Amidst the Cloudy Tueday

 


One day I am a career-driven woman loaded with motivation, the other day I am a clueless soon-to-be-thirty who watch a random video clip and cry for the energy it radiates.


I watched Selena Gomez's interview the other day, and the interviewer said that Lose you to love me is one of the best songs of her for her entire career. She didn't argue and said this song is something to her. This song amazingly represents things that she's been through and not just about one particular thing her breakup. Until that day I haven't watched the clip yet. 


Now I understand how that black-and-white video means so much to her and the maker. There is always complexity behind every simple thing, right? Things could only be presented in simple ways only after the maker see the whole picture and the labyrinth of thinking that they start to point what really matters. That's the secret of simplicity; one must going thru a hell of complex trouble before simplifying things.


I cry for the lyric and her expression. (Lol ini baru tahu gue kalo video youtube bisa ada lirik kalo dinyalain subtitle, selama ini selalu buka different tab tuk search lirik. Si bodoh).


I am down for the thriving young woman, who struggles to stand on her feet despite every brick thrown at her. It's not easy, okay. We may look fine, and beautiful, and perfectly awesome, but it's a shipwreck inside our mind that needs to be fixed. But the only person who can fix it is us. No man could ever step in there and fix things.

Somebody should remake OST Cinta yang Hari ini Esok dan Seterusnya by Nirina Zubir sama Ada Cinta by Acha Irwansyah. Those songs are too good to be forgotten.

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

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

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
