Advice I would give to myself at sixteen…
I had heard about sweet sixteen, but when I was that age, I was in hospital.
I did not know this at the time, but there were places I could have attended classes. These were in the local area, near to the hospital.
There were night classes, and I was entitled to a tutor.
I did not know this, and no-one told me.
If I had known, I could have attended classes.
I missed my books, and would have loved to return to study.
I wish I could tell my younger self to make inquiries, and to ask about these classes.
I sat around doing nothing. This was bad for me, and it lead to thinking too much.
It would have helped my confidence to go to class, or have a tutor.
