What did you accomplish at age 16?

It can be anything that you think is considered an "accomplishment".

I'm asking this because I just turned 16 three days ago. Lol :-)

but yeah this question is all about you.

do you remember having successfully done something at my age? or were you just chillin' ?

feel free to rant about yourself or list more than one accomplishment.

  • I was rising through the ranks of my dojo and became one of the strongest and respected students of my class, went on to go into the advance classes for adults and advanced fighters, and was regularly doing championships.

    I was also getting starting to get into literature, poetry and writing more and studying a wide variety of subjects.

  • OMG happy belated birthday!!! 🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈

    i got my driver's licence [learners]
    i finally got the courage to cut off some toxic people in my life.
    it was then that i realised i wanted to stop caring what people thought of me.

    yeah i guess theyre the main ones. nothing too major, just a few personality adjustments.

  • I was working toward my goals in life, i. e. getting into college. Other than getting a driver's license, I was studying. I can tell you I've accomplished a lot since then, but that's not the question, and I don't want to sound pretentious.

  • Let's see... When I turned 16 I guess I'd still be a sophomore in high school. That'd be about the time I...
    --Joined cross country (I had never done it before either so it was hard but rewarding). I think I got an award for team spirit in it if I recall xD
    --Joined jazz band on drums/ relearned clarinet/ got obsessed with teaching myself drums
    --Was working on getting my license.
    --Won school talent show with friend.
    --I gained some levels in Yahoo Answers (I was big into it at the time 😅)

    Sophomore year in high school was where I actually reached out and opened up slightly. I knew basically no one Freshman year in high school and stayed silent the entire year. People thought I had transferred in sophomore year when I started popping up in various clubs since they had never seen me before lol. If I am shy now, I was extremely shy freshman year.

    And that's about all I got for ranting :D

    • I'm a junior rn since my birthday's a bit late :3 but yeah I just joined a jazz band too as a lead vocalist & sometimes i sub for the bassist

    • Show All
    • That, and the fact that my pass rate for peer pressuring people had always been 0%

    • Ahh now you are going into the guilt trip territory by making me feel bad for you 0% pass rate haha jk xD

  • At 16 I had been on the state championship team in physical fitness two years in a row. It was sponsored by the Marine Corp, doing things like push ups, pull ups, etc. It was the top 6 people from each school who competed at the state competition.

    Hmmm

    Had been to at least 42-45 states plus most of southern Canada.

    Went on a century ride. That's a 100+ miles bicycle ride. It was a timed ride, but not a race.

    I had kissed a girl. That was a nice accomplishment :)

    Had the school record for most take-downs and most escapes in wrestling (for that year, not the all time record)

    Unofficially tied the girl who was state champion in a math competition.

  • I just remember I was studying my ass off for the university entrance exams and school exams, because that's the norm in Indian schools. The pressure to get into a good college and getting good grades increases from 11th class (I am not sure about the American school system equivalent but it's the 2nd last year of high school).
    As for accomplishments at 16... nothing really. xD

  • I began to realize that the world operates on the Social Game however if don't want to play, if you don't want to be encumbered by suffering, then you don't have to. Peace, Serenity, Truth, Virtue, Happiness. These things exist in the pursuit of knowledge and temperance. And once you realize you are no better than anyone else and that no one else is any better than you, you begin to break down the confines of this world and seek something greater.

  • So why's it say you're 17?

    I hardly remember 16. I didn't get my license until I was 18 though. I didn't like driving but eventually I knew I had to learn so I got it at 18. I didn't really do anything at 16. For me the important ages of my teen years were 13, 14, 17, and 18. Yeah that's pretty much your teen years but nothing happened for me at 16 and 19

    I guess my biggest accomplishment was simply surviving the crazy teenage years.

  • Happy belated birthday! 😊😊

    The only thing I could think of right now is that I got my driver's license, and I passed my cello exam. Oh and I travelled alone to Japan last summer if that counts. Also, I finally ticked Asia off my travel list, so its one continent down and a few more to go – hopefully next one is America and Europe..

  • Congratulations!

    Well, I think languages are my only accomplishment.

    I speak Spanish and English lol I'm learning French and I'll finish the third level in 3 months, before turning 17.

    I've read around 40 books (I want o read 100 before turning 18)

    When I was 12 I had a 106 IQ, now it's 108 so I think that's an accomplishment hahaha

    I drove for the first time a manual car at 8. I gotta get my driver license soon.

    I worked in a restaurant one year ago and I think it's an accomplishment to know how to bring money to your pockets.

    I came out. It was a HUGE step for me. It's never easy to admit it even if everyone knows. It was hard to talk about it with my parents.

    I'll get a six pack in 3 months! It is a fucking promise.

    I got drunk for the first time without throwing up XD

    I'm writing a book lol I have 20 pages but it's something XD

    This year I helped lot of my friends to go out of bad times.

    This year I learned so much about myself, I got to know me. Now I study online and I have no classmates so I have time to think about me.

    I've learned so much about music and films. I have lot of free time and I'm exploring new stuff.

    I've learned to accept my sexually and don't me ashamed of it. Now I accept my body and I love myself.

    I bungee jumped. It was my goal and I achieved it the last year.

    I've learned to share. My dad had a baby and she's my step sister, I've learned to share my dad's love for the first time.

    I think that's pretty much all. I'm just an ordinary girl. I wish I could have a longer list but this is it.

    • Oh, I forgot lol I sang for the first time in front of my classmates, it was a talent show and I won.

      I'm a virgin and it has been difficult because all my friends put some pressure on me.

      Now I know who are my "true friends" and who are the fake bitches.

      I'm capable of saying "no" and decide by myself.

  • First, happy belated birthday!
    - When I was 15 I got my horse and it didn't trust me at all, he was kinda traumatised I don't know exactly why but after a year (so when I was 16) our relationship was the best haha, I count that as an accomplishment cuz I got to gain my horse's trust hehe
    - Did a horse trip on very tropical places for a few days, which was awesome and took a lot of dedication to train the horses for that as the weather was very hot and the distances were very long, so it was an accomplishment for me to see that my horse did great after weeks of training with him
    - Did my first dance solo and received a great response from the audience
    - My school grades were better as I was planning to go to university somewhere overseas
    - Started to work as a volunteer with kids that suffered from cancer which felt really good.
