Night’s Lover

Night is my loyal friend. I love Night. Night could always understand me. I feel very safe in its embrace. Silence and cool breeze are what I miss the most from night.

I love the night, but I am afraid of the moon. I can’t exactly figure out why I fear the moon, maybe it is because its arrogance. Moon is only reflecting sun’s light, but it seems like those lights are its own. I don’t like it. It is so artificial for me.

Still, my fear for the moon never make me hate the night.

Stars. They probably are another reason why I love night.

twinkle twinkle little star

how I wonder what you are

I wonder.. Stars are shining. They shine their own lights, but never defeat the fake moonlight. Even though their lights are not as bright as moonlight, starlight is giving me hope. For me, stars are tough. They taught me how to keep shining, even if others won’t understand why you do it. They taught me that even if you seem to only accomplish small thing, you did accomplish something and there are people who are inspired by your efforts. Just like how stars keep inspiring me to make steps toward my seems-like-impossible dream.

Tonight, I sit in my backyard. Black coffee is my only companion in enjoying the night. I usually have trouble sleeping in a new place. I just moved to my new house today and i have given up sleep hours ago. My watch tells me that it’s near dawn and i have to be in the airport early in the morning. My bags are not packed yet, I really like to procrastinate everything, even packing.

Oh how I hate to say good bye to the night and back into the lights of my bedroom. I hate it even more because the reason of this good bye is my morning flight to a city I secretly hate.

..because the night owns me
..because the night owns me
This is my post for the Day 1 challenge of writing 101.
I feel like i want to make a fiction.
Wish me luck!

@darkjasm in 2014

Moving out to a new year. Leaving behind all the things I’ve done in 2013. Memories of hurts, loves, hates, likes, joys, tears, dreams, and realities stay and keep in my mind forever. All that I’ve ever been through in 2013 no matter small or big they are, shape the new me.

First thing I decided about my blogging life this year is gonna make my self committed in joining the Zero to Hero blogger. Commitment in blogging is my very big problem, always. I keep saying that I have to update my blog regularly, but I keep having trouble keeping it, due to many reasons my mind has made up. The new me is really eager to accomplish this 30 days assignments to prove that I really am a girl who can keep my promise.

The day 1 challenge is to “introduce yourself” which I’ve done a couple weeks ago by updating my about page. Due to my commitment, I need to post something about my self to fulfill the very first challenge, so I want to introduce my self from a different angle. Why I choose “darkjasm” as my online identity.

Darkjasm literally an acronym of “The Dark Jasmine”. Jasmine is the name of my scout troop back in my junior high school time, when we were competing in the “Lomba Tingkat Nasional” (National Ranger Scout Competition). I experienced many things during the competition and found the meaning of a true friendship in my troop. My school sent two troops to compete, the other troop is the boy’s and the name is Crow. Crow, as we know is a Black bird that often associate with a bad luck. My interpretation of my love for the boys is adding the “dark” before the Jasmine. And these facts are also the reason behind my love for black and white.

What do you think about my introduction?

Much Love,

The Dark Jasmine
