My First Blog
Hello! My name is Danielle. This is only my second semester here at OSUM. My major is Psychology. This is my first college writing class, so I am pretty new to all of this. And, I have never done a blog before. I graduated from River Valley High School in 1993 and have never had any college classes before this year. Before this, I was a stay at home mother of 5 kids. My husband and I were married for 22 years and in May of 2016, he died in a semi truck accident. This of course change my whole life. I needed to do some serious rethinking and that is how I ended up making the decision to come back to school.
The House on Mango Street is a very powerful look at how war effects people and how it changes their life and way of thinking. I have really enjoyed reading this book so far, it has made me think hard about the side effects of war. I can't wait to continue learning more from reading this book.
