High After The Dentist

Fernando Bustos

Commentary

One of the funniest videos that I’ve seen was this YouTube video about a young boy who had gone to the dentist. When he went to the dentist he had to inhale nitrous gas which caused him to get stoned. The boy’s father decided it was a funny idea to video tape his intoxicated son. The recording showed the boy tripping out, he was seeing things, screaming and it was just too funny to keep watching, but there I sat and continued to laugh. The boy said “is this real life?” That line was the funniest because it was as if he was in another world, it’s not everyday you see a 7 yr old in that way. “I feel funny, why is this happening to me?” David the boy said. It was weird to see a young boy say these words and the look on his face that he had no idea where he was. I might not know what it’s like to be high on nitrous, but I could see how the boy was lost and out of it by the many looks on his face. He was staring into oblivion saying that he only had two fingers, the young boy was stoned on gas and seeing things that he had never seen before. The video reminds me of how people I know react to comedy, people fall over, cry out loud and sometimes just go out of it. It is always good to have a laugh about random things, and serious things too. So go out there and watch a video or do something random.

Lexapro A depression drug has been approved for people in the ages between 12 and 17 years of old with major depression disorder. “2 million teens in the us have had mdd in the past year” the company forest says. The drug was made for adults with depression disorders with the need of a way to feel better. The drug was approved in august 2002 for adults, over some studies of treating teens and their depression there has been an evaluation of having the drug used by teenagers. The company forest laboratories had been filed by U.S justice department for inappropriately promoting antidepressant drugs like Lexapro for children. What really gets my attention of this drug is that it’s an antidepressant drug for people in the ages of 12 and 17. It’s sad to find out that they have to make drugs for teen in depression.

No Wrestling Team In My High School

Head Dip

By Fernando Bustos

Commentary

I am passionate about wrestling. I remember watching it on TV and on the Olympics. By seeing these athletes toss and grapple each other I developed an interest in the sport. Since then I have started to wrestle with my brothers and then gotten yelled at by my mom for making too much noise in the house. I have always liked sports with physical contact I like using my body as a way to perform moves that seem impossible to do. It’s the rush and contact you get that gets me pumped up and ready to wrestle. I started out with wrestling in the 8th grade. When I came to high school I was so excited about getting onto the wrestling team, since I heard competition is more serious there and people are more committed to becoming better. I knew that that’s the place I wanted to be so that I could grow and become a better wrestler. Unfortunately when I talked to the director of athletics at our school I found out that we didn’t have a wrestling team, and we haven’t had one in a long time. I was disappointed that there was no team because I was really pumped up to start a higher level of sports where I would become a better wrestler.

My high school has not taken any actions to bring back the wrestling team. I think it’s really important to have a bigger variety of sports in high school since its one of the reasons why students are in involved in school. There are many students who have a passion for sports and use high school sports to become better and develop skills in life.

Teen Pregnancy

Round Table

By Sarah Hamik

It’s normal in our society to have sex at a young age. It’s more likely that teens will have sex when their intoxicated because it causes them to be attracted to the opposite sex. When you’re under the influence teens tend to want sex more than care about their safety. According to womenshealthchannel.com, approximately one-third of young women in the United States become pregnant during their teens. More than 80% of teen pregnancies are unintended and unintentional. I think that teens should be more responsible about having sex and should always be prepared for the outcome if they were not prepared. A lot of my friends are usually only half ready when having sex and end up asking me two weeks later to buy them a pregnancy test. A lot of times pregnant girls can look to the media for suggestions about alternatives for their pregnancy. They could put it up for adoption like in the movie, Juno, or they could keep the baby like they did on the TV show called “Secret life of an American Teenager”, or they could have an abortion like Kyra from the movie “Coach Carter”. Even though teens have all these choices, it still shouldn’t lead them to get pregnant unintentionally.
