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 (:
