Admit it, we all have been through or are going through the teenage phase- the one in which the ridiculous things occur! It’s that one phase when we’re confused as to whether we’re kids or adults, the phase when we’re always curious to do everything possible and sometimes end up doing the most absurd of things that turn out to become memorable incidents in the end.
Here’s a list of things that we’ve all done as teenagers.
1. Putting Empty Things Into The Refrigerator – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
We’ve all been there and done that. As teenagers, we’re always busy with various things in our minds. We also mostly always only stick to thinking and not doing. We tend to become the most passive of people.
Getting ourselves to the refrigerator itself is a big task, let alone opening it and scanning for food. When we find food, we usually eat it right there and leave empty packages inside the refrigerator: a milk carton, a chocolate wrapper, or a biscuits package. We’re lazy to throw it away. Enough said.
2. Crushes, Dating, and Drama – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
We’ve all met that one girl or boy who gives us butterflies in the stomach when we see them. They make it seem like the world has stopped, you see flowers all around you, and romantic music starts playing. Yes, that’s right. We’ve all had at least one crush at some point.
We’ve sometimes been lucky enough to get into a relationship with the crush and all the drama that follows. Our hormones start pumping up and getting us excited for no apparent reason, bringing us to blush at the mere sight of THE CRUSH. ADMIT IT.
3. Wardrobe Malfunctions – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
We’ve all been through that one day when you unintentionally dress up terribly and look almost as ridiculous as a clown. Some days, you don’t particularly want to spend time dressing up, so you put on whatever your hands first reach. Yes, that can be disastrous, sometimes. Not to mention embarrassing.
4. New Music Addictions – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
You suddenly start exploring the vast world of music, and you end up being completely mesmerized by the various bands and artists you listen to. It suddenly feels like music is almost your newfound soulmate, the only thing that understands you. You also sometimes get yelled at by your neighbors or parents for blasting out loud music.
5. Talking to Strangers, Online or Offline – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
Remember how our parents asked us not to talk to strangers? Nope, we don’t remember, or we’d like to not place. You start talking to multiple strangers. You suddenly feel no more like the introvert you used to be(if you were one, that is).
You suddenly want to talk to as many people as possible and ask them about their life stories(OK, not really). Lastly, you want to expand your social circle all of a sudden.
6. Lying about Your Whereabouts to Your Parents – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
You’re going to hang out with that little John that your parents asked you not to hang out with, but no, you’re going to meet him again, but you’re going to lie to your parents that you’re at Karen’s house learning how to do some math. Yes, we’ve all done that.
7. Trying to maintain a journal – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
We’ve all seen a friend maintain a journal about her life every day, or we’ve watched movies based on real-life journals that inspire us to start writing one. We start writing one, no problem. We start OK in a few days (or hours or minutes), we abandon the journal and get too lazy to continue writing that.
8. Emotions – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
We’ve had those days (or nights) when we’re just rolled up into a ball on our beds, lying there thinking about the purpose of our lives. Then you realize you haven’t done anything worthwhile yet, and you start crying about random things.
Dark chocolate or white chocolate sometimes helps you get through your emotional phase. Don’t fret. After some time, you’ll be back to square one.
9. Trying food whose names you can’t pronounce – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
Every time you walk into a restaurant, you wish to get adventurous. You order food that you’ve probably never heard of before or can’t pronounce. You’re always up to trying new things and exploring the same every day.
If you don’t do this, it is time for you to start. It’s always fun and good to explore. You end up getting acquainted with a few excellent dishes sometimes.
10. Gossip – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
Oh, us teenagers! Admit it. You always want to know what’s hot in town. You always want to know what Peter is up to and who Sam is dating right now. Being critical of someone based on their appearances and passing judgment about the same is also inevitable.
11. Addictions – Ridiculous Things That Teenagers Do
We try many things out of curiosity, but some of them we get hooked on. It could be addictions to coffee, reading, music, or even drugs and alcohol. Not all habits are healthy, and we must use our discretion.
All in all, these are some things that all of us face, mostly when we’re teenagers. The teenage years are undoubtedly one of the best years of our lives, and we must make the most out of them in a healthy fashion!
