She was everything any teenage girl dreamt of being; tall, blond and beautiful. The kind of girl you would see posing for a cover of a magazine. Captain of the high school cheerleading squad and sat with the popular kids in the cafeteria. She was portrayed exactly how the first daughter should be and this was how she was to be seen through the eyes of the public.
Sitting slumped in the corner of the couch with her shiny hair tied into a messy bun and the glossed pages of a magazine pushed up against her face waiting for her brother to return from the supermarket. Tom and Casey had gone on their fifth honey moon. Being president kept Tom at the office nearly all the time and when he wasn’t at the office, he was with Casey; the 25 year old step mother. The press loved their exposure so, as usual, the house was left to the children.
The cold breeze gushed in from the window next to her as she stretched as far as she could, without actually getting up, to close it. It usually snowed this time in Manhattan so it gave her the excuse to wear long pants and hide the scars on her legs. She stared down upon the white flesh still visible from the deep wounds; the rugged look reminded her of the demons she preferred to keep hidden. Just at the sight she felt discomfort so she covered up and preferred not to think about it.
Looking up gloomily at the cloudy sky, caught in the moment, she began to think of him again. Just the thought of him would spread a smile upon her face. Sudden warmth filled her heart and her stomach turned weak. She recalled their first encounter; at the bakery. He spent most of his time there. On her walks home from school she often glanced through the thick glass door just to catch sight of him. Just to refresh the image of him in her reckless mind. The number of times she thought of shoving the doors open and making him hers was unbelievable. She was hung up on him. His dark brown skin, thick in texture and so smooth, the desire

    Everyone wants to be something when they grow up. Not everyone gets the chance to be what they want to be. Not everyone is provided with an opportunity. I am lucky that I was given one and now I have to do my part by taking advantage of it. I know what I want to be and I’m certain that I want to be a successful computer science major. The moment I knew what I wanted to study in college was when my cousin Jonathan moved in with me and my family. I was eleven years old when Jonathan moved in…

    The narrator in Girl was pretty nonexistent. The words are from her mom and it seems more like she's recalling things from her past so she's telling the story but she's not because there's not exactly anything going on other than her telling all of the advice that her mother had given her. In Orientation there was so much emotion, not only is there humor but there's sadness too by talking about a mans lonely life and woman wanting to be desired. He shows when his characters are happy or when they…

    What do you want to be when you grow up? What are your plans for your future? Have you thought about college? Have you thought about a career choice? These are questions we are bombarded with on a daily basis by our parents. We shrug them off, telling them that we have another three years to think about college, careers, or our future. We don't know what we want to be when we grow up, because we don't even know who we are yet. Yet in a blink of an eye, we're seniors and now the decisions we tried…
