Are there any teens on this site?

I ask this because I am a 17 year old frustrated by her old habits. It's summer and I can admit to having many idle days sitting in front of my computer, bored. So bored as I am, I often resort to FB (facebook), which as great as it CAN be, ends up becoming a forum for complaints, beauty affirmation, and simply things that aren't that fulfilling.

Are there any teens on this site that share the same disappointment. I wish FB was more of a place where I could share my ideas with friends...

That's why I love this site, but I just have to know how many teens are cruising around this site?

  • Jul 10 2012: I have a different educational background. I went to a Steiner school, two actually, but that makes little difference. Look it up. I'm 17 and I'm now in a state school and I don't like it.

    Specifically to me, I wanted to do further maths, but wasn't really allowed, and if I were allowed then I'd have to learn it ALL on my own. I genuinely have been held back, and I'm going to find it hard to catch up.

    So I definitely think that you should be encouraged and, more importantly, shown what you can do, e.g. A level choices.
