Adults

You want this 15 year-old girl's point of view on an adult?

Adults are like children but with a little more experience on being child like. Their hearts are just as fragile as a child's. When an adult says, "I know how you feel," it doesn't seem the same. I mean adults just don't know what us teenagers are going through! Right?

Wrong.

They know exactly what you are talking about because they gossip, fight, tear people down, cry, hurt, and feel just like we do. You always feel like you can go to your friends for everything, but why don't we feel that way about adults?

As a kid I told my mom everything, but as I got older I started to feel like she just didn't understand me. When I reached 15 I finally figured it out. She wasn't the one that didn't understand, it was ME! Your friends might be loyal, but your parents are the most loyal people you could ever talk to. They will be there NO MATTER WHAT the situation is.

Adults are not perfect by any means, but nobody is. They have the same insecurities (and more), but they also love, laugh, and build others up like we do (and more).

taterbug day

If your wondering what a taterbug day is...well its actually an interesting story:) ...

I think this all began on my 14th birthday when my aunt and I decided we were going to have a hang out day that never had to end. We called it a continuation day, and still do, but because of our unusual nicknames tater and bug (haha imagine that) it evolved to be called taterbug day:)

A taterbug day usually consist of:
-going to the movies
-laughing
-trying weird sounding food that we have never eaten before
-going to fabulous boutiques and trying on fantastic accessories

-laughing
-painting our nails
-brightly colored facials
-more laughing with a followup of CPR (for my aunt)
-cooking
-reading
-and sharing about what God is doing in our lives

Today taterbug day consisted of going to the gym then coming back home to eat vanilla ice cream topped with fresh blueberries. And yeah you probably guessed, MORE LAUGHING!
