I'm proud of our free public schooling availability. Everyone can get an education without having to spend money on it. Our community works together to make sure everyone goes to school, and they hope everyone graduates. We also have the opportunity to take our education as far as we want to go. College does cost money, but you can receive loans or scholarships to learn more for less money. Fortuna High has great electives that we can take to further our education in what interests us. Anyone can go to school for as many years as needed. Our home provides us with what we need to get a good job, and it helps us learn without having to spend money to do so. I am proud that I can learn more throughout the years.
One thing I would like to change about my culture is the use of technology that is taking up work and isolating us from each other. Every job is seeming to being transferred to electronics doing it. That is making less job opportunities for people who need them to make money for themselves or their family. Technology shouldn't be used as much as it is. Real life humans should take control of jobs, and technology shouldn't. Technology also seems to be isolating us from the outside world. Especially in big cities around my home, electronics seem to isolate people from one another. Everyone should stop using phones as much and really pay attention to whats around them. I also use my phone more than I probably should. I believe the technology usage should be cut down all around my culture so people can get more jobs, and they are in the moment of what is happening.

My name is Caroline Fairbanks. I am a sophomore at Fortuna High school. I have two brothers. I have a twin brother and a brother that is in college. I am a cheerleader, and that means I am on a team that stands on the sidelines for football and basketball games and I cheer on the players. At half time, we go out and perform for the fans sitting in the stands. I have two dogs and two cats. My dog named Sadie is a pug, Max is a Labrador Retriever. My cats names are Piper and Finn. My favorite food is chicken strips and french fries. My favorite song is called Too Good by artists named Drake and Rihanna. My favorite subjects in school are History and Spanish. I am going on a trip to Spain with students from my Spanish class, and they said we will be traveling to a different school to meet students. It would be so cool if the school they chose was yours. What are you like? Do you play any sports or do any fun activities? I am excited to be able to blog with students from a different school, and I think this will be a very fun experience! I hope to learn a lot about everyone, and I hope everyone has as much fun learning about eachother as I do.
