Sometimes, it feels like everyone is falling in love with someone. However, when it comes to me, I don’t really allow myself to get mixed up in some that. It’s not that I don’t want to fall for someone, it’s just that I don’t really think I would make it okay in the dating world.
Everyone wants the cutest or the perfect person, but I think love is all about being with someone with a great attitude about life in general. There is so much more than looks or a reputation, but most teenagers my age do not seem to grasp this. We don’t know what love is to begin with. It’s more than a feeling, but a passion for someone.
Love is as confusing as a Rubik’s Cube. Sometimes you think you got it, then discover a whole side is messed up. This is just as hard to solve as figuring someone out. But then again, you don’t have to have someone “all figured out” to fall for them. Even when you’re dating someone it’s good not to know everything, because it keeps things interesting.
To me it’s all about finding someone with a great attitude and knowing just enough to know that the person is as fantastic as I am. Or close to it.
Okay, so just about every teenager has this issue of life being “hard.” But how many have two blogs, a future website, are a very reliable sports editor (without a true partner), and keep up in school while working on Saturdays. I also have to help my dad run his personal little kid soccer team.
I sometimes ask the questions “What am I doing?” or “Why am I doing half this?” and then I come to the conclusion of “videogames can always be done a Sunday after my slight load of chores” (I’m a very organized person even when things are going crazy). So I think that helps my Sunday chores.
It’s hard to juggle school and be wherever I can be in the mean time. For example, I may have a serious school time, and be exhausted when it’s over, but still go cover a sporting event. I even miss two or three days of school to get good pictures at a sporting event.
Socially, I’m as active as I can be and then some. I try to get as many days in of fun as possible. I normally don’t tell my friends how busy I am and just jump in and go to birthday parities and gatherings. Even chill out at Starbucks alone, which helps me plan out week because of the calmer atmosphere.
I’m really excited to continue next year as a sports editor and friend of the players. I’m also ready to be as fantastic of a person as I can be. To all the teenagers out there: don’t question what you’re doing. You’re just following a passion.
