HELLO my fellow LATWEENOS!!! We hope that your BACK 2 School week is going smoothly and that you are all ready to hit those books!
We would like to introduce you guys to Jonny, our LATWEENO intern and his new weekly section, CHRONICLES OF JONNY: A REAL LATWEENO. We hope that you enjoy Jonny's section and provide us with your feedback. ENJOY and GOOD LUCK with the upcoming school year!
My name is Jonny. I am a 17 year old Latweeno and at this point all I can think about is college. I am entering my junior year this September and it scares the C**p out of me. I know I still have a bit of time before I have to really worry about it but it still scares me because I know freshman who are already applying. I think I just need to chill and just take things one headache at a time.
So school is about to start and all of my friends are getting back now. They all coming back from the most exotic places. I spent my summer working. Didn't hang out with friends from school too much, so it's good that they're back. It has been fun hanging out with all of them but everything seems different. People who I used to love hanging out with aren't the same anymore. It's kind of hard to explain so please try and bear with me. Well lets start with my friend Travis. He broke up with his girlfriend Lusi. He's been doing some pretty reckless S**t ever since. He's just not the same and he swears he's fine but he doesn't want to talk about it. I'm really worried about him cause he's one of my best friends. But i guess I'll have to wait till he wants my help.
Now for Matt. Matt has been my best friend for the past 2 years. We've been through alot together and do everything together. But now all he wants to do is hang out with this other group of kids and completly ignores me.
My girlfriend Emily is acting different too. We've been seeing each other for the past 4 months. Things were going really well with us but now I'm not too sure. We've been spending less and less time together and I can't decide whether that's a good thing or not. Because I've slowly been disillusioned with teenage love. I think at my age I shouldn't be in a long term relationship. I mean your only young once. I think I should be using this time to see what's out there. Maybe I'll like that more. But at the same time I've developed real feelings for her. I really like her... maybe even more. But isn't it always true love until it's over?
Those are just a few examples anyway.
Well I guess one thing is for sure. This year is gonna be really different.
