We danced all the way to the CD aisle. We stopped to looked at one of Lil Wayne’s album, The Fireman, one of his best albums I thought. We walked around in search for one more CD ,Disturbing the peace by Ludacris but realized it was sold out by it’s empty slot with just the label tag left. So we joked, laughed, and dance our way to the front counter. The cashier yells out over the loud music, fourteen-ninety nine please.

As I end my sophomore year at Old Dominion University I think about all that I have accomplished in the past two years. I think about traveling to Peru and volunteering at an Hogar and Hospital as a Freshmen, Becoming Co-President of the Women’s ministry for ODU’s Catholic Campus Ministry, and to working hard and receiving good grades in all my classes. Not only do I think about all the work that I have done so far but I also think about my family and all the sacrifices they have made for me. I think about my parents waking up early every day to go to work just so we could have food on the table and a roof over our heads.
I could no longer hear Bryce, who remained right next to me. The crowd brought life, a new feeling of excitement and anticipation, never before seen or experienced at the freshman basketball level. Our coach called us into the locker room, but I could not hear him, for the crowd was too loud and excited for me to focus on anything but them. As a result, I just stood and stared, amazed like a kid at Christmas or family seeing a skyscraper in a big city for the first

He was always a hard worker and whenever we came over he put us to work right along with him. We never complained about having to work with him because we understood he was getting old and he had a few health problems. We never asked for nothing in return when we worked with him but he would give us money anyways. When
In high school, he would perform skits over the intercom system during the morning announcements, and in talent shows the school would put on. He would frequently pull pranks in college and streak through the campus with other people from his fraternity.
The first thing out of this mouth was, “I’ve never seen you here before, are you from another club, what’s your problem, alcohol, addict, or both?” He was very firm and spoke somewhat loud but very friendly. I kindly introduced myself and told him that I was a graduate student at FIU studying clinical mental health and I was required by an assignment to attend four open 12-step meetings. After some pleasantries he expressed that he has been sober for twenty-six years and that AA, seeing other addicts recovering, and his sponsor literally saved his
But, after all, we got a lucky break. We moved to America! It was a sheer stroke of luck, pure and simple. A few years ago, back in Russia, they had a competition among schoolchildren. The topic: ‘Who knows America better?’
Getting out of the car, they exclaimed at the same pitch, volume and speed, as if they rehearsed their slogan because they knew we were coming, “Welcome to Island County, the land where no man is an island”, Oblivious to their dialogue, my dad tells me to explore the area and make some new friends. As I approached the basketball courts that was in the far distance, I took my hand out of my pockets and reach over for a handshake, “Hey, my name’s Chuck, can I play?”. Quickly the group of boys all turned around. Sweating profusely, they stood there like statues. Sporting the most luxurious and most well-known brands such as Nike, Adidas and Under Amour, I knew I was outmatched.

“She wanted her son to go there as well, but because of affirmative action or minority something...her son wasn’t accepted” (Rankine 13). This quote is interesting to me because it reminds of the case Grutter v. Bollinger, where a white female applicant to the University of Michigan Law School sued the school for violating her Fourteenth Amendment because they denied her admission. She lost in the end, but the ideology that minorities are more easily accepted into schools than whites is still thought and said by some white Americans today. The importance this quote serves to the poem is that the quote is another example of a microaggression that the author wants the reader to understand happens. “She says she grabbed the stranger’s arm and
language? Language is the foundation for any organism day to day interaction, language is not limited to spoken language, but also includes body language and gestures.
