Okay, first of all. I haven’t write anything for a long time. So apologies if my writing seems to be a bit rusty.
So, this is the space where I will be writing on, until the foreseeable future. If you asked me, why I am making a new blog if I already have one? Well, it’s just a part of my new year resolution. And my old blog provider was turning their service into a marketplace website, which I didn’t fully comfortable with that.
So.. what so special about today? I can tell you that I woke up today, and feeling enormously grateful! For the usual “morning wood”, and the fact that I just turned 33.
Speaking of being grateful. I remember my parents told me that, one doesn’t have to look far for reasons to be grateful in life. Just take a look at yourself first, and see what you have. There are lots of little things that seems insignificant, but are actually, make you what you are today. Be thankful for these little things.
I’ve hit some bumps in these past few years. Tough ones. But luckily, I’m surrounded by good friends, that still stick with me through thick and thin. I have a small, but very nice place to stay. I love my job, and work in a good company. Best of it, I work from home! (No Jakarta’s traffic baby!) I learn to cook a bit, occasionally invites some friends over, and so far, none of my friends died from food poisoning from eating my cooking! I still manage to have time to watch plenty of good movies, and crafting model kits. There will be reviews of them here as in my old blog as well.
And this year, I’m planning to start learning new language. Maybe Spanish, or even Italian. I’d love to get back my skill in technical drawing, will try to work on that as well. Sometimes it hit me that I got a bachelor degree in civil engineering, but I forgot how to draw and plan a simple house. Keep trying to make better pasta. Moving back to Jogja seems nice as well. So many plans, so many things to do.
Admittedly, I was a person with too much consideration when I’m about to do something. I gave too much thought, and the momentum just passed me by. Hopefully, that’s not the case for now.
Quoting a comment from my friend on my 31st birthday, in which she quoted Neil Gaiman: “May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
Coming this far, I think I did surprised myself. And I can’t wait for more. Bring it on 33!
