20 Things I Learned By 20

So, as you can tell, I’m going to be ranting about things I’ve learned these past 20 years of my life.

Being a 20 year old man is something that until today still sounds so weird to me. I always talk to myself when I’m bathing. One day I said out loud while I was in bathroom “hey I’m Bima, I am 20 years old boy..” and I stopped to think about the sentences that I just said then I laughed. Why did I laugh?, because boy, it sounds so weird. I mean, twenty years old? Wow. I never feel like a 20 year old man, but rather a 15 year old. But 15 is like five years ago (haahh).

Flash Fiction: Magical Day

Magical Day

He was pedaling his bicycle so hard that his knees were shaking heavily on every push.

“Damn it! I shouldn’t have come this way.” Thomas murmured.


Thomas was a tough young man with an athletic body. You couldn’t be any doubt with his power. But that day, he seemed so exhausted way more than anything because he got two uninvited guests.

Architecture Drawing #1

Once I saw an artist post on Pinterest that show a sketch of building. Then I became interested to try making one.

I downloaded some video on Youtube which really help me to be a bit confident drawing buildings. Actually I’ve always wanted to draw this kind of art but I wasn’t feel ready (are we ever ready though?)

Architecture is always fascinating type of drawing for me. It shows the structure of a building, patterns, shape etc. I enjoy seeing this art. For me, someone who can draw buildings with a sense of art, is special (doesn’t mean anybody else isn’t special though). But yeah, I love architect. Someday, I hope to go to some beautiful city in any part of the globe with rich architecture styles, and histories behind them.

Afternoon Getaway to an Unknown Waterfall

It was like another usual late-morning. I woke up late (9 a.m) which means I’d missed several beautiful things at morning. I missed my miracle morning rituals, breakfast, sunrise, morning’s breeze etcetera. But that day though, it seemed like the fate twisted in a unexpected turn. That afternoon, I had a fantastic getaway trip to somewhere I’ve never been before started by a calling from my cousin. And you know what, I think I didn’t miss anything this time (:

To Be Well-Developed INTJ? (Quora Answer)

I am an INTJ according to MBTI test. I took several tests on internet and always get this INTJ as result. After that I became obsessed with this MBTI thing.

When I read those traits and characteristics of other types, I can’t relate on. But when I read this INTJ, it was like “Oh my gosh, this is so f*cking me.”

I became obsessed to any article that come across at quora or any online forum talked about my personality. It’s sometimes creepy that your personality can be learned by others and vice versa.

What My Piercing Means

What My Piercing Means

It’s been six months since I pierced my left ear. A lot of things have changed then.

I remember when I first came home after I got this piercing, and my parents were so furious they insisted me to put it off. I was scary back then, felt like I did something terribly wrong. Not just my parents though, generally my family are againts it. Pushed back by the pressure I didn’t care. Gradually my parents, my family are getting ease with my piercing. Even my mother suggested me her own earrings to try on me (:

Growing up I used to believe that someone with piercing (especially men) was sick mentally or broken. They might aren't grateful enough for their own bodies and trying to manipulate their appearances. Someone with piercings or tattoos is usually associated with bad person or even dangerous. I can’t believe that the younger me were really close-minded like that. But not until last year my mind changed.

Today I see piercing or tattoos as one of the most artsy things human can possess upon their body. Piercing has different meanings from each person. Me personally think, piercing shows that the person is quite strong, outrageous, fearless. That even means they have overcome some of the hardest time in their lives.

My own piercing means a lot to me. It is a symbol and reminder for me that I am the only one who responsible of my way of life. Whenever I feel overwhelm by the constant fuzzy world, I can see my own reflection in mirror and spot my left ear. The bullet that has cut my ear means I can change the things that don’t align with my values. And nobody in this entire world could stop me but myself.
So, if somehow you meet someone with piercings or tattoos, please don’t be judgmental jerk. Go straight to them and ask them what do their tattoos or piercings mean. And be prepared for amazing stories behind them (:

Take Pictures

Prompt: Camera

Take Pictures

Both of them were standing at the outside terrace of the bungalow. What stretched in front of them was nothing but vast blue-magenta ocean under the cloudy sky.

