I’m the first generation of my family to be Mexican -American, but I have been introduced to the Mexican culture since I was born. I appreciate the difficulties my parents have faced to make me the person that I am today even though I wasn’t born in Mexico my parents have taught me the language and the culture which I’m so proud of being part of. For others being Hispanic is actually being born in any Latin American countries which is not true at all. Being Hispanic is much more than my cultural background it actually describes how much I appreciate my culture and how I get to experience things other people don’t. I fit into the Hispanic community through the experiencing the culture first hand ,participating in traditions and planning to include my culture in my future.
When thinking about marriage, the first thing that comes to mind is a huge wedding, family party, and dropping thousands to make it happen. Bluebeard kind of lead us into another direction of marriage, the trials and tribulations inside marriages. We ought to read Bluebeard as a warning against marriage because Carter, Perrault, and Oates present the idea that marriage don’t always go as planned: betrayal, trust, and secrets are in play as well. It takes responsibility, patience, and love in order to have a functioning marriage, without these factors, problems will follow. Every marriage/relationship goes through their share of trials and tribulations. There’s no such thing as a perfect marriage, but there is such a thing as “happy living”.

In almost every region there is always some type of celebration. Celebrating the transition from a child to a young adult. In Hispanic cultures they celebrate this transition is similar as the American culture. However the festive way “Quinceañera” & “Sweet sixteen” also has its distinction.
Monsters have always been perceived as creatures with petrifying characteristics. They are often described as dire, dreadful, and horrendous. An individual deemed as a monster by an entire community must have committed atrocious acts; however, the unnamed protagonist in Margaret Atwood’s short story “Lusus Naturae” was considered monstrous by the entire faction despite neither committing such acts. The protagonist, who’s suffering from an illness called porphyria, was disdained and classified as a monster merely because of her looks—her yellow eyes, pink teeth, red fingernails, and long dark sprouting hair around her chest and arms. Even though her outward appearance is comparably peculiar with respect to the appearance of typical humans, one cannot basically imply that she is a monster. As ironic as it may sound, the protagonist’s family, along with the priest and the townspeople, are the genuine monsters in this literary piece.

It is the year 1861, I am a ten year old boy named Kevin living in the slums of New England and have lost my parents to a disease called Measles. It is tough living in such a horrible place like this I hate eating rats and trash all day after seeing a group of pickpocketers scattered around the streets stealing money from rich people, they did it so quietly and they didn’t even notice.
I had destroyed the majestic carpet, it was shattered in pieces while I heard a mournful scream racing around the room, the master exasperatedly grabbed my leg and ruthlessly swung me across the room into the tomb as I went into survival mode. The tomb was an old filthy cistern, buried under the court with a slippery stairway leading up to the rusty iron door covered with vines. There was no light down there besides the sun rays that managed to brutally flash through the cracks and holes. The tomb had very little air, you nearly suffocated. It feels like someone is grabbing your throat and squeezing it. When you become itchy you have the desire to itch yourself, but that just makes things worse as the blisters on your hand become jaded.
Seven million, three-hundred thousand children, nationally are affected by parents being incarcerated for days, weeks, months, and even years. For ten days I was affected by my father’s incarceration at the Leavenworth County Jail. To some this is nothing, but to my family, this was a huge ordeal. Not only was he absent from our lives for ten days, which was longer than he’d ever been gone, but we had to transport him there, plus watch as he walked away from his wife, his kids, and his freedom.
