Teen Topics: to the Tune of Characters 5/4/2021
Over the years, we can grow stagnant. In an effort to try a new spin on things for the future of the blog, I’m going to be trying to do something different. I want to focus less on being a blogger, more on being an author. This decision has come about from various happenings in my life and changes in the world around us. I’m a teen author and want to encourage young people to visit my blog as well as others from all walks of life. I hope this doesn’t disappoint some of you, but I realize it may. I’ve enjoyed the success of the blog up to this point. I simply want to reach out to those who may wish to read me when I get published.
So, without further ado: Teen Topics to the Tune of Characters
This week: bffs and how somehow the oddest friends make the best friends.
How did you two meet?
Lenore: “Class assignment.”
Jori: “Her group bullied me in the hallways.”
What was the deciding factor to bring about the friendship?
Lenore shrugs. “We needed each other.”
Jori: “She seemed so breakable. Like me at times. At first, I figured she was doing an act. Pretending to like me just so I’d do the homework for her. But—she really surprised me.”
“She stood up for me. Knowing it could wreck her world.”
“Well, I couldn’t let them hurt her anymore. I’d been in her position. Not from the school clique but—others.” She wiped a tear away. “I just didn’t want to see her end up in a dark closet. Crying her guts out.”
What do you appreciate most about each other?
Jori: “Her kindness. She’s part of such a large group. Instead of being the queen bee I thought she was, she curbed the others desire to pummel me. At last, I’m making friends with those I didn’t think I ever would. I get to be around a guy I didn’t have a hope of doing so, months before. Even if he never acknowledges my existence, it’s been worth it.”
Lenore: “Give him time. Give them all time. They’ll see what I see. Someone to stand beside me when everything falls apart.
