My name is Megan Morgan, and I am a sophomore here at The Ohio State University. I am majoring in fashion and retail studies. I transferred to Ohio State last winter, and before that I went to Kent State for a semester. While I was at Kent State I was on the cheerleading team. I am transferring to the Columbus campus next quarter. I participate in the Fashion Student Organization club on the Columbus campus. I am the manager at L.A Tan in Delaware. I have been working there for about 8 months. I really enjoy hanging out with friends, and attending Ohio State football games.
“I am only trying to understand the corrosive mixture of helplessness, responsibility, and shame that I learned to feel as the son of an alcoholic”. This sentence really stood out to me because I could relate to it. My father was, and still is an alcoholic and I know the feeling of helplessness, and also the feeling of what did I do wrong. The author talked about on page 193 how he tried to get good grades, and be a good athlete, and do work around the house, and I also related to this because as hard as I tried I also felt like it wasn’t good enough. My father is not the extent of the author’s father, but I a lot of his ways remind me of my dad.
