The Wonderful World of Being a Teenager

Sometimes, being a teenager is rough. Your elders will tell you that it’s the best time of your life and to enjoy it; however, it doesn’t always feel that way. You’re told to cherish your time in high school and the friends you make, but school seems like the worst thing imaginable at the time.
