- How is a soldier emotionally affected after they return home from being stationed in one place for a long period of time?

For this assignment I chose this clip about students who get placed in a high school with humans as an experiment.
I choose prompt #2 and I’m going to write about “Drinking Coffee Elsewhere.” I think that the central significance of the title is orientation and it’s common theme throughout the story. Dina gets into an Ivy League in the city which means she has to leave Baltimore. In the story, orientation can be defined in two ways so therefore, I’m going to discuss how those two ways help define the story.
Why was Bruce Lee her idol?
Why did she tell the white ghost to go away?
When she was on the street and to men approached her, was she raped?
I’m not sure what I want to write about yet but the three prompts I’ve chosen so far are 1, 3, and 4.
1.An experience where I was “displaced” would be when I moved from Corona to East Elmhurst when I was seven years old.
3.A place that’s meaningful to me is a restaurant in Astoria called “Ricky’s Cafe.”
4.Lastly, how shifting from Spanish and English on a daily basis has shaped me my life.
