    Boba is gross,

    Almost done with my class,

    It’s too quiet and calm,

    It’s funny how now that there’s like a week

    left of school everyone wants to do work,

    Its funny when Dr ilko gets mad,

    • I like how your poem discusses a very specific, personal place. It’s interesting how even chores (cleaning up after the dogs, putting away their toys) are described fondly. The descriptions help me imagine the scene in my mind, and the image of the birds makes me smile!

      I really liked an enjoyed that you decided to write on Chicano pride. As you stated in your post above, “I believe people shouldn’t be judged or treated differently because of their skin color. You shouldn’t feel embarrassed because of where you come from. Your culture shouldn’t be hidden.” And it’s very true. It is sad to see how some people, and since we are talking about the Hispanic culture, are ashamed of being part of a certain culture. I know that I proudly am part of the Hispanic culture. Como dices, el respeto y la dignidad es una parte muy grande en nuestra cultura. Teniendo respeto por tus mayores y otras personas que no conoces es muy importante.
      Overall, I really enjoyed reading this. It make me happy to see that there are students out there, trying to show the world that being part of a certain culture shouldn’t make you be ashamed. Maybe perhaps in the future you could write about perhaps what are the effects of Hispanic culture in the United States and see if there are positive or negative effects on the American culture.
