41 PROBLEMS WITH YOUNG PEOPLE…
They’re too tall: I myself am not very tall, there was one point in my life where I was the tallest girl (sometimes the tallest student in general) but not anymore and this makes me happy. But I do know what Mills is saying, some kids are giants!
They’re tattooed freaks: I don’t have ANY tattoos what-so-ever and I don’t plan on wasting the time, and money to make my body look stupid.
They’re crazy sex fiends: No sex until marriage for me!
They dress like morons: I did go through my weird “I want to be different” phase, but now I dress very nice and the only time I get a little crazy is when it’s spirit week!
They mumble all the time: I grew up with my dad yelling at me for mumbling and I joined the forensics team so my mumbling is a dead habit.
They can’t drive worth crap: I’m scared to drive so I don’t have an argument for this one.
They’re functionally illiterate: I read all the time and I’m the Editor-in-Chief of my high school paper, so take that.
They have weirdo haircuts: My hair is very normal, I don’t have spikes, abnormal colors or weird shavings into my head. Shoulder length hair is how I’m doing it right now.
They’re high on the drugs: The only drugs I do are prescription drugs (The dose I’m told to take). I’m afraid if I try illegal drugs I’ll die.
They’re so damned disrespectful: I think a lot of people are disrespectful, but I have to admit people my age are way more disrespectful then anyone I know (older than me). I have my moments where I’m completely rude and out of line, I can admit that.
They’re godless heathens: I’ll give you this one. While I’m not anti-religion, I haven’t found the religion that best suits my beliefs yet.
They pee too much: I’d like to say that I have an average bladder, how you know they pee to much concerns me! I actually think I may not pee enough…
They talk about politics: I don’t talk about things I don’t know enough about, and things I don’t really care about. Though I should being that I can vote in the next election!
They have ridiculous nicknames: The only nickname I have is Mesa, I have this nickname because my real name is Marisa (Ma-dee-suh) and my brother couldn’t pronounce that as a kid so he’s call me eeesaaa, many other people couldn’t pronounce my name either so we just added the M and Mesa has stuck ever since.
They have terrible posture: I’m a musician in band so posture is just a developed habit and I never slouch.
They all swear like sailors: No argument for you there, I swear way more than I should, even though I am working on that.
They pierce their damned faces: I only have my ears pierced and I was too young to have a say in it when it happened!
They’re all video game addicts: Most video games piss me off so I don’t waste my time with that garbage
They’re all fat-assed: I’m 140 pounds which is my average weight, even though I’d like to be at least 135.
They all have disorders: I can’t argue this one, I have ADHD but lately I’m starting to think that’s false.
They listen to rap music: Country lover, that all I have to say about that one.
They sleep all day: I usually can’t sleep in past 9 AM
They all have cell phones: So true, sometimes I love that thing, other times I wish I could chuck it out the window.
They all gamble: I never gamble, because I always think I’m going to lose.
They’re all toting guns: The only gun I’ve ever held was my dads bb gun like 4 years ago.
They’re all unisexed freaks: I don’t really know what you mean by that.
They won’t move out!: I can’t wait to move out! College baby!
They refuse to work for a living: I’d like to work because I think it will be fun to pursue a career in writing.
They’re all hooked on porn: No…?
They dance like idiots: I love dancing like no one’s watching, it’s the best way to unleash the beast!
They don’t understand romance: I HATE when people say that! I don’t think anyone really understands what romance really is. I also think it has a different definition to a lot of different people.
They drink sissy drinks: I don’t drink alcohol yet.
They never crack a book: I read books all the time!
They want everything now!: I think everyone wants to do whatever “everything” is for them now. Because everyone wants to do what makes them happy as soon as they can.
They’re damned fearless: I have a lot of fears, I think there’s a difference between fearless and stupidity.
They’re damned know it alls: I wish!!
They eat like pigs: Debatable, I think it depends on what the food is and how yummy it tastes!
They’re materialistic: False, I love nature, and the little things the world has to offer, and the big things too. Like my family, and the ability to walk again, getting an education and being surrounded by people who love me.
They have no ambition: VERY false!! I have a lot of dreams and I plan to pursue and achieve all of them!!!
They have access to too much info: That’s not on us young people, blame whoever made the internet and all the people who thought us young people should rely on the internet to get our information.
They’re afraid to get dirty: There’s nothing better than connecting with nature and getting a little dirty.
