Kindness

I text him. Pending. Once he answers, he speaks in English. One.

My friend tells me that she wants to join an exchange. She asks me too. Two.

They remind me about my TOEFL score is still far from the target. They remind me that kindness comes from simple things.

One day, my best friend shares her mind about inner circle. She meets many amazing smart people with their own achievement. She knows them well. Kalau mereka keren berarti aku juga keren dong? Sebenernya siapa didalam siapa? Tapi aku segera menimpali: apakah kita butuh pengakuan itu semua? Nope.

Then I said that lately I am amazed by an ordinary people. Dia tidak pernah menang lomba apapun. Bukan orang terkenal di kampus. But they appreciate life. They respect others. They share information. They lend their hand. Seperti yang diawal diceritakan, saya diajak untuk ikut exchange. Dia memberi tahu semua syarat dan deadline, tips trik nya tanpa saya minta. Lalu mengajak untuk nekat saja apply. Kalau egois, dia tidak akan memberitahu itu semua kan? Karena saingannya akan menjadi bertambah. But they choose to be kind.

Well, sometimes many achievements blur our eyes. We see good things dari hal-hal yang terlihat saja. Sometimes we forget that kindness and inspiration are around us, in a simple things.

Then, why don’t we try to be kind to everyone?

Pada malam pergantian tahun. Tapi bukankah pergantian tahun sama saja seperti pergantian hari biasa? Bedanya jalan menjadi macet dan orang-orang merayakan dengan kembang api dan bakar-bakaran.

Bakar kenangan.

Introvert. Don’t like celebration that much.
