Philip returned to the sixth session reporting that his dad said they could go to Disneyworld another time, but continued to express disappointment that he was still in Cambridge. As he vented about how talking to a therapist wasn’t going to solve his problems, he mentioned something significant, “I say ‘I don’t care’ because I don’t want to get upset… but things just keep getting harder.” Philip completed an assignment, to write a list of problems that “I don’t care” doesn’t help with, and spent the majority of the seventh session organizing and sorting through his thoughts. Philip grouped his issues into four main categories and prioritized them with the therapist: (1) bullying at school, (2) don’t know how to help mom, (3) Diego, (4) missing “home.” |What Happened |What I |Was it Helpful? | | |Said/Felt/Thought | | |Tony walked by me, |Said: “Whatever.” |No. I felt bad and it | |laughed at my hair.
I needed a hobby other than sitting around crying about everything, so my mom made the suggestion I shut up and read a book. This book was there in wal-mart on the shelf, so without reading the back cover, I picked it up and tossed it in the cart. I figured it couldn’t be too bad Oprah recommends it in her book club, why not if Oprah read and liked it then maybe I would too. So began me reading the novel The Rapture of Canaan. I.
Literary Analysis of “The Storm” In the short story “The Storm” by Kate Chopin, the author presents an old-fashion version of a scandal. The story takes place during the late nineteenth century in Louisiana where the two main characters, Calixta and Alcee, have a once in a life time opportunity to rekindle an old flame that has been burning for years between them. Chopin uses different themes, symbols and ironies that represent the characters and her views on marriage and passion. Chopin did a magnificent job of bringing the characters to life by using symbolism in a way you couldn’t imagine. This brings the story to life and makes you think about her views on marriage and sexuality in a passionate way.
In chapter 4 Bruno and his older sister Gretel make an unusual discovery when they look outside Bruno’s bedroom window. John Boyne keeps us from knowing what is on the other side of the fence until we get further into the book. All the information given in the chapter is about the people is that they are wearing a pair of striped of grey striped pyjamas and a grey striped cloth cap and looking unhappy, some with bandages around their heads and others on crutches. Later on in chapter 5 some of Bruno’s innocence and nieveity is shown when he is talking to his father in his office. When he misunderstands what his father meant by ‘the fury has big things in mind for him’ Bruno thinks this means that his father is in trouble with the fury so he asks his father.
He took on another work load to be with her and seems like he would do more if he had to. Later on in the story on Lenas' 17th birthday, Voclav asks Rasia, his mother, about the night she reported what was happening to Lena to the police, she replied back with a stern no and Voclav goes to his room to think about Lena and how she is doing. Voclav "feels indulgence to lie down on the bed and to think of Lena" showing that for him to lie down on his bed and to think about Lena is a good and soothing to his mind (Tanner 148). This also shows that Voclavs' love for Lena wasn't something lost to time and easily forgotten after CPS took her away from Trina. For Voclav having Lena as his assistant was a passion and he continued on doing magic I believe to keep the memory of Lena in his mind.
I feel that he should have referred him to another therapist instead of thinking about himself. Dr. Marvin also had an increase willingness to push the sale of his book Baby Steps for the sale of his book and maybe in hopes that it would help Bob Wiley just until he returned from his month long vacation. I believe that Dr. Marvin was thinking of himself and his television interview over the care of a patient. Betty, the switchboard operator, had an ethical dilemma when Bob repeatedly asked for a connection to Dr. Marvin. She knew that it was not permitted to do so and that all of Dr. Marvin’s calls where to be given to another Dr., but instead she sent the call through.
He is not excited to receive the Sacrament but the collection, so he can go see James Cagney at the local theater. He receives First Communion but his grandma won’t let him get his collection until he has had his First Communion breakfast. He ends up throwing his breakfast up along with the host from his Communion. Now his grandma wants him to ask the priest how to clean it up in confession. This is one of the more comical parts of the chapter.
Lee lived in Alabama as a child in a town called Monroeville, her father was also a lawyer with this in mind I helps the reader to view the novel as realistic. Throughout the prose Lee presents that Jem’s moods and emotions change and fluctuate “Jem stayed moody and silent for a week.. So I left Jem alone and tried not to bother him.” This quotation presents Jem as temperamental. In addition Lee highlights Scout as mature and polite as she respects Jem’s privacy and sees it right to leave him as it will cause them to argue. Lee uses this lexis so Scout and the reader can reflect on how bored Scout was and how much she needs Jem in her daily life.
