My Life These Days

Hi everyone! I know it's been a while since I literally said hi to you(s) and posted something personal here. Although I'm constantly trying to update my blog, I become more cautious to share my personal life here on the blog. The thing is, I don't know who's going to read it. In the early days of blogging, I thought I could share everything in my life. I put up pictures of myself and people around me, I wrote my feelings so obviously (especially when I was down), I talked about my childhood and other personal things. Somehow, as a reader of other bloggers, I found myself enjoying read their personal lives. I feel like really connected with them through the stories and photographs that they have shared. And most of the time, it feels good when I read those bloggers who share positive life. While some readers of my blog also wrote to say how much they appreciated reading my words and seeing my pictures, and I can feel the same happiness when I knew it.

Somewhere along the line though, I finally decided to not share too much personal writing and photograph publicly. So, I ended up posted something that I want other people to know without too much involving personal information. That is also the reason why I often posted something more "general" like pictures of places, traveling stories and outfits. Is it something that really common in our society? We only show something that we want other people to know, but to what extent do we want them to know is different for everyone. Some people share their morning to night activities, others complain about their family problems, and some only give a bit of their lives. And I prefer the last one. So, if my blog seems so happy and filled with fanciness all the time, then those are the things I want to share with you :)


However, I'll give you a few hints about my life lately. Since moving back to my hometown, I've been working in a university which based in Depok; can't wait to finish decorating my apartment (actually it's all done except for the rooms); so nervous yet excited to pursue another big dream of mine; have a side project on something that I'm really passionate about; can hardly hardly hardly wait to meet October and December; and the last ones are here, my current mood boosters.

Paper Towns
Shame on me, I haven't read John Green's bestselling novel but already watched the film. So I pick this book to taste his imagination and writing as my sister's recommendation. Even though I haven't finished it yet, but I can safely say this book is worth reading! It's been just two weeks since I bought it and now I almost finish reading it (well, for a slow reader like myself, finishing a book within a month is quite impressive!). 


Traveling Frame
I have this idea since years ago to put all the things that I bought and kept after traveling to a place: put them into frames and hang them on the wall, or make a traveling scrapbook. Basically, I just want to put all the memories into something that will not break easily. It's such an easy task, really, but I always had great excuses to procrastinate it. 


Favorite Songs
Good music never fails to make me happy. Lately I've been listening a lot to Ed Sheeran and the soundtrack of The Fault In Our Stars. I love almost every tracks on these two albums, but my favorite ones on Ed Sheeran's are"One", "Photograph", and "Tenerife Sea". While "Strange Things Will Happen", "Long Way Down" and  "Let Me In" are the songs that I never get bored of listening to on TFIOS's album. 


Lovely Outerwears
I'm a real sucker for outerwears, especially the blazers. If you come to my room, you can see that most of the clothes I have are outerwears. Needles to say, I'm so happy that after a long time, I finally bought another blazer. And no longer after I bought it one of my good friends gave me this silver sequin blazer. I couldn't be happier!


(Re)Flexy
I bought this little baby from a flea market in Yogyakarta when I went there two months ago. But I haven't "played" with it, not even once! Do blame me, huh? So today is a good time to change the batteries and the film to play with Flexy!


Picnic
Sometimes, as a person with a very limited tolerance for living in a crowded big city like Jakarta, lying down somewhere quiet and peaceful is a simple thing that brings more happiness than watching movie, shopping or even traveling to the surrounding cities. I found myself feeling thankful that I had perfect companion, perfect time, perfect place and, of course, a perfect picnic :)
