So if a teenager is at school for roughly 8 hours, and they are doing homework for 6+ hours, and they need AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP FOR THEIR DEVELOPING BRAINS, then they may have 0-1 hours for other activities like eating, bathing, exercise, socializing (which is actually incredibly important for emotional, mental, and physical health, as well as the development of skills vital to their future career and having healthy romantic relationships among other things), religious activities, hobbies, extra curriculars, medical care of any kind, chores (also a skill/habit development thing and required by many parents), relaxation, and family time?  Not to mention that your parents may or may not pressure you to get a job, or you might need to get one for economic reasons.

I will never not reblog this

"…but teenagers have no reason to be stressed."

A lot has happened this past year or so.

I haven’t had the best of luck with a lot of things. Too many disappointments, too many losses. But holy shit, do I feel like I’m winning. Is it proper to smile and tell every shitty person in my life to go fuck themselves? A new chapter is going to unfold in my life starting September and I am SO ready. Ready to move past everything that once was. I just DON’T care anymore. I feel like THIS is how I’m supposed to feel as a young adult; excited for my own adventures and not giving a damn about other peoples. Let’s fucking go.
