COMPLETE HOGWARTS HOUSE EVALUATION : 003. RAVENCLAW

G e n e r a l - P e r s o n a l i t y
It is quite common for Ravenclaws to hide their true selves in public. This makes them quite the mystery to the untrained eye, a curious puzzle that some may want to figure out, and with good reason. Ravenclaw is the virtuoso of the houses in Hogwarts, as they are filled with those who excel in many intellectual and artistic aspects of life. Ravenclaws are incredibly focused in every sense of the word, as they focus on the details of whatever their passion may be, and they also see the big picture well enough to know they should focus on all parts of their lives in order to achieve success. Ravenclaws are observant and curious, often preferring to watch people from a distance, rather than interact. 
P o s i t i v e - & - N e g a t i v e - T r a i t s
The most positive trait of a Ravenclaw is very often their intellect. As well as general knowledge of most things, they also tend to specialize and focus their interests, and can become like walking encyclopedias of specific areas of study or hobbies. They can get lost in this world of their own curiosities, perfectly content to stay in their own mind.
As well as this, Ravenclaws are often very easy to please, so long as they are alone. This is because they can please themselves, and they hold very high standards for others, as if they should be able to read their mind. So, when a person does not do as a Ravenclaw expects them to, they can become annoyed or bitter, thinking lower of the individual. They can be incredibly judgmental in this manner, though some more than others. Ravenclaws are fantastic at hiding their emotions, and can seem perfectly kind and sweet to you, when in all reality they do not care for you at all.
Another trait of Ravenclaws that may be considered less than favourable is that though they are brilliant in designated areas, they can at times lack common or social sense.They do not understand very simple things at times, simply because they do not believe they have the time for them, nor do they care. They are just fine with this, but others around them may not be.

An incredibly common sign for a Ravenclaw is Virgo, as they both thrive for perfection and order. This doesn’t mean they are control freaks or absolute nuts about having everything a certain way, they just are very independent in wanting things how they want it, and if it isn’t that way, they can stress out easily. Sagittarius is very common among Ravenclaws as well, as they tend to be observant and imaginative.
H o b b i e s
The virtuoso aspect of Ravenclaws mean they have a wide array of hobbies quite often, though they tend toward things that challenge their mind, rather than athletic ventures. This means they enjoy writing, fiction or non-fiction, reading, drawing or other forms of design, and musical instruments, that being only a taste. A gentler Ravenclaw may also enjoy caring for animals.
F r i e n d s h i p s
Ravenclaws make as good as friends as any, and can be loyal in their friendships. However, if you are looking for someone jumping at any and all opportunities to spend time with you or have fun in big groups, then you are not looking for a Ravenclaw. They feel uncomfortable in large crowds, and much prefer to have a few close friends, ones that enhance them mentally and challenge them to be better. They may find most of their friends in their field of work or study, as then they feel more relaxed as if they have more in common with an individual. They are not ones to start fights or cause drama, they just enjoy having a few people to rely on when need be, and lend a helping hand for if they have to.
I n t i m a t e - R e l a t i o n s h i p s
Getting a Ravenclaw into a relationship can be a difficult task, as they are not the romantic types. Before they think about diving into a relationship, they will often weigh their options of whether or not one will fit into their life, or whether or not the person fits into their mold of what they have mapped out for themselves. They are strict in this tactic, so much so that their evaluation for lovers is only beaten by Slytherins. If a Ravenclaw finds you worthy of their time, they may not be very affectionate at first, but you must give them time to warm their heart and believe you are part of them, and as this progresses they will become sweeter with you, and airy in their love.
T y p o l o g y
The average typology for a Ravenclaw is INTP (Introvert-Intuitive-Thinking-Perceptive). This varies for everyone, of course, but by nature Ravenclaws are quiet, watching things and thinking over what they mean and how they work, rather than jumping right into the action.

