Revenge in Rebellion!

This article is dedicated to Ronak, for her ideas and useful suggestions.

Okay so it all started, precisely around 12, when i was on Facebook chatting to Ronak, a friend, and I was asking her about an idea to write about on our blog. Then, she suggests that i write something about being grounded. So i hop on to google, excited, and type it in and it came up with the lamest stuff that anyone can say in the matter of being grounded. Google is infested with too many adults in my opinion. Come on, we should have a little fun once in a while and post up something fun on the net! Anyway, back to the main subject…so she tells me (this friend) that she was grounded for sneaking out to the city as an act of revenge for being banned to go to the 30 Seconds to Mars concert. So, all in all, I was hopping on my feet to write something about teenagers and our truly eccentric ways. So i went on Google (grudgingly this time) and searched for CRAZY THINGS TEENAGERS DO!! This time i found some interesting info…

1)  “my baby boy smokes pot and is a little player, has gotten in trouble and is a smart alec. But he gets straight A’s and is going to one of the top universities at 16. So he is allowed to be a bit rebellious.” —LOL

2) “I wandered around a local supermarket feigning a british accent and pretended to “survey” all the hot young guys there about the qualities they found attractive in a woman. I still have the list to this day lol”

3) “stole watermelons from a fruit farm and went to town and threw them out of the back of a pick-up so our friends could play brake and slide behind us”

4) “I was dared to eat some dog crap…and lets just say I wasn’t feeling good for a couple of weeks after that incident.”

5) “I procrastinate til like 2 AM when I have such little homework”

6) “Egged cars in the winter (frozen on egg eats paint >:)~ )
Scared kids while trick or treating so bad, they drop their candy…free candy for me!
Sr. Year HS – we put over 50 construction horses on the front lawn of school and surrounded them with every real estate sign we could grab…talk about a horse corral
Ran around with squirt guns full of lighter fluid and squirted lit jack-o-lanterns!”

7) “I tipped over a porta potty. I also stole a piece of gum… OH yeah, I’M SOOO BAD.”

I was looking through for more crazy things teens do. Unfortunately I didn’t find anything interesting but i did find an article about the facts and figures surrounding this rebellion problem we face. The technicality of the article amused me…

Compared to adults, teens take about 170 milliseconds more weighing the pros and cons of engaging in high-risk behavior, the researchers conclude. Adults scarcely think about risk, perhaps because they think they recognize risk intuitively. Teens, on the other hand, take time to mull the risk vs. benefit equation.

“In other words, more experienced decision-makers tend to rely more on fuzzy reasoning, processing situations and problems as gists [the essence of their actions] rather than weighing multiple factors,” Reyna said.

Teens often decide that the benefits of risky behavior immediate gratification or peer acceptance—outweigh the risks, Reyna said. She figures its better to teach teens some “gist-based” thinking skills, such as putting risks into general categories rather than lecturing with specific data and details.

Trace Cyrus and Demi Lovato?

I don’t know what to think here. The other day, on the Erin Simpson show (okay, i don’t watch it but my sis does and i was in the kitchen making something (something i rarely do, really) and i hear Erin saying, Demi Lovato and Trace Cyrus are dating! And i’m like what the hell? TRACE CYRUS???? DEMI LOVATO???? It’s the Jonas Brothers getting married thing all over again (posted below!), it was unbelievable. The first thing that obviously comes in to mind is the disbelief i felt and then i realized, TRACE CYRUS??? DEMI LOVATO??? okay, i know, same thing, lol. It’s just…i don’t know if it’s a bad thing but i assumed it was just a bit weird and completely out of the blue. I mean, this is a Disney actress, known for her squeaky clean image and there to entertain tweens and children, going out with Trace, who’s all tattoos and piercings. I was expecting something like Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato or something…

okay, i’m totally not trying to offend them (because i think i’ve done enough offending for the week with the Disney thing) but i just can’t believe it. Maybe it’s a good thing, maybe they do go together…but i just have a hard time grasping it. Who am i to judge, though? i’m just a bored teenager, writing away on a laptop…if they wanted to they could go out…

