We are doing Colonial America in class. It is really cool!. This is about who I am, what I do in my freetime, and my backstory…
I am a soldier. I am 18 years old. My mother died when I was born. And my dad got shot by the Spanish armada. So I went to the Southern Colonies because I didn’t have anyone to live with. I live by myself in a little house next to the blacksmith and slave quarters. In my freetime I work at the blacksmith as a gunsmith. I make the guns I use to fight off the natives and the Spanish. I am friendly with all the slaves and indentured servants. I work for Scott Peterson (The Plantation Owner). We have an militia that I am the head soldier of.
I really enjoy being a soldier because we are starting the american revolution. I will be a big part in this. I am very excited!!
In class, we had to create colonies in groups. We had to pick jobs and vote for the governor. I am the head soldier in the militia fighting against the Spanish and Natives. In my free time, I work as a gunsmith. I use the guns I make to fight. I really like being a soldier! We are starting the American Revolution, I will really enjoy it. I am really excited because we are starting to build our colony! I am really excited!
We are reading a book called Stargirl in class by Jerry Spinelli. My thoughts on Stargirl are that, One, I think that Leo and Kevin are curious about Stargirl and what she is doing, and two, Leo is very determined to try and find stuff about Stargirl that is unknown. I think Stargirl is a very interesting story about a school that is boring, and Stargirl comes and lightens the mood. In this school no one wants to stand out. They just want to blend in, not to be noticed. I think this book is very interesting and confusing… But I like it! I think the moral of this book so far, is that you should not be afraid to stand out, just be yourself.
“Be yourself, others can’t judge it.”
“You are unique, only one you.”
These 6 word memoir’s might mean a lot to other people and their lives.
