    Many of us have the luxury of living in a home or even an apartment that we can afford, but others do not have that fortitude that we take for granted. Now with the prices going up, the landlords have also decided to bump up the prices for rent. It is easy for some to just say “These people should just get a job, maybe then they will be able to afford housing.” In reality, that is not the case, the cost of living and the wages that families and individuals get paid are not in agreement and it is even more difficult when these families are being paid minimum wage. Rent is getting more expensive, which makes it more difficult for families and individuals to make ends meet. Not being able to pay housing is affecting many people everywhere from countries to states to even our city today and leaving them hopeless. In this paper, I will explore the resources that are available here in Fresno County where our residents can go to get help with housing and shelter. According to Fresno Housing, “Public housing is housing that is built, operated, and owned by a government agency, and provides units at lower-than-market rate rents to qualified low-income individuals and families.” There are many reasons why we should care about families and individuals find affordable housing and shelter. They are families and individuals that at no fault of their own were put in the situation in which they can not get out of and we should be there to support them through these harsh times instead of…

    I’ve passed by the Reedley Opera House millions of times, have always wondered what it looked like inside… Now I’d really get the chance! In only a few weeks there was auditions for the characters, and when I arrived I was nervous. There were plenty of girls, trying out for the orphans of course, and they all seemed so confident! About five I passed by had said they’d been in many plays here! I tensed. The audition involved singing and then it involved a few lines, and I hoped that my acting and…

    I went and saw the author Charles Baxter at the Reedley College the other day, it was the first time I had ever attended anything like that before, like sat in while an author read a few paragraphs from his book. It was very interesting being able to hear pieces of a book knowing we could ask question to the man who wrote the book himself. The room was filled with people, so many people that they had to bring in chairs, people were even sitting on the stairs, and in the front on the floor. The…

    McDormand did an amazing job playing not just one role but two very important roles in the play which were Lady Macbeth and the main witch. The usage of language was still the same as the one we've read on the book, but when acted it is much more easier to understand. This experience of attending UC Berkeley and a play like Macbeth with two very well known actors was definitely a once of a life time experience. Never did I think that I would get the opportunity like this one on Thursday. Before…
