So, on that note, this is not another cliché story about losing my one true love, but about the time I lost myself. Long ago I found myself watching a movie I had no idea would be my inspiration. It’s about a little fish that swam away into uncharted waters, anxious to prove his individuality to his overly protective father, Marlin. On the first day of school, Nemo, a little bright orange clownfish --with an undeveloped fin-- was peer pressured into touching a big boat off the coast of Australia.

As the story progresses, the author explains that she took her father’s words to heart, the words slowly decreasing the passion and the longing to fish. The memory of her own passion allows her to form an idea of others’ passion towards it.
And there are many tricks”(Hemmingway, 3). This shows the old man acknowledging that he is not the fisherman that he once was and how he will have to rely on his experience to reel in a prize of any sizable magnitude. After a day and a half of the fish dragging the old man out to sea, it is imperative that the old man eventually reel the fish in. If he does not eventually land the fish, he lets both himself down, as well as the boy.
