"Some Lessons From the Assembly Line" review In the article "Some Lessons From the Assembly Line" by Andrew Braaksma (2005). Braaksma is trying to reach the audience of college students and blue-collar workers. With his personal experience he shows how his friends who attend college and haven 't worked long hours don 't understand why he is happy to be back at school, they don 't understand what it is like to work long hard hours all day long and not be paid accordingly. "There are few things as cocksure as a college student who has never been out in the real world, and people my age always seem to overestimate the value of their time and knowledge. After a particularly exhausting string of 12-hour days at a plastics factory, I remember being shocked at how small my check seemed" Braaksma (2005).
In the mind of a master procrastinator Imagine you having this big test coming up. You plan to divide the studying over some days. But then you rather watch that movie, or hang with your friends thinking “but I still have the weekend”. But on the weekend you want to do other things. As a result of this, when there’s only one day left you panic and have to study everything in one day and sit up the whole night.
We as a whole are a potent word, we have the facility to do anything as long as we endeavor and believe we have the potential to. As long as we endeavor to be prosperous or endeavor to get an education, then it’s okay to fail as long as we get back up. Another quote is from Michael Jordan and it verbally expresses, “I can accept failure, everyone fails at something, But I can’t accept not trying”. We all at one point in our lives will feel like we should not endeavor because we don’t want to fail, but you can’t give up without endeavoring. As it appears to many, a graduation ceremony is supposed to be a special moment in your life, a day you shall recollect.
Denying Katherine her basic needs like food and sleep wasn’t something he would have done normally or with a more normal girl. This is a consequence because he had to be mean to Katherine and not like himself. This again, is the price he has to pay in order to be with Katherine and get her family’s
Squished between two groups of family and friends that couldn’t relate to me or how I was living. Although I had people in my life for support, they didn’t understand. Anzaldúa’s identity is strained in a similar manner of being caught in a trap with language and a sense of community.

In the essay “Working at Wendy’s,” Joey Franklin states, “I only applied here because I knew I would get hired, says Sara the first night I work with her.” This situation related to my experience when I am hunting the job. In that time, I do not care what my job is as long as I realized that I need to help my family to pay my tuition fees and to other expenses. However, on the first day of my job I am not sure how to associate with another employee and to communicate to the customer because I am
No one knew what was real and what was not real, Distorting their whole perspective of life forever at this point. As small is this revelation may seem, Imagine the person who you recognized to be your model for life, wasn’t who you thought them to be? You never realize how significant a situation until you are put into the perspective of others. Despite knowing who Katharina and Scarlett were, They decided that they didn’t want Katharina, and they wanted Scarlett. That was the solution to the problem.
The reality of the situation was that she had no control over her father’s death. There was nothing or no way that she could have prevented the events that took place. Although she was extremely angry with the situation at hand she learned that she had other things to be grateful for. She wanted people to know that even though something or someone has passed away you can’t stay stuck in the state of depression forever. You have to step back and look at your life because the reality is, life still moves on.

Phoebe tells him, “you don’t like anything that’s happening.” (169) It is then that Holden reveals one his his deepest wishes. He hopes that he can be the “catcher in the rye”.
It's just curiosity. But parents telling them is not a good idea. Some parents assume that because the child has experienced many of the same events the parent has in that household the child probably knows why the parents had to divorce. Even so, the parent has to find a way to heal the scar that the child has instead of leaving it as it is just because the parents experienced the same thing. Other parents want to protect their children from experiencing or even knowing about unhappy or unpleasant events so they decide to tell them very little about the actual reasons for the divorce.
