      “Music is always being made but only sometimes enjoyed”

   

 

 

      I listen to a lot of music, some of it is loud and crazy while other songs are clam and quite. One of the great things about music is you can listen to it or make it anywhere at anytime. Music can set the mood for how the day will go, I personally like more modern music, espeacially the catchy songs. I would not really consider rap as music, I feel like rap is just speaking in rhythm on a beat. I first started listening to a lot of music when I started doing theatre 5 years ago. We had to sing some songs in the shows but I never found the songs in shows that catchy. Sometimes when I get home from school I will just put on my headphones and listen to music. I do this to either calm myself down or to get myself excited for a game. Normally when I listen to music I can trace back a certain set of notes back to a different song. I also used to think that background music and movie soundtracks were pretty cool. All of the different music represents the certain mood of that scene. Different music can affect people in different ways. My dad likes a different type of music and he always plays music from when he was younger really loud when we are in the car. I thought that eventually I would enjoy the older music but I haven’t really gotten to like it. Music is great because you can listen to it to cheer you up or get yourself excited and different songs can make you feel different things. I am a huge fan of music and am interested to see what music I will like as I get older.

 


Reciting IF

Johnny Drapeau

IF

 

 

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
 
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
 
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
 
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

 


My poem

Johnny D

Fitz English

 

I have chosen the poem if. As we read it aloud in class I really enjoyed it and thought that I would pick it to memorize. As I have started to memorize it I am still not exactly sure what it means but I am starting to understand the meaning. All of the things the man talks about in the poem is what everyone should strive to be. I am excited to keep memorizing this poem and preform it in front of the class.


Our Classic Video

      I am pretty proud of the video we have created. Although the video took us a while and we needed to plan out what we were going to do it was definetly worth it when we finished. We worked pretty well as a team but Sam, Kimball and I did get distracted some of the time. When we were focused we were able to get a lot done and we really cared how our video turned out in the end, I believe the work was pretty evenly split up. Overall I happy with how our video turned out.
