Don’t Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will.
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with the twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out,
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worse,

do it anyway

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.

Well, niatnya si pengen rajin ngupdate. Tapi, for “some reasons” baru bisa nerusin lagi sekarang. Saking banyaknya yang pengen di-share, bingung mo mulai dari mana, dengan konsep yang seperti apa. Setelah berpikir dengan sedikit keras, gw memutuskan konsepnya adalah “no concept”. Haha :D Males mikir ;P

Berasa ada pressure gitu pas mo nulis lagi setelah berabad lamanya ga ngupdate ini blog.  Been more than a year here in Shizuoka. Living the life I’ve been dreamed about since my childhood. Main mission: to master Japanese and know more bout “some others”. Progress: *uhuk2* Japanese are getting a tiny lil bit better, but hey, i do know quite much about those “some others”.

To my dearest families and friends, I’m about to continue sharing some pieces of my journey. I dedicate them all for you. You are thought about and so very much missed! So . . .  sit back, relax, grab some snacks and enjoy the story:) Please do remember that i still got dyselexia in expressing things. So don’t be surprised if you find some weird words or lines ahead.

the letter

I got that letter today. Been wating for a week impatiently. It was an official note written in 漢字 (I can only read the “合格” [read: goukaku, means: pass] part) that after I bring it to school and showed it to my teacher, it says that I passed the exam. Can’t stop smiling while i’m riding bycicle on my way back home and think that I need to thank some people. Pardon that I use this media (fb) to share my “tiny-lil” joy today 🙂

As you might already know, it was an important exam I had last week. One of those in my dream lists that I can already put a “checked” mark on it now. Some people say it’s hard and some others say it’s easy to pass the exam. Well, to me, it was not easy (you know why, I’ve told you). However, I made it. Like an artist who won an Oscar, or a singer who had her first debut album, this is a similar thanking note from me to you (in random order), people that had helped me made it ’till this far:

– Juls: Gw inget banget ketemu lo pertama kali di depan ドンキホテー, trus langsung SKSD. Hahaha 😀 Gila, gw ngrasa lo keren banget pas abis ngedenger cerita2 “perjuangan” lo. Inspiring!

– Panji: Meskipun kita cuman ketemu skali dan bentar banget tapi lo memberikan kesan dan petuah mendalam buat gw. Ciailaaah. E-book nya keren ^_^ Mind your mind yah, Ji 🙂

– Indra: Ketemu pertama kali di ガスト, trus ngobrol (apa ngeronda ya itu?) tengah malem (apa dini hari ya itu?), dari masalah lingkungan ampe rencana memajukan bangsa. hahahaha 😀 senpai & my future working partner. Tengkyu yah, udah (dengan semena2) gw repotin ;P
よろしくね、先輩 😀

– Ilman: Kamu adalah bukti nyata yang hidup, nak. I learn a lot from u, lil kiddo!

– Wulan: Hmm, jangan bosen2 dengerin crita2 gue yaaaah ^_^

– Nella: My more than “roommate” mate! You are truly someone! Trusting me on soo many things. My everyday life supporter. Can hardly wait for you to come back, girl ^_^

– Marzie & Anja: Our short meeting is unforgettable. Miss the “shit-conversation” in our lil’ kitchen 🙂

– Mehong, Pietse, Uni, Irvan, and Pablo: Lingkaran setan yang slalu ada buat gw. Thanks for the prayers, terutama buat yang lagi rajin tahajud. Hehehe 🙂

– Ayuta: Trima kasih skali lagi atas bakaran dupa2 nya ;P This chick made it, and so will you!

– Duy, Cika, Nci, Piesca, Wini: meskipun kalian menyebar di berbagai belahan dunia, tapi slalu (dengan cara yang aneh) dapat menginspirasi gw. Anjist, bahasa gw “EYD J.S. Badudu” banget ga, sih? Hehehe 😀 Duy, kartu dari lo ituh, juara. Teteup email2an yah kita 🙂

– Gia Sista: Urang lulus, Gi. Bungah pisan! Maneh oge, sing sukses terus nya’.

