    The weird thing about being a teen is

    that it feels like it lasts forever. From the moment you hit 13 you feel like hot ****. It's like, "Ohhhh yeaaaah baby I'm a teenager now!" ;) Then you quickly find out that you don't really get any credit for being a teenager at 13. Suddenly you're in high school and...

    We worry. We complain.

    We make mistakes. We don't yet know who we are. We forget out worries. We let go. We just have fun. We make these years the best of our lives. We're teenagers.
