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 .
