For me, the dumbest rule is that you can't chew gum in school.
I didn't go to prom - I was homeschooled.

We've all recognized the moment when the world has handed us a situation that is bigger than our youth can handle, and we have to grow up in a second.

We lived in just a studio apartment with just a room and a bed that came out of the wall, and my mom couldn't afford even a Happy Meal. We ate Top Ramen. I had no toys, and I had, like, two shirts, a pair of jeans, and that was it. But I had my mom to myself, and I remember it being the coolest period of time. I loved it. I really loved it.
