What’s So Funny About Tumblr

15 Jul

Did you remember my last post about Tumblr (to read it click here)? I mentioned something about ReBlog and Heart-This-Post features on Tumblr.

So recently I rejoinned on Tumblr. Only this time, I was able to distuingish the difference usages of my WordPress and my New-Tumblr (to read it click here). I had the later to record my journals related to my activities in learning other languages. I wished that I wouldn’t fail like the last time I had a Tumblr blog. I really wished that I wouldn’t because it showed a certain tendency to reach that stage, again :p

At first, I seemed to successfully fulfilled my purpose on Tumblr. Until one day, I did tumblr-blogwalking. Then I started to follow Tumblr blogs that had nothing to do with my origin purpose. At that time, I thought it would only be for fun.

By following any blogs, again, on Tumblr, it made me remembered something about that I’ve actually already found when I first joined it. This following, reblog, and heart features on Tumblr made the bloggers follow any Tumblr blogs that interested them, also reblogged and or hearted any posts from the Tumblr blogs they followed. And I also fall for it. I reblogged some posts that had nothing to do with my purpose on having a Tumblr blog 😐

I think this is the reason why there are so many non-personal blogs on Tumblr. Too many people published their works on some administered Tumblr blogs. And you wouldn’t imagine how many times an interesting post would be published on different Tumblr blogs. Redundant posts, of course.

There are many Tumblr blogs that are focused on publishing some certain things, devoting the blogs to only one topic. Like this Tumblr blog that I recently joinned due to my big interest on Russia (to read it click here). This Tumblr blog devoted to be photography blog (to read it click here). This one devoted to publish quotes on the blog (to read it click here). Or this Tumblr blog because of my big interest on German National Football Team (to read it click here), especially Thomas Mueller 😉 Definitely not a kind of personal blogs that we usually find in WordPress and or Blogspot.

You wouldn’t imagine how many posts that the owners of that kind of Tumblr blog would submit every day. Wait until you follow them. And just by following a Tumblr blog that publishes anything about Thomas Mueller, I already feel like one of Mueller’s cyber stalker haha 😉

Environment Does Really Influence Us

4 May

So i suddenly remember to what my former english teacher once told me:

Be like a fish. Even if the sea is salty, the fish is not.

He taught me to always remember who I truly am where ever I go, no matter what will the environment influences me, in the bad way. I mean, let us say that the salty water does not give any direct benefit to the fish. So, even if the environment of the fish, the sea ofcourse, is salty but the fish is not. It remains vapid till the rest of its life.

So do we. Let say the environment that does not give any direct benefit to us just the same with the sea above. So we, as the entities of the environment, are the same with the fishes. Let the bad environments contact or not contact us, but do not let the bad environments influence us. We have to keep steady, just the way we are. We have to remain same as the person we used to be, due to the bad environment that is going do destruct us.

It might be hard to do, especially if we already in the bad environment and already influenced by it. Just always remember who we truly are, and how we want to live this life. By then, we might be able loose from this bad environment, and stand on our own two feet. That we can declare who we are and what we want from this life. And we do not have to hide ourself anymore from others, or follow what the environment tell us to do, that is not us, that is not what we really like.

Please try this at home. Even it’s hard. Even it made us blocked by the environment. Remember, it’s the bad environment that blocked us. Just find another one that is better, and suit us more.

happy trying

Yes, We Are Different

27 Mar

“When you encounter people who are different from you, don’t judge them by how they look or act; instead base your opinion on the contents of their heart.”

So I read this quote somewhere a long time ago. It’s not the matter where I got this, but the value of the quote is the more important thing for us to discuss.

When meeting someone who is different from us (by the physical appearance, the state of living, the way of act, the point of view, etc) for some people, that situation is quite a difficult thing to face. Especially when this someone is close to us, so close to be in the circle of our daily activity. This person could be our neighbor, our schoolmate, our classmate, our friend, our bestfriend, or even our own sibling.

We can be with this different person, but inside we actually asking ourself, “Why do I go with this creature?”

This “emo girl” that we can’t accept beacuse we love peaceful..
This “unfashionable girl” that we can’t ge along because we’re so feminine..
This “poor guy” that we hate to go with because we usually spend lots of money..
This “not good looking person” that we don’t like because we’re the beautiful ones..
This “geek” who is so not okay because we’re the party persons..
This “nobody” that is not us because we’re so famous..

Do we really ask that question or we actually can accept the way the person is?

Are those kind of people who are lying to us (that he/she is okay going along with us when he/she realize that he/she is the one who is different) or we are the ones who are lying?

Maybe we’re not that peace-lovers.. We get the beats sometimes
Maybe we’re not that feminine.. We sometimes need little time to break of being some barbie dolls
Maybe we’re not that money goers.. We appreciate our parents money when we see them come home from work
Maybe we’re not beautiful-handsome clique persons.. Hey they’re God living creatures also, just like us
Maybe we hate party sometimes when we’re tired of that kind of life
Maybe we’re not that famous… We think we are

“The truth is often far beneath the surface. Look beyond the masks people wear if we want to know their heart. And remove our own masks to let people know ours.”


