Sometimes when you give up something, that’s the time when you know your limit. Even the numbers are countless, but there’s a limit in your life. Time, money, your house, your age, your journey…, all has its limit.
Limitation is like you’re going forward but then suddenly a big wall is stopping you. Climb up the wall? It’s impossible, the wall has an unlimited height. So, what are you gonna do then? Take a break and be grateful for what you’ve got.
I’m working as programmer, mostly all I do is do all that stuffs remotely (read: remote working). Counting days since the past 2012, honestly, I can’t reach the 4 digits stable-salary kind of yet, but most of these times, -thanks god- it’s more than what I expected, and sometimes, it’s more than what I needed. For this kinda lifestyle, plus I live in little country called Majalengka, Indonesia, 3 digits/month (actually it always reach almost 4 digits) is more than enough, and it’s far above the minimum average salary here where I just spend below 3 USD for one time eating (with a lot foods and enough nutrition) with my wife everyday. So, the big question is, where has the rest of my money gone? 🙁 Continue reading “So.. where has my money gone?”
As I already mentioned in this post earlier, my wife is pregnant, it is 4 months as I write this post. Me and my wife decided to have a baby once we got married, and lucky us, we’ve got a baby even is still beneath my wife’s body. And here’s the logs of my wife’s pregnancy:
In the earlier weeks, her condition is in her usually condition, I mean, she doesn’t feel anything unusual or whatever. Everything goes unusual since she stepped on the 2nd week. She pukes all the time until now I write this post, she always pukes once she has eaten. Easily to feel tired.
Her weight is decrease a lot. Before pregnant, she’s maintain her weight on 54 kg, but then her weight is just 48 kg. Doctor said it’s because she pukes a lot, so no enough food goes to her body and the baby eats anything she already eaten. Because of that, she easily to feel dizzy. The blood pressure is very low as well. I feel so worry watching her like that.
Whatever happened in 2nd month, happened in 3rd month as well. No good progress related to her condition. She was hospitalized because of these. She spent 2 nights at hospital.
In two last weeks of this month, she’s very stable, her stomach looks bigger finally 😀 But…. in the very last week, her condition is worse than ever. She headache all the time, pukes once she had eaten, yet the weight is increase, finally.
And this is the 5th month, we’re counting until the birthday of our baby.
Peristiwa kemarin, yupe lagi-lagi, nyawa seseorang dianggap tidak terlalu berharga dibanding ego sekelompok fans tim sepakbola kesayangan. Tidak perlu lagi lah kita berpura-pura menyebut mereka oknum, karena memang betul mereka fans dari tim itu. Saking ngefansnya, mereka jadi buta dan edan-edanan.
Disisi lainnya, sejak panas pilgub DKI kemarin, fanatisme buta juga jadi bahan gorengan para punggawa panggung politik kita. Saling fitnah, saling hujat, dilakukan oleh para wayang orang dibawahnya. Lah pantas, para punggawa juga mencontohkannya, seakan tidak malu-malu lagi. Media sosial menjadi medianya. Seakan-akan disitulah semua kebencian mendapatkan jalan tolnya.
Para munafik dan bedebah ini. tidak lagi menjadi munafik ketika jempolnya menari-nari diatas smartphone mereka. Tak peduli betapapun tolol dan bodohnya mereka, smartphone tetaplah smartphone, dan orang bodoh pegang smartphone, tetaplah bodoh seberapapun pintarnya smartphone yang dipegang.
Akhirnya, kemarin semua gumpalan kebencian tanpa dasar itupun kemudian tertuang di atas bumi, dan berhasil menumpahkan darah seseorang hingga nyawanya kehilangan.
Apakah fanatisme pilpres bisa terealisasikan juga, seperti halnya fanatisme viking vs the jak kemarin? We’re waiting and see. Karena polanya sudah terlihat dan terarah.
Yaaaaa. kalau sudah begini kapan bisa maju nih umat? HAHAHA
Beberapa pesan dari saya:
1. Fanatisme berlebih adalah kebodohan.
2. Sibuk-sibuklah membela prinsip daripada membela figur.
3. Jangan biarkan ketololan menyerang intelektual dan daya nalar anda sampai objektifitas tergerogoti.
