Editor’s Note: Shina Rae is new to Los Angeles, and apparently making a series of poor decisions. Rather than continuing down that path, she downloaded the Magic 8 Ball App on her iPhone and is now using that to make up her mind for her. No … like seriously.
I LUV it. The concept of Magic 8 Ball Life is simple. Any thoughts I’m having about decisions in my life, ignore them and do what the damn ball says. Thazzzz IT!!!
I could use a little direction if I’m all wondering & analyzing, and if I’m doing that, I’m really wasting productive time. So when I allow this majestic mind maker upper to do the work for me I’m actually saving time. It’s really win/win as long as the ball keeps giving me gold! And it has been, that’s the crazy part, it’s been dead friggin on so far. How is that actually possible? I dunno?!? It’s truly mind boggling! But I find it’s easier to send it my questions, than to spend my time thinking about something I don’t have the answer to.
* when I asked the ball if it really was magic, it said. Without a doubt. Well alright then………..
So, quite happily as you might imagine, I’ve been asking the mother ball at home for help & even tonite found myself consulting the app on my phone for all life’s little mysteries. Shit’s getting serious….
Magic 8 Ball….let’s start you off easy
Question. Will these turkey empanadas be delicious?
Answer. You may rely on it.
Action. Well there was nothing to do but eat them, we’d already ordered them. I was just proving a point to a skeptical friend.
Result. Deliciousness of course. *mwuah Now for some real business….
Q. Should I take the awesome job that I was offered?
Ans. Yes, definitely
Act. Going to say yes Mon. Really was going to anyway, glad M8G confirmed tho. no need to spend a bunch of time weighing options, right?? haha
R. Let’s find out together….
Q. Should I help with the fashion show tomorrow? * asked last night
Ans. As I see it, yes.
Act. I’m going! And I was totally going to skip it. My gut was telling me to. It was also telling me to drink earlier. So how credible is my tummy now?
R. Looking forward to making great connections and hopefully getting more business out of it.
R. Pending …
Q. Will I record this song tmrw (finalllllly) * asked last night
Ans. As I see it no.
Act. well I’m still going to try to make it happen. I woke up this morning to a text saying “lemme know when you’re ready to come by the studio” Good sign for the recording, but not for M8B’s track record. Might be about to lose one here my friends.
R. I’m hoping M8B got this one wrong, bout ta go find out!
Q. Will there be time for the cute boy party tonite?
Ans. Better not tell you know.
Act. Gonna go with the flow today and see how it all shakes out.
R. I’ll let ‘cha know
So on with the experiment…. It’s totes rockin’ my socks right now. I have let go of sooooo much stress already, for realz, I can feel it in my shoulders and neck. It might just be that the conviction of a definitive answer that allows me to stop a lot of the ‘but what if’ thoughts that pop into my head when I make my own decisions, often clouding my judgement with my queries. It might be that the edict is just easy to listen to, and I like not having to think…. but whatevs. Ima end it how I started…. so far…..I LUV IT!!!
