What do you want to be when you grow-up?

I have often asked myself this question and am honestly unsure. I think in general the left side of my brain is dominant so I am very interested in sociology, archaeology, psychology, and writing. I’d like a creative job involving one of these.

What is your dream job?

Ideally, I would love to be an archaeologist or a poet.

Do you know what you want to study in college?

I would like to study many things such as political science, international relations, psychology, comparative literature, sociology, and anthropology.

Do you know where you want to go to college?

I would like to go to Yale if I can get accepted.

What is the biggest misconception you think parents have about teens?

I think that parents tend to forget what it is like to be a teen. They either treat us as adults or as children, depending on the parent, but the truth is that teens are neither. We are almost like a separate species, and should be understood as such.

IF there is one thing you could tell parents about teens what would it be?

I would tell parents that teens tend to have a lot more going on in their lives than they lead on, and that as parents they would be closer to their teenager if they found ways to relate to these problems themselves.

What is your favorite website?

I would have to say that my favorite website is Google because it is the gateway to all other websites.

Least favorite thing about high school, most favorite thing about high school: (mine: least-HW, most- great teachers).

Least- the stress of the workload. Most- being surrounded by a variety of fascinating people.
