bad luck or good luck?

...or maybe it doesn't have anything to do with luck at all. i mean there probably isn't such thing as 'luck' but that's just merely a word used to explain the unexplainable coincidences of good things...

last saturday, as in, the saturday that just passed, i had gone to the library in search of those book thingys that you need to read before you take the test for getting your L's. hehe...i didn't even know what the book is called... but eventually after searching the library catalogue a dozen times i managed to find the book. and while i was on my way i went past the 'bestsellers' rack which just so happened to have lian hearn's "the harsh cry of the heron" which i really want to read. but the thing is, i didn't even have my library card, well actually...i don't have one, i usually just use my mum's but my mum was at chinese school with my bro...so i thought well maybe i could get a library card, i mean, it should be that hard, right?

so i got to the "sign up for a library card" counter and had a look at the form and right at the bottom of the page it had a lil section for parents/guardians to sign for ppl under 18...well duh i'm not 18 yet....doh! ...in the end i replaced the books and left... very much disappointed...

today, i decided to go to the library again, making sure i had mum's library card (i really should get one for myself sometime) ...yet to my disappointment (again!!) ...both of the books had gone!! arghh!!! ...but right where i had found lian hearn's book last time, was a different book --> empress orchid ...ok after reading the blurb (which wasn't really much help because most of it was flowery adjectives describing the book in general) ... i decided to borrow the book anyway...

i've just finished reading the first few pages and the book doesn't seem too bad...

so..um is that good luck or bad luck ?

I agree with yimo, it does greatly depend on what you think is good and bad. =) Clearly, what's undesirable imposes "bad luck" in your mind, affecting your attitude and will. It is the same vice versa (happy outcomes) ;-)

Just enjoy the book! and try not to overwork your brain by thinking too hard...=P
