The Science of the Teenage Mind

What have I learned while writing this book? Well first of all, writing a book is really hard. When I first started writing, I was like, I got this, this'll be legendary. But by the time I was done writing the fifth chapter, I had an epiphany. Writing is really hard! You have to put a lot of time into writing, or thinking about what's going to happen next. It was fun, but I have a life other than writing, school, sports, and stuff. I dislike English class (Mr. Provenzano if your reading this, which you probably will be, you make English fun), but when I wrote about stuff that I really enjoy, it suddenly got a little better. It still was a pain, but it was less of a pain. I really think that should be applied to all subjects, because kids will not learn if they're not interested in what they're doing. It's all what you think. There's got to be a correlation to how many people hate math class, how much time they put into it, and what they get in the class. It's not just in class for all those parents, who force their little kid to do a sport or parents who force their kid to go to a certain college, you're ruining your kids childhood and college life. WE, the Teenagers, may do stupid stuff from time to time, and make mistakes a lot, but it's our mistakes to make. Theres a big difference between a parent forcing a kid to study for a test  and the kid gets an "A" and a kid who has the freedom to make a mistake, and doesn't study, and fails a test. On one side we have a resentful kid who hates being told what to do and wants to rebel and the other learns a valuable lesson through his own experience. In case anyone is wondering I've done about five chapters of my book and its going really well, I'm going to continue writing and hope to finish it this summer.
Peace Out,
