“We're taught at such a young age that you can always be better and that you're never perfect and that you're never good enough.” This a quotation from SHAWN JHONSON. In younger years we experience indefinable feelings like walking in the clouds and curiousness. There is always a question in our mind about a certain things, place and many more.

Being a teenager is like experimenting something. We go out in our comfort zone. We are trying many things and also doing it. Curiousness is the reason why we are trying those things. In fact in this period teen agers learned how to smoke, how to drink alcoholic drinks. Most people called this period the beginning of bad habits. Our body is slowly changing in this period. Not only physical changes but also emotional changes. Teenagers trying to act like adult but sometimes they act like childish person. Most of the time we do things and make a decision without understanding and analyzing what will happen next.

Teenagers want things as easy as possible. They don’t to have a responsibility and others don’t want to follow their parents. Some are respectful and some are honest. In this period teenagers feel sometimes that they are alone in this world. It’s hard to understand teenagers sometimes.

Infatuation is a common feeling teenagers feels. It is define as the state of being completely carried away by unreasoned passion or love according to WIKIPEDIA, online free encyclopedia. Most of the times teenagers feels an instant love affair. But truth it is just a crush. For example they like the nose, lips skin and appeal. It is called

I Wrote This When I Was Young, so Don't Judge Me

...Loretta passed away. That was a sad day, yes it was. I cried. You can ask my poppa about how I cried for 2 weeks straight. Oh, how I cried. Maybe I’m getting’ way, way ahead of my-self. My name Loretta, too, and ain’t nobody tellin’ me my name is nothin else. That is not who I is! Anyway, I live on some plantation in northern Carolina and these parts ain’t kind to ya either. I work muh butt off to keep it from that mean, nasty, leather strip. I mean, I work hard- I don’t quit either. My poppa was born into slavery and his great-great grandpappy was a hick straight from the sticks. He mad at the white folks- but also his ancestors fer not fightin’ back. We do a lot of ‘hardships’ to remain happy, or so my granny used to say when I was a young’un. My life as a slave was not one u might expect. Now, if you readin’ this, I’m most likely off living somewhere in the north. Now, that is the adventure of my life I don’t regret it one bit. Here’s how the story of a lifetime unfolds… It all started when a strange knock appeared on our door. Naturally, I ran to a small hole just big enough for me that my father had dug and covered the top with a blanket. I did this for protection against bad people. But it wasn’t anybody! So, I waited and waited. Plantation owners were known to play tricks on us. But what had happened was so much more. My friend Husha from church called my name. I perked my head up- to make sure that it wasn’t a trick. When I was reassured, I walked up to her and greeted...

Essay On Quinceanera

...On November 7, my family and I were invited to attend a Quinceanera. The Quinceanera is a ceremonial rite of passage in which a young Hispanic girl is celebrating the ritual of symbolically marking the stage of life when she transitions from a young girl to a women. The Quinceanera I attended is celebrated with a religious mass at a catholic church and a party to follow at a venue. My family and I make way to a catholic church where everyone will be gathering for the Quinceanera to begin. I took part in a mass called Misa de accoin de gracias, or to give thanks for a completed childhood. I see the girl make her appearance by entering the church in procession with her parents, then followed by her grandparents. I look as she is seated at the foot of the church altar in an elaborate blue formal dress. I take notice that around her is seated her damas (maid of honors) and her chambelanes (escorts). I asked the people around me who they were and they explained to me that these are relatives or friends that are closest to her. Before the mass had started, I over hear the people talking about how the, the church service is the most beautiful part of the whole night. I take notice that everyone attending the mass mostly is Hispanic. I realize that the priest must of noticed the younger people, so he used Spanglish and sometimes English....

Activity Paper

...2016 we celebrated my Pastors’ 5th Anniversary/Birthday at a local park. While I help set-up things, this young man caught my attention. As I sat there observing the young adolescent male, I decided that he would use be the person I use to complete my observation on. This male is of African American decent and is approximately 15-16 years old. This young man caught my attention because he was so polite and helpful in assisting a few of our elderly members from their cars and/or church van. I watched him interact and played basketball with an older male that he resembled a great deal, so I am assuming that the older male is his father. The young man started to socialize with and eventually joined the youth from my church as they played a few games. This young man had obviously started puberty, the physical transition to adulthood. He had a shadow of facial hair, his voice was deep and his shoulders were wide and muscular. But his feet and arms still appeared slightly out of proportion which made me think he had not reached his expected adult height. This observation is what led to my guess in his age to be approximately 15-16 years old. I made an educated guess on the fact that his facial hair and wide shoulders indicate that he is in later stages of puberty but his out of proportion feet and arms led me to think he was younger than 17-18 which is the normal age to have reached your adult stature. He was also much taller and bigger then all of the girls in his same age range and...

