  1. Consumer culture has without a doubt affected my education.

    I am noticing this more now that I am in college. In high school it seemed like more people were stuck between being "cool" and being unique, not sure themselves which they wanted to be. Now it seems those who are "unique" by nature stop trying to be like the normal and show their true colors.

  2. What were the lives of people like in the 19th century cities?

    Henry Davenport would be happy with his life. He should have a good childhood with a good education. He should be happy for that and thank his parents.
