ZOMG I just had a fabbity fab day! :skull3:
I just sang in a concert, SOLO, muahaha, and got a frickin' STANDING ovation. STANDING! I was the only soloist who got a standing ovation. Almost all of the 1,500 people stood up for me. In that moment I felt so wonderful and pretty and good and awesome.
Have you ever felt like that? It's a sickengly fabulous feeling!

Have you ever had any personal achivements? What were they, and whad did you get out of it?

I once sang in-front of a big crowd, I sang "La Vie En Rose" in French and I also got a standing ovation.

Haha, fabbity fab..

I've performed the part of Oliver to a audience of over 300 people before... But that was when I was about 7.

You know who I mean don't you? . . . 'Can I have some more Sir? Please Sir!'

That ring a bell?

In my opinion, there is no greater personal achievement than falling in love. To achieve such a thing may be simple, but it is such a great thing to achieve that there is nothing better - although, come to think of it, you could say that the greatest achievement is to win the love of the person that you love. Which I've also done. Hee. =]

I never had a feeling like that. :( Though, BoB's idea of greater personal achievement is something that does feel pretty good. :)

As for others, the closest thing to a personal achievement was graduating.

I get a feeling of accomplishment everytime I clean my room. It doesn't sounds all that much, but for me to build up the motivation and then stick with it through the end isn't easy. I feel wonderful every time I'm done.

Probably when I won this art contest when I was 7 years old. I haven't done anything spectacular after that.

Kamiko

I've won several drawing contests and I won a contest for inventing a machine. It was a machine that did nothing. The idea was that you turned off all of the lights and sat around and stared at it all day, which conserved energy.
Yayyy go me!!
Oh, and I've done ballet for 10 years but nothing really exciting has happened with that.
And I won an award for my drawing once too.... Well technically it was a 'creativity' award.
And I was 11.

I agree with BoB as well. Falling in love with someone is a great achievement, because love is a special feeling that's not something that happens when you feel like it. & winning the love of someone you really love is even better, 'cause then you're both in love with each other & there's nothing better in the world than being in love with someone who you know loves you back.

I agree with BoB. But other than that, I've never really achieved anything that good. I've had a few awards in Art, Graphics and ICT, but not really much more.

The fact I'm doing so well in my exams, in spite of revising for all the wrong modules. Also, the fact I didn't walk out of school and refuse to do my History exam today. I sat through 105 minutes of sheer brain torture...Mind you, I slept for 30 of them! :p

Graduated High School and jumped off the stage (the jumping part was lame).
I made a horrible film that makes your head spin around the entire time you watch. It was debuted in Brendon Theater.
I wrote a Reflections eulogy for my uncle's memorial service in which I also sang Reason by Hoobastank and that "walking song" by the Dead Presidents (at least, I think that's what they're called.)_
During a visit to Monterey, I asked a spectacular woman named Vanessa for her phone number and she gave it to me. The failure after is that I never had the guts to call.
I've won a poetry contest and got a song copyrighted.
My usernames are the most unique to hit the entire internet. OK, that's lame.

The only real achievement I ever want to make is finally being able to do a backflip.

I can do a backflip guys! Quite easy, all you need to do is be physically fit...and uh after that step you get on a nice cushiony floor (probably at a gym) but if you don't have that, go outside in grass. And first have someone spot you. Then what you want to do is use your arms to jump really high in the ground and when you're at your highest, grab your knees and tilt backwards. You need to tilt the right amount so that you actually land on your feet though. It'd be wise to perhaps work on this AFTER you have a backhandspring and erm trying it on a trampoline.

I have accomplished love to my best friend of 5 years, who's really busy with work right now >.> and so I miss him soooo much. Other than that I'll always be known as "sucking at life." Because I have no talents!

