Sixteen store bought birthday cakes.

Fifteen words to that couldn't be more wrong.

Fourteen years of three hour study breaks.

Thirteen friends singing mainstream radio songs.

Twelve for the midnight I first snuck out.

Eleven trophies that collect slates of dust.

Ten reasons why I should really study for that chemistry test.

Nine is my baby sister.

Eight for the clique I joined in junior high.

Seven chocolates more than I said I'd have.

Six lies I have told my parents (add 32 more)

Five beautiful trees in my neighborhood.

Four universities I need to get into.

Three songs I can sing flawlessly.

Two eyes to learn my lessons, all of them.

One person who takes the first step.

Me.
