House of Dark Shadows Reflection

I read House of Dark Shadows by Robert Liparulo. Throughout the book what has really inspired me is that the family is really the type of family that works together, the siblings get along, and everyone is there to help each other. There were a few confusing parts of the book, I didn't really understand how you got transported to another realm; Was it because of the garments they were wearing or something else? What I liked about the book was that it was very adventurous and detailed, When someone would teleport somewhere the author would write about what the scene looked like and he used very descriptive words. I am still wondering what happened to the mom and where the beast took her! I would definitely recommend this book to others, it has all the components that a reader really looks for, excitement, action, and details. When we finished the our books we had a twitter chat, I really liked this chat because it was nice to see what others were reading and why they chose that book, and really you also got to learn more about them.

Am I a Genius?


No, I am not a genius. Genius' are like Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and Mozart.

 This is because they learn faster and they can think fast and better, they also have to work hard for what they want. I am a smart person but nothing compared to just one of these genius', Mozart started composing his amazing music at five! I can't even compete with a five year old! You become a genius by showing that you are better and smarter than other people, but it doesn't matter if you become one at five or eighty! So anyone can become a genius.

If I were to become a genius in a particular area or skill I would choose socials, like people. I am very good with people so I have a head start. But I know it would take me awhile to get there. For an example some people who are genius' in that area are like, Martin Luther King Jr. or Nelson Mandela. They both are inspirational and know how to touch people. I think you are definitely born with it, but what takes you time is finding that you are good at that particular thing.

If I wanted to become a genius like, Martin Luther King Jr. or Nelson Mandela I will have to start showing my skills. Martin Luther King Jr. started a protest and showed not only America but also the rest of the world that something needed to change. Isaac Newton had some of his physics laws published and since then he was considered a genius, so I need to do something that won't just effect me, the community, the state, the nation, but the world! So I need to work hard and get on it.
