16!!! @ 12:02 am

Right now I am annoyingly: happy happy but still tired somehow
Soundtrack: Enya - White is in the Winter Night backwards

Aw gnat! I was going to post something like "I'm now 15.99999984 years old... 15.99999987... 15.9999999... 15.99999994... 15.99999997... 16!!!" but my computer clock displayed midnight before I could start typing. In fact, somehow it's at 12:02 AM already. And now it's 12:03.

But that doesn't change the fact that it's FINALLY MY BIRTHDAY!!! Yay!

Stuff I might could do this year according to them:

Albert Einstein wrote an essay containing the beginnings of the special theory of relativity. In it, Einstein showed that time and motion are relative to the observer.

American sharpshooter Annie ("Annie Get Your Gun") Oakley challenged and defeated the well-known marksman Frank Butler, whom she later married. She could hit a dime in mid-air from 90 feet.

Legendary womanizer and adventurer Casanova was expelled from a seminary for moral misconduct.

Cuban revolutionary Jose Marti had his first arrest and exile.

George McFarland ("Spanky" in the Our Gang series) retired from the movies and spent the rest of his life doing sales and charity work.

Cornelius Vanderbilt began a ferry service between New York City and Staten Island.

Tennis player Tracy Austin became the youngest person to win the U.S. Open.

Guitar player and songwriter Maybelle Carter invented the 'Carter lick,' which used the thumb to play melody and changed the role of the guitar in country music to that of a lead instrument.

American poet and journalist William Cullen Bryant wrote the first draft of his most famous poem, Thanatopsis.

American film director Howard Hawks became a professional car and airplane racer.

Patrick Taylor left home in Beaumont, Texas with only a suitcase full of clothes, 35 cents and the desire to attend college. Evenually he earned a petroleum engineering degree and became one of the richest men in Louisiana.

Emilie Redfern managed to offend the entire town of Chatham and be forcibly removed.

Ashlon suffered a horrible breakup after being 'used and abused' for an entire year.

Rhiannon Carr of Wisconsin, to protest St. Patrick's Day celebrations, vowed to celebrate St. Andrew's Day in an obnoxiously Scottish fashion.

By the age of 16, Sarah Ouseley had travelled to Tanzania, climbed halfway up Kilimanjaro, helped build a classroom in a town called Moshi, been on safari and swum in the Mediterranean ocean.

Melissa Virzi gave up a traditional Spring Break in order to help build a battered women's shelter in Tijuana, MX. She also went to Mississippi to help with Hurricane Katrina Relief.
