Growing Up

Growing up. It’s defined as;

When we were little kids we admired our older siblings. They were allowed to go out, were allowed more freedoms and they had more of a say in what went on in their life. And you, poor little you, had to abide by your parent’s rules and agree with them. We dreamed of the day we would be able to walk into the doors our middle or high school, excited for the liberties that came with being a teenager. We all thought that 8th-12th grade would be a piece of cake, just like in High School Musical.ย Sure, we may have been scared, but all those fears were hidden behind a facade of brand new shoes and a fresh haircut.

But after we finished the first month (I died after the first week), we realized just how much of a hell being a teenager was. We didn’t get straight A’s (I actually failed a couple of tests) or even get to have a crazy life. No, we were just tossed more chores and given tons of responsibility. However, we have to realize that disappointment is a huge part of growing up. We won’t always get everything we want and we have to learn to accept that and move on.

This year has been an absolute roller coaster. I went from being a dependent 8th grader to a slightly less needy 9th grader. In the matter of a couple of months, I have changed so much. I have learned that procrastinating is ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE and fudges up your whole life (but I’ll probably still do it next year). So please, as a former wanna-be “grown up”, use your time wisely and make smart decisions. I know that most of the people who read my blog (I love all of you very much) are in middle school or high school already, but I still wanted to get my message across, regardless of your age. But despite me making growing up seem scary and just a big hassle, you don’t have to be worried. The pros outweigh the cons by a landslide. Sure, there is acne, crushes (those absolutely suck), and mountains of homework but it’s all worth it in the end. Growing up is a part of life (literally) and may seem tough, but we’ll make it through.

If you made it to the end of this, thank you so much. I know this was WAY different than my usual content, but I was just in the mood for this. I’m sorry if it gets a little off-topic, I don’t regularly write like this.

  1. Haha this is so true! Honestly I blame tv shows, movies, books etc for my unrealistic expectations of middle and high school – I thought we’d have fun adventures and barely any homework or other responsibilities! But as soon as you let those expectations go there’s a lot to appreciate ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. I love this post! I can totally relate XD I should never have watched High School Musical before I actually went to high school. I literally went there and expected big halls and loads of musicals, and when they didn’t come… yikes!


  3. This post was pure PERFECTION! I’m the oldest sibling, so I didn’t have any older role models besides fictional characters (@ troy bolton ๐Ÿ˜‚) I wish that I enjoyed my childhood more, but I’m excited for the years to come!!
