Hi, Internet. You look great today.
So, things have been pretty busy with me. I’ve accepted that my most creative time is between 9PM and 3AM, so guess when I work? You guessed it — overnight. Actually, I work from about 9AM-3PM, take a nap from 4PM-8PM, work from 9PM-3AM and nap from 4AM-8AM. I still get my 8 hours of sleep, I put my 12 hours in. It’s a lot. But it’s what you do when you’re deciding what your next career move is, yeah? Yeah.
I don’t have a whole lot of note to mention, so let’s go with three things I’m looking forward to this week, and then something ridiculously amazing that I want to tell you about, guys.
- I placed an order with my cousin who does #Advocare. Remember when I did the 10-day cleanse a month or so ago? That was pretty okay. I’ll do that again in a few months. I’ve been struggling with finding the right supplements to be on that don’t make me feel like shit, so I’m giving another “no pharmaceutical chemicals approach”a try . You might remember that I tried this a few years back and had decent success. So after talking to my cousin for several hours on the phone, weighing the pros and cons, and doing a ridiculous amount of research into supplements that are out there, I ordered some stuff. I’m going to try it before I tell you about it. You know, I’m trusty like that.
- I’m going on a date tomorrow night with a dear old friend. I wrote a blog post about him years ago, but I can’t seem to find it. (Update: I FOUND IT) Long story short, he’s always been one of my favorite people, especially through high school. I’m looking forward to catching up, hugging his face off, and eating all the cheese and duck salad that I can handle.
- The MS Walk is this weekend. I haven’t been gung-ho about getting donations this year because life and all. But if you care to donate to the lovely cause, you are more than welcome. I mean, if you are in the area and you want to come and walk with your friend Katie Colihan. I WOULD LOVE THAT TOO.
When one of the lovely women of the internet, Mikael posted that she had found a new calling, I rushed immediately to read her post. I’m truly in love with reading about people taking on new passion-projects. As I read through her explaining how she believes that we all have more than one calling, I was nodding my head in agreement along with her. I recommend you read her post on your own, but I am going to spoil it a bit. Her new calling is doing Tarot Card reading. I’m sure some of you are navigating away from the page, totally cool. But hear me out.
I’ve been to a psychic twice.
One told me I was going to marry someone with the initial “D”. I’ve never even dated someone with the initial D. So, that went really well.
Another tried to get me to pay $150 to clean my dirty aura. So, that also went well.
This was nothing like either of those experiences.
There was something different about the vibe that Mikael gave off, just in her post though. She was giving away a few free Tarot readings in order for her to get some practice in, and of course I was going to help her in any way that I could. In true Katie form, I almost wanted it not to work (Sorry, Mikael!) so that I could prove my theory right — there isn’t a connection to the spiritual world here on Earth.
I won’t preach to you — it’s not my style — but when I say that Mikael’s reading was insanely life changing, it was insanely life changing. She didn’t predict my future. She didn’t say “You’re going to marry someone with the initial D”. She DID say that I’ve already encountered or will encounter someone “who’s warm, generous and refined–a true gentleman.” She also said that my romantic card jumped out at her, which she didn’t expect at all. With the question that I asked her, she assumed it was going to be about self-love. This intrigued me in ways that I won’t talk about right now because I’m all about that privacy now. (You could maybe email me and ask, but I’d probably turn it around, avoid the question, and ask about you. Let’s be serious.)
The part that got me was that Mikael and I — we’re cool. We don’t e-mail or have phone dates at all. But we’ll have a quick Twitter exchange and I know she’s a part of my support squad, and I hope she knows I’m part of hers. So she doesn’t know an intense amount about me, especially since I don’t blog as candidly anymore. But the things she said were like she knew…stuff. Stuff that I haven’t shared with the internet. Stuff that legit had me crying ugly cries. It was a truly magical experience that has changed the entire way that I live my life.
I don’t know much. But what I do know is that Mikael has this talent with Tarot. Her calling? It’s a true one. I believe she has a handful of free sessions left, if you want to try her out. HIGHLY RECOMMEND WITH ALL OF MY HAPPY LITTLE SOUL.
