DAMN! I am A Procrastinator.

A Deadliner isn't a popular word again for what I'm gonna tell you this time. I prefer A Procrastinator. I hope that it will get the feelings of my unsoimportantlycomplicated situation.

It's been a while since my last writing, no?
I saw myself kinda busy doing lots of things that sort of necessary for my future. 
What is it if u asked me?
Try to get a company or some rich guys to have me as his/her employee and earn some money.
I couldn't help to think that now I'm a big girl that should stand alone in many aspects. Damn great! And for the important thing that I have to search for is MONEY! I really hate this situation. But it is something that i have to give effort to accomplish my development stage. I'm 23 years old, living apart from parents, having a guy that totally fallin' for me *plak!*, doing some jobs that i love to do so, but still can't afford my life-finances by myself. This thing is really get me into the blue. *halah!*
With all the task I should do these days, I'm being a procrastinator now!
Damn Great Sh*t!


Procrastination refers to the counterproductive deferment of actions or tasks to a later time.Procrastination may result in stress, a sense of guilt and crisis, severe loss of personal productivity, as well as social disapproval for not meeting responsibilities or commitments. These feelings combined may promote further procrastination. While it is regarded as normal for people to procrastinate to some degree, it becomes a problem when it impedes normal functioning. Chronic procrastination may be a sign of an underlying psychological disorder. Traditionally, procrastination has been associated with perfectionism, a tendency to negatively evaluate outcomes and one's own performance, intense fear and avoidance of evaluation of one's abilities by others, heightened social self-consciousness and anxiety, recurrent low mood, and "workaholism". According to Robert B. Slaney adaptive perfectionists (when perfectionism is egosyntonic) were less likely to procrastinate than non-perfectionists, while maladaptive perfectionists (people who saw their perfectionism as a problem; i.e., when perfectionism is egodystonic) had high levels of procrastination (and also of anxiety).

I realize the time I'm being one of the procrastinator. I start to be such a procrastinator if I have works to do in the same time, in the same deadline. Weird, no? This situation comes up with feelings such as 'I can do all things done in time! So, let's take a break first!' It's very different when I get only one job to do. The time I used to procrastinate isn't longer as previous situation.
As for this month, I'll try to think that it is the most important month of this year, may be my life. But still, sometimes I feel that this isn't right at all! But when I think about it again and again, what I'm trying to do this month is things that gonna work out for my future. At least, for my life few months again. It's still about money problem I told earlier and how to survive as a real-adult.
Just remember, that I, once, never want to be a grown-up.

As this month started, I have minor problems such as I need new shoes, new comic books to collect, wheat-meal snacks for my diet, monthly toiletries stuffs and my monthly payment room. These stuffs never been a problem if I don't have these plans to do this month. What so important thing is, applying jobs use money too! These civil-servant-occupation-things need an extra budget to deal with! And those minor problems should put away a little-while when I try to fix the budget for the application. This starts to be a boring story about my recently-miserable-life. If you are boring with it, please care to stop reading. If not, thanks for following my arbitrariness.

Now on, I remember that I don't want to talk about my recently-miserable-life. I want to talk about jobs that have been procrastinating by me and what I've been doing in the 'leisure' time.
This months tasks :

  • Finishing 10 design of buckle for muslimah scarf with some youth, young, womanly taste. And I've been searching for inspiration everywhere everyplace I was going to.
  • Applying to some companies and some government-ministry to find some cash. I have to look closely with what they offer, qualifications that I'm in, the result of the administration selections, the writing test, and so on, and so on. I'll stop here. I'm kinda exhausted talking about this.
  • Finishing my colleague research in clinic where I work to. So far, I did 19 patients from the target of 60. Huuufftt...long way to go! 
  • Another research from my boss-docter to make standardize about cognitive-memory-test-score from people in Indonesia. *Yeah, sure it lots to do!* Luckily, I'm not gonna do this research this month.
  • Last job came to me is the short-story-project from my new friends in Reading Light's Writers Circle. I got 'C'. Deadline on 23rd of October. I'm working on the plot story now. Hmmm... Remembered me to write about these guys in The Circle, okay?


That's all for this month I guess.

