According to traditional Chinese face-reading technique that my Grandmother once taught me, the left side of one’s face represents the personality that he aims to convey to the public. Whilst the right side represents how he really is, the personality kept only for his Ring 1. 

Or is it the other way around? I kinda forget.

Either way, yeah. One of these is his true personality.

COUNTER // CULTURE

For my photography class I did series of self-portraits in which I attempted to portray culture and counterculture for the past 10 decades. This is the product of that idea…

Indonesia Mengglobal is a non-profit digital social movement aiming to create greater participation of Indonesians in international education. Simply put, they want to help more Indonesians study abroad by giving them mentoring on what it takes to apply to top schools all over the world, how to survive living abroad, and how to excel academically in global level.

Because if you consider yourself a nationalist, then what you should do is get out of your country and show the world what you are capable of. The academy is a great place to start.

Indonesia Mengglobal aims to widen their service to students by giving them scholarships to apply to these schools. As someone who had been in such position, I know how expensive applying can be, from funding your GRE and TOEFL test to paying for the application form.

This is where you can help. By donating you can help Indonesian students to make their dreams come true, and help build stronger visibility for Indonesian academics in global level.

Always mind-blown by the correlation between witch-hunting and many aspects of modern life, from religion to medicine to gender.

I daresay the period has an equal significance to the Industrial Revolution in the way it has shaped us, even to why we dressed up as witches in Halloween.

But then again any great historical events that involves women tend to be buried and forgotten.

A Lesson in Depression

One thing I learnt about battling depression, sadness, anxiety, and its relatives is that they get better once you decided to go out and share yourself with others.

Difficult? Of course it is difficult. I was at a point when I would put the hood of my jacket on when I walk in the mall. And was struggling to get up from bed everyday. But happiness is something I would willingly suffer for.

I wish I had a scientific explanation to this. All I can say is that perhaps the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ principle applies to this; when you do not focus on it too much, it seems to just disappear.

So my suggestion is to not burn bridges.

No Fun

I am constantly being ridden by feeling guilty - and undeserving - of going out and having fun. It is like there is this feeling of never getting to work hard enough to deserve break time.

This is why you should always try to be efficient and disciplined since the beginning of your life. So you do not make unnecessary mistakes, and create a vicious cycle of having to make up for your mistakes.

I may have been sabotaging myself but I know this is true.

I need to work harder than this.

(A bit late for GMT +7 but) Happy Siblings Day!

It is an honour to lead this amazing pack - I hope I have been doing this right. 

And yes, I purposely post this photo of them when they were little because that is what evil big sisters do.

The Nun Who Got Addicted to Twitter

“My superior is a gamer.” Sister Helena Burns said, laughing. “You know you’re a media nun when your superior is a gamer.” 

You might not expect nuns to be experts on Twitter, Facebook, and multi-player video games, but Burns defies all expectations. With 13,790 Twitter followers and counting, the Daughter of St. Paul calls herself a “media nun”: A woman religious with a calling to communicate the word of Christ, in any way she can.
And yes, there is a gamer-superior in her convent.

“She has this souped-up computer,” Burns continued. “She gets her own little ministry out there. Once people get to know she’s a nun, they have questions, or they ask for prayers. But you do have to clean up your language when Sister Irene’s out there.”

I imagine Sister Irene sitting in front of a sleek desktop with neon LED backlights, wearing her bright yellow Grado headphones and concentrating intensely on a multi-player RPG. It’s a funny image—there’s such a symbolic disconnect between the stereotypical idea of a nun and a basement-dwelling teenager who loves World of Warcraft. That’s what’s so fascinating about these sisters and their order: They defy stereotypes about who participates in Internet culture, and how.
So how does a nun use social media?

Congratulating the self for passing the first quarter of a lifetime.

It has been crazy, happy, hilarious, touching, painful, meaningful, and every adjective you can think of at the moment.

But for the time being, blessed would be enough.
