Anyway, something people might not know about me, I have a pretty short attention span unless I'm reading a really good book. Everything else, not so much. My school work is constantly punctuated with email checks, snack breaks, random internet searches, watching of TV. And when I'm watching a movie, I'm usually on the computer writing, or drawing, or playing with the Legos I refuse to give away. I need to keep my hands busy and focussing on one thing for too long tends to leave me feeling agitated. I blame it on the anxiety disorder but who the hell knows why I do what I do.
Today, while working on an assignment that's due tomorrow (yeah, don't like that prof much) I took a break to have an online tarot reading. Again, I don't know why. It just seemed like the thing to do. So I did. Have to say, it was amusing. I was particularly curious about the "love" reading given that I'm just... well I'm awful at relationships. Probably a reason I've never had one. Aside from my eccentricities and pickiness.
Here are my results:
These were my immediate thoughts:
- Love is the Devil. Yes, that seems about right. Or am I to fall in love with the Devil. Holy crap, I'll be Ms. DeVil. I will not wear a puppy fur coat!
- The Hanged Man represents my present. Okay, yeah, I can see that. Does that mean my love life is suicidal? Because that actually explains a lot.
- Friendship and the Hermit. Well, that just seems like an oxymoron to me. Is the Internet insulting me? What the hell! You don't know me! Stop knowing me!
- Ah yes! When I think of sex, I do think of a flaming tower from which the inhabitants must fling themselves from the windows if they have any hope of surviving. I bring new meaning to the forty year old virgin. Or STDs... Is that too phallic for a lesbian? Is it "flaming" because I'm gay? I take offence to that. So many questions. Also, I don't have STDs... WILL I GET AN STD?!
As you can see, I'm highly intelligent. I thought of these interpretations all by myself. Given that I'm not a tarot specialist, I decided I should see the Internet's interpretation. Just to be sure.
I knew it! People don't love me at all! Right now, my deepest emotion is vindication! I was paranoid that this was happening but now I know! I bet the card is talking about Dana... Kidding! She's in psychology... she's at least mildly interested in other people. Wait a minute! Is that why she's interested in being my friend? I am on to you Dana!
So... I'm contemplating life and tripping? By tripping do you mean taking a trip or tripping over things? Because I'm quite good at the latter though I would prefer the former. I suppose I'd have plenty of time to contemplate life from a hospital bed... you know, which I earned after I tripped down a flight of stairs.
Excellent. An excuse to stay away from family. Honestly, sometimes I do feel like jumping out a tower window when I have to talk to some of them. As for relationships, I still don't have one so no worries there!
These are the things I do. Do they make sense? No. Absolutely not.
And that's the kind of day it's been in Laurenland. May the cards be with you.
