Good morning to Pn Kanimari and my fellow friends. The title of my presentation today is „Attitudes ofTeenagers Nowadays‟. Teenager is defined as a person aged between 13 and 19 years old in the Cambridge Advanced Learner‟s Dictionary. That is the definition of teenager written in a book. Well now, what does this „teenager‟ actually mean? My parents‟ definition of teenagers is young children who is rebellious, defiant, big-spender and of course, hard to understand. In my opinion, teenagers are just young people who are treated like children but expected to act like adults. I do wonder a lot about how it feels to be an adult. But now, I realised that adults are just kids with money. The community describes teenagers as thugs. Do you know what thug means? It means brutal people. Are we? Well maybe it‟s true. For your information, the strength of a group of mad teenagers is more powerful compare to a group of gorillas. Which is if you make teenagers go mad, there are possibilities you will end up becoming their meals. That is why you have to be careful with teenagers. Not only they are strong, but you have to know that they know Kong fu, tae kwon do, judo, jujitsu and 28 other dangerous words. Teenage years are very special to me. It is the time when I get to understand more about life; the time when I realised that the sun is not only drawn on the corner of the paper; it is the time when I make most of my life decision in the shower. The bad thing about being a teenager is my life gets harder. I have to struggle with family, school and especially, friends and relationship. Being a teenager is easy but there comes the times when you start having arguments with your parents or getting a broken heart and those make our teenage years harder. Have you ever wonder why teenagers have lots of problems with family? My opinion is that when we were young, we obey our parents more than now when we are teenagers. Now as a teenager, we know which is right, which is wrong. So, our parents thought that we still obey them the way we used to, but the truth is, the more our parents asked for help, the more we felt as if we were treated as servants. It‟s true. But maybe some of you are good kids that you still do obey your parents
we are lazy and now that has become the common problems among us.20 a. there are things I do not wish you to see me doing in my room. there are still many things that they still complain about. For example.” One funny fact about our relationship with our parents is that when we call our parents and they don‟t pick up the phone it‟s not a big deal to us. a morning agenda that sounds like this: 6 a. too much complaining and love to compare us to the other teenagers also most of the parents nowadays have high expectation. open my right eye 6. knocking the door after you opened it. seriously. As a teenager. meaning that they always want to be free with no obstacles. it‟s like the third world war is going to start.very much. parents are branches sticking out of the trees that the little bird hits when it flies. We do not care if it is 4 a. Even if they did. Our parents tend to get angry when we wake up late. turn on the rusted engine in my head 6. but when they call and we don‟t pick up the phone. most of the teenagers‟ hobby is sleeping. Besides. That is why we get so excited about a cancelled plan.10 a. They never felt satisfy on everything we did to impress them. wriggle my fingers 6.m. open my left eye 6.25 a. They don‟t understand us. move my arms 6. or any time.15 a. lift my legs . Most of the teenagers complain about their parents being overprotective.05 a. “Mom. In this case. For your information. I think they are just being jealous because we love our bed more than anything else. had somehow kills the purpose of knocking.m.m. Our parents always complain that we are lazy. we always have an amazing schedule that never works.m. we teenagers can complain too. so please knock the door BEFORE you opened it. we do not consider it tomorrow until we wake up and believe it or not. Let‟s say.m. like a bird. We do not like waking up EARLY in the morning and of course five minutes of extra sleep does matter to all of us.m. so does the alarm clock.m. Teenagers have problems connected with their parents who don‟t understand their needs.
ready to get on with my life as a middle school prisoner This agenda has never been accomplished. I am not going to believe that. no one picks those things up and it keeps going on for days. Sometimes. Most teenagers do not like middle school. which stands for exams terminators. some of us are thinking to make an association called the “EXAMINATORS”. “Oh. Rules are tight.30 a. When it comes to a family reunion. I‟m sorry. Do you know why we have a messy room? Well. it doesn‟t really reach the bed.m. blame the pillow. Do you understand? I study for exams. instead. Now. Are you going to believe them when they said they cleaned the room? Well. Clean your room and you will find it” Teenagers have troubles with MONDAYs. It turns teenagers into dying whales when it comes to exam. We studied because we have to not because we want to. after school. Why? Because we can‟t really hear the alarm sounds.‟ Another reason why teenagers cant clean their room is that they get distracted with the cool things they found. The rest of the mess around the pathway has now becomes the decorations. It is called the “EXAM”. we just have this feeling to STOP EXAMS and to SAVE TREES. but when I sit for the exam. your mom wants you to clean the room so she said. A messy room is another type of laziness which is now common among teenagers. we are just too tired and the bag is too heavy and when we throw it. our room looks more like Mount Everest made out of teenage toys. We often wonder why is Monday so far from the next Sunday and yet Sunday is very close to the next Monday. Why Monday? It is when the school starts. “Clean your room. we throw our bag on to the bed. What about study? It is the same thing. it drops on the floor and all the things inside the bag are scattered on the floor. The main purpose is to terminate exam because sometimes. your mom says. added by the rubbish which never reaches the rubbish bin which is caused by teenagers who thought they are the best basketball players but actually they‟re not. teachers are strict and you always have those irritating people in school. In the end. Annoying isn‟t it? But there is one thing that turns our live into the worst misery ever recorded in the history of our teenage lives. my mind goes blank and I can only .6. I didn‟t know that the reunion will be held in my room” And to overcome your laziness. Family is coming over” and then you answer. Teenagers are too good that cleaning their room equals to „I have made a path from the door to my bed. “I have hidden $100 in your room. one of the reasons is.
