Terbukalah

I remembered a paragraph from one of my Bahasa Indonesia quizzes at school. It said:
Keluargamu adalah dua kubu yang terpisah. Kau dan ibumu, adikmu dan ayahmu. Namun, kalian tetap baik-baik saja. Kalian telah terbiasa hidup seperti itu. Terbiasa dengan pertengkaran-pertengkaran kecil yang selesai dengan sendirinya. Manusia memang seperti itu, kataku. Kita hidup karena terbiasa. Kita membenci kemacetan jalan raya tapi tetap menerimanya. Karena itu bagian hidup kita. Kau terdiam seolah mengiyakan.
I can't help myself but to read the rest of the story. It's been months, but yesterday while I was waiting for my friend, I decided to google it, and found the story. The beginning is amazing, but I couldn't breathe when I got to the end. It disappointed me, of how things can change within a paragraph. I literally had trouble breathing when I knew the ending. Happy reading, my fellow lovers. Have fun dying.

Guilty Pleasures

PH | SARAS

On Thursday I had my three ways conference, and received my report for term 1. Alhamdulillah my grades are above average, therefore I wouldn't have to worry about them. After three ways was over, Saras and I picked up Yasminn and headed to the supermarket to buy ingredients for our dessert, and some snacks for picnic. And sudden thriller movie marathon.

I've been posting most things on Snapchat lately, and here are some things you missed.







It's bloody hot right now in Jakarta, because it's changing to rainy season. Cannot wait for rainy season! My favourite time of the year, yippee!

Dirty hands, dirty minds

It's the second week of October, and I have eight home works and projects to full fill by the end of the week. I am cramping my thoughts and sacrificing my sleeping hours just to get some things done. What makes it even worse is that underneath the computer table, flies so many mosquitoes at night, and I have to spray mosquito repellent every night. My legs are covered with mosquito kisses, which I loathe. I dislike mosquitoes very, very much. Also, my nose has been bleeding on and off for the past few days, as well as my blood pressure going up and down. Oh, school. You are very terrible, yet so useful to me, and I just cannot wait to be done with you.

There are some busyness that I enjoy, but this is not one of them. 

God bless King Tang of Shang, who has 'invented' ice cream, a natural remedy for stress, fatigue, and heartbreak. Thank you for sharing its existence around the globe. 

Also, God bless teenage icons such as Tavi and Lorde. It's nice to know that finally adolescents are heard by the grown ups. Both of them basically speaks for the whole youth, as well as being an icon for us. I recently bought ELLE October, and Lorde's on the cover. The interview she did was inspiring. Although, it did contain a lot of bullshit, and an I forgot my wallet, ID, and phone. But then again, she is only 17. The word bullshit's like, 90 percent of our vocabulary.

There's this quote from Frankie Magazine issue 50 that made me smile. And nod, because it's true, and I wish I could get my hands dirty right now.

Getting our hands as dirty as our minds are most of the time

Off the Spot

After being a secretary in both Junior and Senior High's Student Council, this time, I'm officially done.  The election of the 2014-2015 student council was done today, and the inauguration will be held probably on Monday. My friends and the junior high who are in the student council kept saying, "Oh congratulations to our downgrade!" I laughed, but then I realised they still have the chance to be senior high's student council. Meanwhile for me... Well, I don't think I'm going to be a part of the 'student council' in university later on. So I'm official done. Like for realz.

My dear friend Saras and Chloudya was chosen as the new Senior High Pilar Student Council president & vice president. A huge-ass congratulations to the both of them! I still have eight months to feel their leadership.

Regarding that it's Halloween... Well to be honest I haven't prepared anything for this month whoopsie daisy, except for an interview I'm constantly waiting to pop up in my email. I've been listening to a lot of San Cisco lately. They have this amazing music that works in both sunny and rainy days.




Have a nice weekend, lovers.

October


It's October! My favourite months of the year has official begin! (October through January are my favourite months). I've always been fascinated by October upwards because 1. That means Halloween is only 30 days away. 2. Rainy season is coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (but that means there will be flood everywhere sigh). 3. The layers of clothing I will be wearing! 4. Rainy days playlists on 8tracks THEY ARE GOLD. 5. My birthday gets closer. 6. Christmas is around the corner, and I have always loved Christmas vibes. 7. NEW YEAR. 

For this Halloween, I've made a promise to my friend that I will be dressing up as Princess Leia (God bless this 31st is on a Friday, which means I get to dress up AT SCHOOL), and my brother as Luke Skywalker. Also, if I have passed mid-October, that means I have literally passed one of the most booked weeks of my entire adolescence life. My tasks are piling up before the 3 Ways Conference, and it's making me a little bit insane. 

This month, the blog is going to be filled with Halloween-inspired posts, as well as an interview with a person who claims to have hang out with 1990s Leonardo DiCaprio and friends every day. It will be a great rainy season, and I hope you guys are excited about it as well.

Being Human

Today my class talked about concepts and facts. The more you think about it, the more you realise that most of the things that exist are just concepts. Every individuals have different perspectives on what is fact and what is concept, but yeah. Most of the things that exist came from our minds.

What happens when you don't throw your trash in the correct place:


I’m so glad this post exists. I took ecology in high school and apparently a lot of animals are attracted to the smell of cigarettes and they eat them whenever they can find them. Sometimes they’ll even wander onto roads at night if they smell one and they’ll get hit by cars doing so. And they can’t digest them. The cigarettes just sit in their stomachs until they run out of space and then they starve because they always feel full. I don’t understand why people can’t just put their cigarettes out and then toss them in the trash bin or keep them in an ashtray in their cars until they get home. Is it really that hard?
