Sendiri


Senyumnya tragis


Suara berlarian di telinga
Cahaya berjatuhan


Derapku sunyi
Angin menampar dingin


Dialog tak berbalas
Tepuk sebelah tangan


Sendi

Something that I want

this song has been on my iPod for a very long time.
But it was a drive with Diah that got me...
The song really suited my condition right now.
*wink wink*
I just can't stop sing along:
"why do you have to be so cute?
It's impossible to ignore you.
It's bad enough we get along so well..."


Imogen Heap - Goodnight and Go

Skipping beats, blushing cheeks I am struggling
Daydreaming, bed scenes in the corner cafe
And then I'm left in bits recovering tectonic tremblings
You get me every time

Why d'ya have to be so cute?
It's impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It's bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

Follow you home, you've got your headphones on and you're dancing
Got lucky, beautiful shot you're taking everything off
Watch the curtains wide open
Then you fall in the same routine
flicking through the TV relaxed and reclining
And you think you're alone...

One of these days, you'll miss your train and come stay with me
(Its always say goodnight and go)
We'll have drinks and talk about things,
any excuse to stay awake with you
You'll sleep here, i'll sleep there,
but then the heating may be down again at my convenience
We'd be good, we'd be great together.



Oh GOSH!!!
I wish!

Careful

Thanks to Tirta for introducing this song to me.
He said this is actually an old song, one of the soundtrack for a TV serial called "How I Met Your Mother", one of my favorites actually.

Tirta was all over this song when he first told me.
He sent me bits of its lyrics and asked me to read it through.
Very romantic, indeed. the lyrics.
When I finally downloaded the song, I was a bit disappointed.
It was really slow and I wasn't in the mood for a slow song at that moment.
But after hearing it over and over on my iTunes, I finally get why he likes it so much.
Thanks a lot, Tirta!!!

So here, the lyrics.

Michelle Featherstone - Careful

It's the little things
They pulled me in and I'm defenceless
I try to ignore like I've done before but it's just useless

I've made up my mind that I'm gonna let you in
And I'm not afraid but I have to say

This is gonna hurt if it ever ends
But somehow you out shattered my defence
This is gonna hurt if it ever starts
So promise you'll be careful with my heart

It's the things you do
They made me fall hard for you and I can't help it
And it's every day that I feel this way
So just don't stop it

I've made up my mind that I'm gonna let you in
And I'm not afraid but I have to say

This is gonna hurt if it ever ends
But somehow you out shattered my defence
This is gonna hurt if it ever starts
So promise you'll be careful with my heart

I won't make excuses
They just all seem useless
You don't have the time
I guess I'll take my chances now that I know love is on the line

This is gonna hurt if it ever ends
But somehow you out shattered my defence
This is gonna hurt if it ever starts
So promise you'll be careful with my heart

Careful with my heart
Careful with my heart

Atheist

Kejadian ini bukan hasil rekayasa dan benar-benar terjadi pada penulis.
Kesamaan nama dan tempat memang disengaja.

Anak Baru 1: "ohh... kakak orang Batak juga??? sama dong kita..."
(pertanyaan yang dilontarkan setelah menegtahui kalau aku punya sebuah marga dibelakang namaku)
Alien: "iya... orang Batak juga. Eh, kalian KMK juga?"
(pertanyaan yang aku lontarkan pada anak baru setelah aku mengetahui asal SMA mereka.
KMK = Keluarga Mahasiswa Katolik)
Anak Baru 2: "Saya aja yang KMK, mereka bedua PMK."
(sambil menunjuk Anak Baru 1 dan 3.
(PMK = Persekutuan Mahasiswa Kristen)
Alien: menganggung-angguk mengerti, kemudian sibuk mengobrol bersama Samuel dan Ravina.

Tiba-tiba terdengar bisik-bisik diantara ketiga anak baru tersebut.
"Si kakaknya PMK atau KMK?"
"Gak tau, tanyain aja..."

Akhirnya...
Anak Baru 3: "Kak, kakak PMK atau KMK?"
Alien: terpana dan ternganga.
Anak Baru 3: "eh... KMK atau PMK atau yang lain?"
Alien: masih terpana dan ternganga.
Samuel: "Alien tuh atheist kali..."
Anak Baru 3: "Oh iya???" (gantian terpana dan ternganga)
Alien, Ravina, Samuel: tertawa terbahak-bahak.
Samuel: "Eh enggak. Alien tuh agnostic..."
Alien: (mendiamkan Samuel) "Enggak kok. Aku Islam."
Ketiga Anak Baru: "Ooohh..." (sambil mengangguk-angguk.)

Setelah hampir 3 tahun lebih di ITB, masih aja dikira non-Islam.
Pertanda supaya aku lebih rajin beribadah kali ya...???

Meredith Brooks - Bitch

(thanks to The Rebound,
it reminded me again of one very cool old song to rock along.

NICE!!!)

