The Beginning

Hello again, everybody! I miss you!

How’s life? I hope everything’s okay with you. It’s Easter time, so happy long weekend everyone!
Oh my god, I miss talking about life. Continuing the previous post, this post I name ‘The Beginning’, as it is the real beginning for my life to be a real independent woman. Guess what? I got a job! Yeay! I am working in an international logistics company based in Jakarta and living my own life here. Yup, Jakarta, never thought that I’d meet you this soon. And for god’s sake, you’re never be easy, J-town.

Before 2017 ended, I wasted three months working as a Front Officer in a sophisticated hotel in Bintan, five star actually. It was amazing place. I met several incredible people who taught me to be tough and to have fun. Working in hospitality gave me learning to be friendly and understand people more. Then I found a passion there in myself that I like to help strangers. Talking and sharing with strangers are my favorite parts. Unfortunately, the contract just lasted for three months only and I moved on. I’d never forget the beautiful beach, the smell of wooden floor in that hotel, and of course, the most delicious birthday chocolate cake. Thank you, The Sanchaya!

Few days after, I flew to Yogyakarta to set up my graduation ceremony. I was so thank ful that I was surrounded with my family, my bestfriends, and my lover. I took my family to Prambanan temple and Gembira Loka zoo and that was soooo fun. Then my parents and my sister flew back to Tanjungpinang and went on working the usual daily life.

After the graduation, I had the time when I was so frustrated. Jobless. Yup. I woke up at the morning and opened up my laptop to register myself in several big companies’ websites where I put my hope in one of the vacancies there, from the startup companies up until civil servants’ vacancy. I was always there in every job fair. Such a job seeker indeed. I got several interviews and several failures at the same time. Yeah, it was not easy.

Though, the most conflicted moment I had was the time when I thought, ‘What I’m going to do? Where I’m going to be?’ Some of my friends had the plans already about where to find a job. Some of them decided to continue education for a better future. I was thinking about taking master degree but I knew it was not the right time. So, searching for job was the way out.  I asked for my parents to let me live in Yogyakarta in two months in purpose to find a job. I thought it was a checkmate to know nothing to do and nowhere to go except hoping for a clue. Everything was grey. I didn’t have a dream job that I should have pursued so I had no ambition at all about a particular job. I took random job that I guessed fit my profile, huft. I was all confused and stressed out about future. Up until one day, I got a call and got offered to the job I’m taking now.

So, life has been better since then. I got a clue of a future I’m going to chase and I really hope I’m on the right track. I meet wonderful new friends here that I’d like to share with you.

For you who are still in the process of searching for the clue of your future, good luck! Never stop hoping and trying until you find back your purpose in life. Happy searching!

And hey, strangers, if you live at Jakarta, let me know. I’m a rebel explorer and need to find companions J

The End

Hello, it’s me again :D

It’s the beginning of April in 2017. Almost midnight. And here I am ready to share my random thoughts. Damn I miss writing so bad! Don’t be doubt to leave this page though because it will be kinda boring :p

I think that I need to share my happiness lately in this my life journal blog. I don’t even remember the last moment I shared with you, guys. College life in 2016 was not easy for me, I guess. It might happen to you too, the last semesters students in the campus, no wonder haha.

What I want to share in this post is a brief résumé of my four years in college. Well, I think it’s 3,5 years by the way because I just ended it on March 27, yeay ^^. Officially, I got my Bachelor of Arts title on March 29, 2017. March in 2017 was epic. Even the beginning of 2017 was epic yet horrible too, hihi. At the beginning of the year, I was clueless about my final thesis and the presentation what so ever. I thought I was not ready at that time. Nonetheless, now I tell you that I am no longer a student of English Letters Department anymore. If you don’t mind, I’ll let you know a secret behind that ;)

Do you believe in writing your dreams on a paper and post it on your wall to make it happen? I did believe in that theory. At the second semester, I participated in a program of my campus to present my dreams. All the students were asked to draw their goals of life in a mindmap. Honestly, I’d like to post my mindmap of dreams here, but it’s kinda embarassing though. So, a bit descriptions maybe?

