Once upon a time there was a brother called Sam and a sister called Mary. These siblings had to walk to their grandmother’s house. This starts when their parents told them to go up to their grandmother’s house. The mom and dad told them to take a package up to her because it was her birthday. The parents also told them to leave early in the morning.
A couple days before Christmas. A young woman named Amanda Bailey was wondering what will she buy her mother for Christmas. She had ideas but thought her mother probably wont like it. Amanda was searching in all the stores for a present to buy for her. Amanda went home to go to sleep waiting for tomorrow.
I agreed so we decided to go home. Beikwaw called me to ask if I was seeing it and I told him we were leaving the park. He wondered why so I told him we decided to leave. We went home the same way, and when we got home it was about 8:30-9:00. My mom asked how it was and we said that it was a long story, but it was pretty.
The stalking goes on every single day and she seemed powerless to control the urge not to. “It is compulsive, relentless, draining … and deeply dubious,” she admitted. The irony of this mother’s “24/7 stalking” is that it has no impact on making her miss Lucy “any less.” According to Stalker Mom, Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer, an expert on parenting and child development, was “horrified, but not surprised” to learn about her online stalking habit. Brewer said that Stalker Mom’s behavior and intention were similar to those of parents from days of yore who would personally check on their kids during their playtime at school just to see their playmates and watch them do thing alone or with others. In her case, Hartley-Brewer -- mother to a 30-year-old daughter -- uses Facebook and WhatsApp to determine her activities and location.
This is not her first trip oversees, as a ten-year-old, she travelled to Europe with her family as tourists and dashed all over Europe stopping by different cities just long enough to take photos. Going to Ireland was never a plan, it was her intuition and subconscious that pushed her to take an opportunity to reinvent herself. In Ireland, she settles into a bohemian lifestyle of waitressing, bartending, drinking and dancing in Galway. She becomes roommates with Carly who evidently becomes her “wise life guide” and who is addicted to the rush of being a foreigner. After four months in Ireland, she goes back home, still confused, to finish her final year of college.
Ever since the age of three, she had been a problem solver. She remembers manipulating the adults, aka parents, and diverting their attention to her hurt leg as she faked a fall from the shove of her father. Scene 1, take 1 was a success and their excessive arguing came to an end with the tears of a broken little girl. She constantly had to be strong and always on guard as a child. Her mother sent her to the first day of elementary school without registering her as a student.
October 4, 2007. I was in school, just like every other day and the office gets a call from my mom saying that I need to leave. At the time, I was confused because my mom would never just pull me out of school unless it was an emergency. I got to the car and she told me that we are going to the hospital, grandma is not doing good. Hearing those words come out of her mouth was heart-wrenching.
My hair was a wild beast that had to be put up to be tamed or else it would go crazy and scare the entire neighborhood. Mom worked two jobs so she wasn’t always able to fix my hair all the time, which it was better for me because when she tried it didn’t turn out so good. I gathered my stuff and placed them in the back of the trunk, I turned around and noticed my mom, standing there with a smile like always but I could sense her sadness a mile away. For the last 11 yrs she was all we knew, cared and loved. We were leaving her today and deep down, it was killing her.
Recess started off pretty boring we just ran out there and a bunch of ignorant second graders started yelling at us for no reason. This one second grader started to get on my nerves so I told him to shut up and he told me to make so I went up to him and kicked him in the shin. He ran up and then told on me so I went hiding in the tubes on the playground. It took them a while to find me since I was in such a good hiding spot. Then when they found me I was I knew I was gonna be in big trouble.
She could be free of the pain and continue her development as a woman through courage. Tea Cake may have been her final stage in the novel, but he sure wouldn’t be her last. He taught her what love and devotion was. And even though Janie had to be hurt by different personalities and individuals to find her identity, she overcame the curveballs thrown at her. Janie led herself to the most important accomplishment in her life, which was finding the strength, courage, and love within herself, in order to obtain her freedom and independent development as a woman.