Note: This section of the analysis is not diagnosis, just a common observation. Do not take it as a diagnosis, nor ask me to diagnose you. If you believe you may have a disorder of some kind and are concerned about it, please seek a professional.
Ravenclaws can be rigid perfectionists, and need everything to be a certain way, almost to the point of obsessive compulsion. In fact, many of them may think if they don’t do something they way they believe it should be done, something terrible and life-altering could happen. They also can have very eccentric or strange ways of thinking compared to their more social counterparts, as they rarely give into peer pressure, and therefore express themselves as they see fit, though this is in no way a fault. The more feeling Ravenclaw may be prone to depression, as they feel they are cut off from the world, not seeing that it is in their nature to be independent and that they are happy this way, so instead they think there is something wrong with them and they divulge into sadness. Often they do not know how to remedy this themselves, so if you are close friends with a Ravenclaw and they seem down, it is best to reassure them they are a unique and beautiful soul. Other than friends, the outlets they may use to cure their depression are other worlds, such as novels or movies.
R e l i g i o u s - V i e w s
Ravenclaws often can one of two extremes with religious views, the first being that they can be incredibly and deeply spiritual. This can be for any religion of course, though they tend to lean toward ones that involve the universe as a whole, rather than one all powerful God, as that idea to them seems highly unlikely. The other path a Ravenclaw often goes down is that of science, believing everything happens due to actions and reactions, that there is no higher power, and that the Earth is the way it is due to science, and we can easily find ways to explain everything in the world if we try. 
P o l i t i c a l - V i e w s
Though they are not usually outspoken, Ravenclaws adore debate. They love the idea of an intellectual back and forth firing contest, to see what others think compared to what they do. They will not talk to extremists about things who are ignorant in their ways, but want a mature, intelligent conversation about what is going on in the world. If you give this to them, they will be very pleased in having talked to you, and it is people like you that give them a spark of interest in the world of politics, not politicians. 
C a r e e r s
Common career and occupational choices among Ravenclaws are those in which they can enrich themselves while keeping others informed. The more social Ravenclaw may tend toward psychiatry or psychology, counseling, or teaching. The more logically driven one may tend toward forensic sciences, mathematics or architecture. Many Ravenclaws also adore the world of literature,  and enjoy writing of all kinds.
I d e a l - E n v i r o n m e n t
The ideal environment for a Ravenclaw is one where they feel like they are being productive, because if they are not working, they feel as though they are wasting their mind, and are therefore useless. They like challenges, and they like to feel like they are always going. Literally speaking, an environment which a Ravenclaw may like is on the chillier or moderate side, with little to no rain, as they feel the clouds of storms can cloud their thinking as well.
S e l f - P e r c e p t i o n
Ravenclaws often see themselves as the unique minds of the world, and have complete confidence in their individuality. They see themselves as somewhat superior to others, but are often kind about it and try not to boast about their own accomplishments. They seem themselves as success in the making.

The life of a Ravenclaw is their mission, they want to spread the words and images of their mind, show all that could be, and add more colour to the world.

Enak Di Rumah Terus

Adik saya yang besok baru mau masuk sekolah lagi setelah liburan panjang protes. Dia malas sekolah. Dia enggak mau sekolah.

Aziza: Enakan kakak di rumah terus.

Saya: ………

Ibu: ………

Saya: Kakak ini udah sekolah 20 tahun, baru juga lulus.

Phil Kaye & Sarah Kay // Origin Story

Sarah Kay: It started with a sweater.

Phil Kaye: I was looking incredibly fly. First day of college orientation as a freshman... plus, I'm the type of guy who's always trying to make a good impression.

Sarah: He looked like a tool. And it's the first week of school, so I've got people to meet and things to try. I don't have time to waste on this guy loitering backstage at a talent show.

Phil: It started with a freshman talent show, a chance to showcase what I know about spoken word and poetry and try and get some people to notice me.

Sarah: It started with a technical difficulty -

Phil: some sort of delay -

Sarah: somebody's iPod track wouldn't play.

Phil: So I'm stuck waiting backstage when I notice this girl -

Sarah: and he walks over, stupid sweater and all. There was nowhere to run, backstage was too small.

Phil: And I'm so nervous about going onstage, I decide to strike up a conversation.

Sarah: Oh, sorry, I completely got ahead of myself. I totally skipped introductions. My name is Sarah Kay.

Phil: My name is Phil Kaye. I'm from California -

Sarah: born and raised in NYC.

Phil: Let's see, fun fact about me -

Both: My mom is Japanese and my dad is Jewish.

Sarah: Not a common combination, but I think it's kinda cute. People call me Japajew -

Phil: Jewpanese -

Sarah: Ashkenazi kamikaze.

Phil: And come December -

Both: Hanukkah and Christmas!

Sarah: Plus, you should taste my mother's brisket. Jan has matzah ball soup with noodles...brings my father Jeffrey to his knees.

