Being a teenager kinda sucks sometimes.

It came to me in flying colors that being a teenager isn't what the Disney movies made it to be. Only being around seven or eight when High School Musicale came out, I was a young and very naive child. I truly was convinced that being in high school really did mean talking in song and having random music interludes during passing periods. And not to mention, Disney had an amazing way of making puberty seem exponentially easy. But, as I grew up the protective shield around my eye's where ripped off at the age of thirteen. My first true hardship as a teen was facing the harsh reality that I was no longer a kid anymore. I had responsibilities and expectations to uphold, frankly it sucked. Then again, nothing really gets easier as you get older. We just become wiser with age.
P.S. I'm not saying Disney movies ruined my child hood.
