You're now sixteen...didn't think that life could get much better than being a teen, did ya? Well, let me tell ya, you'll have some ups & downs in life but try to keep your head up. Try to be positive & always find the silver lining cuz there always is one.
When you hit your twenties, enjoy it to the fullest...well, maybe not the fullest, still be smart but just try to have a good time because in your thirties, you'll have an encounter with Trouble. I won't get into too much detail but be prepared, you'll be thrown for a loop. But when Greg (yes, you'll meet a fella named Greg who will be like your big brother) & all the other folks call about wanting to hook you up with your "future husband", do it! The sooner you meet him, the better.
Other than that, just continue down the path you're on. Be respect, work hard & be positive. Those three things will get you far in life.
