The War is Near.




Selama sebulan belakangan, semua perhatian terarah ke event ini. Tenaga, pikiran dan uang. Setiap hari nongkrong di PAU sampai jam 11 malem, bahkan ngambil jatah weekend, ngerjain dekorasi gallery, nontonin anak talent latihan, kadang kalau udah suntuk habis itu ngobrol-ngobrol sambil nemenin yang cowok-cowok ngerokok. Capek, jelas. Tapi entah kenapa selalu menikmati setiap keringat yang dikeluarkan. Bahkan sakit aja dilawan. 

Mungkin karena ada mereka. Mereka, entah sebutannya apa, bisa dibilang kamar, tempat singgah, atau bahkan rumah baru. Mereka yang sekarang selalu ditemui tiap hari, tiap waktu, bahkan sampai sebelum tidur. Mereka, yang mau sama-sama capek demi sesuatu ini. 

Semangat, ya! Perangnya udah deket. Mari bertempur dan bersenang-senang di medan perang! Ayo puputan! :)

A Story of A Player One.

I am a game character. I am player one. There's no player two. I'm playing on a hard-difficulty level of game. I was picked by my player. Every chapter and level on this game has its own challenge and obstacle, which is fun but of course, hard to play. And now, I'm playing on the next level of this game. 

This level of game was as far from the final level. But it was hard, though. Luckyly, the developer of this game gave me another cast on every level. There are companions who make it easier and also enemies who make it waaay more difficult. The enemies are tricky. They sometimes act like they help you, but also take you down on the other side. But dont get it wrong, the companions are also complicated. They are there to help you go through this level, but occasionally unhelpful and make your work harder. 

I am reaching halfway of this game. My HP is only half left, but the finish line is still unseen. I am exhausted. Many enemies attacked me and my companions on our way. Time also ticks fastly here. Sometimes you don't realise that the time almost up but you haven't reached several goals yet. The enemies haunt you along with the goals. To restore your HP point also takes a long time. It needs 5-7 hours of sleep. But sleep, in this game, is not a simple thing. Once you chose to sleep, it means you allow 5-7 hours of your time in this level not doing anything while the time keeps ticking, the enemies keep haunting you, and the companions are forcing you to keep playing.

Yes, the time almost up, and I am as far as you can imagine from the final goal of this level. And honestly, I'm stucked. I don't know how to reach the goals and pass this level. Unluckyly, the developer somehow makes this game harder. You can't pause or unpause this game, so the game must go on. You can't restart from the beginning of the level. You can't even save it from the last checkpoint. 

But the developer gives us choice to keep playing or not. I choose to keep playing, because if I don't, I am nothing but electronical thing on this game's chip. That's the only option of this game, to play or not to play. Once you chose to play, you can't stop until you finish the level. No pause, restart or save it to play it later. So give up is absolutely not an option. I must keep playing. Sometime I wish my player use the autopilot to get me to the finish line of this level. But as you can guess, this feature is also not available in this game. The bottomline is, this game is terribly simple, but maybe this is one of the hardest game you'll ever know.

And, oh... i forgot. This is not a game. This is real life. Wake up, kid. The time keeps running.

Jogja Runaway!

Hari Sabtu kemarin, gue berada di kota Yogyakarta, selama kurang lebih 26 jam. Sabtu sore sampai di Jogja, Minggu sore-nya sudah harus kembali ke Depok tercinta karena di hari Senin ada kuliah yang tidak bisa dilewatkan. Sebenarnya ini perjalanan yang bisa dibilang mendadak karena kepastian berangkat baru hari Rabu minggu kemarin. Gue juga bisa ke Jogja karena nyokap, yang juga ke Jogja buat ketemu temen bisnis, punya tiket ekstra. Karena mendadak juga, gue ga kepikiran untuk bawa apa-apa selain baju. Termasuk kamera. 

Niatnya di sana mau nyamperin Yogie dan Nina, tapi ternyata Neneknya Yogie meninggal, jadi doi harus balik ke Bogor. Waktu bilang di grup smanti kalau gue mau ke Jogja, ternyata Fakhri ngerespon kalau dia sama Dan, yang kuliah di Surabaya, mau pergi ke Jogja juga. Yaudah, jadinya makin rame deh di sana.

Ngapain aja 27 jam di Jogja? Singkatnya,

Jam 3 sore hari Sabtu gue sampai di Stasiun Tugu Yogyakarta. Setelah sampai, gue pisah sama nyokap dan langsung meluncur ke UGM untuk ketemuan sama Nina. Gue nemenin Nina, yang lagi mengerjakan sesuatu, di UGM sampai jam 7 malam. Karena Nina harus pergi ke undangan nikahan saudaranya dulu, kita sempet pisah di sini. Gue ke Malioboro buat ketemuan sama Dan, Fakhri dan Fajar, Nina pergi ke tempat undangan. Sambil nunggu Nina, kita berempat makan lesehan di Malioboro. Setelah Nina datang, baru lanjut menelusuri jalanan Malioboro. Sekitar jam 10, kita ada di kilometer nol, tempat tugu peringatan Serangan Umum 1 Maret 1947. Foto-foto sebentar dan ngaso-ngaso di sana, setelah itu kita jalan ke arah utara Stasiun Tugu buat ketemuan sama Mita, Andre dan Mamet di Kopi Jos sampai sekitar jam 12. Setelah dari Kopi Jos, kita duduk-duduk di bawah tulisan Jl. Malioboro karena bingung mau kemana. Akhirnya, kita memutuskan untuk pergi ke Alun-Alun Selatan Yogyakarta buat jalan dan makan-makan. Setelah dari sana, Fakhri nginep di kosan Fajar, Dan nginep di kosan temennya, gue nginep di kosan Nina dan baru sampai jam 3 pagi.

Paginya di hari Minggu, gue jalan bareng Nyokap ke Batik Huza karena Nina mau naik ke Dieng. Siang itu gue habiskan untuk (nemenin nyokap) belanja. Siangnya, gue pisah lagi sama nyokap karena nyokap masih nginep di Jogja sedangkan gue harus balik ke Depok maghribnya. Jadi, setelah puas nemenin belanja, gue pergi ke kosan Dyara buat numpang istirahat sebentar sebelum balik. Jam 5 sore gue cabut dari tempat Dyara menuju Stasiun Lempuyangan. Jam 6 kereta berangkat dan jam 3 pagi keesokan harinya, gue selamat sampai Jakarta.

Dan - Gue - Fakhri - Fajar. Di kilometer nol. 


Malioboro. Ceritanya sih buat bukti aja gitu udah
ramean ke Jogja. hahaaha

Terima kasih lah untuk semua yang sudah meramaikan malmingan kemarin di Jogja. Lain kali harus lebih rame ya ke sananya!!! :D
