Back in time

I could see her dirty blond hair, hazel eyes, wrinkles around her eyes and on her hands, pale skin, small nose, and normal sized ears. Her hands looked rough like she’s worked her hardest her whole life, that's because she has. My grandma and I were sitting at the kitchen table, when I asked my grandma, “Hey grandma can I interview you for my English class?” I saw her face start to grin in joy as she replied with, “Of course,” “How about Wednesday?” she said with the biggest smile on her face.
Wednesday afternoon my grandma and I were sitting on the couch, “Alright grandma let's get started” I said. My first question was what is your full name and what were the nicknames you had as a kid? “My full name is Gloria Anduaga Sanchez but they called me Glorita.” “I don't know why,” she told me, “I guess it sounded better, I was never really sure. They also called me by my last name, Anduaga.“ She stayed quiet for a moment. “Matter a fact now that I remember we all called each other by our last name.” “When my mom called me by my full name, that's when I knew I had to hide” she said with laugh.
What was your first job? Did you like it? Why or why not?
“My first job was at a Mexican restaurant, I forgot the name of the place.” Even though they paid her minimum wage that was enough money for a 15 year old. She described it as a small place with great food that was busy all the time where she had to work alone. “I learned a lot from it though, like how to multi task and how to work hard and not be lazy” she told me.

My following question is what was the most shocking experience you've had throughout you life? “After my mother passed away” she said, “All of my and family were gathered together and were praying. We were praying A Rosario, which is prayer we do after someone has passed away. We were all praying in the living room when all of a sudden my niece yells out “My grandma! She whispered in my ear!” “Everyone was in shock wondering what just happened as was I” she continued. She then told me that later that day she was walking down the street when she heard someone calling her name. “Gloria,” said the voice “I heard the voice but it didn't sound normal it was soft as if it was a whisper.” said my grandma. She also wanted me to realize that my mother's name is Gloria before she went on with her story. “Your mom came in wondering why I had called her.” “It wasn't me I thought you called me” she told my mom. They were both puzzled, and left speechless.. After my mom left my grandma heard the voice again only this time she recognized the voice, “Mama” my grandma said waiting for an answer. “I wasn't scared just shocked” my grandma clarified. I saw my grandma's eyes start to water, I saw a tear rolling down her face. “From that day and for the rest of my life I knew that my mom would forever be with me, right in here.” she pointed at my heart. She gave me a big hug and told me that she loved me. “Let's continue this tomorrow grandma” I said.

the black plague swept over Asia and Europe. it reached Europe in the 1340's killing an estimated 25 million people. The plague was mostly carried by rats but it wasn't the rat who carried  it, it was their fleas who carried the plague. The cause of the plague wasnt discovered until the most recent outbreak in china from 1855-1959. Doctors realized that plague victims had the same symptoms as rats, and most victims had flea bites. The plague still exits today, but its no as deadly because now we have antibiotics.

Basics of Pickle Ball

Pickleball is similar to tennis and ping pong, its played with a plastic racket and ball with holes. Pickle ball is played badminton-sized court: 20' x 44'. You  have to serve the ball diagonally starting with the right hand serve on the court. If the ball is not diagonally that is a mistake in pickle ball thats a fault, you have 2 faults before the other team gets a point. Players on each side must let the ball bounce once before volleys are allowed, and theres a 7 feet no  volley zone to prevent spiking. One game is to 11 point and you have to win by 2

Light

The speed light is approximately 670,616,629 MPH or 186,282 miles per second. Nothing is faster than the speed of light, if you could travel at the speed of light you could go 7.5 times around the world in a second. Thanks to Einstein and others we understand light speed to be a theoretical limit. Some scientists believed that the speed of light was instantaneous and some disagreed. The distance light travels in the course of a year is called a light-year. Light of the moon travels to our eye in about one second thus making it a light second. A light year is the time light takes to get one place to the other.

Towns!

Towns were built around walls, successful towns were located on major raods or waterways. Around the 1300 majority of people lived on the country side. How did Black Death start?

Rankings, Knights and Black Plague

Around the 1300 there was a "Pyramid" ranking system the king being at the top, it reminds me of the food chain. I find it funny how if a night had to fight 40 days, after the 40 days were up he would return home even if the his king is still attacking or being attacked. I wonder how the black plague stopped?

Dally's death was sadder because dally basically killed himself. Johnny was in really bad condition and was gonna be paralysed. After johnny died dally was heart broken because the only he loved was johnny. Dally didn't have anything left so he robbed a store with an unloaded gun and pointed it at the cops when they were chasing him. Dally wanted to get shot because he didn't have anything to live for.
