After listening to a topic about drugs, somebody will learn to stay away from it. For example, when I was young I was told not to do drugs.

I would ask my Mother why, she told me the story about her Mom doing drugs since she was a teenager.
This mainly is about what I want to do with my life as I am coming to the point where I will have to make a decision on major life choices such as where I want to go to college, what field I want to go into, and many others.

For year I had a recurring nightmare, about a woman insulting and attacking my parents; it was a hazy dream that most of the time was forgotten by the time I woke up. I never commented the recurring situation of the dream with my parents, mostly because I thought it was just a bad and silly dream; it wasn’t until I was 10 years old and by chance I met the woman in my dream; to make a long story short, she was my father ex-wife, and my supposed dream was an actual fight between my parents and her, when I was 4 years old. My point is, it took me years to recognize the event, let alone understand the nature of the feelings behind it. Mostly, because I was not exposed to those feeling and my innocence was not very disrupted.

Even without all the luck in the world, the family, as does the plant, continues to find a way to survive and keep moving forward. When Walter lost all the money, the family did not let the money define them, and they kept moving forward as the plant does with little nutrients. Henceforth, the Youngers ability to survive with what they have and keep moving forward bears a resemblance to the Mama’s
The morals and actions they see as a child affect the morals and actions they withhold and conduct as an adult. Jane had a very strong individual as a father. “He taught her tolerance, philanthropy, and a strong work ethic. He encouraged her to pursue higher education, but not at the expense of losing her femininity and the prospect of marriage and motherhood -- the expectation for all upper-class young ladies at that time” (“Jane Addams.” Women). In the 1800s a girl’s father encouraging her to pursue an education was not the “norm”; however, Jane Addams was never a the stereotypical “lady” during her lifetime.