Reflection on Communication and Interaction Skills

...Care home. The way we communicate may also vary dependent on how many people we are communicating with, which could be an individual which will require a much more specific way and a group which will need a much broader range if ways to communicate following the idea of “one size to fit all”. One-to-one An example of a one to one interaction was when I was at my placement, communicating with a young person who was new to the youth centre. Due to the loud noise surrounding us in the main room I gave them a brief tour around the centre and finishing off in the TV room which was quieter and only had 2 other young people in it. I did this due to the need to be able to clearly talk and listen once finishing the talk if they had any questions without any background noise causing a barrier or other distractions. To achieve this I took them on the tour and deliberately ended in the quieter room without putting any pressure on the young person causing them to shy away or become distracted by any other background noise. Due to the young person being new they had to fill in a consent form, in which it allows us to identify the needs of the young person and if they require any further assistance or specific need to provide them with a much better quality service by enhancing the...

Growing Up As A Young Carer

...A young carer is someone under the age of 18 who cares for someone they know, be it a family member, friend, neighbour or just some random person they know, that has an illness, disablity or addication. Growing up in a small town with only my mum, dad, younger brother and two cats for company was hard. The thing that made it easier was looking after my mum. She has a physical disability and severe depression, meaning I had to help her around the house and looking after my younger brother, who has autism and Aspergures Syndrome, while dad was out at work.

... I was a runner in high school. I ran various events, however, my primary race was the 800-meter. There were two of us in my high school who were pretty good at this particular race. During my senior year I was coming back from an injury and was very excited to begin the season after training throughout the fall and winter. I remember very vividly my first race of the year. My teammate and I were both scheduled to run the 800. Prior to the race, I went over to my teammate and said, “here we go! Lets get first and second!” For some reason in my mind, I was thinking that he would be first and I would be second. We started the race and I immediately got right behind him. I trailed him the entire way. From the beginning of the race to the end of the race, I followed him. We ended up being #1 and #2 that day and I was #2. I think back to that race today, all of the training, all of the effort and in the midst of that race, I didn’t give it my all. The gun fired and I was in the midst of the race, I didn’t have victory on my mind, I was willing to take 2nd. I was willing to run the perfect race until I got close to the finish line. Have you ever started well and come up short? Stepped out in pursuit of God’s best, but didn’t complete it. Have you ever settled for less or given half of your heart? This morning, I want to take a look at following Jesus wholeheartedly. In my walk and relationship with Jesus, there have been instances where I started...

Cultural Observation

...201-Section # B06 Observation: I walked into River Crossing Mall to observe the youth of today. As I entered the mall, my first thought was that watching young people surely could not generate an entire four-page report. You see, I have never taken an interest in watching people that I did not have any direct contact with. I took the escalator down to the first level and I ordered some Chinese food and a diet coke. I found an empty table and proceeded to let the observation begin. Much to my surprise, I began to pay close attention to a group of very young white kids at a table about three rows up from where I was sitting. The first thing I noticed about them is that they each had body piercings and tattoos covered most of their arms. I wondered how they would feel about the dramatic body art they were advertising in about twenty years from now. Next, I saw two young white boys sporting blonde spiked Mohawk hairstyles standing around just outside a video game store. They appeared to be staring very intently at something on the back of one of the games that they each had purchased. This only lasted as long as it took for them to notice three young black girls, who could not have been more then thirteen or fourteen at the most, as they walked by. These girls wore the most revealing and tight little shorts I think I have ever seen on anyone before. When the girls saw that the boys were looking at them, surprisingly, they seemed to get offended. I wondered why since they were showing...

Event Cultural Critique

...2015 November 30, 2015 The Young Lord in New York held by El Museo del Barrio By Steffany Estevez Steffany Estevez LAT 125 Cultural Event critique November 30, 2015 El Museo Del Barrio hosted an event of The Young Lords in New York in which explores the legacy of the Young Lords in East Harlem, the Bronx and the Lower East Side, focusing on specific political events that the Young Lords organized in these locations. I attended to this event on November 24, 2015, presented by the museum. El Museo’s exhibition draws from works in the museum’s own collection including copies of the Young Lords weekly newspaper,” Palante”. It also explores the legacy of the Young Lords and the relationship between art and activism. Images by photographer Hiram Maristany that feature the Young Lords’ Garbage Offensive, their takeover of the First Spanish Methodist Church of East Harlem (later renamed by the Young Lords as The People’s Church), their free morning breakfast program, the rerouting of a TB-testing truck and the funeral of Julio Roldán everything was highlighted in the exhibition. The Young Lords founded in Chicago in September 1968, the Young Lords Organization later developed a chapter in New York City in July 1969 when various groups came together in the interest of neighborhood improvement and Puerto Rican self-determination. The New York chapter was led by a group of students and young people working together, including Felipe Luciano,...

