It’s interesting how the people change, but the places don’t. I peered at my phone and noticed a missed call from Anita. I presumed that she called for directions, but the voicemail she left informed me that the potential buyers rescheduled for tomorrow. I couldn’t leave tonight and then come back in the morning for two reasons. The first being that I did not trust this mystery woman
I was lucky enough to become close to my great-grandmother, or Momaw, as she liked to be called. She has been part of my life since the day I was born, and now, 25 years later, it kills me to see her in a nursing home. But that’s just it. I haven’t seen her in the nursing home.
Mary Borden, also known as May by her close friends and family, was born in 1886. Mary was the daughter of a Chicago millionaire. Her mother was a very extreme evangelist, which Mary was not very fond of. As Soon as Mary was old enough she got away from the Evangelism religion, by moving to India. There she married and had two daughters.

I just thought what she made was beautiful and creative and wanted to learn how to create a blanket for myself. I was also attracted to the idea of saving money and creating something that I would normally buy versus settling for paying a high price in store. In the Steiner reading on Constructivist theories of learning "If the experience itself is different or new, the child will accommodate or modify his or her existing constructs to reach cognitive stability"(320). I didn 't understand how to sew after Mrs. Fran showed the class what she created.
Her parents got divorced early and she or he stayed along with her father and her new mother. The new mother had a decent influence on Anne. In the book we found that black ladies weren't given enough time off labor to live through maternity. This was often seen in Anne’s observation of her mother when she writes “She didn’t stop working until a week before the baby was born, she was out of work only for 3 weeks” (Moddy, p. 26).
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.
When she had found her daughter she had felt less alone but she never tried to talk to her which caused her to feel loneliness once again “ A day later, those coats were worthless;they no longer kept me warm. I purchased several more at the May Company downtown on Hill Street. Those coats lasted an hour or two before they no longer kept the chill away”(Skyhorse 69). Later on in the book Beatriz had met Aurora for the first time and had asked her for her sweater and even though she still felt cold she knew it was a step she was talking to getting close to her
Leonardo had some important objects, too. One special object was the tablecloth. She got it when she was married and only used it once. She only used it for special occasions, like her twentieth anniversary. No other occasion was special enough, then her husband died right before their twenty-fifth anniversary and the tablecloth has been in a trunk ever since.
I will admit this book confused me at many points because it went so quickly through the years, for example it would mention that she gave birth and then the next three pages that child would be five years old. Also the vocabulary was very old-fashioned and I would have to look up what something meant. Other than those thing it was a fairly easy read. Seeing as this was written in 1928 less than one hundred years after its takes place I think it was fairly accurate to the hardships Abbie, Will, and their children would have had to have gone through. The style of writing I found was very old-fashioned as I mentioned before but I found it interesting how the author started and ended the book she started the book exactly where it ends.
In 2011, I was part of a baseball team that was put together from scratch. We had to quickly prepare for the 13 year old Babe Ruth World Series that we were hosting in Clifton Park that August. At the time, I knew very few kids on the team but what I did know was that the third baseman was first-cousins with the head coach. He also knew and proved that he was the best player on the team. For privacy and consent discrepancies I will call him Mark.
Sofa In the corner of my memory lies a dilapidated, black sofa— my only loyal friend who had looked past my ethnicity and continuously supported me. Although I had always yearned to create a multitude of unbreakable friendships, fate was not on my side. Throughout my childhood, I have been unable to deepen the bond with my peers during after school hours due to my low socioeconomic status.
Azealia Banks got her phone out and recorded a video for the world to see. She could still hear the chickens bocking at her, begging for their lives. The chickens were dead now, of course, but their cries of help still haunted her. She recorded her cleaning the chicken blood that had been drying for four years. She posted her video and closed the closet door.
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls is a remarkable memoir which shows the importance of acceptance and perseverance. The author and her three siblings grew up poor and were forced to try to support themselves, as their parents were unable to provide any form of stability for their kids. I had decided to read the book for many reasons and am glad that I decided to do so as it is an inspiring story. It had allowed me to see things through a different perspective and has changed my view on life. There were many reasons why I chose to read The Glass Castle as my summer reading book.
My eyes fluttering open. The bright light screening through the window pane. It was another usual sunny day in California. It’s always sunny 75 here. The sun is glowing, the blades of grass bursting with colors of envious green, and everything was alive.
