Erik Fisher Football Dream Update
Paul and Erik Fisher are very different in their personalities, and in their strengths and weaknesses, but they can also be very alike. In the story, Erik and Paul have different sports to do, in which Erik plays football and very easily joins the football team for their high school team. Unlike Erik, Paul does soccer everyday, but these two are similar since they both love and cherish their sport every time they go to practice. Also, Erik fits in easily and is actually the one kid who everyone wants to be, while Paul Fisher struggles with this, according to his eyesight problems. The boys are alike though since they both try to fit in with their peers and successfully do this- from Erik joining the football team while Paul joins the soccer team and meets Joey Costello. More or less, these two young adolescents both enjoy different things, since Erik enjoys football and popularity, and unlike Erik, Paul enjoys soccer, knowledge, and does not enjoy standing out, but they both enjoy their personalities and like their characteristics. Overall, Erik and Paul Fisher are unlike in many ways, but they are also brothers.
In Tangerine, Mike Costello was a close companion to Erik Fisher and his football dream, but a tragedy occured at football practice one day in Lake Windsor Downs. It all started of course, at the Lake Windsor Downs football practice field. To Erik and Mike, it was just any other practice, kicking field goals and running close plays from Coach Warner. That day, though, there was a very bad storm rolling over the field, but the practice was still going. Just when Mike was running a play, the lightning zapped Mike and blew him off the ground, like a rocket launch to space. After the strike, Erik and the Lake Windsor team tried everything they could to save Mike, but it was too late. They pushed, zapped, and did anything to save their lost quarterback. When Erik returned to the Fishers' house, he told his mom and Paul all about it, and they couldn't believe this shocking blow. Overall, Mike Costello was a big part of the story Tangerine, and we would have to cope with his loss.
MOYA Close Up
"MOYA" is the month of Young Adolescents, which describes the characteristics and personalities of young adults. Today, some MOYA issues include breaking friendships, and this occurs from anybody being to "dramatic" in everyday life, and because of this, relationships are broken from kids being treated differently from gossip and news. Also, teens today experience anxiety from going to a kid to a young adults. They try to perfect their talents and break down when something occurs that ruins their reputation. For example, the article "More and More Teens Suffer from Anxiety" describes how a young adult breaks down mentally from getting a bad grade, which she thought was a shocking blow. Another way teens can have issues in their lives is when they have peer pressure, and their strive to do well in everything they do. Teens and young adults get very affected by this since when friends and siblings put pressure on them, they become mentally ill and try to be perfect, leading to a disrupted failure in the things that they do. Overall, "MOYA" plays a big part in young adults' lives, and can change the way young men and women shape the world.
