I Thought I Hate People, but...

Sanur ... but I actually don't! That I realized when I had dinner with H and he asked me, "Do you think she's married? The seller, she looks young but not too young."  So I said, "Uhmm I don't know and I don't care."  He then said again, "Yea I know, but I am curious about people. I am curious about what they're doing in life." That's when it came to my mind, "Wait a minute! I am also curious about people, but not their personal life like marital status, how many kids they have, what religion they believe in. I am curious about what they think about things! Ah that's why I love talking to people, no matter how introvert I am but talking to people still excites me." Then we finished our big nasi goreng together.  Looking back at it, I never really like people randomly talking to me when I was in the zone... Like zoning in and out talking to myself. But actually no, maybe it was only that we didn't sync so I went &qu

Write your heart

Writing is all about heart. Nobody can force you to write, unless your proffesor who always force you to write your thesis and make it done on time. Really, nobody can force you, even when you feel you dont want to write, then you cant write.

Writing is a process. Process of thinking and the realization of that process. That process never be that simple. I realise that my writings isnt as good as others. But I also realise one thing that I love to write and show people. Like I write here that this blog may be ordinary for others but extraordinary for me. What that means? My writings might be a rubbish for others, but this is a part of my life. Part of my life that seems like a rubbish for others is something precious for me.

Yes of course this is better if you have theme for your blog. Maybe concern about politics, education or else, but mine is gado-gado. You know what gado-gado is??? That means I can write what I want. This is mine and I have fully my own right to make it as I want. If somebody says "Why dont you make money from your blog?". I can make it if I want. But this blog is my journal. A journal of my life. A journal about everything I see and I feel.

I dont expect mine have thousand of viewers in each article. I dont expect that. I just write something I see, I know, I feel, that might be informative and when people blog walking on mine they can find something they want. Sometimes there are no information about some important thing unless you experienced it (like Korean test, limit of information), and people passing by there, that already make me happy that something I write could help people. If they need further information, they can leave me email of course. But if not, then I think that what I write would be enough for them.

I wrote something and it published in local newspaper few years ago. And what I got as a feedback? I got money from university, yes because I make it. It doesnt much. But the most important feedback is people write me email and says what I wrote inspire them. I cant stop smiling that time because I know people got insipired by my writing. That makes me happy. Its not all about money, but heart and you know that what you write is useful for others.

I dont expect mine to be a trusted source for your thesis, since I dont write this to be a trusted source for thesis. I could make money from my blog, but not for this blog. This blog is pure my journal. Unless someone wanna pay me to write this blog, but still under my control.

Writing isnt that easy. If you are in the mood, then you can write 6 article in a day. But if not, you only write an article in 6 days.

You responsible for what you write. If you write something wrong and people share it, then you have to be responsible for that wrong thing. Thats why I always say writing never that easy. In this crazy world, people can sue you even you dont mean to offend but they feel offended for what you write.

Just... Write what you feel, what you see, and what you think. That is yours and you have your own control for it!

Have a nice day... it is raining in Surabaya

Mendaftar Pelatihan di Prakerja

Sanur Jadi dulu program ini diluncurkan pemerintah untuk kasih insentif orang yang di PHK atau tidak bekerja pas pandemi. Jadi ya gw tentu saja nggak punya hak tho. Sebagai orang yang nggak punya hak, ya gw nggak ikutan lah. Trus temen gw beberapa bulan lalu bilang, ikut aja soalnya ini buat yg kerja yg mau nunjang skill juga lho.  "Hah masa sih?" Yaudah pas liat oh ya bener juga, jadi gw daftar. Daftar pertama di gelombang 20 nggak lolos. Trus ya udah patah hati dah lah gausah daftar. Eh tiba-tiba minggu lalu temen gw lolos gelombang berapa gitu, lalu bilang kalau gelombang 29 udah buka. Yaudah deh ikutan aja. Eh lolos dong. Pembukaan gelombang ini termasuk cepet. Hampir tiap minggu selalu ada gelombang baru yang dibuka. Jadi daftar di gelombangnya itu selama 3 harian, pengumumannya 3 hari kemudian, lalu 3 hari kemudian udah bukaan baru. Bener-bener cepet banget. Nah temen gw yang lagi S2 nggak bisa ikutan padahal dia juga kerja sebagai pengajar. Alasannya KTP sudah terdafta

Tips Membeli Buku

Ada duitnya wkwkw! Ya maksud gw, harga buku di Indonesia bisa dibilang nggak murah terutama buku yang berbahasa asli misalnya Bahasa Inggris. Buku cetakan versi asli biasanya harganya bisa 2 kali harga buku terjemahannya, atau dua-tiga kali harga e-book. Ini e-book yang original ya, bukan yang bajakan. Kayak semacem beli di kindle atau books-nya google itu.  Kadang emang sering pengen beli fisik bukunya tapi kok harganya sampe 300ribu banget, sedangkan hasrat ingin membaca ini tinggi sekali. Nah, kalau skenario yang begini yang terjadi (dan paling sering), gw biasanya cek toko buku bekas dulu. Di Bali ada beberapa toko buku bekas yang reliable , meskipun koleksinya kita nggak akan tau ya karena ya random juga. Satu di Sanur, satu di Ubud.  Ini karena kapan hari gw udah beli bukunya Madeline yang Song of Achilles di Periplus, 200ribuan. Lalu nemuin bekasnya dengan sampul yang gw mau, cuma 25ribu. Jadi gw udah beli yang baru, beberapa hari kemudian gw ke toko buku bekas dan nemu itu. Set
