Happy Chinese New Year! To celebrate- I am wearing bright red nail polish (it’s also great for brightening up dreary winter days).
2012 marks the Year of the Dragon and according to ancient Chinese astrology, those born under this sign are highly ambitious, passionate and successful. I got curious and looked up my own sign and discovered that I’m the Year of the Rooster—which might explain why I believe in loyalty, working hard and being honest. Other Rooster characteristics are Brave (not always), Romantic (sometimes), Motivated (always), Blunt (oh yes), Resentful (untrue) and Boastful (try not to be!)
I also learned that I happen to be born under a special “Fire Rooster” sign. Interestingly enough, a Fire Rooster’s image is his most prized possession. While I wouldn’t say that applies to me (I care about exercise more than primping), it is my life’s work to make others feel empowered through makeup.
Even though many of the “Rooster” traits fit me- I can’t imagine everyone in my high school class (New Trier West- 1975) shares the same personality. -BB
