Mind Talks

I have this mind that talks too much at night and get silent when I reach out in the morning. Some people deal with that everyday. They get really deep at night and have this wild imagination scrambling across their pillow. They have this lucid dream, and when they wake up, their energy was drained. Insecurities about their future mostly landed at night, but at the same time, best ideas comes when they reach their beds, tuck their pillow, hoping to have a good night sleep, but ended up looking at the ceiling with eyes wide open. 

Those things, happened to me. In my experience, night time is when my brain is fully awake, but my body feels like shit. I am not a morning person. When I woke up, I feel like shit all over again. It started when I was probably (yes, probably) reach my university years. I moved out from my house and rent a room near my university and started a life which was free and exciting. Studying architecture was the most challenging and exciting which brought me to a nocturnal life: staying up late until 3-4 or even 5 or 6 in the morning. But, now, I ditched that kind of lyfestyle and since I worked in a corporate, my life seemed more neat (not really).

One year when I bring Kertasbykarls to life, I feel like 24 hours my mind won't shut up. Everything started when I opened up my eyes and start to think about what kind of work I'll be doing every single day. Nobody tells me what to do any longer. That job is now belong to me, and I have to tell people what to do too. Responsibility is now mine. But, it came with a price: my non-stop mind-talks and shattering schedule. I just wish I have a huge compartment in my mind and stack 'em neatly, but I can't. I mean, I should have the will to 'create' it, "let's us create the compartment of mind!". 

I have tried to create a bunker, with a racks full of read boxes and grey boxes in a glass see-through wall. The red ones are tasks and the grey boxes are something to think later. The red boxes written: Kertasbykarls, are the ones that I frequently open every night. I tried to pack it up, close it down. And then, I locked the glass door with pin security. It might work, I thought. But, then I didn't realize I was back again inside the glass bunker. Shit. 

It didn't work. 

Then, I just let it go. Let all the thoughts flow through me and I give myself a calming pep talk: 

"Everything will be alright, will be fine, let us see tomorrow, don't rush things. Let the present be mine, say prayers and fall asleep, think about nice cute things like my furry ungrateful dogs. Think about how much they annoyed you. Think about how they stare you with their cute eyeballs. How they greet you when you came and how they asking for food." 

So...practically, my dogs are my cure to my mind-talks at night. 
I fall asleep after that. 

My mind still running like it always been. But, after I figure how to handle problems and emotions, I started to feel like a normal person. But, sometimes it comes up to me again. Its natural, normal and it is okay. We just have to find the outlet to unleash our disturbing thoughts. It is our rights to live as a human being. 

After I wrote this, I am grateful. Grateful to have a blog, to have an internet access, to have wiFi, so that I can write down my annoying thoughts. And also grateful to share my thoughts with unknown readers.

I am grateful, and you should too. :)

The Hustle of A Single Parent: SUSAH SINYAL (Movie by Ernest Prakasa) (1)

Baru kali ini gue bisa ngakak sampai terguling-guling nonton film Indonesia yang disutradarai & ditulis oleh Ernest Prakasa (terkenal dari Stand Up Comedy dari Metro TV).
Kids, siapa sih yang nggak kenal sama dia? Kalo belom kenal, mungkin dengan usaha gue untuk membuat movie review pertama ini kalian bisa kenal sedikit lebih dekat dengan salah satu karya Ernest. Semoga tidak mengecewakan hehe.

Kalo kalian stuck dengan judulnya, mungkin kalian males nonton. Gue pun begitu. Gue tau Ernest Prakasa sejak dia muncul beberapa kali di Youtube dan sempet tau sedikit tentang acara kompetisi Stand Up Comedy di Metro TV beberapa tahun yang lalu. Tapi gue baru ngeh ketika dia menghasilkan film yang sangat sukses di tahun lalu: Cek Toko Sebelah(click for the trailer). Ternyata seraya saya membuat review ini, ada pula film pertamanya (yang juga cukup sukses) yang diangkat dari cerita kehidupan pribadinya 'ngetawain hidup ala Ernest' berjudul Ngenest(click for the trailer).

The Way You Are

I've always been kind of person who thinks: in order to write, a good inspiring article or blog, is to seize the perfect moment to write. I really like to write when night comes. Night time is when I contemplate about lots of things in life. And then comes the moment when I have so many things in my mind, and I don't have the energy to do it. Sucks. 
Okay. So tonight is the night when I actually don't have the energy to write. 
I'm supposed to write about a story of some bad parts of my childhood. I've promised my friends that I wanted to tell her about that story, but, emmm, not a good time. Maybe later. Hehehe, procrastinator! 
Remember I wrote about multi-potentialites? Yup, I guess, I'm kind of one of those, like, almost. 
Recently, I am busy making myself as a Creative-preneur.  Wait, what, is creative-preneur?
Basically, is a creative person who becomes an entrepreneur, by making out of creativity as a weapon of entrepreneurship.  I actually made the unde…
