I don't know how many of you truly watch the Jersey Shore, but I have watched it a few times. And quite frankly, I think it's ridiculous. Why would anyone want to watch a bunch of idiots get drunk? Plus, they're getting paid to do so. I bet that's just a great life they have *sarcasm, if you didn't catch it*.
And to think every kid in my high school loves that show. It makes me sick. What great models they have. OH, hey let's all get drunk like the Jersey Shore. Fist Pump! They even have a day dedicated to them which is on Thursday, and the girls all scrunch their hair and wear slutty clothes. Yay! We're teenagers, but we don't care about how others think because we're all stupid.
Figures. And it's sad that most of the girls in my school are obsessed with tanning. It makes me sick to see how much money they spend on destroying their skin. But they all want to be just like Snooki and J-Wow.
But you know, it's all normal in their opinion. Let's all go drink and kill our livers. Sounds like a great time to me! Not.
Is it weird that I'm 17 and can see past all this mumbo jumbo that's thrown at me. I mean, most girls get obsessed with fixing their hair up and destroying it with hair straighteners. They go tanning and ruin their skin. They wear skimpy clothes to grab boys' attentions, but they don't realize how ridiculous they all look. Why would I want to spend money just to make other people happy? Shouldn't I make myself happy first?
And while they're all going out to parties and getting drunk, being stupid, and wasting all their brains and money, the real things in life that we should know are rotting away. Whatever happened to girls learning how to sew, crochet, and knit? Have we all become zombies and become incapable of learning what really matters in life?
Well, I don't know about you, but I'm straying as far away from society as I can. Screw drinking, partying, smoking, "being" a teenager. I want to learn things that will help me in the real world.
Oh, and don't get me started about technology. Everyone's so obsessed with their phones and facebook that it makes me sick.
Does anyone else see how many steps our society is taking backwards?
