The Power of Vulnerability

So I just wrote this post on my other blog. The post made me a bit in a dark mood, darker than usual. Then, I accidentally found the answer to my question (or should I say remedy?) about an hour after. Somebody’s up there must be paying attention so much because I had this kind of moment of posing a hard question in my head and having universe sending me the answer straight away a lot.

Or maybe I am that weird. I don’t know.

Anyway, here’s the summary, watch it if you’re interested. It’s worth it:

Vulnerability is the core of shame and fear, but also a birthplace of joy and connection 😀

Brené Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.

An incredible storyteller indeed :D. A story: a research data with a soul. 😀

The Antigen Works!


noun: antigen; plural noun: antigens
  1. a toxin or other foreign substance that induces an immune response in the body, especially the production of antibodies.


Banyak hal bisa terjadi dalam setahun. Baru saja ‘lulus’ dari banyak hal yang gak ada ijazahnya, gak ada wisudanya, gak ada yang nonton dan ikut tepuk tangan juga. But I’ve never been this proud of myself before ^^

Puncaknya hari ini, I did something that I would never be brave enough to do it before.

I survived.

Demam dan sakit-sakitnya sudah lewat, antibodinya sudah ada dan terbukti bekerja dengan baik.

Saatnya istirahat sejenak sebelum kembali melangkahkan kaki dan belajar lagi 😀



My MBTI Test Results,

 Please read this post also. You are amazing!

Psychology is one of my favorite topics and I am (officially) addicted to every kind of psychological test. From MBTI, 4 temperaments, all through Kokology, I tried it all, and MBTI test (established by Myers Brigg – I believe she/he is the professor of psychology every psychology student knew about) is the one that I took the most.

There’s a reason for why I am willing to diligently answer all the oh-so-many MBTI questions, though. I took the test several times since I was a sophomore in college (that’s more than 10 years before now) and I found that my test results have varied through time. First, I was declared as an ENFP (the happy-go-lucky extroverts who talks too much — based on my self-assessment about myself). I could relate so much to this explanation of ENFP from Heidi Priebe :

When an ENFP says they love you, you can guarantee their heart is turning a thousand miniature cartwheels every time you enter the room. The thought of you drives them wild and their ‘I love you’ roughly translates to ‘My heart is basically BURSTING OUT OF MY CHEST every time I think about you, which is approximately all of the time.’

If only you know how many mini heart-attacks I used to suffer every time my college crush pass my way. T-T

Gak Ada yg Kebetulan.

Masih fresh banget, nih. Dan kepengen banget inget2 kejadian ini sampe nanti2, jadi mending gue abadikan aja di blog.

Mungkin sepele, ya. Tapi gue bener2 amaze.

Jadi ceritanya, kemarin gue sempet lihat video di web tentang orang yang bikin percobaan apa jadinya minyak panas yang tersulut api kalau disiram air (dengan maksud mau memadamkan). Secara gue anaknya emang gak suka kimia, jadi baru bener2 ngeh kalau logikanya adalah, kalau minyak panas dikasi air apinya malah makin heboh, menjalar dan menjilat kemana2, bisa sampe eternit. Ya iya sih secara ada air sepercik aja di minyak panas jadinya suka meletek2 gitu *ini bahasa apa sih*. Makanya disarankan penanganannya adalah kalau ada minyak panas tersulut api, jangan pernah mencoba padamin pake air, tapi pake handuk basah yang cukup nutup si panci, dengan tujuan mutus jalan oksigen biar apinya padam dulu, baru minyaknya ditunggu dingin.

Okesip. Bagi gue kemarin ya tontonan itu sekadar knowledge sambil lalu aja.
