I'm Just a Teenage Dirtbag Baby

I was listening to the radio earlier and 'Teenage Dirtbag' by Wheatus came on. For some reason it made me remember what I used to think a teenager was like- what I thought I'd be like when I was that age. I suppose my only ideas came from TV and babysitters seeing as we never had any family friends with older kids. So yer, here's what I used to think...(Just thought I'd add, I hate the word 'teenager' it just pisses me off...I'll try to avoid its use, although that may be tricky in this post!)

I used to think teenagers (there you go, 1st sentence!) were really cool- going out with their friends all the time, being all independent and rebellious :P The one on the right seems the most accurate- baggy clothes, a ponytail (or braided hair), faded jeans and a pair of these beauties...

This mainly came from my babysitters who'd come to our house, always with a load of homework to do, giving us the impression secondary school is all about 'essays' and you spend every evening writing pages and pages! Haha, we dreaded that! And they'd always be moody and a bit gothic/punky so we thought they were cool and rebellious, I wish I could see them now, I bet they were right geeks!

And they always talked about their boyfriends who I imagined would be as below...a geeky guy who they'd go out with at the weekend and I dunno rollerskate or something! I also used to think that they all smoked behind the bike shed at school...Paha I do love my stereotypical childhood views!

Haha so yeah, that's about it. Very random I know but as I said, that song reminded me of it. I sound like an old lady talking about when she was little! Ahh good times, I wish I was still a kid :P
