Today I went to Wong Tai Sin to pray for happiness and fortune. I picked out a fortune for myself – number 76.
My dad read the accompanying fortune. It says that I will be poor, but happy, and not to obsess over riches.
It’s interesting how the fortunes tell me what I was expecting. I did not expect riches – in fact, I may be working as an intern or even at Starbucks – and I did not expect to think about my material possessions. But I think I will be happy – I should be doing something that I love, something where I feel like I’m going somewhere.
