Okay *inhaling deeply*
First of all, i'm really sorry to break my own promise to post a new artwork. This one would be another rant. But i'll make it short. It's just that i have to spit it out to feel better :)
So, 2 days ago, an epic shit happened. We're supposed to have a 3-days big event, after months of hardwork, but the event got canceled. On the D-day. Yes on the D-day. When everyone were ready. When the spirits were high. When everything were set. And just half an hour before the opening, the venue's owner canceled it all. zap. all. No negotiation. We just stood numb and could do nothing about it.
People were mad and dissapointed. There were more than 70 tenants and bands have to pack their things back. But all the protests and anger couldn't change the fact that our event has been cancelled. I, myself, funnily did not feel anything. It was just like somebody has drained all the energy out of me, but i didn't feel any emotion at all. I was concerned more about my friend who was in charge of the event and had worked a thousand time harder than i was preparing this event. I couldn't imagine how he felt at that time.
And now all we have is this mess to be taken care of. Luckily many people keep supporting us, thanks guys you know who you are :) And yesterday, a quote keep playing over and over in my head, it was once said by my friend, Uci :
"Terpeleset itu sakit. Namun bodoh kalau kita tidak mau bangkit. Masa mau jalan ngesot?" :)
I can't translate it properly but i think it goes like this more or less:
"It hurts to fall down on the floor. But it's stupid if you don't want to stand up again. What are you going to do? crawling?" *um, don't think "crawl" is the exact translation but couldn't find a better one than that* :p
Okay so let's stand up and get on with your life. Shit happens, yet life goes on :)
Have a nice day everyone! gambatte! :)
