Cool? Identity, Drugs & Fitting In
~My First Thoughts~
What does it mean to be 'cool'?
They think its to be normal and healthy to go to places and not be stared at funny.
How important is it to be cool?
They think it doesn't matter because they don't even go to school. and it's not important to them anymore because now all they care about is to be together.
What does it mean to fit in and why is it so important?
They want to fit in because they don't like standing out from everyone else and being looked at funny. They think it would be important because then they wouldn't have to be so different from everyone else but they may not have met each other so it couldn't have been to important to them.
What's the advantage of being around who have similar outlooks and interests?
The advantage for them is that they both have cancer and they get each other and wouldn't think one another is different or weird.
Why do you think young people use drugs/alcohol?
They don't know why people do them but Gus uses them to show how things that kill others wont kill him and that he is a fighter.
