Dedication Page I dedicate this book to all of the farmers that give us delicious foods to supply the stores and our bodies. Also, to the school and my parent for teaching me about the things I know.


Views I’ve grown up in a good Christian home with good morals and values. My views I feel are based off of those things that I have learned. My parents and teachers have taught me very well on what to do. I’ve been taught to “Be Good” and respect other people. Some things, though, I feel are not the best.


Responsibility Schools have to be very responsible for their students to make sure they are safe. Schools can’t just let the kids follow their own rules. They need to have something like a small society inside of school. If you do something wrong then the school is responsible in a way for what you did. Schools are responsible for punishment for the kids that break the rules. Parents also have to be responsible for their children. The parents are responsible for almost everything their child does because even if they don’t notice it their kids are watching them and learning from all of their actions. Parents are responsible for keeping their behavior good and showing them what is right and what is wrong so in the future their kids will know what to do.


Justice vs. Punishment Seeking justice is possibly finding the person that did something to a loved one or yourself and putting them into jail or getting onto them. The desire to punish is different. The desire to punish is if they hurt someone you care about, or you, and you think that they should be tortured or get even or have revenge by hurting someone they care about.


Judgment (12 Angry Men) Judge and Jurors the boy is not guilty and I have evidence to prove it. The boy was at the movies when the killing took place. Also he was shorter than his dad and it would have been awkward for him to stab his father in that position. The boy was smart enough with the knife that he would have made and underhand stab. The boy wasn’t home at the time of the killing. He went and met his friends then went to the movie theater. The boy was away from his house for a few hours and couldn’t have been home in time for the killing. Also, the stab wound was down into his father and that would have been an awkward way to stab a taller person than you. The boy also would have known that and went underhand. He is experienced with the knife. The kind of knife he was using would have also been an underhand strike. He was sent to reform school for knife fighting so he should have known how a switch blade works. It would have taken him too long to turn the blade around and do the overhand strike instead of a quick underhand. I can see where the boy would be guilty, because he had a motive, but how much hatred would you have to have to drive a knife into someone’s heart? Also, the woman saw the killing, but she had glasses and no one wears glasses when she goes to bed. The boy is not guilty, because he is too smart for that. If he killed his father and ran out of the room then he would have had to come back and wipe the prints off later with the risk of the police being there. He would have had to be smart then dumb then smart again then dumb.


Purpose of Rules The purpose of rules is to have order among people. If my life didn’t have rules I would not know what to do and there would be total chaos.


Grouping People join groups to fit in or “be cool.” They also join groups so they can have fun and/ or help people like in FCCLA, History Club, FBLA, and FCA. Some people join clubs just because they want to be in a club or group. Also, you join a group in class because your friends are in it or you work well with the people in your group. Sometimes people don’t join groups because they want to sometimes it’s because they feel pressure.


Fun I had an assignment in history class that made me think of Kurt. We were learning about farming in one section so I figured I would write about a farmer and amp him up a little. I thought that mythology is a pretty cool thing so I merged Greek mythology with a farmer and got Kurt the Magical Farmer. I live in Arkansas and I figured that some farmers are a little over looked sometimes so I wanted to incorporate them into my project.


The Beginning Kurt the magical farmer is an amazing person. He has all kinds of amazing fruits and veggies. These veggies and fruits aren’t ordinary at all even though they look like it. He grows speed corn, portal beans, and time travel cabbage. Kurt the magical farmer is also a brave and noble warrior in times of need. He enchanted his sword to make it shoot fire and enchanted his shield to make it do what he desires, to an extent, and made them harder than steel. There are a few crops that he keeps hidden in his bunker farm that nobody knows of except for him. When needed Kurt will sell crops to family and warriors, but never his secret crops. Someday I may write of them and what they do, but not today. In his warrior times he has saved friends and slayed monsters. He is the ultimate hero.


