Sampai Jumpa

26harikita

Untuk 26 hari yang luar biasa, sebuah undreamable journey, perjalanan pertama sekaligus terakhir. Tak mungkin bisa diulangi lagi, sebab salah satu dari kita sudah pergi jauuuh tak akan pernah kembali.

Sampai Jumpa – Endank Soekamti

datang akan pergi
lewat kan berlalu
ada kan tiada
bertemu akan berpisah

awal kan berakhir
terbit kan tenggelam
pasang akan surut
bertemu akan berpisah

hei sampai jumpa di lain hari
untuk kita bertemu lagi
ku relakan dirimu pergi

meskipun ku tak siap untuk merindu
ku tak siap tanpa dirimu
ku harap terbaik untukmu

It was almost seven years ago when Allah arranged me an encounter to her. That time, second semester of the first year, we got the same class right after major placement. We were in science program. I can’t remember how we started to engage each other.

A half year ahead, we became the same table friend. Since that, I remember when she shared her food that she brought from her house for lunch, when I taught her mathematics and physics, when we always became an arabic dialogue test partner, when she often kept banana on her locker, etc. We got closer and closer.

I was busy from one competition to another competition as I joined mathematics club in my school. I once took physics and research competition as well in between. But she was never involved in such those activities. All she did was just coming to the class, never really listening to what our teacher was teaching which made me had to reexplain it to her after class, just playing around with classmates, everything was just about having fun. And she never changed it until we graduated from senior high school. I guessed we were in contrast at that time, really.

After graduation, she continued her education out of town, meanwhile I remained in the same town. But being separated in a different island, we stayed in touch through sms, calls and also chats. She once told me that her life, especially in education, was extremely different. A kind of something that force her to be more independent. No one would reexplain to her. In a group assignment, if she didn’t start to work then other wouldn’t too. It was very different but it was good for her. It changed her to a better one.

At least once in a year, she came back to our town and we always provided a time for meet up. Telling how the school was going on, her new close friend, why I haven’t had a girlfriend yet, etc.

Yesterday, we had meet up again. But this one felt like really different edition. She just got her bachelor degree, officially an industrial engineer. The better news was that she has been accepted in a manufacturing company for work. I was so happy. She must be a much much better person now. And I am proud of her!

When we were about to take our leave, she told me that she is really waiting for the next meet up and she wish me for a really soon graduation and for a job as well.

 

 

Selamat pagi, November (1)

Sudah sejak 2 hari yang lalu, rasanya ada banyak cerita yang harus saya sempatkan di blog ini. Entah kenapa saya mengatakannya ‘harus’. Mungkin supaya setahun dua tahun atau N tahun kemudian saya bisa tersenyum-senyum saat membaca ulang sambil berkata dalam hati bahwa saya pernah punya beberapa hari seluar biasa hari-hari kemarin itu.

Baiklah, saya akan mulai cerita.

Setiap orang barangkali punya satu atau mungkin banyak hal yang menurutnya cukup hanya dirinya dan Tuhan saja yang perlu tahu. Orang lain tak perlu. Sore itu saya kira menjadi waktu dimana ada satu orang baru yang tahu apa yang sekian lama saya jaga. Saya ketar-ketir kalau boleh jujur. Dia juga pasti sama terkejutnya dengan saya. Saya tak bisa berpikir sikap apa yang harus saya ambil. Saya cuma bisa diam. Tapi dia teman yang baik sekali, melalukan tanpa banyak tanya. Mungkin itu sebabnya kenapa Tuhan mengizinkannya tahu.

Buah tangan, apalagi jika dibawa dari jauh, yang disengajakan untukmu, adakah yang membuatmu merasa lebih istimewa dari hal itu? Saya kira tidak. Bagaimana mungkin ada hal lain lagi yang lebih istimewa jika itu artinya kau adalah orang yang ada dalam pikirannya bahkan saat kau tak membersamainya? Tapi, saya menemukan bentuk lain dari hal tersebut, yang membuat saya merasa sama istimewanya.

Malam itu dua orang adik kelas saya baru saja beberapa hari kembali dari pertukaran pelajar di Singapura. Mereka chat saya sebab katanya kangen. Kemudian meminta saya datang untuk sama-sama menonton basket. Dari detik pertama saya sampai di hall itu sampai waktunya pulang, pertandingan basket itu tak lebih hanya jadi latar saja. Latar untuk cerita-cerita mereka yang mereka ceritakan dengan semangat empat lima. Menjadi tempat untuk bukan hanya cerita bahagia mereka, saya menemukan bentuk lain dimana saya merasa istimewa bagi orang lain.

Gelembung Rindu

Besok pagi mereka akan berangkat. Malam ini hati ku dipenuhi gelembung-gelembung rindu, semua keping-keping kenangan setahun yang lalu datang satu per satu.

Robby, Nico, Ojan, Vanny dan juga Jandi, selamat memulai perjalanan kalian. Apapun yang kalian kerjakan di sana, please do your very best! Jangan takut… Babeh pasti akan menjaga kalian dengan baik.

Kalian semua terima kasih karena membawa semangat di awal Oktober ini. Sisa yang harus ku selesaikan akan aku selesaikan dengan baik.

Juga Jimmy.. thanks a lot for being there, Jim. It is all possible to do just like you said, isn’t it?

Kecil Officially S.Si

So today you Cil marked yourself as officially S.Si.
Geophysics of Gadjah Mada is absolutely not easy to take, isn’t it? But, you did it.
Congratulations!
I couldn’t be more proud of you. I have no words to say. Speechless. Just Speechless.

That photo that you sent after I asked: A bright smile spreading in your face without showing the teeth as usual (I know that smile), wearing a dark blue shirt with a black tie and black pants that make you look so handsome, and two buckets of flower on your hand. You look so happy.

I wanna cry right now, Cil.
All the memory we had in senior high school just flashing back.
That day that we were crying in the classroom when failed in OSK.
The days when we were busy in our own while preparing for some science olympiad.
Also the day when we were searching our university.

Of course, how could I forget another chemistry fighter.
We three had many great moments together.
After took a midwifery diploma one year ago (I am sorry for not writing any word of it :D), now she is pursuing her next title.

So, now it is only me who still on the court running to put some letters behind my name.
