[ r e m i n d e r ]

               even if it is something I wanna do and I like, that doesn't mean bumps won't be there.
when the will power is shaky, discipline takes the wheel and makes sure we're still on track, going to our destination.

[MOVIE REVIEW] NEWNESS (2017) - How love works in the Z-Generation era

I know this time I've been off for like forever. πŸ˜”πŸ˜”
and uhh... good news is that I've finished my Seminar Proposal.
I'm so grateful for that and couldn't thank God enough for all the help He sents to help me go through it in just 2 months. πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ™πŸ™
And right now, I'm in the middle of doing my revision before getting the "licence" to do my reseach.
Also, next week, I'm going to have the 4.2 block examination...
hahahaha.. Like I can't believe there only 1 block left before entering clinical study or coass or cclerckship.
#WishMeLuckOnThis πŸ™ŒπŸ™†πŸ™‹

So, this afternoon, I was group-studying with my girls and I managed to download some new movies...for I haven't watched anything new since all this skripsi thing.
There were Despicable Me 3, Annabelle: The Creation (although I don't think I have the gutbto watch it alone 😧😧), and also Newness.

at the beginning the movie starts with today's setting, people with dating app which actually ends up being hooking-up app. 😝😝
I know it started like super predicatable....but somehow along the movie, I can find myself in there, and to be honest, it wasn't just me.
I remember hearing the stories from my friends.

I guess it's the era or it's just the nature of human to always long for something new, something exited, something adventrous.
But, at the end of the day, we gotta give our own meaning to that, because life doesn't work that way, and LOVE doesn't work that way.

SO... I'd like to give 8/10 for the movie to discuss such real problem in this digital era, where everyone is on the search of something that's 100% like what they want.

And I recommend this movie to all the 20+ youngters and adults who needs something cheesy yet true material to watch.

some of the qoutes I get from Newness :

Paul : "Love is two people who don't give up on each other."
Martin : "You're saying its a choice."
Paul : "I feel like if you think too hard about it, You're just gonna complicate it and fu*k up.You gotta stop thinking ".

Martin : "I dont know, whatever will be will be."Paul     :  "No man. No, see, for love to work and for happiness to work, and for you if you wanna have a family some day, you have to actually pursue it. You know, don't leave it up to fate."  

P.S. : along the movie I was like “ehmmm..this boy..he looks familiar. It's Nicholas Hoult, isn't it?
And yuph!! I got it right!!ahahahah…never forget a cute face..and those blue eyes. πŸ˜πŸ˜œπŸ’•

Oh..that too-wide smile πŸ˜”πŸ˜”

See you as soon as possible.

with love,

Gladys Olivia

What lovers do πŸ’•πŸ’‘πŸ’•πŸ’‘πŸ’•

say say, hey hey now baby....

So what is it that lovers do when they're together?

1. bartering vocabularies

G : "blablabla...." 
N : "yeephhh....babablablaa"

2. transferring knowledge
about this selfish girl at school...
about the kind and smart consulent...
about the homework we haven't done. 

3. obsessing over small things...
like the small,flat nose... 
or all those small facial hairs... 

4. waiting for the right time
until he finishes his Mobile Legend playing session..
or until she finishes her so-called 'important" group chat.

5. reading minds
trying to have his/her mood, wants, feelings figured out

6. letting him/her take your last piece of  fried chicken skin
N : "you gotta eat this...cuz' if you don't I'mma eat it...unconsiously."
G : "hahahaha...go eat it..I'm full already."

7. cultivating the other's preference
N : "I used to not like sweet food, but now you make me enjoy eating 'em.."

8. trynna be a super hero when the other needs help

G : "I think you can say ' stress can be devided into physical and pshycological one. Then how college students are susceptible to phycological stress , especially medical ones."

9. making world-war  III miniatures
hmm....i don't really have to explain the time when you just feel like strangle his neck...

10. but the last... what lovers do is actually trying to  uncover each other's true self  while making it better.
this one goes better with the time...

