True Life: I Did Some Stupid Things As A Teenager

December 21, 2012  |  


Asya: Got pregnant & hid my pregnancy for 8 months…smh


Dava: Not rebelling a little bit. I think if I had allowed myself to live a little I wouldn’t have gone so buck wild when I got to college lol


Alisha: One night stands


Renee: Thought I was a gang member in my own gang with no back up lol Some funny years I tell you.


Persia: At 16, I ran and hid in a closet of this guy I was dating when his dad came home early from work. Then I jumped out of his window from the 2nd floor. His friends were watching me from next door and one of them became my next boyfriend. I was just ignant…yes ignant.


Raquel: Thought I was in love and gave the idiot my virginity.


Elle: caring what others thought


Anneke: When I was a college freshman, my friends and I would walk on campus (temple university in North Philly) at all times of the night. One time we followed these guys to a party off campus…we were dumbasses


Karema: Getting fired from my Job at the movie theatre for giving hook ups. Charged a dollar for damn near everything on the menu lol


Kimberly: Cut school, got drunk, came back to campus (like a dumbass) and passed out in security’s arms. Thank goodness for my sisters getting my back and hiding me and helping me sober up before my mom came home.


Ava: Thought I could have straight pubic hair by perming it and well it’s not straight anf barely there…smdh


Nata: Gave myself to someone so unworthy of me at 19, lost my virginity, got pregnant and got an abortion….sad but I am wiser and stronger now.


Hasani: Did not attend high school graduation.


Kwellin: Hid things in my house for my ex that could have gotten me sent to prison.


Mimi: I used crazy glue on my hairweave!!


Mississippi: The stupidest thing I did as a teen… Was be afraid to be myself. Worrying about fitting in. I look back all the people I tried to fit in with are a bunch of has been bum Beyotches. I think to myself when I see them randomly “wow I was real dumb”… As Auntie O says “your ah ha moment.”

    i would have to say agreeing to hang out with [crip] guys we met on AIM (through a mutual friend) at my best friend’s house. they were so rowdy!

  • I took a ride to work with a complete stranger because it was raining and the bus was late. I was so close to becoming a statistic.

  • gina

    LOVE this article, LOL!!! Pubic hair perm…wow!!

  • heyheynow

    ha I can relate to a bunch of the comments above but the permed pubic hair has to be the funniest I can’t relate to that…and it should be stupid things you’ve done in college cause I did some pretty stupid stuff even when I was a 21 yr old senior smh oh well we live we learn and now we have stories that didn’t kill us!

  • chanela

    crazy!! i was just gonna say that the stupidest thing i did as a teenager was not go out, make new friends, go to parties,go to football games, play any sports or join anything, and not tell guys i liked that i liked then : (

  • kb

    we use to sneak out and club, then let random dudes drive us home. we thought cuz it was 2 of us they wouldn’t try anything. we were soo lucky they didn’t.

    • me and my friends use to ride with boys we barely knew all the time. we were so stupid

    • kierah

      Did this a bunch of times with my friends!! Shoot, the Boston T closed way to early for the clubs and a college girl can’t afford a cab all the time. In fact, we’d make a game of it to see who get the ride home first 😉
      Filed under stories not to tell my children.

      • sabrina

        girl, i went to visit my homegirl in Boston in September and we ended up catching a ride with random guys all over again, smh lol
