Reflection

The historical time period was very important, because there were moments of great impact to our present like for example the law of gravity that was published by Isaac Newton on 1687 or the start of the war against the colonies of North America. The selections we read were very interesting. The onion talk was alot of fun for me because it let me original and more creative, I felt free writing it. And obviously the movie I've watched like 20 times and I stil laugh, Tropic Thunder.
