Golden Birthday

Having gone to independent schools, charter schools, and other liberal hippie alternative schools (as well as the standard public schools), I have acquired odd facts and traditions from all over the world. I don't even know where some of them came from, or why I still remember them, but I do.

For instance, I always try to say "White Rabbit" on the first day of every month, which apparently means you will have good luck for the whole month after. This was instilled in me during my days at Hiland Hall School, a tiny alternative school, where I learned to sew my own clothes and read Shakespeare at a young age. I remember as a child, my sister would have notes posted all around her bedroom, saying "white rabbit" or "don't forget white rabbit" in hopes she would remember to say it when she woke up.

Besides conducting studies in astrology, numerology and tarot cards in my early teens, I also came across the notion of the Golden Birthday. What does it mean? Does it mean good luck? Does it mean something special happens the year you turn your "golden" age? Well, this year is my golden birthday. I turn 26 on February 26, 2008.

I'm hoping this is a good omen, if you believe in that sort of thing.

Okay, I'm just as bad...I promised myself this would be a good year because my birthday is 08/08/08. I hope it spells good luck for both of us. Love you!

I sincerely hope that this is your “golden year.” I turned 23 on the 23rd the first year I was out of college, the year I met (and became engaged to) N, the year I found the perfect (even if I am sick of it now) masters program, the year I got the perfect (even if I hate it now) job…yeah that was a pretty damn decent year.

You lucky bastards and your coincedencial number sequences. :P I passed the 13th years ago. I guess I could look forward to 08/13/08 this year and should appreciate that I'm born on Friday the 13th. Good luck this year, JL and Hanna!
