Questions That Still Remain Katczinsky is a helpful character, for he’s helped them in many different ways. However, he is a very mysterious character, and that is why I still have several questions that remain. We know that he’s been fighting in the war for some time, and I wonder... Continue reading

I really liked this since I’m going through the same thing, and that’s of course, secondary schools. Tomorrow, we’ll know what schools have accepted us, and you made a really great point. It’s not the choice you make that matters the most, but what you make out of it. That right there was really powerful, and it’s about to make the best out of life. That’s really important and powerful, so thank you Evan. (Also good luck tomorrow)

My favorite part of the piece was when you compared your thoughts, and after you said that I was really able to understand what you were trying to say. How your thoughts are always conflicting against you, forcing you to make a choice that your are not sure about. This is different compared to everyone else’s essays. You talk about indecisiveness and that’s something that can be very hard, and you taught me your experience with this mental dilemma.

I really really liked the ending, and it was cool how you said choices are how we are life, and choices are make you, you. That conclusion was really well thought out; on the other hand, you did have many run on sentences and you missed many places were you had to put commas. However, I really did like it since your message was clear and powerful.

Very true, I can really relate with you when you said you didn’t want to do something, but in the end you were glad you did. It’s the same for me. When my parents ask me if I wanna go to someone’s house I usually say no, but when I do go—even when I don’t want to—I have a really good time. In all, I like the lesson you teach us, that sometimes a choice you don’t want to make can still be a good mistake. Like that breakfast burger.

I STRONGLY disagree with you when you said rap, and I think you are super wrong. However, we have our opinions. Music is singing over a beat or rhythm, that what it is. Music isn’t anything too complicated, and it teaches a story. music is more than—especially rap—singing over a beat or rhythm. Other than that I do like how you said that your perception of music changes, and maybe you’ll get into rap. If you do, listen to MFDOOM , FRANK OCEAN, 2pac and there’s many others but try it.

School can be stressful, but music is something that helps you deal with that stress. You wrote that perfectly. Music can help you relax or be productive, and it’s the same thing with me. Music does so much for everyone no matter how hard the situation is.

As I know sports are big part of your like, but you can’t win every game. However, music has allowed you to bounce back from defeat. For me, it’s the same after a loss I let my music push out all the negative thoughts in my head.

I really liked this, I really did. It’s true the songs you remember the best are the ones that make you feel the most emotion. The apology that you used was soooooo good. I really did like it. Without music who would we be and what would we do?

Like Jack M, you said how music helps pumps you up. Like me, you have different playlists for different times, and that really shows how can play such a big part in ones life.

I really liked this. The joy that music brings to you and especially these people who have little, but they do have music to bring joy to their lives. Music really brings joy to so many people no matter their background, and your quote perfectly taught us that.
