+ No school.
Though I hate to admit it because education is super important, teens do not appreciate school. We groan at the sound of our alarm clocks going off. Just five more minutes! Right? Just the sound of the bell gives us the intense need to jump from our seats and leave the classroom. That is something school has branded us with. The impulse to jump out of our seats and leave at the sound of a bell. The lectures bore us to sleep, and the homework boggles our brains. Besides, who wants to do homework when there are so many other equally productive or unproductive things to do? Summer allows us to get a break from all of that. There are no bells, no teachers, no homework. Nothing, and it is great.
+ Late nights and sleeping in.
During the summer, we teens are able to toss aside our alarm clocks. We stay up until late hours of the night texting and instant messaging our friends, surfing the web, and playing games. We have no obligations that require us to go to bed at decent times. We also have no need to wake up early. We can sleep in. We can lounge around in bed for hours, only getting up when the steady rumble of our stomachs is too much to bear. We can settle into our teenage instincts that tell us to stay in bed until the sun in high in the sky.
+ No major responsibilities.
We don't have to do anything. Our biggest worries consist of social events because our biggest responsibilities revolve around school. We can be lazy and carefree. Lazy day everyday? There is no one to tell us no (except maybe our parents). Laying on the couch and watching Netflix can be our entire day. We don't have to go anywhere. There isn't even a need to get our of our PJ's (unless you go in public. Then you might want to think about changing...).

I am Samantha, and my goal for this blog is to basically share my experiences as a teenager. Basically, I am a teen. I have many hopes and dreams, many fears and insecurities that I let hold me back. There is so much that goes on in my life. Sometimes it is a struggle, and that is what this blog is about.
