One of my favorite things to share, being born in 1989, is that I'm a snake!!

A Gryffindor as a rat? Cause that worked so well the last time!

In all seriousness though, I've always quite liked being a rat and I like it even more now I've read the characteristics.

I'm a rat. I think it fits me except that I don't think I'm very quick-witted or sociable. I mean, I'm a friendly person and all, but don't look for me to be the one to start a conversation unless we're talking about good books, ballet, or global health. Now those subjects I could talk about all day. :)

Update: After going through the first lesson for my Chinese Festivals class, I learned that I am not a snake :blink:

I was born Jan. 17, and in 1989 the Chinese new year did not start until Feb. 6, so I am actually a Dragon!! The last 28 years of my life have been a LIE!! :(


I mean, dragons are pretty cool, i just thought it was fate being a Snake and a Slytherin.....

I'm a Horse, which I've actually felt has never quite fit me. I'm not nearly as sociable and extroverted as the sign is supposed to be. :huh: But I do love horses, ( :huh: *Coughs* especially unicorns *coughs*) so at least it's not too bad for me! lol
