I can't thank the universe enough for letting me know every one of you. It's been a pleasure to get to know you guys, and to hear your stories. I'm so grateful and honoured to be given this chance. •
Good luck dear Rafi, Anet, Ali, Icha, Ratih, and Zeta in your Host-Country. Remember that it's not a year in a life, but a life in a year, right? I believe you guys will do good. I'm looking forward to meet you at the reorientation next year, and can't wait to hear your stories!
Warm regards for Kakak-kakak GL dan GLL. My source of fun for the entire week 😂😂😂😂. It's been a wonderful moment, and everyone knows it all that it is not enough to hear all of your stories in a short time. The memories will remain and I'll keep it in the one and only eternal storage: my heart ❤️.
And special thanks to @hasnaa.naya
for encouraging me to become a GL this year, and I completely did not regret that. Much love Nay! 💕
Till we meet again everyone!
P.S: Moon miip kalo ada yang ga ketag, nda bisa tag semua hihi.
P.P.S: Actually sangat sedih karena Kak @hasnaa.naya dan @itserickkk_ udah balik duluan dan ga ikut foto. Tapi kalian ada dihato selalu 💓
Dengan memanfaatkan segala kekuatan "gouden uur", janjian dresscode ala anak kelas 3A berlanjut.
Dresscode hari ini: Kondangan.
Alasan lainnya adalah karena kita ingin bikin anak 3B iri, jadi kita tanding dresscode di class meeting besok, de laatste dag van de zomercursus Nederlands in het ETC. Tema besok? Wisuda.
Karena zomercursus di het ETC belum lengkap rasanya kalau tidak janjian mengenakan dresscode ala-ala musim panas, sebab musim panas merupakan hari bermain gembira, sang gajah terkena flu pilek tiada henti-hentinya.
Meskipun sudah berlalu sejak beberapa minggu lalu, nampaknya masih diperkenankan untuk mengunggah foto ini. Terima kasih banyak saya haturkan kepada para ondel-ondel Jawa ini atas kesempatannya untuk bekerja sama dalam membina cikal bakal berdirinya Persatuan Ondel-Ondel Seluruh Indonesia. •
Terima kasih kepada @aloysiusefraim selaku Ketua Dewan Pengurus PERONDELI atas jerih payahnya dalam mengordinir kami dan juga anak-anak menggemaskan penuh keunikan yang ada di foto ketiga.
Terima kasih juga kepada setiap ondel-ondel OAOC namun maaf tidak bisa diucapkan satu-satu karena keknya ga muat ini kolom caption. Pokoknya makasi ya kakak-kakak. Sampai jumpa EOS!
Btw, CC Kak @heidyutami , @gabrielelouisee bersedia ni jadi PO EOS 😁😁😁
“Everything happens for a reason.”
Hang the DJ episode from Black Mirror Season 4 said.
I just had a quite adventurous yet wonderful dream. When I woke up, I was exhausted, and that's what happened when I had a vivid dream. Yes, that dream was 'that' vivid cause I even presumed it was a real event.
My Papa appeared in that dream, through the whole adventures. It felt so real. The details were amazing and it depicted everything about my Papa. I must've missed him that much.
Couple months ago, I had a mental breakdown. I needed someone to call, to share my thoughts with, but no one was suitable enough (because that time, my mind kept saying nobody would understand my condition except my Papa). That moment, I cried because I desperately requested God to put me through a phone call with my Papa, which was impossible.
But God did not let me down. He did inform my Papa about my condition because Papa came to my dream the same night.
And in this last dream I just had, Papa was there. He was always by my side throughout the whole adventures. He did not want to leave me and always there, supporting me outsmarting every given tasks in every obstacles.
The weird thing is, he only watched me finishing the given tasks without helping. But he stayed. He never left. And apparently, I finished all the tasks all by myself.
I realised, God and Papa was trying to send me a message. They wanted to tell me that I can do everything by myself, and with the help from my surroundings, from the people I love.
Papa wanted me to know that even though I couldn't see his physical appearance, his soul is tethered in my heart, eternally. He will not leave me and my family. He's always watching.
Like I said, everything happens for a reason and the main reason my life hasn't ended is because I'm not here to fail him yet, and I won't let my old man down cause he's always here through my ups and downs.
I love you Papa, always.
Soon! @statementsbyproud x @ardhitopramono.

Pardon my awkward smile. It's just a fan's facial expression while meeting his favourite singer.
Foto kedua janjiannya ekspresi fierce, but I've been betrayed, apparently.
Today is precisely two years since your last day on this earth. Two years since everything about you turned from the present tense into past tense. But I’m not going to say anything in past tense because you’re still alive in our heart.
Time flies, Pap, isn’t it?
Time flies as we do our daily routines as unconscious as it is.
A lot of things have changed, a lot. I’m starting my third year in the university now. The last time you saw me, I was still in freshman year.
I tell you what: there were some moment when I cried because I heard a car engine's sound in our neighbourhood at night & I thought it was you coming home from your arduous work. I was waiting for you knocking the door, but it was nothing.
