Mengejar Mimpi

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.

Terkadang, mimpi tidak akan tercapai dengan mudah, atau tidak secepat yang kamu kira. Atau mungkin tidak tercapai sama sekali. Tapi tidak pernah ada yang salah dengan bermimpi, perjuangkanlah mimpimu sebisa mungkin. Bermimpilah, seolah kamu akan hidup selama-lamanya.

Manusia hanya bisa berusaha. Pada akhirnya, saya percaya bahwa yang menentukan waktu yang tepat atau adalah Allah. Mungkin bisa lebih cepat, atau lebih lama dari yang kita duga. Tapi percayalah bahwa setiap kejadian telah diatur oleh Tuhan dan Dia-lah yang lebih tahu waktu yang tepat untuk kita.

Sejak SMP, saya bermimpi untuk bersekolah di Jepang. Sejak kelas VIII atau IX, bahkan, saya beberapa kali mengunjungi Japan Education Fair, mencari informasi ke Kedubes Jepang di Indonesia, bahkan mengunjungi kantor salah satu universitas Jepang yang dulu sempat saya idam-idamkan.

Bertahun-tahun pun berlalu, saya pun bersekolah di SMA 8 Jakarta, berkuliah di FE UI. Terasa semakin jauh dari mimpi itu. Tapi saya tidak pernah melepaskan mimpi itu. Saya selalu yakin bahwa suatu hari nanti, saya akan bisa menginjakkan kaki saya di Jepang.

And now, here I am. In the country of my dream. Menurut saya, inilah salah satu keajaiban dari bermimpi. Beberapa orang menyebutnya 'semesta mendukung'. Ketika kita mengharapkan sesuatu, terus berharap akan hal itu dan tentunya diiringi dengan berbagai usaha, maka semesta akan mendukung. Menurut saya, hubungan vertikal dengan Tuhan juga memiliki andil dalam hal ini. Saya percaya, semesta mendukung karena Tuhan mendukung. Karena Allah mendukung. Untuk mendapat dukungan-Nya, tentu kita harus selalu berharap pada-Nya, bersyukur, dan berusaha meniatkan mimpi kita di jalan-Nya.

Sekarang, ketika salah satu mimpi saya sudah tercapai, apa yang akan saya lakukan? Bersyukur, sudah pasti. Lalu apa? Saya ingin keliling dunia. Misinya bagaimana? Pertama, saya ingin berlibur ke Korea di bulan Februari ini, kemudian saya ingin melanjutkan S2 di Eropa. Mungkin tidak akan mudah. Tapi bermimpi tidak pernah salah bukan?

Saya hanya bisa berusaha, sisanya biarkan Allah yang menentukan. Semoga, saya bisa meniatkan mimpi ini di jalan Allah, dan berharap hanya pada Allah. Bismillah. Semoga Allah mendukung :)

Wassalamualaikum wr. wb.

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…
