He was born in the Year of the Ox. Oxen are quick to be friendly with other people, however, they’re slow to transition into a deeper relationship. They believe strongly in themselves, nevertheless, they are also stubborn and hate to fail or be challenged. Although they say little they can be very opinionated.
Moreover, Oxen are great friends and very protective of their loved ones. Also, they are calm, methodical, patient and can be trusted. They believe that flirting is a waste of time and they will search for their soulmate as long as it takes.
Lastly, the Ox people are not very good at communicating with others, therefore, they prefer to stay alone at home instead of going out and participating in group activities. In addition, people born in the Year of the Ox are reliable, strong, conscientious, and fair, inspiring confidence in others.

”I’m actually working on a full movie and the trailer is out now.”
Daylyt later added:
”It is called, Daylyt: I’m an Animal. And it’s a movie that I wrote, directed and produced completely by myself and I’m the lead actor in the movie.”
