Dragon (said like LemOn)

So I promise that I was doing homework, but one thing led to another and I found myself reading about my Chinese Zodiac, seriously I was doing homework. Anyway, this thing kind of scared me because it was dead on. I emphasized some important things, but really I had to hold back because most of it is ME! Read if you please:

Occupying the 5th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Dragon is the mightiest of the signs. Dragons symbolize such character traits as dominance and ambition (quiet). Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion. Unfortunately, this passion and enthusiasm can leave Dragons feeling exhausted and interestingly, unfulfilled(sometimes).

While Dragons frequently help others, rarely will they ask for help (Rachel knows). Others are attracted to Dragons, especially their colorful personalities, but deep down, Dragons prefer to be alone. Perhaps that is because they’re most successful when working alone. Their preference to be alone can come across as arrogance or conceitedness, but these qualities aren’t applicable(also not applicable is depression). Dragons have tempers that can flare fast!


Considering their hard-working nature, Dragons are healthy overall. They do get stressed and suffer from periodic tension/headaches, likely because they take so many risks. Dragons could benefit from incorporating mild activity into their lives. Yoga or walking would be good as these activities can work both their minds and their bodies.


Dragons prefer leading to being led. Jobs that allow them to express their creativity are good choices. Some good careers include: inventor, manager, computer analyst, lawyer, engineer, architect, broker, and sales person.


Dragons will give into love, but won’t give up their independence. Because they have quick, sometimes vengeful tempers, their partners need to be tough-skinned. Dragons enjoy others who are intriguing, and when they find the right partners, they’ll usually commit to that person for life.

More rooted in the ground, Earth Dragons make better decisions because they act more rationally. Earth Dragons are level-headed and able to control their behaviors. They’re more supportive of others, but they prefer being admired by others.

I remember when I was little and I would tell my mom "I'm bored!" and she would totally flip out and by flip out I mean be completely frustrated with the fact that I couldn't seem to find anything to occupy my time. Tonight it hit me:

#1a. She was so annoyed because she had SO much to do and I couldn't even enjoy my carefree existence.
#2b. I am becoming my mother.

I mean the clues were all there in front of me. Missy was the first to go. I can't remember the last time I talked to her when she wasn't running, I mean running, to something. Then there was Brittany. I mean the OCD has always made her a little crazy. I thought it would be fine after PA school. And then I thought it would be fine when she cut down on work. But it has only gotten worse.

Everything just came together minutes ago, as I finished up bridal shower invitations and realized I hadn't finished the gift I've been trying to finish making for at least a week, not to mention that research paper I haven't started. The worst part is that all day I was a multitasking productive machine. My list of have to dos and want to dos exceeds my time, and this will always be the case.

Thanks mom.
