The daily transcript of an “Uncultured” teen

People my age LOVE to make fun of the fact that I didn’t watch TV growing up, or that I didn’t have cable until last year.

THEM: *singing some disney channel song*

ME: *smiles*

THEM: why aren’t you singing along? Come on!


THEM: omg dont tell me you’ve never seen That’s So Raven!

Me: I haven’t, no

THEM: What???? You’ve never seen That’s so Raven???

ME: nope

THEM: what about Kim Possible? Good luck Charlie? Austin and Ally???

ME: not one

THEM: WHAT???? THAT’S LIKE MY CHILDHOOD (they particularly like to call a show or movie their ‘childhood’)

ME: I didn’t grow up watching TV, I just got cable last year haha

that’s it. i have that conversation more often than i’d like

I write here when I delete all my social media and pretend I don’t exist. I’m a teenager who used to live on a beautiful farm by a creek tucked into the sweet aroma of Concord grapes. Now I live in a 15 story apartment complex above a dog park in Philadelphia.
