Colonial America – Pt 2 – Persona

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!!

Colonial America – Pt 1 – Overview

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.
