Long time no see, hm? I guess the last time I wrote a journal was more than a year ago... Wew ^_^'
How are you? I am live and well, btw.
This past year things had change pretty big for me. I changed job, went umrah (or little hajj, a kind of muslim's pilgrimage), and.. got married.
Well, more like.. met a man, fell in love, got proposed, and finally got married to him. All happened in the same year. A little crazy, eh? Indeed. But you know, I guess if God's willing, you cannot run from it. Destiny, they call it.
My marriage life so far is awesome, so.. I hope all of you have awesome life, too.
Went umrah also a BIG live-changing event for me.
Makkah (Mecca) and Madinah (Medina) were... truly AMAZING. I lost words to describe how wonderful to be in those cities is. Those are places I want to visit again, and again, and again. Prostrating and praying right in front of Kabbah was so.. wow.. amazing, wonderful, connected, serene, deep, ... well, it's a feeling you'll never forget. I feel so small there, so human.
And speaking of human.. WOW. Like.. WOW! Thousands and more people were there with you at the same time, just to prostate and pray to God together, circling the Kabbah, read Quran, etc.. and I guess all races and ethnic were presented, and disappeared at the same time. You are just a human, worshipping his God, between a million of other human. A truly unity in diversity.
And while Masjid Nabawi in Medina is a serene and soothing place, The Grand Masjid Al-Haram in Mecca is truly a diamond. Very beautiful, sparkling, and bright. And smells so good, even though hundred thousands of people visit it 5 times a day, all around the year. Speaking of good smell.. I was fortunate enough to put my face on the Kabbah's cloth, and MasyaAllah.. it smells sooooo goood.. You won't believe it since it's been touched everyday by pilgrimages. Well, it's really unforgetable journey to me. I hope all muslims around the world could taste it, aamiin..
I still remember that I own two lovely fanfic-writers two SS fanart, which.. I haven't finish yet (I deeply apologize, honey..), but I'll keep my promises and finish it ASAP, when I got time. I just hope my skill is still there to do it hehe..
I won't stop drawing.. but with my new responsibilities in work and as a wife (and I hope, also a mother soon), I can't do it as often as before. Pardon me.. T^T. But keep watching.. Maybe I'll drop one or two pieces sometimes.. And I hope you'll enjoy it
Thank you, and have a good day, friends..
