Marhaban ya Ramadhan

I never expected that Ramdhan came like when I’m falling asleep. Slowly and then in total unconsciousness this holy month came to us.
This fist the first time I experience fasting without any assistance. In my home, my mother is the one who prepare for break and sahur. However, in my current state I should do everything by my own. Maybe this is what we called a process to be an adult. Considering I’m 20 now, I feel shocked nonetheless.
Yet this Ramadhan I feel like something missing. I can’t put my finger on it. I just feel it. Maybe the different ‘s atmosphere or maybe because of something else, like my lack of companies and friends in this new dormitory. Experiencing fasting not at hometown is drive me sad.
As you know I should endure this uneasiness because of I have my final exam ahead. Starting tomorrow I’ll have my final exam. After 12 days max I think I’ll go heading to home. I can not wait to be home and pursue pleasant activities like sleeping all the time and playing violin.

How I wish my final exam bring the best result so it will not disturb my holiday.

10 June; My 20th Birthday

Jujur, meski aku sudah berumur 20 tahun. Aku merasa tidak layak mendapat umur 20 tahun. Aku seharusnya masih stay di umur 18 tahun. Karena secara emosional aku masih merasa bahwa aku masih remaja, bukan dewasa muda.
Menjadi dewasa adalah hal yang sulit. Umur 20 tahun berarti aku sudah diperhitungkan dewasa. Semua apa yang aku lakukan akan menjadi tanggung jawabku sendiri. Jika aku melakukan tindakan kriminal, maka aku sendiri yang akan dihukum. Bukan orang tuaku lagi. Begitupun dengan keputusan hidup. Aku sudah bebas memilih, karena secara hukum aku juga sudah dewasa. Kalau aku memili menjadi seoarng peminum alkohol, itu juga sudah diperbolehkan (meskipun aku tidak akan meminumnya).
Menjadi dewasa itu berat, dan aku tidak ingin menjadi dewasa sebenernya. Namun dewasa adalah suatu proses harus dilalui setiap orang. Jadi ya aku harus menjalaninya kan?

Quatuor Eclisses Live Concert!

I'm so happy to announce that I have a chance to watched Quatuor Eclisses concert in Sheraton's Hotel and Towers ballroom last night. This is a rare opportunity for sure, because not everyday I can watch a classical concert in luxurious place with affordable price, only 50k rupiah you know. It's matched with students budget.

Quatuor Eclissess is a guitar quartet from France that launched 2012 and consist of 4 master guitarists from Conservatoire de Paris. 

Their performance was amazing. Their guitars sound like piano, very clear and divine. I never heard guitar's sound as clear as their's. If they have another performance in Indonesia, I'll damn sure will come.
