So I told myself I will think of it at school so I did and nothing clicked, I was thoughtless. So I asked my mother what was wrong with Duke and she told me she 's been taking him to obedience class and once she stated that I was shocked and went on through the day thinking all
“When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin,” (part 1 p.76). Gregor is not dismayed by his overnight transformation but is only worried about getting to work on time. “The next train went at seven; to catch that he would have to make frantic haste and his samples weren’t even packed up yet;” (part 1, p 78). Gregor can barely get out of bed and he is worried about how he will make it to work. It is not until he interacts with members of his family that the effects of his transformation truly affect him.
Time for another fun day at Camp Cadet, I think as I rub my tired eyes and push myself to a sitting position, being careful to not hit my head on the bottom bunk that I have called my bed for the past three nights. I throw my legs off of the bed and allow my eyes a moment to adjust to the light, afterwards jumping out of
It was on the night of Thursday, July 7, that the first incident occurred, when the bedclothes were gently pulled off his bed. Of course he naturally thought it was a joke, and shouted to his companions to stop. As no one could explain what was happening, a match was struck, and the bedclothes were found to be at the window, from which the other bed had been rolled just when the clothes had been taken off his bed. Things were put stright and the light blown out, but, his account goes on the say it wasn't long until we heard some hammering in the room. This lasted for a few minutes, getting quicker and quicker.
“Brrrring!” rang the alarm. I woke up, turned the alarm off, and buried myself under the covers. They were as soft as a kitten’s fur, and as warm as the air from a heater. After a long hug from my blanket, I finally got hot and went to use the bathroom. “Niyah, when you come in here for a second, please,” my mom said.

One lesson that this story suggests is that if you get caught up in your own jealousy, you can end up hurting others. In the beginning, the details in the story show the children’s immense jealousy toward Margot. In one scene, Bradbury describes how the children often dream about the sun. The text says, “they were dreaming and remembering gold or a yellow crayon or a coin large enough to buy the world with.” This connects to the idea that the children are jealous because the fact that they are dreaming about the sun means that they are grieving the sun.
