Since Janet couldn’t make it to meetings they gave her what was “left over” and didn’t even keep her in mind. Janet was a hard worker and wanted to contribute to the group, but since she had been pre classified by her group she couldn’t fit in the way she wanted to. Life was basically a struggle for Janet and being in a group that did not consider her struggle made her feel more alone than ever. She finally snapped over the cafeteria incident. She stopped to get something to eat and saw her whole group meeting without her, she felt extremely unappreciated and knew the group members didn’t respect her contributions.
Linda Pastan view of grades No one likes to be repeatedly judged, especially their own family. In the late nineteen seventies Linda Pastan wrote two similar, but quite different, poems about being graded. The first one is Pass/Fail (1975) and the other one is Marks (1978). In both the speaker shows that she is less than pleased with the ides of continually being judged, so much so that years later she is having nightmares about failing. The images in both of these literary works show a fear of being graded and judged.

Her doctor also considered the possible latency period of the disease, wondering if that was even possible. Still befuddled, Mrs.S accepted her diagnosis and was asked to not be treated. Her doctor did prescribe
By the time Bearing is a well-known professor, it’s apparent that wit and intellect are the most important aspects of her life. During her days of lecturing, Bearing is blunt and unsympathetic. She does not teach to help her students grow in literature but to showcase her own profound knowledge of John Donne’s poetry. She comes to this realization through Jason’s unsympathetic manner of operation. After Bearing is diagnosed with cancer early in the play, she has a
Alice thinks to herself, “How could he, someone so smart, a scientist, not see what was right in front of him?” (Genova, 2007, p. 4) Alice a woman not yet diagnosed with Early-Onset Alzheimer’s questions something so small, and at the time so apparent to her, and she cannot understand why a man so smart cannot accomplish something so miniscule. After finishing this book it really strikes a chord with me because throughout the story Alice herself starts to lose track of things, things both big and small. It lets us know that we may take things that seem so natural each day for granted. As the story goes on Alice starts forgetting things. One day Alice is to give a speech at Harvard.
She was beginning to feel that maybe she was the cause of them not attending. BACKGROUND The main theme of concern for the supervisee that was coming through during the sessions each week was related to the apathy of one of her female clients, regarding attending her weekly counselling appointments, some of which she would attend, some where she would cancel at the last minute and others she would cancel when the Cruse Volunteer would contact her just before they were due to attend the session.

The client was grieving for her ex-husband who had died. She did not attend his funeral as she had re-married and her husband would not have allowed it.
She is more insightful of her surrounding than Nora Helmer. Mrs Linde expresses to Nora how she is still a “terrible spendthrift” (Ibsen, 2011, p. 556) and hasn't “learned any sense yet” (Ibsen, 2011, p 556). Mrs Linde seems to be holding back a bit of resentment for Nora who keeps rambling on about how “tremendous'”(Ibsen, 2011, p. 556) the wife of a lawyer life is; whose promotion is expecting
For example... “She was trailer trash, like so many of the people in the region, and grew up being looked down upon” (Toole, 68). Maggie’s opportunities are limited because her parents have very little to offer towards education and money, but she does not allow negativity to stop her from achieving her dream. After long, hard hours of training with Frankie, her record was 18 wins, 3 losses, with 8 knockouts, and noticed that she appeared often in the media for her continual success.

When Annabelle is in the Head’s office, she seems insensitive towards the Head and the issue. The Head sends a letter to Annabelle’s mother, where she tells about the incident, her mother just laughs – not the reaction Annabelle expected. That clearly shows that she doesn’t care about her daughter’s feelings. Annabelle doesn’t like to admit that her life has changed a lot since her parents got separated. Now she feels unsecure talking to her mother and their conversations have become a routine.
