Symbolism means the applied use of symbols: iconic representations that carry particular conventional meanings. In this book of mice and men all the main charters can symbol something and in this essay I will who and what they symbolize to.

First Candy. Candy has several terms of symbolism, for example his disability is a symbol of the migrant workers who are just literally forgotten about, they are forgotten when they are no use to the owners. Candy’s dog is a symbol of a life only for advantage to others Lennie also for shadows this, he is belittled of his mind but enormously commented for his strength. Also he is forced to lie about the fight he had with Curley, this is a symbol of typical male society in the, “Depression era”. Crook has many symbolical items, his disability is a symbol of his loneliness .Curley and Curley’s wife both represent evil both keep down and abuse the migrant workers. Curley especially harasses Lennie because of Lennie’s strength and how enormous he is. This is a symbol of cat and mouse.

In this essay I hope you learned as mush as I did from the following charters in the book such as Candy, Candys dog, Curley, Crook, Curley’s wife, Lennie .

My reflection on service learning

We are so happy this whole thing was a success so from my group and my self we thank you for participating and im sure the sick kids at C.H.O.P. thank you all to. What I learned for this whole experience is that when you give you will feel good about your self in the end so KEEP ON GIVING!!!!!!!!!!

The motives in the book Mice of Men

Motive means a reason for doing something. Therefore, everyone has a motive unless you are a newborn baby but they have a motive grow-up and be all they can be. In this book Mice of Men each main charter had a motive, and in the essay I will explain what there motive were and what actions they used to try to achieve there motive.

First charter in the book that had a motive was George. George had a motive to raise enough money to buy ancers of land. With that land, they were going to put a farm. George knew that money was not going to grow on trees or fall from the sky. He knew he had to find work to achieve his motive. Therefore, he went to look for work and found a ranch near Soledad, California. All awhile he was not alone .He had a partner.

Which brings me to Lennie .Yah! Lennie had a learning disability and was a little crazy but that did not stop him he knew what his motives where and know how to achieve them .So he work on the ranch with George. Lennies motive was to tend the animals on the farm because he love to pet soft things and he love animals. Coming from someone with his problems you’ll probly think that he wanted the world but no he just wanted to tend some rabbits mainly rabbits at the farm he and George worked so hard and were so eager to get.

Moving on to another charter that seem like she had a motive was very flirtatious and the only women in this book. She goes by the name Curly’s wife. Her motive was to become and actor and get affection from her husband by doing so she often flirted with the works on the farm to make her husband jealous she also would run away to leave curly curious to know where she was and anger that she was gone.

The last charter that had a motive is Cruly. His motive was to become a pro boxer. To accomplish that he often picked on men way bigger a stronger than he was. I guess in the book he had a lesson learn and that was that there is some one always bigger better and smarter than you are.

To sum it all up all the everyone has a motive wither it is owning land like George; tending animals like Lennie; getting affection from mate like Curlys wife or a pro boxer like curly.

Reflection on Service learning

My service learning experience last week was full of fun and more and more ideas to care for the sick kids at chop just as I predicted last week was a ball! We came up with ideas to buy things one the wish list of the children at chop .We came up with doing a fund raiser .The fund raiser consists of selling water ice, ice cream and all the things young adults like me enjoy. So we can help infants and toddlers and young adults that are in need enjoy things that they want and wish for .

my reflection on Service Learning last week

My reflection on last weeks Service learning was it was fun and I felt good knowing that I was going to be helping out kids I need and I am really happy that I picked that group to work in. Last week we talked about what kind of kids we were going to help out and we watched a video and read a letter from one of the kids that attend the hospital CHOP. It was sad and emotional .i hope this week is as Interesting and fun as last week.

NHD reflection

My NHD project I did for this year’s topic, which was Conflict, and Compromise is Misogyny or Myth women in hip-hop. I also did something really surprising I worked with a partner I usually don’t work with anyone cause I am so use to working by my self but it actually turned out to be a good experience. Yes, we disagreed on some thing we had a couple clashes, but we always still got are work done in a way we both agreed on. While doing this project we did things we never imagine doing and meeting people, we never imagine meeting. We did things like interviewed classmates Juju, Christa, Amie, and teacher/Band member Mr. Todd and underground rapper Chief Honcho. In theses interviews we asked a verity of questions and one of the big ones was "what does hip-hop mean to you?" Over all are project was good and done to the best of are ability.

Native Son: Chapter 3 Summary

If only, if only....

Bigger and Gus were imagining what it would be like if they were able to fly an air plane. They imagine flying in the sky and escaping their troubles and fears. They soon realize that what they imagined is only a dream. They realize that they can't fly a plan because of the simple fact that they're black
