Last year, as we all remember vividly (right), was the end of the world as predicted by the Mayan Calendar. Somehow we all managed to survive that and spend another year on the space marble we call Earth. I don’t know about you guys, but my 2013 was pretty damn eventful, in good ways. Not going to try to ignore my near meltdowns due to school, and I won’t say there won’t be more of those to come (oh stay tuned), but for the most part 2013 treated me well.
Last year I started a new tradition, which is that the new year is a time to have your fortune read so you know what to expect in the upcoming year, and I went a looked up the Chinese signs for 2013, and I wanted to see just how close the predictions got to being true. You know, cause hindsight it golden.
Well BILL HAJDU over at Astrology.com got the closest to what might have actually happened last year. He predicted (vaguely):
“Snake is the Yin to last year’s Dragon Yang. That said, Snake does not settle for mediocrity, either. We’re likely to see significant developments in the area of science and technology this year. Research and development are apt to flourish. his is a Water year as well, the element most closely associated with education and research, making 2013 a very special year for scientists and scholars.”
I mean, there was a lot of great science in 2013, and I did get to Neil De Grasse Tyson live, so…
This year Bill says:
“You could either experience a lot of lucky breaks, or at the very least, luck could soften the blows. In other words, bad luck will occur at a minimum — if at all. You can probably take more chances than you normally do. Strike out in new directions with more confidence. Make a major change in your life.
One caution: Horse energy is sometimes about fools rushing in where wise men fear to tread. Yes, luck is with you, but you still need to apply due diligence, use a little common sense and pick the best times to act.”
Good way to cover all your bases Bill. So this year I’m apparently a Lucky Fool! Hope that bodes well for the blog.
Lets see, this year let’s set some reasonable goals for the blog shall we? Last year I tried to do too much, this year I’m just going to try to only add one thing, a podcast!
I’ve had so much fun on the CRM Archaeology Podcast that I want to try doing my own. I’ve gotten some great stuff from my friend ArchaeoSoup and I am really looking forward to trying out this new medium.
Really, beyond that we’re going to keep plugging ahead with the blog. We’ve got some great women to meet in the Women in Archaeology section and we’re still trying to figure out Who Discovered America First.
