New hair cut! #lovelife #newdo #redheadlife
Jessica, a 14-year-old freshman and Liam a 16-year- old sophomore were excited for the first day of Sean C. Jamieson public high school. Jessica was an average B student but was aiming to get straight A's. Liam was a straight A student and wanted to make sure he stayed on the honour roll this year.
Jessica takes time everyday to make sure she understands what she has learnt that day. She sacrifices her social life to make sure she gets good grades.
Unfortunately Liam has been sucked into the world of social media, constantly posting selfies and looking up the latest trends on fashion and popular trends. Liam has ignored his school work focusing on his new friends.
4. Jess is becoming depressed because she feels lonely and not wanted with no friends or a support system at home. Her dad is unable to work due to his sickness, and her mom focuses most of her time on work, paying bills and taking care of her sick dad. Jess writes on her private blog about her feelings, comparing herself to other girls she defines 'perfect,' and negatively viewing herself.
Liam's focus being dedicated to social media has started to show in his school grades. Once being a straight A student, he receives his report card showing C grades across the board. He thought that since his previous grades were high that he never needed to follow up on assignments and tests. Most of his time has been occupied with social media and has not been completing assignments on time.
Liam has started to neglect everything in his life so that he can depict the perfect image of himself on social media. He is easily distracted with what others are doing and how he portrays himself online. Due to all the online influence, he starts hanging out with the wrong crowd, going to parties and doing drugs.
