Did someone say “economic meltdown”?




After reading this article in the NY Times tonight I knew I had to do a post on it.

Yes if the only thing you knew about the country was based on our movies and TV shows you would have no clue we were in an economic crumble. We have the rich and spoiled plastered over our favorite TV shows and book. Who can really resist ready Gossip Girl books and reading about all of their shopping sprees and parties with their who really cares attitude. I'm not a fan of the show but I know people adore it. Along with the Clique books too I mean a private school with no uniforms and a Starbucks in their school I mean come on, I know granted sometimes you really do just want to be like this is so fake but you get so caught up in it. "Young fans of such screen fantasies seem to remain fixated on the acquisitive habits, social conventions and moral iniquities of their super-rich fictional contemporaries. In “Schooled,” Anisha Lakhani’s acidic narrative about an Upper East Side private school, swarms of seventh graders at a party kick off their high heels before descending on the dance floor. The narrator, who is their English teacher, regards the pile of footwear with a mixture of censure and awe: “Hard to believe, but there they lay, Jimmy Choos, Manolo Blahniks, Giuseppe Zanottis and Christian Louboutins — the abandoned shoes of 12-year-old girls.”" as quoted by the NY Times. Yes as the real world struggles we love seeing the life of the privileged, even if we do it just to envy them.

I have been so busy with yearbook that I haven't gotten much of a chance to post. I will more then likely have a post up on Saturday afternoon with stuff from spirit week

Bye everybody

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site.
Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
A small number of my blog readers have complained about my website not
working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
Do you have any suggestions to help fix this problem?
