I really don't know, like if just one day the govenment just went everyone has to have plastic suregery right now or live in the woods... I'm kind split about what I would do.

I'd like to say I'd run away, but raised in that society, it's hard to say.
If I knew the truth about the operation, I'd definitely run away, but just for the sake of keeping my face? Eh.

Wow. No reaction at all.

Post by: Emma-la on April 30, 2010, 10:26:11 PM
I would probably stay. Reasons:
1) I wouldn't know the truth about the operation and so would just go through with it
2) I'm not the rebellious type. I'd just become pretty, even if it weren't my number one fave choice

I might run away if one or all of my friends did, or if I knew the truth about the surge.

well being a special would be pretty neat.. the features on the body are radical.. but yahh we would have to get rid of our lesions. lol

 :-\ I don't know what I would do. If I knew about the lesions I would probably run away, or if my friends were all going because of course I wouldn't want to be alone... but if I didn't know about the lesions yet,  or my friends were all becoming Pretties, I would do that because, again, I wouldn't want to be alone.

i would probably run away even if i didnt know about the lesion, cause im pretty rebelious, and i would want to stay me, not (as shay says) some comity's idea of me.  also, all of my friends would probably run away too, so i would want to be with them.

Yeah, I'm kinda rebellious too. Like, now, I'm supposed to be studying (again, for the 7th hour today, even though I have no upcoming tests, quizes, or exams) but I'm here, doing this.

my final maths exam is horrendous, and none of the stuff i'm currently doing will be of use to me in later life, it feels so pointless studying for it, but i will anyway because i want good grades

thats what i'm saying. when in life are we going to need a^2+b^2=c^2?
Title: Re: What would you do? Run away or become pretty?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on May 06, 2010, 02:47:46 AM
so true tyler-wa, so much stuff in maths is pointless
eg the various facts about triangles and all the stupid formulae to work out different things about triangles  >:(  i hate maths and i have soooooo much maths homework to do  :'(

Post by: Lorelai-wa on May 06, 2010, 02:51:51 AM

I am really mad cuz our teacher left us with a hard situational problem with a sub that didn't explain what was wanted
Title: Re: What would you do? Run away or become pretty?
Post by: LoisFleem on May 08, 2010, 10:37:31 PM
ugh that really sounds bogus and nervous-making :(
Title: Re: What would you do? Run away or become pretty?
Post by: Mara-la on May 09, 2010, 12:01:19 AM
Totally! All year long we've had a sub who dosen't explain anything in science. I'm freaked about next year!
Title: Re: What would you do? Run away or become pretty?

omgee im so sorry :( It'll all work out :)

Post by: Chloe-Wa on May 09, 2010, 02:03:50 AM
if the teachers don't explain it, read through your notes at home and revision guides can be really useful, thats what i do if i'm stuck, or i speak to the teacher and ask for help... or i cry lol
Title: Re: What would you do? Run away or become pretty?
Post by: Mara-la on May 09, 2010, 02:30:33 AM
Yeah, I'm pretty good in science though. The stuff we're supposed to be learning (thank god) is water systems, which is something I've known since second grade. I'm really starting to doubt that that's what we're supposed to be learning. It's nowhere in out textbooks, and our teacher draws pictures on the board. Half the class screams "WHAT THE HELL?!?!" and the teacher yells back "OSMOS!" It's soooo bizzare.
Title: Re: What would you do? Run away or become pretty?

Post by: Mara-la on May 12, 2010, 07:57:58 AM
My only question would be: WTH would she be yellin that at the class while teaching us about other stuff?
Title: Re: What would you do? Run away or become pretty?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on May 12, 2010, 07:58:41 AM
oh, i see why she yells osmos now  ::) lol
but, that is kind of random if she's teaching about other stuff... it does fit in with a lot though

so kind of back on topic?? I just read the Giver for like the third time...i love it so much.... well the same concept goes in this book as does in the uglies series..there is a board of people that try to determine what is best for people..and there are diff communities wiff diff rules...we everthing is black and white and there are so many memories gone from the community..well in the end the main character escapes..he leaves because he knows the truth (as does those who know about the lesions)...he doesnt want his life to be controlled anymore...and outside of the communities there is talk of *Elsewhere* ...like in the uglies series it is the smoke...or what used to be of the world.....and he ends up finding it.... and it is just like we live now...i just think it is so weird that they are so similar and the main characters end up doing the same thing..... they want to save everyone..but they must escape first... its craziii... :)
