When I was 16…

by Maryann Pisano on June 10, 2014

Since I’ve entered my mid-20’s there has been a vast majority of engagements and weddings.  Crazy! But, at the end of the day, I still feel like the 16-year girl I was 10 years ago.  Where has the time gone?


When I was 16:

  • It was the year 2004
  • I was a sophomore East Leyden High School

I liked:

  • Britney Spears’ In the Zone CD
  • DreX in the morning on 103.5 Kiss FM
  • Justin Timberlake… duh!
  • My boyfriend Kyle
  • The song “True” by Ryan Cabrera
  • Abercrombie jean skirts
  • daydreaming
  • Bebe tops
  • The “preppy” look
  • Ryan Cabrera
  • peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
  • Parties on the weekends
  • Socializing at school
  • Football Games
  • Reality shows such as The Simple Life and Laguna Beach
  • Corvettes
  • My journalism teacher Mr. Rossi
  • Newspaper Class
  • Tiffany Bracelets
  • Tiny Louis Vuitton and Coach purses
  • Jesse McCartney
  • pink… everything!
  • Disney World
  • Driving around in Sam’s car
  • Boys that played football
  • Mean Girls


My Dislikes:

  • P.E.
  • Chemistry
  • Geometry
  • The ACT

I Wanted to Be:

  • A Writer… of course.


Advice I Would Give Myself 10 Years Later:

  • Stay away from drama and people who cause drama
  • Those who gossip about others are probably gossiping about you
  • Do better in school!
  • In the grand scheme of things, who you hung out with, wore, talked to, popularity status, and parties you attended REALLY don’t matter
  • School shouldn’t be for socializing
  • Don’t Burn Bridges
  • Keep in touch with friends
  • Take Driver’s Ed more seriously
  • REALLY REALLY enjoy these moments.  You don’t have to worry about getting married, getting your career together, or your future life.  Just have FUN!
