Juliet: Maturing Woman As teenagers grow, they rebel and leave the nest, and can have little thought as to how this affects other people. Juliet Capulet is a stunning example of this exact concept. At 13, Juliet is finally growing into herself and who she wants to be, and becoming a fully fledged woman by leaving her childhood comforter, the Nurse, for her husband, and earning the title of “Maturing Woman”. Her growth and maturation as a person can be seen clearly through the play, coming clearly into the light in Act 3 Scene 5, first through her conversation with her mother and the masterful way she worked through those rocky waters, and secondly through her comment about the nurse and how they will never be as close. Capulet also calls her
As time went on, she wanted Jing-mei to become the epitome of a child star. Jing-mei expresses, “Soon after my mother got this idea about Shirley Temple, she took me to a beauty training student in the Mission district and put me in the hands of a student who could barely hold the scissors without shaking. Instead of big fat curls, I emerged with an uneven mass of crinkly black fuzz” (Tan 221). This shows that her mother’s eagerness for a famous daughter is emerging, and it comes to the point where she wants to change her child’s
With this quote, the teenage brain makes choices with consequences, look for new sensations, and seek out social and emotional information. During the second scene of Act II, Romeo and Juliet make the decision to marry each other hours after meeting at the Capulet party. Romeo seeks out Friar Lawrence to ask, “but this I pray, That thou consent to marry us today” (Shakespeare 410). Here Romeo is asking Friar Lawrence to marry them that same day, even though he and Juliet met the night before. Both the audience and Friar Lawrence are surprised by this, as only twenty four hours earlier Romeo was in love with Rosaline and depressed that she did not love him back.
He moves on from Rosaline and is already interested in Juliet. He totally rebounds from her and is falling for Juliet. Also, Juliet is immature in relationships because she says, “I will not fail; 'tis twenty years till then” (2.2.171). She basically says that she will send servants but that it will feel like twenty years until Nurse brings back news from Romeo, about the wedding. Readers see in this excerpt that Juliet is dramatic which shows everyone that she is juvenile.
Vic has in his mind that it is very easy for him to get any girl; however his young personality is soon going to lead him to a disaster. When Vic arrives at the party with Enn a girl opened the door and he asks for her name right away, after that he says: “that has to be the prettiest name he had ever heard”... “ what was worse that he said it like he meant it” (Gaiman 120). This means he is already flirting with a girl he does not even know, as the party goes on Vic become conscious of what error he has committed. Everything comes to a conclusion when Vic got out of the room, he was with the girl he met at the door; he was scare and crying, “he wiped his mouth [and says] she wasn’t a—[then] stopped” (Gaiman 126).

From an young age we are taught that exertion should be secretive and never spoken of, which makes this whole topic awkward, especially since women are suppose to hold this impossible standard of not using the bathroom. In fact, up to 15% of the population avoid public restrooms all together because they feel so uncomfortable in them, therefore when you take away the sexual divide that everyone in the U.S. knows, tensions grow even greater. Despite our advanced modern attitudes towards gender equality, it makes sense, that the idea of a man in a women’s restroom would provoke a strong reaction and vise versa. Women and men, alike, don’t want to expose their bodily functions to anyone,
Some people do not know what to do if they confront a huge assignment.

Lucy’s rejection of society’s emphasis on appearance frees her from the insecurities that are brought upon by a self-image based on looks. Instead, she finds her self-worth in her intelligence and autonomy. At this point, Lucy has lived in America for over a year, and still she says “Everything I could see made me feel I would never be part of it, never penetrate to the inside, never be taken in” (Kincaid, 154). Although she has found this new independence in America that she would not have found as a woman at home, she is still pained by her disconnection with the society around her. From leaving her family to leaving Mariah, her path to becoming an independent woman has forced herself to sacrifice a sense of security that comes with belonging.
I also noticed how worn out and drained the mother looks as she is sitting on the floor. When I started the interview with Margaret she stated that, “I can’t deal with this anymore.
