I like or dislike being teenager
Any boy or girl from the age of thirteen to twenty year is a teenager. I suppose myself to have reached the age of seventeen years. I have purposely chosen to have assumed the age of seventeen, because mindful of Tagore’s story. Home coming I would like to avoid the consequences of the age of fourteen. That is an age when the voice of a boy becomes hoarse and his face and body angular. He cans neither pass for a child nor the importance of a grown up person. He is like a story dog who goes from door to door for a piece of beard, but is disdained and kick off from every door.
By the time I have reached the age of seventeen. I shall be a second year student of the senior class-11th or 12th. I shall have my rightful claim to look not only senior but superior to the students of junior classes. That will give a great satisfaction to my ego. I am sure I shall have a healthy body and handsome face. I shall have the joy of having an impressive personality. The days of being treated as a responsible young man by my teachers. At home my parents do not rebuke me, but listen to me with due attention. The elderly people of the neighbourhood have started entrusting me with errands of responsibility. My parents can now safely send me to the bank to deposit and withdraw money. The wives of my elder brothers address me as Lalaji. The new importance that I have assumed gives me pride and pleasure. Some times there are visitors to my parents with proposals of their daughter’s marriage with me. The idea of marriage has its attraction as well as repulsion to me but on the whole I feel shy of taking any interest in such proposals. However of late I have become more found of novels and pictures of romance. M ore than that I have started thinking of a good future for myself.
I am sorry to have lost the sympathy and love of the elderly people that I used to get when I was a child I am very sorry that I am not getting now the gifts sweets and other eatables from my parents. I also feel sorry that all my clothes have become tight and I can no more utilize them. It pinches me very much, as I am too big to run into the lap of my mother.

1. Nobody’s ever seen an adult do anything reckless because they always worry about what other people will say. But we can do whatever we want without anyone holding us responsible for it, because, after all, we are teenagers!
2. Being in love with people you have never met. Celebrity fever is the most enjoyable part of being a teenager. Idolising someone you barely know. We even have names to describe us according to our obsession – Directioners. Beliebers. Twerds.
3. Creating twitter accounts just so you can stalk your favourite celebrity. Stalking is a natural part of teen life and twitter accounts help us stay informed about the celeb buzz.
4. Looking ugly at home and loving it. Being fashion conscious while in public, we enjoy our private time at home wearing mismatched things, as long as they are comfortable.
5. It’s only teenagers who can sit in the same place either watching their favourite TV show or lying on the bed doing nothing after school for hours and enjoy it. It is just part of who we are!
6. We can get our thrills from chocolate, One Direction or Usain Bolt – or nothing at all.
7. Day-dreaming is our favourite pastime and the time of day doesn’t really matter. I can do it through the night imagining a future that is beyond bizarre, that is, one on the wrong side of the teen years.
8. Being a rebel without a cause. Isn’t adolescence all about that? I can rant and refuse all I want and my parents will blame it all on my raging hormones. Oh, the joys of being a teenager!
9. YOLO (You only live once). Every teenager’s motto... mine too.
10. Being on Team Edward. We got to enjoy the Twilight series, need I say more?
