Parblic Sarvice Arnarncemarnts

1)I found that the PSA was pretty effective. The thing I found most effective was the images. It showed pictures of all the people hurt just because of one text.

2)The point of this PSA is to attempt to get kids to be more active and get up and play. I find it useful because it takes a character that the kids already know and love and try to use them to motivate kids to get up and move. I find that the image is most effective because of this.

High Skewl Diploma

1) If you do not have a diploma it may affect your self-esteem and people with low self-esteem are less likely to stick up for themselves and overall less confident in everything/anything they say. People with low self-esteem are also less likely to go in search for a job because they often feel as if they will never be able to get it as well. As well as all of these it can also leave a mark on relationships.

2) Students who constantly attempt to further their education and knowledge leave an impact on society, set a good example for peers/younger kids to be a role model, and help through taxes and community involvement. People who generally don't finish high school overall are more likely to be incarcerated or go to jail for lack of better term. If nearly 1 million students are not helping society and are generally more likely to be convicted of a felony and go to jail, that does tend to make me think that they are hurting society overall.

3) According to this trend students that get held back are more likely to drop out later on, have lower test grades, and it does not benefit them academically or socially. If this means that 25% of freshmen are more likely to drop out that hurts society and the community because of a higher unemployment rate. This can also hurt the school's reputation, and make them look bad. If the school wanted to help they could try to seek out counselors/tutors who were willing to help failing kids and see why or what was causing this.

Personality over grades

1) Grit can be described as perseverance and passion for long-term goals, this is very important to have in life because, if you're going to start something and give it up just because one thing goes awry, it is important to be able to start something and to stick with it even if something goes wrong, and have passion for what you are attempting to accomplish. I strongly agree with the phrase entitled child culture, I feel that kids now have everything handed to them on a silver platter and growing up with this gives them the idea that they are the best person and they get whatever they want throughout life, and if something goes wrong it's someone else's fault in every single instance no matter scenario.

2) Someone who shows consistent effort often show dedication to something they believe in, and it shows that they find that it is important, someone who constantly puts something off to last minute and crams it into one day or a night show that they don't find that it is important and are more likely to bail on the idea when it comes down to it. It is important to show consistent effort because if you show dedication and interest employers and colleges are going to look for that instead of someone who seems to be a quitter. If you and one other are applying for the same job and you show consistent effort and the other person seems to be the person to push something off until the last minute, you are more likely to get the job.

3) I feel that I am the strongest in intellectual curiosity because I find myself more times out of not asking about a topic that I do not understand and finding the small bits that confuse me and something that doesn't seem right or an error/loophole. I feel that over the next three years I should focus mainly on improving my emotional resilience as I mainly focus on the letter grades because my parents push that on me more than anything if the letters are low than I'm doing something wrong they often say.

High Schoo Grades And Foutur Saladry

1) He demonstrates how people from the 1960's and people from the 1940's make almost a $400,000 wage gap, even with the same education.

2) Better grades were linked to both higher earnings and a higher chance of continuous studying after high school. He says that for every one-point increase in GPA there was about a 12%-14% increase in annual earnings.

3) Minorities, I guess it might be a stronger will power, as they have a worse background than whites some might try and show that they are equal.

Militar3y Sch00l

1) I believe the surge in student enrollment is all the students that want to correct themselves, because of what Mireya Orozco "I like the discipline of it, it has taught me self-control."

2) It works to show how discipline affects so many. It shows how effective this type of schooling is. Sometimes students actually enjoy discipline and the effects of it.

3) Student responsibility is important because it teaches students how they will have responsibility in any scenario in life, it teaches them how real life will be. You could enforce late work more to try and show how kids need to know responsibility.

Social media and Jobs/Schooling

1) I do personally believe that they should look at your social media, because if you are saying stuff that shouldn't be said or that's controversial to many, then they should have the right to deny you. I know many people at our school that says really controversial or bad things in social media. If you're going to be saying bad things about the school or the people inside it then they don't need you.

2) I do agree that kids are trying to be more of a character and not have character, there are plenty of people in this school that speak before thinking and constantly try to make jokes, and many of them don't know when to stop. I myself can often be caught speaking before thinking.

3) One of the rules that we have at the school that mimic's what you may find in most jobs, is the "no cell phones" rule. I do believe that the high school is putting in an effort to prepare students for life after school, but how well they enforce these rules also affect the students. Many teachers enforce the rule, but many also don't care and allow their students to do whatever, whenever.

Tedious bills

1) The rent for a 2 bedroom apartment is $759 and if I only pay half it's $379.50. So I should be ok with this.

2) Phone plan for only my share would be $22.50
car- car insurance will cost $115 per month
electric- $30-$100 per month
Gasoline- about $132 per month for gas for me car
gas- $40- $150 per month
oil change- $25
food- If I eat nothing but soup it will cost me roughly $20
Internet- Internet bill on average costs $50 a month
Misc- Toilet paper for probably just over a month would cost $16, $10 for hair and body wash for a month or so. $8 for laundry for a month. Light Bulbs for $25 for about 10 light bulbs.
End- After all of this stuff I just paid for I would have roughly $144 left over for saving for whatever I am saving up for at that point.

3) It would be hard living paycheck to paycheck because every little bit of money counts and if you overspend your a little screwed over. If you have a skill that is important that is not as common than people are going to pay you more for having a rare skill.
