Year Card

So I just heard about this thing called a tarot year card. And I honestly do not know how I feel about it. The idea is that using your birthday, the month and the day and the year you are in, you can figure out what your year card is.

So for instance my card from November 21, 2015 – November 21, 2016 would be the Death card. 11+21+2015=2047. 2+0+4+7=13. The Death card: Letting go of something old to make way for something new, Transformation, Regeneration, Dealing with emotional pain.

Which I thought was pretty neat at first. But then I realized that they would just go in order for the next year. So…

November 21, 2016 – November 21, 2017: 11+21+2016=2048. 2+0+4+8=14. Temperance
November 21, 2017 – November 21, 2018: 11+21+2017= 2049. 2+0+4+9=15. The Devil

And so on…

So now I am not so sure about it. It’s not so random, or intuitive in my mind, because it would just go in order. I think it would be more interesting to just pull a card at random at the beginning of the year. Which I may do next year. I know that it will be Temperance following this method, but I may pull a card at random as well and see what I get.

Does anyone else use their year card?

Computer Building

I have been avoiding my computer. Well, my old computer. I recently purchased all the parts to build a new computer and after two weeks and some hiccups, it is complete. I still need to wipe my old hard-drive, but my computer is functional. I was really starting to dread getting on my desktop. It was soooo slow and just annoyed me with all the glitches. So I finally ponied up some dough and my brother helped me build my new beast. I love it. It’s so fast.

I still have to re-install a ton of shit, but I can do the basics, which is all I need right this second. I installed Sims 4 (a must), and Office 2016. I will be using my old hard-drive to store all my data and programs/games I don’t use that often and the new hard-drive has the programs/games on it that I am on constantly.

While I have not been posting here much I have been online. Mostly on social media. I have been trying to keep up with my reading while I was not posting. I have a few book reviews to do and one book in particular that I need to gush about. I want to get more serious about book reviewing on this blog as well as delving into my spirituality and fitness/lifestyle goals. I am considering this my half the year gone resolution. Get better at blogging.

For real this time.

Top 5 Wednesday

Characters You Are Most Like

Choose characters you are like, not characters you WANT to be like. You can also choose one character trait you share with a particular character. For example, you may not have Hermione’s bravery, but you do have her book smarts!

  1. Hermione Granger’s (Harry Potter) book smarts and wanting to learn as much as possible.
  2. Frankie from The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. Not so much for her pranks…but her feminism.
  3. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. For letting her freak flag fly.
  4. Scarlet from The Lunar Chronicles. Her strength.
  5. Anna from Why Girls Are Weird. She works in a library. I mean, hello!
