#IdeaSwap: Do’s and Don’ts

5 Sep

A very first thing I’m gonna say here that I’m almost running out of time to blog this post. How awful my time management is…
To be honest I don’t really have plenty of free time this past few days, there are always somethings I need to do outside and the result when I got home by the end of night is always same, too exhausted to even turn on my laptop, don’t hope I still have energy left to even write a sentence or two.

But let it be, I got my tab here with me, at least I can write a short post no matter what.

Hmm, the topic is Do’s and Don’ts. Of course the first things cross my mind are a bunch of tips and a random manual to do stuffs. But since I don’t have enough time to write this post, just let me tell you about a simple one…
My very own do’s and don’ts in life.
I only have one do and one don’t, the thing that I always grasp thigh as a life guide. People said that life didn’t come up with manual, you just simply need to live it. I don’t think it is wrong, I’m kinda agree with them, life’s will get too bothersome if you over-think about it. Yet still, you need to keep some barrier in your own life. Just in case you will go out of track and make a mistake that you will regret forever… That’s when my do and don’t come in handy.

My do is; Do everything with your own way. It doesn’t mean you will ignore every other people’s suggestion. But this is your life, you’re the one who live it, so you will be the one who control it.
My don’t is; Don’t ever loose your faith. Your faith to your self, faith to your God, faith to your family, faith to your friends, and faith to your circumstances. Because only if you believe in it then it’ll somehow work to you.

See? Life is not that hard, it is only us who have too much expectation about it.
Just live it up, do everything you can all you want. Just don’t forget your own limit… and be happy.

#IdeaSwap: 1-4-3

2 Sep

Baca topik ini, hal pertama yang terlintas jelaslah lagunya Henry Lau yang lagi beken-bekennya itu. Sejujurnya pun gue otomatis beberapa kali langsung dengerin lagu itu… and I still have no idea how to develop this topic.

Jadi, ketika jaman lagu 1-4-3 itu baru keluar, gue ga ngerti apalah itu maksudnya 1-4-3, dan sama dengan apa yang orang lain lakukan, kalo ga tau maka kembalilah pada google. So I google it, then a lot of things about 1-4-3 come up. Ternyata arti dari 1-4-3 itu sederhana sekali sodara-sodara, artinya cuma: I Love You.

Or is it that simple, the I love you?
For me, the hardest and the most meaningful I love you ever said is when that sentence follow with No matter what. I love you no matter what…
That kind of I love you yang ga menuntut balasan dan tanpa alasan.

Berapa orang di dunia yang bisa kalian hadiahkan perasaan seperti itu?
Mungkin banyak dari kalian yang bakal otomatis jawab, “Orangtua gue lah, siapa lagi?” atau “Pasangan gue dong…”, atau jawaban yang lebih luar biasa lagi, “Tuhan gue lah, ga ada lagi yang lain.”
Those are a great answers and probably the most right answers too…

Gue sebenernya ngerasa ga pantes nulis soal cinta-cintaan begini. Karena gue sendiri, percaya apa ga, takut sama yang namanya cinta. Bukan, bukan karena gue jomblo dari lahir. Pada masanya, gue juga pernah ngerasain jaman pacaran sama sekian banyak cowok yang berbeda dalam waktu yang sesingkat-singkatnya.

Sepanjang hidup gue, ada dua point yang membuat gue sama sekali berubah pandangan soal cinta.
Pertama adalah ketika orangtua gue bercerai, seeing a love that I’ve been looked up all my life crumble right in front of my eyes is broken my heart even until today.
Kedua adalah ketika gue sendiri menyadari I’ve been in love for a very long time with someone I can’t choose. This someone is my best friend, and we’re still friend until now. Agak konyol sebenernya kalau diinget-inget, we were realize we’ve been developed another feeling to each other after we’ve been a friend for years, it is supposed to be a happy ending for both of us, but we ended up chose the hard way and here comes the sad part when both of us have no courage to step further to change our pure friendship into some sort of relationship.

Tentu aja dua kejadian itu udah lama berlalu, tapi apa yang merubah gue sejak itu masih bertahan hingga sekarang. Love scares me.

Yet this is the weird thing about it, those two point that change my perspective about love forever are turned up to be a wake up call for me…
Why is my parents divorce effect me that much, because I love them no matter what.
Why after being a coward and run from the possibility to have a relationship with my own best friend makes me hesitate to love again, because back at that time I love him no matter what.

Project alert!

It’s been quite some time I haven’t write any qualified post here, in fact I’m not even post anything at all. I mean, is not like I’m not blogging on purpose… it’s just simply because I’m so pissed off by how the universe somehow put me in a joke, since when writing something and posting it on my own blog can be that hard?
But the problem is over. The internet crisis, the time management thingy, and whatever reason that was here to keep me away from blogging are over. Yet too bad the damage were already happened, I supposed to have a project last month, the ruined project because… because, yeah, because this and that.

My original plan was to complete that project no matter what, even so I’m not really excited about it as the first time I announced that project here. But the blog must goes on, and I have to write.
Then a great idea — even a great save for me actually — come from my friend/best friend/partner in crime just around a couple days ago. At first she only asked for my help if I would like to give her a random topic to be written on her own blog everyday, since I know so well how her brain somehow can’t work properly in sorting what-to-write-and-what-the-title stuff every time she write, I almost said, “Yes, I can do that much for you,” but, but… this though suddenly crossed in my mind…

…If I’m about to give her that random topics everyday anyway, why we’re not making it vice-versa then? I’m going to give her the topic and she will give one too for me… Isn’t it sounds like almost genius team work?

