Hulga fits all of those categories in a way, she had a limp because she did not have a leg, she was not physically ugly, but the way she thought of herself was, and she was undesirable because she did not take care of herself properly. “One of her major triumphs was that her mother had not been able to turn her dust into Joy…” (O 'Connor 484), this could mean that with name decision Hulga had made her mother could not turn it into something positive, because once something is dust you can not turn it back into its original form. Hulga’s name change symbolized that she was not the same girl she once was or she would be. In addition, the author inserts Vulcans name to compare him to Hulga’s
In the beginning of the novel, Perry was an uncertain teen who didn’t know where his place in life was “The real question was what I was doing, what any of us were doing, in Nam” (69). By the middle of the book, Perry started to become doubtful of himself and started to say Jenkins and Carroll died because of him “In a way i felt real bad just for being alive to write it” (110). And by the last few chapters he really starts to lose his way and lose his judgement from right and wrong “Maybe when we all got back to the world and everybody thought we were heroes for winning it, then it would seem right from there” (229). During my reading of Fallen Angels, I began to notice the theme, and I think the theme is that War is devastating to people because it can totally mess you up psychologically and physically. Perry for example was already uncertain of his future and his knee injury already had him on edge.
For example, Francis doesn’t do anything to stop him, “how long did I stayed there listening ?”(Cormier 95). He could have easily done something to prevent that. In addition, he just stayed there and listened. He didn’t react fast enough in the situation which a hero would react and would’ve done something to stop him. He doesn’t defend his girl which does not make him a hero.
When Jim was asked a question he would avoid eye contact with the interviewer or rub his face with his left hand. Also when answering questions he was very indecisive about his answer or using a scapegoat by saying, “could be about someone else and blaming me”. He was unable to answer questions because he could not recall what happened or he would play dumb and doesn’t understand it. When Jim was asked, “could you ever think of a reason why someone would teach a little girl and he replied “I don’t know, curiosity?” which is kind of suspicious and out of the ordinary.
The next few weeks were hard, but I endured. The constant picking and teasing about my best friend being a girl really affected my self-esteem to the point in which I didn’t want to speak to anyone. I was scared that I would be judged for being myself, and that is the worst feeling in the world. Anytime
This likely because she left him and Christopher on their own because she couldn’t handle the responsibility she had and also because her core beliefs didn’t line up with what she had to do. Although you don 't always have to share beliefs with the people around you sometimes it can lead to conflicts and relationships failing which is what we see in
I had made some friends of my own, but did not feel entirely welcomed by others. I struggled to fit in with the girls and could not figure out why I felt so alienated. I was always nice and friendly so it confused me why I was not accepted. While it was nothing entirely mean, rumors were spread that some of my sorority sisters felt I did not fit because I did not party like they did or because they simply could not see me as their sister. It hurt my self-esteem to hear that the values I cherished were not
This narrator had permanently tattooed her left wrist and unfortunately, this tattoo got messed up. In the text she says, “Spooked that I hadn’t noticed this until it was too late, I read that four-word phrase for a solid hour, waiting for a spelling error to materialize.” She made a small mistake that she regretted throughout her life. She just couldn’t learn to love it. Second of all, regret is another main point to this story. As teens especially, there are so many
When the daughter-in-law spoke, she mumbled a bit which made me confused. Constantly saying she was innocent was a bit irritating to me, but I believed her. The commercials in between scenes were distracting and irrelevant to me. I had never heard of the cigarette brand which made me feel lost and uninterested. When the evidence was discussed I started
There is no structure to the therapy session and therefore it relies on the client to be heavily involved in the counselling session and this maybe too optimistic for some clients as they are not getting answers, so they may find it hard to progress. According to Seligman (2006) it also “Fails to prepare clients for the real world due to the unconditional positive regard of the
