Wet Caught

a.k.a ‘tertangkap basah’

Di kantor ada peraturan, dilarang membawa keluar removable device, kecuali ada surat jalan. Dan sebenarnya, ada software yang harus di-install pada PC, sehingga USB flash drive hanya dalam mode read only. Kalo ga install? No internet beibeh ;p

Peraturan ada untuk dilanggar bukan? ^^ Setiap hari, gw selalu berhasil bolak balik keluar masuk membawa USB flash disk dengan aman sentosa. Dan, copy file *film terutama* untuk dibawa pulang ke kosan. Internet? selalu ada jalan menuju Roma beibeh ;p

Setiap hari, tersimpan 1 buah fd dan 1 buah bluetooth dongle di tempat hape. Setiap pulang dan lewat pemeriksaan satpam, selalu lolos. Tapi tidak untuk kemarin >_< *dan kebetulan kemarin tersimpan 2 buah fd dan 1 buah bluetooth dongle*

[Tersangka dengan santainya naro tas, lalu melenggang melewati metal detector. *biip* handheld metal detector berbunyi waktu melewati kantong celana. Ternyata cuma kunci kosan. Waktu tersangka balik badan untuk mengambil tas, terlihat satpam sedang membongkar isi tempat hape.]

Tersangka: *mampus gw!! tapi tetap dengan memasang muka super cool, like nothing happened*
Satpam1: Bawa USB, mbak? tiga??!
Tersangka: Bukan, itu satu bluetooth kok.. *mampus mampus, duh itu satu punya nyokap lagi >_<*
Satpam1: Bluetooth?
Tersangka: Iya, yaudahlah pak terserah aja *sambil tetap berusaha memasang tampang tak peduli, padahal sebenarnya… huwaaaaaaaaaa T___T nanti di kosan nonton apa?? padahal udah sengaja pulang sore… dan itu dua2nya 4GB, huks*
Satpam2: Ya udah, tapi lain kali jangan terulang ya mbak, kan ada peraturan ga boleh bawa keluar kecuali ada surat jalan. Ada surat jalan?
Tersangka: Gak
Satpam1: Dari bagian mana mbak?
Tersangka: R&D
Satpam2: Baru ya?
Tersangka: Iya *uhmm, 1 tahun lebih 2 bulan masih terhitung baru kaan? ya kan??*
Satpam2: Ya udah, lain kali jangan dibawa ya..
Tersangka: Makasih pak *Alhamdulillah… sebenernya mau sujud sukur, tapi ntar tambah mencurigakan, akhirnya cuma berjalan santai menuju ojek*

Baiklah… lesson learned!!! Sebaiknya disimpan di dompet aja, atau, kalo mau disimpan di tempat hape, tempat hapenya dibawa pake tangan aja jangan ditaro di dalam tas *wahahahahah… masih aja bandel ;p* Beneran deh, biasanya lolos kok. Mungkin karena biasanya pulang malam dan satpamnya udah capek kali ya. Lah ini, masih sore, jadi satpamnya masih semangat bongkar-bongkar.

Jadi, masih amaaan.. ^^v Sebenarnya ini kejadian kedua. Yang pertama duluuu banget, dan gw udah lupa gimana caranya bisa lolos ga disita. Sepertinya dengan memasang tampang ‘pak-ada-kerjaan-saya-di-situ-belum-selesai’ memelas ^^ Fyuh, semoga ga kejadian untuk ketiga kalinya…

I played them for you…

Lyric?? show

A friend gave me the mp3 file not so long ago, and it got stuck in my ears just a moment ago. Thought I’ve heard this song somewhere. After a little search, it came out that this song is one of a soundtrack of 500 Days of Summer. No wonder ^^;

five_hundred_days_of_summer_ver2

This movie is my #1 fave in its genre, but all I can give you is this…

This is a story of boy meets girl.

The boy, Tom Hansen of Margate, New Jersey, grew up believing that he’d never truly be happy until the day he met the one. This belief stemmed from early exposure to sad British pop music and a total mis-reading of the movie ‘The Graduate’.

The girl, Summer Finn of Shinnecock, Michigan, did not share this belief. Since the disintegration of her parent’s marriage she’d only love two things. The first was her long dark hair. The second was how easily she could cut it off and not feel a thing.

Tom meets Summer on January 8th. He knows almost immediately she is who he has been searching for. This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story.

Coz believe me, you have to watch this movie on your own. I got my lessons from this one, hope you will too. Movie trailer? you can search it yourself don’t ya? ;p

Tom: Darling…
[Summer looks up at him]
Tom: I don’t know how to tell you this, but… there’s a Chinese family in our bathroom.

