That call can be our own need to do stuff because some situations in our life forces us to do it. We don’t ever choose our own call to adventure, it’s literally given to us without us asking. As I mentioned above, my parents weren’t fortunate enough to go to school and get educated. They moved to America so that we could be given that opportunity to go to school and have a better life. I never really took school seriously, I never even dreamt of being a college student, I wasn’t motivated.
Society’s values influence people to construct their personal mores around them, and those who do not are not accepted by society. In our society, those who have well-paying careers are valued above those who do not. So when McCandless decided against following the path society expects him to, his parents were upset. “Chris informed his parents that he had no intention of going to college. When Walt and Billie suggested that he needed a college degree to attain a fulfilling career, Chris answered that careers were demeaning ‘twentieth-century inventions,’ more of a liability than an asset, and that he would do fine without one, thank you” (114).
A unknown author once said “The past cannot be changed, forgotten, edited, or erased it can only be accepted.” Dwelling in the past and wishing it away, takes away from the beauty of the day. In the book something wicked this way comes by Ray Bradbury three characters, Jim Nightshade, Mrs. Foley, Charles Halloway, will all struggle with age acceptance. Jim had always desired the knowledge and wisdom of being an adult. When the carousel came to town Jim along many others were tempted to change their age. Jim soon realized he cannot cheat to and skip years to gain wisdom by using the carousel being the carousel would only physically change him.
You can't love a person who lives that way without fearing him too. Maybe even hating him a little.” Baba had a one-dimensional view of the world, he saw things very simply and saw things as being either good or bad. I think that this might've impacted Amirs independence and personal views on his life experiences, as everything he had witnessed and believed had been influenced by his father's beliefs. This is where I'm coming from. The current year twelve cohort are going to move on to further study and other will jump straight into the workforce, and there will always be people who want to change you into something that you're
I also disagree with Dalton because I believe that working hard may get you to where you want to be in life. I’ve learned that nothing is free in this country and if you want something you have to earn it. It’s just the matter of trying and not giving up. My father is someone who has gone through hardship and back breaking labor to get where he is now in life. He started off working with my grandpa in the jewelry district.
To be honest, I never thought I would be able to graduate from high school or even get accepted to college, but after so many years I am achieving everything that I thought of as impossible. I have two important motivation one of them are my parent. I always seen them working
The way that Walter thinks is that if he had lots of money he would be better and act different, but sometimes people with too much don’t really act like they enjoy and also money never solves big problems but walter thinks it will. I believe that if you have too much money you think that everything is going so well at the moment and you don't care about spending money, but one day something could occur and you will lose all of so this just shows that no one should rely on money. In life you need to make sacrifices that could be should i spend money on an investment that could be helpful and help out my family in the future or if that I should buy something so I could help out my family instead of later. I believe that you should always help out the family when they are in need because something could happen and it could all go away. Having money should never define the person you are because you could be rich you could just be rude and not help anyone and be selfish and if you are wealthy you could have the nicest heart and be very helpful to people that are in need.
She explained I had to be really on top of my studies and I had no room for small mistakes. She was not too thrilled when I told her I was getting an after school job. Maintaining my GPA and working at a fast food restaurant, Kentucky Fried Chicken, was the biggest challenge I faced, and today I am happy to say I overcome it.