“you just have to press this button.” Said the man
“okay” replied Lucy as she gestured her hand onto the camera.


“is that work?” she said while the man was looking strangely at her.
“yeah, but make sure to hold it firm, otherwise the picture will be blur.”
“okay.” Said  Lucy.  


“how is it?”
She put off the camera she was holding, out of the angle. Somehow the pictures were taken precisely beautiful under her finger. 

“Nice.” The man gave a broad smile as he took the camera. “Why do you do this?”
There was a silence moment between the two. The man put back the camera on her hand carefully.

“I love the sound of it, when you press the shutter.” Lucy said at last. She grabbed the camera and started to take another picture.


“You’re always weird” He said breathlessly.
“I know right,” she took down the camera for a moment and looking aimlessly to the source of  the man’s voice had been. “I want to see this picture I took, when my sight is back again.”

Well, this idea came across my mind while sitting on my desk, trying to think of something. I spotted the camera in front of me and thought “what would happen if someone blind takes this?”
I know it’s not that crafty but at least for myself I'm really proud hehe.
Next time I’ll post more of this kind of style. I enjoy it.

Give me your thoughts at the comment section below J

Review Love Sick The Series [Season 1 & Season 2]

Sawadee Kráb, It’s been a while haven’t posted any article here.
And for this precious ‘aha moment’ beyond any procrastinations and excuses, I’d take the full advantage to write my personal opinion about the latest Drama Series I watched… Love Sick The Series.

[SPOILER ALERT] for those who haven’t watched yet.

Pertama kali liat judul series ini pas waktu iseng-iseng google rekomendasi Boy’s Love movie. Dan sampai lah ke Blognya Karin24 yang memang khusus bahas hal-hal yang berhubungan dengan Fujoshi/BL movie etcetera. Meskipun aku sendiri bukan tipe fanatik dengan drama series, like EVER. But in exception for BL Drama though.

Flash Fiction Timeline

Crazy Riding

“You’ve got to steady your steering!” barked the bigger boy as he took another turn. The moon was shining through the silvery clouds, which covering the gleaming town below.

“What am I supposed to do?” cried the smaller boy in his uncomfortable riding.

The clouds were getting thicker and solid, blocking the moon lights as they’re moving to South. They never been this far before, and with the world getting darker, they could easily hit by something dangerous or losing any direction.

“Turn your lights on!” The bigger boy bellowed but his voice was hardly audible as the line of gold light flashing into the dark night. But the smaller boy worked as though having some difficult math formulas to be solved in front of him; He didn’t see the button.

A moment later, the bigger boy came hurtling closer to him and said in a trembling voice –

“Right under your grip!” the wind was rushing on his face “you’re risking yourself not knowing how to operate a broomstick!

Already Done

They sat intertwined, breeze of September’s morning crept in. Their eyes were looking to the line, the line where the clouds meet the ocean.

I sat down on sands, waiting for time to pass by. And yet, as I crossed the beach back to the path I only recognized so well for the last time, I saw once more to the place I knew nothing better but a memory dump. Place which the Romans would write in their poetry; two guys that were sitting on the shore, had vanished.

I drew my breath back into reality, and for the hundreds times this week I said wistfully to myself –
“We’re done..”

Flash Fiction pertama yang berhasil terjaring dalam otak dan dikeluarkan.. Agak absurd sih sebenarnya karena waktu itu aku buatnya cuma beberapa jam dan brainstorm langsung bikin dua cerita ini. Sebenarnya apa itu Flash Fiction dan metode pembuatannya masih blur di kepala ku, tapi dari beberapa hasil bacaan sih, kurang lebih begitulah Flash Fiction ditulis. 

Masih ingin buat lebih banyak lagi sih, cuma belum tau kapan mulai lagi. Rasanya harus ikut writing challenge, tapi masih banyak tugas kuliah. jeezz, Well, I'll leave it here and bye.

My Hello with Harry Potter

It begun when I forced myself to just read a little part of the book and right after that, I can’t stop but reading and thinking about all the wizarding-world.

