So how did the first assignment go?
Was it harder than you thought?? Easier than you thought?
Did you talk to your family? Did you find anything new and interesting about who you are?
Did you enjoy taking the time to learn about yourself?
Write about your parents. What do you know about them? You probably know when they were born, possibly even where they were born. Is that all you know?? If you are fortunate to still have your parents living talk to them. Ask them all kinds of questions.
Where were you born?
Where did you live as a child?
What were some of your favorite things?
What did you want to be?
The more questions the better. While you are doing the interview record it, either with an audio tape or with a video tape. There are 2 good reasons for this. One, you will have this cherished item now forever. Not just some notes written down on paper, but them giving their answers and opinions. Two, then you don't have to write it all down. You can look back over it. Write down what you feel you need to and see what you missed.
This is an assignment that should make you feel really good when you are done with it.
