Keeping Up

Life has been so...well, I can't find any word to describe my life ever since I entered college. I surely enjoy my life and all the activities, but I have one problem. Big problem; I can't keep up with 'some' things. College life pushed me to do everything base on my own will, without any force from second or third party and definitely without any 'watch dog' A.K.A teacher like in high school. The problem level of laziness has increased sky high. Well, okay, my own mistake then -___-
But the worst problem is the social one; I barely keep up with my old friends. I earlier mentioned nine of my closest friends and I missed a lot of chances to hang out with them. Not that I don't want and this has nothing to do with my increasing laziness. It just simply that the chances always appeared either in a wrong time or in a wrong condition. Almost every time the chances appeared...boom, I was ill or I have to go to Dojo to deal with my Kohai. Oh, well, okay, ever since I passed the Aikido exam last December I've become one of the Senpai at UI Dojo and unfortunately also a secretary. It means that I have responsibility toward the Dojo and the Kohai which increased every month...And since my senior A.K.A previous Senpai are rather lazy and irresponsible toward the task...well, I feel like I have to at least do my job as good as I can. Yeah, I know I can just walk out, pretend like I don't care but I do care.
And now I have a dilemma between my old friends and my responsibility. Hell, you can say that I'm overrated this problem but I love Aikido. And no, it is not because of my boyfriend (who happen to be one of my Senpai. And I really hate it when people said that I go practice because of him. Urgh, talk to my hand!). Nope, I love Aikido even before I date him.
And I love my friends too....
By I should admit that I'm not good at keeping up with distance people....
Seriously, if I could do something to prove that I'm sorry about my stupid absent on every occasion then I'll do it. The problem is (Duh, why I keep adding up problems?) I'm not good at that kind of thing. I'm not good at initiative thingy, or apologize thingy. This is the only way that crossed my mind. I'm not even sure that any of them would read this but seriously, I'm so sorry...


There, I mean it. With all my heart. 
Please, please, please, for Aza, Ariani, Debby, Endah, Bulan, Kenna, Fanny and Sarri, I'm so sorry :( Yeah, this post is shit, I know, this post won't cut it but well, I really don't know what else to do. I think I need more time to divide my time between college, friends, practice and such. I really am sorry.

BBQ Night Blast!

May 2011, Pasha's House

It has been a really long time since the last time I met these guys. We graduated from the same Junior High and it's kind of awesome that we still keep in touch like this. Last Saturday we decided to hang out together again and made a BBQ party. To be honest, the BBQ was awful :p really. The meats were good but the grilled chickens were total failure...But it didn't matter for us. We met again, we gathered again and we laughed together again, those were what mattered. 

 This was when we were trying to light up the BBQ. Seriously, we used a lot of Gas to light up the fire and at the end we spent most of our time hovering or sitting around the flaming BBQ pan, watched the fire and chatted. Pasha's cooker tried to help and she was really tough. Really, she touch the burning coal with bare hands!!! Duh! 



Shab, Risyad and Adhi

The party ended around 9PM and Diki took the girls home including me :) I should say that was such a memorable night. I really wish that next time we had this kind of thing Anna and Kevin could join us. Come you Aussie dweller, come back to Indonesia!!!
Oh, plus Muti and Andhika. Please guys, things kind of thing won't happen twice!!

Rainy Day on the Street

On my way back after a long day of work on TVRI. The street was totally crowded and it was rainy. Oh, Love the rain!!!
These are some pictures that I took on my way back. I know I'm not a photographer and these aren't good but at least I know I could show you what I saw through my cell-phone camera ;)

Mural Painting "Lounge"

Carving for new bedroom!!!

Actually this is years old carving...I bought the paint already, had the design on my mind and had those DIY bed addition on my mind. But, well, noted, ON MY MIND. I have no will to make it real....
So, what am I going to write this time? Some tips and links that will help you remodel your bedroom. Selected from some websites on the internet.

This one I got from



    • 1
      Paint. Painting is one of the cheapest ways to update a room, and it takes minimal effort. Pick a color that suits you and paint one wall, the entire room or the ceiling. Get creative. Blues and greens are great for bedroom design because they give a pacifying feeling.
    • 2
      Lamps. Lamps are another cheap remodel alternative because they can create a glow of warmth in a room without much effort or expense. Place lamps or lighting in the corners of the bedroom, next to the bed, or in the corners of a vanity mirror. Experimenting with varying heights, wattage, and lamp designs will give you lots of decorating options.
    • 3
      Sheets and duvets. Here is another place to let your creative light shine; do a mini remodel of your bedroom by purchasing a new sheet or duvet set that refreshes the entire room. Add a couple of fun throw pillows and it might just look like a professional interior designer has spruced up your room!
    • 4
      Add a touch of art. To give your remodel the ultimate personal touch, buy a blank canvas and get to painting. Maybe you aren't Picasso, but painting your own artwork for your bedroom can end up with you getting exactly the decoration you want, and save you money.
    • 5
      Go green. Adding a couple of plants to your bedroom can brighten the room and serve as a great interior decorating touch. Try a hanging basket of ivy in the corner or a couple of bamboo plants; both are easy to tend to and grow quickly.

