Throughout the book, Simon was friendly to all of those who he encountered. In the beginning of the book, when Simon first meets Rube, Simon seemed pleased to see him. “He smiled as I stepped into the lobby, a real smile, an I liked him instantly” (Finney 8), Simon thought when he first met Ruben. Even though he was having a fairly bad day, and anything would have been better, he was pleased. He acts and feels happy to meet the project leaders as well, from Danziger to Rossoff.
The pub did well even during the beginning of the depression, but soon suffered because patrons could not pay their bills that they had run up. The family then began to work harder, as they had to lay off employees to keep running. (“Mary Higgins Clark”) When Mary was 11, she came home to find that her father had died in his sleep. This further complicated the family’s finances, as Nora was now a widow, and a mother of three young children. Nora had tried to find work, but she had been a homemaker for fourteen years, so it was had to get back into the job market.
Her parents divorced last year and her mother recently remarried. Selena lives 2 weeks out of the month with her father and his new girlfriend and the other 2 weeks with her mother, step-father, 2 older step-sisters and a younger step-brother.

However at her mother’s house she feels like an outsider.

But with Granny Weatherall memories of her life and silly father: which her father had lived to be over one hundred years old and had drunk a noggin of strong hot toddy on his last birthday.... how she worked hard all her life and took care of everybody else. (My mother was also the “Help“) Not realizing that Time itself has taken a toll on health and life (My mother was 73 when she past).
Females are seen as dependent on men to get by in life. Therefore, the fact that the title is Miss Independent shows that a different idea is going to be portrayed throughout the song. The very evident and obviously stated theme of female independence also follows the same contrast of the tittle. Though the theme contradicts the normal societal view on women the balance of ideas in this song is very one sided. Ne-Yo makes it very clear that the women he is in love with stole his heart by being herself and taking care of herself.
‘The Beauty Myth’ is an obsession with physically looking ‘perfect’ and traps the modern woman in an endless cycle of hope, self-consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to achieve what society has deemed "the flawless beauty" regardless of whether it is realistic or not. Naomi Wolf censures the exploitation of women by the fashion, beauty and advertising industries, particularly in women’s magazines as we delve deeper in to the chapter on ‘Culture’. She claims that as a result of being sequestered from the world and isolated from one another, the only real women’s space in modern mass culture where women can seek solidarity is through women’s magazines. Ironically, it is through the same myth that women are brought together and driven apart. These women may not share any particularly close relationship, but develop a sense of solidarity through sharing similar interests, agenda, or worldview.

Phenomenal Woman The poem “Phenomenal Woman” by Maya Angelou explains the different details about a woman that makes her phenomenal. Maya shows us that this woman feels great about herself regardless of what others think because of the confidence that she exudes Through the poem she tells us that nobody seems to understand what it is that makes her attractive because she is not physically beautiful by society’s standards. Women wonder at the attractiveness of the female speaker. Assuming that it is her aim, they see her "perfection," and wonder about how she attains it. When the speaker reiterates that her motive is not what they think, the women respond in disbelief, thinking that she tells, "lies".
As a college student and speaking as a member of the rest of the Pocatello theatre-attending community, I found the play very fitting and easy to understand. Although set in a different time period, some of the scenarios presented in the play were very relatable for many of the audience members. Most college students have had a roommate or two that they haven’t been too fond of or gotten along with, and seeing the same relationship played out onstage was frankly hilarious. The stage direction and blocking in the theatre in the round made this production of The Odd Couple unique and exciting. Action could be seen from all areas of the house, but there was never a time when my view was obstructed by stage furniture or other actors.
He would drink right after work and then went home drunk where he was beaten by Mary. Jimmie is a kid who likes to fight others but he also was protecting Maggie while he was still a child. Her youngest brother, Timmie, was a baby who played an extremely small part in Crane’s story because he was dead by chapter four. Mary did show Timmie some sort of love in the beginning by putting him to sleep lovingly. She did not treat her other two children as kindly as she treated Timmie.
