Welcome to my blog
Lessons In Adolescence #1: My First Year in the Wild
This is the story of my wild journey through adolescence: the infamous growth stage from ages 11-15 where one becomes mentally, emotionally, and physically insane.
So why should you waste your time reading this?
Well, you probably don’t have anything better to do. Besides, reading would impress your parents, and maybe they’ll give you the video game you’ve wanted since forever. And don’t worry, it won’t be boring. I’ll try to make it as fun as possible. It won’t even feel like reading. Reading my blog will feel like riding a roller coaster, except only the best parts. So, no two-hour wait beforehand, and no kid behind you with motion sickness who barfs all over you. And as soon as you’re done, you’ll want to read it again.
But most importantly, you might learn something. The lessons I learned from my chaotic journey through adolescence, which I have handily included at the end of every chapter, will help you to not make the same mistakes I did.
Now, check that your seatbelt is securely fastened, keep your arms and legs inside at all times, and enjoy the ride!
Navigation hint – as year #1 of the blog is complete, I reordered the posts to from beginning to end to make it easier for you to read and appreciate my insane life!
For my previous blog readers (a big Thank You!), you may have noticed the new, cleaner blog format.
That brings us to…
Pro-Tip#1, from a rank amateur: When you set up your blog with your parents’ credit card, be sure to use an email that does not change so that someone can always be reached when the credit card expires. That way, your blog will not suddenly get permanently deleted from all the internet and the world, and you won’t have to end up spending your New Year’s Eve rebuilding your blog from scratch. Doh!
But don’t ask me how I learned that important lesson.
