Cheers To The Teenage Years

Hey Guys,

So today, I am starting yet ANOTHER series on this blog. This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a while but I never really got round to it. I decided it’s time to start it now because there are stupid teen things that, honestly, piss me RIGHT off. But you gotta love ’em right? They’re the teenage years and when they’re over, they’re over. This is gonna be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to show you guys all the things I love and hate about this whole teenage shit. As they say… Cheers To The Teenage Years.๐Ÿค˜

So the topic of the first “teenage years” is…

SNAPCHAT

Oh snapchat.. you either hate it or youย hate it love it. Now this could just be me but I don’t really like snapchat…at all. It could just be because I’ve personally experienced bad things first hand, but I feel like everyone has had a bad experience with snapchat. I’ve just had more than average! Anyway it could be something as small as sending an accidental snap, to having beef in your stories – ย we’ll be covering all of that today. Let’s get into it!



Okay so I’m gonna start with some things that annoy me –

1. ‘The Fake Emo’

Okay so maybe this is just people I know, but I feel like people on snapchat are just in a mood for no reason. They are always sad, or angry or depressed or something but then when you see them in real life it’s the complete opposite. They literally show no signs that something is going on but then on snapchat it’s like…

“Everyone leave me alone” or “I’ve had enough of it all” or “sometimes I think I’m not worth it”

Those are just some examples of things I’ve seen but I feel like it’s all bullcrap. If you were HONESTLY feeling sad or depressed (trust me, I’ve been there) I highly doubt that within the space of a couple hours, you could go from “I hate my life” to being seen at school the next day being all hugs and kisses. I don’t know, what do you guys think about it?

2. ‘The Quoter’

Okay I KNOW that everyone has experienced someone like this at least once in their lives. If you say you haven’t then you are lying. Full stop.

So I feel like ever since snapchat got that update that you could post pictures from your camera roll onto you snapchat, everyone wants to become either;

a. A motivation speaker

b. A downer

or

c. A creepy romantic

I feel like EVERYONE goes over to Instagram and twitter, look up quote pages and then just post them on their snapchats. I honestly cannot tell you the amount of quotes I have seen in my lifetime. I could probably write a full sized book just from one persons story…yep it’s that bad.

They talk about how much they want a boyfriend or girlfriend, how much they hate their life and just wish ‘people would understand them’ and that everyone needs to work hard and ‘stay strong’ and remember that “the darkest nights produce the brightest stars” AKA: useless spiel that NOBODY, including themselves believe.

3. The ’18 and Over’ Person

Ummm… I think you see where I’m going with this. There’s always somebody who…likes to get freaky. They post VERY inappropriate content which you wouldn’t even see in 50 shades of grey. I know it sounds like I’m exaggerating but it’s really true. A majority of the time, it’s boys – ย but that doesn’t mean that the ladies don’t like to give it a good old try. In some ways it’s actually worse…please…don’t make me think about it again!

Oh Guys! This just reminded me of a story. I’m gonna tell you guys in a blog post coming soon, I REALLY can’t keep this to myself because..it’s just crazy.

4. The ‘Indirecter’

Okay so this one is about beef. Lot’s of people fight on snapchat but surprise surprise, nobody mentions any names. It’s all like “SOME PEOPLE think they are so prestige and SOME PEOPLE think they are so special” I’m not even gonna lie to you guys, I’ve definitely done this before. I think I did it purely because, if it backfires then you can say something like “oh how do you know I was even talking about YOU?”

I don’t know, I think it’s hilarious bow some people indirect and then think that we, the audience, have NO CLUE whatsoever who they are talking about. Like…really? Do you honestly think I don’t have any sense? Like it’s not obvious you’re talking about the ONLY redhead in the whole school when you say “urgh, redheads are sluts”? Come soon now, may be awkward, but I’m not stupid.

5. The ‘Concert Cruiser’

So somehow, there is always that one person who somehow finds a way to make it to every single event that happens. Like anywhere. And they definitely won’t let you forget it. Their stories will legit be 10 minutes long and will be filled with them posting videos and pictures from the concert, just to remind you that you’re not there… great.

I remember this one girl I know, went to a The Weeknd Concert. Guys my heart literally broke into a million Weeknd shaped pieces as I watched her stories over and over again in awe wondering how she – who didn’t even know his first name – got to go. I guess next time I have to stop fucking around and get there QUICK!



Anyway, now that I’ve got the annoying people put of the way I figured I might as well just say this.

As much as I like to say I HATE snapchat, I still use it. I mean, I personally don’t post very often, but I like to see what other people are up to. I feel like it’s like that for a lot of things. We say we don’t like something, but we always end up doing it some way or another. I honestly don’t even know WHY I use snapchat. There’s just something about being out of the loop that’s unsettling..I don’t know, am I making any sense at all?

Anyway, it feels like if you are not keeping up with everything that’s going on, then you’ll miss everything and then you just feel out of place. I mean, I honestly couldn’t give a damn if people think I don’t belong, but there’s just something nice abut knowing what’s up, you know?

I mean come on… I’m a teenager!



That’s it for this blog post guys! I really hope you enjoyed it because I think this is one of my favourite posts! I had a lot of fun telling you guys what annoys me (I think I love to complain more than normal…oh well)

Also, every once in a while, I would like to have more a serious talk in my cheers to the teenage years series so just look out for that because I feel like that will be very very informative and I’d just like to get my side across and I feel like this series would be the perfect place to do it!

Anyway, I’ll see you guys very soon with another blog post!

Love,

The Awkward Expert ๐ŸŒบโ™ฅ

    Ughhhhh same! I hate when people think we know what they’re talking about. Like if you’re having beef with someone, confront them for god’s sake, or if you miss someone just TELL them like tbh I don’t get why you think we’re involved ๐Ÿ˜‚ I’m doing a whole other rant on Sunday. And thanks for “inspiring” the idea ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚
