As I’ve been reading the Grapes of Wrath, I noticed that I have started to grow a little fond of the book. The story is quite slow, but it isn’t too bad after all. On a nice Thursday morning, my teacher assigned the class what’s called the 1-pager.
It’s basically a summary of a chapter, the book, or a scene, with illustrations, quotes, and a phrase to show the readers what or why you feel is important. I chose a chapter to summarize, not of the main character literally, but of the life of an everyday person who wants a car.
I think that food ties us to our community and our traditions, and it’s the thing that makes us feel good and connected.
This, I know for sure is true. With food, you can connect with people and become closer, have a stronger relationship. Something about food just really ties things together well and makes you happy inside. At my house, we eat dinner at the table together, all four of us. Even though sometimes I feel like I’m too busy with homework and exams to eat dinner with the family, afterwards I feel better and happier. The dinner releases some of my stress and makes me take a break for studying for a while, as well as allow myself to have a daily chat with my family. As you can probably tell, my family’s pretty close. 🙂