Phil: It took mom and dad to raise this lanky, cock-eyed, half-breed.

Sarah: Well, I think that's it. My mom, my dad, and me - oh, plus my little brother. He's eighteen.

Phil: My little sister is a deadpan firecracker. She's only eighteen, but she keeps me on track. Her name is Sarah.

Sarah: My little brother's name is Phillip.

Both: Anyway.

Sarah: Where was I?

Phil: It started with a backstage interaction.

Sarah: No, it started with a backward first impression.

Phil: Okay, well, I'll tell you where it didn't start. It didn't start at fifth grade summer camp.

Sarah: That's true, it did not start at junior lifeguards. Even though we were both there.

Phil: Matching red bathing suits, white t-shirts, visors, and our counsellor -

Both: Mr. Johnson.

Sarah: Who probably figured that the shy girl in his morning class -

Phil: and the skinny kid in his afternoon class -

Both: were... cousins?!

Sarah: Probably thought we carpooled over together -

Phil: in between family photoshoots and fourth of July barbecues.

Sarah: But instead, we merely co-existed -

Phil: almost met but always missed it -

Sarah: spinning around like two sides of a coin.

Phil: Look!

Both: We've done the research!

Sarah: And we swear, we're not related.

Phil: And we've never dated.

Both: And we're never... EVER... going to.

Phil: Because what are the chances of finding someone with your last name -

Sarah: Japanese and Jewish with siblings called the same?

Phil: What are the odds of finding someone -

Sarah: who can finish your sentences -

Phil: who will let you cut in line -

Sarah: who knows not to just lend a hand, or an ear when you need them to give you their spine -

Phil: who is woman enough to be best man at your wedding -

Sarah: who will keep every secret, save every letter, tell you how you really look -

Phil: who will remember every single one of your birthdays -

Sarah: without checking Facebook?

Phil: What are the odds of finding someone who knows your poetry by heart -

Sarah: who won't freak out if you're hanging out and accidentally fart?

Phil: Yeah. If you have a date and you need to look fresh, I will let you borrow my hair products.

Sarah: And if you don't have a date and you need to look fresh, I will let you borrow... my cousin.

Phil: I will always see you for the alley-oop.

Sarah: I will always save you a seat.

Phil: I will always pick you to be my partner even though you are terrible at handball.

Sarah: When the fire takes all you have, my home will be your home.

Phil: When you are old and can no longer remember my face, I will meet you for the first time again and again.

Sarah: When they make fun of your accent, I will take you swimming because we all sound the same underwater.

Phil: When Ellis Island tries to erase your past, I will call you by your real name.

Sarah: When they call your number for the draft, I will enlist to fight beside you.

Phil: And I will march with you from Selma to Montgomery and back as many times as it takes.

Sarah: We will stand together against the hoses and the dogs -

Both: because it didn't start with us.

Phil: It started with Lennon and McCartney.

Sarah: It started with Thelma and Louise.

Phil: It started with Winnie-the-Pooh and Christopher Robin.

Sarah: Bert and Ernie!

Phil: Abbott and Costello!

Sarah: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern!

Phil: Mario and Luigi!

Sarah: Watson and Sherlock!

Phil: Pikachu and Charizard! And they could tell you what a miracle this is.

Sarah: They could tell you how rare this is.

Phil: But they could tell you how rare friendship always is.

Sarah: The chances are slim.

Phil: The cards are always stacked against you, the odds are always low.

Both: But I have seen the best of you, and the worst of you, and I choose both.

Phil: I want to share every single one of your sunshines and save some for later.

Sarah: I will tuck them into my pockets so I can give them back to you when the rains fall hard.

Both: Friend -

Phil: I want to be the mirror that reminds you to love yourself.

Sarah: I want to be air in your lungs that reminds you to breathe easy.

Phil: When the walls come down -

Sarah: when the thunder rumbles -

Both: when nobody else is home, hold my hand -

Phil: and I promise -

Both: I won't let go.

Apakah Arti Puasa?

Ini sebetulnya obrolan dua adik saya, Mia (15 tahun) dan Aziza (5 tahun). Aziza memang agak... terlalu cerdas buat anak seumurannya. Tahun ini Aziza baru mau belajar puasa (setengah hari). Tapi di hari pertama, dia udah makan dua es krim dan bakpia di siang bolong. =))

Aziza (A): Kak, puasa itu ngapain aja sih?

