The End is Here

Well, ladies and gentlemen, the end of the term is here. I have not finished my paper yet, but it will be done by this weekend. I am nervous to see what the grade will be on it. I hope I will do well. I loved how we did a little bit every week. That made it much less stressful. I was really suprised that we only did one paper during the whole class. Other english classes I have taken had three or four papers to write. I was not happy at first because I had to take another english class, but now I am glad I took it. The best part was reading other people's papers. I loved seeing the diverse topics within the class. Writing about childhood obesity was a boring topic compared to some of them. But I have to say, I cannot wait to write about something like this again. I love doing the research about obesity. It is completely fascinating to me. Reading about the childhood obesity epidemic makes me hypervigilant about what I feed my kids. Don't get me wrong, they still get junk every once in a while, but for the most part they are healthy little eaters. I was watching a show called "Big Kids". I think it was on Discovery Health. It followed a couple of different kids who were overweight. The one child was sent to what was basically a fat camp. It made me cry when I saw what that poor kids was going through. No child should have to feel that way about themselves. It's hard enough to feel that way about yourself when you are an adult. No child should be fat. It just shouldn't happen. I hope that boy's parents are going to take the responsibility of feeding him right and making him get outside instead of sitting at the computer or playing video games. Thanks for reading!

  1. Lynda - do you think that you will make the nutrition a part of your career? Have you ever seen the show "Huge" on ABC Family? I think it is on Sunday nights. It's about teens at a weight loss camp -- very interesting!
