Catch Me If You Can (200th Post Giveaway)

Being a teenager is all about choosing something and staying with it. Keeping a teenage advice blog up and running has been quite a journey. It felt like only yesterday where I proudly proclaiming that I'd reached my hundredth blog post. The time has finally arrived and I've made it. 200 posts of nothing but straight teenage reality. All the outrageous analogies, the eccentric rants, the dramatic blow ups, and the wild experiences in between. It's amazing what the power of writing can really do. The blog has blown up recently, with ironically my two most read posts being my college lists, especially because that's where the least of my writing went in to. No big deal, I've learned to give the people what they want, and if I want my readership to continue to grow, I'll keep giving teens what they deserve. Writing that comes straight from the heart, topics that they can relate to, and in a way that they understand, with tons of humor. Thanks for reading, and I hope you continue to enjoy the youthful life. Be prepared, something is big is coming, as in the Youthful Life: Goes College.

It's the moment you've all been waiting for. As a reward for you loving my teenage blog, I've come up with a giveaway. Y'all voted for the past week on what would be included in the prize pack. There are 2 grand prize winners including $25 Visa Gift Cards (to buy whatever, as every teenager should), an assortment of Candy, and a personal post from yours truly.

Here's how you enter: Comment on this post answering these blog post questions of the day - What has been your favorite blog post and why? And what's your life goal and why? Include your first name, and email address. Contest ends Wednesday, August 24, 2011 at 12pm- noon eastern time. Spread the word, get your submissions in there and join me in celebrating the 200th blog post. As always, we're such teenagers.

Catch me if you can means that you're always one step ahead of the game. As a teenager it's up to you to be making moves, working towards your goals, and exploring your dreams. If you don't have something that you're all about, then what's your purpose. One thing we all need to do as teenagers is to dream and dream big. You guys know that all I want to do with my life is help people both as a doctor, and a social worker/foster parent. My goal is to open homes for troubled teens to live, go to school and to change their circumstances. Everyone deserves a chance to make something of themselves, and in these times and always, it's not just a grown ups job, but one for me, to do something about it. I'm not talking raggedy trashy garbage homes that barely have time for the kids, homeless shelters were people scavenge and are turned away regularly, but a permanent home or at least a place to pass through that's a normal house. Luxurious, safe, welcoming, and something teens will be able to let loose, turn their lives around and feel truly loved. Catch me if you can, it's a taunt and a promise - people may be chasing you and trying to trip you up on your way to achieving your goals, but they'll never stop you. If what you're doing is sincere and from the depths of your soul, I wholeheartedly promise you'll make it. Never forget, you can do anything you set your mind to, but only if you actually work at it.
