16 vs. 6

Today’s Daily Press blogging challenge was “If you had a debate with a 10 years younger yourself, who would win?” And I took this challenge to heart.

Ten years ago I was almost six, especially since in 4 days I will be 16! 4 days baby!!! Anyway, when I was 6, I was pretty feisty. And I was just as stubborn as I am now. If the two of us were to get in a debate, I’m pretty sure I would win. First of all, I was 6, so I probably would have gotten bored within five minutes and just gave up. Second, I am much more knowledgeable now, so I would have a much more convincing argument. Third, I think just about anyone could win a debate with a 6 year old.

Now, also going on the with 6 year old me, I haven’t really changed that much. Sure, I’ve matured a little, learned a bunch more, and have become a young adult. But my personality is the same. I’m still extremely stubborn. I love to just let go of all of my worries and twirl around in circles. When in doubt, I go and cry on my mum’s shoulder, just like when I was 6. I haven’t changed that much at all. And, to be honest, I don’t think any of us really change from when we are really young. We make small changes but keep that same personality that makes us exactly who we are.

But who would win in other activities? If me and my 6-year-old self were to compete in more competitions, I think that would be a different story. Math contest? 16. Jump rope contest? 6. Finger painting? Fair tie. But that only depends on who is judging 🙂

Well, I hope you all enjoyed reading that and are now comparing yourself to when you were 10 years younger. It’s pretty fun. Keep on reading you lovely folks and I’ll see you all when I’m 16!
