Don’t you just love coincidences? I see life as a.. hmm, something that tries to cheer you up if you’re feeling sad. Actually, some call it “god”, but I just call it good karma, or “spirit of the world”. If you’re having a really bad day, you might not be in the mood to see the signs. But usually, if you keep your senses open, life is just full of wonderful surprises and coincidences. Sort of like the feeling you get when you realize that a co-worker knows your childhood friend really well – the “it’s a small world” effect. Yesterday morning I was on my way to work, tired, but happy that I’d have the next few days off. From the bus window I watched cars passing by and one of those cars had a license plate that had the letters YFC on it. Doesn’t say much? To me it does! YFC was the “Yellow Fried Chickenz” tour of Gackt, which I went to this past summer. Somehow the license plate instantly cheered me up and kept me happy throughout the day.
Then, when I got home after work, there was a postcard and a package waiting for me. The postcard was from a dear friend of mine who is currently in France as an exchange student. She wished me happy birthday and apologized that the congratulations came so late (my birthday was a month ago). The package was from my old penpal from Tokyo. Guess what was inside it! A greeting card and a birthday present!
Again, what a coinsidence it is, that two people, who have no link to each other (except me) happened to send me a late birthday wish, both which I received on the exact same day. Like my friend wrote in the card – “You’re lucky because now you can celebrate your birthday twice. Today being the 2nd day!”
Today I had a friend come over and we rented Precious, which I think was a really interesting and tragic movie. Now I’m off to my parents’ house to spend the evening there. I’ve got a day off tomorrow and am going to get my hair cut & dyed so.. nothing better to do tonight than to go and watch tv with my mom & dad ;)
Are you waiting for some album to come out? I’m thinking about maybe getting Taylor Swift‘s latest album “Speak Now”. I also can’t wait for My Chemical Romance‘s and Josh Groban‘s new albums. Both being released in November. How about you?
