30DBH Day 7 – Let Me Look Into My Crystal Ball
Day 07 — I went to see a psychic, and was given the opportunity to ask three questions – I would ask…
This is a pretty weird question to answer mostly because I don’t believe in psychics just like I don’t believe in many other supernatural things like ghosts or the loch ness monster. I don’t think it’s possible to know the future because there are so many little things that affect what’s going to happen. People that you don’t even know or even random occurrences like the cliche “butterfly flapping its wings” all have a part in constructing our future and so there are an infinite number of possible “futures.” How in the world is someone going to be able to predict the one that actually happens in this universe? Beats me.
But just to be cool let’s pretend that this sorcery is actually possible…
I would probably ask:
- What field should I go into?
- Will I settle down and have a family?
- What company ends up being the new Google/Apple/Instagram?
Number one because I’m so confused as to what I want to do for the rest of my life. I used to think that I was sure, but now that I’m seeing other people make a living off of things that I thought could at most be really fun hobbies I’m starting to wonder whether I should be practical or reach for the stars. I talk about this in one of my recent vlogs if you want to hear me be confused about life. And before you tell me that a psychic isn’t my personal life coach I’d like to remind you that I don’t actually believe in them.
Number two because I’ve always wondered about this. Over the past three years I’ve realized that I’m a very family oriented and monogamous person, but I never felt like that before. For some reason I always pictured myself as the type of person who would only find love much, much later in life and I blame romantic comedies for this. I’d want to know because despite the fact that I see myself settling down and starting a family within the next 10 years I know that a lot can change. Maybe I’ll change. I’d just want to know.
Number three because I’d want to make sure that I’d invest in them right away. I know that money can’t buy happiness, but it can help enhance it if you use it right. I know that so much of the stress I feel towards career choices right now would be totally eradicated if I knew that I wouldn’t have to worry about money, like EVER. Also, then I’d definitely be able to afford the piece(s) of art I’m going to talk about tomorrow. :D
30 Days of Blogging Honestly, or 30DBH as I like to call it, is a monthly project of sorts where you must answer 30 questions honestly throughout the month of April 2012. Here’s my post explaining it and here’s a list of other participants.
