I Never Write These Things in My Blog

Posted on: January 18, 2011

Tadinya gue mau ngasih judul I WILL Never Write These Things in My Blog. Tapi berhubung salah satu resolusi tahun baru gue adalah never say never, jadilah kata WILL dalam judul gue hilangkan… Yang akan gue tulis di sini adalah hal-hal yang enggak pernah gue ekspos di dalam blog gue, yang memang sebaiknya, enggak gue tampilkan di public space seperti ini. Here we go with the list


Nama gebetan gue

Selama hampir 5 tahun menulis blog, gue cuma pernah sekali nulis nama asli gebetan gue. Itupun berani gue tampilkan hanya karena gue udah belasan tahun nggak ketemu sama dia, dan sampai sekarang pun, gue enggak tahu orangnya ada di mana. Teman gue yang juga mengenal dia sisannya tinggal satu orang aja. So I think, as long as I’m not a celebrity, it’s ok to write his name in my blog, hehehehe.


Proses pdkt yang sedang gue jalani

Pernah nggak, kalian menemukan blog yang isinya cerita gue abis jalan ke suatu tempat sama gebetan gue? Atau menceritakan perasaan gue yang sedang-sedang berbunga-bunga saat itu? Pasti nggak pernah… Kalo kalian klik kategori Love Story di blog gue, yang akan kalian temukan cuma curhatan patah hati dan kenangan masa lalu gue aja. Makanya, buat cowok-cowok yang identitasnya gue sebut di dalam blog, jangan geer dulu! Kalo gue udah mulai nulis cerita tentang kalian, itu justru berarti gue mulai menganggap cerita kita udah selesai.


Konflik sama keluarga

Enggak pernah terbesit di pikiran gue buat nulis soal konflik antara gue dengan keluarga gue. Dalam kehidupan sehari-haripun, gue cuna terbuka soal topik ini sama orang-orang tertentu aja. Karena buat gue, aib keluarga gue ya aib gue juga. Makanya kalo buat yang satu ini, gue berani bilang, gue nggak akan pernah curhat soal masalah keluarga di dalam blog gue. Kalopun suatu hari ada yang gue ceritakan, gue pastikan tujuan gue adalah berbagi soal pelajaran yang baru gue dapatkan, bukan berbagi cerita soal detail dari konflik itu sendiri.


Mencaci maki partner kerja gue

So far, gue masih berhasil menahan diri buat enggak mencaci maki atasan atau klien-klien gue yang menyebalkan di dalam blog. Meskipun kecil kemungkinan mereka baca isi blog gue itu, gue tetap berpendapat adalah hal yang tidak profesional kalo gue mengumbar kemarahan gue sama mereka di tempat umum. Padahal kalo dipikir-pikir, bisa muncul banyak cerita seru kalo gue langsung curhat di blog setiap kali gue lagi sakit hati sama mereka, hehehehe.


Rahasia orang lain

Gue enggak pernah secara gamblang mengumbar rahasia orang lain lewat blog gue. Kalaupun ada yang gue singgung sedikit, tulisan itu tentunya udah berkali-kali gue edit untuk memastikan rahasia tetap aman dan enggak akan bisa tercium oleh siapapun.


Topik seputar seks

Isi blog gue emang macem-macem… Mulai dari kisah keseharian gue sampe review soal buku, film, atau artikel soal kecantikan. Bukan nggak mungkin besok-besok muncul lagi kategori baru di dalam blog gue. Akan tetapi, sampai kapanpun, topik seputar seks tetap nggak akan muncul di dalam blog ini. Gue kan nggak mau blog kesayangan gue ini jadi kayak stensilan, hehehehe.

I used to read a quote written by my former lecture saying that even a bad decision would always be much better than no decision at all. It reminded me of the decisions I put on hold and I asked myself, “What prevents me from making all those decisions?” I could instantly listed down many personal reasons that didn’t even sound good to myself. So there I made a couple of decisions; the good ones and the bad ones, and apparently it was so true: even bad decision was still better than no decision at all. First of all, it helped me to move on. I no longer waited for this and that; I made decisions and I started to make the actions. It also gave me a peace of mind knowing that I owed nothing to anyone, not even to myself. And most importantly, all those decisions made me learn, notably the bad ones. It’s not that I intentionally made a bad one, but well, how did I know my decision was bad until I gave it a try? Ever since the day I decided to stop putting my decisions on hold, my life felt a lot lighter and I have never been more proud of myself. Other people might not be happy with my decisions, but I only do what I’ve got to do and they can’t blame me for having courage to do the things they’re not willing to do. If it holds me back and nobody wants to make the call, then let me do the honor. It’s actually that simple, and again, it sets me free.
My biggest career goal is always running my own business. I have been an entrepreneur even since I was a seven years old. I was never hesitate everytime I saw an opportunity to earn some cash to buy toys and comic books. Graduating from college and starting my first corporate job has stopped me from doing my own business. I was too busy to do something else beside my main job. I tried to run a small jewelry business but then I got bored. I came to learn that if I want to start a business, I have to do something bigger. But of course, a bigger scale own business will also require a bigger effort! The comfort of corporate job made me decide to postpone starting a new business until at some point, it was no longer comforting to me. I still remember one night I went home feeling extremely upset with my boss and I just told myself, “I can’t do this forever. I can do much better than working for a jerk.” Right at that moment, I decided to start my biggest dream: starting my own business. Not so long after that, @thelenstory was born.
There is this one little secret about @thelenstory. There was one particular guy who made me fall deeper with photography. He was so talented he could make an old dirty lamp look beautifully glow in his pictures. I still remember that day on a boat, he took pictures of me and he smiled behind his lens. That kind of smile that made me feel the prettiest girl on earth. I didn’t know why but I just loved seeing this guy holding his camera. I even still loved it when he took pictures of me with his grumpy face! At the end of the day, The Lens Story is way more than just a girl who fell in love. The ups and downs, and all lifetime savings that I’ve spent have been the greatest leap of faith I’ve ever taken in my entire life. That one guy from my past was just a starting point. He was my inspiration, he made me believe that there were many hidden talents like him out there and I would be more than happy to help them start their professional career in photography. That was the very beginning story on how my start-up was born, and to me, that will always be one of my favorite stories to tell.
