First attempt at a blog post. Not really sure what specifically to say/blog about. Whatever the lingo is supposed to be. I am supposed to be telling you about something that “helps defeat the single story that people often tell about HS juniors at suburban schools.” To be honest, I have never really paid all that much attention to whatever rumors or stories I have heard. I have taken a very laid back approach to this kind of criticism and have seen it works out better for most everyone to ignore the few that have made said rumors. I don’t get upset or disturbed by whatever it is they might have said and no one gets their feathers ruffled. Finally the few that I have heard are either so ridiculous or so far off, that I honestly laugh when I hear them.
All in all, my solution to this issue with the single story, is to either ignore it and let people make their own judgements on you. Or you could learn to tune out the pointless critics that have no basis. But, if they do have credibility in their criticisms, you could also try and improve yourself as a person.
