Teen Interview: Jason

Each Wednesday is Wonderstruck Interview day. Hearing other people’s stories is a great way to see things from a different perspective and perhaps find something new to apply to our own lives.

I'm switching things up a little this week with our very first Wonderstruck Interview: Teen Edition! Yes, we can learn from the youth around us and it's important to listen to what they have to say. Meet Jason, my stepson. He turns 15-years-old this week.

Jason

What have you been wonderstruck by recently?

I'm not sure what wonderstruck means, but I liked watching my brother Jonas learn to walk.

What part of your day are you grateful for?

I am grateful for every morning, because you never know if you were gonna wake up.

What part of your day is tough? How do you move through it?

School is tough. It's boring and sometimes the work is hard. But I have my friends there so we work through it together.

What do you wish you were more conscious of?

I wish I was more conscious of my attitude. Sometimes I can be real mean and be talking back and I'll get in trouble because of that.

How do you stay focused on what is truly important to you?

I just focus by thinking of why I do what I do. The reasons I do things and stuff like that. When I think of those reasons then I know what's really important to me.

About Jason:
Jason is currently on summer break preparing to enter the 10th grade. He likes baseball, video games, and harassing his parents (as teens do).

  1. What a cool guy you've got there! Seems wise beyond his 15 years. Hope he has a happy birthday this week. :)

  2. Pretty astute answers. We need to hear more teenage voices; they often aren't jaded yet, and they can be quite smart.
