What It's Like To Be A Teen, As Told By 'The Carrie Diaries'

Falling in love (and breaking up) for the first time can be pretty dramatic in high school... to say the least. But here's a tip: when you feel lost and confused, just ask yourself, "what would teenage Carrie Bradshaw do?" Seriously, this girl might be the smartest fictional '80s teenager you've ever seen -- and she definitely has the best hair.

Let's face it, the best part of every school day is spotting your crush in the halls


You can’t help but feel excited


Hearing his voice makes you smile


And so does hearing those three magic words


Especially when the feeling is mutual


His smile makes you swoon


Even if other people in your life are jealous


You love every little thing about your crush


Because you’ve never felt this way before


But sometimes, love doesn’t always work out how you want it to


And there's little you can do to fix it


Sometimes, love just ends


And it sucks


After endless hallway run-ins


And lots of soul searching


And over-thinking


You’ll wipe away the tears


And open your eyes to the realization


That it’s all a part of growing up


Even though being in love feels great


Nothing is more important than loving yourself first


And being comfortable with who you are


Is what makes life really great
