disproving a quote

and, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
the alchemist by paulo coelho

i love paulo coelho's books! the alchemist is one of those i really loved! and when i love a book, i share my love for it to people by talking about it, lending it to them, or giving it to them on special occassions. and darn! i lost my own copy of the alchemist. since i loved it so much, i lent it to one person who lent it to a million others. i didn't know whose hand it landed anymore.

anyways, i had a very interesting day; so interesting that the events today can be used for disproving one line from the alchemist which i could never forget. the one quoted above.

scene number 1:
when i got out of the condo premises kanina, aba ang daming taxi na available at walang taong nag-aabang! gosh! kung kelan inisip ko na hindi ako mag-ta-taxi kahit late ako, saka maraming taxi sa labas ng condo! last thursday and friday, i was waiting like almost 30 minutes ng taxi near our condo. ang mga dumadaang taxi either may sakay, ayaw magpa-sakay or sasakyan ng iba na bigla na lang susulpot sa kung saan at nauunahan ako kahit nauna akong nag-abang! parang the world has conspired for me not to achieve it! :p

scene number 2:
pagdating ko sa office, as in pagdating ko right before sa man-trap door ng department namin, nakasabay ko ang aking mabait na manager (kaya nakakahiya), at ang aming mga french big bosses na kanina lang din dumating. and kasalubong ko sa door ang director ng department namin na nag-uutos ng mga memo like "not coming late". eh, 10 na kaya ako dumating! i did not want that to happen at all! the world has not conspired for me to achieve that want! :p

scene number 3:
nag-meeting ung entire financial services team at 11pm dahil dun sa dumating naming french visitors. ava! inabot kami hanggang 130 na walang break for lunch! sino ba ung may gusto na magutom lalo nat walang breakfast tulad ko??? i did not want that to happen! so badly! the world has conspired to give me hunger pangs! :p

scene number 4:
approach ang aking chekwa na team leader and chekwa na crush-crushan. aba! pinagtulungan ba naman ako tungkol sa testing ko! ang arrive nung team lead ko ay parang disappointed look. yung isa naman pa-smile-smile lang. pero parang ganun din ung sinasabi. haller! uminit yung ulo ko. alam kong namumula na yung tenga ko. napansin siguro nung team lead ko kasi bigla syang huminahon at ngumiti ngiti. tumataas na rin kasi ung boses ko eh habang sinasagot ko sila! hahaha... sa lahat, ayoko ng conflict! the world just gave me the opposite. :(

scene number 5:
walang katapusang bug finding, bug fixing at kung anik anik sa work. 11pm na ko umalis ng office. gosh! gusto ko bang mag-overtime? ha paulo? hehehe.

scene number 6:
no text. the world has conspired to block all signals! :p

hehehe...

but i still love paulo coelho's book. :) and despite these experiences today, i still believe that when i really want something, the universe will help me achieve it. :)

tingnan natin!
