It has been in the family for over 35 years, however, the business has affected both of their marriages. Both of them were divorced because of how much they work, which impact my life, along with my brothers. Since my dad works more than 65 hours a week, I never see him, and money is not more important than love, and power, is not more important than family. Money doesn 't buy you happiness, and I just wish for once my father would understand this. Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom taught me how to just be happy with life as it is, treat every day like it is my last, and just be prepared for whatever is thrown
My mom moved away Santee for about 7 years and she still had friends in the area. When my mom did come back her friendships were stronger than ever because they talked every week, keep up on social media like Myspace, they visit every so often. Most of the time the problem with coming together is getting everyone 's off schedule the same. My older brother can not always see us because his work keeps him busy. When people try to plan things together it is hard for everyone to get the same off days.
The only friends I have now are a few people I talk to on Instagram whom I’ve never met and just share common interest of Scion’s together. I thought to myself what if I moved to where they all where and left this place? But I knew I couldn’t do that because I was broke. I get up one day once again to the yelling. I decide I need a getaway, something to keep my mind occupied.

I wasn’t able to recognize their names. Some kids I couldn’t memorize how to spell their names, but I definitely made a lot more friends. I’m only able to memorize Julie and Kyla ( from a different school). On Wednesday, one of my cabin mates had to move to another cabin because she had no partner. Her partner had left home because they was really homesick.
My Literacy Narrative I was never truly an avid reader when I was younger. I was the oldest of five siblings and left in charge of taking care of my younger brothers and sister. I was more prone to spending time outside than reading a book. Of course, I did find myself enjoying a good mystery novel, but playing ball would always trump even a good book. All through school, I would find myself actively participating in one sport to another.
Honestly even though my dad is not a member of my household when I was younger, that was the destination for if I got into any trouble. Another reason why I suffered depression is that with my mom going to work almost every night I spent a lot of time alone. Furthermore, since many of my friends around me had their dad in their lives I rather felt sad that I did not have
I am highly skilled at taking responsibility, but I lack the patience, and I plan to practice that by using others frame of reference of time. I have learned to master responsibility given multiple tasks of being a student, mother, and a wife. I learned to master responsibility after I had my first child in my first year of college. It was very difficult to be a mother, wife, and an honors student. I started procrastinating because I felt exhausted most of the time and I would not do homework.
Reason being, I was the oldest of three living with a single mother. When there are no books to read or have read to me it becomes easy just not to read. My passion for writing came from the shortage of books in the household where I lived. Not reading as a child or having someone read to me has really caused problems. Having to read in front of the class as a child was my worst nightmare, my only fear was mispronouncing the really big words.
