A Fresh Start

Writing again after so many months.

So, lots of things had happened. Ups and down. Good and bad. Laugh and tears. From having a job to unemployed. From having a good friend to lost that person. And along with that journey, what makes me sad is, somehow I lost myself.

I mean, I was trying my best find out what was it? How could that happen? I even try to make it right. Not really succeed and eventually, for the 1st time in life, I became a bitter person. Feels like I hate everything and everyone. And I hated myself for that. It was tiring, exhausting. I can’t stand it anymore.

Luckily,  these past few days (and for the next few days) my cell phone is dead. It suddenly died one night and when I took it the repairman, they need to replace one of its spare parts which will take some time. This situation really gives me time to think and talk to myself. A serious conversation I believe. And I decided to let it go. I need to stop fixing things. Sometimes it just meant to be broken. I need to stop hoping that my friendship with that person will be okay. It takes two to tango. No matter how hard I try if no response, so what’s the use? Sometimes, there are people who just not meant to stay for a long time in my life.

As said in above picture, I’m on a journey to detox all negativity in me. I need to cut that infection in my wounded heart before it spread and killing me softly. I need to stop myself from turning into someone I don’t even like. I can’t and surely don’t have the right to change others. But I definitely can change myself.

And you… if you never hear anything from me again, it simply because I don’t want us to hurt each other in any possible way. It’s better to remember you as a sweet memory, a smile from the past rather than to talk to you as a stranger. Be happy always.

{Life List}: A Non-Fiction Workshop

Let me start it with a nice quote on pinterest.

learn

 

I love learning and get very excited when ever I had an opportunity to learn something new -especially for free. For me, it doesn’t matter if at the end I didn’t like it. Its the willingness to learn and the effort to enjoy the process that matters.

Last Saturday, I joined a short workshop on non-fiction writing. A friend of mine informed me about the workshop and I just signed up. No hesitation at all. I even forgot that I had it on my life list. Turned out that I wrote about Joining a writing course there. Its amazing how universe brought me to fill my forgotten list. I just feel the need of going out and having new experience.

So.. the workshop was held in Millenia Book Store -never been there before-, a not so big book store (comparing to Gramedia) but somehow I like the air of the store itself. The speaker/mentor of the event was Said Al-Khudry aka. @profesorcintaid, the author of ‘Pacaran Mulu, Kapan Putusnya??’. I honestly haven’t read the book but at least I already have it now. Will definitely read it after finish reading my on -going one.

The workshop was fun and exciting. We watched  this video before starting the workshop (I recommend you to watch it). I even got a notebook for giving my opinion about it. Then we talked about the definition of non-fiction itself before we go deeper into material on premise, writer’s block and writing techniques. What make it more fun is that we had a chance to practice. Yup. We practiced how to create a premise, how to write a paragraph from 3 words given and basic knowledge on Mind Mapping. I remember that I have read a book about Mind Mapping from Tony Buzan years ago. Seems that I have to read it again 😉

As in my personal opinion, above all the given material, I got new knowledge on how a script turn into a book -since the moderator was from Mizan Publishing who explain a lot about it. I learnt that every one (actually) has the probability to be a writer. No matter their background is. The important is, to be consistent in what they’re doing. I think almost every successful person done it. Consistent.

In that case I will take a baby step for myself. I challenge myself to (at least) post twice a week on March 2017. *fingercrossed

Hmm.. is it the right time to set another goal??

Just Enjoy ..

Grey cloud hanging. Rain pouring from the sky while people walk in a hurry. Hoping that no raindrop will reach them. People and not me. No need to hurry, I can’t stop it anyway. Rain will keep pouring no matter how fast I try to walk.

So here I am. Standing .. breathing .. enjoying the cold air.

No need to hurry …

Just enjoy it.

New Home for My Craft

Finally  have a place for my craft story.

http://www.cubbyknot.id

Totally happy with it and literally makes me wanna create more -so I could post something there-

Crafting is like a therapy for me. A shelter where I can escape from the chaotic world. Just stay there, playing with all the bright colors of yarn, tiny button and all the pretty thing.

Please stop by once in a while …