Mia (M): Puasa itu enggak boleh makan. Enggak boleh minum. (jawaban standar buat 'anak kecil')

A: Tapi nanti kalau Ziza lapar, gimana?

M: Ya, kan, puasa emang nahan lapar...

A: Ah, Aziza mau makan diam-diam aja kalau Aziza lapar.

M: Kok gitu?

A: Kan enggak ada yang lihat, Kak.

M: Tapi Allah lihat.

A: Emangnya Allah ada? Allah di mana?

M: ....

M: ....

Akhirnya, Ibu memutuskan untuk memasukkan Aziza ke pesantren setelah lulus TK nanti supaya ada yang membimbing dia : "|

Sebuah Kabar di Pagi Hari

Jumat yang tak seperti biasa, mataku terbuka karena dering suara dari dalam tas. Kutekan sebuah tombol, berwarna hijau.

"Ya. Assalamualaykum Ibu."

Suara tak asing menjawab salamku. Lalu sebuah pertanyaan, “Sudah bangun, Nak?”

Ia tahu kalau tak biasanya aku bangun sepagi itu.

"Semalam," ucapnya pelan.

Aku menguap. Mendengarkan. Ini betul-betul masih pagi.

"Mas Wawan  kecelakaan. Meninggal."

"Ha? Apa?" tanyaku.

Iya, aku dengar. Aku mendengar ucapan ibuku. Jelas. Seperti sebuah marka jalan yang menyala di malam hari ketika lampu kendaraan menyorotnya.

Ibu mengulanginya, sekali lagi.

"Siapa? Siapa yang meninggal?"

Ibu menyebut namanya, sekali lagi.

"Yang betul?"

"Untuk apa, Nak, berbohong perihal kematian seseorang?"

Bukannya aku tak mendengar apa yang diucapkannya. Bukan. Kadangkala kita bertanta-tanya, pura-pura salah dengar, hanya karena kita tak mau percaya pada apa yang kita dengar. Aku pun. Rasanya kalimat yang melesat itu lebih cepat dari cahaya. Gambar-gambar mendadak berhamburan di dalam kepala. Mas Wawan. Sepupuku itu. Usianya mungkin belum genap kepala tiga.

"Innalillahi wa innailaihi rajiuun." Aku menggenggam sprei yang kusut, merasa butuh sesuatu untuk berpegang.

Hari Jumat, matahari belum juga lebih tinggi dari batas cakrawala.

Lalu aku terisak.

Tidak pernah luput janji Tuhan kepada hambanya.

Seminggu lagi Ramadhan tiba.

Aku diam-diam menangis, lama setelah Ibu menutup telepo pagi ini. Masih tak percaya.

rintihan-galau:

Cerpen atas ask Teki di sini. Nggak seperti Teki, sebenernya saya gak pandai nulis fiksi, apalagi cerpen. Jadi mohon maklum kalau abalan, ya.

Twist-nya itu, loh. Keren banget! :))

annisalovegood asked
Kak, jelasin ke aku dong, maksud "Bukan tuhan yang menciptakan manusia." itu apa? Sama maksud "Cogito ergo sum." juga. ^^

Halo, Annisa *lambai* salam kenal, ya :D

Wah, kamu mempertanyakan sesuatu yang saya tulis waktu lagi teler. Sekarang saya bingung harus jawab apa…..

Sebetulnya, yang bilang gitu bukan saya. Tapi Rene Descartes. Yah, begitulah. Bahwasanya menurut beliau pikiran manusia itu satu-satunya hal yang pasti. Kalau menurut pemikiran itu, berarti keberadaan tuhan ada itu semata-mata karena manusia berpikir bahwa tuhan ada. Gitu lah kira-kira.

A Little Note from Kampus Fiksi Emas (13-15 Juni 2014)

(tadinya mau ngepost di Wordpress, tapi maaf saya katro gak tahu cara ngelampirin foto di postnya, akhirnya post di sini aja *nangesh*)

Mulanya….

