Marching On



March is my birth month, and it has proven itself to be mine to march on. After everything and all the drama (that hasn't quite ended yet, but no worry, nothing is too dramatic anyway). 

So I've finally gotten (two!) job offers, and I have yet to make a decision. Both companies are really different, and I still have to do some more interviews, while I've been accepted in the other company. Another huge difference is that one locates in my hometown, while another is in Jakarta, the huge huge city. Also, one is a small start-up company while the other is a big fast moving customer goods company.

The next interview in the big(ger) will be held next week, and I am honestly unsure of what I want. The possibility of working in this huge company in a huge city where it's hard to commute anywhere because, let's face it, Jakarta is the no.1 city with worst traffic jam in the world. Scary enough? 

While Yogyakarta, my hometown, despite being not-so-huge, is a totally homey place (like of course, it's my hometown anyway. You know, it has this traditional flavor, but still steadily following the trend and  whatever is popular right now. In fact, it has gotten more crowded the last few years (but of course, nothing compares to Jakarta).

Anyway, let's just cross fingers for the best, since the future is always so unsure I've decided to take one step at a time and enjoy everything in the progress, the point is, I am finally free from my current (soon-to-be previous) company. Hoho! I still have to gather up my courage to give the resignation letter (today!), to my manager, though. I've talked about it to my supervisor and now is the time for the manager.

In another note, my birthday is coming in FOUR days, gosh! I'm really getting old! And I will celebrate my birthday in the paradise island! Yes yes, Bali here I come! YAY! Apparently, I take marching on kinda literally this year. Let's go!

March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection. March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path.-Khalil Gibran

To Enjoy my Time

I've ranted enough about how I feel pretty uncomfortable with my job and being in my office all day. So here's what I do to somehow aid the boredom... yes, of course, drawing~



I've been in love with drawing some big haired girls, I just love making the swirly hair, honestly. Hehe... And I've been thinking of what I could make out of these pictures. Maybe print it and make some cushion cover or something.

made it on my post-it note. Hehe..
not sure if I like it better with colors, what do you think?
Also, I've been in love with watercolor. Been doodling and everything using watercolor. You can say I've done some experiment. Sadly, I can't do this in my office. Anyway, did it on my free time on the weekends or after office hours is over. Sometimes I'm too tired to even think but some other time I'm feeling pretty much inspired. So yeah~




Uhm, excuse my ugly handwriting, and messy typography. It's just that I love writing motivational message, it seems. I haven't tried to create something more like a painting, I've just been doodling here and there, um~

to plan a trip

Hello, dear lovelies!

Well, I've decided that instead of feeling blue, I will simply try my darndest to find a new fun job and keep being happy with land what little friends I have around me (including you, of course!). Well, sad to say that I haven't gotten a new, happier place to work, but at least I'm coping quite well. Not that I'm getting myself used to the uncomfortable place, rather, I channel my energy to focus on more positive things to pass the day, at least this way my days pass rather happily.

Also, to take a breath (and skip working, lol) once in a while when I feel like everything's too stuffy. Hehe~ not sure if it's a good thing to do but so far so good and I've done my job quite well so nobody complaints so yeah.

Anyway, I read somewhere yesterday on how to make yourself happier. Other than the famous "being thankful" and "smile to strangers" there is a quite new point, that is "to plan a trip". Why yes, that's exactly what's been making me happier these days, haha...

I've been lusting to go on a trip again, like gosh seriously, it's time to go out and about again! I need to jump in water and breathe fresh air and play in the sand and do some serious shopping spree and meet new people and eat delicious random food and have a random conversation and make new friends, alright?



So what I've been doing is seriously staring at my computer looking for the cheapest way possible to go to Thailand, because... I don't know, this year, it's time for Thailand (and maybe Japan)! And instead of the flashy Bangkok, I'm thinking of a more quiet Krabi, with all them beaches and yummy seafood... yeah yeah, sounds pretty nice, right? Now if only I can find the best price to go there. Well, it isn't really super-duper-expensive-I-can't-afford-it, it's just that I've seen my friends bought a far cheaper tickets so I'm kinda curious (and challenged) to find it too, lol.


See, something as simple as planning a trip is making me far happier than my last post, right? ;)

oh, my not so gliterry new year post


2015 started off quietly, and kind of nicely. But who am I kidding, only 5 days into the new year and I've already had a headache and this so-confused-and-tired-I-just-feel-like-breakdown-and-cry moment. I am sorry to post such a depressing blog post in a beginning of a new year where everything is supposed to be bright and cherry and filled with new hopes. But I guess maybe I'll just start this year with sorrowful and confused blog post, find a way to deal with it and leave everything behind, and fill the rest of the year with good things.