Dear person who is sitting next to me during exam. well I haven‟t had a B for 4 questions. In school. I do not like exams. For your information. Well. I wrote a letter. but sometimes when the hormones kick in.restart the engine after five minutes. your brain doesn‟t really matter anymore. glamour is the main thing we need in school. I can only see “What am I doing here?‟ written on the paper. Believe me or not. You better not apply that in school. “A. Please write bigger. you get help easier than anyone else. we suddenly become lazy. but when are we going to be ready if we never experienced it? Being today‟s teenagers. there are things that our parents can‟t teach. you get to know a lot of strangers other than your family. If you are popular. But most of the teenagers look at school on the negative sides. Moreover.C. high expectations give us stress and pressure which made most of us becomes lazier and hates study. Teenagers often have these questions: Why do we need school? Why do we need to go to school? It is so that every one is well educated. because if you do. then how are you going to make friends in school? School is actually wonderful if you look at it from the positive side. That moment during exam. Sometimes when I forgot to study. I can‟t see your answer. Do you remember what the elders tell us all the time? Don‟t talk to strangers. Why do we need to be educated? Can‟t our parents teach us at home? Wouldn‟t that be easier? I don‟t have to wake up early every morning. You might as well think to throw the . Moreover. School is equal to middle school prison for teens. so I‟ll choose that. Sincerely.D. gossips can spread faster than diseases and it gets harder when we have to face betrayals and insults from friends as we are still not ready to face all of this. The reason is that we have rules and detention in school. like sex education. I have a technique in answering exam questions. but we need it just to know our level of understanding.”Seriously. Teenagers want to have good grades and impress the teachers and parents. and knowing strangers can become more interesting for those who felt tired of their own family. It is because the negative sides are easier to be recognised rather than the positive.
Some wiser teenagers prefer to be alone rather than having fake friends because they are wise enough to take care of themselves. “What did I eat this morning?” It is not that we do not bother to remember. Teachers often complain that we always forget a lot of things. that no matter how much you hate school. Me: Hey. for example. But not all of us are wise. did you do your homework? Friend: Yeah Me: Let me copy Friend: Okay. and then you turn to your friend and say. you will miss it when you leave. such as answering questions which you are not suppose to answer or criticising teachers‟ jobs or being sarcasm in class. We know those are rude but we couldn‟t help wondering of how some teachers got the job. you‟ve learned this last year”. This is why we forget pretty fast. It automatically goes away right after exams. When a teacher says. Besides the rules and irritating students. we often pretend not to know and say “We had homework?” Or when I didn‟t do my homework. some of us think that changing our personalities to become one of the glamourous kids is rather easier. but you have to know. A problem which is now common is we never pass up homeworks. lying is the easiest way to be glamourous and it is also the fastest way to be the most unpopular kid in school. teachers‟ complaints can become the most annoying things on earth. most of us only study for exams. Wouldn‟t that be better if my computer and phone can erase unwanted history automatically rather than my brain erasing important memories without my permission? Another complaint from the teachers is that we have “attitudes”. . We keep these subjects in the Temporary Memory Lobes in the brain. Yeah right. I turn to my friend and say.cleverness away to avoid being called „nerd‟. “Come on. Every one who has a misery life in school thinks of finishing school as fast as possible. When the teacher asks for it. the subject we‟ve learnt. But the answers are probably all wrong. Me: I don‟t care.