Kisahnya, bulan Desember 2013 lalu ada lomba yang diselenggarakan oleh penerbit DIVA Press, tapi khusus untuk para alumni Kampus Fiksi 1-5. Waktu itu saya langsung tertarik ikut, meski terus terang aja temanya agak-agak sulit. Kearifan lokal dibalut romansa. Waktu itu mikir, ini jenis makanan apa, coba? (Haha enggak, deh, bercanda). Yah, singkat cerita saya coba meminta dua teman saya untuk menilai cerpen saya dulu sebelum dikirim. Tahu enggak? Saya paling suka kalau minta tolong ngerepotin gini, terus dibalas pakai kripik maicih pedas level 10 a.k.a kritik pedassss. Maksudnya biar tahu kekurangan saya di mana. Setelah ada yang diperbaiki, barulah saya kirim.

Alumi Kampus Fiksi dari angkatan 1 – 5 banyak cerpenis dan orang-orang yang tulisannya diam-diam saya kagumi (soalnya saya kan suka jadi secret admirer—selipkan gambar muka memerah di sini). Enggak berharap menang, sungguh! Niatnya ikut meramaikan aja waktu itu.

Sewaktu pengumuman 27 besar cerpen yang terpilih, saya ingat banget, Pak Edi (CEO DivaPress) semacam bikin jantung saya mau copot. Saya bukalah tautan yang diposting di lini masa Twitter, ternyata ada nama saya! Senang bukan main, tapi katanya ada 7 orang yang harus dieliminasi. Mendadak saya langsung berhenti teriak-teriak girang, diganti dengan ekspresi cemas sambil guling-guling di lantai.  Dan Pak Edi itu nyebelin! (peace, Pak). Masa, ditinggal liburan ke Turki dulu sebelum pengumuman official 20 besar…. Tegaaa (ceritanya sirik).

Hari yang dinanti-nanti akhirnya datang juga. Alhamdulillah, saya masuk 20 besar. Cuma, ada satu kendala yang bikin saya galau tak kira-kira. Waktu itu saya baru didiagnosa terkena penyakit paru-paru yang cukup parah dan saya jadi takut kalau di hari-H pelaksanaan acara Kampus Fiksi Emas, saya malah belum terlalu sehat untuk ikut (jadi 20 besar ini akan diundang ke Jogja untuk acara tersebut). Tapi itulah, saya bertekad sudah sehat lagi di hari pelaksanaan acara itu. Untungnya di hari-H, saya bisa ikutan (kecuali pas acara jalan kaki mau ke Tlogo Putri, terpaksa saya nyerah sama kapasitas paru-paru yang belum normal—langsung bengek, padahal baru jalan kaki beberapa meter hehehe).

Si Kembar….

Tepatnya tanggal 12 Juni 2014, Kampus Fiksi Emas digelar. Saya senang betul bisa ketemu lagi orang-orang yang sudah lama tak saya temui lagi. Juga, terutama, bisa bertemu orang-orang yang selama ini hanya saya kenal lewat dunia maya dan grup whatsapp aja. Akhirnya saya bisa kenal langsung sosok aslinya.

Inilah pertama kalinya saya ketemu Fhea. Yang pertama mengatakan kalau saya dan Fhea itu mirip adalah Ghyna. Kalau mau tahu, saya ini orang yang paling enggak suka dimirip-miripin sama orang lain. Entahlah. Soalnya serigkali saya merasa emang enggak mirip. Waktu teman-teman saya bilang saya mirip Citra Idol juga bukannya bikin saya bangga disamakan dengan artis. Enggak. Habisnya saya enggak lihat sisi miripnya saya dan Citra Idol. Tapi waktu lihat Fhea…. Jrenggg! KOK BISA GINI? Maksudnya, saya agak syok juga kali ini. Eh, beneran mirip! Bahkan foto berdua aja jadi begini hasilnya:

barinianjarsari asked
Salam, ka.. aku boleh tanya sesuatu tentang magang di PTMI McDermott?

Wah, maaf baru jawab. Saya jarang buka inbox :(

Boleh, dong. Halaman web resminya ada di sini. Ini maksudnya mau nanya-nanya soal intern di sana, kan? Soalnya saya cuma magang waktu itu hehe. Biasanya kalau mau magang, memang harus masukin CV dan surat dari kampus (tergantung kebijakan kampusnya). Waktu magangnya juga minimal 2 bulan. Dan sebelum mulai magang, harus datang untuk briefing dulu, baru semingu pertama pelatihan untuk safety, dan lanjut magang deh :D

Itu aja deh dulu yang bisa saya jawab. Kalau ada yang kurang jelas jangan segan-segan nanya lagi. Hehe. Maaf ya, saya gaje.
