Mostly about Jakarta, and everything in between

What advice would you give to your younger self?

#DearMe, I would like to give an advice for my younger self, when I was 17 years old.

What happened when I was 17 yo?

– Lagi sibuk nyari kuliah dimana. Bingung mau ambil jurusan apa

– Sibuk belajar buat SPMB (seleksi kampus negeri), bukan buat UAN. Merasa yakin kalau UAN akan lolos makanya belajarnya buat SPMB sekalian *sombong*

– Ikut ekskul film di kampus

– Leave my introvert side behind and more open to people around me

Lalu, saran apakah yang akan kusampaikan kepada kamu yang masih 17 tahun?

#DearMe, setelah dipikir-pikir…aku gak punya saran untuk kamu. Kamu sudah menjadi dirimu sendiri, dan sudah melakukan hal-hal yang berbeda dari orang kebanyakan. Setelah diingat-ingat, you were trying so hard to get what you want, and you did it, you got what you want.

Kamu ambil jurusan non-IPA, sastra pula, dimana belum pernah ada keluarga kamu yang pernah mengambil jurusan ‘arus liar yang gak tau mau kerja apa’ sebelumnya. Lihat, apa yang terjadi padaku sekarang? Aku bisa bekerja di bidang yang luas, tak terbatas pada ilmu di perkuliahan. Semuanya, karena kamu.

Kamu yang dulu sudah membentuk aku yang sekarang. I am proud for who I am know. You were brave, unique, selfish, bookish, and I love myself now because you were doing great stuff when you were 17 year olds.

You didn’t bother to have little money and you find a way to get freelance job.

You did love movie, so you joined a movie club with wonderful friends.

Believe me, what you learnt on your 17 yo, no matter what it was, it means something. It is very useful for me now. Thank you, thank you for being yourself. I have no regret (:

Gak punya stok kata mutiara. Barusan banget malah copaste terus lupa hapus nama pengirim. Duh. Happens a lot of times. 
Dulu banget, malem takbiran itu waktunya screening nomer kontak terus kirim pesan SMS ke semua teman. Semua. Hingga kemudian tahun berikutnya gak kirim ucapan ke siapa pun kalau dia gak duluan kirim pesan *dihgitu. 
Anyway, selamat lebaran ya semua kawan Muslim kesayangan akoohhh ❤

p.s. ini kiriman darimu ya @chiciiicii? aku pinjem yaa hehe Minal aidin wal faidzin, selamat lebaran :* I could speak in Chinese, but less people believe it. A new colleagues and friends come and go and all the time I only speak in English, or yeah Indonesian language (since I live in Indonesia). 突然我想念中文. 想要跟新加坡阿姨喝咖啡 --yes I know, this is so random, but something like this always happen when you travel alone. Been there, done that. 
跟美國人請中文 -- random people in random places. Bisa-bisanya dia lancar banget. Super polite dan kayaknya gak pernah belajar makian macem 混蛋 :D
Udah gitu aja. Intinya, jadi pengen ke 台灣 lagi~ 
p.s. Finna, I miss you. Lagi pencitraan. --abis itu diomelin pramugarinya 😿
