mikaelaldo "The guidance"

Another continuation of "One Day." Feeling remorse of what he's done, he heard a faint voice coming from the deadwoods. It was the voice of the wise, and its words echoed, guided the lost, forgotten man.

mikaelaldo I guess I'm better late than never. So here goes #20factsaboutme

1. Jakarta born, Bekasi bred person. Had an amazing childhood, and still have a great life.

2. Survived lots of head bumps as a kid. One of them was when I got pushed into a ditch by @natashasinsoe and my head bled.
3. Also once made instant noodle above a candle lit because neither me nor my brother could turn the stove on back then. There was nobody home but us.

4. I fell in love with photography when I was 14, and my heart still falls for it.
5. I have 4 really good friends, a.k.a the willing models. Our souls met even before my body was born.

6. Read a lot of self-help books, some biographies, also Murakami. Listening to the sound of the rain while reading any of them makes me very happy.

7. I must eat every 2 hours, otherwise I'll end up looking as skinny as Christian Bale in "The Machinist." 9. Been having eczema that can be really bad sometimes.

10. Woods, cabins, and mountains are my second home. They are basically my source of serenity.

11. I think I look like my mother a lot.

12. I play piano sometimes, and perform my solo performances when no one's home.

13. I believe that memories, no matter what kind, are the source of living.
14. Fave number!

15. I've climbed two highest mountains in Indonesia, and those were great memories I'd never forget.

16. I'd never consider anything impossible.

17. I have some life goals and one of them includes living in a treehouse.
18. I always try to start a day with a big heart, and end it with as well.

19. I think about death a lot. Whoever's it is. Bcos the more I think about it, the more I think about life and how I should live it.

20. Oh, this photo? A picture of me standing against my window.

mikaelaldo Inhale, exhale.

Climbed Mt. Rinjani (3726 masl), the 2nd highest volcano in Indonesia. Left my heart on one of mother earth's greatest creation, and watched Lombok from above the clouds.

mikaelaldo I will not publish any of the "One Day" remaining pictures in the near future,

as they have to be published in order. There are at least four final images left before the series end. To create those, three of them require me to travel out of province and yet I haven't got the chance to. Hopefully, soon enough. Here's to another adventure of the series!

mikaelaldo I graduated today.

As my dad drove me to school today, I found myself looking back to the first time he did. I was totally different back then. I even wished I'd never enter the school, blinded by my obsession of getting into the school I wanted but I didn't.
I filled my first year with regret, hatred. I had never been such a hateful person. All I did every single day was literally just to study the hardest and keep myself unknown, then a year later I realised it was unhealthy at all. My 366 project was my escape. That first year, I gained scholarship for being one of the smartest students. However, it felt like I didn't earn it the right way, so I learnt something from it.

These three years of my life have been the greatest. These three years were full of risks but I dared to grow. I chose to. Now that I've graduated, I don't know what's my future is gonna be like, but I'm willing to take risks. I will always grow.

  •   artandbeauty101 I would always try to feel like I was a better person, more valuable because of the way I studied, worth something because of my As, but I was freed by Jesus showing me that all my effort isn't good enough to save me from not feeling good enough, that He is the one who deserves all the praise and I don't need any praise from other people to be happy, I just need Him to be really close to me. 5mon
