Why I Wanna Go To college


            I wanna go to college because it can give you more opportunities to choose from, and because for certain  jobs you have to have a degree in doing what you want.

Shout out to all the college chicas out there!

This month and the next month is definitely crunch time. This is the time where a bunch of projects, papers, and exams are due and everyone at school is stressed out because of all their work on top of their out of school engagements. I can definitely feel the stress at this point but I am determined to get the grades I have been working for this entire semester. It is nice to once in a while take a breather from everything, which is what I realized today. Lately, I have been guilty of…

College questions and answers!

How did you prepare for college?

In all honesty, I really didn't prepare much for college, aside from taking several AP courses in high school and applying to a few scholarships my senior year. I feel like I didn't have the proper guidance from counselors and wasn't told to take courses that could apply as…

Studying Tips

When it comes to studying , I like to always review my notes or the assignments I did in class it is a way that helps me remember what I learned on that specific day. Also another way I would say it is effective is to highlight important concepts or important vocabulary words. When studying for an exam it is also important to take very good notes when in class write as much as possible about the topic covered in class, and be organized with your notes, for example highlight important things…

Obsession With Celebrity Culture And Why It Is Unhealthy: The Kardashian-Jenner Clan

Nowadays it seems that you cannot scroll down your Facebook newsfeed with out seeing posts relating to the Kardashian-Jenner clan and similar "celebrities" and their lives. This poses a problem to me because people are being pushed (particularly women) to look and act according to the way their favorite celebrities would. Rather than pay any mind to what is going on in the world American media forces women to believe that these celebrities are someone they should aspire to be. Lately I…

If I was the first Woman President

If I was the first Woman president I would give equal opportunities to both men and women both in the workplace and in education. Having equal rights for both men and women is very important to make this world a better place and live in peace. I would also make sure that everyone has medical insurance at low costs, so that they can visit the doctor and take care of themselves. Being a president I think is something very challenging because you have so many responsibilities and everyone is…

Being a Feminist to me means treating women unequally, not believing that women can have the same opportunities as men. It is wrong to treat women without the same privileges as men because we also need equal opportunities when it comes to education and employment. Women are also capable of doing great things for this world and deserve equal rights. I do think that Feminism is still important today because there is still people who are feminist an don't treat women the way they should be…
