Snoink, being several years older than most of us here, knows what it's like to be your age; she went through it herself not so long ago. She also knows first-hand, by virtue of being older, what it's like to be part of the next few age groups. By your logic (knowing one's self and the younger age groups), Snoink's opinion is more credible for she has experienced being a part of all the age groups being discussed.
Generations have changed since she was my age, you know.
If her experiences were just like mine, then pregnancy, drop out, and gang/relationship violence rates would have remained the same, too.[...]I go to high school each day and see these sort of things, It's all around me. I observe and learn from the mistakes of others. See who, and who not to become. And that seems as "equally" credible to hers, to me.So I'd like to know how me reality is any more ridiculous than her "memories"...
It can be a mistake because it can tear you apart. It can change you as a person like it did me. I learned from it though and I am somewhat a better person now.
