My Personal Life as a Teenager

Updated on December 2, 2011

High school is amazing! Teenage life is awesome but sometime it is the pain in the ass! Living my life as a teenager I go through tough responsibility and most importantly I go through a lot of peer pressure. In my freshman year in high school, I was an honor student. I was a popular geek in school with my club friends called the HONOR SOCIETY. Library is my best friend, honor society is my after school best friend, and during school hour is my big enemy because I have been teased. I was called a school girl and many of my close friends would ditch me because of embarrassment. I was unpopular for their type

I was one of the top five hundred students who passed the California Sat test with a high score and my name was listed on the city newspaper. My grade was very high and I score a 3.5 to 4.0 GPA throughout high school until one day I wanted to fit in with the others. I started to fail class, drop out of honor class, hanging out with the wrong people, getting into fights, trouble with anger, suspension and so on. I made a wrong decision for myself. My friend Hoiling approaches me and tells me that I am not the person she uses to know. I change a lot. She pictured me as a very bad person and she missed the real me.

I went home and look through the entire award I have, I do missed the old me. I seek for a counselor and she helped me get my way back up. I join the track team and join the writing club. I write comic stories and I write poetry. One of my poem and story was published in the school magazine, it was sold to student and all the money goes to the club. I go to the library a lot and I read almost all the new books that came out. After getting back to where I belong, I wasted half a year in high school. I didn’t get the scholarship that I suppose to get that was worth $35,000. I do regret but instead of feeling sorry for myself, I take it as a lesson because everyone make mistake and I should learn from it. If I can go back in time, I would have told myself that if they are my real friend, they would accept me for who I am. I don't need to have bad grade to be their friend. My grade has nothing to do with them.

Being a geek is not the problem; the problem is how I accept who I am. There is time where I fell into a serious complication, where I want to quit, cutting myself, plan to commit suicide, and hated myself because I look ugly. I have been told that I look ugly and weird. I have been called a four eye, I have been pushed around and it hurt so much that sometime I felt that life is not worth of living.

Never do I ever felt that I have a chance to live a life like a teenager. I don’t have time to go out shopping, putting make up on, going on a date, getting boyfriend, talking on the phone, or doing all the popular girl do. I have worked, I work since I was 14 and I work from 3pm to 11pm after school. When I get home, I stay up late to do homework and study for test. Weekend I work a double shift and sometime I work over time. When I get home early from work sometime I would find my mother drunk. I would help my older sister clean her up and put her to bed. Dad would be out fishing with his friend.

Not only do I work hard to get where I am now, but I also go through problem like arrange marriage. I reached puberty at 16 and this is when my mother said I’m ready for a husband. I hate guys and I don’t let any guys touch me. I would beat the tooth out of their mouth if they even touch me. I met with three different guys, one got smack in the face, and second got his weenie a boo-boo and third one got his face soaked with mud fish dish. My mother said I will never get a husband if I act like that. I tell her I don’t need a man in my life!

All I thought about was making money and go to college until I met with my fiancé and yes, love bug bites!

      A very tough life as a teenager and I'm glad you got out of the mess you probably were going to land in, if you had not decided otherwise. Your story should inspire a lot of teenagers who succumb to peer pressure to be in with the crowd.

      Hi Alexander and ska211, thank you very much for reading and commenting! @Alexander, yes! @Ska211, teenager are sure dumb at some point and you are right, most of them hang out with the same old people. It's just sad to look at our teen children and they are doing the same stupid mistake that we once did when we're their age. I don't have kids...I'm 22...but I do have friends who has a sibling that are in that stage. My cousin is doing the same mistake I did, I tell her my story which she ignore. Sometime my story is not worth of telling, but I'm still happy I did.

      Wow, your high school life sounds a little like mine except I'm a guy, wasn't that smart, and I'm now a parent of a high schooler. Teenagers are dumb, the very people judging you today will be the ones wishing they were you when you're graduating from college, meeting new interesting people, and making 'real' money. They will still be dating and hanging out with the same old people from high school 5 to 20 years from now. I'm seeing it right now on Facebook, all the so called "cool" kids are now cool adults who still live in the same crappy neighborhoods, and still dating the same people we went to high school with and struggling payday to payday. There lives are a mess. All the pain they cause now will be right back at them in the very near future.
