Do you know whatís totally depressing? Once I grow up and get a job, Iíll also have bills to pay. And judging from what I hear from adults, those bills add up fast and make life rather miserable at times. So recently decided to take full advantage of my parents paying the bills and enjoy my youth Ė after all it only happens once!
Just Hang Out
You should spend as much time as possible with your friends and family members. Someday youíll be the one gone from the early hours of the morning until the evening time. As much fun as it might be to get that paycheck, itís much more fun to be able to watch some TV after school, talk to friends until the middle of the night and then sleep late (on the weekends.)
Sitting around doing nothing has never been as much fun as it is now. Iíve noticed that my friends and I are doing more talking and thinking these days, and itís fun to debate things among ourselves and try to figure out the answers to lifeís problems. Hereís to never running out of things to say!
Be Romantically Inclined
Iím convinced there are too many people, women in particular, who need a bit more romance in their lives. Weíre fortunate as young people to have a huge amount of potential romance around us all the time. You donít have to actually start dating anything male that looks your way, but a few mad crushes and a bit of flirting never hurt anyone. Youíre young and presumably free Ė enjoy it!
Never turn down the opportunity to go anywhere. You can get discounts to see the world on school trips and if your parents ask you to go somewhere, you should always say yes. Travel is ridiculously expensive, but so long as someone else is willing to foot the bill you should go for it. There is so much to see and do in the world and it will take a lifetime just to scratch the surface. Start now by seeing whatís nearby with friends and family and then you can strike out on your own when you have funds of your own, someday.
Learn and Explore
I know that school can be a total drag at times, but you can learn so many interesting things, especially once you get to high school. Of course you have to take the courses you need for your future, but donít hesitate to branch out and take something thatís always interested you Ė art, theatre, sociology, photography, journalism and so much more is available at high schools, often taught by experts in the field who also happen to like kids.
Sign up for as many courses as you can without sacrificing your required courses to give yourself a chance to learn fun new things. Remember, too, that you can sign up for special camps and courses over holidays and summers to learn even more about things that interest you.
