Make Your Dreams A Reality

Good advice?

Once upon a time I went to my favorite super-authentic Chinese restaurant, Panda Express. 
When I say "super-authentic" I mean "I'm not really sure what this is but I'm pretty sure it's not Chinese and I'm VERY sure that it is DELICIOUS."
If you've ever been to Panda Express, then you know that with every meal comes a cute little fortune cookie.  (and if you haven't been to Panda, seriously what are you doing with your life). 
On this particular day, this was my fortune:

This would be a pretty average, generic, applies-to-anybody kind of feel-good fortune, except for one problem. What if I don't want to make my dreams a reality? I know it probably meant that I should shoot for the great things I want to accomplish in my life, etc. But all I could think about was my dream from the night before. I don't usually remember dreams, so this one really stood out.

I was at Target with my friend's older sister. A super creepy guy who worked there was following us around. He attacked my friend's sister but backed off when the store manager saw him. The manager didn't do anything about it. I tried to say "Hey! This is unacceptable! He should be fired!" but the manager just shrugged and walked away. 

I know that's not exactly the most horrific dream, but it was unsettling. And I definitely don't want to make it a reality. Please, fortune cookie writers, be a little bit considerate. Some things don't apply to everyone after all. 


  1. I can almost hear the exact voice you would use to say Hey this is unacceptable. I miss you.

  2. My last fortune cookie came ridiculously true. It was really weird. But like the meal I got with it, though it tasted delicious a few days later I felt sick and seriously regretted it... Ask Kaela for the whole story haha.

  3. You know what I hate? When it's not even a fortune, it's like, stupid advice from a "Life Coach" (i.e. "Make your dreams a reality")!

    And then there are the ones that don't even make sense. Here's the one in my purse at the moment: "Watch your relations with other people carefully are reserved." Huh?
