“Aku mencintaimu, biarlah, ini urusanku. Bagaimana kamu kepadaku, terserah, itu urusanmu.”

Foto pertama itu sama Anne di ruang B310 hari Selasa yang lalu. Foto kedua diambil hari Kamis sore yang lalu di Pizza Hut Banyumanik sama Anne, Ganis, Anggit, Dita, Inak, Amalia, Pipiet, dan Mada, bersamaan harinya dengan Bang Mena lulus dari kampus kelautan. Jumat kemarin komting angkatan baru udah kepilih, namanya Rahmat dari Ilmu Kelautan dan wakilnya Ade dari Oseanografi. Sabtu malemnya jam 7 rapat di Toni Blank. Kemarin Senin baru minjem buku Mekanika Teknik dari perpustakaan, biar keliatan lebih pinter dikit pas besok ngobrol sama gebetan. Hari Rabu jam 2 siang jadwal psikotest dan TOEFL-nya IMSO. Jumat depan hari terakhir buat redeem voucher diskon 10% dari AdorableProjects.com, yang rencananya mau dipake buat beli Budacco Boots nomer 40. Weekend ini ada acara ‘malam syukuran’-nya REGISTER, jadi syukur-syukur Senin depan udah boleh ngaku anggota muda A-Ten. Adnan Kurnianto, koordinator A-Ten, semoga dia cepat sembuh dari sakitnya. Foto terakhir itu foto panoramic mode di Cijeruk. Aku kangen Ibu, kangen Ayah, kangen Mas Anggit juga.

Oktober Insyaallah ke Surabaya, Bandung, dan Jakarta :)

On How To Be The Woman He Loves: An Open Letter

Hi. How are you?

Yes, this is me, your friend, the woman he once loved.

To be honest with you, I am not really comfortable of doing this. I just feel that I need to say something, considering that we haven’t talked much in class as we used to last semester.

So, I just read your posts. Some are very obvious on how disappointed you are knowing that he’s some kind of ignoring your concern and/ or didn’t realize that you have that feeling for him, and how close he is to the other girls instead. You also happen to freshly found out that me and him used to get along quite close for a short time years ago and I guess that’s what makes you create a bit of distance towards me lately. And another thing, by reading your posts, too, I know that you want to know how to get his full attention. I might help you, based on things that he once personally said to me, or about me:

  1. Recite Al-Qur’an. I once took longer time to reply his text and said that I was reciting Al-Quran at the moment. The next time we met he told me that he likes me and the reciting was the strongest reason that made him so.
  2. Dress nicely. There are two types of women when it comes to clothing matters: those who dress to impress other women; and those who dress to impress men. I personally develop the traits to be the second type so you might want to try it, too, to get his (or even the other guys’) attention. Or don’t.
  3. Don’t limit yourself exclusively for him. Laugh at his friends’ (the ones you both had as friends) jokes. Make time for your girl friends and make sure you get involved in the class’ activities. An active and socially accepted girl is always an attraction for guys.
  4. Don’t be shy. I know we’re not on the same perception on how males and females should interact. But what I know from my experiences, guys are not mind-readers, nor gesture-readers. Girls tend to assume that guys are insensitive about their feelings but in fact, those guys had no idea what you’re doing for them because you girls usually hid it very, very well (and you want them to search for something they don’t even know were existed in the first place? Forget it!)
  5. Ask him to help you. Don’t be a girl that will always be there for him but act like you never want him to be there for you. Asking for help is always a good way to build any kind of relationship. If at several points he said that he can’t help you, do not prejudice that he don’t want to help you anymore. It’s ‘he can’t at the moment’, not ‘he won’t for ever’.

I am not here to be such a brainy or super-narcissistic advisor but that’s all the things I know that might help you. The rest is just how you being the best you can be. I know you, though. A beautiful, wonderfully smart, and shaleeha woman. You are better than me in some ways and I guess you actually fit his criteria better than me. You just have to believe in what you got, in what God has given to you.

Godspeed. God bless.
