A Year of Oink

A Year of Oink

Exactly a month from now, I will be turning 24 years old. Yes, I am not growing any younger. Twenty double O seven is my year in the Chinese Calendar.

I was born in the year of Pig. To be precise, I am a Water Pig. And I am a perfect picture of what and how Water Pigs should be. Well, except for the last line in the next paragraph.

The influence of Water makes the generous, kind Pig infinitely malleable and too rusting for his or her own good. Nevertheless, these elemental Pigs are adept at dealing with people and have a gift for divining what is going on in other people's mind. As a result, although they are easily influenced, they can also be highly persuasive with others. By nature helpful and kind, they like to be of service. A hard worker and often keen and successful in business, this is also a very sociable Animal who loves parties. Yet in fact, the Water Pig is happiest of all in the bosom of the family.

If I was the happiest bosom in my family, I would not want to be in the shoes of my siblings.

The chief characteristics of people born under the sign of the Pig are shown in the panel (above). Always considerate, the Pig is ready to drop whatever he or she may be doing and run to the assistance of anyone in need. Because Pigs are so generous they give willingly of their time and money to help those less fortunate than themselves. Sometimes people take advantage of their exceptionally good natures but they seldom bear a grudge and always give others chance after give others chance after chance to redeem themselves. More than anything, these people like harmony and detest discord and will go to great lengths to overlook or excuse bad manners and crass behavior or to smooth other people's ruffled feathers. However, if put upon too often, even this normally easygoing individual will draw the line and begin to get angry. A Pig in a rage is not a pretty sight!

I am always willing to give a second chance to those who deserve it. And when I am mad, I can be the biggest bitch that you will ever see.

Pig people can be taken advantage of and certainly taken for granted, as they are so trustworthy and entirely dependable. By nature they are more at east giving than receiving and are always happy to share - although this works both ways, and they do not realise that some people are more possessive than they are and have no wish to share back.

Looking back, I give my trust to almost everyone. One reason why sometimes, I feel like I am being taken for granted or being taken advantage of. But I am smart. I know when enough is enough. And I could someone in my life in a blink of an eye. I know the people who are worth keeping for the rest of my life.

More or less, the description of a Pig I found in the site perfectly describes me. Funny how sometimes, these things are true.
