Today's 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?

Come to think of it I don't think I have a picture of just
le ex and I alone. 
Let's see. When I was 16, I was in Form 4. New life, academically. I chose to enter science stream for my Form 5 finals, SPM. I already was aiming for the Straight A's even then, thus the efforts. Sweet 16? Like many other girls out there, I imagined having a nice boyfriend who would celebrate it with me, and feeling like I've became a girl for real. You know, not the tomboy-thing I was. My head was filled with many surreal expectations in a relationships, due to the romance-genre books I read back then.

And then there's this idiot that got into mai life
when I was 18. =)
I was upset, a little, because I thought I was going to enter arts stream when I was 16, but my parents did not allow that. I thought that I would just give up on my artsy dreams one day and stick to science forever. I also expected like a HUGE change in my life, in some aspects. Friendship, maybe. Or maybe I would change into a completely different person, whoever I already was back then.

Some of what I expected did come true. I DID get a boyfriend, on the 3rd of February 2011. I WAS happy. He DID celebrate my sweet 16 with me through a phone call. Sang me a birthday song. A boyfriend though it was, he was not PERSONALLY there, but that's only because we live a state away from each other. With sweet 16 over with, so was my first relationship. But two years later, when I turned 18, I had someone else who celebrated my birthday with me, along with one whole awesome bunch of friends who gave me a surprise birthday party. I have wrote about that before. 

I DID get straight A's one year later. I DID stick to science stream for one more year afterwards, and although I really should have taken a foundation in arts to make it easier for my degree this year, it was in this  course that I met and knew my idiot. I DID NOT expect life to turn this way, in means of getting to know what friendship is like, and what it would be like to live away from home when I moved into the hostel. Life has been better than what I expected when I was 16 so far, and I can only hope that it will get better and better.

All that happened was good. I learnt, I got hurt, I got up again, I experienced. 

I grew up. =) 

If asked to pinpoint a certain year in my life that I love the most, I must say that it's in 2013, where so many things happened in that one short year. It's a year that I can look back at and smile at, fond of the memories.
