I have a tradition of looking up my yearly horoscope, both astrological and Chinese, saving it in a word document, and then reading it at the end of the year.
For YEARS, my Chinese horoscope has told me I would have 10 bad months and 2 neutral months. Then 9 bad months and 3 neutral months. Thanks, Chinese horoscope, for your boundless optimism. -_- And my horoscope for 2012, both Chinese and regular astrological, said I would be seeing a career change. At the time of reading it, I laughed at both. I don't really BELIEVE in astrology, I just think it's fun. But there ya go.
I'm glad to see that both horoscopes talk about a huge positive turn I'm going to have in 2013 and how great things are going to be. And my Chinese horoscope says I'm going to have 11 favorable and 1 neutral month!! What? That's a sudden change from years passed.
And 13 is my lucky number. I know that's odd and out of the ordinary, but Friday the 13ths are always my best days!
I realize these are all just superstitions and whatnot, but I still think it's fun. And it's better to think things are going to be good than worry that they're going to be bad in a situation where...you really don't know. The mere fact I can look forward to something unknown speaks volumes, really.
I feel really good about 2013. Not hopeful. Just...good. I know good things are going to happen, which is not something I say lightly. I just have....a feeling, though.
Unless I get hit by a bus tomorrow and die. Then...I take it back.
