My mom’s name is Nancy, and my dad’s name is Jim. She told me how they met in college and she got pregnant with me young. Sharon told me that Nancy and Jay were not financially prepared for a child, and they did not want to put me in a foster home. They thought adoption would put me with a loving family that I deserve. Also, Sharon had told me that during the adoption process the birth parents nor the adopted parents are allowed to know the other’s last name for security reasons.
Personal Philosophy Paper Yvette Thompson NURS 502 May 27, 2013 Nursing Defined My philosophy of Nursing was created early in life. I was motivated by the uniform that my grandmother wore on a daily basis. At the age of 10 I began to inquire about the meaning of the cap and why the uniform had to be white and pressed so hard. Grandma Lillian, at that time, stated that to be a nurse you have to follow certain guidelines and have a love for taking care of all types of people. She also encouraged me to start early taking care of my dolls and to start reading easy books about medical issues.
–Which she was implying that there was not enough room for anyone else in their apartment. Later on in Scene 2 of Act 1, Mama finally gets the news out to Walter that Ruth is pregnant since Walter would not let Ruth tell him herself. This is when the first mention of abortion comes up in the play. Mama says to Walter “…I think Ruth is thinking ‘bout getting rid of that child.” Walter then argues with her saying, “No-No-
The one book that stood out to me was the book my mom use to read to me. All I could think of was to read more new books with my mom. I was so excited to begin to learn. Every day I remember coming home and telling my parents all the amazing stories I listen to in class. Even thou at the time I didn’t know they were called Nursery Rhymes until I began learning more about it in my school.
In Portia, Edith Gelles analyzes Abigail Adams' personal letters with family members, friends, and historical figures. It is through these letters that we learn what motivated Abigail and, more importantly, her significance in American history. Few women of the 18th century were fortunate enough to have the access Abigail and her sisters had. Her father, a Puritan minister, allowed her to read freely from his library during her education. This was crucial, because Abigail developed an understanding of western thought and ideals which she used throughout her correspondence.
Week 5 Assignment 1 Discussion Question 2 “The Awakening” By Kate Chopin Eng1002 Dr. Becky By Chris Bates “The Awakening” by Kate Chopin was set around the main character Edna Pontellier. I’ve chosen to write about her varying behaviors. The way she acted throughout the novel was centered around her as a wife and as a mother. Yes she “lacked” in these areas, but I am going to focus on her as an individual and how it affected her varying roles. When the story went back and told how her and her husband met and came to marry it told an awful lot about who Edna was.
The Book Thief: Character Analysis I chose the main character Leisel Meminger in "The Book Thief" because she made so many changes throughout the story and I found her very interesting. This story was a biography that she wrote about herself. Her biography was picked up by Death who had it published after her death. In the story, Leisel is the main character who we hear about from the time she rode on the train with her mom and brother to adulthood. Leisel had many wonderful traits but also some bad traits too.
For instance, she was expecting a check from the insurance company for the death of her husband. She already knew how she intended to spend the money. The plan was to put away some of that for her daughter Beneatha, for school; she emphasized that a bit in the story. Mama’s words were, “Some of it got to be put away for Beneatha and her schoolin’-and aint nothing going to touch that part.” She then went on to say that she was going to purchase a house not just for her, but for the entire family to live in. Then when Ruth found out that she was pregnant, Mama thought of the things that she could buy if it was a girl or boy, she even thought about the size of the yard for the grandchildren to play in.
“ Seventeen year old women should be able to buy the morning after pill without a prescription within a few weeks, a government spokesman said Thursday.” (“FDA”,1). They wouldn’t sell you the pill without a subscription, so imagine if they wouldn’t get a held of the doctor, then it would be to late. Even if you had unprotected sex and you didn’t want to be pregnant you should be able to get a held of that pill. You never know what kind of accidents might happened if you don’t have protected sex. Its just good to know that there is a pill to save you three days after you had sex, and didn’t use a condom.
I had to read it now, so I told myself to just do it and get it done, but I had to go get the book first. My mother took me to a store called Barnes and Noble to look for the book. This was actually the first time I had stepped foot into this store. I was so amazed by everything I saw. I walked around the store and just like that my perspective of reading changed a lot.
