What do I do during Election Day

Yesterday I was babbling bout a guy whom I relate to Dylan. I have to take down the post, before anything else happen. To avoid misunderstanding or overthinking. So I better swallow it to my wall.

Today, Indonesia is having their so-called democratic party. Election Day! The day that will determine the fate of this nation for the next five years. Do I vote? Nope. I -unwillingly- have to stay at home, reading, playing Hay Day, or watching Netflix. All three take turns to keep me accompany.

I can’t vote because of the system. The system that will assure every one of civilian will have their right to vote. A month ago I was struggling with my illness, walk under the heat of the sun, just to get a piece of paper that will allow me to vote. Which I fail. But I can still pray anyway.

So I decided to appear like an ignorant. Not talking about anything on quick count and start babbling about moving to Narnia instead. Which is fun, by the way. I should get a wardrobe similar to theirs.

I took a nap at eleven thirty, and wake up at two p.m. I had a really good nap, during this election day. Thanks to Mr President.

I eat from delivery service, bought my self two pcs of chicken, (fast food, because.. you know.. thats the easiest thing to consume when you bored to death), one for lunch and one for dinner. So messed up that I forgot to buy onion so I can’t cook, and too lazy to go out.

And apparently, that’s all of it. I only take one three steps out the door to grab my delivered food, and three steps back in. Other than that, I barely touched the Sun.

In conclusion, this election day happens to be MY Independence Day. And I freakin love it!

Cheers!

Prepare your self to the mass babbling about same thing after election: End Game. It won’t end that easy, pal!

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
