Dramatic (less) Life

As drama lover, I saw many dramatic scenes which I don’t want to imagine if my life turn down like them. That’s why I prefer a realistic plot drama to extraordinary life.

As School Counselor of High School, I have seen many problems which appear because of their own self. Everyone have problem, but their attitude is whats really matter.

Moreover for my teenagers student, how responsive they are, just make their own problem become bigger and too complicated to solve. That’s the reason why I am here beside them 😊

Pan to Soup to Neko biyori is one of my favorite example of facing big problem with calm attitude. Let me tell you a lot of things about this relaxing drama πŸ˜„

This drama told about a life of Aki-chan, 40something woman who just lost her mother because accidental fall in toilet. She worked in publishing company where led her to meet Sensei.

Then, everything start when she choose to resign from their work because of the new management things which not suitable with her. That decision led her to reopen her mother eating place (too simple to called it as restaurant).

Aki chan’s struggle starts here. How she deals with the pain of losing her Mother, giving up of her career, and facing her life. Her choice to open her style of eating place is another journey to discover her self.

And at that time being, someone from her mother’s past come and give another shocking news. How she deal with that shocking fact is completely awesome!

I love how she deals with everything. Keep calm and cool. No hard feeling, no drama. She is her and she is accepting her own self completely. Her compassion of her own life is cool!


This drama is somekind of relaxing vibe for me. Sometimes when I starts acting out like drama queen, I play this 4-lenghts- episodes dorama and relax my drama side.
I choose to be as cool as Aki chan, even though that’s pretty hard. But, I will living my life as dramaticless as her.

Good bye, drama queen~! πŸ˜„

PS: They have a cute OST! []

A Tale of Strong Woman

Sebenarnya saya tidak terlalu suka membaca otobiografi. Somehow, su’udzon saya, autobiography show some kind of arrogancy. Padahal enggak juga, saya aja yang nyinyir πŸ˜›
But, this book don’t show it at all. Otobiografi ini ditulis sedemikian rupa hingga serasa membaca novel. Sangat mengalir dan menyenangkan.

Saya selalu tertarik dengan cerita tentang wanita, perempuan yang memikul tanggung jawab moral dan sosial dari perannya, menjadi dewasa dan kuat dari proses panjang meskipun melelahkan.

Buku ini menceritakan satu dari banyak perempuan hebat yang sangat menginspirasi. Seorang perempuan kuat dari Cina-Amerika dalam Otobiografinya, Menekuk tanpa Menjadi Patah (Bend not Break) Continue reading

Merdeka dari Apa?

Karena masih bulan Agustus jadi, anggap saja postingan ini dalam rangka kemerdekaan Indonesia πŸ˜…

Baru akhir pekan kemarin saya bisa menyempatkan diri menonton film Hunger Games: Mockingjay part 2. Sudah bukan film trend lagi tapi apalah daya, saya memang selalu menjadi orang yang ga up-to-date.

Seperti yang diketahui para penikmat Trilogi Hunger Games, Katniss selalu mengambil sikap yang tak terduga, anti-mainstream kalau kata anak sekarang. Menunjukkan sikap tidak kooperatif, meledak-ledak, spontan, dan sesuka kehendaknya.

Dan ending Hunger Games yang twisting inilah, yang menurut hemat saya paling seru. Entah mengapa, setelah menonton scene klimaksnya membuat saya berpikir dalam tentang banyak hal.

***

Saat saya menangani kasus bullying siswa saya, cerita Hunger Games, distrik 13, dan Katniss adalah perumpamaan yang sering saya gunakan. Orang-orang baik perlu berkumpul dan mengorganisir langkahnya untuk menghentikan perilaku buruk orang-orang yang egois.

Beresiko tapi itulah cara yang perlu diambil. Maka, perlu berkumpul diam-diam untuk menyatukan suara sehingga bisa memperbaiki keadaan. Namun, lalu kemudian apa?

Menghukum pembully dengan dibully seperti perilaku mereka? Continue reading

Romantic-Comedy Drama?

After a long time not being able to review anything, akhirnya saya bisa (mengumpulkan tekad untuk) mereview drama kocak yang sudah saya tonton ini. Bahagianyaa~ XD

Sejujurnya, saya tidak suka drama dengan genre romantic-comedy. Drama keluarga, aksi, dan perang yang dinamis atau sedih berlinang air mata lebih saya sukai. Kenapa? Karena drama rom-com biasanya (atau memang pakemnya?) punya cerita yang lovey-dovey ala orang kasmaran yang bikin ieuhh gitu *ceritanya lagi nyinyir padahal baper 😜

Akan tetapi, dua drama (jepang) rom-com yang saya tonton ini agak anomali. Ga lovey-dovey sama sekali, walaupun ga bikin iri dan nyinyir, tetap saja bikin baper. Hawa “I feel you”nya terlalu pekat 😁

So, this is it, dua rom-com asyik yang saya tonton serta sukses bikin baper dan hati berasa bolong (apalagi pas nulis post ini di kereta, pasangan muda yang sedang hamil di depan saya tampak lovey-dovey sekali) *alah.. Continue reading

Afraid of Future

“Apa yang kamu cari, mal?”
Saya tahu, mata mereka berkata demikian saat saya mengungkapkan keinginan saya. Aneh. Hidup saya sekarang ini adalah kehidupan yang menyamankan. Safe zone. Bekerja dengan gaji yang baik. Pekerjaan yang menyenangkan. Kolega dan teman kerja yang asyik dan akrab. Apalagi yang saya minta sebenarnya.

Tetapi bukan masa depan macam ini yang saya impikan. Bukan rutinitas dan kehidupan macam ini yang saya petakan. Bukan kehidupan yang terlalu nyaman seperti ini. Aneh. Sekali lagi, aneh. Mata mereka berkata demikian. Menggetarkan tekad saya. Saya tergoda, saya goyah. Continue reading

My life colours

4824-home-se32This is my song for almost half full year. My ringtone. I think, my reflection too. I have found a lot of meaning inside and I am glad to share the joy I found in it.

I have found my self as a tiny, little, weak, and powerless person. I found my self can’t do anything big either make huge effect like others, especially like president one. I have found society is damage, worse and worst, need hand to change, and I want to be a helping hand. But, even though I give everything what I have,what I can, that never be enough. I am just like a dust in Sahara. Meaningless and useless.

That powerless feeling had been comforted by this song. This song is like considering me, understanding me, even though life seems so untouchable, that’s fine. That kind of feeling and other kind of laughter which I have, give many colors to my life. That’s fine and keep going!

And, voila this is it! Irodori by Mr.Children!! Continue reading
