While that may be true, He was trying to keep his past hidden so he could have a fresh start on life. Next, people may claim that Jimmy Valentine isn't trying to live a moral life because he stole something a week after he got out of jail, and in the text it says “A week after the release of Valentine, 9762, there was a neat job of safe-burglary done in Richmond, Indiana, with no clue to the author…”That’s Dandy Jim Valentine’s autograph…”. This means that he stole something right after he got out of jail, and stealing isn’t a great start to living a moral life. This isn't true because when he got out of jail, he headed to the cafe, then he was already heading to live in Elmore to start a new life ,so someone else committed that burglary in Indiana. Finally, one may claim that Jimmy Valentine isn't trying to live a moral life because Jimmy was encouraging his friend Billy to steal by selling Billy his tools that will guarantee you to open safes quicker and better.
He rose from an impoverished childhood in rural North Dakota to become fabulously wealthy. However, he did this by participating in organized crime, including distributing illegal alcohol and trading in stolen securities. He was once also in college at St. Olaf’s College, but dropped out after only two weeks because he could not bear the janitorial job with which he was paying his tuition. Though he never looks back on any of the mistakes he made in his past as he says “So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. (Fitzgerald 149-153)” Kanye West is a very similar man to Jay Gatsby, especially since he also came from an impoverished childhood, living in a single parent household in the slums of a crime-ridden Southside Chicago.
Marquez chose an unnamed, unknown, first person narrator. The narrator parallels with the reader in that the narrator and the audience are both given all conflicting perspectives of every version uncovered. The narrator does not share the same association the other characters he interviews in the novella because he no longer lives in their village. The narrator 's loose attachment from the murder is evident when he says, “I met him a short while after she [narrator’s mother] did, when I came home for Christmas vacation” (28). The narrator was not in his town for the event so he is not as connected as most of the characters that share their story in the novella.
Over the past years Gatsby thinks that the reason Daisy left him is because he wasn't financially stable “because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me.” (130) Gatsby thought that showing his wealth and nice gifts could make her run back to him. Gatsby makes many attempts to gain acceptance from others with materialistic things this he made visible with throwing immaculate parties that he never really invited individuals they just came "if I attended his "little party" that night" (41), but did Gatsby really do it all for Daisy ? Once Gatsby and Daisy gets in contact it's impossible for him to try not to impress her it's been five years and he wants her back so his strategy is simple and vague because not all women are
I have never been to an AA meeting before, and I had a completely different imagination of how a meeting takes place. I thought the meeting was held in a depressing state, dark, and everyone is sad/drunk. However, my experience was exactly the opposite of what I imagined. Even though this was the first AA meeting that I have attended, I feel like I have been attending AA all my life. The members are friendly, supportive, and not shy to express their proudness of being part of AA.
Another thing that they state is that they have low rates of high school and college graduations. Since they aren’t graduating and they go into the world without knowing what to do and since the unemployment rate is down they will go to drinking. The last thing that they stated was the fact that Native Americans don’t have medical insurance or access to health care so it makes it hard for them to get the help they need and if they are in pain then they can turn to alcohol to forget about the pain. “Unlike other cultures that have ingested alcohol for thousands of years, the relationship between indigenous Americans and alcohol is relatively new” (Alcohol: It 's Different For Native Americans). I find this a good problem because it makes sense they have built up a higher tolerance and they end up being addicted to them.
