the linear life

anonymous asked:

I've been following your tumblr for some time and all your posts, especially the ones about space/aliens/time being a construct/exploring the "linear" things in life are a big help. I believe in that stuff and find it fascinating to learn but I'm always scared ppl will think I'm weird (it's arrogant to think there isn't other forms of life beyond ours and who can 100% say time travel isN'T real or possible?)

I concur. It is the height of idiosyncratic stupidity to believe we are alone. I am unclear on time travel from our 3D perspective so cannot comment. Beyond that we all need to stay open to other possibilities. That is intelligence. 

Non-Linear Life Story

Sewaktu kecil punya cita cita jadi dokter. Semakin besar punya cita - cita jadi Intelijen. Lalu kuliah di teknik fisika, banyak belajar tentang Oil and Gas, energy, dan elektronika. Tapi karena sangat mengaggumi B.J Habibie, punya cita cita kerja di Airbus.

Selama kuliah kerja hanya ngurus BEM dan 3 tahun di kementrian sosial politik, jadi rajin demo, kuliah seadanya aja. Tahun terakhir, dapet project dari YLI on Behalf YLI and McKinsey untuk jadi Pro Bono Consultant ngurus supply chain jagung untuk Cargill.

Entah darimana dapat tawaran S2 dan beasiswa ke Perancis, dijalani. Lamar internship ke Airbus, ditolak (kalo diterima ga balik ke Indo). Dan diterima internship oleh EDF Perancis untuk riset paten baru instrument nuklir uni Eropa di Polandia. Ngurusin per-nukliran dan instrumentnya.

Lulus S2, di minta profesor disana untuk stay lanjut S3 dan tinggal di Perancis, dan saya menolak.  Sekarang lagi berusaha submit jurnal internasional untuk hasil riset internship di Polandia.

Pulang ke Indo, ngurus pesantren, bisnis kecil kecilan dan diajak start up-an. Lanjut, masuk perusahaan telco di Indo yang sedang metamorfosis ke digital sambil jadi dosen di Perguruan Tinggi swasta, start up dan usaha socioprenuer yang lagi dirancang. Lanjut sambil kerja invest - invest kecil sambil belajar. Makin kesini sering sharing dengan tokoh, pengen jadi pebisnis.

Jalan hidup ga linear sama sekali, tapi Allah selalu tau yang terbaik dan sebaik baik pembuat rencana. Bismillah untuk langkah - langkah selanjutnya :)

“Trajectories aren’t linear. Life’s just a roller coaster. If you’re getting a chance to do cool stuff and it’s varied stuff, just enjoy it. I guess I’m a believer in the randomness of life, rather than it being a linear trajectory, or an arc, a consistent smooth arc towards anything… Then again, I’ve never done a Star Wars movie, so what the hell do I know?”

Saw your post about feeling a lot worse now than last year and I wanna tell you it's gone like that for me before (with it being better before that) and gotten better again so I hope it does for you too and that it's a bit better soon!! Everyone gets setbacks so it's totally cool and in the long run I'm keeping my fingers crossed for ya!!

I’m just seeing this now, and I really want to thank you, this is truly very kind. It’s hard to keep in mind the whole “this, too, shall pass,” mentality. And stop thinking life is linear, that’d help. But this is really reassuring and made me feel a bit sunnier. Thank you ♡

Progress update!

It’s important to remember that weight loss isn’t linear. Hardship in your life will occasionally influence the scale but worry not. Consistency really does pay off in the long run!

Try not to focus on the numbers, and just work towards bettering yourself each and every day 😊

But what if they do manage to find Glendower and do wish for Gansey’s life - and save 10-year-old Gansey’s life? Non-linear time and all?

Eta.: To clarify, I meant that it’s their wishes that saves him in the past, that makes it possible for his life to be exchanged with Noah’s, for him to become obsessed with Glendower etc - which is why he hears Glendowers name when he (almost) dies/comes back, because he’s already been saved by him, and now Gansey must go find him (so that this reality, the one where he doesn’t die from the hornets, comes true). Non-linear time and so forth! Same concept as with Ronan and the writing on the stones. (This also means that their wish has already been used up which… I don’t want to think about at all. )

Because recovery isn’t a linear process. Because life isn’t a linear process. There are ups and downs and downs and ups. But it’s always–always–worth it to try again. Just one more time. Today, tomorrow, next week, next year. You’ve gotten through it before, and you’ll get through it again. Even if it’s for the 100th time.
