I think I am getting in love with this book. But, especially with this chapter 14, because I loved the way how Steinbeck opened his hearth and screamed the cruel reality that the people in the Dust Bowl lived. I just liked the way how he said that the main cause of this was because many people thought as “ I “ specially the bank. WOW!

I am glad we got to get bonus points for starting to type part of our second essay. I was having trouble starting to right it but now after today I have a clear idea on what I am going to include in my paper. I already had my topic picked out but I was having trouble figuring out how to start it.

@Anna... I agree except for me this time, it was more difficult. I decided to write a whole new paper so I turned in my old Rough Draft but during class... I was trying to generate a new idea lol... it was pretty tough but it was helpful nonetheless.

Love this idea of Bonus points. Although I only got like 800 words typed but there were extra points and also an extra start on writing our esay number two.

I liked the free writing, and of course the bonus points! I've had so many different ideas bouncing around in my head, that it was good to get one of them on paper and see how it sounded.

Awesome bonus point activity. Glad that I was able to get to 1000 words, unfortunately I didn't have my topic figured out yet so I was forced to come up with something which finally got me thinking. So this was a helpful push in the right direction.

The bonus points was really nice to get for writing our second essay. I already started my paper before today so i got to get the bonus points very easy.
