Baller County had high expectations for the year so the team started off the practices with a strong swagger and practice had started becoming part of a usual routine for all the young athletes. The day February 25, a day that young John Goodman will never forget. The overcast weather conditions had soaked everything; therefore, the team had spent practice in the batting cages. Afterwards, the coach dismissed the team to go home since weather conditions seemed to be worsening. Goodman and a few others had decided that they would go to the mall and pick up some well needed snacks at the mall.
Esperanza means when she says, "I have decided not to grow up tame like the others who lay their necks on the threshold waiting for the ball and chain” that she will not be similar to her grandmother. She does not need to wait for a husband to marry, she will manage by herself and fight for herself. Furthermore, Esperanza does not want to be like so many girls her age, she wants to be wild and not to imprisoned by her husband. In addition, she has seen lives like Rafaela’s and her grandmother’s and does not want to fall in that trap. She does not want the life that she has seen her whole life and wants to carry herself being that she has seen others’ circumstances.

The reason I did get things that I wanted is not for any good reason, but because I am the middle child. Being the middle child is also hard because you never get any attention, and even when I do get attention, I am getting it for all the wrong reasons. I am not getting all of the attention because I am the favorite like my sisters are. I may get attention from my mom, but only because she feels bad because she thinks I might have the “middle child syndrome.” Although events like these happen everyday of my life it does not affect my life as much as some would think. I have learned to deal with the fact that I will never be the favorite, I will never get the same amount of attention as my two other sisters, and I will never just be treated the way I want like my younger sister.

From the start, I did not feel like I “fit in”. I did not want to be around anyone. As my depression grew, my grades faltered, and I had very little interest in anything. After a series of academic failures and a period of loneliness throughout the remainder of my time in middle school, I finally told myself that this was my life and I had to take charge of it and start looking for the best things in my day to day activities. I began to think about my future and how my choices were going to shape my life as an adult.
Four years ago, I remember being told, “We both know you can do it, you are just not putting in enough effort.” In the middle of my eighth grade year, the dreams of going to college and having a better life for myself was not important at that moment. College didn’t matter to me as I was with the wrong type of friends who always influenced my behavior whether I knew it or not. While I knew that I was capable of being on the high honor roll, it didn’t seem to matter to a thirteen year old. Knowing that college was still years away, I didn’t want to focus on it so early in my life. My grades and behavior were the main reasons I was on the border of not graduating.
I 've always been told that life will knock you down, but it 's getting back up that shows your true character. My whole life has been a series of ups and downs. As a child I always struggled in school. I never got horrible grades, but I certainly wasn 't the best student. After trying for many years to get better grades with little to no success, I gave up on trying and just accepted whatever grade I ended up with.
