When I met her the first time, I didn’t see much in her, but that was just for a short time. I began to love how nice she was, and how much laughter she could give her friends, and looking back at it, I wouldn’t have known that a random new girl would soon be my best friend. I completely changed after that. A hand needs another to be whole and her hands seemed to have perfectly fit in mine. Unfortunately, things went downhill from there without me even realizing it.
As made apparent by Sammy’s first thought outside, “I look around for my girls, but they’re gone of course” (pg. #7), Sammy initially quit his job in the moment to gain praise from the girls and hopefully to have them swooning over him, but all along he knew the chances of gaining praise from them was slim. Although Sammy was hoping the girls would be waiting for him after he quit his job to stand up for them, he wasn’t really surprised by their absence; He expected it. As Sammy stated “I felt how hard the world was going to be to me hereafter,” (pg.#7) without a job and without any form of reward for his somewhat heroic act, Sammy finally realized the challenges women in society face. Overall, A&P by John Updike is a short story raising awareness for women’s rights as well as proving that you shouldn’t judge someone based on their appearances.
Wolfe portrays the engineer’s dream as the following, “All the brave freedom, the warmth and the affection that he had read into her gesture, vanished in the moment that he saw her…” (Wolfe 2). The engineer thought of this woman to have “brave freedom”, “warmth”, and “affection”, but in reality she had nothing he had expected her to have. After all, Gatsby and the Engineer asked for too much from what they had thought to be their lovers, in actuality they have been disappointed by the truth. On the other hand, Gatsby had once become aware that life might not always go as planned, and let go of all of his high standards of a perfect life. For instance, when the text states, “He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God” (Fitzgerald 110).
This demonstrates innocence because Dill forgot about their marriage almost right after he asked her. Scout and Dill are too young to understand what marriage and love is, so they only pretended because they wanted to feel older. The thing I miss most about childhood is choosing friends based on their personality and who they are as a person. I miss being able to be friends with someone just because we clicked. Now, friendships are formed based on status, popularity and what you can get from that person.
I want to thank God for putting you into Kambili’s life and helping to turn it around. She was in a horrible place when she was younger. She had an abusive father who would not let her have a voice, but you helped her get through that. Even though you left for a few years, you came back and fell in love. Amadi, you brought out the confidence in Kambili.
Mrs. Mallard, instead of being broken by the death of her husband, is happy, because she would now long for the years that would “belong to her absolutely.” (288) She welcomed the future years that she could spend by herself, for herself, no longer having a will overpowering her own. In one story, they are given a gift, but see it as a nuisance. In the other, they have something taken from them, but one sees it as a gift. It is very interesting to see the discrepancies in which people can interpret the things that happen to
Nobody said I had to, It just stemmed from a fear of being teased or excluded just because I was a girl. I was a shy kid from the start, but around the time I started sixth grade I had a fear of sharing what I loved with people In fear of them thinking it was stupid. It took a long time to get rid of this fear. I still have trouble talking about myself and I still get shy, but when I found my own world, filled with my friends, my ideas, my art and my music, I realized I was my own person, and a person who I love. I realized my family can fit in that world too, and they only make me prouder of it.
To be honest, I tell my friends everything, much more than I would tell my family, and they accept me and tell me everything that goes on with them in return. A special love and trust exists between friends that does not occur in families, as people have the opportunity to choose friends and build a relationship, but are forced to associate with the family that they are given at birth. For example, when I was younger, I had a crush on a guy, however, I knew he did not like me back. I could not tell my family, as they would just tease me, so I told my friends, and they helped me become friends with him. Instead of my friends telling him about the crush and embarrassing me and losing my trust, my friends kept it between us, and that strengthened our friendship.
In "Breakeven" it says, "Her best days were some of my worst she finally met a man that 's gonna put her first". This line says that the days she was happy he wasn 't. I think that means that the days she was happy, she was with somebody else. So whenever she was with somebody else he wasn 't because he was still in love with her. In "Sonnet 30" it says, "How comes it then that this her cold so great is not dissolved through my so hot desire".
She was struggling to find a job, and didn’t have the relationships for it. She develops the urge to step up, and now make something of herself. This really shows how she matured from the early stages until this point. Another way the Mom’s Up Program impacted Jolly was it got happy about something for once. “Now Jolly never got excited in liking a job before, I know for a fact” (169).
We got by day by day though by appeasing to their wants for the time being. They grew tired after a while since I put off giving them answer on who I was to marry. This made them start to plan behind my back on ways to get rid of my son which would force me to make a decision. Their planning forced me to make drastic measures and send my son away until it was safe for him. It sickened me to know that not even my own family was safe in my house with these suitors around to threaten them.
Therefore, Kondo’s ideas make people to lose their contacts with their past and make people sad about nostalgia. Land shows how all of her stuff had values to her and how the things taught her something in the past, which help her now to overcome a challenge or just to feel happy about all the things she has done it in the past. After all, most of the stuff people own is supposed to make nostalgic and how it makes people joyful. Also, whenever people go through their stuff, they relive their life and enjoy their past with their loved ones or they can show it to the new generation. Instead of throwing away, they should keep them and feel nostalgia and feel happy about the things they have done in the life.
I didn’t want anyone moving in because I didn’t want him to take my mom away from me. I was a little jealous I thought that she would spend more time with him then with me. But we are all good now and I spend even more time with my mom now then I did before. My second ‘marigold’ is my friend Grace. She has helped me with similar ways as Emma has.
When my parents got divorced I had no idea what to do. I thought they would never be friends again and my life would be a lot harder. But as I got older and years went by my parents became best friends again. That’s really taught me that sometimes bad things happen, but better things can result. If my parents were not meant to be married, they are now happier and amazing parents to me and my siblings being apart.
