I'm a boring 21 years old girl living in a small but beautiful city -- Yogyakarta. Currently starting her career in a big corporate as a Creative Marketing Associate; trying to get through life one day at a time.
A Little Twist That Changes Everything


I still can't believe it's been such a long time since I last write anything here. And to tell you that SO much things have happened in my life (and the fact that I'm 21 years old now) right now, sometimes shakes me a little bit. But anyways, I need to kick myself back to reality and probably start writing again.

So basically, I already told you (or gave you an info) that my sister got married last year. Now, even though it has been some time since we lived separately, it still feels weird now that I live completely alone with my dad. But honestly, it's been quite alright, we (me and my dad) are both busy with work, which I'm about to tell you later in this post what I've been up to! And so, here I present you a picture of me and my sister on her wedding day. I wrote that heart-touching caption because I want to -- and because I talk too much as a person (which I know you know about this.)

It was a beautiful wedding yesterday, and yes, I was teary-eyed almost the whole time. Forget about how both of my parents felt — letting their first daughter off to her new life, her new journey, making new memories with her new family — I couldn't even held back the tears when I walked her down the aisle to her now-husband. The last one year since we live apart, was actually the time when we grow closer as sisters. Our relationship changes and I've since then grew increasingly protective of her. Back then I never thought we'd have this kind of closeness growing up, but yesterday, it hit me hard like "this is it, this is the moment, everything is going to change but it's going to be better, better for her" and it's somehow comforting to know and to feel that way. Surrounded by loved ones and all the angels from heaven, she is now a wife of someone who's equally amazing as she is. I'll never worry about you anymore. You're in the perfect hands now. We will never worry. And like I said, it was a beautiful wedding. I love you :) #CiciDhanyDay

Anyway, last year, I went through a lot. Well, like most other years before, I went through a lot and changed a lot (I think). But all and all, I feel like I managed to become a better person, even though the changes didn't actually happen along the year. A few things to recount, I think, to have passed 2 semesters in college and managed to STILL stay sane. It was rough, like, real rough. I got so lazy after the 5th semester that I felt sooooooooooo pulled down by having to get through the classes. Thankfully, I still have that habit of "just go fucking do things and get it over with", and I managed to finish all the itsy-bitsy shits of college, right on time. (YEAY!)

So up there, is a picture of me after my 'seminar proposal' for my final thesis so I can finish up my college life and be free (and get to be an undergraduate!). I'm LEGIT excited to be Sarjana Sastra, I feel like it's a cool degree, you know, like, I understand literature a lot (when I'm actually not), but I still get to be called Sarjana Sastra anyway :P I plan on finishing my thesis in February and hopefully will graduate in May this year. Wish me luck, okay!

Another highlight of last year was turning **21**. I'm basically legal now, I don't have to ask people to buy me beer (padahal nggak pernah ditanya ID nya juga), but I used to get nervous when I wanna buy beer for being under-age lol nevermind. Beside being legal, I'm also nervous for the fact that I'm now old :( I used to feel like I'm always too young in the middle of every circle of friends I know, but now? Ugh, like a huge responsibility on my shoulder just for turning 21. I feel like I need to be more serious, and this feeling of needing to be more serious lead me to something ~**AmAzin9**~ (and basically out of  my comfort zone.

Ready to hear what I'm about to reveal? I'M A LEGIT WORKER NOW. For those of you who know me, I'm the laziest bum that ever lived in this world. Like, I basically do nothing all day beside doing what I have to do -- going to classes, doing papers, etc. Other than that, basically, nothing. Nothing that would improve my value in life (sad, huh?) and improve my value as a person. So, about the end of November 2015, my sister encouraged me to apply to this new startup company based in Jogja, as an intern, who was searching for a Content Writer for their web-based startup. Honestly, I was so lazy, and because I've never done anything serious in life, even had never work in them kind of work field, I believe I wouldn't be fit for the job. But anyway, I applied, and to my own surprise, they hired me!

^^LOL I have no picture of the office and/or my picture at the office but I took that Snapchat selfie on my 3rd day of working there. Okay, so now, details! I work at this new startup called Ehloo. They've been established for about 4 months now, and it's basically a website that kind of like Buzzfeed-y. You know, we make articles and videos about anything that relate to your life. So there I was, as one of their writer, still new, still learning, still you know.. Figuring things out. But I'm so glad that I get to be one of them employees because I like the fact that they're new and I can get to grow along with them and also help the company grow.

I started working there at 1st of December 2015, so it's been a month now, and I already made quite a progress that I'm personally proud of. I got the chance to build the company and they gave me a new position (although it's still in a 'trial' mode, but I'm happy to work, day-by-day, trying to improve the company, the brand, the team, everything, to a better and more interesting place. Not to brag, but I'm happy to tell you guys that now, after a month, they trust me to be the new Creative Director, and I'm trying so so so so so hard to make great things happen there!

Please do pray for me that things will be good and great in my new step in life! If you guys ever want to see few of my writings there, just click this link here. I'm not very good at writing, but I'm still learning tho hehehe. If you guys have the time, please go to our Facebook page and click like! Also, you can click the link of the Instagram page and follow the account. Ehloo still got a lot to improve, and I'm working very very hard to make things work! :)

And last but not least, if you ever wonder about my relationship..

I'm (still) with him. Bian is still as amazing as always. And yes, we still have our ups and downs, but that's normal in any relationship, right? And if you're wondering why we (still) haven't got married yet, we actually wondering about the same damn thing, too. Lol. Just kidding. We have plans, but not in the near future! If I ever get the chance to make them plans come true, I will surely let you guys know :)

Until then,
I'll see you guys in the next post!

You tried to change didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do, love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.
