First Rainbow In Nottingham


It was Saturday (11/05/2013). Hey, finally I returned to my old habit spending my weekend in the lab. again. It had been three weeks, I spent my weekend (Saturday and Sunday)  for social life. I thought that was too much, but I really felt so boring with my PhD life and this Saturday, gratefully I found my old version of me.

I went to the lab quite early in the morning. I arrived at around 09.00 am. Because I must wash my dirty clothes that had been three week were left on the bucket. I was extremely lazy, even for my personal stuff.

It was the first of month Rajab, two months before Ramadlan. I, Arif, and Mas Walid encouraged each other to fast for at most 27 days. So, this Saturday, we were fasting.

In the lab, I was working on my first year review report . It was slowly incrementally writing work. I was working on my questionnaire stuff as well. Indeed, it was also a tedious and not trivial works. So, what were not easy and not boring for me in this world? I did not know.

I reminded myself that it was not all about like or dislike, easy or not  easy, but it was a commitment matter. When, the dream had been set up. When, the goal had been determined. I had no choice but to succeed. Raise your hand and pray to Allah to make it happened.

It was so gloomy Saturday. The sun was disappear behind the dark cloud in the Sky. It was raining quite heavily. At the end of dusk, while I was walking to amenities building for making Ashar and Maghrib prayer, I saw a beautiful rainbow in the sky. It was the first time I saw a rainbow in Nottingham and I thought it had been too long ago I did not see it in my life.

Rainbow reminded me about a pure happiness is only after a painful. Because,  there will never be a rainbow without rain in advance. No Pain No Gain. I must strongly believe that there will always be a pure happiness at the end of painful journey.

Thank you ya Allah, for this beautiful Saturday. I love you as Always!
