Heart Attack

Assalamu'alaykum

Been very hectic today. So many deadlines yet so little time (yes! The procrastinator me is screaming out loud here!!). Pulang kerja langsung ketiduran dan gak sempet masak buat buka. Jadinya cuma makan melon 2 potong plus green tea (entah mau ngurusin badan yang mana nih secara saya sudah kurus rupa begini). Bahkan tarawih tadi sempet nyanyi tuh perut - dengan kencangnya. Pura-pura tidak mengklaim diri sebagai sumber suara dengan tidak menunjukkan aksi saltink atau masam-mesem. Akhirnya barusan baru makan nasi - selamat datang gaya hidup makan sebelum tidur!

By the way saya belum habis pikir dengan sistem hormon wanita. Mengapa ada saja satu kalinya setiap bulan dimana hormon kami tidak stabil dan mood sangat-sangat jelek dan penyakit hati gampang hinggap? Dengki lah, sirik lah, su'udzon lah. Well, ini Ramadhan lho nooon. Hormon gak bisa disuruh diem apa ya. *pake nyalahin hormon* Masalahnya setiap hal yang nyelekit dan berpotensi menyinggung tiba-tiba ukurannya diperbesar berkali-kali lipat. Sakit hati menimbulkan penyakit hati. Kayak orang yang makan makanan enak tidak bergizi, atau ngerokok, atau stress gitu, yang akhirnya bisa dapet sakit jantung (heart attack, yes!). Analoginya persis seperti itu. Astagfirulloh. Makanya, saat-saat seperti ini beristigfar itu kerasa banget perlunya. Huhuhu.

There's always once in a month that I can angry as angry bird and I don't need any reasons to be it.

Ramadhan in Padang

Assalamu'alaykum..

(now I realize that I HARDLY say salam except on the right column of this blog as my introduction. my bad!)

So tomorrow is the beginning of Ramadhan 1434 H. I'm excited and sad at the same time. Excited yeah, because well, it's Ramadhan! Sad because this is the second Ramadhan without me gathered with my family. :( Last year I was on my on-the-job-training session and there were my friends around me. I was in Jakarta back then. This year? I'm in Padang and alone. I live in this residence with everyone is employed in the company I worked for. They are all MEN. Right now I'm still acquaintances with the wives (of course I have to socialize more with the wives). I hope because of this Ramadhan coming, our bond will become stronger and better than acquaintances. There is always a person or two with judgy personality or insecurity issue but I'm sure if we choose the right approach, we're gonna blend easily.
This illustration made for the sample as I applied for an illustration job. For Asma Nadia! She saw this picture and replied my application letter but as I told her my domicile, she apparently shut the application down. :)

Guess what?

I Hate Quotes

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car.
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme.
I hate it, I hate the way you're always right.
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it when you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call.
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.


Yes, yes. It's a direct quote from the teenage-romance-comedy drama in the 90s with title "10 Things I Hate About You" that has been my favorite drama since I first saw it in junior high school (it was year 2000 something actually, but not really too late I guess). This "I hate(s) quotes" are really implicating my earlier life while I was still a teenager and somehow cute to be heard. Well, I have this guilty pleasure that in my age (I'm 23, remember?) I still love to watch teenage drama - especially school drama - that involves girls romance story stuff. Mean Girls, Bring It On(s) and Step Up(s) are my absolute favorite.
The Stratford sisters of the "10 Things I Hate About You".

Okay, I'm embarrassed.
