Here I am

Here I am, at my desk, waiting for an inspiration to descend from the heaven. I’ve submitted dozens of short story to various newspapers, magazines and competitions but none of them gave me good news. A pathetic boy you could say, I’ve only been into writing for eight months and I already compared myself to J. K. Rowling and Rick Riordan.

Here I am, at my desk, scribbling like an idiot. Maybe I need to learn how spongebob write “The” to spend my spare time in a positive procrastination way. Yeah, you read it right, a positive procrastination, it happens when you learn something when you are supposed to do another task. Personally, reading is a positive while watching netflix is another unless you’re into cinema.

Here I am, at my desk, wondering what is it like to have a fanbase and inspiring hundreds, thousands, or even millions people. Must be interesting to know that people are buying your book and lining up to get your autograph. It’s still a long way, though. I can’t even produce a thousand words story.

Here I am, at my desk, staring at my blank paper. Maybe I should start a blog and be a blogger instead.

Meghan and Jessie

“You don’t need to be so straightforward just now, you know?” Meghan said as she walks beside me.

“Which…” “The food for god’s sake.” she cut my sentence.

“It’s a common sense to let people finish their…” “Doesn’t matter if I’m not wrong.” she did it again.

“Fine, I couldn’t really eat it, what would you expect?” I replied. “A sincere thank you?” she raised her eyebrows.

“I’ve said thank you.” “In a sarcastic way.” Meghan reminds me.

They’ve said treat people the way you want to be treated and I really hate people talking at my back so I’m trying to be an honest person. I know some opinion better left unsaid but I do think saying thank you is a must.

“No, I said ‘thank you for the food but I can’t eat spicy food’. What’s wrong with it?” I stopped before we go separate ways.

“Well, you could just receive it and give it to someone else.”

“And if they know?” I asked.

“If. They. Know.” she said word by word slowly and carefully.

Some part of me actually agree with her, but if I were in their shoe and I knew that the gift been given to someone else, I would be totally devastated.

“I think it’s better to turn it down at the first place, so they won’t repeat the same mistake.” I lectured her. She freeze for a moment. “You sound like my teacher Jes. You win this one.” She waves her hand as she walks her way home.

“Love you Meghan.” I smiled. “Love you too Jessie… I’ll get you on the next one.”

It failed again


It’s already noon and I just woke up. “Where am I?” I thought. There’s a small chair and an old desk in front of me. The chair lost one of its leg and the desk itself is perforated. Maybe there’s a lot of termites in it.

The window is huge and really ancient. I think it’s come from medieval era. An arc at the top with flat bottom frame. One thing that’s intrigues me that the curtains come in bright pink colour.

Ahh… I think my time machine just messed up with my mind again.

It’s a Habit

“Why do you write in an upside down paper?”

A lot of our friends ask us a lot about that habit because it’s the one that seems obviously weird. At first, we explain why we do it and now it’s just a habit. If we traced it to the past, perhaps it is one of our turning point of being a freak. Not that freak but we’re not that normal though. The upside paper remind us to not follow the society just because ‘that is how they have done it’ and  it’s not breaking the rules.

Writing in an upside down paper taught us that it’s just a meaningless habit, isn’t it? Nope, it is some small habit but habit define who you are, habit define the way you live your life. Maybe it’s small but there’s a creature called butterfly which could make huge storm (we’re talking about butterfly effect). Slow and steady step is usually more important than a sprint. Usain Bolt won his third consecutive olympic 100 metre gold medal last year. Seems a huge achievement but do you know how much he train before he sprint in an Olympic race just for less than 10 seconds. As for us, our university college and our junior sees us as a genius but they don’t know how much book we’ve read and how many things that we’ve learned along the semester. It’s not how long that you’ve studied but it’s how long that you’ve learned, people usually study for the test and not learn it for the rest of their lives because they thought that it won’t be useful for them. They’re not really wrong but society nowadays are missing a point, learning is mainly about the process and good result is one of the side effect if you learn in a good way.

Let’s say you learn math and their hell of equation. Almost all of us could agree that we couldn’t apply it in the real life but then is learning math is useless? As you can guess, the answer is no. Why? Because learning math taught us to think logically.

Lastly, maybe it’s not related to the previous paragraph or whole of them but we want to say that none of your effort is really useless. Maybe it’s look meaningless but it will help you magically because you know life is a mystery.

Infinity and Beyond


“To infinity and beyond..!!” Buzz Lightyear said. Easier said than done, doesn’t it? I believe everything is possible when we could imagine it.

3 and a half years ago, we graduated from high school. We barely know a thing and don’t even imagine we have a life purpose. We registered at some community service to fill up our vacation before we got in to college. No one recognise us at that time. We were a hardcore introvert or some people call it socially awkward.

Now, we’re achieved many things. Well, we’re not that overly achieved anything. It’s just unthinkable that we would reach this point at these days. Being a experienced moderator in some small event but still standing up in front of a lot of people need a lot guts, don’t you agree? Some of our friends thought we’re a friendly person and that’s a huge positive to think.

Until this point, maybe we sounded out of topic but here’s what we want to tell you. Infinity is overrated, infinity cannot be quantified and that’s why it is overrated. Being better than yourself in the past is easier. Then what infinity and beyond means? In our opinion, it’s talking about breaking the limits. Correct us if we’re wrong but infinity is usually associated with limit and beyond means beyond the limit, so Buzz Lightyear is actually telling us overcome our limit.

A Year is just a year

Don’t you find it amusing when new year got nothing to do with our life but we celebrate it like it’s someone’s birthday or maybe more than a birthday party though. We didn’t even celebrate earth’s birthday. Heck, we didn’t even know when she’s born scientifically.

New year symbolize start of new period time. Or well, you could say that the earth has successfully revolves around the sun once more. A new hope, a new momentum, a new resolution, renewed dream, renewed purpose and etc are often appeared during new year’s eve moment. We’re not saying that it is wrong. We’re not the one judging here. But, resolution, dream, or hope could be made anytime and you could start to achieve it anytime too.

“Wars come and go, but my soldiers stay eternal”

xXx: The Next Level

Of a million sentences out there, somehow this quotes make it to our head and pop out suddenly. We don’t know how it connected to a new year but let’s say people’s life don’t based on new year but on their birthday. Okay, you’re getting out of your track. We mean let’s say that wars are happening randomly with a random period and let’s pretend that wars in this context is our conflict in each of our life then my soldiers is our soul, it stays together with us.

Maybe the conflict itself didn’t need to be problem, it could our path to our success, or some random things severing our life. You could solve it anytime if you starting to solve it or you could working on your dreams anytime you want. Maybe not that literally but you could achieve your dream if you start it. No one knows you will get it but everyone knows you won’t reach your goals if you didn’t start it at all.

Anyway, Happy New Year. Should have start it with a happy mood in the new year, ain’t we? Do you start your new year with a positive attitude?
