The title of this post is something I heard someone say I while ago... I was walking home from school, and it was a teenage boy saying it to another teenage boy. The reason it stuck in my head is because it seemed like such a angsty and teenage thing to say, and being teenage and angsty is like... a permanent vibe for me. Eva's recent post about this kinda freaked me out, because, well... it is exactly exactly what I'm feeling, and I could have written it myself! Being a teenager (and in your early twenties) surely must be the best time of your life. When else do you not have to worry about feeding a family and paying the mortgage and getting the best deal for car insurance, but can still go wherever the hell you want after school; eat as much junk as you like and scream along to X-Ray Spex (when else can you dance like Poly Styrene-love her style!) at the top of your voice?
So it's wonderful. I'm 14, and I should be living my life. But you know, that's exactly what I feel like I'm not doing...I kind of just stay at home all the time...with like...no social life. I just feel pretty unsatisfied with my life right now, like I'm not making the most of my youth. But the New Year's here, and it seems like a pretty good time to make some changes. Being more crazy and wild and teenage is my main New Years Resolution out of many. Instead of boring you with my full list, however, I'll share with you the list of 'more teenagey things I'm going to start doing'. (or just more fun things in general)
- When it rains, go outside and run around and sing and dance
- Make everyday different!
- Make mix cds for everyone and everything
- Watch more angsty teenage films with awesome teenage characters I can relate to and then obbsess about them for the next week
- Decorate my room as amazingly as this
- Go places with friends n shit
Number 2 is an important one because the other day I realized EVERYDAY IS THE SAME. I wrote this diary entry about it; I hope you can read my hand writing. I also just think the idea of posting a diary entry is very clever and fits in with the vibes.
