Re: Some unfortunate things as a Teenager... READ!
It's rough, several things fell under "my house my rules" growing up that I had to do without. Drums, Motorcycles, Hockey, etc. Making my own choices now, I no longer feel like I need to follow up with a dirt bike or that I'm all that interested in hockey. If it matters you have a lot of time to come back to it. Wife gets nervous when I get excited and start talking about purchases, it's an expensive hobby and there's other "choices" that are cheaper and less invasive. Try to find an outlet, marching band or whatever to keep you involved and if you're getting school credit there's something to be said.