I have eight goals I’d like to achieve in my college life. Now, I’m counting that I have achieved 6 goals of all of them. Hurray! Two of them was not achieved yet, but I do believe in a second chance. Maybe I’ll go get them one day. The 6 goals are: get cumlaude title when I graduate from university, become a tourguide, work in public relation department in my campus, get into a committee in my campus, start to work in fourth or fifth semester, and finish my study in four years. Yap, those all some of the goals I had. It sounds easy cheesy, maybe. But the fact that I can reach all of them make me proud of myself :D

When I saw that mindmap, I was reminded of my goal: to finish the school in four years. Somehow, it built a strength and power to myself to immediately make it happen. So I wrote another goals in 2017 in another piece of papers that I posted on my cupboard. I wrote down each goal in thesis writing that I should have made in each month in 2017. March, however, was the target month of my thesis presentation. Ups and downs, feeling stressed, confused, angry, everything was there in the process. There was a time of being hopeless and doubt, a time when I did not really believe in my capability, a time when I was not certain of the goal that I wrote. But again, the mindmap was still there. It was like giving me voice of support ‘YOU CAN BLOODY DO IT, DEV!’. And yes, after five months of writing the thesis, I bloody did it. Yeay!

Four years of college have given me a great journey of my educational life. I thought that maybe I was just lucky of being chosen as one of the moderators in an international seminar at my campus, a tutor, or a presenter in a national lingustics seminar. I also did an unforgettable travel to Borneo and other 14 cities in Indonesia which I never thought of before. Then I realize now that maybe it was not because of luck. Maybe it’s  the pay of all hard work that I did. Plus, because of that mind map's voice :D

Indeed, all of the things that I have been through and all of the things I have right now is supported by my wonderful friends. I am really really really thankful for meeting such of those freaks that will always be there to cheer me up and support me. These four years of college would not have been this amazing without my folks. Thank you guys ;)

I think it is a splendid time to stay in Jogja and meet bunch of incredible people that teach me everything. They are really my gurus of life. Now, it’s time to figure out what’s to do next. After Jogja, can you guess which city I’ll live in? :D

To all of my readers, I’d like to encourage you to keep dreaming. To keep struggling and working hard to make it happen. To believe in yourself that you are that capable. To never listen to all of negative criticisms that let you down. To take all of the lessons in your life as a valuable experience. To be thankful and to enjoy and love every step that you take in your life. To never regret the decisions even how stupid they were. To be inspired by this story and start to make your own mindmap of dreams J

Here I post some of the pics of my college-journey-life. Happy scrolling ^^.

Andy Torres

Hello guys, how are you doin? Good, I hope!

So, I admit that this blog is such a random blog, obviously. I talk and share about anything, that I can't even categorize what kind of blog this is. But that's me. I write on this blog, not to make people to see me, but it's more to do what I like that I like sharing so much. This blog is dedicated for me myself, so I don't expect everyone in this big mass gigantic world to notice me. However, if you do like to read my post, please keep reading because I promise you that I won't stop writing. It just... being busy and, you know, I write when something just comes up in my mind, so it takes time to open this blog again and start writing.

Like I said before, this is such a random blog. Don't relate this post with the previous post because it has nothing to do with them at all. This time I'd like to share something that impresses me, a figure that I amaze since I was in high school, about 5 years ago. She is a beautiful lady who likes fashion and stuff. If you ever read my post about 7 Fashion Bloggers that I like the most you may recognize this one. She is Andy Torres. 

The first time I open her blog, I was amazed by her style of dressing. Plus she has a unique-and-pretty-angelic-face and it just makes me keep admiring her more and more. Most of the contents of her blog are her pictures of daily outfit and her experience of travelling the world. Oh my god, I am so envious with this lady, I mean, she's just so lucky that she can keep doing what she likes and getting so many benefits from it. 

Her style of fashion is simple yet special. She knows so well how to mix dress with the accessories, shoes, and bags. The style is just simple but catchy and that's what I favorite the most. She knows how to put make up on and how to express herself. Her style is never boring! She always improves herself in fashion.

But the most important thing is that she always updating her blog with all her activities and so on. I don't know why, but I always feel inspired and motivated every time I read her posts. Whenever I visit her blog, I know that my time is well spent. Anyway, she's good at sport too!

Other thing that is impressive from Andy Torres is she's also a speaker of TED. You know it well, right? After watching her video in Youtube, I know that she's just incredible. She's pretty, hardworker, and smart. She built all her success that she gets for now from zero. Her story of how he can survive in Amsterdam makes me admire her more. 

I think that's the post for today. Andy Torres is just an incredible woman. I hope she keeps doing what she loves and keeps spreading the love. You may watch her video here:

See you!
