Top 10 Things You'll Miss Most 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

Yeah I remember when I was younger my grandpa would take my brother and I golfing and now my grandpa is just getting physically ill so he can't take us anymore he has trouble walking and other devastating things. Childhood is a very important thing that occurs in your life. And remember life goes by way too fast.

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.

Oh yeah, by the way. If you get back to your childhood T.V. Shows for example, Bob the Builder. (I don't know why is he popular again?) you're going to get the creeps of Bob the builder's companions. It didn't creep you out before but he is the results while getting back to Bob the Builder.

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...

2 Having it easy in school

The only thing I don’t miss about elementary school is that we had to do a dancing unit pretty much one time every year. Partner dancing was the most awkward thing ever.

Homework then: Easy math problems, coloring, and learning ABCs.

Homework now: Complex math problems, science labs, and writing book reports

Actually I feel like the first like 6 years of school were by far the hardest.
You have to consider that, while the stuff you learn becomes more complex, you also got more knowledge and abilities to build on.
In the first years your brain is crammed with information you'll just have to learn by heart, the later years are more about applying what you've learned or forming an opinion based on what you know.

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

3 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.

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

Same ungh I put on non stained underwear and I bleed, but I put on stained and I don't. What?

At least I never have to have them!

4 Being popular in your family

I got dethroned by my sister and cousins and I no longer get as much attention that I used to get as a toddler :(

5 Lots of presents

I used to always get drones, but they would always crash or get lost in like the first minute I used them.

6 Opening presents on Christmas morning

I still get gifts for Christmas but we no longer wrap them.

I still get that at 16

7 Playing in playgrounds

When I was little I can rock back and forth on those playground spring horses hard with no problems. Now whenever I get on them I risk breaking, falling off, or being thrown off of them due to being WAY over the weight limit no matter gentle I am.

8 Recess

We used to always have these massive games of gang up tag, cops n robbers, and capture the flag, where nearly the entire year level would join. Those were the best lunchtimes of my life.

Now we play football.

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.

Why don't we have this? No wonder Teens are so bored every single day staying in one building all day without any fresh air.

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

9 Your metabolism

I ve got no problem, because I am slender because of my fast metabolism from the very starting of my life because it's kinda permanent, even I would like to increase ny weight I can't and I'm happy for that. I can walk for many hrs without stopping because of the energy! The stamina! I always feel in myself!

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.

So true! As a kid I can eat all the chocolate and desserts I want and NEVER had to worry about high blood sugar or weight gain. Now I have to carefully monitor everything that I eat. (I'm 26, by the way)

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"

10 Your toys

Man, I really do miss my Toy Story collection. And my old house used to have a playroom as well! Me and my brother used to make up our own amusement park.

Bratz and Barbie get too much love either way. Prissy little girls' stuff is the worst things in the universe. Thank God you grew out of it, PrincessKiana.

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

What I used to be into: Video games, dolls, stuffed animals, littlest pet shop, Legos, ext.
What I'm into now: Movies, clothes, books, albums, ext.

The Contenders
11 Your hairless body

Actually almost everything that went with the puberty

I know who put on hairless body that sucks bo!

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

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

12 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.)

Why is everyone against losing it?! I'm not, does it mean anything? I dunno. I'm a Catholic, but I don't always agree with the church. But of course, I'd only do it if I was 100% in love with the women.

Seriously? I am not planning on losing my virginity until I'm married after college or possibly ever if I am called to be a nun.

I don't even have a boyfriend. And I'm gonna wait until I get married. Why would I wanna rush into doing that so quickly anyway?

13 Your innocence

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

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

I miss the days when I didn't know how cruel and unfair of a place the world is...

I still have this.

14 Riding coin operated rides

When I was little I fit in the little carousels and was small enough to ride the horses. Now I am too big for the carousels and even though I still fit on the horses I have gotten kicked off a few of them for "being over the weight limit"

15 Your parents doing stuff for you

When I was little my parents did everything for me. I'm now 26 and they expect me to work my butt off for everything.

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...

16 Your old responsibilities
17 Sleeping on the sofa and magically waking up in bed
18 Looking forward to going back to school

I will go to 10th grade this September. In elementary school, I didn't really like school, but I liked seeing my friends and having recess. When middle school started, I despised school and now I view it as 10 months of torture where we have to see people we hate, "learn" things which I will most likely never use in 10 years from now on, and just get piled with lots of work.

Little kids view going back to school as having fun and play with friends. We older kids view it as going back to 10 months of being tortured with loads of work and mean teachers.

When I was 9 I started hating school

I never did this

19 Asking to play

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

“Hey, Greg! Want to come over to my house and play?” - Rowley, Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

20 Being able to swear without getting in trouble

I thought it was the other way around. You could never get away with swearing as a kid.

I swear a lot!

21 Your old friends

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...

22 Kid's meals

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

Also free toy!

23 Middle school

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

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.

24 Riding rocking horses

I had a toddler-sized wooden rocking horse that I rode often as a kid but I broke it when I tried to ride it as a teenager.

25 Trying to stay up till midnight on new year's eve

I now try to stay up till 3AM on NYE to watch all the performances on T.V.. (My parents force me to go to bed before they are all over)