– Anggita: elo orang pertama yang bisa baca nama universitas itu di salah satu foto gw. Gw menantikan kedatangan mu. Cepatlah kemari!

– Arya & Indah: 110-Rockin’ Bali gals. You know my story, deh. Arya, I wore your White GAP Shirt under my suit during the exam. I looked totally smashing cool, deh! Tapi teteup, keren2 naek sepedah ajah dong, gw ;P

– ミニュン: 静岡大学院の試験に合格した、よ。だから、ミニュンさん


– Dims: you know your role 🙂 words cannot describe, thanking you much!

You might forgot this note someday, but I still want you not to forget, that you, each of you, had somehow gave a contribution to a girl in making (one of) her dreams come true. She definitely couldn’t make it without you. It’s always glad to know that you don’t fight this battle of life alone (especially in this far, far away country). It’s also nice to know that there (still) are people who trust you more than yourself that you can really do great things. It might be just another small step, yet i believe every small step leads to big leap.

Well, that girl still got another dreams to catch \^o^/

Hatur Nuhun – Matur Kesuwun – Trima kasih – Thanks – ありがとう – Danke schon !

(Taken from one of the note i wrote before )

So then I suddenly wanna write somthin’ today. So yes, today is my birthday, one of the day that I someway consider special each year. Yup, turning 27 today (some unimportant additional info for some friends who really wanna know how old I really am).  Scared of not growing up, but not scared of growing old. I’d like to say that it’s a special birthday I have this year. Doesn’t mean that the previous ones I had before were not special, but this year’s just “different” (in a good way, couldn’t find the rite word). It’s just that I feel, during the past one year a I had, I really could find myself more if I might say.

This is some “short” note I especially dedicate for the people who help me to find “me”. Glad to meet people (family, friends, love of my life,  and enemies) who:

–          Remember my birthday.

–          Made me the best birthday cake ever today (it’s honestly a pretty and super tasty one) and gave me a lovely gift (you know who you are).

–          Take me as I am.

–          Teach me how to do things rite.

–          Are are always there (as I grow old and grow up) even when I could’t see you. You are amy stars!

–          Are patient to listen to the same old “shits” during my low moments.

–          Share their passion in life (it’s the best “contagious virus” that I’ll always love). As you share your passion, you shine, and unconciously help me to shine too ^_^

–          Share stories, songs, tears and laughters.

–          Always give neverending love and support.

–          Give me the courage to do more and more.

–          Never get tired to remind me to do good things and not to do bad things (with many kinds of logical reasons)

–          Believe that I could really make my dreams come true. I’ll do whatever it takes! \^o^/

–          Have faith in me (more than myself) that I can really do great things.

–          Say they’re not good in words to express things on some certain conditions. FYI: your willingness to listen, smile, pat on a shoulder, and even only your existence are more than enough.

–          Help me to learn how to love and how to live life.

–          Help me go through my searching soul process until now. I still need you all to help me become th very best version of me.

–          Touch my heart ; )

–          Especially, to my enemies, I’m also glad to meet you. You make me believe that: “Bad things do exist for us to learn”

It’s true that people come and go. And for those of you who know how much I hate farewell (in any kind of form, it just hurts), I used to be scared (and still a bit I guess) that I will lose the friends I have now. But I found the best way how not to get hurt is to cherish and treasure every moment you have with them. You just don’t know how much time you have left in life, and things do happen for reasons.

So my dearest family, friends, love of my  life, and enemies, I really do appreciate and treasure that. Thanks a bunch for the love, wishes and prayers. Words are just not enough to express how I really gratefull to meet you all : ) You are remembered . . . always. You’re all my best GIFT form above !

Lotsa love, hugs, and kisses ^_^
