This project started on...oh heck, even tmblr said it's already too long they can't give me the exact date.
First post written two years ago. I started on Tumblr.
Second post written in May 2012. More than 1 year ago. I continued in blogger.
And todaaayy, my 30 days project will finished! I shouldn't be proud, working a 30 days project for two years but hey at least I finished!
So, what I wanna write? Another letter...
I sent you the invitation.
I don't mean to throw it in your face, or acting all annoying...If what you said is true.
It's a kind of recognition which I don't give easily ; That you are, special.
Don't be The Wolverine to my Jean Grey, be Harry Potter to my Hermione...maybe not what you're looking for, and it is your choice to come inside or leave. But I sincerely hope you'll stay.
If what you said is not true, all the same...
I hope you have a great adventure in your search, and you got what you're looking for.
And we can share each our adventure stories.

Today is not a good day,
I miscalculated something in work, and my hierarchy and his hierarchy didn't recheck and send the report straight to the my boss' boss' hierachy (too many hierachy and boss, i know).
When I try to find out what happened, a colleague came and show me a hurt little bird in his hand. He hope I could help rescueing the bird.
I hold the phone a bit and ask him what happened (he found the bird on the floor, barely moving) I ask him what he expect of me? (I'm the environment supervisor, i should do the conservation - whatever that mean)
He's looking for food, but I don't have any. I offer him my bean juice and tell him he should try the restaurant for banana (now i think about it, do bird eat banana?)
Meanwhile, the phone is still on hold. I decide to finish it first, than take care of the bird. My colleague went (i assumed) to the restaurant.
When I finished, I went looking for my colleague. The he told me the little bird died before he feed it.
I feel guilty.
Why don't I hang up the phone and help the little bird first?
Baby bird...I'm sorry..I'm sorry I don't help you. I'm sorry I prioritize something not that important. I'm really really really sorry...

Date someone plain with amazing personality
Date someone beautiful with plain personality
Someone beautiful with amazing personality, of course! Like the phrase said, "Aim for the moon, you'll probably end up in New York." And that's not bad...at all!
In this case, will end up with someone plain with amazing personality (who usually...actually, look quite beautiful) ;)

You remind me of two persons.
Myself. With the mix of my tragic friend.
Everytime I talk to you, I think I can feel what you feel. The energy, like you can do anything in this world....yet you're not sure what exactly you want to do.
I can feel the adventure in your sentences, the adventure of life. Searching for answer in dark times, chewing that bitter cold hard steak called reality, and feeling glorious when you can overcome all of it.
But I bet, the best feeling is feeling blown. An unexpected result you get in the search, when you encounter something new and it shows you a new world. Something you never knew before. (sometimes it's) something small, yet made you think "this is what flying must felt like" so free, so liberating. Made the journey worthwhile, addictive even.
I've been there. It's raw energy you have, you can mold it into anything.
You excite and worry me. I've seen adventure taking a tragic turn. But then again, the best ones is always the one on the edge, between tragic and glory.
Adventure is about getting lost, and find a way. Nobody know where's your cliff, and where's the secret way to save you. Only you will find one of them, and I really hope you find that secret way. And you will mold that energy into something good, in the end.
But as a reader, I can only hope, I can only imagine. The story, probably will be something I can't imagine.
Like a good book, I hope I get to read it until the last page. And I get to read it over and over again.
I sent you my prayer, may the saving grace protect you....always.

I have a weak heart.
It's easy to fall in. It also easy to fall out. And when it fall out, I never look back. Under whatever circumstances.
But I'm happier like this...so...it's not your fault that you don't know I'm this cold.
My defense, I'm better off without your drama. In your defense (it should be), if I can't put up with your drama, I'm not worthy.
Let it go, don't wait and walk your way. Let this be a lesson learned for us. You'll be happier too...
If it meant to be, our path will be crossed again, and maybe that time it'll stay. Or maybe not. Who knows? Let's not worry about things beyond our control...

I remember he call me and he said, "let's go watch today" / "hari ini kita pergi nonton ya". I thought we're going to watch a movie. Then he said "bring your hat" I was like...ummm...why? Then I remember, today is linkin park concert. Is it...possible...
And since then I'm sold. I started to go to concerts whenever I can.
Next is Coldplay, the X&Y album tour. Also my first trip to Singapore.
So many memories about this concert...
the concert was great!! I remember the bulb won't turn on so Chris have to sing Yellow without the bulb, the gigantic yellow balloon full of confetti (which turn out to be Singapore Indoor Stadium signature event), and Chris run to my section and sing from there. In the middle of the crowd. If that happened in Indonesia, he probably won't come out with his clothes intact.
What make this the most memorable concert was also because the random memories.
The day before the concert is the World Cup Final 2006 where Zidane headbutted Materazzi. The day after the concert is my Calculus final exam, and I failed it. It was also the time of Rihanna's Umbrella. The song was literally everywhere, My weekend was full of it. Bandung-Jakarta-Singapore ; in angkot, in travel, in airport, in mall, in shops, in hotel, in MRT, in the street, in grocery store, frikking everywhere.
Jamiroquai - he's so great live! It's like a giant party...I have a very long post in this blog about this concert. That said much. My disappointment is unable to sneak in my camera (when lots of people clearly could) and Jamiroquai didn't wear the Indian headdress. But other than that, ggrreeeaaatt!!
Muse - the sound system was not that great but the visual is awesome, and they're already cool. So, not that bad...but not that special either.
I remember the trip more than I remember the concert. The concert was in February, one day in Sept/Oct/Nov the year before, I woke up to a text my dad sent me and my brother "we'll go to Singapore in Feb next year to watch Muse, please clear your schedule" DUH, like you have to ask? It was a great surprise, which is a BIG thing since my dad is very cool and don't go for surprises, and birthday, or any custom other people used to have. It was also first time we go somewhere new, together, all four of us. After six years of living apart so all the holiday we have, we use to visit each other or family.
Temper Trap - perfect in terms of sound. PERFECT. It's like consecutive orgasm (or you can say eargasm) for two hours. I still can remember wondering how can my ear hear everything so clearly. Definitely gonna buy the DVD if only the sell it. And the shirt I bought is soo comfortable. My favorite T-shirt.
This joint concert by Java: The Maine, FTSK, and Hellogoodbye.
Dreamtheater - Not my cup of tea, just wanna see the legend before they completely disband, and accompanying my dad and my uncle. And the sound system suck, can't even hear the bass. Poor John Myung...
Owl City - I love.love.love his music, i don't get to go to the first concert because the next day is my graduation, so the next year when I got the chance I go. Even if I have to go alone. And I did. And if I have to do it again, I will still go alone than not at all. It's huge, since I usually I'd rather not attend than have to attend alone. Especially if I have to watch it with lots of elementary school girls who have waay better style than me (i.e: crop jeans jacket over white dress, silver sequined loafer, and leopard printed shawl)

I want to live in my dream house (with big garden and comfy library)
I want to own a tea plantation
I want to have a boat
And most importantly, I want to always feel grateful, so I always content. With grace and open mind.
That's who I want to be...how do you sum it up?

2. I'm a hoarder. I have a box full of junk that I called priceless memories. I should put them in an album or something but somehow I have no idea what to do with them. But I don't wanna throw it away.
3. I have obsession with blackheads (comedo). Since I have none, I keep pestering my dad and my brother to let me squeeze their blackheads. It's like treasure hunting, so much fun!!
