Dreams are …

There is a quote from a webtoon creator/ author that I really like.

Journalists and office workers ask this question the most. As someone who has accomplished his dream, they ask me how I view them.
When I contemplate about it, I really wonder if I’ve accomplished a dream. The more I think abot it, I realize that this may not be true.

A dream isn’t about simply becoming a cartoonist, a scientist or a celebrity. These aren’t dreams. It’s about what you do in your position. I think that’s what a dream is. How a certain profession is fulfilled is more important than the profession itself.

I spent my 20s with so much yearning. I yearned excessively. I came to Seoul to draw as soon as I failed my college entrance exam. I went through rough patches and even slept on the streets. That’s how I lived. I somewhat had a desire for revenge. I was burned with a lot of anger. I was consumed with the thought of success. The cartoonist I dreamed of becoming was nice, humorous and cool. I dreamed of becoming an artist who produced great works. But the person I saw in the mirror was different from who my younger self envisioned. I realised that I became a monster. About being a cartoonist, I have to think about what words would describe me as a person.

I hope people will stop mistaking occupations for dreams. When ask children what their dreams are, I hope we don’t get an occupation for an answer. We should ask them what kind of person they want to be.

2014 yang berlalu

Ternyata uda setahun lebih nggak ngeblog (;¬_¬) Tahun 2014 adalah tahun yang santai tapi cukup melelahkan buat rohani. Lets do something better this year! Become better “woman”, muslim, daughter, friend, student, gardener, cook, and postcrosser. Target: Bulan 6 uda bergelar S2, menemukan jodoh dan segera menikah, and found something “big” to do. Amin amin amin Ya Rabb (˘ʃƪ˘)

a spur of the moment

Suddenly I said to my self :
“Waktu berjalan bagai air yang mengalir di air terjun yang curam.. Akulah batu keras di pinggir jurang air terjun itu, terlalu takut untuk terjatuh, selalu menghindari risiko kesakitan, sehingga senantiasa tertinggal dan tak kunjung tiba di hilir untuk sampai ke laut”Image

Rethinking, redreaming, replanning

Today, tanggal 25 September 2013, seorang sahabat , yuni, telah menginjakkan kakinya di negeri Sakura, tepatnya di Tokyo dan akan belajar disana selama 2 tahun. Sedih? jujur aja, sama sekali enggak,, yang ada bangga dan bahagia. Kuliah di sana emang uda jadi mimpinya sedari dulu. Iri? yah, sedikit, mungkin kalau dia diterima di negara lain yang memang pengen banget kutuju gue bakal cemburu setengah mati. Tapi Jepang bukan tujuan utama, walaupun kapan hari pengen mampir ke sana.
