So i've come up with the idea to write this while sitting my ass for about 3 hours in a shuttle travel on the way to Cimahi, yeah cimahi city, ya bish   Lemme start with a rant:   All of you probably had that 'time' when you're alone sitting, waiting, on the road to your destination, and felt super bored and anxious because you don't know what else to do. If you never experienced or don't have a problem with that 'time' then that's good for you (translate: fuck you and your tranquility), because for me this feeling is somewhat miserable.   Moreover, right now i'm stuck on a traffic jam, on a highway, yep on. a. fucking. highway. Highway doesn't supposed to get a traffic jam, but life's a bitch I suppose. See this is what I become by being miserable. You know sometimes I just want to be able to teleport, or could fly, or don't have to go somewhere at all. Well to put it simply, I JUST HATE WAITING ALONE OKAY!!!??   Then It comes to me like a divine revelation, being miserable don't help you at all, so with this I decided to write some stuffs, that you can possibly do rather than being miserably in pain while waiting.   Sleeping Ok so if you have the ability (yes sleeping is an ability, not everyone could sleep so fast) to sleep from the start of your journey until you arrive on your destination, then you'll be alright, seriously like super alright Rating: 10/10, bless you   Listening to music Who doesn't do this on the road? This sounds like a good idea, listening to your favorite music while you watch the scenery of nature unfolds beside you. Imagine you had just 100 songs on the playlist, and thinking that could be enough for more than 5 hours ride! Except that sometimes you could really get bored fast, especially if that playlist is the one you listen every day, then it would get to skipping the songs until you realize it's near the end of your music library, and you're still stuck on the traffic jam, yeah poor you and your music library. Rating: 6/10, prepare a bigger music library next time   Reading You remember that book that you wanted to read badly and felt like now, when you're alone on the road, is the perfect time to start reading? Yeah I've tried this, two passages in and, hmm how to put it, you know the light headed feeling when you're sick? and now multiply it by hundred. Oh boy never I felt so dizzy in my life. If you have no problem reading while on the move then that's good for you (translate: fuck you I'm jealous) Rating: 2/10, yo my head is spinning like yo-yo   Tinder Alone? Check. Sexual urge? Check. Vanity? Check. If all checked out, then you might wanna try Tinder. Yep checking on this godsend apps is really perfect for wasting time alone. It's really fun isn't it?! Checking on girls (or guys to you girls) swiping right and left, can't wait to get a match, to talk to someone new, until you realize what the fuck are you doing, this is the reason why you're alone. Rating: 10/10 at first then it all goes downhill from there   Snapchat Stay relevant, use snapchat. Seriously I don’t get it, I see the appeal, but nah, still don’t get it. Maybe if I lead a super adrenaline-pumping life and travel to somewhere new every day, Snapchat would be like my oxygen. But if you got nothing to do, like sitting in the comfy seat in a somewhat not-so-comfy journey, what would you snap (is this the right thing to say? Snap? Snaps? Snapping?)? the scenery? The seat in front of you? Maybe it’s fun, maybe it’s Maybelline® Rating: dunno, never snaps   Daydreaming This is my favorite. John Lennon said to us if we can imagine a world without heaven, hell, countries, religion, etc. I bet a dollar he’s daydreaming when he made that song. Good things, eh? But careful though, too much indulging yourself in daydreaming could make you sort of deluded, and by the time you finished, you realized the car you’re in only move several cm, yeah traffic jam is a bitch Rating: 5/10, fun at times, scary sometimes   Selfie Lol, jk   Truthfully when I’m writing this particular paragraph, I’m way past the traffic jam, past the rest areas you could find on the highway, past the countless paddy fields and forests outskirts, past the “welcome to bandung” sign you find when you get out from the toll road. Truthfully I only wrote until number 3 when I was stuck on the car, the rest is for the sake of continuity. Why 7 things? I like number 7, that’s why. But then, when I see the notes again in my phone, I was confused on how to finish this writing. Looking back, I wrote this because I felt miserable on waiting and didn’t know what to do, I wrote so many curse words with the tone that I’m not so proud of myself. So how do I finish this thing and still make this writing meaningful? So I tried this, let’s go to number 7 on the list of 7 things you should do when you don’t know what to do   Calm down Didn’t see that coming did you? Me neither. But hear my case, rushing things when you don’t have the will or power to do will only make you feel more miserable and stressful and kick your anxiety up a notch, it’s not good for your health too. Calm down, take a deep breath. Takuan Soho, one of my favorite character in Vagabond, a Japanese manga, said this amazing gem: tumblr_n51i85F5lw1sjtbsoo1_500 Rating: ∞/∞ it’s like you divide by zero
