The only people I ever felt comfortable talking to was classmates that I already knew from elementary or outside of school. I always felt that I would never make friends for being the way I was, but somehow I made friends along the way. Other than being soft-spoken, I’ve also been a very distant and independent person.

Tennessee Williams’ play A Streetcar Named Desire delves in the life of Blanche Dubois; a life put on hold when she gets sent to an insane asylum. At the young age of 30, she had experienced tremendous loss, undesirable jobs, and sexual assault. While these are rough things to deal with, her incarceration was not intended to help her deal with her problem, but rather hide a problem.

If the Kowalskis, (Stella more than Stanley) accepted reality for what it is instead of trying to morph it to fit into their world Blanche’s life would be different.

This caused all of her blocked out thoughts to swarm her mind and turn her completely insane.
