For another example she tried many sports to try and find the sport she really likes and is good at, baseball, running, biking, swimming and soccer are a few. This last but not final reason is she didn’t do her homework when she got home, she went straight to practicing. She didn’t even stop for a meal, all she ate the hours practicing was a candy bar. This to me would have to take a lot focus and willingness. This proves that
Like any other kid, cinthia loves candy and pop. She drinks pop most of the time instead of drinking water. Cinthia has been wearing braces for almost a year. She has braces on her maxillary teeth. Cinthia brushes her teeth at least twice a day and does not floss at all.
On pg 19 we see a Miss.Caroline Fisher who is a new teacher in Maycomb, and is clueless to how stuff works around there. She is perplexed when Walter cunningham won't take her quarter to buy lunch. Scout rises up and tells Mrs.Caroline Fisher pg 20 “Miss Caroline, he’s a Cunningham”, as if he is a different species. Harper Lee does a great job showing how the innocent word of a kid may not sound prejudice to them, simply because they have grown up and been raised around this idea or thought. Harper lee does an excellent job showing how prejudice can be hidden in everyone.
When she got to eighth grade, she had to take a test to continue onto high school. She always did very well in school and passed the test easily, but her parents got her a worker’s permit and she never went to high school. In some ways, I think she regrets not going, but she is constantly working and was most likely more than happy to help her family out. With or without high school, she is unbelievably intelligent and I am so proud to call her my grandma. Just sitting down with her for a short amount of time, I learned so much about the past and I definitely recommend you talk to an elder you know.
Esperanza recognizes a somewhat better role model in Alicia. However, although Alicia has managed to provide education for herself, her role as the women of the house forces her to come home each night; “Close your eyes and they’ll go away, her father says, or You’re just imagining. And anyway, a woman’s place is sleeping so she can wake up early with the tortilla star, the one that appears early just in time to rise and catch the hind legs hide behind the sink, beneath the four-clawed tub, under the swollen floorboards nobody fixes, in the corner of your eyes” (Cisneros 22). The effect that gender roles have on Alicia’s life is expressed when she explains the imperfections she sees in Mango Street to her father who attempts to convince her otherwise. Her father’s standard, and further, the community's standard of women is too strong for Alicia to counter.
I never was hungry and I had to force myself to eat and she did not like the fact that sometimes I would skip a meal and still give her the milk. She said it's not healthy milk and she said she would prefer to give her formula instead of eating one per day and giving her milk. She works at the hospital and said she knows a lot of moms who the baby bit the nipples off or a whole bunch of stuff with breasts. She's been working at the hospital for about ten years and she said she has seen stuff happen to moms that breast fed or they are not heating healthy enough and the baby gets sick from the milk. It was hard for me to hold food down.
For example Lupe was determined to win the marble tournament. So she started to squeeze an eraser for hours building her muscles up. So her shot and accuracy could help her win, which would help her think she is as good at sports as anyone else. In addition she did push ups on her fingers making her finger more powerful to help, which is a hard thing to do. Secondly, Lupe ran home threw her backpack down with her homework and dashed straight up to her room to practice setting aside school which she loves, to practice that's surprising.
She did one more set and decided that was enough push-ups for the first day. She squeezed a rubber eraser one hundred times, hoping it would strengthen her thumb. This seemed to work because the next day her thumb was sore. She could hardly hold a marble in her hand, let alone send it flying with power. So Lupe rested that day and listened to her brother, who gave her tips on how to shoot: get low, aim with one eye, and place one knuckle on the
We get along very well, maybe better than real siblings do. When it came to staying up we would just talk to each other. She did most of the talking, I just listened. We didn’t have enough bedrooms and because I didn’t want to sleep in the living room by myself every night I had a bit set up for me next to Emily's bed on the floor. This is where I have slept ever since.
Once they’re home, Pivik prepares dinner for her husband Matthew, Spenser, herself, and their eight cats. If Pivik’s day was overwhelming, she’ll find herself quilting to blow off some steam. “As I have seen on a T-shirt,” Pivik said. “I quilt because punching people is frowned down upon.” Pivik never intended to be a college instructor, but it was a career that she grew to like and can never see herself giving it up. “I never really
Many would also point out she’s a wiz with a needle and thread, making countless costumes and formal attire for her family and friends. We can see her various crafts every Sunday morning during Sunday School Breakfast and other church events. After retiring from DISD Mary began creating culinary delights through her Sunday breakfast ministry at St Mark Missionary Baptist Church. In addition to serving in the Food Ministry, she also taught Vacation Bible School, Adult and Children Sunday School, and orchestrated a community block party for St Mark. An important aspect of Mary’s life is family: her beloved husband, Bobby Jackson has been her sunshine for 27 years whom she enjoys traveling and gardening.
