the other side
To my best friend out there, I don’t think you read this blog, but no matter.
I think it’s hypocritical of parents to deem us too young, and too adult at the same time. I’m pretty sure all of us have gotten very irritated when told we’re too young to understand something, and then too old to act like a kid. This particularly applies when you’re a teenager. For arguments’ sake, you’re a child when it suits the argument, then for the same purpose you’re an adult.
The meaning of adolescence is basically becoming an adult. But we aren’t there yet.
I previously had several paragraphs here musing over why teenagers are treated like we are.
But then I realised the futility of the argument. It just goes round and round in circles.
You know, maybe the fact that we’re never treated our own age may be one of the reasons why we’re viewed as angsty, moody teenagers.
And maybe because we aren’t adults and we aren’t kids makes it so much harder for our parents to know how to treat us.
today was dreary and drizzly. it couldn’t thunderstorm or something exciting, could it? no, just constant showers.
started off the morning with a double science. jumbled up prac with victor (how were the counters supposed to work???) and the very old video on biology failed but mr k didn’t seem to care. he picked on me a couple of times though.
lunch was time well spent playing set with carmen, geofferey and ben. i’m slow at it though. after lunch we just fooled around playing cards and talking, and rkim built this awesome house of cards which he knocked down anyway. and then my japanese teacher called matthew and i off to go stamp letters. 400+ letters in less than half an hour, he managed to stamp one sideways, and i managed to stamp one upside down xD
