Hurra…!! Schließlich ist dies, der erste Beitrag auf Deutsch. Ja, ich versuche diesen Beitrag auf Deutsch zu schreiben. Natürlich benutze ich Google Übersetzer. Das Momentum im Titel, die ich meine, ist tatsächlich „momentum” in Indonesisch1. Ich habe in den letzten paar Monaten in kurzer Zeit viele Erfahrungen gesammelt. Also möchte ich sie hier teilen. Das Wichtigste ist die Lektion, die ich von ihnen gelernt habe.
Well, I’m sorry, it’s kind of tiresome to write German. Let alone, I have sort of stopped learning it for some time. And actually, I don’t really learn it well. Just look at the title above. I even still confuse what word should I use for “my”, whether mein, meinem, or meines. I’m still afraid of learning what it’s called cases in German: Nominativ, Akkusativ, Dativ, und Genitiv. It’s obvious that I need to ditch that fear first, to mastering German.
In spite of that, let’s continue the discussion. We all are living the consequences of the decisions we made in the past, so do I. Now I feel that most of decisions I made had taken me to my current life. I mean, these are the moments I expected.
Speaking of which, over the past year, I got sort of “compressed” experiences. Or perhaps it’s more like accelerated experiences. In that period, I have moved to a few cities. It’s not solely my own will, but there’s a necessity. And I don’t know if it may be called a coincidence, that one day I wished I could travel around (and be a traveler actually) and it’s like a dream come true.
Edit: I haven’t written the lessons I got in that period as I told in the first paragraph. Unfortunately, I didn’t write them elsewhere, and just relying it as my new character instead. So, I won’t write all of them, just a few. The first one is it’s obvious that everyone need to travel around, as Mark Twain once wrote:
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime
Before it, I was basically a monotone person that nearly never go out, especially for vacation. So, that opportunities to travel –even though not for vacation– were too good to skip. And I used to think that traveling is non-sense, useless. But now, I see the importance of traveling, that can refresh our mind and soul. And yeah, we need a break sometimes.
The other lessons are mostly about something that opened my narrow mind. Most of my “idealism” were like got their antithesis or something like that. Meeting new people with distinct opinions is like refreshing my mind, and opening my blind mind. And now I understand that this world is amazing. I’m so grateful to live in this world right now.
The thing is, I sort of find myself in this journey. Something that I thought I already done before. And actually, there are other things in this world that I don’t understand yet. Well, finally, this is my momentum1 that I have to make the most of it for the sake of my bright future. There’s no other option than I have to keep it up to reach my goals and to find the better of me, myself. Wish me luck!
