Review: Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

Lika-liku hidup dan persahabatan adalah tema buku ini secara garis besar. Jika dikerucutkan lagi, buku ini sebenarnya berbicara tentang kehilangan.

Tsukuru, tokoh utama dalam buku ini, telah kehilangan pertemanan yang (sangat) dekat dan berharga. Menyisakan ruang hampa di hatinya sampai merasa mau mati. Tidak ada hentinya berpikir dan kemudian menelusuri apa yang salah pada dirinya hingga dicampakan begitu saja oleh teman-teman terdekatnya.

Trees.

Mood:

Meadow. Forest. Trees. Green. I want all of them. I want to visit such a place. Sleeping, hiding, smelling the fresh air, only.

Or,

Picking some flowers–making a crown by it, playing with the animals there.

Seems much more relaxing than in a crowded-big-city, huh? 🙂

Btw, I know where you stand. Silent in the trees.

Why won’t you speak?

Conquering the city.

A curious and adventurous girl: something I’ve just discovered from myself. I realized it now from the way I feel towards any place with its adventure possibilities–when I thought about that.

I love to explore new places, I feel it cool to go somewhere alone. Also, I never feel like a lost child to be somewhere alone, instead, I feel like the main character of a book or a movie. Seriously, there are so much you can do by being alone. Capturing some random pictures, talking to strangers, learning something new, or simply just clearing your mind. Hence, here I dare myself to make a trip to a city I’ve never visited before alone, maybe Surabaya or Jogja, this year (I hope). Not easy, I know. My trip to Malang last year just easy because I have a friend there who took care of me, someone I dearly miss now.

Yes, I love to be accompanied by friends too, don’t get me wrong. But I’m just not a type of girl who will cancel my plan to go somewhere just because there’s no accompany. I just think “why don’t go there and find what I can find alone?”. You don’t always feel lonely by being alone because there’s a huge difference between ‘alone’ and ‘lonely’, though. 

Lately, too, I’ve been thinking about what an ideal happy life is. And I thought about a city, a strange city I’ve never visited before. But this city, however, scrathed a smile on my face. I imagined myself woke up in the morning on my warm and comfy bed next to a window where a friendly sunshine happily said hi to me. I will dressed up, ready to look around the city by my bicycle or even just take a walk then stopping by on a bookstore or a coffee shop. Better if there’s a park with a river to simply just enjoy the moments. Alone, or with a lover 🙂

Apa, sih, yang Dibutuhkan untuk Perjalanan ke Luar Negeri?

Melakukan perjalanan ada beragam tujuan, jenis, dan manfaatnya. Ada yang melakukan perjalanan untuk berlibur, ada yang melakukan perjalanan untuk menyelesaikan urusan bisnis, ada juga yang melakukan perjalanan untuk urusan pendidikan atau menuntut ilmu. Melakukan perjalanan pun bisa ke berbagai tempat tujuan, dari tujuan yang dekat hingga tujuan yang jauh seperti luar negeri. Meskipun demikian, tentunya melakukan perjalanan ke luar negeri itu tidak semudah melakukan perjalanan ke tempat yang lebih dekat atau domestik. Persiapan yang dibutuhkan untuk melakukan perjalanan ke luar negeri pun bisa dibilang lebih banyak dan lebih membutuhkan persiapan yang matang.

Someone to Stay

You were alone, left out in the cold
Clinging to the ruin of your broken home
Too lost and hurting to carry your load
We all need someone to hold

You’ve been fighting the memory, on your own
Nothing worsens; nothing grows
I know how it feels being by yourself in the rain
We all need someone to stay
We all need someone to stay

Hear you, falling and lonely, cry out:
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
At the end of the day you were helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?

You’ve drunk it down and you’ve spat it out
And nothing tastes like the things you had
So turn it off, why don’t you let them go?
We all need someone to stay
We all need someone to stay

Hear you, falling and lonely, cry out
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
At the end of the day we’re helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?

You were alone, left out in the cold
Clinging to the ruin of your broken home
You were falling and lonely, cry out:
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
The end of the day and we’re helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me?

Hear you falling and lonely cry out:
Will you fix me up? Will you show me hope?
At the end of the day we’re helpless
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?
Can you keep me close? Can you love me most?

AURORA

Found her (music). It’s like a treasure ❤ Her kind of music really fits me well. I mean, sure I have many favourite singers and songs beside her, but this one… I just lost my words for describing how good and beautiful it is. Not only the voice and the songs are good to hear, but the lyrics are also deep, I can feel her soul in it. And, somehow, I can so relate to it. I love the concepts of a girl wondering in the adventurous world, kinda lonely, asking for help but also brave: that’s what I get from the lyrics and the music videos. Just watch it by yourself, and you’ll see. If you like it and feel something when watching her music videos, then maybe our souls have something in common 🙂