...Our story today is called, "The Ambitious Guest. " It was written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Here is Harry Monroe with our story. Narrator:  One December night, a long, long time ago, a family sat around the fireplace in their home. A golden light from the fire filled the room. The mother and father laughed at something their oldest daughter had just said. The girl was seventeen, much older than her little brother and sister, who were only five and six years old. A very old woman, the familys grandmother, sat knitting in the warmest corner of the room. And a baby, the youngest child, smiled at the fires light from its tiny bed. This family had found happiness in the worst place in all of New England. They had built their home high up in the White Mountains, where the wind blows violently all year long.
The family lived in an especially cold and dangerous spot. Stones from the top of the mountain above their house would often roll down the mountainside and wake them in the middle of the night. No other family lived near them on the mountain. But this family was never lonely. They enjoyed each others company, and often had visitors. Their house was built near an important road that connected the White Mountains to the Saint Lawrence River. People traveling through the mountains in wagons always stopped at the familys door for a drink of water and a friendly word. Lonely travelers, crossing the mountains on foot, would step into the house to share a hot meal. Sometimes, the...

...…. Over the past 10 years there has been a growing interest in the significance of physical activity in young peoples lives and organisations such as SPARC, local gyms, sports councils, local sports trusts and our own schools have been prominent in sending messages to young people what they deem to be physical activity ideals. In our school there has been a lot of debate around issues, such as, which activities are supported the most and why, are the stereotypes surrounding certain physical activities and who are the decision makers in our school when it comes to issues related to physical activity opportunities. This critical discussion seeks to explore the varied roles of physical activity in young peoples lives and how these role are significant. It will examine the influences and assumptions surrounding the debate. The World Health Organisation defines physical activity as “Any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that define movement”. It is important to be aware that physical activity is not just sport. In a lot of research I found about how young people participate in physical activity I was annoyed to see the surveys focused a lot on sport and therefore did not take into account that young people might be active through other physical activities. For example, the Stay and Play study suggests that 70% of kids drop out of sport between 13-17 years, 62%indicate they are highly likely to drop out of sport and 50% don’t do any sport. However, whose to...

What I See as the Biggest Challenges That Young People Face Today?

...Have you ever wondered why so it seems like so many of our young adults are having such a difficult time adjusting or getting on their feet? Don’t you find it hard to ignore the many news articles and stories about the economy and how it’s so many people being affected by poverty, and the ever rising costs of education? Today, I would like to talk to you a little bit about how the changes in the economy, poverty levels, and costs of education are affecting young people from all walks of life. Young people are not just perplexed about what to wear, but many are more concerned with where they are going to live and how to make ends meet. Today’s economy has fluctuated so much in the past few years that poverty is at an all time high. Young adults that would otherwise live on their own are finding themselves to be stuck living with their parents or relatives either because they can’t make ends meet on their own or assistance is needed at home. Young people are forced to take on more responsibilities such as assisting in the care giving of family members. I read an article in Time magazine recently showing the U.S. Census Bureau’s findings; that young adults are not leaving home because they are not in a position to support themselves. I remember when I turned 18 years old in 2000, not only was I able to support myself pretty well, but I was also able to go to school at the same time; while there was a little struggle, I was able to maintain myself. Times have changed greatly since...

Students in the 21st Century

...Diana Lovato EDU-210 February 8, 2015 Instructor Winter Students in the 21st Century As I age I have realized that the life of a young person has changed drastically in comparison to the way I grew up. When I was thirteen I did not have a cell phone, and the internet was an uncommon luxury; not a customary part of life. Now as an adult I find that I understand less, and with time, more changes are in store for the next up and coming generation. For the past ten years I have been a youth leader at my church to teenagers from ages thirteen to twenty. I decided to conduct my observation on a church youth social gathering. The young people had gathered together at the church to play board games, however after about twenty five minutes into the beginning of the gathering the young people had not managed to actually start any of the games. Instead the girls spent their time taking pictures of themselves and each other with their phones. It was weird to watch the girls ignore each other and still communicate; they were not talking in person, but communicating on social media. In my opinion the young ladies had taken a lot of time on their appearance; having their hair, make-up, and clothing looking as though they were going out for a night on the town, and not a night of board games. The young men all high fived and fist bumped upon arrival and gathered together in a corner where they all took their phones out. The boys had brief moments of communication when they would share...
