    3. What was the most important thing you owned?

    4. What was your favorite thing to do for fun?

    Well, being 16 for me doesn't seem like THAT long ago, though then I realize that it kinda was... (I'll be 22 this year). I didn't really look that much different. My 5 year old brother had just died from drowning so turning 16 was kinda ruined for me - probably worst year of my life. :( -end depressive story-

    1. What was your favorite band at 16? Backstreet Boys

    2. Did you have a boyfriend or girlfriend? Nope.

    3. What was the most important thing you owned? Not sure really... I didn't get my license until I was 17, and even so, I didn't own my car. Hmm... probably my laptop. Ha. Nerd alert.

    4. What was your favorite thing to do for fun? Going to concerts. We pretty much followed the Backstreet Boys around, it was awesome, LOL.

    5. Did you care more about appearance? No, not more than I do now.

    6. Would you go back to being sixteen if you had the chance? God no.

    Me and my bro shortly before he passed:

    1. What was your favorite band at 16?
    BLINK 182!!!

    2. Did you have a boyfriend or girlfriend? I wasn't allowed to date until I was 16. As soon as I turned 16 (literally, 2 weeks later), I started dating the guy I dated for 4 years, lol.

    3. What was the most important thing you owned? My drivers license

    4. What was your favorite thing to do for fun? Play soccer, go to the beach

    5. Did you care more about appearance? Yeah. But I was a late bloomer. My parents never let me wear makeup/shave my legs/wear trendy clothes/etc in junior high, so I was figuring it all out in high school. It was kind of an awkward time.

    6. Would you go back to being sixteen if you had the chance? No way in heck. Sooooooo much drama!

    1. What was your favorite band at 16? Honestly, I dont even know. I was in to alot of music back then. Alot of rap and hip hop. prob Ja rule or sean paul lol

    2. Did you have a boyfriend or girlfriend? yes. which is so funny, because he just facebooked me a few weeks ago.

    3. What was the most important thing you owned? Prob my cell phone. lol. I was ALWAYS on my phone or texting if I wasnt with my friends haha

    4. What was your favorite thing to do for fun? Hang out with friends. I was always with a LARGE grop of people, there was like 20 of us that hung out every day and night.

    5. Did you care more about appearance? yes. Much more then now. I did my hair and make up daily, I worried about what i wore. Now a days (11 years later) I dont care as much. I try to look nice, But if I dont do my make up and hair that day, Ill still go out lol

    6. Would you go back to being sixteen if you had the chance? Yes, honestly. there was no care in the world. We had so much fun, did so much, never worried about work, bills, savings, houses ect. we lived for the moment. I have 1000's of photos to remind myself, and to many memories to count. So Im good. Im glad Im at the age I am now. but it would be fun to go back once in a while.

    16 wasn't really that long ago for me, like 6 months :p

    1. What was your favorite band at 16? I didn't and don't have favorite bands. I like random songs, but I rarely like multiple songs from the same group. I'd probably say my favorite artist was Taylor Swift, or Usher.

    2. Did you have a boyfriend or girlfriend? Nope, still don't, and I probably won't for quite some time

    3. What was the most important thing you owned? I don't really own her, but most likely Suzie. She's the most important thing in my life.

    4. What was your favorite thing to do for fun? Play frisbee with the 'big' kids.

    5. Did you care more about appearance? No, I've started caring more how I look now then I did 6 months ago.

    6. Would you go back to being sixteen if you had the chance? No, I'm ready to be out of high school and start to do the things I want to do, so no sense in going back in time.

    1. What was your favorite band at 16? My chemical romance

    LOL the only pictures I have online of me at that age were shared on facebook by some dear friends who felt the need to post the WORST photos of me hahaha.

    LOL these are so embarassing. anyway my friends and I went through a "modelling" phase lol we would pose and take photos of each other and as you can see in the background we had a slight obsession with Jean Claude van Damme

    1. What was your favorite band at 16?

    Backstreet boys lol. Saw them in concert twice.

