to write. I think that the idea of how everyone could see my blog is like a pro and a con. It's a pro because maybe they can help me if I had a problem like in school or something and I blogged about it. The con is that people could hate on my blog or post mean things about my personal life.Also they could screen shot it and if it's a secret or something,they can show everyone in the school. And also, the blog title could be different than the actual story or bloggers keep talking about something else instead of the blog tittle topic,which is really annoying and a waste of my time in my opinion.❤♛
