Age 17 - Hypocrates

1:58 PM

I thought it would be cool to document what I can remember about my teens and a Marina Song that relates to it. I will do this up until age 24! I may do this for a long time! Lifes a soundtrack!

Gosh, lets see.

Things Remembered:
When I was 17, I was kind of stuck in this weird limbo. I wanted to be in with the EMO band kids, but I knew deep down inside I never fit in! The BEATLES! I was so obsessed with the Beatles. I created a Myspace account based on them, I had a TON of followers and met my dear friend Brent! He was the best thing for me at that time. So kind, always talked about peace and love. He brought out a much softer side in me. I decided I wanted to focus on my health and fitness, I was sick of hating my body. I was the most unhappy at age 16. Just the worst year of my life. Miserable...but now I see why. I guess at age 17, I was starting to get my "happy" back. I did cheer again, I did band. The band members used to always support me. It was a lot of fun. I played instruments, I learned instruments. I just wanted to better my life. I suppose it was the demise of my Emo faze. Most teens go from Wholesome to Emo. I suppose I was the reverse.

I had two amazing females that were amazing friends. They loved me despite my awkward ways. They loved me despite what a total obnoxious crazy cat I was. I think deep down inside those girls knew I would have punched anyone cold hard in the face if they had messed with them. The always "understood my eccentricity." Julia was always my voice of reason, she always knew the right thing to say and probably the wises most disciplined cookie I have ever known. and Kristina (WITH A K damnit!) was my performing mate, always made me laugh and we became friends because of my wild performance at May Day! X-tina left for college a year before me and Jewels, she is still beautiful (inside and out) and my Julia is doing amazing things now and found a way to include her passion for music in her profession. I don't know how I would have made it through such a weird faze in my life without them.

Life Lessons:
Not everyone knows whats best for you. Not everyone wants the best for you. Once you start to have an opinion and see things for what they are, relationships are hard to maintain. Appreciate the people that love you despite you being a total nutcase!

What I wish I Knew Then:
That I didn't need to be Emo to be accepted. That even though nerd boys didn't like me then, I would have a MILLION to choose from as an adult. People will ways try to tell you what you will be and what you CAN be based on THEIR experience. I wish I knew that I would have the ability to really create my own destiny.

Marina Song:
I chose (Hypocrates - By Marina and the Diamonds)

Why? At 17 you are right at the threshold of adulthood. It's when you start to pick what path you want to go. You learn from bad examples and emulate whats right about those you admire.


You're the lonely one and only body in the world
Who can make me, who can break me down into a young girl


You say that love is not that easy

And that's the lesson that you teach me

So hypocritical, overly cynical

I'm sick and tired of all your preaching


Who are you to tell me, tell me

Who to, to be, to be?



You're my last bone of contention

That could break at any mention

You're the last wall that will stand tall

'Til the end of the world


I know you only want to own me

And that's the kind of love you show me

You tell me one thing and do another

Keep all your secrets undercover


Who are you to tell me, tell me

Who to, to be, to be?

Yeah, you let, you let go

Yeah, you let, you let go

Yeah, you let, you let go of me


Yeah you played the martyr for so long

That you can't do anything wrong


Who are you to tell me, tell me

Who to, to be, to be?

Yeah, you let, you let go

Yeah, you let, you let go

Yeah, you let, you let go of me


Who are you to tell me, tell me

Who to, to be, to be?