    2. Did you have a boyfriend or girlfriend?

    I don't remember for sure if I had one or not at 16. they were all pretty insignificant "relationships" that I had in highschool that only lasted a couple weeks or a couple months.

    3. What was the most important thing you owned?

    My CD collection. I was big into music. I ALWAYS had my discman with me where ever I went. Walking between classes... had my ear buds in. On the bus... had my ear buds in. no matter what I was doing between classes or before or after class... had my ear buds in. It's a miracle I can hear today lol.

    4. What was your favorite thing to do for fun?

    We mostly hung out at the mall because it was free lol

    5. Did you care more about appearance?

    I did but I failed miserably at it. I have no fashion sense and no sense of doing makeup or my hair or anything else so usually when I would put effort into those things it was a big FAIL haha.

    6. Would you go back to being sixteen if you had the chance?

    NO WAY. too much highschool drama stuff. I was the typical dramatic 16 year old girl and I really don't want to relive that nonsense. Too complicated lol. my 30's have been the best of my life so far and I hope it just keeps getting better and better. Even as a kid though I couldn't wait to be in my 30's and do adult things. I always loved hanging around the adults at family gatherings or parties my parents would have. I just loved listening to adults talk and interact. Even now I enjoy getting older and doing the fun things adults get to do lol.

    Woohoo, another BSB'er. LOL. I'm pretty sure between 1998-2008, I counted going to about 30 shows, possibly more :yikes: Ridiculous right? But we had a freaking blast.

    1. What was your favorite band at 16? Don't remember, lol. Something heavy metal, no doubt.

    2. Did you have a boyfriend or girlfriend? Yes, but don't ask me to remember his name. I think I went through several, actually. EDIT: No, wait . . . when I went to the JuCo (Herbie High aka Walters State CC) that fall -- there was a guy, I think his name was David. He was 29, 6'4" and drove an MGB.

    3. What was the most important thing you owned? Purdue, the GSD Nanny gave me.

    4. What was your favorite thing to do for fun? Walking with Purdue. We moved here a few weeks after I turned 16, several miles from town, I wasn't allowed to learn to drive so I was basically my mother's prisoner all summer until I started at the local junior college that fall.

    5. Did you care more about appearance? Obviously, lol. :rofl1: Look at the curls, although I don't think it was a case of "cared more" as much as it was a case of made it a lot more difficult than it needed to be.

    6. Would you go back to being sixteen if you had the chance? OH HELL NO!

    This is exactly how I felt! I have always wanted to be an adult, and I am SO happy that I'm closer to 30 than 18 now. I love being an adult and doing adult things- I would never want to go backwards!

    Lol, same. I didn't talk about them at all in high school, I just didn't wanna deal with it, but I always was a huge fan. I used to chat on all the bsb message boards and stuff. The year I graduated was when we decided to "tour" with them, and I was 18 and done with HS, so then I just started not caring anymore. But the past few years I've completely forgotten about them, it's kinda sad, haha, as we had such good times. I still hang out with the close friends we made on tour tho. haha. once in a lifetime experience for sure. Actually I'm going to Hershey Park to see them this year in August and it'll be a first in a LONG time. Not going to lie, I'm kinda excited... if they even remember me anymore haha.

    1. What was your favorite band at 16? - Motley Crue

    2. Did you have a boyfriend or girlfriend? - Nothing steady. Played the field

    3. What was the most important thing you owned? - Probably my 1979 Celica. To a 16 year old, a license and a car trumps most things.

    4. What was your favorite thing to do for fun? - Run.

    5. Did you care more about appearance? - Not really

    6. Would you go back to being sixteen if you had the chance? - Hmmmm, I wouldn't "be" 16 again, I was an idiot :D I'd like to have that body again, though. Sure I was skinny, but you can put on muscle. I was pretty fit and didn't have near the health issues I have now.
