A high school teacher once said to me, “Teenagers don’t have REAL problems.” I never believed a word of it. All problems are real, at the time that they occur. Looking back, we may laugh on some of the things we’ve done, though we may not have been laughing at the time. Just like now, when we disgrace a national tragedy with a poorly executed historical fiction based on it, it will be done with current events . . .But these national things, as important as they are . . . bear no relevance to us. The pressure put on by peers is what is important now. The daily goals we set when we’re young are great things, and will change when the time is right. You have no idea how great it is to not have to deal with other people surrounding you, people you may or may not like, people with similar or dissimilar interests. But you will know, and that’s the best thing about it. When you go to college, at least you’ll be with people who are like-minded, rather than just the people who may live around you.
