Forrest Gump's mom said that life is like a box of chocolate. You never know what you are gonna get.
A friend said to me earlier today,
‘Oh how time has passed. Ramadhan last year, I still have a boyfriend. Now I got none…
But thankfully I gain more best friends and I regret none.’
Last Ramadhan, my team was complete but now, we’re only half from the beginning. I faced heartbreaking farewells. Countless tears but let’s not forget the laughter and connection we made.
Some of my best friends also gone on their own journey to the faraway land, God knows I wish them the best.
Some feelings became prehistoric and another feeling grows.
I’m not the same me a year ago and hopefully it’s a good thing.
It’s amazing how things can change in a year.
Some people go, some people come, but the best ones remain.
Selamat menunaikan ibadah puasa. :)
I recently installed an app called Timehop. It’s an app that takes you to look at what’re you up to years back based on photos created on the same day but different year, as long as you permit it to access your fb/computer to search for it.
The first one framed 2 couples, my ex & I and my friend & her boyfriend (till now). I told my friends, it’s a good thing from two couples, one survived.
Based on this, my friends started to download the app.
Today my friend shared the pic that Timehop picked for her. It was a collection of photobox. There we were, another couples smiling for the camera (includes me) but both of the couples no longer together (it was for the best though). That put a smile to my face. Yes, it’s over. True, it was a major breakup with lots of tears spilled here and there but for that certain moment, we were once happy. And that what matters.
Another friend got different pic though (in our defense, it was 2009 and fb was a hit, we shared EVERYTHING!!). It was the three of us, same faces, smiling carefree to the camera. One thing that got my attention was, I wear the same shirt today and the pic was 5 years ago!
So the lesson is…. I need to update my wardrobe?
Hahaha, nope. I like this shirt and it’s still in a good condition and carries a lot of memories (it turns out)
So the conclusion is, people come and go, some relationship stay and some drift apart, but the best one lasts for a long-long time. My friends and I have been best friends for 6 years now and whether we’re in different places we still talk and always be there for each other. And I’m glad we survive this relationship. :)
On a different note? I didn’t change that much, did I? Hahaha..
This draft has been sitting in the box for way too long. I was too sure that I’m going to have the mood to narrate this, my once in a lifetime experience. It was a whirlwind journey that not only tiring and a little bit terrifying but also satisfying. But it turns out, my lazy ass wins this time. So, I’ll let the pictures to speak for itself. Here we go,
How could you resist to jump into this, seriously?
Laying at my back while enjoying the sun goes down, I feel at peace.
And the best part, I have them as my traveling companion. They’re the best. Of course the one that took the photo included. :)
Pardon our amateurs photography, but you have to believe me, the stars were breathtaking.
Just another day at the *uhuk* private *uhuk* island..
Mendaki gunung, lewati lembah, sungai mengalir kita bertualang! *nyanyi*
I’m at the top of the world~~ Sort of.
We found this flag lying at the ground, yeay!
Sok-sokan menatap masa depan. Hahaha..
We did it!
I always want to dive in every time I see this picture. Don’t you? Don’t youuuu???
Tulisan ini akhirnya di-publish dengan harapan bisa segera liburan lagi. Karena suatu agenda yang akan menghabiskan semua cuti gue di akhir tahun (Insyaallah), tahun ini jadi harus irit-irit make jatah cuti. But I’ll make time and excuses for short gateway. Wish me luck! :D
