Life could be so different.

I frequently lie on my bed and think about things that could be different in my life or how I'd like my life to be.

I think about how my life would be if I live in America.
Let us expect that I'd live in Santa Monica, California.
I'm not rich and I'm not poor, I'm just "normal".
The sun shines the whole year, I often go to the beach with my friends, I attend a high school and my friends and I go to many concerts at the weekend.
Many teenager I know are naughty, but in a funny way. My friends and I, we're just 16 years old, but we abscond at night, because we wanna go to a party which was usually planned for the 18-year-old teenager. Nobody cares about the age at the party, because everybody's going. They play pop punk/punk rock music, Blink-182, Green Day, Sex Pistols, Ramones, All Time Low, Simple Plan, Fall Out Boy, Good Charlotte and so on.
It's trendy to have piercings and tattoos. I have a tattoo. My tattoo is stashed, on the left hip bone. There will always be written "sixteen" on my skin. My friends also have tattoos. Everybody will maybe regret it when they're old, because they did it to anger their parents.
Everybody's dating, you get to know so many people and it's lot of fun.
The boys I know wear clothes like the members of Blink-182.
Summerholiday will begin in one week and many parties are planned, everybody will go to the beach, travel to some cities like San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose, Los Angeles...
Of course we'll make the trip with a car, because you can get your driving license with 16.

I guess I dream and think about this so many times, because everything's so different at the place I live.
I don't have many possibilities at my "city", which has a population of 12,250.
I'd prefer to live in a city like Frankfurt, Stuttgart or Cologne.
That's a reason why I can't wait to turn 18. I wanna travel and see the world, my biggest dream is America.
Still two years I have to wait.
Why did I choose America? I love the English language (and especially the American accent), the mentality, the humor and I mean, America is the country of boundless possibilities, isn't it?
- I have to add that I don't regret to be an European or to live in Europe.
I'm just dreaming and dreaming is never wrong, right? -


  1. Questo è divertente, perché non ho mai pensato di persone gradimento l'accento americano.
    Io sono di decente italiano, ma sono nato negli Stati Uniti.
    In realtà, però, adolescenti americani in realtà non vivono queste vite che hai descritto qui. Voglio dire, qualcuno potrebbe. Ma questo è più dei film via ritraggono adolescenti americani.
    Grazie per il successivo.
    Ci dispiace perché il mio italiano è orribile.

  2. Sorry, I shouldn't assume you know Italian.

  3. Ciao,
    sì, parlo e capisco l'italiano.

    Well, I actually know that life in America isn't like that (I have relatives in Chicago, my granny told me that my cousin lived under stairs at the beginning).
    And I know that they totally exaggerate in movies. But...I'm just dreaming. When I was six years old I said: "I will never talk German again. I will just speak English."
    I will never forget that :) America was always my dream. But just for holidays. I'd like to live in Italy (Rome) when I'm an adult.
    But who knows what will happen in the future?

  4. California IS pretty cool :P My brother lived there, and I visited him a few times (P.S. I would recommend visiting Monterey. It's right next to the beach, and there is much less crime)
