Superb!

"Have courage to follow your passion--and if you don't know your what it is, realize that one reason for your existence on earth is to find it. It won't come to you through some special announcement or through a burning bush. Your life's work is to find your life's work--and then to exercise the discipline, tenacity, and hard work it takes to pursue it.

How do you know whether you are on the right path, with the right person, or in the right job? The same way you know when you're not: You feel it. Each of us has a personal call to greatness--and because ypurs is as unique to you as your fingerprint, no one can tell you what it is.

Pay attention to what makes you feel energized, connected, stimulated--what gives you your juice. Do what you love, give it back in the form of service, and you will do more than succeed. You will triumph."

quick post!

Hello, y'all! so it's been  a while after I wrote my last post, eh?
Hehehehe so how's your day? been good enough? well, mine is too.

I'm having such a hectic week.Err not to mention that any of the days wasn't good, but, yeah at least I've learned. ffiuh.

Oh ya, lately there are 3 people who are following me mihihihi thaaanks!! and it's getting crowded here in my blog, thanks for blogwalking guys <3. And I've been blogwalking too and found some amazing blogs. go see the 'friends and recommendation' please. May you get inspired. :)

Soooo, I went browsing yesterday. I actually wanted to learn more about editing photos at picnik.com buuuut, it said that I have to blablabla I couldn't understand so I closed the tab.

Then I randomly logged in to my Facebook account and...stalked.Yeah, just a few people I wish I could be close to but...okay nevermind. Then I opened my profile and scroleed down the timeline. Scroll scroll scroll, I found my old statuses, mostly show my labile-ness -__- then I read the wall. Well, at 2011 there weren't many people posted on my wall. But I was shocked looking at 2010. Wew, 3687 posts from my friends. What did I do back then? Just went online and said hi to people on facebook, eh?

But what I love the most (and what I haven't recognized until I opened the timeline yesterday) is that...on 2010, there were so many friends saying 'happy birthday' to me! Kyaaa even there are some that haven't been replied by me. I don't mean to be bigheaded or what but... Suddenly I feel loved (okay Nad, you're beyond unyu). Err really, and yes thimngs have changed. I don't talk a lot to people on facebook right now. Mostly because I don't have the same interest on it like I had two years ago. And yes, it caused by some other things too.

Facebook shows me how things change. I was just an ababil trying to be gaul and eksis (LOL, silly I know). But as time goes by, maybe, just maybe, I've grown up. Well, yeah, maturity takes a lifetime, but at least I know I'm changing. For reasons, for a better future.


Yep, this is the end of this post hehehe. I'm just gonna post some quotes too. have a blessed day in everyday, everyone! ;)

I still can eat, drink, write, think. I have my mom, dad, cousins. I have friends who support me. My blog's getting crowdy. I still have times to learn. I have papers to write. A pencil, a pen, a book. I still have internet connection. I still have my body organs work well.

I have opened chances, unseen possibilities. I still have that strength to struggle, and on, and on, and on.

There'll be so much more. Thanks for everything, Allah...
There was me. 
Sitting in a room full of books. Books I don't understand the language. The room felt cozy. It was rainy outside, but warm inside. Perfect feeling. 
I want it.

There was me. 
Walking through the corridors. Picked up a book. I knew I haven't conquered it yet. I still have to learn. 
I want it.


There was me.
Checking my voice if it was okay. Tried to sing a song, but it wasn't good enough. Guess I'd still have to learn more. 
I want it.


Sounds selfish yet so true. I want it all.

February 3, 2012

grateful? yes, I do.

Being in this such condition, more or less, slowly but sure, makes me feel like Allah has got me in a better way. A better track for me to continue my life.
Changes in me, feel awkward at the first time, but I know as time goes by I'll get used to it.

These are things why I'm so grateful.

1. A better me
Back then, I was a hyper-cheerful-girl who really liked to talk to people. Especially in school. I always said hi to people I met, though I didn't recognize them. And when I'd talk to my friends, I always went.....hyperactive. May I say that, I was an attention seeker? Of course it's not good saying not-so-good thing to ourselves, but...yeah, I was being that person. Some said it's my specialty, after a long time I know it's also my weakness.

Now? Now I feel like.. I'm a more silent person. In crowds, I'd choose to be unseen rather than standing out. Maybe it's because of some things. I won't talk first before people say hi to me. I become... an anti-social person (just in real life, though).

But, instead of whining, I'm pretty much grateful. It's like, Allah has opened my eyes and show me much better things.
He shows me that I can be a better, more worthy person. He shows me that I can be more mature than before. And I'm on my way to be better.