Don’t lie to others.. even to ourself. Just try to know harder which kind of person are we? People who can’t take differences or preople who see that difference is greatful and merciful.. That being different person from common is being for what we are and what we love, no matter what people say because this is us and this is our life

We are still with somebody different because we love them and we know that they are the good people and we can accept the differences because God created us to live in differences in life

Live in a Lie

13 Mar

Why is it so easy for people nowaday to lives in a lie? Thousand times i think about this and never get the answer for it, not until a few days ago. Let Mother Theresa answers it for us:

It may not be too difficult to DO good, it is more difficult to BE good.


What do I mean by lie here is being somebody that is NOT us. Living a fake life that is so not us. By do something good, do something that is just not ourself, simply because we want to impress the others. Or maybe we do not want to look bad. Or just because we do not want other people think about us the way we do not want them to, which is actually the real us.

Let me give an example here.

There is a couple of young man and young lady who walk at the pedestrian, on the way to the lady’s home. At this lovely walk, a beggar comes toward them. With his pity look, the beggar begs for their pennies for him to get a meal. Without think any longer, the young man gives him his money while the young lady only smile at him. The thing that the young man do is good thing, no matter the begger deserves the money or not.

But what is the young man really think when he give the money? The young man thinks how lucky he is with the life that he lives in, and he feels pity for the beggar. So he gives the beggar money as one of his social activity. And he usually do it, no matter when, no matter where, and no matter who he walks with. Then you must be agree with me, that what he do is being a good person. But what if the young man think the opposite way?

What if the young man thinks that the beggar is not wothed to get his money. That the beggar is poor because of the beggar owns fault. That the beggar is only disturbing him by asking for his money. And he never gives any beggar money, no matter how much money he has at the time, no matter how thankful he is to God. Except for this special occasion that he walks beside the lady sides, and he really does want to impresses her.

Some would say it as a social responsibility, that we need to do (and be) good because we are not alone in this world, that we live in society. So we need to do (and be) good, if not then the “bad person” judgement will go to us.

I am so agree with people being good. BUT if that means we have to lie to others, I do not think that is a good thing anymore. Why? Because we are, in fact, lying to ourself (it is the important thing of all) by doing so. If we are being this good person but the fact that we are not and we do this because we are trying do be good, I think it’s a different thing with us being this good person but the fact that we are not and we do this because we do not want other people think bad about us. That what I called as live in an ACT as a good person.

You heard (okey.. read) me, ACT. We are acting the good person role in our life. Believe me, if everybody believes us when we live that that kind of life, we are so the good actors/actresses. And there are so many people out there who see their lifes as living films. It could be me, sometimes, someplaces. Well… Hollywood here we come babe 😀


morale: Just be who we are. People who can accept us the way we are, is those who is real to us.

just do it

Let me tell you about my favourite quote from Batman Begins the movie. Bruce Wayne one said:

It is not what I am underneath. It is what I do defines me.

Can’t you see the magic of those words? That’s what a brave man*(1) would say. That we act something. We do something, start from what we thoughts. What we want. We can not just mumbling inside but do nothing real to get what we want. Or we just keep the thougths to ourself.

If we see something that we think not good happens, we have change it. To fix it to be good. If we don’t have the power to do it, then ask other’s help to get it done. It’s not the matter who solve the problem at the end, the most important thing is who took the act to strated it. Once again, only a brave a man can do it. Those who doesn’t have the guts to do so, would only keep for themselves. They would say “As long as I’m not the person who do the bad thing, then it’s fine for me.”

You can really see the difference between those two two state, can’t you?

The faint heart would say “I want this. This is what I want. I need it to be done. How could I not achieve what I want? BlaBlaBla…”. They would only keep questioning the things that happens to them, without do some act to get what they want. If they want freedom, break the cage that covers them. They can’t just wait for someone to give them the freedom. If they want to be rich, do something (legally please) to get them as much money as they want. If they want to get to Paris, hell….as easy as one. Simply buy the ticket to go there. What about the money to buy the ticket? It’s another condition that should been solved. It’s all a matter of act, nothing else.

While the brave one would say “I want this, okey I’ll do that. No matter what happens, no matter what the result is, I’ll do it. Because it’s my responsibility to realizing what I want.” These kind of people, when they want their freedom, they’ll break the edge no matter how hard it is. If they want to be rich, they’ll work hard the earn lot and more money. If they want to go to Paris but have no money, they simply search and find the money to go there.

Faint heart never won a fair lady.
-Meg Cabot. The Princess Diaries-

This lady is something precious to us. Our treasures. That we really want to get in our life. Dare ourself to do something. We might be succesful, we might lose it. In the end, the result is not really important. The more valuable thing is the process of making what we want happens. Of doing something. Because we’ll get nothing if we done nothing. Even if we do really failed, at least we’ve tried.
