Winds of change

December 25th, 2007 (Christmas day!)

  1. "Someone has their eye on me" (translated from my mom's good-old Arabic expressions!)--this person is very interested in me. It is easy to get over-excited but then might lose interest. Must be careful to take it slow but remain determined. Must find a good balance.
  2. Light: there is a strong sense of light/goodness/well-being coming my way. There may be money involved (always good too!). I am looking at it and staring at it and contemplateing it (it = light) and not sure how to reach it. I will meet someone who will show and advise me.
  3. Professionally: Someone will tell me something that pleases me. Relates to my professional life but not necessarily something related to my current job.
  4. "Proposal." Not THAT kind. I've heard about this opportunity indirectly. Will jumpstart phase of change. Must study the proposal and weight the pros and cons before making decisions.
  5. 2008: will be a year of CHANGE (that word again...)--changes will be taking place in more than one area of my life. (Note: CHANGE not necessarily positive or negative; but certainly different.)
  6. Holding a CARD (metaphorical, not poker!) in my hand: I will use this to bluff and get what I want. Will not have to ever show my "card". (Nice!)

Cryptic. Intriguing. Focus on change. Awaiting it impatiently :)


December 9th, 2007

  1. Revolution: I go through excitement about something but now it's gone away--this had worried me earlier, but now it is disappearing. Related to something professional rather than personal.
  2. Very loyal friend: this person sometimes annoys me and gets on my nerves. Now he/she is confused but I will not know how to help or what to do. We will boh avoid the subject.
  3. NEWS: 2 pieces-
    (a) Big & Important: will find out in the upcoming few days. I will be surprised. This news is related directly to me. I will be happy :) (--Note: coincided with my Dec. trip to Ammanland.)
    (b) Small & Sweet: the news will come from afar (geographically). About someone else. Will also make me happy :) [Happiness; always good]
  4. Race: between me and another person who is "stronger" and has a "further reach". Despite being "smaller or weaker", I am catching up to them. The overall tone is good.
  5. Guy (recurring from before?): has strong feelings towards me. Really cares for me. Not sure about my feelings towards him. Relying on time to clear it up and establish my true feelings. Some complications to think about. There is a girl involved who I will discuss this with--she is the only person that I will be truly honest with. She unintentionally reveals my hesitancy to him. He is not perturbed and continues to have strong feelings towards me. The outcome is unclear but there is a sense of attachment already.
  6. I will hear about someone who is seriously sick. They are not getting better. This person is not related (socially or family-wise) to me.

There is a recurring theme of racing, romantic confusion and change. Ah...only time will tell!

Spinning 180º

October 28th, 2007 (3:10pm)
(Disclaimer: slightly on the philosophical side; thank you mother!)
  1. I am sitting at the summit--everything around me appears lower than me. I am standing alone. There are ideas that I want to pursue and fulfill. There is an obstacle--a dark cloud above me which I cannot see. I won't realise this until I am "there". I am perhaps choosing not to get there.
  2. Male presence: On some level, I see "perfection" in him--it is not clear in what sense. Despite this, I cannot get along with him because we are not on the same page; we have very different ways of thinking. This person will remain in my life for some time until another girl "shows up" (not romantically involved) and changes the way I feel towards him.
  3. Ladder: I am climbing and there is no-one else climbing with me. Climbing very slowly. If/when someone decides to start climbing too, I will have to move faster.
  4. There is going to be a 180º change in my life (yes exciting...ish!) after meeting someone who I eventually fall in love with. (Yes, love.) This guy appears virtually from nowhere; we had met before but I did not consider that we may be suited. He pursues me for a short period of time and the feelings develop into mutuality. THIS IS GOING TO CHANGE MY LIFE. I will be "embracing" him (best translation from Arabic that I could muster...) There will be one small incident that will disappoint me slightly but it will not matter because I will change my thoughts because of this person. This person is a "foreigner" in the geographic sense. Socially, we are from different circles and environment but sharing a strong link. The key word is CHANGE.
  5. There is a male whose name starts with the letter B: this person keeps going in and out of my life. He provides me with attention on a constant basis. This is not necesarily a romantic interest. Even though I enjoy the attention somewhat, I am uninterested and it doesn't really affect me.
  6. BEWARE: Female friend--I confide in her regularly. She is, in fact, relaying my mesages to the people which are involved in our discussions. Possibly, but not necessarily, a professional acquaintance.

On the whole, quite interesting. Some things which may be playing out and others which, obscure and vague, mean very little to me as of yet.

As with all things, only time will tell.

(If you posess any information pertaining to the above or any other of my readings, do not hesitate to share...)

Key thoughts

September 2nd, 2007

  1. KEY: will receive an "offer" in appx. 2 months. Will be v confused. Offer will be far beyond my expectations. I will be surprised. Will discuss this offer with only one person who is standing behind me and pushing me to take it. My thoughts are: "Leave me alone to think!" Note: There are 2 other people who have their eye on the same offer.
  2. A close and loyal friend may have to leave and move somewhere far. I will be upset for a while. This person doesn't have a choice and must go.
  3. I will have a discussion with a close female friend--this is the first time we discuss the topic. We will both be releived because the subject was broached. The change post-chat will be in her life not mine.
  4. I will be given an assignment that I'd like to do my own way but at the same time will feel very reluctant to due to reactions from others. I will work hard to complete it anyway, but not with all my heart.
  5. I am going to finally obtain something I have been wanting--material object.

Updates to follow soon. Keep visiting.

Note to self: Must keep eyes open for keys, vague assignments and disappearing friends.

coffee cups and mysterious men

I've decided to take this blog in a slightly newer direction. A direction which I am hoping will provide me with a little direction of my own, and help me make decisions, evaluate my actions and just overall provide me with some sort of whimiscal structure in life. Since my choice of outfit could be just as influential as my choice of a future job, I will take the equally nondescript path of analyzing my coffee cups to foretell, foreshadow and forewarn my future. Or perhaps merely to entertain. Either way, I hope for it to provide some sort of structure and help me make more "well-thought out" decisions and assist me in justifying the truly very me-like insane ones.

The posts which follow are coffee cup readings as seen by my dear mother who humors me and enlightens me whenever my poor mind is in disarray with "good news" and the occasional mysterious man...

The first dates back to September 2nd 2007. The most recent is just last week--January 26th 2008. I'll update the reading with possible events which could match up as they happen, so check back for possible "explanations" as my life unfolds.

DISCLAIMER: coffee contains caffeine which causes cellulite, high blood pressure, apetite suppression, weight loss and insomnia, often keeping you up all night to wonder the meaning of your life. I will only take responsibility for the last of these side-effects.

Enjoy your coffee :)
