I Suck At Keeping In Touch With Anyone (And I’m Not Even Sorry)

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Just this afternoon, I got a message on Messenger from one of my classmates in high school asking for my Whatsapp number.

As salty as it sounds, if I could go back to the time when I was in high school, I wouldn’t. I hate the people at my high school. And I can’t even remember the time when I actually had a good time or even met a genuine person around that time.

If there’s anything that I know about this person that dropped me a message on Messenger, it’s the fact that I really don’t want to bother to get in touch with him. So I ignored his message, pretending that I never noticed its existence.

Other time, one of my former colleague at work called me. Not sure what he wanted, but I didn’t pick up the phone either. I mean, if it’s really urgent, he could drop me a message. But I’m not really in the mood to talk to him or even meet him. So I ignored that too.

In fact, it’s been awhile since the last time I checked some of dating site accounts that I’ve got on several platforms. But one thing that they’ve got in common: I don’t bother to pay extra for a dating site.

Living with Stereotype and Expectation: Being A Sundanese Woman

Reading Time: 5 minutes

I suppose we all agree that it’s almost impossible to live without any stereotype and expectation. In the broader scope, I suppose there are some sexist thing about how men and women do the job or live their life. And to get it smaller, there’s also some prejudice based on things like religion or where they come from.

Maybe you’re the Brit who can’t even make your tea right so you feel like a failure for not being able to do what the society expects you to do. And for us Indonesian, maybe it’s such a failure for never visiting Bali. You see what I did there? I am that failure. 😛

But even among Indonesian, as we get used to dividing ourselves with ethnic, religion, and all that, I came across to make this post. In particular, I’m actually interested to find out what stereotypes that people have towards me.

And this time, what I did is to google what stereotypes out there about Sundanese women in general. I am one of them, and I want to see whether it fits me. And if not, why not?
