Mau Mati

Kemaren ada dua temen gue bilang "Aduuuhhh......pengen mati, deh" Dan gue dengan baik hatinya berkata "Tenang aja, kalo soal mati sih bakalan kejadian, kok... Sabar aja" Huehehehe... Pokoknya percakapan gue kemaren kebanyakan revolve soal kematian, soalnya bentar-bentar temen gue nge-buzz dan bilang "Petty.....pengen mati aja, deh!" Poor my dear friend, kerjaannya emang lagi gila-gilaan banget.

Honestly, gue belum pernah, sih dapet kerjaannya yang "crazy as hell and inhuman". Soalnya, one of my dear friend ada yang kerja pada saat weekend juga. Satu kata yang terlintas di batok kepala gue selalu WTF?? (dan satu lagi, gak ada super-duper overtime paid. YEAH! Eh, ada, ding.. They paid her with taxi voucher. Thank you very much, taxi voucher should cover everything +sigh+). Gue juga nggak ngerti sampai setipis apa batasan work hard dan inhuman work? Emang, sih kalo kata orang kalo mau belajar, harus rela mengorbankan apapun. Misalnya kerja nggak dibayar selama 6 bulan (ini bener ada, loh) Itu antara rela berkorban atau rela dianiaya, gue kagak ngerti dah tuh mana yang bener.

Gue cuma berpendapat, sih seingin apapun sampe lo rela untuk berkorban demi sesuatu yang lo inginin, lo nggak boleh lupa kalo lo punya hal yang namanya Dignity. Pay yourself a respect, fight for it at least. Kalo sampe rela berkorban kerja 6 bulan tanpa dibayar, padahal lo punya kemampuan yang setara dengan tenaga kerja yang udah kerja lama di kantor itu. Itu, sih sama aja tu perusahaan dapet barang bagus gratisan! Siapa yang gak seneng, itu sih untung di mereka, rugi di elo! Yaaa...nggak usah lah sampe di gaji sama dengan karyawan yang lebih experienced, but at least, you've got a 'price' for yourself.

Proud to yourself a little bit! Mungkin banyak orang yang akan bilang itu namanya kepedean. Well, honey.. I got no problem being called like that! Karena gue selalu ngerasa penting banget untuk punya pride atas diri lo sendiri. Kalo nggak siapa juga yang akan ngehargain diri lo, kalo nggak lo duluan yang mulai ngehargai diri sendiri. Have to admit, ini emang side effect sikap orang Indonesia yang 'nrimo' gila dalam segala hal. Tapi kalo kebanyakan 'nrimo' juga nggak baik buat kesehatan..hehe..

Tapi, gue selalu bilang sama temen gue (yang pengen mati itu...huehehe) mungkin dan biasanya, sih PASTI ada good thing behind that. Entah lo dapet promotion, memperluas connection, atau yang paling oke you're getting better at what you're doing, kayak managing emotion, managing deadline, advance work skill, you named it...

Itu sisi okenya, tapi yang namanya hidup nggak lucu kalo nggak ada yang tragis dan dramatis. Untuk versi yang lebih tragis lagi, dari semua hal yang lo lakuin demi pekerjaan lo, you got NOTHING!! +ketawa guling2an sambil nangis darah+ Yep, that's right you got nothing except capek lahir batin disertai penyakit saluran pencernaan sama kurang tidur yang bikin muka lo tambah jelek...huahahaha... Ups, you're REALLY are got something too, which is EXPERIENCE or to be exact a 'tragic experience' huehehehe...

Sometimes shit really happens, it's just plain shitty thing that actually comes to you...padahal lo nggak salah apa-apa. Lo cuma kebetulan jadi korban keisengan universe aja...huehehehehe. It's simply you just got the sent-from-hell employer. Kalo udah kayak gitu, lo cuma bisa nyengir kuda doang...Ngikkkkkk..kik... Tapi, seperti biasa gue selalu percaya dengan idiom "Every cloud has a silver lining" Sooo... After all shits that happened, it must be got something good behind it.

Allrighty, enough blabbing to much.
Have a nice day and night, everyone!!

Installing A Husband

Met Sore....
Ada postingan yang witty banget... Totally fun to read! Gue dapet gara-gara kebiasaan gue blogwalking...hehehe... I'll paste it...

Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewellery applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as
Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as CNN 5.0, CRICKET 3.0 and POLITICS 4.1.

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?



And here is the answer:

Dear desperate,

First, keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.

Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme. html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewellery 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1.
Please note that Beer 6.. 1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)

In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend:
Cooking 3.0 and
Hot Lingerie 7.7.

Good Luck !

Mood Swing

God, I hate p
lan! Maybe I should made friends with The Joker. Mmm...What an interesting idea I might say...hehehe.

