Journal Two from Dallas Finley

Hello class this is Dallas Finley. I am originally from Monroe, Ohio a small town about an hour north of Cincinnati. I enlisted into the United States Army at 17 as a Military Police Officer. I spent most of my 5-year career at Fort Bliss, TX. I am 23 and am happily married to my wife of 3 years (4 years in April).I have a 1-year-old son named Maddox. My family is everything to me. I absolutely love sports. I am a huge sports fan and a bit of a history buff.

In The House On Mango Street what stood out to me the most is the constant moving to different places that Esperanza expresses. I to moved around a lot when I was younger and have also been on the receiving end of the question --You live there? I believe the writing is at its best is when Esperanza describes her mother’s hair. The number of similes used in just this small paragraph is astonishing.

My family.
