Things that I like about public schools are hanging out with friends, having nice teachers, socializing, and making new friends. However, there are some bad things about public schools such as bullying, wearing an I.D. during school and state testing. Bullying is a problem because it can cause low self-esteem, stress, depression, anxiety, or suicide. Wearing an I.D. are a problem because they can be irritating and sometimes uncomfortable. State testing is a problem because we do other tests that are almost exactly the same thing just different titles. Some solutions to the bad things are having more teachers patrolling the halls just in case of bullying,wear a more comfortable lanyard for your I.D. so to where it  isn’t uncomfortable, for state testing we could take test like the E.O.C. but not a end of course test.

Life in Austin –  Imagine a city bursting with spirit. Add a vibrant, internationally renowned music, film and art scene, along with a thriving economy that leads the way in the technology, engineering and health care industries. Throw in a sparkling lake running through the center of the city, big blue skies, gleaming Texas sunshine and the natural beauty of the surrounding Hill Country.

Outdoor Recreation – From the cool, clear, spring-fed waters of Barton Springs Pools, shady Greenbelt trails, Austin is the perfect city for the active lifestyle — with tons of opportunities for swimming, rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, fishing and more. Go for a jog on the Hike and Bike trail, climb up Mount Bonnell at sunset or find some other way to explore the beauty of the Texas Hill Country.
