Kimberly Caldwell Bush English 132 2, February 2008 Teen Pregnancy in a Perfect Society…virtually nonexistent, or is it? It is dark in here. I have been living here, growing here for I cannot remember how many days. I can hear people around me fighting. One voice I have come to know and love as my mother. The other I have decided is her mother. They always fight about me, and it always ends the same way. My mother always goes to her room crying. She says, “It’s not fair, It’s my baby”, over and over again until she falls to sleep. I feel so horrible. I do not know what to do. What can I do? I am just a baby. I am not even born yet.

Ideally in a perfect society teenagers do and act just how your average teenager should. They should focus on finishing school. If a teenager drinks, does drugs, or even thinks about having sex they are automatically thrown into the “bad egg” category. Teenagers are judged based on predetermined standards that have been set out for them for generations. The timeline for any adolescent in the eyes of someone striving for perfection is that first you should finish high school and maybe while in school you can get yourself a job too.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
