Looking at Karma

In episode 25 of Looking Back, Merit reveals that she has too much time on her hands. She probably isn’t supposed to be using social media to spy on family but that never stopped her before.

I’ve been taking classes online. It is a diversion. I probably will never use any of it but it is nice to know that I’m educated in the ways and why-fors of real estate having passed my realtor’s licensing exam. I’m also a certificate holder for Computer Technology, Medical Billing and Coding, Cyber Security, Website Design, Hospitality Management, Criminal Justice, Accounting, Asset Protection, and my favorite, Veterinary Assisting. It doesn’t cost too much money and I’ve got lots of free time. The next class in Finance starts in 3 more weeks. I’m hoping to add that certificate to my collection. The last class I took in Hospitality Management required familiarity with social media sites like Yelp, Open Table, and Trip Adviser. I couldn’t help myself. I ended up wasting time looking at reviews on Craig’s List, Facebook, and Pinterest. I even looked up some old acquaintances, just to see what they were up to now days. I discovered that my brother is getting another divorce. I found out that my Aunt Eve died. It was amusing to see the photos of old classmates. They looked so old. Not that I haven’t aged, however I have all my own teeth and am not in a wheelchair! The real thrill was lurking and discovering that at least 3 of my chief tormentors were struggling with obesity, addiction, and cancer. Not that I wished any of those things on them but it is nice to see karma has finally caught up to them. Karma catches everyone in the end. I’m sure karma will bite me in the ass someday too. Just not today.

  1. hmm. I can’t agree with Merit’s view that obesity, addiction, and cancer are Karma.
    But, as usual, an interesting addition to your continuing story. Apparently it’s Wednesday.


  2. For some reason, when I make comments using my phone, they don’t appear. This is the second time. I refuse to judge Merit for her online snooping, and that’s all I’m going to say about that! I do wonder where she got the money for all those online courses, though.


    1. Same here. I was making comments to Michel and they weren’t going through and he wondered why I wasn’t reading his posts or commenting! I was devastated and I now will read posts from my phone but I only comment on the computer! Ha! The internet was made for lurking and snooping!! As for Merit’s money. She invested wisely, lived frugally, and currently has very few expenses. So she spends her money on what she wants…


  3. Yes, we reap what we sow. I’m trying to keep that in mind. 😉
    Though I’m not totally sure I agree with Merit’s idea of ‘karma’ being obesity, cancer, etc I think especially obesity and addition are a person’s choices. Cancer? Well, I’ll think on that one. 😉
