Make the skinny looser

Hey, dudes!
Last week was a crazy week, so I couldn't keep posting in a week. Well, actually there are lots of things that I really want to share with you. And one of them is about doing something new. I dare you to try something new or else that you don't ever want to try before. It could be anything, like starting to wake up earlier in the morning and move your body to do with sports you like, go to the museum instead of mall in the weekend, cut off your hair as short as Emma Watson's and many more..   

So did I, dared myself to wear something more "loose" than ever. Lately I have been thinking to ease up on wearing skinny jeans and legging. Contrariwise, make myself usual with harem pants, not-really-skinny pants, maxi dress and long skirt. 
Honestly, I don't really like wearing them before. Because I thought, they will make me look more mature than usual (you can call like "ibu-ibu"). Then, I have never broken the habit.

But I realize, as a muslimah, or hijaber, I should wearing them in lieu of skinny jeans and legging. My thought has been changed as I saw there are many young hijabers out there wearing maxi dress, skirt and other baggy stuffs, and they look absolutely stunning on those stuffs. Since then, there is a little bit shame inside me. Deep down in my brain I can hear a little voice calling out, "they can wear it on the right way, so, why don't you?"  

Usually I don't care with other people's eyes, talks and thoughts when they see me wearing legging or tights. But now, I'm thinking twice for it. And I'm about to start wearing something baggy now.

I'm looking at myself when I'm wearing it. Whoaa. This baggy stuff fitted on me. Wholly. Nothing wrong with that. I should wearing it more often since now! Buuutttt, I won't make any promise if I never wear legging or tights anymore. Nopeee. I will still keep them in my closet and wear them sometimes. But, I promise I will wear them precisely and wisely. Wish me luck, okay!

| emptiness | guilt flutters | dusky | rush | boredom | jaded |
| envious | wicked | elsewhere | feeble | blur | sick | imperfect | death |

aku akan pergi ke tempat yang lain dari sini
ke waktu yang bukan hari ini
melihat apa yang akan terjadi
akan kutemui wajah wajah asing tanah ini
ku akan pergi saat hujan reda
walaupun lama pasti reda juga
tangga pelangi akan segera tiba

P.S : Thanks to you, the one who makes me love this song which actually not really my type of music.

You have to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad. Love what you got, remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget. Learn from your mistakes but never regret. People change and things go wrong, but remember, life goes on.

I’m feeling so good
I knew I would
Been taking care of myself
Like I should
‘Cause not one thing
Can bring me down
Nothing in this world gonna turn me round…

It's already March! Oh NO.

I woke up this morning, and as usual, got my Blackberry to turn off the alarm. As I look at the clock, my eyes also got the date of today. Tuesday, March 1. It's our sixth times on 1! Errrr, okay, trying not to sound too excited, because our time seems really short if compared with others, aren't we? Actually, it is not the point of this post. What am I going to talk about is, IT'S ALREADY MARCH! and it indicates that I only have 4 months left to finish my final thesis if I want to graduate on July, or 8 months if I want October. Fiuuhhh. Still, I've got stuck on it. And suddenly, a wall of panic hits me today. Can I?

Honestly, I'm not one of those who really ambitious to graduate quickly. I mean, it's not a guarantee for me, you, us and other people to get an appropriate job if we graduate faster than others. There are many factors beside the graduation itself. GPA, networking, language skills, experience, luck and many other things beyond our mind. Furthermore, there will always be something that press you after graduated. Now, I'm drowning under pressure of the question like "kapan lulus, Zu?" and after I graduated, there will be some questions about "udah dapat kerja belum?" or "kapan S2? udah dapat beasiswa?". And after that, "nikah kapan?", and forth and forth and forth. See? graduation really doesn't mean everything. There will be some more big things come ahead.        

Some of my friends, my sister, brother and even my parents say to me that I shouldn't worry about my final thesis. Eeven I graduate longer than others, in my age which is two years younger than my other friends, it still okay for me. If I could have a thought like that, may I will not worry and afraid as I feel right now. But, it ain't easy as it seems. There like lots of little things telling me I have to finish this as soon as possible. Every time I see the progress of other people who is one step ahead from me, I become more stress. But then, everyone probably feels like that, huh? The other thing is, I just want to make all of these things done. Then make my parents proud of me, see the other things in life, living in a new environment, habit , choose the other paths that really into me, expand mind, create more things and forth. 

P.S : For everyone who also doing the final thesis, let's fight together! just have some fun with it.  best of luck to us :)
