Then I made myspace because they have this official website where the fans can communicate to.
Not so long after, me and my best friend, Andra, started to make this novel inspired by McFly due to the intense feeling towards the band. That was the first Indonesian novel I have ever written. Two years later, we finally finished it for around more than 200 pages.
In 2005, the second year of junior high, I made the best decision from the best random thoughts ever. I made a band with the coolest girls I would like to keep for the rest of my life. I chose as a bassist; although I have zero experience related to bass. Guess why I chose bass? Yes. Because of Doug. As simple as that.
I could not imagine how sucks my life would be if I did not jump in to the that world. World where music as the president. I won't be like who I am now, with good people surrounding me, if I did not make a band.
April 2009, twitter barely launched in the cyber space. At first, it did not appeal to me since I was not quite sure about the purpose of it. But then, I made one because all of McFly members got their own personal twitter account. It makes everything easier and more simple using twitter as the media between fans and the artists.
From that moment on, I always been related to McFly.
though I fancy other bands, McFly is the only band I memorized all the lyrics. McFly also one of the reason I developed this deep and intimate relationship with United Kingdom and everything in it.
I'd say McFly came at the right time when I entered my teenage life, the first phase to live life based on my own choices.
I thank god for having the best best friends ever, the plan would not work 100% without Ryan and Andra.
Long story short, I met them face to face, hand to hand, you name it. I talked to them. Especially, I have told Dougie, he was the reason I played Bass and guess what, he seemed flattered. I've heard his voice, talking to me.
Once I was planning to go chase them to England and Australia for six years. None of the plan works though. But then, suddenly without any expectation, God has sets this plan, I do not need to chase them overseas, they come to me. Then I have seen them live. I was drowned among the songs I have been waiting for so long to sing along with them. They gave their best performance. I was completely satisfied. The best concert I have ever been so far.
The best day in my life.
If you ever heard someone says "I can't explain it in words" I've got to tell you, it's true. None of them were lies. It was something more than words. I feel like one of the American Idol contestant, and won the first place. It was like a dream come true. Or maybe it was something more than that.
I'm going to make this simple and quick, I met the love of my life after six years of waiting.
Been wishing for this too long I almost cried.
Been looking forward to see them live for like forever.
Been loving the guy since the beginning I know how to love.
Been writing too many fictions based on them.
Been using his persona as the reason why I made a band.
If you know how much I adore them, I can tell you, it is something above and beyond that.
If you have read a line somewhere between the paragraph, describing someone who fall head over heels towards someone and want the whole world knows, for me,
I want the entire universe to know that I have just met,
And I am planning to love them for the rest of my life.
I'd say, don't give up on anything. Good thing comes to those who waits.
This just a brief post before the exams which going to be held tomorrow. Your blessing would be lovely.
I'll see you soon!
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
by William Ernest Henley
Beauty appear in various kind of forms. And this morning, I coincidentally found one beautiful poem. Invictus. Through the pronunciation itself already tells you there is something about it. As if the word breathe in the life on your eagerness to look out what it means. Invictus means undefeated or unconquerable. This is my favorite line, "I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul." Oh dear lord, my blood goes tremble.
Aside this poem was written by one of British legendary, William Ernest Henley, this also known as the inspiration for Nelson Mandela to stand up from the struggle he suffered during his sentence in prison till it brought him up to be the president of South Africa and abolished the racism throughout the country. Some of his action fighting against the racism has been adapted into a movie called Invictus played by Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. Go spare your time to watch it by the weekend, double inspiration. xx
Anyway, I have been waiting for April somehow. In less than two weeks I am going to face my final exam. My anxiety towards thee, made me lost ounce of sleep. Both in good and worried way. You know the feeling you have when you just hardly can wait for it to come to an end and you are finally going to feel free like the air.
The line pretty much sum up everything.
Aside from the sun, I have set up plans. Lots of it. Ready to launch right after mid of April. I hate to be the spoiler of few, but I am going to tell you as if you'd care, as soon I have got the confirmation.
Meanwhile, keep your feet on the ground and finger cross! See you soon.