I hate the world today
You're so good to me
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you
but you look at me like maybe I'm an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet

Yesterday I cried
You must have been relieved to see the softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused,
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything all rolled into one

I'm a bitch
I'm a lover
I'm a child
I'm a mother
I'm a sinner
I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell
I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

So take me as I am
This may mean you'll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that when I start to make you nervous
And I'm going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change and today won't mean a thing

I'm a bitch
I'm a lover
I'm a child
I'm a mother
I'm a sinner
I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell
I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

Just when you think you've got me figured out
The season's already changing
I think it's cool you do what you do and don't try to save me

I'm a bitch
I'm a lover
I'm a child
I'm a mother
I'm a sinner
I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell
I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

I'm a bitch
I'm a tease
I'm a Goddess on my knees
When you hurt
When you suffer
I'm your angel undercover
I've been numb
I'm revived
Can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way

The Rebound

I spent my Saturday afternoon with Samuel and we ran out things and ideas of stuff to do at around 5 pm.
We walked to Blitz and saw what was on.
We finally decided that we didn't have anything to do and it didn't hurt to watch a movie.
And we decided to watch The Rebound.

I wasn't sure about how Samuel likes it.
but I REALLY LIKE the movie.
I mean it. I really do.

The story was about a woman with two children who was going through a divorce and moving to New York City. It was all about her and her effort on getting back on her own feet.
Long story short, she met a new guy who is much younger than her.
They started going out but she wasn't sure if she would be okay with a younger guy. Plus she was afraid that she would use this younger guy as a rebound because she was fairly upset about her husband. On the other hand, this younger guy was also a divorcee and there was a slight possibilities that she could be his rebound girl too.
They finally broke up and did whatever they needed to do. and at the end, they accidentally got back together again.

It was a really good romantic comedy. Good chick flick.
I mean with Catherine Zeta-Jones's acting. She is one hell of a mother!
The dialogues were wit! the characters were really deep-sinking.
And with the handsomeness that Justin Bartha owns, it was like a complete movie for me.

It tells stories about how women can actually do anything and everything at one time.
It also tells stories about how girls can not be controlled by guys, in any kind of situation, whatsoever, if the girls want to.
It was simply a very well-thought romantic comedy.
With a lot more messages in it, rather than just romance and comedy.

I would recommend this movie to any of my girlfriends.
or to anyone.
GREAT movie!


p.s. anyway, sorry Rav!

Dambaanku

Sejak siang aku sudah terbayang-bayang wajahmu
Rasa rindu ini membuncah, menggerogoti
Pertemuan kita semalam sepertinya belum cukup
Ditambah lagi, aku belum sempat pamit tadi pagi.

Mataku meredup perlahan
Aku merasa jiwaku melayang
Walaupun hanya membayangkan
Tapi aku sudah mabuk kepayang

Bahumu adalah sandaran terindah
Kau tidak pernah menyerah
Walaupun saat berat badanku bertambah
Kau malah menyambutku dengan tangan pasrah

Indahnya dunia saat ku dipelukmu
Rengkuhanmu begitu hangat bagiku
Mengistirahatkan benakku
Ragaku ditentramkanmu

Bersama kita membangun mimpi
Tenggelam di dalam alam tidak sadar diri
Berdekatan rapat seperti sepotong inti
Berjanji selalu bersama hingga ku mati

Tidak sabar rasanya aku untuk pulang
Berlari ke pelukanmu yang menungguku dengan sabar
Sudah kubayangkan diriku akan terjatuh
Dan membiarkan Tuhan mengistirahatkan ruhku

Tempat tidurku,
Kaulah dambaanku.


puisi ini mengundang banyak kontroversi.
padahal cuma terbentuk di dalam sebuah kelas Manajemen Teknik Lingkungan yang sangat bikin ngantuk. hahahahha!

what do you need boyfriend/girlfriend for?

I heard so many story about how suck my friends' boyfriends and girlfriends lately.
and now I get to the point of wondering:
what do you need a boyfriend/girlfriend for?

I mean, honestly people,
what do you need a boyfriend/girlfriend if your relationship is based on pity?
why do you hold on to that relationship just because you are afraid that the other person is gonna hurt?
it is simply a risk of creating a temporary relationship.
you should know from the start that there will be some point in your life when you and your boyfriend/girlfriend have to separate from each other.
Sure it's gonna hurt, but to hold on to it will definitely hurt you more.

other thing is,
what do you need a boyfriend/girlfriend who does not understand you?
when you want to drive your own car so you can easily come and go independently, your boyfriend/girlfriend should understand that.
when you would prefer to go with your friends rather than your boyfriend/girlfriend, he/she should understand that, because friendship is forever while loving your boyfriend/girlfriend can be temporary.
and when you have boyfriend/girlfriend, who said that there would be no boundaries between the two of you? You two need some privacy, some space between each other, that is why understanding each other is very important.

plus this little things,
what do you need a boyfriend/girlfriend who can't take care of his/herself?
Do you have to pick her up all the time?
do you have to wake him up every morning?
Do you have to check whether she has had dinner or not, like everyday?
do you seriously have to constantly remind him of the danger of smoking?
If he/she can't take care of his/herself, he/she wouldn't be able to take care about you.

