outside reading week 1: part 1
the memoir i have chosen to read is Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. The first section of my book talks about who Mitch was back in college when he first met Morrie and how he has changed in the present. Morrie was Mitch's professor at College. Mitch's point of view on himself was that he was a very quiet student in school and always attempted to look older than he was. Mitch then describes how his favorite professor was; Morrie was an old man with grey hair and he was a very small man. He had an explosive personality and very easy to talk to and very personable. Morrie enjoyed going out dancing at small clubs on campus and had many friends and loved ones. Mitch later describes their last meeting; which was at his graduation. Mitch had given Morrie a briefcase with his initials on it, and they had promised to keep in contact with one another. Unfortunately Mitch had gotten swept away in his high-profile job as a sports journalist that he never actually kept his promise, until one faithful night of watching tv.
