  • My First Day Of 8th Grade

    I came home to unpack the night before the first day of 8th grade started. I had just spent a week with my dad before summer vacation came to an end. My mom called me downstairs to have a discussion with her and Ron, my step dad. I assumed it had something to do with Ron’s kids, Vanessa and Trey, moving in with us. But to my great surprise, they told me that they were getting a divorce and Ron would be moving out that night. Those next couple weeks were kind of a blur. My mom was calling our relatives to let them know and trying to keep our lives together. One of those conversations I had listened in on and it wasn’t until then that I learned the truth- Ron had been cheating on my mom. My mom had started to spiral between depression, then slowing into partying and man hating. It was then that I started my identity as a caregiver because without a second thought I had taken care of my mom through that time.

I didn’t have a huge variety of the food that I made (due to the fact that I was 13) so most of the time we would eat tuna sandwiches or cereal.…

  • Movie Review: Forgiveness And Compassion

    This movie was an extremely powerful movie. I am glad we watched it in class. It got me thinking about how I feel about forgiveness and compassion. One idea that I liked that was mentioned during the movie was one religion (I’m still not sure which one it is) has an idea of “40 days of grief”: if you cannot fully grieve the loss of a person after 40 days, you are impeding their soul’s journey to the next life. It is a very interesting idea, and will make me think after I have experienced a loss…
