Goal #2 Movie Review
Monster University Review
Pixar excellently recreated the college lives of monsters in the Monster’s Inc. prequel, Monster’s University. The movie follows the original main characters from the first movie: Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sully” Sullivan. We see how their hatred for each other developed into unbreakable friendship. In the beginning, the two felt that everything between each other was competition, but they soon learned that working together as a team was the best decision to benefit their entire group. In the end, the audience sees how Mike and Sully made their way to the top at a job they love… Monsters Incorporated.
Overall, I give this movie a total of five out of five stars for several reasons. The graphics were visually amazing- especially in 3D. The colors were very vibrant and bright. The animation was also great because it kept up with every little detail. The storyline and script itself were nearly flawless; a perfect balance of humor, suspense and excitement for the audience. They brought back the original characters from Monsters Inc. as well as created brand new characters we’d learned to love. I’d recommend this movie to everyone and anyone because it honestly keeps children, teenagers and adults entertained and there are no dull moments. The movie also incorporated a very important lesson for kids: to try your best, even if people tell you otherwise. In conclusion, Monster’s University did a fantastic job of telling the story of how everyone’s favorite animated monsters came to be.

Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro is a YA mystery book that teens may enjoy.
Tandoori, Tandy for short, Angel is a girl with controlled emotions. She is the daughter of Malcolm and Maud Angel, both successful and hardworking parents who have high expectations for perfection. When her parents Malcolm and Maud Angel are found dead in their bed Tandy, her brothers Harry, Matthew, Hugo, and their mother’s assistant Samantha are all suspected of murder. Tandy takes it upon herself to solve their murder and while investigating she finds out many secrets about her family.
I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters were very interesting and one- of-a-kind. My favorite character was Hugo, Tandy’s little brother, who was a dangerous combination of being hyper and having the strength of an adult man. The authors keep you excited and entertained by throwing in little clues here and there and by revealing lots of new things that lets you discover new and deeper things about many of the characters. This book was a fierce read with many twists and turns and a wonderfully surprising ending.
I would recommend this book to teens that’d enjoy murder mysteries as well as surprising secrets that’ll blow your mind.
Too Late Now
I want to tell you that I love you
But when I look up at your face,
I forget what I want to say
I can't think of anything to do
I just stand up and make a fool of me
Right in front of you
I have zero to nothing of a chance
That I will ever tell you what I feel
Some say it's a myth
But deep down inside, I know what I feel is real
My heart wants to tell you of what I really feel
But I can't seem to find the right words to say
You seem to have stolen my heart
But you won't give me the time of day
How can I tell you what I feel,
When you can't hear me?
I want to tell you that I love you,
But words won't come out of my mouth
Can't you see that you're my one true love?
I need you with me
Together, you and me, we can face it all
And never have to fall
I want to tell you that I love you
But now it's too late now
You love someone else
I know it doesn't matter now, but
I love you

My Crazy Summer
By: Shaylyn N
On May thirty-first, everybody was sitting on the edge of their seats, waiting for the final bell to ring that would change us from seventh graders to eighth graders. At 3:09 P.M. it rang.
My grandma picked me up after school and we talked during the whole ride about what we were going to do together this summer. Little did I know that she was planning to buy me season passes to Six Flags! I was so surprised when she did. She got my family and me the “Gold Membership” so we got a lot of coupons.
One time I went to Six Flags with my friend and my cousins and their friend. We had so much fun! Well... except for when we got stuck on the loop of the Medusa for ten minutes! Even though we weren’t stuck up there for long, it felt like forever! I was so scared. People were looking up at us with wide eyes, afraid we might fall. Finally, some mechanical engineers came and got us down. My friend immediately ran to the bathroom and threw up the pizza we had earlier. It was a good day for the most part, a day I will never forget.
Honestly, no matter how crazy my summer has been, I have to say it was one of my favorite summers ever. It was so much fun. I wish this summer would last forever.
This summer I will always think of as the craziest summer I’ve ever had. I mean, how many other people could say that they’ve gotten stuck on the loop of the Medusa for ten minutes?
I can’t wait to tell everyone about the crazy summer I’ve had! I’ll start off the story with “One fun, crazy day…”
Wind blowing softly –
Leaves rustling in the breeze.
Knobby trees surround me –
An orchard of apple trees.
Wind tossing gently
Blossoms blown around
Padding of a velvet carpet
Of blossoms blown free.
In the breeze is
A scent so faint
Delicate and wild
A haunting Mystery –
Step by step I come closer
To these sweet apple trees
Wizened with age and wisdom they are.
Windfalls on the ground surround
A scent drifts on the breeze
A sweet fruit plucked
A seat on a branch and
A sweet snow-like carpet
Here I am happy and
Here I am sad
Am I the only one to know
This beautiful land?