NOTE : All the illustrations above are from
The artist makes great illustration with witty story...which I love soooo much πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Well,those are just some of my opinions..
Do you have something to add on what lovers really do...

Building an Empire

"... baby I'm from New York 
                              concrete jungle where dreams are made of... "

Hello everyone!
it's the 13th day of KKN already and at the very moment, I'm in Padang for monitoring and evaluation of my team's Pekan Kreatifitas Mahasiswa in Pengabdian Masyarakat ( Community Service ) field.

So... it seems like everyone of my medical friends who are having KKN have been posting their so-called-KKN-but-turn-out-to-be-vacation pictures...hahahha.. 😎😁

I,myself also felt that way.
My slogan was so right ...

" KKN is a summer camp only cheaper....and remoter " πŸ‘΄πŸ˜Ž

My jorong ( it's like village ) cosist of 7 students...and luckily I have Bang Firman, who is my 2013 senior from Medical in my jorong. #Yayness πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘―

Things have been fun. So many new things to learn, to understand.
And one of the finest thing that happened

" Bahaso minang Gladys lah lancar yo..."

It was an honour. πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰
2 and a half year in CIMSA, in which one year being Community Development Coordinator, has thaught me not only the health condition in Padang and the people.. but also the culture, and how to blend with the people... in attitude, and of course in language.

It feels so good whenever i'm put in a community with different daily language, I get to learn them too.
It was first with my junior and high which 95% of my friends were speaking Hokkien (sorry if I mistype it)

And now, in Padang with the Minang Kabau culture.

And I am praying and hoping that when I'm having internship, i go to Bataknese I get to re-learn my own culture and language...before I ughhh "in-laws" and embarrass myself if i don't even know my own culture and language...hahahahha

Thanks God for everything...for the dreams and the way towards them...
for Your ways....

The heart speaks in wordless language

him : " kenapa tiba-tiba diam Nong?"
me   :  #balik natap dia "...gapapa..."
him  :  #PinchingMyNose " Oalah..idung.."
me    :  #Inhaling "....kasih aku kaos kamu ini."

So I guess this will be a chessy post...since I don't really like posting my love story, in picture nor words... But this time, I felt something I never felt before...

Actually Ndutt, I fell in silence and looked the other way just after you told me
him : " Nong..udah tau berita OSCE kita dari PEDIATRIC? "
me  :  " Blum.. hp aku mati."
him : " Jadi katanya kita bakal tetap selesai KKN tanggal 13. Jadi kalau OSCE kita cuman dapat izin di 1 hari-nya itu aja  tanggal 11/12."
me   :  " lah trus perjalanannya balik ke Padang gimana?"
him  :  " ya jadi kita balik sebelum ujiannya, terus habis ujian, balik lagi ke tempat KKN "

Then I just threw my face away and fell silent.
Because I already promised myself that I'm not gonna complain about this 40-day-KKN.
But that was really an unexpected news... making all 2014 students come one day before they have OSCE. Like, God knows where our KKN places are...some in Mentawai (another island), some need 5-8 hour trip to just reach Padang. And, how are we gonna practise all our skill-labs in our KKN place.
How are we supposed to practise making thick blood smear for Malaria investigation skill, checking eye-sight, putting NGT.

That put me in silence.

But I already promised myself. No crying. No complaining. 
So I keep them.

You know Ndutt.. you only said " aku gugup..buat KKN ini."
But somehow, I know it's something more.

Although you only said " keep in touch ya...line, sms sebisanya."
But I can hear the worry behind those words.

And I know you can sense the same from me although I didn't say anything.
Cuz for the first time, you didn't say I was 'cheesy' for asking for your worn T-shirt.
You just went inside your house as I asked you to and give me the one you've just worn.

So yeah...
Good luck for KKN all my 2013 and 2014 student friends.
And my special wishes to PED14TRIC, may God bless our soul, heart, and mind in all this shifting curiculum. May we become a strong-willed and sincere doctors.

And I know I'm gonna be looking forward to meeting these people... Ndutt, Oliph, May, Ulfa, Sari.. and go out full-team with Yoseph, Rio, Sera.
