However, my friends thought I was doing too much and started calling me names like; nerd, boring, no fun life girl etc. Peers and some of my family thought I had nothing else to do with my life than to study.

Liesel was an illiterate due her past and thus once she started going to school she was “humiliatingly,… cast down with the younger kids” (pg. 39, Zusak). Liesel dreaded reading tests and if not for Hans’ help in their midnight classroom sessions, Liesel would have never got over her “excruciating fear” (pg. 75, Zusak) of having to read out loud. As the novel progresses so does Liesel’s adoration for reading books.

Ruth was starting to feel that Art wasn’t appreciating her enough while Art tells Ruth that she never accepts help offers from anyone and makes her life harder than it is. When she has countless amounts of errands to run, she never asks for anyone’s help. She always depends on herself, spending more time for work than her love life. She wondered whether Art still loved her or not, but she did not this this situation seriously, as “she wasn’t the type of to get into conflict over things that were ultimately not that important” (Tan 49). She never discussed her struggles to maintain everything by herself to Art.

As soon as I found out, I asked her if she wanted me to try and help her out.
Conclusion- Janie is lonely but in a way she would rather be alone than get into another relationship, she still misses Tea Cake all the time, especially after she finishes telling her story. I believe that the theme for this section of the book is “Never take anything for granted”. I believe this because Janie finally realizes that she does love Tea Cake and basically starts to live life in the moment with Tea Cake. She starts to do things she’s never done before and with that comes the fact
Crigler after class, and she explained to them that tomorrow, Kendall and Ivy would have to take a test on whatshe had taught. Kendall and Ivy both thought she wasn’t being impartial because they were the only students who had to take the test. Well, as Kendall began the long trek back to her locker, all the way on the other side of the school, she thought about the test. She realizes that she was not paying any attention in class.

The challenges that I faced last semester within this classroom was mainly home reading and writing, such as reading How to Kill A Mockingbird. This was a challenge for me to read over the break and weekends because frankly I’m not very fond of reading fictional things and things that have really no general interest towards myself. I just didn’t want to do the reading, which is a huge factor on my part, it’s not the wisest decision I’m aware of that, to not do assignments because I find them useless to me, but it’s hurting my grade which is having the biggest impact on me.
When I did ask for help my teacher told me that I was “stupid” in front of the whole class. I was embarrassed and felt like that shy little girl again who was afraid of the world and to talk to people. These teachers made me feel like I was worthless and that I wouldn’t go anywhere in life. That’s when I knew that I had to leave, if I didn’t I knew I would always seen in my brother’s shadow and not in my own light. Since I was little I have always been shy and never really spoke up or defended myself, but from that year in school I learned that it’s okay to defend yourself and I learned to speak up.
It didn’t come out from the tree. I didn’t get that money tree that was planted in my yard because it was already dead.” During high school, Michelle didn’t pay very good attention during school. She states that it was the biggest mistake that everyone makes. “There’s a reason for you to go to school, not only for you to learn everything, but it gives you life lessons.” She calmly states. “ Everything you go through might be the happiest time, the baddest time, the homework that you forgot to do or didn’t do because you wanted to do something else,” she chuckled.
