Good-bye Sweet 16, Hello Sweeter 17

PROMPT: Signing Off

Dear 2016,

Today is the last day I get to live in you, and it brings mixed feelings. I remember at the beginning of the year, I didn't know what I was doing with my life. I still don't. If I were to rate (on a scale of 1-10) how this year has been in the context of all the 16 years I've lived in so far, I would say... a 7. Don't be upset that it's not 10. Or...

Relationship to Acquaintances

FREE WRITING

Time changes people. I know this full well.

Because time changes people, time also changes relationships. And even though I know this is a fact, I still want to deny it because memories don't seem to fade as fast as the relationships change.

Introversion

FREE WRITING

I have realised that being around people sucks the life out of me.

Definition of introversion.

Before Christmas break, which was just a couple of days ago, I would have called myself a very social person. I loved hanging out with friends, going to lunches with them, watching movies, or shopping. After all my awkward middle school and Freshmen years of school, I thought I had finally popped the bubble of introversion I had always been locked into. I had...

Hands- Social and Academic Heros

FREE WRITING

Hands are truly a gift from God that we take for granted.

The way that each of the fingers moves completely individual of another is so fascinating. Sometimes I just stop and stare at the way my fingers move on the keyboard, knowing where to go without me even telling it to.

Or when I write. Isn't it so weird that your hands know what your brain wants to say and immediately translates it for you? Your hand fills the...

FREE WRITING

    We are not defined by who we are today. Sometimes it is impossible to see ourselves apart from the recent mistakes we've made, things we've accomplished, or the friends who have decided to stick around. We see ourselves as the product we have made ourselves to be.

    Sometimes, I get locked into those categories. I define myself based on how much love someone shows me, or what grade I got on a test on that particular day. These perceptions of self lock...
