Daily Prompt: Sweet Sixteen

Daily Prompt: When you were 16, what did you think your life would look like? Does it look like that? Is that a good thing?

When I was sixteen I had left school, and I was glad to have done so. As far as I was concerned, that was a horror that was behind me. I was hanging around with a neighbour and smoking (I had actually started years before, but that’s beside the point). I had a job, and as far as I was concerned, my life was set. I liked what I was doing. It was a small company and I felt I could stay there for a long time. But I had three jobs when I was sixteen. I hadn’t raised my façade at that point, so I was still naive and vulnerable. I did start going out with a girl. My first girlfriend. Wow that was amazing.  However that only lasted a couple of months.

Me

Me – Left; Friend – Right

I looked to the future and saw myself as a successful person with a good family and loads of friends. I saw myself as being invited to parties and living in a huge posh house.

Yeah, like that worked out. LOL

  5. With 16 I was still in school and really cannot remember much else. I did dance lessons, but wasn’t yet into boys…haha I was a late bloomer….:-)So not much excitement in my life there.

  6. Gosh – I was relieved to leave HS too. Long story short – I was never picked on or bullied – I had lots of people that I talked to & talked to me – I just felt like I didn’t belong.
    Anywho – You may not be where you thought you would be – but – you’re still AWESOME!

  7. At sixteen, life is wonderful! No worries, no problems … primary was fun!
    Everything was seen through the eyes of innocent for future! Everything was easy!
    But later … contariul discover …
    Warm wishes, Alastair! :)

  8. I’m really glad I didn’t turn out the way I expected to at 16. What did I know then? There are definitely blessings in the life lessons that come our way, right? RIGHT?

    You can come to my party. Bring the tacos. And the chips.

    • Cool :-D

      I know there are some parts of my life that I regret and detest, but I wouldn’t change it as it is what me who I am. I’ll be round in an hour :-)
