The narrator said, “During the first fortnight, Gregor’s parents could not bring themselves to enter his room…” He has been disconnected from his family to the point where they’re emotionally unstable and unable to treat him as he deserves with affection and comfort to help him cope with his metamorphosis. The narrator shows this disconnection before the mutation,”Gregor later earned so much money that he was in a position to cover the expenses for the entire family…” He later described the exchange not “particularly warm”. Gregor feels alienated by his parents because of the lack of affection for him providing for them. This change has long since happened but is in full affect more than ever since the transmutation. Overall Gregor has changed both physically and emotionally.
During the Great Depression, my family and I went through difficult times for about ten years. I was unemployed and couldn’t pay for our home. In result, we became homeless and we don’t know where to go. Though some families allowed us to move in together under one roof, sometimes allowing strangers in homes can bring some difficulty and stress so I declined. So, because of this we are forced to live in squatter settlements called Hoovervilles (shacks that housed millions of unemployed).
Both of my parents grew up in Mexico, and both were very poor from their childhood. My mother, Guillermina Diaz, was born and raised in Tepatitlan, Mexico, whom was the 2nd child out of the 6 in total, with 3 sisters and 2 brothers. They were so poor that at the age of 11, she had to work with her mother and sisters, thus unable to go and finish high school. However, my father, Guillermo Diaz, born and raised in Ejupla, Mexico, had to worst of it. As for him, he was literally homeless, and practically had to be the man in his family of 10, 5 sisters and 5 brothers.
He was offered this job multiple times, but he could not bear the thought of leaving his family in a state across the country. However, his current place of employment at the time was not successful, for it is half of the reason that he was in debt. He was a carpenter at a small company that would barely get a new project every other month. I still remember the day that I found out that he was considering moving to
My parent's divorce was a great impact on my life and how I was raised. They split up when I was about 10 years old, me and my brother became split up because each of us wanted to live with the opposite parent. My life felt like it had been flipped upside down, and even to this day it continues to feel that way. Living with my mom rather than my dad has showed me many things. Rather than growing up and getting everything handed to me, I had to work and earn things for myself.
At one point, we lived in an apartment that soon became termite-ridden and we became homeless for awhile, landing upon a ‘home’ on a boulevard in Martinez, California. For years, I was in and out of school due to my mother’s whims and uncleanliness I couldn’t prevent. I was trapped in a daze; my mother would disappear and I kept
Life is too short.” When he returned home, the couple tried to continue their marriage and work things out. Lorrie remembers “So much had happened—there was so much that my dad missed out on—and it took a while to let him back into our lives and accept his authority.” Within a year, the couple divorced. Loretta took 140,000 of her husbands pay during the time he was a POW. She took his two younger kids, his house, his car, and 40% of his future pension. She had to pay back only $1500 of his money, that she spent on trips with other men.
Now most people would be nervous of moving to a new school, but all we had to do was move through new hallways since our middle and high school are connected. Freshman year was probably the hardest year I've had looking back at it now and shaped me to be who I am today. Back in 2013 my grandpa had passed away from a rare form of lung cancer and my Mina (grandma) was suffering on and off from it, having no one to take care of her my mom would stay at her house 5 to 6 days out of the week and she would go there right after work. I would hardly see my mom except in the mornings before school and by than she would be sleeping after driving home from Danbury at 5am. My dad was hardly around from work and just not wanting to be home.
Throughout my seventeen years of life, the most difficult thing that I have coped with mentally and emotionally is my parent's divorce. Everyday I think to myself “how can my life go from perfect to a disaster in such a short amount of time”. In my imagination we had the perfect family. My dad is a police officer, my mom was a teacher, we lived in a big house with a pool, and two dogs. What more could my siblings and I ask for?
My 6th grade year was also one of my most traumatic years leading up to high school. This was the year my grandparents whom I basically lived with moved out of state. My mom was working constantly because she had just gotten her first medical job and my step-dad was in prison. I was 11 maybe 12 and I had to grow up pretty fast in my neighborhood. For the first time I would get out of a new school without having my grandma there

My older brother Larry has been in and out of jail since he was 17 years old for hanging out with the wrong crowd. Soon after my brother’s first arrest, my mother lost strength in both her knees and was unable to stand and walk for long periods of time, which made it impossible to work. She developed blood clots in her legs. I was home for spring break during my first year of college when a blood clot in my mother’s leg traveled to her heart and killed her. My father’s health also worsened during this time.

But then I do not have any experience of riding ox, that cause our wagon go wrong trail. The sky was dark like almost rain, I was panic. Everyone was in poor health because digest least food.
