I’ll be 16, Going on 17

In a few days I’ll no longer be able to identify with 15 by Taylor Swift. It’s a tragic moment in my life but, if I can see past my loss of a song, there’s a lot of exciting things coming down the track for me.

The most obvious is that I get my permit! I’ll be glad to be driving, although I already know that I’ll get frustrated that I can’t actually drive by myself and I’ll want this year to go by quickly. I’m also pretty freaked out by the whole “you have your life and everybody else’s lives in your hands when you drive” thing.

My driving career hasn’t gotten off to a good start, seeing as I’ve already dented my mom’s car and the side of our garage when I was trying to pull the car out one morning…

But thankfully forgiveness abounds and I didn’t get put on car-probation!

Another thing coming up is the ever dreamt of party season, a staple in every teenage girl’s existence that has been meticulously planned since the day we learned that Sweet 16s existed.

Except, that kind of stuff isn’t for every girl. I’ve never felt comfortable with everybody’s eyes on me, and the idea of having a fancy party entirely dedicated to me did NOT appeal to me as a good time. Of course, other girls find that very enjoyable, and to each their own, but if it’s my birthday I’m celebrating then I’m going to to do something that makes me happy. For me, this means grabbing my two closest friends and heading over to a nice hotel for a DIY hotel room spa and GOAT YOGA the next day.

Yes my friends, this means yoga… with goats.

This might be the coolest thing I’ve ever heard of, but I’ll have to check it out and report back next week!

There’s also finals and midterms coming up in school, always a stressful time. And there’s the possibility that I might get to go to Cedarville University for a week or two for one of the their summer academic programs! I know that makes me sound super nerdy but I’d really like to try out the school again and also try my hand at a field of study, maybe biology?

Then again, I still have no idea what I’m doing with my life. For more information on my ambiguous future go check out my previous post here:


Anyways, that just about concludes today’s update on what it’s like to be staring 16 in the face. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and I’m wishing you all a Happy New Year!


Still overcoming,
