random things about my teen years

When I was 13, I started getting breasts and was very embarrassed because they were so 'poky' -- I thought it looked like I was wearing funnels in my bra. I stayed embarrassed until three years later when I read an art book and discovered that conical breasts were fashionable.

When I was 14, I was so starved for approval that when my crush told me "If you got contacts and braces, you could be really pretty" I was so flattered that I wrote it in my journal as one of my favorite things anyone ever said to me.

When I was 15, I became best friends with Rebecca and made a pact with zir -- if I ever hurt/upset zir in any way, ze had to tell me immediately, and vice versa, so that resentment would never come between us. The wisdom of this still blows my mind.

When I was about 16, I was talking to [my partner]'s mom, expressing how hurt and upset I was that my then-friend wouldn't open up to me. Ze said, "You're never going to get what you want," which made me furious. I still feel triumphant when I think about how I totally proved zir wrong. *evil giggle/blush*

When I was 17, I told one of my friends that I was thinking of asking out a guy in our art class. (this would have been a HUGE step for me as I was very nervous and insecure) My friend told me that the guy was out of my league. I was shocked that my friend thought so little of me, and furious at the very idea of 'leagues,' and that WOULD have been the impetus I needed to actually do it -- but then I found out that ze had started dating this girl who was the epitome of everything I disliked (cookie-cutter appearance and arrogant, superior attitude).

When I was 18, I started 'going out' for the first time (with my now-partner). 19 days later, we made vows to each other after I realized that a prophesy about my future mate described zir perfectly.

When I was 19, I had my first kiss, after four months of a long-distance relationship.

Tell me something random about each of your teen years!
