Peter's Intro and Response

     Hi name is Peter Vaccarella.  I went to Thomas Worthington High School and am currently commuting to Marion campus.  I am hoping to transfer over to main campus after my first year here.  I played lacrosse in high school, but I don't play anymore.  I'm majoring in Computer Sciences in the College of Engineering.  I currently do not have a job, but I have saved up a lot of money from previous jobs to be able to not work during school to hopefully aid in getting good grades.

      "I feel like a child.  Defiant, but powerless.  Burning with injustice, but also with a hint of shame."  When she puts her turban up to cool off and gets yelled at right away, it's somewhat of a contradiction when she says this.  She's saying that she doesn't agree with having to cover up with the scarf and wants to argue back, but she also feels a little bit of shame.  She hates having to abide by traditions but she also realizes that it is the right thing for her to do.


  1. I wish I had the money saved to not work and go to school at the same time, it would give me a lot more free time. I'm envious of that. I wanted to do computer sciences but i decided I liked the applications of mechanical engineering too much to pass it up. I would agree with what you are saying about her essay.

  2. I also played lax in high school, I was thinking of doing some club lax at main next year but still not sure yet. I agree with your thoughts on the story too.

  3. I completely agree with your last sentence. I've seen a lot of people in that same situation also.

  4. It does kind of suck for her to have to deal with the such conflicting interests. Trying to put myself in her situation is hard to do. I would be annoyed if I was told to wear a uniform just during my regular life, but I would have to accept that it is what my family has done for generations, and I should be able to stick it out.
