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?

  • Aug 6 2012: I'm 14 and I love this site! There are so many great people with so many great ideas. When I'm bored, I come here and watch talks about real, meaningful topics. I wouldn't know about FB as I've never been on it, but it seems like a total time-waster. I'm a homeschooler, so I don't really have to deal with all that teenage drama. Most of my friends are really down to earth, intelligent people. It's still nice to know that there are so many like-minded teens out there.
