I’m obsessed with the idea of late nights, loud parties, 1 AM burger runs, and I keep requesting that we take day trips for my birthday. I’m constantly trying to recreate all my favorite teen movies. Clichéd, I know, but isn’t this my time to be a cliché?

I think it should be, but trust me, it’s hard to have all those Teen Movie Moments when you always feel like you’re missing something. It’s kinda like falling down a ladder slowly: I start at the top with the perfect location and event, but then I don’t have the money to get there. When I do get the money together, no one else wants to accompany me. By now, I’m somewhere in the middle of the ladder. When I have the money and the friends, we don’t have a ride. By the time I have the ride, my friends have cancelled. And now I’m lying on the floor, with just the dream of the perfect day and my disappointment.

I can’t wait until I’m in control of what I do and when I do it, because this whole wait-and-see thing just isn’t for me. ♦
