What is an ascendant sign? Your ascendant/rising sign is the sign rising over the Eastern Horizon at the time of your birth.
How do I find out my ascendant sign? Here: 1. You’d need your birth time as well.
What does my ascendant sign tell about me? Your ascendant sign represents the “facade” you put on in front of others. It’s people’s first impression of you.
What does it mean if both my sun and rising signs are the same? It means that how people view you is the same as how you are on the inside.
You come across as determined and intense. You rarely take things lightly. You don’t give your trust to others easily but when you do, you are comitted. You love success and don’t mind the competition. You are emotional, but you rarely show it.
Your psychological nature is bilious with aggressive impulses that spur the transformation of your being and of any situation you are involved in. You are constantly struggling to assert yourself. You cannot refrain from testing others with cutting remarks, not because you want to hurt them, but because you want to know them better through their reaction; life and the feeling of aliveness are experienced through rebellion and tension. Your aggressive attitude may equate with sly inquisition as often, you remain silent, introverted and secretive, mulling over turbulent thoughts in the depths of your mind, leaving others puzzled by your quite strange behaviour.
"... so for all those first generation pen junkies, what was that defining moment when that pen passion was lit up?"
That’s tough. I feel like maybe I was always a pen junkie, but I didn’t really allow myself to get into it because pens are expensive (especially if they’re Japanese)! This recent realization probably came to me last year? Or the year before that, when I bought a couple of gel pens when we went to Japantown after JLPT. I got home and regretted not buying more colors! I told myself since I only get to go to Kinokuniya once in a very long time, I’d let myself splurge. xD
But yeah, I used to collect pencils and keep them all in my Sanrio pencil box. They were more for admiring than for using. Haha And my aunt said she used to do the same!
Holy crap! I can’t believe I’m actually doing this… Of all the things that I could be in life, and all the things that people think I should be, I aspire to be a dancer. If I make it through the auditions, I’m going to MAJOR in dance! That is a BIG decision! I’m going to be poorand struggling like hell to find work, but at least I’ll be doing what I love.
Am I the only one who doesn’t particularly get the definition of homesickness? I’ve been away from home various times for extended periods, but I’ve never really experienced homesickness. Yeah, I’ll miss my parents, miss my room, miss home-cooked meals, but it’s not like it’s a disease of any sort. It’s sort of like missing Taco Bell after not having it for a while.
I don’t believe I’ve ever felt really homesick. When I was in Taiwan, they asked if I missed my parents/home. Nope. .__.
“If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness, don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes; because you’ll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart… where your hope lives. You’ll find your way again.”—(via highofflove)
7651.) Think before you speak. What if the girl you were making fun of for being ugly got into an accident and that is why she looks the way she does? What if the boy you made fun of for being shy was abused when he was younger and now doesn't trust people? What if the girl you made fun of for being emo cuts herself because of the words you say behind her back? What if the kids you make fun of for being fat can't lose weight because they have a medical problem? What if the kids who do drugs and drink do it because they grew up in a household where drinking and doing drugs was the only way to escape reality? What if? Think before you speak.
