"Growing up. It’s a strange concept to wrap your head around, isn’t it? Once a year we all celebrate or mark some significance to our birthdays, but why? What’s the point? The only thing that’s different is that we’re one step closer to our inevitable deaths. Nothing has actually changed. The only birthday actually worth celebrating in my opinion is when you turn 18 (pastries and delicious foods are always greatly accepted and appreciated though). Why? Well for the obvious reasons, of course. You’re finally legally allowed to do the things which you’ve already been ilegally doing for the past, I don’t know, what, 3 years? Maybe more, maybe less, it really all depends on how “grown up” you thought you were as a teen. Which, lets’s be honest, no teenage kid is “all grown up”. Most of us shouldn’t even be left alone in a room with matches or a lighter, lots of things are highly flammable these days. Anyways, the teenage years, lots of things happen during these 6 short (or long?) years of your life. You grow, you stop growing. You go through internal changes, you stop going through internal changes. You like boys, you hate boys. You enjoy attending social events and experiencing things for the first time, you regret experiencing those things and swear to God you’ll never do it ever again. You love your family, you hate your family. You make up your mind, you change your mind. Basically, everyone is bipolar during their teenage years. The teenage years are also when all the pretentious people start being pretentious, like me, for example. I spend my time listening to Billie Holiday, Kanye West, watching foreign films, and continuously correcting people’s wrong pronunciation of Bon Iver. This journal entry? Extremely pretentious. It wasn’t even supposed to be this long, I could have stopped ages ago. Why haven’t I stopped? I have a chem quiz tomorrow that I really don’t want to study for, yes, I’m procrastinating. That’s another thing we teenagers tend to do a lot.
