About Online Presence

These days, my friends and I were some kind of stalking our lecture background on the web. The reason? As simple as he didn’t say anything about himself at our 1st class-meeting. Knowing him so stunningly good looking smart, we were curious about his educational background, and any other career records. Then it ended up… he was hard to find, even on LinkedIn.

On that moment, I thought to myself… how well does google know me?

I typed my name on the search engines and it revealed so many, especially this blog. It occurred to me: well… maybe some things need to be managed. But here, I feel like talking more about my presence on blogosphere.

The F-word

Today is exactly not Friday, but I insist to submit my post about  EF #16.1-“New Year, New Word”. Still in January, let’s start this year with the word of hope. Mine is FEASIBLE.

Feasible: (/ˈfiːzɪb(ə)l/) adj. means practical to do easily or conveniently; likely; probable. [1]

You see the title above? Yup, the F-word here is not the bad word or anything you could think of 😀 In this year, my marriage will turn 3 on the next monday and my daughter will turn 3 as well at the end of Desember. Three years of this journey, we have several big goals: both are the financial and non financial ones. So hopefully, all of them could be done conveniently as expected. Nothing we could do to make them come true, except keep doing what we need to. Some bumps might come along the way, but there’s no need to worry.

Well well, this is a short post anyway as a reminder for me to keep moving forward and not to procrastinate. miihihi.

What’s your magical word  for 2016 by the way? Let me know! 🙂

EF #29: Childhood Companionship

My childhood and her is one thing. She’s my all time partner. I was the yellow ranger, she’s the pink one. She’s the coffee, and I’m the milk. She’s the extrovert, and I’m the introvert. She is whom I look up to as an older sister. When one of us cried, the other would show silly faces just to make it stop. You used to stop, but I didn’t 😛

Time goes by and we were those teenagers who talked about boys. We both had our own issues and we shared our thoughts. Those talks then led us to discuss about life. That was my favorite, by the way! ❤ We questioned about fate, how things happened, why and how it should be, you’re my favorite person for this one. More things were coming, and we shared more.

But then I went to college out of town. Continue reading

EF #19: The Sweetest Bond

I love this 19th challenge of english friday! ❤ It brings me to those good times in college. I've never thought that living under the same roof for 3 years could create this strong bond with the girls. We're on the same year, and I remember the first time when we greeted each other in a very good manner. But actually they're all silly, so silly I always miss to be back on those days.

EF #18: It was so complicated…. for my pocket money.

I made this post related to the 18th Challenge of english friday which is about The Complicated Relationship.
For me, a complicated relationship is the root of any discomfort. It is a situation where I know there is something wrong’s going on, and I want to fix it. But in the other hand, it needs the second party’s role to make it better. So I’ll end up having no clue of which way to start.
In this condition, all I feel is like hanging on a thread. At most case, we would just blame the other party for the inconvenience.

My complicated relationship happened 2 or 3 years ago, and it was me and my college. At that time, there was a moratorium regulation for civil servant as Mr. President required it to be. It was a problem for me and other alumna of state colleges. We should have been declared as civil servant and placed in some instances by the time we had graduated. But it didn’t go that way. We were waiting for about 7 months in vain without any further notice.
It was of course a problem to my pocket money, too 😀
I was too shy to ask for it to my parents since I’ve been graduated, but I couldn’t make some money either. I was thinking of applying an internship at some public accountants in town or tax consultants, like some of my friends did, but I couldn’t assure the company how long I’d stay. Because in the other side, I didn’t want to disappoint them anyway.
So all I did was just staying at home, watching KDrama dan reality show. Sometimes I accompanied Mom here and there to the tax office, running errands, and so on. On the other occasions, I went with Dad to do his business which was a fun thing to do.

It was enjoyable, though. But at some point, too much of holidays could kill your brain and you’d feel bored you could die 😆 I didn’t know about blogging at that time, so I just had fun in the other way around.
So yes, this was my complicated relationship with…. the regulation? or the state college? 😀
Well, I’m not sure, but I was so much hung up by the regulation back then.

So, have you been in a complicated relationship? 🙂

EF #17: I wanted to be…

Finally, I’m getting back with the english friday post of BEC after skipping the previous challenge. This week theme is about our future goals now and then. And I suddenly remember one of Barney’s song that I’ve heard lately…

Just imagine,
Just imagine,
Just imagine all the things that we could be
And all the places that we could go and see
Imagination’s fun for you and me…

When I was little, I used to imagine myself of becoming a working mother!

EF 4: Doraemon’s Copy Robot

Here we go again, the 4th of BEC Challenge Post!

The theme for this week is “Grab a Tool from Doraemon’s Magic Pocket”. This one is quite tough for me because I barely remember those gadgets in the comics or movies :\ All I know is just Take-Copter (Baling-Baling Bambu), Anywhere Door (Pintu Kemana Saja), Time Furoshiki (Selimut Waktu), Small Light (Senter Pembesar/Pengecil), Time Machine (Mesin Waktu), you name it. So, I was just browsing and found this gadget: Copy Robot!! ⭐

This gadget is also known as Copi Robotto.

How does it work?
To activate this robot, you just have to push the red button on its face (I reckon that’s the nose part) and it will turn into someone who pushes the button. Not only will it have the same appearance as us, but also the personality. The difference is just the robot version of us has a slightly red nose. How cool is that? *smirking* :mrgreen:
But do not ever try to hurt it, or else it’ll become mean and destructive, especially when its head hurts.
To deactivate, just push the same button as we activate it at the first time, the red nose.

What would I do with it?
I would send “the copy-me” to work at my office! Yes, replacing me for sure 🙄 💡
So, while she’s working, I could have plenty of time with my daughter at home and get paid as well 😆
And, whenever I’m reluctant to do anything, I’d send her anyway~~

Yah,, a dream is just a dream. Let’s wake up, reality is waiting 🙂
