A Controversial Blog: Birth Control

I believe the following is my first controversial blog entry. The Blog entry is unlikely to appear in a newspaper or the national news; however, in my Blog standards, it’s controversial. I’m going to express my thoughts on birth control.

I’m certain some pre-teenage girls their junior high school don’t teach birth control. I think all junior high schools must teach birth control to girls. Sex is everywhere, and teenage girls need the knowledge to deal with today’s way of living. Teach the girls birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancies and potential problems being a teenage mom. There is nothing embarrassed teaching sex. Watch primetime TV, shop in a mall, and read magazines. Sex is involved. If it’s sex in class, the girls pay attention. Teach the girls correctly the first time to avoid future problems.

Isn’t teaching the girls birth control going to increase the teenage sex rates? My answer is teaching birth control is going to lower the teenage pregnancy rates. The girls must learn what’s like having a baby. Raising a child is hard work, requires lots of time, and is expensive no matter their living class, status, or income. The girls learn what happens when they have sex and what happens if something goes wrong. What about virginity? That’s another discussion *___* Must junior high schools teach sex to boys? The short answer is yes.

The girls need to know the information to make the correct choices and prevent regrets. When the girls have the knowledge, they have the power and the strength to deal with today’s lifestyle.

Secondary Priorities Is Priority Week

Last weekend, I helped my Dad and brother complete errands. All I did was help them, watch some football Sunday after dinner, and sleep. I didn’t read The Age Of Turbulence by Alan Greenspan (my current book), I didn’t watch Heroes Season 1, I didn’t learn Crystal Reports, and I didn’t do laundry which I needed to do.

Honestly speaking, helping my Dad and brother was something different. It was two days taking a break from the usual reading a book, learning Crystal Reports, cooking dinner, downloading fansubs, downloading music, and whatever else usual I can’t think of currently >__< I also got at least 8 hours of sleep Saturday night and Sunday night. When was the last time I got a good night sleep two nights in a row? Last weekend was refreshing and a reset for me. Last weekend was taking my mind off work, Crystal Reports, priorities and my weekly worries.

I continue the refresh weekend to the week of October 1, 2007 doing anything except reading Age Of Turbulence, learning Crystal Reports, and watching Heroes. Anything secondary priority is priority for the week. The list of activities include laundry and ironing, finishing my bills, updating my webpage, backing up my files, cleaning my sun glasses and driving glasses, downloading mp3 because I didn’t last week, and preparing my home PC to play Team Fortress 2 my friend got my interested. Oh, I’m going to the gym because I had a bad gym workout last week ;-)

Tired of the usual weekdays and weekends? Take your secondary priorities and make them a priority for the week, or maybe two weeks :]
