Chapter Two: CJ An educational trip to the Globe Theater over spring break. I chuckled just at the thought of the whole ordeal, this man cannot be serious.

In the poem, Steve feels anxiety about starting school again, I relate to this in a big way! I feel anxiety about going to school everyday!

Max’s teacher’s begin to see that potential too “...she finally gave up on trying to trying to make me talk in class, and instead she waits until study hall, where she asks me the same questions alone and I tell her the answers”(81). A third symbol in this is the empty book Freak gives Max towards the end of the book. Freak is giving Max a new start, telling him “I want you to fill it up with our adventures”(150). The empty book is a chance to restart and put everything about his parent behind him. But of course that is difficult for Max because he thinks he can’t write.
There was not quite enough descriptive adjectives used to describe the characters in the novel and often left the reader feeling left out or confused. In this quote “Before they got into their parents’ cars, Sam and Coop asked ben if he wanted them to come over once they got out of their gear.”(p 103) there is little to no emotion given from the characters Sam and Coop even though they just lost their important football game it leaves the reader feeling like they didn’t care instead of being disappointed which they were a few paragraphs before. The main protagonist Ben is described as being 11 years old short and respectful but the cognitive process of the child is matched to one of an adult. In the Main conflict Ben helps Shawn become a better quarterback despite wanting to be the starting quarterback and this is often quite unrealistic because at that age most kids are more worried and focused on themselves and would rarely go the extra mile for others while at the same time giving himself a disadvantage. Overall the character development and viewpoints were carefully thought out and without the minor details being picked out above the characters were portrayed

In the article, “Achievement of Desire” by Richard Rodriguez, starts to discuss the conflict of scholarship boy between school life and his home life. When he starts to make progress in his education, he was becoming discouraged and embarrassed of his parents lack of education. Rodriguez admits his success is due to never forgetting his life before he became a scholarship boy, yet the new change that came from getting an education. After reading this article, I would have to agree with certain parts Rodriguez has to say, yet disagree after realizing individuals who take the values of academic culture will start to experience alienation from native communities. Richard Rodriguez describes the difficulties between balancing life in the academic world and life of a working class family.

Holden shows that toward the end of the book when he gets angry with Phoebe for skipping out on school. He would rather her not be with him and go to the play that she desired to go to, rather let her go with him and miss the play. This proves that Holden would rather have a student go to school rather than be out in the

Loophole to Acceptance As a college student, there are several moments where I wanted my mind to do nothing, and be un-occupied from all the thoughts in my head so I can be in a relaxed state of mind. Imagine my surprise as my professor assigns the class to do nothing for ten minutes and write about it; my first thought was "how does she expect us to produce something without doing anything? This is pointless." Although I did not understand the reason of this experiment in the beginning, it allowed me to see my comfort bubble as I questioned why I did the things I did. I believe this experiment started when my professor planted this "un-occupied, un-employed" thought in my head.
