Is anyone else so glad that it’s Friday? I know I’m stoked about it! And today we have another installment of our personal history in depth questions.
All of the questions have side questions, to help you think or jog your memory of some responses you might have. Just answer these as simply or elaborately as you have time for!
Today’s theme is work. I know, not as fun as play, but it’s something we all have to do!
1. How did you learn how to work?
(What chores/jobs around the house did your parents have you do? How did they teach you how to work?)
2. What was your first paid job?
(What did you like or dislike about it? Describe your duties, and pay if you remember.)
3. List all the places you have worked.
(Record the dates if you remember them (even just the years), salary and duties that you remember. Add in any co-workers and bosses that you remember.)
4. What tips/tricks/shortcuts did you learn at any of your jobs that you still use?
(For example when I was a hotel maid I learned some tricks for cleaning and making beds that I still use.)
5. Which job was your favorite job and why?
Alrighty, there are today’s questions! I hope there are some of you out there who are using these questions and getting their personal history recorded in depth!
And just a little story to add to today…I was talking with a friend who is in her older years the other day. She and her husband are working on recording their personal histories right now, and she said two things about it. #1 that they are having so much fun reminiscing about their lives, and #2 that she wished she’d done some of it a little earlier in her life so she could remember the details better. So, even if you’re young, you can still record things from your childhood—in fact doing it now is better than later when you have 60 years in between to fog up your memory! I really do hope that no matter your age or time constraints, you make a little bit of time to get your life recorded, even just a little bit!
