I recently went to see a fortune teller named Marwan. Three of my colleagues visited him the week before me, on a referral from our pixel elf, May.

My colleagues were amazed and sort of freaked out by how accurate – and specific he was, without any input from them at all. So I couldn’t pass it up.

I had a sort of double motive for going. My life feels very up-in-the-air right now. My time on this project is coming to an end, and I’ll be returning to the US in a few weeks. I wanted to see what Marwan would say about this moment in my life.

I also thought it would be a bit of fun.

I told him literally nothing about myself, and he started talking right away about how I was shortly going to return home after an extended period away – about eight months, he said.


He said I had mixed feelings about returning home, and that my life felt transient and very up-in-the-air at the moment.


He said he thought I’d recently met a girl – Japanese maybe. He said it was too early to tell whether this Japanese girl would become significant in my life. He said he thought she liked me, but mainly she liked the sex. 🙂

He said that sometime in the next six months I’d be entertaining job offers I’d recieve through some contacts in Japan. He didn’t say for sure whether he thought I’d end up working there, but in any case, he said Japan would be a good place for me.

He talked about a “court case” I was involved in. He said it’s good that this court case went smoothly and was coming to a close. I had no idea what he could possibly be talking about, but then he said it had to do with a woman I’d been with for a long time. A divorce maybe, he said.


He talked about my parents and my brother. He said my father’s health was unpredictable right now – that he’d require hospitalization for something in the near future. He said he didn’t think it would be serious.

He talked about how my father and my brother had a big falling out recently, and he said it was mostly because of the woman my father is married to. Not your mother, he said.

He said that within the next year, I’d be partnering with some people to buy real estate – on the third floor of a building, facing the sea, a half hour outside San Francisco. He said I wouldn’t live there. I’d buy it strictly as an investment.

He said that I’d left a weaker self – and a lot of drama – behind about eight months ago, when I left my country.

He said that I tend to follow my emotions too much and I need to make sure I use my brain more.

But, he said, I need to be fearless.
