My house is not old. In fact it was only built a few years ago. It just has an old soul. Its post are dark and have an aged look. The dim windows are like eyes. They look out on the quiet gray street that momentarily have a different car pass through it. The grass is not green, but yellow. Its thin tree has no leaves and is sad. My house is tired because it endures the loudest and biggest family on the block.
Through my eyes my house is not only a shelter but a sanctuary for love, peace, and creativity. It holds everything that could possibly make me happy. I love my home because it's mellow appearance is welcoming .
My personal vignettes show the shaping of my identity completely over the years of my life. They go over topics that I really value and cherish. These topics make a difference in my life because they are the foundation of how I think, act, and view the world.
Some of the issues that Esperanza faces are relatable and visible in my life. Esperanza faces a lot of doubt from her society and i feel that too. Not for the same reason though. Esperanza is doubted from society because she is a migrant and lives in a poor neighborhood. I feel doubted sometimes because I think that older people in the world don't take children serious enough. Many people my age have great ideas and if society isn't taking them seriously those ideas will die. But I really enjoyed the book because Esperanza was very easy to relate to.
I felt a lot of coming of age recently and my Vignettes reflect that. You can see that as i grow older i'm gaining new feeling for different topics. One of those is how i view my father now. He's really made an impact on my life. Just in another way compared to if I was still 5 or 7.
