Jill Davies is an accountant. She's 42, she's married, she
has two children, and she lives in a small village in the
north of England. But 25 years ago she was an 18-year-old
teenager. It was the 1980s and she lived in Manchester.
'I hated being a teenager,' says
Jill. 'Now, I look back, and I think, 'Wow, what a fantastic
time!' but then it was terrible. I didn't like my hair or
my clothes. I thought my dad was great, but I didn't like
my mum. She told me what to do all the time but I never
listened! I wanted to be cool, but I wasn't. I didn't have
a boyfriend and my clothes were terrible. I wore short skirts
and tight jeans and a lot of make-up. I listened to New
Romantic pop music - Duran Duran and Boy George were my
favourites - and at the weekend I went out to discos and
didn't come home until two or three in the morning.'
'Today, everybody goes to university
when they leave school, but when I was young, this wasn't
true. My friends and I left school at 18, and there weren't
any jobs. I worked in a shop for three years. I was 22 when
I went to college and trained to be an accountant.'
Emily Johnson is a student, and she's going to be 18 next
week. She lives in Stockport, a town near Manchester, with
some friends. Her parents and her younger brother live in
a house nearby.
'I like being a teenager,' says Emily.
'I have good friends and a really nice boyfriend. I don't
go out very often, but I text my friends all the time or
we chat online. On weekdays, I meet my friends in a cafe
near college, or I watch DVDs at my boyfriend's house. Sometimes
we go to the cinema on Saturday night. I usually wear comfortable
clothes - T-shirts and jeans. And I download a lot of music
from the Internet. I love listening to Kate Nash and Lily
Allen. They're really cool.'
'I study French at school, but I'm
going to do Spanish at university next year. I love languages
and I want to work in different countries.'
