I feel it is my privilege to come by and say my last farewells to my father I am Biff Loman, Willy’s 34-year-old son as you know I am a football star in my high school, I loved football ever since I was a young boy even staying outside skipping homework just to practice the sport I love. My father had seen the potential I had in becoming an amazing football player so he supported me all the way through. We would even play together just me and my dad tossing the ball around before supper it was very fun and will be one of my favorite childhood memories. Willy was a great man but I have to admit hes been through some hardship and tough times and I don’t blame him, I know where he is coming from. I have said many times he is a bit of a fake but I did that because I didn’t understand at the time where he was coming from you know sometimes your dad does things that really hurt but you still love him.
Professor Morgan English 204 EA 1 November 2011 Death of a Salesman Bernard: Well, just that when he came back, I’ll never forget, it always mystifies me. Because I thought so well of Biff, even thought he’d always taken advantage of me. I loved him Willy, you know? And he came back after that month and took his sneakers, remember those sneakers with the “University of Virginia” printed on them? He was so proud of those, wore them every day.
He just thought it was exciting and cool. So as he grew up he found his two loves for football and dog fighting. He became their schools top high school quarterback, and that earned him a full scholarship to west Virgina University. His parents were very proud. But he was also depressed because he’s never been away from his siblings before and he didn’t want to leave them, but they understood and knew it was for the best.
They seem to like captain smith as he often will travel to their main village and remain for a week at a time always returning with large amounts of food. However, I have found the lifestyle here exhilarating in sense, never having the guarantee of the next day keeps me on edge but I like it. Never have I experienced freedom like this brother an entire land so unexplored and yet so close that as I dabble in the woods around camp one can’t help but feel small. I helped build my own house the feeling in living in something built with your own hands brother gives one a sense of self I cannot express in words. I do miss England and you and mother but I would suggest that you try to make it over her if your inclining for adventure is as strong as you suggest it is.

When I was in the high school, my father and I did not get along with each other. What my father told me did not make sense to me, and what I say did not seem to make sense to my father. I thought his ideas were too obsolete. The time has changed; what was true when my father was young is no longer true. However, as I attend college and live by myself, I realized he was right to some extent, and his words came out because he also cared about my future as much as I do.
For my research paper I chose to focus on Lil Wayne. I admire him because he is hard working and he has gone through a lot to achieve his American dream and he never gave up on it. Lil Wayne's American dream was to have a better life for himself and move his family out of the ghetto. He had been trying to do that since he was young and then he finally got discovered at the age of 13 by Birdman who was a well-known local producer. He took Lil Wayne to the top and even though he had to drop out of high school it was wroth it because he is now worth over 24 Million dollars.
My doubt I had in myself hampered me from feeling as though I was incapable of changing my situations. I want his belief in self to be his perserverence. Only I held myself back, through having a fixed mindset for all those years because my father did not believe in me. I wish to be the reason my son never holds back, that he will always push on and up because his mother always believed in him and told him he could and how he can not what he can't and how he will fail. I chose not to have fixed mindsets anymore.
I feel that if I believe in something so much and pray for it every day and also work at it every day, it will come true no matter how slim my chance is. Most people decide to give up when they think the little possible chance is impossible. Well, not me; if there is a will, there is a way and the reason I left my son and made the choice to play football for Wayne State is to get an education and also make it to the pro‘s.
