Okay, before I go on and rant in this post, let me ask you something.
Has your parents told you something similar to this?
“Stop being lazy! It’s a nice day outside, spend it with your friends!”
Have they? Because mine sure haven’t. I’m going to tell you something that I never told you guys before. I have no social life. I don’t go out with friends and attend parties. I don’t go to the mall or park. Believe me, it’s not that I don’t want to, its just because I’m not allowed.
You see, my parents are very,very, VERY, protective over me. Especially over me. I’m not allowed to walk to my bus stop, not allowed to go anywhere with my friends including houses, movies, or anywhere general and I’m definitely not allowed to have a social life.
I’m not joking! My bus stop is literally a few streets away but I’m not allowed to walk there because they are afraid of bad things happening. So, they have to drive me basically everyday, just to a bus stop. What a waste of gas, right?
I wonder what’s it like to hang out with friends, outside of school. It must be fun right? To go to all these different places and adventure out into the world. To do fun things without the teachers and principle always looking at your area and waiting to scold us. You know what this post was inspired from? My mom. My friends wanted to invite me to go the theaters so that meant I had to ask my mom and she said,”The time isn’t right yet.” Makes me sound like Percy Jackson.
After that, I told her I don’t have a social life because of all these restrictions. Guess what she said?
“You don’t need one. After college, you can start going to all these places and have that social life.”
IS MY PARENTS THE ONLY ONE LIKE THIS? I never heard parents ever saying something similar to this. Usually, its the opposite. But nope, my overprotective parents must keep their precious princess stuck in her tower.
I don’t want to be that princess. But if I had to be any, I would be Rapunzel, because at least she got her freedom (even if she did have to escape).
It’s boring to be stuck in a house with just technology. Although, technology can be amazing sometimes, it just isn’t the same, you know? The summer especially sucks, because I have nothing to do.
If you have read this far, I applaud you for actually reading my rant over my parents. Thanks for reading!
