For some unexplained reason, I find joy in categorizing anything and everything in list form.
Well, I guess there is a explanation of some sorts according to one particular person. My lovely roommate slash best friend (slash hot bitch) has become our own resident astrologer, evaluating those around her’s lives and personalities based on their astrological sign. Being born the day after Christmas has me as a Capricorn. When I was younger I denied an affiliation with the sign of the goat, instead aligning myself with Sagittarius.
Seriously, Google “Capricorn” and read the description, here’s a little taste for you “The sign Capricorn is one of the most stable and (mostly) serious of the zodiacal types. These independent, rocklike characters have many sterling qualities. They are normally confident, strong willed and calm. These hardworking, unemotional, shrewd, practical, responsible, persevering, and cautious to the extreme persons, are capable of persisting for as long as is necessary to accomplish a goal they have set for themselves.”
You can probably see why as a little girl I was horrified at who I supposedly was. As of late however, I have some to realize that Ifulfill my description to the highest degree. List-making is a Capricornian activity, and I make them more often than I would like to admit, actually.
Anyways, here is a list of things whose existence I am throughly grateful for.
