i bring a journal almost everywhere i go (yeah whatever, my secret's out), and i doodle in it a lot, especially in class. (well it's better than sleeping in class. at least i'm listening to the lecture.) but i don't write anything particularly important in it.
i have no idea why my recent posts are in english a lot, i guess i just ramble easier in english.
i have no idea why i can never concentrate enough in my classes..
well i do concentrate, mind you, for a good hour in the beginning. but as classes progress i seem to lose interest.
i can never understand why my campus can schedule classes from 7 to 11.30 am straight without any break.
because i, for one, just can't keep up with it.
i'm not complaining that it makes me tired, i just feel that it's not effective for me who has an incredibly short-attention span.
i have no idea why i can never study even when some freakin important exam is just around the corner.
i have no idea why i can lounge in bed for hours doing nothing.
i have no idea why i can have not-particularly-important conversations and just laugh on ourselves for hours with him.
i have no idea why i can't get myself to thoroughly read all those thick textbooks and slides i have, while i can actually devour dozens of comics or BSC books less than a day.
but i accept all these facts of my lousy laziness, however appalling they seem.
i really do try to change. and it's not like i do all that all freaking 24 hours of my day.
and it's not like i don't do anything else worthwhile.
i watch a lot of movies. and i don't cut class to do so. and i write the reviews too (although obviously some late. whatever.)
i join in my friends for study group sessions, eventhough i sleep through most of it. whatever. i can't help myself. i'm human, i have flaws.
i'll go back to sleep now.

kalo film Indonesia entah kenapa gue ga bisa ngasih rating bintang2 ato apalah.. sigh.
film ini kayak documenter gitu tentang break dancers dan perjuangan2 mereka buat ikutan Battle of The Year, pertandingan antar crew paling bergengsi di seluruh dunia gitu.
focus filmnya sih cuman ke tim dari Jepang, South Korea, USA, France, sama Jerman. high point: pas pertandingannya! sumpah, keren2 banget!!
okay, next, Doa Yang Mengancam..
yang ini juga ngebosenin.. hff.. kalo kata Ichsan, entah kenapa rasanya ada yang ngeganjel di filmnya.. ga tau kenapa janggal aja.
This ain't the honeymoon
Past the infatuation phase
Right in the thick of love
At times we get sick of love
It seems like we argue everyday
I know i misbehave
And you make your mistakes
But we both still got room left to grow
And though love sometimes hurts
I still put you first
And we'll make this thing work
But I think we should take it slow
We're just ordinary people
We don't know which way to go
Cuz we're ordinary people
Maybe we should take it slow
This time we'll take it slow
This time we'll take it slow
This ain't a movie, no
No fairy tale conclusion ya'll
It gets more confusing everyday
Sometimes it's heaven sent
Then we head back to hell again
We kiss then we make up on the way
I hang up, you call
We rise and we fall
And we feel like just walking away
As our love advances
We take second chances
Though it's not a fantasy
I Still want you to stay
Maybe we'll live and learn
Maybe we'll crash and burn
Maybe you'll stay, maybe you'll leave, maybe you'll return
Maybe another fight
Maybe we won't survive
But maybe we'll grow
We never know baby you and I
Ordinary People - John Legend
i told you i'd write it down for you.. =)

met a lot of relatives and else that i haven't met in a while..
but oh some nice surprises!
i (briefly) met my little cousins from my mom's sister..
and oh how they've grown!
gosh they grow so fast.. (i sound old)
this year my family didn't go back to our hometown, as it is custom for Indonesian people to do that on Idul Fitri.
instead, we had a sort of open house and people from our neighborhood just went pouring in.
i didn't recognize more than half of the kids from our neighborhood that came to our house, i don't know whether that's a bad sign or not.
anyways, it was nice to see everybody who came over, and i'm grateful for that.
another nice surprise, around a week ago a childhood friend of mine from Arizona suddenly sent me a message on facebook and we've been messaging back and forth since.
it's great to get back in touch with her and i'm really excited about that.
so overall, it was a nice Lebaran for me, and i hope it was for you too..
again, happy Idul Fitri (although it passed already) and please forgive all my mistakes..
p.s. after this holiday, exams are coming up and frankly i am NOT looking forward to that. (curhat colongan)
i'm trying not to think about it much and just enjoy this holiday as much as possible.
exams = think about it later yod!
holiday = enjoying it while it lasts..
(i'm such a procrastinator)
