So who else is ready to go back to school in August? I have taken the semester off and I have to say I have missed the late night study sessions and the cramming in homework the night before its due.

No matter what we are doing, where we are, or the time of day, we are surrounded by the media’s messages. You could be checking out groceries at the local supermarket when you see the blonde, blue eyed woman on the cover of a magazine or in the car when you hear about the latest weight loss product.
