Celebrating 3 Years in Japan

Everyone loves a cheesy anniversary post right? Though I forgot the exact date, but this April marks three years of me setting my giant foot in the Land of the Rising Sun; Japan!

Dat-Nostalgia

So many things happened in three years. I still remember back in Indonesia, December 2010. I was at friend’s house, chilling like a boss, suddenly got a message from Dad telling me that the Japanese embassy tried to call my phone but no answer.

My first reaction was;

“Oh shi- did I do something wrong?”

But then he explained I got the 3 years scholarship to Japan.

And then I was like;

“Oh shi- is this even real? Three years leaving Indonesia?”

It was real. I left me homeland at the tender age of 18 years old and have been traveling ever since. #YOLO

3years2

Three years wandering in Japan, I’ve found so many things. Here, let me make a poem out of it.

From friends to love.
From foods to historical places.
From adventure to experience.
From spoiled brat to puberty.

“mm mm yeah I have no regrets.”

The Virtue of Selfishness

Aku rendah hati, bukan untuk meroket.

Aku berlindung dibalik implikasi, bukan untuk menyindir.

Aku tertawa, bukan berarti menghina.

Aku diam tak menjawab, bukan berarti aku tidak mendengar.

Aku menangis, bukan untuk mencari perhatian.

Aku menggertak, bukan berarti selamanya galak.

Semua semata-mata tindakan mendekap diri sendiri.

Mengatakan “jangan egois” kepada manusia lain, kemungkinan tidak sadar bahwasannya itu adalah salah satu bentuk keegoisan.

Egois, karena mencoba melindungi nilai “tenggang rasa” “peduli sesama” yang oleh pribadi tersebut sebagai salah satu bentuk nilai yang diyakini benar.

Egois, karena mencoba untuk mengendalikan keegoisan manusia lain dengan melarang keegoisannya.

Manusia memang egois.

Jangan dilawan, rangkul saja.

Aku barusan bilang “jangan” karena aku egois.

Pusing ya?

lol maybe it’s nothing compare to thousands of blogs out there, but I made this blog not for that purpose. Anyway, I’m so glad I didn’t give up on writing. Maybe this is the least I could do to bring, umm, humanity back to our stuff.
