Have you read my sister's blog? I just found it online, under the oh-so-creative title "Abby's Blog" and I feel the need to set the record straight:
I do NOT carry my "stupid toy guitar" around "all the time." Just in the morning when I'm feeling particularly creative. And late at night when the freshman blues hit me hard. That's when I write my best songs. Abby only hears the goofy ones I sing when I'm messing around or just want to torture her. (I am her younger brother, after all. It's in my contract.) But I really do want to be a singer/songwriter/recording artist/major rock star, and right now that guitar is the only thing I have that makes me feel like I'm getting close.
Someday I'll be old enough to get a job and make some bank for the axe of my dreams. Until then, I'll proudly bear the name of "Duffus and his Toy Guitar Band."
Hey...great idea, Abs. I think I'll start a band!
When I was a freshman, everybody tried to tell me the importance of immediately picking my "clique." For the those of you not yet in High School, it's pronounced "click" and it means a group or set of people with a common interest. Our first day of freshman year, Abby and I identified some of most obvious cliques:
The Band Geeks
Once you identify yourself with one of these groups, it's hard to switch. So I decided to steer clear all together and develop friendships with everyone. I have friends in band, friends in football, friends who play chess, friends who dance, friends who wouldn't be caught dead dancing...friends who should rethink a few of their favorite dance moves because of how ridiculous they look doing them (that means you, Abby).
I guess I'm just not interested in taking sides. I like staying neutral.
Someday, that's all gonna pay off.

Freshman guys have it rough. I'm not saying we're short, it's just that most of us haven't reached our "full height potential" yet. Someday, most of us will tower over our big sisters and call them names we just learned in Shakespeare 1O1, like "acorn" and "minimus."
Until then, we have to endure being a little bit invisible. The girls at school are all beautiful creatures who step on us with their high heels at dances and look over our heads when we try to talk to them.
Then there are guys like Logan Buchanan. He doesn't really say very much, but all the girls are crazy about him, including my sister Abby. Personally, I think it's just because he's tall enough to look them in the eye.
So until I'm taller -- like next semester -- I'm just going to bide my time and perfect my rock star air of cool, casual confidence.
That's my plan and I'm stickin' to it.