So what gives this depressing blog post? Uh, so here goes... something I've kept to myself (in the blogsphere, at least), I've been feeling uncomfortable in my work space, and have been looking for a new one so I can resign as soon as I can but have yet to get any call, which makes everything even more depressing. It feels like I'm losing a part of myself on daily basis, and that is not a good thing.

I would write a long rant about how I don't feel like growing here, or how I don't feel like anything, or that I simply dislike my boss(?) *he's not even my boss* but that would only bring more negativity... I mean, the fact that my other team-mates are already resigning speaks a lot, right?

I wonder if I should just go crazy and resign for the hell of it and be a jobless person and try to do business or something but of course I don't have the guts to do so (or do I?) because life isn't about sunshine and rainbows and unicorns but I sure do hope so.

Krissy wrote something about a dog sitting on a nail, kept sitting on it because it doesn't hurt enough yet. I remember this particular post clearly because I can totally relate to it, and I kept thinking about it, because it feels like I'm that dog right now and am whining and crying because I'm sitting on a nail. So why am I not moving away? Could it be because I am afraid I wouldn't get another seat? Or because I'm afraid of getting yet another painful nail to sit on? Or worse, have I became used to the pain? Why do I keep hurting myself?

Honestly, as I am writing this, I feel like crawling under my table and just cry because everything is so confusing and tiring, and I still can't find a way out yet. I don't know what do, not sure what I can do to make everything better, I'm just so.. lost.

Once again I'm really sorry to start the new year with a confused blog post, hopefully things will get better and brighter and I will find the answer I need soon.

My first Ever Purchase from Jolse Review

Good day, everyone! Today I will be reviewing (or more like, you know, bragging) about my first experience buying things from jolse

Jolse is a beauty site selling beauty products (like of course) straight from Korea. Wee... by now you all should know my obsession towards Korean beauty products! Hehe..

Anyway, out of all online beauty shops I've ever tried (and trust me, I've tried a lot). Jolse's gotta be the most generous on giving samples and bonus, I mean... look!


Guess what I originally bought? I only bought three items, guys! This was my first purchase so I didn't dare to buy too much but meep meep~! So happy when the package came 

Another thing that makes me really love shopping here is that I can choose the 'free shipping' methods! LOL, I know I know.. I'm such a cheapskate... but if you want to be safer and able to keep track on where your package is, they offer standard shipping (with tracking number) for $ 2.50 and $22 for EMS shipping if you need your package to arrive faster and trackable.

So here are the things I actually bought and some little reviews on them.

IT'S SKINsupersize pore tightener
This one is HUGE, I tell you. I mean, that's one reason why I bought it, hehe... it's 400 ml and I think can last a whole lifetime (okay, not really). It is comparable to my previous Etude House's Wonder Pore which was 500ml (!!!). IT'S SKIN supersize pore tightener smells citrus-y and nothing too strong or overwhelming. And it does its job nicely, I think. I still have to use it more to know, though.

Etude HousePlay Therapy Wash off Pack Brigthening UP!
I'm running out of my Holika Holika Premium Milk Sheep Yogurt with Greentea, which I love so much. So I was looking for a new wash off pack and found pretty nice reviews of this Etude House Play Therapy Wash off Pack Brigthening UP!. I love how big it is (150 ml) and it's really quite cheap for the amount. My verdict about this product? l love that it moisturizes my face, and it does make my skin brighter. So yay!

COSRX
Galactomyces 95 White Power Essence 100 ml
There is not much reviews I found for this product, I guess COSRX is a new brand? I'm not sure, but I was in love with their adorable art accompanying the product. Also, it's 100ml which is quite a lot for an essence (guess you've found out how much of a cheapskate person I am by now).
And boy, did it work miracle and make me super happy! Yay! COSRX Galactomyces 95 White Power Essence has a really runny/watery texture so I had a little confusion at first on how much should I apply on my face, I've found out that even a single pump is enough for my whole face, weeee~! Okay, so this magic essence makes my skin soooo smooooth and moisturized and become a perfect canvas before make up.

About the samples, I haven't took a pic of them yet... heheh.. but they are just so many, and most of them are my favorites too! Meeeeep~!

So to say, I am really  satisfied with this purchase, and am thinking of buying more :p

The great news is they are having a HUGE sale now with the black friday approaching. So go-go-go and grab everything fast~!

*this post was not sponsored by jolse (I wish it was, though.. hahah) it was purely my impression of shopping there for the first time and being utterly satisfied with the things I bought and their service.
