To be Pancakes or Not to Be Always Keep expectations highest, and never let standards down. This is a usual comment made by a motivational speaker. Nobody would want to disagree with them, neither Jill from “Pancakes” by Joan Bauer. In this story, refusing to accept any standard short of perfection is a great way to describe Jill.

And last but never least, my roommate, Mr. Dussel.” In this scene, Anne took time out of her journaling and studying to make presents for every single person living in the annex. She did it out of purely good intentions, and worked as hard as she could to bring her living-mates happiness. As you can see, Anne Frank is a breed of her own, with her never-ceasing joy and her constant attempts to make others happy. No one can deny that, at times, she was misleaded, but out of the kindness of her heart, she would do anything for others. Anne’s generosity is beyond compare, and had this been the journal of any other person, one can doubt that it would include such an abundance of
They often used dinners and baking lessons to pass on knowledge and bring our family closer together. This chapter helped me identify these psychosocial aspects as positive and helping to create belonging and security, critically reflecting on this helps me identify the isolation my Oma is feeling. Prior, they were a team creating a piece of “home”, this belonging, engrained in eating, ended with my Opa’s death. I can’t imagine the grief she experienced, as she packed away his recipes and baking attire, the fact that he was gone confirmed with each item boxed up. I wish I had known how detrimental it is to eat alone earlier, to prevent my Oma’s isolation.

Because she lives in a large household, and their circumstance; I could see why sharing her dinner might bother her.

, 2015 The documentary of the subject was a powerful yet depressing but it 's the reality of so many people. When we finished watching the documentary, "30 days" I took a break and reflect about the things I have in my life, and thanked my parents everyday for always working hard for us. Even with long hours of working, they always bring a smile on their face to hide how tired they are and entertain us. I can 't have that one day of trying to be mad at them or at something in school because I know they have important things they have to think about such as paying the bills and making/buying dinner for us. The documentary was about a couple spending 30 days living on minimum wage.
