Mind and The City STARTED!

Hai. Saya mau announce kalau dalam beberapa bulan ke depan saya akan rutin menulis short story. Judulnya Mind & The City. Mind & The City awalnya hanyalah entri berisi pikiran dan pendapat tentang kota yang saya tinggali sekarang yang tujuannya merangkum narasi yang terus menerus mengalir di kepala saya sewaktu saya berkendara, ke mall, ke pantai, atau hanya sekedar belanja sayur dan ikan di pasar. Setiap tempat punya kisah di waktu yang sama dan berbeda.

Saya menciptakan Mind & The City agar saya bisa merekam memori saat tinggal di kota ini. Karena jujur saya, banyak hal dan peristiwa yang terlewatkan begitu saja tanpa bisa ada yang di tengok atau dibaca kembali. Belakangan saya sering membuka-buka folder foto milik mamah. Ada moment yang terlewati, ada tempat yang tidak terfoto, foto yang seharusnya ada, setelah saya cari berjam-jam tetap tidak ketemu. Saat otak saya berusaha untuk mengingat secara detail namun gagal, foto, tulisan, film, atau apapun itu akan sangat membantu. Entah untuk berkarya, untuk tetap hidup, untuk lebih bersyukur, untuk melanjutkan mimpi. Tapi ada sebagian orang yang membiarkan masa lalunya begitu saja, tanpa harus melupakan atau mengingat. Tidak ada kenangan berupa gambar atau apapun itu, saya yakin pasti benar ada orang-orang seperti mereka. Tidak perlu melakukan ini pun mereka tetap baik baik saja.

Tapi untuk para introvert, mengerti sekali yang saya lakukan sekarang bukanlah hal sia-sia (jika positif). I know exactly what's good for me and i'll keep doing this. Karna impian hanyalah mimpi tanpa aksi. Karna saya tidak bisa menunda lagi untuk semua hal yang sangat ingin saya lakukan selama bertahun-tahun sebelumnya. So, in the end of this kind of announcement, i hope you guys enjoy. And thanks for coming around :)

Anyway, Thanks!

Hey! Can't believe "it's already 9 of 12". I really like that phrase lately. It's already September! So many things happened earlier this year. I'm sooo blessed and accept all good or bad things. Such been forever since i posted about mind and the city. FYI, i always update something like 'this' when i feel 'i got myself'. Not in bad or good mood, just feel thankful for what's been and what i have now. Honestly, i'm too afraid to start but i'm 23, it's not necessary to be doubtful in this age. So i didn't think twice for what i like. I will start singing at cafes soon and it's heading a week since i was hire at barbershop in the city. I'm glad starting from the beginning, begin again. I'm such a mess to handle my heart but i think it's getting better now. Wanna say thanks to people around me who keeps believing and let me alive kkkkk. For who doesn't believe in me, also, thank you. I don't live up your expectations :)

I'm not going to make new wishlist down here, but just to remain me that all i have right now is enough. I always telling myself, be a good man is enough, don't ask for more and enjoy the ride. I don't know what happen but by the time, people's change. They do and they should. It's kinda hard for me to accept but i keep do introspection and open my mind widely about that. Maybe, i'm different but my friends aren't going anywhere, they're the same people, it's just the situation changed. 

By the time, i also make my list lil bit shorter than before. It short but huge. I want to save a lot then travelling. I really want to do it. Is 1 year enough ? I'm going to work and sing, play guitar, make money then i'll go to everywhere in my list. There's many things has been left or forgotten but i don't want to be it. My life should be the best one, based on my point of view. By the time, i know what i should do, what i need, what i don't need. I'm scared about starting, stand by my own 2 feets alone, getting old, but i realize it's a life. 

I want to copy something into this post. Something that change my opinion about life and humanity, since one year ago. It contains a few of quotes. Hope it will open your mind widely too. Thanks for coming here. I'm glad to have you here :)

                              The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith


People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.