Procrastinating behaviors I did recently :

  • Watched movies. [Kick-Ass, Before Sunrise, Letters To Juliet, Valentine's Day, Youth to Revolt, Bangkok Traffic Love Story.] I'll write the review later, okay? Remind me of that!
  • Did some house-chores that could help be done later.
  • Sleep late almost every night and wake early to pray and get in to my blanket again after that and sleep till the time I got to go to work.
Okaaayyy...
Enough already.
I will end this writing and try to focus on my drawings first for tonight. Maybe I'll work on my story tomorrow night. Gosh! It feels like 24 hours is not enough, but actually it's enough. It's just me that do this procrastinating-things. Yes it is! It's my damn confession.
:-P

Time to work and say 'Later'.
Enjoy your night.
Read Happily All!
:-)

DILAN 1990, DILAN 1991, dan MILEA

"Jangan datang ke perempuan untuk membuat dia mau, tapi datanglah ke perempuan untuk membuat dia senang."

Saya hari ini sudah menyelesaikan buku MILEA-nya Pidi Baiq versi soft-reading (jangan tanya dapat dari mana!) setelah saya penasaran begitu buku itu keluar. Budget buku saya lagi dikurangi. Hahahaha.

Saya membeli Dilan 1990 dan Dilan 1991 secara terpisah, yang satu di toko buku di kota saya dengan diskon, dan yang satu lagi dengan dalih lagi-lagi penasaran akan kelanjutannya, saya pesan online dengan diskon juga. Ketika Milea keluar, saya hampir mau membeli ikutan PO, tapi saya nggak butuh CDnya. Akhirnya nggak jadi. Begini dan begitu, ini dan itu, akhirnya saya membaca Milea. Setelah selesai membaca Milea, apakah Ayah Pidi akan mengeluarkan buku lanjutan Dilan-Milea lain? Soalnya Milea kan sudah mau tunangan dan Dilan sudah punya pacar yang juga dia pikirkan selalu.Ups....

Saya kaget waktu membaca Milea di awal karena ternyata Milea ini dari sudut pandang Dilan, dan dua…

RIUH JAGAD MAYA

Setelah pilkada Jakarta usai, ternyata keriuhan jagad maya belum selesai.
Wow banget kaka... salut sama kamu-kamu-kamu yang tiada henti entah menebar fakta atau isu atau sekedar pendapat dan pemikirannya atau malah fitnah (na'udzubullah) di jagad maya. Konsistensi yang luar biasa.... *standing applause*
Seakan-akan energimu tiada habisnya untuk mencari dan mencari, sebar dan membagi.
Coba energimu dialihkan untuk lebih keras mencari jodoh dan menggenapkan setengah dien. #eh
Coba energimu dialihkan untuk  mencari keahlian baru yang bisa berguna untuk nambahin CV atau sekedar keterampilan kerja dan kreatifitas. #uh-huh
Coba energimu digunakan untuk berbaikan dengan teman-temanmu yang terputus silaturahminya karena satu atau dua kata yang menyulut pertengkaran yang sesungguhnya tidak penting dan merugikan. #udahsipbelum?
Coba, lagi, energimu digunakan untuk mencari uang lebih banyak supaya bisa mencari restoran yang murah dan enak supaya bisa traktir keluarga besarmu. #yanginisipbange…

SCURVY

SCURVY. Pernah dengar sebelumnya? Nggak? Saya juga tadinya belum pernah baru dengar. :-D Gara-gara cerpen yang saya buat, saya jadi tahu kata ini, SCURVY, beserta arti lainnya. Kalau menurut terjemahan Om Gugel, SCURVY ini artinya CURANG. Curang itu contohnya seperti ini, "Hati-hati awas jatuh ke CURANG!", atau seperti ini, "Tolong tambahkan uang saku bulanan aku donk Pa, CURANG nih buat jajan.".  Garink?  Yes, I Am! :-P
Kali ini saya bukan membahas mengenai SCURVY=CURANG. Ada SCURVY yang lain. SCURVY yang berarti adalah defisiensi vitamin C. Wow! Saya kira tadinya kalau kekurangan vitamin ya namanya hanya avitaminosis. Ternyata, yang ini ada nama penyakitnya! SCURVY. Mau tau lebih lanjut? Enjoy this writing!
