The Year of the Pig!

I was just reading the entry on Wikipedia about the Pig Zodiac, which of course is the zodiac year this year, as well as my own zodiac animal. Reading through the writing under the attribute section I was surprised how much of it was exactly right describing me.

"According to customary superstition, the Pig type is usually an honest, straightforward and patient person. (Not sure about straightforward, but definitely try to be honest and I'm usually quite patient) They are a modest, shy character who prefers to work quietly behind the scenes. (That is so VERY true XD) When others despair, they are often there to offer support. (I do that to the point where it's annoying XD;) This type of person is reserved with those they do not know too well, but as time passes and they gain confidence, those around them may discover a lively and warm-hearted person behind that mask of aloofness. (Again so VERY true. I always find I'm quiet around new people, but once I get to know them well, I gradually come out of my shell and in the end they find I'm quite bubbly and talkative XD Those I work with have noticed this change in me over the past year.) Despite those born in the year of pig having a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, they have few close friends who understand them and share their inner thoughts and feelings. (Again, quite true-ish, most of my friends are online, Helen, my best friend offline, would notice things, like when I felt agitated in large crowds, yet other friends in the same situation wouldn't even notice I was feeling uncomfortable. Since having my job, I've gotten to meet a lot of people, but they only really fall under the acquaintances department and I don't truly know them) It is easy to put trust in pig type; they won't let you down and will never even attempt to do so. (I feel I AM trustworthy and I do hate letting people down, sometimes I end up doing so by accident though*) Such people simply want to do everything right according to social norms. (Again, true, I tend to do a lot of things people seem to look at me weird for, so I try to be as "normal" as possible XD; I have a habit of letting my low confidence make me do stupid things, so I try and not do those stupid things)

Also according to customary superstition, that these people are not vengeful creatures. If someone tries to take advantage of them, the pig type tend to withdraw to reflect on the problem and protect themselves. All they need in such situations is a little time to find a constructive way to respond. (Very true, I hate the idea of "Revenge", to me, if someone does something to you and you do something equally as bad in revenge, you just stoop down to their level. I get upset if people do something bad to me, but I let it all pass and if it wasn't too bad or not a repetitive thing, I forgive the person) The people of the pig type are conservative creatures of habit. They dislike being made to travel too far from familiar surroundings, unless it is a trip to the countryside. They love nature and are never happier than when they are out somewhere, far from the city. (This is...half true I guess, I do like travelling and going to new places, but I do hate leaving familiar surroundings to go into unfamiliar ones, it's easy if I have a familiar person with me, but on my own it's difficult. The countryside is one of my most favourite places to me and probably the place I feel more at home at while away from home)

There is a tolerant and peaceful side to the character of Pig types. (Yeah, I feel I am quite tolerant of some things people find annoying. I tend to be more peaceful than others too.) Such people are never afraid to allow others their freedom of expression; they do not want to cause arguments and if there is any way to avoid arguing, they will probably take this option. (DA_R2 IRC Channel know this all too well XD; I don't like arguments, I don't like causing arguments and if an argument does start I try and find the best way to solve it without arguing, with a peaceful ending. Unfortunately any online or offline argument I've tried to calm, I usually fail with because those involved are too angry themselves to listen ^^;) They are not weak, however, and if the situation forces them to fight these people will rise to the occasion, whether it is to defend themselves or those close to them.(Again, true, if I feel a friend is being mistreated, I defend them, if I feel I'm not being listened to, I get annoyed and start raising my voice a bit more, if I know I'm right in a discussion and the other person is wrong, I don't back down) People of the Boar type are the most admired by others. (I am? XD Well, a lot of people really like my artwork and the GX Parody videos do well under the small group that loves them, but there's people out there who can do so much better than me XD;)"
Talking of the Chinese Zodiac, one of my art ideas earlier this year was to make a Pokémon Zodiac, I even roughly worked out which Pokémon I wanted for each zodiac:
Rat - Rattata
Ox - Tauros
Tiger - Raikou
Rabbit - Buneary
Dragon - Dragonair
Horse - Rapidash
Sheep - Mareep
Monkey - Aipom
Rooster - Combusken
Dog - Arcanine
Pig - Spoink
Snake - Seviper or Arbok
I would do Digimon too, but they already covered the Chinese zodiac in Tamers with the 12 Devas ;D

Maybe it's something I can start on this week :3
