His father, however, is the man on the moon and although he’ll be back, he’ll leave again. In the beginning of the song the boy looks lovingly at his absent father. Every letdown, the boy smiles to himself and says, “I'm gonna be like him, yeah. You know I’m gonna be like him.” Later on we see the boy grow into a teenager, and instead of aspiring to be like his father he has already started to grow into a young version of his dad.

Running head: Adolescence Observation Paper Adolescence Observation – My Little Brother Devon October 1, 2008 Danielle Cooper For this paper, I chose to observe my little brother Devon, who is fourteen years old and just started high school last week. I do not live at home anymore so I went there for dinner and to hang out with him and my dad and to observe him. I did not want to tell him what I was doing to make sure that he was behaving naturally, but after he said hi to me he wanted to go upstairs to his bedroom and talk to his friends on the computer. I asked him to bring his laptop downstairs and to visit with me while he did that. Very quickly it became obvious to me that his friends were basically the most important thing in his life.
Moving Away From Home Surely, time does fly awfully fast. I can remember when I was still in elementary; drinking orange juice and cookies, playing at recess, bringing my toys in for show and tell, making arts and crafts to take home to my parents, and more. Then, suddenly I realized the moment I’ve been waiting for has arrived. All the pain, agony, struggling, and time I’ve wasted away in my life are about to pay off. It was the beginning of my college life.
I don’t exactly remember much after that, but I do remember being rescued from the car. I remember the hot pinpricks of pain, as the broken glass was embedded into my body while I was being dragged out of the car. The date was November sixth, 2009. I was sixteen years old. I woke up to my brother Maltin yelling at me to get up because it was his birthday and we had plans all that day.
I didn`t get much sleep the night before but I woke up feeling totally relaxed. I ate with my father and my brother and then I started my preparation for the big day. My brother gave me a hair cute I was looking and feeling good at that time. Around nine am, the boys came to my house to pick me up, that was church time we drove to the church on the way I started feeling a little nervous till we got to the church lot of people were just waiting for the time to come, when I got into church I still nervous but my best man assured me that I look good and everything was going to be fine, he kept telling to take deep breath at that time we were all standing up inside the church, then I saw my father in low with the bride walking in and everyone was looking at them, the bride was looking so beautiful, at that moment I stared smiling and feeling good about all these. While the Ceremony was taking place, I wasn`t focusing on what going on I was just looking at my wife to be in less the hour.
