You know my name, not my story. And, it’s better than your expectation 😜.

People are often not thankful of anything “underneath”. I’m one of them.

Devastated. Series of bad luck.

Some people are just asu

A Proposal

Aku mampu mencintaimu. Tapi bukan tanpa syarat.
Sanggupkah kamu? Tetap memelukku erat?

"You’re too scared of everything"

The End

….and the words finally came out of your mouth, just after I let my heart out

you might not hear it breaking apart,

it was louder than the words pouring out afterwards.

not even the three letters predicted.

Teka-Teki

Menggelitik, oh apakah ini? Seperti akan meledak sekaligus menyatu dan kembali menjadi satu sel untuk akhirnya lenyap. Lenyap ke dalam ruangan tak berdimensi kedap udara yang membuat melayang menjadi memungkinkan. Terus melayang dan hanya melayang tetap melayang tanpa tujuan. Anehnya, teka-teki itu seakan memberi energi untuk terus melayang meski tak bertujuan. Walau begitu, dunia terasa lebih sempurna dari sebelumnya. Kenihilan jawaban atas teka-teki itu justru  memberi semacam sensasi kepuasan bagai elemen tambahan dalam Hirarki Maslow. Mungkin ini sugesti dari ketidakberdayaan untuk menghadapi apa yang sudah kuprediksi. Tapi, terkadang, bukankah lebih baik mengandalkan imajinasi dari pada patah hati? 

Another batch of Black and White photos! These are my last few moments before leaving the Netherlands. Groningen particularly. It’s been a great journey for me. A lot of things has happened and changed me. Well, at least my way of thinking has changed. 

It’s been about 1.5 years since my Ik hou van Groningen post being posted. And, as predicted, “I love Groningen very much!” Haha! 

Now, I’m sitting in front of my laptop trying to remember every corner of the city, every joke from the people I met there, the weather and I can really make a long list of this. But, no, I’m not crying or self-pitying or anything, I’m remembering every experience I’ve got there in the best way. You know, I think when you have no regret of everything that has happened to you, you’ll just have no reason to cry or being sad anymore. It’s happened, and it’s what it’s.

Finally, I’ve posted some of these photos on my Instagram account @ariandana93 (self-promotion) but not in black and white. I filtered them into black and white because it’s kind of my obsession and sometimes it feels good to finally see something monochromatic. Ha! 

Phew, long post! Thanks for reading (if anyone’s actually reading).

There is still no such thing as “dreaming too high”, isn’t it? No dream is too high…right??

Groningen. I’ve always been interested in photography. And black and white have been my favorite colors for a really long time for their simplicity and neutrality. Some photos have been posted in my Instagram (instagram.com/ariandana93). This post is about Groningen, mostly grote markt (great market), some at academic building, and one at a-straat (lady on the bridge).

I burn it all into smoke. Hoping to be heard by the same wandering folk. It’s a stupid and silly thing. But when the words just cannot come out, it seems to be the only way to burn the feeling out.

"Get up and move on" is just too easy to say

draculah:

jon-o-rama:

beards make you hotter.
this is science.

and mustaches make you creepier.
that is also science.

and what about the chest hair? Is there any science for that? ;P
