Good is Not So Good

Good is Not So Good

I don’t know about some people but I get a happy mouth watering sensation when I open a new bag of flaming hots. Flaming hots is one of my favorite chips but there is a down side of eating flaming hot. The disadvantage of eating flaming hot is when you done eating chip you will have a nasty after taste in your mouth and that will cause you to have bad breath. When you eat too many the chips will give you a really bad stomach ache because corn meal, ferrous sulfate, niacin, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, and folic acid those ingredients cause your stomach to have a burning sensation.
Flaming hot are high in fat, calories, and basically has no type if healthy nutrition. One bag of flaming hot is 160 calories and 250 milligrams of salt. When it’s time to take a bowel movement most people are complaining they have a burning sensation in the butt or they think their butt is on fire because they are eating too much flaming hot. What is really happening while your taking a bowel movement is cancerous growths in the colon, rectum and appendix of the lining of the colon swollen vein or group of veins in the area of the butt. Witch can cause colorectal cancer, colon cancer or large bowel cancer.


My junior year expectations

                                                                                                            Next Year


            August 2013 I will be a junior in high school. My junior year expectations are to have at least a 3.0 as my grade point average. My expectations for my ACT scores are to have at least a 23. I want my junior year to be easy and as successful as possible. I’m going to work my hardest to fulfill my expectations.

            There are many ways I’m going to fulfill my expectations. My sophomore, year I was always late to school, because I don’t like to be on time liked to be on time. Being late all the time caused my grades to drop and not be as high as they could have been.  I was missing out on educational time that could have been spent doing my work. I could be doing my work.  My junior year I’m going to come to school before the bell ring am going to give myself enough time  so I will not be late

            My sophomore, year I barley did my homework and, if I did my homework it was because it was very important or worth a lot of points. If I decided to do my homework I, would take all day to do it, I would put Facebook and my friends before my homework. My sophomore year, I rarely studied, and my study habits were terrible. My junior I’m to do my homework even if the assignment is not worth a lot of points. I’m going to do my homework before I get on Facebook and turn off my phone while I’m doing my homework. I’m not going to put my friends before my homework and class work. I’m going to pay attention in class. Also I will come to school and class on time prepared to do my work.

Chicago Summer Ratchetness

If you live in Chicago, the summer is the best time to see the most ratchet people and clothing styles. The summer of 2010 was all about Aeropostale, from the shirts to the shorts to the jogging pants. If you had anything Aeropostale, you were a part of this 2010 tread. The summer of 2011 brought big flowers and bright colors. Anything that was like a highlighter color was a part of that tread for the summer.

The summer of 2012 was all about jean jackets. Boys would wear their jean jackets with no shirt, some cargos with low tops with some all-white air force ones. The girls would wear their jean jackets with super small tank tops or just a bra that is very ratchet. 90% females were wearing red Chuck Taylors with a shirt that was too small and showed their stomachs or shirt that were too big they almost fell off. The most ratchet hairs style of 2012 was the extra super nasty looking long pony tails that came down a person back and down to the butt or lower.

The most ratchet place you could go in the summer time is 63 Street Beach everybody goes to that beach and you can see some of the most ratchet things there like ladies wearing pink, blue, and orange poetic justice. Women with swim suit too tight or too big not were wearing a swim suit at all. Some people wear a big white t- shirt with no bra or anything else underneath. The men would wear their underwear and play in the water. The other thing you will see at 63 Beach is people fighting, shooting and women weave on the ground. I just hope 2013 summer is better than the following summers and more people learn more fashion tips and don’t go outside looking ratchet.

A Domestic Leaves Fredrick with Blood on his Hands

Nova Henry was in love with her ex-lover basketball player Eddy Curry. Nova Henry and Eddy Curry were going through a child custody battle.  Nova Henry was 24 years old, she had three year old son, and a ten month daughter Ava.

Many of you may be wondering who is Fredrick Goings?  Goings is a forty year old attorney from Chicago that started out as the attorney who represented Nova Henry. Now Goings is being convicted of two counts of first degree murder. Quite the shock! Fredrick Goings killed Henry and her daughter in cold blood.

It seems Henry and Goings had a personal relationship and professional relationship, but at some point Nova decided to end it. She moved out with her and Curry’s two children. Goings later shot Henry in her home while she was holding her daughter Ava. Henry and Curry’s son Noah, was found wasn’t harmed. Why?

At the trial Goings’ attorneys argued there was no physical evidence linking him to Nova Henry and Ava Henry murders. Fredrick Goings also accused Chicago police investigators of failing to seriously weigh other possible suspects in the double murders. Yolan Henry testified that she found her surviving grandson, with the bodies of his sister and mother, and that he told her, “Fredrick did it.”

Did you know nearly 4,000 women die each year due to domestic violence?

Domestic Violence must end.
