    I haaaate being a teen cuz rarely anyone

    understands you and everyone lies to you. Not to mention I hate being told what to do. I'm old enough to know what to do without being told.

    I will only be a teenager

    for one more year and I never enjoyed my teenage years. Thinking about how much I've missed out just depresses me so much. And since I'm already 18 and technically an adult there's no way to get back the normal life I should have experienced. I hate my parents they in large...

    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.

    Being 17 is so weird.

    ..It's like an awkward stage between "child" and "adult"... I'm not digging it, I just wanna be 18 already haha

    My 16th birthday is this Friday

    and I'm not doing anything. In fact, everyone is going out of town for something else. I'm not important anyways, so I don't know why I'm so upset they won't stay.

    A couple days ago I was on the porch of a

    family friend's beach house in a little resort. (We had to pay, we just got a deal on it. Ok that was unnecessary to the story) it was 1 am and I was having a cigarette. Well I hear a bunch of teenagers blasting music going to the pool and they passed me on their way. A dude...

    It is the most confusing thing being a teenager.

    You are treated like a child Yet expected to act like an adult

    and I am so so excited, it's such a big milestone and I cannot wait - I can drive, I can legally move out (although I'm not ready for that, the thought is refreshing) and there's so many other things I'm able to do when I'm 16. it'll put less strain on my relationship and ugh I...

    and things are looking up! I finally got my permit after atleast a year of procrastinating about it, I'm going to talk to a very trusted of mine about my problems face to face soon. (See my most recent experience.) And I finally cleaned the whole house by myself. I'm also going...

    Some teens want alcohol,

    others want drugs, but all I honestly want is food and a good nap.

    Being a teenager is hard,

    harder than some can imagine, harder than some can remember. It's those years you'll never forget, though you sometimes wish you could wipe away. They seem to last forever but when you look back, they went by so fast. Being a teenager is falling in love too fast and too hard...

    Well, I wouldn't exactly say I am a typical

    teenager at all. I'm kind of proud of that to be honest. Everyone in school is the same: same hair, same clothes, same makeup, same lousy attitude. There is no more individuality these days. Even their personalities are the same. All they do is gossip and insult people behind...
