    As mentioned in the title I don't know much about anything that a normal teenager should. It makes me feel so left out and trapped because I can't maintain conversations with people. I basically don't know what to talk to them about, I don't seem to share the same interest with people and I feel like I always have awkward silences with them. As a result, I always have this constant fear at the back of my mind that I'm boring them and I'm constantly really scared of having awkward silences with people. The problem is a lot of people don't see that and they think I'm just a really happy person because I hide it.

    I don't truly know what I actually like and I just feel like I'm too geeky to fit in but I'm not even truly geeky to reach ultimate geekiness. Sometimes I want to start reading/ watching about more stuff, as simply as finding a popular vine and watch it so I can actually have a conversation with someone! But I don't even know where to begin so I procrastinate...

    So please can someone just advise me on how/ where to actually find out about what teenagers know. A few links or something would be wonderful

    Thank you
