Not having to work. Aaaaand that's about it. Honestly, I'll take having to work all the time over being a teenager again, lol.

absolutely nothing. teenage is the worst life cycle of the north american human. there is absolutely nothing good abut that stage of life. Not even half of nothing is good about that stage.

... Not much at all, really. I'm happier working than I ever was at school, much as work drives me up the wall sometimes (my favorite perk of working: being allowed to use the bathroom pretty much whenever I need to. Public schools consider bathroom usage a "privilege" - no lie). I get along better with adults than I did with most other teens/children. And I though I don't do so often, I can stay out late and/or have a drink with my friends without running into problems - save maybe needing to flash my I.D.

The lack of responsibility was nice. That's about it.

do people still tell kids that their teenage years are the best years of their lives? if so, those people need to reevaluate their own lives.

Not much other than the lack of financial responsibility.

I'm still a teenager.. Well, sort of. Haha. but what i miss about being a pre-teen is having no cares in the world and being able to play with my friends 24/7.

Hm. Nothing. Except perhaps those first 2 years of college that I was technically a teen.

i love being able to go out and eat ALL the candy store samples and then have ice cream and drive places and not give a fuck about what time i get home.

granted i do have some responsibility here, but nobody's going to tell me i'm doing wrong. it's awesome.

I have a lot more pains and aches that came with age, so I miss not having those when I was younger.

Nothing. I hated being a teenager. It was awkward, I was rude to my parents for no good reason, I was abused and it was an altogether terrible time.

Nothing to mess.. but may be the old house I lived in before moving to other one.

Lack of responsibility, being able to sleep all day.

Easier school XD not having to THINK about schoolwork was so much easier.. thanks, public school system!
I also miss some of the wild times I had, but I really like my slightly more grown-up wild times now!

Hated it, glad it's over. No more being forced to interact with bullies and others being held hostage in the public school system.

T&A is right, though - who the hell thought their teen years were their prime? Hate to see what kind of lives they live now if they think their teens are their 'glory days'. "Suck it up, junior - being bullied and having curfew and not being able to drink and telling us who you're with and where you're going and not being able to bring someone home for sex and not decorating the place your way and not dating someone ten years older than you so you have to put up with the immaturity and judgmental attitudes of your age group are THE BEST YEARS OF YOUR LIFE!"

Pfui.

I had more energy when I was a teenager. I had more friends, too. I have friends now, but not the volume I had when I was in High School and knew so many people from so many different groups of people. You just don't meet as many people in the "real world" especially as my profession has me meet only other women (and their partners) from a certain age, class and group (new moms and those who work with them.) I kind of miss the "knowing everybody" stage. I worked in a record store and head shop (yeah they had those) and was kind of a rock star in my High School and early college years because of it.

The "Tween Years?" Nothing. I was a weird kid and teased mercilessly. Funny that often those traits are valued in High School and College, but not in Middle School. I was voted "The Most Bizarre Person" in my High School graduating class. It was quite a distinction. They were fun years, but not my "Prime." I try to make the best out of every age, and have had several "Primes." I'd hate to have my "Prime" that far behind me, too.

I enjoyed the academic part of college, but was living in a dorm and then an on campus apartment with not so great roommates and My Man was not supposed to be allowed to stay overnight (he did on occasion, but I could have gotten into terrible trouble, as I went to a Jesuit University) and he lived quite a distance away, and even though we had an Open Relationship then, I missed him terribly.

I miss hearing "oh you're so bright and mature for your age, you're going to make something of yourself one day". I miss that sense of feeling that everything was a new and exciting experience or a life lesson to be learned. Now, my mistakes are repetitive, I'm not the apple of anyone's eye and my options for success are seriously limited by reality.

Despite all of that, I'm still extremely happy and I wouldn't change it for anything.
