I Just Turned 16

I don't feel a bit of different than I did when I was 15 last Tuesday.  It's just another number, another year.  I thought maybe I'd get more priveleges, but I don't see where I'm going to.  It's odd being 16 though.  In two years I'll be out of the house, away at college.  I can't believe it honestly.

In germany now you can buy alcoholics legally. Yay for germany :

I didnt feel different when I turned 16 - though it meant I could do stuff legally, it was stuff I had no interest in doing, I just woke up on my birthday and wanted to feel excited about being older, like I did when i was younger, but I didnt...I was barely interested in opening presents...I want to be little again!<br />
Can I just say, the people on shows like 'My Super Sweet 16' are all so lucky!!! I dont know any kids my age whod get all that for their birthday!!! They must just be like, really privileged...dont feel too bad, I dont think many people would get all that! :)

Prettyface, I'll agree with you. Those shows really glamorize turning 16.

I know how you feel. When I turned 16, everyone asked me what it felt like and I said I felt the same. People on shows like "my super sweet sixteen" make it seem like a huge point in your life, but I don't really think it is.
