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?

    YES, it is SO hard being young and liking stuff that not other people like. Sometimes it feels so hard live in a world of barbarians who discuss matters that I'm not interested in. But finally - salvation! Teenagers who are like me! We truly are a special, better generation. At least, the ones of us who can rub two brain cells together are. I totally (xoxo) feel your pain.

    Being so different from the norm is SO hard.
