Journal Four

Journal Four

         My favorite chapter from the recent reading is Four Skinny Trees. This story stands out for me because I like how Esperanza compares herself as a tree outside of her house. The main theme for this story is being an outcast or not fitting in. The writing that is at its best is when Esperanza said "Four who grew despite concrete. Four who reach and do not forget to reach.". It represents that the trees doesn't give up when there is obstruction in their way, instead, they reach farther.
       A person that influences me when I was little is my neighbor. He would have a nice lawn and garden that I envied. As time goes by, I start to take care of my garden and lawn. I don't know why but I like a nicely trimmed grass lawn and a garden to compliment it.