And, after the initial shock, i remembered that Trace Cyrus was actually Miley Cyrus’s bro (okay, i know, that was so late remembering since that’s so obvious but all this shock and realization did happen in, like, five seconds). Anyway, that remembrance just brought up a Q…would Miley be okay with this? (if this actually is totally true because as we all know people tend to make up huge rumours but they have been, apparently, flirting a lot on Tweeters…) As we all know, Miley is a bit of drama queen, so, if she finds out, what will she say? Added to the whole older brother thing, if i’m not incorrect and totally out of order here, i think there was this little fight/feud/YouTube thing with Miley and Demi and Selena. So, i don’t know if that will influence Miley’s reaction but i think the feud thing was pretty huge…

Now, Demi Lovato’s been denying that she is going out (if they are) with Trace. She claims that they are only “really good friends”. But they’ve been flirting and acting more than just really good friends on Tweeters, apparently. So i can’t be sure of what’s going on. I mostly put up this post to tell you guys about my weird and random reaction.

Also, Demi’s 16 and Trace’s 20 and i think, maybe, he’s a little too old for her…

Maybe they could have something or all the internet rumours are just rumours. Only time will tell, really. And, again, i hope i’m not offending anyone (like a Demi/Trace fan or Disney fan) and i’m only just posting what my reaction was.

So, leave comments on what you think on this post (is it offending, completely stupid or do i atually have a point?) and don’t forget to check out the rest of the blog entries!!


The Thing about Hannah Montanna…

Look, we’re not trying to have a diss Disney session here or whatever, but just elaborating a bit on what Hafsa said about Disney stars and Hannah Montanna…
WARNING: If you are a Hannah Montanna/Miley Cyrus fan, i’d suggest you don’t read on.
And if you have decided to, let me just say this: I don’t mean to be rude and i’m not taking out some sort of personal revenge/grudge or anything, but i’m just saying it the way i see it. And the way i see it and have put it is slightly obnoxious, and i totally accept that.
With great power, comes great responsibility. And this applies also to fame… and especially to Miley Cyrus. Here’s why:
She has a lot of young fans, and i’m talking like five year olds, and she’s supposedly a role model to them. Well, i wouldn’t want my five year old sister or cousin to be looking up to someone who has scandals as often as she releases songs. So, maybe some of the scandals weren’t so much in her control (i’m not so convinced) but what really irritates me is her attitude. In life you don’t get everything you want so what makes her so different from the rest of us, lesser beings? (OK i know i’m starting to sound the slightest bit stingy and abhorrent) Her little episode with Radiohead, is what i’m talking about. For those of you who don’t know about this (i’m surprised, she pretty much ADVERTISED it internationally) here’s how the story goes; she was at the Grammy’s and Thom Yorke was four dressing rooms away from her so she asked her people to talk to Radiohead’s people and arrange a meeting. Their response? “We don’t really do that” and what does Miss The-World-Revolves-Around-Me do? She cries and throws this amazingly huge tantrum, because Radiohead refused to meet her. She even threatened to RUIN THEM. And who knew, Miley LOVES Radiohead, they’re her “rock god” and the only person she would “cry over”. If she really loved them as much as she claims to, she would know that Thom Yorke is really shy and reclusive and hanging out with a clingy, star-struck teenager at the Grammy’s, hours before his show was not on his bucket list.

And just so i don’t sound too cynical, she can make some nice music (but her music is NOT rock and she is NOT a rock star and neither are the Jo Bros) and as embarrassing as it is, i used to watch Hannah Montanna as a kid and liked it (i’m over it now, thankfully), but like i said, i’m not a big fan and the fact that she acts like she’s superior to everybody else doesn’t help the cause.
