Luke Schoffstall commented on Derek C.'s blog post Q&A: How Do They Get a Model Ship in a Bottle
"Great Blog. I liked how you explained this books in many different ways while also keeping about the same book. To be honest I have never read a facts book, maybe I'll try it out."

C. Radzik commented on Derek C.'s blog post World War Z
"Just finished World War Z it is a very good book I highly recommend it. But the movie looked bad because it showed zombies running jumping and climbing that isn't what zombies are able to do. "

"Great blog.  I thought it was inspiring how Jobs got whatever he wanted through what ever means he had, but in some cases, I felt he went too far."

Derek C. commented on Emmanuel Mensah's blog post Alex rider the next James Bond?
"Great blog!  I remember reading the Alex Rider story with the clones a few years ago.  I think it'd be difficult to kill your own clone because you're basically killing yourself."

Derek C. commented on Trevor plunkett's blog post How would feel if you woke up in someone else's body?
"Great blog.  I think waking up in another body would be very confusing, but interesting as you learn more about the person who's body you took over."

Derek C. commented on Sophia Peng's blog post push bi saffr
"Great blog! I'll be sure to check out Push.  This reminds me of Flowers for Algernon because the grammar and spelling in it starts off poor then gets better as the protagonist gets more educated."

SlamNation - Taylor Mali - "Like Totally Whatever"

"Great video.  Made me think about how much I say "you know?" and how I make some sentences sound like questions when they aren't meant to be."

The Giver

Posted on May 27, 2013 at 10:19pm 27 Comments

If you haven’t read The Giver, you should definitely read it.  It’s a fantastic novel that takes place in a society that appears at first to be a utopia, but we later find out it is a dystopia.  There is no poverty, unemployment, discrimination, change in weather in the society, but there is also no freedom, individuality, or even color in it.  The people in the society are placed into family units and their whole lives planned out.

I read The Giver by Louis Lowry many…


One second every day

Posted on May 22, 2013 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

After watching this TED talk, I was inspired to do something memorable every day of my life.  This is very difficult for me because most weekdays are very generic for me with school and everything.   I realized that I can't remember what I did most days. Even when people remind me about them, I have difficulties remembering.  When Cesar Kuriyama talked about how "time starts blurring and blending…

     I found it interesting how you could see Charlie getting more…


Jurassic Park

     If you haven't read Jurassic Park, I would highly recommend you to read it.  It is a very exciting novel about a dinosaur park on a small island called Isla Nublar.  The park is filled with genetically engineered dinosaurs cloned from dinosaur DNA found in mosquitoes inside amber.  The builder of the park, John Hammond, invited 2 consultants to come to the island tour the park and put Hammond's investors at ease. 

     Hammond groups the consultants with his…
