This week's topic is Your Birth. Please use common sense when posting personal information about yourself on the Internet. You may wish to have a complete posting in a written journal or in a document on your desktop, and only post a filtered version online. For instance, I will be writing more about my birthplace than the birth date itself (a fact that I wish to keep private, not for vanity's sake, but for security from identity theft). Here are your prompts:
*When were you born?
*What day of the week did your birthday fall on? (If you don't know, use this perpetual calendar.)
*Do you think that the old nursery rhyme about being born on a certain day of the week accurately reflects your personality? Why or why not?
*Were you born on a holiday? If so, which one?
*Which famous person do you share your birthday with? What is your opinion of these people?
*What saint day were you born on? If Catholic, do you pray to this saint? Do you feel he or she has helped you in any special way?
*Do you share a birthday with any of your ancestors or relatives? Or is your birthday the same date as an ancestor's or relative's date of marriage or death?
*What is your astrological sign? Do you think your sign fits you? What about your Chinese sign? Do you believe in astrology?
*What major events happened on the day you were born? What happened the year you were born?
*Where were you born?
*Were you born in a hospital, at home, or somewhere else?
*Why were you born where you were? Were your parents living in that town, or somewhere else?
*Who was in attendance at your birth?
*Is there an interesting story related to your birth?
*What do you know about the history of the place where you were born?
*Do you still live in the place where you were born? Why or why not?
See if you have a copy of the earliest photo taken of you, and add it to your journal.
Our topic next week will be Your Family. See you then!
