razrs, lots of ppl, adults, have them. i only have one cuz the family plan thing with sprint, i hate phones anyway.

and i'm getting a Zen Stone Plus for christmas, everyone has an ipod, even my sis. i'd rather get unknown thing than be a sheep with the crowd. plus, ipod's dont have voice recorders (i love voice recorders).

1. Old-school, baby. No iPod, never will get one, unless I win it.
2. If by mainstream you mean Deep Purple, Monster Magnet, Cream, Boston, Metallica, and/or Megadeth... then, yes.
3. Nope. Khakis.
4. I resent that.
5. I don't even have a cellphone.
6. Smoke is poison. Eats your lungs and brain right up; poof, you're dead.
7. Just caffeine.
8. Heh heh. Yeh, I think about other things too. But with a wide imagination like mine, it's hard not to be a fantasy daydreamer... especially when it comes to anime...
9. Nope.
10. Guilty as charged, yer honor! This 180 WPM has been on the computer for 15 years, and while it may not be SMS, I certainly type faster than I talk.
11. Now these questions are just getting silly. I only knew of one person at my old school who ate nothing but fast food.
12. How did you know about my secret love affair with Lara Croft?
13. Pimps, no. Gangsters... well, Al Capone got pretty rich.
14. Nope.

The only reason I have my iPod is because my mom got a rebate for it with her mac so it only cost $50. It's a lot better than my 2gb mp3 player.

yeah necro but if you are more concentrated in a class it will even be more valuable than studying, and again there is ppl that are very good in that subject than others so is the life...

@nick-the people just come to class without studing coopy the anwsers of a person who studied,dont get caught and get a high mark.

at least my class is very difficult to copy at all

Twilight
23-12-07, 02:57
unprepared? i pay attention in class and make an effort to understand the material, therefore i dont have to devote extra time to understand it later. and i have a good memory.

like in math, i pay attention and understand the concept. i was once absent 8 times and late alot (1st period), but got a 94% on the test. i was surprised, but elated. and i didnt cheat.

Thats me in a nutshell :tea:

However I figure its more like:
-Want the 160gb ipod but can rarely afford it on 16yo wages...
-Listen to the music that wont get them alienated from their peers
-Jeans are practical, hardworking and fashionable :p
-Mobiles with alot of features - usually because most teens are into technology to a certain extent... new is beu
-Smoke - in my country the people that do it are either emo, or resent doing it and most know that they arent liked for it...
-Drink - This probably has something to do with the fact that teens resent being in a stereotypical group that doesnt give them room to be anything other then not childerner and not yet adults...
-Males only thinking about sex.... spoken to many girls intimatly lately either? lol Besides I just said before, most are expected to do think like this and monkey see monkey do people.
-Like to shop - duh :p
- SMS faster than you can talk :p Well I havent really got much to say on this, its true for most of us. Hey, it is cheaper then calling them :D
-Only eat fast-food... I doubt it, but granted most of us love it to death.
-Most have boyfriends/girlfriends - You dont expect us to suddenly go from not having them >17 to having them all the time once we hit 18 did you?
-Think that a pimp/gangster is a good profession - really? huh. I <3 NY
-Curse alot - yeah well we're all guilty of it
-Do not like to read - I havent found this to be completely true in my experience, most are just not expected to be open about enjoying it, or simply couldnt be bothered.


Anyway, just my thoughts.
BTW: I resent any stereotypes when it comes to being a teen its bad enough in today's society without any help...

Kerrigan
23-12-07, 06:35
I'm glad I'm not a stereotypical teen, and I like to make fun of ridiculous cliches about teenage that so many seem to adopt, but I must admit doing some things that are thought of normal for this age: I love listening to music (though I hate mainstream music with a passion, I rarely smoke and drink, I am having some issues about a guy-ok, I think about him most of the time these days-, but he's my best friend, we've already discussed it and it's really complicated).But I suppose that's just human.
On the other hand, I think studying is important, I get good grades, I'm interested in school competitions, I like culture in all forms, especially literature (I love to read), drama and graphic arts and I think I have an extensive vocabulary in my native language.
I like to dress regardless of how the majority thinks it's almost compulsory at the moment, but in the end I'm told it's actually a good choice.
And probably the most eloquent example is that I'm considered extremely weird by my classmates, I like things they classify as boring, but I hang with various people I consider interesting people from different other classes.And I am definitely not obsessed with cellphones.

I disagree, not in my school. However, in Sweden I've seen lots of girls/guys that act like that.

Stereotyping, is stereotyping and it will never be right to class billions of people into one thing that you beleive. Stereotyping exists, but I pitty those who beleive in it. Those who can't see the difference in people.

Us teens could always class adults into:
1.Drink lots of coffee.
2.Go to work all day.
3.Wear suits all the time.
4.Only discuss politics.

But we know you're not all like that, so I suggest ignoring stereotyping, since we all know that it's not true. Yes, the stereotypical teen EXISTS, but that SO doesn't mean that we all act that way.

Actually, most if not all teens today are into any form of communication that can make them feel appreciated or special. Funny how the character Teenie (in the video) highlighted them in a humorous way: (1) "text me, text me!", (2) "IM me later!", (3) "Comment me on my MySpace!", (4) "Write on my wall on Face Book!", (5) "Video-response me on YouTube", (6) "Message me on Friendster!", (7) "Chat with me on Sticam (?)", (8) "Watch me on U-Stream!"

