In this day and age, every young teenage girl wants to be popular and pretty. Everyday I see girls like this in high school, gossiping about everyone and being gossiped about. They worry too much about how everyone views them and not enough about how they view themselves. They worry about how their hair looks, their makeup, and their clothes. These girls don't care if their feet hurt at the end of the day because they wore high heels. (Yes, girls at my high school wear high heels. Why? I don't know.) And at the end of the day, nobody gave a damn what they wore, and they don't even realize it. I mean heck, I can't even remember what I wore the other day, let alone yesterday.
And then there's clothes...Girls wear clothes to show off and look oh-so-pretty. Well, what ever happened to looking classy, not like a whore? They wear yoga pants to show off their butt. They wear super low cut shirts. They pile on the makeup. Some even get plastic surgery to fix what everyone makes fun of them about. (Plastic surgery?! Now that's taking it too far, but I do know someone who got plastic surgery when they were 14. I'm not kidding you, and it was only because the boys made fun of her face.)
What ever happened to good morals? What ever happened to girls covering their chests? Are girls really that desperate these days to succeed and get a boyfriend? But then again, they get boyfriends for all the wrong reasons. A boy won't end up liking them because of their personality, but because they have a nice bod. Girls my age and younger will never realize this. Quite frankly, I'd rather have a guy stare at my face than my chest, but that's just my opinion.
And it's not even just girls that go along with the crowd, although they are much more susceptible to it. Everyone at school wants to be popular, so they go to parties and drink till they can't remember anything. What's the point of not remembering your teenage years? And they don't drink just to drink. They drink to get drunk. I mean heck, go sniff some glue while you're at it. Go get alcohol poisoning too, but they don't care. It's all to impress everyone else. In other countries, they drink from a young age. Over there they learn to sip their wine, not chug it. And over here, we complain about the drinking age. Well, you going out and getting drunk plus getting busted by the cops doesn't help. They'll never lift that law now matter how much they complain. But they go on out and drink anyways, knowing they could get busted at any moment, and if you're 18, your going to jail, bub.
Too bad nobody cares. Just like the beginning of the opening of Family Guy says:
Lois: It seems today
That all you see
Is violence in movies and sex on TV
Peter: But where are those good old fashioned values
Entire Family: On which we used to rely?
