    It is quiet. My father and brother are out of the house. They are doing their “Father-son” bonding time. I sit on the couch, watching a show. It is mindless a drama show where people fight for no reason. It is nice to let go every now and then, forgetting all the strife in life. “What is this?” my mother asks me. She is holding up my report card. I sigh, “My report card.” I know what is coming next. I pick up the remote and turn off the television. I prepare myself for her anger. “I meant…

    II I hold Nicholas’ sleeping form in my arms as I walk out the house. Carefully, I place him in the backseat of my car where his child seat takes up residence, a child seat I would soon need to get rid of. A few months, almost four, have passed since my parents’ death.

I still had to consistently deal with the consequences of her actions. Learning to bounce back was easy for me, until I had to be more…

  • Ivan Golovin Book Report

    In my opinion, I felt that the view of Ivan IIych Golovin did change because the picture perfect life he thought he ensured was never perfect to begin with causing him to become oblivious to it. He was just an average man with a middle-class job, but for him life was picture-perfect. What Ivan failed to realize is he wasn’t any special than other middle class men in his time period. Life was good until it took an unexpected turn when an unforeseen illness consumed his life, changing his…
