REALISTICALLY-SPEAKING: BEING ROMANTICALLY-CHALLENGED

They say life is funny and unpredictable. You think you always know what to do until you are faced with the unexpected. It doesn’t always come from other people or other outer influences.

                Oftentimes, it can come from within – which is yourself. You. You think you really know who you are until the day you surprise yourself.

                After that, you are left with more questions than you can really answer. Who are you, really? You’re a much different person than you were before. You didn’t use to be like this.

                However, people do change – one way or another. Time and space can change them in so many ways. It’s not always bad. Sometimes it’s a good thing, a necessity.

                Some people you know who know you too have noticed those – rather drastic – changes in your life. Somehow, your father’s death has started it all. You’ve acknowledged the fact that yes, life is short. You still want to do a lot, despite so little time.

                Will you be able to do that?

                Anyway, they’ve told you how much they admire you. After your father’s funeral, you took a new job. You moved to live on your own in the central city. You see, that’s still uncommon for Indonesian young women. They always talk a lot about getting married first or moving in with your husband – or sticking with your family and all that jazz.

                Well, you’ve gone past that and become more independent now, your dream life gradually is coming true. How about giving love one more try?

                Hmm, good question. We’ll see.

"THE REALITY SOAP" BY.THE ROMANTICALLY-CHALLENGED
6/3/2012

You might be wondering why I start writing with this title.:P Well, I have my reasons and would gladly share you some here, but it's not fun just spilling all the beans. You just have to figure the rest out yourself, as you go along each entry here.;) If you have the time to do that, thank you very much. I really appreciate it.

So, anyway...what's a "reality soap"? And why am I "the romantically-challenged"?*big evil grin*

Alright, let me jump to question number two first.:P I'll be quick, because the answer is pretty damn short:

Love sucks.:| Enough said.*rolls eyes*

-_'-...

When I was a teenager, I'd thought that reality shows were always real - and soap operas were nonsense. It turns out that time has changed. No, scratch that. I mean, people change. That's why I came up with this title:

"The Reality Soap".

The older we get, the more complex life is. It's just real and complicated at once. Oftentimes, I find it hard to believe. I question a lot, and I'm very critical. That's always been the case with me.

I'm writing here to clear off some stuff in my head. To help me to think and figure things out. To regain my sanity when things get rough.

This isn't just about me, though. This is also about people around me. Anyway, enjoy reading.:)

yours truly,

R.
