Page 289: Rolling in the Muck is Not the Best Way of Getting Clean

/ Tuesday, October 21, 2014 /
In the room filled with things labeled as memento, it’s impossible not to remember moments. It’s inevitable not to reviewing what you've been through to be in the place you’re at right now. No matter how distorted memories can be – because feelings sometimes unwind the facts and turn it into something that are more edible for your heart – you can still get the glimpse of what have happened.

And it affects you, sometimes, in the oddest way that you could imagine. Although you have moved on, memories of strong emotion like sadness or guilt – especially guilt, sometimes revolt. When you've made mistakes, there are certain things that can’t be fixed and somehow, you’re responsible – although not fully – for things you achieved. But what else can you do except trying to grab the lesson for your own goodness?

As Aldous Huxley wrote in the prelude of Brave New Word,
Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrongdoing. Rolling in the muck is not the best way of getting clean.

No, it’s not.
Note to self: it's not.

/ Wednesday, October 1, 2014 /
I normally don't post work stuff on my blog, but this is a good program so i thought, "hey, why not?"


So..i've been working on this programme since a few months ago. This programme, Film London Microschool is a collaborative project between British Council Indonesia and Film London. The ambition for Microschool is to stimulate entrepreneurial filmmaking, and to support film-makers to develop a clear vision of the audience and market for their films. The British Council is commited to contributing to the exchange of expertise and best practice between Indonesia and UK. Film London’s Microschool responds to discussions with key professionals in the Indonesian film sectors to further support the continuous growth of the Indonesian film productions.

So this is some kind of scholarship, people!

So check your eligibility and how to apply, here.

Pardon me for putting to many "So"s.

Spread the word! :D

Page 287: Simple DIY Project This Weekend: Create Your Own Cutting Sticker

/ Monday, September 8, 2014 /
As I mentioned in the other post, the best thing of decorating stuff with masking/ washi tape is that it’s repositionable and removable for when you get tired of it. Yesterday, after exhausting week meeting people for work and some freelance project, I decided to spend my afternoon in my room playing with masking tape and create my own cutting sticker for my box. I wasn’t feeling very well too that afternoon, so it’s a good time to recharge myself.


1. Things you need:
A. Tape
B. Tracing/ Parchment Paper
C. Scissors
D. Pen


2. Draw an image on the tracing paper. I drew a deer head shape. You can also search an image on internet, print it out, and place it down on a piece of tracing/ parchment paper. If there is a side of the paper you prefer to use for creating washi tape appliqu├ęs, you want the image to be taped onto that side.



3-4. Cover the side of the paper with strips of overlapping tape. Start from the point where you will peel once the sticker is ready to be used.


5. Take scissors, carefully cut around the traced outline of the image.


6. Carefully peel the image off of the paper backing and stick to the surface of the desired thing.

And done! :)

It's because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.”

Page 285: Simple DIY project this weekend: Recycled Bottle Spoon/Fork Holder

/ Sunday, August 10, 2014 /
Moving to a smaller place is not as easy as moving to a bigger one. No, seriously, I’ve experienced it a few months ago. I had to remove some things or brought them to my parents’ home, like a few mugs and utensils, so my room, the bathroom and that tiny-supposed-to-be-multifunction room won’t look like a Shelob’s nest (if you’ve seen/read Lord of the Ring, you know what I mean).

I put my small dish rack and a few plates in the shared kitchen (on the 1st floor of the building I live in), but keep my cutlery in my room, because it’s easier if I want to eat in my room (which, FYI, is on the 4th floor).

I used to keep my spoon and fork in a box where I also keep my CDs and DVDs. Yep, I didn’t have a spoon/fork holder and kept forgetting to buy it. But one day, I bought a bottle of juice and decided to keep the bottle. I soaked it in a hot water for 10 minutes to remove the label and glue, washed it, and put a silver string around its neck. Voila! I have a spoon/fork holder now.




You can also use it as a vase or..go to pinterest for some enlightenment. Haha.


Cheers!
