—Sad

ikumaikuma:

Man, it’s been a long day

Stuck thinking ‘bout it driving on the freeway

Wondering if I really tried everything I could

Not knowing if I should try a little harder

Oh, but I’m scared to death

That there may not be another one like this

And I confess that I’m only holding on by a thin thin thread

I’m kicking the curb cause you never heard

The words that you needed so bad

And I’m kicking the dirt cause I never gave you

The things that you needed to have

I’m so sad, saaad

Man, it’s been a long night

Just sitting here, trying not to look back

Still looking at the road we never drove on

And wondering if the one I chose was the right one

Oh, but I’m scared to death

That there may not be another one like this

And I confess that I’m only holding on by a thin thin thread

I’m kicking the curb cause you never heard

The words that you needed so bad

And I’m kicking the dirt cause I never gave you

The things that you needed to have

I’m so sad, saaad

I’m so sad, so sad

Oh, but I’m scared to death

That there may not be another one like this

And I confess that I’m only holding on by a thin thin thread

I’m kicking the curb cause you never heard

The words that you needed so bad

And I’m kicking the dirt cause I never gave you

The things that you needed to have

And I’m kicking the curb cause you never heard

The words that you needed so bad

I’m so sad, so sad

This elderly couple took a photo in their small garden outside their house for every season of the year, come rain, snow or shine.

They stood in the same spot for every season and showed off their beautiful little garden, which they were obviously very proud of.

I wasn’t ready for the last one

oh i actually felt that physically 

Then came one time when i cannot share the beauty of this world with u. I hope u know how lonely i am without u.

"I told the truth on my job application about my past drug use, and they sent me a letter saying I didn’t meet their standards of integrity."

This is how fucked up our society is. Just give them the second chance to make a better life out of the damned one before.

"I’m a traffic cop. It’s a job. Somebody’s got to do it. I don’t even represent myself when I’m working. If I was representing myself, I’d let everyone off with a warning. I represent a system. Did I design the system? No. I just enforce it. It’s not for me to decide the system. We elect the people who decide the system. When I write a ticket, everyone tells me a reason that they don’t deserve it. If I gave a warning to everyone with a reason, I wouldn’t give any tickets, and the system wouldn’t work. I don’t get any joy by giving a ticket. And I’m not upset if you beat it in court. It’s not personal. It’s my job."

the truth…

Uang

Kita mempunyai sebuah kebutuhan penting yang selama ini kita sebut sebagai “uang”. Hanya lembaran-lembaran kertas itulah yang kadang bisa memotivasi hidup kita sampai titik yang berlebihan. Entah kenapa kalau kertas-kertas itu tidak berupa uang, Mereka sama sekali tidak sehebat uang.

Di umur gw yang sudah memasuki 22 tahun. Banyak dari teman-teman gw yang sudah mulai mempunyai pemasukan optimal sendiri. Ada beberapa dari mereka yang berubah menjadi manusia-manusia yang termakan oleh tujuan bernama “uang”. Lingkup sosial mereka berubah jauh dan drastis. Teman-teman yang mereka cari adalah orang-orang dari kelas sosial yang sama. Pembicaraan mereka ada di lingkup pacar, bisnis, uang, dan cara menghabiskan uang. kadang yang konyol adalah mereka membicarakan liburan seolah-olah saling membanggakan tempat-tempat yang pernah mereka tuju.

Sayangnya, gw terlalu lelah untuk ikut serta dalam pembicaraan semacam itu. Terlalu banyak hal lain yang lebih penting untuk dipikirkan dan dibicarakan daripada semua gaya hidup dan sosialita yang mereka lakukan. 

Uang membuat mata menjadi buta. Itu sangat saya sadari. Terutama kalau mamu membicarakan tentang seorang boss di tempat saya bekerja. Dia masih muda, 26 tahun. Mempunyai kantor sendiri di gedung tertinggi di kota Kaohsiung, Taiwan. (Memang gedung ini terkenal, namun sewanya juga gak terlalu mahal). Namun pembicaraan yang dia buka dengan orang lain selalu tentang uang. Bahkan di saat orang kantor sebelah diajak berbicara dengannya. Dia malah membicarakan bisnis kopi. Orang kantor sebelah adalah seorang guru di salah satu universitas negeri terkenal di kota Kaohsiung. Di saat mereka membicarakan bisnis kopi, kata-kata yang paling sering dilemparkan si guru ini ke boss gw adalah

1. “Lu beneran lulusan univ XXX, pemikiran lu gak kayak orang lulus univ.” (diucapkan sekitar 3x)
2. “Lu kira import segampang itu. Emang mau lu jual ke mana barang lu?” (Diucapkan sekitar 3x)
3. “Kalo emang mau bisnis, lu cari bisnis yang lu suka. Ngerti apa lu soal kopi? Coba kalo ditanya orang, kopi lu apa kekhasannya, lu juga pasti gak bisa jawab apa-apa. Toh kopi dikasih ama orang aja cuma lu tinggal di kantor gak pernah lu minum.” (4-5 kali)

Dan kata-kata yang paling sering diucapkan oleh boss gw adalah
1. “Tapi kalo gitu. Kan masih bisa di….” (berkali-kali gw udah gak itung lagi)
2. “Maksud gw tuh gampangnya…. “
3. “Misalkan kalo gw….”
4. “Tapi kalo gw…..”

Lihatlah, orang yang termotivasi ama duit tapi otaknya kosong. :’(

Kadang sampe eneg dengerin boss gw ngomongin soal bisnis a, bisnis b. Tapi kerjaan di kantor sekarang aja bukan dia yang beresin sampe beres, tapi semua dilempar ke gw dan anak buah yang satu lagi. Lucunya adalah ni kantor masih bertahan setelah setahun. Kekurangannya adalah, karena dia termotivasi ama duit, dia gak pernah mikir untuk mempertahankan sesuatu. Gw kerja di sini aja bulan depan udah mau balik ke indonesia, temen sekantor gw udah rencana mau cabut dari kantor udah dari lama. 

Uang, sob.

Boss gw juga pernah ngabisin duit buat ke prostitute. Pathetic man.

Duit lu masih bisa buka bisnis laen, tapi dibuang cuma buat basahin titit.

Laen hal lagi adalah ketika dia ngomel2 soal anak buah lapangan yang sering ngaco dan sering bego dan sering keras kepala. Di saat boss gw ngomel2 soal dia. Gw cuma berucap dalam hati, “boss, tuh orang ama lu gak jauh beda sifatnya, lu aja buta gak bisa liat diri sendiri.”

Yah pokoknya uang.

Bisa bikin hati lu mati, otak lu tumpul. Itu yang gw liat dari boss gw. Gw rasa kalo suatu kali bisnis boss gw mati, dia gak punya temen yang bakalan mau nolong. Udah dia gak bakal punya apa-apa.

Kadang gw capek kerja ama dia. but yeah. tinggal beberapa minggu lagi kok… hahaha

Gw juga cuma morotin dia aja. gw butuh duit dari dia. that’s it.

"When I was 22, I fell off a fishing boat in the middle of the night. We were about 200 miles from shore, fishing for swordfish. I was trying to bend a pipe into place when it gave way and dumped me in the ocean. They didn’t notice I was gone for about 20 minutes. The waves were about twelve feet high, and between the waves I could see the boat going further and further and further until it completely disappeared. You know how they say that when you’re dying, you’re supposed to go toward the light? Well, when I thought I was dying, the light was moving further and further away."
