Born in the 1940’s definitely allowed her to experience many aspects of life that I wasn't able to experience myself. I knew that life was different many decades ago but I didn't realize how different until I asked my grandma about how her family was like growing up, or how it was like interacting with her friends. Other Social changes like going to school and having relationships in those times might be unusual to my generation today but back then it was just everyday things people like my grandma enjoyed doing. First off,
I too had already given up on the idea that I was going to college. The discovering age as Gonzales describes it completely disoriented me; I was no longer feeling the same aspirations because everything I had set my goals on was being questioned because of all my limitations. I’m currently 23 turning 24 soon and I feel that I’m already at the coping age. I see all the effort I have put into school, but is it really going to pay off or will my options continue to be limited. After experiencing this my perspective towards my family didn’t change drastically, but before there was no sense of pride, which could be because I was younger and didn’t understand.
I was unsure of why it happened since my cousin was not married. My mother then explained that any female can have children and sex isn’t always strictly limited to marriage. Shortly after learning sex happens outside of marriage. I discovered my father was having an affair and my mother did not know. I told my mother what I saw when coming home from school one afternoon due to an early dismissal that my father clearly forgot about.
You still need an example to show this. Mid-World, being the next one out from In-World, represents the stages of life from teen to young-adult. This is also the area of this imaginary plain of existence where most of the denizens reside and is therefore the place with the most action and conflict. After the developmental phases of life, humans start to make decisions and choices to influence their own lives. Choosing a college, a major, a partner to spend the rest of your years with are just a few milestones everyone faces.
So my mom taught me to not be negative or rude to those who had that one barbie everyone wanted so bad. But when we did have money, I would get rewarded with a toy because I would be doing good in school or behaved well at home. However when it came to my older siblings, they weren’t gifted with the same opportunities like me. My brother and sister were high school drop outs, so they really didn’t set the right example for me. Their actions led to me setting high standards for myself because everyone in my family thought I would be a highschool drop out like my siblings.
When I say all I mean that some families could be deported, so my parents got their citizenship in order not to be afraid of being forced out of your own home. For example I always as a kid wanted to go to sleep over, but my parents said no because they didn’t know the parents. Another time my sister wanted to hang out with her friends, but my parents said no once again then my sister said you can meet my friends my mom said let me think about it, so she did and my oldest sister went to meet up with her friends. In the end my sister was allowed to go, but it took some time for my sister to get permission from my mom to get to go out with different people other than family. Their reason makes sense, but my sister hates that they do this.
It was the best decision they had ever made. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be here and learning with the other students. I know it was tough for them in America since they can’t speak English and I have seen them break down, but they never give up. I am really grateful for my parents because they have given up so much just for my sisters and I. They are the role model for me and without them, I wouldn’t have come this far to be successful.
Throughout my entire life, I have challenged myself not only academically but also to better myself, and my community. I try my best at everything that I do, whether that is in my schoolwork, at home, or at work after school. Often times when people hear that I am an only child, they assume that I get everything handed to me, but that assumption is completely wrong. My parents have always taught me that you must work for success. I believe that I have been pretty independent for most of my life, not only because my parents got divorced when I was ten years old, and because I am an only child, but also because my dad moved to Colorado leaving me with only my mom and grandparents in town as my family.
I acted like I wasn’t upset but I was. I just didn’t understand why my dad didn’t want to be a family anymore and why he didn’t want anything to do with us kids. I hated him, every time he asked me to do something with him I would say I was busy when I wasn’t, or just not even answer. The divorce got finalized my sophomore year, and since I was 16 I didn’t have to see my dad on certain days I could just live with my
The curfew may make it more difficult for them, however, if someone wants something strongly enough, they will find a way around any obstacle. For example, if a teenager wanted to drink alcohol, they could easily go over to a friend's house over the weekend and drink there and stay the night, without ever breaking curfew. In conclusion, a 10 pm weekday curfew and a midnight weekend curfew should not be placed on teenagers. So many teens partake in sports practices, church gatherings, study sessions, club meetings, work, etc. after school and many may not be able to meet curfew.
