The Relevance is Uncanny

Going back to work earlier tonight, it was slow enough that we (Manoah, James, and I) actually had time to lean back and rest for a bit, during which time he pulled out his phone and asked us when we were born so he could check our horoscopes. I can't remember what James' said, but as for mine, I haven't so much as thought of the things in at least three or four years - I remember reading them as part of the comics page in the paper - yet mine was remarkably relevant, setting aside the bit about income:

What are you in need of right now? A resolution to a pressing problem? An increase in your income? A chance to reconnect with someone you are in conflict with? A shoulder to cry on? Whatever it is that you need the most, you will have. Soon, you will have a special opportunity or make an essential connection that will enable you to get what you need. The catch is, it must be something that you actually need rather than just want. And you will have to make the most of that opportunity or connection.

Now let's see. A resolution to a pressing problem? Assuming everything I have going on could be condensed into one simple description, then yes, I would like that. An increase in my income? It would be nice, but as yet, is not something I wish I had. A chance to reconnect with somebody I'm in conflict with? Well... yes, except I'm not so much in active conflict with that person these days, as they've made it abundantly clear that they do not wish to know what's wrong with me. Finally, a shoulder to cry on? At specific points, very much yes. I can think of one possible scenario where I would completely fall apart in front of the other person and thoroughly ruin things with them in the process, but that time has yes to come, and even if it does, I will try my hardest to avoid that scenario, unless I think of some reason between now and then to need to fall apart. It's hard to explain, but anyways, moving on, there's always a catch, right? Their way of saying "If it doesn't work out, you obviously didn't try hard enough", meaning in my case that I didn't try my hardest to make the most of that opportunity (or connection). I do try though. Honestly. Such as tonight, where it took me a fair while to ask Manoah to open that page on his phone again so I could copy down what it said. I was really quite worried that he would ask "Why?", but in the end he only asked for my email address so he could send it to me that way. That aside though, I mean, what are the chances? I am obviously reluctant to buy completely into it, but I would also be lying if I said it wasn't the least bit heartening <3

On the less-good side of things though, I am moderately displeased with my schedule for the next two days, but I didn't say anything about it before now, so I don't have much room to complain. Setting that aside, however, I work from 4-11, which means I'll have to leave the house at 3, and because there's no way whatsoever I would actually wake up right at 3 and immediately leave for work, I'll have to get up at 2, if not 1 in the afternoon. Not all bad, considering I went to bed early yesterday night as well, and I would've needed to start soon anyways with returning to Heart and Stroke rapidly approaching, but I didn't really take the time to think about what starting an hour earlier would mean until I started walking home tonight. It definitely means that I need to get to bed soon though, and I think now would be the perfect time. Hopefully I won't wake up in an hour and think I have to head out again~
