I’m not superstition, it’s only a habit. I always get up on the left side of the bed. I always like seeing the door to my bedroom from my bed so my feet are facing the door. Even in hotels, I like it that way. I put my socks on last and always on the right foot first. When I see a crooked painting or a board on a wall, I have the urge to straighten it. When I write on a paper and see some letter(s) being faint and even if it’s totally understandable, I still fill it so it looks almost perfect. I never tell my plans to anyone because I think that brings bad luck. That’s not superstition, that’s just something I do. Even if I had told my plans to someone, they still haven’t happened. But sometimes it does work. Like the graphic design in Helsinki Design School. I didn’t tell my dad I applied for it and then I did get in. I might have written it on Twitter but that doesn’t count. It’s more about telling someone outside the internet.
I do not believe having a rabbit’s tale or finding four-leaf clover will bring you good luck. I found one clover once but it didn’t do anything. In Midsummer Eve you are supposed to pick up 7 (or even 13) different wildflowers and then put them under your pillow. Then you’re supposed to dream about who you gonna marry. I’ve never tried but I don’t believe you do. The same with catching a bouquet at a wedding. Like you’re the next one to get married. Yeah right. I haven’t actually been to a wedding but I would like to try that in theory just to see the real truth. All these old superstitions are just old wife’s tails. People only do all these rituals because it’s part of a tradition. If people believe in these kind of things then let them but I do not.
Friday 13 and even the number brings bad luck to people. I’ve never had any. Bad luck happens on other days so maybe 13 is a lucky number for me. I didn’t even realise it’s Friday 13 today until looked at the calendar on my phone. It’s just another day. Numbers are just that and I don’t have a lucky number. I like 5 and 7 but their not lucky numbers. I don’t have a reason why they’re my favourite. It doesn’t define me as a person or anything. They just look good. There’s always someone who wants to analyse what number means what. For me, it doesn’t matter. I have better things to do then care about superstition. What would life be if we all would stop doing things just because you think it brings bad luck. That’s not a life, that’s being controlled by misleads. You should be your own person and not believe everything you think it’s true. Too much is always too much.
