We all want to grow up so quickly, whether it is because we want that freedom that comes from being an adult, or maybe we want to get into the big wide world and take it by storm, however, now we’re all grown up, we actually realise that adulthood probably isn’t all that it was cracked up to be.
When I look at my teenage years, I sit there and think, we had it so easy, compared to this whole growing up and being an adult malarkey I’d rather go back to been a teen! So what exactly do I miss about being a teenager?
1. Seeing my best friends everyday.
That was one of the best feelings ever knowing I was going to see my best friends. Knowing that I could have had the world’s worst morning possible and my best friends would be there making me smile, making everything better and making me laugh so hard I would forget everything in an instant.
2. Non – uniform days.
We were forever waiting for some of the best news possible, non uniform days! That would be the day where you would hope that someone wasn’t going to be wearing the same thing as you, but also making sure that you were looking your most fabulous especially if you were going to be seeing someone you had a crush on!
3. Being in the school bubble.
When you were at school, it literally left you feeling in a little bubble, like the world revolved around you in every way possible! You walk along, waving to people you know, but not only that you feel like the queen.
4. The crazy romances.
Remember when you started to like someone, and you would be constantly thinking about what could be going through their heads, but not only that, have a huge analysis of their partners or who they’ve been flirting with.
5. Having a time to be home by.
Honestly it’s lovely to have freedom, it really is, but sometimes having those boundaries are something I genuinely miss so much! If I was late I would get into so much trouble but that was okay because I managed to get a few more minutes being out!
I loved P.E for one reason, me and my best friend spent most of the time laughing and giggling! We actually have some photos of when we were supposed to be in P.E but instead were outside the sports hall taking photos. Sorry Mrs Tucker!
7. Watching chick flicks at sleepovers.
I haven’t had a sleepover in so long, and being able to watch amazing chick flicks like confessions of a teenage drama queen, mean girls, a cinderella’s story, all of those and watching them constantly even if we knew all the words.
8. Having the TV rolled into class.
When you had that TV rolled into class, you know for a fact that it’s going to be a lesson that you never want to end. Even if it was a film that you had never seen, you could at least sit with your phone underneath your blazer and text!
9. Those firsts.
First kisses, first crush, first hand hold, first time getting drunk, first party! Everything about them was so exciting, it was amazing, and a fantastic feeling, there was nothing that I loved more!
10. Having very few responsibilities.
Remember the times when you didn’t have to worry about any bills coming out and the biggest worry was whether or not you were going to be able to go out at the weekend? Gosh those were the best days right?
11. Constantly being bored.
I used to be bored all of the time, you didn’t want to do anything, or if you did, it wasn’t exactly going to be doing the chores that you were probably supposed to do. Not only that having homework was another thing that you didn’t want to do. Being an adult not having anything to do of a weekend is actually getting me quite excited!
12. Having a 6 week holiday.
6 weeks worth of lay ins, how good does that sound? Having 6 weeks of going out, spending time with friends and family and no homework, it was the absolute dream. The only problem with it was the 6 weeks always went too quick!
