oh god, i remember my teen angst years. I started getting angsty around 10 (and some pre-angst before that). by junior high, when i got home from school, i'd go online and read fanfiction until my mom got home an hour later. I'd talk to her until i heard the garage door go up which meant my dad was home. i'd then grab my backpack, go into my room, lock the door, blast Blink 182 or Foo Fighters, and play video games until dinner was ready. I'd quickly grab my plate take it into my room, watch tv, and then do my homework, watch more tv, then go to bed round 1030 or 11...when i was really angsty, i'd blast Adam's Song on repeat and write in my journal how much life sucked and i wish i had never been born...i'm glad i grew out of that phase (in my 20s, mind you)
Teenagers struggle with their own issues, for certain. My son isn't that bad, different issues, but I'm glad you shared, thank you. It helps not feeling alone in this madness! I remember being a teenager too, but my circumstances were way different.
