Guess what?
I just had a vision…. Hahaha! I’m kidding! I’m not Raven (from “That So Raven” for those of u who knows the Disney Channel TV Series)
No. I just understood one thing.

Well, lemme explain the situation like this…
I’m in Jakarta right now… typing this with my sister’s laptop (the used to be mine one…)

This weekend is the third weekend I come to Jakarta in a row.
My first weekend, I came here on purpose to go to Jakarta International Jazz Festival. And I did go there. And had loads of fun…
My second weekend, I came here on purpose to go to the MTV Staying Alive Music Summit. And I did go there. Even though I was kinda disappointed coz it was really crowded and the crowd was uncontrollable and I didn’t get a chance to see Maliq n d’essentials live, I still saw some great performance…
My third weekend, I came here on purpose to go to the Traxkustik. The jazz thing held by MTV Trax. And I didn’t go there. I was in the eX, Plaza Indonesia until 5.30 pm and the thing started at 6pm, but I had to go home… My sister is sick and we choose to go home…

The thing is… I really wanted to go to the Traxkustik thingy… I really wanted to watch Tompi live.
But then I sacrifice all that coz my sister didn’t look like she had any power to be kept awake…
And what I wanna share with y’all is actually how I felt…

Well, I thought, “Oh my God! I really wanted to watch Tompi!” but then I thought, “What’s really important about Tompi? My sister’s gonna have her exam on Tuesday and she’s gotta be healthy for that… I don’t really wanna sacrifice that… besides, there’s another chance that I’m gonna watch Tompi again in Bandung on the 23rd. So, nothing to lose, really…”
So we did go home.
On our way, my mom asked, “Is it really okay that we cancel this watching Tompi thing? Coz u actually came here for that…”
I could hardly say anything. It took me sometime to swallow my saliva before I could actually say anything. Plus the pretending-clearing-my-throat thing. I finally said, “It’s alright…Do I have any other option anyway?”
And my mom didn’t give any reply back…
So we got into our car. And I started thinking.
“Mmm… aren’t I supposed to be mad? Aren’t I supposed to be sad? Aren’t I supposed to keep my hard feeling???”
I actually did try to be mad. To be sad. To have hard feeling to my mom, or sister, or whoever.
But, amazingly, I couldn’t. In fact, I can’t.
I can’t be mad to anyone coz I didn’t get to watch Tompi live. I can’t be sad. I don’t have any hard feeling to anyone coz I didn’t actually watch Tompi.
And I thought, is this a process to be an actual adult?
I mean, I know that to be an adult means I’m not allowed to act childish anymore. And what happened to me this afternoon was one of those processes.
I kinda understand that I can’t get anything that I want exactly at a time that I want it. There’s a process for everything…
And being adult means understanding that u don’t always get what u want…

Well… have fun being an adult!
Nice quote: “Being grown up isn’t half as fun as growing up” (The Ataris – In This Diary)

high school never ends...

before I write anything else, I want u to read a song's lyrics...
this is the new song from one of my favorite punk-rock band, Bowling For Soup...

Bowling For Soup - High School Never Ends

Four years, you think for sure
That's all you've got to endure

All the total dicks, all the stuckup chicks
So superficial, so immature
But then when you graduate
You take a look around and you say, hey! wait!
This is the same as where I just came from
I thought it was over
Aw, that's just great

The whole damn world is just as obsessed
With who's the best dressed and who's having sex
Who's got the money, who gets the hunnies
Who's kinda cute and who's just a mess

And you still don't have the right look
And you don't have the right friends
Nothing changes but the faces, the names, and the trends
High school never ends

Check out the popular kids
You'll never guess what Jessica did
How did Mary-Kate lose all that weight?
And Katie had a baby, so I guess Tom's straight
And the only thing that matters
Is climbing up that social ladder
Still care about your hair and the car you drive
Doesn't matter if you're 16 or 35
Reese Witherspoon, she's the prom queen
Bill Gates, captain of the chess team
Jack Black, the clown
Brad Pitt, the quarterback
Seen it all before, I want my money back!

The whole damn world is just as obsessed
With who's the best dressed and who's having sex
Who's in the club and who's on the drugs
Who's throwing up before they digest

And you still don't have the right look
And you don't have the right friends
And you still listen to the same shit you did back then
High school never ends

The whole damn world is just as obsessed
With who's the best dressed and who's having sex
Who's got the money, who gets the hunnies
Who's kinda cute, and who's just a mess

And I still don't have the right look
And I still have the same three friends
And I'm pretty much the same as I was back then
High school never ends
High school never ends
High school never ends
Here we go again


next, these are some comments from random people about this song...
quite funny... read on!

ZOE, THOUGH THIS TUNE SOUNDS FUNNY,AND,SURELY IT IS QUITE AMUSING, STILL SADLY,IT'S PRETTY ACCURATE. SPEAKING FROM A BIT OF EXPERIENCE(I'M 45yy), I FELT THE NEED TO WRITE AND ATTEMPT TO SOMEHOW ENCOURAGE HIGH-SCHOOLERS NOT TO GET TOO STRESSED OUT,OR, OVERLY UPSET WITH ALL THE NONSENSE THAT LIFE THROWS AT YOU,BUT INSTEAD, DEVELOP AND KEEP A PERSONAL MORAL & ETHICS CODE THAT IS HEALTHY & WHOLESOME,WHICH WILL GUIDE YOU IN WHATEVER STAGE OF LIFE FIND YOURSELF IN.
PS - ONLY YOUR FATHER(GOD) AND HIS WORD(THE BIBLE) CAN KEEP YOU AT PEACE IN THIS CRAZY,CONFUSED WORLD THAT KNOWS NO PEACE. NO JESUS - NO PEACE..............KNOW JESUS - KNOW PEACE

THOUGH I DIDN'T RATE IT - SINCE IT'S NEW AND I ONLY HEARD IT ONCE - THIS SONG IS RIGHT ON THE MONEY!

Most People... Put sad depressing songs for graduation... Screw that.. THis is what I want played at MY Graduation!

alrite, I should explain sumthin here...
red words: words which express exactly what I think and feel...
I mean, I got 4 years of high school.... and I always think, "God! I've had enough!"
but now, here I am... one of the students in a university and still feel like I'm in a high school condition...
blue words: the actual words that came up to my mind when I started university.....
purple words: the things that actually happens in the world today...

chocolate words: the words I don't agree with... I HAVE the right friends... I always do...

I'll show you my right friends right now...

love them... glad to be w/ them...

well, see, in my beloved university (hold it... I know we all wanna throw up), every first year students study general courses...
and I believe the same thing also happens in other university which has engineering as one of its major.
so, what usually happens in my university is that all the first year students are thought of still being like a child. we are still children. the first year is nothing! there's no difference between the first year in university and 4th year of senior high school. (There are only 3 year of senior high school in Indonesia)

yeah....
whatever...

I know I hate having 4 years of senior high while most ppl only had 3 years and some other ppl even only had 2 years...
I hate to know that there's no difference b/w senior high and 1st year of uni...
y'know, I've had enough of hig school already...

but then... I love having 4 years of senior high becoz now I have LOADS of friends....
and when I say LOADS... I really mean it...
Best Friends Best Friends 2
almost everywhere I go now, I always meet one of my friends...
and I love it!!!

and what happened in high school, almost always repeats in my life...
until now, I'm still gossiping about who has the best clothes... who has the best hair... who has the best car... who the best couple is...
it's always like that....
It's gonna be like that forever...
and I like it...
so be it...

and here are more pics of me and some of my friends that I just gained in the last 5-6 months...
