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.
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
