Repayment from the Universe

Is it considered Karma if good things start happening to you after something really bad has? Maybe it’s just the circle of life. Either way, I think the universe is repaying me somehow.

Proof that I needed some good karma. This is the night it all went down.

I landed a sweet dog sitting job. Getting paid to play with dogs? Awesome.

Then, out of nowhere, I won our big bowlfest pool with my picks for all of the bowl games. Like legitimately beat people who actually pay attention and care about football. That ish cray. But hey, I’ve got a little more moolah in my pocket.

Yesterday I had a meeting with some local high school students. I stood in the office for a few minutes before someone acknowledged me. The office lady looked up and said “Can I help you with something, hun?” to which I replied “I’m here to meet with the student council” and she, looking surprised said, “Oh my gosh. I’m so sorry, I thought you were a student.” Well done, eye cream. Aging backwards has commenced.

And for the last thing on the karma train, our insurance claim was processed and it looks like I’ll be repurchasing computer and camera a lot sooner than I thought. Apple store, here I come! Note to all: if you’re a renter, get renters insurance.

But alas, it could not all be rainbows and butterflies. The universe has to keep things in perspective. So in the middle of a business meeting in a crowded cafe, I pulled out a folder from my bag and a tampon falls on the floor. And not in the un-obvious way that you can play it off. In the, oh gosh I-can’t-believe-that-just-happened-and-everyone-saw-it way. Touché universe. Touché.

  • When I need a tampon, I can never find it in my purse. When I am in public, a tampon always finds its way out of my purse on to the floor. I’ve had renter’s insurance ever since a friend of mine had a fire in his apartment. It was the landlord’s fault, but he had to fight for a year to get money. I bought renter’s insurance the day after that fire.

    • It’s definitely a great thing to have. It’s pretty cheap per month and totally worth it. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Yay!!! I’m so happy everything worked out with the insurance and your stuff. Such a relief!!

    • It really is. I’ve already re-purchased my camera. Even though I need my computer more, every time I went to do a blog post I was like gahh I have no pictures! So I’m looking forward to getting that in the mail in a few days.

  • I’ve been hemming and hawing on renters insurance for a while. Meaning I get a quote and never act on it. So it covered your stuff even though it wasn’t where you live or rent? Who do you go through?

    AND! That is so great. To pay for something like that and actually have it work when you need it. WOOOOOOOOO

    • With most renters insurance, all the stuff in your apartment is covered no matter where it is in the world. I was lucky in that I had a lot of receipts for things so keep that in mind next time you buy something expensive. My renters insurance is $13 a month and they just gave me $2,100 within 10 days of the theft occurring. I’d say that’s pretty dang good.

  • yay for all the good things the universe has sent you….no yay for the tampon falling on the floor in front of everyone 😛 lol

    Have a great week!!

    • Thank you! I’m really happy and thankful that my luck is turning around.

  • so happy that the insurance came through!!! say hi to the apple strore for me

    • Oh I will. Apple store, here I come! I’m literally going to walk in and repurchase the exact same thing. And yet somehow I’m oddly excited.

  • I am so so so glad you are able to get some of your things back! That is awesome! And also, I nominated you for the Liebster award. All the details are on my blog. 🙂

  • So happy about the insurance. Have a great year.
