Life of an egg


“Hi, my name is Bob. Soon, I will be a chicken egg. The time has come. Prepare yourself cause I’m about to rock your world.” Thought Bob. Bob really excited when he got laid but seconds later, his vision darker and it’s getting warmer. He screams as loud as he could but he didn’t know that he is brooded by his creator or so-called mom. He counting the days until he got a chance to adventure into the world. Some day he see sunrise and sunset and the other day he spent in full darkness. 3 weeks later, he feel unwell. Something’s cracking and then another creature pop out from his body. He is really shocked at the moment and lose his consciousness forever.

Thanks for dropping by, I’m really craving for some suggestion to improve this post. This is kind of my first flash-fiction story so I hope you like it 😀

That would be better

I should take the other option.

Most of us often think this way, aren’t we, when something unexpectedly going wrong. We said that based on the storyline after we pick an option. Well, it’s not a fully wrong idea. But, what if the outcome will be equal because the story didn’t happen exactly the same.

It’s good to realize something’s going wrong but it’s not good if we cling to our mistakes. Mistakes in the past will be our jokes in the future. But, don’t have too much of it or your life itself will be a joke. Mistakes itself is a real-life experience and it’s usually last longer than some warning from friends or family.

We skipped class once and guess what’s happen. Our teacher discuss problems that will come out on final exam. We don’t really regret though at that time because we believe we will overslept too in the class. TeHe~

Anyway, we’re trying to say we’re human afterall, we often make mistakes. In fact, we love to choose silly action based on irrational judgement or false assumption.

Sepenggal pengalaman di Pati

24 Mei 2016, Julivius bersama 6 teman lainnya mendapatkan kesempatan untuk berbaur dengan warga desa Karangsari terlebih dahulu. Mereka bertugas untuk mempersiapkan kedatangan 47 mahasiswa Buddhis lainnya.

Selama 2 hari, mereka mengunjungi warga-warga desa untuk menyebarkan informasi serta menyesuaikan rencana yang telah dibuat sebelumnya dengan kondisi desa Karangsari. Singkat cerita, acara live-in DDB 2016 yang dimulai pada tanggal 26 Mei 2016 dan berakhir pada tanggal 30 Mei 2016 berjalan dengan cukup baik.

Kunjungan yang dilakukan oleh 53 mahasiswa yang tergabung dalam KMB ITB bermaksud untuk memberikan inspirasi serta harapan bagi warga desa untuk tetap berjalan dalam Dhamma. Namun kenyataan berkata lain, ketimbang menginspirasi warga desa, saya sendiri lebih merasa terinspirasi oleh warga desa.

Awalnya tindakan mereka cukup sulit untuk dipahami. Makanan yang cukup banyak malah dikatakan apa adanya. Makanan ringan selalu tersedia. Kehidupan pedesaan yang dikatakan banyak kekurangan walaupun kenyataannya lebih banyak dari yang dimiliki oleh kehidupan rata-rata mahasiswa.

Akan tetapi hal yang mereka lakukan sebenarnya sangatlah wajar mengingat waktu peserta tinggal hanyalah 5 hari. Tentunya tidak banyak dari warga desa yang kerap menerima orang yang belum dikenal untuk menginap di rumah mereka. Kesediaan mereka untuk menyediakan tempat tinggal dan bahkan meminjamkan kendaraan untuk peserta sudah menjadi salah satu bukti kerendahan hati serta kesederhanaan warga desa Karangsari.

Hidup di desa Karangsari juga mengajarkan bahwa tersedianya banyak hiburan seperti di kota tidak menjamin hidup yang bahagia. Hidup di desa Karangsari mengajarkan bagaimana hidup damai serta hidup bersyukur. Hidup di desa Karangsari juga mengajarkan bahwa apa yang kita pikir kita butuhkan belum tentu benar-benar kita butuhkan.

Bersamaan dengan ini, saya ingin berterima kasih kepada seluruh pihak yang telah membantu DDB 2016 khususnya warga desa Karangsari yang telah memberikan kesempatan kepada kami untuk berbuat baik serta kesediannya untuk menerima kunjungan peserta DDB 2016.

Imperfect post

Nobody is perfect, isn’t it? To be honest, what is perfect? Well, according to Mr Google, perfection is the condition, state or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects. Now, how come somebody being free from all flaws. Even though there’s a perfect thing out there, do we perceive it as a perfect thing. Well, with our imperfect eyes itself, we won’t see it as a perfect thing, don’t you say.

But on the other side, I still believe that there’s a way to become perfect. To become perfect, you need to be nobody. I’m sorry for the unintended pun. When no one judge you, you could say that you are perfect, right? We need to be more selfless, we need to realize that we are just one out of seven billion people in the world.

“The power of one man doesn’t amount too much. But, with whatever little strength I’m capable of.. I’ll do everything humanly possible to protect the people I love, and in turn they’ll protect the ones they love. It seems like the least we tiny humans can do for each other.” ~Roy Mustang

PS: This is truly a perfect post

Small crossroads?

Crossroads. The point where two roads meet. At least that’s what the dictionary said.

Crossroads on the other hand means a point in your life when you have to make an important decision. Or is it that important?

Well, our experience said the otherwise. It’s not that important and huge decision that will determine the future. Our future is determined by our small step every day, every hour every minute and every second. Whether you choose to snooze morning alarm or to wake up and start your day. Whether you take notes or sleep in class. Whether you smile or frown. Those each actions would determine the outcome. Yes, life is uncertain but there is an old saying “Those who do evil, although the disaster has not yet arrived, but fortune has been away from it. Those who do good, though fortune has not arrived, but the disaster has been away from it.”

Have a nice day

Earth Hour? Or is it?

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement for the planet organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature. The event is held worldwide annually encouraging individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.

Earth hour itself started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2,2 millions homes and businesses turned their light off for one hour to make their stand against the climate change.

The standard Earth Hour ’60’ logo represents the 60 minutes of Earth Hour where we focus on the impact we are having on our planet and take positive action to address the environmental issues we face. For Earth Hour 2011 the ‘60+’ logo was introduced representing a commitment to add to Earth Hour a positive act for the planet that goes beyond the hour. Take up the ‘plus’ and get involved with Earth Hour Blue.

That’s what I found when I search earth hour briefly. A lot of my friends really support the movement while the rest of them is opposed to it. For me, earth hour is a great movement, it makes people realize that each of us could determine our future together. Earth hour propaganda shout out the NGOs related to environmental protection and Earth Hour movement is more universal, it could be done by all of us.

But, nothing’s perfect, isn’t it? When you turn off your lights, what kind of lighting will you use to face the darkness? Candles or flashlight? Either way, it still uses energy meanwhile Earth Hour is made to raise awareness of energy issues. In addition, people who don’t really understand the background become more narcissistic. They really believes that turning off their lights for one hour giving a big impact.

At the end, we need Earth Hour to influence the government. We need public policy and infrastructure development to be improved, to be more sustainable. We who questions Earth Hour movement need to educate other people so government would be influenced too in the end.
