Mariella is a 30 year old young woman. She’s a law student at Stanford University and is making ends meet the best she can while at the same time being a mother to her 12 year old son, David. She was one of those people who fell in love with…


In book 22, the revenge has started finally!!! Literally everyone and anyone is getting merked. No one is being spared. It reminds me of the movie 300. Just straight slaughter. But honorable mention though: the first person he kills is Antinous, and I wasn’t mad at that not one bit…


On 11/17/20 I actually enjoyed our class discussion. Not that I don’t enjoy any of the other class discussions, but this one was more memorable I guess. I liked how much more freeing the discussion was because we took a mini survey about our favorite book between the Iliad and…


I think I actually enjoyed this week’s reading. I learned a lot about people and how everything is susceptible to change. I know all that is kind of lame but I think Odysseus, Telemachus, and even Eumaeus all show elements of change and growth.

In book 14, with the help…


In book 10, Odysseus and his men keep on traveling, and they land at Aeolus’ home, where they stayed for a long time. Aeolus, who we know as the master of the winds, gives Odysseus a pouch with all of the winds that would have driven their ship off course…

In book 2, Telemachus displays even more bravery and strength than he did in book 1 and with the help of the gods, more specifically Athena, he gets his message across to the suitors in his home. So basically, he tells them that they need to get out of his…


Yayy! The Odyssey, finally! I feel like I wanted forever to read this book. I think between this one and The Iliad, I like this one better. Nevertheless, I did not expect/ remember this first chapter to be like this lol. So apparently Odysseus is the only one left from…


So this week wasn’t the best week for me because I had a lot of stuff going on at home so I wasn’t able to study how I normally do. Nevertheless, I still did and here’s this week’s journal. I really enjoyed our discussion on 9/29/20 mainly because I felt…


On Thursday 9/17/20 we took a test, went over it and then we had a discussion.

In book 14, a lot is happening. In this chapter, Agamemnon keeps wanting to go back home because he thinks that the Trojans are going to win the battle. At this point, I’m starting…
