the number 13 freaked me out last year when I started seeing it everywhere, every time I looked at a clock the number 13 was there or I did quick math and found they added up to 13, every time I would play mtg with my friends I would somehow end up with 13/31 life before I won shortly after, every movie I’ve seen since then I’ve found it either in the date in the movie the time on a clock the age of someone I never fail to find it. it used to scare me to the point I would get shakes because it happened so frequently. I’ve since then made it my lucky number and still notice it seemingly without trying but I don’t search for it anymore, the number just finds me I guess. It’s weird, but what’s life without mystery, there’s no more land to discover so we look elsewhere.
