Hi! And welcome to Teen Scene’s November column in ENID MONTHLY. We have 2 more months left of this year, and I cannot be more thankful for those I will be leaving 2023 with and bringing into 2024. Now, I know we all know thanksgiving is in November and on the holiday, we say EVERYTHING we are thankful for, but this time I am going to tell you about every PERSON in my life that I am very lucky to have.
I would first like to recognize my parents and siblings. Without them, I would not be the young lady I am today. My mom has helped me with so many things all the way from stressful times to just silly high school drama. Without her, I wouldn’t be able to rant about my little problems and would just keep them all bottled up and who knows who they would explode all over. Next, my dad. My dad has been at every single one of my extracurricular events since I was able to walk and only missed if he was sick or had a very big court case. I don’t know a whole lot of kids my age that would be able to say that about someone. Without my dad, I would not be as caring, sympathetic, and loving as I am now. When I think about how much support he gives me, it makes me hope I can be like that for my future kids. Also, did you know that November 13th is national mom’s and dad’s day!! Lastly, my brother and sister. I am so thankful for 2 amazing siblings, and even though we might not get along sometimes, I think about them all the time. Now I know all of us who have siblings probably have a very similar bond with them but each to our own.
Now for my BEST friends who I hold very dear to my heart. This year I have become very close with some very kind, loving, beautiful, and amazing girls that I would not trade the world for. I know if you’ve read some past articles of mine, you probably already know who Mallie is, but I just have to mention her again because I love her so much, and I’m so thankful to have had a friendship for as long as ours. During the summer of my freshman year, I met this girl on the first day of cross-country practice that I had never talked to. She was very quiet, but I just knew I HAD to talk to her. Camry and I ran together for about 5 miles just talking and getting to know each other the whole time. Ever since that day, we became very close and now we are closer than ever. She is also one of the SWEETEST girls I have ever met, and I have almost never heard a negative thing come out of her mouth. Ezzi and Gabi have also come into my life during cross country season. Ezzi never fails to make me laugh and always has a smile on her face no matter how upset she is. Gabi is a senior this year and will probably be the first time I have ever cried on Senior night. She is always up for fun and FOOTBALL!! The last girl I would love to mention is Aspen. I have also already written about her in a past article, so to keep it short and sweet, I am so glad I talked to her in my Speech and Debate class because if I hadn’t, I would not have someone I could call my Ride or Die. All of these girls have made such an impact in my life, and I couldn’t be more grateful to have them.
