Heather never stands up for Mel when people show negative attitudes toward her. One day, she hurts Melinda by saying they should not be friends anymore. However, that broken friendship makes Melinda’s new skin finally grafted. She becomes tougher when she responds to the request for help from Heather, “No, I won’t help you” (179). Then she thinks, “Does she want to know the truth, that she’s self-centered and cold?” (179).
[With her] left impaired [she] sailed in with [her] right”(112). Again, this shows immaturity because Scout is unable to control her emotions because she Is just a little girl who acts before she thinks. Finally, Scout exhibits immaturity when she thinks Calpurnia likes Jem better. Scout says to Atticus “she likes Jem better’n she likes me, anyway I conclude… and suggest… that [you] lose no time in packing her off”(33). Scout said this after Calpurnia punished her.
She does not care what the people in her school thinks of her as she describes them as idiots who has pathetic, empty, meaningless and consumer-driven lives. Like Kat, I also believe that school is one, big popularity competition and that people shouldn't be so superficial. Her motto is “you don't always have to be who they want you to be”. She also tends to be insensitive to other peoples feelings, as she answers Patrick's advances sarcastically and with indifference in the beginning. This is mainly because
Watson and Crick secretly viewed Photo 51, never gave Franklin credit, and ruined Franklins image in Watson’s book he published. During the time, female scientists, such as Rosalind Franklin were treated very poorly. For example, they were forced to leave the campus during lunch, as they were not allowed in the cafeteria. Also, her co-workers disliked her and Wilkins was disgruntled to learn he was not in charge of Franklin and she was in fact on her own research. After Franklin printed Photo 51, Wilkins decided it would be acceptable to secretly show Watson and Crick, who quickly decided to use the photo to their advantage.
...But everyone I know is either shouting or dancing around like wild or beating up one another. Do you notice how people hurt each other nowadays?’ ‘You sound so very old.’ ‘Sometimes I’m ancient. I’m afraid of children my own age.’ (26-27) Because she is deemed “antisocial,” she has completely given up on making friends at school. She accepts the fact that she does not like what the rest of society does and sees it as a good thing. Her level of maturity is far greater than any kid, and even adult.
In the group is Alison Reynolds the misfit, Andrew Clark the jock, Brian Johnson the geek, Claire Standish the princess and John Bender the rebel. It is apparent that they all have stressed relationships with their parents, are unsure about their future and have immense pressure from their peers (Loukides, 30). Allison Reynolds is a strange, unusually silent character, who is a mystery to most people. She did not do anything to deserve detention, except that she had nothing to do on this day and decided to go into detention in order to find company. Her parents are uninvolved and ignore her.
Relationships Assignment Pamela Macintyre Question 1: Personal Power: The meaning of Personal power is your own ability to make your own decisions. For example, in the movie ‘Mean Girls’ The “Plastics” have no control over their decisions and just follow orders; Whereas Janice and Damien can choose and make their own decisions. Social Power: Mean Girls shows the social power through “The Plastics”. Regina George is described as ‘Flawless, hot and awesome’ but people just see the cover of a vindictive, backstabbing high school girl. She created a ‘Burn Book’ so she could judge them based upon money, actions, race and sexuality for example she refused to go anywhere near Janice after claiming she was a ‘lesbian’.
We are detached from the world because our lives are so busy and we are self-centered in the way that we only care about U.S. news, not what's going on outside of the country. Cady also does not partake in the typical teenage girl practices of dressing provocative, wearing make-up, and being promiscuous. By the end of the movie, after she socializes with the 'plastics', she becomes one of them inadvertently. The entire school idealizes the 'plastics'. Every girl wants to be Regina George (the queen bee) so they copy what she wears, eats, does, says, etc.
They figure out that just because you are from a different clique does not mean that you cannot get along with them. They both then figure out that they should not judge others by their social groups at school and by how they dress and act because they realize that they can be completely wrong about them. Jazz and Antonia go through some pretty bad times; when Antonia’s mom goes into the asylum to get help for depression, when Jazz quits playing piano and Mrs. Luther goes hay-wire about it. Antonia and Jazz are different, yet alike in many ways. They soon believe there is no such thing as normal because of what they have been through and what they have learned about one another.
Izzy Dix’s Suicide Izzy Dix, a 14-year old girl, was found hung by her mum on September 17th 2013, after suffering months of being bullied by those she considered her friends. The bullying happened all around her; at school, online even away from either. Ask.fm was one of the main sites where Izzy was cyber-bullied, and has, as a result, pledged a request that the site is banned – to this date the petition has received over 8,000 signatures. Her mum, Gabbi, rang her school in Brixham at least 15 times. The last time she contacted the school was the day before her daughter took her own life.
