Having a baby is a wonderful thing in life, but not when you are a teen. Adults who have children are mostly done with school and went to collage already, they have a good working job, have a reasonable amount of money, a good home, and someone they really love and plan to live their life with. On the other hand teens who have children have a harder time finishing school,  get into collage, have to work longer, don’t have enough money, live with there parents and end up being single. That’s bad enough but teens like to have fun too and having a child means staying in more and not going to parties or its harder for them to find someone to be in a relationship with. Pregnant teens and teen mothers are already ruining there life and I want to help girl who are baby free stay like that and live life better and happier.

Teens have many different reasons for getting pregnant and having children, and its usually because of the way they feel, the people they are around, whats going on in the community, and sometimes the parents they have. Some teens don’t have caring parents which could mean that they don’t really know where their kids are at or maybe they  don’t talk to their kids much or they just don’t show much love to their kids. That make teens feel like they are not cared for or loved and they will try to find love with a boy just to feel cared for. Also many time they see how their friends are getting pregnant and they might think its not to bad but really, her friends will be going through some trouble.

I read a blog about a girl who had a baby and it was much harder to care for as a teen. But at the same time she was losing her best friend. She had to be home taking care of her baby. Her friend didn’t invite her to movie nights or parties and she never wanted to visit because she didn’t want to be around the baby and hear it cry.   I personally think that’s just being a bad friend but it happens!

This is an excerpt from a pregnant teen her self who wants to help prevent pregnancy for teens and is trying to put awareness out there:

“I currently am seventeen years old and I am pregnant. I have had to make the hardest decision(s) of my life regarding this child, including, Abortion, Adoption, Keeping the baby, What is best for the baby, etc. I don’t want any teen to have to go through this, because it is harder than I ever thought it was. I also want to prevent any more teens from intentionally getting pregnant. I have a personal blog that I run and update daily on my life, this experience, and this issue. It does not glamorize teen pregnancy, but gives the “real deal” from somebody who is experiencing it. I am also participating in a documentary on national television regarding this issue. I just want to prevent teen pregnancy as much as I can, and spread awareness.”

If you would like to continue reading her blog post for more information you can click here.

Teens sometimes feel pressured by a guy to do things and that how girl get pregnant if they don’t have protection or the guy is really making her do it. You can say you are abstinence witch is not having sex. If a guy doesn’t respect that then he is just is not the right guy for you. If you would like to know more about abstinence check out this  page. Also if you need help on pregnancy, on getting protection, or if you just want some information check out planned parenthood.

Lots of teens have ruined  life and been more stressed out and made hard choices and decision because of being pregnant and being a teen mother. I’m just trying to help girls live life instead of  working way to hard. Hope you live a great and smart life!

 

When I’m in the car each morning on my way to school I just think about how my day will be IN school!!  And this is how it goes for me every day.

I have English first period and I hate to go to that class because I feel so uncomfortable. This kid tells his friends every time I walk in” Hey!” and gives him the looked that im there. He does that because supposedly the kid likes me, but I don’t think so. Anyways, I get uncomfortable cause I feel like I have to be perfect when I walk in. I cant look like crap every time I walk in the class now!

Then I have web design and I’m not so great on the computers but I love to see these two girls in that class because they dress really cute. And that gives me ideas on my designs and also on what I should buy to wear in school. And then I get to algebra and I love my teacher. He is real tall and young but he is really funny! I think hes cool.

Next is my social studies class but all I do is take notes and try to get through the class. I herd these two girls talking about who are nerds and who is cool, and they said shes a nerd..shes a nerd and I’m hoping they were not talking about me! Because I’m the AWSOMEST person! If thats a word! 😀 But its all good, cause when I become famous they are going to want to meet me and ill be like nahh…you don’t talk to nerds!!

Okay back to my classes, after social studies I go to science..or I should call it Biology…but the only thing I think about is trying to make friends in that class because I sit in a table with three girls and there are nice. And finally lunch and I can hang out with viviana! (my best friend). I dont have her in any classes so that why i LOVE lunch! The I go to spanish, and I already know that ill be walking faast to my locker and getting my spanish book and then walking FAST to CLASS!

But finally I think about the end of the day! My last period! It always feels like the shortest period. 7th period is reading! But we hardly do work in there..well we do do work of course! But it really easy!

And that is how I think of my day every morning!! 🙂 and since I wrote about how my day will be today, I’m going to go start it!!!

Who Put me in this LUNCH?!

August 29, 2010

So I finally get my schedule for my Freshman year at Freedom high school and I’m like “UMMM…. NOO!”

High school is supposed to be some of the best  years of  my life, and I’m not starting it like this! According to my FCAT scores I get put in HONORS Algebra & INTENSIVE Reading?? So does that mean they think I’m too smart for regular algebra and NOT smart enough for regular reading?!!!! Now I don’t get a third elective. I guess guitar will have to wait until sophomore year.

Well I ended up having no friends in my classes. So my only hope is that “A” lunch will have familiar faces, but NO ONE!! And that ended my not so great first day OF HIGH SCHOOL!!!!! So you think I’m going to stay in these dumb classes!! you’re crazy!! Right  when I got home I said ” Mom! get on the computer and get me out of those classes and put in “B” lunch!”  The second day was just like the first. Same classes, same lunch, same dumb day! But thank the lord that day because I e-mailed my guidance counselor and BEGGED him to fix up that messed up schedule of mine. I didn’t hear from him that night so I thought Wednesday was going to be the same as the rest! But Noooo!!! 😀 Mr.Bradford came to my first period class and saved me from the horrible third day of school! I ended up getting “B” lunch and a regular algebra class! Wellllll..different teachers but better school year! Thank Heavens for Mr.Bradford!  I now think this will be the best school year just because I get to see my friends.

Huhh.. “A” lunch!!!  Not my lunch…NOT my problem!!! Thats what I say 😉