I hate to say this, but I think I started to get bored for what I'm doin
g now. I don't know why maybe it's just a silly thoughts because of my moody moment right now. I'm always like this, easily to get bored with everything. When I'm get bored, I just want to forget everything or worse, I'll have no desire at all for what I like or I do before. Usually, I often push to the limit for do something or liking something. But strangely the more I pushed it, the easier I got bored. And I did this over and over again, and yes, it's perfectly stupid. That's why, maybe I never have any favorite things. Now, I tend to like anything without use any feelings for liking it the most. And I think it's perfectly fine so far, but as the result I'm also never hate anything....huehehe...

I need to buy things! Suddenly it just popped into my head. But, since I'm broke maybe I'll just wait until my pay day comes, which means
I should wait in 2 more miserable weeks..hiks... All right, enough for sob stuff. I got a plan to bought more books next month. It's been a while, I didn't read any quality books. The last book I read was The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas, I like the ending. It's tragedic-ironic ending, which I love it so much.... I always love tragedic ending..hehe.. From the classic Romeo+Juliet, Moulin Rouge, Titanic, Revolutionary Road and even Devdas.. You named it, beibeh...huehehe... So, I recommended the book, though. It got small amount of pages and light language with full of humanity values. Plus tonight I plan to watch the film too. It starred Vera Farmiga, Rupert Friend (Pride & Prejudice), David Thewlis (Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban) and directed by Mark Herman (Little Voice). I hope the film is as good as the book. I'll post tomorrow for the quick review..hehe... As always, my post seems going everywhere..huehehe...

Have a nice day and night. ^_^

After 5 Days Off...

How's everybody doin'? Especially after long weekend, you must be brought something to your back-to-reality-life, right? Huehehehe... Yeah, got 4 days off (for me it's 5 days, 'cause I got sick) it feels like too good to be true. ^_^

On the last day of holiday, one of my friends was texting me, "See u again on the next holiday, I need to welcoming my reality tomorrow". Huehehe... That's so fuckin' true.. So far I don't hate reality because it made my life not boring. Sometimes it sucks but so far I think I can manage it or on wise word I MUST be able to manage it or like my mom said "Mati aja lo, paling gampang kan mati". Well, that's true my mom say those words to me...huehehe.. With her tone and everything. Most of people thought it's harsh to talk that way to your daughter but after being raise for a very long time by her (yaiyalah, yaaa...huehehe..) I do love it the way she talked, she's got a sharped-straight-to-the-point mouth and quite funny too. If you don't get used to it, maybe you'll get your feeling hurt. But, I think that's part of her that actually left on me, that's one resemble me and her.

Anyhow, I do brought something to my work since yesterday. This is what I called a "Stockholm Syndrome of Holiday".
Huehehe... I mean, holiday abducted me and I so reluctant to leave!!! (huehehehe... Speaking of drama queen). But of course like any other thing in this world, too many holiday also gives you bad side effect. I spent too much money during those day. I bought too many shoes and bags, too many eating out, too many hang-out and other too-many-things... Yeah, that's right, baby. As the result is I almost broke...+sniff+.... On my bank account, it's only left enough for pay my rent and 2 weeks necessity of life. Well, because I'm so full of gratitudes... I'm still grateful that I could still live for the next 2 weeks and I'll be waiting to death for my salary paycheck (huehehe.... Speaking of drama queen..again).

Speaking of work, before holiday started... I got reviewed for my 3 month probation and the result is my company extended my probation for another 3 month. I'm so glad that they still gave me a chance to improve my work skill and to learn more, of course. I know for sure that I still need lots of improvement for my work skill and my work result during period on my first 3 month probation still wasn't excellent. My bosses said that I got the talent to do better, it just need to add more of passion and hard work. I know that I'm a total laid-back person, never take anything too intense. Not even my school, my life, my relationship or any other things that revolve me. I don't why, maybe it just me. Or maybe I just have simpler ambition than anyone else. If people running in their life, I am jogging. I don't know maybe it doesn't sound good. Maybe I should get out from my comfort zone more often.

One more thing that bothered me, when my boss asked me how am I feeling about working in their company so far. And I answered I enjoyed it, I said to them that I do like my colleagues, I don't have problem to fit in and the most important I do like and enjoy my job. Their answer was surprise me, they said "Don't get too enjoy. It's not good. It will make you dull" Well, I mean WOW!! For someone who's always started everything based on excitement and things I do enjoy or like the most, it totally hits my face so hard. The fact that I shouldn't too enjoy for what I'm doing, totally makes me questioning their opinions a lot. And I came to conclusion that maybe, it's just a different perspective between them and I or it just my way of denial...hehe... I think they asked a jogger to do long distance sprint running. Well, that'll need a hell of work.

