I believe in finding yourself in others. In the 21st century when you grow up you are surrounded in a world of technology, ungratefulness, and high expectations.

Television was not accepted into the household. Even today her parents still do not have a TV . “Growing up was very hard without a television because I didn’t feel connected to the world.” A major event took place in the film industry. The movie Star Wars was developed and was a top grossing film. Since Deb’s parents didn’t let her watch movies she snuck out with her sister just so she could see it because all of her friends were raving about it.
The article “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” by Amy Chua will be evaluated. Chua starts off by listing things her daughter would never be able to do. Some of these include watching TV/playing computer games, never getting a grade lower than an A, and never playing either the piano or violin. She does this to show right off the bat that she is much more strict as a parent. She then goes on and explains why Chinese parents are more strict on their children than Western parents.
2001 was a year that most people find devastating, but as a one year old, unaware of the tragedy happening in the world, I found peace in a dazzling movie known as Monsters, Inc. As a toddler, I found myself attracted and intrigued by the big fluffy blue monster, Sully, and the one eyed green monster, Mike Wazowski. In my mind, I trusted these two monsters and I wanted my own Mike Wazowski and Sully in real life. Looking back at it as I’m older, my views on the movie and the lessons I’ve learned still haven’t changed. However, I’ve been able to pinpoint the Mike and Sully in my life, my parents. Although Monsters Inc. is an animation, the lessons I’ve learned from watching it have made me more open-minded and aware of those around me.

This annoyed Nala so much that once she said yes to playing fetch once. While the dog counted to twenty-five, Nala hid the bone so far he didn’t return for one whole
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father refused to let her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the old South. When she told the men to see colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.
We have to!”, as I pointed to the gigantic blue and grey water slide, my mother 's face scrunched up with disgust. For she doesn 't like roller coaster, nor huge water slides, exactly like the one that is right in front of us. She turned back around and told my brothers and me to put some pep in our step so we can get to the rides, as if she didn 't hear a word I just said. As my family moved along, I trudged behind because I knew we weren 't going to the enormous water slide. After we went through the park and rode the other little water rides, roller coasters, and of course the lazy river, we decided to call it a day and head home, but since we were on the other half of the park, to walk back we had to pass the huge, terrifying, grey and blue water
When I was in the third grade, my parents sat my brother and I down and announced that they were getting a divorce. Most children would have been shocked or devastated by the news, but I wasn 't; I was actually excited. Sadly, I was unaware of the trials and tribulations a divorce entails, especially one that last 8 years. When I was growing up, I never truly witnessed a “functional” marriage like that of one you might see in movie. I never saw my parents hug, kiss, hold hands, or say “I love you” to one another.
