SEBUAH KONSEP TENTANG CANTIK


Cantik.

Sebagai sebuah konsep, cantik mempunyai arti yang luar biasa luasnya. Arti kata cantik telah bervariasi sepanjang waktu karena berbagai budaya dan persepsi dunia yang sangat berbeda. Kecantikan telah didefinisikan dalam banyak hal.

Cantik (a): elok; molek (tentang wajah perempuan) - indah dalam bentuk dan buatannya. - KBBI. 

Beauty (mass noun): a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight. - Oxford Dictionary

Kamus menyebut kecantikan sebagai kesenangan estetika atau kesenangan indera. Tetapi karena kesenangan estetika didefinisikan sebagai kesenangan yang berasal dari sebuah penghargaan terhadap keindahan, it doesn't help. Kamus juga menyebut kecantikan sebagai kesempurnaan bentuk. Apa sih kriteria sempurna? Keseimbangan dari unsur-unsur yang berbeda, mungkin?

DROWNING


I'm breathing
Dark skies covered my mind
The sun is too afraid to touch me

I'm drowning

Swallowing the lumps of anxiety
Facing my own monsters

I'm screaming

The overwhelming
The madness

I'm breathing

Days get harder
Nights get colder

I'm drowning

by
my own thoughts.



- excerpt from my diary back in August 2018.

WHAT'S IN MY GO TO BAG


This is the kind of bag that I quickly grab before I walk out of my room to do some errands or even hanging out. It is a leather satchel from Fossil. I love the colour, it goes with every outfit that I wear and also came with handles and long straps too! I find this is the perfect size for me to carry all of my belongings, not too small, not too big. 


The things that I carry in this bag literally saved my life in so many days. I used to always have so many things in the bag - well, I probably still, but now I only carry things that I need the most throughout the days. 

Let's take a look at what's inside!

TV SERIES | GAME OF THRONES - FINAL THOUGHTS (SPOILER REVIEW)

Copyright to HBO
I started watching HBO's masterpiece back in 2011, a few months late since it aired. A friend of mine recommended this show to me. I was binge-watching and finished the show within a few days. Yep, I am crazy that way! 

I love Game of Thrones! I don't think I've ever had this much patience to stay loyal and keep watching a very violent show. If you know me, you knew I hate violence at all cost. Every so often, too often even, I closed my eyes and felt sick afterwards. But the idea of this show, the complication, the characters' stories, everything about this show but the violence asked me to keep watching. So I did. 

There are so many great things about this show. I'd say Game of Thrones is one of the greatest shows of all time. That being said, the plot was so fine. Yes, this show has so many characters with a different and complicated story. Drama, action, mystery, murders, and dragons. Magical isn't it? 

Not only the plot but the characters development is probably the best I've ever seen in a show. It's hard to choose a favourite because everyone has their own great time to shine. Everyone came from their lowest to their highest moments and it felt like we were there. It's also hard to hate everyone because they had strong reasons to do what they did - except for Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson), that little shit. One thing that easy? Everyone was so memorable.

The acting, no doubt. The visual? What a masterpiece! They shot the entire show in Ireland and studios but truly, everything seemed like in the other world. So beautiful and magical! The same feeling that I got when I watched the Harry Potter franchise.

BEAUTY | EVERYDAY MAKEUP LOOK


Well, not every single day I use makeup. This is the look that I'm going for whenever I go out like running errands, go to uni, or hang out with my friends. Pretty much the look that I feel I'm most comfortable with. 

To achieve this look, I need maybe ten to fifteen minutes depending on what kind of documentary or TED talks video I watch. I love watching something educational but also easy to understand. Sometimes, I also listen to the podcast. Or sometimes, watch random YouTube videos. You know, it all depends on the mood.

MOVIE | AVENGERS: ENDGAME (2019) - SPOILER REVIEW

Copyright Marvel Studios
I don't know where to begin.

I have watched the movie seven times and every viewing felt like the first time. Avengers: Endgame is the culmination of eleven years or 22 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Within 3 hours, this movie expected to answer every question we had for the past eleven years or so. 

Before I talk about the movie, I just want to say how grateful I am for MCU. I have always been a fan in my entire life either to a musician, to a poet, to an actor, to an actress, to the director, to everyone basically. I always show how much I adore something, show how those things affect my life, and show people how those things mean to my life. But, I have never, ever, feel so alive for the past eleven years just to wait from one movie to another, analyze and build up my own thoughts and theories. MCU made me feel something different. Even when people where I live said that I'm too old to show how crazy I am over this thing.


Avengers: Endgame literally fulfils my dreams and my wishes. This movie is like fan service, a reward for fans loyalty after all these years. 



I didn't know it was possible to feel as if a movie was trying to physically rip you in half.

The best way I can share my thoughts on this movie is to divide into general thoughts and characters. I hope you can bear with me, this is going to be a long ass review.


Alright, shall we begin?
