My So-Called Teenage Life Blog Hop


So... I'm only 22. My teenage years really weren't that long ago. But alas! Teenage years start at 13 right? And I KNOW I can find some embarrassing things from middle school. Did I mention I hated middle school? Well I did.

Any who, here's some pictures and some diary entries from back then! Enjoy :)


So I'm going to go backwards by age! 

We'll start with 17:

Yep, I was a cheerleader :) From middle school until my freshman year in college!

 One of my favorite pictures ever!

Age 16:

Yes I'm the one to the far right. We thought we were that cool.

Age 15:

Going to a dance at a friend's school! This is referred to as my "Belle" dress. And yes, I still have it. And *think* still fit it LOL.

Age 14:
 (This is where I start to get SO UGLY. SO EMBARRASSING.)

Ah.... yeah.

Ninth grade hang know. We were so cool. Actually, my first BF is taking the picture. LOL.

Age 13:

I actually adore this picture. LOL And this night is when I actually first learned how to use eye liner! Courtesy to the the other girl in the picture!


Now that we've got those out of the way. I have EVEN MORE WAYS TO EMBARRASS myself! :) Below. Is a poem I wrote at age 13. And a diary entry from when I was also 13. While I looked through these, I seriously was LAUGHING my ass off. I cannot believe I wrote these things. It's absolutely crazy to look back on.

What possessed me to write like this.. I will never know. I'll just blame teenage love. LOL

And I cannot believe I used to... wRitE lYkE DiZ!

Go ahead laugh. Please do. I laughed SO hard. The sad thing is I still remember exactly who this is written about. LOL

So I used to have the hugest crush on this kid...

And I swear my handwriting is WAY better now! lol.

If you weren't apart of this hop. You totally missed out. This is was SO much fun. And I cannot wait to do this again when I'm say 40. As a suggestion, I suggest everyone go dig through your old stuff today or tomorrow. Because you will get a laugh or a smile out of it. I'm SURE of it. :)



  1. Holy Crap. I love THE hell out of this. For real. The best part is that I'm SO much older than you that my poetry is more like Emily Dickinson poetry bc hip hop and spoken word poetry wasn't even a thing back then.

    I adore you. Seriously, you have solidified yourself as the most awesome person FoReVeR!

    1. Haha I'm glad you loved it! And hopefully got some laughs out of it! Haha :)

      And you are the most awesomely person ever!! <3 Dark Darlings!

  2. How creative you were! I'm not sure I could handle reading a ton of the poetry, my eyes would bug out. But I'm old. :)

    I get a kick out of all the people I mentioned in my journals. Who was going with whom. I mean, seriously, they weren't my good friends, but I often had lists of breakups and such. Why?

    1. I can't believe how many boys names and Friends I wrote about. I was laughing so hard.

  3. That poem is awesome. And yeah, I'm old enough that my eyes bugged out a little bit and the English teacher in me was going "Nooooo!" but it's great.

    1. I think that poem is the thing I laughed the most about. I still cannot figure out how I had that in me lol!

  4. That poem is a definite keeper! I also enjoyed the journal entry and the entire page dedicated to your crush. I remember the days when I used to do things like that. Thanks for sharing so much!

  5. Love this post. <3 Going through memories with our pictures and journals and poems is so much fun. I go through mine once in awhile and have a good laugh at how much of a dork I was. Ah, the teenage years. I'm going to do a post like this for fun now. And I'll link to yours as inspiration for it! Thanks! :)

  6. AH HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I love that last diary entry. And I know I have several high school pictures like that where me and all my friends are DRAPED over each other. LOL! So glad I'm not alone.

    Thanks for the laugh and for playing along. This was AWESOME!! :)

    1. Any time!!! Thank you for hosting it!!! :D

  7. Okay, I already told you but I love this post. I could never share any of that haha.
    It just made realized how lame I was when I was a teenager!! (Not that I have improved or anything haha)and I never had a journal!! Always thought it was scary to write my thoughts down.

    You were cheerlader that is so cool. I always wanted to do that, then again...lame high school.
    You look SO different on your Belle dress. :)

    Hahaha the last entry was funny...sowwwy! :P
    Good thing you no longer wRitE lYkE DiZ! Hahaha

    Great post and pictures. Thanks for sharing with us. ;)

  8. I had the SAME kind of huge loopy handwriting when I was in HS. The more I wrote, the loopier it got.
    Love your pics - funny how none of us had any personal boundaries when the camera came out. :))

  9. OK, I was laughing until I read about you doing this again at age 40....then I just felt old (cuz I am...42)...LOL

  10. Love those pictures, and it's nice to meet you. This is the best blog hop ever.

  11. Love those PoemZ. Really amazing, thanks for sharing.

  12. Oh my gosh, I love the Belle dress! Thanks for sharing in all our silliness! This blog hop has been a lot of fun.

  13. Hahahahaha OMG. I LOVE THIS. And I love how brave you are for making these public LOL. No flipping way would I post some of my journal entries or photos from when I was younger... unless I was planning to hibernate for the next 10 years.

    I don't know who you're kidding, but you were ADORKABLE when you were younger! <3

    That poem! Oh god. As if I couldn't love you more than I already do. That is hilarious. You had skillz ;) And dude, that Conrad guy didn't know what he was missing out on!!

    This post rocks. And brings back so many memories of my own!


Want to tell me something? :)
