#1 Concern with Graduating October 21, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — emilywitty @ 1:43 pm

I think a really big concern with graduating high school is what your are going to do afterwards. There are a lot of questions you have to think about such as what you are going to do with your life if your going to college or university. How you are going to get the money to go there if thats what your doing. I think my biggest concern is how I am going to have enough money to go to school and live on my own. After high school life is going to change drastically and things will be a lot different is what I think and you then have to make your own desicions so it’s good to start thinking about them before your done high school and still have time. You can take a year off but statistics say the people that take time off in between school and college find a job and never go back because they like the money. So taking a year off might seem like a good idea but it can turn out to be a lot more than a year taken off.

Media & Girls October 12, 2011

I think that the media is very harsh on girls and thats why so many girl try to be perfect. They are always trying to be super skinny and wearing tons of make up because of all the girls that they see on tv or in magazines. Girls are wanting to dress like these girls then they are often called names and are considered “sluts” because of the way that they follow the girls in the media. The media has a lot to do with girls attitudes and many other things these days, a lot of girls have eating disorders because they are trying to be really skinny like girls in magazines but the truth is those girls are photo shoped no one actually looks like that. Girls have it pretty hard because they think they need to compete with each other and it all just causes problems, that is why I think the media is really having a big impact on girls young girls especially.
