Journalism, Business, or Env. Engineering

Do you know where you want to go to college?

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

We don’t listen to a word that they say.

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

Sometimes teens WANT you to set boundaries.  However, other times, they just want you to give them a bit of freedom.  Believe me, that freedom normally guilt trips us into trying to make you proud, but you need to know which situation it is.

What is your favorite website?

Onemanga.com  or aimini.net

Least favorite thing about high school, most favorite thing about high school:
