The New Beginning

Sometimes things come together in strange ways. Of course, it's a new year (happy new year, by the way). So you put up your new Star Wars calendar. Ah, that looks good.

Of course, it's a new semester (happy, er, new semester, by the way). Ah, crap. Life changes completely every 4 months. Just when I adjusted to last semester, too.

Of course, I've got a new baby. Yeah, yeah--my wife did. But I helped. That's an awesome new beginning.

And, of course, I've got a birthday coming up. So that's another new beginning--another trip around the sun. I don't have a problem being with that. But having a baby makes me think about what the world was like when I was born: no one had walked on the moon, the Beatles were still together, and "dude" meant an ill-bred, ignorant, and ostentatious man from the city.

I found an interesting collection of celebrities who share my birth year:

  • Cuba Gooding Jr
  • LL Cool J
  • Edward Burns
  • Molly Ringwald
  • Daniel Craig
  • Kenny Chesney
  • Celine Dion
  • Patricia Arquette
  • Tony Hawk
  • Kylie Minogue
  • Gillian Anderson
  • Rachel Ray
  • Will Smith
  • Hugh Jackman
  • Owen Wilson
  • Jill Hennessy
  • Lucy Liu
That, my friends, is a cool list of folks. I mean, c'mon: it includes James Bond and Wolverine.

These were born on same day, but in a different year:
  • Matt Frewer
  • Michael Stipe.
No one interesting was born on my exact birth day and year--well, except me!

UPDATE: I changed the title of this post to reflect the fact that it's a beginning, not the beginning, if that makes sense.
