I wasn’t able to greet every one last year because I was looking for a job, but this time I’ll greet everyone ????!
Here’s my little gift!
This year, it’s the year of the Earth Ox. Ox is a star under Xuan Wu (tortoise). If you’re familiar with the manga/anime Fushigi Yuugi, then the word “Genbu” might’ve sounded familiar, ne? And the one who was born under the star of Ox was Inami. I love it when manga/anime are actually based on actual mythology. I brought it up so it would stimulate your curiosity and you also might’ve read the manga too. X3
Anyway, here’s something about Oxen that I’ve copy and pasted from here:
Those born under the influence of the Ox are fortunate to be stable and persevering. The typical Ox is a tolerant person with strong character. Not many people could equal the resolution and fearlessness the Ox exhibits when deciding to accomplish a task or an objective. As we used this great creature long ago to plow the soil day after day, so do Ox people labor through their daily responsibilities either at work or at home without complaint or gripe. Oxen know they will succeed through hard work and sustained effort and find no truth or benefit in concocting get-rich-quick schemes.
I’m actually born under this animal. And my element is wood. According to that site, I’m a pathetic loser who doesn’t even match it’s descriptions even one bit. Even the likes and dislikes. I do like violet that much. I prefer black, red, blue and silver and other boring colors like brown and gray. I also like monotonous colors. I do not want to receive gardening stuff and planting books as a gift. Geez. Bonsai are fine though. My hobbies and pastimes does not include body-building. I can’t even pick a dumbbell up, seriously. And so on… To conclude everything, do not believe that site! (>o<)#
Anyway, I wish everyone a happy lunar new year!
