Blog out my life

Campur sari…

Barusan membaca di salah satu blog ttg strobist photography, yg di salah satu kalimatnya menyatakan:

A little while ago, I took a look at my recent work and came to the conclusion that I was defaulting towards rich colors and saturation. It’s not something I necessarily wanted to be doing, either. But things were just ending up that way.

Mungkin benar, apa yg ditulisnya. Dulu saya bekerja di salah satu advertising agency sebagai designer dan supervisor printer. Karena printer tsb sudah tua, saya terpaksa untuk mem-boost pallete warna-warna saya menjadi lebi contrast. Bole dibilang contrast dan full saturation adalah cita rasa saya. Dan mgkn memikirkan kembali pallete-pallete warna photografi saya adalah foto dengan kecenderungan contrast tinggi. Range warna  antara yg tergelap dan terterang berdiri di jarak yg berjauhan, atau kontrast, istilahnya.

Selain itu, saya jg menjadi berpikir, dalam kehidupan sehari-hari, mungkin kita juga spt begitu, ya. Bagaimana tidak, lingkungan yg keras bisa saja memaksa kita untuk hidup secara keras, baik itu kata-kata kita ataupun perbuatan kita. Koq lucu ya, kita bisa sampe tergiring tanpa sadar oleh lingkungan kita (baik lingkungan pribadi ataupun pekerjaan).

Nah, sekarang adalah bagaimana tidak terseret ke dalam lingkungan (yg jelek tentunya), dan mencoba hal-hal yg lebih baru dan lebi bermanfaat tentunya…

Human Nature?

Manusia, adalah makhluk yg sangat aneh. Dgn adanya keinginan dan perasaan, membuat mereka menjadi berbeda dengan mahkluk yg lainnya di dunia ini. Tapi sering kali, keinginan yg terlampau kuat dan berambisi; perasaan yg ingin mendominasi ataupun egois, membuat manusia seakan hanya berpikir dirinya sendiri dan tdk bertoleransi. Apa yg ada dipikiran mereka hanya “Saya, saya dan saya”. Yg dipikirkan hanya diri sendiri, tanpa memandang bahwa dia hidup dikalangan org laen, yg masi butuh perhatian dunia ketimbang dirinya sendiri.

Beberapa manusia bahkan mensugesti (memaksa) untuk melakukan hal2 untuk kebaikan diri sendiri saja. Jika tidak dibantu, mukanya ntah kek apa lagi, sungguh tdk terbayangkan! Tp ketika kita melakukan hal2 sesuai kehendaknya, dia akan tersenyum, bagai malaikat (kematian). Tidak pernah tau apakah mereka benar2 tidak bisa berpikir ttg org lain? Apa sebabnya? Jgn blg karena autis. Jika sudah bisa bekerja, autis bukanlah satu penyakit lagi. Ini tergantung seberapa kuat keinginan diri sendiri untuk melakukan hal2 sendiri dahulu, tanpa bergantung kepada org lain. Jika hanya diri sendiri, org tsb bisa melakukannya, tapi jika ada org laen, dia tidak mau. Manja mentel? Itu adalah sanak saudara kata2 dari egois saja. Org laen bole capek, tp dia pengennya enak sendiri.

Tidak, saya tidak mencoba untuk menulis blog yg ada solusinya. Ini hanya kata hati saya yg merasa “Koq mereka ga bisa mikir ya?”. Maaf-maaf kata jika ada kata2 yg menyinggung. Saya tau saya juga manusia biasa yg masi sangat manusiawi, punya perasaan dan keinginan. Tp sering kali perasaan saya tdk enak karena ada manusia lainnya yg egois dan mementingkan dirinya sendiri, tanpa berpikir org laen, apalagi yg suka memaksa kehendaknya kepada org lain… Kelaut aja deh.

between man and women :|

There are huge different between men and women exactly. Well, many men and women deny it. They usually had thought of same position and role in the society. However, more and more I think of them, it become more and more apparent for me. This is just my thought, in most of asian country, though… let other be the judge. IMO, men are tend to talk direct things rather than women, although it is not a 100%
formula . In the other hand, women are shy and look like pessimistic, while men are opposite, optimistic and aggressive. The way man and women think are miles apart. While, for most women they thought of men and sex are like two things cant be seperated with, however, it is not always true. Men are human too, they have their thought too, and some of men are sensitive, but it is not shown in their face. Different from men, which women tend to show their feeling that can be seen from their face, or body language (when they are sad, happy and so on). Man tend to hide their happiness or emotions right under their bed, so well, that most women dont understand their partner. Man dont share thought with their male friend, they afraid to be called sissy boy or something like that. They know how to hide their sadness and problems. In the other hand, women are likely to tell their female friends almost about anything, from fashion, latest gossips, hot new guy and blah blah blah. But, in their openess of femaleself, they also really know how to hide their feeling as well (or perhaps this action make them being called as inaggresive?). Er… conclusion… men are straight forward, women are hybrid. It’s just some of my opinions, there are still more, but cannot write it down yet. Maybe, next time.

Is there any miracle?

Well, miracle _never_ ever come to me yet, and I wonder if there are really miracle in this world? Well, I heard of many persons already felt miracle, but… I dont know if it was, or just a bunch of luck following him/her. What is miracle, exactly? Who is he/she? Is she/he really that powerful that everyone seem wishing to?

Well, feel like talk shit, however, that’s the biggest question in my head now. Still finding miracle, inch by inch, one step by one step…
