And lastly this little quiz I took just for the occasion.

Your Birthdate: February 7
You are an island. You don’t need anyone else to make you happy.
And though you see yourself as a loner, people are drawn to you.
Deep and sensitive, you tend to impress others with your insights.
You also tend to be psychic – so listen to that inner voice!

Your strength: Your self sufficiency

Your weakness: You despise authority

Your power color: Maroon

Your power symbol: Hammer

Your power month: July

What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

Not exactly scientific.  In my opinion this quiz is just a bunch of hogwash and the exact opposite of who I percieve myself to be, but I posted it just for fun all the same.

    Did your test. I think it describes me pretty well. Although I don't know about March being my power month. What is a power month anyway.

    Your Birthdate: September 30

    You have the type of personality that people either love or hate.

    You're opinionated, dramatic, intense, and very outspoken.

    And some people can't get enough of you – they're totally addicted.

    Others, well, they wish you were a little more reserved.

    Your strength: Your flair

    Your weakness: If you think it, you say it

    Your power color: Scarlet red

    Your power symbol: Inverted triangle

    Your power month: March

    My favorite saying about age is "childhood is only a state of mind" I tell my mom that all the time when she tells me I'm to young to do something.

    N.E ways what is the meaning of this

    "The length of your education is less important than its breadth, and the length of your life is less important than its depth".- Marilyn vos Savant

    Laughing at the quiz, which I just HAD to take…people keep trying to tell me that I have some hefty "Type A" personality…so absolutely opposite of me! They must have me mixed up with my hubby!

    Blessings,

    Anne-Marie
