Today is my cousin, Maddy's birthday. She's turning thirteen today and this reminded me of how it felt five months ago when I turned thirteen.When your thirteen, lots of things change.
First, your now a teenager! Not a tween or a pre-teen or a pre-tween or any other stupid name that people call you if your not a teenager because really, when people call you any of those names it just reminds you that your still not a teen.
Secondly, you can watch PG-13 legally! Ok, the PG-13 rule is like the rule about waiting an hour before going into a pool after you eat. It's not very enforced and nobody follows it. Even though a lot of us have already watched a PG-13 movie before we turned thirteen, it's still pretty cool to be of legal age to do something.
Lastly, you can be care-free! Being a teen you can live totally care-free you can make mistakes and learn from them. You can stay up all night because you don't have a job. You can learn who you are and who you want to become.
