The two pieces that we read this week had to be two of my favorite pieces out of the whole semester. White Teeth was very interesting to me because I could connect with it so easily, as I'm sure everyone in the class could. We all had that moment growing where we made complete fools out of ourselves in the front of the person we have the biggest crush on, and then realizing later that we have fallen for someone else. I was attracted to How Ireland Lost the World Cup because of the mystery of it. Parts that I couldn't understand became somewhat clear, and then at the very end it all made sense. It was so tragic that she lost the man that she fell in love with, the one person that she felt comfortable with in her new home. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a love story!
