Get A Job!

Between life and responsibility,.. You will need a.... Job!


Or at least that's what they're gonna say. You need a job to pay for the rent. You need a job to keep the food on the table. You need a job so you don't look like a broke.

People will running after their college graduation, to a news with tittle 'Job Vacancy' or 'We're Hiring', while.. as a matter of fact.. Most of the newly graders, are not ready for the company.

Yeah, you bet. I've work with plenty of millennials (and I am millennial my self), and I know how annoyingly lazy they are.

Whoops, no offense. Be proud if you're excluded. Somehow there's an exception for every general judgment. But face it. Millennials are lazy. Despite of what they say about saving energy, thinking and whatever. They are, fuckin lazy.


First, they were never know how it feels like to struggle for life. They have everything they need since pre-school. School until college, are a normal routine they just need to follow. No explanation, no creating new vacation, all for one : uniformity.

And  then college happened. Where they can be whoever they want, with a few rules they can always break.

Company, in the other hand, have all strict rules including when to dress up with ties and when to wear tshirts, and how to write an email even though maybe none ever tell them HOW to send a DECENT email.


So I watch this movie tonight, the title is captivating.. 'Get A Job'. Plain and simple, and help me laugh in this rough time.

You see, people don't hire because of skill. Or maybe they did, for the one or two exception. But we all know people with excellent skill and terrible attitude who left alone and forgotten in their business filled with money.

This is why they need an interview. Not to examine how well you answer the question, but how click you both will be as a coworker. Will you fit in or not, and how will you address solution to every trouble that absolutely will never end since the first day of contract assignment.


I have to take a breathe at this point.


But what if..

What if the attitude that the company want is the kind of 'servant-attitude'? And you born with this 'creative-attitude'?

What if.. You actually don't need a job! All you need is to make money once or twice, and spend it at its normal rate before you go out and make money again! Just like the villagers.

What if.. We're all trapped in the fantasy of being an important people among the group, while people actually don't care about that?

'You get a job, you happy. You don't get a job, you dead'.

Maybe not.
Maybe instead of death, you may.. Rise! You alive after quitting. The heat burns you down and wake you up. What if that is the time that you need to value your most valuable possession; family, and friends.


Maybe you dont need a job, but to create a job.
Maybe you dont need to make money, because you dont desperately need it for the world. You have everything! Air, water, food, what else?

Travel Through Time to Raijua

Menuju Raijua.. bahkan perjalanannya adalah petualangan tersendiri. Kamu harus terbang ke Kota Kupang (atau Waingapu), tapi saya memilih Kupang, lalu berlayar dengan kapal cepat selama 5-7 jam untuk menuju Pulau Sabu. Sebenarnya ada beberapa pilihan untuk ke Pulau Sabu dari Kupang, yaitu dengan naik pesawat Susi Air selama kurang lebih 55 menit dengan harga sekitar 1,3 juta, atau naik kapal Ferry lambat dengan waktu tempuh selama 12-13 jam seharga Rp 80 - 120rb per orang, atau naik kapal Ferry cepat yang berangkatnya malam dan sampai di Pulau Sabu pagi (jadi kurang lebih 8 jam juga). Kapal cepat harganya berkisar di 200rb-an, saya sendiri memilih naik kapal Cantika Express kelas VIP seharga Rp 262 ribu. Di dalam kelas VIP Kapal Express Cantika, tapi jendelanya terlalu tinggi untuk bisa duduk lihat laut Tenang, ada jaket keselamatan. Tadinya saya mau bawa sendiri karena takut menyeberang selama tujuh jam. Tapi rupanya yang harus lebih dikhawatirkan itu menyeberang dua jam

Back to my nir-faedah kinda post.

I was on page 184 when a good friend of mine texted and she suddenly poured her mental state. I was frozen for a moment before picking up my self and texted her back with some rational-encouraging words that I wish could help. This is a tough time for us, especially her, with all burden on her shoulder and the recent loss that we've experienced. It's not easy and never getting any easier, so we just have to face it now, embrace the fact that she's gone and feel the stings for a couple years. I finished two books today, one that I read from weeks ago, and one that I just read and not really have much information that I need. When I decided to go on the third book, only when I was halfway distractions started to come. Alright, I put my book aside and try to attend to the only thing I should attend: life. It's been a week since I shut myself in the house. Not going outside, let alone spoke to another human being. I feel weird doing that especially when I used to talk

Definisi orang baik, dari alm Sri Wahyuningsih Djangko

"Mims, ngana kita mo tarek jadi informasi wa.. ( Mim, kamu aku rekrut jadi bagian informasi ya)" ujarnya suatu hari. Kalimat tersebut menjadi awal dari pengalaman kelas sebelas ku yang penuh dengan kesibukan non-akademis. Berorganisasi di OP (Organisasi Pelajar, atau OSIS) sambil berjibaku dengan lomba-lomba debat bersama klub debat. Entah apa yang membuatnya menarikku sebagai anggotanya di Sekbid Informasi, tapi yang jelas ku bersyukur sekali bisa dipilih sebagai partnernya. "Yuk, torang baku pangge apa e? Dorang bahasa so baku pangge 'aner' ... ( Yuk, nama panggilan kita apa nih, anak sekbid bahasa sudah punya panggilan sendiri yaitu 'aner' )" kataku di hari yang lain jauh setelah pelantikan. Dari situ tercetus lah nama Parti alias Partner-Informasi. Aku panggil dia dengan Parti, dia panggil ku pun dengan Parti. Panggilan itu bertahan hingga dua belas tahun kemudian, sampai akhir hayatnya. *** Namanya Yayuk, orang kenalnya dengan nama Yayuk
