Having been homeschooled by her parents for the majority of her life while living abroad in Africa, Cady Heron is innocent and way over her head when she is suddenly introduced to American public school. Her two new friends, Janis Ian and Damian Leigh, give her an overview of the various groups that exist in their school, including the infamous yet popular group of “Plastics” (Waters 00:09:12–00:12:45). Despite the duo’s advice to avoid this group at all costs, Cady finds herself in their favor, and is unexpectedly invited by them to have lunch together on a regular basis by their leader, Regina George. Cady relays this information back to Janis and Ian, who suggest using this as an opportunity to learn more about what Regina and her friends
Janie had never had the opportunity to learn how to shoot a gun and doing so was an activity that she enjoyed and therefore she did it every day out of delight. In Janie’s past relationships she had never really gained new skills that she enjoyed using, Tea Cake gives Janie the chance to try new things and gain new experiences unlike her other husbands where she did only what she was told. Furthermore, when Janie and Tea Cake moved to the Everglades, Tea Cake had gotten a job working at a bean field, which he later was able to get Janie to work as well. Janie had only had one job prior to this, in which she worked in the store in Eatonville where she lived with Joe, and this job was one that she did not enjoy. While Tea Cake was asking Janie if she liked working in the field with him, Janie explained that working in the field is “mo’ nicer that settin’ round dese quarters all day.
Ginny, a girl who had just moved into town and her first day of school began. The moment she saw Smitty, That’s when she right away was interested in him. She met a friend named Hally which told her all about Smitty. As Hally and Ginny were walking to their second period, Hally said “ he never smiles, he never frowns, and he never cries.” I think this quote means that Smitty is maybe scared to show his emotions because people might be asking him what had happened over the past 15 years on why he had been silent and not speaking. Hally said that there is something wrong going on with him.
To begin, the first illustration that shows how proving one's innocence may be costly is the protagonist Scout Finch's first day of school. At school, a schoolmate from Scouts class has not brought a lunch so Miss. Caroline offers him to buy lunch with a quatre with one problem, he has to pay her back. This story takes place after the great depression that left many families poor or in terrible conditions including the Cunninghams. Walters family is very large as well as poor and Walter will never to have money to pay the teacher back.
In 1931 I had to get a nanny to keep up with my strange ways,her name was August Boatwright.she was the closest I ever got to a black person, but she didn 't bother she made me and tica tee peanut butter sandwich in letting me watch Shirley temple all night,but she would never let me slack on school work she would always say “you won 't go anywhere without an education”.soon he became my closest friend I grew up with her.soon august had to leave i was nineteen when she left to go to sylvan.Two years later I grew bored, wanting to see her that when I meet T-Ray.

After i got married to t-ray I soon had
Margot made a very thoughtful and good poem. The poem says, “I think the sun is a flower; that blooms for just one hour:”(Bradbury 2). None of the kids believed that she wrote that poem and that she just copied it from someone in
“Maybe I’ve just forgotten how to see that I’ll never be the person that I thought I’d be.” I included this quote by Amanda Plamer’s song “In My Mind” because it means that the younger version of yourself has a future self but most times if not always, you stray from this plan. Which I did, I went off track, I changed my future when no one told me to, without influence. When I was young, around Nine, I joined a different softball team with new girls to befriend. One of those girls became my best friend at the time, at first she was nice, we would hang out often, but she became more harsh and mean towards everyone, her family, her classmates and even me. From what I heard from her sister she was always harsh.
Anne Sexton never had a good relationship with her parents, especially her dad. Later in her poem, she referenced this, she writes using personification: “my mother 's window a funnel of yellow heat running out” (9-10) proving her point of a simple childhood. By personifying she accessed the sense of touch and feel. She accessed these senses because people can relate and feel like they are there. This helped create an interest for all readers for her to show how relatable and enjoyable her childhood was.
Even while being saved she was quite independent and didn't really have to be saved all the time. Another problem the princesses faces is that the characters around her won’t take her seriously. For example, whenever she spoke to her father he would not listen to a word she said. Which basically shows how the culture treats them for beauty and leaves out that she has a brain at all. A girl shouldn’t wait for the prince to rescue.
What Coraline realizes later is that no one is everything to someone. “To be totally all for someone, in fact, is to cease to exist, to be possessed (which is what the other mother offers) (Rudd).” The other mother is manipulative and controlling, she wants to be everything to Coraline to own her. Like when she says, “They say even the proudest spirit can be broken... with love. (Coraline, 2009)” After being offered to stay she realizes this and decides to stay in her world. Coraline knows that she can’t be everything to her parents, but they are not everything to each other either.
Hi Yasna, It 's Samantha, the associate you interviewed Friday for sales lead. Sorry for the extremely late email, this is the first chance I 've gotten to write you. Today I went by Children 's Place at Eastridge, and spoke with Diana. You had asked me to see what I noticed that was different from Eastridge and Valley Fair, and the first thing that I noticed when I walked in was how much smaller the store is compared to Valley Fair. I also noticed how there is less traffic coming through at Eastridge then there is at Valley fair.
What if people don’t notice Abz? What if they just notice boring Abigail? Friday 14th September 2009 What a week it’s been, finally glad the weekends here I can finally chill out and not be the new girl.

Wednesday 18th September 2009 2 days left and it’s the weekend again, seems to be flying by thing are looking up though I’ve been invited to a party on Saturday quite a few people are going only a few I actually know.
By this time I haven’t been to Seaworld yet. I begged my mom to take me to Seaworld for my birthday. Seaworld was in San Diego which was two hours away. Anyway, my mom surprised me and took me to Seaworld for my birthday. I was the happiest 10-year-old ever.
At my old school I was active in Girl Scouts, but I lost interest in that a year or two after moving. The troop in Luther wasn 't as active as I hoped. Then, when I was thirteen my mom introduced me and my younger sister to Job 's Daughters. Job 's Daughters is sponsored by the Free Masons and includes girls 10-20 years old who believe in God. At first, I was skeptical about whether I would fit in with this group, but I soon grew to love this organization for it 's beauty.
2. How has your family history, culture, or environment influenced who you are? Arriving to the United States, also known as “The Land of Opportunity” by many immigrants, has enlightened me on the very true meaning of that title. Since I come from a family with only one college graduate, being that my mother and many family members barely made it to high school, has left a remarkable impact on my life. I remember listening to stories my grandmother would tell me about how, her and her sisters would walk to school, barefoot, for miles-upon-miles to get an education that they very much needed in 1950s Jamaica.
