Marrying with an Academics


He wasn't an Academic when he marry me. We met as a best friend long before this quite man decided to make a career of being smart people, lol. I just know, he's incredibly excited about machines. How was I supposed to know he'd being an Academic ? lol...

How Solo Living Changed My Life


Most of my growing up years were spent in a lovely town, a special place in my heart. Spent most of the best moment of my life in this little town. The place where the friends I make from childhood and the memories I share.


25 years of friendship and still counting


But now I'm not living there. 12 years ago, I'm leaving my old life. Packing my bags, bring lots of books, and jumping cheerfully on the plane that would take me from Oil City to The City of Heroes for a new step. I was really excited to live far away from my parents for the first time. Breathe, eat, and sleep in the same dorm room every single day with 3 strangers. I thought everything would be fine. But I was wrong.


Every night, I try my hardest to fall asleep. The sound of roommates laughing late into the night, their music playing, or their dirty laundry scattering the floor, aaarrrggghhh... that's so disruptive my sleeping time. Uncomfortable dorm life. I feel like there's no home for me. The first year away is hard in so many ways :(

Losing Someone but Not Losing The Feelings


The scariest feeling we'll ever have is losing a loved one. Yeah, people come and go in our lives. We definitely know that every hello makes the next goodbye. Either because we grew apart or when we passed away. That's life.


I started to understand what had just happened to my family. I know that I'm not the only one person to feel this way. Can you imagine, we lost four family member not more than a year.

Nilai Sebuah Kenangan


Membuka kembali kotak ingatan, gue baru sadar kalau ternyata selama ini tidak menyimpan benda atau barang yang punya nilai lebih untuk dikenang. Kecuali buku.


Lalu pagi ini ingatan gue beranjak pada beberapa album foto dan kamera usang milik Ayah yang bertahun-tahun tersimpan rapi di sudut lemari. Hari ini, gue kembali membukanya.


Dari Dua Teman Kecil yang Bersama Tumbuh Dewasa


Dari yang Jauh di Aberdeen Sana

By Dhini Barlian, the best kostmate ever


Bercerita tentang kenangan, gue masih ingat bagaimana dulu gue mulai berlatih membaca. Bukan dengan duduk sambil dibacakan cerita oleh Ayah. Tapi berkeliling kota bersama, berhenti di beberapa titik, hanya untuk mengeja sebuah tulisan di papan billboard pinggir jalan.

Ngobrolin Politik Asyik, Yuk...


Akhir-akhir ini, dinamika politik sedikit banyak telah mempengaruhi masyarakat luas. Tentu tidak semuanya. Banyak orang yang nyatanya lebih memilih berdiam diri. Menjauh dari hiruk pikuk dunia politik. Entah karena tidak tertarik sama sekali atau agar terhindar dari perseteruan pribadi.


Ada pula orang-orang yang memilih berdiam diri dari obrolan politik yang tidak perlu tapi tetap mengikuti perkembangannya dan hanya bersedia ngobrolin politik dengan lawan bicara yang dipercaya. Gue dan mas suami salah satunya :)





Nostalgia jaman kuliah dulu. Ada seorang teman laki-laki yang aktif dalam organisasi Islam berbasis politik sempat beberapa kali mengajak gue berdiskusi. Yaaa pasti soal politik lah ! Sementara saat itu, gue cenderung anti politik. Maklum masih bocah. Menurut gue, politik itu ruwet !
