I Wish To Be A Teenager
Sneaking out at three in the morning, partying late at night with my best friends, spending every summer day together, gossiping about relationship drama, and planning my goals for the future without a care in the world. We spend seven years of our life living as teenagers, that is exactly 2,555 days of our life until we have to move on from reality and transition to the real world. I believe that the time of our lives is the time that we spend as teenagers. We get to experience some of the biggest milestones in our life such as the first day of high school that you only get to live once. We get to plan and be excited about what we want to do with the rest of our lives; whether that is planning to go to your dream school or something else like traveling the world.
Although we have to start planning, we do not have to live out those dreams just yet. We are still allotted time to make mistakes, learn from them and keep developing who we want to become. I believe that making mistakes as a teenager is the best time to make them. You have older peers to look to when everything you thought went right turned out wrong in so many ways. You have time to make and correct your mistakes before they are frowned upon when you have to move onto the real world. I believe that we often take for granted what it feels like to be young.
As teenagers, especially in school we are handed endless opportunities to us on a silver platter. I believe that it is whether or not we take those opportunities and run with them while we can. You will never get another chance to be part of a club, a sport with your best friends, or just as simple as being able to go to a football game and cheer on your classmates from the stands. Living as a teenager to me seems to be the best age to live in forever. Real life as an adult has not quite started, you still get to enjoy going to school and seeing your friends and family. Once you graduate, leave your hometown, friends, and memories behind you will never relive those moments the same way again.
