Jimmy didn’t want to be there no longer and kept on running away until his Aunt Charlotte signed him over to a detention center because no one wanted to take him and care for him. He registered and went to high school and eventually dropped out because he didn’t feel accepted in the type of environment. He got into a relationship with a young girl name Teresa. That was his first love and it was a very dysfunctional relationship. He had left to San Diego to start a new life and meet Marcos, His best friend, and Lonnie.
I had to go on independent study because I was bedridden. I started getting really sick again so I went to the hospital and by the middle of April they said they would have to take her. I was scared. I didn’t know if she would live or not. She was born April 21, 1993 weighing only three pounds fourteen ounces and was sixteen and a half inches long.
(1. 260-267) This is saying that if Odysseus were there at the time he would have kicked all of the suitors out of his house. At first Telemachus blames the suitor’s presence on the fact that his dad is fighting the war instead of taking action himself and getting rid of the suitors. The suitors are portrayed as bad people in the Odyssey because even though their hosts are following the rules Xenia the suitors just keep taking and taking from them. We also know that Penelope doesn’t want the suitor in the house any more that Telemachus does because she stalled them for six years when she wove and unwove the quilt.
After the incident of him trying to burn down the barn, his family decided to send him to a mental institution. “It was either send him to Jackson, or have Gillespie sue us….” (Faulkner 232). The family had no choice but to send Darl away because he began to show a different side to him and started having split personalities. Darl’s name may have meant to be short for darling, but through his actions, he did not represent someone who was a
Eventually, I landed in a hospital bed with an IV pumping a cocktail of drugs meant to cure "a series of infections" ravaging my body. When I finally felt reasonable enough to go to class, I couldn't remember things. My essays, as one professor told me, suddenly "read like ramblings." I wasn't me. That semester, I ended up taking incompletes in all of my classes.
I went to play with my friends, but they were mean to me. I walked into the coat room and hid behind a big puffy coat until I heard my teacher yell that recess was over. When I got home I went straight to my room and began to cry. I didn’t want to tell my parents I was retarded. I didn’t want them to know.
We spoke to my grandmother for hours, we’ve asked her so many questions such as: have you ever been sick to the point you were hospitalized? She said “sick to the point I need to be hospitalized? No, I had some bad fevers as a young girl but never so sick.” Have you ever had a dramatic injury? she said “yea, I once fell of a bike full speed and fractured a bone.” Are you feeling any different from now, then 20 year earlier? She said, “yes, I feel so much wiser but physically?
He watched as I left and almost immediately, like the flip of a switch, was overcome with fear. His year started out with problems stemming from this fear, including being suspended from school and having failing grades. The emotions that he was having due to war had become his existence. We had no ideal just how bad that this would get. My wife would send me emails stating that Rex was not well.
When I returned home a week later I found out that my supposed best friend was dating my supposed boyfriend. I felt so betrayed that I avoid her as much I could until one day I could not hold back. Let me tell you I went at her like a dog chasing a ball. We started to yell at each other and saying the rudest meanest things we could think of at the time, everyone that heard would have never thought we were such close friends before. After that day we did not speak for about a month and during the month of not talking we would spread rumors about one another to try and hurt the other person.
In the movie the mother would cook dinner and invite everyone over to eat to try and get some kind of peace. Like the mother in the movie my grandmother raised a grandchild like it was her own child. Of course in this case I’m the grandchild that my grandmother helped raised. In the movie there was always that one family member that thought they were better that the rest of the family. Well yes I have one of them in my family.
