Ain’t I A Teenager?

Intro Sample...


Well, children, fellow teens and anyone else who happens to be here listening to me. Where there is much racket there must be something out of kilter. I believe that between parents always misjudging and grownups frequently misunderstanding the teenagers of this generation, they’ll be in a fix soon. But what’s all of this talking really about?
The older people always say that teenagers are irresponsible, that they shouldn’t be trusted with specific tasks. But I have a job. I work and make money just as they do. And ain’t I a teenager? I always make sure to complete my homework for school on time. And ain’t I a teenager? My mom usually has me buy my own things and pay for things with my own money. And ain’t I a teenager? At school, I used to be a student aid. Delivering passes and doing other jobs for the school to help it run smoothly. And ain’t I a teenager?
Then they talk about this action of a typical teen, what do they call it? Sleeping? That’s it. How does sleeping all day make teens lesser human than grownups? If I have to take a day off where I just sleep all day, then I should have the right to do so. As a teen in high school, I wake up early every day for school; I do gymnastics for a sport and work at a grocery store. Why should I feel guilty or lazy when I sleep all day when my very busy schedule and routine requires me to sleep so much?
Then the grownups claim that allrdor teenagers have a cell phone and or iphone, that all they do is text and send messages to each other all day. Where is my cell phone? Where is my cell phone? I don’t even have a cell phone let alone text all day. I am a teenager who has better things to do in his time.
Thank you all for listening to my speech! And God bless. View More »

    Growing up as a child I always heard that “money is the root of all evil”, “money can’t buy happiness”, and that “money doesn’t grow on trees”, however I feel that money makes the world go round. Without money there’s no living and we are unable to buy anything without it. Money is essential to bring all necessities and wants for a comfortable existence. However, it’s a mistake for anyone to believe that money is everything. Money gives us all that we require but money is not the only thing that we need to keep happy and fit. In the play “A Raisin in the Sun” money

    Comparison Ok, we're gonna do a little comparison right now. A lot of people have asked me why I've changed so much. Well, I have a few songs that explain pretty much every single stage I went through to become the "heartless fuck" everyone says I am. You might ask why do I use songs to describe who I am. Here's why: I have too much to say about my life. Sometimes if I say too much, it might sound corny. Other times, if I explain stuff thoroughly, some people say I exaggerate the pain. So here's exactly what I've felt in my life to make me who I am today. Family Port

    Teenage is the period of twilight between childhood and youth. So far as physic cal appearances are concerned, the period of childhood is receding and the youth is approaching. Psychologically, however, it is a great mess. Many of the tendencies and behaviour patterns of the childhood persist and create embarrassment for the teenager as well as for his parents. He appears a grown up to the outsiders, but many a time, he clings to his mother or father for support and fortifies his arguments with "my father says" or "my mother tells" which provokes an amused and at tim

    There has always been a disconnection between adolescents, adults, and society. However, I believe the interaction between adolescents and adults today has become distinct. Adolescents are those from the age of 13-19. The hardest part about being a teen, is peer Pressure. The constant worrying about their looks, clothes and possessions that other kids have. They also worry about their relationships do they have enough friends, do they have girlfriend/boyfriend. Finally, they worry if they measure up to their parents expectations.

    Teenage Depression Teenage depression is an underlying illness that often goes undiagnosed. It can be considered a silent killer.
