Kids These Days! is pleased to introduce the newest addition to our line-up of blogging stars. Today meet Patrick Walgren. He's about to be a senior in high school and he'll take us with him on that exciting ride starting this summer. Below we asked him to write a little intro about himself. Welcome, Patrick!
I am currently writing this while sitting on a beach in Damgan, France, where I'll be spending 6 weeks of my summer practicing my international suave. At home in Anchorage, I am captain of the Service High Tennis Team, as well one of the goalies for the Hockey Team. Also, I am in National Honor Society and an avid Frolfer (that’s Frisbee + golf) and Volleyballer.
I want to write this blog because I think I have a unique view on life as an Alaskan teenager, as well as a partially accurate view of the world. I think Senior year in high school is important because it is when most people grow up into fully-fledged adults (getting jobs, moving out, etc.) and it is when they start to think like adults as well. Right now, I'm on the edge of getting to college and then... the rest of my life.
