A New Kind of Horoscope

So, I have a new obsession. I am engrossed with the concept of astrology and horoscope signs. How interesting is it that our personalities and our day-to-day events can be predicted based on the time, date, and place that we were born?! I find it completely fascinating.

Upon doing my own research on astrology and horoscopes, I have found that there are many other ways to categorize us as people, as well. I have decided that there are three different kinds of people in this world as I have witnessed thus far in my 19 years of life. I have categorized everyone into three different genres or “types” of people according to the way that they start their day; their breakfast.

First, there are those who run too late in the morning to have breakfast. They may roll out of bed and leave the house in pajamas or they may wake up just in time to perfect an outfit. Either way, this type of person does not leave time for the miniscule things such as breakfast. They are the fast-thinkers and the go-getters. Although they don’t always pay attention to details, such as eating breakfast, they have a much better idea of the larger picture than most. They may not appear to be the geniuses of the crowd, but they are the kind of people who end up making the biggest moves in life.

Secondly, there are those who eat something small in the morning. Not too much, but just enough. They make have some yogurt, and apple, or even toast or a bowl of cereal. This way, they are prepared for the day and won’t get that mid-morning stomach growl before they have even really gotten the chance to start their day. Not only are these kinds of people conscious of their hunger and health, but they like to give themselves time to prepare for events, whether they be small like going to class or bigger such as preparing for an important job interview. Procrastination is natural on occasion, but in order to keep their life on track – and they will – they prefer to prepare properly as to not be caught off guard.

Third, there are the people who prefer to go all out with the start of their morning. The honor breakfast as being important and choose to eat substantial meals such as pancakes, shakes, egg sandwiches, or yogurt parfaits. Although substantial, their breakfast isn’t necessarily heavy. This is metaphoric to their lives. Although they work hard, they aren’t necessarily the people who end up with their dream job or life, but are the people who earn their position and watch out for themselves and their future. It’s easy to judge these people as being pretentious or too conscious, but they simply prefer to be safe. This quality ends up not only helping them, but also those around them.

As with most horoscopes, predictions, and descriptions, my “types” are not spot-on. They very well may be quite the opposite. Sometimes I find myself being a small morning eater, and sometimes I find myself a big morning eater. Nothing is black and white. These types are not judgments, but instead they provide insight from my experiences. As goofy as it may sound, you can learn a whole lot more from the small things than we choose to admit.
