Plastic Surgery: Beauty or Beast

Plastic surgery is a way of saying you don’t like the way your body is or you don’t like the way you look, but why change it to something worse than what it is now. I’ve seen the effects of plastic surgery and it is not beautiful. I mean some plastic surgery can be a success, and some may create a real monster.
Changing Your Body
Changing your body can be irritating and it can make your body parts look phony by how many times you go back for more that it’s like a drug that you cannot wear off. You don’t know what tools or drugs these people use while you’re asleep. Anything can be done. You can get raped, killed, catch a disease from whatever they use, or they can do childish things and make you look like something you didn’t want to look like.
Changing Your Appearance
If you don’t like the way you look don’t make yourself look worse than what you look like, that’s wrong. You should accept that you are beautiful no one can tell you you’re not. Some people are crazy and jealous of you, so they’ll tell you anything to get you to change yourself. Don’t let anyone motivate you to do something you don’t want to do.

What Really Happened At The Military Ball?

Why is everyone wondering how the military ball went? I’ll tell you a good short story of how it went. When I got there on Friday, April 12, 2013 it was a normal lovely night for a military ball. The cadets were laughing, talking, and joking around until 1sg. Jackson told us to take seats because the ball was about to begin. It took time for Ms. Wells and the other staff to get there. 1sg. Jackson had Mr. Clayton there as Big DeBo fresh, straight out of prison and ready to take down any unwanted guests. It was great. We sat and ate properly. 1sg. Jackson announced the Prince, Princess; King and Queen.
The odd part of the night was still to come.
Who knew that their restroom was a part time barbershop? I walked in and thought I was going to die. There was a chair in the middle of the restroom that looked like they just got finish torturing someone. I had to pull one of my associates to the side and said, “Is this restroom a barbershop or torture room?”
1sg. Jackson had the lady bartender open the bar so we could get our “kiddie drinks.” After all of that, more cadets came and West Side Presswood arrived. Now, don’t take me for a joke when I say that this guy came in with his west side swagger like “wat up dough.” I said, “Ok.” He only came for a few minutes and left because he had to take care of some business. WEST SIDE!
Then 1sg. Jackson told the DJ to play our street music, and everybody hit the dance floor. I was surprised to see certain people sitting and not dancing, but everybody and they mamas were Turnt Up for the rest of the ball. 1sg. Jackson even hit the stage and had the crowd moving. I know who to invite to my next party! 1sg. Jackson and the freshman of course.
We took our pictures and danced some more. One of my brothers got his heart broken that night, but he still left with two beautiful young ladies. I’m glad he kept his head up and not down in those clouds.
Know, for all my people that were Turnt Up that night this shout out is for you all, including 1sg. Jackson! You were Turnt Up. I’d like to send a special shout out to the beautiful ladies who came out.
Turn Up, Turn Up, Turn Up!

Karriem Leaves with No Goodbyes

Why did Mr. Karriem leave? No one knows. He was the best chemistry teacher I’ve known since I enrolled in South Shore International. He had no problems with any of his students. Mr. Karriem was a “fun work” and “hustle hard” kind of teacher. He always got the work done on time-no late days, but only for projects. Some students in the school nicknamed him Mr. Dubois because he looks like Tom off the Boondocks cartoon. He left without saying goodbye, or that he was being transferred to another school, or that he got a better job. It’s like he left in a hurry to get away from us. What did we do Mr. Dubois?
After a good teacher like Mr. Karriem leaves without saying anything to someone, it affected students grades. If Mr. Karriem would have stayed, the students would have work and would have continued to get better grades in his class. It was something else about Mr. Karriem that helped the students get better grades – he took his time by explaining and demonstrating what he wanted to be done.
When Mr. Karriem was here, everyone he taught in all of his class had a passing grade. No one had a failing grade. Why leave and have our grades mess up when most of us are on the verge having an “A” or “B.” Looks like we still need to learn how to take responsibility.
If Mr. Karriem was still here we wouldn’t have so many Subs’ coming in telling us the wrong things to do on our work, and not knowing how to keep the balance in the class. Now it’s chaos!

To Mr. Karriem we hope you choose to comeback to S.S.I.C.P.
