Would you be a teenager again?
NO WAY!! Not me!
I have started writing ‘Shady vs Sparky’ for teenagers and thought it might be slightly important to go through some old memorabilia to remember what it was like – yuk, yuk, yuk!!!
I found old diary entries … obsessing with boys … bitching about friends … obsessing with boys … worrying about my weight … obsessing with boys … bitching about my parents … obsessing with boys …
I found photos – remember ‘Choose life?’ you 80’s fans?
I found reports, more photos and notes from friends about boys …
Man I bloody well wish I knew about Shady and Sparky back then! I also wish my mum had been a bit braver and actually asked me what the hell was going on in my life – so I had someone to talk to – well maybe she did ( I may have told her to ‘Fuck off’) – SORRY MUM!
I realise now that I was a NORMAL teenager! If you have a teenager please tell them – “I LOVE YOU no matter what – seriously no matter what!! If you want someone to talk to I promise I will still love you no matter how obsessed with boys/girls you are (it’s normal), no matter how bitchey you are to your friends (it’s normal), no matter how obsessed with your weight you are (yep normal), and no matter how bitchey you are to me (that’s normal too)!”
