I had to walk four miles to get to school. I missed many days to work in the cotton fields, but that was the only way for me to find my love for reading and math. My father? Well, he left us when I was eight or nine (I forget), so that he could go find better opportunities. It was tough on my mother

“…so when I couldn’t stand it no longer, I lit out. I got into my old rags, and my sugar-hogshead again, and was free and satisfied….” (page 9). This quote expresses how badly Huck didn’t want to have a parent figure in his life and wanted to set off by himself until Tom Sawyer stopped him and convinced him to go back to Widow Douglas. Widow Douglas and Miss Watson just weren’t a good fit for Huck. They both did all the right things by making him go to school and clean up himself, but that wasn’t what Huck was looking for.
'I was a solitary child, born the middle of three, who lived in the world of books and my own imagination’. Lowry studied law at Packer Collegiate in Brooklyn heights New York, where she finished her high school and after that she got her degree at the University of Southern Maine in 1972. At some point of her life Lowry became a part time dentist when she did not have anything to do. Her childhood was happy; though her father was kept away for year but stills she grew up largely without him not being there. Due to her father being a career army officer, Lowry moved a lot during her childhood.
Thirdly, in Everything I Never Told You, the Lee kids, and particularly Lydia, were not as popular as the other kids, they were not invited to go out on the weekends, they never to birthday parties, and they were not the recipients of after school phone calls to chat about the drama that happened at school that day. During lunch, “Lydia sits silent while others chatter,” because they are not really her friends (Ng, 15). Hurt by the fact that no one will be friends with her due to the fact that she is a different race, Lydia “sits for hours on the window seat on the landing” pretending she is on the phone with friends when, in reality, she is “rattling off assignments” to herself with no one on the other end of the call (Ng, 15-16). The malefactors of these discriminatory and xenophobic acts, whether they were
People could only imagine knowing Miss Soar on a personal level, yet here I was about to spend a full two weeks by her side in a classroom. Although I knew of Miss Soar, we never had a conversation, but that would soon change. Sitting at my study writing a shopping list my mother had asked for when I heard the doorbell ring followed by a brief conversation. It was Miss Soar! At dinner later that night my mother broke the new, “Honey, Miss Soar has requested your help at her camp this summer.” she said.

I was in 4rd grade and I have never been to Mexico before. My mother decided to take me there for about two weeks to visit my family there and my grandparents, but during that time I was still attending school so the teacher just gave me two weeks of school work to make up when I get back. I got home and my mother was already packing up, so I went to pack my stuff and picked out my favorite clothes to wear. Once I was done, I went to sleep, mother awakened me up at 3am to get ready to leave to the airport. After a very long wait in lines at the airport, we were finally boarded on the plane.
It was strange for me because, I came from a private school that had only thirteen kids per class room, so all around there were only about one hundred thirty kids that attended that private school this was going to be a huge change for. As I was wondering around the campus I felt so lost, felt like a stray dog trying to find its way other people were laughing and talking to one another maybe it because most of them came from the same middle school .It was hard for me to adjust all my friends were back home in New Mexico and not even my parents were with me on this eventful day they had to stay behind to pack out stuff into boxes .I had to come to California sooner because school started much early than back home. Fourtunely I had two uncles who lives in Sacramento, so they made the moving transaction a little smother.
When school ended and Summer School was going to start I had to retake an English course. At McDonalds I usually had to work either the day or night shifts. Whenever I would work day shifts I would have to come in at 10 to 5 and on night shifts I would come in at 5 and work past midnight. My family and I went to chamberlain to take out our jet ski to go tubing. When we went tubing we usually went south of cedar shore about four or five miles.
She only had 7th and 8th grade in her middle school so it was a lot smaller that it is now. “We only had an orchestra, crafts class, and a home EC class.” “We would have a school dance almost every month. All the girls would get to the bathroom after 7th period and spray our hair and put on makeup.” Then after dances, they would get a quarter and call their parents on the wall phone. Some people that influenced Janelle’s life is her Mom, “she was always so kind and really made me who I am today.” Michael Jackson, “he was what we all listened to in my highschool years.” My friends, “they really shaped my attitude and who I am today.” Her first job was at her dad’s optometry office. “ I worked there over the summer and made ok money for the times I would go out with my friends.” A few of her other jobs were in college.
