Homework, Hormones, and Neutrogena- The Teenage Thread

I've been thinking about this for the past few weeks, and I've finally decided to make it- a teen thread. Now you might ask "but ASJ there's enough on this forum already, why another non-Beatles thread?". Well fellow Bibler, a large proportion of users on this website are between the ages of 13-20, and then there's a dip in the 20's and then a resurgence in 35 years+ members. 

 

As a person near the end of my 'teenhood' (both a blessing and a curse), I think this thread could be beneficial to the younger users- if they need help with homework, dealing with school, college.....life. 

 

So, to get the discussion rolling:

 

I used to have clear-skin up until I was 15ish and then I started getting spots constantly on my chin. They weren't particularly hormone-related as they never flared up around my period or anything like that, they were just 'there'. For the past few years I've dedicated a grand search into how to treat my oily chin and the best product I've probably found for it is:

Paula's Choice Daily Skin Clearing Treatment, it has azeliac acid which normally you can only get on prescription but it's in this product. If you're outside the US, it's a medium-cost product (about €30 to import), whereas if you're in the US it's a bit cheaper. I now no longer have 'obvious, red spots' that linger for days. Now they're mostly light little marks that go away in about 2 days which is a Godsend, seriously. 

If you've been having problems with acne, I'd recommend giving it a go. 

 

And the question is:

 

What's the best way you've found for getting rid of those dreaded spots?

Water was what got rid of my acne. I started drinking about 75% more water and all hygiene problems like dry, gross mouth in the morning and acne went away.

Good idea, @AppleScruffJunior! I'll try out the acne thing - my skin isn't too bad but it occasionally flairs up.

^Use witch hazel as a toner as well, particularly if you have oily skin. It dries up some of the oil. Use daily and nightly.

Anything with sacylic acid in it works well for me.

I never acted like a normal teenager so when I got acme I just ignored it because I never cared how other people thought about me. Since this is a teenager thread are any of us going to talk about relationships since that's what teens do except for me.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

I use clearasil rapid action pimple cream and it helps keep pimples and acne under check. 

I've got three tests at school today (Indonesian, Maths Methods and Injury Prevention & Control) so I'm stressing out quite a bit. I know I am bound to forget something really obvious!

Another question how much homework do you guys and girls get? 

I found that if I get a lot of the work done in class, I won't have a lot of homework. I probably get only 10-15 minutes of homework a night in Year 9 which is really good.

I'm like you, @Thommo. I get a large percent done in class, and then I get the rest done in my free periods, so I really don't have much homework at all - for a year 10 doing two year 11 subjects, I'm lucky. 

More time to spend here!

What subjects do you do?

 

I just got a request to translate medical documents from French into English, I said to let me have a look at them and if I'm 100% confident in my abilities, I'd do it for them. I have a degree in French but I dunno a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Aye, I did science for Junior Cert (the Irish GCSE equivilant). Some great news for you:

 

I did my mock exams in February and I got a C in science, and I thought to myself "you can do better than this ASJ". So, I worked really hard, did a lot of exam papers, worked my ass off for science. I went into the exams in June, thinking "you can do this ASJ, you've worked hard". I did my paper, thought "eh it was...ok". September results came out I got 

a C

a bloody C

might as well not have put in any of the work that I did between February and June

you wouldn't mind but I got As in all the ones that I didn't study for- English, Irish, French, German and history- *grumbles*

I've survived my tests and I did pretty well. I reckon I got B's across the board. Now I've got a three minute Indonesian oral to look forward to. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Don't worry. I did mine this year and they came out fine. Not sure how high you're aiming but if I were you I'd start revising if you don't get homework from january and revising properly from late febuary/march. Buy the CGP guides for your sciences, and make sure all your notes are really organised.

The thing with GCSEs is they're not testing skill they're testing memory, so it's possible to get top grades in most subjects without being particularly good at them, and just being really, really organised. Make sure you know exactly which parts of the course are being tested in each exam, and definitely ask your teachers about exam technique as this is crucial for subjects like english and history.

As for me, currently doing my first year of A levels and struggling with typical teen problems of girls, partying, mental health etc. I spend the vast majority of my time up in my room listening to music but over the last couple years I've started to manage my anxiety better and get out there more, and getting a job has done me so much good in that aspect, so if anyone else struggles with anxiety or anything related I recommend getting a job, it'll really boost your confidence if you like it.

That's a great tip, I've experienced something similar if it wasn't for all the rehearsals and school appointments which force me to go out and interact with people I would probably never leave the world of my imaginations and be even shier than I am anyway. It's cool to hear how well it worked for you!

I'm currently in my last year at school which means A Levels are ahead!a-hard-days-night-ringo-14 My greatest fear is the oral English exam. I've messed up every single oral exam in my whole life so far. For example, one time in Spanish I was so nervous that I broke into a laughing fit in the middle of the exam and the teacher had to send me out of the room to calm down. Another time, in English, I accidentally insulted my dialogue partner and the teachers weren't amused of the 'inappropriate' vocabulary.a-hard-days-night-paul-3 Really hope it will be better this time.

By the way, if anyone of you has to take an exam in German and has a question, feel free to ask me, I'd be more than happy to help.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's
