Deja Vu

inspired by C-chan's post...

this post includes:
- Deja Vu definition
- Deja Vu interpretations
- Deja Vu drama in our family



Deja Vu is a well-known phenomena and in a simple way, it's the feeling that you have seen something before when you really havent.



here are 2 interpretations of the phenomena:

- the Baby sees its whole life infront of it before it was born...

- there's a certain area in the brain that links past events to sight, so it tells you if you have seen this before.
sometimes that area miss-functions and tells you: you have seen this before, even though in Reality, you havent...



for some wierd reason, my father and uncles dont believe in Deja Vu. They say that we "think" it's there cuz we watch too much movies...

i was surprised cuz i thought everyone experiences it.

they would make fun of us, the young people, for believing it.

anyway once, they asked: oh what's that thing you always have? Deja Vu ??
my Cuzn replied: yah it's something you foget about when you are older than 40 years old!

haha they werent very happy with that xD

how far would you go ??

an incident happened to me During my last year in SQU

it was a nice monday afternoon, and had to study for my Multinational Finance test.

when the sun came down, i started feeling sick...

couldnt study, couldnt even hold a book.

i though of sleeping early, waking up early n go to study, but i couldnt sleep.

then i accepted reality, im sick, im gonna go to the health center tomorrow, get my meds, and will be excused from the test.

at around 5 am, i started feeling better (too late) =O

and i was getting more sleepy by the minute, and what does that mean?? It means im gonna wake up feeling good, and so i cant go to the health center feeling good, i would be a liar,

after gathering my thoughts, i got a way out! it was crazy, might not work, but i got nothing more to loose.

I HAVE TO STAY AWAKE! if i dont sleep for around 36 hrs, i would be dead in the morning, sick.

so my plan was put to action: i need caffaine!!! this was the list of things i had:
- 2 cans of power Gold drink
- 1 can of redbull drink
- 2 coffee mugs
- 1 cappucino mug

did it work??

HELL YAH IT DID ! kept me :- till 9 am, i felt like thw rold is spinning, my stomach is making hurricanes inside.

went to the health center, got my meds, went home and slept

and had a make-up exam the next week.

it was crazy, but it worked
(i dont think im gonna do it ever again)

Doing good at work? or keep your friends?

(names in Blog are changes to keep the privacy of the people involved)

- Me
- jack: CEO
- nick: My boss
- Ron: Vice president of operations
- Mike: CEO of financial services

the Drama happened in our company last week.

Nick is my boss, he taught me ALOT, had a big part in making me who i am now.
He went to the U.S to solve some family problems.

a Rumor was out saying he's not coming back, so i went to check with the CEO, Jack, and had this conversation:

- Me: sir when is Nick coming back?

- Jack: we will figure it out later, why asking?

- Me: cuz i need him.

- Jack: why need him?

- Me: cuz he's my teacher

- Jack: i can be your teacher.

- Jack: Amarant, i have been looking at your work and analysis, your doing a really good job, i dont think we need Nick anymore.

- Me: !!!!!!!!!!!!!! =O

- Me: Sir when we start to do big stuff, im gonna need him!

- Jack: Big stuff are just small stuff gathered, if you can handle small, you can handle big.

- Me: i still think we need Nick back

- Jack (pissed off): Do you know where i got my Finance degree?!

- Me: yes sir, Harvard

- Jack: you think i cant handle this?!

- Me: no i didnt say that.

- Jack: and your work is really good, so we can work this out, take Nick out of your mind.

(left his office)


Today: Ron came from Dubai, when he saw me he was really happy and said: "ohhhhhhhhh Amarant we heard alot about you, the company has given birth to an astonishing Financial Analyst!"

"Mike come meet Amarant, he's the one Jack was talking about, the future of the company's financial development!"

I did feel flattered, and it's good to be appreciated, by the top people of the company,


I used the knowledge i got from Nick, to be this good, and this made Jack thinks we dont need him anymore.

me being good at my job made me loose my boss, my teacher, my friend.

is feeling guilty a normal thing??
