Tell us all about the person you were when you were sixteen. If you haven’t yet hit sixteen, tell us about the person you want to be at sixteen.
Wow! a blast from the past. Doesn’t seem that long ago when I was 16, but when you count the years, its been a long time. When I was 16, I was a freshman in high school. I was the quite, smart, calm sixteen year old teenager. I wasn’t one of those popular students that people wanted to hang out, but people did know who I was. Most people didn’t call me by my first name, but by the nickname one of the coaches gave me, bigmike. The name stuck with me throughout my 4 years in high school.
The person that I was when I was sixteen and the person I am today somewhat similar, but that person has grown and branch out. When I was sixteen I didn’t like dressing up. I usually prefer jeans, a shirt, and tennis shoes,but today I comfortable dressing up and I like to dress to impress. Since I wasn’t into dressing up I really didn’t go to any high school dance. Why? I didn’t know how to dance nor was I interested in the free style dancing that teenagers did. Beside I really didn’t have any interest in the music most kids listened to. Today I don’t mind dancing if they play civilize music that you can dance to and not afraid or shy asking a girl to dance. Couldn’t do that when I was sixteen.
