Okay so a strange thing has been happening to me lately, nothing major. But it seems that either the planets are aligned or some serious freakin' coincidences have occurred. But for the past couple of weeks I have, to put it bluntly, unintentionally predicted the future!
I'm sure we've all had instances where this has happened. A single stray thought crosses your mind for only a moment and then quickly discarded, only to be reminded of that thought again from another party shortly after. This has happened to be before, quite frequently back in high school. When my friends and I would talk about random stuff from video games to movies to TV shows. We would jump to topics so quickly and randomly that you would need to write it all down in order to know how one topic segued into another. What would often happen is I would bring up a scene from a TV show, likely The Simpsons at that time, into the conversation.
"Hey that reminds me of that time where Homer did this..."
And then we would segue into another topic.
Well, often times, that very episode of which I just mentioned would appear on TV within the week! And Fox rarely pushes advertisement for The Simpsons because it's already so popular so there's no real need, especially when they are reruns. So it was highly unlikely that I saw a commercial which could have put it in my mind subconsciously.
But after I left for college such things stopped happening all together. Until now, we're not talking about TV now, we're talking about some really weird things.
One thing that happened two weeks ago, I was thinking to myself that I should go give blood. I used to give blood back in high school, and I've always wanted to go back and do it again. Well the very next morning, I'll say that again, the very next morning, I get a call from the American Red Cross asking me if I was interested in giving blood. I was shocked, they haven't called me in years. I took this as a sign, maybe God was saying, "Yo dude you totally should!" So I go and gave blood. End of story.
Well just now, I went to bed, lights off, computer off. I was trying to get some sleep, listenig to podcasts and music on my iPod as I normally do, when the most peculiar thought creeped into my head. "I wonder when my GoDaddy domain name will come up for renewal?"
I got the domain name for my webcomic, but have never used it. There's a two year long ownership of GoDaddy domains, in which you will be asked to renew it. I have forgotten about that domain since I first bought it.
But for no real reason, I got up from the bed and turned on my computer and opened up my email, where sure enough I had just gotten an email from GoDaddy about renewing my domain. wow. Minutes after I had thought of it, I get an email? And I check my email all the time, many times a day. So my inbox was empty when I went to bed.
What the hell is going on? Have you guys had strange instances where something has happened after you thought of it, but had no reason to think of it in the first place?
