Blog

Hello!

 

I just checked and I completely forgot to post my two blogs even though I had the drafts done for a while now! I will be focusing on rabbits, dragons, and snakes first and then go into rooster, dog, and pig. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Cabbage x Lemons x Pumpkin Seed Magic

Since this week is all about sharing food, I thought I would share a few staples in my diet. I was looking at all of the different foods under each zodiac, trying to make connections with which ones really pertained to my lifestyle. This search led me to the rabbit and more specifically, cabbage, lemons, and pumpkin seeds. In retrospect, it just seemed like a no brainer to blog about this trio because I implement them in my diet on almost a daily basis. Cabbage for instance, I possibly eat the most of anyone in the world, whether it is roasted, raw, or fermented.

Hidden Animal Uses: Final Class

The Ted talk from last week has been sticking with me and it got me to research further into where else animal products may be hidden.  Part of me thinks that companies which produce products with animal products in them should take on the owness of informing their consumers, and part of me thinks that it is the responsibility of the consumer to know what they are buying.  This is easier said than done however, because even if you are a person who makes an effort to avoid animal products, they appear in items so obscure you might not even think to look into the vegan-ness of the i

Class Related pictures/video

My friend from the farm in Minnesota sent me this little video on valentines day and I wanted to share it with you all because it made me smile.  She said they moved hay-bales into the shape of a heart and then put the sheep and guard dogs inside to herd the sheep towards the bales so they would be in a heart shape:).   The video was shot with a drone and you can see my friend Hannah and some other farm workers on a truck at the end.  

Rabbits & Dragons

Rabbit: Rabbits, just like their real life counterparts are timid, agile, ever vigilant, attractive, and reserved people. An interesting trait that is mentioned by the hox zodiac is that rabbit is also very persistent. In our daily lives we usually forget the real nature of the "cute" and "fluffy" pet owned by many. Below that fur there is still a rodent, as persistent as the rat. It/they may not reveal their true inner nature that often, but dont be mistaken it is still there.

Snake, Rat, Ox, Tiger

     My name is Ural Sahin. Im a late joining International Student. I wasn't able to join our classes because of the huge time differences, (3-5 am). Factoring in my other classes I would get absolutely no sleep. On a different note, I picked this class because I have always weighed a little more on my rationalist side. I was hoping to find a different thought system, not necessarily based on science,horoscopes dwell exactly on that spectrum.

Class 4 (Week 8) Rooster, Dog, Pig

I really enjoyed learning about pigs. A few interesting facts I learned about them were that pigs skin is very sensitive and so one of the reasons they roll around in mud is in order to prevent getting a sunburn. Piglets can learn their mother’s voice and their mother’s will often sing to them to try and get them to fall back to sleep. Another interesting fact is that pig blood could keep humans alive if it was transfused into one’s body. The last and most shocking fact I learned is that pigs can supposedly be taught how to play video games!

rabbit and dragon

In today's class, we discussed three zodiac animals--the rabbit, dragon, and snake. It's interesting that how ancient people created these folklores to personalize animals.  What is more interesting is that until today, these zodiac animals still representing the given characteristics and people would associate others, who were born in a particular year, with corresponding characteristics / personalities of that specific zodiac animal. For example, rabbits are associated with soft, tame, and feminine, which, unfortunately, most of them are undesirable in modern days.
