    1. You were born in the Year of the Sheep.

      Sheep (goat, or ram) is among the animals that people like most. It is gentle and calm. Since ancient times, people have learned to use its fleece to make writing brushes and fur to keep warm. The white cute creature often reminds people of beautiful things.

  3. Rooster of earth ! Here I am launched on the Asian sites and I learn so: the Chinese year does not correspond exactly to ours. I thought I was a dog, I found myself a “rooster of earth”. At the same time, I am French. I could have been a frog.

      Or just a French hybrid rooster-frog you see.

        SHSL is probably a play on the ‘Super Dreadnought Level’ identifier in Japanese. For example, you can be a Super Dreadnought Level Judo Master in Japan and people know that means you’re super awesome at Judo as opposed to you being someone who teaches Judo on battleships. 🥴…👻…👀…😳…🤓!!!
