Weird Happiness

Weird Happiness

Sometimes I miss my childhood…

In a way where, my happiness was just so simple. Even a stupidity of false belief could bring happiness in my daily.

I remember when I was a kid, on 6th birthday my dad gave me a special present. Guess what, when other kids got a roller skate, PlayStation, or remote controller car, my dad gave me… a couple of CHICKENS. Yeah it was a rooster and a hen.

To be honest, I didn’t have a clear idea about the reason why my dad gave me a couple of chickens. At least the reason for why should it be on my birthday. Seriously, what kind of dad give his beloved son a couple of teen chickens on the special day?

Probably he wanted me to learn how to share love, or probably he saw my quality as a caretaker and visualized me to be an eminent breeder in the future.

From the way the chickens seeing each other I can say: those teen chickens were falling in love, ready to make a further commitment as a family. And I knew, I was the third wheeler in their relationship. Thanks dad, I learnt how to be a third wheeler since my early age. Pffttt…

Embrace Yourself

Embrace Yourself

When I ask you about your first love. I am silently wishing that you’re going to say your own name.

So that I know, every choice that you make is based upon your conscience. So if one day you ask me to be on your side, I know that it will be your final decision.

So before that, please embrace yourself. Be alone, eat alone, and take yourself on dates. Only then you could learn about yourself in a deeper level. Only then you could hear the whisper of your heart.

Asmara Nusantara

Lagu Asamara Nusantara dari Budi Doremi kembali menjadi soundtrack untuk program yang saya lalui kali ini. Alunan melodi yang lembut menyapa telinga selalu menjadi penenang yang ampuh saat besarnya tuntutan selama program. Dan lirik yang dalam dan sesuai dengan kondisi kami menjadikan lagu ini “sempurna” untuk dijadikan soundtrack SIYLEP 2017.

waktu itu kamu pakai baju merah
yang ku tahu aku pakai baju putih
kita bergandengan menyusuri kota
dan cinta kita seperti indonesia

Motivation

Motivation

What was your strongest reason to do something? I mean, something that crazily drives you to act or behave in a certain way. Do you still remember what was it?

Some of you might say most of the reasons are money, reward, experience, or acknowledgement. Some even say game station, food, and toys. I think there is totally nothing wrong with all of them. Sometimes I got my motivation from those reasons as well.

And sometimes people get motivation in a very mysterious way. She is “The Altair“, a girl who turns my world upside down, from unmotivated person into a man who is willing to struggle to pursue his dreams. Read more

Illogical

How she smiles at me,
that’s how I find peace within my soul.
It sounds ridiculous, and it’s always the
way it happened. The only way my mind
cannot agree with my heart.

Her smile is irresistible to me.
Just like a drug, so beautiful, so fantastic.
In the other side, it is also so dangerous,
so wild, and yet addictive. And every time
I see it, I cannot refrain to keep staring on it.
I know I should have stopped all the things
before it’s gone too far. But I just can’t.

Her existence is like drinking salt water
>while thirst devouring my tongue.
I perhaps feel a little bit better at the
beginning, a little bit less thirsty for awhile.
But it wouldn’t be so long before my tongue
agonizing more pain of thirst.

It repeated every time we met.
My brain rebels while my heart enjoys the flow.
And there are illogical things happened in between.

Love Letter

Dear Adiks,
 
I used to hate saying “I Love You” and others flirting words to a girl. Besides it sounds cliche for me, I also believe that action speaks louder than words. I used to laugh at other guys when they flirt on their girls. But do you know what? Now there are thousands similar words swarm inside my head urge to be expressed, and I bet you don’t want to hear all of those boring words. I need to make it short but how am I suppose to express all of them? While those common three words can’t even depict the magnitude nor the depth of my emotions. I want to be able to create a new metaphor that would erupt like a volcano when you read my message, so hopefully you will understand my heart condition now. Unfortunately I can’t, this is just too much, I’m not a poet who can produce romantic sentences like all women always dreamed of. Instead of being romantic, I’d prefer to illustrate my feeling in the way I treat you, the way I share my affection. But special in this occasion, please let me show my tremendous feeling by saying “I LOVE YOU MY DEAREST!!!”.
 
Deepest feeling

I think the universe is on my side
Heaven and Earth have finally aligned
Days are good and that’s the way it should be

You sprinkle star dust on my pillow case
It’s like a moonbeam brushed across my face
Nights are good and that’s the way it should be

Potongan lirik Bright dari Echosmith ini tak bosan-bosannya ku ulang beberapa hari belakangan. Suara yang merdu ditambah alunan musik yang lembut menjadi kombinasi yang pas untuk didengar, belum lagi lirik yang mengena dengan pengalaman pribadi. Sungguh kolaborasi sempurna pemicu banjirnya dophamine di otakku. Sebuah hormon yang menyebabkan rasa bahagia dan ketergantungan akan sesuatu, sering juga disebut sebagai hormon cinta.