Power Turtle One beautiful day of the farm Kurt the Magical Farmer was getting lonely so he decided to get a pet. He thought of many animals and thought how about a turtle? Kurt went down to the small river, which flowed past his house, with a fishing pole and bait. He was fishing because he needed fish and to keep an eye out for turtles. When he was about to leave he had plenty of fish but not a single sign of a turtle. Kurt started heading back through the woods when he heard a noise and saw a glimpse of a shell. He was ecstatic and ran over picked up the turtle and ran home. Kurt mixed together many potions and gave them to the turtle. It glowed for a bit then Wham! He became ripped and powerful and could talk. Kurt had just created the first power turtle named Samuel.


Power Turtle 2 This is the story of Samuel the Magic Power Turtle. Once he drank the potion Kurt the Magical Farmer gave him he could do almost anything. He and Kurt hung out all of the time and helped each other with various problems. They became best friends. One day the two were very bored and trying to think of something to do when they heard a strange sound. They looked out the window and a horrifying beast was charging around and smashing the invisible magic force field surrounding the garden.


Two Worlds I didn’t know exactly where the train was going. After paying my fare I simply stood on the platform waiting for it to whisk me away to somewhere, anywhere but here and that’s when it happened a portal opened up right in front of me and I was pushed in. All of the sudden I was on a farm in some weird kind of place. Then a man dressed in armor with a turtle walking behind him said to me, “I have chosen you to help me defeat the evil lord that is leaking into your world.” “Who are you?” I asked “Pardon me,” he said “I am Kurt, Kurt the Magical Farmer.”


Da Frawg Once upon a time there lived a frog. His name was Jimmy van Periwinkle. Jimmy van Periwinkle was no ordinary frog. He was a power ranger, a member of the CIA, and a professional football player. He was also very good with the ladies. Then one evening he was in the movie theater and there coming down the aisle was Dracula his arch nemesis. Back in kindergarten Dracula was at lunch with him and spilled his mashed potatoes and gravy on him and for the rest of the day he looked like a monster potato blob and everyone laughed at him. Throughout the years Dracula has been growing ever more evil and now plans to take over the world. Jimmy van Periwinkle jumped out of his seat and roundhouse kicked Dracula in the ear thus causing his head to fly off and Dracula to explode. Jimmy has felt that revenge was the right thing to do.


Other These are just a little bit of miscellaneous writings. They are things that I would do if I could, possibly. I haven’t thought of what this section is about. These are just some things I would put together.


To the Past If I had a chance to go to the past and meet a Greek mythology person I would go back and meet Daedalus. I would go back and see the inventions he made and try to learn them and the ones other people had as well.


Ruling Conversation If you want to rule a conversation it can and can’t be rude. If you need information then you need to rule the conversation, but if you’re just talking to someone then it can be very rude sometimes. It also depends on what you are talking about.


Funtertainment When the arrow of boredom flies from the string then, I, the shield of funtertainment deflect it. When you have nothing to do I will fight off the boredom and allow you to do something, anything fun. Unless you yourself are boring then my time is wasted. So don’t waste my time and be fun.


Defying Fate There are many mortals that have defied fate in Greek Mythology. Some ways are foolish some are clever and some are heroic. Achilles fate was made when he was a baby. His mom put him in the river Styx so he could be immortal. He became a great warrior and battled many monsters. But as fate would have it he got shot in the heel, his only weak spot, and died. His fate was foolish yet heroic because he couldn’t die but your heel is very obvious when they wore sandals. Daedalus was a great inventor. He designed the Labyrinth and may other things. His way of defying fate is pretty clever. He would use inventions that he built to get away from Midas, the king that wanted to kill him after he built the Labyrinth. Daedalus built wings and flew away on the run. One day Midas found him in another kingdom. The king led Midas to take a bath. Daedalus wanted not to be killed so he poured boiling water down into the bath and killed Midas. These two men spent a good time defying fate. They were clever, heroic, and foolish. In order to defy fate they did some pretty cool things, but in the end they inevitably came to an end.
