Hi, The Teen Spirit!

My name’s Dylan. I’m seventeen years old. I live in Manchester, but I come from Edinburgh. I’m a student. I go to the University of Manchester every day. I study there with my friends. I like Manchester, but it’s a little boring. I want to have more entertainment here, more places to have fun with my friends. Well, at least, I have football. I love football! I play every weekend.
