1. Asking for a raise.

The truth is simply that many of your male colleagues — and superiors — are going to estimate a bit less of you, even without realizing it. And they’re going to assume that you won’t have the, erm, spine to ask them for what you rightfully deserve. After all, it is statistically much less likely for a woman to fight and argue her way up the corporate ladder. Which makes it all the more essential that you be the person who walks right into the corner office and demands to be paid what you are worth. It’s not fair that we have to fight harder, but if we’re going to play their game, we might as well go big or go home.

2. Turning someone down who deserves it.

There are any number of reasons why we might stay in a relationship that is not…

31 Great Quotes About Being In Your 20s

I think your 20s are the hardest part of life. I mean, everyone goes on about how hard it is to be a teenager, but actually I think it’s tougher to be in your 20s because you’re expected to be a grownup and expected to earn your own living and be successful and I think you feel like a kid still. Nigel Cole
Every woman in her late 20s goes through a period where she just doesn’t believe love is out there anymore, but it is. And I think the minute you stop looking for it is when it comes for you. Kristen Bell
There’s an ‘Everything must go!’ emotional liquidation feel to the end of your twenties, isn’t there? What will happen if we turn thirty and we’re not ‘ready?’ You don’t feel entirely settled in any aspect of your life, even if you are on paper. Sloane Crosley

simple, but not easy


I originally wrote this article for my work newsletter.  I wanted to share this story in this blog because I believe there are many lessons from my weight loss journey that you can used in managing any organization.

In case you haven’t noticed, I have lost over 40 lbs. Picture 40 sticks of butter…that is what I was carrying on my body. Not necessarily a healthy sounding image, is it? I would like to thank all who noticed for your positive comments and your encouragement. It has helped me remain loyal and consistent to this new lifestyle.

One of the most common questions I get is, ’How did you do it?

The simple answer is: eat less, eat better and exercise.  Everybody has heard this ‘secret’ of weight loss…it’s simple but not easy. For myself, I have always struggled with my weight. My weight has gone up and down many times…

sudah lama sekali ingin nulis sesuatu di blog yang udah lumutan ini. masuknya aja harus ngubek-ngubek email cari usernamenya. maklumlah udah setahun lebih. tapi malam ini gue bertekad harus nulis sesuatu di blog ini. 

sebenernya tadi ada yang mau gw tulis deh sumpah beneran. tapi lupa gue catet. pas baru mau nulis tiba tiba meythia annisha datang bersama ami jalil. mereka adalah penggila korea sejati. sampe-sampe gw ketularan juga gitu. muehehehe.

jadi icha (panggilannya meythia annisha) ini temen dari sekolah smp kenalnya malah dari sd. tapi kenal akrab banget waktu sma. kalo ami dari smp juga, akrabnya adalah karena ada misi-misi penting ajah yang terlalu memalukan untuk diceritakan disini. 😀 

setelah satu dua cengkrama akhirnya keinginian buat posting yg gak tau mau posting apa juga sebenernya malah jadi kealihin sama update-update skype. segala vid call dulu. udah kelar akhirnya sekarang baru marilah kita tulis.

udah tulis sih dari tadi juga. cuma apalah gak penting itu semua buat diinformasikan buat yang masuk blog ini. keinginan membuat kata-kata yang bagus tidak sejalan dengan kemampuan membuatnya. ibaratnya nafsu besar tenaga kurang. hiks hiks.

yasudah lah nulis segini juga udah alhamdulillah banget sih. 

Just a story

Hari ini gw abis chat sama seorang teman tentang keprihatinan kita dengan seorang.teman yang lain. Jadi si teman kita ini sedang menjalin hubungan dengan seorang lelaki. Namun hubungan mereka mengalir gitu aja tanpa ada kata.jadian. Setelah dijalani sepertinya kurang berjalan mulus. Si temanku yang notabene wanita sabar diuji kesabarannya dengan kelakuan si pria yang bisa dikatakan egois dan sok kegantengan. Kedengaran kayaknya gw belain yang cewe gitu yah. Hihihi

Karena hubungan mereka tanpa ada kesepakatan alias jadian, sepertinya sulit bagi teman gw untuk melepas lelaki tersebut. Yang ada temen gw nih makin hari makin kesian aja sama kelakuan sama tingkah si cowo yang agak nyebelin itu.

Kalo menurut gue sih sebagai cewe kita harus punya sikap, supaya gak diremehin atau diperlakukan seenaknya aja gitu sama lelaki. Kadang emang bukan salah cowoknya juga cuma ceweknya juga sih ngebiarin si cowi cowi nyakitin mereka.

i found some words on twitter

“@TheSupreme__: just because you love a person doesn’t mean you allow them to mistreat you…”

kita harus punya sikap, jangan sampe karena alesan cinta bikin kita jadi nyakitin diri sendiri. 

so cewe cewe kalian harus punya sikap. girl power pokoknyaa
