If I won the lottery, first I would help pay off any debts, taxes, etc. Then I would save some money for college. If I still had money left at that point, I would buy 2 or 3 nice vacation houses in supreme locations and rent them out when I'm not using them, in order to keep my cash flow. Some issues or dangers wealth could bring is getting caught up in the money, as in becoming stingy and conceited. In order to avert those problems i would try to stay away of my actions and try being humble.

For my book report I was recommended a book called Out of my mind by Sharon M. Draper. I liked the title just to begin with. The book is about a girl (Melody) who was born with cerebral palsy. The book is told from Melody's point of view, so I think that makes it a 1st person pov book. So, so far the book is really cool because Melody has a photographic memory and can like remember everything. But at the same time it's actually kinda sad because she is very intelligent, but the doctors think she is "dumb", but she is unable to communicate to them that she understands them. Melody is basically imprisoned in her head. So the title definitely.

Since the book is told from Bucks pov this influences the readers feelings toward Buck because it show/details more of his feeling/thoughts thus making the readers able to relate and feel more toward him. Rather than the other characters, where it merely gives you what Buck can see what they might be feeling by their actions. The story would be different if told by the trainers' point of view in the sense that the reader wouldn't know what Buck was feeling or thinking. Also it would change your perspective on both the trainer and Buck. For example, if told by the trainers pov then Buck might seem like a crazy dog, and the trainer just a guy trying not to get bit and turn Buck into a sled dog.

Buck needs to be "cured" because he needs to gain discipline and be less aggressive. I disagree with the man on pg. 7 in that Buck needs to be taught to be less aggressive because Buck was only being that way because he felt he was in danger. The reason he felt that way was cause of how he was being treated. It's like the golden rule, "Treat others as you would to be treated." Since Buck was being treated roughly he was going to be rough back. Although the man in the red sweater did in a way "cure" him, he didn't really. Because all that taught Buck was not to mess with a person who has a club.

I didn't get the chance to lie about my lie, no lying. But I probably would just have felt pretty much the same... : / I don't think is "okay" to lie though. The only time i think you should really lie is if you are protecting someone or yourself from both physical or emotional harm.

I agree with Charlie. People act differently around different people. The surface a of a person could be they seem really shy, but really they're completely outgoing. Another example sort of related to that could be just generically how people act around different people. Like you might act differently around your parents then you would around your friends, etc.
