Happy Chinese New Year! It’s officially the Year of the Dog. Unless my planner is wrong. Woof Woof!
I remember listening to a podcast about the Chinese Zodiac while driving last year. The hosts mentioned fire pig and I was like That’s what I want to be.
I looked it up when I got home. I’m a horse. According to this site (which I hope isn’t made up) my strengths are a nice personality, a lot of friends, independence and endurance. I do have a nice personality. I definitely don’t have a lot of friends, although most people seem to enjoy my company (even though I’d like nothing more for them to get hugged by a fire pig). Independence and endurance? Meh…I run endurance races. My weaknesses are a love of spending money and a lack of persistence. I don’t love spending money, but I’m not good with money. Lack of persistence is true, especially if I’m not all in on something.
In a freaky twist, my blood type apparently affects how great of a horse I am. Having Type A blood, I’m industrious and persistent, which directly contradicts what I said above. I also have a quick temper.
Particularly, I’m a metal horse. “Frank by nature with a ready tongue, sparing no effort to help friends.” I’ll take it. Looks cool I guess.
Check yours out. Hopefully you’re something badass like a fire pig, earth rabbit or water monkey.
