I find the rain comforting. But there is also that sad feeling that is associated to letting go. It wasn't raining when I left. But the rain has its way of making you remember the broken things.

But rain is comforting too. When it rains, I know there is something else in the world aside from the sun. The rain reminds me that every broken thing can either be fixed, or replaced by something better. And as the song goes, there's always a rainbow after the rain. Always.

I feel like my life is put on hold. Naka-Pause lang siya hanggat di ako guma-graduate. I want to volunteer tomorrow on relief operations, but I still need to work on my overdue thesis. This always happens. My thesis is always at the back of my mind when I spend my holidays or weekends doing something else. But still, I've been procrastinating a lot. 

I tried to re-assess my priorities. My masters is still a priority. If I don't get to finish my thesis, I will retake it next semester, hopefully. This should just be the option, the target is still to complete the thesis this semester once and for all. I'm almost there, and I kinda blame myself for not getting on the finish line. Maybe, it's a Coelho thing. One of my favorite quotes is from Coelho in his The Alchemist book. "And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." Very inspiring, right?  But on the same book, Coelho said this on the Mecca dream, "I'm afraid that if my dream is realized, I'll have no reason to go on living." 

I've worked on this for three long years, skipping work when I wasn't able to finish a paper. Or sacrificing my sleep when I still had to attend the class before coming in to work. Or sleep a little when I had to attend the class on a Saturday. But this previous year, I suddenly realized that I've been messing things up. I kinda dislike failing myself, and I'm doing exactly it. Blame Coelho. HAHAHA.

But right now, I'll try to get back on the game. There are still a lot of things that I want to do. I hate putting it on hold. I want to graduate ASAP. I am planning to take another masters that is related to Journalism or Creative Writing. I want to find a regular weekend volunteer work. I want to travel. I want to be relevant again.

Coelho, Coelho, Coelho. Well after all,the more famous quote says that the universe will help me achieve my dreams. Go, universe! :P

She blames the wind. It fails to close the gap between them. She blames the sun, it lacks the strength to break the ice. She blames the star, it fails to show the path on him.

But maybe, the universe is telling her something else. She stares at him. Even gravity fails her.
