~ thoughts ~

– Sixteen! Sixteen! Sixteen! Am I, really? Sixteen-year olds once seemed so wise, seemed so experienced to me… hahahah. No longer. Not. At. All.

I am not wise or experienced or nearly as talented as I hope to someday be.

I still feel quite young. I still am quite young. Quite.

Often, I am mistaken for a a junior high student. While at school… a mere freshman.

I do not feel sixteen.

I am… sixteen(!).

– I have goals for sixteen. Lots. of. Goals.

To improve my food styling/photography.

To become a better baker.

To strengthen my writing abilities.

To excel academically.

To blog weekly.

– Readers: Thank you so, so much for your support. Your sweet comments/follows make my day, each and every day. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
