SOE/Sequence Of Events

  • Nikki's mom took Nikki's bike to see her grandma
  • Nikki's mom is going to give medicine to her grandma
  • Nikki's dad criticizes her food saying its cold

Characteristics

Nikki's dad : Nikki's dad seems like a very self-centered person, who only cares about his work. Nikki's dad got laid off recently, so he is having a "meltdown" In my opinion, its seems like this is where Nikki is getting her selfishness.

Tom Harris : Tom is a gentle, careful person. His mom is sick and has a  terrible cough. So, he spending all his money ($200) to get good food for his mother. In all, Tom is a very nice person.

My Snapshot

I used this picture for my "Snapshot", because the gas station in Marietta is flooded, so this picture resembles that moment.
