Born today, you are something of a character, the kind of individual who attracts attention not for what you accomplish so much as for who you are and how you behave. Indeed, the question of accomplishment may actually haunt you, for although you may feel that you do contribute a great deal, there are some who would assert that you are merely drifting blithely through life, doing what you please without a care in the world. There is, in fact, something to this perception, for you're not one to do what is expected of you or pursue goals that have been set for you by others. Rather, you do what you want, and in that way, you are far more likely than most to enjoy lasting contentment and satisfaction.
You may go through periods marked by a lack of drive and an unwillingness to step out of your comfort zone. When this happens, you're likely to disappear for a while, preferring your own company and insisting on maintaining a very private lifestyle. When the time comes, however, you're sure to burst forth, ready to take the world by storm once again.
Also born on this date are: Weird Al Yankovic, singer and satirist; Pele, soccer player; Michael Crichton, writer; Johnny Carson, television host; Ang Lee, filmmaker; Dwight Yoakam, singer and actor; Ryan Reynolds, actor.
