Another example of his anger towards “brown” people is when they lose to Julian (who is black) at the costume competition. Kevin was very angry, specifically at the fact that there were supposedly only white people cheering for them, with all “brown” people cheering for Julian. During his rant he said, in reference to “brown” people, “I’m tired of these people. I’m tired of the way they dress, the way they smell, the way they think they’re better than us, the way they aren’t grateful to live in the best country in the world. I’m just plain tired of them, and I’m tired of having to act like I should apologize for it!” (208) That rant showed how he has a lot of aggression towards those people, and that he can’t seem to look passed their race.
These are known as slumps. Everyone thinks that slumps are a thing that happens unexpectedly. But really one of the most common used sayings in the game is, “a great hitter does not believe in slumps, he finds a way and gets back on track”.

But they’re wrong. You have a bat, a ball, and you are hoping for a home run, but what is the difference? Until now, you do not know because these two sports are similar, but they are not the same. A few major differences that separate baseball from softball is pitching, bats and balls, the strategy of the game, and lastly lead offs. Even with the mixed opinions about the similarities and differences of the sports, one thing is for sure, people play the sport not just for the personal satisfaction, but because they love it.
Umpires are needed to keep the peace of the game and sometimes it still gets out of hand. Without umpires there could be a lot of cheating. A ball that is fair by inches could be called foul to help the other team. Umpires also keep the game flowing. A coach could go visit the pitcher at the mound and without an umpire telling him to hurry up who knows how long they would be at the mound.
The fact that the speaker doesn’t want to be ignored shows that they clearly want empowerment but no one seems to even acknowledge him, this is also shown through the repetition of “I” which threads themes of childishness and immaturity, showing that the character yearns and craves attention, it is quite obvious that this person’s world revolves around them where they are too ignorant to see beyond this. However, it could be argued that the voice is not solely negative because there are only empty threats mentioned with no real violence other than squashing a “fly” which is completely harmless and something we have all done.

Micah is this manly sort of man who feels that he can take care of the demon and his girlfriend. Katie becomes extremely annoyed by the antics of Micah and tries to find help in other Zhao 1 ways. Another reason why I enjoyed the actors was because they made everything seem so real. They made the sleeping, the arguments, and the existence of demons real. You also see the change in Micah, he goes from unafraid, and not disturbed by her past, to a complete 360.
We are having fun or b. We are driving each other crazy. And we’re never boring, even though I’m probably contradicting that with this speech. We’re never the people who will slide by with the C, the person who goes up to bat and gets the single. Our grade are the people who strive when they struggle, our grade would get the home run.
