I remember feeling like that a time or two.

We'd have been such good friends.

I am sure everyone feels like that from time to time. A girl I saw as very popular wrote a book and described how unpopular she felt.

Dumb Mom said...

Boo to those words. You should write about now. Because being awesome at motherhood, at wifedom, at photo taking, at blogging, and probably a ton of other junk I don't even know about, has to be more significant than that cruddy bit of life when being popular mattered, right?!

So glad I'm not a teenager anymore.

I'm glad I got out of those years, and I pray my daughters won't struggle through them like I did. But then again, doesn't every teenager find those years a struggle? Sigh :) I love your blog and look forward each week to seeing the big state of Texas pop up on Mama Kat's workshop so I know to see what you wrote!

I was a adolescent then, and I felt for those who used the other 5 words.

Being a ole Fart is soooo much easier!

teenage years are definitely years I do NOT want to re-live!
While I would never revel in another person's struggles, it is somewhat calming to know that even those I thought were confident, secure, popular, etc.- had all those same feelings too.
That makes us normal, right?

I remember adolescent angst so well!
