Am I Cursed?

I didn't believe in bad energies until....
  1. One Sunday I was going for a run along my favorite greenway and was feeling really good about myself
    I had ACL surgery a year ago and recovery has been ...the worst.... So I just recently started to run again
  2. Run for almost 15 minutes straight without stopping, a current personal best
  3. Stop to walk and enjoy the flowers around me while full of endorphins
  4. Step down and hear/feel something crack beneath my shoe
  5. Look down
  6. IT'S A DEAD BABY BIRD
    Dead as in already dead before I stepped on it bc it was already slightly... Moldy? Dead. Doesn't make it any better
  7. I start to almost vomit on the trail
  8. Someone stops and asks if I'm okay and I just kind of mumble and point to the bird
  9. Call my friend to talk because I cannot stop gagging and I need something to take my mind off of it
    It doesn't work. Thanks anyway, Julie
  10. Drive home doing some deep breathing exercises
  11. Turn into my apartment complex
  12. ONLY TO FIND A DEAD DEER ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD
  13. I live in a city. What is a deer doing in the city and why is it lying in the entrance to my apartment?!
  14. Finally get to my apartment and freak out to my roommate
    Apparently at first she thought someone had died. Nope, just crying, hyperventilating, 'I've seen/touched two dead animals in the past 15 minutes' Emma
  15. TWO DAYS LATER
  16. I'm kayaking on the river for work (sweet job, I know)
  17. My work friend and I are lagging behind the group because we're terrible and basically just there to have fun
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  18. So we decide we might as well be halfway decent employees by having a competition to see who can collect the most garbage
    And find the coolest object (Which was, in case you're wondering, a tire with a box turtle stuck in it that we released. But we ended up not being able to tow the tire the entire length of the river so we had to let it go. Thought that counts, right?)
  19. Anyway. I'm totally winning because Allie is focusing on big items like basketballs but I'm going for the small stuff that adds up like plastic bags and styrofoam
  20. I see a big plastic bag, the kind that clothes get shipped in, stuck on a log
  21. I paddle over and grab it but it's kind of stuck on something
  22. So I yank a little harder
  23. TURNS OUT IT WAS STUCK ON THE ROTTING BODY OF A DEAD BEAVER
  24. I have never paddled so quickly in my life
  25. THREE DEAD ANIMALS
  26. IN THREE DAYS
  27. I don't eat meat. I'm an environmentalist. Why is this happening to me?!
  28. At least the turtle is alive and my tomato plant is still kicking
    I'd knock on wood if I was superstitious. Which I might be becoming. Is this karma? Bad juju?
