When Your Time Is Up

Beberapa hari belakangan ini gue sering memikirkan tentang kematian. Well, nggak tahu kenapa, belakangan ini rasanya semakin banyak aja orang yang meninggal. Mulai dari Pak Widjadono, suaminya Ibu Ayu, sampai papa temennya Ica yang jadi salah satu korban Sukhoi SJ100. Somehow, those made me scared of death.

Pada hakikatnya, manusia itu diciptakan di muka bumi untuk menjadi khalifah Allah, kemudian menyembah-Nya, dan pada saatnya nanti akan dikembalikan lagi ke sisi-Nya. Lalu, apa sih yang membuat kita takut dan tidak siap? Jujur, hingga saat ini gue belum siap menghadapi kematian, dan belum siap juga untuk menghadapi kehilangan orang yang dekat, seperti keluarga. Padahal, sebenarnya semua manusia tahu bahwa hal ini suatu hari pasti menimpa mereka.

Jadi, kenapa takut? Mudah saja sebenarnya, manusia yang masih takut mati itu merasa demikian karena mereka sadar telah berdosa. Gue takut meninggal karena sadar masih punya banyak dosa. Karena kita punya banyak dosa, maka kita takut akan siksaan yang nanti harus kita alami setelah kematian. Logically, ketika kita sudah yakin memiliki bekal yang cukup untuk bertemu-Nya, lantas untuk apa takut? Well, itulah sebenarnya yang harus kita persiapkan. Jangan sampai ketika waktu kita di dunia sudah berakhir, kita terlambat menyiapkan segala bekal itu. That's why, setiap harinya kita harus berusaha sebaik mungkin untuk menjalankan kehendak Allah dan menjauhi larangan-Nya. Easy to say, yes, but not that easy to do. 

Ya Allah, semoga saya dan seluruh keluarga saya meninggal dalam keadaan yang baik, khusnul khotimah, dan dibebaskan dari siksa kubur serta api neraka. Amiin.

Soundtracks of my life :)

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.
If this were a Facebook status, I'd write "I'm feeling nostalgic". 
I am currently listening to old songs on my laptop; the songs I used to download as mp3s long before Spotify existed. Songs which I used to listen throughout the different stages of my life, each of those subconsciously linked to certain memories. On this post, I'll list them all in an orderly manner, just for fun. (Feels like it's been such a long time since I did something "just for fun", haha).
Here we go!
Junior High School
Start of Something New - High School Musical We Are One - Lion King Koko Dake No Hanshi - Prince of Tennis
I used to be obsessed with Lion King (don't think the obsession ceased up until now) and listened to its songs almost everyday after school. Since I did not have fast internet connection and couldn't download any mp3s at that time, I listened to the songs on my tape by playing the movie's VCD. I knew exactly at which minu…

Kagami Seira!!! (yeah, apparently dating Yamapi)

I wanna share some info about my brand-new IDOL!! hahahahaha!!! well, as you can read on the title, i said that she's apparently dating yamapi, right? well, maybe that's true, hahaha. it's an a bit out-dated news though. the rumor spreads widely about in september '09. because of that rumour, i searched for any info regarding their relationship. and of course, her personal info, hahaha. and then i saw one of her music vid, titled 'kaleidoscope'. in that vid she was so cute. and then i saw her other music vid titled 'first sight ft. ryohei', and i fell in love with that song! hahahaha! it took a quite long time for me to search for her mp3, and i ended up downloading her full single which includes 'super special' in it. and yesterday, i downloaded her first full-album titled 'celebration' and i don't regret it, hahaha. because her songs are cool. well, not all of them, but overall they're still cool. her voice is beautiful too, be…

Things That I am Grateful for in 2017

Assalamu'alaikum wr. wb.
Today marks the first day of 2018, thus 2017 had officially ended. 
I think it feels great to have a feeling of starting anew again, since 2017 was not that great for me. I personally think that I didn't accomplish that many things last year, and it really made me feel bitter; empty and unsatisfied. However, as life goes on, I need to move forward and turn the bitterness of 2017 into lessons, while still being grateful of the little things in 2017 that made me feel happy. So, here comes the list of what I am grateful for, and in the next post I will share the things that I wish I did differently in 2017.
I am grateful that I was engaged. Back in early April 2017, my boyfriend told me that he would like to talk to my dad and ask him if he can marry me. This did not come off as shocking to me because I knew that one day that time would come, but I did become a little bit emotional when I actually saw him talking earnestly to my parents about wanting to m…
