As a teenager, were you the goody two shoes -every parents' & teachers' dream & other teenagers'
nightmare or the rebel, rule tester, wild children-every parents' & teachers' nightmare & other teenagers' hip cool role model?
I was an ultra conservative goody-goody two shoes. After I turned 18, I rebelled, but took things only so far. In my mid 20s, I returned to the church. Thirty odd years later, midway between conservative and liberal (leaning more towards liberal) I'm still struggling to sort things out.
When I was in high school I wanted to be like Judd Nelson's "John Bender" character in "The Breakfast Club." I wore my hair long(ish), wore jeans and concert t-shirts and tried to cultivate an image of this bad-ass metal head who shouldn't be messed with.
In reality, however, I was too "good" for that sort of image. I may have copped the rebel "look" but personality-wise I was closer to Anthony Michael Hall's dorky "Brian" character. I didn't party, I didn't run with a bad crowd, I got decent grades, and for the most part I stayed out of trouble...which was probably for the best because a couple of those "bad crowd" kids are dead now.
