My Now-Reading: Another GRRM’s Work

I promised to save some money and buy a Kindle, so that I won’t have to buy ‘physical’ books anymore… But then I ended up buying this GRRM book when I saw it at the bookstore. My excuse was that I miss reading his writings so bad and the 6th book of A Song of Ice and Fire is (still) not here yet! :p

The book is worth-buying, though. I’m already read 1/3 of it in no time and now I’m trying to slow down, lol. ❤️

Crafting: Lebih dari Rajut-Merajut

Sudah lama sekali saya enggak posting soal rajut-merajut di sini. Beberapa tahun ke belakang, saya lebih suka posting hasil rajutan di akun Instagram saya. Praktis soalnya, ada macam-macam filter untuk membuat foto lebih keren, dan konsepnya lebih picture-centered. Ini ada positif dan negatifnya sih. Positifnya, dalam hitungan menit apa yang ingin dibagi di dunia maya bisa langsung terpampang–karena enggak perlu memikirkan tulisan panjang lebar; cukup fokus pada kualitas foto dan caption pendek. Negatifnya, (1) saya jadi semakin malas menulis dan (2) enggak ada cerita menarik yang dibagikan, yang mungkin sedikit banyak bisa menginspirasi; hanya ada foto dan caption. Oh, anyway dan FYI, sudah tiga bulan ini saya temporarily deactivate akun Instagram (that’s another story to tell). Continue reading “Crafting: Lebih dari Rajut-Merajut”
