30 Things

I’ve been following Frieda’s blog for quite a while now, and today she posted a list of 30 things.  She will be responding to one item on the list every day, and challenged her friends to do the same.  Since lately, I’ve wandered from blogging very much, I thought this might be a fun way to get in some writing each day… for 30 days  Why don’t you do the same?

THE LIST:
1. List 20 random facts about yourself.
2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.

19. If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?
20. Describe 3 significant memories from your childhood.
21. If you could have one superpower, what would it be and what would you do with it first?
22. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?
23. List your top 5 hobbies and why you love them.
24. Describe your family dynamic of your childhood vs. your family dynamic now.

Would you like to participate?  Just copy the list and put it on your blog.  Then each day, do an item from the list.  I’m going down the list in order, but you are free to do it however you’d like.  For me, it’s a way to write more. If you’re going to participate, won’t you leave your blog address in the comment area below so we can follow along with you?
