Do you believe in karma?
I used to. It made sense. Everything has energy, everything is caused by something else…Newton’s law of conservation of energy… in my mind, Karma fit into this. Just a different kind of energy.
I’m less of a believer now.
This has seriously been one of the more difficult periods of my life.
We have ROACHES.
Roommate and I were moving a few boxes over in preparation for the Big Move.
We were there for 30 minutes.
We killed 11 roaches and a bunch of little tiny bugs.
We have to call exterminators.
We will probably have to postpone the movers.
We have one apartment with no floors or doors, and another with pests.
What the flip did we do to deserve this?
I know. Karma isn’t reaaaal. Because how do you explain starving children and abandoned dogs and whatnot?
I don’t know. It just feels like somewhere, we messed up, and now we’re being punished for it. Which we can’t figure out. I was even super nice to Sienna today. With no motive. She was there and I was nice.
Or maybe we didn’t do anything. Maybe this is the bad stuff before the good things happen.
I hope my good karma is fantastic. A handsome guy, a good job offer, my student loans magically paid off…
Actually I should probably use it to do good. I want some dogs adopted. Some kids fed. A dry place to have rain. Someone sad to have a hug.
In case karma is real, I send all my readers good vibes. This internet stranger is genuinely hoping something nice happens to you today.
