My American Dream

To be happy. Have my own little house and my 4 little kittens. I don't want to be rich just have enough money to get by in life and take care of myself. I would also want to live in a different state..... from away from my old life. I just want to eat food, no drama in life :)

Tom & Daisy's American Dream

"They were careless people, Tom and Daisy- they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made."

Example 1:

Daisy shows her carelessness by not answering the phone for Nick when he calls about her coming to Gatsby's funeral, that's petty.....

Example 2:

Tom shows his carelessness by planting his affair with Myrtle on Gatsby to make himself look good. He didn't want to have to have a bad name so he blamed the affair and the hit and run. Not only did he blame Gatsby but he sits and talks to Mr.Wilson about Myrtle's death like he didn't know her.

Example 3:

Daisy also shows her carelessness by hitting Myrtle. She didn't even stop to see if the person she hit was okay. she didn't even slow down. Daisy killed Myrtle! Daisy didn't give a damn either.

Example 4:

Tom smacks Myrtle in the mouth and broke her nose. He didn't even care about her or feelings at the time. He's disrespectful and rude to women. The man is ruthless.

Example 5:

They both hurt people & ruined lives of the people they were involved with. They both didn't give a damn that destroyed everything and everyone in their path without a care. They are very cold hearted people. They just moved away without anyone knowing and the East Egg town in pain and chaos.


This is young Lonardo Dicaprio. He was the main character in the book. There's no piont in this picture... he's just really perfect!