It seems my post is going everywhere...hehehe...
I guess I'll see you soon.
Have a nice day and night.
Bye. ^_^

Another Morning Post (Men, Janda and Our Society)

Met pagiiii...everyone!!! Seperti biasa, ini hanya random notes yang 'seperti biasanya juga' nggak pernah penting...huehehe.... Maaf sekali kemaren postingannya cuma gitu aja, abis harus langsung cabut ke Digital Printing buat ngurusin guidebook yang hari ini mau di present ke klien sama bos gue.

Anyhow, bokap gue dijadwalkan akan landing hari ini... Aseeeekkkk.....^_^ Semoga lancar-lancar sajalah.. Amiiinnn. Oh, iya beberapa waktu lalu gue sempet nonton acara yang pagi-pagi itu, tuh yang soal agama atau 'mengataskan nama agama'. Ditayangin di TransTV-milik kita bersama (halah...) Pokoknya acara ini membahas hal-hal yang terjadi di society kita dengan Agama sebagai landasan pembahasannya. Sebenarnya acara kayak gini standar, sih. Banyak acara sejenis yang juga ditayangin di stasiun lain. Tapi yang sedikit mengusik gue adalah salah satu topik (yang kebetulan waktu itu gue tonton) yang membahas soal Janda. Entah kenapa, ya it sounds like misogyny.

Mungkin gue yang kurang gaul kali, ye... Ternyata status wanita sebagai janda memiliki konotasi yang cenderung buruk di society kita. I mean, why???? Apa juga yang ngebuat seorang perempuan menjadi tidak lebih baik dari yang lain karena status pernikahannya. Sebutannya banyak bener lagi, salah satunya yang famous adalah Janda Kembang. Yang dari dulu gue selalu bertanya-tanya kenapa harus "KEMBANG" Apa kali maksudnya..huehehe... Dan acaranya ini parahnya sangat menyudutkan wanita sebagai seorang janda, seolah-olah it's their fault for being as a widow. Dengan sedikit wejangan di akhir acara dari what-so-called 'Kyai' dia bilang gini "Apabila seorang wanita menjadi seorang janda, bersikaplah yang sesuai dengan norma-norma agama"

WTF??? Oh, jadi kalo masih belum jadi janda, you could hitting on somebody else's husband or cheating on your partner or even worse killing someone else, maybe? HUAHAHAHAHA... Asli, gue ketawa terbahak-bahak dengernya. Totally misogynous!! Nggak pernah, tuh sepanjang acara ngebahas kenapa seorang wanita bisa mendapatkan status itu. Apakah suaminya seorang wife-beater? Apakah suaminya meninggal dunia? Apakah suaminya memilih memiliki another wife? Kagak ada, tuh pembahasan yang lebih mendalam soal itu. Ibaratnya 'leave all mistaken and sins to women'.

Gokil, dah... Apalagi ditambah dengan pendapat dari orang-orang di society itu sendiri. Ada yang bilang "Hati-hati sama janda karena suka genit" Lah, bang saya aja yang bukan janda juga genit..huehehehe....Ohhh, supposed to kalo udah jadi janda nggak boleh nyari pasangan baru... Seharusnya lo ngendon aja di kamar meratapi nasib seperti kebanyakan karakter cewek di sinetron-sinetron Indonesia.

Malah ada satu lagi, nih comment yang lucu banget dari seorang cowok. Dengan gaya yang sok-sok centil tapi total turn-off banget. Dia bilang gini "Gue suka janda soalnya lebih dewasa dan berpengalaman" Another WTF? Pengalaman apa, nih maksudnya, mas... Pengalaman melakukan perceraian yang mungkin imbasnya mempengaruhi kebahagian anak-anaknya dan keluarganya atau pengalaman di abuse verbally atau even sexually. Of course, on that part she totally experienced. Yaaahhh... memang, sih ada ribuan alasan untuk melakukan divorce. Kalo soal salah siapa? I always believe it's both parties mistake with of course, a different level on mistake. It could be mutual or emang mengancam kesejahteraan/keamanan salah satu pihak.

Tapi memang dari mostly society di dunia, mau dari Indonesia sampe belahan dunia sebelah barat pun. Entah kenapa, perempuan selalu dituntut lebih. Agak aneh memang, kalo jaman dulu perempuan sekolah aja sampe kagak boleh, giliran sekarang, nih ya...Pas udah boleh ngelakuin apa aja. Women are should be able to do anything perfectly. Being a good mom and also being great career woman. Being good wife and also being husband 'pleaser' at the same time. Looking pretty but also had to be smart. Looking sexy but not slutty (kalo nggak lo bisa dilaporin ke polisi...huehehe) Pokoknya banyak bener, dah... No wonder, being women are quite 'stressful' sometimes, yet in another hand it makes women becomes stronger than men. (Admit it, fellas..hihi..) Sorry, if my post quite spread the senses hatred of men...hehe... Totally not on purpose..hihi.. 'Cause, I know for sure that I do love men..A lot!! Huahahaha...

Alrighty, it's just a thoughts, though...
Have a good day. Toddles.
