Phoebe’s mom leaves and Phoebe goes on a frenzy trying to cope with the loss of her mother in the family. Then when her mom was gone Sal wrote that Phoebe “... wore a fixed expression: a sealed, thin smile. It must have been difficult for her to maintain that smile, because by the time English class came around, her chin was quivering from the strain.” Phoebe tried to ignore the fact her mother left and isn’t really accepting change but she is learning to accept it but not in a healthy way. Phoebe is trying to find why her mother left.
When Dumas started going to college she went back to using her original but then she gradauted and started looking fo jobs unfortunately no one hired her because of her foreign name so she went back to naming herself Julie. Also, when her childhood friends would meet with her school friends they would start wondering and asking her questions like who's Julie and what does she have to do with you she ignored the questions because she didn't know what to say. She eventually got married and had children so she wasn't put in a position where
“You must love this man very much to protect him so adamantly from his responsibilities. Life will be very difficult for you without his support,” she would tell her, but Rosita remained silent. Senora Lola, finally told her husband of the futility of her investigations “I found out from the neighbors who are friends with Rosita, who all claim that they have never known her to have a boyfriend.” So she concluded that the degenerate who had impregnated her, must be someone from the mountain during one of her visits to her
In Rhina Espaillat’s poem, “Bilingual/Bilingüe”, she has described her cultural situation as rough. Espaillat discusses how her father did not allow for her daughter to speak both languages, English and Spanish, together in the house. The father demanded her to only speak Spanish inside the house and English outside only because he is afraid that the language will tear their relationship apart. However, since Espaillat considered herself stubborn, she didn’t want the separation of languages, she taught herself English. Being raised in a household with a different language than what the dominant language is outside of the household is difficult for some individuals, however, mixing cultural differences and languages into one is wonderful.
I understand, though, that Peter was gone a lot and he wasn 't there to satisfy Nita 's more intimate side. And it really does suck that Nita got too sick to care for the children that the family had to move in with Peter 's
The title “Mother Tongue” is almost brilliantly misleading. My first thought when I read the title was that this story would be about a language that the author spoke before moving to another country and having to learn a new language, but I was incredibly incorrect. This is about English as a language and how easily the author switches from a version that is eloquent to a version that many would considered to be broken. She talks about how many people have judged her mom’s English skills and how she has even been ostracized because of it, but how it inspired the author’s writing style. The title is a fitting tribute to her mom and how she shaped the author’s English skill and the author as a person into who she is today.
Expectedly, Louise has gone through many positive and negative emotions during the time spent while being with her friends, so it is uncommon that she has reported a variety of different emotions which have been caused by her friends. 2.1 “anger” Louise’s referred indirectly to the fact that she found it strange how her friend tried to regain contact after the period of betrayal. Louise seems to be alluding to feelings of anger, as she feels that it was wrong of her friend to regain contact after she had betrayed her. I think she didn’t realise what she’s done (lines 667-668)
My mum had just pulled me out of school in haste only to bring me to my grandparents ' house. For what? I had no idea. But when my grandmother began talking, I got the picture of what was about to take place because it has happened more than I can enumerate. She went ahead to tell me that she received complaints from my mum about my behavior and that I do not listen to the corrections that my parents ask me to make with regards to my character.
He teased, ‘’The last one was creepy because of the man, and how we got lost. As he continued to talk, I continued to worry about it, and then, before I could stop myself I said, ‘’Can we turn around?!’’ Both passengers turned around, surprised by my abruptness. ‘’Sorry, I said, ‘’Last maze has changed my perspective on mazes.’’ ‘’WHAT?!?!
At first Josie hated her father Michael for what he did to her mother, but then ends up opening her heart to him and accepting him into the family. She also didn’t get along with her Nonna that well at the start, but after realizing what her Nonna went through when she was her age, Josie and her Nonna started to see eye to eye. The reason Josie didn’t get along with Katia (Nonna) that well was because of the way she treated Josie’s mother. If Christina (Josie’s mother) or Josie ever did or wanted to do something Katia will always say “people will talk” and that really annoyed both of them. Josie’s relationship with her mother is a love hate relationship, one minute they love each other to bits and the next they’ll be screaming and throwing stuff at each other.
She thought her mom had stole the letter she was waiting for from an agent who could get her into her career; she assumed her mom stole it because she thought her mom would have wanted her daughter to do what “normal” women do. Also, she is not considered a “normal” wife; “normal” for that time meant she was supposed to stay inside and do chores and cook. Instead, she goes around, talks to the men working and hides from her husband. Curley’s wife is lonely because no one talks to her to prevent trouble. George said to Lennie, “well, you keep away from her, ‘cause she’s a rat trap if I’ve ever seen one (Steinbeck 32).”
I wondered’’ how did they know which room we were in?’’ The real reason they came was because they were doing a knock-knock ditch. When they found out that we were in there, they were a little disappointed. Cochilla and Taiya’s mom told them to stop and they didn’t. The hotel had later found out that we were playing knock-knock ditch because people were complaining.
and I extended my hand right in front of their body to give them a handshake. They looked down at me confuse, but smile and gave me a handshake. My mother explains to them afterwards that we didn’t know them very well and to give us time to warm up to them. They stared at me and my sister with great curiosity in every moved we made, so we hide behind our mother feeling shy and uncomfortable. There were so many questions that came to mind, because everything was a mystery with them of who they
