The Advantages of Being Introverted

There are two types of personalities that have been a popular talk among people. Those personalities are extroverted and introverted. Which one are you? Many people assume that extroverts have easier lives because the world that we live in right now is dominated by loud noises, parties, and gossips. They also assume that being an introvert is not good because an introvert is a shy and quiet person. An introvert does not talk much and prefers going home and thinking by himself/herself. So, are you an introvert? Do you ever feel inferior because the society assesses you as a passive, weird, and useless person? Source: If another perspective is seen, introverted people are not mediocre. Some of them are even popular and inspirational people, for example: Albert Einsten, Bill Gates, Emma Watson, Michael Jordan, and Mark Zuckerberg. This article is written to show that being introverted is not negative. Instead, there are some advantages of being introverted.

Broken-Hearted is Not Always Broken

Who wants to get broken-hearted twice? NOBODY , of course. However, I felt it. What did I feel? Everyone who had experienced broken-hearted must know how it felt like. It cannot be described in words, so just feel it by yourself (LOL :D), but if you insist me on saying the feelings, yaaaah , I was feeling restless, inferior, exhausted by my own thoughts, and broken inside and outside. I kept blaming myself. I kept saying that I was the one who caused all of these problems. I kept reflecting on what had happened to me during these 3 months. Three months ago on August 6 th 2016, I was still on my community service ( Kuliah Kerja Nyata ) duty, and on that day, I was sick. I decided not to take some rest in Jogja because there were many programs that my group had to finish and I could not leave them alone. I was being too perfectionist. I wanted everything to be great and without any flaws. That was why; I forced myself to keep working without having a rest. On the other side, I exp

Self-Reflection - Biarkanlah by Raisa

Biarkanlah - Raisa Recently, this is the most played song in my playlist. I indeed like the singer, Raisa . All of her songs are my favorite. However, this song has its own special meaning for me. Sometimes, I care too much about everything happening around me. From this song, I realize that I do not have to be like that. I have to "membiarkan" or let go some matters that keep weighing my heart. Learning to let someone go from my life to have a better life might be the best way to deliver my deepest pressure. Being a little bit ego for my own happiness might be the best sentence to comfort myself.  In the end, Raisa's song lyric is true, "benar atau salah, kini tiada berarti, biarkanlah" which means whether it is right or wrong, it means nothing now, just let it go. No one won the show, even the opposite, both of us decided to give it up. So, I have to be strong and try hard to get over everything. Biarkanlah~~~ Source: barbara-hud

My Favorite Song: 7 Years - Lukas Graham

My first post will be about my favorite song. I do not have any exact genre in listening to songs, honestly. I just like any easy-listening songs that contain good meanings which can inspire me and make me become high-spirited.   Recently, I am very fond of listening to 7 years by Lukas Graham . So, here are the song and the lyrics: Once I was seven years old, my mama told me, "Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely." Once I was seven years old It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure Once I was eleven years old, my daddy told me, "Go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely." Once I was eleven years old I always had that dream, like my daddy before me So I started writing songs, I started writing stories Something about that glory just always se
