Q: What is your most memorable moment during your work here?
A: When I said to myself “ini gimana cara gue ngerjainnya ya?”
Q: ..and how is that positive?
A: Because that means I’m doing something new. I’m in a new situation and I can learn something new.
I feel scared and anxious all the time. Most of my works that I do right now, I know nothing about. I’m taking baby steps each and every time just to ensure that I start something, knowing that I can craft the path along the way.
There are days when I came home with my head so full I just sit in silence so I can sort everything out. There are days when I just shrugged it off and trying not to care.
There are days when I wish I could go back to the day when it’s all fun and play. But there are also days when I think that the sense of thrill not always come from something physical. Sometimes it’s mental. And it’s exciting too.
For me, The Lord of the Rings series is always a classic. And not to mention I grew up with Enid Blyton books, with all those adventures and mysteries, influenced me so much since I was a kid.
But for more recent publication, I love The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared. God, I laughed so hard throughout the book. It was so random. So unexpected. So hilarious. And heartwarming at the same time.
What I learned from that book:
1. You never too old to start your adventure.
2. Let randomness led your way, and embrace the surprises along the way.
3. The sign of good adventure is the one you share with your friends. No matter how silly it is. Even if suddenly there’s an elephant showed up in the scenario.
4. Those friends you just met, can be your friends for the rest of your life.
5. Live, and love will find you.
6. And it’s easy to overlook our role in this life. You know what, you matter. We matter. All of us matter. One action, could affect the world. And the history. So remember, we are powerful. Do good. Be good. Always.