So I just spilled that idea to her, long story short, we agree to do another collaboration project together! Yeeeiy!!
By the way, about her… I blabbed all the way down in this post about her but forget to tell you about who the hell she really is, she is one of my closest friend… and now I recalled I haven’t write about my friends in this blog at all, let me create one later then.
But about this one friend, well… how to put it so you can understand us easily, we’re so different yet so compatible at the same time. We attracted to so many different things but magically will find a similarity about it in the end. We’ve been friend for not so long time, maybe only around three or four years, but in that short time we’ve been through quite a lot.
More stories about her and my other friends will come up later, I promise I’m so going to write it!
And also, why don’t you go checking on her by yourself, click here and it will bring you to See.Think.Write, her very own blog.

Now let’s back to the project, here’s the rules of our collaboration project…

…The tag of this project is #IdeaSwap and we play it thrice a week. At the given day, we will swapping idea and use it to write or create something in our blog. There are some provision too in this challenge; First, the topic must be good enough to make us think and write something qualified. Second, each topic will have a time limit which is will force us to write in time. The main aim of this challenge is to push us to be a more productive blogger, and trust me we really want to become that.

It is quite a simple project actually, but I think it somehow a really effective way to motivate us to write. Especially since we’re doing it together, it make us feel more challenged.
I’m super excited to nailed this project, which is actually… start from today onward!

P.S. This #IdeaSwap project will only last for a month or two. This one is a September project and we will make another project again in the future. Sounds great isn’t it?

Eh, sorry… (lagi)

*Masuk blog bawa kemoceng* *Bersih-bersih sarang laba-laba*

Jadi begini…
Blog ini adalah blog yang terabaikan, kisah hidupnya dramatis, semua karena si pemilik yang gagal melulu berubah dari penulis blog musiman jadi penulis blog yang konsisten. Gue sebenernnya semacam prihatin sendiri sama kelangsungan hidup blog ini… blog gue.

Setelah sekian lama ga ngeblog, karena terlalu banyak sebab, dalam rangka ganti bulan (lagi) gue memulai (lagi) niat mulia gue buat rajin ngeblog (lagi dan lagi). Kata orang kan biasanya niat baik itu emang banyak rintangannya, mungkin itu sebabnya gue ga beres-beres menuhin janji buat jadi blogger teladan di blog sendiri — ini alesan aja sih (lagi) — gitu…
Tapi mari kita kembali mencoba, semoga ga bakal ada tulisan (lagi) dan (lagi) di posting gue nantinya.

Demikianlah permohonan maaf resmi dari gue selaku pemilik blog yang gagal, and by the way… sekian posting ke belakang, adalah hasil editan dari apa yang seharusnya jadi bagian dari 31 days of writing tag gue yang bubar jalan. Tapi, tapi… Untuk gantinya gue bakal ada another emejing project di blog ini, project apakah? Lemme’ share on my next post then…

Jadi udah beres ya acara maaf-maafannya? Gue jangan di-unfollow ya? *Fakir followers* *Haus followers*

Thrice Days In A Row

6 Aug

So….. Where should I begin?

Oh, first I’m sorry (again) for unable to keep posted for this past days. Really, wanting to write something everyday is quite a challenge. My biggest challenge is of course to manage some time in each day to write, and I can’t do it properly even until today.

Now, let me remember what I did this past few days…
On Sunday, 4th August… I’m not able to write because I went shopping with my Mom for a whole day… and when I finally home, I’m so exhausted that I just going straight to sleep and forget to blog something.
While on Monday, 5th August… Me and my Brother went to met Dad. Just FYI, I only met my Dad a several days a year after his divorce with Mom and he went to Kalimantan for work, while I’m staying at Semarang to finish my college. So I only can meet him when both of us is in Jakarta, which is rarely happen. So met up with Dad is feel sort of special and important to me. Then as usual the old routine when me, my Brother, and Dad hang out together was on… First accompany my Brother to the game-center to keep him up with his geeky-games needs. Then go to the book store where my Dad will stay at the hobbies section, my Brother will stay at the sport and games section, and I will wandering around to every section and take every books that caught my eyes (again, the do judge book based on the cover thingy) and buy it, no, technically my Dad is the one who buy it, since he’s the one who pay for it. Well, whatever. After that we going for dinner, it’s a BBQ and grill this time. Then after that we’re going to the coffee shop, order our each favorite beverages and drinking and talk until three of us get bored then go home. Yes, always the same routine anytime me and my Brother going out with Dad, but maybe if you’re in our position, that kind of silly routine is somehow so precious.

And it is bring me to today, I really have nothing to do today… So I finally make some time to write, even tough the internet crisis thingy is still disturbing me, at least I find out that the signal is slightly better when I sit at the terrace, so for now, problem solved. I still can blog even it requite a bit specific proviso.

BTW, is Lebaran day tomorrow or the day after tomorrow? Really have no idea, I think I need to watch more television… or open my twitter.

Then I think the next time I’m blog I will share my Lebaran day here, I hope it won’t turn out to be a stupid recap post like this again.
Have a good day then!

A late post

4 Aug

I’m already in Jakarta now!
This will be another short post, because its already really late here. I really try to write something here while the fact is I’m so sleepy already.

First night at home was nice, always nice to be at your own home isn’t it? But I have some big trouble here, the internet connection here is somehow went very bad… I don’t know why and it kinda put me in a worry, what should I do without my good internet connection then? Means I can use any of my gadgets properly. Phone, tab, and computer just gone suck! :(

Yet I’ll try my best to keep posting anything here, hope I will soon find a way out from this internet crisis.