Thank you for saving me. family has become something that they don‟t really rely on. Friendship among teenagers is amazingly exciting and somehow hilarious. One fact we know about the word „studying‟ is that it has the word „dying‟ in it. Close friends never let you feel lonely.Our teachers describe us as lazy people. and then I asked her. for example. “Have you heard about „oxygen‟? “ As teenagers grow up. Some teenagers have gone through a few rough times in their friendship and yet still stick together. Besides. By the way. There are still many proofs that teenage friendship is very funny. This is the proof that true friendship do exist. the feeliug is just there. in the morning. friendship has become more important than the family itself.m. We understand each other‟s problem and we know what each other needs. But these are the things that we have to go through in life and it is amazing that most of us went through these problems alive. I do learn some of the things you taught me. Close friends can communicate by using only face expressions. We trust our friends more because all of us are in the same age. close friends can greet each other with insults and never get offended. (ring. When teachers ask why we don‟t like studying. here is the proof. your phone rings at 2 a. For example. Sometimes when we study. were you sleeping? Me: No. ring) Me: Hello? Friend: Hey. We faced many problems. I was in a coma. ring. staring at a wall can be more interesting than anything else. but our hearts are just not interested in it. we get hurt many times and yet we still wait patiently for the right person to come along. it can be devastatingly painful as some people are insincere and fake. we don‟t even know why. studying for lazy teenagers is equal to watching TV with an open textbook nearby. I believe most of the teenagers were once good in Mathematics. once I heard a girl said to her boyfriend that she can‟t breathe without him. . The fact is that we don‟t like study and most of the time we are just pretending to pay attention so that we won‟t be caught daydreaming. before the teachers start putting letters into it and teacher. Sometimes. We know it‟s important. Now.
you cry.Many think that teenagers have weird and super abnormal behaviour. but your parents say when to come home. I stay up late and live in my laptop. but there is the fear of decisions and responsibility. but one day you‟re going to wish you were still a teenager. “I‟m sorry I can‟t go out today. We spend time with friends and those will all be the memories. we criticize and we fight over stupid things. Things happened. 5% names. you . I am lazy. It was tragic” and that works. I am not the only teenager who does that. 90% song lyrics. “Look.” We are teenagers. we panicked. We complain. but you feel alone. we always have an excuse saying. when we saw something that says “DO NOT TOUCH”. So. We know it sounds childish. You are allowed to do so many new things. make the most of what you have now and forget those people who hurt you. you keep quiet. but combining colour is like one of the top 10 interesting things to do. we cheat. Next. teenagers can‟t go a day without music and believe me. we hate people for no reason and we call each other names. but on the other hand you miss your childhood. we live in the era of smart phones and stupid people. we lie. my sister‟s friend‟s boyfriend‟s cousin‟s sister‟s hamster died. but if you were on fire and I had water. For your information. it‟s not that I hate you. but we‟re still learning. We love colourful objects. their music is highly inappropriate. We make mistakes. we know there is nothing inside. but when our friends fall. Another thing is that when our phone falls. And of course. “TOUCH WHEN NOBODY‟S LOOKING” Sometimes when we are lazy to hang out with our friends. You want to be a grown-up. teenage brains consist of: 2% education. but believe me. I would drink it. We have messy room and stay up late having deep thoughts or conversations but we always realise it is a bad idea in the morning. Teenagers always have funny and dramatic conversations with their friends. to my parents. There are many people. One day that is all going to pass. I have a messy room. We treat Facebook like a fridge. You laugh. Forget all the dramas and LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH A SEXY SMILE ON YOUR FACE. 3% phone numbers. Next. but we check it every second. we laughed. Besides. teenage life is a constant battle between wanting to eat and not getting fat. You want to do what you want. You can waste your times focusing on the bad things and doing nothing about them. for example. we translate it into our teenage language which means.
These are problems of TEENAGE LIFE.want to sing. We have to deal with emotional problems and confusions and things we don‟t understand or solve. We might look very fun at first. . Well. I just hope that people will understand that most of our “attitudes” are mostly caused by the hormones which resulted in very strong mood swings among teenagers. It is hard to be a teenager. you don‟t want to be our next meal. Sometimes you can`t explain what you feel. You have to know that our behaviour is also caused by the way you treated us. Last but not least. you might have known some teenagers take drugs only to seek relief. Sometimes it‟s really great. but it also can be as hard as stone. but not all of us are stupid. but better be careful when the hormones kick in.
the grief. What I wouldn't do to forgive you.Emotional Drama Time has passed me by. I just can't take the pain. Yet never once did I forget your face. 'Emotional drama' is the name of the game. You disappointed me in so many things. I gave you the time that was precious to me. I just can't stand the hurt. did you do that to me? I hate good-byes and sorrows. but never faded away. . The hurt. It's now all over. the anger. Gave up so many things to be helpful to you. Forever imbedded in my dazed mind. Now all that's left is a painful memory. You left me without a thorough explanation. When you left and never looked back. oh why. yet it's not really. Why. It's time for the final farewell. Can never forget what you did to me. Has lessened now.
