HA! this is a great one Wahine!
The latter parts of my teens we're some of the most pleasant times in my life, really blossoming in early high school where i made many of my long-term friends. Although during that time there we're also a lot of serious downs for me - going threw puberty was very hard for me as it really peaked my (at the time) undiagnosed mental disorder making me extremely manic at times and when i was very young (during early puberty) suicidal. While my social life in high scholl was great, more than great, my mood disorder really took the wheel and i ended up dropping out of school twice.
Put simply, middle school was kind of terrible, though i did have fun. I had a lot of trouble with my gender identity, femininity, sexual orientation, and mental health - so i suffered a lot of verbal abuse from peers for being openly queer at the time (being part of the "goth" crowd didnt help much either).
In high schol i meet a lot of like-minded people and made AMAZING friend and had many many many great times. Mostly doing a lot of partying, and sneaking into night clubs as well as having impromptu adventures. Honestly i really miss those times so much, and have had friends even ask "do you think the best time of your life is when we were like 15?" and am very nostalgic of that and miss the friends i've had over the last 10 years that now live all over the country.
So...mostly my teens we're amazing.