I'm taking it that since teens are in their most critical and formative years (like me), there's an urgency to have a sense of belongingness, and all these online communication websites are making it really easier. And to some extent, it becomes some sort of gauge as to your 'reputation' as a teen in the real-world, something I'm heavily opposed to.

24-12-07, 02:29
Personally I don't see anything wrong with having all those gadgets. However, I believe that most people just get them because they're cool and all their friends have them. It's just like the latest clothing fashions that come out, everyone wants to be up to date on whos wearing what and whats cool. I never really cared about all that crap when I was a teen, I set my own style.

But alas, teens no matter what are just plain goofy when they get around all their friends. It's like cheap entertainment sitting outside Five Guys eating a burger before the movies, watching the kids come out jumping on each others backs, calling each other names, and gossiping about what happend at someones party the other night.

That's kinda true. But there are diferent ways of showing it. Many teenagers drink and smoke a lot, and have other of Necro's mentioned traits, precisely to set themselves apart from the "normal" real world, or to confront adults. Others react like most did in this thread, they actually make an effort to not be typical, and that's a good thing at least it shows they're not interested in conformity.

I'm happy to say I'm not a stereotypical teen.

1. I have a 30GB iPod and have used 15GB of it.
2. I'll listen to anything I like, so that's untrue.
3. Nope. I own around 2 paris of jeans.
4. I'll study if I have to.
5. I've had a Samsunge D500 for nearly two years now, and I use most of the features on it. I buy a phone to use as a phone.
6. No.
7. Yes, but not excessively.
8. Stereotyping at its worst
9. Obviously.
10. Depends how fast you talk. ;)
11. Oh, yeah. My house is full of fast food. Wrong. :o
12. Nope. been single since April, and I like it that way.
13. Lmao that's such a stupid thing to say.
14. Not really.

And the video is just weird. I don't know any teenager (including myself) who acts like that.

Its quite sad to see Teenagers getting judged so much. Adults aren't perfect, anyway. The more we judge them, the more they will rebel. Stereotypes are a load of bull****. Every teenager is unique IMO, and should be treated as such. Otherwise, let teenagers have their say about Adults. :)

I'm going to answer the questions, since I'm really bored. :p

1.Own a 160gb iPod,use only 200 mb.First of all, no iPod in the WORLD is 160 GB. :p Mine is 8GB, I got it a few hours ago, and I've already filled up
2.Only listen to mainstream music.
Meaning "popular" music?
Umm, how many other the people IN MY school listen to Gothic Rock and Gree Day? Very few... :p Most go for German Rap, rap or pop.

So I'm going to say NO. :wve:
3.Favourite item of clothing is jeans.
Nae, it's converse. :ton:
4.Do not study
I wish, I spend about three hours a day on homework or making up for work. :rolleyes:
5.Have cellphones that a lot of features(They won't use a quarter of them)
Ok, that is true. But I wasn't the one who picked it out, PLUS today almost all phones have a gillion features that we won't use. TBH I'm fine with my 4 year old phone even though I don't use all the features.
6.Smoke
Euch no, do you have any idea what the hell that does to your body? My uncles is on a succesful path to quitting at the mo' and I'm very proud to be his neice.
7.Drink
A quarter of a glass once a year, and that would be Champagne during New Year's. My Parents don't let me have very much, and they shouldn't either.
8.Male's think only about sex
To think; I read minds, yet I have no idea. :P
9.Like to shop
Yes, I like getting myself new items. Is that a crime? I don't do it once a day though, like in American Disney Channel shows. *coughkimpossiblecoughcough*
10.Text sms messages faster than I can talk
No, I talk way too fast for that, I can't even type faster than I talk. And I spend about five hours at the computer each day.
11.Only eat fast -food
Euch no. I've had to eat FF once for about two days in a row, and I felt like I was going to die. I prefer cooked food, it makes me just plain feel better. I like fast food, but I can't live on it. EVER.
12.Most have boyfriends/Girlfriends
Nup, never had one. I have a crush, but I don't think it's ever going to happen. :p If I come across someone who's right for me sure! I'll go for it, but I don't go around acting like some tramp in order to get one.
13.Think that a pimp and a gangster is a good profession
No, the exact oposite. I'm a bit of a feminist, so I have more like hate towards Pimp/Gangster proffession.
14.Curse a lot
Everyone curses now and then, I don't put one curseword in each sentence. I sometimes let out milder swearwords, not too many hard ones though. And I sometimes sub for them, ie sugar honey ice tea, figg, shoot, ****aki mushrooms, fuji, I can think ofl more. :p

It's grannylike, but it keeps me out of trouble.

15.Do not like to read
Are you kidding? Books can be lifesavers, especially on boring airplaines/ roadtrips. Unfortunately I can't find too much time to read books since I sub them with reading all day long on the internet.

Nope, not really. It stands the test of time, but it's never my favorite.
4.Do not study

13.Think that a pimp and a gangster is a good profession

BS. Utter BS.

There is no exact description of teen agers. Why don't we make one for children as well and for adults and elders. **** that.

Every one is different. Some are preppy, some are more mature, some like to party all the time, some like to study a lot.

So what.

Not all teens are the same. I am unique and every one is. I'm sure not your *typical* teen ager and no one is. Like I said, every one is unique.
