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

The Spell of the Ocean

Vavuu atol

Someone once told me that he couldn't live far from the beach and ocean. Wherever he lives, it must be somewhere next to the beach. Preferably 10 mins walking. I didn't get that until I feel it myself. 

Holy shit! When did I fall in love with the beach?

Grew up in Malang, they don't have calm beaches. They have only southern beaches, with crazy waves and deadly ones. Never crossed my mind that I'd fall in love with beaches. Too noisy, too crowded, I don't like it. Because the beaches there are always so crowded with people. Then I moved to Bali, living practically close to the beach. Only 3 KM from Sanur. The first time I came to Sanur, I fell in love with that beach from first sight. 

I do love Seminyak beaches too, the sunsets are always crazy beautiful, but it's pretty far. For many people, Sanur may not be that special but for me it is. I can feel the energy whenever I need to recharge myself. It's always sweeping away my negative thoughts/energy. I always come here when I need to get any positive energy. 

I believe that the universe provides energies around. Of course, you can't create the energy and you can't destroy energy. That's why I pick it up when I need it. I became more sensitive about everything (not moody, it's a different thing), I absorb energy pretty quick like a sponge now. So when I feel burdened with energies that are not mine, I visit the beach. Need to release the negative ones. 

The wind, the wave crashing slowly, the blue sky, the quietness, it's all making me feel that I am blending in with nature. Make me feel at peace somehow. This beach is just so natural that it become part of my life. Not something that I'd visit only when I am on holiday kind of thing (like the beaches in Malang).

Maldives

Then I went to the Maldives to finish my Open Water Diving course. I hated it. Really. But, the moment I went down to 5 meters then 8 meters and then 10 meters going on to 12 meters swept away to 16 meters and 22 meters... I realized something new. I couldn't hear any noise but the bubbles of carbon dioxide that came out from my mouth. Blub blub blub... I hear nothing else. Nothing. Else. I didn't even terrify of going down deeper than 10 meters.

Sure, let's not forget about the current inside. That's kind of creepy somehow. Or any poisonous creatures that I won't recognize because there are a lot of them that look so innocent and cute. Also, I need to learn how to take better photos and videos underwater. Nevertheless, I fell in love with diving for reasons. 

H loves to dive because of the underwater creatures. Yea of course they are cute, unique, and awesome. But I fell in love with diving because it offers a quiet world for me. The world is so quiet, so nice, it's really a different place compared to the land. It's a whole new world for me. Complete escape said somebody to me.  It is so addictive! 

My brain tends to be so noisy. I am getting much more sensitive to the lights and sounds. While diving, the underwater world, offers me something I really need (or want). Quietness, stillness. I didn't even feel the need to plan things ahead. I really enjoyed the moment and being present while I was deep underwater. I would probably say that the ocean cast a spell on me lol. I am in love with it. 

Though I can't even swim! UGH, I'll work on it. It should be easy, right?

Now I understand what he meant. I get it now. 

So... do you like them both like I do?

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

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
