Quote-Of-The-Day: Jack Skellington - The Nigtmare Before Christmas

"You know, I think this Christmas thing is not as tricky as it seems! But why should they have all the fun? It should belong to anyone! Not anyone, in fact, but me! Why, I could make a Christmas tree! And there's not a reason I can find, I couldn't have a Christmas-time! I bet I could improve it, too! And that's exactly what I'll do!"

-Jack Skellington in Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas-


Greetings to Earthlings: Merry-Happy-Alien-Christmas!!!!

"Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.

To a friend, your heart.

To a customer, service.

To all, charity.

To every child, a good example.

To yourself, respect."
-Oren Arnold-

So, Mr. E just want so say,

Be festive, be joyful, be thankful, and be who you are...

Grey's Anatomy group on Facebook

So, for the last couple of days, gue berkutat dengan Facebook melulu. NO! Not addicted to Pet Society or any other application of FB, I'm just uploading some pictures. Heheheh...
Then, I found this group about Grey's Anatomy fan, and basic description-nya ditulis seperti ini:

{You know, for the ♥ hardcore followers.}

...the ones who are almost-serious about the scalpel thing.
...the ones who use Grey's to escape their own pathetic lives.
...the ones who cry when they cry
...the ones who use Meredith's narration as mental therapy
...the ones who wish they were as hardcore as Cristina
...the ones who think surgeons can hear you when you scream at the TV
...the ones who wish someone would look at them like McDreamy looks at Meredith.
...the ones who wish they were as bad-ass as Bailey
...the ones who get a warm, fuzzy feeling when they hear "Cosy in the Rocket."
...the ones who McName their McLives
...the ones who consider a career in medicine despite their lack of science skills
...the ones who frequently exclaim, "Seriously? Seriously!"
...the ones who pause the DVD even though they've seen the episode ten times
...the ones who set their phones to Silent mode
...the ones who plan their Thursdays accordingly

>> See you Thursday nights <<
[click the link to go to the FB group, don't forget to log-on to the FB account, ok?]

If you're a big fan of the TV show, you'll know what it means, seriously....

Mr. E is SO GOING to watch Grey's Anatomy Season 5 episode 9 & 10 tomorrow!!!

It's a (not so) Beautiful Life.... *a friends note from Facebook*

So, today (no, not today, it was posted yesterday actually...), I got a note from a friend in her Facebook page. After I filed a permission to her, now I can posted in my blog. Read it, pretty inspiring.

"To those whose glass are half-empty,

Ever think about how capable humans are in hurting each other?
Whether or not we do it on purpose, people LOVES to hurt others all the time. We are terrible to the people we love. When we are going through rough patches in life, it somehow feels perfectly normal to take it on one another. It isn't fun, but it is what people do.
What WE do.

We make them cry who care for us.
We cry for those who never care for us.
And we care for those who will never cry for us.
The bitter facts of life.
Strange, but true.
It doesn't make you or any other person the world's meanest villain.
It just make all of us, beings that make mistakes... of which we live through and learn from.

We face our own monsters every day.
Self doubt.
We fell low bizzilion times (if such word even exist) over and over again. But hey! Who am I to judge? Falling is human's most humanely trait. Inevitable, and at times, needed for that extra pinch (or most of the times, smack) of a wake up call to do better.

But then again, don't you ever stop and wonder..
If we quit today, what brighter things the new day shall bring tomorrow?
So.. for that one simple reason..
I salute all of you my dearest friends.
To sorrow and pain..
to tears and rain..
For holding up and carrying on your lives.

It is anyway, the greatest gift ever given.

Merry early Christmas everybody :)"

Mr. E is feeling inspired today....
Thanks Becks!

Quote-Of-The-Day: Meredith Grey - Grey's Anatomy

"At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines... that are way too dangerous to cross."

-Ellen Pompeo as Meredith Grey in Grey's Anatomy-

Find Me a New Job....

So, on this beautiful day, on my 25th birthday, I received a very unpleasant-yet-sad news from my boss. I was being let go from the office, yup, gue "dilepaskan" dari kantor gue yang sekarang.
Tapi FYI, gue dipecat-fired-got-the-axed-diberhentikan secara baik-baik dan penuh pengertian. Gue mengerti 100% kenapa gue tidak bisa melanjutkan lagi bekerja di kantor gue yang sekarang Alasannya adalah, tidak adanya budget untuk gue di tahun depan. No matter how hard my boss tried untuk mempertahankan gue, tapi kalo memang tidak ada budgetnya, beliau tidak bisa berbuat apa-apa.
*FYI: Status gue di kantor ini hanyalah "freelance", dipekerjakan karena membutuhkan staff extra untuk membantu pelaksanaan event-event*

Reaksi pertama waktu diberitahu oleh boss gue adalah, gue sangat tenang dan sangat menerima. Gue bingung kenapa gue bisa setenang itu, but I did. Tapi sehabis pembicaraan tersebut, baru perasaan gue campur aduk. Kaget, bingung, sedih, semua jadi satu. Gue mesti gimana nih? What should I do? Hampir lupa, how can I tell my family *especially my mum* that I just lost a job? I'm freaking out, TOTALLY FREAKING OUT.....

Gue dengan berat hati menerima kenyataan bahwa gue memang harus keluar dari kantor gue yang sekarang dan mencari pekerjaan di tempat lain. But, I'm OK with it. I know my position at this time and if I'm being let go, I have to accept that, no matter how hard it is. Untungnya, boss gue memberikan waktu kurang lebih 2 bulan untuk mencari pekerjaan baru, so, start your engine, I'm going to find myself a nice job!

Tapi yang harus dipikirkan sekarang adalah bagaimana gue bisa mencari pekerjaan yang baru, dengan gaji yg kurang lebih sama dengan gaji gue di kantor ini, letak kantor yang mudah dituju dengan kendaraan umum *supaya-ga-berat-di-ongkos*, dengan pekerjaan yang mungkin lebih berat tapi bisa gue nikmati. Gue cuma bisa berdoa, "God, help me, I really-really-really need Your help, help me find a new job, please...".

Untuk teman-teman gue yang bisa bantu gue untuk mencarikan pekerjaan, please let me know, ok? I need some help from you guys!
Thanks a bunch....

So, now Mr. E is counting the days until the day I leave my office. I'm ready to go.
*Ook, maybe not THAT ready, but I'm trying to..."


Suddenly 25!!!?

So, today, 3rd of December 2008, approximately 12 hours ago, I just turn 25.

Twenty Five.

25th (Twenty-FiveTwenty-Fifth)



A quarter of century

Silver wedding anniversary

Christmas day

and many-many-more.

Ah, sedih juga, tidak ada perayaan apa-apa, tapi it's ok, seperti oma gue bilang, "Ga usah pake kado-kado-an, yang penting, hari ini, pada saat ini, kamu masih bisa bernafas, masih bisa makan, masih bisa tidur di kamar, pake AC, masih bisa pergi ke kantor, pokoknya yang penting kamu masih hidup dan sehat-sehat, semua dicukupkan sama Tuhan."

Bener banget ya? I don't need those materialistic-yet-shallow things, hanya untuk memuaskan nafsu gue. I should be thankfull for all the things that God give me, I'm still ALIVE until this very day, after all the melodramatic events that happened this year.

Mr. E is thankful on his 25th birthday.
