Notorious

Being  a teenager means keeping up a reputation, whether that be a one for the being the big bad bad ass who cracks skulls and skips school, the no good dime piece who turns out tricks like a professional prostitute, or the goodie goodie teacher's pet plain Jane. Everybody is known for something, people talk, it's high school, what else do we have to do? Rumors are not the problem, it's the content of what people are saying about you that can cause some drama. Every high school has it's bad boys, good girls gone bad, stuck ups, nerds, burnouts, and everything else in between, it's a constant struggle to make a name for yourself that you can be proud of.

Part of growing up is learning how to do the right thing. Decisions nowadays are bigger and lot more consequential. Everything we do and everything we say has a repercussion. All my classmates the major words we've been throwing around has been "where are you going to college" - uhm, I don't know yet, I can't decide until I've received admissions decisions from the remaining 5 colleges I applied too, slow your roll and don't rush me, I'm about to decide where I'll be spending the next four years of my life. It's great that you're all set, but this is not a decision to rush. We have to look within in ourselves and do what's best for the most people, as in, the greater good. Some people will have to be sacrificed in the process, but if the majority are helped, then it will all be worth it. We're going there with discussing standing up, abortions and being fired.

Abortion, one of the most taboo topics in Americas as of now. It's so…
