Wonderful Journey December 31, 2008

{Fuhh.. waktu berjalan cepat sekali yah..baru aja bulan pertama di tahun 2008. So many things happened dan semuanya terjadi begitu cepat. Semua kejadian seperti film hitam dan putih yang berputar terus menerus tanpa lelah.

Terus teringat akan nasihat – nasihat orang disekitarku. Ternyata itu tidaklah sia2. Tanpa mereka, aku tidak akan mampu berjalan. Pasti akan terus tersandung, meringkih kesakitan, dan merasa gagal. 

Semua rasa senang, sedih, bahagia, cemas, ragu, curiga, penyesalan, cinta, dan pamrih, campur-aduk menjadi satu. Rasanya aku menyelesaikan tahun ini dengan baik. 

Aku rasa jika aku melihat mereka bahagia, tahun ini akan menjadi perfect. Walaupun aku tidak mampu untuk menghentikan semua yang terjadi. Apapun yang terjadi semua itu pasti baik maksudnya. Semua yang aku peroleh tahun ini, hanya ada karena Dia yg selalu disampingku. Selalu mendukungku. Waktu aku menghadapi kegagalan, Dia mengingatkanku akan keberhasilan. Memberikanku harapan.

Tahun 2009 sudah mengintip dibalik kekelaman malam. Aku rasa, aku harus menentukan arah untuk menyelesaikan semua hal yang masih bergantung. Mungkin bukan saat ini atau di detik detik terakhir tahun 2008. Tapi, aku harus mulai berjalan dengan kepercayaan diri, berharap dan berserah kepada Dia untuk segala hal. Aku tidak boleh lemah, kecewa dan tidak boleh melarikan diri.}

Pikiranku melantur lagi. Tidak disangka tinggal beberapa menit lagi, tahun akan segera berganti. Bergegas aku melangkahkan diri menguburkan pikiranku ke dalam hingar bingar suara keramaian.

Should I be mad
Should I be sad

Simply caused by a simple things
Should you see it already
Or I’m the one who’s blind
Not seeing the closing path

At the end I know my place
If you want me to be there,
I will be there, not because I want it
It’s to abide your request

Let the remains become a history
For time can erase the memories
I’ll let go
Because I can’t hold on

St. Elmo’s Fire – Man in Motion December 22, 2008

The Song that I love from St. Elmo’s Fire composed and written by David Foster. It first sang by John Parr for the Original Sound Track for the Movie; However, I really love it when this song was sang by Michael Johns, one of the American Idol – Season 7 Finalist, on David Foster’s Hit Man DVD.

(John Parr\’s – St. Elmo\’s Fire)

Growin’ up, you don’t see the writing on the wall
Passin’ by, movin’ straight ahead, you knew it all
But maybe sometime if you feel the pain
You’ll find you’re all alone, everything has changed
Play the game, you know you can’t quit until it’s won
Soldier on, only you can do what must be done
You know in some way you’re a lot like me
You’re just a prisoner and you’re tryin’ to break free

I can see a new horizon underneath the blazin’ sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future’s lyin’, St. Elmo’s Fire

Burning up, don’t know just how far that I can go (just how far I go)
Soon be home, only just a few miles down the road
I can make it, I know I can
You broke the boy in me, but you won’t break the man

I can see a new horizon underneath the blazin’ sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future’s lyin’, St. Elmo’s Fire

I can climb the highest mountain, cross the wildest sea
I can feel St. Elmo’s Fire burnin’ in me, burnin’ in me

Just once in his life a man has his time
and my time is now, I’m coming alive

I can hear the music playin’, I can see the banners fly
Feel like you’re back again, and hope ridin’ high
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future’s lyin’, St. Elmo’s Fire

I can see a new horizon underneath the blazin’ sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s flying higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion, all I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future’s lyin’, St. Elmo’s Fire

I can climb the highest mountain, cross the wildest sea
I can feel St. Elmo’s Fire burnin’ in me
Burnin’, burnin’ in me, I can feel it burnin’
Oooh, burnin’ inside of me… (to fade)

St. Elmo’s Fire December 22, 2008

I’ve found my brand new craze: 1980s Movies – I also fall in love with the music behind the scenes. One of the movie that I love is St. Elmo’s Fire.

St. Elmo’s fire is an electrical weather phenomenon in which luminous plasma is created by a coronal discharge originating from a grounded object in an atmosphericelectric field (such as those generated by thunderstorms or thunderstorms created by a volcanic explosion).

Usually the phenomenon sometimes appeared on ships at sea during thunderstorms, and was regarded by sailors with superstitious awe, accounting for the name. St. Elmo’s fire is named after St. Erasmus of Formiae (also called St. Elmo), the patron saint of sailors.

The movie itself, much different than a science movie. The St. Elmo’s Bar was a college-student hangout, the seven main characters still go there despite having graduated from college life, possibly symbolizing their unwillingness to let go of their college years. The 7 Characters are:

  • Billy’s inability to separate himself from his carefree college days and his inability to hold a job.
  • Kirby’s inability to let go of the past and look towards the future.
  • Alec’s self-centered personality and inter-social immaturity.
  • Leslie’s inability to listen to her intuition.
  • Jules’ intellectual immaturity, lack of sensibility and social control, and cocaine addiction.
  • Kevin’s lack of emotional maturity.
  • Wendy’s struggle to break away from her parents’ plans for her future.
I could really relate to the characters sense of trying to redefine who they are. Which at the end, The movie reveals that the life just like St. Elmo’s Fire and it made me feel a bit better about life, after all, we’re all going through St. Elmo’s Fire.

1 Month After December 18, 2008

Wow.. 

It’s been literally a month, which passing by so fast,  that I didn’t write in here at all. Off course I’ve been sick all these times, what else can keep me for not updating my blog. I spent most of my times in bed. Yes.. for those who knows me well, I think, will not believe that I was staying @ home, not going anywhere, and in bed.  It’s not that I have to be in a bed rest, but if I can’t even held myself straight for a minute, I might as well resting in a nice comfortable bed. Didn’t know what happened to me but my body seems to be a sacred place for any kind of sickness. Even my tiny little immune system didn’t seem to bother the sickness at all. As if it got tired for “fighting” all the time.

 

Good things: Hey, I started to like my home.. slouching off the sofa, entertaining myself with 10 seasons of Friends, eating whatever food that I can find, reading 14 books in a row, don’t have to move from my bed for a while, counting how many stairs that I got @ home, how many steps from the front door to the kitchen – from bed to the bathroom – from kitchen to the bathroom, I know… it sounds “sick”.. but.. I don’t have anything to do..

 

Bad things: I missed my friends… *sigh*.. it’s been bad that I can’t go back to Indo with my friends and family. It makes even more worse that I need to spend holiday alone (Christmas, new year, and rainy day)..

 

It seems that I already shed off all of the sickness now, but I will try to keep myself healthy. At least I need my health to go through Christmas and New Year..

 

XOXO,

Happy Holidays Everyone
