commitment…

Beberapa hari ini, kepikiran soal benda satu ini. Tadi sih rencananya judulnya, Commitment: Between Work and.. Marriage?? Well…

That day, during my job interview.

“This interview is like boyfriend and girlfriend want to know more about each other, you know. We really need your commitment”

well, I paraphrased that one..

Keinget juga waktu zaman-zamannya Mike Portnoy “cerai” dari Dream Theater. In the early days of the split, he always brought up this marriage analogy.

Mungkin kalau kerja yang udah sampe saking lamanya, lama-lama berasa.. “married” to your work..?

Sebagai seorang fresh graduate yang baru dapat kerja (yang bener2 sampe berubah status jadi seorang “pegawai kantoran”) and still unmarried, this similarity may feel a bit unsettling. Well.. so far, I just have some idea about the how “work” part feels like.. still have not really consider the “marriage” part

Is it because, in both case, we are kind of having no idea of how long this will last, and want to hold on to it as long as possible?

Kalau zaman sekolah atau kuliah dulu kan seenggaknya kebayang endingnya kapan, mau ending yang sesuai jadwalnya, atau ending yang lebih telat dari yang semestinya, atau ending yang nggak disangka-sangka karena satu dan lain hal. Seenggaknya ada bayangan, nggak bakalan di sekolah atau di kampus terus, ya siapa juga mau di sekolah atau di kampus lama-lama sampe kapan tau.

Kalau begitu baru keterima kerja, dan udah mulai ngerasa kerjaannya cocok, tempat tinggalnya cocok, mungkin bakal ngerasa.. I guess I “stucked” here.

On the “marriage” part, I guess no one will expect to end their marriage when they just got married.

sidenote: do I still committed to this blog? well…. maybe need another post for that :p
