Ribuan kontradiksi semakin sesak di hati. berpasang-pasangan menyiksa dan melemparkanku ke wilayah abu-abu dimana harapan dan ketakutan berperang

hentakan kaki kuda membangunkan debu, dan chaos naik ke langit bersama jerit pilu

Lucunya, dari sini semua kesatria itu terlihat seperti khuldi
ambilkan saja satu untukku sehingga aku tak perlu bingung memilih neraka mana yang harus kumasuki...

Dan Cerita Ini Berakhir Ketika Ia Bermula

Kamis, 24 Agustus 2017

Bola mataku menyapu rajahan duka di keningmu, sesaat ketika topeng itu disentak oleh dia yang kita sama-sama sakit karenanya. Sesaat setelah itu semua tawamu runtuh di benakku. Tak ada lagi yang perlu kutanyakan. Aku tau kau, aku melihatmu… 

Dan aku juga tawarkan padamu luka itu

Beruntung langkah ini tak terseok sendirian

Mondays are tiring now.
I mentioned about taking the plant physiology course and how I was excited about it. Well, it was fun. However, the class would be from 8-11, the pract is from 1-4, on monday. By the time I finished the pract, I was worn out. Like really tired. I don't know how it could drain me so fast. Maybe because I like the course so I was concentrating hard, maybe because one of another reason like I could be mentally exhausted. Either way, this is a bad news. Three weeks into the second semester and I still haven't starting on my assignments. I have submitted the first one, it was only like 250 words of "personal expectation of what I'll learn from that one particular course". So, it wasn't really a big deal. But the coming ones are that thousands or word long, literature review, things like that. So I really have to start writing long before the deadline.
Anyway, aside from the exhaustion, the first two weeks was fine. We went to gold coast yesterday to perform angklung in an multicultural event. Gold Coast is a beautiful city. It was fun. we'll have another performance next week in Brisbane, it'll be Indonesia Independence Day celebration. I'm looking forward to it and it's a good thing that those events are in the beginning of the semester when I still have plenty of time.
I am also excited about going home at the end of this year. I know it's still like 3 months away, but I've known how time works. It flies so fast when you're busy. Before I know it, I'll be home. So I'll hang on for now and do my best.