A sweet friend of mine actually encouraged me to read this novel, though I had already insisted to read this hella super-rated book. But after I found that she also interested in Harry Potter, and was already begun reading the book I even became more convinced to start.

Imlek Di Manado

Hai Guys! Wish you are having a great week.

Kali ini aku akan sharing pengalaman ku berkeliling kawasan Pecinan (China Town) di kota Manado dalam rangka tahun baru Imlek.

Tanggal 28 Januari adalah hari Tahun Baru Imlek 2568 bagi etnis Tionghoa (atau keturunan Tionghoa) di seluruh dunia. Tidak terkecuali di  Indonesia. Karena kebetulan negara kita ini amat sangat lekat budayanya dengan bangsa Tiongkok, serta banyak keturunan Tionghoa yang menjadi  bagian dari masyarakat bangsa ini, maka Hari Imlek juga jadi hari libur Nasional dan di beberapa daerah sangat kental perayaannya.

The Old Man and The Sea (Book's Review)

“Every Day is a new day. It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact. Then when luck comes, you are ready..” Santiago, The Old Man and  The Sea

Novel karya Ernest Hemingway ini ku baca di awal minggu tahun 2017, buku kedua yang ku baca tahun ini.
Secara keseluruhan buku ini tidaklah terlalu membosankan (in my opinion) dan unik. Seperti beberapa buku sebelumnya, yang semuanya memiliki beberapa BAB, novel ini mengagetkanku dengan hanya mengusung satu BAB saja. 

Meski termasuk singkat (102 Halaman) tetapi kandungan cerita didalamnya ternyata tidak serumit yang ku kira.

Traveling Resolution

“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore..”

Ketika mereview apa yang terjadi dan berhasil ku capai di tahun 2016, sangatlah sedikit waktu ku yang habis dalam suatu Trip atau petualangan. Bersyukur juga sih masih bisa trip ke beberapa tempat tahun lalu, tapi rasanya kurang berkesan, bayang-bayang tempat yang kukunjungi tidak terlalu kuat.

Nah, sebagai bagian dari resolusi ku tahun 2017, Aku bertekad untuk lebih giat mengeksplorasi tempat-tempat yang belum pernah ku kunjungi sebelumnya. Saatnya keluar kamar!

Hey guys, wish you are having a wonderful day!

Pernahkah kalian terpikir tentang bersekolah diluar negeri?

Okay, sepertinya hampir setiap saat ketika melihat ke wallpaper laptop ku dengan bangunan-bangunan megah khas eropa, rasanya seperti rasa ingin pergi ke sana semakin kuat..

Tidak Butuh Persutujuan dari Orang Lain

“You don’t have to defend or explain your decisions to anyone. It’s your life. Live it without apologies.”

Hey guys, I wish you are having a wonderful week!
Kali ini aku akan share topic yang mungkin sangat menarik perhatian ku selama ini. Apa itu? 

Sewaktu kecil aku senang bermain dengan serangga. Hampir setiap hari pasti aku akan pergi ke daerah penuh semak yang penuh dengan harta karun ku, yaitu belalang, laba-laba dan jenis makhluk kecil lainnya. Hewan favorit ku adalah laba-laba, which for me is so cool!

I don't want Heaven

Mungkin alasan mengapa aku suka Troye Sivan adalah karena dia bisa menyajikan lagu yang relevan dengan situasi ku.

“Daddy heart breaks…”
“trying to save face..”
“Truth runs wild like a tear down on a cheek..”

Hard, it is hard to be yourself…
When everybody tryin to squaring you up with their own expectations..

Brand New Day

 “You don’t need a new day to start over, you only need a new mindset..” – Hazel Hira Ozbel

Luarbiasa, luarbiasa, luarbiasa!
Tahun 2016 begitu cepat berlalu dengan banyak  hal  yang bisa kukenang dan merupakan tahun terbaik sejauh ini selama ku hidup.
Aku belajar banyak hal di  tahun 2016, sampai-sampai rasanya aku baru benar-benar hidup ketika tahun itu.
