I didn’t have much gymnastics experience, besides when my brother and I did flips and tricks on my neighbors trampoline when they weren’t home, but that was the only experience I had with gymnastics besides what my mother taught me. I shot out of my bed, got my gymnastics stuff ready and was running out the door before my mother pulled me back in and told me it wasn’t time to go yet. She told me, I had a couple more hours to go before it was time. I drug myself inside and sat on the couch, dreading waiting longer than what I had too. My dad had got done cooking breakfast, eggs, bacon, hashbrowns and sausage.

I was 8 months old when it happened. My father was down at the pond about a quarter of a mile away from where we lived. I remember it like it was just yesterday.

The girl bore this patiently, saying not a word, but she thought ‘I picked up the scorpion with my own hand so I'll save myself with my own mind’” (“Little Red Fish”).
When I was six years old I was forgotten at a Dairy Queen by my parents. They hadn’t meant to, of course, and with four rambunctious children always wandering it was a miracle it hadn’t happened earlier. I was in the bathroom for only a few minutes, and when I discovered that my parents had up and left me, I collapsed into a puddle of tears in the middle of the restaurant. I couldn’t understand how they had forgotten me. My life subsequent to that point has been a constant work in progress to make sure that I won’t be forgotten again, be that during, or after my life.
What does the term “family” actually refer to? Growing up, we notice that we are never taught what a family means, but rather we realize it as time passes. It is hard to admit a fact, where your own family could turn their back on you anytime; one we refuse to believe, but after reading it Kafka’s “The Metamorphosis” you realize that it could. “The Metamorphosis” by Franz Kafka is a novella that deals with the dehumanization of its protagonist, Gregor Samsa, after his absurd transformation into a gigantic insect, by his family. Kafka’s writing style is unparalleled, with surreal as his genre; using the stream of thought to reflect the slow, but steady, change in the psychological mind state of its protagonist.

The short story, All Summer in a Day, created by Ray Bradbury exposes the truth that regret will always follow after a bad decision and will reveal the feeling of being ashamed of what the decision was. In this fascinating story that takes place on Venus, there are multiple examples to prove this universal statement to be true. However, this considerable theme can be proven to be true in everyday life as well. One example, in the story, to support this theme happens when Margot’s classmates come back inside after enjoying hours of the sun and being outside. Within those many hours, every single classmate had forgotten about the poor girl they locked in the closet shortly before the sun came out.
