In CORE, we watched The Goonies part of yesterday and today all period. It was awesome! I loved the adventure they went on, the inhaler that Mikey would use, and Junk, the chubby klutz. The inhaler in certain parts after a speech or something. Also, at the end how it just gets tossed away. The end of the movie was awesome! I can't believe that the boy was able to switch the marbles out for jewels and get away with it!
My favorite character had to have been Data, I'm the sort of kid that would be inventing things. Also, I'm the girl that has everything on her when you need it. This was a funny movie to me and it was just...wow.
Ender's Game is a book that I'm currently reading. It's set in the future where you can only have two kids, and if you want more you have to pay. The world is united under a single, military based government. Kids have these things called monitors on the back of their necks to monitor and watch their behavior. Andrew "Ender" Wiggin is the main character. He's a boy that ends up going to the Battle School, a place where military gifted children go to become soldiers and commanders. They learn how to survive in battle as the name suggests.
This November, a movie based on this book and the others in the series will come out. It seems to be interesting and accurate on the book. I suggest that you go see it when it finally comes out.
My school is doing a fundraiser for Pennies for Patients. The ribbon color is orange for this fundraiser just like pink is for Breast Cancer. My school officially starts this fundraiser on Monday. I'm pretty sure that many kids will be checking the couch and car for spare change that no one will really care about if it went missing. Other kids might ask their parents, guardians, uncles, aunts, and older siblings for spare change.
I, myself, will be checking three chairs, a hospital bed, and a small couch for spare change along with old wallets, old purses, any pockets, and my clothes. I'm bound to find something in one of these that I'll be able to donate to the school for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Wish me luck with finding change and please donate to the Pennies for Patients fundraiser.
