Whatever it is that you want to be when you graduate college, you basically have the same set of rules as everyone else. Be a good kid and earn good grades! You learned in kindergarten to play nice and don't talk, if you don't have anything nice to say. Since you've created your Facebook account, you've been lectured on being "smart" about what you put out on the internet. Be safe while you drive, and don't accelerate over the speed limit. Live above the influence and so on. One of the things that keep you from posting nasty pictures, going on a drinking binge, etc. is if you do these things, you hurt your chances at the college of your choice. If you hurt your opportunities at college, you hurt your career and it goes on and on.
So putting that in mind, the thought of any actor/actress/ athlete/ musician/ artist you see in the media doing drugs, drinking, speeding, abuse, and other law breaking is completely out of the question! They have their lives figured out. They've got high paying jobs and a spotlight on them... We all know however, that this is not the case. Miley Cyrus: star of children's show, Hannah Montana. Chris Brown: popular R&B singer. Michael Phelps: 16 time Olympic Medalist. With people like this, who are so high up in society, you'd think they have respectable lives. However I'm sure you all know about what these stars do in their free time... What they do completely contradicts what we've been told not to do, in order to become successful in life. These people are adults with careers. My dad always tells me to work hard at your career and do good at your job, because you don't get many chances to mess up, like you did when you were a kid. How come these people get let off the hook each time we find a picture of them breaking laws in the newspaper? What gives them protection that enables them to keep their jobs in front of the public eye? Or are their private lives none of our business, putting into consideration the laws they break? How would feel if you found out your idol wasn't as pleasant as they looked?
Judy Garland (Dorothy from Wizard or Oz), Al Gore (Inconvenient Truth), John Belushi ("TOGA TOGA" Animal House)... They did what?
