I wanted a relaxing weekend, and I most definitely didn't get it. All the stress from the week just continued throughout the weekend. Work was crazy today. How can there possibly be a month until spring break?
Anyway, day six of the challenge is: your zodiac sign and if you think it fits your personality. This should be interesting.
First of all, I'm a Leo. I'd say that overall it does fit my personality, but at the same time, it doesn't at all fit my personality. How about I just go through the qualities a Leo is supposed to have. (I found these traits from various sites that I'll try to link to at the end.)
Generous and Warmhearted: This really depends on my mood. I'd say that most of the time I am, but I also tend to get cranky fairly often. At this particular moment (thanks to all that stress I mentioned), I don't think I'm feeling particularly generous and warmhearted. Overall though, I think I am. (Or, I'm just kind of cocky which would, in fact, be stereotypical of how a Leo should be.)
Creative and enthusiastic: Again, this really depends. Give me a piece of paper and tell me to write something, and I can be really creative and enthusiastic about it. Give me a piece of paper and tell me to draw something, and it'll probably be the most uncreative (and ugliest) thing you've seen in your life.
Broad-minded and expansive: I guess I could be considered broad-minded. As for expansive, apparently that can mean talkative and sociable. If you've read this blog long or follow me elsewhere on the Internet, you know I'm an incredibly shy person (definitely not a Leo trait). However, I can be extremely talkative if I know the people well.
Faithful and loving: I'd like to think that I fit this trait very well.
Pompous and patronizing: Definitely not. Although, people sometimes mistake my shyness for snobbishness when they first meet me. That's one of the many things I hate about being shy.
Bossy and interfering: When I was younger, I definitely tried to boss my friends around. It didn't usually work too well. I had two best friends back then, and the other was on the bossy side too. We argued a ton, and the other best friend just kind of stayed out of it. As we got older we both grew out of it though, so I'm not really anymore. (Amazingly, I'm still best friends with her today inspite of all that fighting today. Thankfully, we don't fight anywhere near as much as we used to.)
Dogmatic and intolerant: I had to look up dogmatic. Apparently it means you believe in things that can't be proven which I guess would be true since I'm a religious person. However, I definitely wouldn't say I'm intolerant.
Basically, I'd say some of the traits for a Leo fit me and some don't. I could probably say the same thing for every other sign though which is why I don't put much faith in astrology. I know one thing, I'm no where near as extroverted as Leos are apparently supposed to be.
The website I found all of these traits on had a lot more suff, but I don't want to make this post too long.
