Three Things About Me - week two posts A & B



Disdainful (pg.45) - full of or showing disdain; scornful.
Epitome (pg.48) - a person or thing that is typical of or possesses to a high degree the features of a whole class

One emerging them from the book is to follow your instinct when you believe something is wrong, even if it seems to belong in a movie.



Being only the second week of reading the book. I haven’t developed much of an interest towards Three Things about Me. So far, the plot and outcome of each entry of the characters have been very predictable. The only section that has interested me so far was Alma’s, the seemingly quiet and shy trainee among the rest.
’s ex-actress life style of fame and fortune had drastically changed to trying to support herself by working a 9-5 job. This changed because of her want to live as a “normal” person. Yet, still being “normal”, she had found herself in one of the most uncommon situations. On Page 47 in the book, Alma is walking down the street, she saw an old lady up high in a retiring home with a sign against the window that read “HELP”. Alma immediately thought she had misread it, but unfortunately she hadn’t. Alma ends up “rescuing” an elderly lady from what seemed to be an un-safe and abusive nursing home. To me, this shows that she cares for other people more then herself, because she brought the elderly women to live with her, even though she had been living off every last cent she had.
