Orang tua minta cucu

Pagi ini saya bangun pagi dan menelpon orang rumah. Untunglah, bulan ini rumah ramai. Adik saya bersama seorang temannya, sedang di rumah karena mengikuti Kerja Praktek di kabupaten tempat keluarga besar saya tinggal.

Saya agak terkejut dengan isi pembicaraan si bapak. Dua tiga kali sudah mengarah ke soal menikah.  Ternyata semua orang tua sama 😄😄😄. Bukan apa-apa, selama seperempad abad lebih, beliau paling mendorong dan menasihati tentang belajar, bekerja dan berelasi. Kadang saya bingung, ketika sedang hangat-hangatnya teman-teman saya didorong untuk menikah atau paling tidak ada isi obrolan menyerempet ke situ, orang tua saya masih diam. Waktu itu, saya sih kepengen ditanyai.  Sebenarnya, beliau pernah bertanya ke sepupu, "si Ros sudah punya pacar kah?"

Nah hari ini, beliau mulai jujur  soal perasaannya. Kami bercerita panjang lebar soal pencapaian dan lain-lain, yang kemudian sampai pada kesimpulan

"Kami ini masih kurang di cucu",

Ok fix.

Kakak pertama saya belum ada niat menikah. Masih mau cari posisi yang benar-benar settle dulu keknya. Kalau ditanya suka bilang, "saya gampang"

Saya? Skip.

Nah, adik saya potensial sekali
Bahkan ya bahkan, "dijodoh-jodohkan" oleh bapak dan ibu saya. Saya kaget, orang tua saya ternyata masih sekonservatif itu. Kocak.  Bahkan sejak masih di bangku kuliah sudah dipasang-pasangkan, hahaha. Untunglah, orangnya sih memang niat menikahnya juga cepat. Jadi santai saja bawaannya.

Saya kemudian mengakhiri telepon sambil menelan ludah. Serius ini, orang tua minta cucu! Saya harus apa?

Not fully review

Book for this month is an autobiography of an Australian author, published in 1995. The book's title is "Penny Dreadful- A woman view of the 1950s & 1960s by Penelope Nelson.

As I am not a native, it's quite challenging to read this book. A lot of new vocabs of course, however I can catch the story.  I haven't finished the book yet, but I'm kind of like it because I find it interesting.

The interesting part was about the author childhood with the chapter's title of Summerland. The sweetest thing was that her grandfather wrote a few poems about her granddaughter.

The poems written in many special occasions of the grandfather and the family. I adore the grandfather who find a way to capture special days and memories in poems. She is lucky to have beautiful poems written by one of her  closest person.

Well, that is the end of review for the summerland chapter.

I would like to update some progress of my life as a student (just in case, some are curious, hhihi and would like to support me by praying😉) So, I am in my 3rd semester right now. Just last week I got the approval for the pra proposal. Now I am waiting for the news of supervisor who will guide me. Also I am doing my literature study as well planning budget of the research to be submitted to the sponsor.
And why why why, I post this in English or read English literature? Actually, I find it still difficult for me to speak in English. One of our thesis defense ( open public seminar 2) will fully conduct in English. I am afraid of doing mistakes and ruining my presentation with my lack of preparation. So here I am, doing one step though it is not directly relate to the speaking.

Oh ya, today when I am in class, the lecturer humbly said that he will look forward to the next material together because he is not familiar with it. He earns my respect.

Siblings

"We really are giving the best understanding toward our siblings. Sometimes they are just so annoying and  other times they are just so cute and sweet"
I and my older brother have up and down relationship. We are not that close by calls or texts but honestly I do mention his name in every of my prayer. I don't know when he will realize the important of send texts or calls. May one day.

So the thing is, he and my father had a conversation. Surprisingly, he talked to my father to set me up with someone or ask my uncle for help. He worried that I haven't married yet. Jokingly, my father said that of course he must settle first than me. He replied that it will be easy for him to meet someone, So just worry about me.

Well, well, I do appreciate. It  was sweet of him. However, however let me meet someone as God's plans.

Back to Hogwarts!

Halo September, Agustus yang penuh berkah telah usai. Awal baru untuk semua hal baru, setelah intropeksi panjang di Agustus yang mendewasakan. Meninggalkan hal-hal yang lama.
I am ready for a new chapter.

365 hari lagi, semoga saya sudah ada pada tahap selanjutnya. Tahap di mana hidup yang sebenar-benarnya dimulai.

I would take the train to Hogwarts and end my days and nights take care of my research. I am excited to restart again my potion class and have my own table for my work.
From now, lets sing the  school song of Hogwarts. Dumbledore said to choose a favorite tone and mine now is Gemu Fa Mire. (I don't think the song match with the tune, whatever!)

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts, Teach us something please, Whether we be old and bald, Or young with scabby knees, Our heads could do with filling, With some interesting stuff, For now they're bare and full of air, Dead flies and bits of fluff, So teach us things worth knowing, Bring back what we've forgot, Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
And learn until our brains all rot.

Hey, you, how was you August? Hopefully you had a fabulous one. What are you looking for this bright September? 


Lets dance the Gemu Fa Mire, together. ;D
