2012: Year of the Dragon

OHHHH, SHIT! I woke up today feeling so freaking energized and amazing that I can hardly stand myself… Okay, yes I can stand myself (but only just barely). I put some adjustments into place in the last few months and weeks, and I am so glad I did. I feel utterly fabulous right now. Haters be damned (see previous blog entry). I simplified my diet, adjusted my workout strategy, started napping (HUGELY important, I am finding), and decided to grow my hair out to the length I had in college. I’m sorry, but I can’t help being this fucking fabulous…

All this in time for the Chinese New Year, and this is MY year. The Chinese zodiac is a cycle of 12, just as the European, but rather than a 12-month cycle, it’s a 12-year cycle. So 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964, etc. are dragon years. Within that 12-year animal cycle there is also a 5-year elemental cycle (earth, water, fire, metal, wood), so each animal/element combination comes around only once every 60 years… My birth year was a Fire Dragon year, and how appropriate is that for a flaming flamer of fiery burning energy such as moi? 😉

What I love about being a Dragon is that we’re the only people symbolized by a mythological animal on the Chinese zodiac: There simply isn’t an animal in the physical world that can truly encapsulate the marvelous creatures Dragons are. MWAHAHAHA! But I’m biased, so you should probably dismiss that part. Anyway, I’m feeling energized and ferocious. I attribute it to the simple, but consistent diet I’m eating (and the napping). Really, if you don’t nap… honestly… you need to. Find a way. I promise you, it helps whatever ails you. That and water. And being a Dragon.

Okay, I would write more, but I have to go be awesome somewhere. Muah. xoxoxo

  1. Well, well, well… Oh! My Goodness…Isn’t it the pecular noisy sound of a Dragon’s egg hatching that I am hearing? It sounds like a rebirth, if I may. I guess your hair should soon become a mane: “absolutely firebulous” could be your name, Devon… Well, well, well…
    Have a nice day in your City of Charlotte. Bonne journée! Phil from Paris.

    P. S.: I’m happy that you finally found a solution these last days, thanks to one of Mitch Branson’s diets. This Man is a “wonderful” example of what one can do with a “respectul bodybuilding attitude”: He is so beautiful!

  2. I’d love to see an updated picture or maybe an old picture of what your hair looked like in college. Inquiring minds want to.

  3. Almost a month later, but I am so glad to read this! Fuck the haters!

    I wonder if dragons are related to the Phoenix in the mythological world!