Last thing,
what do you need a boyfriend/girlfriend who doesn't listen or, even worst, talk?
I thought one of the purposes of having a boyfriend/girlfriend is to have someone you can talk to and listen to, whenever you need him/her.
what do you need a boyfriend/girlfriend if you still tell all your life stories to your friend(s)?
what do you need a boyfriend/girlfriend who's not listening to your story, or even worse not saying anything to respond to your stories?
I thought the effort has to be mutual. so when the other person refuse to help out, by not listening and talking, why do you still have to keep it going?

as crazy as it is,
these whole problems that my friends are facing about their boyfriends/girlfriends made me think that the whole concept of platonic relationship makes more sense.
And I hate myself to think that.
I'm a conservative woman. I need my (future) guy to 'say the words' to mean what he feels about me. and platonic relationship with my paradigm don't fit together, so it's pretty complicated.

So, to my friends, wherever you are,
if you think there will be no future with your current boyfriend/girlfriend, break up!
we're still young!
would you stuck with a person you don't even like for an even longer time?
there are a lot more fishes to catch!!!

Dia Datang dan Pergi


Dia datang padaku dengan tiba-tiba
Bagai salju yang datang dibulan Juni
Suhu disekelilingku menurun drastis
Memaksa bulu kudukku berbaris tegak

Dia datang padaku tanpa tanda
Bagaikan gempa di Padang
Memberikan aku guncangan yang keras
Mempuat aku terpana

Dia datang padaku dengan seenaknya
Bagaikan hujan di bulan September
Turun sebelum waktunya
Saat aku sedang tidak punya tempat berteduh

Dia kemudian pergi

Dia pergi meninggalkanku dengan tiba-tiba
Bagai angin di bulan Oktober
Tidak terdengar datangnya,
Namun ketika pergi meninggalkan dingin di kulitku

Dia pergi meninggalkanku tanpa tanda
Bagai maling profesional
Sukses mengambil barang
Tanpa ketahuan

Dia pergi meninggalkanku dengan seenaknya
Bagai kucing kampung liar
Yang segera pergi setelah perutnya kenyang
Dan selalu kembali lagi saat perutnya lapar.

I should stop...

... telling my friends stories
... listening to my friends' hypothesis
... creating a scenario in my head.

I really should stop...

Congratulations, you and your MacBook Pro were made for each other.

That was the very first sentence that was written in the little manual book that came with my new laptop.

Yes. I finally got a new laptop.

So yeah, goodbye my little VAIO!!!
Hello MacBook Pro!!!

The Current Catchiest Song

Thanks to my friend, Fleuri Paramita Aprianti, I finally found out about this song!
Chairlift - Bruises

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you
Yeah
Every time I fell

I tried to do handstands for you
but every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue
Permanently blue for you

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you
Yeah
Every time I fell

I tried to do handstands for you
but every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue
Permanently blue for

You
Ooh
For you
Ooh
So black and blue
Ooh
For you
Ooh

I grabbed some frozen strawberries
so I could ice your bruisy knees
But frozen things
They all unfreeze and now I taste like

All those frozen strawberries
I used to chill your bruisy knees
Hot July ain't good to me
I'm pink and black
And blue for you

I got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black
And blue

Got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black
And blue for

You
Ooh
For you
Ooh
So black and blue
Ooh
For you
Ooh

Do-doo-do-do-do

chasing the pavements that were built to last

Adele - Chasing Pavements

I've made up my mind
Don't need to think it over
If I'm wrong I am right
Don't need to look no further
This ain't lust
I know this is love

But if I tell the world
I'll never say enough 'cause it was not said to you
And that’s exactly what I need to do if I end up with you

Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place should I leave it there
Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere

I build myself up and fly around in circles
Waiting as my heart drops and my back begins to tingle
Finally could this be it

Or should I give up
Or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place should I leave it there
Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere

Melee - Built to Last

I've looked for love in stranger places
but never found someone like you
someone whose smile
makes me feel I've been holding back
and now there's nothing I can do

cause this is real, and this is good
it warms the inside just like it should
but most of all
most of all, it's built to last
it's built to last

all of our friends
saw from the start
so why didn't we believe it too?
now look, where we are
you're in my heart now
and there's no escaping it for you

cause this is real, and this is good
it warms the inside just like it should
but most of all
most of all, it's built to last

walking on the hills at night
with those fireworks and candlelight
you and i were made to get love right

cause this is real, and this is good
it warms the inside just like it should
but most of all
most of all, it's built to last

cause you are the sun in my universe
consider the best when we felt the worst
and most of all, most of all
most of all, most of all,
most of all. most of all
it's built to last


So Adele was still confused about keeping her feelings up,
when suddenly Melee
came to say that
if Adele feels that this is something real, then it is good.
If it
warms up her inside,
Melee believed that Adele's feeling was built to last.


what do I think?
