10 Things Only TEENAGERS Will Understand
#01 Being Stuck In the Middle
What’s awesome about being a teenager is that you are starting to get more independent the older you get. But, it seems that you’re stuck in the age of being too old and too young at the same time.
You’re too old to go trick or treating, but too young to go to adult Halloween parties. You’re literally stuck in the middle of all the fun stuff in life, like driving, and watching cartoons without being made fun of.
#02 Everything about College Induces Stress
From studying for the Sat’s to applying for different schools, thinking about college is a handful. Everything about the next step after high school graduation can induce serious stress. Not only will you probably not know what you want to do with the rest of your life, but you may also feel like a failure for not knowing.
The good news is you aren’t alone in your dilemma; tons of teenagers are stressed about this time in their life. Relax; you don’t have to have all the answers when you’re a teen!
#03 Thinking about Prom
In the back of almost all teen’s minds is the major social event of the year, prom. It’s not only the girls who have to worry about it; guys are getting worked up as well. Throughout the year you have to figure out whom you want to ask, and how you will do it.
Seeing that asking a date to prom is such a big deal on social media, it’s just added pressure to be creative. Girls have to worry if they will even get asked, and if they do, what will they wear, and will they be nominated for prom queen? It’s all a big fuss over just one night.
#04 Dealing with Parents
Being a teen is a tricky time, going through puberty and having parents ask about everything just adds to the madness. Parents are stuck in a position of trying to parent, and trying to be a friend at the same time.
There is nothing worse than your parents trying too hard to be cool, especially if they know they are embarrassing you. What’s worse is when they ask about your love life. Like you can even know what’s going on, you’re not even sure if your crush knows you exist.
#05 Facebook Is a Necessary Evil
Facebook just seems like it is for old people. The only reason is to stay up to date with friends you made over the summer, or your family you never get to see.
When it comes to social media you’d rather spend your time on Instagram or snap-chat what’s even better is that your parents can’t even figure out snap-chat to follow you! At least, not for now!
#06 Social Rejection Is an Actual Nightmare
It gets exhausting worrying about what your friends and people around you think about you. You have to keep up with the trends, and know what’s cool, because if you don’t you may face social rejection. Being someone who is a social reject can end up being an actual nightmare.
If a friend in your circle is mad at you, and tells other people to be mad at you it can feel like a punch in the gut. The good news, there is light at the end of the tunnel, and it may take time, but the rejection won’t last a lifetime.
#07 Your Dating Life Is an Emotional Roller Coaster
From getting your crush to notice you, to over analyzing every text, your dating life is an emotional roller coaster. If your crush glances at you and smiles, it can light up your whole world. But, if they don’t even know you exist it can be completely crushing.
It’s scary enough worrying about an accidental double tap on a 47 week old Instagram post. But, how do you let them know how awesome they are in real life?
#08 MTV is overrated
OK, so you know that MTV stands for music television, and it was cool in the 80’s, but not anymore.
They don’t even show music videos, why are they still calling themselves MTV? It’s almost too obvious that they are making shows that adults think will appeal to teens, but it’s not working.
So maybe you binge watched “catfish”, that doesn’t mean the rest of the channel has anything worthwhile.
#09 We Don’t Need To Be Lectured
When you do something wrong, you know what you’re doing. What’s worse than the punishment has to sit through lecture after lecture. Parents need to know that you don’t need to be lectured about the same thing again, you understood the first time.
Even if you didn’t get it the first time, your parents will have another chance at punishing you. it’s just awful when parents want to keep dragging you through something you did wrong over and over again.
#10 Netflix Is Life
“I’ll only watch one episode, then I’ll study!” how many times have you said that, just to find yourself finishing season 1 of a new show Netflix? Now you only have 2 hours to study and get sleep before your alarm goes off to wake up for school.
When it comes to cable TV, you don’t even know or care what’s on, you’ll see it when it’s streaming online! The best part of Netflix and watching shows online, no commercials! Score!
