bold, black, beautiful

just another small tip to be under the spotlight without way too much effort :
some people say, perfect pair of shoes would mark up your outlook like 10000x better

why go basic if you can flaunt it terrific?
black can go bolder than neon sparks with slightly right, measured touch of uniqueness, like these...

United Nude

Space Shoe Wood Wedge Sandal

booooooring, tee-hee!

doing randomness between assignment deadlines is my guilty pleasure. those randomnesses include sleeping, magazine digesting, munching, stalking (yea yea), blogwalking etc.

am currently blogwalking through friends' blogs, opened their friends' link, go further to their other friends', and so on until I barely knew the owner of those blogs. I found this on one of those blogs. I wanted to put the hyperlink here (avoiding plagiarism issue, I might say) but thanks to my slip fingers, I closed the window before copying the link. zzz. and I didn't pay attention to the name, so it's a waste to flip through history tabs. zzzzhhhh

analogy monologuey

I saw a red tulip, then I told you “Look, a tulip!”

You smiled and replied “It’s rose, my sweet lil dummie.”

I was like, whaattt? “But babe can’t you see? That must be a tulip!”

You turned emotional. “What kind of goddamned tulip would look like that? Come on.”

I thought, alright. Anything to stop this nonsense fight. Okay hon, that’s a rose, just like your smart-ass said.

When you heard that, you got mad instead.
I thought like, “Fine then. I’ve compromised for you, you don’t buy that, fine enough.” And that was exactly why I left you there.

So right now, if you think you could come to me and say “I just realized after all this time, you’re right.  I think that was a tulip we saw back then.”
well I’ll spill it all out to your face. “Look, both the tulip and the rose were already withered, dead, RIP, like ages ago. So why bother about them at the first place? Get off.”

Get off. I won’t ever listen to you anymore.

That very moment when insecurity crashes me like massive car accident

Rem, kopling, gas
Melaju pelan di atas aspal keras
Roda bergulir dibawah terik panas

Gigi satu, netral, gigi dua
Macet bagai hari libur di Cisarua
Radio, AC, demi mengusir penat kunyalakan semua

Tol ramai lancar, gigi tiga
Polisi berdiri tegak namun tak ada sikap siaga
Biar sajalah, walau begitu aku harus tetap terjaga

Semakin lancar! Hajarlah gigi enam
Mendadak jurang membentang, aku terkaget nafasku berdentam
Sekuat iman kuinjak rem sampai terbenam

Kenapa aku tidak bisa berhenti............