I mean I'm sad because I won't have a computer in front of me anymore but, I'll be making $2 more and hour and be working on machines which, will give me an edge latter on finding a job. Also satring monday I'll be working normal hours again (6am - 2:30 pm instead of 2:30 pm - 11pm)AND I'll have full benafits (health, dental and 401k) :D:D:D:D

I've won a bunch of awards like KB said but they are really not that great to me now. The finest thing I did was find a lovely boy to love and who loves me ^_^

Although Kamiko's ballet thing... gah, I miss ballet! xD (I told Psy I took ballet and he burst out laughing ;_; Whatever, Mr. I USED TO PLAY VIOLIN) I was on national television with a group of Chinese ballet dancers (We did Chinese dances in ballet style? xD) when I was 12 or 13. They were all from 14-25 xD *dies* I felt really special when I went to go use the bathroom, and there were two little kids and they stared at me and went, "*gasp* Look, look! It's one of the dancers!" Rofl. xD

When I was 10, I entered my first ever fencing competition, with some of the best fencers competing from all over the West Midlands. I fought really hard, and came third. I was so proud of myself, because I'd only been fencing a year, and everyone was older than me and had more experience. Oh, and all the other fencing competitions I entered, I always came second. That made me feel pretty sweet. And when I got told I was really strong and determined, after having about 9 people try to flip me on my back, and I made it to the other side of the room with them...:D

Haha sorry, had to do that ^_~ :<3: If only you were ShlupQuack, that would have been better :(

Anyway... I remember a personal achievement now ^_^ I was in the track team freshman year and sophomore year and junior year of high school. And I sucked at it frosh and sophomore year (I was always in the wrong runs, though, because I didn't find what I was supposed to do frosh and sophomore year. I kept being in short distance and I'm not a short distance runner >_>), and the coaches couldn't even remember my name xD But junior year I tried really hard and got better, and I earned myself a varsity letter (even though I only ever subbed in for varsity xD I still sucked compared to those really good people, but I don't care, I improved so much xD!) I went from a 3:18 or so 800 meter run (that's a bit over half a mile!) to a 2:56. It's a big difference in the track world! ^_^ I was so happy when I broke three minutes and that was during my last track meet, cos' I ran like I never ran before, baby :p

No matter where I go, I am praised for what I do, only to have that taken away in a matter of five years. When I moved here, slowly but surely, people were becoming amazed at my talents. Yet in recent year, I have had that taken away. To see the spotlight so bright in my eyes, only to have that taken away into lies. In which I seek again, how have this happened. Although I never was surrounded by such a huge crowd, people are amazed by me. I don't see as being surrounded by thousands of people only to hear them applaud me, I see that as meaningless in my eyes, yet it's the individual who approach you that means something.

Many people have approached me. Should I have kept exploiting my beliefs, I would have had a following of me, a cult after my name. I stopped that after a small group of people, roughly eleven, at least that's how much I found out, were just about in the stage of worship. They were seeing me as a prophet of a new religion. I had to stop that or else something bad would have happened to me.

I have become distant of people, as I don't like to be praised by others, it seems a waste. I don't know what my greatest personal achievement. Just ask the people who stalk me. Perhaps my greatest personal achievement is having charisma that's almost unmatched among my peers. Well, enough of me babbling away, sorry about that, anyways, lets see, recent achievements would have to be during my high school years. My writing was sent to national cometitions, and I was praised by my english teachers about my writing, one of them said that I'm the best student writer that she'd seen in her 26 years of teaching.

I never heard much from those competitions after that, I assume they were published somewhere without my notification. Lately I've been writing up theories and processes that mankind will undergo in the future. So, my greatest achievement has to be my writing, I think...

To achieve such a thing may be simple, but it is such a great thing to achieve that there is nothing better - although, come to think of it, you could say that the greatest achievement is to win the love of the person that you love. Which I've also done. Hee. =]Falling in love was one of my worst mistakes. I'm not proud or happy about it.

I get a certain sense of accomplishment whenever I complete and submit an essay, but that kind of work has more to do with necessity than pride. Besides, there's always the 'waiting period' while its assessed and graded. Getting a good result is more of a relief than a joy.

I don't take a lot of pride in the things I do or achieve, really. Just the little things - making someone laugh with a silly joke, or shooting well during archery. Trivial stuff.
