Year of the Tiger

First off, Happy Belated Chinese New Year’s/Valentine’s Day.

I get two weeks off for the holidays: last week and this week. The boyfriend got ten days off last week too, but we were kept busy due to an unfortunate event so there were other things on our minds besides enjoying the break.

I’m surprised that this little island of ours hasn’t drowned and disappeared into the ocean yet. It’s been cold and raining nonstop for the past two days, which also means that I haven’t left my place in 48 hours which will be going on close to 72 hours. Because it’s Chinese New Year, and everyone takes a week off, there’s also not much stores or shops open either. I ordered a lot of pizza on the first night and have been living off that for awhile. Kinda feels like college again, especially the lounging-in-sweats-and-eating-cold-pizza-while-studying-occasionally part.

Why the studying? I’ve finally signed up for the GMAT. I’m taking it on March 9th. I’m one of those people who just work better under pressure and deadlines, so I figured if I didn’t actually sign up, then I would never really get around to taking it no matter how much I studied. Technically, I’ve been “studying” on and off since last April. Ergo, a deadline is necessary.

Anyways, I was born in 1985, the year of the Ox, so this is my forecast for this upcoming year.

Forecast for 2010
The Ox loves methodical planning and everything working out in the correct time. The Year of the Tiger will throw all this to the wind with it’s fast pace and unexpected developments! People born under this sign may find 2010 a challenge but in a good way. The Ox will have to adapt to new routines, delays and obtacles thrown in his way, but he will be well able for any task and may find new hidden talents and personal power he didn’t know existed. Hobbies, relaxing pursuits and friendships will all be beautifully highlighted during the Year of the Tiger and will provide a welcome relief to any stresses he may face. Home improvements and redecorating plans will move forward smoothly with excellent results. Career opportunities will present themselves from April to June, while exciting, intense romantic encounters are likely in July, August and December. An important aspect for those under this sign in 2010 is to be mindful and caring of loved ones. It will be crucial to listen to them and also to accept any help they may offer during this changeable year.

Hey, that sounds pretty good to me. I’ve always had a thing for horoscopes, but I do have a sneaking suspicion that they only sound so accurate because I can always think of something in my life that applies. Is that the point? Or are they really just that good? Let me know; you can find out yours here.

  1. Horoscopes do tend to be written generically enough to apply to the vast majority. They’re a milder version of the Doomsday Guy- if they’re wrong, no biggie, if right, great! Unless, of course, if it said something bad was going to happen. At least it’s not the end of the world.

    Whether or not you ‘believe’ in horoscopes, they still point out character flaws to improve and give you something good to look forward to and anticipate. Maybe that’s what makes them that good.
