No Joke Teen Truth #164: No Joke Teens define their childhood as an apprenticeship to the life they ultimately want to live.
During your childhood you only have so many years, only so much time, to get this wonderful and valuable knowledge. Once you turn eighteen, life comes at you fast, and wrong turns and bad decisions come with real consequences. Some kids go through their childhood merely daydreaming about what they think their lives are going to be. Some just don't get it. Then after high school, they find there are few roads to choose. Heck, even enlisting in the military isn't as appealing as it once was. What's a child to do nowadays? For the wise teens, who embrace education, knowledge and personal growth, there are many roads that lead to success, and many people out there who are willing to help you achieve it. Consider your childhood an apprenticeship, and prepare everyday for the awesome life you've always dreamed of having.
