If someone wanted to really understand you, what would they read, watch, and listen to?
Baca Memori by Windry Ramadhina, nonton film Frances Ha sama Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, denger lagu-lagu di album Back to Black by Amy Winehouse (liriknya gak terlalu sih, tapi nadanya gue banget :P).
Solitude brings you clarity. Believe me, I know. Setelah menghabiskan waktu hampir 7 tahun bekerja sendiri dengan minim interaksi dengan dunia luar kecuali keluarga dan kolega (itu juga seperlunya), saya jadi bisa benar-benar membedakan mana bagian kepribadian saya yang merupakan pengaruh dari pergaulan semasa kuliah dan sekolah, dan mana yang merupakan kepribadian saya seutuhnya tanpa pengaruh siapa-siapa.
