1. Were you a rebellious teenager?
Oh no. I was very afraid of getting into trouble.
I tested the waters once or twice, but never went really mad.

My parents thought I was good, but I wasn't. LOL.
Everything I could possibly rebel against, I rebelled against.
2. Which part of teen magazines did you always read first?
The makeup tutorials. I NEEDED frosted lip gloss and crimped hair.
The Cringe pages. I was bad, but at least I wasn't THAT bad.

The flirting tips! Touch his arm, lean towards him when you're talking to him, etc.
I didn't read them at all.
3. What did you write about in your diary?
I didn't keep one.
Long, detailed analysis of fights with my friends.

Long detailed analysis of the people I fancied.
Long, detailed analysis of fights with my parents.
4. Pick a genre of music you were passionate about as a teen.
PA Wire
Pop music/boybands

5. Did you, at any stage of your teenage life, ever pretend to be drunk?
Yes. Everyone else seemed to be drunk!
No, but that's because I was actually drunk.

No, that's stupid.
6. Did you ever lie about liking a TV show/film/band, in the hope of making someone fancy you?
Not that I can remember.
Just the once. BUT I DID MY RESEARCH.

Yes. And got caught out :(
All the time. I was good at it!
7. Pick a fashion trend you sported as a teen.
Flannel shirts
Octopus pants

Super baggy jeans
8. Did you ever rail against the 'normals' (because y'know, you were so 'alt')?

You were really embarrassing.
You were an occasional door-slammer, there was most definitely a phase of some sort, and you sighed more than was appropriate. But that's OK.
