Biar Getir Mengalir [bersama butir-butir air]

source
      Kau tahu. Kadang pelangi tak selalu bersama ketujuh warnanya--setidaknya [di setiap] ketika hujan telah lelah turun-- dan menghilangkan gundah ratusan pasang mata di belakang jendela-jendela. Ya. Kadang ia kehilangan biru di antara mega-mega kelabu yang riang melayang-layang di celah-celah langit sore [pun terkadang ia mencari-cari keberadaan ungu] di antara butir-butir air. Lalu getir, merasa ada yang berbeda [tak seperti biasanya] ia tak tahu.
     Kau lihat. bumi yang bulat masih ingin dibasahi, kala seniman-seniman jejak di jalan-jalan setapak bersorak--berharap tetes demi tetes rindu dari langit berhenti membuat riak [di genangan-genangan cinta. terabaikan. begitu saja] mengaharu biru dalam ragu. Andai waktu [bisa dibalik] bagai lembar-lembar dalam buku,  tentu aku [dan kamu] bisa tahu lebih dulu. Lalu getir, biar saja mengalir.

F.A.Q - Any Questions?

source
      Hello Everyone. I just realized: there are soo many questions (similar and different) submitted by all of you in the comment form, cbox, e-mail and SMS. And I also realized that I never answered (except via email and SMS). Gosh! How arrogant I am...
     I didn't mean to be arrogant. Seriously. I just confused to answer all of questions, coz some questions were private and I could not answer them, of course. hehehe. But finally, I decided to create a special post (or page) to answer many similar questions / Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) [inspired by Tavi Gevinson]. 


     Prepare a cup of tea or some snacks. Coz It's gonna be a very loooooong post!
Here we go!

Q: Is AUL HOWLER really your name?
     Aul is part of my birth name [see About me, here]. and Howler is not my birth name. Yes, Aul Howler is my pseudonym as a writer. ( in indonesia we call it: Nama Pena). Click here to know more about that name.

Q: Why do you write on blog?

     Writing is one of my hobbies. And I always feel happy when anybody read my writings. why blog? because blog is like my own public magazine. I shouldn't ask anyone's promisse to post my writings. Besides, every humans in the world are available to read it. Moreover It's simple and it's free!
P.S.
If you have short story or others, I'm more than happy to post it on my online magz, AOMAGZ. Just send it to my email or AOMAGZ email (Visit the page to know the steps/email). thanks!

Q:  You often write posts in english. why?
      Saya tidak bermaksud sok atau songong atau tidak cinta bahasa indonesia atau yang lain-lain lho. TIDAK SAMA SEKALI. Tapi yah, dengan menggunakan bahasa inggris, akan lebih banyak orang yang membaca blog ini (Maksudnya tidak sebatas orang indonesia saja). Walaupun sejauh ini teman-teman blogger saya yang berasal dari luar negri memang belum sampai ratusan (baru belasan blogger sih).
     Selain itu, saya sering menulis post dalam bahasa inggris karena saya suka pelajaran bahasa inggris dari SD, dan ingin menguasainya untuk suatu tujuan (masih rahasia). Jadi, dengan banyak2 menulis dalam bahasa inggris (walaupun kadang-kadang berantakan) saya berharap bahasa inggris saya semakin bagus. begitu...

Q: Where do you live?
     Padang - West Sumatra - Indonesia

Q: Why do you love owl?
     I don't know. I ever saw the owl character in Winnie The Pooh series, and Disney's comiks when I was in elementary school age and since that moment, I like it. Some years later, when I was in junior high school age, I randomly used "Owl_or_Aul" word in my friendster email/id (just because Owl=Awl=Aul sounds similar). Then, one of my classmate, Anne, called me owl. And until now, many friends often call me owl. And I thought, "Why don't I pick owl as my image?". That's why you see so many owl pics in this blog. Silly? :p

Q: Is it true that you write a novel?
     Yes, in the progress. Wish it will be published this year! :))

Q: Are you Fashionista / Fashion Blogger?
     NO I AM NOT. I post fashion attack post sometimes, because I'm just interested in it a little and I'm happy to be photographed. [Saya senang memfoto diri sendiri. Muahuehauhuae... semacam narsis :p  

Q:  Who's your photographer? / The one who took your photo?
     LOL. This question is the most-often question asked by people. I think I should answer it in a special post someday. Please wait! :)

Q: Do you love drawing?
     Yes I do.

Q: How do you find ideas for your blog posts?
     Many ways. Watching TV, reading magazines, surfing on internet (especially pictures), travelling, hanging out, etc are some ways to find ideas. BUT, this ways are available only for blog with random post (like this blog). You cannot travelling to find idea for blog post, if the type/genre of you blog is gadgets or electronic machine Tips. LOL

Q: What do you usually do in free time?
     Sleeping, travelling, hanging out, taking photos for blog, online, doing anything I couldn't do in everyday.

Q: How do you manage your blog?
     First, I'm not a full time blogger. I have many daily activities in the real life. So, I could not update this blog everyday. I try as often as possible. I use Toshibii-kun (my laptop) for blogging. sometimes on ICT in my campus, sometimes in internet cafe, etc.
     About the appearance, I try to design it by my self. Eventhough it's not too good, but I'm sure it's not bad too. hehehe. I don't want to buy domain coz I think http://Aul-home.blogspot.com is enough.The last one: I try to write all post originally by my hand. No copy paste. except some picture which I couldn't take by my self (I put the source, of course).

Q: How do you keep active on your blog during a long time?
     No. I'm not active on my blog sometimes (example: when I have examinations/tests, when I'm spending holiday somewhere, etc). But I see, some years in blogging (since September 2008) and still active ,was not easy. You know, many bloggers deleted their blogs because they were boring. And I tried hard  --seriously-- to not delete my blog because of the same reason. I hope I will never stop blogging. yay! #Spirit

I Am Not Alone..

      Hello everyone. How are you? I'm fine here -before you ask me back- LOL. Finally, The Mid Semester Test is coming. It will be started from tomorrow until March 15th. So, I think I'll be soo busy in preparing it. OMG. I still remember how hard the preparation I did last Desember, and I should do it again, tomorrow... ARGHH!!

I really wish, everything will run smooth and I get the satisfying results. Amiin...
Now, what about some fashion attacks?



I am wearing: oversized Bugathci Uomo purple shirt, sleeveless jacket,
yellow T-Shirt, old Cocky jeans, Owl-shaped-watch-necklace,
handmade bracelet, and Daddy's black shoes 

This is my first time wearing purple thing on my body. What do you think? Cool? Not bad? :p
Hehehe...

    Back to the topic. You know, I always feel like throwing up when I think about the tests. I feel nervous, and my brain feels like it is stirred. I also think I have to face this situation all by my self. I am alone. But thanks friends. When I read your comments in the similar post (some months ago), I feel better and stronger. Some of you said that I should pray, coz I have God -The One Who Always There for me- That makes me think, "So, I am not alone". Thank you friends!!

    Anyway, I need all day long and all night long to prepare my self for the test. That means, I'll lose many times for blogging. Too bad... But don't worry. I will always active in blogging (as often as possible), even though I will not post anything until my tests end :)

Wish me luck!
Toowhit Toowhoo!
~[u,u]~
