Emily’s Diary: Teenage Days

Emily gives an inside look at “sportos,” “krusties,” “krinkles,” and how being a teenager isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

“I always wanted to be older when I was little. ‘Cause it was cool. You know, go to the drive-thru and order hamburgers, like on Happy Days. You know, getting in fights with your parents and getting grounded. You just thought it was the coolest thing. I mean, you need a goal when you’re little. That’s your goal: to grow up and be a teenager.”