2. A better future
I realized that, if I keep doing the things I've been doing for over 10 years, it wouldn't change a thing in my life. I do need a break.
And, at some point, I feel grateful I've made this decision. Because it really makes me re-think about what I should do in life, and this 'break time' helps me to figure it out.
Well, it hasn't come out yet, so many options here and I have to choose wisely. But I know this will be good. I just need to be patient, and keep believing, and, of course, do the things I can do now.



3. I have times to love my family more
Especially mom. I used to be a godless kid who spent her times with friends outside the house instead of spending it with family. I often hurt mom with rude words and acts. But now, seeing her struggling by herself, who else to be beside her? Me.
And now I know mom is the most precious thing in life I won't regret. <3

and yes, life is good. in our own way. c: 

#Day8 your favorite internet friend

It goes to........... Nadhia Iffah Saraswati!

Mwehehe I first knew Mbak Nadh by facebook. I was looking on some facebook accounts and saw Mbak Nadh's name on their siblings list. And then I added her.
Mbak Nadh's latest avatar. cute ;3

I ever met Mbak Nadh at Smala :D. There was an event being held there. I went to Smala with my friend then went for a walk with Mbak Nadh, the conversation was pretty good, I think :D. Ah ya, first thought when I met Mbak Nadh for the first time, I adore her haircut and of course the chubby cheek! :3 they look so cuteeee on Mbak Nadh's face :33

Mbak Nadh really is a kind person. She's cheerful when we talk through social networking sites (Fb, Twitter, Y!M, you name it!). She is...that kind of person who's extrovert yet also introvert, too, I think. She always gave me advices when I shared something with her, but she wouldn't talk about hers. One time, I chatted her at Y!M then she said, "maaf ya drek aku lagi badmood" it was pretty scary .__. but it's okay ;)

oyaaaaa, Mbak Nadh also loves movie marathon and Gerard Butler muahahahahaha!!

Mbak Nadh is now studying at PENS. She said, next year (which means this year), she'll move to Accountancy at University of Airlangga. Well, I can only hope everything's going well with her.

Goodluck, Mbak Nadh :D

how I feel recently.

One step at a time - Jordin Sparks




Hurry up and wait
So close, but so far away
Everything that you've always dreamed of
Close enough for you to taste
But you just can't touch

You wanna show the world, but no one knows your name yet
Wonder when and where and how you're gonna make it
You know you can if you get the chance
In your face as the door keeps slamming
Now you're feeling more and more frustrated
And you're getting all kind of impatient waiting

[Chorus:]
We live and we learn to take
One step at a time
There's no need to rush
It's like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It's gonna happen when it's
Supposed to happen and we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

You believe and you doubt
You're confused, you got it all figured out
Everything that you always wished for
Could be yours, should be yours, would be yours
If they only knew

You wanna show the world, but no one knows your name yet
Wonder when and where and how you're gonna make it
You know you can if you get the chance
In your face as the door keeps slamming
Now you're feeling more and more frustrated
And you're getting all kind of impatient waiting

[Chorus]

When you can't wait any longer
But there's no end in sight
when you need to find the strength
It's your faith that makes you stronger
The only way you get there
Is one step at a time


 

Celine Dion's voice always gives power to ourselves, right?

Taking Chances - Celine Dion

Don't know much about your life.
Don't know much about your world, but
Don't want to be alone tonight,
On this planet they call earth.

You don't know about my past, and
I don't have a future figured out.
And maybe this is going too fast.
And maybe it's not meant to last,

But what do you say to taking chances,
What do you say to jumping off the edge?
Never knowing if there's solid ground below
Or hand to hold, or hell to pay,
What do you say,
What do you say?

I just want to start again,
And maybe you could show me how to try,
And maybe you could take me in,
Somewhere underneath your skin?

What do you say to taking chances,
What do you say to jumping off the edge?

Never knowing if there's solid ground below
Or hand to hold, or hell to pay,
What do you say,
What do you say?

And I had my heart beating down,
But I always come back for more, yeah.
There's nothing like love to pull you up,
When you're laying down on the floor there.
So talk to me, talk to me,
Like lovers do.
Yeah walk with me, walk with me,
Like lovers do,
Like lovers do.

What do you say to taking chances,
What do you say to jumping off the edge?
Never knowing if there's solid ground below
Or hand to hold, or hell to pay,
What do you say,
What do you say?

Don't know much about your life
And I don't know much about your world
