June, what’s good?

Hot damn! We did it, you guys! We have officially kissed the first six months of 2018 goodbye. Adios! Ciao! Sayonara! See you never! Now, we only have to brace the next six months of 2018 before I only have to brace another 18 months until I will validate my existence as a native of Jakarta once more.

Oh man, if you can’t tell, I am bloody excited! Like, freakishly ecstatic! Hot damn! No words can describe how jolly I am.

Alright, contain yourself. Before we actually brace the next six months, let’s all ask the question, June, what’s good?

Going Dutch (part four)

Has it been a crazy week or what? Honestly, no. It wasn’t anymore crazy than any other week, I just wasn’t feeling the vibe to continue the series a couple of days ago, so I decided to write something else. That being said, I am back again for the fourth instalment of my trip to the Netherlands.

Now, I don’t want you to be thinking that my fourth day will be anything different than any other day. Like I’ve been telling you since the beginning of this series, the whole entire trip’s purpose was just to (1) get away from Bogota for awhile, (2) to eat as many Indonesian food as I can, (3) to meet up with with RAM, (4) to meet up with friends, and (5) to just chill like I’ve never had the chance to chill whilst still in Bogota.

Get to know me: How I realised that I actually knew what I want to do with my life.

I once told a friend that I really wanted to be successful, and famous for that matter. I want to have an excuse to write a memoir. A memoir in which I will recount all the many weird stories that have happened in my life that have shaped me to be the amazingly sarcastic bitter person that I am today. But let’s be honest, I am not seeing this successful life in which I would be allowed to write about my life story happening soon.

But, and here’s a big but, I have a blog. I am allowed to write anything I want in my blog, provided that I don’t write things to deliberately hurt other people. That being said, I’d probably start sporadically write some snippets of my life; stories of who I am before all the hullabaloo that is adulthood took over (and possibly somewhere in between in all).

Great, now that I gave you enough prologue about why I’ll be writing about the story of my life, here’s the first story.

May Bookish Box: Broken Hearts Club

Honestly, I should have post about the April Bookish Box, but I didn’t. To be honest, I was just so overwhelmed. The box arrived around mid May, and at that point I am already knee deep in so many works, and when June rolls around, I literally can’t find a time to work my mind up to write a post. Next thing I knew, I had to leave Colombia for my long awaited holiday. Sure, I did post two book reviews before I left, but that’s because I already left it on hold for too long and if I don’t post it soon, I will be another knee deep problem what with adding more books that I’ve finished but never wrote the review for it.

Right, now that the whole excuses are out of the way, let me get into May Bookish Box.

Going Dutch (part three)

Well hello. We are halfway through the whole series, you know? I have singlehandedly decided that the series will end at part five. Why? Why not? Am I right? Also, the third day of my Netherland trip is sort of amazing because we managed to squeeze a lot of activities in one single day, and obviously we did came home late, again. At this point, if we ever came back to the hotel before midnight, it’s not us, you know?

Anyway, Friday happens to be Eid Mubarak!

As I grew older I kept on feeling less and less excited about Eid Mubarak. It’s always either someone got a fight with someone, or having to deal with annoying family members. It sucks! I grew hating Eid Mubarak since around junior high school. But, this year’s Eid Mubarak is different! Because not only do I get to celebrate it with RAM, this was also the first Eid Mubarak in which I genuinely spend it as a vacation and not as an obligation. So, let’s cheer for that!

Going Dutch (part two)

Why hello there! Either I’m living in a distorted reality in which I think people are actually entertained by the first part of my trip to the Netherlands that now I decided to write part two, or I just like to humble brag. I’m thinking it’s 70% the latter, only 28% the former, and the remaining 2% is me being clueless about running a blog. What else is new?

Alrighty then, without further ado, whatever happened on the second day of my Netherlands trip?
