I'm Holden Caulfield, but you can call me Holden. I am a teenage boy who is trying to take in what it's like to grow into adulthood. I have recently been expelled from Pency Prep and I am too scared to tell my parents. I have 3 siblings, but my brother Allie passed away from lukemia, so now it's just my other brother D.B. and my sister Phoebe.
This is Stradlater. He is my roommate at Pency Prep. He is a big show off and a stupid moron. The only thing that he is good at is sex. When I get too uncomfortable around him, I will put on my red hunting hat. It makes me feel less lonely.
Sooooo, yes. There is snow here at Pency. All beautiful and white, so prestine. But they're kids that just don't care about keeping it all clean and looking fresh. They just want to play in the snow and make snowballs. I like makingsnowballs too, but I'm not gonna throw it. It would ruin the way that it looks right now. I just want the snow to last and not go away, but they are not helping.
Now, this is someone special. Her name is Jane Gallagher. I have liked this girl for a really long time. We would play checkers and talk all day on the porch. That's all though. We were all innocent and didn't want that to change. However, Stradlater took her from me. Swept her right off her own two feet. I was really mad. Jane and I were suppose to be the ones that lasted forever. We use to play checkers when we were little and we would talk and talk.
Holden often visits the duck pond in Central Park. It is something that calms him down when he has too much on his mind.The ducks in the pond is something that Holden thinks about a lot. He cares about them and worries that they may never come back if they leave.
Also, when the ducks are not in the pond, he wonders where they could be or where they could have gone to. With the ducks not always there, it makes Holden ponder on the idea of becoming an adult and maturing into adulthood.
Now that you have heard about the special days in my life, I can tell you that I am in a mental institution getting help. I have been here for a while now and I don't see me coming out any time soon.