Knowing you can’t physically be here hurts me. I’ve been through a lot of ups and downs without you, Papa.
Pah, for me, life is like reading a book. You can't thoroughly understand the story by skipping it to the end page. Instead, you've to enjoy the reading process from page to page.
See? It’s like this life. You can’t skip your day to the next day when you’re not having a good day.
Can you imagine what will happen ‘if’ you could skip the book of your life to the next page? I think you’ll never understand the rest page of your life.
Honestly, I don’t know why I’m telling you this, Papa. I think I just want to share how I’m seeing this life now.
I truly am sorry, Papa, if I still have not fulfilled your expectations. You told me to be kind, you told me to be nice to everyone, you told me not to lose temper and not to use anger to solve anything because it wouldn’t work, and I am sorry, because I often disobey what you’ve told.
It must be difficult for you, for having me as a son. As you know I probably am the most stubborn kid you’ve ever encountered (blame this two user-user I have, hahaha). I think it’s because I’ve always been different since Mama gave birth to me, Papa. I’m not like the other kids. Until now, even. I’ve always been having different way of thinking.
I actually don’t want to stop telling you how things are going on now, but in another moment perhaps.
Doei, Papa! I love you, forever and always.
We, humans are actually faceless.
And we, humans, have so many fictitious faces.
But actually, we have one face, one true face, at last.
Every day, we have to decide which face are we going to wear for the sake of getting along in the 'society'. Sometimes, few people got lost.
They can't decide which face to wear, then uncontrollably changing their face from time to time, until they don't know their true face anymore.
Therefore, they became the many faces, whose true identity is uncertain.
Wherever and whenever you are, your true self will show you the right face, the right one. It's your true colour, and what you need to do is be kind, and always spread the smile for every single living creature you meet.
*trying to write my thoughts down, because I'm still in shock and still broken for what happened after I finished reading the last sentence of this book*
This book is less than 400 pages. Should be easy for me to read this only with one sit reading, in a day. But it wasn't the matter of the number of the pages, that made me finish this book in several days. It was because I chose not to. Not to finish this book that quick.
Even though I was craving about how the story in this book would end, I didn't want to rush things. I didn't want to "only read" this book, but I wanted "to live" in every words written by @madeline.e.miller.
All praise to her work, to this debut book that she created for ten years. She poured everything she had in her mind beautifully, perfectly, to this book. Her effort for ten years did not come out as a failure, at all. I regard her, I praise her for this diamond.
She wrote this book through Patroclus' point of view, and as I read it, I felt the soul of him lives inside it. I felt that this book was written by him, by Patroclus himself. And I am broken. My heart is still broken. I actually didn't want to finish it, but it's happened. It's finished.
I do still want to read more about what's happening between Patroclus and Achilles. I want to know their stories, trough the brilliant work of Ms. Miller. How I love the way she depicted their stories, flawlessly, perfectly.
She said that in other stories, Patroclus was such an underdog, and she wanted to give him a voice, to let people know how he's been through all his life, and she did it! Patroclus is a hero, even Briseis told Achilles that Patroclus was worth ten of Achilles. I love how she retells the Trojan War. For those things, I couldn't stop thanking Madeline Miller, for this divine work. Thank you, thank you, thank you. “In the darkness, two shadows, reaching through the hopeless, heavy dusk. Their hands meet, and light spills in a flood like a hundred golden urns pouring out of the sun.”

[Balada Paket Liburan Binabud 3/4]
Sebelum adanya Balada Orienas, sudah ada balada ini terlebih dahulu. Yesss, On Arrival Orientation Camp. Sangat menyenangkan bisa berada di kepanitiaan ini dengan sister sister yang asupan mecinnya kuat, tak lain dan tak bukan karena PO nya adalah Bandar Micin yakni Kak Risvi. Big thanks kak Risvi yang udah nembak aku (bukan, bukan buat jadi pacar tapi buat jadi anak perlap) untuk ikut kepanitiaan OAOC tahun ini. Senang sekali bisa bertemu exchange students dari berbagai negara, dan menjadi salah satu orang Indonesia yang pertama kali mereka temui. Mereka lucu-lucu banget, dan for the first time, saya merasakan kontak langsung dengan adanya language barrier. Senang bisa mengajari budaya-budaya Indonesia yang menurut orang luar sangatlah aneh dan juga unik. Semoga tahun depan tidak ada halangan untuk jadi panitia EOS karena kepengen banget ngeliat perkembangan dan apa saja yang sudah dilalui anak-anak ini selama 10 bulan di Indonesia. So, here are the pictures with me and micin committees and some of my beloved exchange students!
Semoga kalian memiliki tahun yang menyenangkan di Indonesia! [#AFSEffect#DWP2017#DesaWisataProject2017#AFSIndonesia#BinaAntarbudaya#Binabud#OAOC2017#AFS#Volunteer @binaantarbudaya]
