“Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover”

Image

Recently, in class, we’ve been reading The Count of Monte Cristo, and I think the story plot is pretty interesting. In the story, the main character has multiple personalities and disguises. The different disguises mask his true identity, and what he portrays on the outside is different from what he thinks on the inside. It’s like what they all say: Don’t judge a book by its cover.

These treats reminded me about the main character in The Count of Monte Cristo. They’re dessert in disguises. 🙂

During English class, we are currently reading A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. It is one of those books where you have to reread it over and over again to understand its contents since there are deeper meanings hidden behind the words. Sometimes, I would read it and wonder what the chapter was about. When you read a book repeatedly, you discover new things. You might find out new things that you never caught before in the text or finally understand the message the story was conveying. Rereading the book is helpful since you might not understand the content now, but after a while, if you read it again, you’ll understand it better when you’re able to relate to the book. You will find a new deeper meaning to the words instead of just simply taking it from the context. When reading A Tale of Two Cities, you have to think outside of the box. Once you understand the content, it’s that moment of pride where you feel like you’ve achieved something.

Finding that Shade

Image

People have their own perspective on everything. We are all unique individuals who see things differently through our own eyes, and our thoughts reflect that. In class, there was this talk about everyone being their own shade of grey. It portrays their range of thoughts. In the color scale ranging from black to white, even though one might think that he is in the color shade of white, he is still in the color shade of grey. Not black. Not white. Grey. Our creative minds allow us to have an infinite number of thoughts in which they may lean toward the dark color of black or just white. However, it all results in a grey area no matter what. So what shade of grey do you find yourself in?
