She earns $122,000 per year. She loves her work (especially managing the buying, marketing, and personnel) but has wanted to have her own bookstore since she was a young girl. She even has a name picked out – Corner Bookstore. Unfortunately, she has little money to invest in a business. She is a single mom with two small children and does not think she can afford to invest any of her $25,000 in savings into such a business.
I was sixteen when I got pregnant. I moved in with my boyfriend and later got married. I didn’t worked through my pregnancy but after the nine months, my husband couldn’t pay the bill any longer so I had to go back to work. I applied in different restaurants and I finally herd back from a Native American Restaurant. I wasn’t happy with my life, but that is the life I chose.
When we arrived, I did not speak any English. The hardest part was that I had to register for high school the following week. I did not know how to communicate with staff and students in school. It was really frustrating when I could not understand what my teachers were saying. It took me twice the time to read an assignment or to do homework than my classmates took.
While I was in school, I was working two jobs that were both very time consuming. I worked both nights and weekends and it was more than one student could handle at a time or would want to handle. Working all the time in school left little time to work on school assignments and study time. After working long hours I spent my time sleeping instead of doing homework, and this led to my lack of experience in writing and reading. I would fall asleep in class because I was so tired.
Kate Chopin in The Awakening shows significance of Edna’s suicide by having her death location at the same place as her awakening. Chopin writes the ending so ambiguous to highlight the fact that Edna drowns herself. Edna’s suicide results are attempts of her trying to choose the type of female that she wants to be in the society that she is in, which this leads to her defeat of her life to the sea. I feel that Edna finally surrenders herself to the sea. This would have been out of her frustration and pathetic state of her being.
Tim O’Connor Family Interview My Mother My mother has been one of the hardest working women that I have ever known in my life so I decided to sit down and have an interview with her. See how she got there, why she chose to take the jobs she did. I learned a very interesting thing talking to her. Her first job was at Social Security as soon as she got out of High School. At this time you did not need a college degree to work in this industry and she got the job after her first interview.
What he meant; the private troubles must be examined in the context of the social issues. In our days people feel like they are bounded by society where they seem to be trapped by social norms of this society. They can only overcome their troubles if they can see the connection between their life and the society’s history, and the norms and structures were created by this history. To be able to understand the connection the history of the society and the complexity of their lives have to be understood both. The conflicts and troubles that the
It seems many people had lost their jobs during the last 6 years, which created less jobs. So many jobs opportunity had been cut of; it was one of the biggest problems we had, because it is very difficult to find a stable job out here in California. During the last year on December, I’ve been searching around for the best job I can find as possible, but the jobs available were mostly at the fast food restaurants, and very low wages. So if we were not being able to find a better job, surely she cannot afford to pay her bills and also for her school as well. Secondly, because of school fees for a non-California residency is way more expensive.
Online classes required self determination and a lot time. This is definitely not what I had in mind! Procrastination and grades don’t mix well and the outcome has many consequences. Happiness is hard to achieve when you are always in a rush to finish a task that was supposed to be done weeks or even months before hand. For example I waited all summer to sign up for fall classes and as a result I got stuck with most classes that other students didn’t want to take.
Who decides what is beautiful and what is not. I feel that the media has a lot to do with how women, in the United States anyway. With all the magazines showing thin, almost anorexic women on magazine covers young women feel that that is what they should look like. So then these young women starve themselves and/or binge and purge themselves. Some even die because of trying to fix a certain mold of what is beautiful.
