If it wasn’t for that juvenile class I don’t think I would be thinking twice on what I do now. There were a lot of topics about bad stuff that caught my eye. But there was only 5 or so that I was most interested in. Those were driving, underage drinking, tobacco, and curfew.
First topic was underage drinking. Drinking at such a young age it’s more likely that you could get alcohol poising, blackouts or even overdose. Could cause early brain damage or even memory lost.

Last topic was curfew. This is the reason that I was put into this class. The purpose of juvenile curfew is to protect the young kids from roaming the streets at night because there is a lot of bad stuff that happens. Also they don’t want young...
