Documenting Your Life series: question/prompt 30

January 21, 2015

As a part of my “Birthday Celebration” I want to revisit the part of our story that has to do with birthdays … celebrations … anniversaries …  These are not always happy occasions, and sometimes they even go by unnoticed.   If you haven’t journaled Question/prompt 17 yet, you may wish to do so now.  I will repeat #17 here along with #30.

Question 17

What birthday do you remember most? Why?

Question 30

What was the _______________  gift you ever received for your birthday? Why? Who gave it to you?

* you fill in the adjective about the gift that was meaningful enough to be a memory and a part of your story. Suggestions: best, most important, most surprising, unique, silly, etc.

You can join in at any time. You can start with the current question and move forward from there, catching up later with the questions asked before.

Some participants do only the journal, others do the journal and then create layouts for some of the questions as well. This is your story, you may do it any way you like. Don’t worry about handwriting, spelling and grammar. Putting words to paper is the essential task you have.

If you create layouts (not required) I would love to see them here and/or in the gallery at theStudio  “Everyone Has a Story” Gallery  

This is your project. Your creation. Do it in your own way so it is unique to you. Be sure to enjoy the process.

Leave me a comment. I’d love to hear how your journey is progressing.

Question 29

More of our teenage perspective …

What were some of the “fads” when you were a teenager? What slang expressions were popular during your teen years?

Have fun with this one, I am!

What a “blast” this week’s questions are!  The ‘60s were so cool, really bitchin’ twitchin’ bad.  My friends and I did indeed think we were “cool” with our permed curly afro’s, our bell bottoms and mini skirts, listening to the Beatles. We were copacetic,  fab, far-out even!   We “went steady” by exchanging  class rings,  we went to the movies and watched the California surfin’ culture explode and the Beach Boys sound compete with the “British invasion” bands.

What do you remember best? 

This is your project. Your creation. Do it in your own way so it is unique to you. Be sure to enjoy the process.
