So I Still Have 7 Years to Go


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
  • enough money within her control to move out
and rent a place of her own, even if she never wants to or needs to.
  • something perfect to wear if the employer, or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour.
  • a youth she’s content to leave behind.
  • a past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to
retelling it in her old age.
  • a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra.
  • one friend who always makes her laugh… and one who lets her cry.
  • a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family.
  • eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal, that will make her guests feel honored.
  • a feeling of control over her destiny.
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW
  • how to fall in love without losing herself.
  • how to quit a job, break up with a lover, and confront a friend, without ruining the friendship.
  • when to try harder… and when to walk away.
  • that she can’t change the length of her calves,
the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents..
  • that her childhood may not have been perfect, but its over.
  • what she would and wouldn’t do for love or more.
  • how to live alone… even if she doesn’t like it.
  • whom she can trust,
whom she can’t,
and why she shouldn’t take it personally.
  • where to go, be it to her best friend’s kitchen table, or a charming inn in the woods, when her soul needs soothing.
  • what she can and can’t accomplish in a day…
a month…and a year…



Girls, contrary to popular belief, Mary Angelou didn’t write this. It’s Pamela Redmond Satran, a Glamour Magazine columnist, who got it published in 1997, the article's titled What Every Woman Should Know by the Time She's 30.

To You, with Love, and Apologies.


An Open Letter, to The One.


God, you’re funny. Brilliantly funny.

Ok so, I’m gonna start (for how many times I’ve lost count) by saying sorry. Sorry for getting angry at You earlier in the year. I didn’t admit that but yea – my ungrateful, irritating attitudes towards You were the evidences that I was. 

I’m sorry for the things I did and what I didn’t do.
Sorry for neglecting You, in a way.
Sorry for repeating the same mistakes.
Sorry for getting frustrated, for forgetting You’re always there.
For getting scared, for forgetting You’ll never leave me.
Sorry for acting like I don’t have You.

And for the…I don’t know how many times already, You prove to me again: You are always The Guy with plans. And your plans are perfect.

Thank You for bringing me back to You, closer than ever before.
And after all you’re God. And You’re my Father.

Cool Stuff Just Happened. You Should Go and Check Them Out.


THE RAID.

 What can I say guys, really. Wait it was...
*Amazing!*
*Sensational!*
*Phenomenal!*

Well, the script could be refined.
The acting could be more convincing.
But anyway, the film's still
*Amazing!*
*Sensational!*
*Phenomenal!*


Another ArtScience Museum treat,
Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal
I'm honestly not a huge Warhol fan,
but this is something a graphic designer should see. 
It was complete, worth the trip, worth the money:
Marilyn, Campbell, you name it, they're all can be found there.


Juve 4 - 0 Roma
*photo from Juventus.com, duh.
It was a splendid weekend in the soccerworld,
3 leagues, 3 bigmatches, the highlight would be
Juve's victory againts Roma, and we're number one!

I successfully woke up on time to witness the triumph,
to see my uncles again, to see Pirlo in pink, to see Totti on the bench,
to see the squad's new faces, to see Nedved visiting Juventus Arena.

This season's scudetto will be ours,
and it would veraciously be the 30th, not 28th.



Ayah &Ibu
I adore my parents,
and I love them even more when they're being so Indonesian!


Kimi' 1st Podium of the Season! (Bahrain GP)

"Yayyyyyyy!"
Can't wait to act like a groupie again this coming September!

Sakiiiit


But feelings can't be ignored, no matter how unjust or ungrateful they seem.”
~Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl



"Udah jangan dipikirin." ---> Konon, menurut pakar psikologi kata "jangan" itu tidak efektif, malah berbahaya.

"Udah jangan dirasa-rasain." ---> Sama aja, mbak. Merasakan sesuatu itu bukan sebuah pilihan, somemore.



Sulit jadi saya. Udah pemikir, perasa lagi. Apalagi kalo dua itu lagi gak sepakat. Pengin banget punya saklar yg bisa turn off 2-2nya. Udah sering dibilangin (termasuk dibilangin diri sendiri) kalo feeling itu deceiving, feeling itu gak penting, feelings are for the weak. Tapi gimana. Gimanaaa. Ah tapi, ternyata Tuhan emang sayang sama gw, He even cares about my feelings, yang katanya gak penting ituh :(



Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you
~1 Peter 5:7
