Kenny Ohata Writing 150 Spring 2018 Professor Landau My Misspent Youth In this article, we delve deep into Daum’s experience in New York and how her values began to change based on her time there. It all manifested from her aspirations in becoming a writer in the Big Apple, fantasizing to soon move out of her small apartment and live a lavish lifestyle. Soon however, reality started to kick in as she fell to the grasp of lingering debt that quickly consumed her well-being. Readers soon learn that though she faces crippling debt, Daum still lives a lavish lifestyle. She doesn't hesitate in buying décor for her home, one item being a $200 antique lamp. She also lacks the hesitation in spending money in social settings: $45 on dinner and $20 on drinks. Daum values her image and fittings in with the New York societal culture.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