The One That Got Away


Source: The Manila Times
By: Mark J. Macapagal

In your life, you’ll make note of a lot of people. Ones with whom you shared something special, ones who will always mean something. There’s the one you first kissed, the one you first loved, the one you lost your virginity to, the one you put on a pedestal, the one you’re with… and the one that got away.

Who is the one that got away? I guess it’s that person with who everything was great, everything was perfect, but the timing was just wrong. There was no fault in the person, there was no flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just didn’t fall the right way, I suppose. I believe in the fact that ending up with someone, finding a longtime partner that is, does not lie merely in the other person. I can actually argue that an equal part, or maybe even the greater part, has to do with the matter of timing. It has to do with you being ready to settle down and commit to someone in a way that goes beyond the little nice ties of giddy romance.

How often have you gone through it without even realizing it? When you’re not ready to commit in that mature manner, it doesn’t matter who you’re with, it just doesn’t work. Small problems become big; inconsequential become deal breakers simply because you’re not ready and it shows. It’s not that you and the person you’re with are no good; it’s just that it’s not yet right, and little things become the flashpoint of that fact. Then one day you’re ready. You really are. And when this happens you’ll be ready to settle down with someone. He or she may not be the most perfect, they might not be the brightest star of romance to ever have burned in your life, but it’ll work because you’re ready. It’ll work because it’s the right time and you’ll make it work. And it’ll make sense, it really will.

So that day comes when you’re finally making sense of things, and you find yourself to be a different person. Things are different, your approach is different, you finally understand who you are and what you want and you’ve become ready because the time has truly arrived. And mind you, there’s no telling when this day will come.

Hopefully you’re single, but you could be in a long-term relationship, you could be married with three kids, it doesn’t matter. All you know is that you’ve changed, and for some reason, the one that got away, is the first person you think about. You’ll think about them because you’ll wonder, “What if they were here today?” You’ll wonder, “What if we were together now, with me as I am and not as I was?”

That’s what the one that got away is, the biggest “What if?” you’ll have in your life. If you’re married, you’ll just have to accept the fact that the one that got away, got away. Believe me, no matter how fairy tale you think your marriage is, this can happen to the best of us. But hopefully you’re mature enough to realize that you’re already with the one you’re with and this is just another test of your commitment, one which will just strengthen your marriage when you get past it. Sure, you’ll think about him/her every so often, but it’s alright. It’s never nice to live with a “might have been,” but it happens. Maybe the one that got away is the one who’s already married. In which case it’s the same thing. You just have to accept and know that your memories of that person will probably bring a nice little smile to your lips in the future when you’re old and gray and reminiscing. But if neither of that is the case, then it’s different.

If the timing is finally right, it’ll all just fall into place somehow and you know, I’m thinking, it would be a great feeling, in the end, to be able to say to someone, “Hey you, you’re the one that almost got away.”

Monday Morning Babble

earings

Gw menyebutnya “founding earings”, karena mereka anting-anting pertama yang akan mengawali koleksi gw nantinya. Dua di sebelah kiri tadinya koleksi milik mba nyun, gw beli waktu dia menggelar garage sale. Yang terakhir, nemu di Bogor, unik sih, bentuk zipper gitu XD

Sepertinya gw sedang terkena sindrom bosan dengan rutinitas *yang udah kerja kayaknya pasti merasakan ini*. Nah, koleksi anting-anting ini kayaknya bakal jadi salah satu kegiatan baru yang menarik. Selain itu, buanyak banget rasanya yang ingin dilakukan.

Mungkin, masa rebellion gw baru mulai sekarang, heheh. Biasanya orang-orang masa rebellion-nya waktu sekolah ya. Gw ga tuh, waktu sekolah dulu, gw sudah cukup merasa nyaman dengan menikmati waktu di rumah, baca buku, main game, main musik, merajut, menyulam, daaan berbagai kegiatan rumahan lainnya. Sekarang, kegiatan-kegiatan itu udah ga terlalu berasa menarik buat gw >_< I need something, more… challenging, adventurous, adrenaline pumping.

Walaupun mungkin, ga seekstrim: tindik bibir *humm, tindik di tahi lalat gw yang di atas bibir??* ato hidung, cat rambut warna pirang ato pelangi, terjun dari tebing langsung ke laut *nope, there will be no werewolf that would save me, like he saved Bella*, permanent tattoo, atau, ikutan Take Him Out Indonesia? *evil grin*. Definitely not!!! What I really wanna do:
