How I Met Your Mother Season 4 (The Leap Episode)
In one of the episodes from HIMYM, Ted seemed to be stressful when he was designing a restaurant. He was ordered by his client to design a restaurant, called by Rib Town, is designed like Cowboy Hat. Yaa, the shape of restaurant must be similiar to cowboy hat. Could you imagine how the building will be? Could you imagine how the difficulty of designing building like cowboy hat? On the day before his birthday, he tried to design all day in his apartment. Although, he will be having birthday on the next day. Although, his friends (Marshall, Lily, Robin, and Barney) already had prepared a suprise birthday party on the roof of their apartment. But, he was still kept working on his design until midnight. Well, I'm not gonna tell about the rest of its story.

In the end, Ted was failed to persuade his client about his design, though he have had presentation before. Poor him. After losing the job from a company, he wasn't succeed to develop his architectural design firm. As Lily said, he might have to accept a job at the University. Ted was advised by Lily to accept job as lecturer in architecture classes. In this moment, Lily told him to stop chasing what he can't get and told him to let God show what the best for him. I still remember what Lily said to Ted :
may be you won't design building, but you will design your life
Well, what Lily said above is really true. As I told you in some older posts, I've ever dreamt to be a journalist someday. Journalist has been becoming my dream since I was in high school. I've never been thinking of other jobs, unless being journalist. But, what I'm supposed to say if God wants me to be (an assistant) lecturer, like Ted? What I've got from this episode is we might have to know between God and the reality among us.
