Ever wondered what a teenager posts on Facebook? Your teenager? Your teenager's friends? Your future teenager?
As a good parent, I have access to my son's Facebook account. I periodically keep tabs on him, as well as my nieces. He knows it, and he doesn't care. Other than my oldest niece's sideways revelation about drinking on New Year's Eve, there's been nothing too shocking in any of theirs. Yet. Thank heavens.
But being that teenagers are "friends" with virtually everyone they know, whether they are real friends or not, there is some interesting reading going on!
There's sass: "Don't play games with a girl who can play em better ♥" Gotta admit, girl's got spunk.
Naive: " "Like" this and all your wishes will come true. This really works." Seriously, don't you have homework to do?
Sweet: "Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget" Teenage girls are so sappy.
Teenage romance: "I love my boyfriend ♥" *eyeroll* Sweetheart, there's a 95% chance that in 6 months you will gag at the idea that you thought you loved him.
Trendy: "I love Jersey Shore :)" Really, just do your homework.
Brainy: "I PASSED AP BIO!!!" Congrats. Clearly you DID your homework.
Honest: "I wish Facebook didn't get me distracted from homework so easily" Yeah, me too.
Dramatic: "After two weeks I finally have my phone back. I can live again." Hehe. Wonder what she did to get her phone taken away...
And then there one's I have no words for. Except, as you can see, I have plenty of words for them:
"fuck signing up for drivers ed 2morrow finally haha. just got to lvl 25 in the new zombie lvl. ranked 11,000 in the world cuz i have a life!!!" I'm not so sure about that having a life thing, son.
"No School=Wake and bake + bake later today" I'm sure this 16 year old aspires to be a pastry chef. Ahem.
"Just realized that some girls shouldn't wear yoga pants...." Mighty observant of you.
"Fuck!!!!! im failing 3 classes!!!!! not gooood. i hate ceramics, science and math!!!" Ceramics? You failed ceramics? How in the hell do you fail ceramics?
"damn went to school once this week and its already the weekend again!!! Damn good" Duuuuude.
It all makes me realize two things: 1) You couldn't pay me to be a teenager again, and 2) I'm SO glad we didn't have Facebook when I was a kid!
