I could tell there was going to be a separation between the girls. I wanted to stay around my friends and they wanted to stay with theirs; but part of the camp experience was getting to know new people, so the counselors made us combine the rooms with girls from the other states. I knew I was going to have a hard time getting along with these girls especially after the remarks I heard. I stayed positive as long as I could, I wanted to have a good time at camp and enjoy my friends and the whole camp experience. A few days later, as I was getting ready and doing my hair, one of the girls from Mississippi came up to me and said, “Are all you girls from California so prissy and high maintenance?
Obstacles due to her age and physical condition are not the only hindrance during her journey; she also experiences mental fatigue. Phoenix’s mind plays tricks on her throughout her journey. While passing through a cornfield, she thought she saw a ghost which was really just a scarecrow. She is also talking to the animals as she makes her journey into town, telling them “[o]ut from under these feet” and “[o]ut of my path.” Phoenix suffers from memory loss as well. Once she is at the doctor’s office in Natchez, the nurse asks her about her grandson, and Phoenix doesn’t answer for several minutes because she forgot the reason she made the journey.
While going through the woods, she runs into a wolf. So she talks to him, not knowing that he was a bad person. She told him where she was headed to and he headed in the same way she is going. In, “Little Red Hood,” the little darling damsel girl was the main character, which she was going through the forest to her grandmother’s house to give her a cake and a bottle of wine for her illness. Going through the forest she ran into a wolf also.
I see my friends getting good jobs and pursuing their education and I was a sixteen year old mother with nothing to look forward to. My life have change so much and my goal was to go back to school and complete my education. For the past three years my mother and brothers always encouraged me to continue where I left off. Finally one day I decided to reapply to a secondary school to complete in education. I try looking for a job first to take care of my daughter and pay for my finances but that wasn’t successful.
I was an only child by then, so she was my partner always. As I grew, I stopped paying attention to Wanda, because I was too worried with school, friends and my two baby siblings, so she became more a nuisance than a loved pet. June of 2009 my father told me that my dog had cancer, and that she would not live more than six months. From that day on every free time I had, I was with her. Playing, caressing her, or just sitting by her side.
It has been great being able to rest and get what I want. Soon those two months were over, it was back to reality. I had to go back to working in the fields. I didn’t like the thought of that but after a day I got used to waking up early and working every day. While being imprisoned, I made a lot of new friends who were so nice and generous.
My brother and I stayed at my Grandpa’s house most of the time she was up there mostly only going home to sleep and get ready for school the next day, it was weird and confusing but my grandpa was good at getting our minds off of things and keeping our spirits up when he needed to. While my grandmother was in the hospital, my brother and I didn’t get to go see her, we were either too young to go in or my parents didn’t think we should see her that way, I can’t remember. When she finally came home, they said the disease was gone but she was still very sick. She looked completely different and she was very weak. They had started her on chemotherapy, and from what I understand
With a variety of beanbags for those few special students (AHEM me! :D) This kind of cheerful, cozy, and just snug as a bug feeling makes me feel at home, knowing that Mrs.Kerr was there for me and still is as of today, as she always will be! Mrs.Kerr cares about her students SO much. She isn't just one of them ordinary teachers that arrive to school five minutes before class starts and leaves immediately after. She takes the time and effort
She has been through so many obstacles in her lifetime and one way or another she has overcome them all. I want to be just like her; strong-willed, passionate about life, tries to see the good in everything even though it looks bad, and beautiful. The second set of people means the world to me: My wonderful Husband, my handsome son, and my beautiful daughter. They are the reason why I enjoy waking up each morning. You see, I am a stay at mom and wife and I enjoy every minute of it.
She wanted to keep her friends happy even though she knew she belonged at home for her curfew. She displayed an internal conflict between wanting to keep her friends happy and following the rules as she has always done. She would conform to her peer’s beliefs changing her own and by going to the party and not going home like she should have done. She wanted to fit in and keep those friends. They persuaded her that she would have fun.
