Friday Nov. 13 - War and Peace: "The Things They Carried" Primary and Secondary Blogs (3 total)
Prompt: Think about the items that you carry in your bag (backpack, purse, fanny-pack, man-bag, etc.). Choose two items and explain why you have chosen to "hump" these items wherever you go. What is the tangible and intangible element of each item and why? Then think and write about what these items say about you. Finally, compare yourself to one of the characters in the short story. Who do you most resemble and why?

In my bag I tend to always carry a pen and my charger. I always carry a pen because you never know what you would have to write down. I always carry my charger because in case of emergencies I would like to have my phone charged. I guess these items can say that I’m responsible for things. I’m always prepared for something even if something bad wasn’t to happen.

I think that it is very smart for you to carry your charger because without it if anything bad was to happen in a situation where your phone dies then you would need it to communicate. Also, carrying a pen will help in a situation too. so i feel that you have made a very wise choice to carry these items.

I chose to “hump” my wallet and my phone because they are two things that can identify me in any emergency. To me, I would consider my wallet intangible because I never take it out unless I need to. My wallet is my life, because I have everything in there that I would ever need. My phone is tangible because I am always using it. Mainly for music because it calms me down, and it helps me ignore everyone that irritates me.

Somethings I carry is my phone for emergency purposes and I also carry my chap stick because I don’t like chapped lips and I love my chap stick. i carry my phone cause it has everything in it, all my families numbers everything that I need if I ever need anything or if I’m in a bad situation. So that’s why I always carry my phone and chap stick.

I would do the same. I would carry a cellphone because it is very important for me to stay in touch with my parents. I need to know where their at and emergency purposes. If i need to call someone i will have it there with me and not ask someone for theirs. It is very convenient for me. A chap-stick is also what i would carry too because I wouldn't like it if my lips are dry,sore, or even cracked . I would want my lips to be moisterized. I also need it to feel good about myself followed by that applying lipstick.

I chose cellphone too to carry around with me for emergency purposes or emails being sent to me. Back pack well I didn't think about it till now. That would be a great thing to bring with me all the time because I would keep my items i need there. I do bring my bookbag to school and a purse outside of school when going out. I would also compare myself to Jimmy Cross because Jimmy carried Martha's photos around and what I would also do is carry a photo of my boyfriend if I was in war. Since I don't want to be, I would carry something that was given from him to me. To show I care about him.

Carrying your phone all the time and money is a very smart thing to carry because first of all if you always carry money if there is ever a bad situation your in you can use that money if you actually need it. Second having your phone if berry smart too because same reasons if you need to communicate with your family and or friends if ever in a bad situation.

I agree with Nathan Hale, carrying money will also be a number one necessity, in case one day you get stuck somewhere you can call cab or an Uber and it'll hopefully help you out. Also carrying your phone on order to make your phone calls. I suggest that you take a cell phone charger or cable with a portable charger in case the phone ruins out of battery.

The two items I brought with me in my back pack were money and music. As long as I have money and music I'll be happy anywhere. Money is so I can buy clothes and food, the music is for motivation and to keep me focused. Music helps calm me down in times of danger and when I may need help keeping my mind off other things.

Those are two good choices you've made there. Money is always best to have with you in case of any emergency. Music is always best as well. It always tends to relax at the best time. But you should actually choose another item to carry in case of an emergency but either way, thsee are good things.
