This dorm room also had a living room (which was the same size as the bedroom), where we each had our own little desk area for our computers and what not. The fourth roommate decided to bring her own desk even though she had another desk to use. This desk took up a lot of space that we did not have. We also had a futon, papazon chair, trunk, refrigerator, microwave, and storag... ... middle of paper ... ... life is all the memories you get to make. The late night conversations with your roommates about life and your future goals are the best.
In the short story “Everyday Use” by Alice Walker, Dee becomes angry with her mother because she won’t allow Dee to take quilts that she had already promised she would give to Maggie. I do not believe this feeling is justified one bit. The mother sent Dee to a school in Augusta for her to be happy since their house burnt to the ground, that must have been expensive; when Dee comes to visit is seems as if she has changed. Dee seems to be very unappreciative. Mama tells Dee that she has already promised Maggie they could be hers then asks “Why don’t you take one or two of the others?”(Walker160).
Truthfully, we all could use a little less television. Jessica didn't go to school, Lisa felt the children should forge their own way in life. Real life the best tutor, experience the best preparation. That could apply to an eighteen year old, but a seven year old? Lisa failed to file a home-schooling plan with local authorities, another display of her anti-conformist attitude.
In my old house my sister and I shared a room and my little sister had her own room because she was the baby. I lived with my big sister in our room for the first eight years of my life. We shared a closet, bunk- beds, a dresser, and toys. When we moved into our current house it was a huge adjustment. I had to learn to sleep without the comforting thought of Fallon underneath me, or being able to giggle and be silly until Mom or Dad came in and got angry.
You can also make pick your classes and the time that work for you in college. You can take class all time of the day and early night. In college you have to make you own schedule by sign up for your class. The last reason why college is unique from high school is that you have to for everything. You have to college to get in to college.
Her mother tried to reason with Amy but she wanted to go home, and her mother agreed and announced that they’d leave the next morning. Of course, the brothers begged to stay, but the crazy look in their sister's eyes was enough to make them agree to ending the trip

I believe that because once you receive your grades in college, no one has to know besides yourself and your professor. Her parents eventually stopped asking about her grades because, like Crucet had previously stated, they no longer had context and her parents would not understand (Crucet 4/5). I think she 's saying that regardless of what grades you make, the work you put into your assignments have a greater context that just telling your parents the specific letter grade you receive. I think she came to the conclusion that this new, fresh college experience was her own experience and that she did not have to tell anyone, not even fellow classmates what her grades were. This was new to me as well, because in the past, I always told my parents my grades and my fellow peers what my grades were.
In the reading “Who Goes to College” written by Cecilia Rodriguez Milanes I was able to see myself in her situation. When she was a senior she had no idea what she was going to do her following year, all she knew was that her parents wanted her to attend college. She always wanted to work, she liked being able to provide for herself but her parents always told her that college would come first. She had no clue of how college worked, what classes she would take or what she would do there. After all the confusion she had of what college truly is, she began to love it.
