Listen to your inner voice

Today the sun was shining bright in Singapore. I could see it from the windows of my classroom, where I was teaching all day.

My timing, as always, is excellent.

I could also see this beautiful patch of green.

It covered one of the underground garage entrances, and was a welcome break in the glass and cement office park.

You see the stairs leading to the grass?  I wondered if people actually used them…perhaps sit in the sun on days that are a little less tropical.

So I asked.

Apparently Singapore always has weather like this. No cooler season that drops the temps below even 80 degrees.  That’s when I knew — I could never live in this island paradise.

(My hair told me so.)

In the cards

Why are you drawn to a certain career?  Is it your personality?  Your astrological sign?  Your parents’ connections?

Would you believe…a playing card?

Destiny Cards are a ‘science’ that match birth dates to each playing card in a simple deck of 52.  Each card suit and number are assigned personality traits.  Learn your Destiny Card, and you can supposedly discover the careers best suited for you.

For example, my birthday is March 28th — it’s never too late for cards and gifts, ya know — and according to the calendar, my Destiny Card is the 8 of clubs.  Here’s how they break it down:

Eight is the number of power and abundance. You enjoy attention and have special talents in the area of your suit (clubs – knowledge).  Avoid power struggles.

Clubs are creative and experience life through talking and learning. As the students of the deck, Clubs are curious, always thinking, and love to talk, read and teach. The positive club is brilliant and well-informed; the negative club can be a dishonest know-it all. Great careers for Clubs include teaching, writing, law and journalism.

Uh, snap!  That’s pretty much me on the head.  Maybe there’s more to these Destiny Cards than I first thought.

Give it a try yourself and see what you think.
