               There are many factors that weigh a heavy influence on a student’s academic success. Sleep, time management, and teacher selection are just a few. But in college, not all of these things are easy to satisfy. And when it comes to choosing classes, these things are often priorities. But one of the things that most students don’t consider when choosing a class is the amount of learners are also in the class with them. This is a major factor and its importance has not gone unnoticed.

When it comes to college, sleep is one of those things a student can’t ever seem to get enough of. Whether it’s pulling an all-nighter studying or an all-nighter partying, messing with your sleep schedule and your quality of sleep can drastically affect your learning potential. Sleep isn’t just important for school, it is also important for your health.

In this case, published in the Journal of Advance Nursing in 1998, there is a woman named Susan that does not value her life anymore and wants to die. Before judging, here is a little back ground on Susan. Susan is 27 years old lawyer, well-traveled and liked skiing. She was engaged to a man named John. One day they ended up in a car crash. John died but Susan survived but became paralyzed from the neck down. Susan spent many months assessing her situation and decided it was worthless. She could not do anything and at that point was just wasting resources.

In my Gendered World Views class, we recently learned about the relation between sports and hegemonic masculinity. What stuck out to me is a certain part of a reading derived from Handbook of Studies on Man and Masculinities where Michael Messner talks about men's health in sports. The reason I choose to talk about this subject is because I don't believe I've ever given conscious thought to the fact that sport and health, contrary to popular belief, are often not synonymous.

What happens to a balloon when you blow too much air into it? Easy, it explodes. If this is such a simple concept to grasp, then why is it so complex to even consider that men as human beings cannot possibly internalize all of their emotions without exploding as well?

I would like to take a closer look at one specific way, anorexia, that the media’s portrayal of what women are supposed to be like is affecting young woman. This topic is especially important to me because I am part of the group of young women who bought into the lie that the skinnier you are the happier and more beautiful you will consequently be. To control my eating became the focus of my every day life and instead of obtaining what the media promised me I lost what I most desired. Thankfully I have since said no to the lies and have chosen a healthier lifestyle.
