Target unlocked?

1

I’m just gonna drop a post and run away again. News flash: It’s May 2016. On a positive note, seeing this list of books, I actually achieved my target. I said I wanted to read more non-fiction books, and I did just that! There are nine out of thirty non-fiction books on my list. About the number, again, I didn’t make it to 50, but to maintain the same amount of book is actually an achievement in itself. Before you accuse me of excusing myself, I will tell you why. 2015 is quite a feat, I finally graduated and have a lot of free time, but the pressure of getting on the next path could be really distractive. There were times when I didn’t feel like doing anything, then the guilty feeling from wasting time would force me to be productive, but soon the exhaustion of being rejected would lose my hope and I’d go back on being a certified potato couch. This kept going on a circle until I managed to break it down on December (kind of). Anyway, 2015 was not all bad, I experienced and did many things too.

As for this year, I have a quite ambitious plan; to read 100 books and write each of the reports. You may wonder, how far I have come with this plan, knowing that it’s already in the middle of the year. That, will be answered in the Books List tab as usual, lol.

2014 Books List (boring title yeah)

1

This is one of the next posts that I said earlier. A degradation from last year. by half. Sometimes I’m tired of making target since I’ve failed them most of the times. But yeah my target this yeaaar (lol) is to read more, probably still chasing the 50 books target. And what’s new is to read more facts than fictions book. For example, maybe biography or knowledge books (like encyclopedia, haha noo, wait, it’s okay too actually). In this year adventure, I found a new place to get books, which is my own campus’ library lol. I usually just read there, but I just knew that there are more fiction books that can be borrowed. I managed to take out four books out there, yay! And I’m glad that I still can see my favorite author on the list, which brings to my hope that she’ll stay productive and be on my 2015 book list

Knock Knock

Greetings on 2015! After six months of leaving the blog to dust, I finally made a visit.

What happened?

I don’t really know what to say but just to put it simply; I had this huge firey spirit to blog but then a hurricane of the Last Project in my college life came and burned it down.

I went insane and didn’t really have the will to write anymore for that time being. All I was doing were trying to do that project plus other college duties and finding time to refresh myself with other things but blogging.

First of all, let’s not forget to congratulate myself for the ten posts I’ve written on 2014! It’s getting less and less by year, wish that I could make a grand comeback someday…

Anyway, as for the resolution or goals that I want to achieve this year, I… not yet make it, but my number one dream is to graduate this semester! That’s all I really want right now, like, pretty please.

In the next posts you’ll see my usual lists which with this, is the second time around; Books and Dramas List.

Okay, bye!

Deindividuation

Identical twins we have here!!!

These are posters that I made for final exam (thanks again to my sister for the help :’) @yangauliaa). I was contemplated between black or red as the background color, at the end I picked…..

Anyway, the poster is about Deindividuation. It’s a condition when you lose your sense of self by being in the crowd. In other words you can’t be identified. That way you’ll have more courage to do unimaginable things, than when you’re on your own.

The poster I made depicted anonymity by having people in masks and in similar outfits. It makes them hard to recognize. They feel hidden, and ‘safe’ to do just anything. For example, vandalism, as in the poster, to draw graffiti on public places.

Another example could be by being online. Cyberspace. Such huge crowd, isn’t it? That’s why we often heard many cases such as cyberbullying, or just ordinary people we know being mean online, etc.

Self Talk

1

Taken from my personal notes, haha. One of the thing that I usually do. So often that it becomes a habit: To reflect upon myself. This is addressed to me, but I think it’ll be okay to share once in a while 😉

Memang ya, menyampaikan apa yang ada dalam diri kepada orang lain membutuhkan keberanian. Bertahun-tahun aku menulis di buku harian, tidak ada artinya saat harus menulis untuk dibaca oleh orang banyak.

Semakin besar semakin sadar akan batasan-batasan. Apa yang bisa disampaikan dan apa yang sebaiknya disimpan sendiri. Mungkin jika aku menulis blog saat masih anak-anak, yang ditulis akan lebih gamblang, tidak ada yang ditutup-tutupi. Tapi sayangnya tidak (untungnya?).

Saat dewasa, rasa takut semakin besar. Kesadaran akan bahaya semakin tajam. Memang mungkin akan muncul reaksi yang tidak menyenangkan saat kita membuka diri. Mungkin orang lain akan menolak kita, menutup pintunya, menyatakan ketidaksukaannya. Tapi kemunculan itu akan sama besar kemungkinannya dengan muncul orang-orang yang merasa senang, menyambut dan membuka pintu mereka, juga orang-orang yang berkata “Akhirnya kamu datang juga”

(Jangan lari dari takdirmu sendiri, Ai – Detective Conan)

Lari, sembunyi, memang terasa lebih mudah. Kamu tidak perlu berhadapan dengan kemungkinan-kemungkinan itu. Yang kamu hadapi hanya dirimu, orang-orang yang sudah kamu kenal baik, dan kenyataan.

Ya, kenyataan.

Kenyataan bahwa kamu akan merasa takut selamanya. Bahwa kamu sebenarnya kesepian. Karena tidak pernah mau mencoba membuka dan melangkah keluar, yang kamu tahu hanya rasa takut ditolak, tidak disukai. Padahal mungkin rasa takut itu akan berganti dengan rasa lega, rasa bangga dan bahagia.

Kan kubilang, kemungkinannya sama besar.

Bersembunyi dari kemungkinan keduanya. Kemudian berlindung pada ilusi bahwa kamu tidak apa-apa sendirian. Lebih baik sendirian

(Tidak ada orang yang suka menyendiri – The Extra Kobayashi)

Benar. Tidak ada. Termasuk kamu, kan?

Ingatlah bahwa penolakan itu hanya masalah kecocokkan. Kamu akan diterima, pada akhirnya, oleh orang-orang yang benar-benar menyukaimu karena merasa cocok denganmu. Dan itu berarti tidak semua orang bisa menerimamu, sama dengan kamu yang tidak bisa selalu cocok dengan semua orang.

Buka saja pintunya. Ceritakan pada dunia kisah hidupmu. Sebenarnya hidupmu tidak perlu terlalu dirahasiakan kok, kecuali kamu buronan. Tidak perlu menunggu sampai mati untuk menceritakan kisahmu pada orang lain.

Biar saja apapun yang mau orang lain katakan tentangmu, karena sebetulnya mereka lebih banyak berpikir tentang diri mereka kok. Sama seperti kamu yang sering cemas memikirkan apa yang orang lain pikir tentang kamu, mereka juga begitu.

Jadi, tenang saja 🙂

Anxiety Disorder

2

If you were a psychology student like me you may be familiar with the picture that I’m posting below. A 3rd year student I am, has now learned about clinical psychology in my class. Some of the disorder names may have been heard by you through movies or serial TVs or possibly books.

It’s, as you can see there, Anxiety Disorder. A feeling of anxiety is normal for human, as we deal with a lot of things in life in a daily basis. But, it becomes a disorder when the amount of it is way out of proportion. Worry excessively about things that you shouldn’t be and is become bothersome to your life. That is what we call Anxiety disorder (and other symptoms that you should check in the holy book of clinical psychologist; DSM-V).

This is actually a group assignment; to make a flyer filled with the explanation of the disorder in a language that can be understood by common people. I got help from my sister (@yangauliaa) to draw the girl, and a little help on how to make the bubble (thanks a lot!).

I was having fun making this. I like the feeling of accomplishment when I finished it. I rarely use photoshop properly so it’s like a new thing to have it designed well like this. (although with help :p) Anyway, I hope through this flyer people can know more about what is Anxiety disorder, and learn it in a fun way!
