Children having Children

Today the new hit shows are “Teen Mom” or “16 and Pregnant” on MTV. I’m sad to say that my roommates and some of my closest friends are obsessed with these shows. In my option, it sickens me. The most common age group watching these shows on MTV are young teenage girls. If I know anything about teenage girls, they are gullible, self-conscious, and will do anything for attention. So it is the worst idea ever for MTV to have these shows. These girls all over America have seen girls their age get pregnant and famous. So why can’t they? Hormones are already raging through kids that age and sex is kind of common, so what’s stopping them from doing it since all the kids on TV are? Personally, it’s just pure trashy.

I have no idea what this world is coming to anymore. I graduated with 94 people, 48 of them being girls, and 20 of them having children before we graduated. It’s just sickening to think that the statistics are getting worse every year. Most of the “teen moms” don’t even go to college because they are home taking care of their kids and living  off of our tax money. A lot of schools have debated about handing out condoms during the sex-ed week, but most disagree with it because it is “promoting sex”. UH HELLO?!?! THESE STUPID MTV SHOWS ARE PROMOTING SEX!! Not to mention the new show “Skins”. It is just pathetic and trashy. What happened to MTV being nothing but awesome music videos and TRL Live? I really wish someone would step in and do something about it, because if nothing is done, then the statistics of teen pregnancy are just going to keep climbing every year.

Shutting Down the Social Network

If Facebook and other social media networks shut down I literally think it would be an anarchy. Facebook is the number one used social network in the world with over 500 million active users. Some people get on Facebook over 20 times a day. A lot of companies use Facebook to get their name out there and promote their company in the internet world. Honestly though, if Facebook actually did shut down, I feel like people would have no choice but to go back to the lives they lived before it consumed their life. It would definitely be a hard adjustment, but they would have no choice. I personally would probably be a little upset if it shut down because I mainly use it to connect with friends and family I rarely see. If anything though there will be a lot more social networks enter our lives in the future.

Carpe Diem Comments

Topic of the Week- Carpe Diem

To seize the day. Or, to make use of it. Something I thoroughly live by. We only have so many years to live before we are dead and forgotten in this world. Only one life to experience (unless you’re Buddhist and believe in reincarnation).  People who just sit at home watching TV to waste their day sickens me. Why not go out and make new memories doing thrilling experiences and learned new things? I for one have always been one to get out and do something fun. The biggest thing I have done to “seize the day” has probably been the first step in applying for my study abroad trip to Costa Rica last year. I never in a million years thought that I would go to another country for two weeks without my parents and with a group of people I knew nothing about. Not to mention staying at a random family’s house who didn’t speak a lick of English. Yes, it was tough, but it was by far the best experience I have ever gotten to do and I wish I could do it again. The best advice I would give someone is to go after what you desire. Never let anything get in your way. ALWAYS seek out new adventures because there would never be any regrets. Here are some useful quotes to live by:


Live every day as if it were your last and then some day you’ll be right.  ~H.H. “Breaker” Morant

Do not take life too seriously.  You will never get out of it alive.  ~Elbert Hubbard

As you grow older, you’ll find the only things you regret are the things you didn’t do.  ~Zachary Scott

There are a million ways to lose a work day, but not even a single way to get one back.  ~Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister
