The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

When I did not want to work...


”Do or do not, there is no try” - Yoda



      Nobody likes to work. While read chapter two from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer I didn’t want to work. Before, and during the time I read chapter two from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, I didn’t want to work or do the annotation. I just wanted to stop doing it, and go do something else with my life. 

     During English class, my English teacher Fitz had us do the annotation for chapter two of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I didn’t want to do the work since I don’t enjoy reading; however, I knew I had to get the work done. During the time of me reading it was easy for me to find words and phrases, but the quotes and themes made me want to explode with tears. They were just very annoying to pick out and I’d rather do anything other than having to find them. I just didn’t want to do the work. I started conversations with myself in my head. What was I gonna do later tonight? What was I gonna do tomorrow? When will I ever get this Midyear exam sheet done? I just didn’t want to do the work, but like I said before, I just knew I had to. So I continue going through and no matter how much I wanted to distract myself, I made sure I wouldn’t, and eventually I got it done, and I was relieved. I threw that assignment behind me and I did not have to find any more quotes or themes. I felt great. 

      At first I did not want to work, and I wanted to quit, but I got the job done. I didn’t want to do the work, I didn’t want to find the quotes and themes, and I didn’t want to read through the whole chapter just to find them. But when I did I got the work done and I was very happy with myself. In the end, I learned an important lesson. 

No matter how bad you don’t want to do something you are required to do, just get it over with, and you will be fine.
