Only Sixteen

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Only Sixteen.”

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.

For many, sixteen is one of the earliest steps towards adulthood; a time to be cherished and thoroughly enjoyed. But for me being sixteen was probably one of the worst years of my life. A high school junior at the time, I was depressed, more so than at any other point in my life. My experience was a bit of a cliche really. I wasn’t popular, was bullied, fought back most of the time, and spent the majority of my time alone listening to the saddest and/or angriest music I could enjoy. However that year was a significant building block of the person I am today.
