    Not so sure I remember 16, but I do remember it was the arbitrary age that my parents decided I could officially “date!”

    I was in grade 10 when I was 16. I was the laziest student in my classroom. The night before the announcement regarding pass/fail, I felt soooo scared I didn’t pass. That’s the only time in my life when I felt I could fail. Well, I did finally pass though, so thank God.

    I remember that on my 16th birthday I received my first rose. It was a single rose from a very special aunt and uncle. A gift I still haven’t forgotten!

    Can’t say I recall anything about being 16 other than knowing I rushed out to get my learner’s and license asap.
