It Would be Nice If, You Know, Someday

Night And Day, you are the one
Only you beneath the moon and under the sun
Whether near to me or far, It's no matter darlin', where you are
I think of you, Night And Day

Night And Day, why's it so?
That this longing for you, follows wherever I go...
In the roaring traffic's boom; In the silence of my lonely room
I think of you, Night And Day.

Night and Day, under the hide of me
There's an old, such a hungry yearning, burning inside of me
And this torment won't be through,
'Till you let me spend my life making love to you

Day and Night, Night and Day

The Hardest Jobs in the World (Edited)

Wise men don't get offended by a blog post, if you don't see your profession on the list, man, it's just a blog post.

1. Presiden Republik Indonesia
~ Good luck, we need help.

2. Gubernur DKI Jakarta
~ Karena yang di-handle adalah masalah akut seluas enam ratus enam puluh satu kilometer persegi.

3. Parenting.
~ I find being an older sister hard. Parenting must be harder. Like, way way way harder. You are responsible of how a human being will turn out to be.

*and this human being means the world to you*

*seriously, all the best*

*I hope I can be one of those nyantai ones instead of the anxious ones*

*by the way, I was an anxious older sister*

It vitally depends on the child as well. I always thought my parents are lucky to have me (haha). I made my own toys. I didn't throw tantrums. I didn't ask weird questions. I don't really eat meat (unbelievably cost-saving). But it all changed after I turned weird(er). I started to ask my parents for a trip to Italy. But yea, I've seen (MUCH MUCH) worse. My parents are so lucky to have me.

I'm lucky to have them too.

Anyway what brought this post to an edit was a realization, a rather painful one, that made me realize parenting is even harder than I thought.

My mother taught me well, very very well. I'm not very obedient, but the values sticked through thick and thin, without me realizing it.

Right now, I'm feeling like I just can't go on.

And I realize it is because of a value that I've been holding dearly.

A value that my mother planted in me, to protect me.

Parenting is really, really hard.

Even something you give to protect your child for yearsss can end up making him/her, well, I don't know. I don't even know how to describe how I feel right now.

I'm not blaming my mother, oh please, the value is not wrong.

But parenting, is really hard.

I was about to move parenting to number 1, but I oh well apparently, the people in number 1 and 2 are parents too. So I'd keep the order, and put more prayers for those two.

4. Improv/stand-up comedian
~ Creative jobs are hard, basically. Creative jobs in the post-modern world, even harder. But comedians   deserve special mention. Okay, when it comes to creative concept, we design people will always find a way, we recycle, we twist. But a joke told twice is simply not funny anymore. People most likely won't laugh twice (at least not as hard as the first time).

So please, don't record them when catching them on tour. #solidarity #yourewelcome

5. (Over)Thinker
~ Because you think about problems that are not even there.

Looking Behind

Don't throw it all away (your life), don't throw it all away.

Yours is Cobain.
Hers is Bulsara.
I think mine is Andy.

Or it's just another excuse to do something
with pretty birthday cake. //Fixation.
