Today is first day of the Lunar New Year. To get into the swing of things, my colleague and I looked up our Chinese Zodiac signs. Turns out I was born in the year of the Monkey, associated with the ‘Earth’ element. ‘Monkey’ personalities are said to be witty, intelligent, creative, active, curious and mischievous, and ‘Earth’ Monkey types are also frank, optimistic and fearless – so far so good, I can live with those characteristics. However, when it came to the ideal career for Monkeys, for me it all went a bit banana-shaped. Apparently Monkeys work hard and are able to adapt to different working environments (check) but their best jobs include accounting and banking, engineering, stock market trading, air traffic control, and salesmanship. Unfortunately anything to do with numbers, money and maths makes me want to hide in the nearest tree-top. Until I was shown this video and accounting suddenly looks much more fun! Monkey types love practical jokes so I’m unleashing my cheeky characteristic here – enjoy!
