Time misspent in youth is sometimes all the freedom one ever has.
Being a teenager is an amazing time and a hard time. It's when you make your best friends - I have girls who will never leave my heart and I still talk to. You get the best and the worst as a teen. You have the best friendships and the worst heartbreaks.
There is a point in every young person's life when you realize that the youth that you've progressed through and graduate to some sort of adulthood is equally as messed up as where you're going.
Trouble is, kids feel they have to shock their elders and each generation grows up into something harder to shock.

Growing up, I didn't have a lot of toys, and personal entertainment depended on individual ingenuity and imagination - think up a story and go live it for an afternoon.
I'm a teenager, but I'm independent - I have my own apartment, I have my own life. And I think I have learned more than any of those teenagers have in school. I learned to be responsible, leaving my family and coming here alone.
I have always had a sense that we are all pretty much alone in life, particularly in adolescence.
If you just watch a teenager, you see a lot of uncertainty.
Jamie Lee Curtis
I think there's a time in your life where you don't feel like you fit in. I think everyone has that when you're a teenager, especially, and especially in the society we live in.
Adolescence isn't just about prom or wearing sparkly dresses.
Adolescence is when girls experience social pressure to put aside their authentic selves and to display only a small portion of their gifts.
When I was in college, I wanted to be involved in things that would change the world.
Adolescence is just one big walking pimple.
All teenagers have this desire to somehow run away.
Teenagers who are never required to vacuum are living in one.

I think growing up is difficult and it's a process that I'm always interested in, with kids and adults, they are often on two different universes.
When I look in the mirror I see the girl I was when I was growing up, with braces, crooked teeth, a baby face and a skinny body.
