On Life Updates

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.

Intern Life
So, I'm currently working at a local consulting firm as an intern. I started around three weeks ago and I will have my internship finished in the beginning of March. Having the the "normal weeks" for working people: working in weekdays; taking the train and buses during rush hours; relaxing and taking countless hours of sleep during the weekend; etc, is now my new routine. Ah, except for the fact that I am working overtime almost every working-day.

Anyway, lessons learned from the internship:
  1. Looking at those tired faces of people who board the train/bus at night, I can somehow understand that almost every one of them strive for a living. Despite the problems they face at work, they can't just run away since there's this huge responsibility placed upon their shoulders. 
  2. There might as well be time for me to be one of those people (in point 1), and for the sake of my sanity I will have to be able to find sources of happiness over all those seemingly boring world of adults. I guess, I need to try enjoying every tiny bits of enjoyable things I find. That's why I lip-sync and make faces when I'm in the bus, do some small dancing moves in the hallway when no one's watching, and leave my desk to get fresh air every now and then. It's so fun, btw, haha.
  3. In work, you might meet people whose personality you might super-loathe yet you can not opt to get away from. You might as well unable to ignore them since it'd be extremely uncomfortable. Haha. But that's when I personally learn how to "handle" different types of people and how I should never be like them.
University Life
I still have my thesis proposal in the process of being reviewed by the lecturer, in case you are wondering. And that particular thing is constantly increasing my insecurity and nervousness as the number of my friends whose proposals have already been reviewed (thus, enable them to know whether they can continue on with the topic and get their own adviser) seems to increase exponentially (lol). Maybe it's delayed because God reminds me not to be haughty over anything, since I remember how I told my friends who were doing their thesis something like how they could be so stressed over a matter that seems to be doable in a few months. But then, again, I believe that God has the best timing for everything and all I need to do is trying my best and see how God wants it to work. Maybe I need to pray more and get myself closer to Him so that I can get over this anxiety. 

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…
