First Lady Michelle Obama & Glamour Magazine
Michelle Obama covers the November issue of Glamour and she gave some great dating advice.

“Cute’s good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it’s, Who are you as a person? Don’t look at the bank book or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul. When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good. … You shouldn’t be in a relationship with somebody who doesn’t make you completely happy and make you feel whole.”

About Teen Suicide

What do you live for? I live for the future. I see a daughter, a husband, and a great career. I live to make my mother happy. I live to see the faces of my friends and boyfriend everyday. I live to sing, dance, create. I live to travel the world. I live for the idea that I'll someday make a huge change in the world.

There are certain things that we all live for. But some hold on to that one certain thing that keep them going. Whether it be their little brother that needs guidance, their love for their puppy that they feel they need to take of, or their love for mathematics... Everyone lives for something.

So what happens when that one thing that you thought you couldn't live without, that one thing that you lived for, is suddenly taken away from you. It's human nature to carry on until you can't anymore. But it's harder for some. They find no reasons to push forward. They don't have that puppy, that little brother, that vision of the future. They feel that their left with absolutely nothing. They feel that this pain can only be eased in the result of their death.

We can't judge a suicidal person and say "oh they're dumb and need to get over it." I call this ignorance. Depression is a disease.

The Facts:Suicide is the third-leading cause of death for 15- to 24-year-olds.
Nearly 5,000 teenagers commit suicide each year.
White males have the highest increase in suicide.
The ratio of male to female suicides is four to one; however, young women attempt suicide four times more frequently.


What should you do?

-If someone you know brings up the subject of suicide, take them seriously.
-Reassure them that they have someone to turn to, a friend to help them.
-Don’t lecture about the reasons a person has to live, listen to them.
-Contact someone for help. Depressive disorders respond well to psychotherapy treatments or the appropriate medications.

Most teens interviewed after making a suicide attempt say that they did it because they were trying to escape from a situation that seemed impossible to deal with or to get relief from really bad thoughts or feelings.

Don't judge. Just help.

Chicago HighScool: 115 Girls Preganant
CBS 2 News did a report on the 115 girls (either pregnant or already mothers) out of 800 total girls at Paul Robeson Highschool in Chicago, Ill (My Hometown). One in eight of their students are pregnant.

My opinion: WTF. What ever happened to condoms? If you see a large population of your friends knocked up, wouldn't that turn you away from having unsafe sex? But of course who am I to say. lol

Whats your opinion?

Model Does Black Face for French Vogue

French Vogue did a shoot with Dutch model Lara Stone. She portrayed a woman of color. I wonder why they just didn't use a REAL black model.

Painting white people black for the entertainment of other white people is offensive in ways that stand entirely apart from cultural context. France and Australia may not have the United States’ particular history of minstrel shows as a form of popular entertainment going back to the 19th century, but something about the act of portraying a white woman as black ought to sound an alarm, somewhere.
