Yet, "Michael was distinctive," she said in another meeting late one night, after a practice with her band in Pasadena, Calif. "I didn't know Michael," she proceeded, aside from "as a fan and as somebody that worked for him." Her sorrow for Prince was a great deal more individual. Inquired as to whether their association was sentimental, Ms. Slope said just: "There was an extremely extraordinary relationship. I profoundly tended to him." In a discussion not much sooner than he passed on, Ms. Slope said, "He let me know that he adored me and that he would dependably be there for
Inspiration Ever since I remember I have loved reading. I would stay up past my curfew reading with my book light, getting yelled out by my mom because I had school the very next day. It all started with my father reading me Dr. Seuss’s “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” and I would pick up on the words because we would read this book every night, and before I knew it I was reading it to him. I was around 5 at this time, and I remember that because my sister was still in her mother's belly and I would read to her from the outside world. When my sister was born we shared the same bedroom, and I would read to her before I went to bed.
Looking back on it now as a high school senior, I'm almost embarrassed to say that was my first piece of writing, but everyone has to start somewhere. The entire year we filled up our purple notebook with stories that flowed straight from our imagination, and I was having the time of my life. Writing came so easily to me, and I could write for hours on end about anything in the entire world. After second grade ended, I didn't stop writing. I continued to compose wild stories about my friends and family going on extreme adventures.

After reading the books, they opened a new pathway to relating to other people for me. Similarly, Malcolm X felt “months passed without even thinking about being imprisoned” due to the fact reading had changed his life (X, 3). The author and I related on an emotional level; therefore we are free with the newfound ability to use our dialog to

Fish Cheeks, by Amy Tan is a story of love, culture, being different, and accepting one's differences.

What he's father did to her mother caused he to have no trust in her own husband. Their daughter also suffered as she “bunches over as she walks… her posture and the concentrated way she gazes down suggest that she's a girl who believes she has a problem” (Yarbrough 642). It is hinted that she might have been thinking about hearing gossip, which might be the gossip of the town about her family. As for what “The Rest of Her Life” has in common with “Caviar” by , there doesn’t seem to be all that much. The only real thing that they have in common is the fact that both stories involve a husband cheating on his wife.
The first reason I hate the Joy Luck Club was the sequencing of the book. I am a very analytical person and the book hopping from one story to another is really confusing to me. For example, in Lena’s section called “Rice Husband”, Lena and her mother are talking about the broken table and Lena says “I knew it would happen.” and her mother replieds with “Then why didn’t you stop it?” and Lena ends by saying in her head “And it’s such a simple question.” (165) . I feel as if Lena’s story, like all the others, gets left unfinished and I wish the author would’ve wrote the specific girls story all at once and not periodically. The book then jumps to Waverly’s story and expects the reader to remember what kind of relationship her and her mother have.
No Pill for Loneliness It was one hot summer day in 1998. I remember the year clearly because it was one year after mother left me for Paris. She was pursuing her career abroad and was only returning briefly to visit me and my grandparents for one week. I moved back to our own home to stay with her. During the day, she would ask me about my new school, do laundry and cook, just like old times; I would answer with simple sentences like “it’s OK” or “I’ve made friends” and help her with the chores.
