After some research, I guess I kind of am a Pisces:

Pisces are selfless, they are always willing to help others, without hoping to get anything back. Pisces is a Water sign and as such this zodiac sign is characterized by empathy and expressed emotional capacity. Their ruling planet is Neptune, so Pisces are more intuitive than others and have an artistic talent.
 
You learn something new everyday I suppose?

I'm not very familiar with or attached to this kind of thing, though (after all, you don't need a horoscope or a microscope to see the mess that you're in a-hard-days-night-george-10).

I amn't big into horoscopes, but learning about my alleged zodiac traits certainly has helped me to see my own personality shortcomings (impatient, egotistical, etc.), so I guess this superstitious nonsense is good for something. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I'm a Leo, although I have no idea what that means. Honestly, the only reason I know even a tiny little bit about it is because I used to have a Garfield statue that said Leo on it LOL.

It looked like this

Haha, that's cute. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Let's see what the Internet has to say:

Strengths: Creative, passionate, generous, warm-hearted, cheerful, humorous

Weaknesses: Arrogant, stubborn, self-centered, lazy, inflexible

I definitely see myself in the strengths section! Although not to toot my own horn a-hard-days-night-paul-11 but I don't really see myself as self-centered or anything. I am SUPER lazy though, I'll give it that. I also did some searching of my own and apparently Leo's are supposed to be super confident and brave, which I am 100% not. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

I relate to some of it and others not so much, which I guess is fine. Those daily horoscope stuff sound kinda fun, though!

Virgo traits are:

Strengths: Loyal, analytical, kind, hardworking, practical

Weaknesses: Shyness, worry, overly critical of self and others, all work and no play

Virgo likes: Animals, healthy food, books, nature, cleanliness

Virgo dislikes: Rudeness, asking for help, taking center stage

I think most of these apply to me, except maybe "hardworking," "all work and no play"

and "healthy food." Otherwise that all described me pretty well.

On the other hand...

[traits of a Leo]

Strengths: Creative, passionate, generous, warm-hearted, cheerful, humorous

I'm not especially cheerful or humorous, and while I'd like to think I'm creative and generous I'm not really.

Weaknesses: Arrogant, stubborn, self-centered, lazy, inflexible

  

I'm certainly stubborn, lazy, and inflexible, but I wouldn't say that I'm arrogant (am I arrogant? I hope not).

 

So I think the Virgo traits fit me much better.

How do you remember things?

Normally, if I need to remember something, I write it on my arm or set a reminder on my phone.

I stuff it in my brain, which usually works, but if it's something really important, I'll link it to an object I know I'll see when I have to remember the thing. That way, when I look at the object, I'll think, Oh, right!

I guess it depends what the thing is. If it's an event, I put it in google calendar. If it's a formula, I hope that I get a summary sheet for the test... I try to go over things occasionally, which helps.

I try to make mental notes. Sometimes I'll write it down (note on my phone or sketchbook, depending) but that's typically just a means to help me remember it. If it's a date, I'll put it in my Google calendar.

I put it in my iPhone notes, or simply remember. If it’s important I’ll usually remember it.

I think we're due for a new question: 

Which part of a song do you tend to experience most? (Melody, lyrics, instruments, etc.) Does it depend on the song?

I shall say I value solid songwriting over instrument playing. Generally speaking, the melody determines whether I like the song or not, the lyrics determine how much I like this song.

I don't really know how to answer this question, but I know that lyrics are generally the least memorable parts of songs for me; they're sort of separate from the actual music. This is probably because I always have a hell of a time trying to tell what the singers are singing, and it's much easier to relax and ignore the lyrics and focus on the music. When I was a little kid, I didn't even know that singers sang real words.

Love one another.
