oh wow

Sofee

My blog entires are so goddamn teenagery. I mean, I've known this for ever, being a teenager and all, but I was just looking through my latest entries and it seems like my writing and me haven't changed. At all. For cereal, if I was someone else, I'd never come into this blog, it's so cringe and, ugh. Girly. Having my main audience as (much) older guys makes it even stranger, and I question why people would want to read this garbage. Wait a second... o_O

 

You guys all know about the mid-life crisis, but I'm having a, like, start-of-adulthood crisis. I'm in my final year of teenagehood and I don't feel very grown up. I mean, I do and I don't at the same time. I have my own car, I pay for my fuel, uni fees, gym membership, just about everything except household bills and food that's in the house. 2 years ago, things were very different in that respect - I don't think I was paying for anything I listed above. Of course, being an adult isn't just about money and paying things, there's countless other variables that contribute to adultey-ness. One of which definitely NOT being the word 'adultey-ness' in your vocabulary.

 

My mum once pointed out that I'm treating our house like a hotel. With all expenses paid for by them. It's kind of sad, and it's also kind of true. I wake up, do my own thing (uni/gym/socialise/work/gaming/TV), which usually means disappearing from their world until dinner time. My parents are lovely people, they are, but I'm at the point where I don't want to talk to them every single day. It would be much more valuable to me to see them once a month rather than once a day, so that I can appreciate the little time we have together. I could move out - I have the money and independence to, but I don't think it's worth it right now. If I have to pay thousands and thousands more just so I don't see my parents every day, it's not worth it. Not now, anyway.

 

Oh yeah, GYM! I can't remember if I've written about this before, but I've been going consistently-ish for 7/8 months now. No 6-pack or bubble butt, but I've made a lot of progress, especially with my legs. My upper body is suffering though - it's so hard to gain fat there, let alone muscle. I've gained plenty of muscle on my lower half, but my arms are like toothpicks, and it's so hard to make progress on them. Believe me, I've tried a lot of different exercises for them, but nada. Lifting weights feels SO much better to me compared to cardio. I don't love it, but I like the results that come from it. I've been going 2 or 3 times a week, and splitting between upper and lower body days. I know it's good for me - gets me out of the house and makes me not feel like a complete sloth.

 

Anyways, back to the teenagery rant about teenagers. Boy I'm eloquent.

 

I'm still writing like a teenager, as I always have through the god-knows-howmany years I've had this blog running, and I'm going to be the big 2-0 next year. Does one year make all the difference between adulthood and teenagery? Hell no, there are 20-somethings that still act like they're 15. Can non-teenagers watch teenage films and read adult teen books? I think I would die if I wouldn't be able to. There's such a big world out there, and I've only got my toes wet.

 

Again, I'm not sure that the main message is here. I suppose there doesn't have to be one - I set the rules here in my blog :P . So, what do you guys think about my blog? Why do you like/hate it? Will I get out of my bumbling teenage talk anytime soon? (not likely :P )

pretty much in the same boat with adulting. It's like I'm suddenly expected to have all of my shizzle together and I don't know how.

Best way I can describe aging (late-er 20's now) is that you'll never drastically change. However time will go increasingly fast. It creates a kind of permanent adulthood crisis. But it's enjoyable in some weird way, so it's all good.

 

Nice entry. I liked the part about lifting.

 

lifting kewl.

I always had a silly situation of pretty strong legs and pathetic upper body (years of long jump & various running disciplines) but it can be balanced up, it just might take you a while! Just be careful with things like deadlifts and other compound exercises as I found my legs could easily lift the weight but my lower back was not best pleased, which is why I use a belt :P

Did you mean: adulthood

 

B-but I can't be an adult yet, it's too big a word D:

Same thing, but it's more that I expect myself to have everything together. And when I don't it's like 'wtf this only happens when you're a teenager grow up'.

Adulting is great. And also not so great.

 

 

im 18 do i still count as a much older guy

 

Gtfo I'm supposed to be the youngest here. Jokes :P and I have to agree with Sobend - ageless you are.

Yeah, I feel like all the 'changing' has been done in high school already and I'm pretty much stuck with who I am now forever. Which I'm okay with. Life is strange.

Yay, you feel my pain! I mean uhh, that's not good :P The back problem is a...problem. I feel that too. I only see the people who use belts are the ones who lift super heavy, which definitely isn't me right now :P

well if you want to spend some time with your parents, make some time. do stuff together. i dunno what you lot do in the upside down part of the world but w/e it is you do, do that. prawns on the barby and all that.

 

most people that i know don't really grow up until they have kids or until they spend silly o'clock at work, so enjoy the youth that you have and enjoy the fact you only need to be 50% responsible in life

Tbh even if you're not carrying heavy weight, the belt just makes things a lot easier form-wise. So it might feel a bit puny using a belt when it's a low weight but there's no shame in wanting to protect your back! :P

Ahh no pls forget. I still have a hard time gaining weight though. But when I do, it never goes where I want it to go. Typical girl problem.

The thing is, doing 'special' stuff with my parents is kinda dull because I already see them every day, and it's pretty boring. Going on outings and holidays would be much nicer if we saw each other less frequently.

Yeah my parents were like that before I moved out for uni and whenever I go back home for like anything longer than a month, with the whole hotel speech haha. When in doubt, follow danis advice of smile and wave

Why would you want to feel all grown up? :P

I swear nothing terrifies me more than that. I hate knowing I'm dangerously close to the point being childish will stop being an option, and I already feel the energy and the motivation to keep my kid-self disappearing. It's so sad. :(

This response is hella late but if it bothers you that you're treating your home like a hotel you could always either try to make time to help with chores or even suggest paying something of a monthly rent.
