Another instance is when she asks her mother for the quilts her grandmother had made, her mother said they were for Maggie; Dee's reply was, “Maggie wouldn't appreciate the quilts” and Maggie says, “Dee can have them” (Walker 2441). Furthermore, all of the things Dee ask for she wants to use them for decoration and not for everyday use. Dee also was not educated about her heritage. For instance, her mother called her “Dee” and in return she replied saying her new name was Wangero, followed by the statement, “Dee is dead and I can no longer bear the name of the people that oppress me” (Walker 2440). I believe there was no time during the story that she was oppressed or even mentioned
Also towards the end of the story in, The Grimm Brother’s Version, the two white pigeons attack the two stepsisters and pecked out each of their eyes. [Cinderella wanted to go the ball, but her stepmother gave her a huge list of chores to complete first.] This is why the animals make her a dress because she has no time to fix up the one that she wanted to wear, in Disney’s “Cinderella”. They also are turned into her horses, and the chauffeurs of her carriage, by the Fairy Godmother. These differences were made because the point of Disney’s version was for children to watch and enjoy it, compared to the Grimm Brother’s version which was just to spark interest into myths while placing cruel elements into the story of Cinderella.

I had a toy that I loved a lot; it was a doll my great grandmother gave to me.
My plan succeed. When we’re back to my house I immediately hid the key while she was having a look around my house to avoid her to escape. When Lucy was looking at my father’s picture, I said he went to war for a really long time, I was surprised when she said her father went to a war too. I offered her a cup of tea and sat with her next to the fire. Lucy started telling me that she likes winter because she can play snow ball fights, ice-skating and also Christmas, she loves receiving so many presents.

When they are first mentioned it is because of something small and meaningless: a corn-less cob she found at the edge of her garden. She continues to blame these “spirits” for haunting her and letting themselves be found in everything she sees. A little further into the fifth paragraph we find what these spirits actually mean, “…to help her remember everything she saw. Things she noticed, thoughts she wanted to store in her head… The pattern of frost growing on the windows. How it covered the glass like ancient cave markings or the scribbling of a child.
Noelle Stewart PSY 252 Shawn Burn January 30, 2012 Social Psych Self-Assessment #1: Option 2 Experience with Cognitive Dissonance Running is a passion of mine that was suddenly interrupted when I was only seventeen. I loved the feeling of escaping everyday realties, running alone on trails and finding new routes that nobody knew I was on.

After school one day in late October, as I was tying my shoes and getting ready for my run, my mom came into my room with a worried look on her face. She told me that last week there was an unidentified man hiding in the bushes
