Most teenagers are slaves of the expectations of their peers and of the big industries that market their fashion and music and technology and entertainment. But not through teenagers who are amusing themselves to death. And the money you don’t have threatens to pierce you by creating a passion to be rich.The word “teenager” did not exist before World War II.

The truth that you do not have to fit into the contemporary lockstep expectations put on you by your culture or your peers.