      Then, let me share some links that would lead you to the master: (bedroom remodel, ect.)

Okay, there, enjoy the trip :)

Future Ideas

Okay, so I don't know why but I feel like I want to talk about houses. House, for me, isn't just a place to go back after school or after work. House, for me, should be a place where the bond of family get tighter and a place where we as human could feel comfort and safe the most. That, of course, won't happen until we get comfortable and desirable house. I didn't say cheap and I didn't say expensive; I said comfortable and desirable which price will be depend on our taste and budget.

That house above was a house that I found on the Internet. Simple, modern and looks cozy. More important for me I has a lot of windows. Why windows? I don't even know. I just remembered that I once talked with my friend that I really love a house with big windows that would show me a lot of pine trees. So, over all, my future house should have a lot of big windows. A lot like this one:
Look at those yellow lights. That kind of light really help to make a cozy and warm environment. I'm not study architecture but I at least know what's good. :)

Move to the interior. Since I love simplicity then the interior would be the simple and modern one though I can't deny that I also love Mediteranian and Classic one. Classic interior has it own charm. It consist of pastel colors and Victorian furnish that would look really good with yellow lighting. This kind of design has a lot of details on it which if we can't put it right it would make our house look really crowded. 

Above is one of an interior design with Victorian or Classic design. See? Put it right and it would look really nice. Different with modern one which brought forward the simplicity. Modern interior design usually had rectangular shapes or oval, circle, the point is SIMPLICITY. In modern interior design the usage of a furnish is count more than its beauty or art. Though, this kind of design had its own beauty and charm.
The color choice basically falls on white, black, grey or any other main colors. The furnish looks simple, right? Combined with big clear glass and minimum decoration this kind of design would make our house look cleaner, bigger and quiet.

So, what if we combine both of Modern and Classic design? It would make the contemporary one. It has both of Classic and Modern sense on it which I love the most. That would be my choice. The picture on the right side is the Modern interior is the example of Contemporary Interior design I picked from the Internet. See? It's simple yet had its own complexity and the sense of nature. The art isn't left behind but everything on it still be useful.

This design could also be apply on bedroom. This design would be a really nice choice since we don't need a lot of effort to tidy it up. Well, in condition you're not that kind of put-it-where ever- you-like type of person ;) these are some choices I took from the Internet related to bedroom.

I am consciously picked those bedroom designs that dominated with earth colors. Why? Because I got this philosophy that nature could bring peace and relaxing our minds. On those pictures above which obviously contained earth colors I somehow could imagine that with putting those colors on our bed room we would feel like we're being close to the nature. This color choice is somehow perfect for city dweller like me. Beside, earth colors come along really well with yellow lightning which I love the most.

Well, I think that's all I can write about my ideas. I know, I might sound like a smartass but please note this; I JUST WANT TO SPEAK UP MY MIND. You don't agree? keep it to yourself because I don't care about your whine :p

Random Personality Test

I just had this on-line Personality Test. The test results are divided into four categories; Guardian, Artisans, Liberal and Rational. I found it really fun and well, could be useful if only I know how to use it :p

So, my test result is;
Guardians are the cornerstone of society, for they are the temperament given to serving and preserving our most important social institutions. Guardians have natural talent in managing goods and services--from supervision to maintenance and supply -- and they use all their skills to keep things running smoothly in their families, communities, schools, churches, hospitals, and businesses.
Guardians can have a lot of fun with their friends, but they are quite serious about their duties and responsibilities. Guardians take pride in being dependable and trustworthy; if there's a job to be done, they can be counted on to put their shoulder to the wheel. Guardians also believe in law and order, and sometimes worry that respect for authority, even a fundamental sense of right and wrong, is being lost. Perhaps this is why Guardians honor customs and traditions so strongly -- they are familiar patterns that help bring stability to our modern, fast-paced world.
Practical and down-to-earth, Guardians believe in following the rules and cooperating with others. They are not very comfortable winging it or blazing new trails; working steadily within the system is the Guardian way, for in the long run loyalty, discipline, and teamwork get the job done right. Guardians are meticulous about schedules and have a sharp eye for proper procedures. They are cautious about change, even though they know that change can be healthy for an institution. Better to go slowly, they say, and look before you leap.
Guardians make up as much as 40 to 45 percent of the population, and a good thing, because they usually end up doing all the indispensable but thankless jobs everyone else takes for granted.

Guardians at Work
As a Guardian, you enjoy working as a valued member of a team, whether you are leading it or following a credible leader. You like to work with people who carry their weight. You appreciate having clear-cut responsibilities and being recognized for your dedication and achievements. Your natural traits are those that employers have traditionally valued - and that successful companies still respect. You are responsible and loyal to an organization once you've signed on.

You are most comfortable when your life is structured. As a result you usually prefer a workplace that lets you create a routine you can settle into. Because you are dependable and exacting, your colleagues and customers rely on your work. Your ideal job offers you a clear chain of command, and lets you progress through a hierarchy based on your meeting expectations.  

As someone who really into Psychology, this kind of test is really exciting :p
