Top 10 Things You'll Miss When You're a Teenager

I am dealing with the fact that I'm growing up so I made this list.

The Top Ten

1 Your childhood

Sometimes, I yearn for the days of childhood, where I was clueless of the world around me, and didn't have a care in the world. As kids, we didn't give a damn about all the awful stuff in the world and only gave a damn about the monsters under the bed. Of course now, we are now aware of pretty much everything.

Childhood is a stage when we are really new to the world we are so innocent so gullible, or I should say so pure at that time. We hardly care about the hardships of life and that's why this phase becomes the best time of our life...

When I think about my childhood, I get sad and I cry because I grew up too fast and I was bullied and that was the time I enjoyed life more... - PrincessKiana

Yes, now a lot of annoying relatives have really high expectations on me, and I can't enjoy the same as when I was a child - styLIShT

2 Your metabolism

I was skinny all my life but now I still am but I am a little thick and it's hard to lose the weight off. One day, I'll eat high calorie foods and the next day, I'll starve myself for hours, My mom does have obesity on her side so I'm trying to keep my body fit. - PrincessKiana

I dunno man, I've tried starving myself before and its terrible for you and your body. To be honest, I was being an damn idiot. If you're at a healthy weight, do yourself a favor and accept whatever the reflection is. Which IS easier said than done. - keycha1n

This is very true I am 13 and I have a metabolism that is naturally very high and I am very skinny but I do eat a lot actually because I'm a runner but don't think that I have anorexia or bulimia

I tend to have the need to eat a lot and THEN, an ad about body care or whatever relating to bodies showed the "perfect body image". And that's when I thought "I regret eating all of the food" - MLPFan

3 Your toys

When I was little, I always loved bratz and barbie dolls but I grew out of it at the age of 12. - PrincessKiana

I used to play with my Hot Wheels set but I have outgrown it and now I make YouTube Poops.

Eh, I still have a few of my toys... They're just in the attic.

I still have my game Gear but it no longer works well :(

4 Your hairless body

I know who put on hairless body that sucks bo!

I wish I had no leg hair. It's really annoying - PizzaGuy

Actually almost everything that went with the puberty - djeidi123

Lol you don't see real man to cry like
-My hairless body

5 Your innocence

Circumstances forced me to grow up way too fast. Enjoy it while it lasts, because you can never get it back. - PetSounds

Kinda. I curse and chill too much. You can still be innocent because I see some 11th Grade girls that are pretty innocent. - AlphaQ

I still have this.

Nah,I don't miss this,being the gangsta in school is so fun! - Nateawesomeness

6 Your parents doing stuff for you

So true I'm 13 and my mom has me do most of the cleaning when I'm home but she doesn't always cook for me but she knows that I'm capable of cooking for myself and I also cook for both of us when we are home

Laundry, Cooking, housework, cleaning things, dishes, vacuuming, the list goes on...

My mom still cooks for me, but my dad let's me cook my own food

I was always kind of on my own... - Therandom

7 Your virginity

What the heck?!? You're crazy if you think I'm going to loose this when I'm a teenager. Is it...NORMAL for teens to have these types of relationships? If it is, what has this world come to. This is why I want to kill myself. ARE THERE ANY GOOD PEOPLE LEFT IN THE WORLD?!? When I'm a teenager, I don't care if every single kid in my school is doing that...thing. I will NEVER EVER NEVER do this until I'm married. (This is why I'm not normal and made fun of. Whenever I hear about teens having sexual intercourse, I make fun of them, no offense.) - RockFashionista

I totally agree with you, but you shouldn't kill yourself. You're an amazing person. - Turkeyasylum

Even though I'm in a relationship, I'm in no particular hurry to lose mine. - PetSounds

If me and my next girlfriend are both in love, and are ready for it, we'll lose our virginity.(I would wait for a year) - Therandom

Oh.. okay then - kawaiitohru

8 Not having periods

This list doesn't apply to me. I had my first period at 10 and 8 months and I started waxing before becoming a teenager. I have no responsibilities and I will stay a virgin, until I am married. My parents still do stuff for me and I was never skinny in my life. I never was into toys and I am still living in a childhood. I never was able to make friends until I was 11-13 years. I am 13 years old and fine right now with becoming a teenager.

At least I never have to have them! - Therandom

I miss those days where we could wear all the pretty underwear we wanted and not fear of getting it stained in red. - Pegasister12

Roll on, menopause! - Entranced98

9 Your old responsibilities

I don't like to speak to people because my voice is weird sounding and now my mom is making me speak in public because I'm going to high school and people would think I'm crazy and have problems. - PrincessKiana

10 Having it easy in school

One minute your learning the ABC's and the colours of the rainbow, the next it's solving algebra and dissecting pig fetuses.

I wish my math homework could be 2+2=4 for once again. - Songsta41

When your homework was like: "Draw your pet"...

Actually in my private middle school we have only 5 classes a day, free food, never have homework, don't need to do P.E. if we don't want to and teachers would do anything to raise your grade. Also no bullies here. I prefer being in school than home

The Contenders

11 Your old friends

I graduated 8th grade in June with an average of an 83 (2.8 gpa or B-) I hated my friends but I miss some of them, even my crush, I just realized I had a crush on him because he was so nice to me and I had a dream when I had sex with him in front of everyone in my old class and they were just staring. - PrincessKiana

Yes,because at this point of time when we have so much of things to explore and so much to learn, each time we have a partner in crime with us and he/she becomes a part of the memories we possess for our experiences
So of-course a time will come when those friends will only be there in those memories so they will be missed...!

My friends from 5th grade were the best.

I will silently cry when my bffs and super hot crush leave me...

12 Recess

My first day in High School everybody was asking where the playground was. They shocked us saying:we don't have one.

Our school still has them - MLPFan

In UK still have school breaks in Secondary school. Break a rule sneak out of the school, or just stay on the grounds which isn't a playground just hang out, or just go library.

I still have recess!

13 Asking to play

When you asked to play instead of to hang out or "chill."

14 Playing in Playgrounds
15 Sleeping on the sofa and magically waking up in bed
16 Kid's Meals

Also free toy!

Come on. Free dessert, fun menus, and now I can't do that anymore without getting shunned or embarrased.

17 Middle School

When you become a teenager you are in the middle of Middle School - Jake09

Not in my town because I'll be in junior high.

I’m in this horrid school, and I know I certainly won’t miss it.

18 Lots of presents
