Depressing or Uplifting

Things people have accomplished by your age. My results:

At age 34:

Francis Scott Key, after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry, publishes "The Star Spangled Banner."

Judith Guest began writing her first novel, Ordinary People.

After defeating Antony and Cleopatra's forces in a naval battle, Augustus became the master of the Roman world.

Matthias Jakob Schleiden, a German botanist, formulated the cell theory of physiology.

Paul Belleci saw in concert the same week Reba McIntyre, Rancid, and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra

I'm not one for measuring myself against others, but this online project I like because you can submit your own accomplishments. I love the last one in the list above.
