Being in style with the latest fashions is important for some people, but not for me. After I wake up and drag myself out of bed, I change into my clothes for the day. I usually wear a pair of jeans and a t-shirt to school. If it’s a little cool outside, I might throw on a sweat shirt or sweater. Then, I put on my shoes, and I’m out the door. Young people my age tend to follow the latest fashions because they want to fit in. My mom is just glad if I don’t wear the same shirt three days in a row. What can you expect from a teenager?
